06:49:24  <Celestar> why does a "sound cracking" bug have "high" severity?
06:50:44  <Patrick`> because it actually affects something the end-user experiences?
06:51:20  <peter1138> because users think their bug is most important
06:51:28  <Celestar> :P
06:51:31  * Celestar is downgrading it

06:58:40  <Rubidium> Celestar: new bugs, most the cause of the RC but none of them are actually interesting :(
07:03:47  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: rubidium * r12498 /trunk/src/openttd.cpp: -Codechange: bring a little 'order' to openttd.cpp's includes and do not 'define' VARDEF for files that do not have them anymore.
07:03:53  *** tokai [] has joined #openttd
07:04:14  <peter1138> Just remove all VARDEFs!
07:04:34  <Eddi|zuHause2> what's a VARDEF anyway?
07:04:43  <peter1138> A lazy construct.
07:04:54  <Rubidium> that's the final plan, but this is just preventing people from adding VARDEFs to most of the code-base
07:05:26  <Eddi|zuHause2> and what's bad about laziness ;)
07:05:48  *** a1270 [] has quit [Quit: The ending changes tone & is actually quite sad - but it involves a scene of necrophilia, so that's just another plus in my book.....]
07:05:51  <Celestar> VARDEFs suck
07:06:03  <Celestar> variable definitions shouldn't be in headers.
07:06:20  <Celestar> whatever ... /me goes to work
07:11:30  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: rubidium * r12499 /trunk/ (4 files in 3 dirs): -Codechange: some coding style tweaks for network_internal.h.

07:26:57  <Celestar> wow Rubidium :)
07:27:09  <Celestar> you're really pissed at the state of the header files aren't you?
07:27:27  <Rubidium> somewhat yeah
07:27:40  <Celestar> not without reason ;)
07:27:49  * peter1138 ponders testing the build time now
07:29:19  * Celestar wonders whether Rubidium will help him with syncing NewGRF_ports now ;)
07:29:31  <Celestar> peter1138: is it me or did the build time get out of hand?
07:29:59  <peter1138> it did, not helped by moving to c++ but it got worse after that
07:30:12  * peter1138 times it
07:30:27  <Celestar> peter1138: debug or no debug? ;)
07:30:28  <ln> just buy 4-core machines, people
07:30:30  <Rubidium> some templates are pretty heavy
07:30:34  <peter1138> debug
07:30:51  <peter1138> but i like my 8 year old machine, ln
07:31:02  <caladan> hmm, use some distcc? :D
07:31:18  <Celestar> man ... LHR's terminal 5 is really a disaster, right? ;)
07:31:32  <Eddi|zuHause2> a what?
07:31:41  <Celestar> forget it ? ;)
07:31:42  <Rubidium> I just thought they continued to improve their record
07:32:14  <Celestar> Rubidium: yeah, apart from the fact that they ask people not to bring luggage because the luggage system doesn't work, everything else is ok.
07:32:43  <Eddi|zuHause2> Celestar: well, i haven't been to that many airports
07:32:58  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause2: Heathrow sucks. Ass.
07:33:19  <Celestar> it's _almost_ as bad as Charles-de-Gaulle
07:34:00  <caladan> and not as bad as the one in Warsaw ;-)
07:34:04  <Eddi|zuHause2> what are the criteria for judging the suckiness of an airport?
07:34:56  <Rubidium> number of lost pieces of luggage a minute and number of canceled flight per minute being more than resp. 50 and 1?
07:35:18  <peter1138> Monty Python already did a song about it...
07:35:37  <Eddi|zuHause2> yeah, and you already have a patch for it ;)
07:35:39  <peter1138> # And I'm worried about the baggage retrieval system they've got at Heathrow
07:36:04  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause2: lost luggage, delays, cancellations, signage, roofs falling on passengers....
07:36:34  <Celestar> :o 3:39 for building ottd
07:37:16  <Celestar> caladan: _nothing_ sucks as much as does LHR or CDG. well ... JFK maybe
07:37:20  <Eddi|zuHause2> i've been to munich airport some 10 years ago
07:37:33  <Celestar> :)

07:39:43  <Celestar> hey Eddi|zuHause2
07:40:14  * Celestar wonders which part of the compilation is so slow :S
07:40:23  <peter1138> yapf ;)
07:40:39  <Celestar> :P
07:40:44  <Eddi|zuHause2> but yapf didn't really change
07:40:55  <Celestar>  find *.h | wc -l
07:40:55  <Celestar> 176
07:41:14  <Celestar> that's a crapload

07:41:28  <ln> user    1m32.208s
07:43:25  <Rubidium> Celestar: yes, it's a lot but reducing the size (and thus dependency on other headers) of the headers helps quite a bit in compile time
07:44:18  <Celestar> I quite agree
07:44:23  <Celestar> I was just wondering ;)

07:45:53  <Rubidium> Celestar, about NewGRF_ports: I've quite given up on that one
07:46:26  <Celestar> Rubidium: the syncing?
07:46:44  <Rubidium> it getting finished within reasonable time
07:46:53  <Celestar> Rubidium: it basically is finished ;)
07:47:08  <Celestar> we need one more newgrf features (station animation) and it's done.

07:47:11  <Rubidium> Celestar: no it is NOT
07:47:22  <Celestar> 70 includes? :o
07:47:39  <Celestar> Rubidium: what's missing?
07:47:40  <Rubidium> Celestar: and they're all needed -> ergo openttd.cpp has become one big mess
07:47:59  <Rubidium> Celestar: it is one big copy-paste which is already unmaintainable
07:48:15  <Rubidium> furthermore there are todos and warnings all over the place
07:48:23  <Celestar> Rubidium: I'll see through the newgrf_port code and see what can be done.
07:48:26  <Rubidium> coding style suck as much as T5
07:48:33  <Celestar> that's bad.
07:48:41  <Celestar> so you suggest starting over?
07:48:56  <Rubidium> and RichK couldn't be 'bothered' about coding style because he first wanted to get it working
07:49:13  <Rubidium> that reminds me of TGP which also took a few months of work after he said it was finished
07:49:23  <Celestar> ;)
07:49:32  <Eddi|zuHause2> i have voiced my concern about "first get it working" before...
07:50:02  <Eddi|zuHause2> only i have no voice
07:50:07  <Eddi|zuHause2> so nobody listens ;)

07:51:11  <Celestar> lol
07:51:12  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause2: only RichK doesn't listen
07:51:31  <Celestar> Rubidium: so .. start over and implement the features in an orderly style?
07:51:51  <Rubidium> Celestar: and RichK's last episode doesn't encourage me to continue with his work either.
07:52:46  *** Brianetta [] has quit [Quit: TschÌß]
07:55:24  <Celestar> what happened?
07:55:28  <Rubidium> Celestar:
07:56:10  <Rubidium> he basically said that we didn't plan ahead because we didn't add much unused free bytes to the map in one go
07:58:23  *** snorre [~snorre@] has joined #openttd
07:58:35  <Celestar> what do we need that 1 bit for?

07:59:06  *** roboboy [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:59:26  <Rubidium> but that isn't the problem, it's just that he blames us for trying to keep the savegame file as small as possible with the current features

08:00:18  *** mikl [] has joined #openttd
08:00:19  <Eddi|zuHause2> i think he missed the point that the extension of the map array was not meant to be static, but that it can easily be extended further if necessary
08:02:19  <Eddi|zuHause2> and this was a suggestion independent from richk:

08:09:05  <Celestar> peter1138: will you help? ;)
08:09:25  <Rubidium> Celestar: better get station anims working first :)

08:10:02  <Celestar> good point. peter1138 has it working? ;)
08:11:00  <peter1138> partly
08:11:08  <peter1138> as in, probably but not completely tested

08:24:39  <Phantasm> Lol.
08:25:00  <Celestar> amix: what's the display size on that device?
08:25:09  <Trond> is the big screenshot option broken, or is it just that my system cannot handle the huge png/bmp files?
08:25:21  <Rubidium> Trond: broken in what manner?

08:25:38  <Trond> broken in the manner that I get a file I cannot open...
08:25:44  <Rubidium> amix: AFAIK there's already a symbian port somewhere
08:26:06  <Phantasm> How well does it run? As long as you don't play bigger maps than 64x64? ;P
08:26:08  <Rubidium> then you most liky do not have enough memory
08:26:41  <Trond> 2gb isnt enough for a 600mb file?
08:26:42  <amix> hehe
08:26:53  <Phantasm> Might be so.
08:26:57  <Trond> the files come out around 600mb :P
08:27:06  <amix> Celestar: 800x352
08:27:10  <Rubidium> Trond: not when it's highly compressed and your view is lame enough to uncompress it in memory

08:27:32  <Phantasm> Hehe.
08:27:36  <Trond> my view? meaning the app I use?
08:27:56  <amix> Rubidium: there is?
08:28:13  <amix> psp have it
08:28:31  <Rubidium> well, it should work on E60

08:29:41  <amix> Phantasm: no
08:29:43  <Celestar> 80 MB ..
08:29:46  <amix> 128mb
08:29:47  <Trond> ok eddi, I guess I'll try with a smaller map and see if that works... I tried open them with irfanview, paintshoppro, paint...

08:30:38  <amix> also some pics etc
08:30:43  <amix> which takes space
08:31:03  <Trond> I think its 1024x2048
08:31:07  <amix> make use of the memcard would be nice
08:31:10  <Phantasm> amix: Don't talk about memory when refering to storage space.

08:32:18  <amix> well
08:32:20  <amix> quake 1
08:32:21  <Trond> ouch
08:32:23  <amix> and quake 3
08:32:24  <amix> 2
08:32:28  <amix> runs on e90 now
08:32:38  <amix> runs nice even
08:32:44  <Phantasm> E90 got 256 MB of NAND that allows a max of 128 MB user storage.. It has 128 MB of SDRAM memory of which about 80 MB is free after OS and such.. Upto 4 GB MicroSD card is officially supported.
08:32:45  <Rubidium> and that means that only 64 bits binaries can open the png 'the lame way'
08:32:51  <Trond> that explains it I guess, thanks rubidium :)
08:33:05  <Gekz> Rubidium: the lame way/
08:33:13  <Trond> what programs does not open it the lame way then? :D
08:33:44  <amix> Phantasm: then symbian supports virtualmem i guess
08:33:55  <amix> since quake 2 requires a lot
08:34:07  <mrfrenzy> ottd runs really nice on sony ericsson M600i, BUT, the small screen makes it impossible to play
08:34:07  <amix> more than 64mb
08:34:13  <Phantasm> I'm sure symbian port of Q2 won't require more than 80 MB.
08:34:29  <Phantasm> Does the symbian port of Q2 run on say E70?
08:34:32  <amix> openttd port would?
08:34:41  <amix> Phantasm: try
08:34:51  <amix>
08:35:28  <amix> Phantasm: openttd could use of 3D to make openttd run faster also
08:35:37  <Rubidium> Trond: no idea, but maybe some of the command line conversion tools
08:35:50  <peter1138> use 3d? hah
08:35:53  <Rubidium> amix: please provide proof for that statement
08:35:58  <Phantasm> 25-30 MB of free RAM for symbian Q2.
08:35:59  <Trond> okey
08:36:09  <amix> Rubidium: what statement?
08:36:15  <Phantasm> Some more for hardware renderer.
08:36:22  <peter1138> 10-20MB RAM is enough for openttd
08:36:24  <Rubidium> amix: that 3D make openttd run faster
08:36:33  <amix> well
08:36:43  <amix> quake 2 uses gl on e90
08:36:47  <amix> makes it runs faster
08:36:57  <amix> same with amiga emulator
08:37:06  <amix> with gl, it renders faster
08:37:09  <Phantasm> Software rendering uses the CPU, while hardware rendering uses the GPU more or less.
08:37:30  <Phantasm> So, using hardware rendering, more of the CPU should be free for other stuff.
08:38:18  * Rubidium wonders whether gl can handle 10.000+ textures, especially on a symbian
08:39:00  <amix> well, e90 got wlan, hsdpa support. playing openttd on it would be great. a neat feature for it would be keymapping offcourse. build with one key, move arround with others. in that way, a mobile version would be nice
08:39:03  <Rubidium> or even *many* more when you have many NewGRFs loaded

08:57:25  <peter1138> because that's the safest overclock, heh
08:57:26  <Phantasm> Those are properly available now.
08:57:47  <Phantasm> Safest... Any overclock is safe IF you test it is safe.. Nothing is safe before you test it.
08:57:52  <Phantasm> Not even default clock.
08:58:20  <Phantasm> Q9450 might not overclock that much though..

