05:52:02  <A_Person> wow, I still have release version 0.4.1
05:53:53  <Sacro> lol
05:54:30  <A_Person> Haven't played in over a year
05:54:35  <A_Person> Hi
05:56:10  <Sacro> heh, hey
05:56:16  <A_Person> I wonder if any super high volume railway station freaks are abou
05:56:27  <Sacro> probably are
05:56:35  <A_Person> Not you? :P
05:56:54  <Sacro> I aim for more realistic than ZOMG LIKE HUEG CAPACITY
05:57:02  <A_Person> Heh
05:57:28  <A_Person> an experiment or a sort of scenario I tried to create back then has decided to haunt me today
05:58:07  <A_Person> utterly unrealistic
05:59:01  <A_Person> but it required a two point railway that seemed to lack capacit for the amount of goods the game can supply it with
06:06:10  <Eddi|zuHause> damn... i have a severe case of jet lag
06:06:29  <Eddi|zuHause> but i only went to the airport and back (40 minutes each way)
06:06:36  <A_Person> Hehe
06:06:51  <A_Person> I woke up 18 hours ago
06:06:57  <A_Person> it's the buzz!
06:09:28  <Sacro> i've been awake 13 hours
06:09:33  <Sacro> it is 0710 now
06:09:41  <A_Person> a couple hours later here
06:10:24  <A_Person> Haven't seen that format in a while
06:18:10  <Sacro> what format?
06:25:06  <A_Person> 0 instead of :
06:25:07  <A_Person> ;P
06:25:33  * A_Person makes some honey coffee
06:28:45  *** ecke [~ecke@] has quit [Quit: ecke]
06:29:07  * A_Person is rea-learning
06:29:46  * Sacro is readingabout WWII
06:29:53  <A_Person> uuu
06:30:00  <Sacro> Yeah
06:30:04  <Sacro> quite interesting
06:30:06  <A_Person> Anything new there? :P
06:30:22  <Sacro> well i'm writing up local council minutes for 1938
06:30:33  <Sacro> it's interesting just how much war preparation there is going on
06:30:37  <A_Person> minutes?
06:30:47  <Sacro> logs from council meetings
06:31:01  <A_Person> Right, a proper historian there, huh
06:31:20  <Sacro> nah
06:36:09  <A_Person> Hm, might have failed my coffee, could have poured too cool water :/

08:49:22  <Sacro> hm, the gimp pallete in svn is invalid
08:49:58  <Sacro> oh
08:50:02  <Sacro> it's all html'y D:
08:50:18  *** ludde [] has joined #openttd
08:50:34  <petern> Er, what palette?
08:51:02  <Sacro> never mind...
08:51:06  <Sacro> I grabbed the html file
08:51:08  <Sacro> not the original
08:51:58  <Sacro> right, time to do BRSignals.grf
08:53:48  <Sacro> time to get rid of the silly practice of having YAPP signals with boxes
08:54:06  <Sacro> a non-yapp signal should have a black and white box
08:54:09  <petern> Boxes?
08:54:18  <Sacro> yeah, currently a yapp signal has a yellow box
08:54:52  <petern> Oh, well blame MB ;)
08:54:52  <Sacro> but IRL an automatic signal has a marker
08:54:59  <Sacro> whereas a controlled doesn't
08:55:16  <Sacro> hmm, shall I do different semaphore styles
08:56:20  <Sacro> right, which palette colours are special...

10:39:46  <dih> how does cargodest handle pbi ?
10:42:22  <Ammler> cargodest has newindustry support.
10:42:58  <Ammler> it has just troubles with cargo which arrives while the industry doesn't accept a type temporarly because of excess.
10:46:03  <petern> It behaves exactly as expected.
10:49:49  <SpComb> how should I expect it to behave?

