06:58:53  <boekabart> Is there a function to calculate the 'exact' height somewhere in the middle of a tile?
06:59:16  <boekabart> smth like GetTileHeight( tilex, tiley, tile_pixel_x, tile_pixel_y) or so?
06:59:48  <boekabart> ... one that is smarter than just linearly interpolating the corner heights ...

08:19:42  <petern> Ammler, in that OpenTTD version is not necessarily the same string as the package version.
08:21:05  <Ammler> petern: it is obvious for you and maybe it was for me, but it doesn't need to be obvious for external packager...
08:21:40  <Ammler> at least it wasn't for the suse builder, I hope, he is able to handle that next time.
08:23:08  <Ammler> well, I wouldn't package testing builds anyway.
08:33:33  <petern> There is that...

08:52:33  <Brianetta> How does one create Makefile.bundle?
08:52:41  <Brianetta> I can't make install because that file doesn't exist
08:57:08  <Eddi|zuHause> Ammler: but not for an entire month, especially not with daylength 8
08:57:38  <Eddi|zuHause> Brianetta: shouldn't ./configure take care of that?
08:57:45  <Brianetta> Eddi: It didn't
08:58:07  <Ammler> configure needs makefile.bundle to create makefile
08:58:26  <Brianetta> Ammler: Apparently not.  I can delete Makefile, and configure will still recreate it.
08:58:37  <Brianetta> It still builds openttd, as well.
08:58:43  <Brianetta> exists
08:58:46  <Brianetta> but not Makefile.bundle
09:01:47  <Eddi|zuHause> *.in are the template files from the * file should be generated
09:01:52  <Brianetta> I know
09:01:59  <Brianetta> Something needs to process them
09:02:13  <Brianetta> I don't know what, though
09:02:21  <Brianetta> I've tried deleting conifg.cache
09:05:53  <Eddi|zuHause> well, then i have no further idea what could be the problem
09:06:23  <Brianetta> Neither do I, which is exactly why I came on here.

09:09:18  <Brianetta> That's not right
09:09:27  <Brianetta> I think that the tag is basically ballsed up.

