01:03:07  <krinn> the AI lib, not openttd rail pathfinder
01:06:19  <krinn> hmm ok too late, hope truebrain look at log :P

11:38:59  * MNIM slaps rane in the face.
11:39:23  <MNIM> I thought it was quite clear that you OSX is NOT supported by ottd.
11:39:46  <rane> oh? hasn't been clear at all

11:45:20  <Alberth> rane: there are a number of bugs in the OSX version that we cannot fix due to lack of an OSX developer
11:45:40  <rane> ok, that's unfortunate
11:46:00  <__ln__> however poor performance is not one of the known bugs.
11:46:56  <__ln__> if "performing quite poorly" means it's slow.

12:17:27  <Arafangion> Alberth: What's the most significant bug?
12:17:56  <planetmaker> crash. when using cmd+h
12:18:14  <planetmaker> might be when using fullscreen only
12:18:49  *** xiong [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:19:01  <planetmaker> and lack of support for the bootstrap which asks to grab base sets, if not found
12:19:03  <Arafangion> I assume pre-lion fullscreen, but curious.  Well, the user can simply avoid that command, surely?
12:19:15  <planetmaker> no. Lion full screen
12:19:25  <planetmaker> osx lion is... a problem
12:19:31  <Arafangion> Lion fullscreen is *useless* :(
12:19:59  <planetmaker> you do not want to forbid users the equivalent of alt+tab to cycle through applications?
12:20:19  <planetmaker> no, that's a bug, and it's not something you can say 'avoid please'
12:20:26  <Arafangion> planetmaker: I don't do that by using cmd+h, though - I use cmd+tab and cmd+tilde.
12:20:49  <planetmaker> I use neither. But that doesn't make it less serious
12:20:59  <Arafangion> True.
12:21:41  <planetmaker> the bootstrap with auto-install of base sets might be as much needed, though
12:21:53  <Eddi|zuHause> for "general browsing" i use konqueror with plugins and javascript disabled. only for pages which actually require flash i use firefox as alternative browser.
12:22:06  <Arafangion> Eddi|zuHause: I use chromium.
12:22:46  <Eddi|zuHause> not quite the point :)
12:22:53  <Arafangion> planetmaker: I wish I had a personal (as opposed to business) mac I could help contribute to openttd with. :(
12:23:09  <Arafangion> Eddi|zuHause: Well, it's webkit based, and works quite well with flash :)
12:23:56  <Eddi|zuHause> Arafangion: the point was to _disable_ flash, unless really necessary
12:24:15  <Arafangion> Eddi|zuHause: Fair enough.
12:24:24  <Arafangion> It's a buggy peice of crap.
12:24:33  <__ln__> unfortunately *owning* a mac is not quite enough for making useful contributions.
12:24:47  <Arafangion> __ln__: I'm also a dev.
12:24:56  <Arafangion> __ln__: But time's a premium. :(
12:26:12  <Arafangion> Unfortunately, dev'ing on an actual mac's the only practical way to do mac dev. :(
12:30:24  <planetmaker> yes. that's the bad thing. Though that's nearly generally true
12:30:53  <Alberth> preferably more than one, as what works on one may not work at another
12:31:04  <planetmaker> yes.
12:31:12  <Arafangion> What if you were to forget the mac UI, and provide it as an X11 app?
12:31:20  <Arafangion> I mean, you guys do your own UI anyway?
12:31:34  <planetmaker> SDL is buggy
12:31:45  <planetmaker> on osx
12:31:46  *** FLHerne [] has left #openttd []
12:32:06  <Arafangion> Bah, sucky either way, then?
12:32:53  <TinoDidriksen> I wish I had more time so I could make the Qt front-end...
12:32:54  <planetmaker> the osx gui doesn't quite suck. But mostly it misses adoption to the constant API changes
12:32:57  <Alberth> well, Apple did not approve the software, so don't expect it to run :p
12:33:34  <Arafangion> TinoDidriksen: Intruguing idea!  Wouldn't rendering performance then suck, though?
12:33:52  <Alberth> Qt is just another X11 frontend
12:33:53  * Arafangion uses OpenTTD on an Atom D525... It definetly takes it to its limits.
12:34:03  <TinoDidriksen> Arafangion, Qt QGraphicsView uses OpenGL
12:34:15  <Arafangion> TinoDidriksen: Hmm, nice.
12:35:02  <Alberth> not really, 3D technology is not designed to just push lots of pictures to the screen
12:35:30  <Arafangion> Alberth: No, but that's how it's used these days!?
12:36:07  <Alberth> Arafangion: ???
12:36:23  <Alberth> (don't understand the question)
12:36:36  *** lmergen [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:37:29  <Arafangion> Alberth: I meant, that none-the-less, OpenGL's tended to be used for graphics acceleration of 2D graphics, simply because there are very few other *portable* 2D graphics frameworks.
12:37:47  <Arafangion> Certainly none that are accelerated.
12:37:55  *** KritiK [] has joined #openttd
12:39:26  <Alberth> with OpenTTD, you can safely remove 'accelerated' :D     you need the CPU as well to render the display as I have heard.
12:40:19  <Arafangion> Alberth: Unfortunate. :)
12:48:54  *** |Jeroen| [] has quit [Quit: oO]
12:53:15  <Rubidium> Alberth: 8bpp palette animation is GPU accelerated on those GPUs that support it, i.e. low end and old GPUs
12:54:04  <Rubidium> and only on OSes that have a proper fallback when the hardware does not provide the feature
12:55:54  <Alberth> weren't the NewGRF call chains a problem in OpenGL ?
12:56:31  <Rubidium> no clue what the problems were
12:56:42  <Rubidium> it was merely slower for me
12:58:22  <frosch123> wasn't the problem that we could not quite well create texture atlases from the sprites?
13:07:00  <michi_cc> Limiting factor seems to be bandwidth to the video card. Texture atlases stored in card memory effectivly avoid that, but how to create an atlas if you have no clue at all about the access pattern?
13:07:24  *** fonsinchen [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
13:08:25  <michi_cc> And storing each and every sprite as a separate texture results in lots of overhead (switching textures is often not very fast).

