05:28:42  <Touqen> sigh
05:29:00  <Touqen> ubuntu and dist-upgrades don't seem to work too well
05:29:48  <geoffk> scarey stuff i killed a few installs upgrading ubuntu
05:30:00  <Touqen> it just killed my router
05:30:06  <geoffk> something i never do anymore is upgrade
05:30:06  <Touqen> It's fine so long as I don't reboot it.
05:30:10  <geoffk> ouch
05:30:21  <Touqen> So, I'm just gonna let it run till this weekend and reinstall.
05:30:45  <geoffk> fresh installs are always best on any OS
05:31:16  <geoffk> i dont trust scripts not to crap all over my configs
05:31:29  <Touqen> I would have just left it alone but it appears the ubuntu breezy aren't there anymore.
05:31:41  <Touqen> breezy repos*
05:32:01  <geoffk> haven't notices, i got a few dapper servers runing
05:34:22  <geoffk> personaly i use my own repositories for everything i use i pull in the dvd iso's and mount them on http
05:37:19  <Touqen> Sweet.
05:37:32  <Touqen> I just got an email dated 3/27/1993!
05:37:49  <geoffk> i do a lot of bootstrpping with ubuntu and debian its very handy
05:37:52  <geoffk> bit old

07:22:05  <peter1138> yes
07:22:15  <hylje> no
07:25:00  <stillunknown> geoffk: Some os'es are not necessarily worse after updates.
07:25:39  <geoffk> no but i dont take any chances ubuntu i find breaks a lot of things

07:28:13  <stillunknown> geoffk: My father upgraded a while ago, went reasonably well/
07:28:29  <stillunknown> Personally i'm not a ubuntu fan.
07:29:14  <geoffk> yeah i can go fine depends what you have on the system i guess, i neither like or hate it, i tihnk its slow on a desktop though and wouldn't use it for that

07:32:55  <stillunknown> geoffk: I find a rolling release system preferable.
07:33:14  <hylje> rolling thunder
07:33:32  <geoffk> rolling release? im not familiar with that
07:33:52  <hylje> ubuntu releases 6mo apart
07:34:17  <stillunknown> A rolling release system means stuff gets updated as it becomes available.
07:34:43  <stillunknown> Instead of a huge snapshot every 6 or 12 months.
07:34:44  <geoffk> yeah its good for that its the best thing about it
07:34:57  <geoffk> i use it on some servers i got the LTS 6.06
07:35:01  <hylje> gentoo style
07:35:11  <hylje> but snapshot is easier to support
07:35:17  *** Maedhros [] has joined #openttd
07:35:22  <hylje> and doesnt involve bleeding edge
07:35:52  <stillunknown> I find that certain things are left out during the snapshot update.
07:36:07  <stillunknown> Like ubuntu still uses a 1.2.something libcddb
07:36:23  <stillunknown> While 1.3 has been around for months before the release.
07:37:14  *** XeryusTC [] has joined #openttd
07:37:25  <hylje> stability!
07:37:26  <geoffk> only reason i ever got interested in ubuntu was when breezy was shipped with OOo2 but it was so slow on my systems it was unusable
07:37:56  <stillunknown> hylje: the 1.2.x version has an annoying bug ;-)
07:38:17  <hylje>
07:38:33  <geoffk> before that i hadn't fentured further than slackware bu tnow i employ debian for most my server thing since etch is uptodate with things i need to run
07:39:14  <geoffk> fentured/ventured

08:09:22  <Phazorx> stillunknown
08:09:34  <Phazorx> is it possibel to apply your caching idea on top of peter's patch ?
08:11:57  <peter1138> yes it is
08:12:15  <peter1138> whether it improves anything is another matter...
08:12:39  <Phazorx> peter1138: i got another test case game here
08:12:54  <Phazorx> 850 trains on 2048x128
08:12:59  <peter1138> more test cases? heh
08:13:08  <Phazorx> well this one is inetresting
08:13:23  <Phazorx> same game whioch was crashiung continued
08:13:40  <Phazorx> curerntly with stillunknown's oatch is it close to 100 (but not over it yet)
08:13:49  <Phazorx> with yours 75-80% CPU load
08:13:58  <Phazorx> w/o patches it's a slideshow
08:14:24  <Phazorx> i'd recommend using it for tuning
08:14:26  <peter1138> ok. what do you want me to do about it? :p
08:14:48  <Phazorx> re - play with hash values and profiling?
08:15:04  <peter1138> don't fancy doing it again ;(
08:15:17  <Phazorx> ahh... :(
08:15:30  <peter1138> have you updated recently?
08:15:35  *** Vikthor [] has joined #openttd
08:15:48  <Phazorx> not recently
08:15:49  <peter1138> or are you still using the patch i sent you?
08:15:54  <Phazorx> same patch
08:15:56  <Phazorx> 104m
08:16:06  <peter1138> :o
08:16:11  <Phazorx> i can compare results with sometihng if you want me to
08:16:18  <peter1138> compare with current trunk
08:18:44  <Phazorx> it's a bit better, ~65-70% now
08:19:13  <Phazorx> or not
08:19:17  <Phazorx> fluctuates
08:20:13  <Phazorx> i'd say it is still slighty betetr, may be not 5% drop but clsoe to it
08:20:57  <Phazorx> i'm surprized that i do not see same difference like in EvsL case cuz structure is close
08:23:18  <hylje> evsl?
08:23:50  <Phazorx> express vs local
08:23:56  <Phazorx> one of my weird test cases
08:24:16  <Phazorx>
08:24:32  <hylje> a
08:24:37  <hylje> ok
08:24:37  <Phazorx> this one shown 1100% improvement with peter's patch
08:25:04  <Phazorx> PS#44 is SML
08:25:11  <hylje> sml? D:
08:25:16  <Phazorx> shift ml
08:25:25  <Phazorx> i'll wiki it after i'm done
08:25:27  <hylje> o
08:25:33  <Phazorx> however owen already put something there
08:25:46  <Phazorx> basicaly idea is free lanes for merging trains on ML
08:25:57  <Phazorx> so ML trains shift lanes right wenvever they can
08:26:05  <Phazorx> keeping left lanes open
08:26:55  <Phazorx> by doing so you win on ease of design and expandability
08:27:02  <peter1138> Phazorx: in trunk, the hash size is larger and the bucket size smaller
08:27:03  <hylje> clever
08:27:09  <hylje> i has a bucket
08:27:10  <peter1138> which my profiling showed as better
08:27:23  <peter1138> increasing hash size always increased performance
08:27:33  <peter1138> so did decreasing bucket size
08:27:49  <Phazorx> peter1138: is it possible to have it tunable
08:27:51  <Phazorx> per map size
08:28:01  <peter1138> not really
08:28:11  <peter1138> the compiler wouldn't be able to optimise it as much
08:28:24  <Phazorx> i see
08:28:44  <Phazorx> well it works much better than before, so thanks a lot
08:49:08  <peter1138> what cpu have you got?

