00:00:05  <Roujin> something broke in a file not altered by the patch oO
00:00:42  <SmatZ> :)
00:01:01  <SmatZ> you will need more includes probably
00:02:54  *** planetmaker [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:03:06  <Roujin> that could be... but the error somewhat disturbs me: multiple types in one declaration oO
00:03:42  <Roujin> maybe that particular revision was broken... retrying with another one ^^
00:04:03  <Roujin> and it works :P
00:04:29  <Roujin> aha, now i need some more includes
00:05:32  <Roujin> since a header file was split in between :)
00:07:51  <Roujin> awesome
00:08:02  <Roujin> current trunk, wohoo ^^
00:08:25  <Roujin> so... anyone interested in a rct style game menu?
00:08:46  <Yexo_> Roujin, you mean a screen following one vehicle?
00:08:50  *** Yexo_ is now known as Yexo
00:09:10  <Roujin> nope, jumping to preset locations
00:09:19  <Roujin> where preset = signs, alphabetically
00:09:27  <glx> like ctrl-center_view_on_vehicle Yexo?
00:09:29  <Roujin> also, signs are not drawn while in the game menu
00:09:58  <Yexo> glx, I didn't know that was already possible :P
00:10:09  <Yexo> but that was indeed what I ment
00:11:10  <Roujin> so basically, you set up a nice intro game, place signs labled 'a' through 'x' in the locations you want to show, save, rename to opntitle.dat and place it in the /data dir, thats it
00:11:43  <Yexo> sounds cool, but well, I don't care much about the title screen, as I don't look at it for long
00:11:46  *** Ammller [] has joined #openttd
00:11:51  <Roujin> oh yes, and there's a patch option for the duration between jumps (in game days; 0 = turn off)
00:11:53  *** lobster [~michielbi@] has joined #openttd
00:12:56  <Roujin> to be fair, i have to credit wolf01 for the idea and initial work. ;)
00:13:26  <Roujin> ok, one answer so far, being "i don't care" - other opinions?
00:13:58  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: smatz * r12537 /trunk/src/newgrf_config.h: -Cleanup: comment newgrf_config.h a bit
00:14:14  *** SmatZ [] has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
00:14:20  <Roujin> :(
00:15:41  <Roujin> any other devs still here?
00:16:26  <Roujin> besides SmatZ who cowardly fled from my question?
00:16:27  *** Ammler [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:16:52  *** Diadem [] has quit [Quit: Gone]
00:17:29  <Yexo> seems everyone is fleeing :P
00:18:23  <Roujin> dang, i hoped for a more positive response...
00:21:39  <Yexo> Well, I think it's a cool feature, but for me, I still have the default intro
00:22:08  <Yexo> busy playing with paxdest and yapp
00:22:44  <Roujin> well, my patch won't change anything if you have the current intro file ^^ it only jumps if there are signs in the savegame
00:24:06  <Roujin> but maybe it's time for a new intro.. i mean there are quite some new features since that game was made. and when we're at it, why not include the patch i made and have it jump around to show different features? :P
00:24:11  <Roujin> rivers...
00:24:45  <Yexo> like the intro competition held in january?
00:25:20  <Roujin> yeah, i thought about getting in contact with littlemikey, who held that competition... but he's inactive since february :(
00:25:42  <Yexo> have you tried #openttdcoop?
00:26:36  <Roujin> nope... will they be interested in holding such a contest?
00:26:47  <Roujin> hmm.. well maybe...
00:27:23  <Roujin> they could be showing off their fancy rail designs with something like that ^^
00:27:37  <Yexo> I should have explained myself better, I was asking if you looked for littlemikey on #openttdcoop
00:27:54  <Roujin> ah
00:27:59  <Roujin> well no.. will do
00:28:38  <Yexo> openttdcoop usually plays with a lot of grfs, so that's not suitable for an intro screen
00:31:02  <Roujin> hows that bot command...
00:31:08  <Roujin> @seen LittleMikey
00:31:08  <DorpsGek> Roujin: LittleMikey was last seen in #openttd 10 weeks, 0 days, 10 hours, 17 minutes, and 14 seconds ago: <LittleMikey> I'm off too, see you all
00:31:34  <Roujin> well, yep. he definately went "off". oO
00:31:43  <Roujin> to mars or something...
00:32:25  <Roujin> same time in #openttdcoop, guess he's gone for good...
00:32:44  <Yexo> he might turn op sometime, but for all we know that may be next year
00:32:46  <Yexo> or never
00:35:10  *** Eddi|zuHause2 [] has joined #openttd

