00:00:22  *** mikl [] has quit [Quit: Connection reset by Peer Gynt]
00:07:35  <Sacro> michi_cc: i thought that said there :(
00:14:48  <fjb> michi_cc: I still have a case where a train locked itself in a station with v.4.2. The train doesn't find a free path path out of the station. After some time waiting it decides to reverse. But it forgets to clear the reserved part of the platform behind it (because it didn't leave that paltform). Not it has the reserved platform tiles in front of it and is locked.
00:17:18  <fjb> Here is a picture showing it:
00:20:13  <Gonozal_VIII> trains should check if there's a path behind them before reversing...
00:25:58  <fjb> Yes, that would help. The problem here is that the platform doesn't get released tile by tile, it gets released as a whole when the train left the platform. But it never leaves it.
00:26:35  <Gonozal_VIII> no path, no reversing, no problem :-)
00:27:43  <fjb> Cleaning up reserved path is not bugfree yet. That should be fixed.

00:42:51  <Eddi|zuHause3> <Gonozal_VIII> no path, no reversing, no problem :-) <- you are missing the problem
00:43:26  <Gonozal_VIII> i know the problem... station is always one piece
00:43:26  <Eddi|zuHause3> the train does not find a path because it hits its previously reserved, now invalid, path
00:44:26  <ln-> ah, 91.8% of 4x03
00:45:08  <Eddi|zuHause3> ln-: why are you always 3 days late?
00:47:31  <ln-> this time didn't provide the thing at all.  the previous times i only remembered a bit late.
00:50:23  *** Jortuny [] has joined #openttd
00:53:14  <ln-> had to get it from torrent this time, never before have i needed to revert to such complicated methods.
00:53:39  <Gonozal_VIII> since when is a torrent complicated?
00:55:03  <ln-> it's more complicated than saving a file to disk through firefox.
00:55:17  <Gonozal_VIII> hmm no
00:55:29  <glx> it's easy with µtorrent
00:55:33  <Gonozal_VIII> yep
00:55:58  <Gonozal_VIII> open the .torrent file, wait until finished... nothing more
00:57:08  <ln-> the "wait until finished" part is also complicated, as it takes many hours.
00:57:22  <Gonozal_VIII> many hours?
00:57:31  <ln-> many hours.
00:57:32  <Gonozal_VIII> how big exactly are those episodes?
00:57:33  <glx> depends on file size and source count
00:57:44  *** UFO64-alt [] has joined #openttd
00:57:44  <ln-> this one was like 120MB.
00:57:48  <Gonozal_VIII> i usually download 350mb episodes
00:57:50  <glx> and you need to open ports
00:57:53  <Gonozal_VIII> takes about 20 minutes
00:58:24  <ln-> and i don't really have open ports.
00:58:46  <glx> torrent without at least an open port is slow
00:58:53  <glx> it can even not finish
00:58:58  <ln-> i usually download 350mb episodes through http, and it takes ~10 mins.
00:59:16  <Gonozal_VIII> would be faster but i only have 3mbit
00:59:42  <ln-> glx: i've noticed that.. actually i'm surprised i was actually able to get the file tonight and not next week.

01:10:37  <fjb> Hm, will YAPP become stable before 0.6.0?
01:10:59  <Gonozal_VIII> what has the one to do with the other?
01:11:06  <Belugas> even if he is, he's not going ot be in 0.6
01:12:37  <fjb> It needs more testing?
01:13:00  <Gonozal_VIII> no big stuff gets in right before a release
01:13:18  * Sacro sniggers
01:13:37  <Gonozal_VIII> hmmm?
01:16:05  <fjb> THE ECS coal mines are stupid, one train arriving late and the output drops from 500 tons to 30 in no time. But it needs ages (and a statue) to get back up near that level again.
01:16:57  *** Wezz6400 [] has quit [Quit: Zzz]
01:17:02  <Gonozal_VIII> they are designed for patch, high transported% is easier to reach there
01:18:06  <ln-> what's the opposite of a flashback?
01:18:23  <Sacro> darkforward?
01:18:30  <Gonozal_VIII> a vision?
01:18:36  <fjb> Not disigned only for the patch. He smooth output change is only working in OpenTTD yet.
01:21:13  *** Frostregen [] has quit [Quit: und weg]
01:24:31  *** Frostregen [] has joined #openttd
01:28:28  <DaleStan> So, designed for Patch, where the things that cause breakage don't happen.
01:28:37  <DaleStan> :p
01:29:14  <Gonozal_VIII> and again in english please?
01:30:25  <fjb> No jams in patch? Sounds boring. :-P

