01:23:50  <supermop> hello
01:23:55  <Samu> hi
01:24:31  <supermop> i have a question about some .nfo
01:25:19  <supermop> don't know if anyone here has been reading my thread
01:25:32  <supermop> where i am showing how much of an idiot i am
01:25:36  <supermop> but
01:26:21  <supermop> basically I'd like to know right now if i can have multiple varaction 02s for one station id
01:26:56  <supermop> well not 'right now'
01:27:13  <supermop> but thats what i am focusing on at the moment
01:30:36  *** KritiK [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:33:08  <Eddi|zuHause> i think you haven't properly understood my description of the tree structure yet
01:34:54  <supermop> thats an understatement
01:35:07  <supermop> im looking at your diagram now
01:36:31  <supermop> so if action 3 says to use set id 03, and varaaction 2 says that 03 consists of either 01 or 02
01:37:10  <supermop> and then two separate action 2s define what goes into sets 01 or 02
01:38:04  <supermop> is it possible for some ranges to use both 01 and 02 at the same time?
01:43:46  <Eddi|zuHause> i think not, but you can make a 04 consisting of (duplicated) sprites from both
01:43:54  <Samu> wow, i've just been asked twice if I wanted to try out the same vehicle
01:44:15  <Eddi|zuHause> Samu: happens when you mess with newgrfs inbetween
01:44:52  <Samu> how exactly?
01:45:23  <Eddi|zuHause> Samu: if you hit "apply" in the newgrf setting, the introduction dates are re-randomized
01:45:48  <Eddi|zuHause> so if the new introduction date lies in the future, then you can get the same offer again
01:46:14  <Samu> I didn't use a newgrf for this game
01:46:17  <Samu> hmm
01:48:06  <Ammler> orudge: every thread which is locked because of stupidities could as could also be removed like spam. Else it shouldn't be closed.
01:48:09  <supermop> an action 4?
01:48:30  <Eddi|zuHause> no
01:48:35  <Eddi|zuHause> an action 2 with the id 04
01:48:35  <Samu> I gotta go, cyas
01:48:49  <Samu> Trans AI won
01:48:50  <supermop> ah ok
01:48:52  <Eddi|zuHause> or any other id.
01:48:54  <Samu> bye
01:48:59  <supermop> bye
01:49:03  *** Samu [] has left #openttd []
01:49:30  <supermop> so in that cas, can their be multiple different varaction 2s?
01:49:34  <supermop> case
01:49:43  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
01:49:49  <supermop> ok thats good
01:49:49  <Eddi|zuHause> as many as you like
01:50:08  <supermop> maybe its easier for me to explain what i am trying to do
01:50:30  <supermop> so at least i dontt sound like a ttal idiot
01:50:44  <supermop> ahhh except i cannot type
01:50:51  <Eddi|zuHause> you don't... ;)
01:51:01  <supermop> i am eating a cookie as i type...
01:51:13  <Eddi|zuHause> i've seen some total idiots in my time, you're definitely not one of those ;)
01:51:40  <supermop> well thats good
01:51:46  <supermop> thanks
01:52:01  <supermop> basically i want a tile with 4 sprites on it
01:52:26  <supermop> and i want to turn them on or off based on varaction 2 results
01:53:19  <Eddi|zuHause> i think you should decode some other GRFs, and try to understand how they did it.
01:53:35  <supermop> that might help
01:53:41  <supermop> when i first started mlss
01:53:46  <Eddi|zuHause> like in newstats.grf it has some tiles that show fences
01:53:57  <Eddi|zuHause> depending on which neighbouring tiles are stations or non-stations
01:54:25  <supermop> yeah i just want to make simple fences that apear on the edge if that edge is the boundary of the station
01:54:43  <supermop> i havent seen that grf on bananas
01:55:11  <Eddi|zuHause> unfortunately, MB has been reluctant to upload any of his grfs there...
01:55:22  <supermop> yeah
01:55:30  <supermop> i also dont want to rip anyone off
01:55:49  <Eddi|zuHause> it's buried deep in the graphics forum, on or in the coop-grf-pack.
01:56:54  <supermop> i had so much trouble understanding japanese stations without comments
01:56:58  <Eddi|zuHause> there's a difference between copying someone's work, and trying to learn how to do it from someones work.
01:57:07  <supermop> but i feel like i need to figure this out
01:57:12  <supermop> yeah
01:57:39  <supermop> i mean if some just coded my set for me, that would be great. but its not going to happen
01:57:55  <supermop> and i want to draw more complicated sets later
01:58:07  <supermop> so i need to learn alot of stuff
01:59:34  <Eddi|zuHause> well, there are maybe a handful of guys who have coded station sets so far. i'm sure if you make your question specific enough, they're more than willing to help
02:01:12  <supermop> do you think stations are harder than railtypes, or the other way aound?
02:15:32  <Eddi|zuHause> i have the feeling stations are one of the most complicated
02:16:24  <Eddi|zuHause> railtypes have almost no useful action 2 variables, so there's not much complexity to be expected there
02:16:48  <supermop> hm
02:17:17  *** pugi [] has quit [Quit: I reject your reality and substitute my own]
02:17:40  <supermop> just so i am clear on your tree diagram
02:18:37  <supermop> action 3 says to use a set which is defined by varaction 2, and varaction 2 uses sets from regular action 2s?
02:19:07  <supermop> and the regular action 2s use sprites from an action 1
02:19:16  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, varaction 2 may use other varaction 2 as well
02:19:16  <supermop> ?
02:19:21  <supermop> ok
02:19:26  <supermop> so you can nest it?
02:19:36  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
02:19:48  *** Fuco [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:20:02  <Eddi|zuHause> like branches of a tree, you may have further subbranches
02:20:18  <supermop> all all of these set ids start from 00, and I can start over at 00 for the next tile?
02:21:01  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, you can reuse an ID if you know you don't have to reference the old action 2 anymore
02:23:37  *** perk11 [~perk11@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:24:02  <supermop> ok
02:25:01  <supermop> and where do i define which sprites go into each action 2
02:29:15  *** roboboy [] has joined #openttd
02:30:01  <Eddi|zuHause> in the action 1, i suppose... but i really don't know
02:31:11  <supermop> yeah, this is where i am gettin stuck
02:32:24  <Eddi|zuHause> you can have one big action 1, and then multiple (non-var) action 2 that pick spritesets from this action 1
02:32:41  <supermop> whoa really?
02:33:05  <Eddi|zuHause> then you can have any number of varaction2 that pick between the previous action 2
02:33:09  <supermop> i thought only action 00 picks sprites in the action 1
02:33:12  <Eddi|zuHause> and then one action 3
02:33:38  <Eddi|zuHause> action 0 never picks any sprites
02:35:59  <supermop> but thats where you use the 0042D etc numbers and set up the bounding box...
02:36:09  <supermop> hm
02:36:26  <supermop> i must have a fundamental misunderstanding here
02:37:07  <supermop> its amazing my earlier grf worked at all

