04:54:53  <Supercheese> I knew the new NARS would generate some interesting comments, but sheesh....
04:58:09  <Sylf> oh come on, the minute anyone removed any features, good or BAD, the world comes to an end.
04:58:12  <Sylf> We all know that.
05:05:18  <Pikkaphone> regearing was what made nars good, obviously.
05:05:41  <Pikkaphone> I still want to know what about the gg1 and challenger, though.
05:07:23  *** looptrooper [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:14:47  *** supermop [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:16:18  <Supercheese> can GG1 be regeared?
05:16:20  <Supercheese> perhaps he means that
05:16:24  <Supercheese> can/could
05:18:22  <Pikkaphone>  it could
05:18:52  <Pikkaphone> between 90 and 100mph from memory. Made bugger all difference.
05:19:44  <Supercheese> yeah the primary places regearing was useful was when wagon speed limits were lowering your max speed anyway, so might as well gear down for more TE
05:19:54  <Supercheese> express trains never had speed limit problems really
05:20:17  <Supercheese> maybe he was using GG1s to haul freight :P
05:21:09  <Pikkaphone> there are plenty of 65mph freight locos in the set though
05:21:27  <Supercheese> indeed
05:21:39  <Supercheese> his statements were perplexing

06:50:04  <Supercheese> Is there any way to extract vehicle ID other than decompiling the newgrf?
06:50:11  <Supercheese> presuming no other documentation
06:52:21  *** Pikkaphone [] has joined #openttd
06:55:40  <Supercheese> Newgrf debug window doesn't seem to have it
06:59:21  <Pikkaphone> have what?
07:00:25  <Supercheese> the vehicle ID
07:00:40  <Supercheese> From earlier: Is there any way to extract vehicle ID other than decompiling the newgrf?

07:23:44  *** Pikkaphone [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:24:35  <Supercheese> too bad we can't decompile to NML
07:24:50  <Supercheese> that would be quite the chore to code I imagine
07:25:04  <V453000> XD
07:25:22  <NGC3982> Morning.
07:27:28  <Supercheese> Ouch apparently NUTS and YETI do not have, "a sprinkle of magic".
07:27:56  <Pikka> bonsoir andythenorth
07:27:58  <V453000> what does that mean Supercheese
07:28:13  <Supercheese>
07:29:56  <V453000> I think Alberth excludes those two from that :P
07:30:15  <Supercheese> oh
07:33:26  <planetmaker> Sylf, for future, can you not zip the attachment when uploading to our bug tracker? :)
07:33:47  <Sylf> ohok
07:34:19  <planetmaker> it always adds an additional step to download, unzip and save in needed places
07:34:48  <planetmaker> and compressing savs and pngs is mostly pointless anyway
07:35:02  <NGC3982> Isn't there a stable branch in svn co?
07:35:23  <andythenorth> Pikka: NARS is all hand-written nfo?  No code generator? o_O
07:35:31  <Pikka> yes
07:35:36  <planetmaker> svn has it all. But not the trunk repository
07:35:53  <peter1138> Edit One: What's New Coke?
07:35:54  <peter1138> hahaha
07:36:00  <V453000> how do you think nuts is written andythenorth :P
07:36:16  <Pikka> monkeys at typewriters, V
07:36:30  <V453000> :P
07:37:02  <NGC3982> What is the right svn repository for stable? The readme does not say.
07:37:05  <NGC3982> If that's a word.
07:37:38  <andythenorth> Pikka: was thinking about adding the regeared units to the buy menu
07:37:38  <planetmaker> and the releases in like
07:37:41  <andythenorth> the foamers would love it
07:37:47  <NGC3982> Thanks.
07:37:48  <planetmaker> you might need to adjust path without ssh
07:37:56  <andythenorth> SD40-2 (coal drag service)
07:38:05  <andythenorth> SD40-2 (manifest service)

07:38:21  <andythenorth> dibble the weight too
07:38:35  *** TomyLobo [] has quit [Quit: Standby mode...]
07:38:44  <Pikka> yes but where is the livery of the one I have a photo of on my bedroom wall? This set is so incomplete.
07:38:56  <peter1138> 07:24 < Supercheese> too bad we can't decompile to NML
07:39:13  <peter1138> That would be like decompiling to C. It is possible but not particularly useful.
07:39:43  <Supercheese> would beat the hell out of NFO
07:39:48  <peter1138> No, it wouldn't.
07:39:50  <Supercheese> ....
07:39:53  <Pikka> Andy: also, what about the GG1 and the Challenger?
07:40:05  <NGC3982> PM: For some reason, it feels easier for me to simply download the source from the site.
07:40:06  <Supercheese> NML is readable
07:40:11  <andythenorth> Pikka: what about them? o_O
07:40:22  <Pikka> exactly! What about them?
07:40:23  <NGC3982> I plague you with enough Linux guidance.
07:40:28  <peter1138> Supercheese, decompiled NML wouldn't particularly be readable.
07:40:50  <peter1138> Like decompiled C isn't particularly readable.
07:40:52  <Pikka> Look, I'm sorry if I'm being a pessimist, but I'm speaking my mind. What happened to the GG1? What about the Challenger? In my view, 2.03 was more advanced than UKRS2 of now.
07:40:53  <Supercheese> Well, perhaps
07:41:01  <andythenorth> well
07:41:15  <andythenorth> the only bad thing is that he thinks you did it because you ran out of time
07:41:19  <Supercheese> I do not know enough to predict what decompiled NML would look like
07:41:20  <andythenorth> or aren’t smart enough
07:41:34  <Pikka> yes but the GG1 and challenger are both still in the set.
07:41:38  <Supercheese> I suppose I am over-assuming
07:41:53  <andythenorth> Pikka: shameful
07:42:00  <andythenorth> you should make them bigger
07:42:01  <planetmaker> svn:// | NGC3982
07:42:02  <andythenorth> and flashing
07:42:34  <planetmaker> Supercheese, there's a test case for that in ancient FIRS
07:42:40  <Pikka> I should remove everything except the GG1 and challenger is what I should do.
07:42:47  <planetmaker> unfortunately the conversion code vanished along with yexo vanishing
07:42:51  <andythenorth> Dear player
07:42:58  <andythenorth> Thankyou for your valued opinions.
07:43:07  <andythenorth> When making an omelette, eggs must be broken.
07:43:09  <andythenorth> Yours,