01:32:59  *** KritiK [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:34:24  <fjb> DaleStan: Are you the main patch develeoper now?
01:35:19  <DaleStan> It seems that way. JGR's good for foisting random "impossible" features on us, though.
01:35:40  <DaleStan> I keep hoping Patchman will come back from wherever he went.
01:35:57  *** Eddi|zuHause2 [] has joined #openttd
01:36:41  <fjb> Who is JGR?
01:38:12  <Belugas> another ttdpatch dev
01:38:24  <Belugas> the newest recruit, if i'm not mistaken
01:38:42  * Belugas search "recruit" in his dictionnary
01:38:58  <fjb> I guess some features would cause the rewrite of the whole game. It is harder for a patch to push some limits than for a project like OpenTTD where you have the whole source and can change almost anything.
01:39:21  <Belugas> recruit is fine :)
01:39:36  <SmatZ> :-)
01:39:43  <Belugas> fjb, i would not say that...
01:39:49  <fjb> :-) My English is so bad, I wouldn't notice any difference.
01:39:59  <Belugas> both sides have their difficulties
01:40:35  <Belugas> for sure, it is easier for OTTD to do some massive changes. But it easier for us too to get some pretty nasty bugs
01:40:58  <fjb> Yes, but when you have the source you can just look into it and can change things using a high level language. Ofcourse you have to be backward compatible and things.
01:41:02  <Belugas> ttdp may have bugs too, but somehow, i think they are not as severe as some of ours
01:41:54  * SmatZ hopes there are not any 'severe' bugs in beta4
01:42:05  * Belugas hopes too
01:42:06  *** llugo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:42:17  <Belugas> fjb, the sources are immense
01:42:21  *** Eddi|zuHause3 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:42:21  <fjb> ttdp has astonishing few bugs, considering that it is heavy assembler hacking in something that you don't have a comented source of.
01:42:21  <Belugas> it is easy to get lost
01:42:42  <DaleStan> Most of ours are easily reproducible and fixable. Like when I confuse "call [esp]" and "call esp"
01:43:11  *** Jortuny [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
01:43:18  <fjb> Yes, it is. But assembler scares my more than C++. And I think even C++ is not the best language to write bugfree code.
01:43:23  <Sacro> grr... null pointers
01:46:00  <Belugas> no language is garanteed to write bugfree code...
01:46:17  <Belugas> helll. some wonderfull bugs i've done in delphi...
01:46:39  * ln- writes 100% bugfree code with C++.
01:46:53  <DaleStan> <fjb> something that you don't have a comented source of. <-- We do have two somewhat-commented "sources"; the DOS and Windows IDA databases. The DOS one is especially good at documenting the calling conventions.
01:47:14  <Gonozal_VIII> i can write hello world bugfree :-)
01:47:24  <fjb> You can have bugs in every project, but some languages help you to make fewer bugs.
01:48:48  <fjb> DaleStan: So the patch hooks into the os calls?
01:50:17  *** lugo [] has joined #openttd
01:51:12  <DaleStan> No, the conventions for things like RefreshRectangle, which wants X1,X2,Y1,Y2 in ax,bx,dx,bp. Or the return values for GetLandscapeInfo. (Which fills [e]si, dh, dl and, di from ax and cx, IIRC)
01:52:06  <Sacro> Gonozal_VIII: go on then
01:52:30  <DaleStan> $ hello --license
01:52:31  <fjb> Ah, ok. The os calls are reference points for understanding the code inbetween?
01:52:35  <Gonozal_VIII> i already did
01:52:45  <Gonozal_VIII> i can do it again...
01:52:49  <Gonozal_VIII> hello world bugfree
01:52:53  <Gonozal_VIII> see? :-)
01:53:19  <DaleStan> The conventions of the TTD functions. I think the OS calls are mostly untouched, except that win2k fixes the DirectX calls.
01:53:54  *** Brianetta [] has quit [Quit: TschÌß]
01:54:22  <fjb> Still sounds far more difficult than to look at a huge C++ source.
01:55:47  <Belugas> depnds of your capacity of understanding and abstraction of the concept...
01:56:52  <fjb> Maybe. I have less problems with assembler than with machine code. And I even have less problems with a higher level language than with assembler.
01:57:36  <DaleStan> But some of the games we can play with register conventions get really quite nice. My understanding is that if you have a call stack ten functions deep that all deal with the same vehicle in C or C++, that vehicle pointer will appear on the stack once for each function. In Patch, it won't be on the stack at all; it'll be in ESI instead.
01:58:16  <SmatZ> :-)
01:59:42  <SmatZ> one can create his own internal ABI if he needs so
01:59:43  <fjb> A good compiler will keep the pointer in a register then.
02:02:07  <DaleStan> But you can't declare that type of calling convention (at least with MSVC), and you have to use some convention so you know that the calls in file1.obj will fill the registers properly for the functions in file2.obj.
02:04:59  <fjb> You don't have to declare it. The compiler does it for you, if it is smart. the compiler sees the whole source, if it is devided into files or not. A smart compiler can have it's own custom conventions that work across file borders.
02:05:42  <SmatZ> compiler sees only the file(s) it is compiling
02:06:04  <SmatZ> for each object file, it starts from scratch
02:06:14  <DaleStan> Else, you'd have to recompile all objects because you changed one source file, and that obviously doesn't happen/
02:06:26  <fjb> That depends on the compiler.
02:07:02  *** llugo [] has joined #openttd
02:07:21  <SmatZ> maybe you could compile whole OTTD in 1 compile run...
02:08:57  <fjb> Or the compiler could remeber his optimized calling conventions between diffenrent files.
02:09:26  <DaleStan> What happens when file1.obj is compiled, and then file2.cpp is changed so that a different convention is preferable?
02:11:11  <fjb> You get nonoptimal code. But you probably will have some debugging code anyway while you are developing. You can recompile the whole project for a realease and get optimized code.
02:11:54  <DaleStan> And what happens when the compiler can't find file1.obj, because it's called file1.o, or because it's yet to be created by some other tool, like NASM?
02:12:38  *** lugo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:13:11  <fjb> Then it takes the nonoptimal default convention. For the release all the files have to be there.  Else some parts of the program would be missing.
