09:42:00  <elmex> yay, debian 64 has openttd
09:42:12  <elmex> how could i eve miss this game
09:44:12  <blathijs> :-)
10:01:08  <dihedral> in smooth econ.
10:01:26  <dihedral> is there a reason why 35/40 T productions dont increase anymore?
10:03:45  <Eddi|zuHause2> if you transport more than 70%, the chances of increasing are 1/3 and decreasing is 2/3, i believe
10:04:20  <dihedral> this is during the cause of the entire game
10:04:40  <dihedral> there should then be a chance of them reaching 117T or so
10:04:57  <Noldo> btw what is the point in thet 70% limit?
10:05:18  <Eddi|zuHause2> i believe the reasoning was that you "deplete" the industry
10:06:46  <dihedral> so if you transport 90% will the chances of an increase rise?
10:06:53  <Noldo> that mechanic would be ok for something like fishing or huntin where you shouldn't overfish or overhunt
10:07:20  <Noldo> but there is only so much ore in the area of a mine
10:07:45  <Noldo> it doesn't mate and reproduce
10:08:10  <dihedral> that is why you dont see 5 ore mines next to eachother
10:09:03  <Eddi|zuHause2> don't shout at me... i did not design this
10:09:25  <dihedral> and who was shouting?

10:15:05  <Eddi|zuHause2> are you sure the station accepts goods?
10:15:10  <Eddi|zuHause2> er, wood

11:01:21  <Ammller> Hello, I need some help for compiling ottd
11:01:59  <Ammller> I'm using more than one revision of ottdc and also some patched
11:02:20  <Ammller> Is it possible to compile directly in a spcial folder?
11:03:00  <Ammller> !s/ottdc/ottd/
11:05:16  <Rubidium> isn't it much easier to have multiple checkouts if you want to compile more than one revision and patched versions?
11:05:48  <Ammller> every checkout needs 80 MB
11:06:12  *** Smoky555 [~Miranda@] has quit [Quit: Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.]
11:06:29  <Maedhros> how?
11:06:34  <Ammller> the bin alone about 30 MB
11:07:30  <Maedhros> actually, my openttd dir seems to be 219mb somehow
11:07:51  <Rubidium> Maedhros: lots of stale svn data
11:08:12  <Rubidium> Ammller: what versions are you trying to compile?
11:08:17  <Ammller> possible to give a attribute with configure that BIN_DIR will change
11:08:28  <elmex> wow, ok, long distances really pay ogg
11:08:29  <elmex> off
11:08:51  <Ammller> Rubidium: mostly actual nightlies
11:08:59  <Ammller> with patches
11:09:38  <Rubidium> Ammller: just copy the whole binary directory after compilation, otherwise evt. grf updates won't propagate properly
11:10:01  <Ammller> yeah, I did it o
11:10:49  <Ammller> than its easyier to keep their own co's for every version
11:11:41  <Ammller> because I like to keep openttd.cfg and the grfs
11:13:02  <Ammller> but to be clear, if I would change BIN_DIR in the makefile manually, that could get problems?
11:13:25  <Rubidium> yes, because then you won't have the latest OTTD grfs
11:16:10  <Ammller> ah, didn't realize that, bin isn't empty on checkout
11:16:23  <Ammller> thx Rubidium

13:33:34  <nairan> they work at several differnet stuff
13:33:58  <elmex> hm, yep
13:34:50  <yeti_> is openttd written from scratch or did TTD's developer give out his sources because it was so old, and the openttd devs improved it?
13:35:27  <elmex> rewriting it from scratch must have been an awful amount of work
13:37:20  <Rubidium> it's written without TTD's original source code
13:37:34  <elmex> thats awesome :)
13:39:00  <Rubidium> and TTD's been written in assembly IIRC

14:02:58  <yeti__> cargo delivery is paid by distance - does openttd use the point-to-point direct distance or the number of tiles the train went through to calculate that?
14:03:35  <Maedhros> point-to-point

