00:00:38  <Ammler> maybe they like to provide warranty?
00:00:41  <TinoDidriksen> Isn't that part of the GPL itself? Pretty sure there's such a section further in it.
00:01:08  <Tekky> Tino: yes, it is....
00:01:38  <TinoDidriksen> Indeed. Section 11 and 12 is that disclaimer.
00:02:05  <Tekky> but section 1 requires an additional "conspicuous" dislaimer.
00:02:10  <Tekky> dislaimer = disclaimer
00:02:13  <Ammler> means, you cant sold GPL software with warranty?
00:02:27  <Tekky> Ammler: no, you can....
00:02:41  *** Zorni [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:03:01  <TinoDidriksen> Conspicious is legal terms for UPPER's required to stand out from the normal text, basically.
00:03:27  <TinoDidriksen> Plain texts use UPPER CASE, rich texts use bold face or similar.
00:05:53  <Ammler> good developers give their software WITH warranty, not?
00:06:15  <Ammler> so disclaimer should ususally not be needed.
00:06:20  <TinoDidriksen> One would think so, but it is very very rare to find warranty on software.
00:06:56  *** Sacro_ [~ben@adsl-87-102-39-137.karoo.KCOM.COM] has joined #openttd
00:07:07  <TinoDidriksen> Software simply has too many factors for misbehavior to make warranty worth it. Insurance companies would faint...
00:07:09  <ln> Not showing a disclaimer of warranty is a kind of strange requirement... If you don't, who is going to sue whom?
00:07:29  <ln> OTTD team sues OTTD team?
00:07:47  <TinoDidriksen> The requirement is to show a disclaimer of warranty.
00:07:57  <TinoDidriksen> Or a warranty.
00:07:58  *** Fuco [~dota.keys@] has quit [Quit: Quit]
00:08:18  <TinoDidriksen> But one is in the GPL, so that's taken care of by default.
00:08:31  <ln> Errr.. Yes, that's what I meant, although wrote the opposite. (A disguise.)
00:08:46  <Ammler> and what is the default?
00:08:55  <Ammler> disclaimer of warranty?
00:08:56  *** Sacro [~ben@adsl-87-102-39-137.karoo.KCOM.COM] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:09:15  <TinoDidriksen> Yeah
00:09:23  <Ammler> sad
00:09:32  <TinoDidriksen> I actually don't know of any software that has warranty...
00:09:56  <Ammler> that implies that "default" dev makes bad code.
00:09:59  <ln> Purely theoretically, *who* could sue OTTD team for the fact that they don't show a disclaimer despite required to do so by GPL?
00:10:19  <TinoDidriksen> Devs of grfcodec could.
00:10:32  *** elmex [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:11:14  <Ammler> TinoDidriksen: <-- "Warranty is supplied by Jud Informatik+Grafik GmbH..."
00:11:15  <ln> Mmm.. Why not.
00:11:40  <Ammler> I guess, it is quite usual for paid software, isn't?
00:12:41  <TinoDidriksen> There's service contracts, uptime contracts, and all such things, but not actual warranty.
00:13:04  <Ammler> well, we fixed software bugs for free mostly.
00:13:08  <TinoDidriksen> Typo3 doesn't specify what warranty they have, just that they have some...
00:14:09  <Ammler> it isn't give by TYPO3, it is the web developer who gives warranty.
00:14:40  <Ammler> TYPO3 != Jud Grafik+Internet
00:15:17  <TinoDidriksen> They probably mean backup service then.
00:15:49  <peter1138> Ammler's clearly on another planet.
00:15:54  <Ammler> :-)
00:17:01  <Ammler> peter1138: don't you supply warranty for your work?
00:18:04  <TinoDidriksen> Warranty implies liability for bugs, which simply does not happen in software - dev houses will fix bugs, but they damn well won't pay if a bug wipes data.
00:18:41  <Ammler> also Dell won't do that, if I lost my data, they just give me a new HD
00:19:55  *** fjb_ [] has joined #openttd
00:20:55  <TinoDidriksen> E.g., given the wrong parameters, OTTD could format your hdd despite that not being part of the documented behavior. Warranty would imply that you're liable for such a malfunction - but you have no way to prevent it as you can't control the environment OTTD runs in 100%.
00:21:34  <Ammler> warranty can't include such things
00:21:43  <Ammler> quite obvious
00:22:22  <TinoDidriksen> You'd be amazed...USA litigation happy people can find you liable for damn near anything unless you disclaim almost any and all warranty.

