00:00:21  *** Cybertinus [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:07:50  <orudge> woo, a fresh install of OS/2 actually seems to be working for me now in VMWare
00:09:26  *** vittorio [] has joined #openttd
00:09:38  <vittorio> hi
00:09:46  *** vittorio is now known as koda
00:10:12  <koda> first time visit, so nick is wrong ^^
00:11:01  <PeterT> :-)
00:11:18  <PeterT> orudge: is there any benefit in using OS/2?
00:11:28  <orudge> well
00:11:38  <orudge> I don't use it personally, but I created the OS/2 port of OpenTTD
00:11:42  <orudge> but have been unable to build new binaries for a few months
00:11:49  <orudge> I'd like to get some 0.7.5 and 1.0.0-beta 1 binaries out :)
00:12:24  <PeterT> why do you make binaries for it?
00:12:32  <PeterT> is it a popular system to play openttd on?
00:12:35  <glx> because we have users
00:12:35  <orudge> so that those who do use OS/2 can play OpenTTD
00:12:46  <orudge> OpenTTD is quite popular amongst OS/2 users it seems
00:12:51  <orudge> there aren't that many OS/2 users
00:12:54  <orudge> but there are some :)
00:13:21  <PeterT> is this how ugly all OS/2 desktops are?
00:13:35  <orudge> probably
00:13:37  *** Chillosophy [] has quit []
00:13:42  <_ln> no, that's the Warp 4 desktop
00:13:58  <PeterT> looks quite old
00:14:01  <orudge> well
00:14:02  <orudge> it is quite old
00:14:07  <orudge> eComStation is much more modern
00:14:11  <orudge>
00:14:13  <orudge> although
00:14:14  <orudge> it's still OS/2
00:14:19  <orudge> but you can run many modern apps on it
00:14:31  <orudge> many more than people probably realise
00:14:45  <koda> i've read of the deprecation of the macosx port
00:14:57  <koda> has someone showed up?
00:15:10  <orudge> well, I don't think we have an "official" OS X developer at the moment
00:15:19  <Eddi|zuHause> only a handful of fixes, not an official developer
00:15:28  <PeterT> What happened to Bjarni?
00:15:33  <Eddi|zuHause> and especially noone to code 10.6 support
00:15:47  <Eddi|zuHause> PeterT: who? :p
00:15:54  <glx> RL issues
00:16:02  <PeterT> the mac osx port guy
00:16:08  * orudge does have a shiny new MacBook Pro with 10.6, but alas, he's not particularly familiar with the OS X-specifics bits of OS X programming :p
00:16:30  <_ln> excuses
00:16:43  <glx> and apple is good at breaking compatibility when API is updated
00:16:48  <orudge> quite
00:16:56  <orudge> of course, I can support OpenTTD on Wine on OS X ;)
00:16:58  <orudge> as hideous as it may be
00:17:11  <koda> well i'm going to check out the sources and see if i can lend a hand :)
00:17:22  <PeterT> I don't understand wine
00:17:24  <PeterT> on linux
00:17:28  <PeterT> running openttd
00:17:35  <PeterT> where is the openttd.cfg?
00:17:40  <PeterT> not in the binary dir, anyways
00:17:40  <orudge> it's wherever you left it
00:17:43  <orudge> well
00:17:52  <orudge> on Windows, openttd.cfg goes into My Documents, I do believe
00:17:54  <Eddi|zuHause> PeterT: same place as on windows
00:17:54  <orudge> by default
00:17:59  <glx> in mydocs
00:18:05  <PeterT> I looked there
00:18:06  <PeterT> well
00:18:11  <PeterT> I'll have to test it again later
00:18:14  <PeterT> I'm on windows now
00:18:46  <glx> anyway why run openttd with wine when there's a native port
00:18:48  <Eddi|zuHause> PeterT: by default, mydocs is mapped on /home/<user>
00:19:16  <PeterT> anyway why run openttd with wine when there's a native port <-- some libraries aren't statically linked
00:19:32  <glx> compile yourself :)
00:19:39  <glx> it's very easy on linux
00:19:41  *** tdev [] has joined #openttd
00:19:47  <PeterT> you don't need to tell me
00:19:52  <Eddi|zuHause> PeterT: but most distributions offer a correct package
00:20:16  <glx> and now most libs are linked statically IIRC
00:20:30  <glx> especially ICU
00:21:28  <PeterT> IS2.0-beta5 didn't have them statically linked
00:21:43  <glx> it's not official
00:21:53  <glx> I don't care about non official builds :)