11:48:13  <Phazorx>
11:48:32  <Phazorx> like that one but sort of propered to relative paths?
11:49:41  <Ammler> you could use the "hg sed": sed "/---/ s|a/||;/+++/ s|b/||;" patch > patch
11:49:59  <Phazorx> heh
11:50:15  <Ammler> replace a/ with /trunk/

12:45:14  <Alberth> MOG: I have very little experience with such problems. Do you have any communication at all? (OpenTTD exchanges quite some data normally)
12:45:23  <Eddi|zuHause> who made that build?
12:45:39  <MOG> it's the build that comes with opensuse
12:45:43  <Eddi|zuHause> maybe they made modifications that they shouldn't have?
12:46:07  <MOG> that could indeed be a problem
12:46:30  <MOG> I thought about downloading the svn version - or is that a totally stupid idea for mp?
12:46:45  <Eddi|zuHause> versions must match exactly
12:46:51  *** sulai [] has joined #openttd
12:47:13  <MOG> it's only for playing at home ;) so same revision shouldn't be a problem
12:47:18  <Eddi|zuHause> 0.6.3 must play with 0.6.3 only, r12345 must play with r12345 only
12:48:14  <Eddi|zuHause> and if you go all experimental on openttd, you could try the cargodest version ;)
12:48:39  <MOG> cargodest version?

13:18:09  <glx> I don't
13:18:16  <roboboy> hehe

16:11:38  <SpComb> being able to tell why the connection was lost
16:12:26  <Muxy> well, it is in the code. and u get the message in the console : leaving or connection lost
16:13:05  * SpComb doesn't know what the OpenTTD code does
16:15:20  <Muxy> That's my 1st reply in the post : the server is able to know if it's normal leaving (user select leave game) or if it's a lost connection. So in the patch I clean the company if it has ZERO vehicle and if it's not a lost connection.

17:32:13  *** Yeggs-away is now known as Yeggstry
17:33:59  <Eddi|zuHause> Question: randomized station names have routines for checking the surrounding of the station to choose certain suitible names (like "Mine" when a mine is near, or "Woods" when trees are near). how hard would it be to expose similar functionality to the town name generator (and especially newgrfs), so e.g. certain townname parts can only appear when a town is near water, or on top of a hill, or similar?
17:35:40  *** |Jeroen| [] has quit [Quit: oO]
17:36:09  <glx> town name is just a number
17:36:32  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, i'm aware of that
17:38:34  <Eddi|zuHause> but in germany, some duplicate towns are often described by a suffix, like Halle (Saale) is near the river Saale, while Halle (Westphalen) is in the country of Westphalen, now calling a town with a river name is only suitible when there actually is a river near there
17:39:02  <Eddi|zuHause> so when no water is found near the town, the suffixes for river names should have a probability of 0 being generated
17:39:07  <glx> the name displayed is asked to the generator each time it's displayed
17:39:40  <Muxy> it means tha u must qualify them in the grf
17:39:45  <Eddi|zuHause> yes. the suffix is still there for displaying, but the probability of generating it is 0
17:40:25  <glx> what happens if the water amount changes ?
17:40:25  <frosch123> I guess Eddi is heading for a callback that can deny a random number on while turn founding
17:40:45  <frosch123> s/turn/town/
17:41:33  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, something like that
17:41:34  <glx> name generator is just an imbrication of switches
17:43:36  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, so the same number must under any circumstance return the same name
17:44:02  <Eddi|zuHause> so there might be a way to deny certain numbers as invalid when generating them
17:44:03  <glx> yes it's totally deterministic, and different numbers can return the same name too
17:44:15  <Eddi|zuHause> like numbers are invalid when the name is duplicate
17:44:44  <Eddi|zuHause> so at the place of this duplication check, there could also be this hypothetical callback
17:45:39  <Eddi|zuHause> so a suffix can be flagged as "needs to be near water", and if the callback fails, the number is discarded as invalid
17:46:28  *** batti5 [~batti5@] has joined #openttd
17:46:29  <glx> I think you can't flag the suffix, but you can use something similar to the name determination
17:47:13  <frosch123> I guess Eddi wants to flag the whole 32 random bits, i.e. the callback knows which bits belong to the suffix
17:47:51  <glx> depends on how the grf interprets bits
17:48:07  <glx> the only way would be to pass the uint32 to the callback
17:48:19  <frosch123> yup, that's what I meant :)