02:34:03  <roboboy> if I have pengfx and the original grfs, will openttd ask me on startup which to use even if the md5 on the orriginal grfs arent right?

07:38:31  <Phantasm> Belugas: Well, yes and no. With the given lines of OpenTTD intending to deliver the original TTD behaviour enchanced, but not really changing anything other than clear bugs, the fix is proper. However, the original behaviour (in 256x256 map) might not be so perfect... ;P
07:45:33  <Phantasm> Belugas: Power stations never shutting down is quite strange... Also banks should somewhat shut down at times as well, but overally their number could just go up, depending on town sizes. And then lies the question.. Should the original industry count be the unserved balance or not. Well, of course the game doesn't really show the real case as at start there is no transportation whatsoever going, even though plenty existed at that time. While, serving most ...
07:45:39  <Phantasm> ... industries can effectively make the number of industries grow higher as the amount of dying industries doesn't matter on the amount of new industries. And then there are plenty of different aspects to think about etc... Anyway, that is about what OpenTTD is wanted to be instead of bug. Anyway, the clear bug part is fixed.

08:58:30  <Celestar> Bjarni: the EU has actually AGREED on something?!

09:00:31  <Bjarni> Spain wanted Finland to import more food from warmer countries
09:00:35  <Bjarni> go figure
09:00:51  <Bjarni> they didn't agree on that one though

09:18:56  <Celestar> it's the most commonly used system
09:20:41  <Bjarni> yeah
09:20:59  <Bjarni> and it's the highest voltage used in Europe
09:21:22  <Bjarni> meaning power loss in the wires will be the lowest (compared to the other systems(
09:21:28  <Bjarni> *)
09:21:33  <Celestar> yeah
09:21:59  <Bjarni> since power loss/meter depends on I^2, while it's independent from voltage
09:22:21  *** bleepy [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

09:22:43  <Bjarni> also you can make a system where the distance between transformers is greater

09:24:47  <Bjarni> that's about a locomotive with two pantographs. Both pantographs works with 1,5kV and 20kV (I never knew anybody used 20kV)
09:25:10  <Bjarni> 1,5kV needs both since the current is too high for just one pantograph (it will melt)

