04:02:00  <mikk36> uhm
04:02:06  <mikk36> i've got a bug :D
04:02:09  <mikk36> with 10295
04:02:23  <mikk36> after downloading the 1341KB map, openttd just crashes
04:02:25  <mikk36> win
04:03:01  <Jerub> that's the kind of bug we all just love.
04:03:07  <mikk36> and there are players inside playing
04:03:20  <mikk36> the connection is 2Mbps, so not the slowest
04:03:33  <mikk36> not overstressed
04:03:39  <mikk36> ping to the server is ~10ms
04:04:30  <mikk36> pause on join is enabled as default
04:06:09  <mikk36> no grf's are used
04:06:45  <mikk36> i will try again from my workplace, but will not place any hopes

04:53:46  <Rubidium> no idea, it "just works" under linux
04:55:04  <Phazorx> Rubidium: any release i tried compiling with debug crashes on nay network related
04:55:55  <Rubidium> sounds like a broken gdb or gcc creating broken debug binaries to me
04:56:59  <Phazorx> glx has same problem
04:57:12  <Phazorx> and i have rpetty much most recent vanila mingw/msys
04:57:20  *** Alanin is now known as alanin
04:57:43  <Phazorx> hmm... i should try to compile soemtihng esle simple and see if that crashes to
04:59:05  <Phazorx> is there something simiar to netcat, udp based
04:59:27  <Phazorx> which i can use as a test case
05:00:22  <Rubidium> a well, it's not OTTD's fault in general, maybe something todo with Windows and OTTD
05:00:39  <Rubidium> as it works for me when joining a server
05:00:48  <Phazorx> that's can be proven if a testcase fails as well
05:01:11  <Rubidium> anyhow, I'm gone

06:55:56  <Ailure> would be fun
06:56:04  <Ailure> if we could have a donut-shaped world
06:56:05  <Phazorx> where is smooth economy behavior in cide?
06:56:12  <Phazorx> industry_cmd?
06:56:12  <Ailure> like in freeciv
06:56:20  <Ailure> or earthshaped too :p
06:56:48  <Phazorx> Ailure: i ithnk plane will do
06:57:22  <Ailure> well
06:57:29  <Ailure> I think it would make some big maps more intresting
06:57:43  <Ailure> you can have a railway line going around the earth
06:58:18  <Ailure> in TT, I get the illusion of being stuck on a island
06:58:22  <Ailure> isolated rest from the world
06:58:28  <Ailure> instead of it being it's own world
06:59:12  <hylje> Star Trek: the Animation. One season of lol, wut? ...IN SPACE!
06:59:16  <Phazorx> so if going through egdes woud make train apper on over side it would be better ?
07:00:07  <hylje> i had a crazy idea about a dynamic persistent world
07:00:23  <hylje> not quite a round world but expanding over time
07:00:33  <Phazorx> very realistic :)
07:00:41  <hylje> yes
07:00:48  <hylje> totally
07:00:52  <Phazorx> heh
07:01:02  <Phazorx> where's the damn smooth economy?
07:01:29  <hylje> i dunno
07:01:37  <hylje> grep economy openttd.cfg
07:02:51  <Phazorx> i need the code not patch

07:53:51  <Ailure> no no no
07:54:15  <Ailure> although that's probably what makes it tricky to implement :p
07:54:55  <Ailure> the map would loop in all directions or something
07:55:09  <Ailure> although that can get a bit confusing :p
07:58:01  <Phazorx> isnt that what i just said?
07:58:58  <Ailure> hmmm

07:59:44  <hylje> heh
08:00:06  <Ailure> I played with the idea of servers connecting to each and could send trains to each other
08:00:15  <hylje> yes
08:00:22  <hylje> net junctions in many senses
08:00:40  <Ailure> that would be potentiionally intresting

08:02:21  <peter1138> disconnect, oddly enough
08:02:21  <Ailure> send the trains into a void?
08:02:23  <Ailure> :D

08:50:04  <Smoky555> hi !  How i can place different signal type on one tile? Is it possible?

08:52:34  <Ailure> ooh
08:52:38  <Ailure> it's actually possible now?

09:28:13  *** Nickman [] has joined #openttd
09:30:00  <Rubidium> mikk36: that savegame of yours is basically broken by a bug in trunk; trunk can store "only" 65535 references to cargopackets and you've got like 90000 cargopackets in the savegame, which means it wraps around at 65536 and that makes it use other packets which makes lots of things go haywire.
09:30:21  <mikk36> oh, nice :P
09:30:22  <Rubidium> What I can do is remove *all* cargopackets from the game so you can continue it, or you have to use an older savegame
09:30:28  <mikk36> nah it's opk
09:30:30  <mikk36> ok
09:30:37  <mikk36> the guys are still in and playing it
09:30:41  <Rubidium> anyhow, a fix will be coming
09:30:44  <mikk36> as long as they don't drop out, they're fine
09:30:53  <Rubidium> mikk36: exactly ;)
09:30:55  <mikk36> although the cpu usage is high as hell
09:31:38  <mikk36> 1.6Ghz removing all cargopackets just removes all waiting cargo and cargo on the move ?
09:31:39  <Rubidium> mikk36: that's because there is a custom made leak checker for cargo packets running every tick
09:32:14  <mikk36> 1.6Ghz was about the cpu running it
09:32:15  <mikk36> P4
09:32:16  <Rubidium> but that will be removed in a while
09:32:21  <mikk36> :)
09:32:36  <dihedral> Rubidium: r10290

