00:25:15  <Baroks> hi
00:28:50  <Baroks> help me
00:33:44  <Skau1> hum what the hell
00:34:10  <Skau1> why do i only get like .. 1/10 of what i usually recived for oil now?
00:39:07  <Baroks> ican't use the 32bpp grafic in 1.2
00:39:32  <V453000> use different resolution of openttd
00:39:34  <V453000> it is a buge
00:41:46  <Baroks> y have the baseset.tar in 32bpp but its not work
00:42:11  <V453000> oh, no clue about the base set, thought you mean the trains
00:44:53  <Baroks> what is the problem?

01:45:22  <Nat_aS> what can cause a station to have a bad rating?
01:45:51  <Nat_aS> more accurately, what can cause a station with an excellent mail rating to have a bad passenger rating?
01:46:14  <Nat_aS> this station receves several PAX trains and three airplanes every day

03:08:10  <Nat_aS> well I figured out how to make Diamonds profitable.
03:08:13  <Nat_aS> put them on mail trains
03:08:24  <Nat_aS> high speed mail trains

09:36:42  <drac_boy> hi dihedral how're you?
09:36:57  <dihedral> ... i know you?
09:36:58  <dihedral> :-P
09:46:26  * drac_boy wonders if you're sick? :P
09:46:28  <drac_boy> heh

09:55:26  <vichu> can anyone help me?
09:56:06  <Eddi|zuHause> sorry, you're beyond hope...
09:56:23  <vichu> y dont may cities allow mw to build?
09:56:34  <vichu> it always says city local authority refuses to allo
09:56:36  <Eddi|zuHause> because you destroyed too many trees
09:56:42  <drac_boy> vichu stop axing/blowing up so much trees perhaps ;)
09:56:46  <drac_boy> heh eddi lucky guess :)
09:56:55  <vichu> how to rectify it now?
09:57:32  <vichu> ??
09:57:38  <Arafangion> Plant a million trees.
09:57:49  <Alberth> if you have stations in the town, provide good service
09:57:59  <Alberth> Arafangion: we should fix that bug :p
09:58:07  <vichu> anywhere in the map? i do provide good service
09:58:17  <Alberth> in the town
09:58:27  <Alberth> or near the town
09:58:30  <vichu> if i plant a lot they ll allow me right?
09:58:40  <Alberth> and wait
09:58:45  <drac_boy> vichu better, next time plan ahead :p
09:58:51  <Arafangion> Alberth: Heh, seriously, though, it's expensive to pull it off!
09:59:43  <Alberth> Arafangion: I usually just go to some other part of the map, and come back later
10:00:09  <Alberth> except 'later' can be a lot later :)

10:05:51  <Arafangion> Alberth: Time heals all wounds. :)
10:15:05  * Alberth nods
10:16:01  <Alberth> besides, if they don't want my services, I make my money elswhere :p
10:16:12  <Arafangion> It's a different matter on very small maps.
10:16:34  <Arafangion> Which is about all I can handle on this computer, but soon...  Soon I'll have a beast of a computer.
10:16:40  <Alberth> I imaginve it can be highly annoying then, indeed
10:17:13  <Alberth> multiple CPUs is not going to make any difference :p
10:17:30  <Alberth> (well, hardly any difference, technically)
10:17:31  <Arafangion> Alberth: Indeed not, I'm already dual-cpu.
10:17:57  <CornishPasty> Oh my goodness, how do you manage to have 2 CPUs Arafangion?
10:17:58  <Arafangion> Alberth: But going up from 1GHz Atom D525 to something like a 3.6 GHz quad-core 3820...  Now, THAT will make a difference. :)
10:18:26  * CornishPasty dreams of Xeons
10:18:30  <Alberth> what is small? I usually play 256x1024 or 512x512 or so
10:18:40  <Arafangion> CornishPasty: That. :)  But I can watch movies, and run x86 applications, and run a 24" screen all on ~50 watts.
10:19:01  <CornishPasty> Arafangion: My 8150 runs at 28W TDP :P
10:19:16  <Arafangion> CornishPasty: I measured that at the *wall*.
10:19:33  <CornishPasty> Ah, my MBP runs 8 logical, 4 physical cores at 95W
10:19:35  <Alberth> it's good to keep a safe distance :p
10:19:49  <Arafangion> Alberth: Small is... 64x64. :)
10:20:11  <Arafangion> Alberth: Actually gets quite difficult!  Because when you have such a tiny map, you very quickly connect all and every cargo.
10:20:17  <CornishPasty> :O
10:20:21  <CornishPasty> That's TEENY!
10:20:31  <Arafangion> Alberth: So those industries eventually produce more and more cargo, which you still have to somehow deliver.
10:20:40  <Alberth> I once did FIRS at 64x64 with RVs, it was quite fun
10:20:48  <Arafangion> FIRS?
10:21:01  <Eddi|zuHause> every time i tried such small maps, i gave up rather quickly, because there is "nothing to do"
10:21:12  <Arafangion> Eddi|zuHause: Just wait a bit, it gets Hard.
10:21:23  <Alberth> Arafangion:
10:21:45  <CornishPasty> Ugh, that title is so tautologous it hurts, Alberth
10:22:04  <Alberth> which is very much not designed for a small map, so it gets swamped with industries, all different :)
10:22:06  <Eddi|zuHause> it's recursive
10:22:19  <CornishPasty> Yes, like LAME and PHP
10:22:35  <Alberth> and GNU
10:22:46  <CornishPasty> Yup yup
10:22:58  <Arafangion> But not like Hurd.
10:24:03  <Arafangion> (Hird of Unix Replacing Daemons)...(Hurd of Interfaces Representing Depth)
10:24:19  <Eddi|zuHause> this is the smallest map i played for a longer time:,%2013.%20Apr%202027.png
10:24:28  <Eddi|zuHause> i believe that is 128x256 or so
10:24:35  <Arafangion> Huge. :)
10:24:48  <Arafangion> But when I get my massive machine, I intend to try the biggest map I can get my hands on.
10:25:00  <Arafangion> And try to somehow link every industry on it, for good measure.
10:25:10  <Arafangion> I'd have to finally figure out the traffic signals, too.
10:25:19  <Arafangion> (I barely use them on small maps)
10:25:25  <CornishPasty> traffic signals?
10:25:57  <Alberth> yes, at the rail tracks :p
10:26:41  <Alberth> Arafangion: I don't understand why people play anything bigger than 1024x1024, you just get more unused space, I think
10:27:14  <Alberth> Eddi|zuHause: looks nice, I cannot take the patience to get that far in the game :)
10:27:35  <Eddi|zuHause> Alberth: that's also the furthest i ever got in openttd :p
10:29:42  * drac_boy usually sticks to 256x256 to 512x512 and inbetween most of the times :)
10:29:56  <drac_boy> and never have anything to not do even 80 years later :)
10:30:56  <Eddi|zuHause> i tend to neglect cargo transports, because passengers are trumping everything
10:32:14  <Arafangion> Alberth: Greater profits due to greater distances?
10:33:07  <Arafangion> What annoys me, is how utterly uncompetitive trucks and buses can be.
10:33:28  <Arafangion> As in, I frequently struggle to even make them break even.
10:33:29  <Alberth> drac_boy: try 128x1024 one time :)
10:33:57  <drac_boy> Alberth I kept meaning to play a customized map with flherne and perhaps others....I had been thinking of a skinny long map funny enough
10:34:14  <drac_boy> maybe one day I'll finally host the game but we'll just have to see
10:34:33  <Alberth> hmm, 64x2048, did anyone try that?
10:34:52  <Alberth> sounds insane :)
10:35:06  <Arafangion> I'd love to host some games, but my internet is shit here. :(
10:35:26  <Arafangion> I should've used capital letters there, but you get the point. :)

