03:20<CIA-3>OpenTTD: -Feature: [OSX] added more options for right click emulation (controlled from the interface tab in the patch window)
03:20<CIA-3>OpenTTD: This only works with the cocoa drivers (you will use the cocoa drivers unless you manually switched to SDL and compiled yourself)
03:20<CIA-3>OpenTTD: Note: if control-click is selected, then the ingame control-click (like presignals and such) will be command-click
03:20<CIA-3>OpenTTD: Requested and tested by ln- (so he should be blamed if this goes wrong :P )

08:45<Kloopy>I've just been browsing the wiki and can't find what I'm looking for.. I've got a Metropolitan airport that I want to upgrade to an International one. How do I do this without breaking the route of my 8 or 9 aircraft visiting this airport?
08:48<Eddi|zuHause3>Kloopy: find a time where no aircraft is on the airport, remove it, and build a new one
08:48<Kloopy>IF it has the same name as the old one, do my aircraft still find it?

08:50<Progman>if you delete a station the name will be there for some time as gray-label, if you place the new station there the name (and the orders) will used
08:51<Eddi|zuHause3>if you don't place the new airport too far away from the old one, all orders will be kept
08:56<Kloopy>Thanks for your help Eddi, Progman. :)
08:57<Sacro>i think ./configure --build=i486-mingw32
08:57<Sacro>might actually work
08:59<Sacro>i have no freetype package installed :(
09:00<Sacro>ahh i like it

09:02<Sacro>nobody flagged libpng as depending on zlib
09:04<+glx>that's a known thing :)
09:04<Sacro>what is?
09:04<+glx>libpng needs zlib
09:04<Sacro>ahh yes
09:05<Sacro>well the guy who wrote the package didn't put it as a needed dependancy
09:05<Sacro>so i just flagged it

09:32<MrBrrr>Any train buffs around?

09:47<+glx>IRL yes
09:47<Sacro>it charges them up
09:47|-|manveru [] has joined #openttd
09:55<Eddi|zuHause3>germany had steam engine that could be controlled from a drivers cab at the other end of the train
09:57<MrBrrr>Wouldn't that mean that they'd be "blind" while going forward and/of backwards?
09:57<+glx>the driver is still in front of train
09:57<Eddi|zuHause3>no, the driver goes to the end that will be the front
09:57<MrBrrr>Will it go as fast in reverse?
09:58<MrBrrr>I mean, if it's pushing the wagons?
09:58<Eddi|zuHause3>yes, it's pretty symmetric
09:59<+glx>MrBrrr: never used subway ?

10:08|-|Frostregen_ [] has joined #openttd
10:11<Eddi|zuHause3>pretty much all modern trains are now built with a drivers cab at the other end
10:11<MrBrrr>Hmmmm, nice.
10:13<Eddi|zuHause3>it's one of the most missing "realism" features of ottd...

10:14<ln->notice how german trains do not have mirrors.

10:16<Eddi|zuHause3>the "train leader" always stands on the platform giving starting signal
10:17<Eddi|zuHause3>there's no need for mirrors
10:17<+glx>they have video here
10:18<+glx>(B&W but it's enough)
10:18<ln->Eddi|zuHause3: even in freight trains?
10:18<Eddi|zuHause3>i have no idea about freight trains
10:20<MrBrrr>I'm trying to find out how to remove that automatic "turn-around" trains do in TTD.
10:20<MrBrrr>Without creating an even bigger "realism" problem.
10:21|-|skidd13 [] has joined #openttd
10:23<Eddi|zuHause3>well, not turning the train around is probably easy, just declare the last wagon as "front engine", with all cached data etc., and update all "first" pointers of the vehicles
10:24<Eddi|zuHause3>the next problem is disallowing that for trains where it is not realistic
10:25<Eddi|zuHause3>and then allow switching the engine at terminus stations, without turning the wagons
10:25<+glx>Bjarni already tried
10:25<MrBrrr>Anywho, off to campus. Cya all later.

12:10<svip>One of the most obscure film techniques though.
12:11<svip>Hmm, Eddi|zuHause3.
12:11<svip>What controls which tool is currently selected?
12:23<Eddi|zuHause3>how would i know...
12:23<Eddi|zuHause3>and yes, "Montage" was kind of a play on words
12:24<Eddi|zuHause3>it only works in german, though
12:34<Phazorx>"montage" is actualy french as i recal
12:34<Phazorx>but "du hasst montage" does sound kinda interesting :)
12:35<Eddi|zuHause3>yeah, that's the other half of the play on words, the meaning of the totally unrelated french derived word...
12:35<@Belugas>"du hasst montage" sounds almost like Rammstein :D
12:36<Eddi|zuHause3>yeah, but they used a different play on words :)
12:36<@Belugas>of course :)
12:36<Eddi|zuHause3>their play on words involved "du hasst" [you hate] and "du hast" [you have]

