05:31<TheJosh>sorry
05:32<peter1138>hmm?
05:33<TheJosh>oh not grr at me.
05:33<TheJosh>hey i fixed a bunch of those issues with my patch. putting into flyspray

05:38<TheJosh>hey
05:38<peter1138>hmm
05:39<peter1138>_price.build_town = _price.build_industry * 5;
05:39<peter1138>instead of adding a new price, can it just use build_industry * 5 instead?
05:40|-|Morphy [~morphine@193.220.103.232] has joined #openttd
05:40<TheJosh>because the industry initial price is 1000000 and the town initial price is 5000000, so I figure if there is no price info in the savegame, i should try to guess a price
05:40<TheJosh>then people cant change the industry price without affecting the town price
05:40<peter1138>it should stay *5 relatively anyway
05:40<peter1138>hmm
05:41<TheJosh>imagine if 1/2 the prices were based on another, and the mess that would cause.
05:41<TheJosh>imagine build a train station = cost of a rail * 1.342
05:42<peter1138>well, build_industry is also used for the existing town actions
05:42<TheJosh>is it?
05:42<peter1138>advertising, statues, road reconstruction, etc
05:43<peter1138>yeah
05:43<TheJosh>oh
05:43<TheJosh>well i have to savegame bump for the network to work anyway...although that would reduce the code needed for the patch

05:47<Immow>eek
05:47<Immow>I made a "giant screenshot" its still thinking lol :)
05:47<peter1138>:D
05:47<peter1138>it means it
05:47<Immow>I made a junction... very large one
05:48<Immow>merging 4 rows of track like a T section
05:48<TheJosh>dont you just love large screenshots?
05:48<Immow>this is taking to long.. I kiled ttd :)
05:49<TheJosh>i meant large intersections...my mind wanders at this time of nite
05:50<Rubidium>Immow: you should have patience when making a screenshot of the whole map ;)
05:50<TheJosh>i just did a 2048x2048 and pressed CTRL+G
05:50<TheJosh>oh for a love of multitasking, letting it do that while I chat

05:54<Immow>hehe
05:54<Immow>gimme a sec
05:54<Immow>so I can hear what you experts think about it
05:56<Immow>http://immow.nl/4_4_4_junction.png
05:57<Immow>I am wondering if all those "intbetween" signals are needed

06:03<TheJosh>that is an intersection and a half
06:04<TheJosh>my system is done with its screenshot.
06:04<TheJosh>its 802 MB (png)
06:04<Rubidium>good luck opening it ;)
06:05<TheJosh>that 4 4 4 is incredible
06:06<Immow>I got more :)
06:06<Immow>this I designed yesterday
06:06<Immow>took me 2 hours
06:06<TheJosh>im only using 230mb of 1gig of ram, should have space for it.
06:06<TheJosh>i love linux, you can do heaps of stuff and use hardly any ram.
06:07<Immow>shame my school makes it imposible to use linux
06:07<Immow>cos I need a few programs to work with
06:07<Immow>and wine or something does not support it
06:07<TheJosh>im loading it into the gimp right now (and timing the load time)
06:08<Immow>but my question about the signals
06:08<Immow>no one can help me?
06:08<TheJosh>whats the signal question?
06:08<Immow>[12:57] <Immow> I am wondering if all those "intbetween" signals are needed
06:08<Immow>[12:58] <Immow> i'm mark em
06:08<Immow>[12:59] <Immow> http://immow.nl/signals.png
06:09<TheJosh>in my opinion, you cant have too many signals.
06:09<Immow>I ment to say: i'l mark em
06:09<Immow>yea
06:09<TheJosh>if there are a few more then needed, who cares?
06:09<Immow>I think now a train will wait halfway now there
06:09<Immow>blocking the rest
06:09<TheJosh>try both options.
06:10<Immow>oke
06:10<TheJosh>see what its like with them, then if you get clogs, remove em
06:10<Immow>now gonna show you my version of 2 on 4
06:11<TheJosh>have fun'
06:12<Immow>http://immow.nl/2_4_4_junction.png
06:12<Immow>my friend found this mod where you can save em as templates
06:13<Immow>this is why i'm going all crazy designing stuff :)
06:19<TheJosh>cool
06:19<TheJosh>its almost loaded the image