00:21:54  <PeterT> keeping in mind IS binaries are compiled with the compile farm, same thing that compiles nightlies....
00:26:04  *** Eddi|zuHause [] has quit []
00:26:30  *** Eddi|zuHause [] has joined #openttd
00:27:40  <koda> openttd is the first crossplatform game i see that is not build with cmake
00:27:44  <koda> built*
00:28:01  <orudge> you've not seen many games, perhaps, I guess ;)
00:29:08  <koda> yeah not many :p
00:29:55  <Eddi|zuHause> it's funny that we don't use cmake _because_ of the cross-platform-ness ;)
00:30:15  <koda> what do you mean?
00:30:40  <Eddi|zuHause> with cmake it was impossible to set up an osx cross compiler
00:30:53  *** Zuu [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:31:54  <koda> ah that's bad :(
00:32:21  <Eddi|zuHause> it's not "bad", we were like the first people to ever try to do that...
00:32:30  <planetmaker> there are not many places which do use a cross compiler
00:32:58  <koda> yeah a native build environment is always better, if possibile
00:33:29  <glx> but we did an impossible thing :)
00:34:08  <koda> i don't get this:
00:34:10  <koda> checking SDL... OSX, skipping
00:34:10  <koda> checking COCOA... found
00:34:21  <orudge> well
00:34:22  <glx> SDL is broken on OSX
00:34:26  <orudge> it's looking for the SDL library, which isn't there
00:34:27  <glx> not our fault
00:34:29  <orudge> oh, well, yes
00:34:40  <koda> what do you mean broken?
00:34:40  <planetmaker> well... not broken. But slower
00:34:46  <planetmaker> you don't use it on windows either
00:34:54  <koda> only on linux?
00:35:14  <Eddi|zuHause> and on half a dozen other platforms
00:35:18  <glx> we can use it on windows (but only for mingw by default, and dynamically loaded)
00:35:40  <PeterT> is the compile farm a dedicated server/computer?
00:35:50  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
00:35:51  *** zodttd [] has joined #openttd
00:35:53  <glx> and it's just a layer around native calls, so better use native calls
00:35:59  <planetmaker> it's certainly glx' laptop or iphone
00:36:24  <PeterT> Lol
00:36:39  <PeterT> well, if I really wanted, I could do it on my laptop
00:36:40  <glx> not really dedicated, but VMs on our server
00:36:50  <PeterT> over a span of weeks
00:37:14  <planetmaker> I only work on my laptop on OpenTTD ;-)
00:37:57  <koda> lol, -I/Users/mike/Documents/darwine/usr/include/libpng12 , any non-mike people will have hard times at compiling  :)
00:38:32  <planetmaker> wth is that from?
00:38:52  <koda> from svn in the CFLAGS configure output
00:39:20  <Eddi|zuHause> well, of course, every other person will get a different configure output
00:39:41  <planetmaker> configure does what it says: configure for where it is being built and installed
00:39:41  <Eddi|zuHause> that's what configure is for
00:40:02  <koda> yeah, too bad my name is vittorio and i have no user called mike :)
00:40:27  <Eddi|zuHause> then your system is heavily screwed up
00:40:31  <planetmaker> ^
00:40:44  <PeterT> It's so that your linux doesn't compile windows files
00:40:51  <PeterT> and vice-versa
00:41:16  <Eddi|zuHause> ... and his osx doesn't compile at all :p
00:41:59  <PeterT> nope, osx users must compile with shovel and ax
00:43:39  <koda> well, i got up to the linking stage
00:43:50  <PeterT> let me guess, an error?
00:44:05  <koda> missing png12, but that's fixable
00:44:09  <PeterT> ah
00:44:19  <PeterT> are you compiling clean trunk or a patch build?
00:44:46  <koda> trunk, with some patches at the
00:44:46  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't know of any mike person ever involved with the build system...
00:44:48  <planetmaker> for that kind of error the question is irrelevant ;-)
00:45:27  <planetmaker> koda: so... you modify, add a mike there and wonder about? ;-)
00:45:56  <koda> but i did not add any mike :-S
00:46:24  <peter1138> not our fault if your system is messed up :D

