09:25:54  <Jogio> hi
09:26:45  <Alberth> o/
09:32:57  <Jogio> @planetmaker: can you look at STR_AI_CONFIG_NONE. It's just "(none)" in english and translated as "(keine)". But in the game script selection menu it has to "(keines)" I think.
09:34:40  <planetmaker> but AI config != game script config, no?
09:34:41  <Jogio> If it's possible to do something with genders, can you look at it please. Otherwise maybe just change the string to "-"
09:34:45  <planetmaker> or is it the same string?
09:34:58  <Jogio> yes I think
09:35:32  <Jogio> I found it ingame, and thought it has to be fixed
09:36:06  <Alberth> there is only one "CONFIG_NON" string
09:37:50  <Alberth> STR_AI_CONFIG_CAPTION                                           :{WHITE}AI/Game Script Configuration  <-- gs window uses AI prefix, it seems
09:37:50  <planetmaker> looking at it ingame, I see it *only* used for the GS
09:38:19  <Jogio> hmm
09:38:19  <Alberth> probably just the window prefix
09:38:43  <planetmaker> yeah, likely, Alberth
09:38:59  <Jogio> i try to clean AI folder for testing
09:39:02  <planetmaker> the AIs show as "ZufÀllige KI" which is greyed-out when not in use
09:39:12  <planetmaker> as you set the number of competitors in the top
09:40:13  <Alberth> STR_AI_CONFIG_CHANGE_GAMESCRIPT                                 :Game Script   <-- that confirms it

09:42:17  <planetmaker> Alberth, sounds like something to refactor when I'm bored... if that ever happens :D
09:42:40  <Alberth> a bored planetmaker?  unlikely to happen :)
09:42:56  <planetmaker> ^
09:43:06  <Alberth> at some point we'll change the window to more GSes :)
09:43:17  <planetmaker> :-)
09:43:25  <planetmaker> tbh, that does make sense
09:43:37  <planetmaker> to be able to combine town growth with nocargoal... or similar
09:43:48  <planetmaker> but I also see *many* problems ahead that road :-)
09:43:54  <Aristide> Hi planetmaker and Alberth =)
09:43:58  <planetmaker> we end up in a new NewGRF land-like thing ;-)
09:44:00  <Alberth> s/problems/challenges/
09:44:10  <planetmaker> ^ that's the spirit! :-)
09:44:28  <Alberth> well, I have plenty of those too :)
09:45:19  <planetmaker> hehe :-)
09:45:53  <planetmaker> if we have no challenges and tasks anymore we anyway could start digging. So, I guess, it's good this way :D
09:47:26  <Alberth> hi Aristide
09:47:40  <planetmaker> helo Aristide
09:50:08  <Aristide> =)
09:50:12  <Aristide> How are you ?
09:53:33  <Alberth> warm :)
09:54:41  <planetmaker> warm is the friendly description
09:54:43  <peter1139> so when do we get occulus rift support?
09:54:59  <Alberth> you don't have a patch for it?
09:55:07  <planetmaker> peter1139, I'm sure you have a patch? ;-)

10:08:27  <peter1139> well... no
10:08:55  <Alberth> bummer, so it's going to be a non-trivial addition :(
10:09:41  <peter1139> but hey, i have rgb company colours somewhere ;p
10:13:33  <planetmaker> :-)
10:14:16  <planetmaker> maybe we should abandon 8bpp palette and do an auto-conversion of that to 32bpp. Non-trivial for the animation, but likely feasible ;-)
10:14:39  <planetmaker> and nicely slows down game :-P
10:17:30  <peter1139> eh, it's already done for 32bpp blitters