09:27:41  <Celestar> and having 4 systems in a single locomotive is not bad
09:27:50  <Brianetta> My server has faulty trains enabled
09:28:04  <Brianetta> I joined to spectate for a bit
09:28:13  <Brianetta> and it looked like every single train was broken down
09:28:21  <Brianetta> The one that wasn't, did as I watched
09:28:30  <Forked> I'd ask for my money back =p
09:28:42  <Brianetta> peter1138 requested reduced breakdowns
09:28:51  <Brianetta> seriously, what's high breakdowns like?
09:28:58  <Brianetta> Do trains ever get past the platform end?
09:29:20  <peter1138> Brianetta, it was late in the game, and lots of stuff had closed down.
09:29:22  <Bjarni> Brianetta: high breakdown means all vehicles breaks down all the time if they never reach a depot ;)
09:29:38  <peter1138> Therefore there were a lot of vehicles stuck doing nothing and not getting serviced, and also they were old models.
09:29:49  <peter1138> So of course they'll break down :)
09:29:59  <Brianetta> I've been on plenty of old trains
09:30:43  <Eddi|zuHause2> 99% reliability should mean something like 1% chance to break down during a year
09:31:00  <Brianetta> To this day, I have never, ever been on a train that broke down
09:31:05  <Celestar> I have
09:31:08  <Celestar> several times
09:31:09  <Bjarni> I have
09:31:18  <peter1138> They were probably serviced too :)
09:31:24  <peter1138> Brianetta, will you update to 0.6.3-RC1 ?
09:31:36  <Bjarni> it drove 300 meters and then we were stuck for more than an hour
09:31:40  <Eddi|zuHause2> i have been on a train that was late because it broke down
09:31:41  <Brianetta> I've also never been half way to London to suddenly find the train in the depot, up on jacks
09:32:00  <Brianetta> peter1138: Didin't know it existed.
09:32:05  <Bjarni> eventually we returned to the platform and got a new train
09:32:24  <peter1138> Anyway, the reaction to breakdowns was certainly mixed. Either "Yay, a challenge", or "Oh God not breakdowns"
09:32:42  <Brianetta> If they were less frequent we wouldn't mind
09:32:49  <Celestar> hm
09:32:56  <Eddi|zuHause2> i have seen trams break down quite a number of times
09:33:05  * Celestar wonders how many cities have normal gauge trams
09:33:17  <Eddi|zuHause2> which is very unfortunate, as the following trams have no possibility to overtake
09:33:18  <Brianetta> I regularly travel on ageing Pacers and, of course, the HST.  Being old doesn't mean it keeps conking out.
09:33:28  <peter1138> Brianetta, it was released last night, so it's not surprising you didn't know :)
09:33:44  <Eddi|zuHause2> Celestar: i'd say about 50% of those that have trams at all
09:33:45  <Brianetta> peter1138: I probably will, because of the desync issues
09:33:51  <Bjarni> Copenhagen and Odense (both in Denmark) used to have standard gauge trams. However they were closed since politicians wanted everybody to get cars instead
09:34:03  <peter1138> It would be a good test to see if everything's really fixed :)
09:34:54  <peter1138> I was watching a YouTube clip the other day where an American pronounced it "Copen-hay-gen".
09:36:04  <Bjarni> how would you say it?
09:36:10  <peter1138> I don't know :o
09:36:33  <Bjarni> o_O
09:36:40  <Brianetta> That's the English pronunciation
09:36:46  <Bjarni> I know how to say London
09:36:49  <Brianetta> Like Cologne for Köln
09:36:50  <Celestar> Bjarni: that's smart.
09:37:02  <Bjarni> so the least you could do is to be able to tell the name of my capital
09:37:25  <Celestar> Munich also tries to get people into cars, especially the Greens. They are against the construction of new subways.
09:37:40  <Brianetta> In fact, English speakers pretty much murder Germanic city names
09:37:52  <Brianetta> MÃŒnchen (:
09:37:55  <Brianetta> Small munch
09:38:01  <Celestar> er?
09:38:05  <Brianetta> Nibble
09:38:07  <Bjarni> lol
09:38:14  <Celestar> MÌnchen comes from Mönch, which means Monk :P
09:38:28  <Brianetta> Yeah, I know the ch was part of the diminutive (:
09:38:28  <Bjarni> you are a monk?
09:39:01  <Bjarni> :p
09:39:51  <Celestar> Bjarni: I don't live _in_ Munich
09:39:58  <Celestar> I live in a small suburb.
09:40:06  <Celestar> which is actually about 3000 years old
09:40:11  <Eddi|zuHause2> <Brianetta> Like Cologne for Köln <- the romans screwed that one up :p
09:40:27  <peter1138> Gah, hungry already.
09:40:47  <Brianetta> Eddi: We're still guilty of being invaded by Normans, who all stopped speaking Norse in favour of French before invading.  Buggers.
09:40:58  <Celestar> yeah
09:41:00  <Celestar> hm..
09:41:18  <Bjarni> Norse is way easier to understand
09:41:18  <Celestar> Tracking employees with RFID-tags .. nice technique (=
09:41:45  <Brianetta> [10:41] <Bjarni> Norse is way easier to understand
09:41:45  <Brianetta> ...says the man with a j in his name!
09:42:02  <Eddi|zuHause2> i have a J in my name :p
09:42:06  <Bjarni> Brianetta: ???
09:42:23  <Brianetta> A J like that is *extremely* north European
09:42:34  <Bjarni> Bjarni is actually a perfectly valid name in Norse
09:42:36  <peter1138> "Bjarni" is apparently pronounced how it's written.
09:42:41  <Doorslammer> Jeddi?
09:43:07  *** Eddi|zuHause2 is now known as Eddi|zuHause
09:43:08  <Brianetta> Doorslammer: which bit of "like that" puzzled you?
09:43:22  <Doorslammer> You'd be surprised how much :P
09:43:30  <Brianetta> (:
09:43:53  <Doorslammer> Bah, surprise badger and away etc.
09:43:54  <Brianetta> Bjarni: That's the point - it was pretty much obvious you'd find Norse easier to understand than French.
09:44:00  <Bjarni> I think it will be easy to be confused if you walk with your head the wrong way all the time
09:44:21  <Doorslammer> I walk into many lampposts
09:44:58  <Bjarni> that's not because you have your head the wrong way
09:45:04  <Bjarni> that's because you are drunk :P
09:45:05  <Doorslammer> Ah
09:45:09  <Brianetta> Doorslammer's nick reminds me of what I missed last time I went to Victoria Station to visit my grandmother
09:45:09  <Doorslammer> Lies

09:45:33  <Doorslammer> It's a shame my nick has absolutely nothing to do with trains but... :P
09:45:43  <Brianetta> You could always tell if you were late for your train by the door slamming rate.  It tailed off just before departure.
09:45:50  <Doorslammer> Fits nicely though

09:46:13  <Gekz> our slam
09:46:14  <TinoDidriksen> By Norse do you mean Norwegian? 'cause Old Norse is rather different.

