17:08:42  <frosch123> planetmaker: what did you do with the pota-ghat repository?
17:08:55  <frosch123> or is it just empty?
17:10:17  <frosch123> or did you just create it?
17:13:40  <planetmaker> it's empty as I just created it
17:13:56  <frosch123> ok, eints cannot deal with empty repos :p
17:14:04  <planetmaker> :D
17:14:07  <frosch123> i tries to pull/update "default", which does not exist :)
17:14:33  <planetmaker> should I push or do you want to teach eints to jump through a ring?
17:15:02  <frosch123> nah, just push today somewhen
17:15:09  <frosch123> it will create new tickets tomorrow
17:15:59  <planetmaker> not when I push, no?
17:16:18  <frosch123> i mean if you keep it empty
17:16:46  <planetmaker> ok, I'll try to get something which looks like pota-ghat and not like opengfx+landscape
17:16:48  <frosch123> unless you push it will maintain one open ticket per day :p

18:42:26  <skyem123> It it possible to merge sprites together in a newGRF?
18:43:51  <planetmaker> skyem123, not exactly
18:44:03  <skyem123> Aww...
18:44:03  <planetmaker> But all tile-based things allow to compose the tile from several sprites
18:44:11  <skyem123> hmm...
18:44:19  <planetmaker> aka sprite layout
18:44:22  <planetmaker> vehicles don't allow that
18:44:39  <planetmaker> except when it are compound vehicles, like helicopters or articulated ones
18:44:50  <skyem123> I suppose rails don't allow it either.
18:45:15  <planetmaker> well.
18:45:59  <planetmaker> To some degree, but probably not what you mean
18:46:09  <skyem123> I have 4 "layers"
18:47:09  <planetmaker> if you use gimp or photoshop, you could have your build script export the layers and generate the sprite sheets from the layered file
18:47:24  <skyem123> I use
18:48:01  <planetmaker> its file format is as incompatible to everything else as it can get
18:48:22  <skyem123> I can export to .png
18:48:26  <planetmaker> and certainly does not allow export on the DevZone in scripts as it requires the .NET framework in its file format
18:48:51  <Alberth> yay for propietary file formats :p
18:49:00  <Alberth> *proprietary
18:49:04  <skyem123> I find easy to use.
18:49:20  <planetmaker> several people use it, you're certainly not alone there :)
18:49:31  <planetmaker> (Zephyris does use it, too)
18:50:35  <planetmaker> also, doesn't exactly matter, all I wanted to say that I know no means to script it. And I do know that at least gimp can't read it
18:51:00  <planetmaker> so you will have to export that on your end from the files
18:51:17  <skyem123> Photoshop is kind of clunky for me and GIMP also feels clunky (not using the native gui makes things feel clunky for me)
18:51:32  <planetmaker> :)
18:55:39  <skyem123> seems to have a file format converter for
18:55:41  <Webster> Title: ComSquare AG - Paint.NETŪ Tools (at
19:01:46  <frosch123> those tools are all windows only
19:02:05  <frosch123> so you would have to run them through wine or so, which feels quite clunky :p
19:03:12  <frosch123> you are liekly better of with something like pdnpy
19:05:12  <planetmaker> hm, pdnpy...
19:05:21  <frosch123> oh, wait, that seems to something entirely different :p
19:06:35  *** andythenorth has quit IRC
19:06:48  <skyem123> I could use a plugin to and save in a different format.
19:07:19  <planetmaker> skyem123, as long as you work on the set, any work flow which suits you is fine
19:07:59  <planetmaker> but as I told Zephyris the other day: people like me won't be able to open pdn files without resorting to virtual machines or so :)
19:08:55  <skyem123> The main problem is that my newGRF will be big if i make every possible combination.
19:09:03  <planetmaker> of course :)
19:09:14  <planetmaker> but what is 'big'?
19:09:32  <planetmaker> opengfx+landscape is a few MB with all landscape things with and without grid
19:09:47  <planetmaker> the same in 32bpp is a few 10 megabytes, but only for one landscape
19:11:21  <planetmaker> swedishrails is <200kByte for 1 railtype with and without snow. Adding a few more doesn't exactly bloat it
19:11:21  <skyem123> I'm going to use 32bpp and manually conver to 8bpp becuase i like to have a wide range of colours.
19:11:33  <planetmaker> then it will be big :)
19:11:41  <planetmaker> 32bpp seems to be the new trend
19:12:12  <skyem123> Does have a way to allow you to select a png palette?
19:12:30  <planetmaker> don't look at me. I never installed or opened that programme
19:13:03  <planetmaker> if you find out, please write a short tutorial :)
19:13:27  <skyem123> I was asking anyone. :-p
19:13:55  <planetmaker> ask (also) in #openttd or at tt-f, I suggest
19:15:02  <skyem123> ok.
19:15:54  <skyem123> I think i will just make the graphics combonations i want and let everybody else do what they want with the source files.
19:20:21  <planetmaker> :) wise decision
19:21:11  <planetmaker> hm... my push was rejected.... ogfx+landscape must at some stage have contained makefile.local...
19:22:13  <skyem123> I will have the layers as seperate files and have a .pdn file and a .psd file of the same thing. Everybody should be happy!