11:17:30  <Hazzard> Hi
11:17:41  <Alberth> hi
11:20:07  <NGC3982> afternoon
11:20:53  * NGC3982 is on an old x14.
11:21:36  <Alberth> that's still 20
11:22:00  <NGC3982> 20? :)
11:22:46  <Alberth> x14 looks like a hexadecimal number to me
11:23:13  <drac_boy> heh
11:24:43  <NGC3982> ah:-) hehe
11:27:28  <vichu> am playin 2048x2048
11:27:32  <vichu> awesome map :D
11:28:05  <planetmaker> too big :-(
11:28:13  <vichu> yea but way awesome
11:28:17  <vichu> u never get bored
11:29:11  <planetmaker> especially your CPU won't get bored...
11:29:23  <vichu> lol
11:29:32  <planetmaker> For me those maps become unplayable / too cpu intensive way before I get bored. thus I avoid them
11:29:32  <Alberth> and you run into limits sooner
11:30:03  <vichu> i just started
11:30:07  <vichu> so its a long way
11:31:08  *** curtana [] has joined #openttd
11:32:53  <planetmaker> Hazzard: RUNNING_COST_NONE indeed exists. Seems to be a base cost of 1. Thus no modification
11:32:55  <V453000> for me these maps get unplayable shortly after i start - just cant orientate in such stupidly large map I know I will never fill anyway
11:33:45  <planetmaker> yeah... small(er) maps make for a game one can actually finish :-)
11:33:53  <vichu> wat will happen if my cpu usage increases?
11:33:55  <planetmaker> And there's always a lot of tweaking one can do anyways
11:34:03  <planetmaker> it will eventually lag, vichu
11:34:04  <drac_boy> planetmaker I sometimes get to 2030+ without ever finishing at all some days :p
11:34:10  <planetmaker> and thus be a very bad game experience
11:34:22  <vichu> it doesnt lag for me
11:34:28  <vichu> its proper
11:34:31  <planetmaker> as your cpu simply can't do all the calculations in time which it would need to do
11:34:33  <V453000> yet
11:34:37  <planetmaker> yes, when you start, it is.
11:34:53  <vichu> then wat happens?
11:34:58  <planetmaker>  But it will become more and more cpu heavy the more you advance in building the map, the more vehicles you have, the more industries, the more houses, ...
11:34:59  <Hazzard> Doesn't the game just get reaallly sloww?
11:35:05  <Hazzard> and time slows dowwwnnn?
11:35:17  <planetmaker> Hazzard: yes. But ... the responsiveness to your keyboard and mouse as well
11:35:31  <Hazzard> Like a black hole :P
11:35:38  <planetmaker> and vehicles will seem to jump instead of move etc.
11:36:03  <Hazzard> ofc
11:36:25  <Hazzard> I have too much experience with that
11:36:46  <vichu> omg
11:37:00  <vichu> can u guys get a patch for no limits?
11:37:18  <planetmaker> vichu: try or and see how that works for you ;-)
11:37:22  <V453000> like more than 5000 vehicles? :D
11:37:27  <planetmaker> they're NOT 2048x2048. But they're built-up games
11:37:27  <vichu> yea :D
11:37:38  <V453000> yeah try that ^
11:37:58  <planetmaker> and then ask again about limits
11:38:14  <planetmaker> (I can't reasonably play those)
11:38:40  <V453000> most people cant
11:38:44  <planetmaker> indeed
11:38:46  <V453000> 201 was really only for the last few
11:38:56  <V453000> my laptop was unable too, and it doesnt struggle in most games
11:38:59  <planetmaker> and those maps are only 512**2, thus they're 1/16 of 2048**2
11:39:34  <vichu> so thats y i asked for no limit patch
11:39:49  <Hazzard> Advanced settings?
11:39:59  <vichu> u can run trains anywhere in the map in 2048*2048
11:40:09  <vichu> everywhere industries :D
11:40:14  <V453000> but why would you build more than 5000 trains
11:40:16  <Hazzard> Yeah
11:40:19  <V453000> you have some NASA PC or what?
11:40:24  <vichu> lol
11:40:28  <planetmaker> vichu: and ... please... give us the curtosy of writing proper English
11:41:24  <vichu> 5000 is the limit? and planetmaker
11:41:32  <vichu> i cant get u
11:41:55  <Alberth> 'u' and 'y' are not proper english words
11:42:47  <vichu> lol
11:42:55  <Hazzard> :)
11:42:57  *** CaveJohnson is now known as rails
11:43:05  <planetmaker> I'll pretend to not understand sentences otherwise :-)
11:43:37  * Alberth tends to read 'y' was 'yes', which makes no sense
11:43:42  <Alberth> *as
11:43:49  <vichu> lol
11:44:05  <vichu> so which is the best map?
11:44:14  <planetmaker> the one which you have fun with
11:44:22  *** rails is now known as CaveJohnson
11:44:27  <planetmaker> for a long time
11:44:36  <planetmaker> greatly depends on playing style
11:44:39  <vichu> no the best which will suit the cpu
11:44:47  <Alberth> I must have missed the best maps then :p
11:44:48  *** CaveJohnson is now known as rails
11:45:14  <planetmaker> my playing style is best suited with maps smaller equal 0.25 Mega-tiles
11:45:32  <planetmaker> thus 512**2 and equivalents
11:45:43  <vichu> 512*512?
11:45:45  <Alberth> vichu: anything bigger than 512x512 is useless for a single player
11:45:54  <planetmaker> yes
11:46:10  <planetmaker> Alberth: also for multiplayer... the limits really aren't different
11:46:34  <V453000> 256*256-512*512 is all great in all shapes
11:46:42  <planetmaker> as the hardware requirements are the limiting factor. Actually more so in multiplayer than in single player
11:46:46  <Alberth> planetmaker: unless you play at a LAN perhaps
11:47:27  <planetmaker> maybe... dunno :-)
11:47:32  <vichu> hmmm ok
11:47:38  <vichu> 512*512 is also good
11:48:16  <planetmaker> or 128 x 2048 ;-)
11:48:25  <vichu> let me see tat now
11:49:56  <planetmaker> vichu: but it really depends much on your playing style and also on your hardware
11:50:10  <planetmaker> so... that's why I suggested to test out those heavy-cpu games I linked
11:50:23  <drac_boy> hmm just had to wonder, what ways are there to cut down hardware load on an ottd map?
11:51:11  <drac_boy> all I know of is more for the patch..using the lowmemory=on option and only having a 2x multiplier for maxvehicles (I rarely get anywhere close to that, I do go over the original limit at times tho hence 2x in that case)
11:53:48  <vichu> yea 512*512 is good
11:53:55  <vichu> and 5000 limit will be good too
11:54:03  <vichu> so time to play the game :D
11:54:48  <vichu> thank you alberth and planetmaker ;)
11:57:04  <Alberth> drac_boy: drop MP would help, as you can do mulit-core then :p
11:57:17  <drac_boy> alberth aside to that