14:10:43  <Wolf01> if i want to create
14:10:43  <Wolf01> repos/proj/trunk and repos/proj/branch, i have to create 2 repositories?
14:11:36  <Wolf01> (i'm talking server sided)
14:12:35  <Maedhros> no, just make repos/proj, and trunk and branch can be directories within the repository

14:30:25  <Szandor> A suggestion about the website: should have the changelog css set to open, and use JavaScript to close it on page load
14:30:41  <Szandor> that way, people with JS turned off can still see the changelog
14:35:26  <TrueBrain> and what if people have CSS disabled?
14:36:16  *** Cipri [] has joined #openttd
14:36:49  <Szandor> then it would behave the same way it does now, i.e. show all the time
14:39:45  *** lolman_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
14:45:31  <Szandor> Also, if the starting html read "The list of changes for today's nightly is the following:", i.e. without the [hide changelog] span, non-JS people would never know what they were missing.

16:52:16  <dihedral> is it coincidence that the intercontinental airfield is 9/11 tiles?
16:52:22  <TrueBrain> yes
16:52:28  <dihedral> :-P
16:52:31  <TrueBrain> there is always something to find
16:54:31  <dihedral> hey TrueBrain, is there a reason that production industries done increase after reaching a low (32/40T)
16:54:42  <dihedral> *don't
16:57:06  <dihedral> if you right click to scroll around the map
16:57:14  <dihedral> and while doing so press alt-tab
16:57:20  <dihedral> to switch to another app
16:57:28  <dihedral> and hit alt-tab again to come back to the game
16:57:38  <TrueBrain> industries only have an upper and lwoer limit, there is no reason for any industry to not increase after any value
16:57:38  <dihedral> it seems like ottd remembered the right click
16:58:03  <dihedral> and moving the mouse (with no buttons clicked) will scroll the map
16:58:05  <Maedhros> it probably does
16:58:07  <TrueBrain> althought some industries never increase
16:58:26  <dihedral> TrueBrain: seems like e.g. a forrest down at 32 or 35T will not increase ever again
16:58:37  <TrueBrain> all about chance
16:58:54  <dihedral> i have seen that with all industries down at that level
16:59:02  <dihedral> never seen them come out of that hole again
16:59:21  <dihedral> not even when transporting all there is
16:59:32  <TrueBrain> industries don't care if you transport or not
16:59:41  <TrueBrain> (okay, they do, but not much :p)

17:32:54  <_Ben_> Ok, now I'm pretty confused.  I knew the water tiles appeared differently but used the same sprites, but I thourght that each frame in the animation (1 of 4?) had a seperate sprite still
17:33:40  <Eddi|zuHause2> no, it is palette animation
17:34:00  <Eddi|zuHause2> the same pallete index gets different real colours

19:28:32  <UndernotBuilder> so when a lamer creates an account for... well, laming, when he starts to.... lame his account is banned and because the email is already in use by the banned account he needs to create other email, thing which be prevented if we ban the ip / MAC addresses (for dynamics ip's)
19:29:24  <Cipri> Can't ban macs
19:30:15  <UndernotBuilder> why? that is possible on other mp games
19:31:25  <valhalla1w> it's forgeable
19:31:27  <Maedhros> they're easy to spoof, so there's no point
19:31:36  *** valhalla1w is now known as valhallasw
19:31:41  <valhallasw> a mac ban is always client side
19:32:03  <UndernotBuilder> then why in other multiplayer games is possible?
19:32:03  <Cipri> Servers can't see the mac address, they only get the IP
19:32:12  <Cipri> CLosed source games?
19:32:25  <valhallasw> UndernotBuilder: it doesn't work :p
19:32:30  <Cipri> Sure, you could make it so that openttd transmits its mac address.
19:32:36  <valhallasw> just spoof the mac address transmission
19:32:44  <Sacro> a) spoof mac address using ifconfig
19:32:46  <Cipri> What's to prevent someone from creating a patch that sends a random mac
19:32:48  <Sacro> b) edit source
19:33:09  <valhallasw> c) spoof mac address by changing tcp packets
19:33:27  <UndernotBuilder> I thought that the mac address is inchangeable
19:33:28  <valhallasw> (eg. changing the 'mac address'-data sent by openttd by sniffing-and-changing)
19:33:41  <valhallasw> it isn't, and it is not checkable by the server
19:33:47  <Sacro> UndernotBuilder: its kinda pointless in an open source game
19:33:57  <UndernotBuilder> and if one edits the source he will desync/versionmismatched
19:33:59  <Sacro> so you ban my mac address - AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF
19:34:04  <valhallasw> UndernotBuilder: erm, not.
19:34:09  <valhallasw> 21:33 < Sacro> UndernotBuilder: its kinda pointless  <-- fix.
19:34:12  <Sacro> so i tell openttd to say mine is FF:DD:EE:CC:BB:AA