00:47:13  <peter1138> yours says /Users/mike ... etc
00:48:15  <koda> i'm going to investigate that after i get a working build...
00:48:39  <PeterT> if
00:49:13  <peter1138> well you need that fixed to _get_ a working build
00:49:16  <planetmaker> koda: you can always specify the linker path manually
00:49:35  <planetmaker> maybe you have funny environ settings
00:49:43  <peter1138> btw, is SDL really slower on OSX, or was it just slower on bjarni's system with 8bpp?
00:49:45  <planetmaker> +ment
00:49:50  <peter1138> if it is, as said, just a wrapper...
00:50:17  <Eddi|zuHause> no, it was said: sdl on windows is just a wrapper
00:50:27  <planetmaker> in order to give really an answer I'd have to really test that :-)

01:05:35  <_ln> koda: build system is not the issue with the Mac version (nor others)
01:06:19  <_ln> koda: besides, cmake is a pain in the ... if you want to compile for a system which doesn't have it installed and you don't have root access.
01:07:25  <koda> ... which is rarely the case
01:07:46  <_ln> depends
01:07:57  <koda> i was just puzzled by the configure script, it's really well done
01:08:22  <koda> but it's the first i analyze so i'm a little lost
01:08:22  <planetmaker> did you try with an unpatched build system?
01:08:38  <planetmaker> e.g. w/o mods to any makefile or so?
01:09:09  <koda> planetmaker: of course, but it fails at crashlog.cpp
01:09:19  <_ln> fails how?
01:09:27  <planetmaker> ^
01:09:42  <koda> missing includes, png.h and ft2build.h
01:10:05  <koda> i just added the proper dir in the
01:10:12  <planetmaker> well, I guess your system is really a bit need of maintenance.
01:10:13  <_ln> hmmm.... hmmmmm. you don't have X11 installed?
01:10:31  <orudge> woo
01:10:32  <planetmaker> did you try sudo port install libpng ?
01:10:35  * orudge should have an OS/2 build again soon :)
01:10:40  <orudge> whether it'll all work or not is nanother matter
01:10:42  <orudge> *another
01:11:51  <koda> lipng is already installed i just don't know how to tell the configure script where it is
01:12:06  <orudge> can you not just download and reinstall libpng? it's not a particularly large library
01:12:19  <glx> configure checks for include and libs usability too

01:13:12  <koda> it detects it, but says it doesn't find it at linking stage
01:13:46  <_ln> orudge: your effort for the OS/2 version is much appreciated although I'm not a regular user anymore, not even on vm.
01:14:18  <orudge> heh, no problem
01:17:44  <_ln> what editor are you using on OS/2, btw?
01:18:36  <orudge> well, so far, I haven't needed to do any major editing. In the past, I've just used e for quick edits, but I can't say I especially like it. Recommendations are appreciated
01:18:40  <orudge> I guess I could probably get vi for OS/2, I'm sure

08:53:52  <sparr> what is the optimal design for a single track handling two way traffic?
08:54:15  <peter1138> whatever doesn't jam
08:54:45  <sparr> I can't come up with anything that handles more than [the number of parallel tracks at the waiting points]+2 trains
08:54:54  <sparr> err, +1
08:55:19  <sparr> can you be more specific on the topic of what doesn't jam?
08:55:38  <peter1138> you need passing places if you want more
08:56:37  <sparr> yes, but wide passing places?
08:57:24  <sparr> with just one extra track at the passing place i cant find a design that works for more than 3 trains
08:58:37  <roboboy> try using pre signals to block/allow trains in between passing lanes
08:58:59  <peter1138> if you're using path signals properly it won't jam until it's absolutely full
09:00:12  *** Terkhen [] has joined #openttd
09:00:21  <roboboy> but if the train needs to get in to a passing lane thats taken wont path signals not help?
09:00:56  <sparr> my problem is when there are trains in both passing lanes, and trains on both sides of the passing lanes on the single track
09:01:12  <sparr> if one of those sides is the end of the line, the system jams
09:01:57  <peter1138> roboboy, if it's taken, how will it get in it?
09:02:10  <roboboy> bah
09:02:28  <roboboy> if its in the previous passing lane
09:02:31  <Brianetta> sparr: If you're using path signals, one of the passing tracks should be the single track
09:02:38  <Brianetta> That is, there should only be two signals
09:02:42  <sparr> peter1138: have an example screenshot, server, or save showing the proper way to use path signals?
09:03:03  <sparr> for this, not in general
09:03:19  <sparr> Brianetta: where?
09:03:35  <Brianetta> sparr: At the places in the passing place where you'd like trains to wait.
09:03:40  <Brianetta> That is, the exits.
09:03:48  <Brianetta> One in each direction, usually.
09:04:24  <sparr> if those are the only signals, then won't the first train that enters the track reserve (or block) the entire thing?
09:04:38  <Brianetta> Here's a general rule for path signals: Put them where you want trains to stop.  If having a train stop at the signal would get int he way, don't put the signal there.
09:05:34  <Brianetta> Which version of openttd are you using?
09:05:39  <sparr> ha
09:05:52  <sparr> 0.7.5, 0.8-svn, 1.0-svn, and various patched versions
09:06:20  * Brianetta compiles 0.7.5
09:06:39  <Brianetta> I'll make you a saved game with many trains on a basic siongle line
09:06:47  <sparr> thanks
09:06:57  <sparr> i've probably got whatever version you already have compiled
09:07:03  <sparr> if you want to use something other than 0.7.5
09:07:08  <Brianetta> 0.7.1 and some non-recent trunk
09:07:22  <sparr> oh, wow :)
09:07:24  <sparr> maybe not then
09:07:26  <peter1138> sparr, if will load in 0.7.5
09:07:38  * Brianetta is in mid-compile
09:07:43  <Brianetta> won't take ling
09:07:45  <Brianetta> long
09:08:39  <sparr> another item on my simple-patches-to-write list...  replace "VERSION MISMATCH" with a message that gives the version the server is using...  i hate having to go to the web to find out
09:09:06  <peter1138>
09:09:33  <Brianetta> That's pretty much it
09:09:39  <peter1138> sparr, it's ... shown in the in-game server list
09:09:54  <sparr> ok, mentally adjusting to drive/signals on the left...
09:10:00  <Brianetta> peter1138: Some of us specify the game info on the cammand line
09:10:15  <peter1138> yes, but then you already know the details of the server...
09:10:23  <Brianetta> unless it got upgraded
09:10:32  <sparr> peter1138: in your picture, there is a train approaching from the top right, which has the track reserved up to the signal, yes?
09:10:40  <peter1138> yes
09:10:55  <peter1138> i have another one of those passing spots
09:11:02  <peter1138> and another station of the same size
09:11:07  <peter1138> max capacity is 7 trains
09:11:18  <sparr> so the passing spot is one way...  i think i get it
09:12:04  <Brianetta> Making it two-way without having somebody to make decisions (a signalman) isn't practical.  All automatic passing places are one way.
09:12:30  <Brianetta> On narrow gauge lines, the points are often spring loaded.
09:15:34  <roboboy> does the dedicated server variant of OpenTTD use significantly less resources?
09:15:47  <sparr> I was trying to signal the "passing track" as two-way
09:15:54  <Brianetta> roboboy: No.
09:16:03  <sparr> instead of having each direction pass on a specific side
09:16:06  <roboboy> ok thanx
09:16:11  <Brianetta> roboboy: It doesn't require an X server, though
09:16:26  <Brianetta> so the machine makes a RAM and CPU saving there
09:16:27  <roboboy> ok
09:16:35  <Brianetta> unless you ruin X anyway
09:16:37  <Brianetta> er
09:16:39  <Brianetta> run X anyway
09:17:18  <Brianetta> sparr: Common practice is to put stations on passing places.  These, two, should have two one-way platforms.