12:05:12  <drac_boy> is that actually true?
12:05:45  <Alberth> don't know
12:05:56  <Alberth> ram usage is not the main problem imho
12:06:50  <drac_boy> alberth...what is? :P

12:07:05  *** kaenkky [] has quit [Quit: d]
12:07:13  *** curtana [] has joined #openttd
12:07:17  <Alberth> which is mostly due to train path finding
12:07:39  <Alberth> and a bit of newgrf callbacks iirc
12:07:46  <Arafangion> Which is why I'm really looking forward to my new monster. :)
12:07:53  <Arafangion> 3.6 GHz of awesomeness.
12:08:03  <drac_boy> alberth surely aren't train pathfinder quite 'low resource'?  or do the patch and ottd differ?
12:08:21  <drac_boy> because I don't see much hit on the cpu even with many pbs-enabled trains here re patch with busy map
12:08:31  <drac_boy> Arafangion :-p
12:09:09  <Alberth> don't know what the patch does
12:09:10  <Arafangion> drac_boy: You'll note that I brought this up the last time we were talking, too. :) Rather obsessing about it, but then again, I _am_ currently on a D525.
12:09:43  <Alberth> if it is like the original program, the OpenTTD PF is much better
12:10:40  <drac_boy> Alberth if ottd is better then that means 500 trains on shared routes would barely need more than a 200mhz slice.  just guessing roughly tho
12:11:52  <Alberth> much better pathfinding results I mean, not much better CPU use :)
12:12:26  <Arafangion> :)
12:12:32  <Arafangion> Is OTTD in git?
12:12:45  <Alberth> there is a git mirror
12:13:00  <Arafangion> Mirrors are sucky.
12:13:06  <Alberth> and also a hg mirror
12:13:25  <Arafangion> Ah, it's in svn.
12:13:43  <planetmaker> ping curtana
12:14:15  * Arafangion picks the mirror, as a result. :)
12:14:32  <drac_boy> alberth...I've not noticed anything better except that ottd ships don't always like far-apart buoy by comparasion on other hand
12:14:40  <drac_boy> but then what do I really know tho
12:14:41  <planetmaker> Arafangion, in my experience working with the git or hg repo for dev is easier than the svn one
12:14:54  <Arafangion> planetmaker: Yep, does'nt mean it's not sucky.
12:15:01  <planetmaker> why?
12:15:05  <NGC3982> :-) = .ndkd.
12:15:09  <Arafangion> planetmaker: But then again, it's not like I have push access, so it's probably irrelevant.
12:15:55  <Alberth> drac_boy: ships are much more costly in CPU time than trains; too many paths to chose from
12:15:58  <planetmaker> really, that doesn't quite matter... it might save a step. But it's an extra step to check for sanity. Thus it's not time lost IMHO
12:16:04  <curtana> Hi planetmaker
12:16:26  <planetmaker> you contacted me regarding OpenGFX
12:16:49  <drac_boy> heh
12:17:31  <Arafangion> Alberth: But the ship pathing can be much more naive, surely?
12:17:45  <curtana> Yeah, rather than getting in over my head to start with just working on some sprites at the moment with a mate who does some dev work for OTTD
12:19:00  <Alberth> Arafangion: it already is; there is no collision concept at all
12:19:00  <planetmaker> so what's your ideas / suggestions / contributions? :-) They sure are welcome
12:19:21  *** Jupix [~jupix@] has joined #openttd
12:19:45  <Arafangion> Alberth: Not to mention, wouldn't the fitness function be very simplistic, as well?
12:19:58  <Arafangion> Alberth: Quite possibly a simple distance function?
12:20:44  <Alberth> I think it is, but the problem is the number of paths that exist, at every tile you have about 3 directions to continue, and they are all equal
12:21:07  <Alberth> so you get an explosion in number of paths to pick the optimal one from
12:21:39  <Alberth> which is really just a big waste, as they are all equal ;p
12:21:49  <Alberth> but how to detect that is the problem
12:21:53  <Arafangion> Alberth: You don't have to pick a /path/, really, just the next square.
12:21:59  <curtana> I've got experience doing sprites and was going to look at jumping into learning NML and trying some bugfixes. Thinkin I'll start with fixing some trams prites for my friend first though.
12:22:02  <planetmaker> Arafangion, you sure do...
12:22:10  <Arafangion> planetmaker: For ships?
12:22:19  <planetmaker> Arafangion, sure. Or you go the wrong direction
12:22:25  <planetmaker> you can't cross land tiles
12:22:30  <planetmaker> and want to do better than random walk
12:22:41  <Arafangion> planetmaker: Well, you have to disregard the neighbouring land tiles.
12:22:57  <planetmaker> there you go. That's path finding already
12:22:59  <Arafangion> And then just pick the remaining neighbouring tile that has the cheapest result as determined by the fitness function.
12:23:10  <Arafangion> Semantics!
12:23:43  <Hazzard> Isn't that just like following the right wall of a maze till you reach the end?
12:23:45  <planetmaker> curtana, OpenGFX itself has no trams. Base sets cannot have them. OpenGFX+ Road Vehicles has trams
12:23:56  <planetmaker> but what do you understand under "fix"?
12:24:18  <Arafangion> Hazzard: Possibly.
12:24:35  <Alberth> Arafangion: I'd suggest you do some experiments in a very simple setup to see what that approach does
12:24:57  <planetmaker> Hazzard, Arafangion that's about the worst choice after random walk to reach a destination
12:25:28  <Arafangion> Well, I've barely used ships...  But don't they require a fairly liberal use of bouys?
12:25:49  <planetmaker> curtana, but that said: surely OpenGFX+ Road Vehicles *can* use more trams than it already has. The three trams as present barely cover the needs
12:25:57  <Alberth> Arafangion: bouys are just a measure to reduce computation costs
12:26:41  <planetmaker> also... YAPF does a not too bad job in OpenTTD 1.2.0 with its caching...
12:26:50  <Arafangion> Sounds like I'd have to find time to do some pathfinding experiments.
12:27:08  <curtana> planetmaker, not sure whether they are OpenTTD or TTDPatch he's just sent them through for me to work on. Still happy to help out with OpenGFX, just  have no idea where to start :)
12:27:44  <planetmaker> curtana, that's a good question. What do you like to improve? :-)
12:28:04  <planetmaker> My personal wishlist includes houses which are not that noisy
12:28:11  <Hazzard> This colormap grf stuff is awesome
12:29:34  <planetmaker> The wishlist also includes toyland-specific sprites for the infrastructure (stations, RV stops, airports)
12:30:13  <curtana> I can have a look at the houses.
12:30:35  <planetmaker> how do you create sprites, curtana ?
12:30:43  <planetmaker> Do you draw 8bpp? Or render 32bpp?
12:32:09  <curtana> draw 8bpp is what I've done to date
12:32:48  <drac_boy> 8bpp for both small and large screens to me
12:32:50  <drac_boy> :)
12:32:53  <curtana> Have some experience with 3DSMAX a long time ago :) but not specifically rendering down to 32bpp
12:36:00  *** mal2 [] has joined #openttd
12:38:42  <planetmaker> ok, I'm just curious. It's your choice and 8bpp and 32bpp can be of different origin anyway :-)
12:40:14  <Arafangion> Hmm, the source code looks pretty good, at first impression.
12:43:21  <curtana> old fashioned pixelart. I did some work on the Japan Train set which is somewhere on TT-forums.
12:43:47  * drac_boy just prefers 8bpp for a few reasons but thats to our own tho

