08:17:53  <Doorslammer> Oh god
08:18:22  <Doorslammer> These Romans are crazy
08:18:54  *** Mortal [~mortal@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:23:01  <planetmaker> indeed.
08:23:26  <planetmaker> OpenTTD competition in circus maximus :P
08:23:43  <planetmaker> only the winner won't be fed to the lions :P
08:34:08  *** ecke [~ecke@] has quit [Quit: ecke]
08:34:48  <Celestar> The indians have launched their first lunar spacecraft this morning.
08:35:06  <Celestar> and the Europeans still sit on their fat butts doin' nuttin' in that regard.
08:36:30  <Doorslammer> Um, they have ESA, Ariane etc.
08:36:54  <Doorslammer> Mind you, its all launched in French Guiana or something aint it?
08:40:59  <roboboy> what of source forges services did OpenTTD use?
08:41:35  <roboboy>  / what sf services has OpenTTD used?
08:43:35  <petern> bug tracker and file hosting
08:43:41  <Celestar> Doorslammer: yes. and they still haven't managed to send as much as a a grain of salt to a lunar orbit.
08:44:00  <Celestar> let alone lunar surface
08:44:18  <roboboy> so SVN?
08:44:28  <petern> no, not svn
08:44:34  <petern> i'd've said svn if it had
08:44:52  <roboboy> so just hosting the compiled version?
08:45:08  <petern> hosting the releases, including source
08:45:29  <roboboy> was the reason OpenTTD moved that the site was unreliable and slow?
08:45:36  <petern> sf is fucking shit, yesz
08:45:52  <roboboy> ok
08:48:00  * Doorslammer looks for Ariane 5 explosion
08:48:27  <Zuu> While the sf service is free it is not the best for productive work.
08:50:55  <Celestar> Doorslammer: ?
08:51:39  <Celestar> the Ariane 5 has an ... acceptable success rate.
08:51:53  <Celestar> no comparison against the Delta, Titan or Progress unfortunately.
08:52:05  <Celestar> or even Ariane 4
08:53:10  <Doorslammer> Maybe, I cant remember it now, it was big news at the time
08:53:14  <Celestar> yeah
08:53:17  <Celestar> flight 501
08:53:48  *** Vikthor [] has joined #openttd
08:54:36  <Doorslammer> Thats the one, just found it
08:54:58  <Celestar> 157 went badly wrong as well
08:55:13  <Celestar> and two more partial failures
08:55:20  <Doorslammer> Oh?  What one was that?
08:55:47  <Celestar> the first flight went off course and was detonated back in 1996
08:56:19  <Celestar> and the first flight of the EC-A variant in 2002 had a failed upper stage
08:56:49  <Doorslammer> Bit crap, aren't they?
08:57:16  <Celestar> not too crappy
08:57:40  <Celestar> but if SpaceX can get their Falcon 9 Heavy right, Ariane will be out of business.
08:58:44  <Celestar> more payload, much lower cost
09:00:00  <Celestar> and at least theoretically a much higher reliability
09:00:05  <Doorslammer> Nice
09:00:33  <Celestar> but first they need to launch the Falcon 9 (non-heavy) onto her maiden flight
09:01:48  <Celestar> the Falcon 9 will be man-rated.
09:02:05  <Celestar> the Ariane 5 is actually man-ratable.

09:30:25  <TrueBrain> can I arrange the lions?
09:30:38  <Eddi|zuHause> according to some past future predictions, we should have extensive moon habitats by now :p
09:31:24  <planetmaker> the warp drive is not far ahead on the invention schedule :P
09:31:28  <planetmaker> Nor the rising of magic.
09:31:34  <planetmaker> Depends upon whom you trust.

09:44:59  * Celestar loves Alt+SysRq+b :D
09:45:50  <Celestar> Eddi|zuHause: we could easily have several moon bases by now if mankind wasn't that busy trying to kill each other and breaking each other's stuff
09:46:40  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm not so sure about that... mankind would never have left the atmosphere if it wasn't trying to kill each other
09:47:35  <Eddi|zuHause> space flight is merely a small side product of military rocketry
09:48:26  <Celestar> yes
09:48:38  <Celestar> and that's the fundamental fiscal problem we have in spaceflight
09:48:52  <Celestar> it's never been made to be efficient
09:49:33  <Eddi|zuHause> both the russian and the american rocket programs are based heavily on german research during the war

10:25:15  <dih> :-P
10:29:04  <Mortal> isn't it called print screen?
10:30:16  <Brianetta> Mortal: Alt-SysRq is supposed to be intercepted by the Linux kernel, regardles of other functions.
10:30:52  <dih> only if it's enabled
10:30:55  <Mortal> oh, that way
10:31:16  *** ecke [] has joined #openttd
10:31:18  <dih> but you can enable a sysrq-trigger file in /proc
10:31:32  <dih> and then simply echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger
10:32:01  <Eddi|zuHause> is there any information on what these sysrqs do?
10:32:36  <dih> s = sync (hdd's)
10:32:43  <dih> u = unmount
10:32:47  <dih> b = reboot
10:33:02  <dih> there is also e, but i cannot remember what that one is for