15:29:30  <blathijs> Rubidium: I know, that's why I suggest adding debs for Karmic :-)
15:30:21  <blathijs> Rubidium: Depending on libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio is tricky, since that enforces the use of pulse, while that's not strictly needed.
15:30:43  <blathijs> But I agree that it greatly improves the out-of-the-box experience, though
15:30:51  <Rubidium> blathijs: otherwise you'll get inundated with bug reports about OpenTTD using 100% CPU
15:31:27  <blathijs> Rubidium: We didn't find the cause for that yet?
15:32:32  <Rubidium> blathijs: well some bug in sdl -> alsa -> pulseaudio
15:36:47  <Rubidium> e.g. it's a known bug with solution for tuxpaint too
15:37:11  <blathijs> tuxpaint? Some other SDL app?
15:37:16  <Rubidium> yes
15:37:27  <Rubidium>
15:37:29  <blathijs> And the fix doesn't apply to us?
15:37:48  <Rubidium> blathijs: yes, the fix applies to us too
15:38:10  <Rubidium> and the fix is ...
15:38:21  <Rubidium> ... installing libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio
15:38:32  <Rubidium> i.e. *exactly* the same fix as the fix for us

16:54:25  <andythenorth> *fully supported* with no weird bugs
16:54:28  <Eddi|zuHause> you by "arbitrary tiles" you mean "more industry-plantable tiles than just farm fields"?

16:55:33  <andythenorth>
16:55:38  <andythenorth> it's an old drum I'm banging :D
16:56:01  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: that's fairly easy, with one catch: currently farm fields store the industry id, so that could be used to reference arbitrary industries, but this reference must stay valid when the industry closes
16:56:28  <koda> andythenorth: i believe that a crossplatform game should use crossplatform development tools, so since noone wants to deal with the objc part we could just use sdl for video rendering, io and other stuff
16:56:56  <andythenorth> koda: and there I'm rapidly out of my depth....all I know is:
16:57:07  <andythenorth> (1) giving Rubidium a mac doesn't solve the problem :o
16:57:25  <andythenorth> (2) I would be sad to see the OS X port disappear, but the crossover solution might work
16:57:48  <andythenorth> (3) I can't help with code.   In fact, I haven't even done the mac testing I said I would :(
16:58:00  <andythenorth> (I don't really play the game very often)
16:58:30  <Belugas> koda, not that i want to be rude, but that's bullshit.  there is no such thing.  you NEED to be able to test and debug in the native platform, since all APIs are different in their implementations, and DO reaquire some adjustments, which require vry good knowledge of the underneath stuff
16:59:11  <koda> not true, if you use sdl everything platform specific is wrapped and you just have to deal with 1 api, that is the sdl one
16:59:32  <Eddi|zuHause> koda: you forget that sdl is not ported to 10.6 either
16:59:34  <_ln> koda: SDL is too slow (and possibly otherwise crappy too)
16:59:42  <andythenorth> hmm....I have some house tidying to do....Eddi|zuHause can we discuss industry tiles later? :)
16:59:49  <koda> and that's bullcrap
16:59:54  <koda> i have sdl on 10.6 here

