12:00:35  <OsteHovel> now i got a pack of 32bpp sprites... are they suposed to be in /data/sprites/ (and folders for each grf it replaces) ?
12:01:04  <Ammler> just in data
12:01:13  <OsteHovel> ok ;)
12:01:34  <Ammler> (the tars should have folder sprites/<grf> in it
12:02:20  <OsteHovel> aaah
12:02:22  <OsteHovel> omg
12:02:28  <OsteHovel> im not suposed to extract them,...
12:02:31  * OsteHovel suchs a idiot
12:04:49  <Ammler> yes, no need, but you can
12:06:39  <OsteHovel> i dont get it to work so it must be something im doing wrong...
12:06:44  <OsteHovel> gonna try with a siple small tar
12:07:14  <Ammler> you need to enable the blitter, thee is a wiki page about...
12:07:25  <Ammler> also a lot tt-forums threads
12:07:31  <OsteHovel> this one right: blitter = 32bpp-optimized
12:07:38  <OsteHovel> in the [misc] part of the openttd.cfg
12:09:06  <OsteHovel> im trying to get this siple file working:
12:10:05  <Ammler> that is outdated
12:10:19  <Ammler> using openttdw.grf
12:10:31  <OsteHovel> yaya but see the bright spot it worked ;)
12:10:35  <Ammler> you might need a openttd version from that time
12:10:46  <OsteHovel> everything exept that one spirte got replaced
12:10:50  <OsteHovel> the rest of the toolbar got replaced )
12:12:53  <Ammler> because that is from trg1r.grf, which doesn't change...

12:55:07  <andythenorth> any chance of FS #3822 ?
12:55:07  <andythenorth>
12:55:14  <andythenorth> I'll bake cookies if so
12:55:29  * PeterT bakes andythenorth
12:55:43  <andythenorth> (cookies will look and taste somewhat like code for industry clustering)
12:56:02  <PeterT> you haven't learned that asking will only delay you?
12:56:13  <PeterT> they will get to it eventually ;-)
12:57:17  <Alberth> Its author seems to be busy with other things atm
12:57:39  <andythenorth> PeterT: asking rarely does delay it
12:58:04  <andythenorth> quite often asking nicely seems to work
12:59:26  <andythenorth> the patch is tested and works (in single player, haven't tried MP)

13:02:42  * andythenorth could add those?
13:02:49  <frosch123> already did
13:02:53  <andythenorth> :)
13:08:42  * andythenorth prepares cookie mix
13:08:46  <andythenorth> but later!

13:09:32  <Rubidium> aren't those cookies stale on the 19th?
13:10:38  <frosch123> the time it takes to prepare them depends on the amount. i.e. he would first have to order some kg of chocolate and such
13:10:42  <planetmaker> there'll be new ones
13:10:56  <planetmaker> meat cookies :-P

16:14:06  <DJNekkid> hi guys. Anyone who is driving windows Vista or earlier who can send me mspaint.exe ?
16:14:45  <SmatZ> win7 dropped mspaint?
16:14:58  <SmatZ> I can send you czech version, if you don't mind...
16:15:12  <Forked> I have mspaint.exe in win7
16:15:34  <DJNekkid> win7 have mspaint, but its "broken" compared to is predesessor
16:15:43  <DJNekkid> and a czech version is ok :)
16:16:11  <DJNekkid> but forked is sending me a russian version :)
16:16:14  <DJNekkid> (i think)
16:16:25  <Forked> let me find it..
16:16:30  <PeterT> would you prefer an english version?
16:16:51  <DJNekkid> any old mspaint.exe would hopefully work :)
16:16:59  <PeterT> I didn't find it very broken :-P
16:17:01  <DJNekkid> the text isnt important :)
16:17:06  <fjb> Chinese version would look funnier.
16:17:16  <PeterT> well, being able to read it helps :-)
16:17:28  *** devilsadvocate [~devilsadv@] has joined #openttd
16:18:46  <DJNekkid> thanx SmatZ
16:18:55  <DJNekkid> i'll get back to you PeterT if i need an english one
16:19:03  <SmatZ> :)
16:19:18  <PeterT> sure
16:21:17  <DJNekkid> there is ONE function i cant seem to find in the win7 version
16:21:27  <Forked> what function is that?
16:21:33  <DJNekkid> the ability to copy only non-background colors/pixels
16:21:41  <DJNekkid> and paste that on top of an exsisting sprite

19:18:48  <Eddi|zuHause> is that worth it?