04:03:23  *** Chrill [] has joined #openttd
04:06:08  <xiong> I have decided that an early goal is to jail the towns; by which I mean to ring them with company reserved land and track. Previously, I figured on building bus stops early and running a little local service to stimulate towns. Then, I thought no, I don't actually want the towns to grow, except under my direction.
04:06:54  <Chrill> xiong: prevent towns from building roads. That way, there will be no room for expansion unless you construct the roads yourself
04:06:56  <Chrill> it works for me
04:07:15  <Chrill> the whole ring business is way more complicated when there is a setting that prevents towns from expanding :)
04:07:40  <xiong> But I've run into local authorities who don't care for neglect and later arrogant invasions of big stations and big plans. So, now I've gone back to the local service, but on a scale calculated to please local authority, not stim the people.
04:08:28  <xiong> Chrill, I know about the setting but to me, anyway, it seems underhanded -- no challenge at all, no contest. Besides, towns sometimes do interesting things, that I might not have thought of alone.
04:09:25  <xiong> Type in point being strange bridges. Some are just dumb, others amusing. One town escaped jail with a long bridge. I gave it some new land but re-established the jail around it.
04:10:35  <xiong> I did turn off the ability of towns to build grade crossings across my tracks. That doesn't seem fair to the company. Although, in reality, such things are extremely contentious issues.
04:11:33  <xiong> I'm starting to think of towns as liabilities, though, rather than assets. Pax service does make early money but later, towns are just in the way, even if they're small.
04:12:09  <xiong> Chrill, I certainly do see the attraction of your approach.

09:17:36  <Alberth> good morning
09:20:36  <andythenorth> gud morning
09:25:31  <planetmaker> moin Terkhen
09:26:09  <planetmaker> <-- any opinion here?
09:26:30  <Rubidium> setting!
09:28:30  <planetmaker> :-)
09:29:09  * Terkhen prefers uniform trains
09:29:27  <Alberth> I like the mixed wagons, but I can imagine some people like to have neatly sorted wagons.
09:29:34  <Rubidium> or, in Haskell speak: _
09:29:50  <Rubidium> Alberth: how realistic are neatly sorted wagons?
09:29:50  <Terkhen> yes, I wouldn't mind having them mixed either
09:30:29  <Terkhen> but I prefer to know what is a train carrying at a glance
09:30:31  <Alberth> Rubidium: ask Terkhen, I don't need them
09:30:46  <Terkhen> they are probably not realistic at all
09:31:16  <Rubidium> even the ICs have different cars/liveries
09:31:55  <Rubidium> like, who in his right mind puts a yellow/black engine in front of white/red wagons? Why not use a red one like the Germans do
09:32:25  <Alberth> haha, 'random' order in the colours of the country :p
09:32:40  <Rubidium> if you're lucky they even "mix" 3 types of passenger EMUs into one train
09:33:28  <Alberth> now that's service, the passengers can choose the one they like best :)
09:34:42  <planetmaker> :-)
09:34:43  <Rubidium> yup
09:34:50  * Rubidium choses the one with WIFI :)
09:35:13  <planetmaker> DB doesn't have that really...
09:35:30  <Rubidium> planetmaker: but they have ovens in some trains

12:53:48  <Ammler> planetmaker: they host the package self?
12:53:59  <planetmaker> yes
12:54:03  <Ammler> any link?
12:54:39  <planetmaker> Yexo removed those. They had an integrated download: openttd + base sets + newgrfs
12:54:44  <planetmaker> I didn't save a link
12:56:20  <Ammler> I am quite sure, we never allowed someone to redistribute, as we wouldn't be allowed to give such permission anyway :-)
12:56:41  <planetmaker> exactly
12:58:56  <Ammler> oh, you already reported it that way :-P
12:58:59  <Eddi|zuHause> has anyone looked into whether the grf-pack should be downloadable via the installer, like ogfx?
12:59:39  <Ammler> I guess, it can't be officially supported...
12:59:53  <Ammler> it is quite greyish areay
13:00:36  <Ammler> but we have autodonwload permission for around 90% of the grfs
13:01:10  <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: who cares about the grf-pack? it only contains proprietary crap :p

13:02:36  <Ammler> davis: looks like the cz tunnels?
13:02:56  <frosch123> looks like a screenshot from eddi

13:04:20  <davis> "0 - CSD rails (default)
13:04:20  <davis> 1 - original rails"
13:04:30  <davis> as soon as I hit original rails , the tunnels switch back to default aswell
13:04:45  <Ammler> obviously :-)