17:00:25  <koda> i can provide screenshots, do you have some proof supporting that sdl is not for 10.6 and it's slow?
17:01:01  <koda> it's true that using platform specific code you get more performance, but you can apply it only for very specific sections and only if you have some native enviroment to build on
17:01:16  <koda> as this is not the case, dropping to a crosscompiler is difficult and dangerous
17:01:38  <_ln> koda: afaik, the Mac port initially used SDL, but it was dropped when better, native implementations were written.
17:01:40  <koda> so the code should use only portable api such as sdl or other libraris
17:02:08  <Eddi|zuHause> koda: i make a vague proposal: you have no real clue what you're talking about.
17:02:23  <Eddi|zuHause> *proposition
17:02:45  <zar> using a portable api is surely wiser if there's nobody to keep the native implementations up-to-date :)

17:03:20  <Eddi|zuHause> zar: but there's nobody who can keep the portable implementations up to date either
17:03:34  <koda> _ln: it appears that the native implementation has been deprecated quickly
17:03:46  <zar> Eddi|zuHause: with for example SDL, that's someone else's problem
17:04:00  <glx> yes Apple deprecates stuff with each new version
17:04:16  <_ln> zar: no, it's "our" problem if it doesn't work well enough for "us".
17:04:30  <koda> one more reason to drop the burden to someone else, like sdl guys
17:04:44  <_ln> glx: and Microsoft never deprecates any stuff, which is not the greatest option either.
17:04:45  <glx> we'll still get the complaints
17:04:50  <zar> _ln: well, if the api isn't horribly broken, it's still less of a burden.

17:07:58  <Belugas> sometimes... people are just... pffffffff
17:08:09  <planetmaker> besides there's not much point in a "you do it wrong" discussion. By whatever means you chose, you'll need a native port maintainer in any case.
17:08:18  * Belugas goes back to listening mode...
17:08:28  <glx> and remember openttd still runs on 10.3.9 :)

17:08:38  <zar> (and time)
17:08:51  <zar> i guess that's the case for many people.
17:08:54  <planetmaker> ^
17:09:27  <koda> :) sorry let me rephrase that, what i meant that if one guy makes a native port and then drops it at any moment, maybe it should have been better to keep the code not-platform specific
17:09:30  <planetmaker> sillls can be aquired, though
17:09:47  <planetmaker> koda: also that statement is pointless.
17:09:56  <koda> why
17:10:12  <planetmaker> _you_ _should_ _have_ _done_
17:10:15  <glx> we use platform specific for all platforms
17:10:20  <planetmaker> in this combination it's a very bad one

17:10:27  <_ln> koda: the safest way would have been not to write the game in the first place.
17:10:53  <glx> anyway the main problem with OSX port was the porter ;)
17:11:02  <zar> shouldn't you be thinking about how to improve the situation.
17:11:11  <zar> instead of fighting like little kids
17:11:27  <_ln> we need to order a clone of Bjarni from some rogue scientist.
17:11:30  <glx> SDL used to crash on exit

17:11:41  <koda> planetmaker: ok my choice of words is poor, but try to get my message
17:11:51  <koda> the osx port should not be abandoned
17:11:56  <planetmaker> zar: absolutely. In my experience it's always ok and welcome, if you supply patches.
17:12:16  <koda> and since noone wants to step up, just try to keep the code compilable with crossplatform apis
17:12:27  <planetmaker> koda: well. It's not abandoned. There's no one of the current devs who can run it natively.
17:12:30  <planetmaker> And that's a problem
17:12:41  <_ln> zar: fighting and finding the persons to blame has been the channel policy since the beginning.
17:12:43  <zar> we have another project running on SDL, and it somewhat works with OS X 10.6 too, so at least it's not completely broken.
17:12:45  *** Eddi|zuHause [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:12:58  <planetmaker> even if you work cross-platform. You need to test whether it works. It's not everything smoothly portable.
17:13:31  <glx> I can only test 10.3.9 in pearpc and 10.4.8 in vmware
17:13:48  <koda> well so you'd need someone who can build it and check it works fine?
17:13:55  <zar> testers are easier to get than developers :)
17:14:10  <planetmaker> how do you want to port system font detection? chinese character input? You need some system calls for that
17:14:23  <Alberth> somebody that fixes the problems when they arise is needed
17:14:51  <Belugas> koda, seeing how hard Rubidium tried to keep it alive, i would say that he did his best to keep it alive.  If HE failed to solve the problems, then he REALLY needs someone WHO KOWS to step in.  He tried.  TI was not just out of bad will.