10:34:47  <SpComb> no GSoC for OpenTTD? :(
10:37:07  <ln> why would there be?
10:38:45  <ben_goodger> well, there are some pretty obvious areas that could do with it
10:39:06  <peter1138> ...
10:39:13  <ben_goodger> the most obvious I can think of is 32bpp
10:39:17  <peter1138> nothing to stop people working on those areas
10:39:28  <peter1138> 32bpp works perfectly :D
10:39:30  <ben_goodger> indeed not, but gsoc makes people work on them more
10:39:58  <ln> ben_goodger: but does gsoc support projects whose copyright holder and legal status is unknown?
10:40:15  *** roboboy [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:40:24  <ben_goodger> ¬.¬
10:40:50  <ben_goodger> it's now in debian contrib [sinbin] exclusively because it requires the old graphics files
10:41:11  <peter1138> and nothing at all to do with the dubious origins
10:41:47  <ben_goodger> afaik
10:44:26  <peter1138> does GSoC include graphics data files?
10:44:30  * peter1138 suspects not
10:44:46  <ben_goodger> hm
10:45:13  <peter1138> i don't know, but i'd imagine it's more of ... a code thing.
10:45:15  *** Maedhros [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
10:45:22  <ben_goodger> quite
10:45:27  <ben_goodger> ok, let's see
10:46:21  <ben_goodger> there's [afaik for all] the rivers thing, that needs testing and stabilising; newPBS, same; AI
10:46:49  <peter1138> pbs is done, pretty much
10:46:55  <peter1138> ai is already being worked on
10:46:59  <peter1138> rivers... fine
10:47:31  <ben_goodger> yes.. that doesn't mean it can't be improved significantly [my copy gives a big warning on start that says "works only for X mode of transport"
10:47:49  <peter1138> what, with noai?
10:48:19  <ben_goodger> I don't know what it's called. I press "enable new AI [beta/something]" and it presents that
10:48:27  <ben_goodger> that's on 0.6.0beta2, I believe
10:48:27  <peter1138> well that's old and obsolete
10:48:43  <peter1138> noai has been in development for a while, but separately
10:49:12  <ben_goodger> ok, I've now lost my openttd installation
10:49:17  <peter1138> hah
10:50:20  <ben_goodger> it was on my desktop last week! !.!
10:50:30  <ln> i was able to compile trunk in ~23 seconds while experimenting with overclocking.
10:50:39  <ben_goodger> good grief

10:51:44  <Belugas> blame GSoC for that :D
10:52:35  <ben_goodger> oh, it was beta1
10:53:31  <ben_goodger> meh
10:55:48  <peter1138> well the AI's not been changed
10:56:12  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: truebrain * r12538 /branches/noai/ (14 files in 4 dirs):

10:56:12  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: [NoAI] -Codechange: rewritten ai_threads.cpp, to work with Fiber class. Reduces code duplication, and should fix all the stupid asserts we had with newgames and dying AIs
10:56:12  <CIA-1> OpenTTD:  -NOTE: now my head spins.. 24 hours of working with threads/fibers is bad for health :p Tnx glx for the testing!
11:06:12  <Eddi|zuHause2> wtf is a "fiber"?
11:06:30  <ben_goodger> a fibre, badly misspelled so as to not confuse obese people
11:07:19  <ben_goodger> same with liter, meter, gram, program, etc
11:07:35  <peter1138> it's like a thread but cut down

