00:02:04  <Eddi|zuHause> is it intended that there's neither makefile in media/extra_grf nor a target in the standard makefile? or am i just overlooking stuff?

00:04:40  <noom> hello again fellow transporters
00:04:51  <noom> i have yet more nooby questions - if anyones about :)
00:08:28  <davis> don't ask to ask , just ask
00:08:37  <noom> hahahahahaha
00:08:42  <davis> anyone will possibly answer your questions at some point
00:08:48  <noom> you dont happen to moderate a certain mmo called wurm do you ? :p
00:08:57  <noom> i've had that exact response in their IRC :p
00:09:10  <davis> I don't , it's a common thing to say though.
00:09:24  <noom> maybe just 'cus i always start a convo like that
00:09:26  <noom> haha
00:09:27  <davis> meta questions are hardly welcome
00:09:47  <noom> *sniff*
00:09:55  <noom> alright well my first problem is oil
00:09:55  <davis> haha
00:10:04  <davis> oh yeah , it's getting expensive.
00:10:13  <noom> (in oTTD)
00:10:17  <davis> =)
00:10:25  <davis> so what's the problem
00:10:32  <noom> i used a boat to move oil to a train station, then used trains to haul it accross the entire map
00:10:37  <noom> because all my refinery's had closed
00:10:42  <noom> and well, just 'cus i wanted to
00:10:50  <davis> sure
00:10:52  <noom> anyway, they pay me bloody 6k for the haul
00:11:02  <noom> i thought distance made it more valuable?
00:11:11  <noom> this is boat / train and at least 400 tiles
00:11:30  <davis> not excactly sure about the formula
00:11:42  <davis> but the profit is usualy about time the transport takes
00:11:44  <davis> and the distance
00:11:52  <davis> and ships usualy arn't quite fast.
00:12:03  <noom> well only a small portion of the trip was the ship
00:12:06  <noom> just rig to port
00:12:13  <noom> but he was behaving very strangely
00:12:28  <noom> if there were no trains waiting for him, he would empty out into the station, but then fill back up and bugger off with it
00:12:36  <noom> like he wouldnt wait at the port for a train
00:12:43  <davis> set orders to transfer and no loading
00:12:50  <davis> or transfer and leave empty
00:12:53  <davis> something like that
00:13:24  <noom> hangon lemme open up TTD
00:13:48  <noom> i tried every combo i think
00:13:52  <noom> he also wasnt getting paid
00:13:54  <noom> for the hauls
00:14:02  <davis>
00:14:07  <noom> was losing like 3k a week in him
00:14:16  <noom> ack i closed the line lol
00:14:28  *** tokai [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:14:31  <noom> i think i stuck him on transfer
00:14:36  <davis> By default the vehicle will also collect any waiting cargo as usual (the order will show "Transfer and take cargo"). Confusingly this can include the cargo you just dropped off! If this is not what you want, you can select "No loading" from the loading options drop-down menu (so the order now reads "Transfer and Leave Empty").
00:14:39  <noom> but then he wouldnt do anything
00:14:39  <noom> just pop in and leave
00:14:42  <noom> with a full load
00:14:57  <noom> hangon
00:15:04  <noom> i cant combine transfer and leave empty
00:15:14  <noom> i change it to transfer and its *always* take cargo
00:15:14  <davis> transfer and no loading
00:15:48  <noom> i dont know how to do that
00:15:55  <noom> i click trsnader is say transfer and take cargo
00:16:06  <noom> i click no loading it changes to no unload and take cargo
00:16:22  <davis> welll
00:16:22  <noom> omg i'm so stupid sometimes
00:16:26  <noom> sorry about that, i foundi t
00:16:29  <davis> theres the dropdown where you select "transfer"
00:16:30  <davis> right?
00:16:36  <noom> i wasnt looking under the loading
00:16:40  <noom> just the unloading
00:16:40  <davis> haha
00:16:44  <davis> well here we go
00:16:45  <noom> thanks mate :D
00:16:50  <davis> yw.
00:17:00  <noom> yaaay
00:17:17  <noom> but i'm still only making 6k for hauling gas accross the entire map
00:17:41  <davis> well , that's one bad connection then haha
00:17:54  <noom> it may be because this tanker wasnt set up properly
00:18:06  <noom> i'll buy some new engines and fire the line back up
00:18:21  <davis> goodluck
00:18:45  <noom> i had another question
00:18:53  <noom> along this epic map-crossing line
00:19:02  <noom> the trains on there end up at 0% reliability very fast
00:19:11  <noom> whats going on there?
00:20:27  <davis> well , not entirely sure since I usualy play with disabled breakdowns
00:20:38  <noom> ah
00:20:47  <noom> what exactly is reliability anyway?
00:20:58  <noom> it seems i can increase it just by telling them to stop in for maintenance after each trip
00:21:07  <davis> yeah that's it excactly
00:21:16  <davis> it defines how often a train tends to breakdown
00:21:21  <noom> so its the rating on that particular train determined by how i use them
00:21:23  <noom> i see
00:21:30  <davis> if it's 0% , the train will breakdown every few minutes
00:21:40  <noom> so by popping maintenance visits in their orders, i can keep them more reliable
00:22:00  <noom> i'm guessing that increases running costs though
00:22:29  <davis> yes
00:22:39  <noom> ah i see what my problem is
00:22:51  <noom> my oil hauling trains had one maintenance stop, at the end of the entire trip
00:22:57  <noom> so they had to go all the way over AND back
00:23:02  <noom> i'll just pop one in after the unload
00:24:06  <davis> makes more sense
00:25:05  <noom> hahah funny
00:25:12  <noom> the old oil refinery i was hauling for closed :p
00:25:18  <noom> lucky i'm rich mwahaha
00:25:21  <noom> *funds a new one*
00:28:11  <davis> :D