09:02:45  <peter1138> Q9450 costs considerably more than the Q6600
09:03:40  <peter1138> and as you say, as it already has a 1333 FSB, it won't overclock so well
09:03:48  <Celestar> I'd go Q9300
09:03:59  <Phantasm> FSB won't matter if you get suitable motherboard.
09:04:01  <peter1138> might just stick with the E8400
09:04:15  <Phantasm> Celestar: And half the L2?

09:05:58  *** ManiaMuse [] has joined #openttd
09:07:13  <Phantasm> Does Q9300 OC well?
09:07:52  <Phantasm> If not, then perhaps Q6600 is best cheap one for OC.. But otherwise Q9* are better quads as they only produce about 60% the heat.
09:08:35  <Celestar> Phantasm: and are faster clock-for-clock. not much, but a little
09:08:43  <Celestar> and the Q9300 seems to go 3.2-3.4 on air ...
09:08:54  <Phantasm> Nothing special then.
09:09:04  <Phantasm> About same for Q9450... Effectively not worth the effort.
09:09:07  <peter1138> 2.5 -> 3.4 is quite a lot
09:09:57  <amix> so
09:10:08  <amix> you know where the symbian build is?
09:10:16  <amix> i would love to be a betatester
09:10:18  <peter1138> Hmm, E8400, £124.99, Q6600, £125
09:10:36  <Celestar> lol
09:10:37  <Phantasm> I won't bother trying to OC Q9450.. Even if it may go to 3-3.4 GHz, the OC is so small it is not worth the more expensive mobo etc and all the effort.
09:10:42  <amix> ive been betatester for wirelessirc, delfmpeg etc
09:11:42  <Phantasm> For OC to be worth trying, it would take about 30% guaranteed OC without voltage raise.
09:12:19  <Phantasm> Some OC tests for Q9450 have used quite a lot of extra voltage to achieve the OC and as such it easily gets out of the quiet comp..

09:16:27  <Phantasm> Yep, that is why I don't bother trying to OC Q9450.. And I ordered it because of the less heat than Q6600.

11:42:33  <Ammler> you don't get income for example sand, as coal works
11:43:40  <Ammler> means, you need to know, BEFORE you creating a scenario, which cargo types you like to use

12:05:37  <Eddi|zuHause2> <Mirrakor> wouldn't it be possible to allow "graphi change only" mode or something like this? Ignoring the other settings <- some special grfs can be put under [newgrf-static], these are graphical only
12:06:16  <Eddi|zuHause2> but the grfs have to be prepared for that, it won't work with most grfs
12:06:52  <Eddi|zuHause2> examples for this are tree replacement, catenary graphics and some bridge replacements
12:07:03  <Ammler> i.e. all OpenGFX grfs except landscape would work with static
12:07:31  <Ammler> (landscape doesn't because of the rivers)
12:08:08  <Eddi|zuHause2> it'd kinda make sense to split the rivers from the landscape, or not?
12:10:21  <Mirrakor> if a train station accepts items - does it also mean it provides?
12:10:30  <Maedhros> no
12:11:01  <Mirrakor> do I only get them from industries?
12:12:59  <Maedhros> no, houses can produce things as well

12:14:03  <Mirrakor> oh sorry - I guess I phrased my question wrong: when it says "station xyz, accepts: mails, items, passengers" - does that mean I can get items from this station and transfer it to another station(which also accepts items)
12:16:33  <Maedhros> not unless you use transfers - otherwise the items will be delivered to the station and effectively disappear
12:17:14  <Maedhros> if you use transfers you can make them accumulate at that station instead so they can then be picked up again and delivered to the other station
12:18:15  <Mirrakor> so if build a transfer depot next to the train station the items can go on rthe rails?

12:39:04  <Mirrakor> allow multiple industries - is when you can have different industries in a city?

13:45:34  <Diadem> I just discovered that realistic acceleration removes deceleration by curves
13:45:43  <Diadem> that's nice
13:47:58  <hylje> by some curves
13:48:27  <Diadem> I always thought it slowed down trains
13:48:30  <Diadem> but it speeds them up :)
13:48:37  <hylje> if you have long enough straigth track before and after the curve
13:48:44  <hylje> that depends on train length
13:48:59  <Ammler> Diadem: it makes trains growing not speed up
13:49:09  <Ammler> but thats the perspecitve

13:54:06  <Diadem> So how exactly does it change things?
13:54:16  <Diadem> Realistic acceleration goes uphill a lot faster. It takes corners without slowing at all
13:54:19  <Diadem> What are the drawbacks?

13:55:18  <Gekz> HOW IRONIC
13:55:31  <edeca> Anybody know if there is an easy way to grab all the dependencies (like png.h) to build openttd on windows?
13:55:38  <edeca> Oh I wish my dekstop was gentoo :|
13:55:55  <glx> Diadem: with RA, going uphill slows the train down
13:56:01  <keyweed> Diadem: i don't know all the details, but the mass of the train is taken into account on uphill stretches
13:56:49  <glx> so it's or slow in curves, or slow on slopes
13:56:52  <Diadem> Actually going uphill slows the train down less, a lot less, with RA
13:57:15  <Phantasm> It slows realistically.
13:57:25  <glx> depends on engin power
13:58:18  <Diadem> I'm using engines with very little power here, steam
13:58:33  *** Belugas_Gone [~belugas@] has quit []
13:58:42  <Diadem> They seem to accelerate slightly slower on straight stretches
13:58:54  <Phantasm> Both low power and low speed.
13:59:01  <Phantasm> I think the physics are somewhat explained in the wiki.
13:59:29  <Diadem> It has very little on it
13:59:41  <Phantasm>
14:01:05  <Diadem> ah
14:01:13  <Diadem> I was looking at hte page about realistic acceleration
14:03:43  <Diadem> What is the default setting for "Weight multiplier for freight to simulate heavy trains"?
14:11:06  <Phantasm> 1 I think.
14:12:25  <Trond> I agree :)
14:12:26  <Diadem> what exactly does it do?
14:12:42  <Trond> funny parking:
14:12:59  <Diadem> it only affects cargo? So loaded trains?
14:13:13  <Diadem> Say you put it on two, then 30 tonnes of coal would 'weigh' 60 tonnes?
14:13:36  <edeca> Urgh, need directx sdk, urgh ;)
14:14:09  <Trond> I have no idea Diadem... wiki says nothing about that option...
14:14:40  <Diadem> Hence me asking here :)
14:14:51  <Diadem> If we could figure it out we could even update the wiki :)
14:15:30  <Trond> yeh, so I guess you try it and see what happens =)
14:15:58  <Diadem> hard to test :)
14:16:01  <Diadem> but let's try
14:16:15  <Trond> I'll get a coffee while you're testing, hehe :P

14:22:05  <Belugas> mmmm :D
14:23:56  <Celestar> (=
14:24:41  <Diadem> RA accelerates a lot faster at slower speeds
14:24:45  <Diadem> but less fast near top speed
14:25:48  <Celestar> Diadem: which is how it works IRL
14:26:09  <Diadem> And the weight multiplier does nothing at all
14:28:14  <Diadem> both with and without RA trains accelerate at exactly the same speed wether the weight multiplier is 1 or 10
14:29:28  <Eddi|zuHause2> it only applies for _full_ trains, and not for passengers/mail
14:29:37  <Diadem> I tried it with full trains
14:30:12  <Diadem> To be exact I tried it with a SH'8P' with 9 fully loaded coal trucks behind it
14:30:18  <Eddi|zuHause2> have you tried uphill?
14:30:31  <Diadem> ah no
14:31:02  <Eddi|zuHause2> preferably, going uphill from 0 speed
14:31:56  <Trond> so the weight multipl. only works uphill?
14:33:14  <Eddi|zuHause2> no, but the effects are most visible there
14:33:26  <Gekz> Gute nacht
14:33:30  <Trond> okey
14:33:44  <Diadem> Eddi|zuHause2: But it only works on full trains, right?
14:34:24  <Eddi|zuHause2> Diadem: empty trains should have no significant weight anyway
14:34:36  <Diadem> I know
14:34:43  <Diadem> But that makes it harder to test, I can't build full trains in the depot )

14:52:56  <Eddi|zuHause2> edeca: the limitation to 1 patch is on purpose

15:30:25  <Belugas> so, total number, plus number of individual industry type
15:30:46  * Rubidium has a better idea
15:32:19  <Belugas> ho?
15:34:31  <Belugas> until Rubidium comes up with his idea, i forgot to specify it has to be done on 2048*2048 and 256*256
15:34:57  <Belugas> on temperate
15:34:59  <Belugas> no grfs
15:35:07  <Belugas> Very low amount of towns
15:35:12  <Belugas> very flat
15:35:17  <Belugas> allow multiple factories on same town.
15:35:22  <Belugas> close to each other is allowed.
15:35:29  <Belugas> smooth economy is on
15:35:51  <Rubidium> well, lets try that :)
15:35:53  <Phantasm> And high starting industry count.
15:36:01  <Belugas> true
15:36:03  <Belugas> forgot that...
15:36:48  <Belugas> we would like to be able to verify the difference of the decrease of industries depending of the map sizes
15:37:22  <Belugas> the assumption is the the bigger the map, the fastest the number of indutries do decline
15:37:45  <Belugas> so, it can be viewed as a bug, or as an unbalancing.  depends
15:37:52  <Belugas> but it may need to be fixed
15:38:19  <Belugas> problem, it requires a lot of data to be able to follow the decline
15:38:24  <Belugas> therefore, asking users
15:38:28  <Belugas> thanks
15:38:31  <Belugas> and don't be shy
15:38:37  <Rubidium> therefor making a patch that dumps that to the console

15:39:09  *** Volley [~worf@] has joined #openttd
15:39:44  <Rubidium> does print it yearly though
15:40:10  <Belugas> even better if it yearly
15:40:20  <frosch123> Standard/smooth economy is also important, I guess
15:40:37  <Belugas> the 10 years idea was to have a general idea without bugging too much
15:40:50  <Belugas> i don't thuink standard/smooth is important
15:41:03  <Phantasm> It might be, so better have it at same setting for everyone.
15:41:06  <Belugas> unless it makes an impact on the speed of death
15:41:33  <Belugas> or maybe have a few batches on smooth, and a few batches on standard?
15:41:41  <Phantasm> Perhaps.
15:41:43  <Belugas> but distinctively markes
15:41:44  <frosch123> IIRC smooth economy calls production change for every industry every month (including the same chance for every industry to close). While non-smooth economy picks only one industry per month
15:41:51  <Belugas> -s+d
15:42:02  <Belugas> nope
15:42:10  <Belugas> both are called monthly
15:42:18  <Belugas> they just differ on their processes
15:42:25  * Maedhros suggests a standard config file as well
15:42:32  <Phantasm> Industry dies when the production goes too low, so it should matter. If not on average dying time, at least on variance.