19:35:18  <valhallasw> and even *if* you get a version mismatch... change your MAC with ifconfig
19:35:33  <valhallasw> or hack your packet filter
19:35:34  <Maedhros> desyncs only happen if the game state doesn't match
19:35:44  <Maedhros> the mac address has nothing to do with the game state
19:35:45  <valhallasw> or (insert 23 other ways of fooling the server)
19:35:47  <Eddi|zuHause2> <UndernotBuilder> and if one edits the source he will desync/versionmismatched <- you can as well change the version string
19:36:02  <Eddi|zuHause2> and desync only happens if you change game code
19:36:24  <Eddi|zuHause2> not some hypothetical mac transmission
19:36:27  <UndernotBuilder> well, hacking the game is changing code
19:36:39  <valhallasw> *sigh*
19:36:46  <valhallasw> changing code == changing the way the game *works*
19:36:56  <valhallasw> eg. trains that have different physics
19:37:08  <valhallasw> or mines that have different production settings
19:37:27  <valhallasw> not a *string* that is sent *once* to the server, without any *game* state information

20:06:51  <valhallasw> except a kick generally includes a ban
20:06:53  <UndernotBuilder> 2. in coop servers if someone wants to join there is always other that can accept/reject it
20:07:05  <valhallasw> which means lamers can take over a server

20:18:18  <valhallasw> maybe  isn't that bad :p
20:18:30  <valhallasw> UndernotBuilder: because you will get disconnected when your IP changes :P

20:19:50  <glx> password for game and companies
20:20:03  <UndernotBuilder> and 4. can be fixed with account system
20:20:26  <UndernotBuilder> even so the lamers can act