07:43:45  *** sla_ro|master [slamaster@] has quit []
07:43:58  <V453000> XD
07:44:34  <Supercheese> Well, I did like generational vehicles, regearing, and the lot. But I had to acknowledge and work around the multiple issues they brought with them
07:44:57  <Supercheese> HEP I never liked
07:45:39  <Supercheese> newer NARS is better NARS
07:46:17  <planetmaker> <-- like that, Supercheese

07:48:32  <Supercheese> ah, which if any is decompiled?
07:49:19  <NGC3982> If i install an initial stable source, and then do a svn update. Does it only check for the newest stable version?
07:49:33  <NGC3982> Note, if the initial install was not a svn co.
07:50:50  <planetmaker> NGC3982, for switching between releases you need to use svn switch, not svn update
07:50:55  <andythenorth> Pikka: I was serious about the gearing options in buy menu btw :P
07:52:19  <planetmaker> Supercheese, this is the first version where the de-compiled code was added:

07:55:43  <NGC3982> PM: I see. I found it in the wiki.
07:56:52  <Supercheese> hah, interesting rounding error: "prospect_chance: 0.749999999942;"
07:58:06  <NGC3982>
07:58:09  <NGC3982> This is still a thing.
07:58:40  <NGC3982> Starting a source compiled version (latest trunk or 1.4.4) makes dedicated server unable to start after closing it the first time.
07:59:37  <NGC3982> It changes the IPv4 from to <my external ip>:3979. It does not help to change it in the (only) cfg available, and i need to remove the config each time.
08:03:01  <peter1138> All versions are compiled from source...
08:03:09  <NGC3982> Manually*.
08:03:36  <peter1138> Are you saying it doesn't happen with our provided binaries, or that you haven't tried them?
08:03:44  <NGC3982> I have never encountered it when using apt-get or dpkg.
08:04:30  <peter1138> [server_bind_addresses] is blank for me
08:05:16  <NGC3982> "f ="
08:06:40  <peter1138> Is all it contains?
08:06:47  <NGC3982> Yes
08:06:59  <NGC3982> I removed it, and it does not make any difference.
08:09:03  <peter1138> Hmm. When I do openttd -D, I get every message after "Detected broadcast addresses:" (and the IPs) twice...?
08:09:52  <NGC3982>
08:10:15  <NGC3982> And;
08:11:02  <peter1138> Try again with server_bind_addresses blank?
08:11:24  <NGC3982> That works - the first time.
08:11:50  <NGC3982> If i empty server_bind_addresses, the server starts and it tells me it's listening on
08:12:19  <NGC3982> Closing the server and starting it with the same command again recreated the problem, and server_bind_addresses turns "f =".
08:13:17  <peter1138> NGC3982, try openttd -c openttd.cfg -D
08:13:42  <NGC3982> That works.

10:27:54  *** andythenorth [~Andy@] has joined #openttd
10:34:35  <Dakkus> Hello! I'm trying to compile a version of OpenTTD, because I want to play with daylength alteration on my Mac.
10:34:59  <Dakkus> The compiling went just fine for a long time, but crashed with screenshot.cpp.
10:35:29  <Dakkus> I'm not terribly interested in the ability to take screenshots, so I'd like to just disable the feature to get the game to compile. How?
10:36:19  <__ln__> "crashed"
10:37:13  <Dakkus> Well, hanged, died, stopped, ended, failed.
10:37:22  <Dakkus> I don't really know which verb to use.
10:37:33  <Dakkus> But in any case, I didn't get to say make install.
10:38:02  <Dakkus> [SRC] Compiling screenshot.cpp
10:38:02  <Dakkus> /Users/dakkus/Desktop/ottd/s2013pp/src/screenshot.cpp: In function ‘void SaveMinimap()’:

10:38:09  <Dakkus> make[1]: *** [screenshot.o] Error 1
10:38:11  <Dakkus> make: *** [all] Error 1
10:39:05  <peter1138> Take it up with your patch-pack maintainer.
10:39:06  <Eddi|zuHause> that is not part of the official code, so you must talk to the person who made that patchpack
10:39:30  <Dakkus> Okay, I was just hoping there would be some generic way of disabling code.
10:39:41  <andythenorth> comment it out :D
10:39:48  * andythenorth sorry, unhelpful
10:39:51  <andythenorth> :P
10:40:00  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, "#if 0" and "#endif" :p
10:40:08  <Dakkus> What I'm gonna do now is this: mv src/screenshot.cpp src/screenshot.cpp.old; touch src/screenshot.cpp
10:40:10  <Eddi|zuHause> or "/*" and "*/"
10:40:11  <Dakkus> Should work?
10:40:20  <peter1138> Unlikely.
10:40:24  <Eddi|zuHause> probably not
10:40:59  <Dakkus> Seems to compile past that point just fine, but you think I'm gonna have a defunct game in the end?
10:41:04  <peter1138> It won't link.
10:41:17  <Dakkus> Sorry, didn't understand.
10:41:33  <__ln__> It will not l-i-n-k.
10:41:40  <Dakkus> Ah, thanks! ;)
10:41:49  <Dakkus> You mean like in Zelda?
10:41:53  <__ln__> Exactly.
10:42:00  <Eddi|zuHause> if someone does not understand something, repeat it louder and slower :p
10:42:19  <b_jonas> It's dangerous to go alone.
10:42:29  <Dakkus> Hm, now:
10:42:29  <Dakkus> /Users/dakkus/Desktop/ottd/s2013pp/src/viewport.cpp:1447: warning: ‘void ViewportAddLandscape_new()’ defined but not used
10:42:39  <Dakkus> I don't think I can just disable ViewPort.
10:42:59  <Dakkus> Is there any way of getting the time to run slower in the game so that it will actually function on my computer? ;)
10:43:00  <andythenorth> either the patchpack is borked, or you need better ./configure flags for OpenTTD
10:43:19  <andythenorth> Dakkus: find a mac binary of a patchpack with daylength patch?
10:43:24  <andythenorth> dunno if there are any
10:43:30  <Dakkus> Found one, it didn't run.
10:43:39  <andythenorth> can you compile trunk openttd on OS X?
10:43:47  *** Pikka [] has joined #openttd
10:43:59  <Dakkus> Could try just to find out where the problem lies.
10:44:36  <Pikka> the answer lies in the soil
10:45:57  <Pikka> andythenorth, you're running the NARS2 addon show then? I'm sure that will make lots of forumites very happy. ;)
10:46:06  *** sla_ro|laptop [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:46:19  <andythenorth> Pikka: yes or no
10:46:48  <Dakkus> Is there, BTW, a reason why vanilla OpenTTD doesn't include the daylength option?
10:46:56  <Dakkus> Or does it and I just don't know?
10:46:59  <andythenorth> it doesn’t work
10:47:09  <andythenorth> and none of the many patches can make it work
10:47:17  <Dakkus> How does the non-working manifest itself?
10:47:17  <andythenorth> and it’s a stupid idea also
10:47:22  <Dakkus> How come+
10:47:24  <Dakkus> ?
10:48:15  <Dakkus> I'm always annoyed by locomotives coming and going obsolete before I get a chance to use them.
10:48:20  <andythenorth> which ones?
10:48:54  <andythenorth> in newgrfs? o_O
10:48:58  <andythenorth> or in the default game?
10:49:01  <Dakkus> Well, in my previous game with the Finnish trainset, I managed to build maybe one or two trains of the type Sm1.
10:49:09  <andythenorth> ok, so that’s a defective newgrf ;)
10:49:25  <Dakkus> Dunno, they appear on the year they are supposed to appear, around 1968.
10:49:31  <andythenorth> one problem with ‘daylength’ is that different people want different things from it
10:49:35  <Dakkus> And the Sm4 comes out at around 1996.
10:49:49  <andythenorth> do you use build-while-paused?
10:50:06  <Dakkus> And the 30 years were spint twiggling my airline system to function.
10:50:12  <Dakkus> Nope.
10:50:31  <Dakkus> I could also just edit the newgrf so that the trains would appear much later.
10:50:42  <andythenorth> peter1138, rename ‘build-while-paused’ to ‘daylength’? o_O
10:50:54  <andythenorth> hmm
10:51:02  <Pikka> build-while-daylength
10:51:06  <andythenorth> could we have a pause mode where the ticks keep ticking
10:51:08  <Dakkus> So, count from the year when I'm beginning the game and change a locomotive that should appear 38 years into playing the game to appear 5*38 years into playing the game.
10:51:15  <andythenorth> but the date is unchanged
10:51:21  <Dakkus> Pikka: Sounds good ;)
10:51:35  <andythenorth> Dakkus: yes, modding the newgrf is the most reliable solution
10:51:44  <andythenorth> it doesn’t break industry production etc
10:52:10  <Pikka> or just turn on vehicles never expire and don't build any sm4s until you've got enough sm1s? :)
10:52:14  <andythenorth> that too
10:52:17  <Dakkus> So, I should change the introduction year and also the lifetime.
10:52:29  <Dakkus> So that instead of some 20 years the locomotive would keep functioning for 5*20 years.
10:52:31  <andythenorth> openttd already fucks around with newgrf vehicle intro dates for randomisation?
10:52:44  <andythenorth> we just put a multiplier into the random(17) or whatever?
10:52:50  <andythenorth> including 0
10:52:58  <andythenorth> for those who really want fixed dates
10:53:01  <Dakkus> Pikka: Nah, I know myself, that would never work with me :D
10:53:08  <peter1138> 30 years game-time wasn't enough to use an engine?
10:53:24  <Dakkus> Not with my way of playing.
10:53:40  <peter1138> That's 6 *hours* of playing time.
10:53:41  <Dakkus> Spending too much time making the track layout perfect ;)
10:53:47  <andythenorth> build-while-paused
10:53:53  <Dakkus> Sounds non-bad :)
10:53:57  <Pikka> puild while baused
10:54:00  <Dakkus> But I still would like the game to take longer.
10:54:13  <andythenorth> build-while-paused
10:54:19  <Dakkus> Build-while-paused is indeed a solution.
10:54:26  <andythenorth> I used to use build-while-paused for everything
10:54:35  <Sacro> yeah but multiplayer isn't really feasble
10:54:40  <andythenorth> I can’t any more because it keeps defaulting to ‘off'
10:54:49  <andythenorth> Sacro: yes, multiplayer isn’t really feasible (anyway)
10:54:54  <andythenorth> MP is a BAD FEATURE
10:55:10  <Pikka> "realism" and MP are incompatible, at least
10:55:15  <andythenorth> full of griefers :D
10:55:18  <andythenorth> and de-syncs