10:00:25  <DJGummikuh> SteamWilly: yes this is what I heard... actually the town already grew by 5 villagers... over 4 years of constant food and water delivery
10:01:05  <Maedhros> 5 people over four years sound more like luck than anything else ;)
10:01:15  <Maedhros> how close are your stations to the town?
10:04:04  <DJGummikuh> well... my station is about the size of the town and right next to it...
10:04:17  <DJGummikuh> Maedhros: if oyu have 0.5.2 you can join my server and have a look
10:04:22  <DJGummikuh> is the IP
10:05:15  <DJGummikuh> yay now it is even lower than it was before I started delivering
10:05:24  <DJGummikuh> is my food poisoned or what?
10:10:59  <DJGummikuh> AAAH it finally started growing... seems the problem indeed was not enough food
10:11:12  <DJGummikuh> updated from one food train to 4 :D already doubled the size
10:11:19  <Maedhros> ahh, cool :)

11:27:34  <Nickman> TrueBrain: isn't the 32bpp implemantation somewhat a hack???
11:28:18  <TrueBrain> hack?!
11:28:22  <TrueBrain> you want a kick again? :p
11:28:36  <TrueBrain> I worked my ass of the last few days to get a clean 32bpp implementation
11:28:43  <TrueBrain> and you call it a hack? :)
11:30:12  *** Biff [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:30:19  <Nickman> I don't know the real implementation, but since it overrides the 8bpp sprites?
11:30:38  <Nickman> I didn't say it sucked... I think it's some great work!
11:31:13  <Nickman> but find it wierd to see a bunch of png files instead of a grf-like file :)
11:31:17  <Nickman> that's all ;)
11:32:55  * eekee is finding grf wierd, or at least .nfo O.o
11:33:02  <Nickman> hehe :D
11:33:17  <Nickman> but, on the other hand, this implementation is much simpler :)
11:33:26  <eekee> hehe
11:33:27  <eekee> brb
11:33:33  <Nickman> maybe you could add support to zip files or so TrueBrain ??
11:33:39  <eekee> Oh & yay for simplicity! Always.
11:33:48  <Nickman> ;)
11:33:50  <Nickman> indeed
11:34:23  <TrueBrain> Nickman: tar support :p
11:34:34  <Nickman> also good :)
11:34:37  <Kjetil> lha support :P
11:34:40  <Rubidium> Nickman: now it works "simply", all the other things like a container for 32bpp graphics and other (speed) improvements are still under development
11:34:55  <Nickman> k ;)
11:35:32  <Nickman> but the tar support would be nice, since you would be able to place "packs" of png's in the folder insted of seperate PNG's wich looks nicer ;)
11:35:41  <Nickman> but some great stuff there!!
11:37:24  <Nickman> but what was the 32bpp branch doing if you just made it out of nothing? :D

11:39:04  *** mode/#openttd [+o orudge] by ChanServ
11:41:42  <Nickman> so, to use 32bpp images, you just have to place them in those specific locations and the game will load them automaticly?
11:43:32  <TrueBrain> yup
11:44:05  <Nickman> cool ;)
11:44:36  <Nickman> so this is clientside only and doesn't affect multiplayer games?
11:46:15  <peter1138> correct
11:46:48  <Nickman> good compatibility with 8bpp only then ;)
11:46:58  <peter1138> well
11:47:40  <peter1138> "in the overall aim of the 32bpp project. Such as seasons, more sprites for construction. 4 rotations for viewing. Multiple angles for vehicles, smoother rail/junctions, longer/larger vehicles"
11:47:45  <peter1138> idiot!
11:47:53  <peter1138> that is totally *not* the aim of 32bpp...
11:47:58  <Nickman> :D
11:49:15  <Eddi|zuHause2> somthing that i would place in direct relation to 32bpp would be better zoom and transparency
11:49:47  <Nickman> indeed
11:51:46  <peter1138> < transparency ;p
11:51:58  <peter1138> but yes
11:52:04  <peter1138> RGBA PNGs are fully supported
11:53:05  <Eddi|zuHause2> a little bit too transparent, maybe :)

