05:04<Nickman>what? OMG ROFL LOL W000T

05:08<Nickman>Gonna try it in a sec ;)
05:10<Nickman>with the 32-bpp blitter, my game gets choppy even when no png files for 32bpp are loaded...
05:10<Nickman>there is a bug ;)
05:11<TrueBrain>Nickman: 32bpp-anim or 32bpp-simple
05:12<TrueBrain>what kind of hardware?
05:12<TrueBrain>how does it preform against 8bpp-simple?
05:12<Nickman>when there are no vehicles an stuff, everything goos as smooth as possible, but on the startscreen for example with the in game animations on the background, it get choppy
05:12<Nickman>core 2 duo E6600
05:13<TrueBrain>What is the screen depth? Dual monitor?
05:13<TrueBrain>What kind of video-card?
05:13<Nickman>havn't tried 8bbp-simple
05:13<Nickman>geforce 8800 GTS 320 MB
05:13<Nickman>1920x1200 (I think :D)
05:14<TrueBrain>can you compile with sdl support and try -v sdl
05:14<TrueBrain>as I really don't see how it can be slow on such a machine
05:14<TrueBrain>here it runs normally
05:14<Nickman>well, the smaller the screen the more fluent it goes :)
05:14<TrueBrain>which resolution is non-fluent?
05:14<Nickman>I can only compile in Visual studio
05:15<Nickman>can you set a certain resolution?
05:15<Nickman>I just drag it so... :p
05:15<TrueBrain>yeah, about which resolution is slow?
05:15<TrueBrain>dual monitor, 2048xsomething, still as fast as 8bpp....
05:16<Nickman>screen is nog at 959 width and 837 height and it get choppy when alot of things are moving on the startscreen
05:17<TrueBrain>it has to be noted that 32bpp-simple is absolutely not optimized in any way
05:17<TrueBrain>so it is slow
05:17<TrueBrain>but it should be as slow as 8bpp-simple
05:17<Nickman>I'll try the 8 bpp
05:17<TrueBrain>with the only differense that it is just a bit more slow, because of the 32bpp alpha stuff :p
05:17<TrueBrain>but I have a simple AMD 3000+ here
05:17<TrueBrain>and I don't notice it :p
05:18<TrueBrain>in FastForward it is slower, I blieve 30% or something
05:18<Nickman>with the 8bpp, no problem what so ever
05:18<TrueBrain>hmmm, we need to trace this :)
05:18<TrueBrain>some day ;)
05:18<TrueBrain>try 32bpp-anum
05:18<TrueBrain>try 32bpp-anim
05:18<TrueBrain>but disable Full Animation in-game
05:19<TrueBrain>should be much slower :p
05:19<Nickman>32bpp-simple is very slow where 8bpp-simple runs very smooth so... :s
05:20<Nickman>this is weard...
05:22<Nickman>here is a little bug in your bricks :
05:22<Nickman>there is a hight difference I believe
05:22<Nickman>and the slopes differ to little from the level tiles :s
05:23<TrueBrain>you do know ctrl+s makes a screenshot, right?
05:23<TrueBrain>and that is no bug
05:23<Nickman>so? :D
05:23<TrueBrain>the tiles go downwards a bit later
05:24<TrueBrain>but I understand it looks confusing
05:24<TrueBrain>I will see if I can move the tile downwards sooner
05:24<TrueBrain>but that looks ugly at the bottom
05:24<TrueBrain>so I doubt that
05:24<TrueBrain>but I can always try :)
05:24<TrueBrain>but for now, bbl
05:24<Nickman>cya ;)

06:11<Greyscale>How can I improve the performance of a server on a less-than-hot connection?
06:12<Eddi|zuHause>increase net_frame_freq?
06:12<Eddi|zuHause>limit the number of clients?
06:13|-|ThePizzaKing [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:13<Eddi|zuHause>it is said that one client takes up 3kb/s, if you set net_frame_freq = 3 then this would lower to 1kb/s
06:13|-|TinoDidriksen [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:14[~]frosch123 is happy
06:14<Greyscale>well, it SHOULD have 240KB/s bandwidth
06:14<Greyscale>and its not overloading the CPU
06:14[~]frosch123 can reproduce the "65533 kirby paul tanks" bug
06:15|-|ThePizzaKing [] has joined #openttd