00:31:42  <noom> ok last nooby question
00:31:47  <noom> which i'm sure is in the wiki somewhere
00:31:58  <noom> how do you increase the output of resource points such as oil rigs
00:34:07  <davis> hmm
00:34:17  <davis> well , either you service them
00:34:19  <davis> over years
00:34:24  <davis> and they usualy do increase on it's own
00:34:27  <davis> or you use the cheat
00:34:33  <davis> to increase the production values.
00:35:51  <noom> so just keep on hauling for them really
00:36:06  <noom> would servicing their other resources help too ? e.g this rig also has passengers and mail
00:36:20  <davis> not entirely sure , but i don't think it'd damage.
00:36:29  <noom> *throws a hovercraft into the fray*
00:36:46  <noom> just takes my oil tanker about 6 months to get a full load right now thats all :p
00:37:47  <davis> haha
00:39:22  <noom> just gonna have to turn off "full load" for now
00:39:26  *** glevans2 [] has joined #openttd

00:45:45  *** Devroush [] has quit []
00:54:35  <noom> davis: i have another question for you - do timetables serve any real purpose? seems i can gain the same effect just by creating a set of orders
00:58:33  <davis> never used any of those , so i won't be any help concerning that

00:06:22  <Eddi|zuHause> how many times do people have to tell you to not do that?
00:07:47  <noom> this would be the first

00:23:26  <Eddi|zuHause> oh... yes... that would explain a few things ;)
00:24:06  <SpComb> doesn't explain everything, there still something a little weird with the timestamps
00:24:09  <Eddi|zuHause> btw, i was on the logs page earlier. and on the first load, it's set to +0 timezone, and on the next loads it was set to +2
00:24:21  <SpComb> yes
00:24:30  <SpComb> the first load includes some JS that sets a cookie
00:25:11  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't think i have cookies enabled...
00:28:33  <SpComb> default tz is UTC, if it changes when you refresh, it should be the cookie thing
00:29:04  <SpComb> but what is weird is the DST wrapped hour showing up in UTC
00:29:40  <SpComb> perhaps it's something with the timezone handling and the fact that the physical logs are in a DST timezone, so it'll be fine tomorrow
00:30:38  <SpComb> (i.e. it picks one timezone and then handles the whole log file with that timezone)
00:30:58  <SpComb> but zz ->