09:37:18  <dihedral> do productions at 24/30 T
09:37:40  <dihedral> so basically below 32
09:38:00  <dihedral> peter1138: and why would i post a random revision number?
09:38:06  <peter1138> "do productions at 24/30 T" does not parse
09:38:09  <dihedral> just for the sake of not making any sense
09:38:30  <peter1138> dihedral: well, ok, 30 minutes ago it would've made sense ;)
09:39:27  <dihedral> just thought i'd pass it on :-)
09:39:52  <dihedral> personally i ignore industies that are that low

10:17:56  <Eddi|zuHause3> if i had to guess, the offset was "optimised" for right traffic side, and it looks odd with left (or "wrong" :p) traffic side
10:17:57  <Rubidium> that tram's first part's sprite is 7/8th of a normal tram, but the newgrf doesn't say so
10:18:00  <peter1138> eekee: ah, yes, i've not played a small game since the new bridges...
10:18:29  <peter1138> Eddi|zuHause3: no, the offset is just wrong

11:09:35  <dihedral> just in case you are getting latest trunk/

11:22:31  <dihedral> sorry = 0
11:22:34  <eekee> o
11:22:38  <dihedral> does it in the mean time mean
11:22:49  <dihedral> protected companies are not made unprotected/purged
11:23:23  <Brianetta> no
11:23:52  <dihedral> Brianetta: was hoping to see you around :-)
11:23:52  <Brianetta> If you have any form of auto-purge on, all companies will be purged in 254 months or less.
11:24:20  <dihedral> but autopilot can do that right?
11:24:20  <Brianetta> Why were you hoping to see me?
11:24:28  <Brianetta> autopilot can't do anything time based
11:24:36  <Brianetta> unless you want it real time
11:24:45  <Brianetta> as in, by the clock, not by the game date
11:25:02  *** lolman [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]

11:25:51  <Brianetta> why kick?
11:26:00  <dihedral> i dont like unprotected companies !

11:26:38  <Brianetta> Well, you can put that code into autopilot yourself.  It's free software, after all.
11:26:53  <Brianetta> dihedral: How else would you suggest I determine whether a company is passworded?

11:28:51  <dihedral> still - nice
11:28:53  <Brianetta> dihedral: The dedicated server console is badly documented, mostly ignored and lacking many important features.  autopilot is always playing catchup, which is made harder when trying to maintain backward compatibility.

11:32:23  <dihedral> oh
11:33:50  <eekee> stillunknown: food's place is taken by goods in building accepts
11:34:06  <dihedral> are the say commands then hardcoded for ingame to autopilot?

11:34:36  <Brianetta> yes
11:35:10  * dihedral things Brianetta aint very talkative :-)
11:35:30  <Brianetta> I'm a bit frustrated with autopilot
11:35:42  <Brianetta> Servers running in autopilot tend to quit
11:35:53  <Brianetta> where servers not running in autopilot do not
11:35:55  <peter1138> strangeness :/
11:35:56  <Brianetta> and I have no idea why
11:36:27  <Brianetta> All I know is that autopilot receives an EOF from openttd, and the process exits.
11:36:44  <dihedral> uh
11:36:48  <dihedral> not so nice!
11:37:11  <Brianetta> It resists all attempts to debug
11:37:19  <Brianetta> especially as it's relatively rare
11:37:28  <Brianetta> but if my Standard Server isn't running, it's because that happened.