12:44:26  <planetmaker> ah, yes, I know it. I love it :-)
12:44:34  <planetmaker> And... it actually is also on the DevZone :-)
12:45:01  <curtana> What's on teh DevZone?
12:45:02  <planetmaker> curtana, do you know the OpenGFX repository and its friends?
12:45:24  <planetmaker> It's the home of nearly all open-source 3rd party stuff for OpenTTD
12:45:40  <planetmaker> where you find their source codes, their bug trackers
12:45:51  <curtana> I was having a look around on there today and tried playing around with mercurial but go t abit lost :P
12:45:53  <planetmaker> or rather maybe issue trackers to put it more neutrally
12:46:09  <planetmaker> :-) All you need for a start is
12:46:13  <planetmaker> hg clone URL
12:46:23  <planetmaker> and hg up REV
12:46:33  <Arafangion> Man, the ship controller's heavily nested.
12:47:08  <planetmaker> many projects rely on the a unix-like environment to build properly
12:48:22  <Hazzard> Why are there so many more reds then CC greens/blues?
12:48:42  <drac_boy> ?
12:48:55  <Hazzard> in the Palettes
12:50:12  <Alberth> hsitoric reasons probably
12:50:17  <Alberth> *historic
12:51:52  <Hazzard> I originally drew my sprites in red

13:32:01  <Hazzard> Ok
13:32:03  <V453000> this means that you use new sprites I guess
13:32:06  <V453000> not some from base set
13:32:26  <planetmaker> that's right
13:33:40  <V453000> ^^
13:34:06  <planetmaker> you can animate vehicles by making use of the variable motion_counter
13:35:12  <Hazzard> I think i'll figure that out later
13:35:25  <planetmaker> you definitely should get a working vehicle first
13:35:52  <Hazzard> I am about 5 minutes from that I think :D

13:38:53  <planetmaker> or will it help you in any way, if you know that *someone* uses gimp?
13:39:46  <planetmaker> <-- Hazzard
13:40:05  <planetmaker> it's really worth the read. And I don't mean it offensive :-)
13:40:18  <planetmaker> It makes communication quite efficient to heed it, though
13:40:28  <Hazzard> That is a lot of text
13:40:53  <Hazzard> What are offsets?
13:40:56  <planetmaker> yes, it's a bit. But I actually enjoyed reading it
13:41:14  <V453000> offsets are something you will hate and love
13:41:22  <V453000> ^smart answer ^^
13:41:44  <V453000> the offsets say how is the sprite positioned
13:41:46  <planetmaker> offsets are alignment info
13:42:19  <planetmaker> with respect to sprite's (0,0)
13:42:34  <Hazzard> I am getting a "read beyond the image bounds of the image file" Could that have anything to do with the offsets?