19:20:19  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: well, germany got last place twice in the last 5 years, or so :p
19:20:24  <glx> no result since 1977 here
19:20:52  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: I think we got last 3 times last 5 :p
19:21:47  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: well, austria didn't take part in the last 5 years, which always was a safe 12 points
19:22:09  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: Heh. Didn't take part or didn't pass the semifinals?
19:22:17  <Eddi|zuHause> i think didn't take part
19:23:12  <Eddi|zuHause> other fairly safe 12 points usually come from spain (= mallorca) :p
19:23:28  <glx> the german island ;)
19:23:51  <OwenS> Hehe

19:24:37  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: Can't have. For a few years we got zero...
19:24:53  <OwenS> Thats right. Even Ireland didn't vote for us
19:25:24  <Eddi|zuHause> the german 12 points often go to turkey
19:25:50  <Eddi|zuHause> except the one time where denmark won

19:27:15  <glx> +d

19:32:01  <OwenS> Why did I read France as Germany? Brain needs a slap

19:38:54  <Eddi|zuHause> because countries like luxembourg didn't want to host twice in a row?
19:39:35  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: Netherlands, France, Monaco, and Luxembourg. Netherlands have also hosted once on behalf of Israel since it coincided with their rememberance day

20:45:40  <Eddi|zuHause> there are a few interesting songs in there...

21:28:18  <Eddi|zuHause> only 10 points for turkey...

21:33:13  <Eddi|zuHause> "et lÀppert sich"
21:34:38  <OwenS> Germany in the lead? :o
21:35:03  <Eddi|zuHause> never 12 points, but often 6-8
21:35:31  <OwenS> Spoke too soon there :p
21:35:38  <Eddi|zuHause> obviously ;)
21:35:42  <Eddi|zuHause> i jinxed it! :p
21:36:07  <OwenS> In your favor? :p

21:37:13  <OwenS> You'd only get a couple of pennies anyway :p

21:42:37  <OwenS> rofl
21:42:59  <OwenS> Our commentator just complemented the beautiful volcanic ash sunset :p
21:42:59  <Eddi|zuHause> said the german commentator ;)
21:43:21  <OwenS> Also, when we got two points "Look at us! We are racing ahead! 3 more and were in double figures!" :p
21:44:25  <Eddi|zuHause> haha :p
21:44:32  <OwenS> "Again with the Eiffel Tower! Build something else famous! Come on!" :p
21:46:18  <Eddi|zuHause> i'd be very surprised if germany not got 12 points from spain...
21:46:25  <OwenS> You did :p
21:46:39  <OwenS> BBC's stream must be a bit ahead of yours
21:46:43  <Eddi|zuHause> as far as i remember, we never not got 12 points from spain
21:47:28  <OwenS> I've got to say Oslo's interval stuff has been surprisingly unsucky
21:48:08  <TrueBrain> @openttd commit 509
21:48:11  <DorpsGek> TrueBrain: Commit by truelight :: r509 /branches/network (15 files) (2004-11-05 15:24:43 UTC)
21:48:12  <DorpsGek> TrueBrain: -Add: [New Network] Ingame visible text-message (chat and stuff)
21:48:13  <DorpsGek> TrueBrain: -Add: Made possible to draw strings in player-color
21:48:14  <DorpsGek> TrueBrain: -Fix: [New Network] Possible security issue in players.c
21:48:27  <TrueBrain> why on earth do you want to know
21:48:37  <OwenS> Strangely Trac refuses to pull the diff
21:48:46  <TrueBrain> have the same issue, yes
21:49:01  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: most important note is that the commit is in a branch, and never was in any kind of release
21:49:18  <frosch123> OwenS: it is in branch 'network', not trunk
21:49:26  <TrueBrain> frosch123:
21:49:54  <Rubidium> I think I made a small mistake when the svn got reimported with branch renamed to branches
21:50:06  <TrueBrain> ah, yes
21:50:09  <TrueBrain> some meta data most likely
21:50:13  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: but why do you want to know?
21:50:43  <Rubidium> because I rather lose the _current_company = OWNER_NONE in CmdCompanyCtrl
21:50:54  <TrueBrain> something silly could happen under certain conditions
21:52:41  <TrueBrain> I believe it was an issue when holding down the shift
21:52:59  <TrueBrain> no, that was sooner
21:53:10  <TrueBrain> (holding shift caused all network-client commands to be queries :p)