17:55:39  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't know a thing about how to add newgrf callbacks
17:56:25  <glx> adding a callback is not the hardest part ;)
17:56:49  <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: take a look at newgrf_generic.cpp, take NewGenericResolver and duplicate it with its own GetVariable() function
17:56:53  <Eddi|zuHause> well, yes, it has to be designed properly to be useful and generic enough
17:57:31  <Eddi|zuHause> and the resulting newgrf code shouldn't be too complicated, or people won't use it
17:57:53  <glx> the newgrf code will be the same as other callbacks
17:58:15  <frosch123> [19:59] <Eddi|zuHause> and the resulting newgrf code shouldn't be too complicated, or people won't use it <- when you start like that, everything would be too complicated :)
17:58:50  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, but it wouldn't be good if the newgrf coder has to duplicate the town name part structure for calculating the callback result
17:59:11  *** Swallow [] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.83 [Firefox 3.0.3/2008092417]]
17:59:36  <glx> it can just check the bits used to determine an exact suffix he wants to prevent
18:00:30  <glx> but for complex name generator it can be fun :)
18:01:20  <Eddi|zuHause> well, a possible extension to that callback would be to return a replacement suffix to use (i.e. alter the bits)
18:02:06  <Eddi|zuHause> can callbacks return 32 bit?
18:02:09  <DaleStan> the only way would be to pass the uint32 to the callback <-- This would require exposing which bit values correspond to which nameparts. Is that known to be the same in Patch and Open?
18:02:31  *** svippery [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:03:47  <DaleStan> Eddi|zuHause: With difficulty, yes. But if the CB changes the name, then you have to go back and re-run all the name-validity checking.
18:04:05  <Eddi|zuHause> of course, that one is obvious ;=
18:05:05  <A_Person> oops, I updated my openttd while the game was open :/
18:05:32  <DaleStan> Or do the callback before TTD's name-validity code, which would probably make more sense.
18:05:35  <frosch123> [20:04] <DaleStan> the only way would be to pass the uint32 to the callback <-- This would require exposing which bit values correspond to which nameparts. Is that known to be the same in Patch and Open? <- we are taking about the 32 random bits which are used in ActionF
18:06:36  <frosch123> and the callback could only apply to name styles from the same grf
18:07:04  <glx> as this 32 bits value is the one stored as townname
18:07:05  <DaleStan> Yeah. Given three parts, each with probability 01, selected by two bits, what values of those two bits correspond to which part?
18:07:27  *** sulai [] has quit [Quit: Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.]
18:07:28  <DaleStan> And which part actually has a 50% chance of appearing.
18:07:39  <DaleStan> None of that is currently documented.
18:07:53  <Eddi|zuHause> well, in my imagination it could work like this, assume we have an action F with the following parts: (taken from the action F page):
18:07:55  <Eddi|zuHause> 03 "Alpha" 00 01 "Beta" 00
18:08:03  *** FR^2 [] has joined #openttd
18:08:13  <Eddi|zuHause> there could be an extension that for each name an action 2 id is given
18:08:33  <Eddi|zuHause> 03 "Alpha" 00 <action 2 id 1> 01 "Beta" 00 <action 2 id 2>
18:09:11  <Eddi|zuHause> so when the town name generator generates a town name with the part "Alpha", the corresponding action 2 is called, and this can call other functions that check for validity
18:09:19  *** svippery [] has joined #openttd
18:09:28  <Eddi|zuHause> and if that callback result is negative, the whole number is flagged as invalid
18:10:45  <frosch123> [20:09] <DaleStan> None of that is currently documented. <- that does not mean it is not deterministic, and I consider it the fault of the grf author, when they do not sum up to a power of two
18:11:58  <DaleStan> Even if it is deterministic, is it deterministic in the same way in both Patch and Open?
18:12:19  <Eddi|zuHause> does it have to be?
18:12:33  <frosch123> don't know, but it is deterministic between patch and grf2html, and open looks similiar. glx should know :)

18:14:13  *** joey_ is now known as DJGummikuh
18:14:15  <DaleStan> Yes. It does. Else NFO coders would have to use two different action 2 chains. Even if the chain is called after every choice, there might be a condition where the NFO has to know about the existence of two or more parts before it can determine validity.