17:17:04  <planetmaker> and then there's the problem of the compile farm...
17:17:23  <glx> compile farm works :)
17:17:25  <planetmaker> ... a native X-Serve is hard to come by, if you don't want to spend $$$
17:17:36  <Alberth> koda:[OSX]&project=1
17:17:51  <Eddi|zuHause> compile farm is not the problem, testing environment is
17:17:56  <planetmaker> glx: yes. And much appreciated :-)
17:18:17  <glx> it even generates universal builds
17:18:38  <koda> we could add a mac mini server to the farm :D
17:18:44  <koda> less costly than xserves
17:18:48  <glx> no we can't
17:19:41  <planetmaker> even a testing environment doesn't guarantee that things can be reproduced... <-- e.g. I don't see it.
17:19:43  <glx> and as said compilation is not the problem
17:19:49  <Alberth> must be rack-mountable
17:20:54  <Belugas> adding a server for each supported platform is a good idea.  why didn't we though of that before ;)
17:21:16  <Belugas> after all, we do cross plactform, so we must have different plactforms available, right?
17:21:17  <Belugas> hehehe
17:21:18  <planetmaker> hehe
17:21:36  <glx> we use native for all builds except OSX
17:21:57  <glx> because it's quite impossible to set up OSX in a virtual machine
17:22:31  <zar> there seems to be an IME editor in planning for SDL

17:29:07  <glx> oh and the server is AMD IIRC :)
17:35:21  <planetmaker> well... possible in self-made-mode, I guess:

18:43:55  <planetmaker> no, wasn't it.
18:44:04  <planetmaker> sudo port sdllib install
18:44:11  <ashb> also bundle it in the .app and no one but devs have to install it
18:44:13  <planetmaker> the dmg failed horribly
18:44:16  <ashb> eugh. macports is full of fail
18:44:18  <Rubidium> ashb: that would still require a maintainer to see whether the bug is in OpenTTD or in SDL
18:44:54  <ashb> Rubidium: sure, but it also means much less osx specific code

18:47:03  <PeterT> Wat praat jy oor?
18:47:52  <ashb> planetmaker: fwif the way i'd suggest doing it 'properly' is with using sdl as a framework
18:48:19  <planetmaker> yes?
18:48:27  <ashb> as in a .framework
18:48:35  <ashb> as those are easier to embed in an app
18:48:50  <Terkhen> the croatian translator has an interesting nick

19:06:15  <planetmaker> should I attach the screenshot to FS#3194 or make a separate issue?

19:06:49  <Rubidium> make it a separate one

19:07:13  <Rubidium> then I can easily link that when they 'again' propose to go to SDL
19:07:23  <planetmaker> ok
19:07:43  <planetmaker> colour is not the only one. The window resize box also leaves smears / glitches
19:08:18  <Rubidium> so SDL isn't that unified across platforms as it's supposed to be... OR ... it's just plain old buggy on OSX
19:09:25  <planetmaker> hm... it looks similar to the resizing issue I once reported on my linux box. Not the same, but the smear is also limited to a certain x-extend of the window

20:09:44  <luk3Z> wrong command &  quit accidently ;)
20:10:33  <darkmonkey> i haven't had chance to trawl through the bug tracker but - my trains occasionally stop at stations and refuse to move after that - despite having no 'wait for full load' or signals stopping them
20:10:43  <darkmonkey> is that a bug or just..gameplay?
20:11:09  <planetmaker> do they still load?
20:11:23  <planetmaker> e.g. is cargo slowly tickling into the station?
20:11:58  <darkmonkey> no, no cargo
20:12:08  <darkmonkey> on a station which had oil and then the oil wells disappeared
20:12:25  <darkmonkey> disappeared when the train was en-route
20:12:55  <darkmonkey> i could understand if it was waiting for a load but i specifically told it to go somewhere else and ignore the signals
20:14:08  <Alberth> you have a save game?
20:14:28  <Alberth> you may want to post it at the general openttd forum

20:22:55  <Alberth> darkmonkey: there are also autosaves
20:23:55  <darkmonkey> i had never saved the game (fresh install) so where would it have put them?
20:23:56  <Alberth> in save/autosave at my system. Maybe you have an old version
20:24:07  <darkmonkey> i have latest 1.0.0 beta
20:24:42  <Alberth> depends on your config.  simplest way is to start a game, and save :)

20:40:47  <Alberth> for new users it is not so good imho. Problem is there are not many newbie users that write wiki
20:41:17  <darkmonkey> true - but for instance the timetabling tutorial is very clear

21:54:07  <sparr> i'll take OSX over windows, for usage AND development, any day
21:55:15  <Rubidium> good luck with maintaining the OS X port then :)
21:55:45  <Rubidium> I'll rather support Windows with it's interesting differences than OS X
21:58:42  <koda> i wouldn't call them "interesting" but i guess it's a development choice
22:00:04  <Rubidium> koda: the difference between Korean, Chinese and 'the rest' w.r.t. handling font names/paths is interesting :)
22:00:58  <Rubidium> making OpenTTD not compile anymore *each* and *every* major release of Apple stops to be interesting quite fast
22:04:09  <Rubidium> and it's quite nice that with a small amount of effort you can support a 15 year old OS, whereas you simply cannot support Mac OS X 10.3.8, which is less than 5 years old

22:05:24  <koda> security concerns apart, that statement might be true for some windows user who is still under win98 but 99,9% of macos users are on 10.4 onwards

22:09:56  * Belugas goes home. He had enough stupidity for a day
22:09:59  <Belugas> bye all

22:10:18  <koda> miss*
22:10:20  <Terkhen> good bye Belugas
22:12:00  <Rubidium> there are probably less people with Mac OS X Snow Leopard downloading OpenTTD than people with Win9x downloading OpenTTD
22:12:34  <Rubidium> and panther seems to be used by ~1.3%
22:13:02  <koda> ... well go on with that attitude towards mac users and you'll see an even lower percentage :)
22:13:10  <PeterT> Rubidium: Where are you getting these stats from?
22:15:35  * Belugas realized he forgot his headphones while out of the building. koda, the "stupidity" stuff was not sent toward you, if ever you felt like it...