09:11:29  * Celestar sighs
09:11:38  <Celestar> so much for global warming. it snows
09:11:55  <Brianetta> Global warming is the macro effect
09:12:03  <Brianetta> locally, you can get cooling
09:12:05  <Celestar> I wasn't dead serious you know (=
09:12:39  <Celestar> heh. it stopped :P
09:12:43  <Brianetta> If global warming really takes off, the Gulf Stream might divert, meaning a reduction of temperatures in the UK and a possible revival of our ski industry.
09:12:54  <Brianetta> That'd be cool.
09:12:57  <Brianetta> heh
09:12:58  <Brianetta> cool
09:13:08  <Celestar> er Brianetta .. you need mountains for a ski industry :P
09:13:30  <boekabart> scotland has high enough hills I suppose
09:13:31  <Vikthor> Celestar:You are in Muenchen?
09:13:33  <Brianetta> Celestar: Would you like to take a stroll in our Cairngorm National park?
09:13:54  * Brianetta was on a mountain just a couple of days ago
09:13:57  <Celestar> Vikthor: plentifully south of it for the time being, not far from the Austrian border.
09:14:21  <Celestar> Brianetta: I dunno. My home's elevation is already 2000ft (=
09:14:32  <Brianetta> Like Germany isn't all the same kind of land as as Berlin, the UK isn't all flat either
09:14:41  <Vikthor> ohh so already almost in the Alps?
09:14:59  <Brianetta> If your elevation is 200 ft, the mountains must all appear to be exactly the same size as ours.
09:15:12  <Celestar> Vikthor: yeah, in Garmisch, visiting family.
09:15:21  <Vikthor> aha GaPa
09:15:22  <Brianetta> It's not height above sea level that counts; it's how much higher you have to trudge.
09:15:31  <Celestar> Brianetta: well, the Zugspitz is pretty much 10000ft
09:15:34  *** daspork_ [] has joined #openttd
09:15:42  <Brianetta> What's that in real metres?
09:15:45  <Celestar> 3000
09:15:46  <Celestar> m
09:15:56  *** daspork_ [] has quit []
09:16:02  <Vikthor> that explains it, I was bit worried because snow in Muenchen could mean we would get it in Prague later
09:16:03  *** daspork [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
09:16:08  <Brianetta> That's a respectable height, and far in excess of what's required to be called a mountain.
09:16:13  <Celestar> and one of the few mountains that can be reached by railway (=
09:16:18  <Brianetta> We have two
09:16:30  <Brianetta> Snowdon has a railway to the top, as does Cairn Gorm
09:16:52  <Celestar> the Zugspitzbahn doesn't reach the top, only about 2600m or something
09:17:02  <Brianetta> They gave up
09:17:06  <Brianetta> before the top
09:17:17  <Brianetta> should have chosen a shorter mountain
09:17:56  <Celestar> 25% maximum slope
09:18:05  <Celestar> but it's 45 EUR a round trip :(
09:18:20  <Celestar> 1000mm gauge
09:18:46  <Brianetta>
09:18:56  <Brianetta> Got married near to this camera position
09:19:34  <petern> Eddi|zuHause, trunk?
09:19:43  <Eddi|zuHause> cargodest
09:19:46  <Brianetta> actually, that's not the valey I thought it was
09:19:50  <Brianetta> but it's nearby
09:20:11  <petern> Eddi|zuHause, ah right... well it feels like something fishy in Belugas' change :/
09:20:16  <Brianetta> Oh, it *is* that valley
09:20:24  <Brianetta> but on the other side of the water to where I was married (:
09:21:21  <petern> readme.txt:Release version: 0.6.3
09:21:29  <petern> Maybe your checkout is busted.
09:21:43  <Celestar> interesting catenary mounting:
09:21:59  <Brianetta> petern: svn says the files are OK
09:23:17  <petern> Was it a clean checkout or a switch?
09:23:45  <Eddi|zuHause> <Celestar> the Zugspitzbahn doesn't reach the top, only about 2600m or something <- around here we have the Brockenbahn, it reaches the top, but that top isn't nearly as high ;)
09:24:51  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause: it's a rag railways as well I guess?
09:25:11  <Brianetta> switch
09:25:13  <Eddi|zuHause> no... it's normal narrow gauge railway
09:25:26  <Celestar> oh
09:25:28  <Celestar> I see
09:26:14  <Celestar> Stuttgart has it's own rack railway :D
09:26:17  <Celestar> its
09:26:30  <Vikthor> the Pet??n funicular railway reaches the top, but that's only 327 m :D
09:26:57  <Vikthor> gradient is 29.5% though
09:27:22  <Celestar> nice gradient
09:27:41  * Celestar wonders what the maximum gradient is that normal railways use
09:29:20  <Eddi|zuHause>

09:31:07  *** mikl_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:31:24  <Celestar> .. apparently 7.9% for normal gauge
09:32:12  <Eddi|zuHause> someone told me that in norway they advertise some railway as the highest gradient conventional rail
09:32:40  <welshdragon> y
09:32:45  <Celestar> dunno
09:32:52  <welshdragon> that's bullshit
09:33:05  <Celestar> the 4% on Frankfurt - Köln can feel pretty badly :P
09:33:22  <welshdragon> the highest gradient conventional rail is in switzerland
09:35:38  <Vikthor> Celestar, yeah that's pretty interesting,  was in Aachen by car in August and the track has almost the same profile as Autobahn
09:35:52  <welshdragon> or even Peru

09:39:20  <Celestar> Vikthor: yeah :)
09:40:36  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause: the Brokenbahn is still steam-only?
09:40:51  <Eddi|zuHause> it says "almost steam only"
09:41:09  <Celestar> dunno, I've just read about it somewhere years ago :P
09:41:14  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, it's a tourist attraction, i don't think they scrap the steam engines any time soon :p
09:42:31  <Eddi|zuHause> they have also some diesel railcars, but those are usually used on the other lines
09:42:56  <Eddi|zuHause> and they have some regauged diesel engines, which were mainly intended for freight traffic
09:43:13  <Eddi|zuHause> but i have seen them used on passenger trains, too
09:47:27  * Celestar is going to have an ICE3 ride tomorrow ;)
09:47:58  <Eddi|zuHause> the only time i used an ICE was when i got it for free...
09:48:18  <Celestar> heh I pay 75 EUR round trip for Munich-Pasing to Köln Hbf.
09:48:34  <Celestar> which is *much* less than by car
09:48:50  <Eddi|zuHause> and even then not regularly, as they practically went orthogonal to the way i wanted to go
09:49:51  <Celestar> I've never managed to catch and ICE2 up to now
09:49:55  <Celestar> only 1, 3 and T
09:50:30  <Eddi|zuHause> there aren't that many ICE2, i suppose ;)
09:50:44  <Celestar> not in Munich
09:51:29  <Eddi|zuHause> they are used on routes where the splitting ability is useful, i assume... like Berlin - Ruhr area
09:51:48  <Celestar> the ICE3 usually runs everything that continues on Frankfurt - Köln NBS, the ICE1 runs everything that goes via WÌrzburg-Hannover and the ICE-T is used on the Berlin route (since it's 25 minutes faster than every other train due to tilting)