08:40:12  <xiong> Hi.
08:40:31  <Alberth> hi
08:40:56  <xiong> YAPF, when working path signals, will attempt to reserve the *shortest* possible length of track -- up to, of course, a signal. Correct?
08:41:32  <Alberth> no
08:42:26  <Alberth> it picks the track that leads to the destination of the train
08:42:51  <Alberth> s/the track/a track/
08:44:11  <xiong> Understood. But given two or more choices...
08:44:15  <xiong>
08:45:05  <xiong> "... it will not reserve a path along the left hand track for as long as is possible, but for as short as possible."
08:45:25  *** zachanima [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
08:45:27  *** zachanima [] has joined #openttd
08:46:00  <xiong> Leaving aside the truth of this; I can experiment, although it's hard to control all variables.
08:46:12  <Alberth> 'path' means path to the destination with the least cost, it has very little to do with the length of the current block
08:46:55  <xiong> Then you say that comment is wrong? Or I'm interpreting it wrong?
08:47:10  <Alberth> where cost of passing a signal from the 'correct' side is cheaper than passing it from the 'wrong' side.
08:48:19  <xiong> Yes, I understand; that's always true. Given, though, a split/join such that two paths are possible, of equal or nearly equal length, is the track chosen predictable? If so, is it controllable?
08:48:22  <Alberth> path finders are very complicated beasts, they take #signals, directoin of signals, other trains, reserved tracks, hills, etc etc etc into account. Very hard to predict what happens in a case
08:49:22  <xiong> I can certainly experiment and try to control as many variables as possible. But if it is *known* to be a random choice and uncontrollable, I won't bother.
08:49:45  <Alberth> it is deterministic, but very complex to reason about
08:49:57  <Alberth> imho too difficult
08:50:15  <xiong> I don't consider putting a standard path signal in the 'discouraged' track, wrong way, to be a decent method. The penalty for that is too high, so I think.
08:50:49  <xiong> One might end up with a train taking a really circuitous route to avoid the wrong-facing standard path sig.
08:51:36  <Alberth> I never use bi-directional signals, except with terminus platforms sometimes
08:52:02  <xiong> Well, then, it's not an issue for either of us.
08:52:21  <xiong> Frankly, I don't quite see the point of standard path signals. Perhaps that time will come.
08:52:26  <Alberth> that wiki tries to use a track in two directions. Very complicated, just add another track, and the problem is solved
08:52:49  <xiong> Yeh well, my case is not that case.
08:53:20  <Alberth> block signals allow 1 train in a block only. Very limiting for eg junctions, or platform accessing
08:53:44  <Alberth> path signals allow as many trains as there are non-crossing paths
08:54:14  <xiong> Er, I'm not talking about block signals at all. I said, standard path, as opposed to one-way path.
08:54:38  <andythenorth_> xiong: standard path signals can allow a train to 'escape' a gridlock
08:54:47  <andythenorth_> by reversing
08:54:57  <xiong> Hm. That implies sloppy signalling.
08:55:00  <andythenorth_> well yes
08:55:15  <andythenorth_> but path signals enable sloppy signalling - for a certain playing style ;)
08:55:22  <andythenorth_> ymmv
08:55:27  <Alberth> very few people do perfect signalling at all times
08:55:53  <xiong> Methinks I'd rather see the desperate train backing up in the block, seeing the 1-path, going forward again, hitting the jam, repeat repeat, and call my attention to the issue.
08:56:41  <Alberth> that may be your (as well as mine) style of playing. Other people have different ideas
08:56:44  <xiong> I do get the feeling that normal block plus presignal sets is more challenge.
08:57:04  <andythenorth_> xiong: sounds plausible
08:57:33  <xiong> So long as I'm stuck with existing signal sets, though, I simplify the problem by using 1-path signals exclusively. I get the feeling it's a cheap way out.
08:57:39  <andythenorth_> block / presignals existed before PBS, and a fully-signalled reliable network can be built with them
08:57:45  <Alberth> xiong: that's why OpenTTD has so many options, signals, etc. You can pick what you like
08:58:16  <xiong> Oh, I'm sure of it. I started with presignal trees. I just find them too hard to diagnose.
08:58:26  <xiong> But that's not why I'm here.
08:58:30  <xiong> My case is an acceleration/deceleration siding. I have mainline running along, then a parallel track, not meant for through traffic, for getting on or off.
08:59:21  <xiong> I think it would be better to be able to encourage through traffic to avoid the siding; but even were it possible, I'm not sure I'd want to forbid it entirely.
08:59:47  <xiong> So, that's my case; and that's why I asked.
09:00:23  <Alberth>  we have a wiki page about, but no text :(
09:00:36  * xiong looks
09:00:53  <Alberth>  this is the real wizard solution
09:02:01  <dihedral> i read that post in the forums as a good bye actually
09:02:01  <Alberth> a simpler solution is to add some track to the main line, so a train after the blocked one at the main line can pass both
09:02:05  <dihedral> looks like i was wrong
09:02:48  <Alberth> or, if you have breakdowns enabled, it is just another source of stopping, so nothing to worry about :)
09:02:57  <Alberth> good morning dihedral
09:03:38  <dihedral> lol :-)
09:03:41  <dihedral> good morning Alberth :-)
09:03:42  * andythenorth_ bangs head
09:03:49  <andythenorth_> am I missing a way to escape a cb result?
09:04:10  <andythenorth_> renum whines about \b12 80
09:04:31  <andythenorth_> /!!Warning (209): Offset 24: Found byte 1 of a 1-byte escape while reading byte 1 of a 2-byte field.
09:05:02  <Alberth> nice error :)
09:05:09  <dihedral> anyway :-) time for church :-)
09:05:29  <xiong> Alberth, Not sure where you'd add more track to the mainline. The siding is already extra. For that matter, I have a center track, too -- I've reserved sufficient right-of-way for 5 parallel tracks, the length of the mainline.
09:05:47  <Alberth> \b12 is a byte with decimal value 12 ?      if so, you could try 0C
09:06:02  <andythenorth_> :)
09:06:11  <andythenorth_> I wanted to do it with escapes
09:06:22  <xiong> This is intended to support simply a double-track mainline, though; one track each way. The other three are spare positions, for loading sidings and passing sidings.
09:06:25  <andythenorth_> sometimes using escapes creates more head-scratching work than just using hex :P
09:07:29  <Alberth> you need a more wise renum guru than me for that problem :)
09:08:18  <andythenorth_> back to hex :P
09:08:56  <Alberth> you didn't start an esc sequence at the line above by accident?
09:10:08  <andythenorth_> nah - it's a valid renum complaint
09:10:16  <andythenorth_> it's trying to help me :P
09:10:18  <Alberth> ie the error looks like you did \w\b12
09:10:27  <Alberth> or so :)
09:10:45  <andythenorth_> well the result should be \w
09:10:47  <xiong> Alberth, I may be wrong but I think the topic that applies to my case is Balancing, not Priority.
09:10:56  <andythenorth_> so \b12 80 doesn't look right to renum

