00:00:36  <peter1138> Is vcpkg used for the dependencies for the official binaries?
00:13:21  <TrueBrain> Yup
00:13:34  <TrueBrain> That is what makes this so strange :(
00:14:38  <TrueBrain> Stackoverflow suggested it is thread related and that the binaries are mixed in mode
00:14:51  <TrueBrain> But I don't understand MSVC :p
00:18:45  <peter1138> Hmm, windows-static
00:29:55  <peter1138> Meh, if I tried x64-windows-static myself, then cmake doesn't find it.
00:31:38  <peter1138> Oh right. That shitty thing where I have to restart VS Code.
00:33:03  <peter1138> !
00:33:11  <peter1138> Success. It no longer crashes.
00:34:10  <DorpsGek> [OpenTTD/OpenTTD] PeterN commented on issue #8814: Assertion failed downloading content from BaNaNaS.
00:38:59  <peter1138> Well shit. It fixed libpng, but not zlib :(
00:41:22  <peter1138> Oh gods. No, zlib is fixed.
00:41:36  <peter1138> I still had a breakpoint left there from last time... so it still "stopped" haha
00:48:27  <spnda> I found somewhere online that it was caused by /MDd and fixed with /MTd or something similar. So something thread-related
00:51:35  <peter1138> No, they're both multithreadead.
00:51:37  <peter1138> -a
00:52:02  <peter1138> /MD Causes the application to use the multithread-specific and DLL-specific version of the run-time library.
00:52:08  <spnda> well its not my conclusion. Was just something I found on stackoverflow from someone having the issue with zlib
00:52:11  <peter1138> /MT Causes the application to use the multithread, static version of the run-time library.
00:53:40  <peter1138> /MDd links MSVCRT.lib, /MTd links LIBCMTD.lib.
00:53:48  <peter1138> Sounds a bit like different runtimes...
00:54:56  <peter1138> string(REPLACE "/MD" "/MT" ${MSVC_FLAGS} "${${MSVC_FLAGS}}")
00:54:57  <peter1138> Hmm
00:56:02  <peter1138> So if my x64-windows is shared, but we are forcing /MT(d), could that cause a mix up?
00:57:04  <peter1138> And so, switching to x64-windows-static works because then it's all /MTd in vcpkg land too.
00:57:57  <peter1138> I imagine that replace is not the correct method.

06:46:11  <andythenorth> is it done?
06:51:23  <reldred> Not quite, doesn't compile atm but I don't know if that's because it's inherited a bug from upstream that's already been fixed or something.
06:51:37  <reldred> But I am awfully fond of multi-tile depots.
06:52:09  <reldred> I do enjoy playing with it quite a bit

08:05:43  <peter1138> Also it's 5 minutes past work o'clock.
08:11:03  <nielsm> I'm looking at this NWidget code again and it makes me cry
08:11:41  <nielsm> why is the NWidgetLeaf class implementing 24 different classes
08:17:10  <peter1138> What are you up to?
08:17:58  <nielsm> that volume slider widget, make it a real widget
08:18:28  <nielsm> and the nested window system is just fighting against any kind of reasonable extensibility
08:20:05  <peter1138> Not really, it's just designed for what was needed at the time. It shouldn't be too hard to extend NWidgetCore?
08:21:49  <peter1138> I've got ideas about changing how dimensions are specified and stored.
08:22:49  <peter1138> So far I've got padding/pip spacing be rescaled when needed, but it's not 100% yet.

08:46:02  <peter1138> ^ And precisely that kinda of change improves my WIP patch...
08:48:37  <nielsm> it'd be nice to have the nested widget part lists changed into some kind of actual nested structure, taking advantage of C++ initializer lists
08:50:09  <nielsm> so you could do e.g.: NWidgetHorizontal({ NWidgetCloseBox(COLOUR_GREY), NWidgetCaption(COLOUR_GREY, STR_WHATEVER_WINDOW_CAPTION) })
08:50:21  <peter1138> Yes.
08:51:05  <nielsm> and the entire thing results in some kind of factory class instance
08:51:41  <peter1138> Some checks were not successful
08:51:42  *** michi_cc_ has joined #openttd
08:51:42  <peter1138> 8 successful and 4 cancelled checks

