02:17<mikk36|work>Eddi|zuHause2, there
02:19<mikk36|work>hi, Peter1986
02:19<Soup>dumb linux root
02:20<Soup>i just got linux last week
02:20<Soup>hope i can compile openttd
02:25<Peter1986>is anyone here?
02:26<Peter1986>what does it mean 'escessive lameness'?
02:26<Peter1986>i saw it somewhere...
02:28|-|prakti [] has quit [Quit: Quitting .... Hackedi...hackedi...weg.]
02:30<Peter1986>so what does that 'excessive lameness' mean?
02:30|-|Osai [] has quit [Quit: Osai]
02:36|-|Soup [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
02:40<Rubidium>Peter1986: that the person is too lame to get a dictionary to find the meaning of the words "excessive" and "lameness"
02:40<Peter1986>i thought it is some 'phraze' at OTTD...
02:41<Peter1986>like it means when they chat with signs etc.
02:42<Rubidium>oh, it's something some users say? Then it's better to place a sign there and ask what it means! ;)
02:49|-|Farden [] has joined #openttd
02:51<Peter1986>no, i was thinking maybe it has a meaning ingame what us not its regular meaning...
02:52<Peter1986>maybe some OTTD slangs like rotten banana etc. xD
02:52<Rubidium>I've never seen it, but that might be due to the fact that I virtually never play MP.
02:53|-|Unknown_Entity [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

06:34|-|Chris82 [] has joined #openttd
06:34<Chris82>hi guys :)
06:34<Chris82>I can't compile current trunk (clean) with MSVC anymore, it just hangs on determining version number
06:35<blathijs>ey Chris82
06:35<blathijs>Chris82: What version?
06:35<Chris82>I was using r11355 before and now updated to latest trunk (r11485)
06:35<blathijs>11355 worked?
06:36|-|BigBB [] has joined #openttd
06:36<blathijs>Chris82: Could you perhaps try to find the breaking revision (by bisecting, for example?)
06:36<Chris82>I don't know where exactly the problem started, because I haven't done anything with OpenTTD for a while (thus the lack of ChrisIN updates)
06:36<Chris82>yeah I can partially revert using TortoiseSVN
06:36<blathijs>Chris82: Perhaps look through the log to see if anything changed in the svn revision detection
06:36<Chris82>ok I try to find where the problem started