09:35:34  <Alberth> does anybody understand the meaning of T1 and T2 in
09:40:23  <andythenorth_> Alberth: I need to understand them for future work in FIRS
09:40:43  <andythenorth_> so they are two time windows?
09:40:56  <Alberth> it seems that way
09:41:10  <andythenorth_> expressed in game ticks?
09:41:55  <andythenorth_> and one ultimate result will be that there is a change in the gradient of the cargo payment graph at points T1 and T2?
09:42:24  <Alberth> I read it as: T1 seems a lower bound, and then a linear decreasing price upto T2. After T2, it becomes very fuzzy.
09:43:07  <andythenorth_> I'm sure it makes sense to someone :D
09:43:09  <Alberth> oh, it goes down even after after T2. Of course
09:43:17  <Alberth> +faster
09:43:19  <xiong> Here's another thing that seems to be taken for granted: signal spacing. I'm not talking now about junctions of any kind. But on straight track, what reason is there not to signal every tile?
09:43:32  <Alberth> it looks very ugly imho
09:43:52  <Alberth> and fixing mistakes with stuck trains is complicated
09:43:56  <xiong> Game default seems to be 4 but it looks as though most coop players show 2 tile signal spacing.
09:44:26  <Alberth> and I am sure they have a good reason for picking 2 and not 1 or 3
09:44:37  <xiong> Hm. Ugly, I don't worry. Stuck trains is operational.
09:44:37  <Alberth> I use 5 or 6 usually
09:46:22  <xiong> If, for example, spacing is 4 tiles and there are, say, a line of three trains, all stopped, one to a block -- let them all be 4 tile long trains -- then when the first one starts off, it will have to gain a 4 tile lead before the next in line even starts to accelerate. Tighter spacing should make jams clear faster.
09:46:33  <xiong> I'm only theorizing.
09:46:58  <Alberth> you should build for not getting jams :)
09:47:10  <xiong> But I can see that if a train gets stuck to the point where intervention is required, too many sigs might complicate issues.
09:47:14  <Alberth> the capacity increases with less long blocks
09:47:34  <xiong> Agree. And you should build for not getting stuck. ;D
09:48:07  <xiong> ... which leads me to the tightest possible spacing, 1 tile, for max capacity.
09:48:12  <Alberth> and with block length of 1, a junction will have double block length
09:48:58  <Alberth> coop players probably care more for equal block lengths
09:49:00  <xiong> Junctions is another issue entirely. I'm carefully putting the first signal after a junction with enough space in front of the signal to allow the longest planned train to wait.
09:49:44  <Alberth> rendering your tight signalling useless :)
09:49:46  <xiong> So, since I'm planning a max train length of 6 tiles, then counting the junction tile itself as 0, I put the first signal at tile 7, possibly 8.
09:50:26  <xiong> And if another junction intervenes, I don't signal it at all. I let the train going that way stop at the previous signal and wait safely until the way is clear through both junctions.
09:52:01  <xiong> Well, dunno if tight signals on the straight are useless. I really have no idea. This is all new to me. The current map is the first one I expect to build out fully. All the previous ones ran into damfool fairly quickly.
09:52:45  <xiong> This is also the first I've made an offline plan for:
09:52:47  <Alberth> suppose you have an endless stream of trains. You add a block of length 7, how long spaced do the trains get?
09:53:39  <Alberth> oh, you even make a plan ahead :)
09:53:42  <xiong> Dunno, Alberth; I have to try it out. I can answer the question in hydrodynamics and electronics.
09:55:06  <Alberth> this is simple reasoning. suppose a train is in the long block. there is a train waiting after it. when can the second train start running again?
09:55:25  <Alberth> ie how many tiles are between both trains then?
09:55:31  <xiong> You seem to think that after returning to 1 tile spacing, trains would remain spaced far out, after the long block. That would be true if there were no other complications. But I *suspect* that if, further down the road, there was a slowdown, then all the 1-tile straight track would fill up.
09:57:28  <xiong> But then, I'm only reasoning by analogy with things I *do* know -- queues in chains of I/O buffers, etc. Well, at some point, I gotta try something. Coop guys seem to go with 2-tile spacing although I'm pretty sure they run some very long trains. I'll try that first.

18:02:40  <Jolteon> Any way to disable sounds, or otherwise bypass the issue, if it is that?

18:17:50  <planetmaker> Jolteon: and the same with other trees?
18:18:14  <Rubidium> I think it's more something with a particular colour of brown

18:18:45  <Jolteon> Rubidium: no. Thats just OpenTTD + vista.

18:19:56  <Sacro> hmm, drivers updated?
18:20:03  <Jolteon> planetmaker: Its not as obvious on some trees, but the ones on the start screen have the most obvious in your faceness.
18:20:21  <Jolteon> I've also loaded a game, its pretty much A-OK, except the trees. No white pixels on the grass, or anything.

18:21:16  <Rubidium> early night Terkhen :)
18:21:18  <planetmaker> good night to you
18:21:18  <Sacro> Yeah, i'd check dxdiag out
18:21:20  <Sacro> night Terkhen
18:21:31  <Jolteon> Rubidium: hm, possible. I didn't really move around the game, just the opening thing after I randomly generated a map
18:21:57  <Jolteon> Ah yes, just reloaded it on the laptop. Definately on the fields, also on the brown of the train tracks.
18:22:11  <Rubidium> that made me think of a particular colour of brown being replaced
18:22:20  <Eddi|zuHause> so, did you try 32bpp yet?
18:22:21  <Rubidium> which is a trick I've seen being used for playing back video
18:22:37  <Eddi|zuHause> see also known-bugs.txt
18:22:41  <Jolteon> Rubidium: nup, definately nothing running in the background, I'll try switching to windowed, see if it helped.