10:56:28  <Pikka> andy: do you customise newgrfs for your own use?
10:56:34  <andythenorth> Pikka: I have been known to
10:56:43  <andythenorth> some of the ones I have customised include:
10:56:48  <andythenorth> FIRS, Squid, CHIPS
10:56:50  <Pikka> ridiculous forum thread.
10:56:54  <andythenorth> the best
10:58:34  <Pikka> also apparently the current wisdom from reddit is that to increase industry production, your trains need to reach 117 km/h.
10:59:23  <Jinassi> why not 88mph then..and supply 1,2 jigawatts too
10:59:36  <__ln__> *jigo
11:00:34  <andythenorth> Pikka: isn’t that true?
11:00:39  <andythenorth> based on station rating?
11:00:56  <Pikka> >60% of production transported
11:01:10  <Pikka> is the only thing that affects production increase probability, afaia?
11:01:25  <Jinassi> *jiga
11:01:28  <andythenorth> yair, but you have to allow for move_cargo_to_station or whatever it is called
11:01:33  <andythenorth> which depends on rating :P
11:01:37  * andythenorth dunno :P
11:01:49  <Pikka> only indirectly
11:02:52  <Pikka> I'm also fairly sure that nothing in OpenTTD is measuring how fast the trains actually go, ratings only care about the stated top speed.
11:03:00  <andythenorth> ah that
11:03:03  <andythenorth> dunno

13:23:13  *** Klanticus [~quassel@] has joined #openttd
13:28:54  <peter1138> It's a nice limit.
13:32:34  <Quatroking> eh
13:32:37  <Quatroking> 16 is nicer tho
13:32:40  <Quatroking> because powers of two
13:33:06  <__ln__> what's nice about powers of two
13:33:36  <planetmaker> Quatroking, 15 is powers of two... the server needs an ID, too. And counting starts with 0.
13:33:58  <Quatroking> oh, so the server occupies a company slot
13:33:59  <Quatroking> ok
13:34:15  <planetmaker> or rather it needs some way it can be expressed as 'neutral'
13:34:15  <ginko_> Can I change with how much money I start on a new map?
13:34:42  <ginko_> It's 200k by default (openTTD 1.4.4)
13:34:48  <Quatroking> you can take a loan
13:35:15  <ginko_> But I can't say "set starting money to 2 Million"?!
13:35:29  <planetmaker> not that much, no
13:35:33  *** ginko_ is now known as ginko
13:35:34  <Quatroking> you could recompile
13:35:39  <argoneus> ayy
13:35:46  <Quatroking> and there's always the cheat menu
13:36:06  <ginko> k not a big problem though
13:36:08  <ginko> Thanks :)
13:36:34  <planetmaker> there's probably no good reason to disallow larger intitial loans other than "then the game is totally pointless wrt money". But hey, it's that already...
13:37:02  <V453000> you could change costs by basecosts, and change your currency
13:37:07  <V453000> make everything super cheap / half price for example
13:37:15  <V453000> but make the currency look like it is the same
13:37:52  <V453000> so if you have 500 000 max, you can make it 2 000 000 with everything priced /4
13:38:14  <V453000> setting up basecosts is probably somewhat tedious since there is a lot of parameters :)

13:39:15  <Quatroking> ginko, are you having trouble making money?
13:39:40  <ginko> planetmaker if you start with such a loan, you would have to pay high interests I assume
13:40:04  <__ln__> is it still the case that if you start a game from, say, year 2030, all the vehicles and stuff cost fortunes, but the max initial loan is still £100,000 or so?
13:40:11  *** Suicyder [~Suicyder@] has joined #openttd
13:40:14  <Quatroking> on a loan of 2000000 you pay like 40000 interest a year I believe
13:40:25  *** liq3 [] has quit []
13:40:27  <ginko> Quatroking Not really, just asking, it's the thought of "building the perfect infrastructure", and therefore to start off with enough money to start building it
13:40:27  <__ln__> so you can barely buy anything with even the max loan.
13:40:33  <Eddi|zuHause> the interest is a joke
13:40:39  <V453000> the interest rates are very low