13:31:17  <Arafangion> michi_cc: Could you mitigate that with display lists?
13:31:41  <Arafangion> michi_cc: Given that the sprites are very small.
13:31:51  <Arafangion> (ie, you could manually render them)
13:32:12  <michi_cc> I don't think one display list per sprite would do any good at all.
13:32:56  <Arafangion> How many sprites are we talking about?
13:33:15  <Arafangion> Just hundreds?
13:33:41  <michi_cc> NewGRFs can display any arbitrary sprite at any time, there is nothing you can group them by. There are things like spritesets, but nothing guarantees that it's the same set every time.
13:33:58  <Arafangion> Ah, that complicates it.
13:35:03  *** jazzyjaffa [] has joined #openttd
13:36:16  *** Snail_ [] has joined #openttd
13:37:09  <Rubidium> think more about thousands of sprites
13:37:26  <michi_cc> The baseset only is somewhere around 5000 sprites, and with NewGRFs that can be *a lot* more. The unfinished CETS is at *62000* right now.
13:37:49  <glx> including pseudosprites ?
13:37:54  <michi_cc> No :)

13:46:39  <planetmaker> michi_cc: it's rather 10k sprites for a base set
13:46:51  <planetmaker> it's along 1000 sprites for the rivers alone
13:47:35  <planetmaker> though not all 10k sprites are loaded concurrently
13:47:42  <planetmaker> but it's like 7k or so
13:47:48  <michi_cc> Drawing doesnt't care about total sprites though, only about sprites per climate.
13:47:52  <planetmaker> 5k in the base grf and 2k in the extra. maybe.
13:47:54  *** tokai|mdlx [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:49:47  *** Snail_ [] has joined #openttd
13:51:18  <V453000> 1000 sprites for rivers? o_O
13:51:23  <V453000> woah
13:51:56  *** Snail__ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:54:21  <andythenorth> hmm
13:54:27  <andythenorth> 37k lines code for BANDIT
13:54:37  <planetmaker> (4 sides + 4 corners + 4 corners) * 5 slopes * 2 for river mouths * 9 terrains
13:54:41  <planetmaker> = 1080 real sprites
13:54:49  <andythenorth> and what fun they were to draw too :P
13:54:54  <V453000> :D
13:55:51  <planetmaker> canals are only 1/5 of that on top
13:56:11  <planetmaker> oh. And I missed the water sprites
13:56:29  <planetmaker> with rocks on slopes. So... again some more. 4 * 16 random
13:56:43  *** Snail__ [] has joined #openttd
13:56:54  <planetmaker> so I guess we have 1.5k real sprites for waterfeatures in the extra grf