22:25:24  *** welshdragon [] has quit [Quit: welshdragon]
22:28:32  <Rubidium> koda: the problem I have with Mac users, at least the ones that voice their anger w.r.t. our decision to not officially support the port anymore, is that they assume that Mac OS X support is easy and way less work than platform X yet for OpenTTD it seems to be completely the opposite world
22:29:23  <Rubidium> and their solution usually is: oh, just give an existing developer a Mac and the problems solves itself magically
22:30:08  *** HerzogDeXtEr [~Administr@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:30:09  <Rubidium> but it requires the developer getting the Mac to be interesting in going through the hassle of learning the Mac API and figuring out what can be used and in what way
22:30:34  <Rubidium> and that's what takes a ginormous amount of time
22:31:12  <_ln> but it's free software, it should magically fix itself
22:31:28  <Rubidium> time I myself rather invest in other things, but then 'my' attitude becomes hostile towards the Mac users because I do not fix the port their are interested in
22:32:38  <Rubidium> but in the same way you can 'map' that attitude to all Mac users because they can't be bothered to fix the bugs
22:33:16  <_ln> some of them can't, because it would result in a kick
22:33:24  <Rubidium> and don't come with the argument that Mac users can't code, because it's just something that can be learnt as long as you are willing to put the effort into it
22:35:46  <koda> your point is sensible

22:42:31  <Rubidium> koda: hmm, then I'm unbelievable too
22:43:16  <Rubidium> but okay, that's my personal opinion on finding a method to determine what font would be best for a given language
22:44:15  <koda> you can say that you don't like objc, but stating that msdn has a nice documentation is like saying windows me is a powerful and secure operating system
22:44:18  *** HackaBit [~Hans@] has joined #openttd
22:44:38  <glx> I have no problems with objc
22:45:07  <glx> it's just a language

22:45:48  <koda> and i think that we just had a bad start
22:45:55  <glx> I just say finding the function I need is easier in MSDN than in OSX doc
22:46:55  <koda> yeah option double click on the function to open it in the documentation is much slower than copying the function, open the browser and paste it msdn search engine...
22:47:20  <koda> but that's personal taste
22:47:46  <sparr> glx: finding the function, yes.  finding accurate documentation of what it does or how it works?  no chance in hell.
22:48:01  <sparr> if HALF of the information in MSDN is accurate (and not just "usually right") i would be amazed