11:38:26  <Rubidium> Brianetta: what commands are you really missing?
11:38:27  <Brianetta> admin intervention, every time
11:39:40  <Brianetta> Rubidium: Information.  Most of the stuff that's available through the UDP protocol would be nice, although backwards compatibility will make it harder to capitalise on new things appearing.
11:40:13  <Brianetta> autopilot supports 0.4.8, but the companies command in IRC just blanks out
11:40:31  <dihedral> on 0.4.8?
11:40:34  <Eddi|zuHause3> what about doing an autopilot snapshot for each version, and screw backwards compatibility?
11:40:36  <Brianetta> so none of the internal code depends on it
11:40:56  <Brianetta> Eddi|zuHause3: People miss the new features.
11:40:57  * dihedral likes Eddi|zuHause3's idea
11:41:17  <dihedral> but one cannot have trunk/ features in an 0.4 game
11:41:28  <Brianetta> I don't specifically support trunk
11:41:38  <Eddi|zuHause3> i mean, provide a 0.4(.8) version, but stop developing it
11:41:40  <Brianetta> My server runs 0.5
11:41:58  <Eddi|zuHause3> and do a 0.5 version that is backwards compatible only for 0.5.x servers
11:42:00  <Brianetta> Eddi|zuHause3: Nobody would use it, unless I fixed bugs
11:42:06  <Brianetta> and I do often have bgs to fix
11:42:27  <Brianetta> I'd rather have one base of code to maintain on teh bugs front
11:42:43  <dihedral> make it modular
11:42:48  <Brianetta> It *is* modular
11:42:58  <Brianetta> as modular as can be
11:43:04  <Eddi|zuHause3> well, then i can't help you any further :)
11:43:16  <dihedral> i mean in a way that the !companies command
11:43:24  <dihedral> has a plugin for 0.4.8
11:43:24  <Brianetta> unfortunately, the event loop is handled by Expect
11:43:27  <dihedral> and one for 0.5.2
11:43:47  <Brianetta> dihedral: Should I assume that the user will put the correct version in?
11:43:59  <dihedral> hmmm... yes :-P
11:44:10  <dihedral> just needs to be documented
11:44:22  <Brianetta> Have you read the documentation?
11:44:23  <dihedral> or autoload plugins depending on the version configured
11:44:41  <dihedral> to some extent yes
11:44:59  <Brianetta> Well done.  You, DaleStan and me are the only ones I know of.
11:45:01  <Maedhros> Brianetta: what would need to be changed before timetables became useful to you?
11:45:32  <Brianetta> Maedhros: Interesting question.  There needs to be some way of anchoring the timetable.
11:45:43  <Brianetta> That is, the timetable needs an external point of reference.
11:46:14  <dihedral> Brianetta: i would love to see the console of ottd become more powerfull!
11:46:27  <Maedhros> would being able to set the date that the timetable should start for each vehicle help?
11:46:31  <Brianetta> Maedhros: I have an idea
11:47:05  <Brianetta> Put a command in a timetable which, when the train reaches it, sends a "signal"
11:47:12  <dihedral> Maedhros: it would be great if the timetables showed the average time taken on the last round
11:47:17  <Brianetta> The player can put this into one timetable
11:47:31  <Rubidium> Brianetta: quite a lot of information is passed via the UDP packets
11:47:48  <Brianetta> Then make other vehicles' timetables "depend" on this signal by making them wait until that signal is sent
11:48:00  <Brianetta> Rubidium: I am very aware
11:48:01  <Rubidium> and just dumping exactly what those UDP packets sent is probably not "the right thing"
11:48:09  * dihedral is liking Brianetta's idea
11:48:19  <Maedhros> Brianetta: hmm, challenging :)
11:48:23  <Brianetta> Rubidium: I have the UDP code written in Tcl, and I intend to embed it in autopilot at some point
11:48:36  <blathijs> brr, tcl
11:48:42  <dihedral> :-P
11:48:43  *** prakti [] has joined #openttd
11:48:55  <Rubidium> but as I don't have any experience with running (especially managing) a server, I wouldn't know what useful commands would be
11:49:00  <Brianetta> Maedhros: So, ebd result is that you can start a train, but it won't move (or increment its late counter) until the master train reaches a certain point on its journey
11:49:32  <dihedral> Rubidium: anything that gives power to admins :-)
11:49:35  <Brianetta> Rubidium: To make it useful, you have to treat it as a screen reader (:
11:49:37  *** prakti [] has quit []
11:49:41  <Brianetta> The admin is blind
11:50:00  <Brianetta> Being able to list signs and their locations would be excellent
11:50:18  <Brianetta> Being able to list stations, vehicles, towns
11:50:44  <Brianetta> Of course, interpreting the output with autopilot is a separate challenge (:
11:51:12  <dihedral> make it human readable
11:51:27  <Brianetta> dihedral: It always will be
11:51:28  <Rubidium> yeah, but dumping all signs or *all* vehicles
11:51:35  <Brianetta> Rubidium: With filters
11:51:35  <dihedral> i mean easily :-)
11:51:51  <Brianetta> Signs are coloured by company (or world)
11:52:16  <Brianetta> Also, the admin can't ask the server directly what the landscape is, what newgrfs are running, etc
11:52:38  <dihedral> being able to send a raw message would be nice too
11:52:51  <dihedral> ie. excluding the [All] Console:
11:52:54  <Brianetta> dihedral: That doesn't make an awful lot of sense...
11:53:08  <Brianetta> Oh, like a global echo
11:53:13  <dihedral> :-)
11:53:22  * Brianetta shrugs
11:53:22  <dihedral> when people from IRC chat to autopilot
11:53:32  <Brianetta> autopilot chats back, yes
11:53:43  <dihedral> autopilot can do a message "[All] autopilot:" out of it
11:53:45  <Brianetta> Bridging two chat protocols using a wrapper is always like that
11:54:04  <dihedral> then sending a raw message is usefull
11:54:08  <Brianetta> There's a bridge between FreeNode's #Tcl and a Jabber chat channel
11:54:27  <Brianetta> and everybody just has to get used to seeing the bridge's nickname at the start of each line
11:54:51  <Brianetta> Anyway, autopilot's IRC module is completely optional
11:54:51  *** oxygene_ [] has joined #openttd
11:54:55  <dihedral> does not mean it has to be the same for ottd
11:55:18  <Brianetta> We should be suggesting things which are useful to admins, not to me as a script dev
11:55:28  <dihedral> welcome messages, add a reason message for kicking
11:56:04  <Brianetta> autopilot was written to *overcome* shortcomings in the dedicated server, not to demand enhancements
11:56:15  <dihedral> Brianetta: autopilot is a sort of admin
11:56:22  <dihedral> it's an admins helper :-P
11:56:37  <Brianetta> TO begin, it was only there to greet players and to pause the game
11:56:46  <Brianetta> Those tasks are no longer necessary
11:56:59  <dihedral> but there are other tasks that it can do
11:57:19  <Brianetta> It was also used to backport fixes
11:57:30  <dihedral> like having it handle a map list and load the next scenario to the next game
11:57:35  <Brianetta> For example, you can set net_frame_freq in openttd.cfg for 0.4.8 with autopilot
11:57:43  <Brianetta> it parses the config and sets the variable
11:57:50  <Brianetta> openttd does that itself now
11:58:17  <Brianetta> dihedral: autopilot would need a radical overhaul to be able to reset itself for a new game
11:58:17  <dihedral> the same way ottd grows autopilot can have new administrative features
11:58:24  <Brianetta> CUrrently, you exit it and start a new one
11:58:34  <dihedral> would autopilot have to restar itself?
11:58:47  <Brianetta> It'd have to reset a whole load of internal state
11:58:57  <Brianetta> and be wrapped in some sort of loop
11:58:57  <dihedral> run a load command?
11:59:22  <dihedral> the trigger could be  an echo in scripts/on_dedicated.scr