14:25:33  <drac_boy> hi
14:26:16  <drac_boy> any of you know if its possible to compile the source in some way to stop looking for other existing folders and mess up the newgrf+multiplayer settings in the process?
14:27:24  <planetmaker> my settings are never messed up by compilation
14:27:32  <planetmaker> and I didn't do anything fancy
14:27:49  <planetmaker> or anything special at all
14:28:25  *** tokai|mdlx [] has joined #openttd
14:28:44  <drac_boy> planetmaker well then why is it that as soon as I run 1.2.0-RC2 it messed up the two settings for 1.1.5 even although it was a complete different folder+cfg?
14:28:57  <Eddi|zuHause> well, my settings are "messed up" when switching between trunk an chillpp
14:29:26  <Eddi|zuHause> in this instance the "autosave interval" option, which contains the trunk-invalid values "weekly" and "daily"
14:29:38  *** Snail__ [] has joined #openttd
14:29:56  <Eddi|zuHause> and trunk has the bug that it doesn't reset the value to default (monthly), but to 0 (off)
14:30:57  <Eddi|zuHause> drac_boy: most likely you used a config that you didn't think you used
14:31:06  *** Snail_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

14:36:48  <drac_boy> eddi you mean the newer builds somehow are stopping looking in their own local folder first as they used to?

14:37:33  <Eddi|zuHause> "own folder" was never first. afair the order is "current working directory", "user directory", "binary directory"
14:37:53  <drac_boy> well..the first one...whatever term you want to define it as :)
14:38:25  <Eddi|zuHause> then maybe you didn't set the working directory properyl

14:39:44  <andythenorth>
14:40:03  <andythenorth> when I test my formula in excel it works
14:40:13  <andythenorth> but I'm coming out with ridiculously low T/E values
14:40:46  <Eddi|zuHause> checked integer vs. float math yet?
14:41:04  <andythenorth> no
14:41:06  <andythenorth> hmm
14:41:13  <andythenorth> also, the weights are insanely wrong there
14:41:17  <andythenorth> so that's probably the cause
14:41:25  <andythenorth> total_weight is much too high
14:41:28  <andythenorth> I'll fix that first :P
14:42:43  <Eddi|zuHause> my calculation looks like this: file.write('		tractive_effort_coefficient:    %s;\n'%('0' if traction_type in ["Wagon","Wagon/Narrow"] else '1.0*%s/%s/10'%(max_te,weight),))
14:43:06  <Eddi|zuHause> where max_te is in kN and weight is in t
14:44:43  <Eddi|zuHause> 1.0 is a magic constant to ensure float math, and 10 is earth's acceleration
14:44:51  <andythenorth> thanks
14:44:59  <andythenorth> I'll fix my weight problem first
14:45:00  <Eddi|zuHause> using 9.81 there caused wrong values
14:45:43  *** Snail_ [~jacopocol@] has joined #openttd
14:46:38  <andythenorth> hmm
14:46:47  <andythenorth> might be because weights are 1/4 in some places, not others
14:47:01  <Eddi|zuHause> nml handles that
14:47:21  <andythenorth> not inside my python though :P
14:47:34  <Eddi|zuHause> do yourself a favour and keep everything in "sane" units
14:48:52  <andythenorth> i.e. work only in t?
14:48:59  <andythenorth> then go to 1/4t only where needed?
14:49:00  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
14:49:11  <Eddi|zuHause> you don't need to go 1/4t anywhere

15:47:41  <Djohaal> wow, this palce is crowded compared to the simutrans IRC o.o
15:48:01  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: if you want rounding, you must do the / as the last operation
15:48:19  <Alberth> Djohaal: most people don't say anything at all :)
15:48:19  <Eddi|zuHause> so (10*te*weight)//255