09:45<elmex_>hm
09:45<elmex_>why is air disallowed on many servers?
09:46<Rubidium>because it's very very easy to make lots and lots of money with them
09:46<Rubidium>it basically makes them a little harder
09:46<peter1138>also because the server owners are evil
09:48<elmex_>hm, so isn't air unbalanced then?
09:49<hylje>yes
09:49<Rubidium>no
09:49<elmex_>no?
09:50<Rubidium>when you remove all negations from your question: is air balanced -> makes me answer that with no
09:51<Rubidium>double negations are so nice ;)
09:52<elmex_>hehe

10:25<Biff>hey
10:25<hylje>for saving i take it?
10:26<TrueBrain>everywhere where threads are used
10:26<TrueBrain>:p
10:26<TrueBrain>(TGP landscape generation)
10:26<hylje>tgp is threaded?
10:27<Rubidium>TGP uses threads; I would not call it threaded
10:27<hylje>ah
10:27<hylje>so no arbitrary amount of workers..
10:27<TrueBrain>in fact, the TGP isn't threaded, but the GUI is.. or kind of... uses threads indeed :p
10:27<Rubidium>basically the threads are used to switch between two application 'stacks'
10:28<TrueBrain>I like that description :)

15:37<Eddi|zuHause3>it's probably not very good
15:38<Eddi|zuHause3>and it looks better zoomed in, but it doesn't fit into the screen...
15:39<yeti_>but it's definitely huge :D
15:39<myrka>could you take giant scrshot with more zoom

15:39<myrka>ok
15:39<myrka>but yes
15:39<myrka>its huge (:
15:39<yeti_>giant screenshot on 2048*2048 with full zoom will probably be over 250MB ;)
15:39<yeti_>and will take half an hour to take
15:40<Eddi|zuHause3>by my count, it is 64x66 tiles (from first split to last join)

15:41[~]Rubidium doesn't want to know what happens in 32bpp OTTD with giant screenshot at 2048x2048 ;)
15:42<yeti_>by the way, when i activate fast forward, i randomly get 'lockups' of about 10 secs, the game will run, but freeze my PC, i can't make any input in those 10 sec. (regardless which mapsize, but larger maps will make it worse)
15:43<yeti_>i have a p4 2.4 ghz with 1G of ram, running kubuntu linux
15:43<Rubidium>randomly like monthly?
15:43<yeti_>no, it's not the autosave
15:43<Eddi|zuHause3>the better idea would be to make a virtual screen that is larger than the actual screen, and make a screenshot from there
15:43<Eddi|zuHause3>but i don't know how to do that...
15:44<yeti_>Rubidium: i'm not sure whether it's monthly, but it's definitely not autosave because it's not active
15:44<Rubidium>what version are you running?
15:45<yeti_>had that problem with 0.5.1 as well as with nightly 9734 as well as with latest trunk
15:45<Rubidium>AI?
15:45<yeti_>no AI in that game, in other games AI intelligence set to low
15:46<yeti_>new alpha AI not active
15:46<Rubidium>the 'problem' is that I do not have that problem
15:46<Rubidium>so I can only guess
15:47<yeti_>which linux distro/kernel are you running?
15:47<yeti_>(on what cpu?)
15:47<Rubidium>you're absolutely sure there is no rogue background process
15:48<Eddi|zuHause3>i never tried fast forward, but my (miniin) game with around 150 trains already hits 100% CPU on a similar powered pc
15:48<yeti_>pretty sure, yeah... i'm gonna try to reproduce it while looking at top

19:07<mikk36>the only reason i don't use it in my router is that it's loud as hell
19:07<Tefad>so spin it down after bootup?

19:08<mikk36>Tefad, no can do

19:08<Tefad>what is your router doing?.. blah
19:08<Tefad>make it write to ramdisk and sync once per day or something
19:08<mikk36>m0n0wall can stop it, because it doesn't log etc...