06:42<dihedral>hey Chris82
06:42<dihedral>long time no see (online)
06:44|-|HerzogDeXtE1 [] has joined #openttd
06:45|-||Bastiaan| [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:45<Chris82>hi :) yeah busy with uni stuff
06:45<Chris82>I just wanted to do a ChrisIN sync otherwise I will miss too much stuff and not be able anymore to sync it
06:45<Chris82>I already missed a lot ;)
06:46<Chris82>r11450 works fine, so only 35 builds left to check
06:47<LeviathNL>first check number 16 :)
06:47<dihedral>you mean r16 :-D
06:47<dihedral>that would be funny
06:48<dihedral>retro ottd gaming :-D
06:48<Chris82>blathijs: The git detection from r11470 is causing it
06:49<Chris82>r11469 builds fine, newer builds hang on version detection in MSVC 2005 and 2008
06:51<Chris82>I wonder why no one noticed this yet... do so few people use MSVC ;) or are they just too lazy to look up problems :D
06:51|-|HerzogDeXtEr [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:51<dihedral>i use mac and linux
06:51<dihedral>and no - i dont use xcode for that either
06:54<Rubidium>Chris82: probably something special to your setup
06:55<Chris82>well at least of MSVC 2008 I have a default install
06:55<Chris82>but if you tell me what "git detection" is I can look at the properties
06:56|-||Bastiaan| [] has joined #openttd
06:56|-|Progman [] has joined #openttd
07:01|-|Diabolic-Angel [] has joined #openttd
07:07|-|ThePizzaKing [] has quit [Quit: ThePizzaKing]
07:13|-|Vikthor [~Vikthor@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
07:14<Rubidium>it's detecting whether you have some kind of versioning system (like svn, but then different)
07:15<Rubidium>it's probably hanging in the following line:
07:15<Rubidium>Do While oExec.Status = 0 And Err.Number = 0
07:15<Rubidium>but I've got no MSVC or even Windows to test it
07:16<BigBB>MSVC 2008 works fine for me, it must be a problem in his setup
07:16<Rubidium>and no idea what it does when it does not have git
07:16<Rubidium>hmm... I think I have a reason why it doesn't work
07:16<Rubidium>Chris82: are you maybe NOT using a SVN checkout?
07:18|-|Hendikins|Work-BNE [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
07:21<Chris82>I am using a SVN checkout created with TortoiseSVN
07:21<Chris82>and I have a default install of MSVC 2008 with no environment settings changed
07:21<Chris82>the only thing I changed was that line numbers are being displayed
07:23<Rubidium>in case of TortoiseSVN it should've detected SVN and bailed out
07:24<Rubidium>but, can you confirm it is the line I mentioned?
07:25<Rubidium>(just remove that loop)
07:25<Chris82>let met try
07:27<Chris82>nope still hangs after removing the loop
07:28|-|Hendikins|Work-BNE [] has joined #openttd
07:28<Rubidium>could you add some alerts (or whatever they're called) in strategic places to see where it stops working?
07:29<Chris82>you mean breakpoints?
07:29<Chris82>the problem is that I don't get a build log when it hangs, I only get one when building fails
07:29<Rubidium>don't think those work, but you might try
07:30<Chris82>no you're right they won't help here
07:31|-|oh [] has joined #openttd
07:32|-|LeviathNL [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
07:33|-|Hendikins|Work-BNE changed nick to Hendikins
07:34<BigBB>look if you have an other program as standard program for *.vbs files. This can make trouble with VC and the revision stuff
07:37|-|Brianetta [] has quit [Quit: Tschüß]
07:38<Chris82>Microsoft (R) Windows Based Script Host is the default program and always was
07:39<Chris82>I just tried it on XP to verify it's not Vista, but the same happens there (also default install of MSVC)
07:40|-|oh [] has quit [Quit: oh]
07:41|-|oh [] has joined #openttd
07:41|-|oh changed nick to oh_
07:41|-|exe [] has joined #openttd
07:41<Chris82>where is $(InputDir) for "$(InputDir)/determineversion.vbs" defined?
07:42<Chris82>or does it mean the root of the project?
07:48<Rubidium>Chris82: somewhere deep inside MSVC magic
07:48<Chris82>the tsvn_tmp file when checking for TortoiseSVN is not created
07:49<Chris82>but this line sTortoise = WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\TortoiseSVN\Directory")
07:49<Rubidium>but IIRC it means the location where the solution files are (or something like that)
07:49<Chris82>where it checks for the TortoiseSVN directory references an existing registry key and it has the correct directory in there
07:50<Chris82>so something with TortoiseSVN detection is not working and thus it thinks there is no SVN
07:52<Rubidium>but that doesn't make it 'hang'
07:53<Rubidium>as that is not changed and it did not 'hang' before
07:53<Rubidium>so that is not an issue at the moment
07:53|-|oh_ changed nick to you2willhavetocopyphastediz8
07:54<Chris82>well I will just try reverting the changes part by part and see where it starts hanging
07:54<Rubidium>oh_ really? it's simply y<TAB>
07:54<Rubidium>Chris82: someone changed his name into 'you2willhavetocopyphastediz8'
07:56|-|exe_ [] has joined #openttd

07:56<oh_>Rubidium: lies

07:57<Rubidium>oh_: lieing is illegal in ten of ten countries!
07:58|-|exe [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:58<dihedral>nice one Rubidium
07:58|-|exe_ changed nick to exe
07:58<oh_>Rubidium: question is; how will you prove I lied?
07:58<dihedral>he does not have to
07:59<Rubidium>Africa > 30 countries, the world has < 300 countries, African countries have no laws so everything is legal -> you lied
07:59<dihedral>a statement from a trusted person is worth more on irc than a statement from some 'new guy' :-P
07:59<oh_>we all know reality is a subjective thing, in turn making truth the same