10:35:55  <SpComb> raising elephants is so utterly boring
10:37:04  <dih> no - elephants are fun... esp the little ones
10:37:11  <dih> so full of energy
10:37:15  <SpComb> Eddi|zuHause: sysrq (h)elp, presumeably, there's also some kind of list on wikipedia, under "Magic SysRq key"
10:37:18  <yorick> no, skinny ones are much better
10:37:18  <dih> and always to be had for some fun

11:45:57  <welshdragon> use pulseaudio

11:46:53  *** HerzogDeXtEr1 [~Flex@] has joined #openttd
11:46:57  <Celestar> dih: explain?
11:47:01  <dih> or find how to create a character device for it :-P
11:47:19  <dih> perhaps there is something in /proc that will trigger the system bell to beep
11:47:36  *** Mortal [~mortal@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:47:37  <dih> or perhaps there is a device you can create with mknod
11:47:40  <dih> that will do the same
11:47:45  <Celestar> hm
11:47:48  * Celestar goes looking

11:49:29  *** Aylomen [] has joined #openttd
11:49:33  <yorick> there's always a speaker...
11:49:36  <dih> else a small c app should be able to do it

11:50:09  <Celestar> there is a speaker
11:50:12  <dih> i wanted to say, what if there is no audio configured
11:50:16  *** glx [] has joined #openttd
11:50:19  *** mode/#openttd [+v glx] by ChanServ
11:50:22  <dih> perhaps dsp then outputs to the speaker
11:50:23  <Celestar> dih: system beep, not audio (=
11:50:40  <yorick> system beep is likely to be there
11:50:44  <dih> if dsp has nothing to output to, the system might beep, all i am wanting to say
11:50:54  <Celestar> dsp is configured apparently, because I've already tried cat /boot/vmlinuz > /dev/dsp
11:51:03  <dih> lol
11:51:12  <dih> i once managed to play songs via the pc speaker :-D

14:27:49  *** Gekz [] has joined #openttd
14:27:50  <Swallow> new (0) Restriction() works fine

14:30:11  <glx> Swallow: is there a diff somewhere?
14:30:34  <Celestar> new (0) looks bad to me
14:31:13  <glx> Celestar: no it forces the pool index
14:31:13  <glx> but it's used on game load only IIRC
14:31:17  <Celestar> ah
14:31:25  <Celestar> so an overloaded new operator?
14:32:11  *** Yexo [] has joined #openttd
14:32:20  <glx> yes
14:32:30  <Swallow> new Restriction() also uses an overloaded new operator IIRC, albeit a different one
14:32:52  <Rubidium> Swallow: I guess your "default" constructor doesn't initialize a new pool item as invalid, causing OpenTTD to not find an "empty" index, making more items which also aren't empty ....
14:33:03  <Rubidium> until the pool is completely full and it blows

15:06:01  <fjb> Ok, thank you.
15:06:41  <SmatZ> it isn't
15:08:37  <Eddi|zuHause> the compiler will usually tell you if it isn't :p
15:09:25  <frosch123> iso c++ 98 defines "false" and "true" as reserved keywords
15:09:43  <Eddi|zuHause> that is C++, not C
15:10:06  <frosch123> yes, I interpreted "C today" as C++
15:11:03  <Eddi|zuHause> that's a problem of the naming, because C++ is technically not really a "successor" to C, more a parallel language development

15:15:36  <fjb> I simply don't use true ore false if I can not be sure if it is defined in standard C.
15:16:07  <frosch123> in standard c you can hardly use anything
15:16:30  <fjb> Maybe ANSI C then.
15:17:28  <frosch123> e.g. you can configure some c compilers, so that they do not allow variable declarations inside "for", e.g. "for (int i = 0; ...)"
15:18:44  <fjb> I'm aware of that.

15:31:01  <Belugas> well... i'm pretty happy with what Delphi offers, so i compensate :)
15:31:06  <Eddi|zuHause> C++ would be a much nicer language if it was based on python :p
15:31:39  <Eddi|zuHause> (actually, i am really amazed of the python syntax)
15:31:46  <frosch123> is python the language with the imporant indenting, or was that php?
15:31:58  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, python is with the indenting
15:32:10  <Eddi|zuHause> which you should do anyway, because of coding style
15:32:44  <Eddi|zuHause> the advantage is, that you can leave out those pesky {}, which are difficult to type on localized keyboards
15:33:14  *** Dred_furst [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
15:33:43  <LN> one needs to indent what one intends.
15:34:08  <frosch123> the disadvantage is that you cannot copy&paste temporary code, and that you cannot use with crappy editors that do not show white space and add spaces and tabs to their liking
15:34:13  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm sure if you add static types and some declarative sugar you can easily design a compiled language worthy of replacing C++
15:34:34  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, the space/tab issue is a problem
15:35:27  <Zuu> And if typing {} is a problem changing keyboard layout can be an option.
15:35:51  <frosch123> or you can use "begin" and "end

15:40:13  <frosch123> reminds me, german keyboard contains a "§" key, which was in the range 0-31 under dos
15:40:26  <frosch123> some programs were killed by pressing it...