09:53:34  * Celestar sighs ... "girls"
09:54:13  <Eddi|zuHause> well, yes, you wouldn't pass through ThÃŒringen without tilting :p
09:54:31  <Celestar> nope, not really (=
09:54:48  * Vikthor just found out, that there is hg on the school computer, let's install cargodest :D

10:04:21  <Celestar> which idiot came up with the "Gesundheitsfonds" in Germany :S
10:05:39  <fjb> The same people who wish to introduce "Rentenfonds".
10:05:55  <MapperOG> wasn't it Ulla Schmidt?!
10:06:17  * Celestar thinks he needs to accelerate his plans to emigrate :S
10:06:52  <MapperOG> what a shame - I should know, I visited an info campang back when I was working for a health insurance company..
10:07:23  <Celestar> I hate all this state-driven stuff :S
10:08:34  <keyweed_> yes. doing it commerically is much wiser.
10:09:06  <keyweed_> since they moved to commercial health insurance my fees have been raised by 500% and my coverage halfed.
10:09:11  <keyweed_> *halved.
10:09:37  <Celestar> I'm effectively paying 550 EUR a month for health insurance
10:09:51  <keyweed_> oO
10:10:00  <keyweed_> woah. then i should not complain.
10:10:11  <Celestar> and I don't have any coverage except that what prevents immidiate death or maybe loss of limb
10:10:15  <keyweed_> unless you make somewhere near 10 000 eur a month
10:10:40  <Celestar> 3300 EUR gross
10:10:45  <Celestar> which is 1900 EUR net
10:11:08  <keyweed_> oO
10:11:15  <keyweed_> that's absurd
10:11:54  <keyweed_> i make about 2100 net and pay about 150/month and it does still cover the essentials
10:12:15  <Celestar> I don't get a PENNY for new glasses (I have 8 diopters ... )
10:12:47  <Celestar> apparently someone things not running around blind is a luxury
10:13:12  <Celestar> thinks*
10:14:26  <Eddi|zuHause> i currently pay around 60€ for health insurance
10:14:55  <Celestar> I also pay around 600 EUR a month for "retirement insurance" ...
10:15:00  <Eddi|zuHause> based on some totally imaginary assumption of an income ;)
10:16:58  <Celestar> but the 3300 EUR gross is not really gross. What my employer pays is 4000 EUR a month. 1900 EUR which I get. In other words, the state keeps over 50% of my income right away.
10:18:05  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, it's so funny ;)
10:18:08  <Celestar> yeah.
10:18:32  <Celestar> I mean if we even had a proper road and rail network, I don't even complain, but you cannot even get around this country.
10:18:52  <Celestar> We had 400km worth of traffic jams in Bavaria yesterday. It was a clear, sunny day.
10:19:18  <Celestar> so no "bad weather" excuses
10:19:42  <Celestar> there are no vacations starting or ending either.
10:19:46  <Vikthor> I am off to lunch, bye for now
10:19:51  *** Vikthor [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:20:17  <Eddi|zuHause> hm... i was listening to traffic report yesterday morning, everything was clear then. and then when i went back in the evening it was like "4km jam because of an accident, 3km jam because of an accident, 12km jam because of several accidents, ..."
10:20:18  <Celestar> so I'm kinda wondering whose throats all my money get stuffed into.
10:20:47  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause: 40km on the A8 Munich-Rosenheim without accident. 35km on the A9 Munich Nuremburg without accident.
10:20:57  <Celestar> it's just the the roads can't cope with traffic
10:21:02  <Eddi|zuHause> hm... no... it wasn't on that kind of scale here ;)
10:21:16  <Celestar> 25km on the A6 near Nuremburg.
10:21:22  <Celestar> 30km on the A99 around Munich..
10:21:36  <Celestar> ok there was a crash on the A99
10:21:44  <Eddi|zuHause> you can't imagine how traffic was around here, 15 years ago
10:21:51  <Eddi|zuHause> it significantly improved
10:22:11  <Celestar> are you anywhere near the A70/A73/A4 area?
10:22:20  <Eddi|zuHause> but maybe that is because everyone who owned a car went away as quickly as possible :p
10:22:36  <Eddi|zuHause> no... A4 is far south from here
10:22:59  <Eddi|zuHause> we have A9, A14, A38 here
10:23:09  <Celestar> ah
10:23:09  <Eddi|zuHause> where the latter is not fully complete yet
10:23:25  <Celestar> yeah, and some drunk idiot went for the H solution instead of the X solution?
10:23:45  <Eddi|zuHause> the what?
10:25:18  <Eddi|zuHause> finishing of the A14 probably caused the best improvement in traffic around here
10:25:51  <Eddi|zuHause> so all traffic towards Magdeburg doesn't have to go through Halle-Trotha anymore
10:26:26  <Eddi|zuHause> the B6 is practically empty now ;)
10:27:30  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause: initiall the A14 should be extended from Magdeburg to Hamburg and the A39 from Wolfsburg to Schwerin, with the two crossing somewhere (The X solution). Now, they're planning to connect Wolfsburg to Hamburg and Magdeburg to Schwerin, building two parallel highways about 50 km apart without any kind of interconnection.