19:09<Digitalfox[Home]>mikk36: I know what is to lost a hdd that you use for data, like movies, music, games, tv-series, documents, etc.. I lost a 160x2 RAID-0 = 320GB of data 2 years ago... Or on other words i lost everything i was collecting for 6 years
19:09<mikk36>on graphics
19:09<Tefad>i think 1GB flashdisk is US$15 pretty much anywhere
19:09<mikk36>Digitalfox[Home], that drive was in raid0 :)
19:09<Tefad>Digitalfox[Home]: RAID-0 is a bad idea.

19:10<mikk36>but it unpacked and copied data fast as hell :P

19:11<Tefad>5 sucks for writing little pieces all over the place though (eg fast torrents)
19:11<Digitalfox[Home]>Raid = 0 is not a bad idea, the problem was a hardware failure of the 2 disks... I received 2 new discs for that problem from + seagate also send me another 2 other discs has compensation.. So i lost the data and receive 4 new disks
19:11<Tefad>RAID 0 goes down with a single failure.
19:11<mikk36>yup
19:12<Tefad>it doesn't matter if both failed or not..
19:12<TheJosh>the trick to raid 0 is good disks. disks are good for about 2 years
19:12<Digitalfox[Home]>Tefad: Yes, but it was in my case the 2 disks that failed..
19:12<Tefad>positive both failed and not just one?
19:12<Digitalfox[Home]>yes
19:12<Tefad>the FS gets corrupted if either die
19:12<mikk36>heh
19:12<mikk36>lucky one :P
19:12<TheJosh>you can do just about anthing with a disk in the first 2 years
19:12<Digitalfox[Home]>well i did win 4 new 200 GB disks from segate..
19:13<Tefad>heh
19:13<TheJosh>any serious web/serving company ditches there disks every 2 years
19:13<Tefad>if they're using craptastic IDE, then yes
19:13<mikk36>well, if a disk last, it will last long
19:13<Tefad>quite a few SCSI disks have a giant MTBF
19:13<mikk36>if a disk lasts*
19:13<TheJosh>good point
19:14<mikk36>if it's a bad one, it will fail quickly under big loads for long times
19:14<Tefad>also RAID 5 or 6 with reserve disks are extremely reliable
19:14<TheJosh>when i get a new server im going to get probably 4 sata 320gig disks
19:14<mikk36>still 320 ?
19:14<TheJosh>320 has about the best price per gig at the moment
19:15<mikk36>hmm
19:15<Tefad>i remember when my 1.6GB was $200
19:15<TheJosh>the 500s are still too much per gig