11:58:38  <TrueBrain> peter1138: I agree: idiot! Who wrote that?
11:59:01  <TrueBrain> Nickman: the aim of 32bpp is that it only overrides 8bpp, and not be a replacement for
11:59:28  <TrueBrain> that way 8bpp and 32bpp clients can play together just perfectly
11:59:57  <peter1138> TrueBrain: ben_robbins_
12:00:01  <TrueBrain> and tar support is on his way, it just isn't as important as some other things :)

12:00:25  <TrueBrain> never read the replies
12:00:39  <peter1138> hehe
12:01:11  <Nickman> TrueBrain I understand ;). it is a great feature none the less ;)
12:01:28  <TrueBrain> Nickman: it sure is, and more of all, it is pretty clean (code-wise :))
12:01:35  <TrueBrain> a lot of additions and shit is possible
12:01:36  <TrueBrain> like opengl :p
12:01:41  <Nickman> aha ;)
12:01:47  <Nickman> sound good ;)
12:02:07  <Nickman> I'll try to take a look at the code when my exams are done
12:02:17  <TrueBrain> :)
12:02:49  <TrueBrain> and I just need some good 32bpp replacement pngs
12:03:23  <peter1138> bah
12:03:29  <peter1138> where does glGetProcAddress come from...
12:04:06  <Nickman> we should have 32bpp replacements for all the standard grfs
12:04:29  <Nickman> the TTD GRFs
12:05:21  <TrueBrain> yup
12:05:32  <Nickman> that would be nice ;)
12:05:54  <Nickman> but the 32bpp graphics development seems to be quite :s. Don't see much progress?
12:06:28  <TrueBrain> mostly because everyone is just doing something
12:06:50  <Eddi|zuHause2> yeah, nobody is organising anything
12:07:01  <TrueBrain> so for that, I am trying to make a website
12:07:21  <TrueBrain> I only am not an artist
12:07:29  <TrueBrain> so I am making up rules I have no idea if they work :p
12:07:50  <Eddi|zuHause2> a "project manager" does not necessary need to have any clue about the project :)
12:08:00  <TrueBrain> true, but it might be useful ;)
12:08:56  <Nickman> I can make webistes... :)
12:09:07  <Nickman> only can't draw shit :p
12:09:07  <TrueBrain> I can do that too :p
12:09:21  <TrueBrain> nah, the website is already kind of done (not even by me)
12:09:26  <Nickman> :D
12:09:37  <Nickman> what do you need for the site then?
12:10:41  <TrueBrain> I am going to list all current grfs (in png, 8bpp), and allow uploading of 32bpp images by users
12:10:43  <TrueBrain> which then are listed
12:10:49  <TrueBrain> maybe even a simple scoring system
12:10:59  <TrueBrain> and some guidelines how they should be made
12:11:06  <TrueBrain> (company color should be dark-blue, stuff like that)
12:11:35  <Nickman> sounds great, finally a central place for the graphics :)
12:11:43  <TrueBrain> and of course that when they upload an image, they give the copyright up to the OpenTTD Developers Team
12:11:47  <TrueBrain> exactly
12:11:51  <TrueBrain> and ones we can use freely
12:12:48  <Nickman> indeed, OpenTTD Team needs to be able to use the grafics without having to ask for permission all the time
12:13:08  <TrueBrain> exactly :) Else it is kind of useless
12:13:17  <TrueBrain> even more as hopefully multiple users will post graphics :)
12:13:28  <eekee> Feels wierd to be learing to make grfs at this time :)
12:13:40  <eekee> *learning
12:14:01  <Nickman> :D
12:14:20  <Nickman> if you need help with the site TrueBrain, I'm willing to help ;). I like webdevelopment :)
12:14:44  <TrueBrain> first I need to get those 8bpp PNGs with all data set as I would like :)
12:15:00  <TrueBrain> (we make use of PNG tEXt chunks to store x_offs and y_offs, of course they need to be in the 8bpp PNGs too)
12:15:05  <Eddi|zuHause2> what about a rule that the images should have some resemlence to the original ones?
12:15:05  <TrueBrain> although OpenTTD can't load them
12:15:24  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause2: that will be one of the biggest :) One in fact will be bigger: you can not take the original and modify it
12:15:41  <Eddi|zuHause2> yeah, of course
12:15:42  <TrueBrain> but I am really looking for a replacement that looks VERY good, but still has the TT feeling
12:15:48  <Nickman> yeah
12:17:23  <Eddi|zuHause2> some of the previously posted (huge) 32bpp images might look nice and all, but they just do not fit into the old graphics
12:17:24  *** Sug [] has joined #openttd
12:17:35  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause2: I totally agree
12:17:41  <TrueBrain> also, the replacement images need to be of the same dimension
12:17:46  <TrueBrain> not like we have now, twice or 4 times as big
12:17:55  <eekee> Really?
12:18:04  <TrueBrain> tile-sprites need to be pixel-perfect, else you get weird side-effects
12:18:19  <Eddi|zuHause2> hm, i could live with an additional x2 zoom version
12:18:27  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause2: the scaling routine can't :)
12:18:30  <eekee> I thought you were going for x2 x2 tiles, heh
12:18:36  <TrueBrain> most likely we will add that you can give pngs per zoom level
12:18:40  <eekee> I could too, lol
12:18:49  <TrueBrain> but runtime scaling is very poor
12:19:16  <eekee> I could live with a pixelly look at x2
12:19:56  <Eddi|zuHause2> yeah, i meant that you have a picture for each zoom level, in particular the current max zoom in, and a future x2 zoom
12:20:23  <TrueBrain> but for now I am already happy if I can get my hands on graphics for the current normal zoom level :)
12:21:06  <Nickman> hehe, would be cool ;)
12:21:27  <Eddi|zuHause2> well, you could start to collect normal and x2 images now, and worry about the implementation of x2 later :)
12:21:31  <Nickman> some of the graphics stated on the wiki look really great (espacially the terrain ones) and have the same look and feel as the original ones
12:21:50  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause2: then we have to collect all zoom levels immediatly
12:21:53  <TrueBrain> no tnx :)
12:22:09  <TrueBrain> Nickman: yeah, and sadly enough they are unusable as they are all zoom-in 2x
12:22:17  <TrueBrain> which makes them off by 1 pixel in normal zoom
12:22:28  <TrueBrain> causing graphical issues all over the place :(
12:23:05  <Eddi|zuHause2> i really think with current resolutions, a x2 zoom is necessary
12:23:35  <Eddi|zuHause2> also for gui elements
12:23:47  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause2: a zoom-in 2x will be created, if I can work some bugs, but don't blame the current resolutions :p
12:23:48  <Eddi|zuHause2> (but separately :))