17:18:45  <Sacro>  right, it is now o(N)
17:18:49  <Sacro> though i have no idea how it works
17:19:23  <Diadem> 100 trains, each takes about 14 months for the entire trip, and they get 330K per trip. That's, hmm, about 30 million a year

17:32:48  <Wolf01> so I can recharge my plasmagun
17:33:04  <jez9999> so i was shopping just now, and i was coming down on the escalator
17:33:25  <jez9999> some hideous woman behind me was saying to her child, "you should've slapped his face off!  i told you you should've slapped his face off!"
17:33:31  <jez9999> shame these people breed
17:33:55  <jez9999> everyone was looking at her though heh

17:34:15  <jez9999> :-)
17:34:38  <Diadem> Mirrakor: Here you are:,%2023rd%20Aug%201961.png
17:36:10  <Patrick`> Diadem: ooo
17:36:13  <Phantasm> Diadem: Uhm.. A pair of tracks can transport about 20 000 cargo a month (with normal breakdowns).
17:36:16  <Patrick`> don't belive in networks?
17:36:24  <jez9999> Diadem: im guessing you dont like towns
17:36:27  <Patrick`> Phantasm: and without networks?
17:36:32  <jez9999> Diadem: plonninghall is destroyed
17:36:37  <Phantasm> Patrick`: Networks?
17:36:47  <Diadem> jez9999: Yeah took me ages, was over 1200 people :)
17:36:54  <jez9999> heh
17:36:56  <Diadem> jez9999: I often remove towns if they are in the way ;)
17:37:18  <Diadem> Phantasm: With maglevs?
17:37:23  <Diadem> Phantasm: Not with steam trains
17:37:34  <Phantasm> 12-16 station tracks with suitable depot system and a pair of tracks can do 20 000 cargo a month with maglevs yea.
17:37:35  <Prof_Frink> You know the easy way to kill a town?
17:37:49  <Diadem> Prof_Frink: trees
17:37:52  <Phantasm> Diadem: Btw, at the era of steam trains, you won't have 20 000 cargo to transport.
17:38:07  <jez9999> has anyone written any half-decent Squirrel AIs for NoAI yet?
17:38:12  <jez9999> im sure there must be some around, cant find any
17:38:13  <Diadem> Patrick`: What do you mean? I don't believe in networks?
17:38:28  <Prof_Frink> Diadem: No, demolishing four buildings/road pieces and letting it decay
17:38:30  <Patrick`> Diadem: on closer inspection, you have some
17:38:40  *** Osai is now known as Osai`off
17:38:47  <jez9999> i want an AI that will give me a good challenge and try to bankrupt me by making my services unprofitable
17:39:05  <Phantasm> The normal AI can't even make profit in hardest possible settings. ;P
17:39:08  <yorick> jez9999: to #openttd.noai?
17:39:18  <Diadem> Phantasm: My steel mill does about 5000 a month. Trust me, I need so many trains to transport that all to the other side
17:39:29  <yorick> the WrightAI, that comes shipped with the noai branch, is a perfect competition
17:39:34  <Diadem> I could do with less lines I guess. But not with one. Just check the train density. Would need at least 3. Might as well make it 5, nicer number :)
17:39:36  <Phantasm> Diadem: 5k a month.. I'd say about 2 pair of tracks is enough.
17:39:54  <Phantasm> Diadem: The key is to fully utilize the tracks.. It takes quite a strange and optimized station to do so.
17:39:55  <Diadem> 2 would be pushing it
17:40:19  <Patrick`> I had an amusing idea once
17:40:21  <Phantasm> Do you have the tracks fully utilized?
17:40:28  <Diadem> Patrick`: I have a huge network towards my steel mill. Away from it, nope, no need, just one single long line
17:40:32  <Patrick`> to disable collision detection and just use a single railway line to carry 500 trains
17:40:33  <Phantasm> So that you have train after train with almost no space between going there?
17:40:34  * dih pitties the fool
17:40:57  *** yo [] has quit [Quit: Bye for now!]
17:41:09  *** Zealotus [] has joined #openttd
17:41:12  <Diadem> Phantasm: Nope. Still working on that. But for this steel line, it's really not needed. There's room enough, just a cost limitation
17:41:17  <Diadem> And it was only 200 million to build this line
17:41:37  <Diadem> Would have been maybe only 100 million with just 2 tracks
17:42:01  <Phantasm> Diadem: Try playing with as hard settings as possible.
17:42:08  <Phantasm> Nothing but water and mountains etc.
17:42:18  <Phantasm> And subarctic map style preferably. :)
17:42:26  <Diadem> I know this is an easy game for fun
17:42:38  <Phantasm> That way you won't get hundreds of millions of money in dozen years.
17:42:42  <Diadem> Played on mountains/seas often enough
17:42:46  <Tefad> many monies.
17:42:50  <Phantasm> For me, I lose interest when I have too much money to spend.
17:42:50  <Patrick`> yeah
17:42:55  <Patrick`> hard is hard, man!
17:43:03  <Phantasm> Harder than hard!
17:43:06  <Phantasm> Hard is too easy!
17:43:06  <Patrick`>  but even so after 5-10 years I have several million
17:43:10  <Patrick`> and it starts to get silly
17:43:21  <Wolf01> mmmh seem the only way is to blow up the checkouts and remake them... clearup freed only 4MB
17:43:23  <Patrick`> I want, like, train morgages, and lines that take 20 years to break even
17:43:44  <Diadem> Hehe, yep
17:44:25  <jez9999> the proper way to prevent yourself from getting 100s of millions is to code an AI so good it competes with you
17:44:40  <Patrick`> competition is annoying and frustrating
17:44:42  <Phantasm> jez9999: Won't really help.
17:44:49  <yorick> after which you know how to compete with it
17:44:52  <Patrick`> I'd rather see some asymmetric coop games
17:44:55  <jez9999> your routes arent very profitable because its rating is very high and you dont get much production.  also the industries' productions shouldnt increase over time, they massively increase you you make stupid amount of money
17:44:56  <Phantasm> There is enough space to go around.
17:45:00  <Patrick`> where a "line master" builds track to industries
17:45:05  <jez9999> Phantasm: depends on the mapsize
17:45:09  <Patrick`> and then rents capacity to the train companies
17:45:11  <Phantasm> jez9999: Standard map.
17:45:13  <jez9999> on a 512^2, i'd say the CPU could give you a good run
17:45:14  <Patrick`> 256?
17:45:21  <jez9999> after 50 years it'll be competing well
17:45:27  <jez9999> (if it's a very good ai)
17:45:28  <Diadem> The main thing is that operating costs aren't high enough
17:45:39  <Patrick`> I hate upgrading rail types so much that I start with monorail
17:45:42  <Diadem> Construction costs, no matter map type, etc, just don't matter anymore after a while
17:45:47  <Phantasm> jez9999: After 10 years you have enough money. Map insn't full yet.. You can go around well with ideal AI not making you bankrupt.
17:45:52  <Patrick`> but now it costs > max loan to build a single monorail line
17:45:52  <Diadem> The only way to avoid that is by making things much less profitable
17:46:52  <jez9999> Phantasm: mmhmm, hard to think of a solution
17:46:55  <jez9999> i guess there are several
17:47:11  <jez9999> high operating costs... having to pay big shareholder dividends if you're rich might be good
17:47:14  <jez9999> so you have to keep earning
17:47:31  <jez9999> and of course a good AI to keep you having to create good services
17:47:32  <Phantasm> jez9999: Have you played Railroad Tycoon 2?
17:47:35  <jez9999> nope
17:47:42  <jez9999> well maybe once
17:47:44  <jez9999> isnt it an old dos game?
17:47:52  <Phantasm> Something like that.
17:48:02  <jez9999> but it looked horrible compared with TT :-)
17:48:09  <jez9999> TT looks cute and fuzzy
17:48:23  <Phantasm> Looked yes, and part of the gameplay is quite off.. But it has awesome stock system!
17:48:33  <Noldo> I agree
17:48:44  <Phantasm> OTTD could use such stock system.
17:48:49  <jez9999> how does it work?
17:49:10  <Phantasm> It is quite hard to explain.. It is more or less realistic stock market made into there.
17:49:23  <jez9999> so comp players could buy you out?
17:49:27  <Phantasm> You start with personal money, you can make a company with your own money and get investor money to help with it.
17:49:28  <jez9999> not sure that would be good for gameplay
17:49:33  <Noldo> it can't be applied directly because the chairman/manager == company in openttd
17:49:36  <Phantasm> Yes, comp could buy you out.
17:49:42  <Phantasm> But in a realistic sense.
17:49:55  <Phantasm> You can also prevent the comp from buying you out if you are good enough.
17:49:56  <jez9999> i mean in the real world buyouts happen, but that doesnt mean the company bought out 'loses', they just become rich
17:50:06  <jez9999> in openTTD a buyout would put you out of the game as if you had 'lost'
17:50:11  <jez9999> not desirable
17:50:16  <Phantasm> jez9999: You could start new company.
17:50:22  <jez9999> hmm
17:50:27  <jez9999> but at a massive disadvantage
17:50:33  <jez9999> you lose huge amount of infrastructure
17:50:41  <Phantasm> You would get loads and loads of personal money if you got bought. And you could start fully self owned company that can't be bought unless you agree to.
17:50:55  <jez9999> well you could do that at the start
17:50:55  <Phantasm> But you get money worth the infrastructure (depending on how much of the company you own).
17:51:08  <Phantasm> You don't have enough money at start to do so.
17:51:09  <jez9999> if you cant be bought out why even offer the option
17:51:30  <Phantasm> Anyway, if you had played RT2 you would know the system is good and buying someone else out isn't just like that. So it would work just fine.
17:52:00  <Diadem> Well for a start they should fix company values then
17:52:02  <Phantasm> There are various things that can be done with the stock market.
17:52:02  <jez9999> im looking to get a system that keeps you playing, and keeps you working hard to create good services
17:52:06  <jez9999> what are you looking for? :-)
17:52:11  <Diadem> Mine is worth only slight more than my yearly income
17:52:16  <Diadem> Should be 20x as much, at least
17:52:25  <Phantasm> Diadem: The company value in OTTD is a joke.
17:52:38  *** Aerandir [] has quit [Quit: - nbs-irc 2.39 - -]
17:52:39  <Noldo> it's only the book value
17:53:01  <Phantasm> RT2 had a real life company value simulation.. The company value depends on the economy.. If economy is booming the value is more and if there is depression the value goes less etc.
17:53:09  <Phantasm> And lots of factors matter on it.
17:53:17  <Diadem> hehe
17:53:18  <Diadem> gotta love this
17:53:25  <jez9999> i think that's more than is needed (initially) to have a more competitive game though
17:53:30  <Diadem> Last year I made 43 million *net* profit
17:53:40  <Diadem> My company value: 44 million
17:53:41  <Diadem> wow :)
17:53:57  <Phantasm> Diadem: Old trains don't have much value, so yea, OTTD company value is a joke.
17:54:02  <jez9999> you must be spending a lot of money :-)
17:54:28  <Diadem> Yeah see the screenie :)
17:54:37  <Diadem> I spent about 200 million this year. So atm I have only 5 million cash
17:54:49  <jez9999> i think my problem with OpenTTD main branch is i have different priotiries to the main devs
17:55:00  <jez9999> the main devs seem to want to make the game good for the #openttdcoop people
17:55:04  <jez9999> tons of trains, graphics, and stuff
17:55:13  <jez9999> good train networks, signals etc
17:55:26  <jez9999> all good but if you want a fun 1 player game that isnt enough, you need to concentrate on competition and AI
17:55:27  <Diadem> I don't understand the focus on graphics... Noone plays a 10 year old game for the pretty graphics
17:55:33  <jez9999> main devs dont give a damn about that :-(
17:55:46  <jez9999> we could do with a few major branches
17:55:47  * Belugas slaps
17:55:52  <Belugas> jez9999
17:55:55  <jez9999> what, do you dispute that statement?
17:55:58  * Belugas slapas jez9999
17:56:05  <Belugas> ho shoooo...
17:56:13  <Belugas> you do not know waht you are talking about
17:56:14  <Belugas> that'
17:56:16  <Belugas> s
17:56:17  <jez9999> there is still a crappy AI and it's far too easy to make money :-)
17:56:19  <Belugas> all i had to say
17:56:31  <blathijs> jez9999: It's more of an issue of what people are able to do, or like to do
17:56:31  <Rubidium> jez9999: there are already too many branches to manage
17:56:44  <jez9999> Rubidium: what, 2?
17:56:57  <Diadem> Well jez9999 resources are limited
17:57:09  <blathijs> jez9999: Writing a good AI is hard, and there aren't too many devs that actually like working on that part
17:57:11  <jez9999> maybe NoAI could be the branch focussed on competition etc
17:57:26  <Diadem> I mean you can say the development is focussed on that... But realistically. We still don't have PBS in the main branch. Or a good autoreplace/upgrade functions
17:57:28  <Rubidium> jez9999: actually 7
17:57:42  <Diadem> That's two things that are really needed imho
17:57:45  <jez9999> Diadem: autoreplace is ok?
17:57:47  <blathijs> jez9999: Same goes for making the game more competitive, that's a very nontrivial job...
17:57:57  <jez9999> blathijs: sure, but if accomplished it would be very cool :-)
17:57:59  <jez9999> so worth trying
17:58:12  <Diadem> It's just a lot of work making a game
17:58:16  <Diadem> And noone gets payed for it
17:58:50  <jez9999> i dont dispute that, i just think there's a limit to how fun it can get building big complex networks
17:58:57  <jez9999> at some point i want a challenge from another company
17:59:04  <Rubidium> play in MP
17:59:11  <jez9999> still you wont go bankrupt
17:59:18  <Rubidium> or write an AI
17:59:24  <jez9999> ive dablled with the AI :-)
17:59:50  <Diadem> Well...Start with a simply patch I guess: Operating costs *= 50