14:34:42  <Eddi|zuHause> it will always attempt to go to platform 4, because the way is shorter, and it does not check if the platform is occupied
14:34:56  <Eddi|zuHause> this could be solved by a lookahead
14:35:30  <Ammler> Eddi|zuHause: you can do that with signals and different lengths
14:35:47  <Ammler> penalty is your friend :-)

14:37:43  <Eddi|zuHause> how would that help?
14:38:18  <Eddi|zuHause> the problem is exactly that there is no penalty for "train can't reach next destination from here"
14:38:37  <SmatZ> yapf has penalty for "last red signal"
14:40:04  <Eddi|zuHause> but there is no "last signal" anymore, with YAPP
14:40:38  <Eddi|zuHause> free platforms are now chosen by reserved state of the tile
14:40:57  *** Chrill [] has quit []
14:41:14  <Eddi|zuHause> but if i now have a short waypoint station, and a real platform behind it, the waypoint station is not reserved
14:41:26  <Ammler> Eddi|zuHause: different plattform lengths has also different penalties.
14:41:39  *** Volley [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
14:42:10  <Eddi|zuHause> so this lookahead would solve the problem with the reservation, as the pathfinder would consider the reservation behind the waypoint station
14:42:19  <Ammler> maybe you need to adjust the default values.

15:37:50  <FauxFaux> I've seen trains get negative income for delivering cargo, anyone else seen that?
15:38:06  <yorick> yes.
15:38:14  <FauxFaux> It was some orders screw up with transfers, I think.
15:38:19  <yorick> cargo can drop in value below 0
15:38:27  <FauxFaux> Heh, even better.
15:38:40  <Yexo> yorick: are you sure of that?
15:38:48  <yorick> I am quite sure of that
15:39:10  <yorick> if you keep the cargo waiting too long, it will make you lose money when you deliver it
15:39:12  <Eddi|zuHause> Aali: but... the trees are so lovely...
15:39:13  <FauxFaux> I expect it normally "rots" before that happens, though.
15:39:33  <Eddi|zuHause> plus, i did rather expect people to complain about the invisible station tiles :p
15:40:14  <yorick> FauxFaux: you mean passengers can rot inside their coaches?
15:40:32  <Eddi|zuHause> FauxFaux: it is not that the cargo has negative value, but the previously estimated value (at the transfer point) was higher than the final value
15:40:57  <Aali> yorick: game mechanics page at the wiki begs to differ
15:41:01  <Eddi|zuHause> so you still get paid, but the vehicle shows the difference between the expected and final value, which is negative
15:41:07  <Yexo> yorick: and so does the code
15:41:18  <yorick> maybe it's a cargodest-specific feature
15:41:33  <Yexo> with cargodest, you always have tranfers, so that is just a tranfer 'problem'