12:24:40  <Eddi|zuHause2> well, tto was designed for 640x480, meanwhile a lot of people have 1600x1200 or more resolution
12:24:54  <Nickman> can't you just conatact the people who made those new grf to make some new renders TrueBrain?
12:24:58  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause2: so? :) I can still read most things just fine ;)
12:25:11  <TrueBrain> Nickman: possible, we will see if we can get them motivated
12:25:17  <TrueBrain> sadly enough Alltaken has a real job nowedays :p
12:25:17  <Eddi|zuHause2> well, but i can't if i sit 3m from the monitor :)
12:25:31  <TrueBrain> Eddi|zuHause2: so what you are talking about is a luxary problem
12:25:40  <TrueBrain> you could also just switch your resolution back to a normal size
12:25:44  <TrueBrain> solves your problem ;)
12:25:49  <Eddi|zuHause2> ttd is a luxury problem in itself :)
12:26:12  <Nickman> :D
12:26:29  <Nickman> yeah Alltaken made some nice graphics
12:31:49  <tokai|ni> the problem with those new graphics was the silly blender requirement:)
12:31:56  <tokai|ni> else i would have done a bunch
12:32:11  <TrueBrain> what blender requirement?
12:32:15  * eekee has a wierd action 4 issue. It's renaming the wrong vehicle
12:32:35  <tokai|ni> TrueBrain: the wiki says (or said) so.
12:32:58  <TrueBrain> hmm, can you find it for me?
12:33:33  <tokai|ni> seems its slighly adjusted:
12:34:02  <tokai|ni> TrueBrain: the problem is when u texture etc. your object in application X and then export it to blender an rerender it there it might come out completly different
12:34:42  <tokai|ni> a more general definition of light look and color schemes would have been better imho.. more freedom for the individual gfx artist
12:35:00  <TrueBrain> that is what I would suggest
12:35:53  <TrueBrain> <- didn't know it was really based on real buildings

12:38:42  <tokai|ni> TrueBrain: i even have an idea to come to many free graphics in 2 weeks. dunno if its doable.. needs some managing. on they do weekly/biweekly modelling competitions. One could organize a challenge to make graphics for OpenTTD. I could ask the guys if there is interest (but it needs lightsetup etc. defined (application unrelated)).
12:39:36  <TrueBrain> tokai|ni: I don't have any problems with that, we have a few requirements for the graphics, and the rest is free for all
12:39:38  <eekee> I think there's some buildings like the Buchanan Street houses down south here in Worthing, & the library here doesn't look any less strange than that Glasgow bank.
12:42:28  <tokai|ni> TrueBrain: i'll ask them then.
12:42:45  <TrueBrain> tokai|ni: please do :) We do need to finialize a tool to make the pngs with the x_offs and y_offs thingies
12:44:52  <eekee> Hm, I'm stuck on my refittable tram project. Action 4 is renaming the wrong vehicle, and the action 0 I copied isn't making sense when I refer to the wiki

12:52:04  <eekee> the action 0 is copied from srvttw.nfo with just the vehicle id changed to 50
12:54:36  <Maedhros> ok, as for the action 4, your action 3 is defining vehicle id 0x50, but you're renaming vehicle 0x01
12:54:37  <eekee> the action 4 rename is being applied to the original vehicle in srvttw.grf, which has vehicle ID 40. Mine is aparently a Powernaught Fizzy Drink Truck - the original name for road veh. 50
12:54:53  <peter1138> Maedhros: not quite
12:54:54  *** Nickman [] has quit [Quit: ( :: NoNameScript 4.02 :: )]

