10:50<TrueBrain>oh boy, we need to rewrite some books now...
10:51|-|Nite [] has joined #openttd
10:52<ln->funny that they only talk about lower domestic heating costs, while a device producing energy from nothing would have a bit more range possible uses.
10:53<TrueBrain>ln-: indeed, so most likely there is some really big catch for this to work, which makes it impossible to use in other things
10:53<Rubidium>sounds a little like cold fusion happening
10:53<TrueBrain>Rubidium: for me it reads more that the catalyst breaks the H2O bridge, producing heat
10:54<TrueBrain>either way, I truely wonder how long such 'device' will last...
10:54<Rubidium>from a black-box point of view it's the same: you put some energy in it and you get more energy out of it
10:54<TrueBrain>Rubidium: depends on what you define as 'energy in'
10:54<TrueBrain>Water has also energy
10:54<TrueBrain>very much in fact
10:55<TrueBrain>as in all other cases you could wire up the end of the tube to the begin of the tube
10:55<Eddi|zuHause3>err... but breaking the H2O molecules consumes energy
10:55<TrueBrain>and have infinite energy
10:55<TrueBrain>Eddi|zuHause3: some catalyst are known to do something 'for free' wher enormally it would take energy to do so
10:56<Eddi|zuHause3>no, they usually only reduce the activation energy, before the reaction starts at all
10:56<TrueBrain>anyway, for the reason ln- says, and for the reason you can't make infinite energy, there is something they are not telling
10:56<TrueBrain>Eddi|zuHause3: one type of catalyst, yes, and even that type can work in this case
10:56|-|Osai [] has joined #openttd
10:57<Eddi|zuHause3>yeah, that's my thought, too...
10:57<Rubidium>I suspect that there is coming less water out than there goes in
10:57<TrueBrain>Rubidium: it wouldn't suprise me
10:57<Eddi|zuHause3>but i really have to keep on reading papers on model checking of component systems
10:58<TrueBrain>Eddi|zuHause3: enjoy :p I am going to make myself some food
10:58<TrueBrain>by putting fire under an iron piece
10:58<TrueBrain>nothing fancy about that ;)
10:58<Eddi|zuHause3>i have this exercise for 2 weeks, and 1.5 weeks of that are over :p
10:59<Eddi|zuHause3>fire? in what kind of cave do you live?
10:59<Rubidium>so you still have 84 hours left ;)
10:59<TrueBrain>ask Rubidium, he has been here
10:59<Eddi|zuHause3>a little less i think
11:00<Eddi|zuHause3>the meeting is wednesday at 11, and i have to post my results a day before
11:00<Rubidium>so 54 hours
11:02<TrueBrain>so stop IRCing
11:02<TrueBrain>wait, let me help you
11:02<TrueBrain>@kick Eddi|zuHause3 go study
11:02|-|Eddi|zuHause3 kicked [#openttd] DorpsGek [go study]
11:02<TrueBrain>I love doing that :)

11:02<TrueBrain>he now, don't come back, that aint fair! :p
11:02[~]TrueBrain hugs Eddi|zuHause3
11:02<Eddi|zuHause3>you need some kind of anger management? :p
11:03<ln->we do need a replacement for Tron.
11:04<Rubidium>_minime_: do I read the newgrf specs correctly when I read them as: the only information you have during an engine callback is the part index?
11:04<Eddi|zuHause3>i can do that ;)
11:04<Rubidium>*articulated engine callback
11:04<TrueBrain>Eddi|zuHause3: finally someone who steps up!
11:04[~]TrueBrain prepares his @kick commands
11:04<TrueBrain>this is going to be so much fun :)
11:05<Eddi|zuHause3>well, i do can bitch about any kind of style misusage in every commit :p
11:07<ln->heeeey, how do i test force feedback on linux?
11:07<Eddi|zuHause3>there must be a libforcefeedback somewhere :p
11:08<Eddi|zuHause3>there's a lib<whatever> for <whatever>