14:32:03  <planetmaker> *learnt to know
14:32:45  <planetmaker> can be quite confusing ;-) Luckily the display style was very good
14:33:23  <planetmaker> and timing of announcements and their quality also
14:33:51  <Alberth> andythenorth: frosch had some ideas with relative requirements on slopes, but I don't know the details
14:34:03  <andythenorth> quak?
14:34:06  <andythenorth> no frosch :P
14:34:33  * andythenorth wonders what other patches are needed for FIRS / newgrf industry
14:34:49  <Alberth> andy was also missing here for some time ;)
14:34:56  <andythenorth> now is a good time to think about 1.3
14:35:18  <Alberth> planetmaker: so you wait until it makes a sound, ignore what it says, and look at the display? :)
14:35:43  <planetmaker> the only thing to verify is left or right. The rest was accurate
14:36:48  <andythenorth> hmm
14:36:58  <andythenorth> only obvious patch is the cb15f one I wrote
14:37:04  <andythenorth> other things:
14:37:18  <planetmaker> and I learnt that the navi system in Ford vehicles is not worth a single penny
14:37:32  <andythenorth> - stations at water industries are silly, but that needs New Stations / New Ports / New ***
14:37:34  <CornishPasty> Na'vi?
14:37:52  <planetmaker> navigation system
14:38:13  <planetmaker> but probably I just don't get your joke ;-)
14:38:20  <andythenorth> - industry closure has not really been considered properly, from ground up
14:38:39  <andythenorth> maybe industry closure needs rethinking, accounting sanely for both NoGo and Newgrf
14:38:59  <planetmaker> preferrably the answer is 'yes'
14:47:10  <andythenorth> currently closure is very difficult to handle well
14:47:46  <andythenorth> at least part of the difficulty is due to the mechanism: newgrf returns 'close next month' to game
14:49:39  <andythenorth> ottd doesn't appear to maintain any list of industries which are then due to close
14:50:32  <andythenorth> does ottd have any kind of data structures available besides the map?
14:52:01  <planetmaker> all the vehicle, cargo packet, orders pools
14:52:03  <planetmaker> stations
14:52:07  <planetmaker> etc :-)
14:52:13  <planetmaker> settings
14:52:15  <planetmaker>  :-P
14:52:42  * andythenorth wonders about a newgrf var that could return list of industries already marked for closure (and type)

14:56:11  *** sla_ro|master [~slaco@] has joined #openttd
14:56:31  <andythenorth> if NoGo wants to close an industry, who should win?  NoGo or Newgrf?
14:58:35  *** Arafangion [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
14:58:36  <Alberth> not sure, for idle industries, it makes sense for the game to decide
14:59:45  <Alberth> what are good reasons to let the newgrf decide?
14:59:45  <andythenorth> so the current setup is, newgrf wins
14:59:58  <andythenorth> the current setup doesn't work brilliantly imho
15:00:12  <andythenorth> but we have to preserve that spec
15:00:58  <Alberth> adding a 'please close' option, or is it a special case of 'please go down in production'?
15:01:14  <Alberth> the latter seems a bit awkward
15:01:15  <andythenorth> maybe either
15:02:11  <Alberth> with a used industry, the player must get time to adapt to the industry shutting down
15:02:31  <Alberth> one month is not enough, especially as it is not findable in its window
15:03:00  <Alberth> (maybe with newgrfs it is different, don't know exactly)
15:03:30  <planetmaker> Alberth, "please close" is by the definition of the production callback a special case of "change production"
15:03:41  <planetmaker> but of course the callback is newgrf-decided
15:04:23  <Alberth> let's open a window "dear player, please apply magic bulldozer on this industry" :p
15:05:00  <planetmaker> the newgrf basically can set any production level as it wishes:
15:05:33  *** Zeknurn [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:05:53  <andythenorth> every time I think about this I end up with precise same amount of puzzle
15:06:10  <andythenorth> for good NoGo gameplay, NoGo should be able to force industries to close
15:06:15  *** Zeknurn [] has joined #openttd
15:06:28  <andythenorth> but for good industry-related gameplay, newgrf should control industry closure
15:06:48  <andythenorth> hmm
15:06:51  <Alberth> please elaborate on the latter
15:07:06  <Alberth> what is good industry-related gameplay?
15:07:22  <andythenorth> so newgrfs make promises about industries to player, e.g. deliver cargo, pickup cargo in certain ways, and production will increase / decrease, industry will stay open / close
15:07:51  <andythenorth> but for scripted-scenario style play, NoGo needs to be able to impose on player 'boom, all industries near this town just closed.  Bad luck!'
15:08:10  * andythenorth ponders two classes of 'please close' event
15:08:23  <andythenorth> sent by game or NoGo
15:08:39  <andythenorth> class 1 is 'I am just managing the general economy, how do you feel about closing?'
15:08:54  <andythenorth> class 2 is 'for narrative reasons, you need to close.  Will you?'
15:08:55  <Alberth> the latter is a sudden change, /me would not like that type of game, but others may
15:09:23  <andythenorth> so OpenGFX+ Industries might answer yes to both
15:09:24  <Alberth> I would like game that switch from one type to another type in say 10 game years or so
15:09:33  <Alberth> eg coal -> oil or so
15:09:35  <andythenorth> Manual industries would answer no to both (depending on parameter)
15:09:43  <andythenorth> FIRS would ignore class 1, but accept class 2
15:10:48  *** Prof_Frink [] has joined #openttd
15:10:52  <andythenorth> Alberth: your example is narrative
15:11:14  <andythenorth> 'in this game, all coal mines start to close after date xyx, even if doing well'
15:11:18  <andythenorth> so class 2
15:11:55  <Alberth> nope, I think. Production would slowly decrease (less demand of coal), and production of oil increases
15:12:11  <andythenorth> that is harder to enforce without a major spec change
15:12:37  <andythenorth> although 'close' is anyway a specific value for 'change production'
15:12:41  *** pugi [] has quit []
15:12:48  <andythenorth> so there could be two classes of 'change production'
15:12:57  <andythenorth> one more highly weighted than the other
15:13:17  <andythenorth> but then NoGo needs to know that, e.g. this is a coal mine
15:13:21  <Alberth> close == change production, in case production is about 0
15:13:28  <andythenorth> NoGo is supposed to be blind to specific newgrfs
15:14:28  <Alberth> I don't know what NoGo can do w.r.t. cargoes, but that would be the control mechanism I guess (ie increase global production of cargo X)
15:16:04  <Alberth> there is another form of close, but perhaps closely related with industry mix. New industries become available, but old ones refuse to go
15:16:58  <andythenorth> FIRS industries refuse to go
15:17:23  <andythenorth> maybe they should go
15:17:33  <Alberth> yes, which means it is hard to get newer industries in the game
15:18:15  <andythenorth> the original plan for FIRS was successive generations of industries
15:18:35  <andythenorth> over-ruled by players who don't want disrupted networks
15:19:31  <Alberth> I don't know whether two classes is useful; a scenario like mine would be programmed by slow production changes, and then closure; a scenario like your nogo one would simply skip the 'slow production change' part
15:20:04  *** Progman [] has joined #openttd
15:20:12  <andythenorth> so NoGo would specify amount of coal to be produced this month on map?
15:20:31  <Alberth> they do have somewhat of a point, at 30+ industries, and you move the industries every 20 years, that's a lot of work
15:21:04  <Alberth> that would make NoGo newgrf independent, I think
15:21:17  <andythenorth> so it would be interesting if primary industry production changed radically
15:21:30  <andythenorth> so that the amount of raw cargo produced was centralised
15:21:39  <andythenorth> supplies etc would still be possible
15:22:09  <andythenorth> let amount of coal be 10k tons
15:22:12  <Alberth> It sounds like fun to me, but that's just me, perhaps
15:22:18  <andythenorth> let there be 10 nodes (coal mines)
15:22:49  <andythenorth> let each mine produce 1k tons
15:23:02  <andythenorth> now deliver supplies to mine 7
15:23:13  <andythenorth> mine 7 now produces 2k tons
15:23:39  <andythenorth> other mines produce 1k tons ea. total 11k tons for map
15:23:52  <andythenorth> now coal is out of favour
15:24:02  <andythenorth> let total amount be 5.5k tons
15:24:16  <andythenorth> distributed to mines in same ratio
15:24:44  <Alberth> more random would be more fun imho
15:25:13  <andythenorth> well you write the rules for that in NoGo
15:25:19  <Alberth> ie send out 'change production (up/down)' to random mines until you reach the desired level
15:25:38  <andythenorth> I would set the levels directly
15:26:11  <Alberth> but NoGo does not do individual industries afaik
15:27:09  <Alberth> we could make a notion 'ease of getting the raw material' :)
15:30:53  <andythenorth> Alberth: I am envisaging a whole new layer of spec
15:31:25  <Alberth> omg, what have I done???!??  :)
15:32:17  <andythenorth> industry behaviour is a known problem anyway
15:32:59  <Alberth> Perhaps the issue is not opening/closing but production control in general. Open/close is just the first and last change, in that respect.
15:33:58  *** fonsinchen [] has joined #openttd
15:34:23  <andythenorth> yes
15:35:24  <andythenorth> basically delegate aspects of production control to the script
15:35:40  <andythenorth> via setting existing production level vars
15:36:20  <andythenorth> ship a reusable industry library for nogo
15:37:05  <Alberth> it needs C++ code as well, as there may not be a NoGo script running (or a different one)
15:37:17  <andythenorth> produce a default nogo script to go with the newgrf
15:37:27  <andythenorth> if no other nogo in use, use that
15:37:31  <Alberth> andythenorth: via setting existing production level vars <-- are that global production levels or per industry?
15:38:00  <andythenorth> per industry, but decide the values based on total production, or by any other rules
15:38:42  <andythenorth> this idea only applies to primary-style production
15:38:47  <Alberth> hmm, 1 level per industry type would drastically reduce the number of news items :p
15:39:16  <andythenorth> depends on how nogo triggers news messages :P
15:44:46  <andythenorth> hmm