13:55:25  <ginko> A free day doesn't mean anything if it is spent procrastinating while being depressed
13:55:37  <argoneus> don't toss around the word depression
13:55:45  <argoneus> being frustrated about something != depression
13:55:52  <ginko> I know what depression is
13:55:56  <ginko> And it's no fun
13:55:59  <argoneus> ah, ok :<
13:57:18  *** Suicyder [~Suicyder@] has joined #openttd
14:01:32  <ginko> argoneus Good thing though, what you did
14:01:47  <ginko> "Depression" is a word used to soon by so many that don't understand what it really implies
14:02:02  <argoneus> yeah
14:02:07  <argoneus> it irritates me when people are like
14:02:11  <argoneus> "doh I'm so depressed today"
14:02:42  <ginko> Which is a fair saying
14:02:59  <ginko> It's a figure of speech that doesn't imply that one is clinically depressed I'd say
14:03:12  <ginko> But yeah, the word depression, many people don't get it
14:03:16  <argoneus> I dunno
14:03:21  <argoneus> it seems to me like if people were saying
14:03:25  <argoneus> "Dammit, I have AIDS today again"
14:03:33  <argoneus> makes about the same amount of sense to me
14:04:25  <ginko> No, cause there is a difference between having an illness, and having symptoms connected to a given illness
14:04:40  <ginko> Being depressed is just a temporary state of mind if you are not clinically depressed
14:05:00  <ginko> You say "I am depressed today", you don't say "I have a depression today"
14:05:09  <argoneus> I guess
14:05:38  <blathijs> I guess the word just has taken on a range of meanings in common language usage
14:05:40  <ginko> "I couldn't sleep", you don't say "I had insomnia last night"
14:05:47  <ginko> Yeah, every word has
14:05:48  <argoneus> people do :(
14:06:01  <ginko> People say "I had insomnia" last night :D
14:06:15  <V453000> I say: fuck cares, get happy or do something :)
14:06:33  <ginko> I guess this is meant to be provocative
14:06:44  <blathijs> And if a word means two things, it can be frustrating for people that care for one of those things and don't want that thing to be seen as equal to the other meaning of the word
14:07:08  <ginko> Because to say to a depressed person he should just snap out of it, is like saying to a cancer patient, he should just feel more energetic and that's it
14:07:41  <V453000> if someone is depressed then they probably need to find something to live for
14:07:45  <blathijs> "Hunger" is a similar word. People often say, "you're not hungry, people in Africa are hungry. You just have an apetite", but that also disregards the fact that a word can have more thant one specific meaning
14:07:47  <V453000> which would bring them happiness
14:07:50  <argoneus> V453000: or they need pills
14:07:55  <argoneus> unfortunately
14:08:03  <argoneus> depression is mostly a chemical process
14:08:10  <V453000> ok :d
14:08:15  <ginko> V453000 there is a seriously big difference between "knowing what's wrong" and changing your state of mind
14:08:21  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't know where you went to school "from 8 to 12", but a regular school day around here was 7:30 to 13:30, occasionally 14:30
14:08:27  <peter1138> V453000 is a perfect example of completely misunderstanding depression.
14:08:32  <V453000> :>
14:08:35  <V453000> thanks peter1138
14:08:58  * argoneus has known someone with severe psychological problems
14:09:03  <argoneus> saying "snap out of it" only makes it worse :<
14:09:13  <planetmaker> quite so
14:09:34  <ginko> It's like let's say you have a insane fear of dogs because of something that happened in your childhood, you can't just turn that off, even though rationally you know it's stupid. You can change it, but is a process, not just a "rationally I know it's stupid, so let's dump that fear", it's the same for people who are depressed for various reasons
14:09:45  <Eddi|zuHause> and this school day included a warm lunch (if you chose to have one)
14:09:49  <ginko> + what argoneus said, it being able to be a lack of certain chemicals
14:10:00  <argoneus> it's kind of scary
14:10:04  <peter1138>
14:10:05  <argoneus> some medicine these people have to take
14:10:11  <argoneus> messes up the body real good
14:10:17  <argoneus> and they have a chance of having random heart attacks etc
14:10:23  <ginko> Of course
14:10:24  <argoneus> and it's addictive as fuck
14:10:28  <ginko> Body and Mind always go together
14:10:31  <argoneus> it's literally drugs
14:10:51  <Eddi|zuHause> and typically you would have out-of-school activities around 2 times per week in the afternoon
14:10:51  <peter1138> Medicine for depression allows people to function. It doesn't make them better.
14:10:52  <ginko> Every medication is a pro vs con
14:11:09  <argoneus> it's like taking a painkiller for your brain
14:11:10  <ginko> And with clinically depressed, the pros in many cases outweigh the cons by quite some margin
14:11:50  <__ln__> it's been said electricity is more effective than medicine.
14:12:02  <ginko> I personally don't take any, but know people who do
14:12:28  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: i kinda doubt generic statements like that.
14:12:47  <argoneus> the problem is
14:12:51  <argoneus> that with psychological issues
14:12:56  <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: for treating depression. not for anything.
14:12:58  <argoneus> it's not like a cold that people know what virus causes the cold
14:13:00  <argoneus> and can prescribe things
14:13:06  <argoneus> every "depressed" patient is a unique case
14:13:12  <argoneus> and reacts differently to medicine
14:13:23  <ginko> Every person is unique
14:13:28  <argoneus> it's too broad of a topic to cover in a channel about trains
14:13:38  <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: many cases of depression have physical causes that are very removed from the symptom
14:13:55  <ginko> Not just when we talk about depression. I mean there are allergic reactions to things like normal antibiotics, so you never treat two patients exactly the same I guess
14:14:16  <argoneus> well
14:14:30  <argoneus> antibiotics just kill bacteria until you're better
14:14:39  <argoneus> which is why you need to eat yoghurts etc
14:14:45  <ginko> Eddi|zuHause It's also the other way around. Many Illnesses people have, have psychological causes (like lack of energy, being tired all day, feeling weak, chronically having a flue, et cetera)
14:14:47  <argoneus> because your stomach and bowel bacterias are kill
14:15:36  <argoneus> but at least
14:15:40  <argoneus> when you have some bacterias
14:15:48  <argoneus> the doctors can at least tell what kind of bacterias
14:16:01  <argoneus> but if you have depression, they can't just look in your brain and find it
14:16:09  <Eddi|zuHause> in the end, psychic treatments are often of the form "we try different ones until one works"
14:16:10  <argoneus> it can be a lot of things
14:16:24  <Eddi|zuHause> because the chains of cause and effect are often not fully understood
14:16:34  <argoneus> it's like people
14:16:38  <argoneus> who have epilepsy or such
14:16:44  <argoneus> and then they undergo an unrelated procedure
14:16:48  <argoneus> and suddenly they don't have epilepsy
14:16:52  <argoneus> and no one knows why
14:17:13  <argoneus> it's scary
14:17:54  <ginko> There are two very great books called Bad Science and Bad Pharma by Ben Goldacre, that basically let you know in detail, about placebo effect, and how to properly set up studies, mistakes people make, how bad the media works with there "science reporting" and so forth
14:18:10  <ginko> This whole debate reminds a little bit about the chapters on homeopathy and placebo in the book "Bad Science"
14:18:12  <argoneus> the sad thing is
14:18:16  <argoneus> that media is a business
14:18:17  <ginko> So, honorary mention at this point
14:18:21  <argoneus> and the goal of a business is to make money
14:18:40  <argoneus> so there's a lot of click baiting and information twisting
14:19:17  <argoneus> at least from my experience, that is, not all sources are like that probably
14:19:45  <ginko> For example: People with a certain kind of stomach ache where told, that they were given medicine, but not only were they not given a placebo, but a medication, that would under normal circumstances worsen their symptoms. But they were told it would help them
14:20:00  <ginko> In the end it still helped them (worse than a placebo or the real medication would have, but it still helped)
14:20:07  <Eddi|zuHause> ginko: there is no medical doubt that the placebo effect is real.
14:20:16  <ginko> Really shows you how "Alternative healers" can give whatever the fuck they want
14:20:32  <Eddi|zuHause> funny thing about the placebo effect: it works better on highly educated people
14:20:45  <ginko> I did not know that ;)
14:20:52  <ginko> But if true, interesting indeed
14:22:49  <ginko> One last question before I have to go: Just out of interest, what is the demographic of this channel / openTTD userbase in general? Mostly Americans, or Europeans, ...?
14:23:00  <argoneus> mostly dutchmen with long names
14:23:04  <ginko> :D
14:23:26  <argoneus> and two slavs
14:28:20  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't know about now, but a few years ago it was about equally divided between germans, dutch and english, a bit of other europeans, and marginal in other places
14:29:21  <V453000> I think that stayed +-
14:29:50  <planetmaker> don't underestimate the CZ faction ;)
14:30:43  <planetmaker> but probably 2/3 account for Dutch, German and British here
14:31:14  <Xaroth|Work> \o/
14:31:29  <Xaroth|Work> if it aint dutch, it aint much!
14:31:45  <planetmaker> better put more sand on your dikes ;)
14:31:58  <__ln__> do danes still count as dutch?
14:32:10  <Eddi|zuHause> the game gained some casual audience in america due to youtube/streaming/whatever exposure, but that hasn't really reflected upon this channel
14:32:13  <argoneus> I sure hope not __ln__
14:32:14  <Xaroth|Work> only if they are great danes.
14:32:14  <planetmaker> to the same degree that pi equals 3, yes
14:33:38  <argoneus> dutch is an interesting language though
14:33:51  <argoneus> weird words like "gedeerijk" (just made that up)
14:33:57  <argoneus> (looks dutch enough)
14:34:13  <Xaroth|Work> now if you had said Gedeeltelijk...
14:34:17  <Xaroth|Work> that would actually be dutch :P
14:34:20  <argoneus> heh
14:35:01  <argoneus> I hope it doesn't mean anything naughty
14:35:09  <argoneus> like "I fukd ur mom last nite"
14:35:32  <Xaroth|Work> it means Partially
14:35:38  <argoneus> ah
14:35:40  <argoneus> I'll remember that :D
14:35:49  <argoneus> I only know one valid phrase, but it's kinda naughty :(
14:35:54  <__ln__> the amount of hungarians has decreased since the early days.
14:36:21  <planetmaker> probably a language thing ;)
14:36:23  <argoneus> I asked a dutchman to teach me something dutch, and he taught me "argoneus heeft lol met zijn lul"
14:36:26  <argoneus> ;-;
14:36:57  <V453000> hungarians got hungry
14:36:57  <argoneus> apparently it's informal or something
14:37:10  <argoneus> like, nothing you'd find in a dictionary
14:37:47  <Eddi|zuHause> i don't know any dutch, but that sure sounds nasty :p
14:38:09  <argoneus> I thought you were a dutchman Eddi|zuHause :O
14:38:27  <Eddi|zuHause> you haven't been listening very closely, then.
14:38:27  <planetmaker> you think that of many people from their Eastern neighbour ;)
14:38:39  <argoneus> are you german then
14:38:40  <argoneus> ?
14:38:50  <ginko> Eddi|zuHause Sounds good :)