09:48:02  <Gekz> >_>
09:48:08  <Bjarni> what?
09:48:19  <Doorslammer> Interesting to note Norse had a big influence on the Hebrides and other Scottish isles
09:48:37  <Bjarni> not to mention Scottish itself
09:48:45  <Brianetta> They did so enjoy invading
09:48:47  <Bjarni> it's quite interesting to watch Scottish TV
09:49:07  <Eddi|zuHause> icelanders had centuries worth of inbreeding, no wonder why the language was not affected by outside influence :p
09:49:30  <Brianetta> I live in Newcastle, which was routinely raided by the Danish, until at one point they just decided it was a bit far for plundering and set up a government.
09:49:40  <Brianetta> Danelaw was born.
09:50:18  <Bjarni> I know an old guy from Jutland. He went to London and started to speak with some girls in a pub (in Danish). His son noticed and walked up to them and told that it was his father and asked if they could understand them
09:50:21  <Brianetta> That lasted longer than you'd imagine.  We still have a Danish community.

09:53:52  <Gekz> basically
09:53:56  <Gekz> with added words
09:54:04  <Gekz> ie, you can read 1100 year old scripts
09:54:06  <Brianetta> like "Internet" and "lolcat"
09:54:06  <Bjarni> the grammar is a bit different
09:54:17  <Gekz> a bit
09:54:50  <TinoDidriksen> Because they've kept it that way intentionally. They're proud of their language and heritage.
09:54:50  <Gekz> not as much as say, middle english to english
09:54:50  <Gekz> modern english*
09:54:50  <Brianetta> Middle English is foreign to me.
09:54:52  <Gekz> it's foreign to most
09:54:53  <Tim> One question about the development-logic: Does it work like "0.6.2 is released, then it is being further developed (nightlys) and at some point called 0.7" or is it "0.6.2 is being developed, while the nightly branch is being developed too. 0.6.x is only being bugfixed, and at some time, alle the new features of the trunk are merged into 0.6.x and then 0.7. is released"???
09:54:54  <Brianetta> It's practically old German
09:55:08  <Brianetta> Tim: The latter.
09:55:24  <Brianetta> except no merging to 0.6.x
09:55:33  <Brianetta> trunk *becomes* 0.7
09:55:50  <Tim> The nightlys become 0.7?
09:56:02  <Gekz> he just said that.
09:56:05  <Brianetta> Nightlies, no; they're simply snapshots of trunk
09:56:08  <TinoDidriksen> Old branches remain stagnant.
09:56:10  <Brianetta> trunk as it is at 8pm each night
09:56:11  <Tim> well, okay
09:56:23  <Brianetta> trunk will be 0.7, then 0.8, then evenrually 1.0
09:56:32  <Brianetta> 0.6.0 was a trunk release
09:56:35  <Gekz> there will be no 0.9
09:56:41  <Brianetta> 0.6.1 was 0.6.0 with backported bug fixes
09:56:46  <blathijs> rather, at some time trunk is branched to 0.7, which receives bugfixes only for some time (while releasing RC versions) until the final 0.7.0 is released
09:56:51  <Tim> So 0.6.3 is only being released so there is a very stable 0.6.x - release, but has nothing to do with the further development of the game towards 0.7?
09:57:01  <blathijs> Tim: Yes
09:57:09  <Tim> Okay...
09:57:10  <Brianetta> It's feature-frozen
09:57:11  <Tim> :)
09:57:19  <Brianetta> but it has some nasty multiplayer bugs
09:57:36  <blathijs> Tim: 0.x.0 are the only releases with new features now, 0.x.n are always bugfix-only
09:57:41  <Brianetta> and since 0.7 will be a good while yet, that means there isn't technically a really stable release (:
09:57:59  <TinoDidriksen> That's the sane way of doing it, or you end up with actual forks every release.
09:58:07  <blathijs> Brianetta: Bugs with no fixes we can backport, or?
09:58:10  <Brianetta> cp: cannot create regular file `/home/autopilot/openttd-svn/bin/openttd': Text file busy