13:19:07  <AveiMil> If the latter is true each "coal" on the ship is priced differently, since the coal loaded at 99->100% will have spent less time "travelling"
13:19:42  <Eddi|zuHause> starts upon leaving the station
13:20:29  <AveiMil> ok thanks
13:25:41  <AveiMil> there should be a "far end"/near end order for road veihcles
13:25:59  <AveiMil> my trucks starts to load as they etner the first loading station, instead of the last one
13:26:05  <AveiMil> blocking the trucks behind
13:31:36  <Eddi|zuHause> trucks go to the far end, except if they are blocked by another truck
13:33:46  <AveiMil> yeah, the far end of THAT platform
13:33:55  <AveiMil> if you build 3 lorry stations after one another
13:34:07  <AveiMil> the first truck will stop at the far end of the 1st lorry station
13:35:12  <AveiMil> even those the 3 lorry station is one collected station
13:35:16  <AveiMil> even though*
13:35:51  <Alberth> 2nd station not a busstop by accident?
13:36:09  <Eddi|zuHause> the truck stations must be directly adjacent
13:36:14  <Eddi|zuHause> otherwise it doesn't work
13:36:51  <AveiMil> not a bus station by acceident, and they are one tile after the other
13:37:37  <AveiMil> |12||12||12| <- like that, 1 = near end, 2 = far end, truck arrives and stops to load at the first '2' spot
13:37:49  <AveiMil> when it should enter and stop at the third '2' spot
13:37:52  <Alberth> we need a picture and/or save game then

14:38:18  <Rubidium> no
14:38:30  <Rubidium> it's rather a bug fix
14:38:57  <Eddi|zuHause> i think it's a really important feature...
14:39:13  <Rubidium> *no*, it's a bug *fix*
14:39:49  <Eddi|zuHause> how can you fix something that was not meant to work before? :p
14:40:30  <Rubidium> because it might have actually worked in the past
14:41:15  <Rubidium> before OpenTTD's string subsystem got rewritten
14:41:30  <Eddi|zuHause> er... ;)
14:41:47  <Eddi|zuHause> that was like in 0.3-ish? ;)
14:42:24  <Rubidium> yes

14:42:40  <Rubidium> that's in the comments of OpenTTD
14:43:09  <Rubidium> but all stringcodes in OpenTTD are in the 0xE000 range
14:44:05  <peter1138> heh
14:44:14  <peter1138> maybe i should've updated that lot...
14:44:56  <Rubidium> in 0.4: // 0x9D is used for the pseudo command SETCASE
14:45:22  <Rubidium> which are (somewhat) in the stringcodes' reserved ranges
14:46:36  <Eddi|zuHause> but... in 0.3-ish there wasn't really a lot of newgrf support...
14:47:00  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: actually, in the 0.4 branch cases would probably have worked

14:52:37  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause: Feature: [string system] Support cases.
14:52:38  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause:   - Cases are used to change a string, such as Coal Mine, depending on the surrounding context.
14:52:39  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause:   - Cases are defined like "STR_4802_COAL_MINE.ack  :Coala Mina"
14:52:40  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause:   - All cases need to be listed on the top of the file like this "##case ack"

14:55:41  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause: Fix: [strgen] Misc updates to the string system.
14:55:42  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause:   - Renamed the plural command to "P" instead of "PLURAL". Now write something like this to append an s on plural: {P "" s}. (You can optionally still add an argument index to explicitly specifiy which number that's used)
14:55:43  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause:   - Removed the pluralized cargo strings from the string files. The new method is to use the plural specifier {P}
14:55:44  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause:   - Added support for genders. First add "##gender der das die" on top, then use {G=der} on a cargoname/industry to set the gender, and to switch between genders do something like {G neu neu neue} {STRING}
14:55:45  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause: (...)

15:59:06  <Eddi|zuHause> IR wagons had power outlets in the toilet, but it didn't have enough power to load the laptop i had back then...
15:59:12  <Zuu> yea, when I as a kid commuted by train to school there was only a few sockets in each train car which some people maybe used to charge their phone but not really a lot as the cell phones back then lasted for a week. :-)

16:14:21  <Zuu> My guess is that Roadrunner uses similar or the same ideas as PathZilla. Namely to find out a way to connect all towns using not too many connections but neither too few.
16:14:59  <Zuu> After having constructed this in-memory map, it builds the connections when there is a demand to transport something on the road link.
16:16:25  <Zuu> There awas once an air-only AI that contained a solver for the inverse travel salesmen problem to construct a set of orders visiting all airports in the order that creates the longest route.

16:35:51  <AveiMil> The AI's aren't really worth much in terms of competition, they're all really bad in that regard. All they do is clutter up the map. But then again that's expected of AI's, near impossible to make great AI's for such complex games. OpenTTD should allow for giving AI's an advantage over human players, like say everything is 50% the cost.
16:36:24  <AveiMil> It's the only reason Civilization 4 is really fun to play versus the computer, because at Immortal difficulty they get a lot of advantages over the human player.
16:37:34  <Samu> hmm, now that you talk about AI's advantage
16:37:56  <Samu> is it possible for AI's to misbehave?
16:38:03  <SmatZ> misbehave?
16:38:03  <Samu> like
16:38:09  <AveiMil> sabotage?
16:38:12  <Samu> create a train to
16:38:12  *** nicfer [~nicfer@] has joined #openttd
16:38:15  <Eddi|zuHause> AIs can't cheat.
16:38:17  <Samu> sabotage human road vehicles
16:38:23  <SmatZ> it's possible
16:38:25  <Samu> to crash on them
16:38:27  <Samu> wow
16:38:29  <SmatZ> AIs can do the same people can
16:38:30  <AveiMil> Probably possible, but doubt any of these AI can.
16:38:43  <Terkhen> AveiMil: IIRC not giving AIs any advantages was one of the design goals of the NoAI framework
16:38:45  <AveiMil> It's probably very hard to create an AI that do that.
16:38:47  <Eddi|zuHause> not deliberately.
16:39:00  <Samu> or tell the town to reconstruct roads?
16:39:16  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, they can do that.
16:39:16  <Samu> that sounds very interesting if it's possible
16:39:23  <nicfer> the old AI was able to terraform without costs
16:39:30  <AveiMil> NoAI framework?
16:39:43  <nicfer> does NoAI allow the same?
16:39:55  <Terkhen> nicfer: no
16:40:35  <Samu> can the AI detect where the Human player is building and do those things that lamers do by blocking construction?
16:40:59  <SmatZ> no
16:41:13  <SmatZ> people can't watch other players neither
16:41:30  <SmatZ> AI know nothing about other companies
16:41:32  <Samu> rondje can detect routes already done by other players
16:41:53  <SmatZ> that's something different
16:41:58  <SmatZ> than you asked
16:42:22  <Terkhen> AIs can inspect the map as much as they want, but they cannot detect when someone else is building
16:43:07  <Samu> hmm interesting
16:44:29  <Samu> can it check the map from 'memory'? I mean, can it memorize the map the way it was some days ago to detect any changes?
16:45:40  <Samu> then the AI would act based on those differences
16:46:03  <Eddi|zuHause> theoretically yes, but only in limited ways.
16:46:04  <Samu> like blocking or doing something evil
16:46:38  <Eddi|zuHause> you just have not enough opcodes to constantly monitor differences in every part of the map
16:50:09  <Samu> I think I'm cancelling this game, it's way too slow for my computer
16:51:05  <Samu> takes about 10 seconds to advance 1 day in fast forward
16:51:26  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, tune down the number of opcodes AIs can do.