21:56:33  <TrueBrain> btw, Rubidium, did you spot the null-reference in r509 players.c? :)
21:56:51  <Rubidium> no, haven't looked at it thoroughly
21:57:05  <TrueBrain> if pDoStartupNewPlayer is NULL, it makes a null reference :p
21:57:07  <Rubidium> only looked at the diff
21:57:09  <TrueBrain> but I asusme that is fixed :p
21:57:26  <Rubidium> yes, it is
21:58:07  <TrueBrain> you are streching my memory here :p
21:59:20  <Rubidium> I know
21:59:38  <Rubidium> but a bit of brain training is good
21:59:56  <Rubidium> hmm, CmdCompanyCtrl is significantly smaller in r509
22:00:03  <TrueBrain> well, I know myself, so I can tell by the commit log that is was a hypotetical situation
22:01:36  <Rubidium> looks like you could join as spectator and be "joined"/"put" into the first newly created company
22:02:03  <TrueBrain> it did anyway

22:09:52  <OwenS> An hour a bit OTT? :p
22:10:08  <TrueBrain> hmm .. should have been 1 minute
22:10:16  * PeterT disables auto-return, for the love of God
22:10:19  <TrueBrain> guess I forgot the input was in minutes :p
22:10:33  <OwenS> Wait... You banned him for 60 hours? XD
22:10:43  <TrueBrain> no
22:10:43  <PeterT> 3600 seconds?
22:10:47  <PeterT> that's not 60 hours
22:10:48  <TrueBrain> input was minutes, and I thought it was seconds
22:10:53  <TrueBrain> so I typed 60, which clearly is an hour
22:10:59  <TrueBrain> back off topic
22:11:03  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: remove it and see what happens?
22:11:06  <OwenS> PeterT: He said "minutes", I thought kban took minutes :p
22:11:21  *** mode/#openttd [-b *!] by TrueBrain
22:13:11  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: as far as I can trace my memory (go figure), it had to do that some commands were executed as player instead of in the non-world, and that this could potentially avoid that problem
22:13:19  <TrueBrain> just, if it worked at all, it is a very unclean solution
22:15:46  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: to conclude, no sub-function should care if the _current_player is NONE or not .. and if the current code has the same assumption .. well :)

22:17:03  *** Eoin [] has joined #openttd
22:17:08  <Eoin> i never even noticed i was banned lol
22:17:21  <TrueBrain> the ban was just to avoid your auto-return thingy
22:17:30  <TrueBrain> which defeats the idea of a kick
22:17:52  <PeterT> so the idea of a kick is to make the person work by writing "/join #channel" to get back in?
22:17:56  <OwenS> TrueBrain: Depends. Some channels I've been kicked from in jest :p
22:18:11  <TrueBrain> PeterT: no, to make them aware they were kicked; some clients otherwise do not even report the kick
22:18:13  <Eoin> i have auto return on?
22:18:16  <Eoin> never knew
22:18:28  <ccfreak2k> Eoin, it's default on in some clients.
22:18:34  <OwenS> TrueBrain: They'd see the @kick line
22:18:36  <TrueBrain> one of those 'features' in clients which makes  another
22:18:40  <TrueBrain> 'feature' obsolete
22:18:45  <PeterT> TrueBrain: I see. I've disabled my kick_rejoin
22:18:50  <TrueBrain> OwenS: they go on the mental ignore :p

22:22:04  <OwenS> PeterT: Sure. But I'm refering to #openttd specifically
22:22:52  <TrueBrain> OwenS: did you know that 'ban after auto-return after kick' is part of the IRC etiquette nowedays? :)
22:23:57  <TrueBrain> then again, it also says not to kick users if they beg for it
22:24:44  <OwenS> TrueBrain: I suppose I'll have to adopt my official solution: Only ever get kicked in jest :p

23:14:24  <Katje_> the bits normally controlled in "Advanced settings" and "difficulty (custom)"
23:14:28  <Katje_> in single player
23:14:36  <PeterT> Are you starting a server?

