00:01:46  <rutine> i have a problem playing openttd. i can't play multiplayer games with my friends  with big scenarios (more than 1.5Mb)... if it takes more than 15-20 secs to load the map the connection crashes.  "downloading map took too long" appears in the server screen... (1826+STR_NETWORK_ERROR_CLIENT_TIMEOUT_MAP)) in google.
00:02:13  <rutine> any clue?
00:02:47  <rutine> we are using 1.3.2

00:30:15  <Eddi|zuHause> rutine: there are timeout settings in the openttd.cfg file
00:32:16  <rutine> ok thanks
00:37:29  <rutine> it works
00:38:55  <rutine> i change max_init_time , max_join_time and max_download_time   and i was able to connect a 5,61 Mb map

11:59:14  <oskari89> How funny
11:59:36  <oskari89> Current trunk's cargodest's destination layer vanishes after savegame load
12:01:37  <planetmaker> btw, cargodist ;-) i. not e.
12:02:12  <planetmaker> distribution. not destintations
12:02:40  *** wakou2 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:03:03  <oskari89> cargod*st
12:03:13  <oskari89> Anyway, that seems to be the case
12:03:26  <oskari89> Can somebody else reproduce that bug?
12:03:26  <planetmaker> it disappears like any open windows...
12:03:54  <oskari89> Ah, so :D
12:03:56  <oskari89> I see
12:04:15  <oskari89> From the layer settings
12:04:19  <planetmaker> ^
12:04:39  <planetmaker> It's IMHO a sane choice to default to 'off' for loading or entering a new game
12:04:51  <planetmaker> the distribution network graph eats LOADS of CPU
12:05:20  <planetmaker> and it's as easily switched on as a station window is opened
12:06:10  <oskari89> Okay

12:07:42  *** Lakie [] has quit [Quit: .]
12:10:18  <maddy_> is there any way for the game to remember what windows were open, and resume that state when loading a savegame?
12:13:14  <planetmaker> no
12:14:30  <planetmaker> You need to solve the problem to restore the windows depending on the savegame you load as you might not be able to restore the windows if another game is loaded.
12:15:09  <planetmaker> Maybe you could create a file which remembers windows depending on savegame file or so... There was a discussion some time ago about that, dunno whether here or at tt-forums
12:15:37  *** DanMacK [] has joined #openttd
12:15:42  <DanMacK> Hey all
12:16:44  <maddy_> what about remembering just open windows, not related to the savegame?
12:16:55  <planetmaker> maddy_, which windows are not related?
12:16:58  <planetmaker> hi DanMacK
12:17:07  <maddy_> generic ones
12:17:18  <planetmaker> yeah. the toolbar. that's it
12:17:24  <maddy_> I guess newgrfs and settings affect them
12:17:46  <planetmaker> vehicle purchase windows? depend on actual depot
12:17:50  <planetmaker> company info? specific
12:17:54  <planetmaker> map info? specific
12:18:24  <maddy_> I normally keep "construct rail" toolbar, and visibility toolbars open all the time, for example
12:19:29  <planetmaker> yes... but rail toolbar is accessible by 'a' and needs no arrangement (IMHO)
12:19:50  <planetmaker> I only arrange depot views and maybe secondary map views or maybe goal progress
12:20:03  <planetmaker> or sign list
12:20:10  <maddy_> yeah
12:24:07  <V453000> seriuosly you can open most of the toolbars with hotkeys very quickly
12:24:11  <V453000> (e.g. A)
12:24:28  <V453000> ctrl X for visibility
12:24:28  <planetmaker> and you can define hotkeys yourself :-)
12:24:33  <V453000> plus that
12:24:36  <planetmaker> hotkeys.cfg ftw
12:24:54  <planetmaker> I always need add one for road toolbar
12:33:23  <maddy_> yeah I should learn hotkeys, that would help a lot
12:37:23  <planetmaker> :-) I couldn't live without. Yet still, it may make sense to save windows. It "just" needs decent thought beforehand on how to handle that

13:09:50  <Eddi|zuHause> one issue i always had was that the "sticky" button reset itself when switching toolbars (which happens very often)
13:10:36  <Eddi|zuHause> the sticky state should be shared between all toolbars that replace each other