19:25<mikk36>MBps

19:25<Tefad>it's 3Gbps.
19:25<mikk36>nope
19:25<Tefad>yes.
19:25<mikk36>it's 300MBps
19:25<Tefad>no.
19:25<mikk36>yes
19:25<Tefad>no.
19:25<Tefad>3Gbps of raw data rate.
19:25<mikk36>ahh damn
19:26<Tefad>actual file throughput is something like 250MB/s burst
19:26<Tefad>and disks don't even go that fast yet.. i think the fastest now is still less than 90MB/s sustained.
19:26<mikk36>yup
19:26<mikk36>also
19:27<TheJosh>That disk has a 5 year warranty, thats the bit i like (for my server)
19:27<mikk36>Sata150 is 1.5Gbps but max transfer is 150MBps
19:27<Tefad>also failure again
19:27<mikk36>overhead
19:27<Tefad>1.5Gbps or about 125MB/s
19:27<mikk36>Taking into account 8b10b coding overhead, the actual uncoded transfer-rate is 1.2 Gbit/s, or 150 megabytes per second (MB/s).
19:27<mikk36>;)
19:27<Tefad>and remember there's some loss when converting from bandwidth to transfer speed.
19:27<mikk36>see ? :D
19:28<Tefad>there's also protocol overhead
19:28<mikk36>yes
19:29<Tefad>in any event, it is a giant mess for terminology.
19:29<mikk36>but the actual max transfer speed (including overhead) is still 150/300MB/s
19:29<Tefad>using bytes is misleading
19:29<mikk36>it's what you get out of it
19:29<Tefad>bytes generally relate to file transfer rates
19:30<Tefad>i cannot count how many times people get it screwed up for network bandwidth measurements and file throughput....
19:30<mikk36>that is a different story
19:30<Tefad>not really
19:31<mikk36>here it's that 8b10b thingie
19:31<Tefad>gigabit ethernet uses the same 8b10b.
19:31<Digitalfox[Home]>So with RAID-0 and 2 Disks SATA 2, You almost get 200MB of speed/s
19:31<TheJosh>i dont care too much what the numbers are, as long as the throughput is high and the seek is low
19:31<mikk36>Digitalfox[Home], nope
19:31<mikk36>your first would have to get a disk that would do 100MB/s alone
19:31<Digitalfox[Home]>mikk36: No?
19:31<Tefad>164MB/s approx.
19:31<mikk36>which does not exist yet
19:31<Tefad>at peak.
19:32<Tefad>average will probably be something around 100MB/s
19:32<mikk36>with sata1 and usual disks i got 90MB/s
19:32<Tefad>still pretty fast.
19:32<Digitalfox[Home]>Hum... Ok..
19:32<Tefad>sata-300 doesn't offer much at the moment
19:32<Tefad>but with sataII enhancements, users can connect more than one drive to a channel
19:33<mikk36>enhancements ?
19:33<Tefad>eSATA will be useful too.
19:33<TheJosh>and there is also sata native queing
19:33<mikk36>aka NCQ
19:33<mikk36>native command queueing
19:33<Tefad>NCQ doesn't improve single file performance if disk is defragmented
19:33<Tefad>it can actually hinder performance slightly ; )
19:34<mikk36>defragmentation is never good
19:34<Tefad>but in general NCQ is advantageous
19:34<mikk36>and can never be fighted without defragmenting the drive
19:34<Tefad>defragmentation on near-full disks is unavoidable
19:34<mikk36>fought*
19:34<TheJosh>dont you mean fragmentation
19:34<mikk36>well, then just don't fill it up that much
19:34<Tefad>yup.
19:35<Tefad>also age of the filesystem affects fragmentation
19:35<Tefad>appending to files, etc.
19:35<TheJosh>although ext3 self-defragments (i dont know about reiser)
19:35<Tefad>i don't think any file system self-defragments
19:35<mikk36>isn't that in every partition in linux ?
19:35<TheJosh>juts by design (because of the file cache
19:35<mikk36>a feature of the kernel
19:35<Tefad>ext3 avoids fragmenting..
19:35<Tefad>ext3 is slow as hell though
19:35<Tefad>NTFS-3g even outperforms it.
19:36<Tefad>(that is, NTFS on linux)
19:36<mikk36>yup
19:36<Tefad>it is possible to use NTFS as your root and boot disk in linux now.
19:36<TheJosh>me, i like reiser. cant wait for reiser4
19:36<mikk36>heh
19:36<mikk36>for some reason
19:36<Tefad>isn't reiser in jail
19:36<mikk36>suse dropped using reiser
19:36<TheJosh>does grub support ntfs?
19:36<mikk36>and now defaults back to ext2
19:36<Tefad>doesn't need to
19:37<Sacro>no, it doesn't
19:37<TheJosh>how can you boot a ntfs partition then?
19:37<Tefad>ntfs supports the hooks that grub uses to find block offsets.
19:37<Sacro>you'd have to use an alternate bootloader
19:37<mikk36>chainload to windows' boot loader
19:37<Tefad>do what?
19:37<Sacro>you could have an ext3 /boot
19:37<mikk36>grub forwards booting to windows' boot loader
19:37<Sacro>but have / as ntfs
19:37<mikk36>to boot windows
19:37<Tefad>no.
19:37<TheJosh>i usually bave a small (< 30meg) boot partition thats ext2 so anything can read it
19:37<Tefad>i'm saying use NTFS as linux root file system
19:37<Tefad>TheJosh: me too
19:37<mikk36>u can't i guess
19:38<Tefad>oh, and boot file system
19:38<TheJosh>i try to keep my systems compadible so i can restore them easier
19:38<mikk36>though, using ext2 for windows is possible :P
19:38<mikk36>using hacks
19:38<TheJosh>you can boot any of my systems using a vanilla kernel
19:38<Tefad>booting from NTFS is pretty straightforward
19:39<Tefad>but using it for root requires initrd.
19:39<Tefad>since NTFS-3g is started in userspace.
19:39<mikk36>anyway
19:39<mikk36>i'll return to 3d now
19:39<Tefad>however if you boot from evms, you're using an initrd anyway
19:40<TheJosh>i guess if you wanted to be really compadible you would use vfat for your /boot
19:40<TheJosh>then you could repair linux from a win98 boot disk
19:40<Tefad>heh, is that possible? : x
19:41<TheJosh>yeah, grub can read vfat i think
19:41<Tefad>i use an ultimate boot cd for generic repairs
19:41<Tefad>if i know i'm going to fix a linux box, i usually use some linux install/live cd
19:41<TheJosh>basically if your bootloader can read it, you can use it
19:41<Tefad>you mean the booloader writer
19:41<TheJosh>me too, i have a LFS cd that I use
19:41<Tefad>bootloader
19:42<TheJosh>depends where you put the bootloader. i usually install grub to the MBR
19:42<Tefad>usually bootloaders don't even bother with filesystems.. they just have a chunk of blocks in a predefined location of the disk and works from there.
19:43<TheJosh>but grub is a bit different, its like a mini os. my favourite feature of it is the command line (with tab completion!)
19:43<Tefad>the OS is what has filesystem drivers
19:43<Tefad>ah
19:43<Tefad>this is why i don't use grub ; )
19:43<TheJosh>grub also has a menu
19:43<Tefad>lilo can be configured in interesting ways too
19:44<TheJosh>but press 'c' and you have a command line that you can use to boot just about anything (if you know the commands)
19:45<TheJosh>i have winxp on a secondary hard disk, but windows can boot from secondary disks, but grub has a feature that virtually swaps the disks, so in my grub.conf i have, under the windowsxp menu item, swap (hd1) (hd0), before the lines that make windows boot
19:46<Tefad>(i don't use windows, so most of this doesn't mean anything to me)