12:55:27  <Maedhros> hmm, ok
12:55:29  <eekee> oh,those 40 & 50 are in hex, sorry
12:56:03  <peter1138> so the 01 "@ should be 01 50 "
12:56:47  <Maedhros> aha
12:56:48  <eekee> ah lol ty :D
12:56:58  <Maedhros> also, your action 0 is providing properties for 17 vehicles...
12:57:01  <glx> grfcodec does funny things with strings :)
12:57:09  <eekee> I wondered why the veh number wasn't there, & what that @ waws lol
12:57:56  <eekee> yay!
12:58:23  <eekee> Maedhros: I thought it wsa providing 17 properties for 1 veh?

12:59:23  <eekee> It's ok, I had to double check that :D
13:03:03  <Maedhros> anyway, apart from missing 4 properties, what doesn't make sense about the action 0?
13:03:06  <eekee> The action 0 line I read as action 1, feature 1, setting hex11 properties on 1 vehicle, number hex50, but the first property appears to be 00 which isn't in the wiki

13:16:44  *** TheJosh [] has joined #openttd
13:16:47  <TheJosh> hey all
13:17:02  <TheJosh> so we now have 32bpp? cool
13:17:17  * TheJosh thinks about those transperent guis...
13:18:41  <Rubidium> TheJosh: I think you can stay in the thinking stage for quite some while; first cpp_gui must be finished I think
13:18:55  <DJGummikuh> cpp?
13:18:59  <DJGummikuh> c++ that is?
13:19:40  <Eddi|zuHause2> + in filenames is not that great of an idea :p
13:20:19  <TheJosh> Rubidium: i assumed it would not be ready for opacity just yet, it was only added like today or so
13:20:30  <Rubidium> only character that cannot be in a filename is the "/" ;)
13:20:44  <DJGummikuh> Eddi|zuHause2: that doesn't answer my question
13:20:50  <TheJosh> on linux machines, although windows is more dumb
13:20:58  <DJGummikuh> is cpp meant to be a filesys compatible version of c++?
13:21:17  <Eddi|zuHause2> if something is allowed, it does not mean it is a good idea :p
13:21:20  <DJGummikuh> or is that some screwed shortcut for centered piece positioning or such?
13:21:21  <Maedhros> one of them. i've also seen people using .cc as a file extension
13:21:24  <Rubidium> yeah, Windows is broken. You can not even call you file "con" (without quotes ofcourse)
13:21:38  <DJGummikuh> con?
13:21:51  <eekee> w00t w00t, one refittable tram
13:21:59  <TheJosh> cool
13:22:07  <TrueBrain>
13:22:11  <DJGummikuh> Rubidium: despite I never tried it, why is it forbidden?
13:22:33  <glx> con is the console
13:22:51  <DJGummikuh> lol that looks like a beautiful hall of mirrors
13:23:12  <Rubidium> copy con <filename>
13:23:17  <TheJosh> Rubidium: with the 32bpp, can I assume the NewGRF format will be extended for 32bpp support so that we wont need to have hundreds of pngs lying around?
13:23:21  <Rubidium> Microsoft's most basic text "editor"
13:23:37  <TrueBrain> okay, I really need to make a blog post
13:23:48  <Maedhros> TheJosh: it's not really safe to assume anything at the moment - it's all in the early stages ;)
13:23:55  <TheJosh> Cool
13:24:04  <TheJosh> i see you got that bug sorted Maedhros
13:24:12  <TrueBrain> TheJosh: for now NewGRF won't be extended with 32bpp suport, but an addition tar-format will be introduced that combines the PNGs to a single file
13:24:27  <TheJosh> that would be good
13:24:55  <TheJosh> will that end up replacing NewGRF by also holding the NewGRF data in a plain-text format?
13:25:01  <TheJosh> or xml or something?
13:25:24  <TrueBrain> NewGRF won't be replaced
13:25:30  <TrueBrain> 32bpp images are an extension to 8bpp
13:25:32  <TrueBrain> nothing more, nothing less
13:25:43  <TheJosh> ok cool
13:25:51  <TrueBrain> 8bpp is and will be the core bpp
13:25:58  <TrueBrain> optional you can add 32bpp graphics to it
13:26:35  <TheJosh> ok makes sence
13:27:55  <DJGummikuh> you know what I wonder about on
13:28:13  <DJGummikuh> How the heck can you make a screenshot of a CAKE? isn't this supposed to be an old-school photo?
13:28:55  <glx> there's a screenshot on the cake :)
13:28:57  <Rubidium> there's a screenshot on the cake
13:30:25  <eekee> XD
13:30:53  <DJGummikuh> We've made a screenshot of it, check the screenshots section. <-- I think this does not try to tell me that there's a screenshot on the cake ;D