08:58:29  <peter1138> Drop down lists were meant to be part of some grander plan for genericizing stuff, but it turned out they were a weird special case due to the pop-up "window".
08:59:05  <peter1138> That's why they are all alone in that directory, lost amongst the headers...
09:00:13  <peter1138> I guess other than dropdown_widget.h, the dropdown stuff should be in the main directory after all.
09:03:10  <andythenorth> how to explain cargo aging crap in buy menu?
09:03:17  <andythenorth> 'Comfort level'?
09:03:33  <reldred> Just call it cargo aging?
09:03:52  <reldred> I'm personally not a fan of inventing new terms for things.
09:04:13  <andythenorth> Well...what are the units?
09:04:21  <andythenorth> 'slow', 'fast' etc?
09:04:59  <nielsm> Comfort level: Standing/hard seats/soft seats
09:05:20  <reldred> Well when you're coding the .grf, what are you doing to cargo aging? Is it a bonus? A minus? Percentage based?
09:05:28  *** FLHerne has joined #openttd
09:05:43  <reldred> Whatever term that is used should be applicable to cargo as well, in-case you go down that route later on.
09:05:54  <reldred> Either in Horse or Hog or whatever.
09:06:21  <andythenorth> I've removed all the cargo aging crap from freight
09:06:28  <reldred> Yeah I know
09:06:35  <reldred> But in case you revisit it later on.
09:06:40  <andythenorth> Nah it's a load of shit
09:06:45  <andythenorth> :D
09:06:57  <reldred> Also keeping in mind you very well may set the standard for terminology/etc that other set authors may copy from.
09:07:07  <andythenorth> seems not
09:07:19  <andythenorth> all this was solved around about 2013
09:07:29  <andythenorth> I thought I was innovating here, but all this is done already in multiple sets
09:08:28  <reldred> Perhaps, but your implementation of your set is probably the most consistent and polished of all the vehicle sets I've used over the last decade and a half.
09:08:40  <andythenorth>
09:08:59  <peter1138> Is this property 2B?
09:09:17  <andythenorth> yes
09:09:21  <andythenorth> and explaining it to player
09:09:33  <andythenorth> "in words of one sentence"
09:09:46  <peter1138> So in OpenTTD since 1.2.
09:09:49  <reldred> Let me have a look
09:09:51  <peter1138> 10 years.
09:09:57  <andythenorth> yeah around for a long time
09:10:12  <peter1138> So it's not really surprising that it's not you innovating by using this attribute :p
09:10:16  <andythenorth> no
09:10:34  <FLHerne> andythenorth: Apparently "yacht transport ship" is a thing?
09:11:15  <andythenorth> There are better ones than that
09:11:33  <andythenorth> It's a thing to relocate yachts to one end of popular sailing routes
09:11:39  <andythenorth> or between regions
09:11:52  <andythenorth> that one looks a bit...sinky? :)
09:12:08  <andythenorth>
09:12:44  <andythenorth> quite cool no? :)
09:12:44  <reldred> I dunno, I'm looking at it and just thinking 'Cargo aging', maybe for your set just use "Very Slow, Slow, Medium (Default), Fast, Very Fast"
09:12:56  <reldred> Define those values however the hell you like.
09:13:30  <andythenorth> what about if we give the vehicle the aging chart for the currently refitted cargo?
09:13:34  * andythenorth not even trolling here
09:13:43  <andythenorth> describing it in words is meaningless
09:13:55  <LordAro> andythenorth: neat. i knew they existed for transporting partially built hulls, but not full ships
09:13:58  <andythenorth> it's not the number of tiles, it's the number of days, and that changes with newgrf
09:14:08  <reldred> I don't think that's too difficult a concept, I mean if you make up a new term for it you then have to explain that term as 'cargo aging rate' anyway, just call it cargo aging.
09:14:31  <Eddi|zuHause> reldred: i'm thinking that description would fall unter "technically correct", but a player wouldn't know what that means
09:14:37  <andythenorth> Or I just skip all this and put 'role'
09:14:42  <andythenorth> Role: short routes
09:14:48  <andythenorth> what is 'short'?
09:14:57  <andythenorth> Role: urban
09:15:36  <andythenorth> Horse Metro already does this actuall
09:15:42  <andythenorth> Role: high capacity urban
09:15:43  <reldred> Eddi|zuHause: you reckon? TrueBrain and I had this argument about terrain generation. I think sometimes people think players are dumber than what they actually are. I think it's *ambiguous terms* that causes issues with players.
09:15:55  <Eddi|zuHause> ticket class: "local", "long distance", "luxury"
09:15:57  <andythenorth> Player then turns up with 2 stations on opposite sides of 128 tile city
09:16:06  <andythenorth> Runs metros, shows I suck
09:16:14  <andythenorth> oh dear
09:16:31  <reldred> Well the problem with roles andy is dickwagon thought 1024 tiles was a reasonable 'commuter' route... LOL
09:16:36  <andythenorth> Ambiguous terms are murder
09:16:47  <andythenorth> Oh wait, no I'm being ambiguous there :P
09:17:04  <andythenorth> The less confusing thing would be:
09:17:14  <andythenorth> Payment bonus: 1.5x
09:17:21  <reldred> I mean if you write anything in that field other than cargo aging, at some point you're going to have to explain that it is cargo aging. May as well just be upfront about it.
09:17:28  <Eddi|zuHause> reldred: just the word "commuter" is already ambiguous enough...
09:17:31  <reldred> I personally still like the 'Suitable for' field
09:17:45  <reldred> That should still stick around
09:17:52  <nielsm> andythenorth: how about just straight up "suitable distance: 20-50 tiles" something like that
09:18:01  <andythenorth> it's not a distance though :)
09:18:06  <andythenorth> otherwise I would
09:18:16  <nielsm> suitable travel time: X days
09:18:17  <reldred> Eddi|zuHause: yeah that's what I'm getting at.
09:18:28  <reldred> Prop 2B is measured in 'ticks' though.
09:18:34  <andythenorth> travel time requires knowing the payment curve set by the newgrf
09:18:45  <andythenorth> guess which FIRS type grf changes the payment curvers for pax?
09:18:47  <andythenorth> curves *
09:19:03  <reldred> But even just 'medium' 'slow' 'very fast' at least gives a point of reference vs. other wagons in your set.
09:19:06  <andythenorth> explaining crap in the buy menu is .... the worst :D
09:19:40  <andythenorth> I've already repainted the fast aging coaches to reduce player confusion
09:19:53  <andythenorth> maybe looking different will help show difference
09:20:30  <reldred> Yeah, looking more distinct is always a good thing anyway.
09:20:39  <andythenorth> Goes it add Horse parameter for cargo aging factor?
09:20:44  <reldred> Not that your sprites were 'bad'
09:20:45  <andythenorth> then player can define what short is
09:21:20  <andythenorth> How many tiles for short route: x
09:21:25  <FLHerne> no
09:21:26  <andythenorth> days not tiles
09:21:32  <reldred> Yeah, define with variables what slow/medium/fast is? then they can't complain LOL
09:21:33  <andythenorth> How many days for short route: x
09:21:39  <andythenorth> How many days for long route: y
09:21:42  <andythenorth> interpolate x and y
09:22:07  <andythenorth> Because Players Definitely Need This Level of Control yes/no?
09:22:13  <reldred> Maybe just go with your gut and define that as the 'medium' setting and then extrapolate from there? I mean as I've said before I've had no problems with 2.21.1
09:22:34  <reldred> On the size maps I play at least.
09:22:38  *** Elouin has joined #openttd
09:22:53  <reldred> Which are anywhere from 256x1024 up to 2k x 4k
09:23:13  <andythenorth> Comfort level: LOL
09:23:15  <reldred> I also partially solved the issue for my games by using daylength patch in JGR
09:23:19  <andythenorth> Comfort level: Doge
09:23:34  <andythenorth> I don't even want to think about what daylength does to this payment rate
09:23:35  <Timberwolf> You're way too altruistic. I've broken stuff outright often enough to realise that if you tell players something is happening, they'll find a way to believe it is.
09:23:51  <andythenorth> I don't care about the players :)
09:23:53  <reldred> It's all an illusion *wibbly wobbly hands*
09:23:53  <andythenorth> I care about it being good
09:23:54  <Timberwolf> It's nice if that's based in some mechanic which does influence the thing in question :)
09:24:08  <peter1138>  When you try to clear up confusion and other person just gets more confused >_<
09:24:26  <andythenorth> Generally this is why I don't put much info in buy menu ^ :)
09:24:38  <andythenorth> People turn it into weird post-hoc rationalisations
09:24:39  <reldred> You hit a good sweet spot.
09:24:40  <andythenorth> and rumours
09:25:02  <andythenorth> Mostly the whole set is 'pick train, run train, make money'
09:25:09  <Timberwolf> I wonder if anyone assumes the little vehicle bios I put in have a gameplay effect...
09:25:11  <andythenorth> 'if not making money, scrap train, or git gud'
09:25:22  * andythenorth loads timberwolf trains
09:25:29  <reldred> I mean that's why I think you should just be upfront about cargo aging. Whatever units you use is kinda irrelevent so long as the set as a whole uses those units consistently.
09:25:41  <Timberwolf> I'm surprised I've not had any proper foamers complain, "that's blatantly incorrect" (other than a couple of typos)
09:25:45  <andythenorth> Timberwolf I want steep gradients for the 76!
09:25:52  <andythenorth> How do I get steeper gradients!
09:26:00  <andythenorth> 2 height levels per tile!
09:26:17  <FLHerne> andythenorth: That's always been the way of OpenTTD
09:26:18  <Timberwolf> I'd say "play Locomotion", but that's only available for narrow gauge.
09:26:28  <reldred> And then just maybe have parameters to /1 /2 /4 /8 or x2 x4 x8 the values afterwards to shut up idiots like dickwagon who want to make a '1k commuter route'.
09:26:29  <FLHerne> Players who *really* care about being optimal RTFM
09:26:56  <andythenorth> Timberwolf the engine sound is not accurate on the 26
09:27:02  <FLHerne> Players who just want to play go by trial-and-error and come up with their own irrational rules of thumb
09:27:04  <andythenorth> this is a good game :)
09:27:06  <reldred> I'm pretty picky when I sit down to build trains for my routes in Horse.
09:27:34  <reldred> Sometimes I pick wrong and it hurts, but that's part of the fun.
09:27:36  <Timberwolf> Agh, I still need to do something with sounds.
09:27:47  <Timberwolf> The Class 450/444 need to make their annoying and stupid noise.
09:27:53  <andythenorth> Timberwolf so I need to only use the class 33 in summer months on pax!
09:28:00  * andythenorth needs complicated timetabling
09:28:03  <FLHerne> Timberwolf: ...have you heard a 700?
09:28:10  <Timberwolf> Which set had proper heating rules? PKP?
09:28:40  <andythenorth> Snail has braking rules
09:28:49  <andythenorth> I haven't tried PKP
09:29:03  <andythenorth> I have considered brake type, and heating type as factors
09:29:06  <andythenorth> brrrrrrrrr
09:29:07  <Timberwolf> Between Trains and Road Vehicles, the vehicle bios represent some 400-odd times I managed to successfully battle the urge to write something silly.
09:29:14  <andythenorth> well done
09:29:18  <peter1138> Brr indeed.
09:29:24  <Timberwolf> Well, except for "2 horses".
09:29:37  <andythenorth> oh you did the wagons too
09:30:37  <andythenorth> I did not resist silliness, but I kept it short, and docs only
09:30:37  <Timberwolf> And the horse in a Zorb from Road Vehicles, but if you allow that to turn up in your game you're not exactly expecting a factual description of the real world prototype.
09:30:40  <TrueBrain> someone on Steam is asking if we can add a method to make the GUI bigger; it is too small for his 1080p screen :P
09:31:05  <reldred> tell him to buy glasses
09:31:30  <peter1138> biggui ;(