08:01<Wezz6400>all I see is a yellow icon :P
08:01<Chris82>oh_: actually there is only one truth and people misuse this word to explain their actions
08:01<+Rubidium>Wezz6400: use a proper IRC client
08:02<+Rubidium>Chris82: paradox
08:02<Wezz6400>Rubidium I do actually
08:02<oh_>dealing in absolutes is bad
08:02<Wezz6400>I just can't be bothered to change the icons back
08:02|-|LeviathNL [] has joined #openttd
08:02<+Rubidium>Wezz6400: can I keep it running and connect to it via ssh?
08:02<oh_>I get some silhouette with a blue background :I
08:03<Wezz6400>that I have my bouncer for :P
08:03<+Rubidium>then it's not a proper IRC client ;)
08:03<+Rubidium>bouncers are pretty useless
08:03<+Rubidium>usually at least
08:03<Wezz6400>well I'm running it on my router box at home
08:03<Chris82>Well what I wanted to say was there is nothing like true or wrong, there is only right or false and that is truly subjective (no need to understand what I just said lol)
08:04<+Rubidium>as when people are not connected to the bouncer and you highlight them once and start talking, the other person has no idea what I said after the first highlighted sentence.
08:04<Wezz6400>I find it more convenient to keep online whenever I reboot my pc
08:04<+Rubidium>and there is no automatic way to tell me that it wasn't received
08:04<+Rubidium>Wezz6400: for that you don't need a bouncer
08:04<oh_>if (statement == right) { kthx; } ?
08:05<Wezz6400>Rubidium I know, irrsi on it will do the same thing, however I don't like irssi
08:05<+Rubidium>why not?
08:05<+Rubidium>take bitchy ;)
08:05<+Rubidium>or... even better, write your own
08:05<Wezz6400>I find the controls and interface a bit too basic
08:06|-|exe [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:07<Wezz6400>I mean sure it's a nice programme and all, however I just prefer using something with a graphical interface such as xchat
08:07<dihedral>you just like using your mouse
08:09<+Rubidium>ofcourse Wezz6400 also doesn't use those'archic' controls in Windows to swap applications, he better uses the graphical interface for that
08:09<+Rubidium>I bet he even uses the on-screen keyboard as that is so much nicer than a dull keyboard ;)
08:09<Wezz6400>yeah yeah yeah
08:10<dihedral>Rubidium: with a touch screen :-D
08:10<Wezz6400>I like using the commmand line, however for a client machine which my home pc is I just prefer a graphical interface instead of a command line interface, I find it looks a bit better and is a bit easier to use; nothing wrong with irssi it's just my personal preference
08:11<hylje>irssi ftw!
08:11<dihedral>if it's linux press print screen (and hold) and type s u b :-D
08:11<dihedral>and dont trust me on that one
08:11[~]dihedral is at least kind enough to mention it
08:12<Wezz6400>I never trust anything giving me some key combination over the internet
08:12<Wezz6400>Partly because I like to abuse other people's trust like that too :+
08:12<dihedral>ok - echo "foo" /dev/kmem :-D
08:13<dihedral>echo "foo" > /dev/kmem
08:13<Wezz6400>kmem wouldn't have to do with the kernel or something now would it ;)

09:58<frosch123>The files are in /trunk/bin/data.
09:58<+Rubidium>Jeffroiscool: how did you 'install' it?
09:59<Jeffroiscool>I did a checkout
09:59<Jeffroiscool>then made a data folder in the reale
09:59<Jeffroiscool>then put in the required files
09:59<Jeffroiscool>also ./configure and make
09:59<+Rubidium>Jeffroiscool: if you had placed them in bin/data and had run bin/openttd you would've had no problem.
10:00<Jeffroiscool>illl copy data from bin
10:00<Jeffroiscool>I want to run it as a server
10:00<Jeffroiscool>is that possible?
10:00<+Rubidium>objs/* is not meant to be used as place from where you start the binary.
10:00<+Rubidium>yes that is possible
10:00<Jeffroiscool>I copied the /objs
10:01<Jeffroiscool>its in bin
10:01<dihedral>you copied /objs ?
10:01<Jeffroiscool>yeah i did
10:01<Jeffroiscool>because it said it was there
10:01<+Rubidium>what said that?
10:01<Jeffroiscool>One of the programs
10:01<Jeffroiscool>forgot which one
10:02<Jeffroiscool>X connection to localhost:12.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
10:02<Jeffroiscool>Is there a server command line?
10:02<+Rubidium>Jeffroiscool: what have you tried yourself to answer that question?
10:03<Jeffroiscool>What question
10:03<Jeffroiscool>so many questions here now :P
10:03<dihedral>any of them
10:03<+Rubidium>i.e. have you tried '--help'?
10:03<dihedral>i feel like i could predict that answer
10:03<+Rubidium>something that any unix binary should support
10:04<Jeffroiscool>I'll try
10:04<Jeffroiscool>Ah i see
10:04<Jeffroiscool>whats the standard port?