20:51:25  <TrueBrain> I hope your study goes better :p
20:51:32  <valhallasw> yeah.
20:51:55  <TrueBrain> good :)
20:51:55  <valhallasw> and my confidence in informatica has dropped even more
20:52:04  <TrueBrain> why?
20:52:09  <valhallasw> I got an A- for a memory leaking piece of garbage
20:52:22  <TrueBrain> they can't handle people who knows what they do :p
20:52:28  <valhallasw> *grin*
20:52:45  <valhallasw> now the point is.. for my last assignment, I've created a C proof of concept
20:52:50  <TrueBrain> although I was the only one in my year who got an A for PM :p
20:53:08  <valhallasw> which uses 2n^2+4n+2 memory instead of 2n^2
20:53:18  <RobertGrammig> ok sorry I meant forest of course
20:53:34  <RobertGrammig> I got a nice coverage 70-80% but it keep dropping
20:53:38  <valhallasw> now, theoretically I could reduce it to 2n^2, but that would cost processing powah
20:53:43  <TrueBrain> RobertGrammig: smooth economy off: move 60% away. If on, move as many as you can. Helps increasing a lot.
20:53:58  <TrueBrain> RobertGrammig: but there is always a chance of dropping, it stays a forest :)
20:54:09  <TrueBrain> valhallasw: it is always a balance :)
20:54:14  <valhallasw> aye
20:54:20  <TrueBrain> valhallasw: most part of our job here is balance memory against CPU :)
20:54:50  <valhallasw> :)
20:55:36  <TrueBrain> what I hate most about informatica, is that they give you less points of you did not a very tiny part
20:55:40  <TrueBrain> while you did add tons of other things
20:55:46  <TrueBrain> bad balance in score ;)
20:55:49  *** Purno [] has quit [Quit: Life is a game of pick-up-sticks, played by fucking lunatics.]
20:56:23  <RobertGrammig> and just as a general question if i have cities a,b,c on one line with similar distances, but a and c are really big cities and b ist small, is it more rewarding to have no stop at B?
20:56:51  <TrueBrain> RobertGrammig: find out yourself! :)
20:57:06  <valhallasw> TrueBrain: my memory leak meant you could only run the algorithm once
20:57:13  <RobertGrammig> come on tell me ^^
20:57:21  <TrueBrain> valhallasw: they only test what you give them :p
20:57:25  <valhallasw> yeah ^_^
20:57:44  *** setrodox [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:58:00  <RobertGrammig> or just in general, does passenger payoff depend on target city distance and size or is it fixed?
20:58:20  <glx> distance/time only
20:58:32  <TrueBrain> RobertGrammig: it is in the wiki. Cargo depends on distance over time; see cargo payment graphic.
20:59:28  <Rubidium> TrueBrain: informatica is about doing the stuff that is asked; lets rephrase your sentence: "you hate it when a (ottd-)patch is not accepted because it trashes Windows support, while it add a lot of other things"
20:59:41  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: nah, they are much more childish
21:00:09  <glx> you need to do it how they think you'll do it
21:00:20  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: I missed one tiny bit of thing, therefor not awarded some big bonus point, not even partly; the point was that they in no way stimulate to do anything extra besides the assignment
21:02:33  <Rubidium> that's not my biggest problem; that's that everybody whom's application seems to work gets (during a 1 minute demonstration) 8 (out of 10) regardless of the quality of the code
21:03:16  <TrueBrain> that is also a big stupidity yes
21:03:27  <TrueBrain> make fake output, and you come a long way :p
21:03:39  <TrueBrain> (if you can hide it clever code-wise, you will even get it done totally :p)
21:05:01  <Rubidium> >>> Map readed, converting..
21:05:24  <Rubidium> it's without the ed :)