12:38<@Belugas>interesting how just a single letter can totalyy change the meaning of a sentence :)
12:38<Phazorx>are they still using double ss character in german?
12:39<Phazorx>the one that looks like beta
12:39<Eddi|zuHause3>actually, double ss is the new spelling
12:39<Eddi|zuHause3>old spellingis "du haßt"
12:40<Phazorx>i was under impression that was "provintial" dialectial differences
12:40<Phazorx>or it is completely standartized now?
12:40<Eddi|zuHause3>german spelling has been standardised since 1901
12:41<Phazorx>and both ways are acceptable ?
12:41<Phazorx>when i was studing it, ß was the only way
12:41<Eddi|zuHause3>usage of ß has been discouraged in the early days of computer processing, because they could not use the letter
12:41<+glx>now they can
12:42<Phazorx>heh thanks to ebsdic/ibm
12:42<@Belugas>obviously :D
12:42<Phazorx>they did save 2 bits tho
12:43<Eddi|zuHause3>there the usage diverged in east and west, while in west germany, ß was replaced by ss, it was replaced by sz in east germany
12:43<Eddi|zuHause3>so when the computers could handle the letter, the east german way could easily be reversed
12:43<blathijs>Brilliant :-)
12:43<Eddi|zuHause3>as sz is hardly used in written language
12:44<Phazorx>heh find / * |sed s/sz/ß/
12:44<Eddi|zuHause3>so ß was in common use in east germany, while the west germans used it less
12:45<Phazorx>naturaly i studied east german then... umlauts probably have been supressed as well in early computer era?
12:45<Eddi|zuHause3>so in the 1996 spelling reform, official usage of ß got reduced (but not abolished (except in switzerland))
12:45<Eddi|zuHause3>(((yay for standards))) :p
12:45<svip>At least I know now that when a tool selected, _place_proc is set.
12:45<svip>Actually, it points to a function.
12:45<svip>So how do I check if it is not pointing at anything?
12:46<+glx>!=NULL ?
12:46<Eddi|zuHause3>Phazorx: actually, no, "umlauts" were replaced with "ae", "oe", "ue", and that could be replaced on both sides equally
12:46|-|KritiK [] has joined #openttd
12:47<Eddi|zuHause3>as those are also letter combinations that hardly occur otherwise
12:47<Phazorx>heh... still ugly... not like german words were too short before
12:47<Phazorx>and after doubleing on letters in some cases
12:47<Eddi|zuHause3>anyway, since the 1996 reform, "du hasst" is the only right spelling
12:48<Eddi|zuHause3>you only write 'ß' after long vowel or diphtong
12:48<Phazorx>they could sing it there and "a" would get rather long :)
12:49<Eddi|zuHause3>note that there is a big difference between "Maße" (measurements) and "Masse" (mass)
12:50<Phazorx>so instead of simplifying it

12:57<skidd13>Hi Bjarni
12:57<Phazorx>and there was never a ë and ï ?
12:57<@Bjarni>so you are saying that I wasted time learning ß?
12:57<@Bjarni>hi skidd13
12:58<skidd13>Bjarni: I had a quick look at the cmd which builds the bridge. And noticed something.
13:01<Eddi|zuHause3>Phazorx: there was occasionally, but with completely different meaning... probably influenced by french... it never got common usage
13:02<Phazorx>ironic, these are the only 2 which are used in cyrilic :)
13:02<skidd13>Bjarni: In tunnelbridge_cmd.cpp compare line 402 and 371 ... The 402 is senseless cause it would be called at 402 either or?
13:03<Eddi|zuHause3>there is an actor and comedian here, whose name is spelt "Hoëcker"
13:04<+glx>Phazorx: I can't remember ï used in cyrillic
13:04<Phazorx>would it be pronouced any different from Höcker?
13:04<Phazorx>glx: ukranian and serbian
13:04<Phazorx>not in russian
13:04<+glx>that explains :)
13:05<Eddi|zuHause3>because that is one of the rare occurances of the letter combinaton "oe", they put the darhesis there, to enforce the differentiated pronouncing, "Ho - ecker"
13:05<Phazorx>Eddi|zuHause3: i see
13:06<Eddi|zuHause3>like i said, ë and ï have absolutely nothing to do with "umlauts"
13:06<Sionide>Do saved games save what windows you have open + their positions?
13:06<Eddi|zuHause3>Sionide: no.
13:06<Sionide>would be a useful patch perhaps...
13:07<Sionide>has it already been discussed possibly?
13:07<@Bjarni>skidd13: odd. They look alike, but they aren't the same
13:07<Eddi|zuHause3>Sionide: not useful in multiplayer
13:07<@Bjarni>still looks odd
13:07<ln->tolkien uses ä and ë and stuff as non-umlauts, too.
13:08<@Bjarni>I guess somebody added the no crossing bridges if before the switch without looking in the switch
13:08<@Bjarni>I don't think this could cause the bug in question though
13:09<Phazorx>Bjarni/skidd13 since you are looking there - can you tell me why tunnel/brige heads are flagged as no pass zone for rvs ?

13:15<Eddi|zuHause3>anyway, ë and ï are not umlauts, and fall in this category:
13:15<Phazorx>Eddi|zuHause3: can you describe the difference?
13:15<Phazorx>both phonetically change the sound
13:15<Eddi|zuHause3>read the link :)
13:17<Phazorx>i did can not really comprehend it tho :)
13:18<Phazorx>the 1st sentence i can not agree
13:18<Eddi|zuHause3>a diaresis does not actually change the sound of the vowel itself, it only suppresses the combination of vowels to form a diphtong
13:18<Phazorx>both in russian and ukranian it is phonetical modification, same natuare as umlauts

16:42<@Bjarni>spam mails are illegal in Denmark due to a law that bans door to door salesmen/advertising and random phonecalls to sell stuff. Great law