02:15:42  <DaleStan> And what happens when it compiles file1.o and file2.o (with whatever custom convention happens to be best) and then NASM generates file3.o, which assumes some earlier custom convention, and then the linker throws the whole mess together. How does the compiler know that the func1 and func3 are called by assembly code, while func2 is not?
02:16:39  <DaleStan> After all, the compiler doesn't see the assembly code.
02:17:10  <fjb> You have to tell the compiler that a function can not be optimized because it relies on some conventions out of it's scope.
02:17:15  <DaleStan> Only the assembler sees the assembly code, so the compiler can't make decisions based on what it might or might not contain.
02:19:36  <DaleStan> So I have to modify the C header to use the function in assembly? This is a feature? (And you still haven't named this hypothetical compiler that can do this magic within the bounds of the standard makefile, which compiles one file at a time, without giving the compiler any information as to what other files might or might not be related.)
02:19:41  <fjb> That assembler code is declared to be external code. So the compiler doesn't optimize that calls.
02:20:01  <DaleStan> No, the calls from assembler into C.
02:20:58  <glx> fjb: you should take a look at ttdpatch source ;)
02:21:08  <fjb> There are not only C compilers in the world. I have to admit that most C compilers didn't advance that much from the early 70s.
02:21:53  <fjb> Only compiling one file after the other limits the possibilities for optimization very much.
02:22:29  <fjb> is that source availlable?
02:22:31  <DaleStan> And every single makefile in existence does exactly that.
02:22:40  <DaleStan> svn://
02:23:22  <fjb> It does that only in the world of C compilers.
02:23:55  <DaleStan> So, what language are you thinking of where it doesn't?
02:24:51  <SmatZ> that's the advantage of object files
02:25:06  <fjb> One is Eiffel. Most ML dialects are also more advanced.
02:25:12  <SmatZ> every object file can come from different compiler (even assembler) and be linked together by a linker
02:25:19  <DaleStan> And why is a language that OpenTTD and TTDPatch are neither using nor considering using relevant?
02:26:04  <DaleStan> And what benefit does having multiple source files provide if every object depends on every source file?
02:26:14  <fjb> Because a C compiler can adopt that behavior. And I'm not sure if really no C compiler does an optimisation over the whole sorce.
02:27:10  <fjb> The benefit is that you can handle the source better when it is in small files than it would be in one big file.
02:27:32  <DaleStan> Over whole file, sure. But it can't possibly do it over the whole source unless you tell it what constitutes the whole source.
02:27:52  <glx> having many files is also good to reduce compile time
02:28:18  <DaleStan> But if every object depends on every source file, does that still apply?
02:28:37  <glx> I don't want to recompile everything after changing a line in one file
02:29:17  <glx> and fjb suggestion totally breaks that
02:30:22  <fjb> As I said you don't have to compile the whole source while developing. You only do that for a release.
02:30:46  <SmatZ> I was thinking about this a few days ago...
02:30:59  <SmatZ> maybe it would have some benefit
02:31:13  <fjb> That is usual with many modern compilers for modern languages.
02:31:15  <SmatZ> like KDE, you can compile whole packages in one run
02:32:09  <fjb> C was developed in the early 70s. But coputers are smarter today.
02:32:47  <fjb> You have far more RAm and computing power today to do the optimisations.
02:33:28  <SmatZ> yes, that's why we have -O3 -ftree-ssa -ftree-loop-linear -fzomg-fast switches :)
02:33:37  *** Gonozal_VIII [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:33:38  <fjb> You compile unoptimized codes in small parts while developing. And then you do a compile run over the whole project for release.
02:33:55  <fjb> :-)
02:34:17  *** Axamentia [] has quit [Quit: Triplets, More triplets and palm muting...]
02:34:44  <SmatZ> fjb: do you want to try to do this for openttd?
02:34:55  <SmatZ> maybe it wouldn't be hard
02:34:56  <fjb> But most people seam to only know C or C++, maybe some java.
02:35:53  <fjb> Do what for OpenTTD? Finding a C++ compiler that does that optimisations I was talking about?
02:36:09  <SmatZ> compile whole project at once
02:36:14  <SmatZ> so it can be better optimised
02:36:30  <SmatZ> with -fwhole-program
02:37:30  <SmatZ> probably makefile changes, path changes...
02:39:14  <fjb> Hm, I can look at it. Didn't work with makefiles for a long time.
02:40:13  *** De_Ghost [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:41:44  *** De_Ghost [] has joined #openttd
02:42:02  <fjb> Which compiler does support that option? GCC? Which version?
02:42:30  <SmatZ> I am running gcc 4.2.3
02:43:40  <SmatZ> probably gcc 4.x supports it
02:43:44  <SmatZ> but it is not needed
02:43:53  <fjb> Oh, I'm still having 3.4.6
02:43:55  <SmatZ> if it compiles everything in one run, it is fine :)
02:46:06  <fjb> GCC is availlable for most platforms. That would be an advantage.
02:47:57  <fjb> SmatZ: Have you looked at ?
02:48:10  <fjb> Looks interesting what they are doing.
02:48:20  <SmatZ> yeah, I am at #llvm :)
02:48:51  <SmatZ> but only listening ;)
02:49:40  <fjb> Oh. :-)
03:02:47  <fjb> The --combine option would also be important beside the -fwhole-program option.
03:07:30  *** SmatZ [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
03:07:36  <fjb> The ttdp sources look a bit scaring. C++ is easier to read.
03:08:46  <DaleStan> Just don't get too worried when you see "jmp near $" or "call near $". We really did mean to type that.
03:09:51  <fjb> I guess you know what you are doing.
03:10:57  *** ThePizzaKing [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:11:21  <DaleStan> Those instructions never get executed. The magic of self-modifying code.
03:12:08  <glx> they are just placeholders for something else :)
03:12:39  <DaleStan> We just need a five-byte placeholder where the first byte is E8 or E9, and those two instructions are the easiest way to generate that.
03:14:21  *** UFO64-alt [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
03:15:10  <fjb> Now I know why nfo looks so odd and has self modifying code. :-)
03:17:45  <DaleStan> I keep meaning to adjust the system so those instructions call or jmp to the "code" at address 0 (which will save space in the patching code) but I haven't done that yet.
03:22:01  <fjb> I guess you have more important things to do.