11:59:34  <Brianetta> It'd also have to be able to archive off the current saved game, so that it wasn't overwritten
12:00:07  <stillunknown> Brianetta: Who still uses 0.4.x?
12:00:16  <dihedral> Brianetta: if i put an echo "next scenario" in scripts/on_dedicated.scr
12:00:35  <dihedral> and the game reaches the end game date
12:00:41  <dihedral> and starts a newgame
12:00:51  <dihedral> it would output next scenario on the console
12:01:07  <Brianetta> dihedral: Can you code in Tcl?
12:01:10  <dihedral> when that happens autopilot could run load blah.scn
12:01:21  <dihedral> Brianetta: unfor not yet
12:01:39  <Brianetta> Learn it, and you can have SVN access
12:01:46  <dihedral> lol
12:01:59  <dihedral> autopilot is your baby :-P
12:02:07  <dihedral> emphasis on your :-D
12:02:10  <Brianetta> It's free software
12:02:28  <Brianetta> As its owner and maintainer, I don't *have* to accept all patches supbmitted
12:02:31  <Brianetta> but I can
12:02:35  <Brianetta> and it'll always be GPL
12:02:37  <stillunknown> Why not put effort into improving openttd?
12:02:57  <dihedral> stillunknown: because openttd does not have to handle everything autopilot does
12:02:59  <Brianetta> stillunknown: Still working on the Tk interface, and trying to suss out why it causes dedicated servers to quietly quit
12:03:01  <dihedral> would not make sense
12:03:22  <dihedral> Brianetta: you know php?
12:03:30  <Brianetta> dihedral: Unfortunately
12:03:50  <dihedral> how about i learn some tcl and help you out and you help me out :-D
12:04:01  <Brianetta> What do you want help with?
12:04:12  <dihedral> OpenTTDLib
12:04:20  <dihedral> :-P
12:04:38  <Brianetta> Well, I wrote a UDP parser for OpenTTD, and I have written several PHP applications
12:05:28  <dihedral> afk (auf klo) :-D
12:08:48  <dihedral> back :-P
12:09:12  *** Gekkko` [] has quit []
12:10:03  * SpComb has a that does master-server server listings and server-info
12:10:07  <dihedral> Brianetta: would it be too hard to include?
12:10:25  <Brianetta> A python script?
12:10:40  <Brianetta> It'd markedly increase the requirements
12:10:55  <dihedral> i did not mean the py script
12:11:01  <dihedral> i ment the loading scenarios
12:11:22  <Brianetta> It'd be difficult to include right now
12:11:28  <Brianetta> but anything's possible
12:11:41  <Brianetta> At the moment, autopilot is written with one presumption
12:11:43  <dihedral> if there was a unique something to be retrieved from the games (unique to each round)
12:11:48  <dihedral> then i would do some data mining
12:11:53  <Brianetta> that there's one game, after which everything quits.
12:12:19  <Maedhros> Brianetta: i've been looking at this, and setting a time for a vehicle to start the timetable is a lot easier (to code) than your idea about emitting signals
12:12:22  <Brianetta> The MySQL module uses this assumption most of all
12:12:27  <Rubidium> dihedral: how can we add something "unique" to a game?
12:12:28  <Brianetta> and the startup sequence
12:12:45  <Maedhros> Brianetta: will that be enough to make them useful though, do you think?
12:13:03  <Brianetta> Maedhros: Depends how the time thing works.  I'm not aware of a clock in the game, as such
12:13:26  <Maedhros> well, currently you tell it to start the timetable on a specific date
12:13:31  <dihedral> Brianetta: a timestamp of when the current map was started would suffice
12:13:31  <Brianetta> I posted a suggestion somewhere, or wrote here on IRC once...
12:14:08  * Brianetta does a quick search
12:14:20  <dihedral> would be also interesting if games are paused when nobody is playing
12:14:29  <Brianetta> They are...
12:14:30  <dihedral> and one could show since when the game was running
12:14:59  <Rubidium> dihedral: primarily because you don't know whether something is unique, you can't store the last "id" in openttd.cfg and then you would need to store the id in the savegame too
12:15:04  <Brianetta> Maedhros: My original suggestion involved a clock
12:15:18  <Rubidium> but what if the savegame gets loaded in another server that already has used that "unique" ID for another game
12:15:24  <Brianetta> which could be shown in the corner of the screen
12:15:49  <Brianetta> which ran at one minute per day, or there-abouts
12:16:01  <dihedral> no
12:16:05  <Brianetta> or five minutes per day, I think I suggested
12:16:08  <dihedral> i dont think you understood me correctly
12:16:09  <Brianetta> It was a long time ago
12:16:22  <Brianetta> but you could timetable a train by time, to the nearest 5 minutes
12:16:36  <Brianetta> and that time would be constant across the game
12:16:42  <dihedral> just the timestamp of when openttd started the map
12:17:00  <Maedhros> Brianetta: well, you can basically do that with days now, as long as you know when the timetable starts, no?
12:17:04  <Brianetta> If a train took more than a timetable-day to reach a destination, then the next time should simply be assumed to be the next instance of that time
12:17:16  <Brianetta> Maedhros: You can.  When does the timetable start?
12:17:57  <Brianetta> A clock is easiest, I think.  Especially when you're trying to make a slot to insert one train into a route containing several tens of trains.
12:18:14  <Brianetta> Stopping all trains and restarting the timetable isn't practical
12:18:55  <Brianetta> but if that train won't leave before 6:15, then it'll wait there until the clock says 6:15
12:19:10  <Brianetta> and if it's more than 6 hours late, make it wait for the next 6:15
12:19:20  <Rubidium> maybe some button with "spread evenly"?
12:19:25  <Brianetta> no
12:19:28  <dihedral> lol
12:19:29  <Brianetta> no automatic spreading
12:19:37  <Brianetta> timetables are timetables
12:19:46  <Brianetta> not traffic smoothers
12:19:50  <dihedral> a train needs a certain time 'at least' to get from a to be
12:20:01  <Brianetta> dihedral: That's all that's implemented
12:20:14  <dihedral> just remember the last average of all trains in the shared order
12:20:36  <Brianetta> A timetable should allow you to predictably create a traffic gap
12:20:37  <dihedral> so one can at least see am i entereing a reasonable valo or not
12:20:45  <Brianetta> into which a slow vehicle could be inserted, to schedule
12:20:53  <dihedral> yes, but you dont want to underestimate
12:21:07  <dihedral> and that will happen
12:21:20  <Maedhros> Brianetta: the timetable starts when you tell it to - e.g. 1st of June 1954, and is different for each train
12:21:23  <Brianetta> Maedhros: A good start would be to time existing journeys, so that the player can see how long that vehicle too to make the journey last time
12:21:25  <dihedral> + late trains should let your station rating go down :-P
12:21:37  <Maedhros> Brianetta: yeah, i'm going to try to add that as well
12:21:49  <Brianetta> Maedhros: Would you have to recalculate this each time you tweaked the timings?
12:22:13  <Maedhros> recalculate the start date? yes... how else would it work?
12:22:31  <Brianetta> To be honest, I'm not even sure what resetting the late counter does.  Does it make the current order's travel time become 0?  Does it make the next order start at 0 on arrival?
12:22:53  <Brianetta> Does it remain at 0 until you start the train?  It should...
12:23:10  <Maedhros> yes, it makes the next order start at 0 on arrival
12:23:33  <Brianetta> See, that's not very precise
12:23:41  <Brianetta> You can't know when that train will arrive, exactly
12:24:49  <Brianetta> I want to be able to say, "this train leaves at 5:30.  This is just before the 4:15 from Sundingham is due to arrive, and the platform will be cleared fo rthat train."