10:06<dihedral>i can answer all questions with that link
10:06<Jeffroiscool>at least not on the main page
10:06<dihedral>there is 1. a search 2. a manual
10:06<dihedral>do some homework

10:08<Jeffroiscool>sorry wheres the cfg xD
10:08<Gonozal_VIII>game dir^^
10:08<Jeffroiscool>I dont see it
10:08<Jeffroiscool>I just see the openttd binari
10:09<Jeffroiscool>Yeah just found it dihedral
10:09<Jeffroiscool>I need to run it once to get it right?
10:09<dihedral>you tried before asking? :-P
10:10<+Rubidium>Jeffroiscool: no, you don't need to run it to get the cfg
10:10<Jeffroiscool>I'm doing this with putty :P
10:10<dihedral>ls ~/.openttd
10:10<Jeffroiscool>only save and scenario
10:10<+Rubidium>touch ~/.openttd/openttd.cfg works too
10:10<dihedral>then check the bin dir
10:10<Jeffroiscool>only the bin and dir is there
10:11<Jeffroiscool>cannot touch `/home/jeffro/openttd/openttd.cfg': Toegang geweigerd
10:11<Jeffroiscool>the config is not there
10:12<dihedral>and what do you do if you dont have permission?
10:12<Jeffroiscool>I havre
10:12<Gonozal_VIII>did you compile the game?^^
10:12<Jeffroiscool>se i have the config now
10:12<Jeffroiscool>As I said
10:12<dihedral>and i see no . infront of openttd

10:16<Jeffroiscool>I use svn

10:17<Jeffroiscool>Do they need the svn too?

10:17<Jeffroiscool>I had a server before
10:18<Jeffroiscool>I had 0.5.2

10:18<dihedral>have you tried funning ./configure --help

10:19<Gonozal_VIII>... same game version
10:20<Jeffroiscool>I just want to know what the others need now
10:20<dihedral>and you will feel very lonely if you have the latest revision and ./configure --recision=0.5.3

10:50<@Belugas>Jeffroiscool, the idea of pointing you the wiki is to make it so you'll be able to find all the stuff that you need. Some of us are actually working real jobs. And may not be able to answer you. So, if you know where to look for answers, you will KNOW, ASSIMILATE the knowledge faster then just applying the response from somebody else
10:51<Jeffroiscool>Yes I understand
10:51<@Belugas>like... give a fish to someone, he'll eat for a day. Show him fishing, he'll eat for the rest of his life :)
10:51<Jeffroiscool>But not everything is founded easy on the wiki
10:51<Rotonen>and most likely people will still just paste your questions relevant terms into the wiki search anyway
10:51<Jeffroiscool>The wiki is now much more pointed to players
10:51<Jeffroiscool>And not to server hosters
10:52<Jeffroiscool>So you will have to search with more trouble.

10:52<Jeffroiscool>and I know i just made 2/3 typos xD

15:33<@Belugas>wold be good a brand new game style based on a brand new gui
15:33<KaareMai>Would be a nice starting point to grasp all the basics of such an implementation

15:35<KaareMai>hylje, sounds interesting :)
15:35<UnderBuilder>or why not create a series of free simulation games like sim*, theme* or tycoon* ones
15:35<KaareMai>I've figured out 80% of the graphic file format, then theres the sound. But it all uses the same structure in the files so shouldn't be that hard.
15:35<hylje>KaareMai: how experienced are you in programming?
15:37<KaareMai>Well, i make software for micro controllers at work, some VB6 (lol), C(++) and some C# apps, but thats a far cry from understanding how to create a game :)
15:37<KaareMai>but my primary software knowledge is assembly for very tiny microcontrollers
15:39<hylje>sounds pretty good for a base
15:39|-|lugo [] has joined #openttd
15:40<UnderBuilder>who agrees me that there would be a serie of simulation games, like Maxis did with sim, bullfrog with theme and microprose with tycoon?
15:40<KaareMai>Yeah, well the problem for me is not so much to understand C programming, but more the larger concepts of creating such a game as openttd. Where to begin? How to manage pathfinding and all that stuff
15:40<hylje>UnderBuilder: small indie (open source) gaems?
15:41<hylje>KaareMai: either start poking around about openttd and other projects
15:41<hylje>KaareMai: or roll your own, i still recommend python with pygame
15:41<UnderBuilder>for example... openttd + opencity should start the series
15:43<UnderBuilder>why not a more creative name like... * master (transport master, city master, park master, etc.)
15:43<hylje>one should get onto the series first
15:43<hylje>e.g. fork ottd and start hacking it
15:43<UnderBuilder>you can choose the name of the series
15:44<@Belugas>there are already a few games about transport been built, or started to be built. why start another one?
15:46<UnderBuilder>better explained with an example, one step to introduce this is creating a GUI library for it
15:47<+glx>UnderBuilder: it's already a pain to modify a window in ottd, and you want to use this in other games?