14:39:03  *** Belugas [] has quit [Quit: On snow, everyone can follow your traces]
14:39:20  <Eddi|zuHause> there went our entire canadian demographics
14:39:29  <planetmaker> oh noes!
14:39:34  <planetmaker> @seen danmack
14:39:34  <DorpsGek> planetmaker: danmack was last seen in #openttd 4 days, 8 hours, 55 minutes, and 48 seconds ago: <DanMacK> Hey all
14:39:35  <argoneus> probably went to hockey practice
14:39:41  <V453000> planetmaker and Eddi are both from the Moon
14:40:03  <argoneus> oh, I was actually wondering about this a while ago
14:40:07  <planetmaker> nah, I'm from Mars. But they haven't found my home yet ;)
14:40:09  <argoneus> if someone killed someone else on the ISS
14:40:12  <Eddi|zuHause> i'm somewhere along the way between V453000 and planetmaker
14:40:13  <argoneus> which country's laws would apply?
14:40:27  *** Hazzard [] has joined #openttd
14:40:31  <planetmaker> argoneus, the space treaty would apply
14:40:48  <argoneus> is that a set of space laws?
14:40:50  <argoneus> never heard of it
14:41:00  <Eddi|zuHause> argoneus: similar to how laws are treated in open seas etc.
14:41:11  <planetmaker> and inside the vessel the law of the country which whose flag that vessel flies. Like for marine vessels
14:41:28  <argoneus> so basically
14:41:34  <Eddi|zuHause> i suppose each part of the ISS has a country attached to it
14:41:41  <planetmaker> it does so, yes
14:41:43  <Eddi|zuHause> so it depends on which room they wer in
14:41:46  <argoneus> if a president flew to china, and they killed him on the chinese airport in his airplane
14:41:53  <argoneus> he'd be judged by the president's country's laws?
14:42:07  <argoneus> because the plane "carries" the clay of the country?
14:42:27  <planetmaker> not when it's landed or docked
14:42:58  <argoneus> hmm
14:43:12  <planetmaker> law is tricky there :) Your vessels law only applies outside the 12 miles zone
14:43:19  <planetmaker> in no-mans land
14:43:25  <argoneus> a-are you a law graduate?
14:43:29  <planetmaker> not at all
14:43:41  <Eddi|zuHause> let's imagine an unknown person with likely ukranian nationality shoots down a malaysian airplane with mostly dutch people being killed. which country's laws will he be judged in?
14:43:43  <planetmaker> but you get the lessons when you do a skipper license
14:43:51  <V453000> pm is everything graduate
14:43:57  <argoneus> Eddi|zuHause: is that hypothethical
14:43:58  <planetmaker> :P
14:44:07  <Eddi|zuHause> very hypothetical
14:44:12  <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: none
14:44:14  <argoneus> I think the plane wouldn't be found
14:44:19  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, obviously the DenHaag court ;)
14:45:16  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, but as every participating nation has signed the geneva convention... there can't be much disagreement. Theoretically
14:46:21  <Eddi|zuHause> well, if they theoretically ever found out who actually fired the shot.
14:47:43  <argoneus> it was kind of stupid though
14:47:46  <argoneus> to fly over a warzone
14:47:48  <Eddi|zuHause> last i heard was that they're still trying to get various (mostly US) intelligence agencies to actually release any information
14:47:51  <argoneus> unnecessary deaths :/
14:48:50  *** Myhorta [] has joined #openttd
14:48:52  <argoneus> I don't want to wear a tinfoil hat, but I'd imagine the agencies already know who did it, just don't want to kill their relations
14:49:28  <argoneus> it's hard to imagine that in today's day and age a plane would just disappear without anyone knowing what actually happened
14:49:58  <Eddi|zuHause> like, imagine a malaysian plane went missing and no trace was ever found?
14:50:17  <argoneus> I think someone should know
14:50:25  <argoneus> I mean it's a huge airplane with all sorts of devices and backup devices on it
14:51:07  <argoneus> it's actually mind boggling how much goes into airplane security
14:51:23  <argoneus> the airplanes are checked all the time and have all sorts of safety measures and backup systems and procedures
14:51:31  <argoneus> plus the guy in the tower can see it all the time
14:51:39  *** Hazzard_ [] has joined #openttd
14:51:59  <argoneus> so unless there was some sort of interference that prevented the communication, it shouldn't be able to just disappear
14:52:14  <argoneus> (imho)
14:54:07  <planetmaker> argoneus, "how much goes into airplane security" is mostly a joke
14:54:07  *** Hazzard_ [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
14:54:33  <Eddi|zuHause> well, in the recent years there is a huge discrepancy between actual security and "PR security" (which is more like supersticion)
14:54:49  <argoneus> well
14:55:08  <planetmaker> it's mostly show to deter any people even trying. And then things happen like you can drive onto the airfield with a van and trailer which goes totally unchecked by just showing briefly a badge you applied for half a year earlier
14:55:26  <argoneus> airplanes today can fly even if the engines die, they have backup radios, they have TCAS (not to crash into other airplanes), they have a 3D terrain monitor
14:55:28  <planetmaker> I could have gone there with tons of explosives and remote or timed detonators
14:55:32  <Eddi|zuHause> no plane will ever be safer because you had to take off your shoes and can't bring that bottle of water on the plane
14:55:37  <argoneus> oh
14:55:38  <planetmaker> with direct access to the big planes flown by DHL, UPS etc
14:55:46  <argoneus> you mean airplane security with the people inside the plane
14:55:48  <argoneus> not the airplane itself
14:56:02  <argoneus> well
14:56:10  <argoneus> if someone sneaks up a bomb on board, and explodes the entire plane
14:56:16  <argoneus> then it'll probably disappear and shatter into pieces
14:56:22  <argoneus> but a satellite should be able to have logs of such a thing?
14:56:30  <planetmaker> and one of my friends, a chemist, keeps telling me that he can bring down any plane with two bottles of clear liquid of 50ml each
14:56:36  <planetmaker> I've no reason to doubt him
14:56:41  <argoneus> I'm sure he's on a list somewhere
14:56:44  <argoneus> and us too, now
14:56:59  *** Hazzard_ [] has joined #openttd
14:57:04  <Eddi|zuHause> argoneus: well the dangerous thing is that any effort that goes in this PR bullshit will actively prevent real security
14:57:33  <argoneus> well, one thing I stand by
14:57:35  <planetmaker> I'm surely on a list ;) When sending encrypted e-mails I usually use titles like 'uranium', 'bomb', ... ;)
14:57:39  <argoneus> if airplanes flew without passengers
14:57:47  <argoneus> they'd be the safest means of transport in the world
14:57:51  <argoneus> even safer than walking across the road
14:58:06  <planetmaker> define 'safety'
14:58:19  <Eddi|zuHause> like this "war on drugs" where they spend exorbitant amounts of money on, and that actually CREATES the income-margins for the drug lords
14:58:22  <argoneus> safety meaning that if you go from A to B you are less likely to die
14:58:24  <argoneus> than crossing the road
14:58:58  <Eddi|zuHause> the more money they spend on reducing the opium harvest in afghanistan, the higher the opium harvest gets
14:59:45  <planetmaker> "the price of freedom is eternal vigilance" ;) But what to look out for? And how?
15:00:09  <Eddi|zuHause> which even makes sense, because the EU uses that exact same mechanism to drive up the prices for food products