10:27:16  <peter1139> "Back in 1992 computers were basically smart calculators with big screens (this is not a joke, kids)."
10:27:20  <peter1139> well that's pretty bullshit
10:30:30  <peter1139> "note that this is 1992 and there’s no Windows yet"
10:30:30  <peter1139> wtf?
10:31:05  <krinn> and i think the gathering was bigger
10:31:27  <peter1139> people were making demos way before then
10:32:34  <peter1139> factually that article is a load of tosh
10:32:37  <krinn> and the assembly wasn't about the coding language (even for intro and 64k compete it was imply), but about been a group, many demo were made in c & pascal and some part in assembly, the speed wasn't the key, the challenge was the result
10:44:25  <dihedral> and they don't even mention mac at that time?
10:44:40  <dihedral> OS6 i think it was at that time
10:45:31  <krinn> i remember demo on apple II, but the demoscene concept comes from amiga i think because of the battle crackers were doing with their cracktro
10:52:19  <__ln__> peter1139: today computers are smart calculators with small screens
10:54:36  <krinn> and it wasn't big screens, but small screens, inside big monitors yeah
10:59:23  <krinn> any of you had use cthugha ? (the oscilloscope proggy, not the cthulu god)
11:00:16  <planetmaker> btw, anyone feel to comment on my suggestion to move the off-topic forum et al below the on-topic forms over at tt-f? http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=67263
11:00:35  <planetmaker> please drop a note / your thought there :-)
11:02:32  <krinn> i'm not sure i get it, want move general at last pos ?
11:03:16  <dihedral> planetmaker, i only ever visit http://www.tt-forums.net/viewforum.php?f=55 :-P
11:03:16  <Alberth> it seems like a useful position, fitting below "read this first"
11:03:56  <Alberth> the only weird forum is the off-topic forum, but moving that on its own would also be weird

11:09:56  <peter1139> planetmaker, it is tt-forums, not openttd forums :p
11:10:25  <planetmaker> peter1139, the point is, that I find it actually very weired to have off-topc stuff first
11:11:03  <peter1139> then you should have transport tycoon sections first
11:11:04  <planetmaker> also things like forum feed-back etc is not exactly... a main forum imho and can well be at the bottom
11:11:53  <peter1139> really we should have our own forums
11:11:59  <peter1139> then you can do single sign on the and like
11:12:17  *** TheMask96 [martijn@polaris.ne2000.nl] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:12:21  <planetmaker> what good would it do to have our own forums with tt-f that well-established?
11:12:27  <peter1139> quite
11:13:28  <roboboy> you would get people on both sites having to have two usernames and so on so you'd almost lose the benifits of single signon
11:14:00  <dihedral> planetmaker, why care?
11:14:35  <planetmaker> dihedral, it's really only about the question "is it sensible to have off-topic stuff go first?"
11:14:55  <peter1139> well it's owen's forums, he can do what he likes :)
11:15:03  <planetmaker> I usually never see the forum sorting view as I go by the "what's new" view. Just noticed this IMHO oddity yesterday
11:15:11  <planetmaker> peter1139, that's not the question either
11:15:22  <planetmaker> of course he can.
11:15:31  <peter1139> so you never noticed, and now you are wanting change?
11:15:42  <peter1139> that's illogical too :p
11:15:49  <planetmaker> it strikes me as odd. And it will be what (new) users see.
11:15:54  <peter1139> no
11:16:04  <planetmaker> A forum which cares about off-topic a lot. but not about on-topic as it puts it below
11:16:05  <peter1139> new openttd users will see http://www.tt-forums.net/viewforum.php?f=55
11:16:12  <planetmaker> will they?
11:16:20  <peter1139> that's the forum.openttd.org link
11:16:23  <krinn> tbh planetmaker i even think it's a wise position, put "trash" forum bellow and people won't use it but trash on-topic forum
11:16:25  <planetmaker> I know
11:16:29  <Alberth> planetmaker: they see "General" above the group
11:16:55  <krinn> and you'll get a zillion obama thread in first one, so openttd one :)

12:18:57  <dihedral> planetmaker, if you were setting up a new community i would think that is a good question to ask. as the forums have existed for i don't know how long, i would beleve that discussion a restructure on that note is a waste of time

16:35:03  <Alberth> there is no relevance of the distance, except acceptance/delivery indeed

18:28:10  <dihedral> Xaroth, what do you think of geting news items pushed to the admin port?