12:11:23  <Diadem> Is there a way to conveniently add trains to lists?
12:11:31  <Diadem> Like all trains servicing station x
12:11:53  <peter1138> you can see which trains stop at a station
12:11:56  <peter1138> in a list
12:12:02  <peter1138> but no explicit grouping
12:13:45  <Eddi|zuHause2> click on the station, and then on the little train icon
12:13:53  <peter1138> yarly
12:13:59  <hylje> NO WAI!
12:14:47  <Diadem> And then Eddi|zuHause2?
12:14:53  <Diadem> Then I can send them all to depot, but not to a group
12:15:11  <keyweed> Diadem: don't think there's any other way then dragging
12:15:19  <keyweed> almost like windows
12:15:19  *** nzvip [~svip@] has joined #openttd
12:15:35  <peter1138> you can group vehicles with shared orders easily
12:15:44  <peter1138> but not just because they stop at the same station
12:15:58  <keyweed> true, but i always think about shared orders when it's too late already :P
12:16:17  <peter1138> heh
12:16:30  <peter1138> i never think not to
12:18:27  <SpComb>      Byou mean you actually play OpenTTD?
12:18:37  <peter1138> i do
12:19:53  <bowman> about that, why isn't the replace option available in the stations list? :)
12:22:14  *** Ammler [] has joined #openttd
12:24:00  *** Singaporekid [] has joined #openttd
12:24:24  <peter1138> because replacement only work on 'real' groups (or the other two options)
12:25:35  <bowman> mhm
12:25:55  <bowman> I see there is already a feature request
12:25:56  <peter1138> there'd be *loads* of checks required all the time if 'virtual' groups were used to
12:26:33  <peter1138> with groups, we can check if one number is the same as another number
12:29:02  <bowman> a shortcut for creating a group with all vehicles for a station would suffice
12:31:12  *** frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
12:31:13  <peter1138> well, go ahead ;)(
12:31:54  <Yexo> bowman, what would that button do when some vehicles are already in a group?
12:32:07  <bowman> cant a vehicle be in multiple groups?
12:32:08  <Diadem> I manually dragged them now :)
12:32:20  <Diadem> But it would be a nice feature to have really
12:32:55  <peter1138> no, they can't
12:33:30  <bowman> manual grouping becomes problematic in big games with a 1000+ vehicles hehe
12:33:58  <Yexo> not if you use shared orders and "add all vehicles with shared orders"
12:34:10  <hylje> shared orders and groups go together
12:34:12  <bowman> ah theres an option for that?
12:34:24  <Yexo> under manage vehicles in the groups window
12:34:27  <bowman> k
12:34:41  <Diadem> Yeah that's a life saver if you have 150 vehicles with the same orders :)

15:42:40  <blathijs> To whom should I complain^Wask for advice about the configure script?
15:43:32  <Rubidium> in what area?
15:44:43  <blathijs> Rubidium: svn blame says it's you, but svn log can't seem to find that revision (7604)
15:45:11  <blathijs> Rubidium: When you set a personal dir, make install also tries to install scenarios into the personal dir of the user running make install
15:45:52  <blathijs> Which is mostly unwanted IMO (will end up installing scenarios into root's homedir I guess) and breaks on Debian buildd's, because their homedir is /nonexistent
15:46:17  <Rubidium> hmm
15:48:04  <blathijs> I guess a seperate ./configure option for that would make sense (there is already a seperate INSTALL_PERSONAL_DIR variable in the Makefile, which gets set to PERSONAL_DIR now)
15:49:11  <blathijs> Ah, the revision svn log refused to show me was in the makefilerewrite branch :-)
15:49:29  <blathijs> And the log says it's "semi-proper install functionality"
15:49:49  <Rubidium> blathijs: 7604 was in branches/makefilerewrite (or whatever way it was written back then)
15:50:47  <Rubidium> blathijs: from the log it looks like I copied the behaviour directly from what was trunk back then
15:51:20  <blathijs> Don't remember this being in there, but doesn't really matter
15:51:37  <blathijs> Shall I just add a --install-personal-dir option?
15:52:04  <Rubidium> the first question is whether the current behaviour is actually correct
15:53:05  <blathijs> Ie, we could also remove the INSTALL_PERSONAL_DIR stuff alltogether you mean?
15:53:15  <Rubidium> yup
15:53:23  <blathijs> The current behaviour is, at least for Debian packaging, unwanted
15:53:29  <blathijs> and for any packaging I guess
15:53:42  <blathijs> The only use for this is end users running make install themselves
15:53:47  <blathijs> or something like that
15:54:07  <blathijs> Did we have search paths or stuff like that already?
15:54:20  <blathijs> Ie, does openttd look in /usr/share and ~ for scenarios now?
15:54:30  <Rubidium> hmm, seems like 0.5 only creates the directories, but never copies something to there

15:56:51  <Rubidium> blathijs: now I think about it the copying with make install to the homedir is bogus
15:57:05  <peter1138> bug! in 0.6.0!
15:59:55  <blathijs> Ah, openttd offers to play scenarios from /usr/share only if you don't have a scenario dir in your personal dir
15:59:58  <blathijs> which makes sense
16:00:25  <blathijs> people wanting to work on their own scenarios and also play the default want should either copy them or keep browsing around, I guess

17:39:26  <Ammler> well, you could rm src/*

17:40:19  <Eddi|zuHause2> a copy of the original files is in .svn

17:40:36  <hylje> there's also those other VCSes supported by openttd, hg and git
17:40:38  <Eddi|zuHause2> this is used by svn diff and svn revert
17:40:42  <hylje> which store the whole repository locally
17:40:59  <hylje> rather than just the latest and a working copy