09:58:31  <Gekz> lol release candidate for bugfux
09:58:34  <Brianetta> Can't build openttd whilst the game's running
09:58:35  <Tim> Okay, thanks for clearing this up :)
09:59:04  * Brianetta unlinks openttd from the FS
09:59:07  <Brianetta> That should do it.
09:59:20  <Brianetta> Good job this isn't Windows
09:59:41  <Ammler> Brianetta: run the game somewhere else then ./bin
09:59:49  <Brianetta> In Windows, if a file's in use you can't do a thing with it.
09:59:56  <Brianetta> In Linux, you can just rm it.
09:59:59  <Brianetta> So I did.
10:00:22  <Brianetta> The file handles will continue to exists, and the file will be deallocated once they're all closed.
10:00:36  <Brianetta> In the mean time, I've built a new one.
10:01:46  <Eddi|zuHause> the question is, why doesn't the makefile do that in the first place
10:02:04  <TinoDidriksen> That's what make clean is for.
10:02:08  <Ammler> compatibility to windows?
10:02:26  <Brianetta> Ammler: No need.  It runs cp; that's not a Windows prog.
10:02:30  <Brianetta> cp is what fails
10:02:34  <Brianetta> rm first would fix it
10:02:39  <Eddi|zuHause> TinoDidriksen: no, "clean" does not remove the binary, only the intermediate files, which is exactly NOT what he wanted
10:03:05  <TinoDidriksen> ...then your clean is not clean.
10:03:36  <Eddi|zuHause> clean never removes the binary...
10:03:39  <TinoDidriksen> A normal make does a minimum recompile and link, which has no need to delete files and should not since if no changes are in the source file it won't redo that one.
10:03:40  <Ammler> doesn't cp work with mingw?
10:04:10  <Eddi|zuHause> Ammler: this has absolutely nothing to do with windows compatibility
10:04:11  <Brianetta> If cp does, why not rm?
10:04:25  <Tim> And another question, just to entirely understand the development-logic: I know that there are branches such as CargoDest. Is it so, that the developers of those take the current trunk and "copy" it, and then start modifying it, and synchronize it from time to time to the changes which happenend in trunk?
10:04:43  <Ammler> you could also do cp -f
10:04:53  <Brianetta> Tim: They have a branch, and they modify it in the (sometimes forlorn) hope that it'll be merged with trunk.
10:05:10  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, Tim, that's what branches are
10:05:28  <Brianetta> Ammler: no
10:05:29  *** thingwath [] has quit [Quit: It's all over.]
10:05:31  <TinoDidriksen> And make clean does remove binaries normally.
10:05:31  <Brianetta> cp --remove-destination
10:05:31  <Ammler> we update our servers with "make bundle && cp bundle/* $GAMEDIR -Rf"
10:05:59  * Brianetta doesn't care
10:06:13  <Brianetta> I upgraded extremely rarely
10:06:28  <Brianetta> This one hiccough was fixed by removing one file
10:07:03  <Brianetta> I upgrade so rarely that it's common for the entire Makefile system to be completely changed each time anyway
10:07:19  <peter1138> Gekz: It would be embarrassing to release 0.6.3, and then have to release 0.6.4 a week later because something was missed.
10:07:45  <Eddi|zuHause> *cough* *cough*
10:08:07  <Brianetta> If the post 0.9 branch still sin't considered done, you reckon there'll be a 0.10.0?

10:09:44  <Brianetta> 0.100.0
10:09:51  <Brianetta> It could go on and on
10:09:58  <Brianetta> "aargh it's not decimal"
10:10:25  <Celestar> Brianetta: 0.10.0 is a possibility
10:10:27  <Celestar> (=
10:10:54  <TinoDidriksen> Eh, just include the svn revision number in the version... or whatever. No doubt what's newer, but no need to bump version number as often.
10:11:05  <Celestar> hm ...
10:12:03  <Brianetta> That's just making lots of numbers
10:12:25  <Brianetta> If you're going to use the revision number, have r128733 for trunk and s127356 for stables