16:59:41  *** fjb [] has joined #openttd
17:00:28  <Eddi|zuHause> the end date _never_ changed in the history of TTD. because it's hard-coded into the newspaper.
17:00:56  <Eddi|zuHause> (in TTO it was 2030, though)
17:01:15  <SmatZ> the newspaper's date is 31.12.2050

18:06:55  <Terkhen> no

18:08:49  <Samu> aha, problem solved, I had the game installed on a usb drive
18:08:52  <Samu> running ttd
18:09:10  <AveiMil> man, that's so annoying
18:09:32  <AveiMil> there's tree's EVERYWHERE, so i build a road straight through it and town rating turns to appalling
18:09:36  <AveiMil> and I can't build a station

18:09:57  <AveiMil> yeah, a workaround

18:54:23  <Rubidium> Hirundo: huh? Everything that happens after loading the savegame should be as it was, just at another time
18:54:48  *** Chillosophy [] has joined #openttd
18:55:27  <Alberth> andythenorth: it is a great set, I enjoy playing with it. Very nice industry graphics, a bit static, but very nice nonetheless.
18:55:45  <Samu> i just had an idea for non-dedicated servers
18:55:47  <andythenorth> static?  as in, awaiting animation?
18:55:53  <Alberth> yeah
18:55:58  <Hirundo> afterload checks 'if (visible && !should_be_visible)' (for entry), but what about the other way around
18:56:10  <Alberth> didn't try 0.5.3 yet
18:57:04  <Alberth> is there something more specific you want to know?
18:57:40  <Rubidium> Hirundo: the other case, !visible && should_be_visible doesn't matter as it would be made unvisible a (few) tick(s) later
18:57:50  <Rubidium> after all, it's still entering the tunnel, isn't it?
18:57:57  <andythenorth> Alberth: there's a lot left to do, trying to figure out priorities
18:58:46  <Alberth> simpler game play would be more important than moving industries imho
18:58:58  <Hirundo> Except, if the train does not have any wagons, is stopped and you reverse it in exactly the right frame
18:59:09  <Alberth> s/moving/animated/
19:00:01  <Hirundo> I guess, no one will ever trigger that (if it actually works), though
19:00:21  <Rubidium> Hirundo: please make a testcase for that, so I can confirm a possible fix for it works
19:00:36  <Samu> I'd like to share something but I see you're busy
19:00:57  <Alberth> andythenorth: and the silently dropping of the last few tonnes make playing the set with trucks less enjoyable
19:01:02  <andythenorth> oh yes
19:01:04  <andythenorth> that bug :P
19:01:14  <Hirundo> Rubidium: I'll look at it tomorrow
19:02:13  <andythenorth> Alberth: so simpler game play => FIRS Basic needed?
19:02:34  <Alberth> seems like a wise move to me
19:03:19  <Samu> I have some ideas to provide game continuity for non-dedicated servers whenever the host leaves.
19:03:23  <Alberth> if the set is stable enough to do that
19:04:05  <Samu> another player would take place as host automatically, the remaining players would join that new host
19:04:36  <Alberth> right, let's all use the guy with a slow internet connection :p
19:04:38  <Samu> the server would only close if no one else could be the host
19:05:22  <Alberth> also, different machines may have different ideas whether the host is down, and/or who to move to
19:05:25  <Samu> there could be a verification check for every player when that player first joins the server
19:05:44  <Samu> to see if that player can be a future host if needed
19:05:44  <b_jonas> and then the game would be split to two halves, with some players connected to one half, the other to the other half, and can't be joined again
19:06:17  <b_jonas> if some players could still access the old server I mean\
19:07:04  <Alberth> Samu: in a network, everybody has a different idea of what is happening
19:08:07  <Samu> wish I could explain myself better
19:08:13  <Alberth> you could make a central point to synchronize those views, but you'd do that at a host, which is down (at least for some of the players)
19:08:47  <Samu> i'm not really savy in these things but I try to give some ideas :)
19:09:22  <Samu> so let's take the example of bittorrent
19:09:28  <Alberth> neither am I, but I have done a few courses network thingies, and these kind of things are HARD
19:10:13  <Alberth> eg every machine in a MP is at a different point in the game
19:10:23  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: rubidium * r21177 /trunk/src/ (language.h strings.cpp): -Codechange: change UniqueLanguageFile into GetLanguage
19:10:52  <Alberth> eg due to network delays
19:11:06  <Samu> ah, the so-called 'latency'
19:12:28  <b_jonas> couldn't users manage this by hand? like, if the server goes down, they figure out what's happened, start a new server, and load the latest savegame?
19:12:37  <b_jonas> that has less potential for mistakes than an automatic system
19:13:37  <Samu> an autosave feature for when the server closes for all clients?
19:14:19  <b_jonas> can't they save manually?
19:14:35  <Alberth> Samu: how do you decide "all clients?"
19:15:03  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: rubidium * r21178 /trunk/src/ (newgrf.cpp newgrf_text.cpp newgrf_text.h): -Codechange: pass the language_id to TranslateTTDPatchCodes as well
19:15:11  <b_jonas> Alberth: no, he means, any client, when the connection is broken, autosaves the game to a file locally
19:15:21  <Samu> I think a client is someone that joins a server, not the one that created the server game
19:15:38  <AveiMil> Did original TTD have multiplayer?
19:15:47  <Samu> yes, up to 4 I think
19:15:51  <Alberth> AIs :)
19:15:54  <b_jonas> Alberth: you mean yuo gave courses on network things?
19:16:17  <b_jonas> AveiMil: ais only. the network one is completely broken.
19:16:51  <AveiMil> my friend claimed we played it MP 15 years ago, but I can't remember
19:16:57  <Eddi|zuHause> TTO had 2-player mode over serial cable
19:17:20  <Eddi|zuHause> and possibly modem
19:17:48  <Alberth> b_jonas: no, but I followed a few, and implemented a protocol to make synchronous communication between processes.