10:39:49  <peter1138> Why? :p
10:40:40  <debian__> How do I make money?
10:40:49  <keyweed_> sell drugs.
10:40:54  <Digitalfox> beta 4 just released yesterday, give it time to bug reports ;)
10:41:47  <debian__> I'm using beta 4, I'm only loosing money...
10:42:03  <Yexo> are you sure you aren't using transfer?
10:42:03  * Digitalfox want's RC1 has soon has possible, i love that magic patch :0
10:42:07  <debian__> Where should I transport stuff?
10:42:30  <Yexo> transporting coal from a coal mine to a powerplant is a good start
10:42:44  <debian__> Where is my powerplant?
10:43:11  <Yexo> There are multiple on the map, use the minimap to find them
10:43:26  <debian__> It is no road/railroad to it
10:43:28  <Yexo>
10:43:33  <Yexo> that's a powerplant
10:43:41  <Yexo> And you have to build the rail yourself ;)
10:43:46  <Yexo> that's kinda the purpose of the game
10:44:09  <Yexo> See
10:46:03  <debian__> So I only build roads?
10:47:22  *** DJ-Nekkid [] has joined #openttd

10:52:54  *** Diabolic-Angel [] has joined #openttd
10:52:59  <Yexo> Probably because you're playing with ai opponents which are building railroads
10:53:08  <Yexo> You can disable them in the patch settings

11:03:42  <Yexo_> The ai can't use your railroads
11:03:55  <Yexo_> What he can do however, is building in an area you planned to build
11:04:18  <Yexo_> About the point of this game: you can play it any way you like.
11:04:33  <Yexo_> Some people like to play with only road vehicles
11:04:52  <Yexo_> other people like to build massive rail networks with hundreds of trains
11:05:07  *** Yexo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:05:36  <debian__> The stupid train wont load cargo
11:05:53  <debian__> ït goes back and fort from oil and powerplant
11:06:25  <Noldo> oil doesn't goto the power plant
11:06:36  <debian__> Seriously?
11:06:45  <debian__> Where does it go?
11:07:00  <Yexo_> oil goes to a refinery
11:07:11  <Yexo_> click on the industry to see which cargo's it accepts
11:08:17  *** Digitalfox [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:11:06  <debian__> The trainstation can store stuff?
11:11:17  <Yexo_> sort of
11:11:32  <Yexo_> all cargo generated by industries is delivered to a nearby station
11:11:44  <Yexo_> but some is lost if you don't transport it in time

11:18:29  <Gekz> lol
11:18:34  <Gekz> or vice versa
11:18:40  <Yexo_> There can only be one train at the same time within one signal block
11:18:58  <debian__> Oh
11:19:00  <Yexo_> diesel depot with elektric rails isn't a problem :)

11:38:21  <fjb> Hello
11:38:29  <Yexo_> that's also possible
11:38:39  <Yexo_> L and R don't have any particluar direction
11:38:41  <peter1138> but that's not LLRR RRLL any more...
11:39:02  <demaker> is it best to have different kind of transport or is it best to stick to airplanes etc?
11:39:04  <Yexo_> it's only that every L-lane is going in the same direction, and opposite to any R-lane
11:39:25  <Yexo_> demaker: whatever makes you have the most fun of your game :)
11:40:05  <demaker> hehe okay.. i just love this game.. played it 10 years ago and startet yesterday hehe