19:00:35  <A_Person> And that was pretty much the meaning of my challenge I guess
19:00:53  <A_Person> want to see if the game's theoretical max is possible
19:01:09  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: The problem with PBI stockpiling is that I regularly overflow the only left steel mill with my two 1885 steam engine trains.
19:02:11  <Eddi|zuHause> well, yes, the closing of unserved industries must be dealt with differently, somehow
19:02:20  <fjb> A_Person: Maybe you should try the new YAPP signals in the current nightly builds.
19:02:43  <A_Person> Well, I just installed the current version, last time I played I had 0.4.1!
19:03:41  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: And the steel mill gets overflowed by less than the load of one train with two steam egines hauling up a hill.
19:04:26  <Eddi|zuHause> what? my steel mills take somethin like 1000 items, how do you put that mass into one train?
19:04:29  <fjb> The new signals greatly enhance the throughput of switchyards.
19:04:51  <Ammler> Eddi|zuHause: your old alpine game, still playing that?
19:05:13  <A_Person> I guess you're right, I'll give it a try after I've had my taste of the changes since my last encounter
19:05:22  <A_Person> a taste*
19:05:24  <Eddi|zuHause> Ammler: no, it was kinda stuck with an old yapp v3 build, and i never managed to get it loadable in a newer version
19:05:42  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: Coal limit is about 750 tons.
19:05:48  <Ammler> snow-in-temperate is so nice.
19:06:02  <Eddi|zuHause> fjb: my observation is that these limits vary from industry to industry
19:06:16  <Eddi|zuHause> but i might be mistaken in that
19:06:28  <A_Person> I've been thinking all evening that beside having snow in tmeperate it would be nice to have a crazy mics of industries in all 3 climates :D
19:06:32  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, i love snow
19:06:56  <Eddi|zuHause> if you want crazy, take ECS
19:07:00  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: Then I went unlucky with the only left steel mill. It's iron ore limit is higher, but it consumes as much coal as iron ore.
19:07:22  <Ammler> well, in that case ECS is more "stable"
19:08:01  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause: I tried ECS, there things that I like and things that I dislike with ECS. But starting a game in 1831 would had left hardly any industry on the map to play with.
19:08:20  <Ammler> you do not need to fund new primary industries all the time like with PBI
19:08:31  <Ammler> (or prospect)
19:09:19  <fjb> Yes, they are dying to fast in ECS. And you earn not that much money starting that early.
19:09:32  <Ammler> ECS has some unttdish graphics, else it is fine (well, don't use all vectors at once)
19:10:24  <Ammler> but not if you service them...
19:11:00  <fjb> All vectors at once is the real fun. But many graphics could be better, more TTD like hand drawn. I like the coal mine and the factory. But I dislike the rendered ones.
19:11:59  *** KillaloT [] has joined #openttd
19:12:08  <fjb> I had ECS industries die even when serviced, but it is hard to always get a rating above 80% in early game years.
19:12:41  <Ammler> didn't that change with newest versions?
19:13:30  <fjb> Didn't try beta 5 yet.
19:13:43  <Eddi|zuHause> i haven't touched ECS in a while, since it was unplayable on a big map
19:13:53  <fjb> I'm currently playing my 1831 PBI game.
19:14:02  <petern> 1831 :o
19:14:38  <fjb> Yeah, starting earlier didn't work. Horse carriages are just too slow to get enough money.
19:16:04  <Eddi|zuHause> payment rates need to adapt through the years
19:16:25  <fjb> Now it is 1905 and I'm having 19 trains, 73 horse carriages and two steam boats.
19:17:14  <frosch123> 19 trains after 74 gameyears? isn't that kind of boring?
19:17:32  <fjb> Longest train is my unhappy 968 tons coal train.

19:20:14  <fjb> We should interconnect the servers. :-)
19:22:29  <fjb> Another problem with slow vehicles is that they are losing reliability too fast. the hardly reach the next depot in time.