21:05:40  <TrueBrain> haha, you are so right :) But, wrong chan ;)
21:06:00  <Rubidium> hmm, true
21:06:13  <valhallasw> Rubidium: that was exactly my point
21:06:43  <valhallasw> with a memory leak as big as mine, I was surprised I scored higher than a simple pass grade
21:07:26  <valhallasw> TrueBrain: <-- maybe I should convert it so it truely is C :)
21:07:51  <valhallasw> that's the entire algorithm, and, apart from reading the problem, it does everything asked
21:08:08  <valhallasw> oh, wait, it's not OOP
21:08:45  <valhallasw> but OOP is BS if you don't care about memory leaks
21:08:49  <valhallasw> (IMO)
21:09:35  <Rubidium> what should that piece of code do?
21:10:15  <valhallasw> (note: dutch)
21:10:37  <valhallasw> n persons, each with a study studies[i]
21:10:44  <TrueBrain> connection to that website is cut somewhere along the line...
21:10:56  <valhallasw> liacs or arctus?
21:11:03  <TrueBrain> arctus
21:11:14  <valhallasw> then my lovely speedtouch home is b0rked again
21:11:37  <valhallasw> try again?
21:11:40  <valhallasw> oh
21:11:41  <valhallasw> wait
21:11:44  <valhallasw> strip the https
21:12:11  <valhallasw> it runs on port 22 externally (yes, ssh runs on 443... proxy reasons)
21:12:38  <valhallasw> <-- should work
21:12:44  <TrueBrain> :p
21:12:54  <TrueBrain> why does it leak?
21:13:08  <valhallasw> it doesnt
21:13:18  <valhallasw> my last assignment did
21:13:26  <valhallasw>
21:13:29  <valhallasw> without the s
21:13:30  <TrueBrain> ah, sorry, then I mistunderstood you :p
21:13:30  <valhallasw> again >_<
21:14:05  <valhallasw> now I wonder, is there an png/svg/etc viewer that can be piped to?
21:14:20  <TrueBrain> piped to what / as what?
21:14:31  <valhallasw> ./a.out | circo -Tpng | imageviewer
21:15:02  <TrueBrain> good question :)
21:19:30  <Rubidium> I really wonder what is OO about the assignment
21:20:04  <Rubidium> especially because the assignment states that one class is enough
21:20:13  <valhallasw> -.-
21:20:34  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: the quality of our informatica courses :)
21:21:51  <Rubidium> yeah, there are some rumours some teacher isn't allow to give "programmeren 1 & 2" anymore because he gives too many people a fail-grade
21:22:42  <Rubidium> the real problem is the fact that the grading, course and lectures haven't changed the last few years, only the students that somehow can't cope with the course
21:22:44  <TrueBrain> lol :)
21:23:26  <valhallasw> well, if I see the current informatica students in leiden...
21:23:46  <valhallasw> they generally do worse than math or physics students
21:31:04  <valhallasw> TrueBrain: ./a.out | circo -Tpng | xv -
21:31:04  <valhallasw> :)
21:31:15  <TrueBrain> xv sucks
21:31:20  <valhallasw> yes
21:31:25  <valhallasw> but the gimp doesnt understand -
21:31:34  <TrueBrain> use /dev/stdin
21:31:37  <TrueBrain> does the trcik most of the time
21:31:41  <valhallasw> 'not a regular file'
21:31:44  <valhallasw> been there, done that
21:31:45  <TrueBrain> haha
21:31:46  <TrueBrain> stupid :p
21:31:51  <valhallasw> aye
21:31:58  <TrueBrain> so dump it to a temp :p
21:32:13  <valhallasw> temp files suck
21:32:20  <valhallasw> pipes are a programmers wet dream
21:32:23  <valhallasw> well, not really
21:32:38  <TrueBrain> make a small script :p
21:32:42  <Rubidium> valhallasw: 'fix' gimp
21:32:50  <TrueBrain>
21:33:05  <valhallasw> :D
21:35:27  <Rubidium> ugh... why do they try to translate (almost) every english computer term to Dutch, makes it really difficult to read
21:37:29  <Wolf01> night boys
21:37:33  *** Wolf01 [] has quit [Quit: Once again the world is quick to bury me.]
21:40:40  <valhallasw> Rubidium: because they suck