13:35:27  <Sug> wow, the 32bpp blitter is slow
13:37:48  <TrueBrain> 3 to 4 times as slow, yes
13:38:03  <TrueBrain> a more optimized 32bpp blitter is being produced, but takes time
13:38:25  <Rubidium> first make it work, then make it pretty ;)
13:38:32  <TrueBrain> exactly :)
13:39:46  <Sug> fair enough, didnt expect it to be perfect first time
13:40:15  <TrueBrain> it is perfect, just slow :p
13:40:45  <Sug> are you planning on increasing the size of things, as I understand it now everything has to be the same dimensions as they always have been
13:41:12  <TrueBrain> and what is your question? :p
13:41:59  <Sug> if your planning on increasing the tile size i guess
13:42:20  <TrueBrain> why would we? It is perfet as it is :)
13:42:40  <TheJosh> the doxygen docs list every function in openttd, right?
13:42:54  <Rubidium> tiles will always be 16 by 16 ;)
13:43:13  <TrueBrain> TheJosh: updated every night, yes
13:43:18  <TrueBrain>
13:43:27  <TrueBrain> or 64x31 in pixel-format :)
13:43:28  <TheJosh> so how come the function  GetVehicle doesnt show up anywhere? i cant find it anywhere
13:43:47  <Sug> so they are getting bigger
13:43:57  <TrueBrain> nope
13:44:00  <TrueBrain> they are already that size
13:44:04  <Sug> oh ok
13:44:16  <Sug> then 32bpp seems a bit pointless
13:44:22  <TrueBrain> only to you maybe
13:44:43  <TrueBrain> TheJosh: doxygen is known to hide things ;) Also, non-documented things can be hard to find
13:44:56  <TheJosh> i cant even find it with grep
13:45:27  <Sug> well maybe, but if a train is only 32 pixels long. having more colours doesnt seem necceasry
13:45:36  <TrueBrain> and why would that be?
13:46:02  <peter1138> heh
13:46:04  <XeryusTC> Sug: that is a silly statement :P
13:46:09  <Sug> well yea you get more colours available
13:46:11  <glx> Sug: but it can have different color than the 256 in 8bpp
13:46:30  <TrueBrain> TheJosh: btw, GetVehicle is a very special function ;) Try to find it in the source ;)
13:46:49  <Sug> yea I get that
13:47:16  <peter1138> people seem to be under the impression that 32bpp was the holy grail
13:47:24  <peter1138> suddenly loads of different things would become possible
13:47:31  <glx> and you can have different transparency levels too
13:47:41  <TrueBrain> or that the game all of a sudden looks like The Sims :p
13:47:43  <peter1138> in reality, all that 32bpp allows is, well, 32bpp
13:47:43  <Sug> but it seemed from the previous work done on it that you were actually increasing the detail you could get
13:48:02  <TheJosh> TrueBrain: how is GetVehicle special?
13:48:03  <peter1138> tile size does not need to increase to increase detail :)
13:48:04  <TrueBrain> Sug: only the artists wanted to make that impression
13:48:10  <Sug> ahh
13:48:30  <TrueBrain> TheJosh: as I truely don't know where it is defined :p
13:48:32  <peter1138> TheJosh: it's a function made from a macro
13:48:33  <Sug> when i say tile size i meant the pixels in a tile
13:48:47  <peter1138> so do i :)
13:48:54  <TrueBrain> <- anyway, ins and outs on 32bpp
13:49:03  <glx> maybe with some zoom-in levels ;) (but not now)
13:50:16  <TheJosh> so GetVehicle basically doesnt exist? cool
13:50:36  <TheJosh> i have fixed my problem without seeing GetVehicle anyway
13:50:49  <Maedhros> it does, but you won't find it with grep unless you run gcc -E over the source ;)
13:51:12  <Rubidium> TheJosh/TrueBrain: GetVehicle is a pool method, i.e. created via a macro
13:51:55  <Rubidium> it's defined at line 64 of oldpool.h
13:52:47  <TheJosh> "static inline type* Get##name(uint index)"  <== i see why grep missed it
13:53:09  <TheJosh> why is it defined in such an odd way?

13:54:50  <Bjarni> TrueLight was enlightening :/
13:55:46  <TrueBrain> Sug: more over, maybe I should have added that too: increases the amount of pixels per tile won't really resolve anything. I don't see any reason why someone just uses 2 or 4 tiles or what ever if he wants to make something big
13:55:53  <TrueBrain> what I saw in 32bpp scared me: 4 houses on one tile
13:55:54  <TrueBrain> stuff like that
13:56:00  <TrueBrain> that isn't TT-alike, that is a whole new game
13:56:24  <TrueBrain> but okay, those 'changes' people tried to make really are unrelated to 32bpp, but are on a whole other level :)
13:56:26  <Sug> yea, I didn't think of that
13:56:42  <peter1138> and longer trains don't need larger tiles either
13:56:58  <peter1138> probably it could be done with a minor patch quite easily
13:57:05  <Sug> so in that case, are you planning to increase sprites sizes so you can have bigger things