20:23:51  <frosch123> aww, so the third time was not the charm
20:24:01  <frosch123> first project description with a ":" :p
20:27:09  <planetmaker> oh. I can change it to a hyphen

20:28:26  <frosch123> more pota to come
20:28:31  <frosch123> pota vehicles and such :p
20:28:58  <planetmaker> :) Currently I have no such plan. But I had to combine both name suggestions :P
20:29:23  <planetmaker> Maybe tracks
20:29:51  <planetmaker> I have to make them anyway to some degree
20:31:32  <planetmaker> Currently I swear at gimp that I can't define a transparency definition separately and assign it to a layer...
20:31:53  <planetmaker> though... hm... just got an idea :)
20:32:03  <frosch123> <- any more clever idea than adding increasingly weird characters one by one? :p
20:33:51  <DevZone> Project Iron Horse build #594-push: SUCCESS in 1 min 53 sec:
20:33:52  <planetmaker> _
20:34:26  <frosch123> do you know what characters the project identifier allows?
20:35:23  <planetmaker> not by heart
20:36:07  <planetmaker> Length between 1 and 100 characters. Only lower case letters (a-z), numbers, dashes and underscores are allowed, must start with a lower case letter.
20:36:07  <planetmaker> Once saved, the identifier cannot be changed.
20:36:14  <planetmaker> ^ from project creation page
20:36:31  <planetmaker> that's the projectID. The project name is much more relaxed
20:36:52  <planetmaker> obviously the "must start with lower case letter" is not enforced, though
20:37:21  <planetmaker> 2cctrainset, 2ccts being proof
20:38:46  <frosch123> validates_format_of :identifier, :with => /\A(?!\d+$)[a-z0-9\-_]*\z/, :if => { |p| p.identifier_changed? }

20:46:12  <planetmaker> maybe just old hint then :)
20:47:32  <DevZone> Project Iron Horse build #596-push: SUCCESS in 1 min 35 sec:
20:51:56  <frosch123> how weird, identifiers can start with _ or -, but not with a digit
20:52:29  <planetmaker> well. they can... or do
20:52:41  <frosch123> no wait, it may not consist entirely of numbers

20:55:47  <skyem123> I followed the instuctions at Is that all i have to do to enable EINTS on my project
20:55:49  <skyem123> ?
20:56:05  <frosch123> yes, that's the point of the site :p
20:56:24  <frosch123> except it does not support git currently
20:56:29  <frosch123> only hg
20:56:32  <skyem123> ah.
20:56:49  <skyem123> awww
20:57:04  <frosch123> it can be added
20:57:24  <frosch123> but you are the first one to need it
20:58:00  <skyem123> I had quite a lot of firsts when making and uploading my newGRF.
20:59:12  <skyem123> Do you think i should convert my repo into a hg one?
20:59:39  <frosch123> <- Alberth: does that look correct?
21:00:52  <Alberth> you add a - at the beginning, is that intentional?
21:01:31  <frosch123> yes, redmine apparently allows that
21:01:43  <Alberth> ok, then it's fine
21:02:18  <frosch123> "\A(?!\d+$)[a-z0-9\-_]*\z" <- i did not bother about the "(?!\d+$)"
21:02:48  <frosch123> no idea why you would allow all characters everywhere, except not pure-digits
21:02:58  <frosch123> maybe silly languages convert it to an integer then :p
21:03:26  <frosch123> Alberth: i rather wonder whether we have to worry about fancy characters in the human name
21:03:35  <frosch123> which may break the project files or website
21:03:45  <frosch123> stuff like < and > or so :p
21:04:01  <Alberth> they get encoded in the bottle template afaik
21:04:12  <frosch123> and the files on disk?
21:04:36  <Alberth> xml lib reads/writes them
21:04:54  <frosch123> so we assume it escapes as well :)=
21:04:57  <Alberth> and human names don't end up in .lng files
21:05:14  <Alberth> should be, unless no project uses < and >  :p