09:33:14  <andythenorth> Timberwolf couldn't resist, it's a very dry silliness :P
09:33:15  <reldred> Huh, now it's fine.
09:33:32  <Timberwolf> Oh, is the Leopard and Foster Bus sounds being swapped an OpenTTD thing or an OpenSFX thing?
09:35:07  <Timberwolf> Oh yes, OpenSFX. This:
09:35:52  <LordAro> we did a new release, no?
09:37:11  <Timberwolf> I should check to see if I have the latest, I saw that commit but not sure if the version I have is before or after it.
09:37:29  <LordAro> 1.0.1 fixed it, iirc
09:37:35  <DorpsGek> [OpenTTD/OpenTTD] adamcirillo commented on issue #8963: Black Bars during gameplay
09:37:43  <Timberwolf> Ah, cool.
09:38:03  <peter1138> Bloody Google Nest. It keeps turning my thermostat down because it's Spring...
09:38:15  <LordAro> lol
09:38:31  <peter1138> When it's 0 outside, 17 feels rather cool inside.
09:39:06  <andythenorth> so should I make a train payment calculator for Iron Horse html docs?
09:39:28  <andythenorth> it would be the most boring version of Train Whack! ever
09:39:32  <andythenorth> Train Accountant!
09:39:38  <andythenorth> Train Bean Counting!
09:39:45  <peter1138> reldred, there are some windows that don't scale very well, so depends what you have open at the time.
09:40:13  <Timberwolf> Very important and realism-breaking otherwise.
09:40:45  <andythenorth> Because I always check the cargo payment rate before building a route
09:40:50  <reldred> Eh, Ive had no problems with the 2x scaling of UI and Font on a Surface Go with a small 10" very high DPI panel, or my home desktop with a 3440x1440 panel. And the latter has a similar pixel density to most desktop 1080p panels.
09:40:52  <andythenorth> count the number of tiles on my fingers
09:41:10  <peter1138> Also, the github actions stuff refers to opengfx 0.6.0, not sure what that affects.
09:41:16  <reldred> andythenorth: bout a few
09:41:26  <andythenorth> I count in binary
09:41:33  <LordAro> peter1138: ?
09:41:41  <andythenorth> when I get to 10, the route requires planes
09:41:45  <reldred> Heh
09:42:05  <peter1138>
09:42:08  <reldred> Gotta say, some days working on nfo I end up counting binary on my fingers...
09:42:23  <Timberwolf> There seems to have been some edict in what eventually became the Leyland empire, that all vehicles produced had to emit more noise from the gearbox than the engine.
09:47:37  <andythenorth> ok so either I call it Cargo Aging: [Very fast | Fast | Normal | Never]
09:47:54  <andythenorth> or Comfort Level: [Very low | Low | Normal | High]
09:48:04  <Timberwolf> When electric cars make fake engine noises there should be a nostalgic option for "transverse-mounted A series".
09:48:24  <andythenorth> this is only for pax cars
09:48:31  <glx> trying x64-windows-static-md triplet was a good test case, as it fails at link time
09:48:37  <reldred> Just call it cargo aging. You're only going to have to explain to someone later andy that the 'comfort level' is cargo aging so why not just deal with it now.
09:48:40  <andythenorth> all freight wagons have cargo aging 'normal' no exceptions, does the buy menu also need to state 'Carging Aging' to avoid doubt?
09:48:55  <reldred> I'd only state it on the vehicles that need it stated?
09:49:06  <reldred> I'm just thinking about Hog2 or whatever comes down the line.
09:49:14  <andythenorth> Wagons don't state 'Power: 0hp'
09:49:20  <reldred> Exactly
09:49:38  <andythenorth> But what if cabooses affect aging rate?
09:49:43  <andythenorth> or what if players think they might?
09:49:50  * andythenorth inventing fake problems for lulz
09:50:07  <reldred> Refrigerated cars might be the only ones they could think of.
09:50:10  <andythenorth> yeah no
09:50:23  <andythenorth> I removed aging from those
09:50:38  <peter1138> Timberwolf, I wish I had that much leg room in a car. Especially as small a car as a Metro.
09:50:40  <andythenorth> 185 or bust
09:50:47  <reldred> Yeah, I'd only put the cargo aging on the vehicles it applies to.
09:51:12  <reldred> Maybe on the pax ones put aging: normal on the baseline just so people can compare.
09:51:31  <andythenorth> yup
09:51:34  <reldred> And then just state in the manual that cargo aging does not affect cargo wagons job done ship it
09:51:51  <peter1138> Timberwolf, my first car was a Fiat Uno, 1985 vintage.
09:52:00  <andythenorth> about that Horse manual.... :P
09:52:11  <andythenorth> uuf
09:52:44  <glx> peter1138: still use a '87 citroën visa
09:52:52  <peter1138> Problem with nostalgia for these old cars is they were actually shit, and very unsafe...
09:52:58  <peter1138> Nice.