18:30:24  <dihedral> actually - seeing as game scripts can interact with the admin port.... one could pass all details on one does not get
18:31:33  <Xaroth|Work> :|
18:31:49  <dihedral> what's wrong with that?
18:32:06  <Xaroth|Work> it's a workaround
18:32:32  <dihedral> no it's not
18:32:40  *** Jomann [~abchirk@g231206139.adsl.alicedsl.de] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
18:32:49  <dihedral> it's actually a perfectly valid way of extending the admin port without patching the game
18:32:55  <Alberth> imho, if you want details, spectate the game
18:33:10  <frosch123> or an excel plugin
18:33:18  <dihedral> hehe
18:34:22  <Xaroth|Work> Alberth: isn't that the whole point of the admin port
18:34:41  <Xaroth|Work> we get the economy info, the vehicle stats
18:34:52  <Xaroth|Work> afterwards infrastructure stats were added
18:35:03  <Xaroth|Work> so at that point it should also have been added to the admin port
18:35:40  <Alberth> where is the point to stop, is the question
18:35:43  <frosch123> anyway, if you can write the newgrf and map setup and the monthly nocargogoal results into a database, that would make http://wiki.openttd.org/NoCarGoal a lot more detailed
18:36:12  <Alberth> frosch123: for who?
18:36:25  <frosch123> for once to automate it :p
18:36:30  <dihedral> the evonomy info are stats on companies
18:36:34  <Alberth> ie what is it to the non-watcher of the game, how to curve of deliveries runs?
18:36:34  <dihedral> not on industries
18:36:40  <frosch123> and to figure out what numbers make actually sense, for different game lengths
18:37:25  <frosch123> Alberth: anyway, the point to stop would be when you can install a passive gamescript (one which only queries informaiton, but cannot run commands) via the admin port
18:37:32  <Alberth> imho nocargoal doesn't give enough information, it should tell me estimated cargo amount at the end
18:38:01  <Xaroth|Work> frosch123: you could use a passive gamescript to provide the dimensions of the map
18:38:01  <frosch123> i don't think it is linear
18:38:06  <Xaroth|Work> yet they are in the welcome packet
18:38:35  <Xaroth|Work> the fact it's a capability of one section should not mean it cannot be included in another
18:38:43  <frosch123> Xaroth|Work: currently there is only one gamescript at most :p
18:38:47  <Alberth> it's definitely not linear, as we continue to push the network to higher production
18:38:56  <frosch123> main reason to limit it to one was to avoid conflicts
18:39:09  <frosch123> but there are no conflicts if only one is allowed to do real stuff
18:39:23  <Xaroth|Work> frosch123: gamescripts are for interacting with the game
18:39:27  <Xaroth|Work> admin port is for administrators
18:39:45  <Xaroth|Work> you suggest using the game-interacting area to provide for admins
18:39:53  <Alberth> frosch123: my main point of when to stop was more about what do you log and what not, ie Alberth added a / track tile at position X at time Y   ????
18:39:53  <frosch123> well, call it adminscript then :p
18:40:03  <Xaroth|Work> Alberth: we already have that!
18:40:18  <dihedral> Xaroth, if there was no point in the communication between the two, there would be no packets for it ;-)
18:40:29  <dihedral> besides - what would you do with infrastructure updates
18:40:35  <frosch123> something which allows sending squirrel snippets across the admin port, executing them with the passive parts of the script api, and somehow get the result
18:40:49  <Xaroth|Work> dihedral: detect when somebody destroys hundreds of pieces of track?
18:40:54  <Alberth> Xaroth|Work:  crazy!
18:41:22  <frosch123> Xaroth|Work: when did that last happen?
18:41:24  <dihedral> Xaroth, analyze the docommands which are already present
18:41:33  <frosch123> there are quotas on such actions today
18:42:10  <dihedral> frosch123, they are on terra forming
18:42:15  <dihedral> not on removing your own tracks
18:42:24  <frosch123> terra forming, planting trees and clearing tiles
18:42:34  <frosch123> 3 independent sets
18:42:48  <frosch123> but ok, i don't know whether the clearing also considers owned tiles
18:43:20  <Alberth> you naughty frosch123, you removed your own line, just like that!  :p
18:44:25  <frosch123> i think it applies to all dynamite things
18:44:37  <frosch123> not to track conversion, removing signals or similar
18:45:04  <frosch123> but removing signals requires more skill, so unlikely to happen
18:45:10  <frosch123> you need ctrl or so
18:45:24  <Alberth> good, good, I'll just change the track type then :p
18:46:21  <frosch123> yeah, might be fun when coop uses purr
18:46:29  <frosch123> just randomly change some colors :p
18:50:07  <planetmaker> I have to agree though with xaroth. It doesn't make sense to need a GS in order to log XX with the admin port