11:07:40  <TinoDidriksen> Wasn't about that. It does indeed need testing; I just consider x.y.z.r versioning to be more transparent and easier to work with as a developer.
11:08:49  <Rubidium> there isn't much difference between and 0.6.3-RC1
11:09:19  <Rubidium> only that the latter is more clear for people and that the former is used internally
11:15:02  <Ammler> is the testing release also from the compile farm?
11:15:20  <Rubidium> yup
11:15:38  <Ammler> nice :-)
11:15:58  <Rubidium> which made the release not much more than running two scripts and doing one commit
11:16:37  <Ammler> will futur stable also be from the farm?
11:16:45  <Ammler> e
11:16:50  <Rubidium> ofcourse
11:16:56  <Rubidium> that's why we made the thing
11:17:22  <Ammler> :-D
11:17:32  <roboboy> Can I suggest that the uninstallers text be changed to say that it is an uninstaller as it currently says installer. also I think the uninstaller should have a different icon to the games exe eg the normal icon with a no entry symbol on it or something to symbolise removal
11:17:43  <peter1138> We no longer have to wait for Bjarni to compile an OS X build, and then complain that his upload speed is so slow...
11:18:37  <Ammler> and now also your linux builds might be faster then those from packman suse
11:20:12  <Ammler> still no dedicated builds?
11:20:53  <Rubidium> dedicated builds were basically never used
11:21:15  <Ammler> I can remember someone asked for it for 0.6.2
11:22:22  <Ammler> not everyone likes to install the whole dev tools on his linux server...
11:22:36  <Ammler> (or is able to9
11:23:09  <Ammler> and as you can't run the full packs as dedicated...
11:23:21  <Rubidium> you can
11:23:29  <Ammler> don't you need SDL?
11:24:11  <Ammler> maybe I need to test that again...
11:24:36  <Brianetta> It used to work, but no longer
11:24:54  <Rubidium> that you might needs some libraries doesn't mean that the normal binary doesn't support to be run as dedicated server
11:24:56  <Brianetta> Now, if I try to run a binary I linked against SDL, it whines if I don't have the lib
11:25:09  <Brianetta> and my server doesn't have SDL at all
11:25:23  <Ammler> most server don't
11:25:26  <Ammler> have
11:26:10  <Eddi|zuHause> i presume installing sdl is less trouble than installing dev tools :p
11:26:26  <Brianetta> no
11:26:41  <Ammler> well, I would say optimal is installing dedicated build.
11:27:13  <Brianetta> There's no reason why you can't compile yourself a dedicated server on a machine other than the server itself.
11:27:42  <Ammler> that too :-)
11:30:02  <Rubidium> roboboy: as far as I can find out nsis has no support for setting the icon for the uninstaller
11:31:35  <roboboy> ok
11:33:52  <Ammler> maybe insead of packing the bundles in 3 different format (gzip,bzip2,zip), you could make a dedicated server.
11:33:55  <Ammler> instead
11:36:52  <Ammler> specially for archive, one (bzip2) would be enough, imo.
11:39:56  <Tim> At which time of day are the nightlys being compiled?
11:40:24  <Ammler> 18:00 UTC
11:40:53  <Ammler> at least trunk, dunno the others
11:40:56  <roboboy> Rubidium: check this page out for info on NSIS modern user interface options
11:41:56  <roboboy> I tried building a nsis installer for TTDPatch and it worked but was not the best it could be
11:42:27  <Tim> thx
11:42:53  <Brianetta> peter1138: Think it's possible to put UK waypoints into my bundle?
11:43:41  <roboboy> Brianetta: did you turn breakdowns off on the restart?

11:44:17  <Brianetta> but I've given them an additional 40 years each

11:56:09  <Brianetta> Ammler: I had plenty of stations; I just ditched newstatsw.grf
11:57:10  <Ammler> NewStations is not "just" a station grf, it is THE station grf :-)
11:57:27  <Brianetta> It no longer exists.
11:58:23  <Brianetta> Actually, I need ot do my banner graphic again
11:58:45  <Brianetta> since it has Blunck's work on it, and if he veer notices that he'll throw another hissy fit
11:59:04  <Ammler> :-)
11:59:22  <Ammler> well, you also need to replace the signals :-)
11:59:31  <Brianetta> why?
11:59:46  <Ammler> they are from him, iirc.
11:59:51  <Eddi|zuHause> those are GPL, though
11:59:56  <Brianetta> So?  Their license isn't in question.
12:00:00  <Ammler> those from openttd?.grf
12:00:10  <roboboy> infact the OpenTTD Credits says thankyou to him for them
12:00:42  <Eddi|zuHause> the parts that are integral to ttdpatch he released under GPL
12:00:47  <Ammler> ah, I thought, you drop his grf because of his questionable statements, not his license.
12:01:17  <Ammler> his license allow distributing...