17:59:53  <jez9999> but i also think the business rules need changing
17:59:56  <Rubidium> in MP you can go bankrupt
17:59:57  <Diadem> That should make the game a bit more challeging
18:00:04  <Diadem> *challenging
18:00:07  <Rubidium> Diadem: for that there's a newgrf
18:00:18  <jez9999> as we were talking about earlier, Rubidium, operating costs need to be higher, rich companies have to pay dividents, etc
18:00:18  <Rubidium> that changes the base costs of almost everythinh
18:00:27  <jez9999> otherwise if you get a good start going bankrupt takes about 100 years
18:00:37  <jez9999> we need a way to have to constantly make money or be in trouble
18:00:38  <Diadem> It's not construction costs, it's the running costs taht should go up
18:00:56  <jez9999> a good AI is part of that but not the whole solution
18:00:57  <Rubidium> Diadem: also influencable by a newgrf
18:01:10  <Diadem> Basicly once you have a line it effectively amkes 100% profit. That's just insane
18:01:46  <Patrick`> yeah.
18:01:49  <blathijs> 19:57:57 < jez9999> blathijs: sure, but if accomplished it would be very cool :-) <-- That's something entirely different then yelling stuff like "main devs dont give a damn about that :-("
18:01:56  <blathijs> s/then/than/
18:01:56  <Rubidium> Diadem: happens in the real world too
18:01:56  <jez9999> another thing i'd change is setting the default subsidy multiplier to about 10, anything less is rarely worth doing
18:02:10  <Phantasm> jez9999: Hell no.
18:02:18  <Patrick`> it should not be profitable to lay a long line to a 50ton/month primary industry and have one train wait 6 months for a load.
18:02:19  <Phantasm> Subsidy multiplier at 10 would break the hell lose.
18:02:30  *** helb [~helb@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:02:30  <jez9999> blathijs: well im afraid ive suggested quite a few things that would make things more competitive, main devs havent exactly worked with me on them :-)
18:02:33  <jez9999> so i do come to that conclusion
18:02:35  <Rubidium> Diadem: in the real world most companies are forced to run less profitable lines
18:02:44  <Diadem> tbh I wouldn't even use it at 20 multiplier... those lines are simply to short to bother with
18:02:47  <Patrick`> we're reluctant to modify the gameplay
18:02:51  <Patrick`> even if bigmaps did that
18:02:59  <jez9999> Phantasm: really?  subsidies only last for a year
18:03:03  <jez9999> 10x seems reasonable
18:03:08  <jez9999> you have to rush-build a track
18:03:10  <Phantasm> Diadem: Select as hard as possible settings and you'll know why.
18:03:13  <blathijs> jez9999: I'd invite you to write down a proposal with changes, find a programmer to implement them, and then we can see if things improve
18:03:14  *** helb [~helb@] has joined #openttd
18:03:22  <Diadem> Phantasm: I've played on hard often enough
18:03:24  <jez9999> blathijs: i write patches.
18:03:28  <jez9999> i am a programmer.
18:03:30  <Phantasm> Diadem: Hard is NOT really hard.
18:03:40  <jez9999> i also propose stuff on the forum
18:03:40  <blathijs> jez9999: The problem with these kinds of changes is that they're probably only useful when applied at the same time
18:03:42  <Phantasm> Diadem: I mean the hardest possible custom settings you can pick from everywhere.
18:03:43  <Diadem> bah I played the OLD TTD on hard often enough... OTTD is much easier than TTD
18:03:56  <blathijs> jez9999: That makes part 2 of my suggestion an easy job (finding a programmer ;-p)
18:04:06  <Phantasm> Diadem: Such settings that AIs at highest intelligency etc won't ever make profit.
18:04:20  <jez9999> blathijs: it's less motivating when you know it wont get into the main trunk though.  nobody else will work with me on it
18:04:21  <Diadem> Phantasm: I never play with AIs anyway
18:04:26  <jez9999> much more difficult that way
18:04:41  <Phantasm> Diadem: Neither do I really.. Anyway, if you try the hardest possible settings, you'll see what the subsidies do.
18:04:54  <jez9999> isnt the default 1.5x on hardest? :-)
18:04:58  <jez9999> it's pointless
18:05:01  <blathijs> jez9999: I can't deny that it's not so trivial to find a motivated dev willing to help you out improving and applying patches, unfortunately...
18:05:09  <Diadem> Phantasm: On hard it's 1.5 which is pointless for only 1 year and a very short route
18:05:28  <Phantasm> Diadem: Actually even 1.5 matters.
18:05:30  <jez9999> blathijs: i would be such a dev but will they give me SVN commit access?  :-)
18:06:26  <Diadem> Phantasm: Or are you talking about not just difficulty settings but also changing patches to make it harder?
18:06:28  <jez9999> it's all very well me posting a patch for some better business rules on the forum but if it doesnt get into any main codebase, it's depressing
18:06:34  <jez9999> and very few people get to experience it
18:07:02  <Rubidium> that's because very few people write good patches
18:07:05  <Phantasm> Diadem: Difficulity, map settings and reasonable patch settings.
18:07:11  <Belugas> those programmers who made good enough a job at writing patches are usually devs right now
18:07:31  <Rubidium> and *if* a patch is so worse that I'd spend more time on it to get it to trunk than to write the feature myself, I'm not even considering it
18:07:45  <jez9999> Rubidium: i wrote a good patch
18:07:48  <Belugas> and jez9999, the least that can be said about your patches is that they do not reach the required level
18:07:50  <jez9999> you said "no" and gave me no justification.
18:07:51  <Diadem> Phantasm: One thing about OTTD is that patches make it easier compared to TTD. Like, for example, being able to build an entire stretch of diagonal railroad at once
18:07:55  <jez9999> thanks a lot.
18:08:11  <Diadem> Phantasm: And autoreplace. And longer trains, better pathfinding, presignals, etc, etc.
18:08:20  <jez9999> im talking about my map colours patch, it's as simple as it gets and only improves the game
18:08:21  <Diadem> All good changes, but they do make the game eve neasier
18:08:21  <Rubidium> jez9999: no, you asked for my personal opinion
18:08:36  <jez9999> Belugas: i dont deny that my other one is not good enough yet
18:08:37  *** lobster_MB [~michielbr@] has joined #openttd
18:08:39  <Prof_Frink> Diadem: OTOH, newgrfs like DBSet, USSet and UKRS have rebalanced costs to make it harder
18:08:39  <Phantasm> Diadem: Autoreplace, presignals, better pathfinding etc don't matter at start.
18:08:54  <Belugas> other "ones" you mean...
18:09:08  <jez9999> *shrug*
18:09:22  <Belugas> jez9999, i saw the map color one.  I did not liked it.  I prefer the way the colors are right now
18:09:25  <Belugas> honestly
18:09:29  <jez9999> hmm
18:09:38  <jez9999> i dont get that :-)  they're not good right now.
18:09:45  <jez9999> how can you like blue player being the same as water??
18:09:52  <Belugas> YOU think they are not good
18:09:56  <jez9999> yeah i do :-)
18:09:59  <Belugas> YOU changed them to YOUR liking
18:10:03  <Belugas> that's ok
18:10:14  <jez9999> YOU think they are, i wonder how many people do
18:10:16  <Belugas> but there is no reason why it should go in trnk
18:10:25  <jez9999> maybe some vote process
18:10:26  <jez9999> :-)
18:10:26  <Prof_Frink> I agree with jez9999. The current way is bad.
18:10:32  <yorick> true
18:10:42  <Rubidium> jez9999: so when I like OpenTTD to be all purple, I should just commit it?
18:10:42  <dih> lol
18:10:52  <Phantasm> Very low towns, industries, min loan, max interest, high running costs, normal breakdownds, 1.5 subsidy, high cost of construction, fluctuating economy, hostile city council's attitude. Sub-arctic, mountainous terrain, high sea level, very rough smoothness, snow line heigth 2.
18:10:59  <Phantasm> Something like that.
18:11:05  <jez9999> Rubidium: i dunno how it works, it seems to be a bit random.  bjarni tends to 'just commit' his stuff as do other devs
18:11:06  <dih> hello Belugas
18:11:06  <jez9999> :-)
18:11:12  <jez9999> you tell me
18:11:21  <dih> lol
18:11:22  <Belugas> jez9999: how old is ottd?  And just NOW, it's unbearable?  come on...
18:11:26  <Belugas> hello Dih
18:11:29  <jez9999> i didnt say unbearable
18:11:32  <yorick> hello Dih
18:11:33  <jez9999> im saying this makes it better
18:11:42  <Rubidium> jez9999: might look like that, but that isn't the case
18:11:44  <dih> everybody sais that about their patches
18:11:44  <Belugas> i say it does not
18:11:49  <jez9999> i think most people would prefer the new colours
18:11:53  <jez9999> thats what im saying
18:12:02  <dih> every body sais that about their stuff too
18:12:09  <dih> emphasis on _that_
18:12:18  <yorick> I would like new colors, but not in that way, it makes the whole map darker
18:12:19  <jez9999> dih: and some people get 'their stuff' in trunk.
18:12:21  <Belugas> ok, little secret about users: they will ALWAYS applaude new stuff, no matter waht it is
18:12:29  <yorick> while I only want a changed blue color
18:12:43  <jez9999> you didnt say "YAPF is good for you, but why should it go in trunk?"
18:12:45  <jez9999> why not?
18:12:46  <dih> jez9999: no - _they_ dont get their stuff into trunk
18:12:52  <Diadem> Phantasm: very few towns actually makes the game easier
18:12:52  <yorick> **attention: Belugas reveald his secret about being a dev!***
18:13:01  <dih> _the devs_ accept _their_ patch and put it into trunk :-P
18:13:02  <Phantasm> Diadem: In what way?
18:13:08  <yorick> no towns in the way
18:13:21  <Diadem> Less towns to demolish :)
18:13:27  * Belugas remembers seen devs patches been rejected a lot before going in....
18:13:35  <Diadem> I really need only one town on my map, preferably in a corner
18:13:38  <Belugas> don't thuink it is an easy process either
18:13:44  <Phantasm> I'm talking about starting up with those settings.. Not the case 10-15 years later.
18:13:44  <Diadem> to carry goods too
18:13:46  <dih> Diadem: then make that map
18:13:51  <dih> there is a map editor
18:13:56  <jez9999> can you give me a 'more competitive' branch on the OpenTTD SVN server then?
18:14:03  <jez9999> it doesnt have to be the main trunk :-)
18:14:10  <Phantasm> I can agree that once you get started, no matter the settings, you can't go back down.
18:14:19  <Rubidium> dih: there are quite some dev's patches that have been rejected
18:14:20  <dih> jez9999: make a IN thread in the forums
18:14:28  <dih> Rubidium: i know :-)
18:14:31  <Noldo> jez9999: you can make a branch on your own svn server if you feel like it
18:14:41  <Diadem> Phantasm: Ah. Well then we are agreed aren't we :)
18:14:52  <dih> Rubidum: i am actually supporting 'the dev's here - at least i am trying to
18:14:55  <jez9999> yeah but who decides about the main server
18:14:58  <Diadem> Phantasm: I agree that starting up is quite challenging under those settings. But once you're going it reduces to easy mode really
18:15:13  <yorick> jez9999, devs do
18:15:16  <Diadem> (And btw, I have started under such settings, succesfully)
18:15:19  <dih> jeez
18:15:24  <yorick> :D
18:15:27  <dih> ^^
18:15:35  <jez9999> so, im asking the devs to consider it :-)
18:15:45  <dih> they already said no afaik
18:15:51  <Phantasm> Diadem: Easy yes, but with those settings it is still quite a much slower even after the start.
18:15:51  <yorick> the how manyth time, it is/
18:15:56  <Belugas> and they will say it again
18:15:57  <Belugas> no
18:16:00  <dih> :-P
18:16:01  <Diadem> Phantasm: true
18:16:09  <yorick> we've got 2 converstations going besides eachother ^^
18:16:21  <Phantasm> Keeps the game interesting as you don't have too much money so fast.
18:16:43  <dih> jez9999: in all honesty
18:16:59  <Phantasm> Also that gives a point of not doing excessive amount of tracks. If you have say 500 long route on those settings, it'll cost a forture.. Adding few more tracks costs another fortune.
18:16:59  <dih> whatever you start today will not live any longer than any other IN
18:17:17  <Diadem> Phantasm: Anyway my current goal is to see how far I can take a network. My ultimate goal is to transport every industry on a 1024*1024 map to the same place
18:17:23  <jez9999> the MiniIN branch still technically exists :-)
18:17:26  <Phantasm> Diadem: Rofl.
18:17:29  <jez9999> so it probably would
18:17:38  <yorick> argh * ignores ph and dia*
18:18:29  <jez9999> there was talk of a 'community' IN
18:18:32  <jez9999> i kind of like the idea
18:18:33  *** Roujin [] has joined #openttd
18:18:46  <jez9999> basically an IN with patches that are democratically decided on
18:18:46  <yorick> and it already exists, and is called "trunk"
18:18:56  <jez9999> nonsense, there is zero democracy there :-)
18:19:03  <yorick> who updates it?
18:19:07  <yorick> who manages it?
18:19:09  <jez9999> a few people, like me
18:19:11  <jez9999> :-)
18:19:13  <Diadem> Phantasm: This is the plan I'm working towards :P
18:19:23  <yorick> who fixes bugs coused by patches that are "democratically decided"
18:19:26  <yorick> caused*
18:19:33  <jez9999> yorick: the few people, like me
18:19:55  <yorick> what if you don
18:19:56  <yorick> t
18:19:57  <yorick> ?
18:20:03  <yorick> another IN died
18:20:08  <Diadem> yorick: gotta love IRC 'eh? Always fun 3 different conversations in one channel :)
18:20:19  <Rubidium> problem with INs is that they die and usually pretty quickly
18:20:21  <jez9999> ah but we could have a committee
18:20:27  <jez9999> and if people drop off then others are appointed
18:20:30  <jez9999> with SVN access
18:20:33  <yorick> and who exactly would that be?