12:52:06  <Brianetta> There's that word again
12:52:15  <Brianetta> autopilot doesn't do game resets at the moment
12:53:06  <Phazorx> of cource it does not, but it knows when it happens
12:53:17  <Phazorx> so if a new game is started it writes different file
12:54:42  <Brianetta> No, it doesn't know when it happens
12:55:07  <dihedral> OpenTTDLib could do that
12:55:23  <dihedral> you get the join date of a client
12:55:49  <Phazorx> Brianetta: strange, it reports game start saying it is engagad and stating map conditions
12:56:09  <Brianetta> It does that when you start it
12:56:14  <Brianetta> Most of that info is read from openttd.cfg
12:56:40  <Brianetta> If you load a saved game, it says nothing about map conditions
12:56:44  <Brianetta> because it has no way of knowing
12:57:32  <peter1138> until we add the console commands you need
12:57:51  <Phazorx> Brianetta: that can be used as trigger ebtween newmap/reload

13:02:36  <dihedral> Phazorx: i cannot do any datamining if there aint a constant to referense a single game with
13:02:41  <eekee> There's more KDE software than GNU software on a typical KDE box. Not to deny the fact that the GNU s/w is more essential to a Linux system, but their attempts at insisting on GNU/Linux seems a little arrrogant to me
13:02:44  <Brianetta> Phazorx: I can add it to the wish list
13:03:17  <Phazorx> well resetting can be done per admin requist for time being
13:03:36  <dihedral> Phazorx: i dont mean resetting the data
13:03:55  <dihedral> i mean knowing that game a is really game a and that game b really is game b