12:08:57  <roboboy> wasnt it to do with the screenshots on consisting of main TTDP original features?
12:15:15  <peter1138> 0.6.3-RC1 will let me upgrade from 0.6.1!
12:15:17  <peter1138> (Not 0.6.2?)
12:16:26  <peter1138> Damn, I don't have the GRFs here :(
12:16:28  <roboboy> I did that but from 0.5.4 or something
12:17:14  <Brianetta> back
12:17:25  <Brianetta> So, yeah
12:17:32  <peter1138> I do now :D
12:17:46  <Brianetta> According to Blunck's newstations readme, redistribution wasn't a problem
12:17:47  <roboboy> so was his problem along my lines?
12:18:07  <Brianetta> roboboy: No; this is purely a legality thing
12:18:25  <roboboy> ok
12:18:54  <Brianetta> It was in that thread that Blunck clarified that the line in his readme, about the newgrf being "for Transport Tycoon with Patch" was not just descriptive, but intended as a licensing requirement.
12:18:57  <roboboy> but wasnt that his objection or was it actually that he produced them for TTDP?
12:19:13  <roboboy> ok
12:19:29  <Brianetta> So, although I could legally redistribute the newgrf, I couldn't legally run them on the server
12:19:39  <roboboy> doesnt eis_os have the same requirements
12:19:41  <Ammler> Brianetta: that is, because the GRF is older then newgrf support of OpenTTD
12:19:43  <Brianetta> Since it's his property, it's really his decision
12:20:00  <Brianetta> Ammler: Read what he said on that thread carefully.  You made the same assumption that I did.
12:20:53  <Brianetta> In any case, doubt has been cast on the legality of the license I was using, by the copyright owner himself.  So, I removed the newgrfs in question (including newships) form the set.
12:21:03  <Brianetta> It was easiest, and guaranteed legal.
12:21:44  *** Tim [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]

12:23:31  <Ammler> peter1138: well, the chat started before you joined...
12:23:49  <Brianetta> peter1138 knew the reasons anyway
12:24:04  <roboboy> but I dont bash OTTD unless a OTTD user bashes TTDP
12:24:11  <Brianetta> er
12:24:15  <Brianetta> bash the user, not the program
12:24:40  * Doorslammer bashes with bat
12:24:49  <Doorslammer> Kabong!
12:25:00  <Brianetta> Patch isn't for me.  It doesn't do the kind of multiplayer I enjoy, it doesn't do the kind of Linux support I enjoy, and it doesn't do the kind of big maps I enjoy.
12:25:03  <roboboy> or I usually bash the user but sometimes there is a bit of OTTD basing either unintentionally or intentionally
12:25:11  <Brianetta> That said, I'm sure it's a great product.
12:25:19  <Brianetta> I just don't ever play it.
12:25:36  <roboboy> I find I dont need the big maps and if I want mp its openttd
12:25:59  <SmatZ> roboboy: what do you miss in OTTD the most?
12:26:10  <Brianetta> I don't believe there's anything in Patch at the moment that I'm really missing badly in OpenTTD

12:26:48  <Brianetta> Ammler: Even then, I'm pretty nifty with regular signals
12:26:56  <SmatZ> roboboy: again? I never asked that
12:26:56  <roboboy> I was just thinking about it
12:27:06  <roboboy> you didnt but others have
12:27:18  <Tim> I really miss this feature in OpenTTD:
12:27:20  <peter1138> Regular signals are easy, when you use them like they're intended ;)
12:27:25  <Tim> *shamelessly advertising*
12:27:30  <roboboy> unless you do not know about the thing im thinking of
12:27:45  <Brianetta> peter1138: Bit of a bugger on single track lines with loops
12:28:00  <peter1138> roboboy, OpenTTD developers are not a hive-mind.
12:28:01  <Brianetta> A shame you can't pair up entrances and exits
12:28:12  <Brianetta> but PBS fixes that little issue anyway
12:28:37  <roboboy> I know but it spread a little bit between the devs
12:28:38  <Ammler> Tim: that is in Patch?
12:28:52  <roboboy> you know what im thinking of though peter1138
12:28:57  <Brianetta> Tim: That feature would not be needed if "sort by industry type" did that, instead of merely grouping by industry type.
12:29:09  <Tim> SmatZ	roboboy: what do you miss in OTTD the most?
12:29:11  <roboboy> or I think you do peter1138

12:29:32  <peter1138> roboboy, no, I have absolutely no idea actually.
12:29:34  <Tim> Though that might not be the thing i miss most... Doesn
12:29:37  <roboboy> hm
12:29:43  <Tim> Doesn't matter, was just advertising *g*

12:30:49  <Brianetta> You don't agree with banning Yorick?
12:31:17  <SmatZ> yes, I don't agree
12:31:40  <peter1138> He's not banned ;)
12:31:51  <SmatZ> ah ok :)