09:53:30  <peter1138> I miss my Citroën Xantia.
09:53:45  <reldred> I love and miss my old Volvo 740 turbo wagon :'(
09:53:49  <peter1138> reldred, was it you with the tree?
09:53:55  <andythenorth> me never owned a car
09:54:00  <reldred> the tree? the TREE?
09:54:13  <reldred> I've been implicated in various things relating to trees
09:54:31  <reldred> stolen trees, cars crashed into trees,
09:54:41  <reldred> potentially fixing improved trees
09:54:43  <reldred> maybe
09:54:50  <reldred> Haven't stuck my nose in that one yet.
09:55:18  <reldred> I've been pondering generating tropic trees on coast lines...
09:55:26  <peter1138> Tree hugging hippy crap!
09:55:59  <reldred> I wouldn't say I was ever a tree hugging hippy. Used to go to a lot of hippy psy trance raves and do drugs though.
09:56:28  <peter1138> The car was tree hugging...
09:57:55  <reldred> Oh yeah. Red one. That hugged a tree alright. Bent like a goddamn banana.
09:58:07  <reldred> How I walked away from that one...
09:58:38  <reldred> No I later on bought a white 740 wagon. With a turbo. Because the red one without a turbo was obviously not enough jandal for me.
09:58:55  <reldred> And I definitely didn't then fit a manual boost controller and dial it up to 12psi
09:59:07  <peter1138> :D

11:13:22  <andythenorth> lol 'return 0;'
11:13:33  <andythenorth> I made restaurant cars just eliminate run costs for pax coaches
11:13:46  <andythenorth> can't be arsed to test balancing some specific %
11:13:58  <andythenorth> specific % can just be 100%
11:15:05  <andythenorth> train is gonna make £300k / year anyway
11:15:15  <andythenorth> this saves £10k in running costs
11:15:18  <andythenorth> hardly touches
11:16:25  <nielsm> does the restaurant car have running costs in itself?
11:16:53  <andythenorth> yup
11:17:06  <andythenorth> conveniently the run cost is about 4x the cost of a pax coach
11:17:38  * andythenorth such silly balancing
11:17:42  <nielsm> well, so it kind of makes sense on trains with 2 or more passenger cars
11:17:47  <andythenorth> payment rate multiplier anyone? o_O
11:17:52  <nielsm> 3 or more I guess?
11:17:56  <andythenorth> about 3
11:17:58  <andythenorth> or 4
11:18:33  <andythenorth> ideally I'd just give it 50% of the capacity and 200% of the payment rate
11:18:38  <andythenorth> and not touch the other vehicles
11:18:42  *** cawal[m] has joined #openttd
11:18:47  <andythenorth> then there's none of this balancing crap
11:18:48  <nielsm> make the restaurant car carry 4 passengers and make them load really slowly, and not refittable
11:18:53  <andythenorth> it's just 'here, have restaurant car'
11:18:57  <andythenorth> but eh
11:19:14  <andythenorth> I couldn't figure out how to resolve the vehicle from VehicleCargoList so I couldn't patch a multiplier
11:19:48  <andythenorth> it would be much simpler to just have 'premium trains' and 'crap trains'
11:19:52  <andythenorth> and vary ticket price
11:20:26  <nielsm> short, medium and long distance passengers as distinct cargo types
11:20:50  <nielsm> short distance will not pay fare for destinations outside their own town
11:21:24  <nielsm> medium will only pay fare for destinations outside their own town, but at most half a map size away
11:21:32  <nielsm> long needs to travel at least half the map
11:22:04  <andythenorth> I proposed splitting pax cargos and frosch ran away from the channel
11:22:08  <andythenorth> I was trolling at the time
11:22:12  <andythenorth> but maybe it's a thing
11:22:25  <andythenorth> like yacd, but without the overhead

12:42:43  <TrueBrain> so there is no way to know this from the caller :D
12:42:44  <TrueBrain> haha
12:43:15  <glx> ok seems to be a different kind and not catchable
12:44:49  <TrueBrain> owh, and also when the server is already disconnected, it doesn't allow reading the current packet anymore
12:44:54  <TrueBrain> explains the errors peter1138 was seeing yesterday
12:45:09  <TrueBrain> "here is a valid packet; owh, the socket is disconnected YOU CANNOT READ IT NOW MWHAHAHAHAHA"

13:46:35  <andythenorth> so which mod is the supported one?
13:46:39  <andythenorth> one mod
13:46:54  <Timberwolf> egvrts, naturally.
13:47:00  * andythenorth shouldn't be naught, what the post shows is how confusing the mods are :)
13:47:04  <andythenorth> naughty *
13:47:06  <peter1138> Aw, run out of money.
13:47:12  * andythenorth misses discord edit feature here
13:47:16  <andythenorth> irc twilight I think
13:47:44  <andythenorth> if Microsoft don't buy Discord and make a business version, work will have to switch from irc to Slack
13:47:46  <andythenorth> that's oof
13:48:07  <Timberwolf> I think also the problem of, "this mod hasn't been touched in years but it has sensible cargo classes and defaults, so works fine" vs. "this mod was abandoned recently but it's already broken for several industry sets"

13:52:45  <peter1138> Can you give money via rcon?
13:59:12  <supermop_Home__> andythenorth i think currently horse fails the criterion of 'supported by its developer'
14:00:18  <reldred> ooof, rude :P
14:14:26  <peter1138> Hmm, feels like aBase on the intro screen struggles.
14:16:14  <andythenorth> if I had a sock puppet
14:16:28  <andythenorth> it would say 'please add a cargo payment multiplier to newgrf vehicles'
14:16:43  <andythenorth> campaigning for FIRS in base game seems like shooting myself in head :P
14:19:08  <supermop_Home__> andythenorth then firs is no longer your problem to maintain
14:19:19  <andythenorth> you think it works that way? :)
14:19:24  <andythenorth> pls send me newsletter
14:19:49  <supermop_Home__> it does if you get it in the game then run away to north sentinel island
14:20:15  <supermop_Home__> then nothing in the game is your problem anymore?