23:20:30  <__ln__> it's not the best song ever, but i thought it was quite nice
23:20:39  <Katje_> where would I find the openttd.cfg ?
23:20:39  <Zuu> I though it was normal that one is not liking the winning song.
23:20:47  <PeterT> Katje_: readme.txt
23:20:52  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: in the readme.txt
23:21:03  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: and only after you ran openttd once and exit properly
23:21:14  <Zuu> Katje_: Or use the find file tools of your operating system. But reading the readme.txt is a good thing anyways.
23:21:21  <Katje_> hmm, thats not easy to find either, I wonder where debian hides it
23:21:28  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: or just put your single player cfg on the appropriate place
23:21:34  <Katje_> Zuu: well the wiki sugguests it should be in ~/.openttd/
23:21:40  <Katje_> I can find all my save games
23:21:42  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: in /usr/share/games?
23:21:43  <Katje_> but nothing else
23:21:55  * __ln__ received a flag of the federal republic of germany as a gift
23:21:56  <Zuu> We said the readme, not the wiki
23:22:15  <Katje_> aah, theres an openttd.cfg in there
23:22:24  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: well, savegames and config should be at the same place
23:22:32  <Rubidium> docs in debian go to /usr/share/doc/<package> ; so in this case /usr/share/doc/openttd
23:22:58  <OwenS> Note to self: If your mailing list comment disappears, check you aren't subscribed with an old address
23:23:13  <Zuu> Katje_: What does "locate openttd.cfg" tell you?
23:23:26  <Katje_> I found one in /usr/share/games/openttd
23:23:31  <SmatZ> bash: locate: command not found
23:23:32  <Rubidium> Zuu: that doesn't work until the next updatedb is ran
23:23:32  <Zuu> Shouldn't that give you rather quickly the file you want.
23:23:35  <Katje_> have copied it to ~/.openttd/
23:23:41  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: that shouldn't be the right place...
23:23:52  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: as stuff in /usr shouldn't be writable
23:24:00  <Katje_> hence copying it
23:24:15  <Katje_> this may explain why my settings never stay constant between games
23:24:40  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: i'd also advise removing
23:25:02  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: and telling your package maintainer to fix it...
23:25:24  <Rubidium> openttd.cfg in /usr/share/games/openttd? That's quite unlikely to happen
23:25:39  <Katje_> Rubidium: thats where its hiding...
23:25:56  <Rubidium> well, unless OpenTTD can't find a $HOME
23:26:06  <Zuu> That would mean that it was put there by the installer/packagemanager?
23:26:13  <Katje_> I have copied it to ~/.openttd/
23:26:24  <Katje_> Zuu: yeah,
23:26:45  <Rubidium> Zuu: it isn't for me; I've got the Debian package installed, so it isn't the Debian package that's the problem
23:26:59  <Katje_> Rubidium: which version are you using from debian ?
23:27:04  <Rubidium> 1.0.1
23:27:48  <OwenS> <-- Really, Intel/USB Forum, really?
23:27:59  <Rubidium> though 0.6.2-lenny doesn't have an openttd.cfg either
23:28:32  <Rubidium> OwenS: why not? "Sehr Schnell"
23:28:43  <Zuu> Isn't there a deb tool that can tell you which package a file comes from?
23:28:53  <OwenS> Rubidium: Indeed. Invoking Godwin's law in a standard logo...
23:28:55  <Rubidium> there is, just don't know how it's called
23:28:58  <Zuu> Which would also tell if the file was not put there by the package manager.
23:29:20  <Zuu> I don't remember either.
23:29:44  <Terkhen> good night
23:31:07  <Rubidium> OwenS: where has that law been invoked?
23:31:41  <OwenS> Rubidium: "SS"?
23:31:44  <Rubidium> because if that's the case... don't talk about the Norwegian railway company either
23:31:53  <OwenS> At least they resisted the temtation to have it lightning style :p
23:32:47  <Rubidium> poor Swati people...
23:33:02  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: in germany it is forbidden to mimic nazi symbols
23:33:38  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: I'm aware of that. Stupid law IMO, but I understand why
23:34:26  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: well, apparently "freedom of speech" is a lesser good in germany than e.g in america
23:34:59  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: At least you have a constitution ;-). Ours is all unwritten, and in theory the House of Commons could change it on a whim without oversight
23:35:11  <OwenS> (OK, I suppose the Queen could refuse to sign it)
23:36:02  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: technically, we have a constitution that is not "active", but not really invalidated either. and another constitution that isn't a constitution and says it should be turned into a real constitution
23:36:04  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: then why does use swastika's?
23:36:12  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: rofl
23:36:30  <OwenS> (The House of Lords is supposed to oversee them... But in the 20s the Commons passed a bill that allows them to go around the lords. How did they do this? They threattened to get the then King to stuff the Lords with people to get the vote passed anyway)
23:36:49  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: At least yours doesn't involve trawling 400 year old court cases
23:37:28  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: some of our laws date back to pre-napoleonic times
23:38:05  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: I think some of ours date back to the 12th century. We certainly have some laws written in french