18:20:35  <jez9999> then it wouldnt die so easily
18:20:37  <yorick> the dev's?
18:20:40  <jez9999> hell no
18:20:41  <Rubidium> furthermore the quality of those INs is usually very bad
18:20:47  <yorick> you're basically recreating trunk this way
18:20:55  <jez9999> there's a major difference
18:20:58  <Phantasm> Diadem: 3 isn't much.
18:20:59  *** Dominik [] has joined #openttd
18:21:01  <yorick> patches made by the public, a few reviewers...
18:21:01  <jez9999> actually two
18:21:04  <Phantasm> Diadem: 20 at a time on same chan is good.
18:21:11  <jez9999> 1) trunk doesnt have patches that arent 100% stable and tested
18:21:11  <Rubidium> jez9999: yes, that trunk is stable, and that your IN is not
18:21:19  <jez9999> 2) trunk doesnt have patches the devs dont personally like
18:21:25  <jez9999> they're the two things i'd like to change
18:21:31  <jez9999> yeah, sure, but that's ok
18:21:37  <Rubidium> and the IN will most likely not load savegames made in previous versions
18:21:38  <jez9999> they have 2 different functions
18:21:50  <jez9999> but for example my map colour change is 100% stable
18:21:53  <yorick> that IN would also not include patches the committee basically doesn't like
18:22:01  <jez9999> if the majority of users wanted that in it could get in
18:22:06  <yorick> people always say that about their patches
18:22:10  <jez9999> say what?
18:22:14  <yorick> that
18:22:25  <Diadem> Dude.... the main trunk will always contain  those changes the devvers like. That's the nature of devs.. That they make the game
18:22:29  <jez9999> yorick: the whole idea is that there would be a rule that the committee didnt decide
18:22:31  <Diadem> kind of comes with the job
18:22:37  <jez9999> they basically took a list of patche submissions and took votes
18:22:40  <Diadem> If you dislike it become a dev yourself
18:22:43  <yorick> they would be committing patches agains their will
18:22:48  *** dfox [] has joined #openttd
18:22:51  <yorick> and quit being committee
18:22:54  <Diadem> now I gtg
18:22:56  <Diadem> cya g uys
18:23:00  <yorick> and *poof* no committee anymore
18:23:05  <Rubidium> jez9999: in what way is a committee different than the current 'committee of devs'?
18:23:05  *** Diadem is now known as Di|gone
18:23:21  *** NukeBuster [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:23:30  <jez9999> Rubidium: they have a set of rules that includes 'your personal opinion doesnt matter when it comes to deciding on which patches get in'.
18:24:09  <Rubidium> oh, so when my patch follows some guidelines it goes in without asking?
18:24:15  <jez9999> no, it goes to a vote
18:24:24  <Rubidium> so personal opinion matters
18:24:30  <jez9999> public opinion matters
18:24:32  <jez9999> yeah
18:24:34  <jez9999> i like that idea
18:24:36  <Rubidium> voting == personal opinion
18:24:49  <yorick> jez9999, you're one of 2
18:24:51  <jez9999> yeah, personal opinion _of many people_
18:24:57  <Rubidium> what's many?
18:24:58  <jez9999> ie. the whole userbase
18:25:00  <yorick> the creator of the idea also liked it
18:25:03  <jez9999> anyone who wants to vote
18:25:11  <Rubidium> jez9999: 99.9% doesn't bother voting
18:25:15  <jez9999> so be it
18:25:22  <yorick> 99.99%*
18:25:28  <Rubidium> and then, what qualifies as a user?
18:25:43  <jez9999> have a registration system
18:25:49  <Dominik> for any project (and also games) someone has to decide what will be done and what won't. someone has to shape that project based on their experience and personal opinion. not everyone will like it but but too many cooks spoil the broth. unlike with closed source projects you could always start your own project based on OpenTTD.
18:25:50  <jez9999> there already is one; tt-forums
18:26:27  <jez9999> Dominik: yes, but that person may be using one of several systems to determine what goes in
18:26:32  <jez9999> im proposing a different system
18:26:47  <Dominik> start your own game project then
18:27:27  <jez9999> does Owen Rudge ever talk anymore?
18:27:31  <jez9999> anyone know how i could contact him
18:27:37  <Prof_Frink> jez9999: Yes.
18:27:42  <blathijs> orudge: jez9999 wants to talk to you
18:27:45  <Prof_Frink> I heard him last night
18:27:52  <Sacro> Prof_Frink: orly ;)
18:27:55  <orudge> hello
18:27:56  <orudge> I do talk
18:27:59  <jez9999> hi
18:28:02  <Sacro> orudge: and you never shut up
18:28:05  <blathijs> jez9999: Your ideas are actually pretty ok, in theory. In practice, things just won't work like that, unfortunately...
18:28:07  <Dominik> this is not a commercial project and your not putting any money into it. if you don't like how it is, do it differently yourself. but you can't force anyone (the OpenTTD devs) to work on any patches that they don't like
18:28:25  <jez9999> orudge: i'd quite like to start a community IN version of openTTD, and it would help a lot if it had a section on the tt-forums board
18:28:49  <orudge> do you really need an entire forum for such a thing? would a topic or two not suffice, for now at least?
18:28:49  <yorick> jez9999, if the public doesn't like democracy, it's basically useless
18:28:50  <jez9999> orudge: the idea would be that mature patches would be proposed for it and voted upon by registered tt-forums users
18:28:55  <orudge> hmm
18:28:56  <Sacro> jez9999: see MiniIN
18:29:03  <orudge> I'd rather not create confusion with "proper" OpenTTD though
18:29:09  <orudge> there are enough -IN versions around
18:29:11  <orudge> that just cause problems
18:29:15  <jez9999> Sacro: does it have its own forum or a democratic vote system, and is it actively maintained?
18:29:32  <jez9999> orudge: would it create confusion?
18:29:36  <Sacro> jez9999: no, it had a topic, and it kinda fell apart around 0.5.0
18:29:39  <jez9999> you could call it 'community IN' with no openttd in the name
18:29:40  <Sacro> it got too hard to maintain
18:29:43  <orudge> jez9999: for new users, often, yes
18:29:45  <jez9999> Sacro: exactly
18:29:47  <Sacro> i think community IN is lready used
18:29:50  <orudge> as they come along and see all these separate versions
18:29:51  <Sacro> wasn't the first one called that?
18:29:54  <orudge> that are incompatible with each other
18:30:07  <jez9999> 'community IN' is not used for any forum section
18:30:23  <jez9999> im talking about a new forum section like ttdpatch, openttd, etc
18:30:33  <orudge> Yes
18:30:40  <Belugas> jez TTD
18:30:46  <yorick> I wish you good luck
18:30:56  <orudge> but I'm not sure that I particularly like the idea of your project, if I'm honest
18:31:04  <orudge> many "integrated nightly"-type projects  have been and gone
18:31:05  <jez9999> oh :-)
18:31:14  <jez9999> but my idea's kind of fundamentally different
18:31:16  <yorick> ah, lets vote to his project
18:31:17  <orudge> you're very welcome to have a topic or three on the forum
18:31:20  <jez9999> they all revolved around 1 guy building it :-)
18:31:25  <orudge> but I think a whole forum isn't something I want to give you at the moment, anyway
18:31:29  <orudge> if it becomes really popular, perhaps
18:31:33  <Rubidium> jez9999: MiniIN was a multi-person thing
18:31:44  <yorick> raise hand if you like it!
18:31:51  <jez9999> i liked the miniIN
18:31:57  <jez9999> didnt get enough of a critical mass though
18:32:07  <jez9999> szeparate forum area might get more of a dedicated community
18:32:10  <jez9999> one thread doesnt tend to
18:32:13  <Rubidium> jez9999: it did get to the critical mass to kill itself
18:32:17  <jez9999> heh
18:32:21  <yorick> hmm...107 people are agains it :)
18:32:24  <yorick> t
18:32:53  <yorick> hehe
18:32:57  * orudge brb, reboot
18:33:21  <Rubidium> yorick: thanks for holding the vote. For what I've seen it was completely fair and nobody has obstructed it.
18:33:23  <dih> yorick: ask in #openttdcoop
18:33:27  <dih> get another bunch there
18:33:56  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: truebrain * r12519 /branches/noai/ (13 files in 5 dirs):
18:33:56  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: [NoAI] -Add: added AILog with Info(), Warning(), and Error()
18:33:56  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: [NoAI] -Add: redirect AI outputs to the AI Debug GUI to show it per AI, in a clear way ingame (no more need for stderr viewing)
18:33:56  <CIA-1> OpenTTD:  NOTE: it still does output to stderr, but on an other DEBUG() level (depending on the message).
18:34:01  <dih> IN's just dont tend to live _that_ long
18:34:30  <Patrick`> mmm, the miniIN had lots of cool patches
18:34:35  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: truebrain * r12520 /branches/noai/projects/ (openttd_vs80.vcproj openttd_vs90.vcproj): [NoAI] -Fix r12519: of course I forget to regenerate MSVC project files (bah, MSVC.. always MSVC... who uses MSVC?!)
18:35:08  <Rubidium> the whole problems with INs is that once they get 20 to 30 patches they simply die because they've become unmaintainable
18:35:21  <jez9999> Rubidium: you dont seem to have been listening to my proposal
18:35:25  <jez9999> maybe i didnt explain it properly
18:35:37  <Patrick`> jez9999: he gets paid to listen to you, you know
18:35:38  <yorick> Quite.
18:35:43  <Sacro> startPos += ++endPos
18:35:43  <jez9999> it basically would get continually repatched from scratch, and patches would be added/removed based on constant voted
18:35:45  <jez9999> votes
18:35:50  <dih> jez9999: i am pretty sure Rubidium has read enough of your proposals
18:35:54  <jez9999> heh
18:36:07  <dih> remember
18:36:13  <dih> all devs in here also have lives
18:36:14  <yorick> that looks very labor-intensive and unmaintainable
18:36:19  <yorick> they do?
18:36:19  <dih> so what they do on OpenTTD is free time
18:36:34  <blathijs> What? Free time? Where?
18:36:34  <yorick> they seem to have a lot of :p
18:36:37  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: rubidium * r12521 /branches/noai/src/ai/api/ (ai_abstractlist.hpp ai_company.hpp): [NoAI] -Change: make the style of end-of-line doxygen comments be the same for the whole AI API.
18:36:56  <dih> yorick: what appears to be on the surface aint what is underneath
18:37:10  <yorick> "."
18:37:33  <yorick> that line really needs one ^^.
18:38:01  <dih> jez9999: as for all your proposals
18:38:08  <blathijs> While you're at it, might as well capitalize it as well :-)
18:38:08  <dih> just look at the number of IN's around
18:38:28  <dih> just look at how many are actively maintained
18:38:38  <dih> check how long they have been around for
18:38:40  <yorick> 1
18:38:41  <jez9999> dih: that's like comparing saddam hussain's dictatorship with Finland's democracy
18:38:47  <jez9999> they're both leaderships, but one is democratic
18:38:48  <yorick> a few months
18:38:50  <Mirrakor> hm.. can I do something against the synchronisation errors in multiplayer?
18:38:57  <yorick> nothing
18:39:02  <yorick> disable grf's?
18:39:02  <dih> jez9999: you seem to talk bull crap
18:39:05  <jez9999> lol
18:39:20  <Rubidium> jez9999: so you can as non-politician vote directly for every law?
18:39:20  * Belugas agrees with dih
18:39:33  * yorick agrees with Belugas
18:39:46  <dih> jez9999: you know the best thing you can learn here
18:39:53  <Belugas> youhou! democracy in motion!
18:39:54  <dih> is accepting leadership :-D
18:40:04  <jez9999> thanks, but nobody offered it to me
18:40:08  <dih> and the 'leaders' are the devs
18:40:29  <dih> so you can suggest, but dont expect
18:40:34  * yorick agrees with dih again
18:40:39  <Rubidium> jez9999: you haven't answered my question
18:40:42  <jez9999> Rubidium: well, yeah.  it doesnt work well with regular democracy as laws are very complex, but with openttd patches...
18:40:56  <jez9999> combined with a userbase that is inherently interested in openttd
18:41:02  <yorick> good ones are also very complex
18:41:08  <dih> :-P
18:41:09  <jez9999> but the ideas behind them arent
18:41:11  <dih> and worth it
18:41:14  <jez9999> only the code
18:41:19  <jez9999> you're voting on the ideas
18:41:26  <dih> jez9999 another thing is - asumptions are bad
18:41:32  <Rubidium> jez9999: the ideas behind laws are very easy too, and there are very easy laws to vote for
18:41:32  <yorick> the ideas behinds laws aren't, are they?
18:41:43  <yorick> the contents are what makes a law complex.
18:41:48  <dih> i doubt that many people here will be able to grasp what actually goes on behind the scenes of OpenTTD
18:41:59  <jez9999> they dont need to...
18:42:05  <jez9999> unless they're implementing the patch
18:42:06  <dih> they should
18:42:23  <dih> because if they do they can once and for all stop the nagging
18:42:28  <dih> ^subtle hint
18:42:31  <Mirrakor> another question sorry: Is it possible to exchange some goods between a truck station and a train station?
18:42:37  <jez9999> i'd say most laws in a parliament are much more complex than an openttd patch
18:42:44  <dih> Mirrakor: yes
18:42:46  <jez9999> law in parliament: 50 pages of text
18:42:48  <dih> use transfere
18:42:48  <yorick> try transfer & unload, Mirrakor
18:42:48  <Mirrakor> dih: how?
18:42:53  <Mirrakor> ok
18:42:55  <jez9999> openttd patch: the patch does x, y, and z.  should it go in?
18:43:07  <dih> no
18:43:11  <yorick> jez9999: idea behind a law: 1 page
18:43:17  <jez9999> heh
18:43:17  <dih> jez9999: just look at coding guidelines
18:43:19  <Rubidium> yorick: or less
18:43:26  <jez9999> coding guidelines?
18:43:28  <dih> as that can already be a reason for deniying it
18:43:30  <Patrick`> Mirrakor: yes