16:19:04  <frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: i just make all toolbars sticky, and save the stickyness in the config
16:19:35  <frosch123> no idea why you would want to switch between stickyness of the sametoolbar, but not switch between different toolbars
16:20:38  <Eddi|zuHause> what?
16:21:03  <frosch123> you said you want to keep the stickyness when switching between road an rail
16:21:08  <Eddi|zuHause> the option to save stickyness wasn't around last time i played
16:21:32  <frosch123> so, you didn't play in the last months :p
16:21:53  <Eddi|zuHause> no, i didn't play in the last years :p
16:22:15  <Eddi|zuHause> my last game was with yacd
16:22:30  <Eddi|zuHause> and the one before that with chill's pp
16:22:47  <frosch123> yacd is newer than cpp ?
16:23:06  <Eddi|zuHause> until it fell  behind with grf support

16:29:48  <planetmaker> don't you wanna bring out a firs version of CETS? :-)
16:30:16  <Eddi|zuHause> a what?
16:30:23  <frosch123> cets was started to compensate for dnf being released
16:30:49  <Eddi|zuHause> CETS was never formally announced :p
16:31:12  <V453000> I wouldnt call myself formal either
16:31:23  <Eddi|zuHause> i mean: there's no forum thread about it
16:32:05  <V453000> I wouldnt say that is what makes a newGRF legit
16:32:14  <V453000> purr has no thread either :P
16:32:57  <frosch123> are you sure?
16:33:18  <V453000> well I didnt make any
16:33:31  <planetmaker> the more announcement, the more legit. It doesn't need release nor taster
16:33:40  <planetmaker> just screenshots and show-cases
16:33:43  <planetmaker> and much talking

17:15:25  <frosch123> reasonable answer?
17:16:49  <Eddi|zuHause> but his question on window width intrigues me: was the size changed, or did we add some stuff so it doesn't fit anymore?
17:17:10  <frosch123> i would guess that the size is defined by the text length
17:17:28  <frosch123> and noone thought about keeping the length, because it generally makes no sense to head for a specific length
17:17:53  <frosch123> you can resize the window in 1 pixel steps, not in tiles sizes

17:23:15  <Miauw> Uh, I have another question
17:23:33  <Miauw> Will putting block signals in front of intersections with roads stop crashes?
17:23:48  <Miauw> (Crashes with busses and so, that is)
17:23:51  <Eddi|zuHause> no
17:23:54  <planetmaker> no
17:24:12  <Miauw> Hm, alright.
17:24:13  <planetmaker> path signals close the level crossing, if the path is reserved through it
17:24:19  <Miauw> Is there any way to advoid that?
17:24:27  <Eddi|zuHause> putting down path signals will close the crossing early so vehicles have more time to leave
17:24:36  <Eddi|zuHause> but that turns double tracks into a death trap
17:24:36  <Miauw> Oh, I see.
17:24:49  <Miauw> Yeah, I'm using double trakcs D:
17:24:51  <Miauw> *Tracks
17:25:05  <Eddi|zuHause> only reliable way to prevent crashes is a bridge

18:18:07  <Rubidium> frosch123: that's the deluxe AI
18:18:45  <Eddi|zuHause> it heavily depends on how restrictive you interpret "somewhere"

18:18:57  <Eddi|zuHause> and "ai"

18:21:58  <andythenorth> hi hi
18:22:43  <maddy_> I take the simple answer is no then
18:22:55  <Rubidium> no AI in OpenTTD since 2009 / 0.7 is similar to the original AI. The original AI has free terraforming and an extra rating bonus for stations

18:23:04  *** TheMask96 [] has joined #openttd
18:23:19  <Rubidium> since 0.7 no AI has free terraforming or a rating bonus at stations, thus the orginal AI can't exist there
18:23:40  <maddy_> ok
18:24:01  <Rubidium> (whereby original == AI roughly equal to the one in the deluxe version of Transport Tycoon)
18:24:34  <V453000> play without AI, problem solved