09:01|-|eQualizer [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:01<frosch123>There was a bit luck involved.
09:07|-|thgergo [] has joined #openttd
09:12<@Belugas>just saw your addition to bug report
09:12<@Belugas>looks like ...hurg
09:13<frosch123>Well, I don't think I am myself able to fix it.
09:13<@Bjarni>based on that description, I have an idea on where the bug is
09:13<@Bjarni>but not how to fix it
09:14|-|Diabolic-Angel [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
09:14<@Bjarni>but the description is good
09:14<frosch123>What me bothers most is, that the engine counts are changed, before the vehicles get removed.
09:15<@Bjarni>I didn't like that part either
09:15|-|CobraA1 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
09:15<@Bjarni>but to be honest, when I coded this, I tested it, but I didn't crash test it well
09:16<@Bjarni>if people would just behave, then nobody would have notice any bugs in collisions :p
09:16[~]Bjarni notes that he will not drive with frosch123
09:18<frosch123>Bjarni: <- then you should not drive with smatz either.
09:19<@Bjarni>I know a lot of people I wouldn't drive with
09:19<@Bjarni>and I know a lot of people I would drive with (luckily I'm in the last group)
09:20<@Bjarni>it would be bad to drive so reckless that you wouldn't want to get in a car with yourself
09:20<frosch123>Yust get drunken
09:20<@Bjarni>I never do that
09:22<@Bjarni>well, I have declared myself temporally unable to drive, but that was due to being ill, not drunk
09:28<TrueBrain>Blue Dragon is addicting :)
09:29|-|eQualizer [] has joined #openttd
09:33<TrueBrain>Nickman: the tile you said looked wrong, can't be done more correctly... I see that in some cases it looks a bit weird, but there is no real way to fix it, so it seems
09:34<TrueBrain>hmm, in fact, one other way might help
09:34<Nickman>hehe :d
09:38<TrueBrain>ah, yes, that looks better :)
09:48|-|lolman [~lolman@adsl-87-102-80-216.karoo.KCOM.COM] has joined #openttd
10:01<Greyscale>32bpp is done how
10:02<TrueBrain>as it is coded in the source, that is how it is done
10:03|-|Peakki [] has joined #openttd
10:04<TrueBrain>like asking how a bird flies
10:04<Eddi|zuHause>hm... when did we make the transition from "it is done when it is done" to "it is done how it is done"?
10:05<+glx>well the first one is for unfinished stuff
10:06<TrueBrain>the second is for very unclear questions

10:15<Nickman>can you show your solution TrueBrain?
10:16<TrueBrain>Nickman: yeah, in a moment
10:16<TrueBrain>currently I am trying to find a fast way to make tiles for other colors
10:22<TrueBrain>cool, I can crash blender
10:26<TrueBrain>the color-node system of Blender is amazing :)
10:32|-|Diabolic-Angel [] has joined #openttd
10:34<TrueBrain>you can put all kind of systems between the inputs and outputs
10:35<TrueBrain>to modify the color of an object
10:35<TrueBrain>based on.. pretty much everything
10:35<TrueBrain>from coordinates, to color
10:35<TrueBrain>mixing, everything

11:13<SmatZ>errr if you are talking about the last comment, I was just asking Rubidium if it is worth continuing to work on that , because Rubidium said there will be some changes in the code
11:13<SmatZ>and if the concept is OK :)
11:28<CIA-3>OpenTTD: richk * r10990 /branches/NewGRF_ports/ (bin/data/realworldairports.grf src/station_cmd.cpp):

11:28<CIA-3>OpenTTD: realworldairports.grf uses feature in all three airports, for under antennas, radars, etc.