17:44:24  <Eddi|zuHause2> no, but find will find it

19:45:44  <dragonhorseboy> this been like the third time anyhow
19:46:22  <peter1138> warning of missing newgrfs?
19:46:25  <peter1138> doing what?
19:46:36  <peter1138> or rather when and how?
19:47:09  <Belugas> loading a game that requires grf that you do not have?
19:47:18  <peter1138> that's the usual cause, yes
19:47:33  <dragonhorseboy> download 0.6.0 zip .. extract it into a new folder .. open openttd.exe for the very first time ... it keep warning of missing newgrfs (no they're not t1gr.grf etc)

19:48:52  <dragonhorseboy> its been doing that ever since I've downloaded 0.5.7 then one 0.6.0-beta and then also 0.6.0

19:49:04  <Roujin> g'day
19:49:04  <peter1138> now that's imaginary
19:49:06  <dragonhorseboy> like why is it trying to look for any newgrfs when it shouldn't
19:49:16  <glx> so you may have an openttd.cfg already
19:49:21  <peter1138> however, it's probably using your openttd.cfg in My Documents

19:52:41  <dragonhorseboy> ammler...either on desktop if I'm still working on them or C:\mystuffs to keep them
19:53:11  <hylje> if we go into that, i rather have a proprietary binary format containing everything

23:05:35  <Bjarni> <jez9999> why is OpenTTD more popular in Europe than the US? <-- we would have to make a survey in order to answer that one
23:06:03  <Bjarni> putting up a poll on the forum wouldn't really give a decent result so we simply don't know the answer to the question
23:06:19  <Bjarni> besides
23:06:27  <Bjarni> why should we care?
23:07:05  <Bjarni> I mean why should we care for the reason. It's not like we would add killer robots or aliens if that is what it takes to become popular in the US
23:08:13  <SmatZ> :)
23:09:03  <jordi> Bjarni: still it's an interesting question
23:09:10  <Bjarni> yeah
23:09:23  <Bjarni> but your guess at the answer is as good as mine
23:09:24  <jordi> I don't think he expected an answer to it
23:09:26  <Bjarni> well
23:09:29  <Bjarni> maybe XD
23:10:12  <jordi> anyway, the makefile fixes are in Debian now, and it can be built for all architectures
23:11:02  <peter1138> m68k!
23:11:09  <Bjarni> I guess it could be that a lot of players heard about the game from friends and then it more or less by random got more players in Europe then more people talked about it in Europe so the growth of players in Europe increased
23:13:40  <jordi> Bjarni: maybe the American public is used to other kind of entertainment, more action or so, due to the kind of mass-media culture they have there. I don't know; generalising like this is silly, but it's also true that the American and European cinema productions are quite different.
23:14:00  <jordi> and directors like Woody Allen are totally ignored in their own country, but praised in Europe
23:14:12  <jordi> so there's some kind of difference after all
23:15:00  <Bjarni> when they made that Mr. Bean movie they aimed at the US marked (that's why he travelled there) and it was a disaster in the US (both in the movie and in the cinemas)
23:15:14  <Bjarni> however as a big surprise they liked it in Australia
23:15:25  <Bjarni> and nobody knows why
23:16:30  <jordi> heh
23:17:04  <Bjarni> maybe some advertising in the US would help
23:17:32  <Bjarni> however since we don't gain money from gaining more players it wouldn't be sane to invest in advertising anywhere
23:17:55  <Sacro> Bjarni!
23:18:10  <Bjarni> maybe Sacro has the answer
23:18:15  <Sacro> he does!
23:18:48  <Bjarni> the Americans are too stupid to figure out what the game is all about?
23:19:03  <Sacro> well no, Microprose was a british company
23:19:09  <Sacro> and sold mainly over Europe
23:19:21  <Sacro> so I doubt the game had much exposure over in the US
23:19:30  <Sacro> what with it mainly being British
23:19:38  <Bjarni> that could be a reason
23:19:39  <Sacro> ie british vehicles a
23:20:08  <Bjarni> but that can't explain the Hungarian interest in the game
23:20:29  <Bjarni> I mean the Hungarians picked OTTD as best free game of the year
23:20:31  <Bjarni> twice
23:21:37  <Prof_Frink> Bjarni: Get someone to do a writeup of openttd for DPotD or similar