13:04:34  <dihedral> then being able to keep track of who created the company and what performance history it had , etc.
13:04:39  <eekee> there's not that many different game going on on any one server. You chould be able to get a reasonable idea from company name
13:05:03  <dihedral> eekee - if a server runs for a week non stop
13:05:09  <dihedral> has a restart date of 2051
13:05:15  <dihedral> stats say in 1935
13:05:20  <dihedral> thats 36.4 hours
13:05:20  <Noldo> eekee: it comes down to the definition of operating system, is it just kernel or kernel + some userland tool that are essential or all the stuff up to the window manager
13:05:27  <dihedral> until the next game starts
13:05:37  <dihedral> you will have 5 different games in one week
13:05:44  <dihedral> from one server!
13:06:10  <dihedral> if there were a $something that was consistent for one of those games
13:06:17  <dihedral> but differed from one game to another
13:06:31  <eekee> Noldo: yeah, it does, & to be level with the Windows & OS X folks I think you'd need to include the desktop in the OS
13:06:38  <Phazorx> consistency of timeline?
13:06:39  <Brianetta> It'd be easiest to get autopilot to close down the dedicated server and start it again
13:06:49  <Brianetta> or issue a new gameitself
13:06:59  <Brianetta> rather than lettinng openttd reach a date and restart itself
13:07:06  <eekee> That's where the KDE or Gnome becomes important, they're KDE or Gnome machines with GNU & Linux in the back-end
13:07:10  <Phazorx> Brianetta: that is basicaly same - admin action
13:07:21  <Brianetta> Phazorx: Except without an admin
13:07:51  <Phazorx> Brianetta: why would it restart by iotself, based on what conditions ?
13:08:09  <Brianetta> If the date reaches the rester_date
13:08:13  <Brianetta> hmm
13:08:16  <Brianetta> restart_date
13:08:17  <Gekko> eekee: IceWM
13:08:23  <Gekko> XFCE
13:08:25  <dihedral> Brianetta: i dont quite follow
13:08:29  <Gekko> Fluxbox
13:08:40  <dihedral> all my games restart once they reach a certain date
13:08:44  <Brianetta> yes
13:08:47  <Brianetta> exactly what I'm saying
13:09:01  <Brianetta> Phazorx asked what conditions lead to it restarting itself
13:09:02  <Phazorx> dihedral: enforcement method
13:09:10  <Phazorx> cirrently it is ottd itself
13:09:21  <dihedral> -i+u yes
13:09:22  <Phazorx> Brianetta: inpmlyes that will be Autiopilot's responsibility
13:09:35  <Brianetta> If you want autopilot to knwo about it, it had better be
13:09:55  <eekee> Gekko: NOT my point! IceWM can't remotely compare with Windows for application integration, nor can any other of the literally thousands of other window managers out there. KDE & Gnome are merely the most developed examples of desktops, XFCE isn't quite in the same league of integratoin & power that Windows offers
13:10:02  <dihedral> Brianetta: you could base it on the seed - roughtly
13:10:06  <dihedral> not 100%
13:10:18  <Brianetta> what seed?
13:10:19  <dihedral> as it could happen that it is the same
13:10:25  <dihedral> command getseed
13:10:42  <Brianetta> Doesn't help you at all if you use the same seed
13:10:46  <dihedral> though loading a savegame will provide the same seed
13:10:52  <Gekko> eekee: Windows come with... notepad
13:10:55  <dihedral> exaclty
13:10:59  <Phazorx> dihedral: loading save game should not restart counter
13:11:03  <Gekko> kde surpasses
13:11:13  <dihedral> true
13:11:20  <Brianetta> Phazorx: Loading a saved game and loading a scenario are the same operation
13:11:31  <dihedral> gan the gameseed be fetched with upd?
13:11:40  <Brianetta> Not sure
13:11:42  <dihedral> shoot
13:12:00  * dihedral asks for everyone to disregard my last question
13:12:19  <peter1138> yes
13:12:19  <Phazorx> is date available to autopilot or openttdlib?
13:12:25  <eekee> Gekko: Windows comes with the ability to copy and paste images or word processing data or WHATEVER between applications that don't even deal with the same formats. That is some HEAVY back-end work, and afaik the only things that even begin to let you do that in unixy operating systems are KDE & Gnome
13:12:29  <dihedral> Phazorx: not yet
13:12:55  <Phazorx> in that case it can not be used for determining different game start temporary
13:13:02  <Phazorx> *sigh*
13:13:19  <dihedral> hence i want a timestamp added :-D
13:13:46  <dihedral> when was the map load
13:13:53  <Phazorx> peter1138, btw brianettsa box, comparing performance with 500 trains before r10000 and now... has gain up to 20% performance but not any more
13:14:08  <eekee> Alright, I'm out. Have fun all
13:14:12  <Phazorx> is the networking part more demanding than pathfinding?
13:14:19  * dihedral waves
13:14:21  <peter1138> what?
13:14:32  <dihedral> Phazorx: lol
13:14:45  <peter1138> your sentence doesn't parse
13:14:46  <Phazorx> hash optimization affected cooper's box much less than it affects single games
13:14:49  <peter1138> and "now" is not a revision
13:14:57  <valhallasw> btw; what's the reason openttd is not using svn?
13:15:11  <peter1138> sf sucks
13:15:12  <Phazorx> now bei9ng current, past hash optimization patch, release
13:15:14  <Gekko> sf is ewww
13:15:24  <peter1138> current is not a revision either
13:15:30  <Gekko> lol
13:15:38  <Gekko> start
13:15:51  <dihedral> Brianetta: would you think a timestamp would make sense?
13:15:54  <Phazorx> peter1138: it doesnt matter which one 10170-10295
13:16:01  <dihedral> for the sake of building statistics
13:16:10  <dihedral> should not be more than a uint32 right?
13:16:42  <dihedral> YMDHis
13:16:47  <Phazorx> my point is, where i saw 100-400% improvement on single player i see 20% on multuplayer
13:17:03  <valhallasw> peter1138: yes, but anything specific in mind?
13:17:22  <peter1138> valhallasw: we have our own perfectly decent hosting. why would we need sf?

13:18:46  <Rubidium> Phazorx: from r10266 trunk has become quite a bit slower (due to a little stress testing of cargopackets, which will be removed)
13:19:19  <dihedral> cargo packets will be removed or the stress testing?
13:19:30  <Rubidium> the stress testing
13:19:32  <peter1138> heh
13:19:50  <Phazorx> peter1138: with RL experience only
13:20:04  <Phazorx> and i can not either debug or profile anything network related on my box
13:20:15  <Phazorx> it segfaults trying to do anything udp related
13:20:33  <Phazorx> if built with debug simblos
13:20:48  <peter1138> so what are you saying, it just "feels" slower?
13:20:55  *** orudgetest [~orudgetes@] has joined #openttd

13:22:29  <dihedral> which tt-forums applet?

13:22:42  <orudge> because OpenTTD newbies would constantly come into #tycoon and annoy people
13:22:44  <orudge> :p
13:22:52  <dihedral> LOL
13:22:56  <Phazorx> 80% as in it consuming 80% CPU rather than close to 100% before
13:23:20  <dihedral> orudge: nice :-)
13:23:31  <orudge> ;)
13:25:53  <peter1138> so it's less and you still complain? :p
13:26:32  <dihedral> peter1138: some people have a bad day if they have nothing to complain about
13:26:39  <Phazorx> i'm poiting out that it it quite different amount of "less" than has been proven by local tests
13:27:08  <Rubidium> Phazorx: and MP was always much slower with YAPF than SP with YAPF because YAPF had to ditch it's caches every game tick
13:27:48  <Phazorx> hmm... i'm not too in-depth with structure of ottd networkign mdoel
13:28:02  <Phazorx> but isnt it based on synchrocity between all clients and server?
13:28:32  <Rubidium> yes, and YAPF wasn't completely desync free, but it should be since around r10300 IIRC
13:29:01  <Rubidium> YAPF without the trashing of it's caches that is
13:29:10  <Phazorx> hmm... so at that point maintaining cache would become network safe?
13:29:23  <Rubidium> it should be
13:29:45  <Phazorx> that cpuld explain mych lower yield of optimization in case of network...