18:50:32  *** tycoondemon [~ashnohoe@ip503d7ac1.speed.planet.nl] has joined #openttd
18:50:48  <frosch123> there are infinitely many statistics
18:51:26  <planetmaker> of course. But for instance infrastructure is already counted
18:51:37  <planetmaker> by the game. So... it's not like it's really adding anything
18:51:37  <frosch123> vehicle profit is also counted
18:51:42  <frosch123> ever per group
18:51:50  <frosch123> number of stations is counted
18:51:58  <dihedral> planetmaker, it is the easiest clean solution i can think of, to get hold of data you want which is not available directly
18:51:59  <frosch123> least profitable vehicle is checked
18:52:18  <frosch123> it just does not make sense to add every stupid statistic to the admin port
18:52:29  <frosch123> either allow adding custom statistics, or none
18:52:41  <dihedral> and it uses the json interface between the two to its full potential :-)
18:52:46  <frosch123> or very basic ones, like those we also display when joinnig a multiplayer game
18:52:51  <dihedral> no more patching the game for such stuff
18:53:35  <Alberth> dihedral: yeah right, it just moves from patching the game to patching the squirrel interface :p
18:53:37  <frosch123> alternatively to squirrel you could also try sql :p
18:54:03  <dihedral> Alberth, wrong. it makes USE of squirrel, rather than patching ;-)
18:54:12  <dihedral> its an interface that is present, why not use it
18:54:18  <frosch123> SELECT sum(profit_last_year) FROM vehicles WHERE vehtype='TRAIN' AND owner='1';
18:54:26  <dihedral> LOL
18:54:37  <Alberth> dihedral: but can you query everything that you want in squirrel?
18:54:38  <frosch123> how hard would that actually be?
18:54:57  <Alberth> just select?  not very
18:54:59  <dihedral> Alberth, you get way more information in the GS
18:54:59  <frosch123> to add a SELECT sql parser, and to define an table-like interface to the pools?
18:55:06  <planetmaker> I could tell you a point of contact for that question ;-)
18:55:41  <dihedral> planetmaker, let my guess 'fuzzy little ass' :-D
18:55:43  <planetmaker> look through the server list...
18:55:47  <dihedral> oh
18:56:09  <frosch123> SELECT count() FROM tiles WHERE tiletype='TREE'; :p
18:56:13  <dihedral> still, i have to think of luukland servers ... yet again :-D
18:56:18  <planetmaker> haha, frosch123 :-)
18:56:36  <dihedral> GS and admin port have means of communicating between them