18:24:44  *** valhallasw [] has joined #openttd
18:25:00  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah. the moments are rare when i agree with V453000 :p
18:25:30  <V453000> party time
18:25:34  <maddy_> I play mostly without ai's
18:26:06  <maddy_> but I appreciate the fact that you can easily find a problem to a solution
18:26:36  <V453000> actually yes
18:26:42  <maddy_> I should say a solution to a problem :)
18:26:54  <V453000> doesnt matter you were understood
18:26:55  <Eddi|zuHause> it's way funnier the other way around :p
18:28:14  <maddy_> any problem/issue/question relating to openttd can always be solved by simply not playing openttd :)
18:28:34  <Eddi|zuHause> what if the problem is not playing enough openttd?
18:28:49  <maddy_> good point, that would be the exception
18:29:08  <V453000> I didnt say you should play less OpenTTD
18:29:09  <MNIM> Pffft.
18:29:15  <V453000> I said AIs are worthless
18:29:16  <MNIM> this is #openttd
18:29:25  <MNIM> a problem to the solution can always be found
18:30:05  <maddy_> V453000: well, but your solution is that everyone should play with same parameters as you do
18:30:08  <Eddi|zuHause> ok, here
18:30:16  <Eddi|zuHause> 's a solution: my little pony
18:30:22  <Eddi|zuHause> what the hell is the problem to that?
18:30:23  <V453000> no, my solution is people should not use AIs
18:31:41  <maddy_> I do agree with that somewhat actually
18:32:12  <V453000> the only thing AI does is produce wtf clutter which cost map space and mainly CPU
18:32:14  <V453000> gain = 0
18:32:29  <V453000> "feeling you play with other people?" go press the Multiplayer button
18:32:59  <Eddi|zuHause> i've played about 3 multiplayer games
18:33:17  <maddy_> I've played probably 0 multiplayer games
18:33:18  <V453000> well you dont have the need to use AI either
18:33:18  <peter1138> the only thing multiplayer does is produce wtf clutter which cost map space and mainly CPU
18:33:36  <Rubidium> ... and I can't fast forward
18:33:41  <Eddi|zuHause> no, it also uses bandwidth :p
18:33:46  <V453000> the only thing multiplayer does is interaction/communication with other players?
18:33:54  <V453000> also why fast forward :D
18:34:06  <frosch123> why interact with others :p
18:34:13  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, i never fast forward... i spend most of my games paused

18:37:14  <Miauw> Is there any way to forbid towns from expanding roads onto railways?
18:37:32  <maddy_> I think there is an advanced setting for it
18:40:03  <Miauw> Can't find an advanced setting
18:40:11  <Miauw> Uh, nevermind
18:40:30  <maddy_> you found it
18:41:08  <Miauw> Towns are allowed to build grade crossings?
18:41:11  <Miauw> That one?
18:41:33  <maddy_> yeah think so
18:41:36  <V453000> yes, but it is wise to prevent them from building roads too,
18:41:58  <Miauw> Why?
18:42:05  <V453000> if you want to grow them, you are taking care over them and want to build the roads your way, if not, why let them grow for no reason
18:42:23  <Miauw> I dunno. Seeing them grow is pretty fun.
18:42:23  <V453000> costs cpu/space
18:42:26  <Miauw> I've just started this game.
18:42:45  <V453000> well if you enjoy looking at the towns growing then I guess its okay XD
18:43:30  <maddy_> rail tiles cost cpu/space too :)
18:43:41  *** zooks [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:44:19  <Miauw> Besides, my PC is rather good.
18:44:28  <Miauw> So I doubt that I'll have to build efficient layouts to minimize CPU usage.
18:44:34  <V453000> yes but playing the game without rails is like staring at empty tiles
18:44:47  <V453000> your PC isnt good enough :) trust me
18:45:16  <Miauw> This game is that CPU intensive?
18:45:20  <maddy_> Miauw: in any case, glad you found this great game
18:45:26  <Miauw> I am too :P
18:46:01  <V453000> it uses "only" one core so . :)
18:46:02  <maddy_> it's cpu intensive if you run 5k trains like V453000 does, not for other players
18:48:39  <maddy_> is there a patch (or other way) to automate management of train groups? I am thinking something like automatically putting trains in a group based on the 1st station in their orders
18:49:49  <Eddi|zuHause> the game is not CPU intensive if you stick to the orgiginal limit of 80 trains and 360 vehicles (wagons, engines, ...) in total
18:49:50  *** Progman [] has joined #openttd
18:50:09  <peter1138> And 256x256 maps.
18:50:22  <peter1138> Hmm, did we ever get extra height levels?
18:50:45  <Eddi|zuHause> which was barely enough on a 486 DX2 66
18:50:56  <Eddi|zuHause> peter1138: there's a patch for that
18:51:10  <peter1138> Yeah, I seem to remember bits of it making their way through.
18:54:14  <V453000> peter1138: I would not say 256*256 is always not cpu intensive :P
18:54:31  <peter1138> *and*
18:54:48  <peter1138> Things that help :p
18:54:57  <V453000> :P
18:55:16  <peter1138> :P
18:55:30  <Eddi|zuHause> so, 66MHz were enough for 360 vehicles and 256^2 maps. now we have 2048^2 maps and 64k vehicles, so you need 66*8*8*180 ~ about 800GHz, without any NewGRFs (houses, industries, ...)
18:55:34  <V453000> 256*256
18:56:18  <Eddi|zuHause> assuming everything scales linearly
18:57:18  <Miauw> I have no idea how much 800 GHz is.
18:57:55  <V453000> you probably have arouns 3GHz
18:58:01  <Miauw> Oh.
18:58:01  <V453000> around*
18:58:06  <Miauw> Well, I don't think it scales linearly, then.
18:58:14  <Miauw> Because that's a rather obscene amount of CPU
18:58:23  <frosch123> cpu power is also not measured in ghz
18:58:26  <Eddi|zuHause> we did a few optimisations in the last decade
18:58:33  <frosch123> esp. not when comparing cisc with risc processors
18:58:46  <maddy_> but don't cpu speed double like every 2 to 1.5 years? so, assuming openttd doesn't bloat much, you can always wait 1.5 years and play bigger games
18:58:52  <Miauw> I think I'll be fine.
18:58:57  <Miauw> And if I'm not, I'll report back :P
18:59:00  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, there are mips and flops and stuff :p