16:04:17  *** mode/#openttd [+v glx] by ChanServ
16:11:34  <andythenorth> so my idea is something like:
16:11:52  <andythenorth> - allow NoGo to handle IndustryMonthlyLoop as an event
16:12:13  <andythenorth> - give it two passes over the industries, the first is to read properties / variables
16:12:29  <andythenorth> - the second is to set production level for each
16:13:07  <andythenorth> the second pass appears to newgrf exactly as current production cb, unchanged
16:13:34  <andythenorth> and newgrf can choose to defer to game (NoGo), or handle its own production change (no spec change)
16:14:12  <andythenorth> the first pass could then be exposed to newgrf, allowing newgrf to handle reporting values to NoGo
16:14:57  <andythenorth> the industry random production change could be handled identically.  (I would bin it, but that's unlikely I guess)
16:15:15  <andythenorth> that is all :P

18:09:20  <andythenorth> and return values to events?
18:09:52  <Eddi|zuHause> the script can check whether certain events occured. but there is no "interrupt handling" for events

19:23:30  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: there was some good suggestion for that menu availability cb?
19:23:48  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, something like that
19:26:31  <andythenorth> post-stable release is good patching time :)
19:27:15  <Alberth> good night all
19:27:21  <andythenorth> seems like a simple cb: return 00 for hide, or any other value to show?
19:27:23  <andythenorth> bye Alberth
19:27:41  *** Alberth [] has left #openttd []
19:28:03  <andythenorth> or return the climate availability to match the current prop, but that might be odd
19:29:35  <Chris_Booth> I need to have /ignore cb in this channel
19:30:35  *** mahmoud [] has joined #openttd
19:30:36  <andythenorth> needs a var: check availability of vehicle id

19:36:45  <Chris_Booth> andythenorth: you need a new helper, and a donate button so we can help you for making the game great for us!
19:37:07  <andythenorth> Chris_Booth: just wait until bananas charges .99 for newgrfs
19:37:11  <andythenorth> all will be fine then
19:37:24  <Chris_Booth> I would pay that any day
19:37:32  <Chris_Booth> and not even think of it
19:38:28  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: and return "callback failed" for default (random) behaviour?
19:38:44  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: or a value for 'use default', e.g. 04 or such
19:38:49  <andythenorth> but yes
19:40:00  <Ammler> Chris_Booth: Hello :-)
19:40:03  <andythenorth> this is probably a 7 line patch; seems like it's just a switch statement and add the constants for the cb number
19:40:06  <Ammler> do I need to read back?
19:40:16  <Chris_Booth> Ammler: no I have done it now
19:40:21  <Chris_Booth> check PZ
19:40:33  <andythenorth> adding a var to check availability of other vehicles might be harder :|
19:40:53  <Chris_Booth> I paid for some beer for you Ammler :P
19:41:09  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: should think about it in conjunction with nogo :P
19:41:27  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: just pass the vehicle id to a 40+/60+ var?
19:41:38  <andythenorth> sounds plausible
19:41:45  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: but how to handle the "phases" wrt reliability?
19:41:55  *** Wolf01 [~wolf01@] has joined #openttd

19:42:29  * andythenorth had a silly idea: var calls availability cb for vehicle with id xyz
19:42:37  <andythenorth> *might* be circular :P