19:50<Tefad>and they're quite linear
19:50<Tefad>most of them are command line based.
19:51<mikk36>well, encoding can be done using basic tools
19:51<mikk36>for which i prefer virtualdub
19:51<Tefad>those are linear editors.
19:51<mikk36>yes
19:51<Tefad>now you understand
19:51<TheJosh>i like command line, except for a few things
19:51<Tefad>webbrowsing.. media editing...
19:51<TheJosh>basically
19:51<mikk36>i'd prefer to call cinerella a video studio then :)
19:51<Tefad>most things that involve only text.. i use CLI for
19:52<TheJosh>i know people who hate vi, but i like vi
19:52<mikk36>:)
19:52<Tefad>i hate vi ; )
19:52<Tefad>i hate emacs
19:52<TheJosh>although if i have a gui i use it, im not crazy
19:52<mikk36>i don't hate vi
19:52<mikk36>i just don't use it if i can use smth else
19:52<TheJosh>actually vi drives my crazy, i like vim
19:52<Tefad>i've not met a text editor that i could say i like.
19:52<mikk36>i like nano :)
19:52<Tefad>in windows, i use crimson editor
19:53<TheJosh>just make one (yate: yet another text editor)
19:53<Tefad>i like its column mode.
19:53<Tefad>i don't dislike joe enough to make my own.

19:54<TheJosh>vim all the way
19:54<Tefad>and the only reason i don't like joe much is because i've not bothered to learn how to configure it via file.
19:54<Tefad>i like joe.. i can use shift+arrows to make text selections.
19:54<Tefad>but it doesn't seem to work when i'm using a text-mode console.
19:55<TheJosh>i only know how to do about 5 things with vim (save, quit, and regex
19:55<Tefad>more than i
19:55<Tefad>!q or wq
19:56<TheJosh>:w for save :q for quit :q! for quit without save / for regex
19:56<TheJosh>n for next regex match
19:57<Tefad>sounds like less ; )
20:02<TheJosh>me h im off
20:02<TheJosh>cya round

20:47<Digitalfox[Home]>Can anybody explain me, what does "Fund local road reconstruction" Does besides making my buses become crazy traped in roads with holes?? I mean what does it really for you?
20:50<HMage`>I suspect it is a way to disrupt bus service for competitor's town
21:02<Digitalfox[Home]>And that's the only real benefict? Nothing more, like town rating going up or anything?