16:01:04  *** Chris_Booth [] has joined #openttd
16:01:57  <Eddi|zuHause> i agree
16:02:17  <Eddi|zuHause> there's nothing preventing the game from looping over all articulated parts and summing up TE itself
16:02:32  <andythenorth> what about weight?
16:02:38  <Eddi|zuHause> same
16:02:45  <andythenorth> the issue I have is that I have to put all the weight onto the lead vehicle
16:02:50  <andythenorth> which results in insane TE
16:03:16  <andythenorth> then I have to account for refitting to variable numbers of trailers, which causes variable consist weight
16:03:31  <andythenorth> and I have to account for weight transfer from trailers to tractor unit
16:05:06  *** Rhamphoryncus [] has joined #openttd
16:05:28  <andythenorth> hmm
16:05:50  <andythenorth> wonder if some of my calculations are being shafted by non-floating maths in game
16:05:59  <Eddi|zuHause> well, if you do it like me, and count max_te in kN until the very end, at least the adjusting for different weight is trivial
16:07:01  * andythenorth reads code from Eddi|zuHause again
16:09:14  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: where is max_te defined / derived?
16:09:33  <Eddi|zuHause> it's taken directly from the tracking table
16:09:36  <andythenorth> oh
16:09:40  <andythenorth> so you know the TE values
16:09:44  <andythenorth> hmm
16:10:01  * andythenorth doesn't know them :P
16:10:25  <Eddi|zuHause> some entries in the tracking table are fixed numbers (from wikipedia), others are calculated ones (e.g. from MB's forum post)
16:10:30  <andythenorth> I just want to normalise the TE value by only using the weight of the lead vehicle
16:10:41  <Eddi|zuHause> others are just taking weight*acceleration
16:11:16  <andythenorth> TE is: 10 * coeff * weight ?
16:11:19  <andythenorth> according to nfo spec
16:11:50  <andythenorth> so if lead vehicle weight is 10 and total weight is 30
16:11:52  <Eddi|zuHause> so if you have 100t and 1.1m/s^2 acceleration, then you have 110kN te
16:12:18  <andythenorth> 10 * (coeff / 3) * weight should get me the correct result
16:12:38  <andythenorth> 3 being derived from "total weight / lead vehicle weight"
16:12:39  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: handle the two steps separately
16:13:29  <Eddi|zuHause> in the first step you calculate TE in kN of each individual vehicle (0 for wagons)
16:13:44  <Eddi|zuHause> in the second step, sum up all values from the articulated parts
16:14:05  <Eddi|zuHause> in the third step, calculate the coefficient from the total values
16:14:19  <Eddi|zuHause> do not try to merge these steps into one
16:14:22  <andythenorth> so I have to know TE?
16:14:37  <Eddi|zuHause> no, you can calculate TE by weight*acceleration
16:14:47  <andythenorth> acceleration is derived from?
16:14:59  <Eddi|zuHause> some meaningful default value
16:15:09  <Eddi|zuHause> "from 0 to 100 in x seconds"
16:15:22  <andythenorth> is it 0 for unpowered vehicles?
16:15:30  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
16:15:56  <Eddi|zuHause> i'd just throw some arbitrary value as acceleration, like 3, or 2.5
16:16:04  <Eddi|zuHause> m/s^2