21:17:21  *** Hazzard_ [~Hazzard@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:18:38  <planetmaker> before you dive in big into sprite creation, give me sprites for one type so that I can learn on them
21:25:47  <andythenorth> hang on
21:27:01  <andythenorth> hmm
21:27:15  <andythenorth> usually it’s easiest to duplicate spritesheet, and append _snow
21:27:23  <andythenorth> then all spritesheet layouts etc are identical
21:27:40  <andythenorth> also it’s just an overlay in photoshop layer then
21:27:43  * andythenorth makes a test
21:29:42  <planetmaker> hm... it could also be the sprites just being an overlay. Just the snow. would work. I *think*
21:30:00  <planetmaker> though complete replacement probably is easier to code
21:30:12  *** JacobD88 [] has joined #openttd
21:30:27  <planetmaker> but please don't give me snow transition sprites to code in nfo :)
21:32:24  <andythenorth> complete replacement
21:32:38  <andythenorth>
21:32:47  <andythenorth> lots of the sprites are borrowed from FIRS :P
21:32:56  <andythenorth> and FIRS has 99% complete snow support
21:33:05  <andythenorth> you’ll need a ground tile too
21:33:10  <andythenorth> probably can be stolen from FIRS
21:33:17  <andythenorth> but /me needs bed
21:33:49  <andythenorth> I think there are 2 or 3 kinds of tiles in use mind
21:34:03  <andythenorth> the grain tile might not use ‘standard’ templating for cargo tiles
21:34:12  <andythenorth> because it’s fixed to a limited number of cargo types
21:38:46  <planetmaker> ok, I see
21:41:48  <andythenorth> cargo piles probably don’t need snow anyway tbh
21:43:17  <andythenorth> also sleep time
21:43:20  <andythenorth> bye ;)