19:07:03  <planetmaker> AquSe, you asked earlier. See what it is: https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/107191069901530811927/albums/5588142349480607121/5588142384912478386?pid=5588142384912478386&oid=107191069901530811927
19:07:22  <AquSe> Hahaha, now it makes sense.
19:10:10  <AquSe> Mmm I left my server running for 3 hours. My brother's main town is only at 2.5k while mine is at 11k. He has like 30 ships going to it and from it, while mine just has 60 buses connected to other cities. I guess buses ftw?
19:11:09  <Alberth> perhaps the combined covered area of bus stations is bigger?
19:12:10  <AquSe> Possibly, he has not that many bus stations transfering in his.
19:13:24  <Alberth> adequately handling all pax is not that important, more regular visiting the stations, and moving some pax
19:14:08  <Alberth> ie keep good stattion ratings
19:14:35  <andythenorth> so industry could just make arbitrary profts per month
19:14:35  <AquSe> pax?
19:14:44  <andythenorth> or could be based on cargo rates
19:14:59  <andythenorth> some industries could be more profitable than others (good / bad management)
19:15:12  <andythenorth> newgrf could set a multiplier for profit via cb
19:15:14  <krinn> or yours is city, and his not : http://wiki.openttd.org/Towns#Cities
19:15:28  <Xaroth|Work> dihedral: how do you expect to extract information from the savegame
19:15:39  <frosch123> andythenorth: obviously they should be more profitable if the transport is cheap, i.e. short distance
19:15:52  <andythenorth> frosch123: track each cargo packet? o_O
19:15:52  <AquSe> Nah, both cities. And I already read the wiki although it's kind of confusing.
19:15:59  <Xaroth|Work> I can extract docommand stuff from the admin port np
19:16:03  <Xaroth|Work> but not when just connected
19:16:04  <krinn> AquSe, pax : passengers
19:16:09  <Xaroth|Work> I can't see how much of anything is built
19:16:12  <frosch123> andythenorth: already done?
19:16:19  <Xaroth|Work> hence, it'd be nice for the server to tell the admin port that
19:16:34  <Xaroth|Work> just like the server tells all kinds of info when asked
19:16:58  <andythenorth> frosch123: so industry could track all originating packets, and the amount spent on transport?
19:17:17  <Xaroth|Work> and no offence, but claiming 'there are ways around that' or 'how far do we want to go' are excuses.
19:17:19  <frosch123> siliconvalley does that
19:18:15  <frosch123> Xaroth|Work: it certainly makes more sense to add a method which can supply you with any statistic, rather than adding 255 random fixed statistics
19:18:21  <krinn> Eddi|zuHause, that's pretty amazing! specially for such a company, and what a odd "bug" seriously, amazing
19:19:12  <Xaroth|Work> frosch123: in an ideal way the statistics system would be dynamic, but that all depends on how far we can go with newgrf
19:19:33  <frosch123> newgrf?
19:20:02  <Xaroth|Work> well, if you go for -all- stats, you also want to get train info and industry info
19:20:08  <Xaroth|Work> which is subject to newgrfs
19:20:20  <frosch123> yeah, and the script api has all that stuff