23:04:35  <sparr> why would high station spread make the game run slower (as it warns in the gui)?
23:05:02  <sparr> Rubidium: five years from now when i have to support your code, I would rather you have spent twice as long finding the right information than have used dodgy information at all.
23:05:22  *** Rubix`` [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:05:40  <Rubidium> because houses/industries need to search further to find out there is no station that will take their cargo
23:05:45  <sparr> thorough-but-wrong documentation from MS regarding MS technologies are the reason for the majority of software issues in the world today
23:06:07  <sparr> why do they need to search further?  station spread affects placement, not reach
23:06:35  <sparr> that is, no matter what you set station spread to, no station tile reaches houses more than [intercontinental airport range] away
23:06:39  <glx> the warning has been removed IIRC
23:06:58  <Rubidium> because with a 64 station spread the closest tile might be ~30 tiles away, which it still falls within the reach of the station
23:07:06  <sparr> no?
23:07:27  <Rubidium> with a 8 tile spread it's at most 3 tiles
23:07:31  <sparr> you are mixing up station coverage with station spread
23:07:37  <glx> hmm it's still there indeed, but when it was added station spread was not cached
23:08:08  <glx> sparr: they are related
23:08:09  <sparr> a house has to search 12 tiles away because that's the range of an intercontinental airport, regardless of what station spread is set to
23:08:20  <sparr> (i think its 12)
23:09:12  <sparr> if the nearest station to a house is 13 tiles away, it will not be supplied or taken from, regardless of what station spread is set to
23:09:23  <glx> take a station consisting of 2 bus stops at opposite corners of the max spread
23:09:29  <sparr> ok
23:10:00  <glx> coverage includes all tiles in between
23:10:04  <sparr> err, no?
23:10:21  <sparr> not as indicated in the documentation, the wiki, or on the coverage gui
23:10:35  <sparr> coverage includes all tiles within 4 tiles of either of the two bus stops
23:10:57  <glx> coverage is a square containing coverage of all parts of the station
23:11:15  <sparr> i believe that to be incorrect, and am going to check.  brb
23:12:27  <sparr> i find that you are correct...  and that every source of information on the subject is wrong
23:13:02  <sparr> that is an amazingly useful piece of information that no person i have discussed station walk with has ever possessed
23:13:48  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: yexo * r18660 /trunk/src/order_cmd.cpp: -Cleanup: remove useless function
23:14:25  <sparr> so with spread 12, two bus stops of nominal 9x9 coverage can cover every tile in a 20x20 swuare
23:15:58  <Yexo> that's only for delivery of cargo, the houses in between the stops don't supply cargo to the station
23:16:21  <Yexo> and I'm sure it's mentioned in several forum topics
23:16:23  <sparr> Yexo: that is both confusing and enlightening
23:16:35  <sparr> "mentioned in several forum topics" != documented
23:16:36  <Yexo> but there is indeed a lot of wrong information about the topic
23:16:41  <Yexo> true :)
23:17:52  *** Brianetta [] has quit [Quit: Tsch?ss]
23:18:34  <sparr> so coverage for 'accepts' is the whole square, while coverage for 'produces' is just the coverage of the individual station tiles
23:18:48  <Yexo> that'
23:18:51  <Yexo> that's correct
23:18:59  <sparr> that seems like silly design, why?
23:19:27  *** welshdragon [] has joined #openttd
23:19:31  <Yexo> probably speed
23:19:38  *** HackaLittleBit [~Hans@] has joined #openttd
23:19:47  <sparr> err, i would *expect* both ways to use the faster method
23:19:51  <Yexo> for 'accepts' you search from the station, so it's faster to search the whole square then to check each tile
23:19:51  <glx> and source of cargo
23:19:55  <sparr> why do the whole-box search at all?
23:20:10  <Yexo> for 'produces' you search from the house/industry, so it's faster to check if a single station tile is in range
23:20:52  <sparr> that is very counter-intuitive
23:21:02  <glx> because it's easier to store a big box than an union of small boxes
23:21:33  <_ln> planetmaker: why does your SDL bug report block the "hopelessly outdated" bug?
23:21:34  <sparr> meh
23:21:45  <sparr> good to know, but doesn't much alter my gameplay style
23:21:57  <sparr> although I will be sure to exploit it in a coop game at some point just to confuse people :)
23:22:22  <sparr> "how the hell does he have coverage at that industry in the middle of the lake??"
23:24:24  <Yexo> extra fun when playing with invisible station tiles :p

23:27:56  <_ln> the "hopelessly outdated" bug depends on only three other open bugs that are real bugs.
23:28:43  <_ln> three bugs = hopelessly outdated? ... or is there something essential missing?
23:28:55  <Yexo> the hopelessly outdated bug just depends on all osx specific bugs currently
23:29:29  <_ln> so i've been told, but if the count is really down to three, is it hopelessly outdated anymore?
23:29:56  <Yexo> FS#3447- sdl port unusable, FS#3194-full screen glitch
23:30:00  <Yexo> both seem pretty major problems
23:30:52  <_ln> Yexo: FS#3447 is completely un-major and irrelevant, as the OSX port doesn't use SDL at all by default.
23:31:26  <Yexo> ok, still leaves the other one
23:31:32  <Yexo> and FS#2585 can be annoying
23:32:25  <_ln> agreed, the full screen glitch is a real bug, as well as 2585.
23:33:34  *** andythenorth [~andy@] has joined #openttd
23:34:32  <_ln> which reminds me... i think the fullscreen and windowed mode use completely different implementations for drawing.
23:35:34  <_ln> the one for windowed being more elegant, and it could be used for fullscreen too.  but was not chosen for fullscreen use due to performance reasons.

23:37:15  <_ln> the side effect of the current fullscreen code is that OTTD gets complete control of the keyboard and mouse, and there's no way to exit the game if it e.g. halted for some reason.
23:37:40  <_ln> with the alternative way one could apple-tab easily out of the fullscreen application.

23:47:07  <HackaBit> Or is there somebody willing to talk about it?
23:47:50  <Rubidium> well, seems you are willing to talk about it
23:48:00  <HackaBit> thanks
23:48:12  <HackaBit> it  is this line:assert(v->track == TRACK_BIT_WORMHOLE || TileVirtXY(v->x_pos, v->y_pos) == v->tile);

23:48:46  <Rubidium> that seems fine to me
23:49:03  <HackaBit> when train enters tunnel v->tille is not yet assigned
23:49:32  <HackaBit> only some fraction coordinates later
23:50:01  <HackaBit> question why does assert not trigger
23:51:15  <andythenorth> time for thing: it's been emotional ;)
23:51:18  <andythenorth> good night
23:51:25  *** andythenorth [~andy@] has left #openttd []
23:52:23  <Rubidium> HackaBit: probably because v->tile gets assigned in the caller of that function
23:53:29  <Rubidium> i.e. TrainController
23:56:21  <HackaBit> as far as I can see it is only assigned in _tunnel_fractcoord_2[dir]

23:58:58  <HackaBit> I was testing rubidiium and only on very rare ocasions it triggers not reproducable for me
