00:10:34  <db48x> Yexo: how's that?
00:11:08  <Yexo> struct spot_data
00:11:08  <Yexo>  <- structs should have capitalized names, without _
00:11:12  <Yexo> so SpotData
00:11:27  <Yexo> and imo SpotData doesn't tell what it's used for
00:12:15  <Yexo> you only use radius once, and you never change it
00:12:19  <Yexo> please make it a constant instead
00:12:33  <Yexo> + * @author db48x
00:12:33  <Yexo>  <- we don't use that in openttd
00:13:13  <db48x> it's in the coding style page :)
00:14:30  <Yexo> not anymore ;)
00:14:43  <db48x> heh
00:14:52  <db48x> hmm
00:15:13  <db48x> I put the radius in the struct because otherwise I would need two constants that would have to be kept in sync
00:15:40  <Yexo> why?
00:16:22  <db48x> well, actually I don't any more
00:16:22  <Yexo> radius is only used once as far as I can see
00:16:36  <db48x> yea, now that I'm using GetClosestWaterDistance
00:17:05  *** Nite_Owl [] has quit [Quit: Read You Soon]
00:17:07  <db48x> before, I was limiting that search for water to the original radius, because I know that the water can never be further away than that
00:17:54  <Yexo> I've added an example for multiline if-statements here:
00:18:09  <Yexo> use tabs instead of spaces, but that's not possible on the wiki
00:18:25  <db48x> of course
00:18:33  <Yexo> hmm, you already did that one correct I see now
00:18:56  <Yexo> +  return false;
00:18:56  <Yexo>  <- still spaces
00:19:42  <db48x> mmm
00:20:59  <db48x> well, I must run
00:21:03  <db48x> thank you for your help
00:21:13  <Yexo> +	/* if we get here, all we can do is give up and return the original tile */
00:21:13  <Yexo>  <- shouldn't you return INVALID_TILE instead?
00:21:22  *** Vikthor [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
00:21:30  <db48x> mmm, perhaps
00:21:43  <Yexo> +		 * always a possibility <- next lines uses spaces instead of tabs
00:21:59  <db48x> I believe I just fixed that
00:21:59  <Yexo> and that */ should be on the same line, not on a new one
00:22:23  <Yexo> if (t->population > 0) { <- that lines, and the lines below it, I'd replace that with:
00:22:32  <Yexo> if (t->population > 0) return t;
00:22:35  <Yexo> delete t;
00:22:47  <db48x> fair enough
00:23:15  <db48x> ok, I really have to go.
00:23:31  <Yexo> this apparently didn't happen very often before, but it was
00:23:31  <Yexo>  <- that comment shouldn't be in the source code, can you image anyone reading the code in about a year? (what is "before" at that time?)

02:28:31  <Yexo> yes, by holding ctrl when you build the station
02:28:45  <Yexo> it won't be the same station though

02:45:25  <DarkED> hi all
02:47:26  <DarkED> i'm having a problem hosting an openttd server. i've configured my router to pass thru tcp/udp ports 3979 but it doesn't seem to be working. if i set my router to DMZ mode it works, but then I can't use any other computers on my network so that's only a temporary fix
02:49:07  <DarkED> am i missing some ports or something?
02:49:19  <Aali> nope
02:49:29  <DarkED> hmm :(
02:55:45  <DarkED> does openttd use ICMP for anything?

08:15:01  <Roest> morning

08:30:42  *** Mortomes [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
08:33:55  <flowOver> probably something in the code i'm thinking.  with alltakens pack, when i zoom in the intersections aren't displayed, but rather another random tile and it creates artifacts as you move the view around.  without the pack it shows the regular default graphics on extra zoom instead of the 32bpp original scale graphics i have installed
08:54:58  *** Progman [] has joined #openttd
08:59:00  <Roest> is there like a grf or setting that removes the sound of road/rail crossings?
09:01:26  <petern> yes
09:03:09  <Roest> which one of the two?
09:07:31  <petern> grf
09:09:29  <petern> "32bpp zoom" is a pointless exercise