20:00:31  <Eddi|zuHause> s2.5 is a "fan" project, s2tng is a commercial product
20:00:47  <Eddi|zuHause> s1 had an "svga mode"
20:01:15  <frosch123> hmm, it even runs with 1290 x 960
20:01:28  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, it was a fairly large resolution
20:01:53  <frosch123> that's way more than graphics cards supported back then
20:01:58  <Eddi|zuHause> but i thought it was something 1024-ish
20:02:01  <frosch123> so, it's a really generic vesa implemenation :)
20:02:27  <Eddi|zuHause> or maybe it dynamically detected the largest available at 256 colours?
20:02:50  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, s1 came with vesa drivers
20:03:03  <frosch123> well, dosbox does not need a driver
20:03:10  <frosch123> it already has a vesa bios
20:04:03  <frosch123> ah, s1 lacks a fast forward
20:04:05  <Eddi|zuHause> i think i had lots of random crashes with s1
20:04:17  <frosch123> it always crashed for me when exiting
20:04:28  <frosch123> cannot remember ingame crashes
20:04:41  <Eddi|zuHause> it usually crashed on startup, unless i used a special boot procedure
20:04:55  <Eddi|zuHause> and when run in windows it couldn't save
20:05:26  <Eddi|zuHause> and something prevented me from using SVGA mode
20:06:09  <frosch123> ah, right, it did not run with nwdos' emm386, you had to use himem
20:06:29  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, something like that
20:06:30  <frosch123> i had something like 3 y/n questions in my config.sys
20:06:46  <Eddi|zuHause> and i always had some graphics error on the left border, like a blinking line
20:07:22  <Eddi|zuHause> i had a batch script that replaced config.sys/autoexec.bat depending on what game i selected
20:08:16  <Eddi|zuHause> i even made it draw boxes with escape-sequences for positioning the cursor
20:08:35  <frosch123> hmm, i wonder whether s1 uses palette animation
20:08:45  <frosch123> for stuff like water and trees
20:09:26  <Eddi|zuHause> i only know that civ1 used palette animation for water
20:09:32  <frosch123> the water animation is quite good actually
20:10:03  <frosch123> hmm, trees are not palette animated
20:10:08  <frosch123> they change shape :)
20:10:35  <frosch123> so, unlikely that only the water would do then
20:10:39  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, it's probably sprite animation, like people etc.
20:11:40  <frosch123> hmm, i guess s1 is in general more advanced than ttd
20:11:46  <frosch123> though it is a year older
20:11:57  <frosch123> it even has cargodist :p
20:12:48  <Eddi|zuHause> it had a weird pathfinder, i think. one that tried to find a path with the most flags inbetween
20:12:54  <frosch123> and i just cannot remember whether ttd used dos4gw
20:13:11  <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: least flags
20:13:17  <frosch123> not most :p
20:13:25  <frosch123> you can use that for routing
20:13:27  <Eddi|zuHause> that's not what the manual said
20:13:45  <frosch123> i did not read manuals at that time
20:14:11  <frosch123> but i certainly made sure that all busy paths had length 2
20:14:21  <frosch123> and that paths were "timetabled"

20:22:00  <michi_cc> The PharLap variant was called something like 386 DOS Extender or something like that, and was based on VCPI instead of DPMI like dos4gw and some others.
20:23:13  <michi_cc> TTD using dos4g*w* instead of dos4g would have been quite weired anyway, as the w specifically indicates bundled with Watcom compiler.

21:13:05  <planetmaker> imachine_, no patch needed. Vehicles do overtake. But they need be reasonably faster. And reasonably long straight patch. And non-articulated
21:14:13  <planetmaker> thus the impression easily may be that they never overtake
21:14:26  <planetmaker> and they don't if one of them is articulated
21:14:33  <AquSe> Autorenew only needs to be set in the server config to work, nothing else from the client is needed rite?
21:14:39  <planetmaker> thus might depend on your vehicle NewGRFs
21:14:55  <frosch123> AquSe: it's a company setting
21:15:00  <frosch123> you set it per company
21:15:31  <frosch123> you must have joined a company to see the actual value resp. change it
21:15:51  <imachine_> planetmaker, but, what about breakdowns.
21:16:25  <imachine_> planetmaker, there's one empty lane, I think they should choose a lane similarly to quantum mechanics with station visiting. otherwise, at least overtake the broken down vehs.
21:16:37  <AquSe> frosch123, so you mean if a company gets created when autorenew is off, the autorenew for that company is gonna be off or wat :3 I'm confused.
21:17:05  <imachine_> planetmaker, I see otherwise no reason to build one way roads other than directing my traffic - it does not help congestion much if it's still one lane that is used most of the time.
21:17:22  <planetmaker> yes, there's little other reason than directing traffic
21:17:34  <frosch123> AquSe: new cmopanies start with the client-side default settings of the company founder
21:17:35  <imachine_> planetmaker, congestion is important, later in game.
21:17:37  <planetmaker> yes, one could improve vehicle behaviour there.
21:17:49  <planetmaker> patches welcome :-)
21:17:51  <imachine_> especially with FIRS, where you do a lot of transporting more into the game.
21:18:03  <imachine_> imachine_, I setup 2 public servers ;-P
21:18:12  <imachine_> that's my contrib so far ;-)
21:18:12  <frosch123> AquSe: everyone part of the company can change it later on
21:18:28  <AquSe> frosch123: How?
21:18:36  <frosch123> with the gui?
21:18:43  <frosch123> go to advances settings
21:18:47  <frosch123> set the filter appropiately
21:18:54  <frosch123> and enable it
21:19:01  <AquSe> Yea
21:19:05  <AquSe> I see now
21:19:11  <imachine_> planetmaker, so they won't overtake broken down vehs and it's unknown to you if any plans are otw regarding this behaviour?
21:19:12  <frosch123> if it fails, checks the news items
21:19:18  <AquSe> I was wondering why auto renew wasn't there, there were the filters.
21:19:31  <AquSe> There I turned it on.
21:19:32  <frosch123> or send one of the vehicles manually to a depot for stopping and press the upgrade butto in the depot