21:40:53  <TrueBrain> haha :)
21:40:54  <valhallasw> *grin*
21:41:04  <valhallasw> I love greedyness
21:41:25  <Rubidium> oh, Knapzakprobleem is from the HC4 sheets
21:41:35  <valhallasw> yes
21:41:50  <valhallasw> but the worst is the term 'dynamisch programmeren'
21:42:05  <valhallasw> call it caching, saving subresults, but not 'dynamic programming'
21:42:25  <valhallasw> there is *absolutely* nothing dynamic about it
21:42:47  <valhallasw> it would be dynamic *programming* when the algorithm edits itself to solve the problem faster
21:43:04  <TrueBrain> no, that is genetic programming :p
21:43:16  <Rubidium> TrueBrain: ofcourse not
21:43:34  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: you do know what a ':p' means, right?
21:43:38  <Rubidium> genetic programming is an application spawning lots of different applications that should do the same and taking the best of them
21:44:38  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: bad description btw, or rather: poor ;)
21:44:53  <TrueBrain> as you miss one very important key element: by genetic evolution
21:45:07  <valhallasw> evolution \o/
21:45:22  <TrueBrain> (as in the 3 key element: mutation, crossover and duplication)
21:45:24  * Rubidium prepends the previous statement with while (true) ;)
21:47:10  <valhallasw> TrueBrain: ./a.out | circo -Tpng | epiphany file:///dev/stdin seems to work *yay*
21:47:16  <TrueBrain> hehe
21:47:47  * Rubidium thinks valhallasw' algo course misses one important part: NP vs NPC
21:47:53  <TrueBrain> > [stats]: Germany, heightmap
21:47:54  <TrueBrain> > [stats]: stats:
21:47:54  <TrueBrain> > [stats]:   highest value: 2610 meters
21:47:54  <TrueBrain> > [stats]:   lowest value : -169 meters
21:47:54  <TrueBrain> > [stats]:   avg height   : 103 meters
21:47:55  <TrueBrain> > [stats]:   sea:         : 58%
21:48:05  <Rubidium> and P vs NP
21:48:22  <TrueBrain> my sea calculation is ... wrong :p
21:49:58  <valhallasw> Rubidium: the course lacks every part of algorithm complexity
21:50:06  <valhallasw> there is some very basic order stuff in there
21:50:22  <valhallasw> but nothing more than 'this algorithm is order N. period.'
21:50:45  <Rubidium> there is some 'how to calculate the order' in the course
21:50:51  <valhallasw> so I fail to see the WO in this course... it should be well-suited for HBO-informatica
21:51:06  <Rubidium> true
21:51:10  <TrueBrain> he, Rome isn't built in one day either
21:51:37  <TrueBrain> you needed courses of a level < 500 (HBO level)
21:51:54  <Rubidium> it misses the 'proof this function is O(n^2)' or 'proof this problem cannot be solved in O(n)'
21:51:55  <TrueBrain> else you get crazy :p
21:51:57  <valhallasw> that is the biggest BS I've ever heard
21:52:08  <valhallasw> @ tb
21:52:16  <TrueBrain> valhallasw: really, Rome isn't built in one day. Look it up!
21:52:28  <valhallasw> WO level-100 courses should NOT be the same level as HBO level-100 courses
21:52:41  <TrueBrain> valhallasw: no, and if you read what I write, I never said that
21:52:52  <valhallasw> you are comparing HBO levels to WO levels
21:52:52  <TrueBrain> all < 500 level courses can be done by a HBO student at some stage
21:53:00  <valhallasw> no
21:53:02  <TrueBrain> I do not compate HBO levels
21:53:09  *** setrodox__ [] has joined #openttd
21:53:11  <TrueBrain> I only talk about Leiden University course levels
21:53:33  <valhallasw> you are grading an HBO student by WO levels
21:53:49  <TrueBrain> You should look up how the levels of courses are created :)
21:54:07  <valhallasw> well, that would probably explain why informatica in leiden sucks that much
21:54:12  <Rubidium> where can I find that information?
21:54:26  <TrueBrain> valhallasw: lol, now that is bullshit :)
21:54:39  <valhallasw> as your '500 = HBO' is not true for either physics or math
21:54:50  <TrueBrain> it is very much through for most courses we follow
21:55:47  <TrueBrain> hmm, only the 500 is wrong
21:55:48  <TrueBrain> oh well
21:56:00  * Rubidium wonders why liacs uses C++ as 'standard' programming language
21:56:07  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: we all do
21:56:19  <valhallasw> Rubidium: good question, as there is no memory management in the programming courses
21:56:32  <Rubidium> Java is imo a better choice
21:56:32  <TrueBrain> even worse: they rarely use OO :p
21:56:50  <valhallasw> TrueBrain: my bachelor research is level 400
21:56:57  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: it most likely is yes
21:57:09  <TrueBrain> valhallasw: as I said, the 500 is wrong :p
21:57:21  <TrueBrain> but the levels aren't like I remember anyway... and may courses lack a level nowedays...
21:57:33  * TrueBrain tries to find his agenda of some years ago :p
21:58:00  <valhallasw> Rubidium: there is absolutely no reason *not* to use java
21:58:12  <valhallasw> except Kosters cannot teach it, probably
21:58:21  <TrueBrain> there is even no reason to not use Pascal :p
21:58:54  <valhallasw> pascal might get limited later on with informatica
21:59:08  <valhallasw> but for math and physics it would definitly be good enough
21:59:10  <TrueBrain> Fortran!!
21:59:19  <valhallasw> brainfuck!