23:23:34  <Prof_Frink> Debian Package of t'day
23:23:40  <Bjarni> <Sacro> Bjarni: what else is there to do in Hungary? <-- play other games. Considering the country was under strong communistic influence in the TT era and the communists didn't believe in copyright for software they could just copy whatever game they wanted
23:24:56  <jordi> they could play freeciv and try to win the game only using Communism as the ruling style. :)
23:25:14  * jordi also maintains Freeciv in Debian </nb>
23:25:42  <peter1138> the hungarians are revolting!
23:26:25  <jordi> Bjarni: btw, jokes about stupid Americans are not really funny, it's like a meme, but there's so many really dumb people in Europe who wouldn't know how many countries are in the Union right now...
23:26:39  <jordi> peter1138: the Hungarians are no more!
23:26:55  <jordi> so, Freeciv has a Spanish nation, but also a Catalan nation
23:27:11  <Sacro> the union?
23:27:13  <Sacro> which union?
23:27:13  <peter1138> bjarnis jokes are never funny
23:27:25  <jordi> One has Valencia as one of its major cities, while the others have ValÚncia
23:27:30  <jordi> and that isn't fun. :)
23:27:33  <jordi> Sacro: er, EU?
23:27:39  <Sacro> 17 countries
23:27:46  <Bjarni> at one time my brother tried playing freeciv in MP and he thought he did good (could beat the computer at a hard level in normal civ) and all of a sudden somebody started building wonders that indicated that he had like twice the amount of techs... and this is bad when the wonders were in the industrial era
23:27:50  <jordi> Sacro: is that also a joke?
23:27:56  <Sacro> nope
23:27:58  <dih> :-)
23:28:05  <Sacro> that's what i learnt at school
23:28:18  <Bjarni> turned out that he played against some pretty hardcore games (might even have written the game as it took place at that uni around that time)
23:28:23  <jordi> Sacro: well, wrong.
23:28:29  <jordi> it was 15 not that long ago
23:28:45  <jordi> then went to 25 recently, and to 27 even more recently
23:29:06  <jordi> Bjarni: wow
23:29:19  <Bjarni> <jordi> Bjarni: btw, jokes about stupid Americans are not really funny <-- actually the point was more like trying to guess what Sacro would state as a reason but it turned out that he was actually serious this time
23:29:21  <jordi> Bjarni: I'm always ashamed of playing these gameso nline
23:29:49  <jordi> there's always really hardcore players around
23:29:54  <jordi> and make me feel very stupid
23:29:56  <Sacro> Bjarni: i'm not as stupid as you may think
23:30:08  <Bjarni> I know
23:30:24  <Bjarni> to be honest I don't think you are stupid at all
23:30:32  <jez9999> i did think it was more popular in Europe because we have way more trains than over there
23:30:54  <jez9999> but i dont think so, i dont tend to use trains anyway, the fun of the game is inherent.  anyway as someone said before it's probably because Microprose didn't push it in the US
23:30:58  <jez9999> (TT)
23:31:15  <jez9999> i wish microprose still existed
23:31:19  <Bjarni> I think the arctic and desert sets were aimed at the US marked as they are full of US trains but it kind of sucks that they have the same top speed :/

23:48:26  <dih> night
23:48:37  <Bjarni> expanding EU from 15 to 25 countries were a really hot topic. Those in favour of doing it said that the people over there wouldn't come here
23:48:45  <Bjarni> and now we have Polish workers everywhere
23:49:03  <Bjarni> we can deal with that (more or less)
23:49:19  <Bjarni> the problem is that the criminals also figured out that they could come here
23:49:52  <Bjarni> so now we have an increase in armed robberies and murders due to people coming from Eastern Europe
23:50:20  <SmatZ> it sounds like people from the Easter Europe were all murderers and robbers :-x
23:50:30  <SmatZ> I miss "some" in your sentence
23:50:40  <Bjarni> and we went from nearly no pocket thieves to a severe issue due to organised import of trained thieves
23:50:42  <SmatZ> ... due to SOME people...
23:50:44  <jez9999> Bjarni: heh, polish workers everywhere :-)
23:50:51  <jez9999> i thought the UK were the only ones with that problem
23:51:43  <Bjarni> <SmatZ> it sounds like people from the Easter Europe were all murderers and robbers :-x <-- I didn't write that. I wrote "the criminals" which is (hopefully) a small group compared to the whole population in Eastern Europe
23:52:27  <jez9999> im guessing a ton of money is flowing into Poland at the moment
23:52:28  <jez9999> cant last forever
23:52:37  <jez9999> seems pretty unfair to other countries though
23:52:51  <Bjarni> actually it's a problem for Poland because they export their workforce
23:53:08  <Bjarni> so they have to hire workers from the east of Poland
23:53:27  <Bjarni> the country as a whole is losing money on this
23:54:06  <jordi> jez9999: a lot of money flowed into Spain and Poland
23:54:19  <jordi> that money is going to Estonia, Latvia and so now, though.
23:54:23  <jordi> Which is the fair thing.