19:19:16  <Samu> I have a question about those dedicated servers
19:19:28  <Samu> some servers don't pause the game when a player joins
19:19:35  <Samu> yet the game doesn't desync
19:20:05  <Alberth> does it?   I didn't know
19:20:09  <Samu> couldn't you base non-dedicated server continuity from there?
19:20:52  *** a1270 [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
19:20:53  <Rubidium> Q: how often do server owners ask about how to port forward stuff?
19:21:07  <planetmaker> Samu: if the server doesn't pause you just have to have a faster client...
19:21:11  <Rubidium> Q: do you think OpenTTD players actually care to get interested into port forwarding stuff?
19:21:43  <Rubidium> Q: how would the other clients communicate with eachother when they can't talk to eachother because the clients haven't set up port forwarding?
19:21:51  <planetmaker> A: 0.8 / actual server
19:21:53  <Samu> no, that doesn't seem to matter if the game checks beforehand who can be eligible to host
19:21:55  <planetmaker> A: no
19:22:03  <Samu> like a test
19:22:11  <Rubidium> Q: how would clients communicate with eachother when a few have IPv4 only, and a few IPv6 only and the server both?
19:22:34  <andythenorth> hmm
19:22:35  <Samu> I have no idea
19:22:49  <andythenorth> the only doubt I have about FIRS industry stability is the stupid forge / blacksmith
19:23:15  <Rubidium> in short: way too much work for way too little benefit
19:23:36  <Rubidium> or, in other words: I'm not going to develop or support it
19:24:38  <Samu> hmm *sad*
19:28:10  <Samu> a bit less elegant idea is to autosave upon server closure and have someone re-host by loading the savegame, but I see this would be problematic for 56k hosts
19:29:32  <Samu> yeah, :(
19:30:17  <Samu> transferring server status to a suitable client looks easy on paper
19:30:21  <Samu> sorry
19:30:40  <planetmaker> Samu: only on the very first thought
19:32:52  <Samu> do you know how some games work?
19:33:10  <Samu> when a player creates a server, it is actually not 'creating it'
19:33:24  <Samu> it's telling the masterserver to host for him
19:33:34  * Alberth knows how a few board games work
19:33:39  <Samu> the masterserver is the host, he becomes a client
19:33:42  <Samu> :p
19:33:55  <Samu> ok sorry
19:34:31  <Alberth> yeah, there are a lot of different ways to organize multi-player internet games
19:35:08  <Alberth> what is feasible depends on allowable network latency, bandwidth, and probably server ownership
19:36:14  <Samu> warcraft 3 has 2 methods for hosting games, mind if I talk about it?
19:36:35  <TrueBrain> I hate games where the hosting is not really done by the 'host'. In result, your lag is always the time it takes you to reach the 'nearest' server the company created (or published) the game from is. If you host the game yourself, you and your (close-by) friends at least can enjoy lag-free games .. (/me looks at CoD)
19:36:50  <Alberth> what's the point of that discussion, I am not very interested in how warcraft does networking
19:37:17  <Alberth> evenink TrueBrain!

19:38:14  <TrueBrain> yeah ...
19:38:32  <TrueBrain> and of course it solves a tons of problems if the dedicated server is non-existant, as nobody can hack the CDkey check away
19:38:57  <TrueBrain> but saving your games in the cloud (Assassins Creed 2) is just one step too far :(
19:39:18  <TrueBrain> I tell you, in a year or 2, you don't buy games anymore .. you stream them directly from some cloud

19:44:38  * Rubidium wonders whether TrueBrain has been paying 250 euros a month the last few years, or is that what you have just a mere 100 Mbps?

19:45:54  <TrueBrain> (works for everything)
19:46:08  <AveiMil> don't see any display
19:46:18  <TrueBrain> if you build something with shift pressed, it gives you how much it would cost
19:46:23  <TrueBrain> (estimate in some cases)
19:46:39  <AveiMil> ah like that
19:46:53  * TrueBrain is still sad the patch never got accepted which gave a hover displaying that info :))
19:46:56  <AveiMil> shoulda used that before I planted down a 100K 21 tile road tunnel :P
19:47:12  <TrueBrain> yup :)
19:48:21  <Samu> Tunnels should have a max length, you don't really build a tunnel across the whole Earth either
19:48:23  <Samu> hehe