09:20:15  <Roest> do you happen to have a link to that grf?
09:20:19  <petern> no
09:21:07  <flowOver> the point is more detail in graphics and i like that.  plus my roomies 1080i screen doesn't show finer details well when in windowed mode.  it looks far more awesome zoomed in

12:46:12  <dihedral> fix it :-P

12:53:29  <petern> Roest, borked?
12:53:47  <petern> you mean it shows "STOP" or "MORE" but you haven't figured out it's an instruction?
12:54:07  <Roest> red question marks instead of wagons
12:54:12  <petern> quite so
12:54:26  <petern> ice3 should be made in 4, 8, or 16 lengths

13:51:46  <welshdragon> the local authority refuses to allow this
13:52:02  <glx> is it a "border" road?
13:52:15  <welshdragon> no, inner city
13:52:28  <welshdragon> i have managed to delet all the border roads

13:53:07  <welshdragon> *cough* can't be bothered *cough* :P
13:53:07  <glx> if it's in a loop, it's quite impossible to remove without cheating
13:53:16  <dihedral> welshdragon, and we should be?
13:53:26  <welshdragon> dihedral: point takren
13:53:32  <dihedral> i would hope so
13:55:16  <welshdragon>  dihedral searching the wiki found nothing
13:55:31  <dihedral> and what was your search term?
13:55:49  <welshdragon> remove more town owned roads
13:56:50  <Timitry>
13:57:10  <Timitry> Searching for town + road, first hit, ctrl + f and searching for "road" again
13:57:12  <dihedral> welshdragon, so you entered one single search term, and gave up?
13:57:50  <dihedral> + you should always check your rating if you cannot remove some town owned stuff / or if LA refuses something
13:58:06  <dihedral> and if that aint good enough for your action (compare with wiki)
13:58:17  <dihedral> then you can bribe and/or plant trees
13:58:49  <welshdragon> hmm, did i mention it's a multiplayer
13:58:50  <welshdragon> ?
13:59:03  <glx> that's another story ;)
13:59:22  <welshdragon> bleh :P
13:59:25  <glx> you can forget cheats then
13:59:40  <welshdragon> cheats are enabled i think

14:00:37  <welshdragon> well, i don't know
14:00:44  <dihedral> that i can more imagine :-P
14:01:29  <dihedral> multiplayer generally does not allow cheating, however the svn / map loaded can mention that cheats were used

15:41:03  <Eddi|zuHause> really... the only thing that's missing is a cheat for "ignore town rating"
15:42:40  <dihedral> petern, because people join spectator, create a new company, remove something in the town, then join their original company again, and continue as if nothing happened
15:43:59  <Rubidium> so they then build a station and remove something?

16:00:05  <Rubidium> lets do that by deduction?