13:35:04  <orudge> dihedral: 120GB or so per month, iirc
13:35:05  * Phazorx has dumb C question
13:35:06  * orudge goes to check
13:35:24  <Phazorx> 'im trying to digest how CHANCE16I works
13:35:34  <dihedral> orudge: you have a good offer or is it funded?
13:35:41  <orudge> We have a good hosting solution
13:35:42  <Phazorx> being as simle as CHANCE16I(a, b, v) ((uint16)(v) <= (uint16) ((65536 * (a)) / (b)))
13:35:53  <orudge> 202GB in the past 30 days
13:35:59  <orudge> 2.21TB in the past year :)
13:36:10  <Phazorx> v is a the essential output in this case ?
13:36:20  <Phazorx> orudge: nice :)
13:36:21  <dihedral> orudge: may i ask what the hosting solution is?
13:36:33  <orudge> A dedicated server colocated in Amsterdam
13:36:34  <Rubidium> Phazorx: no it "returns" a bool
13:36:39  <orudge> advertising and donations cover most of the costs
13:36:55  <dihedral> what is the cost - if you dont mind
13:37:13  <Phazorx> Rubidium: i see (i guess i did not phrase it correctly)
13:37:43  <peter1138> Phazorx: no, it's input...
13:40:12  <dihedral> orudge: 202GB is that web traffic or total traffic
13:40:24  <orudge> total traffic for Gandalf
13:40:25  <orudge> (the server)
13:41:51  <orudge> as for how much it costs, the base cost is around EUR170/month
13:42:13  <orudge> advertising and sponsorship helps cover most of that, though.
13:42:16  <dihedral> base = including all bandwidth?
13:42:20  <orudge> but there's sometimes still a shortfall
13:42:21  <orudge> yes
13:42:48  <dihedral> whats the uplink?
13:42:52  <orudge> 100Mbps
13:43:04  <orudge> could be changed to 1Gbps if need be, but we don't need ;)
13:43:05  <dihedral> nice
13:43:22  <orudge> it's only around 1Mbps bandwidth we use, by the 95th percentile system
13:43:28  <orudge> but that still adds up to a bit
13:44:07  <dihedral> would it save money if you had a mirror of some stuff?
13:44:09  <orudge> Nah
13:44:14  <orudge> not much can be mirrored really
13:44:18  <orudge> everything's in hand, anyway
13:44:21  <orudge> although donations are appreciated
13:44:29  <orudge> but advertising will generally cover the cost
13:44:35  <orudge> what isn't covered is paid for by me/my company
13:44:39  <dihedral> i have nothing to donate - hence i asked about mirroring :-)
13:44:41  <orudge> Heh
13:45:09  <dihedral> as i pay nothing for my colocated server :-)
13:45:14  <orudge> Heh
13:45:15  <dihedral> also 100Mbit no bw limit
13:45:24  <orudge> no bandwidth limit? at all?
13:45:27  <orudge> How did you wangle that one, then?
13:45:28  <dihedral> nope
13:45:34  <orudge> Well, in all, I have some 5 servers scattered across the globe, anyway
13:45:38  <dihedral> we resell to others for 180 euro/month

13:46:19  <orudge> Heh, nice

14:11:10  <dihedral> so it would have to be made opensource or freeware?

14:42:52  <Rubidium> there is no 1:1 comparison with real life

14:43:34  <dihedral> :-P
14:43:34  <stillunknown> I'm trying to figure out how fast a vehicle should go, to move one unit in one tick.
14:43:48  <dihedral> why
14:44:01  <dihedral> that information is still unknown
14:44:04  <dihedral> harhar
14:44:13  <Rubidium> when looking at the width of tracks it would be like 4 meters, when looking at the length of wagons it would be like 50 meters, when looking at houses it would be like 30 meters, when looking at ships it would be like 500 meters, when looking at aircraft 70 meters, when looking at busses (lengthwise) ....
14:45:06  <stillunknown> I'm considering improving the train controller, but i would like to know certain relations.
14:45:16  <peter1138> there are no relations :)
14:45:17  <dihedral> as ther are non
14:45:21  <peter1138> it's all arbitrary
14:45:30  <dihedral> you may look but aint gonna find
14:46:07  <stillunknown> I just want to know what's behind that strange UpdateTrainSpeed function, and how it decides how many moves it should do each tick.

15:00:57  <stillunknown> Rubidium: You would guess lower or higher?
15:01:08  <stillunknown> Because it is possible i missed a factor 2.
15:01:20  <Rubidium> lower
15:01:24  <peter1138> correct, it's not right
15:01:30  <hylje> peter1138: wut?
15:01:45  <Rubidium> rather something like once per 100 >> 8 times per tick
15:02:20  <stillunknown> But spd is in subspeed units.
15:02:33  <stillunknown> The bitshift is to get to normal speed.
15:02:53  <hylje> subspeed!
15:03:20  <Rubidium> stillunknown: no, the amount of game units to move
15:04:36  <stillunknown> You were right, the order is 2^2 for fast trains.
15:05:24  <stillunknown> So speed is game units to move divided by 256?
15:05:34  <stillunknown> Normal speed that is.
15:07:01  <Rubidium> what is "normal speed"?
15:07:15  <Rubidium> just another arbitrary speed unit?