15:40:47  <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: oh yeah, i remember that ;)
15:41:16  <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: but most programs just ignored the key
15:41:51  <Eddi|zuHause> but § IS an important character in bureaucracy-regulated germany ;)
15:42:03  <Zuu> I'd say that variable names should stay in English, so need for non-ascii characters is low.
15:43:09  <Eddi|zuHause> Zuu: german has very specific rules on how to replace ÀöÌß in environments that do not support these characters

15:56:13  <Brianetta> In English, the Umlaut is correctly named a "diacritic mark" and signifies that a vowel pair is a diaeresis and not a diphthong.
15:56:36  <svippery> Not only the umlaut, Brianetta, all diacritics are diacritics.
15:56:41  <Brianetta> So naïve is a natively spelled English word.
15:56:43  <svippery> Oh dear, did I just state the obvious?
15:56:46  <Eddi|zuHause> Brianetta: that's because umlaut and diacritic are substantially different things
15:56:47  <planetmaker> If found above e or i, it's the same meaning.
15:56:49  <Brianetta> svippery: 'fraid so
15:56:53  <svippery> Just like mêlée, Brianetta?

15:57:49  <svippery> I did not realise "meh" meant that! O_O
15:58:10  <Eddi|zuHause> german spelling rules usually say "you can just leave out this french mess" :p
15:58:33  <svippery> Lucky the Danish spelling rules says "write it how it looks best, regardless of origin".
15:58:37  <Eddi|zuHause> means the words are "naiv" and "Armee"
15:58:51  <Brianetta> Eddi: English rules say that it's an English mess too.  We could (although it's unconventional) spell vacuum as vacuÃŒm.
15:59:10  <svippery> Why?  Isn't the double u one vowel?
15:59:16  <Brianetta> svippery: Nope.
15:59:24  <svippery> A better explain would be cooperation.
15:59:29  <Eddi|zuHause> Brianetta: that'd look significantly wrong in german :p
15:59:34  <svippery> Which the New Yorker continues to spell "coöperation".
15:59:40  <Brianetta> Eddi: Good job it isn't German (:

16:25:53  <ben_goodger> my point being, the peoples living in the area now defined as germany cannot have had a single language to call "old german" at any point before the 19th century, which is hardly "old"
16:26:00  <Eddi|zuHause> which is the reason why the east franc population needed a new name for their own language
16:26:49  <Eddi|zuHause> ben_goodger: language historically, "old german" refers to a period around the 8th to the 10th century
16:27:04  <ben_goodger> quite
16:27:10  <Eddi|zuHause> "middle german" from the 10th to the 14th century
16:27:15  <ben_goodger> indeed
16:27:22  <Eddi|zuHause> and "modern german" from the 14th century onwards
16:27:23  *** apo_ [] has joined #openttd
16:27:40  <Eddi|zuHause> german is heavily split in dialects, though
16:27:44  *** ecke [~ecke@] has joined #openttd
16:28:15  <Eddi|zuHause> which is mainly a north/south split, which explains the "high" and "low" german variants
16:28:21  <ben_goodger> and at the time of "old german", I am under the impression that no language was spoken exclusively in (or throughout) the land that is now germany
16:28:32  <Eddi|zuHause> "high" and "low" referring to the height of the landscape
16:28:39  <ben_goodger> yes
16:29:29  <Eddi|zuHause> low german, dutch and english being heavily derived from old saxon
16:30:07  <petern> this is why you should all speak english
16:30:29  <petern> it's the 'all inclusive' language
16:31:56  <Eddi|zuHause> ben_goodger: the language difficulties between the dialects only affect people who actually travel, which mainly reduces to the nobility and high clerical layers of the society, in those, often educated, societies, latin evolved as a quasi-standard language
16:32:32  <Eddi|zuHause> later, especially since the 17th century, french took over that part
16:32:32  <dih> now that company passwords are hashed, can they not be stored in the save game on the server?
16:33:02  <Eddi|zuHause> dih: no, as you would not want the hash to be sent to clients

19:09:09  <Rubidium> scarabeus: no, that is not applied. Any reasons why it should be applied?
19:09:49  <scarabeus> well mostly we use it in gentoo because it is not working without it if we want to disable/enable iconv based on user needs
19:11:25  <Belugas> "are we going to be sued if we are not PCI Compliant ?"
19:11:28  <Belugas> yeah.. right...