13:08<DaleStan>Rubidium: Since you're playing with callbacks, it looks like there's still a bug in Open's callback handling. In 8 bit callbacks, the high 7 bits of 15-bit return values are discarded. (80FF, 81FF, 82FF, 83FF, ..., FCFF, FEFF, FFFF) are all equivalent for 8-bit callbacks.
13:09<DaleStan>The 8-bit callbacks are all callbacks not documented as being 15-bit.
13:09<Rubidium>DaleStan: I've got very little knowledge about the whole callback stuff, especially those "cornercases"
13:11|-|thgerg1 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:11<CIA-1>OpenTTD: truelight * r11119 /trunk/src/ (fileio.cpp fileio.h gfxinit.cpp newgrf_config.cpp):
13:11<CIA-1>OpenTTD: -Codechange: analyze .tar files upon loading, remembering their files and offsets, which speeds up .tar handling with a big factor
13:11<CIA-1>OpenTTD: -Fix: several win32 .tar support problems
13:11<CIA-1>OpenTTD: -Fix: better checking of .tar versions and other minor things
13:11<CIA-1>OpenTTD: -Codechange: don't call fclose() but FioFClose to close a file
13:13|-|Strid [] has joined #openttd
13:13|-|thgerg1 [] has joined #openttd
13:13<Rubidium>and I've slapped peter1138 quite a few times about that issue as it is on the tracker and needs to be fixed, but without a real knowledge of NewGRFs and especially the actual workings of the callbacks I don't think it's very wise to tinker with them.
13:14<DaleStan>Would it help if I updated the patch to something more recent?
13:14<Rubidium>furthermore I can't really compare TTDP with OTTD because I fail to get TTDPW working under Wine and TTDPD works way too slow under dosbox on my computer to be anywhere near useable
13:14<_minime_>Rubidium: hmm, that should work, since the num_vehicles should be based on results of that callback anyway, right?
13:14|-|thgergo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:15<Rubidium>_minime_: it first performs the callback cycle to get the length and then it does it again to actually create the vehicles
13:17|-|thgergo [] has joined #openttd
13:17|-|thgergo [] has left #openttd []
13:17<_minime_>yep, that's better that what i've done
13:17<TrueBrain>finally he leaves himself..
13:17<TrueBrain>I was about to ban the IP..
13:17<DaleStan>Does Open support the GRF registers (vars 7C and 7D) yet? If/when it does, there may be some subtle differences between calling a callback once and calling it twice. Especially with 7C, though that doesn't apply to vehicles.
13:18<Rubidium>DaleStan: you mean the 0x110 register thingy?
13:18|-|Diabolic-Angel [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
13:20<_minime_>nope, those are in the 60+x range (parametrized variables) in varaction2

13:20<Noldo>Rubidium: I managed to make the OverflowSafeInt template compile yesterday
13:20<DaleStan>Well, there are 110h GRF registers.
13:20<@Bjarni>home sweet home
13:20<@Bjarni>did you miss me?
13:21<SmatZ>a lot!
13:21<Rubidium>hmm, 7C+7D are persistent? If so, then it isn't implemented
13:22|-|thgerg1 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:23|-|Farden123 [] has joined #openttd
13:23<Rubidium>oh, 7D is to the temp 110h long register (of which you can't use the last 16)
13:23<DaleStan>7D is guaranteed persistent through the end of the callback or sprite lookup. (So, it should probably be memset(0)'d regularly.) 7C is initialized to 0 on a new game, and then guaranteed persistent through the entire game.
13:24<DaleStan>Can't *read* the last 16. You can still pass additional data back to the host in them.
13:24<Rubidium>7D is implemented, 7C isn't
13:26<Rubidium>operator 10h-13h aren't implemented either
13:26<DaleStan>So if 7D is cleared on a regular basis (before every callback or sprite lookup) everything should be OK. Otherwise, it could cause desyncs or different returns for two should-be-identical callback calls.

13:30<Rubidium>how long should the temporary store be available?
13:30<Rubidium>between callbacks, or only during a single callback?
13:31<DaleStan>AIUI, it's only guaranteed to be persistent for the duration of a single callback or sprite lookup.

15:33<SmatZ>I think people idling here just want to express their support for openttd
15:34<Prof_Frink>Bjarni: 'cause I've just got back from the Lakes and am knackered.