12:57:22  *** Tim [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
13:14:18  <roboboy> can waypoint sets be used as normal stations in openttd or are they still stuck to only waypoints? I think if not it might be an idea to change that behaviour since stations can have go via orders set
13:14:31  <roboboy> and be multi tiled unlike waypoints
13:15:52  *** Jezral [~projectjj@] has joined #openttd
13:17:00  *** Fuco [dota.keys@] has joined #openttd
13:17:07  <Ammler> some station sets like Canada has the waypoints as stations.
13:18:17  <roboboy> but uk waypoints are waypoints only
13:19:34  <Belugas> and as such they will remain, otherwise, there will be no need for waypoints
13:19:54  <Belugas> the real question is rather if ever waypoints willbe able to cover more than one tile
13:20:07  <Belugas> Phantasm, i've read your comments
13:20:18  <Ammler> there is indeed no need for waypoints since adjacent stations...
13:20:22  <Phantasm> :)
13:20:33  <Belugas> and as you guessed, we are not going to change original behaviours of industries
13:20:44  <Belugas> those are not bugs, but rather design decisions
13:21:00  <roboboy> and I feel now that stations can have go via options rather than either having old non-stop or ttdp non-stop that waypoints are useless
13:21:06  <Phantasm> Belugas: Not really a guess.. I have ended up finding that is they way things are done with OpenTTD.
13:21:17  <Belugas> Phantasm: and we will not change them in respecgt of newindustries grf, which are bond to the original behaviours
13:21:26  <Belugas> agreed :)
13:21:48  <Belugas> note that you can change the offending behaviour by means of a grf :)

17:10:16  <Ammler> guru3: empty depots
17:10:28  <guru3> ah :/
17:10:36  <guru3> i thought you could upgrade ones with trains in em
17:10:39  <guru3> then replace the engines :/
17:10:44  <Ammler> there is a patch, which also does that.
17:11:27  * Celestar wonders whether depots should be railtype-independent (=

17:16:15  <Eddi|zuHause> <Celestar> windows 7 will apparently boast an improved UI. <- didn't they promise that for every single last version, too?

17:16:55  <Forked> I wish they could make a server OS that didn't demand you had GUI on the console..

17:19:52  <Eddi|zuHause> in the forum, under a post by this strange "Batti5" person
17:20:21  <Eddi|zuHause> Celestar: i'd have associated "Medic!" with Starship Troopers
17:22:00  <Celestar> or that
17:22:07  <Celestar> poor movie
17:22:23  <Forked> there came a 2 and 3 of starship troopers.. I wonder how crap those are :)
17:22:28  <Eddi|zuHause> i just noticed that there is a "Starship Tropers 3"
17:22:43  <Eddi|zuHause> 2 was supposedly really crap
17:23:02  <Celestar> dunno I watched 1 and that was perfectly enough
17:23:03  <ln> Celestar: a great movie.
17:23:15  <Celestar> I quite disagree :D
17:23:26  <Eddi|zuHause> i kinda liked 1, when i watched it on video, but the TV version was very crippled
17:24:24  <Celestar> I only know the TV version

17:33:07  <Prof_Frink> jpm: Depends on your definition of familiar.
17:33:22  <Wolf01> I have a better question: why sometimes trains start not full with full load any and only one type of cargo?
17:33:32  <Prof_Frink> Just about every app I use on this computer is Qt, but I'm not a programmer.

23:26:33  <roboboy> hello
23:27:26  <Belugas> good evening (or morning)
23:27:28  <roboboy> If i do a local road reconstruction, will the town take over roads more quickly that are on its outer edge that another company owns?
23:27:34  <roboboy> morning for me
23:27:53  <Eddi|zuHause2> roads never change ownership
23:28:02  <Eddi|zuHause2> unless you buy out the company
23:30:22  <roboboy> I thiught the town took ownership over roads as it expanded
23:32:56  *** Gekz [] has joined #openttd
23:33:38  <Belugas> you are thinking wrong
23:33:56  <Belugas> unless it is new roads, town do not change ownership
23:37:12  <roboboy> so to build my track I need to wait until the owner of this company gets online so I can get them to remove a short stub of road from it
23:38:41  <fjb> If you are building a railway track at the same level just build over his road.
23:39:10  <fjb> If your track is crossing that piece of road.
23:39:59  <Belugas> or raise a bridge, or dig under
23:42:21  <roboboy> its kinda hard in the location