14:01:17  <peter1138> indeed

14:03:48  * eekee has a squeaky tram. Ponders
14:12:59  <eekee> yay workie! I forgot to copy some bytes
14:16:21  <TheJosh> how can i get the owner of a vehicle? i see the owner parameter (type PlayerByte) but how can I relate that to the current player?
14:16:45  <TheJosh> this line: "if (v->owner == _current_player) {" does not seem to be working for me
14:17:18  <Rubidium> that should just work
14:17:25  <Rubidium> but is the current player what you expect it to be?
14:17:28  <Maedhros> where are you trying to use it?
14:17:56  <TheJosh> in LoadUnloadVehicle (econonmy.cpp)
14:18:07  <TheJosh> line 1478
14:19:00  <Maedhros> LoadUnloadVehicle is called as part of the vehicle tick handler, so you can't assume _current_player will be right there
14:19:01  <Rubidium> current player is undefined in there
14:19:43  <Noldo> joy of globals
14:20:25  <Rubidium> Noldo: even without globals this problem would exist
14:20:32  <TheJosh> so how can I get the actual current player? i would like my loading indicators to only show for the current player
14:20:50  <Rubidium> current player isn't what you want
14:21:11  <Rubidium> as current player can also be the town or water when they are having their "ticks"
14:21:12  <TheJosh> oh
14:21:32  <Rubidium> I think you want local player
14:21:35  <Maedhros> what exactly are loading indicators? i'd have thought they'd be better off in the gui anyway...
14:21:37  <TheJosh> would a town tick LoadUnloadVehicle?
14:21:58  <peter1138> no
14:22:08  <TheJosh> loading indicators are little numbers above the train as it loads. this is just the code that updates the variable for the gui
14:23:44  <Eddi|zuHause2> TheJosh: maybe you are better off using _local_player
14:24:07  <TheJosh> Eddi|zuHause2: thanks, that appears to be working
14:24:31  <TheJosh> play as player cheat will probably not be happy, but i dont care

15:44:32  <stillunknown> I was wondering if goto statements are bad for performance.
15:45:20  <hylje> they are bad for maintainability
15:45:26  <Maedhros> why would they be? i'd assume they'd be closer to the actual machine code than a lot of C++ stuff
15:45:32  <Nickman> depends on how you use em stillunknown
15:46:10  <Nickman> goto's are not very efficiënt, because in some languages they rescan the entire document to find where to go, depends on the language...
15:46:58  <stillunknown> Nickman: the way they are used in ottd
15:47:02  <Rubidium> Nickman: that's compile time, so that doesn't matter

17:10:04  <Rubidium> then bt
17:10:10  <Digitalfox> I have been trying to understand the differences between monorail and maglev in real life.. But for what i see the maglev uses monorail track and so monorail is in fact maglev right?
17:10:12  <Biff> yup, but i dunno where the core dump is
17:10:23  <Rubidium> and paste that to *if* it's useful :)
17:10:35  <Rubidium> Digitalfox: wrong
17:10:53  <Biff> i think the game changes pwd, because it was not in the directory i started in
17:10:57  <Rubidium> monorail means vehicle driving (physically touching) one since rail
17:11:19  <Rubidium> maglev means that the vehicle floats (does not physically touch anything)
17:11:36  <Digitalfox> Magnetic levitation train (maglev) systems by the German Transrapid were built as straddle-type monorails, as they are highly stable and allow rapid deceleration from great speed. When in full-speed operation maglev trains actually hover over the track and are thus not in physical contact with it. It is the fastest monorail, running at up to 311 mph (501 km/h).

17:16:48  <Digitalfox> But Rubidium if so, why don't any one make a monorail train set?? Do people think monorail is not the future or doesn't it offer any real benefict over normal trains and maglev?
17:17:13  *** wolfy is now known as Wolfensteijn
17:17:57  <Rubidium> Digitalfox: because in TTDP, which almost all newgrfs are based on, monorail or maglev (usually monorail) is sacrifised to have electrified rails
17:18:18  <Digitalfox> In newgrf it seems people don't care or like monorail and in real life people always talk about maglev..
17:18:59  <Digitalfox> Rubidium: I see, but it's a shame because i like monorail :)
17:19:08  <Biff> if you first do the replacement from ordinary rails, you will wait for maglev

17:21:42  <Biff> hylje: the problem is when you have several hundred trains
17:21:49  <TrueBrain> but nowedays everyone is lazy and use the auto-convert tool :(
17:21:50  <Rubidium> then just leave those "old" trains running on the old track and build a new state-of-the-art monorail or maglev passenger network
17:21:52  <Biff> it takes hours to replace all the trains

17:37:55  <Biff> hmm, weird
17:38:01  <dihedral> i workd as a net and sys admin in england for a couple of years
17:38:04  <Biff> i didnt think the game had been going that long
17:38:09  <dihedral> i became slightly paranoid
17:38:19  <Biff> started in 1920 or 30 i think
17:38:23  <Rubidium> hmm, no, I've misread something
17:38:27  <TrueBrain> poor dihedral
17:38:28  <TrueBrain> :p
17:38:42  <TrueBrain> I know that I can't avoid all things, so I just gave up :p
17:38:50  <Rubidium> anyhow, the house is already "corrupt" in the savegame that you gave me
17:39:15  <Biff> i see
17:39:18  <Rubidium> and on retrospect, it's build this year (the 128 was because there's some bit telling that the house is fully built)
17:39:43  <dihedral> TrueBrain: one cannot avoid all things, but one can at least decide to not give up :-D
17:40:05  <Rubidium> Biff: when you open that savegame that you gave me
17:40:15  <TrueBrain> I did; I have a big magnet lying around :p
17:40:25  <dihedral> lol
17:40:27  <Rubidium> open the console and type "scrollto 232593"
17:41:00  <Rubidium> that should show you some corrupted graphics in the middle of your screen
17:41:13  <Rubidium> (like half a building)
17:41:25  <Biff> ah yeah
17:42:05  <Rubidium> now I need the savegame from before those buildings where there.
17:42:28  <Rubidium> well, one that actually "creates" those corrupted buildings when letting it run for a (short) while
17:42:46  <Biff> hmm
17:42:51  <Biff> i'll try to find one
17:43:29  <Biff> i found one with the same building, but it could be deleted without crashing the game