15:08:24  <DJ-Nekkid>
15:09:47  <peter1138> Even 'shift/switch main line' means nothing to me, so I doubt it can mean anything to a newbie...
15:09:51  <SmatZ> DJ-Nekkid: why is it a 2-way exit presignal?
15:10:15  <peter1138> SmatZ, because the openttdcoop people like to abuse signals for other purposes...
15:10:22  <DJ-Nekkid> SmatZ: because it wont work without :)
15:10:30  <SmatZ> when train reverses because it has to wait for a long time, it blocks the ML
15:11:08  <SmatZ> peter1138: I have  to say I like it ;-) but sometimes, I don't understand that overuse
15:11:09  <DJ-Nekkid> the trains will only enter the 2nd ML if it's free, if it's a 1way it will go to the combo and stay until it's free...
15:12:14  <DJ-Nekkid> and peter1138; i were makeing the screenshot when u asked :)
15:12:25  <DJ-Nekkid> *making*
15:12:30  <Yexo> DJ-Nekkid: are you sure you didn't make a few mistakes there?
15:12:57  <DJ-Nekkid> Yexo: not 100%, but i made aprox 100 of thoose last coop-game, and they worked
15:13:20  <SmatZ> well, I played that game for a while, and this was the place where it was blocked
15:13:50  <DJ-Nekkid> well, it is build according to mark's example...
15:14:00  <Yexo>
15:14:03  <Yexo> that looks more like it
15:14:35  <Yexo> the signal before exit 1way/combo 2way has to be a presignal
15:14:47  <DJ-Nekkid> nope
15:15:12  <DJ-Nekkid> because:
15:15:13  <Gonozal_VIII> no need for a penalty, it's longer anyways
15:15:49  <Gonozal_VIII> other version is better
15:16:00  <DJ-Nekkid> Gonozal_VIII: mine?
15:16:09  <Gonozal_VIII> yes
15:16:14  <peter1138> It's so ugly :o
15:16:22  <Gonozal_VIII> yep, ugly^^
15:16:29  <Gonozal_VIII> but looks like it could work
15:16:37  <DJ-Nekkid> Yexo: if the 2nd ml is not free, and the exit is not free (because the trains are closely packed) it's like haveing a 3 tile signalblock
15:17:20  <Gonozal_VIII> longer signalblocks are very bad
15:17:23  <Yexo> yes, but if there are both not free then it *is* desired behaviour to wait for the first one to become free, isn't it?
15:17:28  <Gonozal_VIII> jams everything
15:18:17  <Gonozal_VIII> trains should never stop
15:18:27  <Gonozal_VIII> so presignal entry bad
15:18:34  <DJ-Nekkid> Gonozal_VIII: i agree...
15:18:42  <peter1138> And this is why I don't play openttdcoop. It's so tedious.
15:18:56  <DJ-Nekkid> peter1138: it's actually fun...

15:20:06  <DJ-Nekkid> sure!
15:20:25  <SmatZ> yeah, without terraforming :)
15:20:36  <Gonozal_VIII> i try to combine that :-) lines where trains never have to stop or slow down but that still look good
15:20:43  * SmatZ likes no-terraforming maps with 1000+ trains ;)