18:46:05  <Mirrakor> hm.. now it said transfered (and showed an amount of euros.. but where is it now?
18:46:17  <yorick> in the station
18:46:20  <dih> Mirrakor: there are wiki pages
18:46:23  <dih>
18:46:27  <dih> search for transfer
18:46:32  <jez9999> probably need to re-apply the patches in the communityIN on a weekly basis
18:46:36  <dih> people dont just write that drivel for decoration
18:46:47  <jez9999> also if the author didnt update the patch to be compatible it couldnt go in
18:47:05  <dih> jez9999 you can discuss your "IN' in #jez_out
18:47:13  <Mirrakor> dih: I'm perfectly fine if you give me keywords :)
18:47:21  <Rubidium> jez9999: so you force people to start over with their games every week, just to get bugfixes?
18:47:28  *** lobster_MB [~michielbr@] has quit [Quit: This computer has gone to sleep]
18:47:29  <dih> Mirrakor: you had the keyword all the time

18:47:35  <jez9999> force?
18:47:36  <dih> you just did not use your thinker :-P
18:47:38  <jez9999> heh
18:47:38  <Mirrakor> my Problem is that I try to translate it back and then search for another keyword
18:47:50  <Dominik> have you ever tried applying more than 3-5 patches to a working copy?
18:48:02  <Mirrakor> no I searched for things like "exchange" and got 0 results :/
18:48:03  <jez9999> if the bugfix makes the game incompatible with a previous build, that's exactly what they have to do with the trunk
18:48:03  <Rubidium> jez9999: just removing/adding patches when people have not updated them causes savegames to be incompatible between 'releases'
18:48:04  <dih> <-- has
18:48:14  <Rubidium> *unless* you start adding savegame compatability code like a mad man
18:48:16  <jez9999> well yeah that would be a last resort
18:48:25  <jez9999> but i guess occasionally it would happen
18:48:38  <yorick> it happens all the time in trunk

18:48:44  <dih> Bjarni!