16:43:30  <oxygene_> looks like you are missing a library

16:45:17  <bubersson> so maybe its bad version of ld.exe or something...
16:45:20  <oxygene_> i'm not using windows so i can't help you here
16:45:31  <oxygene_> ld is the linker. it's not its fault
16:45:41  <oxygene_> do you have zlib installed?

16:50:45  <Phazorx> grr... and yapf is still not using cache beyond current tick?
16:51:18  <Rubidium> Phazorx: YAPF does so since around r10300
16:51:59  <Phazorx> Rubidium: so it should be a bit faster compared to 295?
16:52:40  <Rubidium> not necessarily
16:53:20  <Phazorx> hmm... why wouldnt it be faster if it does less work now ?
16:53:37  <Rubidium> did I *ever* say that it does less work?
16:54:07  <Phazorx> i assumed that if it does something less often it would result in less work
16:54:34  <Phazorx> like if you do sometihng once a a year compared to once a day normally a factor is number of days in year.. isnt it ?
16:55:29  <Phazorx> heh
16:55:30  <Rubidium> well, *if* you assume that only the code trash the cache is removed, then it results in less work... but it does cache slightly less information now

16:56:43  *** Tobin [] has quit [Quit: Tobin]
16:56:46  <Phazorx> what i assumed is that it was disregarding tile cache every tick before and it doesnt have to that anymore
16:57:24  <Phazorx> imo maintaining static information rather than rebuilding it every tick shoud result in significatly less amount of work... or there was no point of caching to start with
16:58:39  <Rubidium> Phazorx: the cache was still used for pathfinding of all vehicles during that tick, so it did help
16:59:14  <Rubidium> the "issue" is that with the new non-trashing behaviour *less* information could be cached
16:59:29  <Alanin> lol
16:59:33  <Rubidium> i.e. in worst case the new version is slower than the old one
17:00:05  <Phazorx> so we do it less often but also lost cache efficency

19:26:23  <Bjarni> a 5 way crossing is always bad, but to add the railroad is just... oh well. If the crossing is made correctly, then it shouldn't be a problem, but it's my experience that generally railroad crossings lacks the safety build into the Scandinavian ones (most likely due to cost. They cost a fortune here)
19:26:43  <nairan> not only scandinavia
19:27:43  *** KritiK [] has joined #openttd
19:28:13  <Bjarni> yeah, crossings are expensive, but I'm pretty sure that you can can build a a crossing in USA for less than you can in Scandinavia, basically due to less safety
19:29:35  <Smoovious> what's different about Scandanavian ones?
19:29:46  <Smoovious> -a+i
19:31:04  <Prof_Frink> LCs are basically safe, barring: a) breakdowns and b)morons
19:31:23  <Prof_Frink> And there's not much you can do about either
19:31:49  <Bjarni> they activate when the train reaches a certain location. The crossing then close the barriers and stuff, checks that everything works correctly (that's a whole lot of sensors) and then report back to the train if something is wrong. The train will then be told in time to stop in front of the road in case of a failure
19:32:24  <Smoovious> could put a bunch of big spikes o n the  front of all engines, so they look like their sole purpose on the track is to kill someone... like, they're gunning for you
19:32:38  <Bjarni> failures can be anything from failure to activate to broken lightbulbs, jammed barriers or stuck bells
19:33:13  <Prof_Frink> Bjarni: What's really needed is a system to check the track's clear
19:33:28  <Bjarni> ssh
19:33:38  <Bjarni> don't give the safety guys any new ideas
19:33:48  <Prof_Frink> 'cause if someone breaks down between the barriers, they'd be forked
19:33:49  <Bjarni> they are expensive enough as it is
19:33:51  <Smoovious> catapult launchers to fling anything sitting on the crossing, away, right before t he train gets  there
19:34:08  <Prof_Frink> And then there's morons who dodge round the barriers
19:34:28  <Prof_Frink> Or, to give them their full title
19:34:38  <Prof_Frink> Darwin Award Volunteers
19:34:40  <Smoovious> yeah, well, they deserve to get hit imho... take em out of the gene pool
19:35:10  <Bjarni> if anything is stuck on the tracks due to a breakdown, the trains can usually stop in time as it will be visible in decent time. Most crossings are at 75 km/h or 100 km/h lines
19:35:11  <Maedhros> yes, but the passengers of the train that hits them don't deserve to die...
19:35:13  <Prof_Frink> It's a shame though
19:35:34  <Bjarni> then again once in a while there is a curve or poor visibility and then... oh well
19:35:36  <Prof_Frink> Tends to break the train, and cause the driver to have a mental breakdown
19:36:13  <Smoovious> deaths on trains, from hitting a road vehicle, are extremely rare... most of the time, passengers don't even realize it until someone is asking for witness statements
19:36:18  <Prof_Frink> What's needed is a Big Red Button to hit if you break down
19:36:25  <Smoovious> hell, a  city bus I was on hit  a car... didn't even feel i t
19:36:37  <Bjarni> Japan has that big red button (but I think it's yellow)
19:36:58  <Maedhros> <- a few miles away from me
19:37:02  <Prof_Frink> Obviously, with some form of anti-tamper to stop drunken studens causing chaos
19:38:05  <Bjarni> Maedhros: sounds bad for the HST... it fails to clear the track as intended
19:38:23  <Bjarni> trains really has devices to clear the track for whatever they hit
