19:14:30  <frosch123> planetmaker: haha, so adf pointed out another issue with the buy+refit patch :p
19:14:39  <frosch123> not only does it not show the capacity, but also the wrong cost :p
19:14:54  <frosch123> and cost is just as impossible to tell as capacity :p
19:16:05  <frosch123> this seems to be the case where it is a single to write a hack, and hundreds to make it correct :p
19:20:45  <frosch123> maybe we should make it a cheat :p
19:21:00  <frosch123> there has been no addition to the cheat menu for long
19:22:09  <Alberth> :)
19:23:40  <frosch123> "enable buggy but useful features" or something
19:24:05  <Alberth> "patchpack features" :)
19:24:42  <Alberth> your 80 idea of the newgrf grfid and md5sum seems to work nicely
19:25:24  <Alberth> should I copy the parameters of the grf when upgrading?
19:26:22  <frosch123> that should be safe if the grfs are marked as compatible
19:26:49  <frosch123> though for telling compatibility you need the version of the grf, which you only have if you still have the old grf file
19:27:06  <frosch123> ah, well, i guess just copy them unconditionally
19:27:48  <Alberth> currently I only upgrade the currently active set, which of course has the grf itself
19:27:51  <frosch123> should be fine in most cases, and not important in the rest
19:28:13  <Alberth> not copying will very soon break
19:28:50  <frosch123> hmm, doesn't it auto-upgrade on loading the cfg when the grf are missing?
19:29:28  * Alberth tries
19:32:02  <Alberth> maybe the [preset-*] are not loaded, or at least not saved
19:32:07  <Alberth> s/maybe//
19:32:27  <frosch123> i think they are only loaded when selecting them in the gui
19:35:15  <Alberth> [newgrf] section is not upgraded, non-findable newgrfs are reported and removed
19:35:42  <Alberth> and since they are loaded and saved, they get the grfid+md5sum
19:36:00  <Alberth> (grfs in the [newgrf] section)
19:36:06  <frosch123> well, it should try to find grfid+md5sum in some other path
19:36:18  <frosch123> and if that also fails, then pick the newest with grfid
19:36:24  <frosch123> and only if that also fails remove it
19:36:31  <frosch123> (imho)
19:37:51  <Alberth> indeed, if you give a grfid, and a nonsense path, it picks the newest grf
19:39:04  <Alberth> and a good grfid+md5sum and a nonsense path fixes the path
19:40:01  <Alberth> because it picks the correct grf from the big list, and then saves it with its information, instead of using the nonsense path in the cfg file
19:40:08  <Alberth> so that works too
19:42:05  <Alberth> will see about the compatibility thing
19:42:46  <frosch123> wrt. copying parameters? i don't think that is really necessary
19:43:57  <Alberth> so just assume compatibility :)
19:44:36  <frosch123> the worst that can happen is that is chooses different settings than before
19:44:46  <frosch123> by not copying them that is always the case :p
19:45:09  <Alberth> indeed
19:45:19  <frosch123> so, checking compatibility to not copy them means replacing something that works most times with something that works never :p
19:50:45  <Alberth> saving existing presets is also a big PITA
19:51:01  <Alberth> you have to remember the name, and retype it precisely :)
19:51:15  <frosch123> maybe it should not be a dropdown, but a scrollable list?
19:51:36  <Alberth> I was thinking to make it a save-like window
19:51:52  <frosch123> hmm, actually the loading is easier with a dropdown
19:51:56  <Alberth> instead of the current standard one line edit box
19:52:04  <frosch123> maybe the save window should just have a editbox with a dropdown attached
19:52:28  <frosch123> so, not the standard edit window, but with an additional [v]
19:53:07  <Alberth> dropdown easier than a scrollable list?
19:53:34  <Alberth> with loading I can imagine, but saving?
19:53:37  <frosch123> easier to code: likely; easier to use: no idea
19:54:03  <frosch123> loading should use a dropdown since then it can remain the in same window without opening a new one
19:54:10  <frosch123> saving is fine with a new window
19:54:24  * Alberth nods
19:55:38  <Alberth> ok, enough tonight, see you tomorrow probably