18:48:46  <Rubidium> jez9999, from personal opinion: s/occasionally/usually/
18:48:47  * dih was first
18:48:49  <jez9999> the aim is to have a good functional game, not so much savegame compatibility
18:48:58  <Rubidium> jez9999, from personal experience: s/occasionally/usually/
18:48:58  * yorick made a typo at first ;(
18:49:02  <peter1138> A[A[Ad savegames and newgrfs and ...).
18:49:11  <dih> jez9999: go to the ChrisIN page
18:49:30  <Rubidium> jez9999: without savegame compatability people will whine like hell and you would generally not get a wide user base
18:49:47  <jez9999> they do have compatibility
18:49:49  * Sacro is fairly wide :(
18:49:57  <jez9999> they just finish their previous game in the previous version :-D
18:50:00  <Rubidium> MiniIN started to gain momentum once the people got assured that savegames could be loaded in later versions of the MiniIN.
18:50:14  <Rubidium> jez9999: so you force people to play with bugs that are fixed in a newer version.
18:50:31  <jez9999> as i said before, i hope incompatibility wouldnt happen often
18:50:42  <yorick> it does in chrisin
18:50:43  <Rubidium> and quite a lot of people tend to play games over weeks, month or years
18:50:43  <jez9999> if certain patches were unreliable that would probably be a candidate for not committing them
18:50:55  <Dominik> why don't you just start your own "patched version" for a start and if it runs well you could make it into the kind of project you're talking about.
18:51:11  <yorick> and get a community
18:51:19  <Rubidium> jez9999: the after about 1 month of inclusion in MiniIN 50-80 % of the patch authors stopped maintaining their patch because "it is in MiniIN"
18:52:05  <jez9999> well, yeah, it would be nicer if there were some devs prepared to work on the trunk as well as a 'cutting edge' version
18:52:09  <jez9999> many projects have such a setup
18:52:18  <jez9999> with openttd there is the trunk and cutting edge isnt really maintained
18:52:55  <jez9999> if it were people wouldnt need INs
18:52:57  <Rubidium> jez9999: too few good developers and too little free time for the good developers

18:53:13  <jez9999> Rubidium: ahh, 'good' developers :-)

18:53:20  *** yorick is now known as Q
18:53:28  <Rubidium> jez9999: any idea *how* many custom versions of the Linux kernel there are?
18:53:29  <jez9999> 'good' being subjective
18:53:44  <jez9999> Linux?
18:53:48  *** L is now known as Sacro
18:53:59  *** Q is now known as yorick
18:54:00  <Rubidium> jez9999: that has a 'stable' and 'IN' version
18:54:26  <Rubidium> and *many* *many* different custom flavours of that vanilla stable version because the IN doesn't contain what they like
18:54:53  <jez9999> linux is vastly more complicated than openttd, and that is a bad comparison
18:54:56  <Rubidium> just because their stuff doesn't get (or isn't) into the linux kernel
18:54:59  *** Dominik [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:55:43  <yorick> jez9999, as said may times before, set up openjezTTD
18:55:51  <jez9999> when i say vastly, i mean about 10,000 times more
18:56:08  <Rubidium> jez9999: then show me a project being as complex as OTTD that has the setup you want
18:56:17  * jez9999 searches google :-)
18:56:18  <Rubidium> or rather, show me at least 10
18:56:22  <jez9999> 10?
18:56:25  <jez9999> that's not fair :-)
18:56:28  <Rubidium> why?

18:56:55  <yorick> thousands
18:57:07  <jez9999> cPanel has a stable and EDGE
18:57:18  <Rubidium> OpenTTD too
18:57:22  <Rubidium> 0.6 and trunk
18:57:39  <jez9999> well i think openttd trunk is a bit too conservative
18:57:44  <jez9999> i wouldnt call it edge
18:57:50  <yorick> ok, go maintaining your own
18:57:55  <yorick> and stop complaining here
18:58:16  <yorick> get to #jez_out, and get your community there
18:58:20  <Noldo> consevative in what way?
18:58:32  <yorick> not many patches committed
18:58:52  <Bjarni> <jez9999> well i think openttd trunk is a bit too conservative <-- what do you mean?
18:59:31  <yorick> Bjarni, get yourself a copy of the logs
18:59:37  <Rubidium> jez9999: cPanel cannot be compared with OpenTTD because cPanel is much bigger than OpenTTD. It's even proprietary
19:00:08  <jez9999> bigger?>
19:00:19  <jez9999> so, openttd is an even better candidate for an edge version
19:00:33  *** SmatZ [] has joined #openttd
19:00:51  <Rubidium> jez9999: there is a paid staff; there isn't a paid staff for OpenTTD
19:00:57  <jez9999> i'd also say Firefox has quite a few patches committed
19:01:03  <jez9999> although it is more conservative than i'd like
19:01:04  * Belugas thinks that edge version sounds like laboratory in jez9999's vocabulary
19:01:13  <Rubidium> Firefox is also HUGE and has paid staff
19:01:22  <Sacro> Rubidium: like your mum
19:01:24  * Sacro hides
19:01:38  * Maedhros doesn't see how the fact that OpenTTD is smaller than cPanel means it should be more unstable
19:01:52  <jez9999> it should be easier to keep stable
19:01:53  <jez9999> less to review
19:02:15  <jez9999> and anyway it doesnt have the be the main trunk, it can be a branch labeled 'UNSTABLE AS HELL' for all i care
19:02:23  <Maedhros> heh. have you ever tried to track down a desync?
19:02:32  <jez9999> you wouldnt need to.
19:02:40  <jez9999> if it breaks, you take the trunk and reapply patches until it breaks
19:02:49  <jez9999> when it breaks, that patch is at faulkt
19:03:14  <Rubidium> jez9999: have you ever tried to make a desync reproducable enough to test it that way?
19:03:29  <jez9999> you wouldnt need to
19:03:34  <Rubidium> why?
19:03:35  <jez9999> because it would be called 'unstable' :-)
19:03:54  <jez9999> that's the idea of edge versions
19:04:06  <Belugas> lol
19:04:29  <Rubidium> so the idea of an edge version is NEVER making it stable?
19:04:33  <Belugas> that is really a funny way to solve stuff :D
19:04:41  <jez9999> no, but the idea is that it isnt a priority
19:04:48  <jez9999> the priority is new and exciting features
19:04:51  <jez9999> and improvements
19:04:57  <Rubidium> jez9999: that means NO stables
19:05:06  <jez9999> depends how you define stable
19:05:16  <jez9999> maybe not stable enough to hold an openttdcoop multiplayer
19:05:20  <jez9999> but that's not the focus of the build
19:05:22  <Rubidium> well, something that doesn't crash and desync every few minutes

19:09:05  <yorick> paxdest
19:09:20  <Rubidium> because it will NEVER lead to a stable, because the priority is new and unstable features, not making it stable in any way
19:09:34  <Rubidium> and a RC would mean some kind of stableness
19:09:35  <jez9999> why do you place so much importance on stability?
19:09:45  <dih> lol
19:09:46  <jez9999> that's what trunk is for
19:09:47  <stillunknown> Because it is important.
19:09:54  <jez9999> not in an edge build

19:10:03  <jez9999> the odd crash is ok
19:10:08  <Belugas> game that always blow up is a very good feature...

19:10:15  <jez9999> and it wouldn't happen much anyway.  most patches arent *that* bad
19:10:21  <Belugas> Hey, do not need to bur report it, it is EDGE!
19:10:40  <jez9999> no, bug report it, but the difference it's in the edge, and not in the trunk
19:10:41  <jez9999> see?
19:10:43  <dih> sounds like jez had a wee bit too much of MS
19:10:43  <stillunknown> Obscure crashes are hardly desire-able.

19:11:13  <Belugas> if you did, you would not say stuff like you do
19:11:14  <Rubidium> the big problem about INs is that people do not complain about bugs and/or crashes

19:11:23  <Rubidium> or at least not complain as much
19:11:35  <yorick> dih: true

19:13:37  <dih> ^^
19:13:43  <yorick> multiple
19:13:44  <dih> M$
19:13:50  <Bjarni> memory errors?
19:13:55  <Bjarni> what's what?
19:13:58  <jez9999> Bjarni: he probably means page faults
19:13:59  <Bjarni> I forgot :(
19:14:02  <yorick> very small soft windows!
19:14:17  <stillunknown> I mean a bit that didn't hold it's value, or something like that.
19:14:18  <yorick> breaks easily :)
19:14:34  <Rubidium> jez9999: actually stillunknown knows the difference between memory errors and 'page faults'
19:14:52  <jez9999> so do i
19:14:57  <yorick> bjarni doesn't
19:15:00  <yorick> heh
19:15:01  <Bjarni> ...
19:15:19  <blathijs> Actually, page faults are supposed to happen IIRC, while memory errors means you need to get new hardware :-)
19:15:19  <ln> !inrajB
19:15:32  <jez9999> blathijs: sigh, it sucks when you have to explain jokes
19:15:51  <yorick> @votekick
19:15:59  <stillunknown> In some cases you actually want to create massive amounts of page faults.
19:16:10  <Bjarni> I said that I forgot what "memory errors" is.... indicating a memory error
19:16:17  <jez9999> :-)
19:16:24  <Bjarni> but you guys appears to miss that point :/
19:16:30  <yorick> Quite.
19:16:34  <jez9999> Bjarni: comedy doesnt work in here
19:17:21  <blathijs> Bjarni: Woops :-)
19:17:39  <stillunknown> jez9999: The fact remains that in C(++) you have to be very careful, and even the thought of letting bugs slip is not good.
19:17:41  <yorick>
19:17:44  *** Dominik [] has joined #openttd
19:18:12  <stillunknown> Not to mention merging with mainline becomes a huge problem.
19:18:15  <jez9999> stillunknown: i take the point, but i think it could be managed without having the level of strictness that trunk has.
19:19:40  <Rubidium> jez9999: really got no idea how much work it is to hunt bugs
19:19:46  <Rubidium> and especially to hunt desyncs
19:20:05  <Belugas> no, he does not, since he just offer patches, no bug fixes...
19:20:22  <dih> lol
19:20:27  <Belugas> maybe if he did, his opinion would be VERY different
19:20:41  <Dominik> you're still discussing that ridiculous idea?
19:20:43  <Rubidium> the best way to improve your 'goodness' status is fixing bugs
19:20:52  <jez9999> i guess chrisIN is pretty close to what i want, just could do with being more democratic :-)
19:21:05  <jez9999> and also chrisIN will probably die sometime, and with a committee it would be less likely to
19:21:09  <jez9999> so they're the two main points
19:21:17  <Rubidium> jez9999: START you IN
19:21:29  <jez9999> still based around 1 person
19:21:38  <Rubidium> well... find someone who wants to help you
19:21:45  <Belugas> well... find some good souls :)
19:21:54  <jez9999> mm
19:22:04  <Rubidium> 3 persons are not enough to keep an IN running with 30+ patches applied
19:22:29  * dih agrees
19:22:38  <Belugas> Let see... chris, gonozo and jez
19:22:40  <Belugas> that is 3 :)
19:22:48  <dih> lol
19:22:49  <Dominik> hey jez9999, i'll help you!

19:25:49  <henkie> maybe a self-learing thingie
19:25:55  <henkie> i would call it SkyNet
19:26:00  <dih> lol
19:26:05  <Belugas> you'll havge better chance of learning through multiplayer games :)

19:26:13  <henkie> SkyNetAI?
19:26:20  <dih> worse

19:26:35  <dih> look at noai

19:27:34  <dih> then play that and give peace

19:59:54  <Bjarni> lol?
19:59:56  <dih> as if that would help :-P
20:00:15  <ln> Bjarni: for example, "Vet du vem _som_ bor hÀr?"
20:00:40  <Bjarni> maybe Sacro's boyfriend is a sadomasochist and that's why Sacro cries
20:00:53  <Bjarni> or maybe Sacro is
20:00:57  <dih> in which case Sacro would enjoy it
20:01:13  * dih just does not want to know
20:01:17  <Bjarni> a cry of joy
20:01:21  <Bjarni> well that's possible
20:01:34  * dih puts on a life suite and jumps
20:01:57  <Bjarni> <ln> Bjarni: for example, "Vet du vem _som_ bor hÀr?" <-- that's not an indirect question (or Danish for that matter)
20:02:11  <dih> that is not indirect danish?
20:02:28  <ln> Bjarni: Jeg vet, men jeg taler ikke så fint danske.
20:02:29  <Bjarni> but I guess it's possible to use "som" in an indirect question
20:03:23  <Bjarni> <ln> Bjarni: Jeg vet, men jeg taler ikke så fint danske. <-- it's better than some of the people who applies for Danish citizenship o_O
20:03:25  <ln> Bjarni: but my point is: in swedish it is wrong to omit that "som", i.e. "Vet du vem bor hÀr?" is wrong.
20:03:40  <ln> \o/
20:04:05  * glx points Bjarni and dih to the topic
20:04:21  <Bjarni> I think I would say "Ved du hvem der bor her?"
20:04:52  * dih points out to glx that he did not use another lang
20:05:12  <Bjarni> but maybe dih failed to use UTF-8
20:05:18  <dih> did not
20:05:31  <glx> no but I see lot of non english words
20:05:38  <dih> yes? where?