16:16:30  <andythenorth> you know that default game uses ~3 for RVs?
16:16:37  <Eddi|zuHause> 1.1 is the value of some commuter trains from CETS
16:16:42  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't know that
16:16:58  <Eddi|zuHause> but it sounds like some roughly sensible guessed value
16:17:00  <andythenorth> weight * 3 will give you TE for the default RVs
16:17:04  <andythenorth> give or take some rounding
16:17:09  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
16:17:12  <Eddi|zuHause> sounds fine
16:17:21  <Eddi|zuHause> for rail vehicles it should be less
16:17:48  <andythenorth> let's see
16:18:18  <andythenorth> total TE is just "lead vehicle weight * 3" in that case
16:18:35  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
16:19:02  <andythenorth> and to express that as the coefficient?
16:19:24  <Eddi|zuHause> the formula i posted earlier
16:19:32  <Eddi|zuHause> 1.0*te*weight/10
16:19:42  <Eddi|zuHause> err
16:19:46  <Eddi|zuHause> /weight
16:20:24  <andythenorth> can't weight be resolved out?
16:20:49  <Eddi|zuHause> '1.0*%s/%s/10'%(max_te,weight)
16:20:57  <Eddi|zuHause> no
16:21:09  <andythenorth> if te = weight * 3?
16:21:12  <Eddi|zuHause> because here it's the total consist weight
16:21:21  <andythenorth> ah
16:23:39  <andythenorth> hmm
16:23:40  <andythenorth> w
16:23:51  <andythenorth> do I need some parentheses in my calculation?
16:24:22  <andythenorth>         adjusted_te_coefficient = 1.0 * total_te / total_weight / 10
16:24:36  <Eddi|zuHause> no
16:24:53  <Eddi|zuHause> as long as it's only * and /, it will be evaluated from left to right
16:25:04  * andythenorth failed that recent facebook test :P
16:25:18  <valhallasw> that's probably because that facebook test was wrong
16:25:32  <Eddi|zuHause> what facebook test?
16:26:02  <valhallasw> I think it was something like  'what does a/b*c evaluate to'
16:26:14  <valhallasw> but slightly more ambiguous
16:26:26  <andythenorth> 3 * 40 + 1 or something
16:26:27  <valhallasw> (I think there was an operator missing)
16:26:30  <andythenorth> anyway I got it wrong
16:26:39  <andythenorth> hmm
16:26:47  <andythenorth> ok, so all the values are the same as before
16:26:52  <andythenorth> which is reassuring
16:27:21  <valhallasw> anyway; adding parentheses to clarify meaning is always a good idea ;-)
16:27:40  <valhallasw> because you're screaming
16:27:52  <Eddi|zuHause> because you have bad grammar
16:28:06  <valhallasw> and because you're using memes incorrectly
16:29:06  <andythenorth> hmm
16:29:18  <andythenorth> so part of the problem is that my trucks are severely under-weight
16:30:19  <Eddi|zuHause> some articulated trucks rely on the weight of the load for proper TE
16:30:36  <andythenorth> indeed
16:30:43  <andythenorth> and of the trailer
16:30:48  <Eddi|zuHause> they can even lift an axle to increase it
16:30:50  <andythenorth> I need to write more code :P
16:31:41  <Eddi|zuHause> so lead_TE = 3*(lead_weight + 0.5*trailer_weight)
16:32:16  <Scuddles> what ridiculous vehicle does pj1k need next
16:33:27  <Eddi|zuHause> i never undertood why it's called pj1k when it's actually ukrs2