17:51:48  <dihedral> using random data of coruse
17:52:48  <Rubidium> that is _slow_
17:52:52  <TrueBrain> dihedral: you do know that they showed that even after that, data can be recovered?
17:52:59  <TrueBrain> the only efficient way I found is to burn the disks

17:54:03  <dihedral> you are burning not melting right?
17:54:04  <TrueBrain> dihedral: when I mean burning something, I mean that it won't be in his original form anymore :p
17:54:05  <Rubidium> just disolve the whole thing in some "aqua regia"

17:54:29  <TrueBrain> that in fact is pretty simple
17:54:32  <TrueBrain> when you got the HD open
17:54:38  <dihedral> but it is possible to recover data after say the building burnt down
17:54:52  <TrueBrain> when the platters (what is the english word) stay inside their chassis

17:55:16  <TrueBrain> (same as wood doesn't burn when you put it in a tube and heat it
17:55:22  <Maedhros> and platters is indeed the right word, TrueBrain :)
17:55:26  <TrueBrain> good :)
17:55:44  <dihedral> thought they were discs :-D
17:56:10  <ln->
17:56:14  <Rubidium> they are discs, but technicians call them platters
17:56:25  <Sacro_> the disc is the whole object
17:56:37  <Sacro_> but it has indivdual parts such as platters and heads and things
17:56:37  <TrueBrain> the platters are those small round things inside the disk :)
17:56:52  <dihedral> ln-: i want one of those...
17:56:58  <Rubidium> Sacro_: but a platter is a disc (the geometric one)

19:47:46  <Rubidium> those are the dummy objects
19:47:48  <peter1138> because there is a finite limit of vehicle ids

19:50:20  <hylje> vehicle namespaces!
19:50:31  <Wolf01> a system like rollercoaster tycoon or locomotion, with something like normal+64 vehicles slots should be enough

19:51:39  <peter1138> Wolf01: do you really know what you are talking about?
19:51:41  <Wolf01> and the ability to tell the game to reserve or replace the normal vehicles with the sets ones
19:52:13  <Wolf01> i think not ;)
19:53:11  <stillunknown> I wonder if anyone will ever make the 3d equivilant of ottd, with good gameplay.
19:53:43  <Phazorx> stillunknown: is there a point?
19:53:43  <stillunknown> Maybe once games are not rushed to release.
19:54:17  <stillunknown> A point to make such a game, or if i'm making a point?

19:55:07  <Touqen> I'd be surprised if TE ever saw the light of day.
19:55:56  <peter1138> but it's got a coder now
19:56:05  <Touqen> Though I think a transport game with a heavy focus on economics might be interesting (for those of us who really like business stuff)

19:59:27  <Touqen> For those of us who like realism.
20:00:02  <peter1138> i wonder how to offer some 'special effects' with opengl...

20:03:09  <Biff> is it possible to delete a building from savegame?
20:03:17  <peter1138> well i can make a 'night-time' mode i guess
20:03:20  <stillunknown>
20:03:22  <Belugas> simulation is not real life.  It is an imitation
20:03:48  <Wolf01> peter1138, don't copy my ideas! ;)
20:03:50  <Touqen> Striving for realism isn't necessarily a bad thing.
20:03:51  <peter1138> i like my realistic square tiles
20:04:13  <Belugas> it is, if it looses the essence of the game
20:04:25  <peter1138> < spot the difference ;)
20:04:31  <Touqen> Not if the essence is realism.
20:04:50  <Belugas> well.. the essence of TTD is certainly not realism
20:05:07  <Touqen> Clearly
20:05:17  <Touqen> peter1138: Aren't those male glasses?
20:05:23  <Belugas> peter1138 : quick glence, seeing none :)
20:05:28  <Touqen> And she only has one earring
20:05:48  <hylje> one earring :(
20:06:14  <peter1138> clearly the other FELL OFF

20:06:47  <stillunknown> peter1138: does this mean the opengl renderer is coming along?

20:07:27  <peter1138>
20:07:29  <stillunknown> Does it help performance?

20:37:30  <Ailure> there's a null charcther

21:48:39  <Sacro> nothing to cool there i don't reckon
21:48:49  <Phazorx> Sacro: breaks
21:48:53  <mikk36>
21:49:02  <Sacro> Phazorx: brakes?
21:49:03  <mikk36> Sacro, body ?
21:49:34  <Phazorx> Sacro: graphite disks go read and heat up to 500C when it goes from 200 to 50 in 2 seconds
21:49:38  <Phazorx> go red
21:49:42  <mikk36> f1 drivers have liquid cooling for body
21:49:59  <Sacro> 500C? its about 1500
21:50:17  <Sacro> they run cool around 750
21:50:28  <Phazorx> 1500 is above steel meting temperature
21:50:56  <Phazorx> i could be wrong about 500 but it's unlikey to be 1500