20:05:52  <dih> HA
20:05:58  <glx> oups sorry dih
20:06:02  <Bjarni> it would appear that he is studying Danish for some reason

20:06:13  <dih> i forgive you :-P

20:06:29  <Bjarni> why not?
20:06:36  <glx> then why using it?
20:06:42  <Bjarni> it's a nice language
20:06:48  <Bjarni> I use it on a daily basis
20:06:53  <glx> for danish people yes
20:06:54  <ln> glx: to shock bjarni
20:06:57  <dih> eny language could be considered a nice language
20:07:02  <dih> appart from swiss german
20:07:03  <glx> but ln is not danish
20:07:03  <Bjarni> no
20:07:30  <Bjarni> <dih> eny language could be considered a nice language <--- it wouldn't take long to make a list of exceptions
20:07:39  <Bjarni> but it would take forever to make it complete

20:08:13  <dih> that that is even unpleasent to speack

20:08:31  <Bjarni> :P
20:08:44  <dih> <german swearing sensored>

20:10:33  <Bjarni> it doesn't sound Welsh at all
20:10:45  <dih> they never write what they say

20:12:43  <Bjarni> I have that on a shirt
20:12:46  <Bjarni> the name I mean
20:12:48  <Bjarni> not the question
20:12:49  <orudge> "Rubidium"?
20:12:51  <orudge> stalker.
20:12:59  <Bjarni> err
20:13:13  <Bjarni> actually I have a shirt with the whole periodic table
20:13:17  <orudge> Ah, well
20:13:19  <orudge> that's not so bad, then.
20:13:23  <Bjarni> and the radioactive elements glow in the dark :D
20:13:29  <dih> hello orudge
20:13:32  <orudge> if you were to go around wearing a shirt saying "orudge", it'd be a little bit disturbing
20:13:34  <orudge> Hello dih
20:13:49  <Bjarni> it was actually a present but I might have bought it myself if I had seen it in a shop
20:14:42  <Bjarni> "put orudge in the Oven" <-- now that would be disturbing to put on a shirt
20:14:55  <dih> hehe
20:15:02  <Bjarni> basically that's why I don't have a shirt like that
20:15:05  <dih> what is black and knocks on the glas from the inside
20:15:10  <orudge> a dead baby?
20:15:11  <dih> baby in a microwave

20:16:29  <dih> frog in a blender running for it's life :-P
20:16:33  <orudge> Canadian French is vaguely weird
20:16:35  <glx> it's closer to the "original"
20:16:38  <orudge> from the little of it I heard when in Toronto
20:16:46  <dih> Belugas: that is way out
20:16:49  <dih> nasty
20:16:51  <orudge> (which was a fair bit more than I expected to hear, I must admit)
20:16:52  <dih> yuck

20:17:20  <glx> they still use some 17th century words
20:17:23  <ln> Belugas: maybe it was a tourist from france.
20:17:30  <Bjarni> lol
20:17:34  <dih> Belugas: what should your kid think of you ^^
20:17:56  <Bjarni> "bad daddy"
20:18:10  <dih> yeah
20:18:13  <dih> you bad daddy
20:18:15  <dih> baaaaad

20:19:10  <Belugas> and we do not have included as much english words as you do.  although i do not know if it's good or bad...
20:19:13  <Bjarni> :P
20:20:09  <Bjarni> including English words in a language that's not related to English is likely a bad thing
20:20:14  <glx> Belugas: worse you adapt english expressions in french

20:27:17  *** phin [] has joined #openttd
20:27:28  <Belugas> dih, of course it's not an english word.  That was how our "brillant" Ministry of French Sanity decided that CDROM should we written.  By using phonetic writing.  Which is an insanity, in my view
20:27:46  <dih> :-P
20:27:53  <dih> talking of phonetics
20:28:12  <Belugas> the only good stuff they come up with is the "Courriel" word.  For EMail.  Courrier Electronique -> courriel.  Nice one
20:28:17  <Ammler> is the the binary openttd the only one which is plattform dependend, so if you like to have a cross plattform portable bin, you need just openttd.exe and openttd?
20:28:18  <dih> [dai’hi: drəl]
20:28:22  <dih> :-)
20:28:39  <Diadem> 36/46 countries and only 5 min left

20:28:54  <glx> Belugas: or clavardage for chat
20:29:01  <Belugas> true
20:29:07  <Belugas> forgot that one :)
20:29:16  <glx> I like this word
20:29:27  <Belugas> but "butineur" for browser was a real laught
20:29:40  <glx> "navigateur" here
20:29:47  <Belugas> better :)
20:29:53  <Belugas> by far
20:31:18  <dih> and Ammler: yes - you only need the different executables
20:31:38  <Ammler> no problem to rename them?
20:31:51  <Bjarni> damn
20:31:53  <Bjarni> out of time
20:31:59  <Bjarni> You got 41 out of 46 European countries. <-- didn't finish :(
20:32:53  <Bjarni> my biggest problem was spelling all the names in English
20:34:16  <Bjarni> in fact I missed Luxenbourg (or however you spell it) because I couldn't figure out how to spell it :(
20:34:28  <dih> Ammler: nope
20:34:28  <Sacro> Luxembourg
20:34:35  <Bjarni> ...
20:34:36  <Bjarni> damn
20:34:53  <dih> Bjarni: i am dissapointed
20:35:02  <dih> i write such a readme and nobody reads it :-(
20:35:12  <Bjarni> I know
20:35:36  <Bjarni> it should be named "read me and go to jail" and a whole bunch of people from the internet will read it
20:36:35  <Bjarni> hey
20:36:38  <Bjarni> this is an insult
20:36:43  <Bjarni> 15% miss Denmark
20:36:58  <Bjarni> only 13,5% miss Iceland
20:37:05  <Bjarni> like Iceland is more important or something
20:37:25  <Prof_Frink> People remember the supermarket
20:38:09  <Bjarni> Herzegovina <-- this is a name I got right in the like 5th attempt :s
20:38:40  <Bjarni> almost 60% miss that one.... the question is how many knows it but can't spell it :P
20:39:18  <Bjarni> 1,7% miss France
20:39:41  <Bjarni> nobody should miss the big countries like France, Germany and England

22:55:20  <SmatZ> people here who use Fedora... all my admire goes for you!
22:56:22  <Sacro> oh?
22:58:10  <SmatZ> I am having hard times with it :-x
22:58:24  *** dih [] has left #openttd [Leaving]
22:58:29  *** dih [] has joined #openttd
22:58:35  <Sacro> hehe
22:58:38  <Prof_Frink> < Sacro> Use Arch.
22:58:38  <Sacro> SmatZ: Arch!
22:58:46  <dih> debian
22:58:50  <dih> gentoo
22:59:21  <SmatZ> I have to use Fedora because we use it in school and I want to have as little compatibility problems as possible :)
22:59:33  <Sacro> use CentOS then
22:59:42  <Sacro> all the power of RHEL
22:59:47  <Sacro> without being a testbed for new stuff
23:00:11  <dih> yes
23:00:14  <SmatZ> :)
23:00:15  <dih> centos is pretty good
23:00:22  * SmatZ uses Gentoo
23:01:06  <peter1138> CentOS still has the drawback of being RPM based.
23:01:07  * SmatZ googled for CentOS

23:16:00  <Diadem> Which directory should I play newgrf files?
23:16:04  <Diadem> I can't browse it seems
23:16:39  <mrfrenzy> data
23:16:46  <Ammler> Diadem: mydocs/.openttd/data/
23:16:56  <glx> Ammler: wrong
23:17:03  <Ammler> :-)
23:17:06  <Ammler> its a mix
23:17:07  <Diadem> Ah ok
23:17:08  <Diadem> got it
23:17:19  <Diadem> thanks
23:18:09  <Ammler> how is it called in windows? OpenTTD ?
23:20:17  <Diadem> for me? D:/Games/OpenTTD/data :)
23:20:52  <glx> better put them in mydocs\openttd\data
23:21:12  <Sacro> hehe
23:21:15  <Sacro> D:/
23:21:18  <Sacro> D:>
23:21:22  <glx> that way you can have multiple openttd versions, but only one dir for grfs
23:23:13  <Diadem> Hmmm
23:23:21  <Diadem> mydocs? where do I find that? :)
23:23:55  <Ammler> Diadem: depense on your local settings
23:24:06  <glx> c:\documents and settings\<username>\...
23:24:09  <Diadem> ah got it
23:24:17  <Diadem> You meant *that* mydocs
23:24:23  <Diadem> Didn't know Ottd put stuff there
23:24:29  <Diadem> annoying.. I hate programs who spam my c-drive
23:24:39  <glx> mydocs are on d:
23:24:46  <Ammler> yep, OTTD is cool
23:27:04  <Ammler> it you think grf is spam, you shouldn't install them
23:28:03  <peter1138> Unsolicitied commercial email from ottd!
23:29:41  <Diadem> Ammler: I didn't mean that
23:29:43  * Sacro solicits peter1138
23:30:01  <Diadem> Call me old-fashioned, but I'm off the opinion that programs and games should keep track of their settings and savegames etc in their own directory
23:30:06  <Diadem> not at some other random place on your hard-drive
23:30:32  <peter1138> acceptable with dos, but modern OSes are multi-user
23:30:40  *** Dominik [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:30:52  <Diadem> Not mine
23:30:57  <Diadem> I have a "Touch my pc and die" policy
23:31:00  <Sacro> ahh  a windows user
23:31:16  <peter1138> quite
23:31:18  <SmatZ> ^_^
23:31:33  * Sacro likes his ~/.openttd{,-svn,-beta} folders
23:31:40  <peter1138> i have a 'touch my pc and all my stuff is locked away from you' policy
23:31:54  <peter1138> well, assuming no boot cds are used...
23:31:57  <Sacro> i have a 'touch my pc and get infected' policy
23:32:03  <peter1138> with aids
23:32:08  <Prof_Frink> Heh, my stuff is mainly ~/src/openttd/*
23:32:10  <Sacro> or worse
23:32:15  <Prof_Frink> bad aids?
23:32:18  <Sacro> bloody hell

23:33:28  <Sacro> and skype staticqt

23:55:00  <Diadem> wow how annoying
23:55:06  <Diadem> those newgrf trees don't go invisible
23:56:09  <Ammler> why do you include tree grf and like to have them invisible?
23:56:21  <Diadem> I didn't, the game did
23:56:30  <Ammler> but you can set a patch setting
23:56:31  <Diadem> (multiplayer game)
23:56:37  <peter1138> there's no reason for them no to
23:56:39  <peter1138> +t
23:56:57  <Diadem> I have the patch setting on
23:57:00  <Diadem> but trees are still visible
23:57:10  <Diadem> (in the #openttdcoop game)
23:57:27  <peter1138> transparent or just normal?
23:58:46  <Diadem> normal
23:59:52  <peter1138> well then