14:36:12  * andythenorth wants to see NSE in voxel
14:36:22  <andythenorth> or my sock puppet does
14:36:40  <Timberwolf> I wonder how much horror is needed to make the vehicles use a fixed 2cc recolour rather than the player one.
14:37:03  <andythenorth> do you want to know?
14:37:08  <andythenorth> I actually know the answer to that
14:37:13  <andythenorth> you'll want a code generator
14:37:21  <Timberwolf> Heh.
14:37:49  <Timberwolf> My suspicion is, "relatively easy to do conceptually with a template-based approach, but you have done this and now it's not"
14:38:24  <andythenorth> no it's relatively easy
14:38:28  <andythenorth> just a bit brain-bending
14:38:57  <Timberwolf> Yeah, I think the limitation would be "how have I implemented things" not "is it easy to write the NML"
14:39:07  <andythenorth> palette_2cc(company_colour1, COLOUR_WHITE) etc is quite easy I think
14:39:24  <andythenorth> and the logic to get there is easy enough
14:39:51  <andythenorth> I made it harder by providing random darker of lighter shades of each company colour

14:43:25  <TrueBrain> I also created boilerplate to allow clients to accept(), instead of only the server .. meaning that if the NAT in one direction fails, it can try it in the other direction too :D

14:58:11  <TrueBrain> peter1138: :D
14:58:24  <TrueBrain> its crazy to realise most VOIP phones do this
14:58:51  <peter1138> I knew of STUN but I'd not ever looked at what was actually involved.
14:58:57  <TrueBrain> me neither
14:59:36  <TrueBrain> I am also still really surprised it works
15:00:16  <TrueBrain> I expected more routers to validate SYN sequence numbers
15:00:24  <TrueBrain> but clearly it is easier to only check source/dest pairs :P
15:00:47  <FLHerne> Well, at this point fixing it would piss everyone off

15:10:32  <peter1138> Haha, network nerds are like "UPNP can f right off"
15:10:42  <TrueBrain> anyway, let me know if you have some time to test again peter1138 ; this should give less weird errors at least :P

15:14:21  <FLHerne> (the same as on my luggage!)
15:14:26  <TrueBrain> all that is important is the lobby ID :)
15:14:31  <TrueBrain> which is "1" for your server :P
15:14:49  <TrueBrain> and I won't be able to join, as the branch-name is not set on your end, but let me try if the connection can be set up anyway :)
15:14:55  <FLHerne> "Your join-key: 1"
15:14:57  <FLHerne> yes, that
15:15:06  <TrueBrain> its not punshing through :'(
15:15:39  <peter1138> Turns out that TrueBrain made this mega cool system that only works on his own router...
15:15:50  <TrueBrain> peter1138: haha, no, I have more people for who it works :D

15:16:31  <peter1138> (I do understand it's a security risk, but still...)
15:16:35  <TrueBrain> an endless unwinning fight :D
15:16:43  <FLHerne> One moment, I rebuilt it with hopefully the right branch name
15:16:46  <TrueBrain> the most friendly system has no security in place :)

15:19:51  <TrueBrain> can you gist me your logs?
15:21:03  <FLHerne>
15:21:08  <TrueBrain> weird part about this all, I am behind 3 NATs :P And I can punch a hole :P
15:21:23  <FLHerne> see also branch name in prompt :p
15:21:41  <TrueBrain> '20210407--g40190a5ebf" is your revision the game says

15:22:41  <TrueBrain> so I need tcpdumps :P But I am sure peter1138 can help me with that tonight :D

15:25:11  <peter1138> This is where truebrain forgets he set up is test platform as the DMZ host...
15:25:39  <TrueBrain> people that live nearby me had no issue connecting, so I am still not sure if it is a latency issue
15:25:42  <TrueBrain> or that I am doing something wrong
15:25:49  <TrueBrain> or this just doesn't work for most NATs :P
15:26:04  <FLHerne> Output from that run
15:26:05  <TrueBrain> but I have an ISP NAT, Unify NAT, and WSL2 NAT .. and it punches through without issue
15:29:15  <TrueBrain> got any output from tcpdump?
15:31:47  <FLHerne> Is there a list of ports I *should* be listening to? Trying to blacklist them is just telling me how many random network-connected applications are running on here :p
15:32:17  <TrueBrain> tcpdump -i eth -n net and port not 12121 and port not 12122

15:42:57  <FLHerne> I can add the `-n 3` again if you wanted me to

15:43:46  <FLHerne> and now 1
15:43:48  <TrueBrain> hmm .. crash again .. oops
15:43:51  <TrueBrain> owh well, it recovered
15:43:52  <FLHerne> clearly you're spying on me
15:44:01  <TrueBrain> I see the logs from the game coordinator, yes :)
15:44:09  <TrueBrain> and, did that work?
15:44:36  <FLHerne> Nothing happened, so I assume not
15:44:46  <TrueBrain> bah .. was worth a shot :D
15:44:46  <FLHerne> tcpdump output is as before

15:45:20  <TrueBrain> some something else is going on
15:45:27  <TrueBrain> I need to write a test-tool to see what your NATs are doing
15:45:49  <nielsm> I think maybe I had windows firewall blocking before
15:46:02  <TrueBrain> start a new server and we can find out :)
15:46:04  <FLHerne>
15:46:12  <nielsm> started a server now
15:46:21  <FLHerne> what number?
15:46:26  <nielsm> 2
15:46:33  <TrueBrain> nielsm: still same issue .. there is a connection, but it has a lot of packetloss and is dropped after a while
15:47:07  <FLHerne> It's hung up at 2/6 Authorising for me
15:47:15  <FLHerne> now dropped
15:47:16  <TrueBrain> yeah .. so you too
15:47:30  <TrueBrain> there is a connection, just something is conflicting
15:47:41  <TrueBrain> nielsm: what OS are you on?
15:48:23  <nielsm> win10
15:48:30  <TrueBrain> k, tnx both for testing :)
15:48:33  <TrueBrain> I have some more puzzling to do
15:48:44  <nielsm> and I think I have double NAT actually
15:48:58  <nielsm> I forget if I set my ISP's router/modem to passthrough or not
15:49:56  <nielsm> yeah it's two layers of NAT
15:50:11  <TrueBrain> yeah, I have a similar setup
15:50:30  <nielsm> uh... try if you can connect directly to my IP on 3979
15:50:40  <nielsm> because I think I actually have a regular port forward set up
15:51:07  <TrueBrain> UDP at least is not responding
15:51:22  <nielsm> only TCP forward set up
15:51:33  <TrueBrain> yeah, and -n doesn't allow IP-based joining atm :D
15:51:37  <TrueBrain> I had to hack it in somewhere :P
15:52:27  <TrueBrain> no reply over TCP either
15:57:25  <TrueBrain> FLHerne: looking at your tcpdump there is one interesting thing there .. for some reason there is an ICMP packet there .. let me see what that is about ..
15:58:37  <TrueBrain> ugh, we should just do TURN and make people pay for it :P Done :D
15:59:12  <TrueBrain> well, worst case, nielsm , I have some groundwork for when the protocol is fully UDP :P :P
15:59:36  <TrueBrain> now first,dinner time