15:21:02  <fjb> Without isn't always possible, but with as few terraforming as possible.
15:21:48  <fjb> 1024x1024 map is nice in multiplayer, but I feel lost on it in a single player game.
15:21:53  <SmatZ> :)
15:22:20  <Yexo> I normally build them like this
15:22:21  <Yexo>
15:22:35  <SmatZ> for how long trains?
15:22:46  <SmatZ> TL3?
15:22:47  <Yexo> not measured this time :)
15:22:51  <Yexo> tl 3 indeed
15:23:02  <fjb> SmatZ: I looked at the makefiles fpr OpenTTD, but I don't know enough about automake etc. to make new makefiles for OpenTTD to compile it all at once.
15:23:17  <Yexo> just type ./configure
15:23:26  <SmatZ> fjb: neither me :(
15:24:18  <fjb> You need at least two options for gcc to make it work. And it may have sideeffects on varaible and function scope.
15:26:04  <peter1138> Why would you want to compile it all at once?
15:26:27  <fjb> To get an far more optimized executable.
15:27:10  <fjb> Optimisation is local to a single input file now. It would be global to the whole OpenTTD source then.
15:27:15  <peter1138> Right...
15:27:50  <Yexo> you can try cat *.h *.cpp > gcc :)
15:28:03  <Yexo> that should be | g++
15:28:23  <SmatZ> you have to -I correct directories
15:29:11  <fjb> Or use some smarter make replacement.
15:29:23  <Eddi|zuHause2> | grep -v '#include "'
15:29:27  <Noldo> fjb: what on earth are you talking about?
15:29:41  *** Morloth [] has joined #openttd
15:29:52  <Morloth> Hi everyone! :)_
15:30:45  *** yorick [] has joined #openttd
15:31:32  <fjb> Noldo: the current source is compiled one source file at a time. Optimisation is local to that file. gcc has a global optimizer option where the optimisation is global to the whole code base. But it has to be called with all source files as arguments at once.
15:31:42  <fjb> Hi Morloth
15:31:56  <Noldo> aha
15:37:28  <Morloth> Does someone have time to review & commit my patch for NoAI @, please?
15:37:53  <glx> Morloth: split it in many parts (it's way too big)
15:37:58  <Morloth> I'd like to develop NoAI furder but I don't want to create patches which depend upon patches; Things get messy :)
15:38:30  <glx> and I don't like your change for GetCargoProduction and GetCargoAcceptance
15:38:51  <glx> better add functions to just tell if it accepts or produces
15:38:51  *** XeryusTC [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
15:39:07  <glx> and keep the GetCargo* as they are
15:39:08  <Morloth> glx: But the old methods didn't gave any sensable information
15:39:41  *** UFO64 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
15:39:50  <glx> maybe for you, but some AI writer may want to know the exact amount
15:40:31  <Morloth> glx: Hmmz... Perhaps you're right, but I don't see the sense in the numbers it returned
15:40:46  *** Maedhros [] has joined #openttd
15:40:57  <glx> it is the numbers you can see when you use the query tile tool
15:41:55  <Morloth> But what does an acceptance of 24 mean as to an acceptance of 16 or 2?
15:42:08  <Morloth> Thought it was kinda dodgy, those functions
15:42:29  <Morloth> But I'll rewrite it one I get home tonight and create a new patch :)
15:43:23  <Morloth> Would be good to see NoAI back on track again
15:45:14  <glx> higher acceptance means your station has less chance to stop accepting stuff when the town decides to replace/remove buildings
15:45:57  <Morloth> But you'd recommend I create 2 separate patches? 1) Make methods static. 2) The added functions ?
15:46:53  <glx> it's always better to do small patches
15:47:13  <Morloth> I'll keep that in mind :)
15:47:29  <glx> or at least 1 patch for 1 change
15:47:44  *** raimar2 [] has joined #openttd
15:47:56  <Gonozal_VIII> yes because devs are lazy people and don't want to read more than 10 lines at once

15:48:22  <Morloth> glx: I kinda got over excited I guess and coded away at NoAI the last couple of days :)
15:48:34  <glx> Gonozal_VIII: not only, it's easier to understand 1 change than 10 when you read a diff
15:48:46  <Gonozal_VIII> i know, i know ;-)

16:10:58  *** Tefad [] has quit [Quit: IS IT CAN BE HARDWARE REMIX TIME NAO? YES! YES IT IS.]
16:11:37  <NukeBuster> there was a discussion about that in the suggestions forum
16:12:23  <NukeBuster> This got into trunk quite recently, though it have two disadvantages - in game you don't see whether there is some password or not (you have to look into the config file to check for that)
16:12:24  <NukeBuster> Second, it is stored in plaintext in config file. If you do not realize that and send config file to someone (like with some bug report to the bugtracker) ... oops, your password just became public.
16:12:29  <NukeBuster> Oops..
16:12:40  <NukeBuster> (that was posted by Bilbo)
16:13:15  <NukeBuster>
16:15:00  <glx> NukeBuster: usually the .cfg is not needed for bug reports (as all important settings are in the .sav)
16:15:30  <NukeBuster> ok
16:16:08  <glx> but we may ask for it, or at least some specific settings

17:26:24  <Gonozal_VIII> yay queen
17:26:31  <Eddi|zuHause2> michi_cc: have you considered a feature of 'real' PBS? in order to reserve a path, every switch leading to this path from 'outside' must be secured, otherwise no path can be locked (= speed limit 40km/h), this prevents crashing trains from the side ('Flankenfahrt')
17:27:50  <Eddi|zuHause2> 'secured' means either the next switch is in a position not leading to this path, or a derailment device is installed
17:28:51  <Gonozal_VIII> the switches don't switch...
17:29:13  <LordAzamath> pain is so close to pleasure.. But that's completely unrealted to current topic ^^
17:29:23  <Sacro> <- hahhaha
17:29:27  <Eddi|zuHause2> no, but a train without reserved path cannot take that switch even if it wants to
17:29:45  <Sacro> Eddi|zuHause2: catch point?
17:30:05  <peter1138> 'real' PBS? heh
17:30:16  <Sacro> peter1138: yes
17:30:19  <Sacro> though i want ABS :(
17:30:23  <LordAzamath> tt-forums has another spammer..
17:30:25  <Eddi|zuHause2> Sacro: you can e.g. safely force a train through a signal without path
17:30:25  <Sacro> but i fear that'd be hard to implement
17:30:43  <Sacro> Eddi|zuHause2: actually, IRL it is up to the signalman to make sure all points are locked
17:30:52  <LordAzamath> I tried to report post, but it was already reported :D
17:31:28  <Eddi|zuHause2> Sacro: german signal control stations have devices that ensure these lockings, otherwise the signal cannot be turned green
17:31:48  <Eddi|zuHause2> signals have an 'override' for that, but it's not a green light, but a white light
17:31:52  <peter1138> How does this relate to PBS?
17:32:56  *** Morloth [] has joined #openttd
17:33:45  <Eddi|zuHause2> like i said, it provides more safety in case someone is messing around...
17:34:10  <Sacro> Eddi|zuHause2: yes, but a signalman can give permission for a train to pass a red