16:16:33  <Belugas> if it is missing, you would not be able to start the game
16:17:21  <Belugas> corrupted means you have somehow changed the grf itself.  but this would very unlikely be the cause of a crash
16:17:50  <nicky> kk
16:19:32  <Belugas> mmh... forums is slow of somehow blocked
16:19:57  <SmatZ> nicky: 0.6.3? you have the german version of GRFs ... trunk handles them fine :)
16:20:03  <Belugas> "waiting for" :S
16:20:04  <SmatZ> but you can ignore that warning
16:20:18  <SmatZ> Belugas: works for me :)
16:20:40  <Belugas> therefor, must be blocked :(

16:23:32  *** Baem [] has joined #openttd
16:23:37  <Baem> hi all
16:23:55  <Eddi|zuHause> nicky: no, but differences in publication of grfs
16:24:38  <SmatZ> nicky: GRF files from german OTTD version differ a bit
16:24:42  <Eddi|zuHause> some sprites have been fixed in a version that was apparently distributed in germany, so the checksums are different, and openttd does not recognize them (or something)
16:24:57  <SmatZ> and OTTD 0.6.x knows only the english GRF version
16:25:06  <nicky> ah
16:25:08  <SmatZ> ass eddi said :)
16:25:14  <nicky> nice
16:25:26  <nicky> i think i used grfcrawler on the stations
16:25:40  <nicky> are there any german grfs there?
16:26:05  <Eddi|zuHause> grfcrawler is about newgrfs, not original grfs
16:26:51  <nicky> my original ttd? or my openttd version?
16:27:02  <Eddi|zuHause> your original ttd
16:27:09  <nicky> ah, right
16:27:17  <nicky> dont remember where i downloaded that
16:27:28  <Eddi|zuHause> pssst!
16:27:45  <Eddi|zuHause> *wave hands* you did not download this anywhere
16:27:51  <nicky> lol
16:27:55  <Eddi|zuHause> *wave hands* you bought these in a store
16:27:57  <nicky> i mean bought
16:28:03  <nicky> of course
16:28:05  <nicky> its slang
16:28:08  <Eddi|zuHause> see, it works ;)
16:28:21  <nicky> i downloaded some groceries a few minutes ago
16:28:26  <glx> <nicky> it says my trgt.grf file is corrupted or missing. could that be the problem? <-- the filename is a DOS one (unless you failed to copy/paste)
16:29:35  <Sacro|Laptop> Any hungerians here?
16:30:10  <nicky> is it possible i managed to download a DOS original TTD, when the rest of the game is working fine from xp?
16:30:15  <nicky> i mean bought
16:30:19  <nicky> damn. sorry
16:30:23  <nicky> more slang
16:30:30  <Baem> where i do found the ranking thingy? i mean the bot like services with counts wins etc
16:30:43  <nicky> a german DOS version lol
16:30:51  <nicky> that would have done the trick
16:30:56  <Baem> or maybe its an builtin? :D
16:30:58  *** Chrill [] has joined #openttd
16:31:17  <nicky> maybe i didnt even get the right game, maybe im actually playing ports of call
16:31:36  <nicky> any new grfs for ports of call?
16:31:41  <nicky> new ships?
16:31:42  <nicky> :)
16:31:55  <Eddi|zuHause> nicky: openttd only needs the grfs from an original TTD, whether that original version is DOS or Win does not matter to openttd

20:24:27  <Htx^Lapto>
20:25:14  <Htx^Lapto> i can't make them turn around or build new roads to the affected vechicles as there are vehicles "in the way"... I don't seem to be able to change direction of the tiles with vehicles on them either
20:25:32  <SmatZ> hahahaahaahah
20:26:00  <Nite_Owl> Send them to the depot
20:26:10  <Htx^Lapto> it says it can't find local depot
20:26:11  <Prof_Frink> Htx^Lapto: You don't need oneway on every tile
20:26:24  <Htx^Lapto> thanks for your compassion btw ;)
20:26:33  <Htx^Lapto> ok
20:26:54  <Htx^Lapto> guess I'll have to load an old save :/
20:27:07  <Prof_Frink> You can't even send in a train for a mercy killing
20:27:14  <petern> Can you not remove the oneway bits if a vehicle is on them?