23:38:11  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: and with the history of throwing everything around, it gets pretty messy
23:38:58  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: there have been extensive court discussions on which parts of which constitution actually apply ;)
23:39:29  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: Well, at least you have some form of real constitution. Not one the government can just decide "We're gonna rewrite this bit today"
23:39:33  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: and the outcome certainly contained the words "parts of the 1918 constitution still apply"
23:40:42  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: well, we have that kind of government, too, but at least it is defined that it needs a 2/3 majority in the parliament
23:41:11  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: Majority only here. And you know what our parliments are like...
23:42:01  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: well, the last time your king ruled without parliament is a little further away than our last dictatorship
23:42:13  <OwenS> True
23:42:38  <Eddi|zuHause> several parts in our semi-constitution have been written especially with the events of 1933 in mind
23:42:51  <OwenS> And at least the Queen can refuse to sign a law here if the need arises
23:43:08  <Eddi|zuHause> well, our president has the same right
23:43:26  <Katje_> am I right in thinking when generating a map, if I remember the seed, I will always get the same map ?
23:43:29  <Eddi|zuHause> that actually did happen a few years ago
23:43:37  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: yes and no
23:43:42  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: Is your president elected?
23:44:02  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: things may change depending on loaded newgrfs and other settings
23:44:15  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: yes, but not directly
23:44:19  *** pugi [] has quit [Quit: ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US!]
23:44:36  <Katje_> but if all other settings remain the same
23:44:42  <Katje_> the map will be the same each time?
23:44:45  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: I think its kind of good that our checks and balances (Lords, Queen) aren't affiliated with a political party
23:45:00  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: it's some weirdly convoluted scheme between the "Bundesrat" [representation of individual governments] and the "Bundestag" [parliament]
23:45:05  <OwenS> Hehe
23:45:19  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: yes
23:45:48  <Eddi|zuHause> Katje_: PS: game version is also relevant
23:46:12  <Katje_> ok
23:46:32  <b_jonas> a parliment building for cities?
23:47:10  <Eddi|zuHause> b_jonas: possible via newgrf
23:47:36  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: I also like that your constitution only allows declaration of war for defensive purposes
23:47:38  <Eddi|zuHause> b_jonas: pikka once introduced the concept of "town halls", but i think he scratched that again
23:47:42  <__ln__> is there something that's not possible via newgrf?
23:47:52  <OwenS> __ln__: 3D
23:48:07  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: they recently had a very wide definition of "defensive", e.g. in kosovo and afghanistan
23:48:53  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: resulting in the coined phrase "germany's borders get defended at the hindukush"
23:48:53  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: Don't they fall under the definition of peace keeping?
23:49:09  <OwenS> Certainly Kossovo was under UNMIK
23:49:19  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: no, theoretically it requires a direct threat against german territory
23:49:51  <OwenS> Eddi|zuHause: Hmm. Perhaps its too tightly defined in my eyes then.
23:49:57  <OwenS> Theres certainly a balance required, as in all things
23:50:26  <Eddi|zuHause> OwenS: the allies wrote that part into our constitution...
23:50:45  <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: over here the problem is solved by calling those things "crisis", not "war".
23:51:05  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: yes, they tried that here, too. but they didn't manage to keep that up
23:51:35  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: in the recent months, they were pressured into calling it a "war" in afghanistan
23:52:20  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: especially in the aftermath of the bombing of two fuel trucks with hundreds of dead civilians
23:52:48  <Eddi|zuHause> which was kind of a turning point in german involvement in afghanistan
23:53:17  <Eddi|zuHause> that was around a year ago, i think, and cost the "head" of the previous defense minister
23:53:39  <OwenS> The interesting thing is that at this point Afghanistan truely is a peace keeping mission
23:53:43  <Zuu> Katje_: Not sure if the town names will be the same each time though. When I use the 'restart' command, the town names change even if the map is the same as before.
23:54:09  <Eddi|zuHause> Zuu: that might be a bug
23:54:15  <OwenS> Or perhaps "Peace making" or "nation building"
23:54:22  <glx> Zuu: it should be the same unless number of town changed
23:54:49  <b_jonas> how does that work together with NATO?
23:55:24  <Eddi|zuHause> b_jonas: it caused problems e.g. in bosnia, and iraq
23:55:34  <Katje_> ok
23:55:37  <Katje_> thank you
23:56:55  <Eddi|zuHause> of course being against iraq war was one great way to get reelected back then :p
23:59:03  <Eddi|zuHause> nothing better suited to get reelected than inscenating a natural catastrophe and an instrumentalising an unwanted war ;)