19:13:32  *** Yexo [] has joined #openttd
19:13:33  <Rubidium> scarabeus: that's just plain silly (IMO) because OpenTTD's configure script sets $with_iconv to "0" by default *unless* configure is ran a) on OSX (AFAIK Gentoo is not OSX) or b) with the parameter --with-iconv. If it user needs iconv, run `configure --with-iconv` and if the user doesn't need it run `configure`
19:14:33  <scarabeus> well we have flags $(use_with iconv) and it add -disable -enable based on user settings, so you say if i have iso8869-2 setting instead of utf i wont need iconv?
19:14:36  <petern> Belugas: who's suggesting someone would be sued?
19:14:49  <scarabeus> Rubidium: ^
19:15:48  <petern> the best bit about pci-dss is none of the banks are compliant
19:16:06  <Belugas> a customer.  we are not yet compliant so far, and the poor customer fears been sued by VISA-MASTERCARD
19:16:17  <Belugas> indeed :)
19:16:53  <petern> being ;)
19:16:57  <Rubidium> scarabeus: I didn't say that
19:17:08  <Belugas> and my boss cannot put in his head that the compliancy just comes when you are STORING a track 2...
19:17:19  <Belugas> being... right... one day i'll make the difference
19:17:50  <Belugas> he thinks that we can avoid compliancy if we do not TOUCH the track2
19:17:56  <Belugas> so let the 3th party do the job
19:18:01  <Belugas> let me laugh
19:18:03  <petern> hehe
19:18:04  <scarabeus> Rubidium: so we shoud add only --with-iconv and dont add --without-iconv if i get it correct?
19:18:50  <petern> we're currently going through yet another pci-dss audit
19:18:56  <petern> it's total pain in the bum
19:19:04  <petern> every time the requirements have changed slightly
19:19:16  <petern> every time they go through the same stuff that hasn't changed
19:19:29  <Rubidium> scarabeus: --without-iconv doesn't add anything iconv related to the LDFLAGS nor CFLAGS
19:19:33  <petern> and every time they take our word for it
19:20:00  <Belugas> lol
19:20:09  <Belugas> and grab the money at the same time :)
19:20:10  <Belugas> i
19:20:14  <petern> yup
19:20:28  <Belugas> ve  heard it cost around 30000$ each time
19:20:29  <petern> it's not cheap :o
19:20:38  <scarabeus> oh right i am little tired and reading bady, for us is not working --with-iconv, so if i wont need it in this game if i use iso8859-X i am ok with removing that flag but are you sure it wont cause issues?
19:20:47  <petern> hmm, don't remember exactly, not something i have to deal with
19:21:13  <Belugas> nor do I, but my boss raised it as one of the reasons not to go through it
19:21:19  <Rubidium> scarabeus: I've never used iconv
19:21:27  <Rubidium> scarabeus: but iconv isn't a library?
19:21:27  <petern> i don't think it was that expensive
19:22:09  <scarabeus> Rubidium: actualy i overtaked that patch and there is not in changelog why it was added i am just pretty sure that it does not compile withouot
19:22:30  <Rubidium> scarabeus: have you tried?
19:22:38  <scarabeus> yup
19:22:54  <petern> Belugas, the first time we had them in, they demanded we *turn off firewalls* so that they could scan the PCs
19:22:58  <Rubidium> because we have never received any complaints about iconv not compiling from anyone, except gentoo
19:23:02  <petern> i really don't think they understand what they're doing
19:23:14  <petern> actually it wasn't that
19:23:38  <petern> on windows servers, we have windows network disabled... and their system uses that and all the rpc stuff to see what's going on
19:23:59  <petern> so when it can't find that out, instead of flagging it up as secure, it flags it up as unreachable and untested
19:24:23  <Belugas> ho...they were actually trying to sniff your network
19:24:27  <petern> needless to say when we enabled it they complained about remote rpc and the like being enabled
19:24:34  <petern> i.e.
19:24:39  <scarabeus> Rubidium: well is it even anyone using nowdays?
19:24:42  <petern> what their software needs to work
19:24:46  <scarabeus> most of distros is utf
19:24:55  <petern> i.e.
19:24:58  <petern> they're fucking idiots
19:25:21  <scarabeus> Rubidium: btw 0.5 didnt need this patch
19:25:30  <petern> Belugas, yeah, first of all we had to drop the restrictions on the switches, because they're configured only to allow certain hosts...
19:25:47  <petern> pci-dss auditors don't understand security, they understand their scripts.
19:26:36  <petern> </rant>