16:35:18  <Scuddles> I meant hipster instead of habit
16:35:27  <Scuddles> ukrs2 is sooo mainstream
16:35:39  <andythenorth> hmm
16:35:45  <Scuddles> no photogrey minus points
16:35:45  * andythenorth discovers some errors
16:36:34  <andythenorth> calculating weight as a function of length is maybe not that smart

16:36:49  <DorpsGek> Eddi|zuHause: 213.36
16:36:50  <andythenorth> especially when the length is deliberately set incorrectly
16:37:55  <Eddi|zuHause> you need to consider the additional weight of the engine
16:38:13  *** Mucht [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
16:39:19  <andythenorth> it might be easier to just manually set weights
16:39:37  <andythenorth> deriving everything can have unexpected consequences when you introduce cheating further up the chain :P
16:40:31  <andythenorth> I have to cheat vehicle length for articulated trucks

17:35:21  *** Guest6713 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:35:22  <Rubidium> instead of foo's single train that is 256 pixels long and thus aligns the rest at 256 pixels as well
17:35:26  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: then treat the alignment property also grf-local. "works" for the depot offset :)
17:35:43  <Rubidium> SETX?
17:36:11  <michi_cc> Aren't we stripping that out?
17:36:22  <Rubidium> michi_cc: no idea
17:36:36  <michi_cc> Or wasn't that for the vehicle list? I don't remember anymore.
17:36:38  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't see support for SETX in nml
17:37:43  <Eddi|zuHause> there was quite some controversy about SETX
17:38:37  <Alberth> setx is useless with variable sized fonts
17:40:16  <Eddi|zuHause> Alberth: the purchase sprites don't depend on font size (yet)
17:42:22  <Eddi|zuHause> btw, michi_cc: the new vehicle speed roundings seem fine. except for the higher speeds it's usually 1 too high (201, 331, etc.)
17:43:12  <michi_cc> Well, there's only so much you can do with rounding if you have a coarser unit in there.
17:43:15  <Eddi|zuHause> but i guess that's the effect of the kmh-ish->kmh conversion
17:44:50  <Eddi|zuHause> and the maintenance costs are broken, it lists them all as 0... not sure why
17:45:32  <Djohaal> aw how sad
17:45:37  <Djohaal> ECS farms don't have those huge cool fields :(
17:45:42  <andythenorth> SETX is bollocks
17:45:56  <andythenorth> it's 'the' reason OzTrans flounced off
17:46:04  <andythenorth> *among many
17:46:34  * andythenorth plays the one line python game:         self.truck_cab_length, self.truck_total_length = [int(i) for i in config.get(id, 'truck_length_cab_total').split('|')]
17:46:42  <andythenorth> :P
17:47:39  <Alberth> looks like russian roulette to me :)
17:48:45  <Eddi|zuHause> i would have used map...
17:49:05  <andythenorth> ?
17:49:28  <Eddi|zuHause> [f(x) for x in a] is the same as map(f, a)
17:50:56  <Eddi|zuHause> so "map(int, config.get().split())"
17:51:57  <Eddi|zuHause> not really much of a difference
17:52:03  <Eddi|zuHause> just a matter of habit, i guess
17:53:51  <Alberth> one that is difficult to generalize to more complicated cases :)
17:54:21  <Eddi|zuHause> that's what lambdas are for :=
17:55:04  * andythenorth sees
17:55:27  <andythenorth> I could never figure map, but for some reasons [f(x) for x in a] is blindingly obvious to me
17:55:33  <andythenorth> brains are odd

19:12:50  <Chris_Booth> what exploit?
19:12:55  <__ln__> what OTDD?
19:13:37  <Djohaal> Chris_Booth: build very long station connecting to far-ish factory
19:13:42  <Djohaal> then remove the in-between blocks
19:14:06  <Chris_Booth> thats not an exploit, just station walking
19:14:49  <Djohaal> I think it's an exploit, but whatever
19:15:00  <Rhamphoryncus> Loooong used since the original days of TTD
19:15:00  <Djohaal> you leave both ends of the station, non contigous
19:15:10  <Djohaal> so you can cover a very large area with few blocks
19:15:36  <Rhamphoryncus> It's abusable, certainly, but "exploit" is the wrong word.
19:16:01  <Rhamphoryncus> Just like building a train at the end of an opponent's station in order to crash them is abuse
19:16:08  <Rhamphoryncus> and destroying their trucks is abuse
19:16:15  <frosch123> Djohaal: you can just as well press ctrl while building a station

19:25:45  <Djohaal> ugh
19:25:51  <Djohaal> question, how does auto refit work?
19:26:16  <frosch123> you need a set which supports it
19:26:29  <Zuu> Eg OpenGFX+ Trains
19:26:30  <frosch123> afaik there is still only ogfx+trains
19:26:56  <Zuu> With it, you get an option to set the cargo to refit to. Refit happen between unload and load.
19:27:05  <Djohaal> hmm
19:27:06  <Djohaal> yeah
19:27:13  <Djohaal> the vector set doesn't support it it seems
19:28:13  <Zuu> If the set doesn't have auto-refit you can still send the train to depot after unload/transfer, refit and then back to the station for loading.
19:28:21  <Djohaal> too much hassle
19:28:47  <Djohaal> question, do OGFX vehicles support the ECS goods per default?
19:28:54  <Djohaal> or I'm stuck with its TTD conversion?
19:29:03  <frosch123> ogfx+ supports them
19:29:19  <frosch123> the "+" is important :)
19:29:47  <Zuu> With "+" == NewGRF. Without "+" == base set
19:29:49  <michi_cc> The newest UKRS2 might support it as well I think.
19:30:07  <Djohaal> hmmm

20:46:59  <Rubidium> Ammler: most (sane) distros define everything they want and don't want
20:47:14  <jazzyjaffa> Ahh, thanks didn't see that page
20:47:37  <Rubidium> Ammler: that way things break hard when stuff is missing, and stuff won't be automagically picked up when it shouldn't be built
20:48:55  <Ammler> Rubidium: is there beside --disable-strip another setting which might be useful for the debug package?
20:49:36  <Rubidium> CFLAGS=-g?