21:23:03  <krinn> so guys: altering value in the foreach made the foreach reloop?
21:25:08  <glx> never a good idea to do that ;)
21:25:51  <krinn> looks like... i have count()=4 and it loop 8 times

21:55:37  <Eddi|zuHause> oh i remember it now... a large number of soldiers entering/exiting your castle totally cripples your transport network
21:57:08  <frosch123> yeah, you need to separate soldiers and cargo :)
21:57:17  <frosch123> independent transport networks :)
21:58:17  <Eddi|zuHause> well i built two warehouses but they aren't getting done because the cargo is not transported :p
21:58:34  <frosch123> i always wanted some game whcih combines s1 (but without mine lifetime), colonization (education) and ttd (transport)
22:00:21  <Eddi|zuHause> well widelands has experienced workers and stuff :p
22:01:12  <Eddi|zuHause> and they even implemented evicting experienced workers to exchange with inexperienced ones
22:01:18  <frosch123> but it also has mine lifetime
22:01:29  <frosch123> which i should try to patch out the next time i play it :p
22:02:07  <frosch123> anyway, i won't colonization style transportation
22:02:18  <frosch123> just with yapf and proper orders
22:02:41  <frosch123> settlers 2 style transportation is boring
22:02:54  <Xaroth|Work> lol, valve is having issues with their network
22:03:04  <Xaroth|Work> 146k viewers through the dota2 client
22:03:08  <frosch123> s1 transportation was somewhat interesting, but not something for the long run
22:03:43  <frosch123> s2 transportation is just boring, esp. with the s2 production levels
22:04:07  <frosch123> s1 mines and farms were at least able to completely flood your network
22:06:08  <krinn> what a mind, gone make coffee, serve coffee, and back upstairs, forget my coffee cup down :(

22:57:32  <megakacktus> I'm trying to implement a text filter for the load window
22:57:51  <frosch123> nice idea :)
22:58:04  <megakacktus> It was suggested on the wiki
22:58:21  <megakacktus> Sadly I'm unsure where to start
22:58:37  <frosch123> there are multiple windows which supply text filters
22:58:57  <frosch123> start with adding the editbox
22:59:27  <frosch123> then connect its content with a stringfilter class
22:59:36  <frosch123> then use the stringfilter to filter the list
22:59:38  <Xaroth|Work> glx: 127k in-game viewers atm, and 140k watching on other streams
22:59:43  <Xaroth|Work> it's madness
23:00:06  <frosch123> i guess the load game list is somewhat different from other lists, so the last step might be hardest
23:00:55  <megakacktus> frosch123: Can't you only have one textbox per window?
23:01:07  <frosch123> maybe you can change the saveload gui to use a guilist
23:01:20  <frosch123> no, the one textbox per window restriction was removed last year
23:01:30  <megakacktus> I'll update the wiki then :)
23:02:22  <frosch123> wiki page might be protected
23:04:00  <megakacktus> Wait a minute, there isn't even an editbox in the load window, never mind :p