20:27:50  <SmatZ> Htx^Lapto: they aren't deadlocked, are they?
20:28:18  <Htx^Lapto> i guess they are, I really can't do anything with them
20:29:00  <SmatZ> weird :-/
20:29:18  <Htx^Lapto> it says can't build road when I try to change direction
20:30:00  <Htx^Lapto> i don't really think it would be a problem to allow that, if the truck has entered the tile, just wait to apply the rule to it when it enters a new tile or something
20:30:09  <SmatZ> can you post a savegame? I couldn't reproduce that
20:31:34  <Htx^Lapto> sure
20:32:14  <Htx^Lapto> btw the depot in the image is quite misleading as i built it after the problem arose... so it's not connected to the road as there were vehicles on the road
20:33:07  <petern> SmatZ ... it's laughably easy to reproduce that.
20:33:13  <Htx^Lapto>

21:55:29  <fjb> No. :-)
21:55:43  <Ammler> well, you could also use around 10 lines parallel
21:55:51  <Ammler> do you like that more?
21:56:27  <fjb> You could use reasonably long trains.

22:03:49  <Ammler> it's like a compromis :-)
22:04:01  <Aali> 2 tile gap is the only thing that looks "right" in my mind :P
22:04:15  <Brianetta> yuck
22:04:22  <Brianetta> I use long blocks
22:04:28  <Brianetta> My preset for dragging is 9 tiles
22:04:40  <Brianetta> sometimes they're even longer
22:05:53  *** Jupix [] has joined #openttd
22:06:59  <Aali> Brianetta: isn't that just horribly inefficient though?
22:07:11  <Brianetta> Define horrible
22:07:14  <Brianetta> and we'll discuss
22:07:25  <fjb> That has the advantage that you don't have to worry about jams at bridges or tunnels.
22:07:33  <Brianetta> Long signal blocks let my trains really stretch their legs
22:07:45  <Brianetta> and I like to build realistic lines
22:07:53  <Aali> but you can't have as many trains
22:08:13  <fjb> Make the trains longer.
22:08:27  <Brianetta> I'm one of the few players who knows, to an integer value, how many trains his lines can handle.
22:09:09  <Brianetta> My play style is reserved and low key.  My track work pleases me, and watching the trains on it keeps me entertained for hours.
22:09:15  <Aali> ah, see, there it is, i dont care much for realistic networks
22:09:18  <Brianetta> Also, my trains never get jammed.
22:09:27  <Brianetta> And by never, I mean, never.
22:10:05  <Brianetta> You should see the tight tricks I can accomplish without PBS
22:11:40  <Ammler> well, if I would use only 1-2 trains per line, I am sure, my network won't jam, too. :P

22:14:30  <Brianetta> I'm running my demo save in fast forward
22:14:42  <Brianetta> Let's see how quickly it jams, eh?
22:15:06  <Ammler> sometimes a train has to wait before he can enter a station
22:15:11  <Ammler> it
22:15:13  <Brianetta> Waiting is NATURAL
22:15:15  <Aali> Reason: !Disconnecting road vehicle.
22:15:17  <Brianetta> omg
22:15:21  <Brianetta> waiting at a red signal
22:15:22  <Aali> and i'm using 0.6.2
22:15:25  <Brianetta> what a catastrophe
22:15:38  <Brianetta> That's not a jam
22:15:40  <Aali> whats up with that?
22:15:44  <Ammler> lol
22:15:49  <Ammler> well never mind.
22:16:05  <Brianetta> a jam is where you train ultimately has to wait for itself, and requires user intervention
22:16:12  <Ammler> I know, my logic is different...
22:16:16  <Brianetta> I see it on my server all the time