11:36<Nickman>now lego land looks all sad TrueBrain... :(
11:39<TrueBrain>yeah, I am in a sad mood :p
11:39<TrueBrain>stupid Blender :p
11:41<TrueBrain>I just want to change the color of material after a few frames
11:41<TrueBrain>sounds like a basic thing, I mean... you want things to change color of time, not?
11:44<TrueBrain>ah, think I found it
11:47<Greyscale>how can I stop it autosaving every month?
11:47<Greyscale>autosave = yearly is already done but its ignoring it
12:01|-|Wolf01 [] has joined #openttd
12:01<TrueBrain>hi Wolf01! :)
12:19<svip>How do you stop a python script?
12:20<svip>I mean.
12:20<svip>Jump out of the script.
12:20<svip>Well... stop the entire execution.
12:22<Wolf01>press the x
12:22<svip>What the hell?
12:22<svip>I am writing the script.
12:22<svip>And I have a case where I want execution to stop.
12:22<Wolf01>maybe there is an "exit" or "break"
12:22<svip>break is out of a loop.
12:22<svip>Everyone knows that.
12:22<svip>It's not exit, quit or stop.
12:24<Wolf01>Python has no statement to exit execution of a program or module before "running off the end". You could use sys.exit(), but this requires an initial import sys.
12:24<svip>Good thing I need sys for something else.
12:24<svip>! So it's already imported. :D
12:26<Wolf01>return x-y, x+y <- wtf?
12:26<SpComb>sys.exit raises a SystemExit exception
12:27<SpComb>ideally, you'd just return from your main function and then drop off the end of the module
12:27|-||Jeroen| [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
12:27<SpComb>the usual def main (...) : .... if __name__ == '__main__' : main() pattern
12:28<SpComb>with command-line argument parsing in the if, and then calling main with the processed arguments
12:30|-||Jeroen| [] has joined #openttd
12:33<svip>Hm, SpComb.
12:33<svip>I don't see the exception though.
12:34<svip>Or is it caught somewhere?
12:35<SpComb>it's an internal python thing
12:36<svip>Will Python run main() by itself?
12:36<SpComb>no, see the if stuff above
12:36<svip>if __name__ == '__main__' : main() << Sorry I'm not quite sure I follow.
12:37<svip>Where is this?
12:37<svip>Inside main() or after it?
12:38<SpComb>although I think the getopt stuff goes outside the main function
12:39<svip>sys.exit() in mine does happen upon an IOError.
12:39<svip>I just wanted to write my own personal insult to the user.

13:51<@Bjarni>maybe you can answer this one
13:52<Maedhros>hmm. i haven't really looked at the town road layouts
13:53<skidd13>I looked at it too much ;)
13:54<Maedhros>for what it's worth the switch (dir % 4) { } could be turned into dir & 3 with a table lookup
13:54<Maedhros>although the compiler might do that for you anyway

14:22<skidd13>svip: why?
14:22<svip>Dunno if Bjarni has already told you, but it reminds me too much of the Danish word for "shit".
14:22<@Bjarni>didn't think of that
14:22<@Bjarni>damn you svip
14:22<@Belugas>reminds me of Skiddley Diddley :) So i'm cool with it :D
14:23<@Bjarni>now you made me think of skidd13 as a shitty person :(
14:23<svip>I don't apologies for my native language!
14:24<@Bjarni>that's the spirit
14:24<skidd13>No problem there are lot of names that sounds strange
14:24<@Bjarni>sounds like the jettekuk quote X)
14:25<@Bjarni>some UK guy named Jettek had this nick and somebody mentioned that jette kuk means giant cock in Swedish