20:15:33  <AveiMil> How much money do you usually have by 1970 playing normal OpenTTD?
20:15:35  <Alberth> Samu: it helps if you are aware of current state of the art. It helps even more if you actually do something with your ideas instead of just spreading them on the channel into oblivion
20:16:06  <Yrol> AveiMil, that depends on when you start.
20:16:12  <Alberth> no idea, I tend to have a positive amount before 1960, after that money is irrelevant
20:16:22  <planetmaker> ^^
20:17:01  <Samu> i can't code, I tried building some grf and nfo some months ago and I never figured it out
20:17:07  <AveiMil> ah
20:17:12  <AveiMil> definetly not irrelevant anymore :)
20:17:41  <Yrol> Alberth, indeed, you could aswell say there is a cheat built-in or so

20:18:15  <AveiMil> haha

22:10:02  <__ln__> I was wondering in my mind the other day whether all foreign languages should be taught first using phonemic transcription and not regular letters

22:10:25  <planetmaker> what purpose would it serve, __ln__ ?
22:10:54  <xiong> __ln__, All languages should be written in IPA. That's obvious.
22:11:21  <SmatZ> xiong: how many letters does IPA have?
22:11:35  <AveiMil> planetmaker, default Road Vehicle properties, where can I find them?
22:11:42  <AveiMil> <- can't make much sense of the info there
22:12:03  <xiong> ...except for the undeniable superiority of /hanzi/, in which *meaning* is represented, rather than mere sound; and people who speak ten different languages can comprehend.
22:12:03  <AveiMil> I found all the properties in
22:12:06  <Terkhen> hmmm... why mountainous map generation never uses the last height level?
22:12:09  <AveiMil> but where can I view their default values?
22:12:31  <__ln__> planetmaker: Because there is always a number of people who do not grasp the pronunciation rules properly.  For example in Spanish, 'h' is not pronounced at all, but certain people will pronounce it nonetheless because they are influenced by how it is written.
22:12:42  <xiong> SmatZ, I have no idea. About 100, I'd guess, if you refer only to primitives. They combine.
22:13:22  <Terkhen> AveiMil:
22:13:30  <planetmaker> __ln__: but how does first introducing the phonetic alphabet or way help with that?
22:13:51  <xiong> Only if you think sound is more important than meaning.
22:13:52  <planetmaker> AveiMil: as such the same place as before... you should really bookmark that
22:14:07  <SmatZ> xiong: interesting
22:14:08  <Terkhen> __ln__ has a point; that's one of my biggest problems with english
22:14:38  <__ln__> planetmaker: That way they'd learn how to speak first, and only later confuse themselves with rules of spelling.
22:14:54  <planetmaker> It's just a matter of where you start, I think
22:15:00  <AveiMil> mindfart!
22:15:05  <AveiMil> I had that bookmarked
22:15:17  <Terkhen> in fact, my pronunciation is far worse when I'm reading
22:15:22  <planetmaker> and yes, sure, getting the pronounciation of certain letter combinations right... is not always easy
22:15:24  <xiong> Not only Chinese people; but Koreans and Japanese can read at least a subset of /hanzi/. You only need about 5000 characters to read a daily newspaper. Most educated people are not familiar with much more than 10K.
22:15:47  <planetmaker> ask any random German to pronounce the English "th" and you'll surely end up with the English equivalent of either "z" or "s"
22:15:57  <b_jonas> or "f" or "v"
22:16:04  <b_jonas> or "t" or "d"
22:16:47  <xiong> ... and if that sounds like a lot compared to 26 letters (for some value of 26), then remark that none of those letters mean anything and you need to learn how to *combine* them into words, each of which must be memorized individually -- spelling and meaning.
22:16:49  <__ln__> i zink so too
22:17:05  <planetmaker> though interestingly sometimes in Scotland I wondered... it nearly sounded to me like a German accent what was genuine Scottish accent ;-)
22:17:13  <SmatZ> :)
22:18:19  *** Fast2 [] has joined #openttd
22:18:27  <xiong> Compare /hanzi/, which is written with only about 8 basic strokes (for some value of 8, depending on pedant) from which you construct your characters. And don't forget that all but the simplest characters are combinations of the simpler ones.
22:20:23  <__ln__> There are also people (even smart people) who in their ignorance think that this whole concept of phonemes and phones and such is something philosophical, metaphysical, while the written text is what's concrete.
22:20:35  <xiong> When CJK people, here in US, go to a restaurant (unless they are all, including the waiter, from the same town), they will speak English, because that is common to all; and the waiter will leave a pad of paper on the table. The guests will write their orders on the pad themselves, in /hanzi/; because that is common to them all.
22:22:05  <xiong> This practice is not universal, of course -- nothing is -- but it is done; and shows the clear advantage of symbols that encode meaning rather than sound.

22:23:02  <Eddi|zuHause> i think the worse problem than mispronunciation is actually misemphasise...
22:23:08  <xiong> What you may find more astonishing is that I have seen Chinese people, both native to the same town, speaking the exact same dialect of the same language, unable to be sure of each others' meanings, even face-to-face.
22:23:24  <SmatZ> interesting
22:23:37  <Eddi|zuHause> if you put the emphasise in the wrong place, people get _really_ difficult to understand
22:23:58  <xiong> That is because so many Chinese languages abound in homonyms. This is the basis for what Westerners call "crosstalk", which would be extremely funny if all the jokes were not 150 years old.
22:24:04  *** avdg [] has joined #openttd
22:24:38  <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: except if the speaker has the same native language as you do, then it's understandable but hurts the brain.
22:25:24  <b_jonas> meh, you people and all your hard to speak languages
22:25:36  <xiong> So, I have seen people standing on the sidewalk, in the middle of a verbal convo, sketch characters on the palm of the left hand with the forefinger of the right. It happens very quickly and to understand it, you must know the context of the convo and the correct stroke order of the character. But there it is.
22:26:02  <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: but indeed misplacing the stressed syllable in a word is an easy way to distract people.
22:26:11  <planetmaker> __ln__: it's really hard to intentionally mis-stress your mother tongue
22:27:06  <__ln__> true
22:27:55  <Eddi|zuHause> what's evil is using greek-derived words. then people will interpret your mis-emphasise of them as being an uneducated fool...