19:33:37  <Rubidium> and if there's a library called iconv, why can't it link against that?
19:35:32  <Belugas> as usual, petern, as usual... Same when you're doing a certif.  "Pass me a debit transaction with a credit". "But i cannot, I check the service code after swiping" "Dont' care, i have that test to verify"
19:35:35  <Belugas> prrrrrrrt
19:37:13  <frosch123> hmm, I have an "iconv.h" but no libiconv, and dev-libs/libiconv is masked and not emerged
19:39:03  <frosch123> iconv.h seems to come from glibc
19:40:41  <scarabeus> /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/4.3.2/../../../../x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -liconv
19:41:00  <scarabeus> it really is not working without that patchie
19:41:08  <frosch123> yup, and configure only checks for iconv.h, which exists
19:41:32  <Rubidium> ah... so that lovely OS called OSX is doing even more non-standard things...
19:41:59  <frosch123> and the "copyright note" of iconv.h refers to glibc, which also contains the symbols defined in the .h
19:42:41  <scarabeus> yeah this is apple issue

19:45:37  <Sacro> I don't think Arch needs it
19:45:52  <Sacro> ldd doesn't show it
19:46:57  <scarabeus> so no need for gentoo and arch
19:47:04  <scarabeus> i would say no need in POSIX systems
19:48:17  <Rubidium> it's just that OSX needs it and is posix compliant
19:48:23  <glx> it's needed for windows :)
19:48:35  <glx> but iconv is optionnal there
19:49:06  <Rubidium> so there needs to be a test that checks whether -liconv is needed or not
19:49:52  <scarabeus> Rubidium: well i think about osX as something that says that it is posix compilant
19:49:53  <scarabeus> :D
19:50:24  <glx> it's BSD based

21:17:00  <scarabeus> hey the person i am waiting for :]
21:17:01  <TrueBrain> scarabeus: sorry, working long hours lately
21:17:11  <scarabeus> no prob.
21:17:19  <TrueBrain> :)
21:17:20  <TrueBrain> finally ;)
21:17:47  <TrueBrain> I see iconv patch is committed :)
21:17:59  <scarabeus> yes i convinced the others :]
21:18:44  <TrueBrain> nice job ;)
21:19:08  <TrueBrain> the problem I have with iconv in ebuild ... is that we produce iconv-less binaries for .. well .. as long as this project is here, and as far as I can track, never had a problem
21:19:35  <TrueBrain> as it slows down the game a bit, and most Gentoo users have 'iconv' in their USE, I wonder if it would do more harm than good ..
21:19:50  <ln> what does the patch do?
21:20:17  <scarabeus> nopes we have really fast systems and systems from 2004 does not have iconv by default
21:20:32  <scarabeus> so we are pretty ok in this
21:20:47  <scarabeus> i am more concerned about that elog talkie in the end of the ebuild
21:20:50  <scarabeus> did you read that
21:20:55  <TrueBrain> hehe, 'really fast systems' is not a real argument ;)
21:21:30  <TrueBrain> I have a 2007.1 and 2008.0 base install, and 'iconv' is active by default ..
21:21:43  <scarabeus> hm
21:21:47  <scarabeus> 2008.0 not enabled
21:22:44  <TrueBrain> but what about the elog?
21:22:50  <scarabeus> desktop $ cat make.defaults  |grep iconv
21:23:00  <scarabeus> if i am not saying some wrong stuff in there
21:23:05  <scarabeus> so it is correct :]
21:23:12  <scarabeus> but i guess i didnt miss anything
21:24:34  <TrueBrain> why oh why do you need to modify my ebuild completely every time ;) Lol :p
21:24:45  <TrueBrain> I make it more readable for myself, you put everything back in one statemet :p
21:25:03  <scarabeus> i need to convince mr_bones to open games overlay for users
21:25:06  <TrueBrain> and the annoying DESTDIR got back in :p Get that out for good will you? :)
21:25:09  <scarabeus> so this wont happen :]
21:25:20  <scarabeus> and i am just lazy to post diffs
21:25:58  <TrueBrain> +       use dedicated && myopts="${myopts} --enable-dedicated --without-sdl"
21:25:58  <TrueBrain> -       else
21:25:58  <TrueBrain> -               myopts="${myopts} --enable-dedicated"
21:26:01  <TrueBrain> diff between mine and yours
21:26:06  <TrueBrain> I like mine better (the '-' one)
21:26:23  <TrueBrain> --without-sdl is not needed (--enable-dedicated disables all video outputs)
21:26:28  <scarabeus> ook
21:26:41  <TrueBrain> (there is a reason I change things :p)
21:27:26  <TrueBrain> and the elog stuff at the end looks good to me
21:27:36  <TrueBrain> I am sure someone can write a better story, but it is clear, and understandable
21:27:42  <TrueBrain> (and not false)
21:28:22  <TrueBrain> btw, 'layman -o -a openttd'
21:28:30  <TrueBrain> contains 'openttd-trunk' and 'openttd-noai'
21:28:35  <TrueBrain> (nightly-builds, ebuild is updated every night)
21:28:52  <TrueBrain> I will merge your changes back into them soon :)
21:29:07  <TrueBrain> I still wonder about 'iconv', but I don't really care .. so we just keep it :)