17:35:11  *** Maedhros [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
17:36:34  <Eddi|zuHause2> yes, that is like the 'ignore signal' switch in the game
17:36:41  <peter1138> So...
17:36:58  <peter1138> You should manually ensure it's safe if you're going to fiddle with that...
17:37:06  <Eddi|zuHause2> not 'so'... i was just throwing this into the discussion
17:37:25  <Eddi|zuHause2> but it's going the wrong way ;)
17:38:26  <Sacro> Eddi|zuHause2: yes, same concept
17:38:34  <Sacro> you have to make sure the way is clear
17:38:47  <Sacro> the ability to lock stes of points in a certain drection would be nice
17:38:59  <Sacro> as would having choseable crossover/single slip/double slip
17:39:18  *** dih_ [] has joined #openttd
17:39:30  <Eddi|zuHause2> anyway, in all these special cases which circumvent a locked path, speed limit is 40km/h
17:40:31  <Eddi|zuHause2> and sometimes, they tell the train driver to "drive on sight" [e.g. he has to stop behind a train already waiting in the next block]

18:25:40  <Yexo> debian__, you don't get interest.
18:26:06  *** peter1138 [] has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
18:26:20  <Eddi|zuHause2> nobody gets interest from having money
18:26:29  <Yexo> and you can't move (in the sense of teleport) trains within a station
18:26:29  <Eddi|zuHause2> interest comes from investing money

18:28:14  <debian__> Eddi|zuHause2: I get instres in my bank
18:28:36  <Eddi|zuHause2> debian__: yes, because you lend your money to the bank, not because you have the money
18:29:04  <Eddi|zuHause2> that is the easiest form of investment
18:29:09  <Eddi|zuHause2> also gives the least interest
18:29:09  <debian__> How much money should I have in 1980?
18:29:22  <Prof_Frink> Eddi|zuHause2: But that involves two keys, whereas <wiggles mouse> means your fingers don't leave the home row

21:56:57  <Belugas> debian__, your question about the lenght of a conversion project is related to the size of the original binary
21:57:09  <Belugas> and of course, your skill levell
21:57:14  <Gonozal_VIII> isn't there other stuff that happens based on ticks too?
21:57:19  <Gonozal_VIII> in towns..
21:57:24  <ln-> Belugas: and if one has to ask, the skill level is zero.
21:57:56  <Belugas> not to me to judge ;)

21:58:15  <debian__> Ok
21:58:29  <debian__> But is every game beeing open-sourced?
21:58:44  <ln-> of course not.

22:06:29  <Gonozal_VIII> very useful^^
22:07:16  <Gonozal_VIII> i found some episodes of the first season in german and/or english dub
22:07:52  *** NukeBuster [] has joined #openttd
22:08:22  <Gonozal_VIII> but that was on youtube... low quality and split up in 3-4 parts per episode
22:08:32  <Eddi|zuHause2> german dub of animes is often cut
22:08:50  <Eddi|zuHause2> because they are usually shown in daytime program
22:09:11  <Gonozal_VIII> no blood or nakedness there anyways...
22:10:26  <Eddi|zuHause2> also often, "strong language" is reduced in the dub
22:11:15  <Eddi|zuHause2> i already fear what they are going to do to the poor dexter...
22:12:10  <ln-> i'm assuming you are not talking about Darkly Dreaming Dexter?
22:12:49  <Eddi|zuHause2> sure i am
22:13:30  <ln-> the crime scene investigator?
22:13:38  <Eddi|zuHause2> yes, that one
22:14:29  <ln-> a nice series.
22:14:41  <Eddi|zuHause2> one of the greatest series of all times ;)
22:14:51  <ln-> but not much strong language, as far as i remember.
22:15:05  <Eddi|zuHause2> ever listened to Deb talking?
22:15:30  <Eddi|zuHause2> like every second word out of her mouth is "fuck"

22:21:43  <peter1138> You're entitled to your opinion, even if it is wrong...
22:22:00  <SpComb> nevermind, some issues with argument const-ness
22:22:44  <ln-> Eddi|zuHause2: the author often uses three-D combinations such as "Darkly Dreaming Dexter", "Dearly Devoted Deborah", ... some work for german translators.
22:23:14  <Eddi|zuHause2> ln-: this kind of thought usually gets totally translated away...
22:23:58  <Eddi|zuHause2> like when in Charmed, all episode titles are references to movies or common phrases... nothing left in the translation, except in some rare incidences...