18:27:07  <planetmaker> nice
18:28:20  <Eddi|zuHause> i have a wild theory: being aligned every 4 pixels might mean some MMX command goes wrong (MMX commands tend to handle 4 8-bit pixels simultaneously)
18:28:23  <Jolt|Slaptop> Alright, found a pattern now, anything above 1024 x 768 causes the issue full screen, anything else works fine, full screen or not.

20:15:18  <andythenorth_> michi_cc: what does it do?  Changes TE values?
20:16:13  <Hirundo> Is it possible to pass certain arguments to a python class (like a class template in C++) ?
20:17:27  <michi_cc> andythenorth_: changed realistic acceleration to make it more "realistic" and "slow" the acceleration. This also affects road vehicles and in e.g. HEQS I think power and TE are quite low for the vehicle sizes which makes work not that great with the patch.
20:17:27  *** kenneth [] has joined #openttd
20:18:53  <michi_cc> andythenorth_: As you know better than me how HEWS vehicles should behave, maybe you can check their behavior with the patch to see whether the patch constants (that are currently mostly reality-based) or the HEWS values should be changed.

20:20:05  *** pugi [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
20:20:18  <michi_cc> No worries, and you certainly don't need to test every single vehicle, just some to see if the patch isn't too wrong.
20:20:56  <kenneth> can you tweak the source code for a dedicated server, compile run and will it allow a 1.0.4 client to connect with no desync ?
20:21:55  <Eddi|zuHause> the newgrf concept of "Tractive Effort" is kinda ill-designed, because it describes the resulting force, instead of the effective weight. so you can't apply friction-coefficients
20:23:03  <Eddi|zuHause> you should rather give the fraction of the weight that lies on the driven axles, and the game applies friction coefficients. but that needs changing all newgrfs
20:23:18  <Rubidium> kenneth: it depends on the changes and source code you're starting with
20:25:12  <Rubidium> but generally people asking this question are those that want to change it in such a way that it will desync
20:25:33  <andythenorth_> Eddi|zuHause: I didn't know that :o
20:25:50  <andythenorth_> but tbh, I just fool around with 'TE' until the vehicle does what I want on the default slope settings
20:25:57  <andythenorth_> I thought that was 'wrong'

20:27:24  *** HerzogDeXtEr [~Flex@] has joined #openttd
20:27:43  <Eddi|zuHause> but i did not find anything like that anywhere in the code
20:27:51  <michi_cc> Eddi|zuHause: cos(a) ~ 1 for a near 0
20:28:32  <Eddi|zuHause> yes... but "10%" is rather not "near 0" anymore...
20:28:40  <planetmaker> it's near enough
20:29:02  <Eddi|zuHause> for 0th order approximation?
20:29:09  <michi_cc> For 5% steepness, that becomes cos(0.0873) = 0.9962
20:29:26  <planetmaker> ^
20:30:50  <planetmaker> michi_cc: that small?
20:31:00  <michi_cc> yes, that small :)
20:31:02  <planetmaker> 10% = 0.1 * 45° slope
20:31:05  <Rubidium> well, reducing it by 99.6% is quite a lot :)

20:32:02  <Rubidium> that's larger than 5%
20:32:06  <planetmaker> 100% slope = 45°
20:32:07  <Eddi|zuHause> that's rubbish
20:32:14  <Eddi|zuHause> you need to do arctan(0.1)
20:32:32  <planetmaker> = 0.1

20:32:46  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause: Error: 'arctan' is not a defined function.

20:32:50  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause: 0.99503719021
20:33:18  <michi_cc> It's still small
20:33:33  <planetmaker> the speed rounding is worse than 1%
20:33:39  *** HerzogDeXtEr1 [~Flex@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:33:51  <planetmaker> so indeed
20:34:57  <Eddi|zuHause> so, someone should do a comment "cos(10% slope) = 0.995, so effect of angle is negligible"
20:38:16  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: for 10%, arctan(x)=x, but not for 100%... 45° is DEFINITELY not near 0 for any sane definition of "near"
20:38:38  <planetmaker> I didn't say so
20:38:51  *** pugi [] has joined #openttd
20:38:53  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: but you used it in your calculations as if it were...
20:39:34  <planetmaker> % slope is defined as height increase per horizontal distance
20:39:50  <planetmaker> So 45° angle is 100% slope
20:39:52  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: your equations result in 10*arctan(10%) = arctan(100%)
20:40:16  <Eddi|zuHause> which is not the case, because arctan is _not_ linear near 100%
20:40:33  <SmatZ> [21:39:36] <planetmaker> % slope is defined as height increase per horizontal distance
20:40:36  <SmatZ> interesting
20:40:48  <SmatZ> I thought it's the same as "grades"
20:40:54  <planetmaker> it is
20:41:02  <SmatZ> oh
20:41:12  <SmatZ> then I dont know what "grades" are :)
20:41:19  <planetmaker> except translations now play us a trick
20:41:21  <Eddi|zuHause> (delta y)/(delta x)
20:41:51  <planetmaker>
20:41:51  <Eddi|zuHause> = tan(angle)
20:42:12  <SmatZ> thanks :)
20:42:27  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: you try to prove me wrong, but I always only argued for the small angle approx. and never said 45° is small
20:43:11  <planetmaker> the 45° case was to just illustrate the meaning of 100% slope
20:43:21  <Eddi|zuHause> from here: <planetmaker> 10% = 0.1 * 45° slope
20:43:23  <Eddi|zuHause> to here: <planetmaker> @calc cos(pi/40)
20:43:34  <planetmaker> that's 10% and small
20:43:38  <Eddi|zuHause> you implicitly used that equation above
20:44:01  <Eddi|zuHause> pi/40 is nowhere near 10% slope
20:44:17  <planetmaker> pi/4 is 45°
20:44:24  <Eddi|zuHause> because you used 1/10 * pi/4
20:44:30  <planetmaker> pi/40 is 4.5° is 10%
20:44:58  <planetmaker> well... yes :-P
20:45:05  <Rubidium> that's not quite 100% true :)
20:45:29  <planetmaker> it's off by 1.21°
20:45:41  <Eddi|zuHause> that's like 30% off :p
20:45:54  <planetmaker> I'm astrophysicists. Powers of 10 matter only
20:46:04  <SmatZ> :)
20:46:06  <Eddi|zuHause> and that's entirely my point
20:46:07  <planetmaker> everything else is of order of one
20:46:27  <Rubidium> say that to the police officer when you're going with 200 km/h through the city centre with 50 km/h limit :)
20:46:42  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: you don't honestly now argue with me in order to prove that slope doesn't matter? That's all I always said...