21:29:58  <TrueBrain> (so that is a no :))
21:30:01  <scarabeus> :D
21:30:26  <scarabeus> it means that someone write the ebuild and gets the credit, dev is used only to commit the ebuild into cvs and for reviewing
21:30:48  <scarabeus> well i am not sure if mr_bones will allow this to me because i am not member of games herd...
21:31:17  <TrueBrain> sorry, I don't understand what you try to say ..
21:31:48  <scarabeus> well that means you would be the manintainer since you have the live ebuild and so on...
21:31:57  <scarabeus> and i or other dev could do the commiting
21:32:15  <scarabeus> so not again waiting 2-3 months for next release
21:32:22  <scarabeus> but as i say i have to ask mr_bones first
21:32:38  <TrueBrain> hehe, it is a bit insane for OpenTTD currently .. :p
21:32:44  <TrueBrain> having a 0.5 in the portage ...
21:33:11  <scarabeus> actualy i am waiting if they will accept me in games herd, so if they i have some plans about games status in gentoo :]
21:34:24  <TrueBrain> Anyway, I was happy to see someone else taking an interest in the OpenTTD ebuild :)
21:35:35  <SmatZ> yeah :-)
21:36:01  <TrueBrain> and I really hope they remove the hard mask from 0.6.3 soon .. as you can't override that mask from within an overlay (or at least, all my attempts failed)
21:36:50  <scarabeus> you can do it :P just create profile/package.unmask iirc this should still work
21:36:59  <TrueBrain> scarabeus: STILL 'DESTDIR' ..
21:37:03  <scarabeus> or Documentation/package.unmask which user simlink
21:37:06  <TrueBrain> do I need to slap you with a fish or something? :p Hehe
21:37:07  <scarabeus> Damn
21:37:16  <TrueBrain> scarabeus: check my overlay .. it contains that file, and it doesn't work :(
21:37:31  <TrueBrain> (not from within the overlay, that is)
21:37:46  <scarabeus> :(
21:37:55  <TrueBrain> and a VERY minor thing:
21:37:57  <TrueBrain> myopts="${myopts} --enable-dedicated " <- extra space :p
21:37:59  <TrueBrain> hahaha :)
21:38:03  <TrueBrain> (sorry, I couldn't resist :))
21:38:13  <scarabeus> that is why i use git first
21:38:19  <scarabeus> or cvs
21:38:29  <scarabeus> because pple can tell me what they dont like
21:38:31  <scarabeus> and i fix it
21:38:49  <TrueBrain> the reason OpenTTD uses SVN, Git or Mercurial too, yes :)
21:39:02  <scarabeus> ok i will not update it again
21:39:06  <TrueBrain> but we are getting there ;)
21:39:07  <scarabeus> or i will burn our old bugzilla
21:39:15  <scarabeus> and you update your live ebuild
21:39:26  <scarabeus> and we use live ebuild as base for 0.6.4
21:39:30  <SmatZ> :-)
21:39:41  <SmatZ> if there will be 0.6.4
21:39:42  <scarabeus> since i am sure that i wont get clearance before that release
21:39:44  <TrueBrain> there won't be any, most likely, but 0.7 ;)
21:39:53  <scarabeus> ok so make it 0.7
21:40:02  <TrueBrain> btw, if you check openttd-trunk on that url (you can walk it via http)
21:40:07  <TrueBrain> it contains 'icu' as dep
21:40:13  <TrueBrain> (required with recent versions)
21:41:09  <SmatZ> optional :-P
21:41:28  <TrueBrain> of course :)

21:41:53  <SmatZ> -n
21:42:23  <scarabeus> nononono no icu
21:42:35  <scarabeus> because in that case we would have to move this flag from local to global :D
21:42:56  <TrueBrain> how do you mean?