17:07:42  <TrueBrain> hard to tell :)
17:07:48  <TrueBrain> a coal line, tssk
17:08:06  <TrueBrain> and a server with a password
17:08:07  <TrueBrain> eeuuuhhhhh
17:08:11  <frosch123> 123
17:08:15  <frosch123> i see you
17:08:27  <TrueBrain> so it "mostly" works :P
17:08:45  <frosch123> though it's weird that you appear in the client list before entering the pw
17:08:58  <TrueBrain> the whole password thing is done in such a weird moment/wy
17:09:02  <TrueBrain> we should really address that honestly
17:09:49  <frosch123> it says you joined via ipv4
17:09:58  <TrueBrain> yeah, this whole stuff atm is IPv4 only
17:10:03  <frosch123> ah, ok
17:10:09  <TrueBrain> mainly as the STUN server is IPv4 only :)
17:11:38  <TrueBrain> was reading some other people who did similar things
17:11:45  <TrueBrain> their summary is constant: there is a chance this works
17:11:49  <TrueBrain> and a chance it doesn't :P
17:13:09  <TrueBrain> another trick that seems to work .. just send connect() to each other .. lets see how stable that is
17:16:14  <TrueBrain> but the server assumes in more than one place it goes via accept() :P Lets see ...
17:17:36  *** glx_ has joined #openttd
17:17:36  *** glx is now known as Guest816
17:17:36  *** glx_ is now known as glx
17:17:51  <TrueBrain> that surprisingly works
17:18:09  <nielsm> got a new version I can try out?
17:18:13  <TrueBrain> pushing now
17:18:17  <TrueBrain> done
17:18:50  <TrueBrain> its an interesting idea .. 2 TCP sockets with connect() to each other will also establish a two-way stream
17:19:04  <TrueBrain> bypassing the whole need to do the accept() dance
17:19:29  <nielsm> you just need to know the source and destination port for both ends in advance
17:19:39  <TrueBrain> strictly seen it violates TCP specs, but most OS stacks appear to fix it
17:20:38  <TrueBrain> it works better, as there is no FIN on the line
17:20:40  <TrueBrain> which seems to be the issue
17:20:53  <TrueBrain> I love to see that nielsm also made a 64x64 map :P
17:20:58  <TrueBrain> or 128?
17:21:04  <TrueBrain> 128 ..
17:21:08  <TrueBrain> I should learn to count :D
17:21:18  <TrueBrain> right ... peter1138 / FLHerne up for another round of testing? :D
17:21:54  <FLHerne> well ok
17:22:31  <TrueBrain> hell, even if it works only for 50% of the people, it is a huge increase in people that do not have to fiddle with their router :P
17:22:32  <TrueBrain> the other suggestion solution is to leave the TCP connection to the STUN intact for the duration of the session
17:22:34  <TrueBrain> just idle
17:22:40  <TrueBrain> so NATs don't close the entry
17:22:52  <TrueBrain> but if we can avoid that, that would be lovely :P

17:25:34  <peter1138> Yeah
17:25:43  <peter1138> So, er, how does it work?
17:25:58  <TrueBrain> peter1138: what part? The TCP part?
17:26:00  <TrueBrain> or the lobby part?
17:26:20  <FLHerne> I just started one, it's 3
17:26:29  <TrueBrain> so FLHerne 's makes 3 / 4 :P
17:26:30  <FLHerne> exited
17:26:49  <FLHerne> "the server didn't answer the request, red dialog"
17:26:55  <FLHerne> move quote
17:27:12  <peter1138> I got the same. Just sat there, my own server closed on me :p
17:28:06  <TrueBrain> you don't like that? Awh :P
17:28:27  <peter1138> Shit he's remote controlling my PC
17:29:27  <TrueBrain> the network code really assumes the server gets connections via accept(), so I guess something is acting up there
17:30:06  <TrueBrain> FLHerne: can you start your server again, just to see it wasn't an accident?
17:30:40  <FLHerne> same again
17:30:52  <FLHerne> six seconds after worldgen finished
17:30:59  <TrueBrain> most likely the moment I connect
17:31:03  <TrueBrain> restart and I will not connect
17:31:11  <TrueBrain> milek7's works fine too .. so that makes 4 out of 5
17:31:45  <FLHerne> ok so far
17:31:49  <TrueBrain> let me connect
17:31:54  <FLHerne> Didn't peter1138 say he got the same?
17:32:01  <FLHerne> exited
17:32:21  <TrueBrain> FLHerne: I know what is causing yours
17:32:35  <TrueBrain> basically, something on your machine is not allowing the outgoing connection as requested
17:32:43  <TrueBrain> so the connect() fails
17:32:55  <FLHerne> I'm not running ufw at the moment
17:32:57  <TrueBrain> (and I did not write the code yet to handle the failure case correct in case you are a server :P)
17:33:13  <FLHerne> What port does it want?
17:33:20  <TrueBrain> ports are dynamic
17:33:21  <nielsm> it uses random ports every time
17:33:27  <FLHerne> Hm
17:33:37  <TrueBrain> but tcpdump also showed an ICMP drop
17:33:52  <TrueBrain> for some reason, after binding, it is not allowing the outgoing packet to go
17:33:55  <FLHerne> And while I have various things using different ports, it's unlikely to hit used ones by chance :p
17:34:03  <TrueBrain> I have seen that on one of the test machines I have access to too
17:34:11  <TrueBrain> 0 chance, the kernel finds a free one
17:34:29  <FLHerne> nifty
17:34:48  <FLHerne> (this is on Linux 5.11.8, fwiw)
17:34:48  <nielsm> well if you have multiple machines on the network depending on the NAT implementation maybe it will remap the outgoing port number
17:34:54  <TrueBrain> I think this happens because it rebinds on the same socket
17:35:39  <TrueBrain> so basically, the first connection goes from A to B. Then we try a connect from A to C, and it says: NOPE I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO ROUTE TO C
17:35:49  <TrueBrain> while D to C does work
17:36:06  <TrueBrain> not completely sure how/why/what is going on there
17:36:52  <TrueBrain> (where A, B, C and D are (ip:port) pairs)
17:37:42  <peter1138> Hmm, maybe I should get a takeaway
17:40:29  <TrueBrain> oof, and I really need to do something about the connect() timeout .. guess that is also what frosch123 was having issues with over IPv6 :P It takes 30+ seconds before connect() times out :D
17:41:11  <TrueBrain> FLHerne: I pushed a new version; mind trying this?
17:41:25  <TrueBrain> it retries the connect() 3 times, just so see if that helps :D
17:41:31  <frosch123> yep, needs async resolve
17:42:44  <FLHerne> TrueBrain: ok
17:42:50  <FLHerne> (server open)
17:42:57  <TrueBrain> the logs showed 3 connection attmpts?
17:43:52  <FLHerne>
17:44:21  <TrueBrain> so the second time at least it doesn't show "No route to host"
17:45:30  <TrueBrain> I guess the issue is that the NAT closes when it sees the FIN of the STUN request
17:45:35  <TrueBrain> which would be the sane thing to do btw
17:46:00  <TrueBrain> the suggested solution for that is to leave the STUN connection open, but .. that means we have 2 sockets open on the same local ip/port
17:46:15  <TrueBrain> for Windows that means they both receive data, randomly to which goes what
17:46:21  <TrueBrain> pretty sure I cannot reconstruct that :P
17:47:28  <TrueBrain> basically what I am doing is: open the door, close the door, and JUST before it is closed, sneak in another stream, which keeps the door open
17:47:40  <TrueBrain> I think that your NAT is quick in closing the door
17:48:21  <TrueBrain> and this is why UDP is more reliable, as the odds of that happening is much much lower
17:49:09  <TrueBrain> the other thing people do, is predict what the next port the NAT is gonna use, give or take, and just spray
17:49:18  <TrueBrain> so both sides try 10 ports or something
17:49:53  <TrueBrain> but that sounds really ... nasty