22:49:56  <SmatZ> I live in the centre of CZ, not on the czech/moravia border :)
22:49:57  <planetmaker> hu?
22:50:00  <planetmaker> *something*
22:50:02  <planetmaker> hu?
22:50:04  <SmatZ> :-D
22:50:06  <planetmaker> third try also failed
22:50:07  <Eddi|zuHause> around 120 years ago, Mr. Duden was a school teacher, and in his (local) school he hat pupils which spoke SEVEN different dialects.
22:50:12  <planetmaker> and he left quite frurstated
22:50:15  <SmatZ> :-D
22:50:17  <planetmaker> He obviously spoke German ;-)
22:50:28  <planetmaker> But I didn't understand a single sylable.
22:50:33  <planetmaker> I guess he was Saxonian
22:50:40  <b_jonas> or Dutch?
22:50:53  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: in Thuringia, you sometimes have two neighbouring villages.
22:50:54  <b_jonas> or do native Germans understand that?
22:51:04  <planetmaker> Weeks later - I pondered a lot about what that was about - I guess he asked me for the next telphone...
22:51:05  <Eddi|zuHause> and inhabitants can't understand each other
22:51:11  <planetmaker> it was just around the corner.
22:51:12  * avdg is still missing the 'localized' streets in his and other towns in his country
22:51:20  <SmatZ> sometimes, it's not only about dialects, but also about different words for something
22:51:27  <planetmaker> b_jonas: I can tell clearly the difference.
22:51:38  <planetmaker> I understand 25%
22:51:47  <planetmaker> roughly. Depends on context etc pp
22:51:54  <avdg> smatz: thats what we call dialects ;-)
22:52:06  <SmatZ> people speaking hantec (moravian dialect) can say a sentence, without me understanding a word
22:52:08  <planetmaker> yeah...
22:52:15  <Eddi|zuHause> b_jonas: depends on if they actually try to make themselves understood
22:52:28  <SmatZ> avdg: ok :) I thought dialects are mostly about different pronounciation :)
22:52:33  <SmatZ> sorry
22:52:40  <planetmaker> let me look through my bookmarks. There's an interesting series of studies by the university of Regensburg or so... on German dialects
22:52:42  <b_jonas> sure, and technical contexts like computers or mathematics are easier to understand in French or English,
22:52:45  <avdg> np, the meaning can be wide
22:52:52  <Eddi|zuHause> b_jonas: if you walk past a group of swiss guys talking their native valley-dialect, you have _no_ chance to understand anything...
22:53:23  <b_jonas> mathematical texts in fact use a very small vocabulary with every composed word mirror translated to all langauges, which makes reading foreign language mathematical texts easy
22:53:25  <planetmaker> found something else:
22:53:38  <b_jonas> Eddi|zuHause: right
22:54:53  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: it wants me to install quicktime...
22:55:27  <planetmaker> <-- I had been looking for this atlas of the German language
22:55:49  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: yes... it's audio. obviously in quicktime. bad luck for you then ;-) Really worth it, though
22:55:59  <avdg> hmmm, they are missing many dialects for my language -_
22:56:11  *** frosch123 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
22:56:34  <avdg> they even missed my city
22:57:05  <Rubidium> cool, frosch123's client's disconnect reached the IRC server before his parting message. So he's getting even quicker lately :)
22:57:57  <SmatZ> :-) I thought the very same :)
22:58:08  <SmatZ> also, I thought you are already sleeping, Rubidium ;)
22:58:15  <b_jonas> planetmaker: is that like (from strangemaps)?
22:58:59  <Rubidium> SmatZ: nah, just watching some movie or something
22:59:05  <planetmaker> b_jonas: similar
22:59:26  <planetmaker> the representation is IMHO better than the one on the map you link