22:43:17  <Eddi|zuHause2> i have 10 tile cargo trains, but 10 tile passenger trains look ugly
22:43:47  <Gonozal_VIII> longer wagons would look weird in curves
22:43:55  <Eddi|zuHause2> with 50% longer wagons, 12 wagons would be 9 tiles, plus engine

22:57:04  <SpComb> no working broadcast either
22:57:28  <Gonozal_VIII> memory and ips are not really the same
22:58:02  <peter1138> Eddi|zuHause2, ah... and I always remember the people waiting for 32bpp who thought that would solve every problem...
22:58:08  <Gonozal_VIII> current ips could still be enough for lots of years if they were used differently
22:58:18  <SpComb> but eventually, they will run out
22:58:32  <SpComb> you might be able to delay it until, oh, 2020, but it's still going to happen
22:58:38  <Prof_Frink> Eventually, the sun will run out of hydrogen
22:58:40  <Gonozal_VIII> yep

23:01:08  <ln-> there must be a lot of unused IPv4 addresses... i've been told that a lot of small companies in finland who need maybe ~8 static IPs have been given the whole 65k block of IPs.
23:01:13  <SpComb> time_t is already 64 bits these days, isn't it?
23:01:19  <ln-> "a lot" = more than 1
23:01:33  <ln-> SpComb: on what platform?
23:01:34  <Fujitsu> SpComb: No.
23:01:42  <SpComb> 64-bit linux?
23:01:46  <Fujitsu> SpComb: There are issues with compatibility with file formats, so it's 32-bit.
23:01:59  <SpComb> so time64_t or somesuch?
23:02:02  <Fujitsu> If time_ts weren't in lots of file formats, it'd be easy to change.
23:02:15  <Eddi|zuHause2> SpComb: actually, making it unsigned would give them another 70 years
23:02:44  <Gonozal_VIII> it's signed? why that?
23:02:56  <Eddi|zuHause2> because someone thought that was funny ;)
23:02:58  <ln-> Gonozal_VIII: the negative time for the past.
23:03:13  <ln-> time_t can express dates from ~1901 .. 2038
23:04:21  <Gonozal_VIII> who needs that?
23:04:51  <Prof_Frink> alan@frinkserv:~$ date --date="Jan 01 2039" --> date: invalid date `Jan 01 2039'
23:04:54  <Prof_Frink> alan@frinkpad:~$ date --date="Jan 01 2039" --> Sat Jan  1 00:00:00 GMT 2039
23:05:23  <ln-> Gonozal_VIII: dunno, but it's for example a valid range for expressing anyone's birthday on this channel.
23:06:01  <ln-> it's also a valid range for expressing any employee's birthdate in any company.
23:09:26  <ln-> which was true even in 1970.

23:28:48  <Eddi|zuHause2> the E94? grey
23:28:57  <Eddi|zuHause2> the green ones are younger
23:29:28  <Eddi|zuHause2> the grey ones are mainly on the woods route, the green ones on the coal route
23:29:33  <fjb> That is usual. Why do you think they are odd?
23:29:47  <Gonozal_VIII> old, not odd
23:29:58  <fjb> Oh, sorry.
23:30:06  <fjb> I think I need new glasses.
23:30:45  <fjb> Next livery will be cream blue, mid 70s to late 80s.
23:31:15  <Eddi|zuHause2> i'm already 1985
23:31:44  <ln-> Gonozal_VIII: you have an elephant?
23:31:52  <fjb> Not all got repainted. E94 looked much better in green livery anyway.
23:33:15  <Gonozal_VIII> you wrote "you/they know we have no elephant"
23:33:36  <ln-> yes, that's exactly what i wrote.
23:33:53  <Gonozal_VIII> but it should be keinen not kein
23:33:56  <Eddi|zuHause2> it's "keinen" though
23:34:15  <ln-> ah, i suspected that.
23:34:18  <Gonozal_VIII> and it doesn't make any sense
23:34:24  <Eddi|zuHause2> and "Elefanten"
23:34:46  <ln-> it's supposed to be singular.
23:34:47  <Eddi|zuHause2> though most germans probably wouldn't recognise this error either
23:35:12  <Gonozal_VIII> is that mandatory?
23:35:44  <Eddi|zuHause2> yes, but it's Akkusativ ;)
23:36:20  <Gonozal_VIII> that doesn't matter, it's plural
23:36:37  <Gonozal_VIII> normal akkusativ singular would be elefant
23:36:42  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause2: Most germans won't recognise it? It sounds horribly wrong. But maybe you are right...
23:37:08  <Gonozal_VIII> den elefant
23:37:20  <Gonozal_VIII> that plural thing is some other rule
23:37:27  <fjb> "keinen Elefanten" is singular. "keine Elefanten" is plural.
23:38:26  <Gonozal_VIII> the word elefanten is plural of elefant
23:38:37  <Eddi|zuHause2> you are generalising too much
23:38:56  <Eddi|zuHause2> "mit dem Elefanten/ohne den Elefanten", both singular
23:39:09  <Eddi|zuHause2> google is about 50/50 on that...
23:39:24  <Gonozal_VIII> yes but why is it in plural form?
23:39:35  <Eddi|zuHause2> it is not plural form
23:39:40  <SmatZ> :-D
23:39:40  <fjb> It is not pliural.