17:54:04  *** gelignite has joined #openttd
17:54:15  <TrueBrain> FLHerne: just because I would like to confirm my hypothesis is correct, I pushed a new version that does the spraying
17:54:18  <TrueBrain> mind testing? :D
17:56:30  <FLHerne> TrueBrain: up
17:56:33  <TrueBrain> server full?
17:56:34  <TrueBrain> lol
17:56:37  <TrueBrain> but so yes, that is the issue
17:57:06  <TrueBrain> but did you really have a full server? :D
17:57:22  <FLHerne> It was set to max companies 1 for some reason
17:57:22  <FLHerne> now it isn't
17:57:39  <TrueBrain> now it has a password :P
17:57:45  <FLHerne> 12345 still
17:57:55  <FLHerne> I hope?
17:58:02  <TrueBrain> it is
17:58:03  <Wolf01> "password"
17:58:11  <TrueBrain> okay, tnx FLHerne
17:58:23  <TrueBrain> I think spraying like this really is not okay to do
17:58:39  <TrueBrain> but it does mean I am correct in my hypothesis, well, making it no longer a hypothesis I guess :D
17:58:49  <TrueBrain> but when your NAT sees the FIN, it closes the route
17:58:58  <TrueBrain> so for a short moment, reusing the route gives an ICMP error
17:59:04  <TrueBrain> and after that, it has another local port
17:59:15  <FLHerne> Wolf01: It's amazing, I have the same code on my luggage
17:59:32  <TrueBrain> I think we start off by not supporting those NATs, honestly
18:00:48  <Wolf01> My luggage only have 3 cyphers... so I had to drop the zero-fill :P
18:07:51  <TrueBrain> FLHerne: one thing I am curious about, but not sure you can help with that .. is it your NAT, or is it Linux? Do you happen to have a Windows machine or VM to test with?
18:09:30  <FLHerne> I don't have a Windows machine
18:09:47  <TrueBrain> too bad :D
18:09:51  <FLHerne> I could try tethering the laptop to my phone, I suppose...
18:09:54  <nielsm> I can try on linux a bit later
18:09:57  <FLHerne> Not sure if that would prove anything
18:10:03  <TrueBrain> FLHerne: it would
18:10:08  <TrueBrain> if it still doesn't work, it doesn't mean anything
18:10:12  <TrueBrain> but if it does work, it is your NAT :P
18:10:20  <FLHerne> Yeah, that's what I thought
18:10:36  <FLHerne> VM might be the same
18:10:57  <FLHerne> if it didn't work, it might just be that Linux is still being a layer of the notworking stack
18:11:03  <TrueBrain> yup
18:11:11  <TrueBrain> so if you can try tethering, it at least gives me another datapoint :D
18:11:27  <FLHerne> But I don't have a Windows VM on this machine, and the machine it's on is boxed up
18:12:01  <TrueBrain> yeah, no worries
18:12:26  <TrueBrain> owh, right, I have to remove the spray patch first, euh ... let me fix that
18:12:50  <FLHerne> now, can I find a phone signal...

18:55:59  <TrueBrain> nielsm: I can neither reproduce it, nor find the reason why it would do that :(
18:56:31  <TrueBrain> if you could add those debug prints I talked about earlier, maybe that sheds some light on the situation
19:04:23  <nielsm> I'm also going to patch IsNetworkCompatibleVersion to return true
19:04:44  <TrueBrain> smart :D
19:05:12  <nielsm> dedicated server started
19:05:34  <TrueBrain> let me try a direct ip connect ..
19:05:54  <TrueBrain> so it is somewhere in the new code .. something not initialized of sorts ..
19:06:33  <nielsm>
19:06:53  <TrueBrain> huh? lag = 0, but it times out?
19:06:56  <TrueBrain> wth :D
19:07:19  <nielsm> yeah but like 150 lines of spam of that function
19:07:42  <TrueBrain> I guess that means the second part of the lag calculator kicke din
19:08:49  <TrueBrain> can you also print "_frame_counter" there?
19:09:48  <TrueBrain> most of that code needs to be rewritten to use the real clock, but okay .. something for another day :D
19:09:50  <nielsm> there
19:09:53  <TrueBrain> join timeouts based on ticks .. that is just odd
19:10:59  <nielsm> frame_counter went from 175 to 349 up one by each line printed
19:11:30  <TrueBrain> okay, so that is all working as expected, basically
19:11:46  <TrueBrain> it really took more than 100 ticks to start
19:12:08  <nielsm> also no, I'd say it's correct to calculate lag based on game ticks rather than real time
19:12:19  <TrueBrain> for some parts, yes
19:12:19  <nielsm> the problem is if the client falls behind the simulation
19:12:23  <TrueBrain> but for the initial packet?
19:12:47  <TrueBrain> there is a mix of "game" lag and "realtime" lag :)
19:13:24  <TrueBrain> for example, entering the password .. should be time rather than ticks, I say
19:13:32  <TrueBrain> anyway, can you set max_init_time to 1000 or so?
19:13:35  <TrueBrain> see if that fixes it?
19:15:28  <TrueBrain> that really doesn't feel like it took 3 seconds ..
19:15:32  <TrueBrain> 100 ticks is 3 seconds, right?
19:15:45  <nielsm> yes
19:15:54  <TrueBrain> hmm .. I did manage to join
19:15:59  <TrueBrain> but I am not receiving anything anymore :D
19:16:00  <nielsm> it's counting up...
19:16:03  <TrueBrain> owh, paused
19:16:30  <TrueBrain> time seems to flow correctly
19:16:40  <TrueBrain> but on join, it was also saying I didn't receive anything from the server for 5+ seconds
19:16:42  <TrueBrain> really strange
19:17:25  <TrueBrain> it really doesn't takes 3 seconds from the moment I am connected to being ingame, so I wonder why it gets so confused
19:17:44  <TrueBrain> too bad our logger doesn't add time :D

19:27:07  <TrueBrain> and now it doesn't want to connect at all :P Lol
19:28:35  <TrueBrain> that what was working before, stopped working now :D Great!
19:30:21  <TrueBrain> I receive a SYN and a FIN from you :P
19:30:23  <TrueBrain> no ACKs :D