21:45:47  *** Metalcore is now known as MetalDiningHall
21:46:37  <scarabeus> btw is there any way of replacing grf files with something open? i know that noone cares that it is abandonware...
21:47:00  <Eddi|zuHause> there is an OpenGFX project ongoing
21:47:30  <SmatZ> it is possible, but there are no sets with all GRFs replaced
21:47:59  <SmatZ> except
21:48:02  <Eddi|zuHause> some work has already been done to make the game capable of switching between the base sets, but the open sets are not finished yet
21:48:39  <scarabeus> is there some progress bar? :]
21:48:55  <Zuu> An empty could do the job, can't it (or even making optional), as playing without sound is not a big problem.
21:49:25  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't know... the forum has a graphics section, and probably the wiki has information about it, but i have not looked at anything specific
21:50:08  <Eddi|zuHause> Zuu: afaik having not the correct amount of sounds in causes trouble with newgrfs containing sounds
21:50:20  <TrueBrain> testing my latest ebuilds ...
21:50:55  <Eddi|zuHause> Zuu: but i think there is a full set of replacement sounds in the forum, only it depends on a patch to have more than 8bit sounds in
21:51:30  <Zuu> Okay, I've seen the project but didn't knew they got that far.
21:52:34  <scarabeus> well in that case we can make that installable on gentoo and maybe some users will help with improvements
21:52:39  <TrueBrain> scarabeus: <- if you would mind reading it over .. it is 0.6.3, without scenarios (we don't do that for nightlies), with 'icu' (which I wonder about the most), and some customized warning at the end ;)
21:53:56  <TrueBrain> (it btw fails on iconv currently, but tomorrow night that iwll be fixed .. I don't feel like adding a patch for 24 hours of not working :p)

22:00:06  <TrueBrain> bah, Rubidium, your patch doesn't work on 0.6.3 out-of-the-box ..
22:00:08  <TrueBrain> let me backport :p
22:01:03  <TrueBrain> okay, it does work, just 'trac' fucks up :(
22:01:18  *** MURRAY is now known as murray
22:01:25  <scarabeus>
22:01:35  <scarabeus> this add into pkg_setup
22:01:37  <Zuu> Night all
22:01:39  *** Zuu [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
22:01:40  <scarabeus> or into something like that
22:03:06  *** bleepy [] has joined #openttd
22:03:27  <TrueBrain> scarabeus:
22:03:32  <TrueBrain> use that as libiconv.patch, is what I would suggest
22:03:37  <TrueBrain> a proper backport of the real fix :)
22:03:50  <scarabeus> ok add it yourself aw
22:04:01  <scarabeus> you dont have access to block my additions
22:04:04  <scarabeus> ok i will do
22:05:25  <TrueBrain> ;) Tnx!
22:05:31  <TrueBrain> updated -trunk and -noai with your suggestion
22:05:51  <TrueBrain> oh, you said pkg_setup .. does that matter?
22:06:57  <scarabeus> not actualy it is just common sense to write this *before* the actual merge
22:07:05  <scarabeus> so user can break it and think again
22:07:22  <TrueBrain> k
22:07:24  <TrueBrain> pkg_setup it will be
22:08:07  <scarabeus> also i can see i missed two ewarns so promote them into elog
22:08:39  <TrueBrain> sorry?
22:08:48  <scarabeus> well there are two ewarn commands
22:08:56  <scarabeus> s/ewarn/elog/
22:09:02  <scarabeus> nothing more nothing less
22:10:11  <TrueBrain> you mean those about the dedicated? You mean they should be 'elog', not 'ewarn'?
22:11:20  *** Mark [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
22:12:41  <scarabeus> well elog is written again after all other merges ended up
22:12:44  <scarabeus> ewarn is not
22:12:58  <scarabeus> so i guess people should see it even when compiling lots of packages at once
22:13:06  <TrueBrain> ewarn shows up at the end too here ...
22:13:35  <TrueBrain> but elog is fine by me :)
22:14:21  <TrueBrain> all changed
22:14:24  <TrueBrain> including the openttd-0.6.3.ebuild
22:15:18  <TrueBrain> I hope I didn't forget/missed anything :)
22:17:50  <TrueBrain> anyway, I really should find my bed now .. tnx a lot scarabeus for all the feedback and help :) I hope this ebuild gets in portage very soon .. but I am afraid it will not :)
22:17:58  <TrueBrain> Good luck with getting into games herd :)
22:18:01  <TrueBrain> and good night to you all!

22:24:47  <scarabeus> well i am going to bed too
22:24:53  <scarabeus> so see you tomorow all :]
22:24:56  <Bjarni> it would be kind of scary if I came home one day and the pillow and stuff were on the floor since the bed ran away
22:25:06  <ln> with a constant number of Sacros waiting on the bed?
22:25:15  <Bjarni> o_O
22:25:19  <Bjarni> >_<
22:25:36  <Bjarni> that would be really bad
22:25:48  <Bjarni> I would have to figure out how to get rid of the bodies
22:26:01  <ln> my bed has a constant number of Sacros, and that's zero.
22:26:09  <Bjarni> good point