15:06|-|KouDy [user@] has joined #openttd
15:07<skidd13>Why shame? It would be cool to spread openttd all over the world. These spreadshirts are more or less public relations.
15:07<Sionide>i hate wearing t-shirts that everyone asks what it is on it...
15:08<@Bjarni>solution: don't wear a t-shirt
15:08<skidd13>Sionide: That's what they are for :D
15:09<Sionide> daft punk, with hands...!
15:09<@Belugas>thus spread shirt :)
15:10<@Belugas>never heard the name before
15:10<@Belugas>we've made "spreadshirts" for our diving club.even my kid has one :)

15:46<@Bjarni>next will be the signal system and ATC (those two are closely related)

15:58<@Bjarni>our signal system is really old (safe, but old and causes delays due to wear), so it needs to be replaced. Whenever EU finishes working out how the standard should be (they will finish in 1-3 years or so), we will go for a complete replacement

17:26<Smoovious>but the company who owned t he line, sold it to them
17:26<@Bjarni>the owner will then be compensated, but it's not a showstopper
17:26<@Bjarni>yeah, that's stupid
17:27<Smoovious>I have t he same problem... I keep allmost everything, even if I don't have a current use for it... and too often, right after I get rid of it, I find a use for it
17:27<Smoovious>it was the only line we had left touching downtown
17:28[~]Smoovious shrugs.
17:29<Smoovious>could have e expanded our passenger rail service with thhat line... as it is now, not much we can do, with the current station sitting right on a major through-line... single-tracked in that section too
17:29<Smoovious>so we only have 1 service which leaves at 6:30a, and returns after 11p
17:30<Eddi|zuHause>i never heard much good about passenger rail in the USA
17:30<@Bjarni>here there are some politicians, who wants to spent a fortune (tax money) in order to turn a closed shipyard into some cultural... something. One of the politicians noticed the railroad in front of it and declared in public that he wanted it closed because it spoiled his dream of this cultural place
17:31<Smoovious>there was this large station c omplex t hat was built next to the freeway at the northern end of the Norfolk Southhern yard here in town... they even brought i n ana old steamer and caboose, restoreed, for display...
17:31<Smoovious>it looked real promising as it wa g oing up
17:31<@Bjarni>I think sanity went down the drain. The line is in use and have 20 minute intervals
17:32<Smoovious>but it isn't serviced b y a single train... there are 2 tracks behind it so the yard can still get in and out... but the complex, whihch looks like a train station... is being used as a trucking terminal
17:32<@Bjarni>for passenger service
17:33<Smoovious><Eddi|zuHause> i never heard much good about passenger rail in the USA <--- passenger rail here doesn't have the lobbyists that air and trucking have... they gov't put together Amtrak, and year after year, choke the life out of it... if they properlly supported it, we would have had a good widespread service now
17:34<Smoovious>as it stands tho... Amtrak service is spotty at best... and all you reallly have are t he deplorable travellilng condition at the airports
17:35<Smoovious><Bjarni> I think sanity went down the drain. The line is in use and have 20 minute intervals <--- maybe the rail company should establish a new lilne... one that goes through t he politico's house, and take it via eminent domain, so he can h ave his cultural pllace
17:35<@Bjarni>I read about the teamster union vs Maersk case.... looked to me like the teamsters wanted to completely control the transport marked and used modern mafia methods :s
17:35[~]Smoovious snorts.
17:36<Smoovious>the teamsters were always more involved in their own interests than their memberrship... mafia-like is aabout right... very accurate...
17:36<@Bjarni>they went like "if you want to transport anything here, you can only do that with our people, so you will have to pay us to be allowed to transport goods"
17:37<@Bjarni>however Maersk didn't just apply to their demands. I don't know what the end result is though
17:37<@Bjarni>but if the teamsters wants to play it tough, then Maersk can play it tough too
17:37<@Bjarni>it's the worlds biggest container shipping company
17:38<Smoovious>unions have their place, and lots of unions are doing a good job for their membershihp... but groups like the teamsters... do more to hurt the economy and the companies they deal with, than anything else, IMHO