19:30:54  <TrueBrain> what did you do?
19:31:08  <nielsm> removed the debug print spamming the console
19:31:16  <TrueBrain> lol ...
19:31:37  <TrueBrain> well, it works now :P
19:31:56  <TrueBrain> can we leave it on for like 5 minutes?
19:32:03  <nielsm> ofc
19:32:11  <TrueBrain> tnx, and tnx a lot for helping testing :D
19:32:26  <TrueBrain> I guess tomorrow I make some GUI stuff for this .. so we can spread it a bit further .. collect some more samples
19:32:54  <nielsm> also maybe make it handle normal connects again
19:33:04  <TrueBrain> already have that locally, yes
19:33:51  <nielsm> dunno how you're doing it atm but I'd suggest using some prefix to indicate a lobby id
19:34:05  <TrueBrain> "-n +<lobby>" is wha tI did now :)
19:34:14  <TrueBrain> and I will make the GUI work tomorrow
19:34:15  <nielsm> that can't be mistaken for a hostname or ipv4 or ipv6 address
19:34:17  <TrueBrain> so we don't have to use it :P
19:34:24  <TrueBrain> + sign works for that, not? :D
19:34:25  <nielsm> does it work with the console connect command?
19:34:36  <TrueBrain> havent checked yet

20:01:02  <nielsm> I just had the thought that easy conversion of singleplayer to multiplayer and having someone else join your game will make it much easier to help debug issues someone is having in a game

21:15:13  <Xaroth> What kind of error are you getting?
21:15:36  <TheArcaneBrony>
21:15:50  <TheArcaneBrony> "Your computer took too long to join the server"
21:16:01  <glx> how big is the map ?
21:16:10  <TheArcaneBrony> 4096x4096
21:16:24  <glx> too big for your computer I think
21:16:32  <LordAro> or the server
21:16:33  <TheArcaneBrony> i tried both ways
21:16:42  <TheArcaneBrony> between 2 clients, same error
21:16:46  <TheArcaneBrony> both directions
21:17:06  <LordAro> what is your download/upload speed?
21:17:18  <TheArcaneBrony> gigabit
21:17:24  <TheArcaneBrony> (its a LAN game)
21:17:33  <LordAro> hmm
21:17:37  <TheArcaneBrony> tried putting both clients on a wired connection, same error
21:17:47  <nielsm> try putting the game on pause before joining
21:18:22  <nielsm> (there is also a setting somewhere that makes the server auto-pause while someone is joining/downloading the map)
21:18:26  <LordAro> what CPU do the computers have?
21:18:54  <glx> btw 4k maps are usually boring to play ;)
21:19:16  *** Tirili has joined #openttd
21:19:39  <LordAro> (basically, no, there are no known issues with multiplayer)
21:19:51  <LordAro> try a smaller map
21:20:48  <TheArcaneBrony> i7-7950H in my case
21:21:18  <TheArcaneBrony> i3-4150 on the server
21:21:56  <glx> good point, you put the server on the "slowest" machine, that's the recommended setup
21:22:00  <LordAro> i3 could be a bit slow, mostly dependent on single-core clock speed
21:22:39  <LordAro> *a bit slow for 4k map
21:22:39  <nielsm> basically, first try if you can play with a sensible map size (not larger than 1024x1024)
21:22:55  <glx> it's better to have slow server than client unable to keep up
21:22:57  <nielsm> and also try if it makes a difference to have the game paused while people are joining
21:23:53  <nielsm> and yes I agree, unless you are something like 30 people at a lan party all agreeing to play together, a 4k map may as well be all of you playing singleplayer
21:24:04  <TheArcaneBrony> well, i tried with the server on the i7 first, but same thing
21:25:11  <glx> with or without pausing ?

21:35:49  <glx> quite low for 4k I think
21:36:26  <LordAro> mm
21:36:36  <LordAro> especially with the decompression stuff
21:36:53  <LordAro> gigabit lan, actually transferring the save should be essentially nothing
21:37:01  <LordAro> still, gone now
21:37:31  <TrueBrain> These values should scale to map size I guess ;)
21:38:34  <glx> gigabit lan could use "raw" save format

21:43:18  <TheArcaneBrony> incase my client broke because its really silent here

22:22:04  <peter1138> Hmm
22:23:30  <TheArcaneBrony>  is there a way to decrease the scrolling sensitvity ingame?
22:24:07  <TheArcaneBrony> because im dealing with the map zoom being uncontrollable
22:25:36  <LordAro> as in, mouse scroll wheel? or scrolling across the map?
22:25:49  <LordAro> the former sounds like an issue with your mouse
22:26:34  <TheArcaneBrony> mouse scroll wheel
22:26:37  <TheArcaneBrony> im using a touchpad
22:27:59  <LordAro> ah
22:28:18  <LordAro> i'm not aware of any setting
22:28:31  <LordAro> but it wouldn't surprise me if there were one
22:31:05  <TheArcaneBrony> well there is one but changing it doesnt seem to help
22:31:48  <peter1138> If you're using touchpad then you probably want to set "Viewport scroll behaviour" to "move map with RMB" (or maybe LMB)
22:32:00  <peter1138> As the mouse-warp that the other modes do does not work with touchpad.
22:32:58  <peter1138> Or maybe it does, I might be thinking of touch screen :D
22:33:24  <TheArcaneBrony> im thinking of the zoom
22:33:42  <TheArcaneBrony> not the moving camera
22:34:21  <peter1138> Oh
22:34:26  <LordAro> i still feel like the touchpad sensitivity is at fault here
22:34:35  <LordAro> you're going to struggle to control a lot of other things
22:34:43  <peter1138> Get a mouse :D
22:34:52  <LordAro> accurately contol*
22:35:35  <LordAro> should be able to use +/- to zoom, right? or am i making that up?
22:36:06  <peter1138> Yeah but if the touchpad simulates mouse wheel with two fingers then who knows.
22:36:31  <LordAro> mine does that
22:36:43  <LordAro> it's challenging to control, but perfectly possible
22:38:07  <TheArcaneBrony> i cant change the touchpad sensitivity in windows
22:39:23  <peter1138> Use Timberwolf's trains in 1880.
22:39:32  <peter1138> SimpleAI has decided, of course, that the best train to use is... a horse.
22:40:05  <andythenorth> \o/
22:40:14  <peter1138> It's gone for Plateway tracks, instead of normal rail.
22:40:14  <andythenorth> sounds valid
22:40:34  <peter1138> I wonder if there's a hidden "use highest indexed rail type"
22:41:06  <peter1138> 2 horses pulling 132 tonnes of grain, poor things.
22:42:56  <FLHerne> TheArcaneBrony: On my touchpad, I find it easier to control scrolling accurately if I move one finger and keep the other one still
22:43:17  <FLHerne> (because the touch point is averaged, so you effectively halve the sensitivity)
22:43:40  <FLHerne> May be dependent on particular touchpad drivers though