19:44:58  *** fonsinchen [] has joined #openttd

19:55:00  <krinn> hi guys, where can i reserve the 4 chars AI/lib to use in bananas ? I can't put my hands on the thread in the forum, is it delete?
20:02:42  <planetmaker> probably it's a sticky in the NoAI / scripts forum
20:03:50  <krinn> that's what i was looking, but it's no more there
20:03:53  <NataS> nobody wants to try co-op with me?
20:05:37  <Eddi|zuHause> it says "use a max. 3mm screwdriver"... but apparently their 3mm seem to be smaller than my 3mm...
20:06:13  <planetmaker> NataS: there are the coop servers...
20:06:14  <andythenorth> try '2 and a bit'
20:06:38  <NataS> yes, but I want to bring other players into my existing single player game
20:06:47  <NataS> to help me expand my high speed rail network
20:06:54  <planetmaker> krinn:
20:07:13  <Eddi|zuHause> or they meant "use brute force"
20:07:15  <NataS> it's the year 2093 and my network covers a quarter of cuba
20:07:30  <NataS> and I am stumped as how to elegently extend it north of Havana
20:07:32  <krinn> planetmaker, oh gone to the wiki, can anyone add a new one for me ?
20:07:45  <planetmaker> you do that yourself ;-)
20:07:54  <planetmaker> (that's why it was moved to the wiki)
20:08:06  <krinn> never touch a wiki in my life, and don't wish to put hell on it
20:08:19  <planetmaker> too bad then ;-)
20:08:30  <andythenorth> Eddi|zuHause: use a hammer
20:09:30  * andythenorth ponders
20:09:36  <andythenorth> convert HEQS to nml?
20:10:18  <Eddi|zuHause> what for?
20:10:42  <NataS> also, no servers match my version
20:10:43  <NataS> :P
20:11:04  <andythenorth> so I can use the BANDIT code for articulated vehicles, refitting to different lengths etc
20:11:05  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: port HEQS to the BANDIT codebase...
20:11:15  <andythenorth> exactly
20:11:25  <andythenorth> HEQS has a lot of vehicle-specific code though
20:11:30  <andythenorth> BANDIT is 100% generic
20:11:33  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: only port over the vehicle data and sprite offsets, throw everything else away
20:11:43  <andythenorth> yes
20:11:48  <andythenorth> I'd start from scratch pretty much
20:12:14  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: do FIRS economies first :(
20:12:16  <Eddi|zuHause> :)
20:12:19  <andythenorth> planetmaker: ^^
20:12:31  <andythenorth> I can't do FIRS economies in CPP
20:12:31  <planetmaker> :-)
20:12:41  <andythenorth> that's planetmaker or yexo level stuff
20:12:54  <andythenorth> I could do it in python, but the conversion would be a lot of work :P
20:13:13  <planetmaker> you sure could do that in NML, too ;_)
20:14:26  <andythenorth> we'd want to conditionally change a lot of defines etc
20:14:40  <andythenorth> that means nesting varadic macros or such
20:15:09  <andythenorth> or....
20:15:20  <andythenorth> we just duplicate all the code for each economy
20:15:28  <andythenorth> and set the defines appropriately
20:15:37  <andythenorth> big, but simple
20:16:13  <planetmaker> I'd do it like in OpenGFX+Industries, first just changing availability of industries
20:16:27  <planetmaker> and maybe then 2nd step parameter-dependent properties
20:17:17  *** th_gergo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:17:20  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, this smaller screwdriver works way better
20:17:39  <andythenorth> we should probably only change action 0 props anyway
20:17:50  <andythenorth> anything else is a nightmare for testing / bug reports
20:18:10  *** telanus [~Barney_Er@] has left #openttd []
20:18:18  <Eddi|zuHause> i think cargo availability is the most troublesome
20:18:21  *** KritiK [] has joined #openttd
20:18:28  <planetmaker> anything else is anyway a 3rd step only. And we need to see how steps 1 and 2 work out, IMHO
20:18:31  <Eddi|zuHause> if you want to have different cargo subsets
20:18:35  <planetmaker> yes
20:22:43  *** fonsinchen [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
20:24:46  <andythenorth> fortunately the game handles cargo availability quite well already
20:25:01  <andythenorth> if cargo not available, but define in action 0 for industry, nothing blows up
20:32:19  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, but if SCMT is not defined, you'd want to change the steel mill output to 4 per ore and 4 per coal. or 6/2
20:34:06  <planetmaker> also yes ;-)
20:34:34  <andythenorth> true, but more complicated
20:35:08  <andythenorth> lots of {string} :P
20:35:48  <Eddi|zuHause> your idea of just duplicating the industry might come in handy there
20:37:41  <andythenorth> "simple is simpler" :P
20:37:57  <andythenorth> if I did my maths correctly, it produces a ~10MB grf :
20:38:16  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: the output level could work via cargo availability checks to be normalized to the desired max output level
20:38:32  <planetmaker> that probably can be generalized somewhat to work w/o ifs
20:39:32  <andythenorth> if we have to use ifs, it definitely gets worse :P
20:39:38  <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: i don't think you have to duplicate the sprites
20:39:44  <andythenorth> no
20:41:26  <andythenorth> hmm
20:41:40  <andythenorth> if it was python-based, I'd make each industry type an object subclassing Industry
20:41:54  <andythenorth> each economy would just be a list of industry objects
20:42:45  <andythenorth> I'd template those in with action 7 wrapped around them, all sharing the graphics chain
20:44:48  <Eddi|zuHause> problem is that you cannot skip action2 with an action7
20:45:12  <Chris_Booth> Eddi|zuHause: can you skip both with an action9?
20:45:19  <Eddi|zuHause> no
20:45:38  <Eddi|zuHause> can't skip action2 with an action9 either
20:45:48  <Eddi|zuHause> and you can't change it with action6
20:46:24  <andythenorth> I wouldn't need to skip the action 2s afaict
20:48:28  <andythenorth> they do no harm
20:48:28  <NataS> are there ANY co-op servers that use any version of cargodist?
20:48:41  <NataS> I want to try co-op, but i Just can't go back to trunk.
20:48:56  <Eddi|zuHause> NataS: i know that problem...
20:49:12  <Eddi|zuHause> i've had that for many years now :)
20:49:46  <Eddi|zuHause> NataS: you need a pretty close community to use a non-release build in multiplayer, though
20:49:49  <NataS> sure cargodist is less than perfect, but not having any sort of cargo destinations is the opposite of perfect.
20:51:32  <zxbiohazardzx> NaTaS there where some realms that play on custom builds (eg Chrillcore Patchpack
20:51:46  <zxbiohazardzx> if that contains CargoDist then you can try that as tehre are some that do
20:52:59  <NataS> how do I find them?
20:53:56  <zxbiohazardzx> like you would do on others
20:54:07  <zxbiohazardzx> just hit multiplayer and check if you get any greens (matching revision)
20:54:16  <NataS> it's all red
20:54:19  <zxbiohazardzx> thats how me/roma/ext used to play huge maps with the patchpack etc
20:54:24  <NataS> everything red forever
20:54:36  <zxbiohazardzx> then your revision =/ other revisions
20:54:39  <zxbiohazardzx> alot of them are on stable
20:54:46  <zxbiohazardzx> but sometimes you get a few on patchpack
20:54:53  <zxbiohazardzx> if not then just ask on forums if anyone is interested
20:54:54  <zxbiohazardzx> :P