22:17:19  <Brianetta> Aali: You need the newgrfs is it's the one I pasted a URI to
22:17:20  <Ammler> Aali: maybe a issue with grfs
22:17:33  <Brianetta>
22:17:45  <Brianetta> Those are compatible, but you'll also need Blunck's ones
22:17:53  <Aali> you'd think it'd say missing grf or something, but okay
22:18:24  <Ammler> well, check the grfs, there could also be different versions.
22:18:39  <Brianetta> Ammler: Off-line, it'll load different versions
22:18:46  <Brianetta> assuming them to be compatible
22:18:52  <Ammler> that is the problem
22:18:58  <Aali> yep, works now
22:18:58  <Ammler> because of that, it can crash

22:19:30  <Chrill> I believe I have also finished settings well
22:19:34  <Chrill> will go through it, then send to you
22:19:44  <Ammler> because some devs forget to change GRFID, if the GRF is not downwards compatible anymore
22:19:51  <Ammler> like ISR
22:20:21  <Brianetta> cool, Chrill
22:20:54  <Brianetta> Ammler: Each author only gets 10,000 IDs.
22:20:59  <Brianetta> They don't want to use them all up.
22:21:13  <Brianetta> oh wait, they're hex
22:21:20  <Brianetta> They only get 65,000 odd IDs
22:21:45  <Aali> Brianetta: looks kinda like my latest SP game, except i have 3x the number of trains on the same amount of tracks :P
22:21:47  <Ammler> well, the first 2 bytes should be used for coder "id"
22:21:58  <Ammler> the 3. is the GRF and the last the version
22:22:15  <Ammler> so a coder has 255 steps for his GRF
22:22:58  <Brianetta> Aali: Do your networks ever jam?
22:23:14  <Aali> it hasn't jammed yet, but then again its only 1963
22:24:30  <Aali> there is some potential for jams where two junctions are a little bit too close to each other
22:24:41  <Aali> fortunatly, one of them is low-traffic for now
22:25:16  *** Htx^Lapto [] has quit [Quit: Bye]

22:25:58  <Aali> i am playing with breakdowns, but with the realistic breakdowns patch, so that hasn't really caused me any trouble
22:29:53  <Nite_Owl> Do they not change the station ID's on every major release of ISR which is what breaks the compatibility with previous versions

23:22:20  <Ammler> and since version (0.6)
23:22:37  <Ammler> things now are "addons"
23:22:56  <Ammler> and should not break the save games anymore.
23:23:24  <fjb> Everything that is beta instead of alpha is a release? You should work for a software company.
23:23:35  <Ammler> heh?
23:24:19  <fjb> ISR is still under development. It is not complete even if it contains more than other grfs.
23:24:25  <Ammler> it replaced officially the harbour and and jcind or how that is called.
23:25:05  <Ammler> openttd is also still under development
23:25:20  <Ammler> but you can load older save games with trunk.
23:26:36  <fjb> Not every piece of software out there is fully backward compatible. That is even true for a major OS.
23:26:50  <Wolf01> With ISR you can too, but you should first manually convert all stations to the standard style
23:26:59  <fjb> And the harbour grf is very incomplete.
23:27:17  <Ammler> Wolf, I like the foobarway more
23:27:36  <Ammler> or wallyweb
23:27:50  <Wolf01> which is? new game?
23:28:03  <Ammler> no
23:28:10  <fjb> Maybe you prefer that way. But it is your choice to use ISR or not. And nobody forces you to always use the latest version of ISR.
23:28:32  <Ammler> just replace the tiles which have changed.
23:28:43  *** Nite_Owl [] has left #openttd []
23:29:18  <fjb> Or still use the version you started the game with.
23:29:28  <Ammler> that is the way we use.
23:29:50  <Wolf01> I'll take less time to convert all the tiles to original stations and then back again with the new version, so I'll might build better layouts
23:29:56  <Ammler> ne need to keep every version because of that for our game archive.
23:30:24  <Ammler> I only know one other GRF which has this "issue": Moderntrams
23:30:52  <fjb> Moderntrams is hardly in alpha state.
23:31:20  <Ammler> well, don't take me wrong.