15:39<Eddi|zuHause3>hm, in another channel this worked :p
15:39<mikk36>why exactly me ? :P
15:39<SmatZ>because I don't remember you saying something :-p
15:39<@Bjarni>because you should ruin your idle :P
15:40<@Bjarni>wow... you have a great idle. Reply: what?.... oh shit
15:40<mcbane>hes only poking random ppls.
15:40<SmatZ>last time we did this test, there were people who never said anything
15:40<mikk36>nice :P
15:40<@Bjarni>mute people
15:40<Eddi|zuHause3>in the other channel it looked like this:

15:41<@Bjarni>not so nice
15:41<@Bjarni>sounds like a waste of resources
15:42<SmatZ>maybe they read everything we type here
15:42<Eddi|zuHause3>but at least 3 of those people responded then
15:42<@Bjarni>unless it's some channel like #openttd.notice
15:42<Eddi|zuHause3>one went like "only 7th?!?"
15:43<SmatZ>I had a record in one channel - I left when the bot was not working, and it counted me as if I was still there
15:43<Eddi|zuHause3>damn, i'm running out of disk space...
15:43<SmatZ>so I had idle time like one year
15:43<mikk36>well, for those guys, there is a game called idlerpg :P
15:44<Eddi|zuHause3>i recorded like 5 movies today, and don't have time to cut them...
15:44<@Bjarni>been there. Done that
15:44<Eddi|zuHause3>commercials are like 30% of the filesize...
15:45<Eddi|zuHause3>meaning in 20GB of recordings, over 7GB are waste...
15:45<SmatZ>I have recorder 16 series of The Simpsons and I am still waiting to have time to convert them from MPEG2 to MPEG4... they are now ~400GB in size, one episode ~700MB
15:45<@Bjarni>only 20 GB recordings?
15:46<Rubidium>SmatZ: haha (the one by Nelson)
15:46<@Bjarni>then you don't want to know how much I recorded :/
15:47<@Bjarni>what Nelson one?
15:47<Eddi|zuHause3>700MB? mine (from today) are only like 550MB
15:47|-|TinoM [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
15:47<Eddi|zuHause3>Bjarni: 20GB from today...
15:48<SmatZ>Bjarni: similiar to

15:48<SmatZ> this one is better :)
15:48<@Bjarni>20 GB during one day.... that usually indicate that you recorded too much
15:50<Eddi|zuHause3>i currently have 140GB in uncut recordings
15:51<Eddi|zuHause3>well, i recorded movies from yesterday again, in the hope to cut out all remnants of commercial breaks and other stuff (program announcements in the middle of the movie)
15:51<Eddi|zuHause3>sometimes they put the commercials in other places
15:52<Eddi|zuHause3>so i can remove any signs of a cut by interleaving both recordings
15:52<@Bjarni>I like the Danish law that bans interrupting programs for telling about other programs or commercials
15:52<Eddi|zuHause3>so you only have pay-tv?
15:53<@Bjarni>but they are not allowed to interrupt a program
15:53<@Bjarni>they can send commercials between programs
15:53<Eddi|zuHause3>so you then have 30 minutes commercials between movies?
15:53|-|Osai [] has joined #openttd
15:53<@Bjarni>30 minutes???
15:53<@Bjarni>dream on
15:54<@Bjarni>a commercial block is 8 minutes... max
15:54<+glx>then they put program annoucement between commercials :)
15:54<Eddi|zuHause3>every 30 minutes there are around 5 minutes commercials and 3 minutes program announcements here, over a 120 minute movie that is at least 4 commercial blocks
15:54<@Bjarni>in fact there is a limit on how many % of the total broastcast time that's allowed to use for commercials
15:55<Rubidium>DaleStan: are there more 15 bit or 8 bit callbacks?
15:58<mcbane>why rubiduim has no @ hes also dev?
15:58<Rubidium>cause I don't like @s
15:58<Eddi|zuHause3>also, at least once per hour there are overlay-announcements that either tell about The Big Movie today, or tell you to download the title music as ringtone or buy the DVDs or stuff
15:58<Rubidium>and why do I need to have @?
15:59<mcbane>you dont. i wonderd they you dont have it.
15:59<SmatZ>to show you are more important that other users here...
16:00<SmatZ>maybe this is the reason why so many people want @
16:00<SmatZ>and to have control over others...
16:00<SmatZ>well... those are not nice reasons to have @, but many people just want it
16:00<+glx>he can use DorpsGek to control others
16:01<SmatZ>but nobody sees it - but @ sees everyone