19:00:23  <Eddi|zuHause> but openttd can't make a use of those other processors
19:00:32  <maddy_> Eddi|zuHause: yes, you are right, and since openttd uses only single core, we are screwed

21:24:52  <frosch123> well, it's certanily more complex than what i saw at the cs department of my university :p
21:25:15  <^Spike^> :)
21:27:17  <frosch123> the first lecture of the first master cs course i addeded was likely one of the core revelations in my life
21:27:27  <frosch123> *attended
21:27:45  <planetmaker> in what way?
21:28:24  <frosch123> well, after school i couldn't decide whether i should study cs or technical math
21:28:33  <^Spike^> somehow reading that... did get me in a mode of: Missing this... that etc etc :)
21:28:34  <frosch123> so i started both, and made both "vordiplom"
21:29:01  <planetmaker> hm :-)
21:29:10  <frosch123> though mainly i did math, and did the cs stuff thinking "year, it's vordiplom, they have to do the basics somewhen"
21:29:26  <planetmaker> :D
21:29:27  <frosch123> so, i went into hauptdiplom with the mood: yay, let's finally get started
21:29:51  <frosch123> and then spend the second half of the first hour with: what have i been thinking, the studends are still the same
21:30:13  <^Spike^> :)
21:30:17  <frosch123> basically the lecturer told us what he planned for the year
21:30:37  <frosch123> i thought wtf, and then spent the rest of the hour planning the rest of my studies :p
21:30:50  <planetmaker> :DD
21:31:42  <frosch123> actually, i kind of felt stupid for not ever thinking it through before
21:31:55  <frosch123> i just always stopped at, oh well its "vordiplom" :p
21:32:46  <frosch123> though the more specialised cs courses were interesting nevertheless
21:33:41  <^Spike^> well when i started i realized... ok doing a bachelor in IT... all they are gonna learn me is programming....
21:33:46  <^Spike^> and they didn't disappoint...
21:33:57  <^Spike^> even worse.. first year it was like: yeah write it any way you want...
21:34:05  <^Spike^> second year: We're gonna do it differently.... OO
21:34:13  <^Spike^> eh.. wtf? why didn't we learn that last year?

21:36:09  <frosch123> they scared off the other participants?
21:38:45  <^Spike^> :)
21:39:13  <^Spike^> i think merely the fact that for a point we would need to spend 28 hours... and IT ppl just would finish the course in a single day... doesn't help :D

21:57:49  <frosch123> and noone noticed, until way later a collegue of the corrector read it, and asked me :p
21:57:56  <^Spike^> lol
21:59:06  <planetmaker> hehe :-)

23:05:24  <Eddi|zuHause> what the hell is an LD50?
23:05:42  <Supercheese> Dosage that kills half the test subjects on average
23:05:46  <Supercheese> LD = Lethal Dose
23:06:07  <Supercheese> I had to look it up too :P
23:07:15  <Eddi|zuHause> so it's lethal to carry twice your weight in paper?
23:07:35  <Supercheese> for half of the people tested
23:07:48  <Supercheese> Strong folks could carry more, weak folks less
23:07:52  <Eddi|zuHause> that doesn't sound quite right
23:07:52  <Supercheese> of course, it's just a joke
23:08:23  <Supercheese> I don't think it was so much "carry" as "have dropped on"
23:08:48  <Supercheese> The poor fellow looked rather squished
23:09:16  <Supercheese> although the stack is a bit too organized for a drop test...