21:05:08  <Eddi|zuHause> hm... is python rounding things differently than nml?
21:06:46  <Hirundo> NML rounds to nearest
21:07:07  <Eddi|zuHause> the offsets are totally wrong now...
21:07:36  <Eddi|zuHause> strange... there aren't really any divisions in the relevant code
21:07:38  <Hirundo> at least... floats are
21:07:46  <Hirundo> for properties
21:09:18  <Eddi|zuHause> should be all integer
21:09:52  <Eddi|zuHause> probably the bug is in some other math

22:09:03  <Nat_aS> is there any way to set up timetabling so that trains sharing orders will try to become evenly spaced out on the network?
22:09:16  <Nat_aS> ie don't leave the station untill the other train is leaving the opisate station.

22:10:21  <hav> you can do that manually, yes
22:11:30  *** Snail__ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:11:53  <Terkhen> good night
22:12:03  <Rhamphoryncus> The orders window has a button at the top to take you to a timetabling window, but it involves a lot of manual adjustment and tends to break
22:12:48  <hav> use the "autofill" on a train what fills up the timetable automatically
22:13:21  <hav> add some days to every way when breakdowns is turned on to avoid late
22:13:50  *** Snail_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
22:13:58  <hav> and adjust the start date for every train manually to keep distance between trains

22:16:57  <Djohaal> dumbest question ever
22:16:59  <Djohaal> how to rotate camera?
22:17:31  <frosch123> you can only rotate it around the normal axis of your screen

22:26:25  <Zuu> When the traffic light at west is green, the generated vehicles are larger. (not OpenTTD)
22:26:46  <Nat_aS> why does this game not support SC2k style map rotation
22:26:55  <Nat_aS> (the map rotates but the sprites stay the same)
22:27:01  <Eddi|zuHause> because we have no graphics for that
22:27:01  <Zuu> Ctrl+X is your frind
22:27:07  <Zuu> friend*
22:27:09  <Nat_aS> no
22:27:13  <Nat_aS> you don't need new graphics
22:27:16  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: e.g. airports
22:27:22  <Nat_aS> oh
22:27:26  <Nat_aS> yeah airports would break
22:27:31  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: or banks
22:27:52  <Nat_aS> but if you did it like SC2k did, it could work without needing too many new sprites
22:28:06  <Eddi|zuHause> Nat_aS: sc2k had 2 sprites
22:28:09  <Eddi|zuHause> per house

22:36:16  <hav> you can make transparent or disable things to look behind structures
22:38:21  <Zuu> Nat_aS: Though, if you just want to rotate airports, you gat get OpenGFX+ Airports and you can rotate them (before construction) :-)

23:49:22  <Zuu> Night
23:49:40  <planetmaker> g'night, Zuu
23:50:06  <planetmaker> doing so is generally a good behaviour. As then reading back will tell the person the topic and maybe think of a question
23:50:15  <planetmaker> s/question/answer or reply/
23:50:17  <krinn> planetmaker, yeah sorry, not a question, it's to see if he got the bug report for the railpathfinder
23:50:38  <planetmaker> bugs go to the bug tracker. Elsewhere they're lost
23:50:47  <planetmaker> if it's there: then it's not lost.
23:51:09  <krinn> it's for the squirrel lib not openttd
23:51:37  <planetmaker> a rail path finder sounds like OpenTTD...
23:52:02  <planetmaker> and as openttd implements a big part of squirrel... it could go there, too
23:52:11  <krinn> yep, but this is for this one
23:53:25  <planetmaker> <-- you mean that?

23:53:40  <Djohaal> where's momtown now
23:54:01  <krinn> yep that one planetmaker will send a ticket
23:55:32  <planetmaker> in this case you might then want to ask one of the two to look at it with the issue URL you create / get. Not sure they read that regularily