21:15:06  <planetmaker> You should definitely write some lyrics ;-)
21:17:53  <andythenorth_> michi_cc: the modified physics values are a little harsh on HEQS mining trucks
21:18:12  <andythenorth_> I have slope steepness 7%
21:19:18  <planetmaker> make them more powerful ;-)
21:19:30  <andythenorth_> it's quite fine-grained
21:19:39  <andythenorth_> 6% is just a little too steep
21:19:45  <andythenorth_> 5% is a little too easy
21:21:03  <michi_cc> The calculated resistance actually is less than real-life, so either real-life values just don't work too good with RVs in contrast to trains or the HEQS values are too low.
21:21:18  <andythenorth_> the HEQS hp is accurate, or a little generous
21:21:21  <andythenorth_> the TE is tricky
21:21:27  <andythenorth_> TE might be low
21:21:37  <michi_cc> Can you try increasing the TE a bit? For rubber vehicles the values seem a bit too low to me.
21:22:02  <andythenorth_> yes, but not right now :)
21:22:11  <andythenorth_> you could checkout HEQS if you want to adjust
21:22:37  <andythenorth_> it's tricky for vehicles with trailers.
21:22:37  <Eddi|zuHause> TE = weight * driven axles fraction * friction coefficient
21:23:05  <michi_cc> Even under bad road conditions the friction coefficient should be something like 0.7 of the weight on the powered axles. The only problem is to determine how much weight actually is on the powered axles.
21:23:12  <andythenorth_> exactly
21:23:14  <Eddi|zuHause> where the fraction may vary on weight distribution, not just number of axles
21:23:42  <andythenorth_> so with a vehicle that has a fifth-wheel trailer, going up hill, a great deal of the weight may not contribute to drive
21:23:54  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
21:23:58  <andythenorth_> and with drawbar trailers it's actually easier
21:24:09  <andythenorth_> none of weight contributes to drive
21:24:22  <andythenorth_> but iirc RV physics discounts weight of trailed vehicles
21:24:26  <Eddi|zuHause> i'd just ignore the trailer
21:25:04  <andythenorth_> Eddi|zuHause: when I set the values, I just tweaked until the vehicle reached a chosen speed on an n tile slope
21:25:12  <andythenorth_> I ignored the physics :P
21:25:19  <michi_cc> A simple truck (without any trailers) should have most of the weight on the powered rear axles, so 0.5 of the weight is probably a not too shabby estimate
21:25:50  <Eddi|zuHause> also problematic is the case that the weight [and thus the TE] should differ between loaded and unloaded state, which is a non-issue for rail engines
21:26:00  <andythenorth_> michi_cc: with your patch HEQS looks to perform about right with 5% slope steepness
21:26:12  <andythenorth_> however if default is 7% that implies one of us has to change somethng
21:26:25  <Eddi|zuHause> openttd default is 3%
21:26:31  <Eddi|zuHause> ttdpatch default is 5%
21:26:33  <andythenorth_> not for RVs
21:26:35  <michi_cc> Only for rail, not for road
21:27:07  <andythenorth_> If I change HEQS, it's a bit broken for older versions of openttd
21:27:11  <michi_cc> What other sets supply TE/power for realistic acceleration? The default vehicles seem to do okay with the changes.
21:27:17  <andythenorth_> and I have to do the work :P
21:27:27  <andythenorth_> eGRVTS has it, but inconsistently
21:27:36  <andythenorth_> the horses are broken
21:27:56  <andythenorth_> some of the other vehicles are  a little over-powered in my view