22:04:00  <TrueBrain> that female character on the other hand...
22:04:00  <Rubidium> C++ is really not the language to start programming in; too much pitfals and lousy (in comparison to java) compiler errors

22:12:32  <Eddi|zuHause2> i figured that much, but everything beyond that needs too much inside knowledge
22:13:13  <Eddi|zuHause2> i learned haskell and sather-k in my first year
22:13:16  <Rubidium> basically it's about the lousiness of (some) Dutch universities in the field of grading and scientific level of the courses

22:51:29  <TrueBrain> I should enable the ban-module I guess :p
22:52:34  <elmex> ?
22:52:49  <TrueBrain> argh, don't you guys too hate it when you miss parts of your log-files?
22:52:55  <TrueBrain> after a reboot or something, that it gets chopped
22:53:14  <elmex> :)
22:53:34  <TrueBrain> who remembers when we migrated to oftc?
22:53:57  <Rubidium> my logs?
22:54:20  <Eddi|zuHause2> my freenode logs stop 21. Dez
22:54:22  <Rubidium> 12th of August
22:54:26  <TrueBrain> tnx Rubidium
22:54:42  <Eddi|zuHause2> (last change)
22:55:11  <Eddi|zuHause2> i have no idea why
22:56:14  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: 2005?
22:56:19  <TrueBrain> pfff, time goes fast
22:56:29  <Rubidium> nah, must be 2006
22:56:34  <Eddi|zuHause2> [Sa Aug 12 2006] [18:20:02] <TrueLight> Dear people, we have moved to" target="_blank"> We hope you all move with us.

22:56:40  <TrueBrain> 2006? Pfew :)
22:58:20  <TrueBrain> k, tnx :)
23:00:10  <Ailure> hmm
23:00:16  <Ailure> a channnel I know is considering moving
23:00:18  <Ailure> from espernet
23:00:18  <Ailure> :p
23:00:30  <Ailure> non-existant service from IRCops is the main reason heh

23:16:15  *** RobertGrammig [] has joined #openttd
23:19:14  <RobertGrammig> I just downloaded openttd this week and wonder what this newGRF stuff is? graphics?
23:19:29  <Eddi|zuHause2> more than just graphics
23:19:56  <Eddi|zuHause2> it can change complete vehiclesets, and modify lots of other game behaviour
23:20:56  <Sacro> indeed...
23:20:58  <Sacro> grfs are ace
23:21:36  <Maedhros> night boys and girls
23:21:57  *** Maedhros [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
23:22:36  <RobertGrammig> well where can I download them ;)?
23:22:53  <Eddi|zuHause2> would be a good start
23:23:14  <Eddi|zuHause2> or on the ttdpatch site
23:23:40  <RobertGrammig> thx
23:24:07  <Eddi|zuHause2>,%2014.%20Aug%201923.png <- only a few possibilities you can have with newgrf
23:24:45  <Eddi|zuHause2> in this case, the DBSetXL as vehicleset, NewStations and IndustrialStations as stationset, and "stolentrees"
23:24:53  <RobertGrammig> looks great
23:25:34  <RobertGrammig> can grfs also fix the low difficulty level caused by the stupid AI?
23:25:42  *** ThePizzaKing [] has joined #openttd
23:25:49  <Eddi|zuHause2> no
23:25:58  <Eddi|zuHause2> but there is a new AI system in development
23:26:19  <Eddi|zuHause2> i have learned to just switch off the AI
23:26:42  <Eddi|zuHause2> there is enough challenge in managing your own network
23:27:40  <RobertGrammig> yeah prolly best thing to do...
23:28:03  <Eddi|zuHause2> i have probably not played against AI in 10 years...
23:30:15  <Eddi|zuHause2>,%2020.%20Okt%201925.png <- a little more busy situation :)
23:30:21  *** maddy [] has joined #openttd
23:30:24  <RobertGrammig> well I would definitely prefer having a good AI... building your own network is nice but I want some kind of benchmark to which I can compare the cleverness of my network
23:30:27  <maddy> hiho
23:31:39  <Eddi|zuHause2> good "AI" = multiplayer :)
23:33:51  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:34:07  <RobertGrammig> yeah thats right ;=)
23:38:03  <TrueBrain> I like the new AI framework that is being build :) I wonder how long it takes for someone to make an AI that beats you guys! :)