21:54:15  <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause, out of interested, what did you do to eddi-nml that it requires a display?
22:00:03  <frosch123> someone has an idea why a simple while loop out-performs __builtin_bcmp by factor 2? (with -O2)
22:00:11  <frosch123> i feel i am missing some compiler option :p
22:00:30  <frosch123> factor 3 even
22:01:22  <Rubidium> SSE?
22:02:29  <planetmaker> frosch123, could the compiler have optimized-away your loop?
22:03:59  *** jinks is now known as Guest1140
22:03:59  *** jinks_ is now known as jinks
22:04:01  <frosch123> <- it's a pretty naive strstr (but without NUL termination) implementation
22:04:39  <frosch123> i mean i am happy the the compiler optimises the loop so nice, but i would still expect the __builtin_bcmp to be at least as good
22:05:01  <frosch123> i mean, what's the point of it otherwise?
22:05:10  <planetmaker> maybe it's not compiled with --mach=native?
22:05:17  <planetmaker> *march
22:05:34  <planetmaker> but... yes, factor 2 or 3 is *a lot*
22:05:51  <planetmaker> maybe it's the actual function call that is expensive?
22:06:22  <frosch123> i would expect it to be inlined :p
22:07:39  <frosch123> march=native changes nothing
22:08:29  <planetmaker> that's default, isn't it?
22:09:04  <planetmaker> with --march=i386?

22:13:38  <frosch123> using -O3 -msse makes the loop marginally faster, the bcmp stays the same :p
22:13:50  <frosch123> *sse2
22:14:14  <planetmaker> <-- so... that's how you tell the British PM that you invade part of the commonwealth :P But unimportant... House of Commons is waiting :P

23:01:14  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: what do you mean?
23:01:23  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: i did nothing, just pull, merge, and push
23:01:42  <planetmaker> I just wonder about the strang build log...
23:02:19  <planetmaker> But as it's custom (just like nml itself), I'll see what differences are there
23:02:42  <planetmaker> but cxfreeze failed due to not being able to create a window.
23:02:47  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: it seems it runs fine, makes regression fine, and tries some wine crap that i have no idea what it does
23:03:01  <planetmaker> creating windoze binary
23:03:08  <planetmaker> which failed
23:03:22  <Eddi|zuHause> why does that call pythonw, anyway, instead of python?
23:03:42  *** Hazzard_ [~Hazzard@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:03:56  <planetmaker> because cxfreeze? :)
23:04:26  <Eddi|zuHause> i have no idea what that does.
23:04:37  <Eddi|zuHause> but i'd use pythonw for GUI apps, and python for console apps
23:04:39  <planetmaker> basically create an exe from the python code
23:05:56  <Eddi|zuHause> they have differences in stdout/stderr handling and stuff
23:07:28  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: anyway, it can't be anything i have ever touched.
23:08:24  <planetmaker> hm, k
23:08:37  <planetmaker> something for another day to investigate anyway :)
23:08:44  <planetmaker> g'night :)
23:08:58  <Eddi|zuHause> planetmaker: i think we had something weird happen the last time i updated eddi-nml as well :p
23:09:17  <planetmaker> it's always weired :P
23:09:57  <Eddi|zuHause> but i changed only like 3 files
23:10:26  <Eddi|zuHause> and i did not modify them in ages
23:10:48  <Eddi|zuHause> all i ever do is pull, merge, commit, push
23:11:20  <Eddi|zuHause> where pull and push have different adresses in the config