21:57:38  <marc-andre> i try to get into the save games, but i wanted to ask how all the parameters are saved ? i decompressed a savegame already and opened it in a hex editor, but now i'm stuck
21:57:40  <planetmaker> hi
21:58:07  <marc-andre> am i on the right way ?
21:58:09  <planetmaker> you want to hex-edit savegames?!
21:58:27  <marc-andre> planetmaker: rather retrieve informations from the savegame (stats mostly)
21:58:59  <planetmaker> the save game is divided into chunks.
21:59:24  <Rubidium> it has a number of (RIFF) chunks. The precise definition of the data in each chunk depends on the savegame version
21:59:29  <Rubidium> there
21:59:34  <marc-andre> ok, that makes sense from what i found in the saveload.cpp
21:59:47  <Rubidium> there's no documentation about the format except what is in the source code in the saveload directory
22:00:34  <marc-andre> but besides that a savegame is compressed with zlib, is there anything else ? are the chunks themself compressed ?
22:00:37  *** theholyduck [~holyduck@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:00:53  <glx> no, only the final data is compressed
22:00:55  <SmatZ> marc-andre: the whole savegame image is compressed by lzo/zlib/lzma
22:01:07  <SmatZ> it can be stored uncompressed as well
22:02:01  <marc-andre> ok, well i managed to uncompress a savegame, but besides the company names, player names and the newgrfs i couldn't find much

22:02:23  <SmatZ> hello zachanima
22:02:32  <zachanima> hello SmatZ
22:02:37  <planetmaker> binary data, of course. The settings are a bunch of numbers of variable sizes. Depending on version different ones
22:02:40  <SmatZ> marc-andre: numbers are stored in big endian format
22:03:04  <planetmaker> uh. and big endian
22:03:28  <marc-andre> where are the savegame versions defined ?
22:03:43  <Rubidium> somewhere in the very beginning of the file
22:04:22  <marc-andre> same as the game version ?
22:04:34  <SmatZ> no
22:04:43  <SmatZ> extern const uint16 SAVEGAME_VERSION = 151; ///< current savegame version of OpenTTD
22:05:45  <marc-andre> ahh, i have 138 in the src file...
22:06:49  <SmatZ> if you want to gather savegame statistics, the best way is to place your code at the end of AfterLoadGame()
22:06:54  <SmatZ> and then call exit(0)
22:07:02  <marc-andre> ok, different approach : in fact i try to retrieve company stats from the savegame via python. can i do that just by decompressing the savegame ?
22:07:17  <marc-andre> without modifing the codebase
22:07:42  *** perk11 [~perk11@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:07:48  <Eddi|zuHause> you can start a multiplayer server and get some basic stats through the network interface
22:07:51  <Rubidium> depends on the stats and amount of effort you want
22:07:56  <SmatZ> yes, if you know where to find those data :p
22:08:04  <marc-andre> more then the server offers...
22:08:04  <Eddi|zuHause> there are already some libs for that
22:08:24  <marc-andre> i only found libs who acces the server console
22:08:54  <Eddi|zuHause> everything further than console or network interface can only be done by source code changes
22:09:05  <marc-andre> i see
22:09:20  <Eddi|zuHause> you can't really decode the savegame without having the source, anyway...
22:09:49  <Eddi|zuHause> it's definitely not easier than changing the source to output your data
22:10:09  <Eddi|zuHause> or you could write an AI
22:10:39  <marc-andre> or a program based on the saveload code
22:11:12  <SmatZ> which would mean modifying the program everytime saveload code changes
22:11:18  <SmatZ> if you want it up-to-date
22:11:21  <Eddi|zuHause> well, you can load the savegame, start your AI, and the AI can access/output the data for you
22:11:37  <Eddi|zuHause> AI can read most data you can also view as a player
22:11:53  <marc-andre> what about a newgrf ? possible ?
22:12:03  <Eddi|zuHause> AIs are done in a scripting language called "squirrel"
22:12:17  <Eddi|zuHause> nope, newgrfs can't do that.
22:12:48  <marc-andre> ok, the AI can read the informations, but how can i output them into a file ?
22:13:27  <Eddi|zuHause> by issueing debug statements
22:13:48  <Eddi|zuHause> with the right settings, those end up in the console, which you can redirect to a file
22:14:06  <SmatZ> can AI output to console?
22:14:14  <marc-andre> well, that takes proportions i can't handle...
22:14:57  <Eddi|zuHause> SmatZ: i'm pretty sure that's possible
22:14:57  <Rubidium> SmatZ: the stdout console
22:15:05  <Rubidium> given the right debug level
22:15:27  <SmatZ> ok :)
22:15:42  <marc-andre> thanks for all your answers
22:15:55  <SmatZ> I am just not sure if AI can gather the information you want
22:15:58  <Eddi|zuHause> hm... i fear HE has now found a valid argument against action 14 :(
22:16:03  *** lewymati [~lewymati@] has quit []
22:16:31  <Eddi|zuHause> apparently finding unknown actions makes TTDPatch 2.5 barf...
22:17:48  <Rubidium> pff... he ought to make stuff compatible with stable versions, not some arbitrary beta release
22:18:33  <SmatZ> silly firefox is unusable on systems with IO load
22:18:38  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't think aiming at 2.0 improves things :p
22:19:38  <SmatZ> because it uses some werd DB engine
22:19:39  <SmatZ> that sometimes operates a lot on data stored on HDD
22:19:41  <SmatZ> causing firefox to lock up for tens of seconds
22:19:42  <SmatZ> what a crappy idea!
22:20:08  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: ofcourse it does, then he can't use engine sounds either
22:21:21  <Rubidium> SmatZ: yes, firefox writes its config file and due to a FS bug syncs to disk and only when that succeeded renames
22:22:22  <SmatZ> Rubidium: well, openttd does the same :)
22:22:40  <Rubidium> yep, but only upon closing (or saveconfig)
22:24:26  <Rubidium> though the question is why he need 2.5 support. What does he expect from that?
22:24:36  *** KouDy [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
22:25:33  *** Brianetta [] has joined #openttd
22:26:55  <Eddi|zuHause> a) he thinks it's more widespread than 2.6, and b) everything else in the grf is compatible, so no reason to throw that away
22:27:28  <Rubidium> ah well, it's "only" 4.|3| years old
22:27:49  <Rubidium> (give or take a day or two)
22:28:03  <Eddi|zuHause> that's younger than most of his GRFs :p
22:28:40  <Eddi|zuHause> and this is only an "update" to his 0.4x series of newships, not a 0.5 release
22:29:47  <Rubidium> ah well, it won't be on bananas so most of our users won't use it anyways. So why bother?
22:30:28  <Rubidium> especially as OpenGFX plans to go for the DOS palette, which would mean the default palette for a lot of people changes
22:30:28  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm still working on that
22:34:01  * Rubidium wonders who would be willing to go through the 4+ years of changelog to compile a 2.5b9 to 2.5b10 changelog
22:34:24  <Rubidium> as well as checking whether other commits to their trunk need to be backported
22:34:29  <planetmaker> it should be 3.0-beta1 straight
22:34:52  <planetmaker> maybe even w/o beta1
22:35:01  <Eddi|zuHause> it should be 3.0-final-don't-bother-asking
22:35:09  <planetmaker> :-)
22:36:29  <Eddi|zuHause> apparently ttdpatch is more bitchy with un-renum'd grfs...