22:06:27  <Rubidium> hmmm.... libtimidity is only a "decoder"; it doesn't seem to actually play the music
22:12:45  <broli> exactly
22:13:18  <broli> is it normal that terraforming a path uniting 2 shores lines of a lake is actually more cheaper than doing the same until the middle of the lake?
22:15:28  <SmatZ> depends how many water tiles you modify
22:15:38  <broli> less
22:15:43  <broli> thats the ppoint
22:16:34  <broli> 30x2 path uniting 2 shore lines is cheaper than 15x2 path that ends mid water
22:17:00  <SmatZ> sorry I fail to understand your sentences
22:17:12  <broli> yeah, sorry, my english is not that good
22:17:20  <broli> i will make a screenshot and gimp iot
22:17:38  <Nite_Owl> Terraforming water is more expensive but you can only raise it up
22:18:18  <SmatZ> but yeah, there is something wrong
22:18:27  <SmatZ> like, you modify only 3 half-water tiles
22:18:35  <SmatZ> and it costs the same as modifying 4 half-water tiles
22:19:14  <A_Person> Do Coal Mines get depleted?
22:19:50  <Eddi|zuHause> in some newgrf industry sets, yes
22:19:51  <Nite_Owl> Not in the standard game
22:20:06  <broli> where is teh pnd stored?
22:20:09  <A_Person> Ah, but I presume oil wells do?
22:20:24  <broli> alot
22:20:25  <A_Person> At least I saw mention of it on some page today, forgot which
22:20:51  <SmatZ> A_Person: yes, in temperate, they do
22:21:11  <SmatZ> their production doesn't increase, and once they die
22:21:22  <A_Person> K, thanks

22:23:21  <A_Person> I'm thinking if I should put two way coal hauling into my crazy two point scheme
22:23:33  <SmatZ> I think they will die faster when you are not servicing them... but I may be wrong
22:23:36  <A_Person> coal from one station to the other's powerplant and vice versa
22:23:40  <SmatZ> :)
22:24:38  <broli> ok, i think i got it.
22:25:13  <broli> this is cheaper than this
22:27:09  *** HerzogDeXtEr1 [~Flex@] has joined #openttd
22:27:10  <broli> the "shorter" one costs something like 75% cheaper
22:27:21  <broli> sorry, 25%cheaper
22:28:03  <SmatZ> broli: interesting
22:30:13  <broli> yeah
22:30:28  <broli> i did some math, it its actually 25%, by the cent

22:32:32  <sulai> hey guys
22:33:23  <sulai> I've a question about "make" when you execute it to compile openttd... if its return value is 1, does this *always* mean there are just compile errors?
22:33:42  <sulai> I've a question about "make" when you execute it to compile openttd... if its return value is 1, does this *always* mean there are just compile WARNINGS?

22:34:44  <glx> it may mean it reconfigured too
22:36:04  <SmatZ> broli: ok, I had wrong assumptions... price for cleaning / leveling "half-water" tile is the same as for "full-water" tile
22:36:13  <A_Person> If you fund or prospect new industries can you pick where they appear?
22:36:22  <A_Person> like, as precisely as in the scenario editor
22:36:38  <SmatZ> A_Person: "Fund" -> you choose place ; "Prospect" -> random place
22:36:47  <A_Person> ah
22:36:51  <glx> prospect may fail and cost

22:37:35  <sulai> Progman, glx: ok, so if make returns value 1 it still means you get a working openttd executable ?
22:37:38  <glx> depends on advanced settings
22:37:54  <glx> was for A_Person :)
22:37:56  <A_Person> Ah
22:38:15  <A_Person> Well, thanks for the info, I'm sure to find out in game
22:40:05  <Eddi|zuHause> sulai: command line return values are inverse logic, 0 means "everything ok", the other values are increasing seriousness levels of errors
22:40:28  <sulai> just read the man page, thank you =)

22:41:10  <sulai> Eddi, I know, I just was curious if make returns 1 if everything is *almost* ok
22:42:40  <A_Person> I wonder if having just one square of catchment overlap an industry works, I think I remember it didn'õt
22:43:50  <Nite_Owl> Primary yes - secondary industries need a specific tile covered
22:44:52  <A_Person> Ah, yes, I remember I had to figure out those by trial and error
22:45:03  <A_Person> (building map for specific station size)

23:48:57  <thingwath> why?
23:50:49  <fjb> Linux has some raw edges that disturb me. Some things are done better in other systems.
23:52:24  * Rubidium has the tendency to wreck MacOS and dislikes the gazillion autoupdaters needed to keep a Windows system up-to-date
23:52:33  <thingwath> everything has some raw edges :)
23:52:47  <thingwath> i prefer to deal with a single set of them

23:53:26  <Rubidium> true