20:55:49  <NataS> i have come to the conclusion that all the good maps are too big for one player
20:57:01  <Rubidium> then they're probably too big for multiplayer as well
20:57:24  <NataS> lol
20:57:33  <NataS> why do people keep making huge maps
20:57:35  <NataS> :P
20:57:44  <planetmaker> that's a good question. I wonder, too
20:57:53  <zxbiohazardzx> lies
20:58:00  <planetmaker> They just see the big map and the many possibilities. But are not aware of the game's limits
20:58:03  <zxbiohazardzx> i played a 2048x2048 with everything
20:58:08  <zxbiohazardzx> Cindini map in multiplayer
20:58:08  <Rubidium> come on, the only good maps are 16kx16k
20:58:12  <zxbiohazardzx> i haz savegame to share
20:58:34  <zxbiohazardzx> 2048x2048 with paxdest & huge cities, it lags balls even in SP if you try to view the wrong regions

21:00:55  <zxbiohazardzx> gaming pc
21:01:00  <NataS> I have an i7 and 6gb of ram
21:01:17  <zxbiohazardzx> intel i7, 16 gb ram, geforce gtx 560 win 7 x64
21:01:24  <NataS> damn
21:01:30  <NataS> so it lags even with that setup?
21:01:35  <zxbiohazardzx> yes
21:01:41  <zxbiohazardzx> ever seen the cindini map?
21:01:42  <NataS> also, what happens if you press fast forward on a tiny map?
21:01:58  <zxbiohazardzx> the 3.0 is downloadable via BaNaNa's
21:02:03  <zxbiohazardzx> im not a fast-fowarder
21:02:16  <zxbiohazardzx> i use pause more often then i use ffw
21:02:37  <NataS> i can fast forward when using my netbook, but it's dangerous to use that on my gaming laptop
21:02:42  <NataS> esp on a small map
21:02:47  <NataS> time can slip away
21:03:00  <zxbiohazardzx> just grab the Cindini map 3.001 from Banana's

21:10:25  <zxbiohazardzx> rivertiles or canaltiles
21:10:38  <NataS> did they have to flood the area first?

21:13:37  <zxbiohazardzx> haha
21:13:38  <NataS> play as the local authority and "Zone" areas
21:13:45  <zxbiohazardzx> well whopper spend ALOT of time on that map
21:13:55  <NataS> then coperate with the people playing as transport companies
21:14:15  <zxbiohazardzx> and me/roma/ext played alot of games after/before this one
21:14:22  <zxbiohazardzx> so we all liked realistic networking

21:14:52  <NataS> I think the worst thing about huge maps like this is the inibility to zoom out all the way
21:15:38  <zxbiohazardzx> yeah instead of extra zoom (more zoomed in) i would have prefered extra zoom (more zooming out possible)
21:15:56  <NataS> yeah, I don't get the point of zooming further in
21:16:01  <zxbiohazardzx> but im not sure how that works out for the devs
21:16:06  <NataS> it will just make things more ugly and less usefull

21:16:46  <zxbiohazardzx> would more zooming out give issues with map-array or shit like that?

21:17:44  <supermop> planetmaker: yes
21:18:07  <NataS> Hmm, I supose deleting some of the redundent factories would make nice room for freight stations
21:18:56  <NataS> still have to demolish other things to make room for the tracks though, why are these all in the water
21:19:09  <NataS> maybe this map is designed for boats
21:19:19  <zxbiohazardzx> hehe
21:19:24  <zxbiohazardzx> nah

21:19:36  <zxbiohazardzx> and were on v2
21:19:40  <zxbiohazardzx> so less industries
21:19:43  <zxbiohazardzx> we rail it
21:19:44  <NataS> there needs to be a ship speed factor setting
21:19:48  <NataS> to make them move faster
21:19:48  <zxbiohazardzx> the water and parks are there for a reason
21:19:53  <zxbiohazardzx> we actually did use some boats

21:41:42  <zxbiohazardzx> not sure
21:41:48  <zxbiohazardzx> see wiki on multiplayer FAQ
21:41:58  <Rubidium> might it be the ports in the multiplayer documentation?
21:42:18  <zxbiohazardzx> 3979 is default, but you can change it :P
21:42:48  <zxbiohazardzx> 3979 inbound+outbound UDP , 3978 outbound UDP

22:07:50  <NataS> looking it up I find there are people who have to minipulate 16 gb immages
22:07:52  <NataS> :C
22:08:17  <Eddi|zuHause> NataS: "normal" image viewers will try to unpack the whole file into memory
22:08:24  <NataS> apparently these are synthetic aperture radar images.
22:08:43  <zxbiohazardzx>
22:08:49  <zxbiohazardzx> Eddi any suggestions for that?
22:08:49  <Eddi|zuHause> NataS: so you want one which can handle partial images
22:09:13  <CornishPasty> zxbiohazardzx: you want port forwarding, not triggering
22:09:23  <zxbiohazardzx> CornishPasty hmmz
22:09:44  <CornishPasty> I don't know what port the dedicated server talks to the master server on...
22:09:45  <zxbiohazardzx> how do i foward it haha
22:09:50  <zxbiohazardzx> 3979
22:09:59  <CornishPasty> Virtual Servers, zxbiohazardzx

22:10:12  <NataS> hamachi should work
22:10:19  <NataS> it usualy works in situations like this
22:10:48  <CornishPasty> NataS: I'd use imagick for cropping large files :P
22:11:18  <zxbiohazardzx> CornishPasty still same