23:35:12  <fjb> Or wait till 1.0 comes out.
23:35:17  <Ammler> :-P
23:35:32  <fjb> Nobody forces you to take every step.
23:35:39  <Ammler> then how can I stop others to use them with my saves?
23:37:49  <fjb> How are the others related to your saves?
23:37:57  <Ammler> and we somehow guaranteed the authors to use the newest grf.
23:38:54  <fjb> And that forces you to change the grfs in mid game?
23:39:03  <Ammler> no
23:39:14  <Ammler> we never change the pack on a running game
23:39:30  <Ammler> well, don't say never...
23:39:57  <Ammler> the problem is that it crashes the client if you load old games.
23:40:02  <fjb> So waht is your problem?
23:40:15  <Ammler> yes, there are poeple using our archive.
23:40:59  <Ammler> it not really a problem, but a glitch :-)
23:41:12  <fjb> OpenTTD will recognize that an older version is used in the game.
23:41:23  *** welshdra-gone is now known as welshdragon
23:41:32  <Ammler> and you have to trash the save
23:41:44  <Ammler> because the older grf is not available anymore
23:41:53  <Ammler> if we wouldn't keep those.
23:42:58  <fjb> And how would a different ID change that problem?
23:43:11  <Ammler> then the GRF would not load
23:43:19  <fjb> Using a different ID magically keeps the old grfs around forever?
23:43:23  <Ammler> it is like you would not have it in your data folder
23:43:47  <Ammler> why?
23:43:56  <fjb> And now the person loading the grf gets a warning that a grf changed.
23:44:04  <Ammler> you can also keep grfs with same id forever
23:44:18  <Ammler> no, not a warning
23:44:24  <Ammler> the client crashes
23:44:39  <Ammler> well, you can see it as warning, too.
23:44:43  <fjb> He can load the save and then manually correct the stations. With a changing ID the save would be completly useless.
23:45:15  <Ammler> but you have no idea which grf makes that crash
23:45:17  <fjb> When the client crashes that is a bug in OpenTTD. Loading a GRF should never crash OpenTTD.
23:45:41  <Ammler> :-)
23:46:26  <Ammler> well, hmm
23:46:31  <fjb> Thats like blaming the auther of a text for using an unexpected charset when your textprocessor crashes.
23:46:55  <Ammler> i guess, the client does automatically pause and gives a warning if you unpause
23:47:28  <fjb> OpenTTD interprets the code in the GRF. If the GRF crashes the interpreter then the interprter is buggy.
23:47:56  <Ammler> well, OpenTTD is also not 1.0 :-P
23:47:57  <fjb> So make an entry on flyspray about the crash.
23:48:31  <Ammler> we talked too long about that
23:48:32  <fjb> How do you expect OpenTTD to get fixed if you don't report the bug?
23:48:43  <Ammler> the glitch is not worth it.
23:48:59  <Ammler> OpenTTD don't have to fix it
23:49:12  <fjb> A crash of the client is no glitch, it is a bug.
23:49:16  <Ammler> ISR should just use another ID, if they vreak compatiblity
23:49:20  <Ammler> they did once
23:50:24  <fjb> And then the next grfs shows up that is not in a stable condition and changes without changing the ID. And you start to complain again.
23:50:44  <fjb> And you always have to use the latest and newest grfs ofcourse.
23:50:57  <Ammler> of course
23:51:25  <Ammler> sorry, but ISR is no beta anymore
23:51:37  <fjb> You decided that?
23:51:43  <Ammler> no they
23:51:50  <Ammler> I read that nowhere
23:53:02  <Ammler> :-D
23:53:10  <fjb> So a piece of software has a version number of 0.x and changes every few weeks and that is no hint to you that it is still under havy development and no stable release?
23:53:34  <Ammler> well, we should really stop it :-)
23:54:33  <fjb> Better for your arguments.
23:54:39  <Ammler> nah :P
23:54:52  <Ammler> we just have different opinions
23:55:04  <Ammler> I like ISR btw, too
23:55:34  <fjb> Did you ever talk to the ISR authors about changing the ID?
23:56:15  <Ammler> they changed it from 0.3 to 0.4 or 5 because of that reason
23:56:33  <fjb> And that was the same coder?
23:56:39  <Ammler> xes
23:56:53  <Ammler> maedhros did it until 0.3
23:57:42  <fjb> Complaining here changes nothing. Talk to the authors. Maybe they only need to get reminded about changing the ID.
23:59:04  <Ammler> well, I dd recognize it too late
23:59:08  <Ammler> with 0.7
23:59:50  <fjb> When changing from 0.6 to 0.7? As far as I know the incompatibility was well documented.