23:00:13  <planetmaker> as the dot density gives you also gradients and a visual clue to the percentage and also the 'minority' opinions in regions
23:00:56  <Samu> I spotted more differences
23:01:10  <Samu> I can refit aircraft to all cargo except oil
23:01:18  <Samu> and mail
23:01:29  *** X-2 [] has joined #openttd
23:02:57  <Eddi|zuHause> yes.
23:03:04  <Eddi|zuHause> one of the known "fixes" ;)
23:03:23  <b_jonas> makes sense because there aren't separate oil planes in the set
23:03:41  <b_jonas> so if someone wants to waste their money on oil planes, let them do it
23:04:07  <b_jonas> and a plane of all mail totally makes sense to me
23:04:16  <b_jonas> it can even earn a lot
23:04:26  <Rubidium> oh, so because *someone* might want to do something it must be enabled?
23:04:30  <Rubidium> by default?
23:04:50  <Samu> if it is a clone
23:05:08  <Samu> first feature I see removed
23:05:16  <Samu> so far I've seen additions
23:05:36  <Rubidium> then you've missed quite a lot of the crash the AI features
23:05:57  <Rubidium> or the leave the level crossing light turned on feature
23:06:21  <Samu> bug fixes?
23:06:24  <Eddi|zuHause> Samu: it's one of the remnants from "let people play the original game" policy that was in effect for a long time
23:06:33  <avdg> bugs are also features at some point ;-)
23:06:37  <Rubidium> or the get easy money by building long tunnel feature
23:06:56  * avdg likes ^
23:06:59  <Samu> oh, fixing bugs is common sense
23:07:14  <Samu> at least most believe so
23:07:42  <b_jonas> like fixing the water build cheat bug, sure
23:08:08  <Samu> i don't know the cheats
23:08:27  <Samu> when I played ttd I didn't know there was cheats
23:08:30  <Rubidium> Samu: point is, aircraft transporting oil was reported as a bug. Ergo, it's a fixed bug
23:08:36  <SmatZ> water build cheat bug?
23:08:37  <b_jonas> maybe there should be an easily reachable big switch in the gui that sets the options to full compatibility versus more fun
23:09:03  <SmatZ> [00:08:41] <Rubidium> Samu: point is, aircraft transporting oil was reported as a bug. Ergo, it's a fixed bug <== I really can't say I like that change :p
23:09:14  <Samu> I can't refit aircraft to oil in ttd either
23:09:18  <SmatZ> that should be done by a newgrf :p
23:09:22  *** Lakie` [~Lakie@] has quit [Quit: Sleep.]
23:09:35  <Samu> i said I can refit aircraft to everything except oil and mail
23:09:38  <SmatZ> (I know it wasn't possible at that time)
23:09:53  <Rubidium> SmatZ: build depot, destroy depot -> cheap water clearing; build an ownership thingy and it doesn't flood
23:10:16  <b_jonas> SmatZ: in ttd, when you destroy a ship depot or a dock, you get soon to be flooded dry squares instead of water. this allows you to raise water much more cheaply.
23:12:28  <Samu> refiting cargo ship is exactly equal to ttd
23:12:32  <SmatZ> Rubidium: oh that
23:12:43  <SmatZ> I never used that :)
23:13:11  <__ln__> err wtf, i just accidentally found a key shortcut to play the clips backwards in quicktime.
23:13:11  <b_jonas> I used it a lot
23:13:19  <SmatZ> :)
23:13:21  <b_jonas> even though I consider it a cheat
23:13:32  <b_jonas> but I cheated filthily by blocking AIs too
23:13:50  <b_jonas> okay, I still do that
23:13:55  <SmatZ> __ln__: interesting, with all those p-frames
23:14:01  <SmatZ> :P
23:15:10  <Samu> ttd version i have is 2.01.119
23:15:35  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: this is probably the dialect-divide that causes the most trouble:
23:15:43  <Samu> maybe different version of ttd use different refits
23:16:33  <Eddi|zuHause> the aircraft refit things is a game-rebalancing feature
23:16:35  <planetmaker> that's confusing indeed
23:17:36  <b_jonas> Eddi|zuHause: is it?
23:18:06  <Eddi|zuHause> b_jonas: yes, aircraft seemed to be overpowered.
23:18:33  <Samu> even at 1/4 of normal cargo?
23:18:33  <b_jonas> you don't enable the fast aircrafts option, do you?
23:19:26  <Samu> nop
23:19:36  <andythenorth> good night
23:19:40  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't use aircraft usually.
23:19:41  *** andythenorth [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:19:43  <planetmaker> night andy
23:19:45  <planetmaker> :S
23:19:51  <Samu> hmm another little difference
23:20:11  <Samu> the capacity factor on refit include total units passenger + mail
23:20:19  <Samu> on ottd
23:20:24  <Samu> on ttd it's only passenger
23:21:06  <Samu> help me on my english
23:21:10  <Eddi|zuHause> that i know nothing of.
23:21:23  <Terkhen> good night
23:21:29  <Samu> ok an example, let me build an airport again, sec
23:22:30  <Samu> coleman count
23:22:41  <Samu> it's normal cargo is 65 + 8
23:22:56  <Samu> when refitting to goods, which is available on both ttd and ottd
23:23:13  <Samu> it becomes 32 crates of goods in ttd and 36 on ottd
23:23:30  <Samu> ttd = 65/2
23:23:39  <Samu> ottd = (65+8)/2
23:26:33  <Eddi|zuHause> you should put this stuff on a wiki page. "differences in TTD and OpenTTD"
23:26:46  <b_jonas> that's exactly what I thought
23:26:56  <b_jonas> then if someone wants to work on compatibility, he can do it
23:27:12  <Samu> well we were talking about planes being too good
23:27:31  <Samu> seems like ottd planes carry a bit more, heh
23:27:38  <__ln__> oh no, the discussion is drifting from phonetics towards some transportation game
23:29:33  <AveiMil> planetmaker, does FEAT_CARGOS contain all the cargo's for all climate sets??
23:29:58  <planetmaker> what is feat_cargos?
23:30:19  <AveiMil>
23:30:37  <AveiMil> item(FEAT_CARGOS, Oil, 3)               { property { penalty_lowerbound: 40; single_penalty_length: 255; pricefactor: 6192; } }
23:30:53  <AveiMil> <- I used that as a reference
23:31:10  <planetmaker> you'll have to use the cargo labels
23:31:14  <AveiMil> but I just wonder what the proper Id's are for the various sets as in those tables they have the same ids
23:31:33  <planetmaker> Oil as you quote certainly won't work
23:31:42  <AveiMil> it certainly does :)
23:31:52  <planetmaker> interesting
23:32:24  <AveiMil> the ones I've edited all worked when I used the ID's listed here:
23:32:26  <planetmaker> but I don't know. I've not yet used that feature
23:32:54  <AveiMil> <- are those the complete ID list?

23:40:44  <planetmaker> <-- AveiMil
23:41:32  <AveiMil> yeah I linked you that page further up
23:41:46  <avdg> lol @very old commit reference
23:41:53  <AveiMil> but the ID's for temparte/artic/tropic repeat
23:42:04  <AveiMil> so how do I know what ID is what beyond 'Valuables'?
23:43:03  <AveiMil> item(FEAT_CARGOS, Valuables, 10)   <- can you use the 'Name' instead of the 10 there?
23:45:06  <Yexo> no, you check in which climate you are to determine which cargos are in which slot
23:45:17  <Yexo> and even that isn't enough if you want it to work with industry grf sets
23:46:05  <AveiMil> so when I choose tropic it just replaces "Valuables" with diamonds
23:46:26  <AveiMil> so I onyl need to defeine 11 cargo types for all the default climate sets
23:47:37  <AveiMil> Valuabes = Gold = Diamonds = Plastic
23:47:49  <planetmaker> I take the diamond part there, please
23:48:21  <AveiMil> looks like that's how it works
23:48:31  <AveiMil> different names, same stats for each climate
23:48:45  <Samu> another difference :p
23:49:14  <Samu> i can't refit manley morell