16:09:20  <dihedral> petern, Rubidium: ideas welcome, i am happy to code it ;-)
16:10:33  <Rubidium> dihedral: what about forbidding to start new companies?
16:10:38  <Eddi|zuHause> imho, it should be "exponential" (as in pseudo-floating-point), that would avoid the problem of hitting a "minimum" rating (e.g. by removing 200 trees in the area)
16:11:14  <Eddi|zuHause> the first dozen trees should have a big effect on rating, the next 188 should have hardly any further effect
16:11:50  <Eddi|zuHause> but likewise it would take more than 188 new trees to get back to the area where trees actually make a difference
16:13:23  <Ammler> dihedral: you could also forbid creating a company for that reason by "house" rules.
16:15:41  <Eddi|zuHause> dihedral: just check for "multi accounts" from the same IP. should (mostly) solve that particular abuse
16:16:47  <Ammler> indeed, that is a IDEA. :-)
16:17:18  <Eddi|zuHause> also imho, there should be a "global" rating that will be used as a base for each individual town rating, if you have a good rating in all other towns, you get a bonus for dropping low in one town.
16:17:44  <Eddi|zuHause> then you can lower the default town rating for new companies to a level where they can hardly do anything in a town
16:18:14  <Eddi|zuHause> while established companies can do a significantly higher amount of "damage" to a city they are just starting to develop
16:20:07  <Rubidium> so effectively an established company may plow with their goods line straight through a city and a new company can't build a bus stop in a town?
16:20:37  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: there needs to be some balancing for that
16:20:46  *** stillunk1own [] has joined #openttd
16:21:46  <Rubidium> but the balancing will allow a new company to remove a house/building, thus doing exactly what dihedral wants to prevent
16:21:49  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: basically the reasoning is that an "established, well-known" company has an advance-credit
16:22:33  <Rubidium> a well known company (in a town) can already destroy more than a new one
16:22:38  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: rather, do not allow destroying a bulding, but allow some road reconstruction (including roadstops on town-road)
16:23:07  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, and i wanted to make that rating slightly more global
16:23:31  <Eddi|zuHause> so that a big company does not have too serious micromanaging problems when expanding to a new town
16:23:56  <Rubidium> so because DBs reputation is good they may destroy the center of Londen to build a rail line through it?
16:24:17  <Eddi|zuHause> so basically, an established company can do about what it can do now, but a new company should be able to do significantly less
16:25:05  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: it's about an initial bonus, the town rating would still drop as soon as you destroy houses and stuff

23:34:45  <DarkED> hey all... i need some help. i'm running ubuntu 8.10. openttd is running way slower on ubuntu than it does in windows, to the point it's unplayable. in windows it runs so fast it's awesome. is there anything i can do? can i force it to use opengl instead of SDL maybe?
23:35:23  <Rubidium> do you, by any chance, have timidity installed?
23:35:30  <Rubidium> or rather, does it play the music?
23:35:31  <glx> try a 32bpp blitter
23:35:58  <glx> or try fullscreen
23:36:11  <DarkED> Rubidium, i do, yes. even when i didnt have timidity installed it was still way too slow
23:36:19  <DarkED> glx, will do that real quick, thanks
23:36:45  <Rubidium> timidity 'wastes' 50-90% CPU on my system, making OpenTTD unplayable
23:37:18  <DarkED> glx, tried 32bpp-anim blitter. still the same speed
23:37:19  <Rubidium> so not playing music; openttd -m null could make it playable
23:37:39  <glx> 32bpp-anim is the slowest :)
23:37:40  <DarkED> Rubidium, i'll uninstall timidity and see if it's any vetter
23:37:53  <glx> but 32bpp-optimized should work fine
23:38:17  <DarkED> holy cow
23:38:20  <DarkED> yeah it's fast
23:38:31  <DarkED> with optimized blitter i mean
23:38:37  <DarkED> what's the difference? i cant see any
23:38:40  <SmatZ> hmm interesting
23:38:44  <Rubidium> the animation
23:38:59  <SmatZ> DarkED: try turning off "Full animation" with your regular blitter
23:39:03  <Rubidium> so disabling animation in-game would probably give the same effect
23:39:06  <Eddi|zuHause> 8bpp-optimised is supposed to be the fastest, but maybe your graphics card driver lacks 2d-acceleration for that?
23:39:19  *** Mortal [] has joined #openttd
23:39:38  <DarkED> Eddi|zuHause, it's a geforce 5950 ultra. so i think it could do 8bit. lemme check
23:40:02  *** Yeggzzz [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:40:10  <glx> yes it can do 8bpp but if the driver sucks...
23:40:13  <DarkED> 8bpp is even slower than 32bpp-anim :D so i guess not
23:40:13  <Eddi|zuHause> it doesn't really matter what the card can do, the bottleneck is usually the driver
23:40:25  <SmatZ> from the benchmarks I have done, there is just a little difference between 8bpp-optimized and 32bpp-anim when Full animation is enabled

23:42:35  <DarkED> i removed timidity, and i'm running it in 32bpp-optimized. that helps ALOT. but it's still not nearly as fast as it should be