22:55:52  <Eddi|zuHause> the versioning of nforenum is... problematic...
22:56:07  <Eddi|zuHause> compare:
22:56:09  <Eddi|zuHause> NFORenum r766 - Copyright (C) 2004-2010 by Dale McCoy
22:56:16  <Eddi|zuHause> NFORenum v3.4.6 r2309 - Copyright 2004-2009 Dale McCoy.
22:56:52  <Eddi|zuHause> first should better say "v5.0 r766"
22:57:34  <Rubidium> but then when you ask: what version of NFOREnum do you run you'll get "v5.0", which isn't the right version
22:57:56  <Lakie> 5.0.1?
22:58:00  *** TheMask96 [] has joined #openttd
22:58:01  <Rubidium> even then, nforenum's binary was changed from renum to nforenum which is more problematic
22:58:59  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, but the worse headache was really to decide which one is newer...
22:59:14  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: then use 5.0.0!
22:59:35  <Eddi|zuHause> it's ammlers fault
22:59:51  <Eddi|zuHause> > rpm -qf /usr/bin/nforenum
22:59:52  <Eddi|zuHause> grfcodec-5.0.r766-6.2.x86_64
22:59:59  *** andythenorth_ [] has quit [Quit: andythenorth_]
23:00:05  <Rubidium> and nforenum/grfcodec now have somewhat regular releases again, whereas it has been "released" the same way as ttdpatch for a long time (i.e. only nightlies)
23:00:27  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: then don't use his nightly builds :)
23:01:26  <Rubidium> guess we should release 5.0.1 now, that'll be seen as a lower version than 5.0.rXYZ. That's going to be FUN!
23:02:08  <Rubidium> although that doesn't honour Lakie's work enough
23:02:51  <Eddi|zuHause> NFORenum 5.0.0 - Copyright (C) 2004-2010 by Dale McCoy
23:02:55  <Eddi|zuHause> better now? ;)
23:03:19  <Rubidium> should be for you :)
23:03:54  <Rubidium> unless you want to compile an OpenGFX nightly (or the extra graphics of OpenTTD in trunk)
23:04:00  <Eddi|zuHause> hm. nforenum complains that it's a version 6 grf, but openttd happily processes the action 14 anyway
23:04:14  <Eddi|zuHause> so why the limitation to version 7 grfs?
23:04:30  <Rubidium> language codes IIRC
23:05:36  <Eddi|zuHause> but that's only a consistency problem, not a technical one?
23:07:41  <Rubidium> well, it only supports the version 7 language IDs
23:08:52  <Rubidium> *and*
23:09:12  <Rubidium> action14 needs to be before action8 (or we have to scan the whole NewGRF when OpenTTD starts)
23:09:23  <Rubidium> and action8 defines the NewGRF version
23:09:51  <Eddi|zuHause> so actually you don't even know the version yet when processing the action 14? ;)
23:09:58  <Rubidium> yes
23:10:00  <Eddi|zuHause> and you silently ignore it
23:10:17  <Rubidium> OpenTTD probably does
23:10:33  <Rubidium> or it just assigns the translations to the wrong language
23:10:45  <Rubidium> (that's actually likely what happens)
23:10:57  <Eddi|zuHause> well, it did show the german translation...
23:11:27  <Eddi|zuHause> using the version 7 language codes in the action 14, and version 6 language codes in the rest of the grf
23:11:59  <Eddi|zuHause> anyway, i don't think there's a way around ttdpatch complaining about invalid sprite for older versions
23:12:05  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:12:43  <Rubidium> there is, but that involves taking over TTDPatch development and actually releasing a new 2.5 with "ignore action 14"