23:03:08  <SmatZ> hello, ben
23:03:56  <ben_goodger> is anything happening?
23:04:34  <SmatZ> not really...
23:04:36  <Rubidium> besides the usual debugging not much I think
23:06:06  *** Vikthor [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
23:09:28  <ben_goodger> how annoying
23:09:47  <SmatZ> what would make you happy, ben_goodger?
23:10:20  <ben_goodger> probably only a huge dose of tricyclics, melatonin and years of intensive psychotherapy
23:10:41  * SmatZ can't provide
23:10:43  <ben_goodger> but for this evening, I was hoping for some sort of stimulating discussion about openttd or some such thing, as is usual for this channel
23:11:10  <SmatZ> too late I am afraid :(
23:11:21  <Rubidium> ben_goodger: go to OpenTTD's wikipedia deletion page!
23:11:22  <ben_goodger> otherwise, I may be forced to read this book on financial resources planning
23:11:42  <ben_goodger> ack, wikipedia is administered by a lot of prats...
23:13:30  <glx> they are silly
23:14:14  <ben_goodger> as recently discussed on slashdot, evidence is considered less important than citation
23:14:16  <SmatZ> ben_goodger: go read that book, don't let (O)TTD(P) stop you from reading it / studying!
23:14:28  <ben_goodger> I'm not studying finance, that's the trouble
23:14:55  <ben_goodger> I just got it out of the library because it is 472 pages long and will therefore occupy a lot of otherwise wasted time in reading it
23:15:11  <Rubidium> or... write a scientifical paper about OpenTTD so OpenTTD becomes notable
23:15:19  <ben_goodger> hmm
23:15:33  <SmatZ> ben_goodger, you are strange :-)
23:15:38  <ben_goodger> yes, yes I am
23:15:42  <ben_goodger> thank you for your support
23:15:47  <ben_goodger> I believe I will do an overall rewrite and pile in the citations on this article
23:15:59  <ben_goodger> stop those officious bastards from deleting it...
23:16:07  <SmatZ> :-)
23:17:00  * Rubidium wonders what a scientific paper about the notability criteria applied on the OpenTTD page on wikipedia would do for the notability of OpenTTD
23:17:53  <SmatZ> :-)
23:18:16  <Nite_Owl> I need to feed - later all

23:18:41  <ben_goodger> hmm
23:18:57  <ben_goodger> openttd is written only partly in C++, yes?
23:19:38  <Rubidium> depends on the definition of C++
23:19:54  <Rubidium> technically all of OpenTTD is compilable as C++
23:20:06  <Rubidium> though large parts are also compilable as C
23:20:50  <ln> deleting articles is wikipedists' way of feeling important.
23:20:53  <SmatZ> OTTD uses non-standard-compliant C++ :) but luckily it compiles by most compilers :-)
23:21:28  <ben_goodger> right...
23:22:10  <Rubidium> the most used compilers don't even complain about it
23:24:07  <glx> <@SmatZ> OTTD uses non-standard-compliant C++ :) but luckily it compiles by most compilers :-) <-- with some hacks for gcc 2.95 ;)
23:24:16  <SmatZ> hehe :-)
23:24:27  <glx> but it compiles and works
23:25:24  <Rubidium> gcc 2.95 isn't a C++ compiler, more a C+0 compiler ;)
23:25:29  <SmatZ> :-)
23:26:57  <ben_goodger> there's a GCC 2?
23:27:05  <ben_goodger> good lord, I'm too young for this
23:28:11  <Rubidium> ben_goodger: you don't want to know
23:28:28  <ben_goodger> you are correcg
23:30:55  <ben_goodger> gah, this article is exceedingly difficult to write

23:47:39  <ben_goodger> night
23:47:54  <ben_goodger> how's the following?:
23:47:55  <ben_goodger> OpenTTD is an open source simulation game based around transport networks. It originated as a decompiled clone of Transport Tycoon Deluxe, but now incorporates many new features, most notably a multiplayer mode, support for internationalisation, a number of AI and user interface enhancements, and gameplay innovations similar to those found in TTDPatch.
23:47:55  <ben_goodger> The player is given a job as the managing director of one of several competing transport companies that operate within a particular region. Beginning with only a modest bank loan, the player must plan routes, build infrastructure, build and maintain vehicles and maintain their company's image in order to maximise profitability and achieve the highest company value by the end of the game.
23:47:56  <ben_goodger> The game requires many of the original data files from a retail copy of TTD to play. Free-content graphics are presently being produced in order to eliminate this dependency.[1]
23:49:52  <Rubidium> it's currently possible to run OpenTTD without any of the original data files
23:49:55  <SmatZ> I think "-decompiled" ... and we got rid of that "clone" word recently, too :)
23:51:25  <Eddi|zuHause> IMHO OpenTTD should be a subsection of a Transport Tycoon article, it does not really warrant a separate article
23:51:35  <ben_goodger> it says "clone" in big letters on the homepage
23:52:45  <Eddi|zuHause> it was never decompliled
23:53:04  <Eddi|zuHause> at best it was disassembled and reverse engineered
23:54:31  <ben_goodger> ok then...
23:56:35  <Eddi|zuHause> i'd probably say "... is a reimplementation in C++"
23:58:21  <ben_goodger> very well