17:38<@Bjarni>and it's surprisingly not a company, that moves cash around to avoid taxes or tread their staff so they have union issues
17:39<Smoovious>I don't join a union unless I have no other choice... I've always been able to do better negotiating my own contract than any union ever did for me
17:39<Smoovious>the unnion reallly only helps those people who aren't worth what they're being paid
17:39<@Bjarni>both yes and no
17:40<@Bjarni>(mainly yes though)
17:40<Smoovious>its funny how all my highest-paying jobs were non-union, and the lowest-ppaying jobs, were union... the non-union companies have a lot more flexibility
17:40<@Bjarni>sometimes companies start to treat people like dirt and then the union helps getting the unpaid salary and stuff
17:41<Smoovious>bah... the company would have died eventuallly anyways
17:41<Smoovious>there's more keeping their membership in line than there is fighting for their membership going on
17:42<@Bjarni>unions kills flexibility. Here they have declared that train drivers shouldn't work overtime, so if a train is late (and it's the end of the drivers shift), it can end up with him not being allowed to finish even if he wants to. The union can tell him to stop where he is and wait for another driver to turn up and finish the run
17:43<@Bjarni>so it could take ages for him to go the last say 15 km so he can get home. That was not a problem until the union butted in :s
17:43<Smoovious>yeah, that too... they get in my way more than help
17:44<Smoovious>there have been several times where raises came around, and i got told they tried to bump me up to more pay cuz of the work I did for them, but the union contract wouldn't allow it
17:45<@Bjarni>well, they should have said something in Canada... the railroad allowed 2 hours for sleep for a train crew. Afterwards they jumped on a moving train they should take over (took too long to stop) and fell asleep, ran a red light and made a headon collision
17:45<Smoovious>and then there was a max ceiling I could be paid for the work... ... ... what kind of union is going to get in t he way of a company wanting to pay me more money?!!!
17:45<@Bjarni>it appears like all 5 people on board fell asleep
17:45<@Bjarni>because the railroad refused to let them sleep
17:46<@Bjarni>not good
17:46<Smoovious>well, things like that are handled by the federal DOT rules for # of hours you can drive... and if you violate t hem, first offense is a suspension... 2nd, a year suspension... and you couldl havve your licene to drive, revoked
17:47<@Bjarni>Smoovious: it's a communistic way of thinking. Everybody should be treated equally and they will perform equally and everybody will be equally happy
17:48<@Bjarni>Smoovious: err... the railroad said that the crew should work or get fired for refusing work, so the crew had no choice. The railroad company ended up getting some of the blame as well
17:49<Smoovious>like, for trucking... I can only drive withhin the first 14 hours since I came on duty, unless I put in 8 hours in the sleeper... after the 14 hours, I need 10 qualified hours of rest to reset t h e clock... then the 11/10 rule... for every 11 hours of driving, I have to have 10 hours off-duty... and then no driving if I put in nmore than 70 on-duty hours within 8 days
17:50<Smoovious>the 14-hour rule counts on-duty and driving time together, as well as the 70/8 rule... the 11/10-hour rule, only counts driving time
17:50<@Bjarni>yeah, the railroad has rules like that as well, but if you get the message to violate them or get fired, then you have an issue
17:51<TrueBrain>Bjarni: not really; you always have your own responsibility
17:51<Smoovious>if we get told to continue driving, we have whistleblower protection, and thhe company will get fineed o r charged
17:51<@Bjarni>yeah, but it's still an issue
17:51<@Bjarni>but you will still lose your job
17:51<Smoovious>no, we won't
17:51<Smoovious>if we do, we have a cause o f action against the company
17:52<Smoovious>and thhe DOT will go after them on our behalf
17:52<@Bjarni>and you trust the company not to find some other reason to get rid of you ASAP?
17:52<Smoovious>the DOT represents the drivers... not the companies
17:52<TrueBrain>if you get fired because you refused to work because you aren't allowed by law, the company will suffer terrible :p
17:52<TrueBrain>even if they put up an other excuse, doesn't matter