16:07<Eddi|zuHause3>anyway, the things i recorded today were: Star Trek VIII (2h), Star Trek (2h), Märchenstunde 4x03 (1h), Simpsons 13x16+18x05 (2*30m), Men in Black II (2h), Criminal Minds 2x01 (1h), Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2h30m) [still running], The Shield 1x06 (1h) [about to start]
16:08<Eddi|zuHause3>that's 12h30m (uncut)

16:22|-|Wezz6400 [] has quit [Quit: Watch out for the bomb!]
16:23<Eddi|zuHause3>while the 1 spot probably does not legally count as commercial break, because it is actually a program announcement with a picture-in-picture commercial
16:24<SmatZ>they know how to force commercials everywhere
16:24<Eddi|zuHause3>the program announcement then looks like "22s until [next show]"
16:25<Eddi|zuHause3>afaik EU regulations say that you cannot have more than 2 commercial breaks per hour
16:26<Eddi|zuHause3>so it's not like in the USA, where you have up to 6 breaks per show...
16:26<Eddi|zuHause3>there you probably get 2 minute sections often...
16:31<ln->Eddi|zuHause3: btw, how often do you see the end credist of an episode or movie in fullscreen, without any textual or spoken spam on top of it?
16:33<+glx>depends on the channel here
16:36<ln->end credits used to be shown spamless on every channel on finland until about the 2000's. nowadays some channels often advertise following programmes during end credits, which is somewhat annoying.
16:36<Rubidium>DaleStan: looks like a much simpler way to handle the 15 vs 8 bit callbacks than your big diff.

16:55<TrueBrain>wow Rubidium, that is a much shorter patch ;)

17:06<ln->was it the netherlands where all digital cable channels are encrypted and can only be received by one brand of operator-approved receivers?
17:06<Eddi|zuHause3>well, they show almost nothing of interes
17:06<Eddi|zuHause3>and if they try to get "youths" to watch their programs, it always fails

In a display of both bitter irony and incompetence, the police did not take or shut-down the Tor server responsible for the traffic they were interested in, which was
17:09<TrueBrain>located in a data center, over 500km away. In the last year, Germany has passed a draconian new anti-security research law and raided seven different data centers to seize Tor servers."

However, requiring that developers make a conscious decision between Get8BitCallback and Get15BitCallback means that new 15-bit callbacks won't get accidentally truncated because someone forgot to add another case to that switch.

22:56<Rubidium>DaleStan: thanks for the answers. However... CSDset 1.5.0 RC1 is "using" variable 41 which is, according to you, not possible/correct.
22:57<DaleStan>Interesting. I'll take a look.
23:01<_minime_>Rubidium: that's not for callback 16
23:02|-|Name101__ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:02<_minime_>it uses var41 for selection of the graphics set to draw
23:02<_minime_>callback 16 is based on var 10
23:03<Rubidium>_minime_: then why is the result different when calling it with and without vehicle information?
23:04<_minime_>that's an interesting question
23:05<_minime_>although - do you in one of the cases call the callback as if it was in purchase window?
23:05<_minime_>because in the purchase window it doesn't handle the callback at all
23:06<_minime_>it only displays a single sprite every time
23:07<_minime_>does the num_vehicles get set to 1, before your allocation? (that's what i kept seeing, but I just thought i never caught it in a breakpoint at the right time)
23:07<Rubidium>hmm, that might be true
23:08<DaleStan>I too, found no uses of var 41 in callback 16. Which is the offending vehicle?
23:08<DaleStan>My understanding is that very few callbacks are called from the purchase window. (23 seems to be the only such vehicle callback.)
23:08<Rubidium>however... that would mean that there need to be two functions to count the vehicles
23:08<Rubidium>DaleStan: looks like I was wrong; it must have been the drawing that was doing it
23:09<Rubidium>however, the purchase window thingy might be the case (though that would be pretty well hidden somewhere in OTTD's code)