16:42<dihedral>well - i cannot 'boot' from it either way

16:43<dihedral>there is no bios
16:43<dihedral>there is open firmware :-D
16:44<@Bjarni>it might not even be a bios/firmware issue
16:44<dihedral>i dont think it is
16:44<@Bjarni>I can boot from one USB disk, but not another one even if I install the very same system on both
16:44<Gonozal_VIII>but my old system didn't support usb boot
16:45<@Bjarni>this is due to how the IDE<->USB bridge is made
16:45[~]dihedral restarts his powerbook
16:45<@Bjarni>funny enough it's the cheap one that's bootable
16:45<KaareMai>Is it a known bug that trains sometimes doesnt follow the signal rules of presignals when arraving at a station that they don't have in their orders list?
16:45<dihedral>use 2 way signals
16:46<Gonozal_VIII>i don't know how that mac stuff works but can't you start the installation while running another os?
16:47<KaareMai>Well i mean if you build a two-track terminus and place two way pre-signal at the entrance and one incomming presignal at the arrival track, and one normal for the exit track, then sometimes the train doesnt stop at the first presignal even if its read, instead it drives in and blocks the exit for the other train
16:47<KaareMai>this happens if it arrives at a station when its lost for example
16:47<KaareMai>then it doesnt follow "the rules"
16:47<Gonozal_VIII>they are not supposed to pass red signals ever...
16:47<KaareMai>but they do
16:47<dihedral>KaareMai: screenshot :-)
16:48<dihedral>Bjarni: no luck
16:48<Gonozal_VIII>maybe the signal was green for a split second and you didn't notice?
16:48<dihedral>'Mac OS X cannot start up from this valume'
16:49<KaareMai>0.5.x nightlies spanning over several different nightlies, no grf, no patches
16:49<@Bjarni>dihedral: then the hardware isn't bootable
16:49<KaareMai>but Gonozal_VIII, how can it turn green if both platforms are occupied
16:50<@Bjarni>depending on the computer itself USB might not be bootable at all. For some reason Apple added USB booting really late
16:50<KaareMai>if both platforms are occupied, it will ignore the pre-signal and drive in and block the train
16:50<KaareMai>when i make the train leave and another arrives that is supposed to arrive, then it follows the rules
16:50<Gonozal_VIII>don't know how exactly your layout is... but if it is as you described it shouldn't happen
16:50<@Bjarni>firewire booting works on all macs with firewire though
16:50<dihedral>it's a 12" G4
16:50<KaareMai>its just a standard two terminal terminus

16:51<@Bjarni>my powerbook is 11 years old
16:51<KaareMai>It works perfectly
16:52<@Bjarni>that one can't boot from USB either :P
16:52<KaareMai>but sometimes it doesnt. It seems that the problem happens if the train is lost or arrives at a station that it doesnt have in its order list
16:52<dihedral>KaareMai: i see no trains
16:52<KaareMai>No its just from the wiki page :)
16:52<dihedral>well wonderful
16:52<Gonozal_VIII>you don't have an exit signal where the normal should be, do you?
16:53<dihedral>just give us a screenshot from something else will help us know whats going on in your game!!
16:53<KaareMai>They are completely identical to the one on the screenshot
16:53<KaareMai>okay lol
16:53<@Bjarni> <KaareMai> They are completely identical to the one on the screenshot <-- not 100% because then it would work

16:54<dihedral>KaareMai: it's not
16:54<SmatZ>KaareMai: are both platforms full?
16:54<dihedral>apparently they are
16:54<Gonozal_VIII>that's a standard station... lots of people use that... there is no bug in that by itself

16:54<@Bjarni> <KaareMai> bjarni, thats like saying theres no bugs in openttd :P <-- no. Even if there are bugs it should behave the very same way with the very same layout even if it's buggy
16:55<KaareMai>but when a train that is lost arrives then sometimes it drives further in even though the light is red
16:55<KaareMai>it happens very rarely

16:56<SmatZ>but if they are...
16:56<dihedral>he probably has combo at station and exit on track out and pre on track in
16:57<Eddi|zuHause2>if a train is lost, it is a bug in your layout...

17:00<@Bjarni>you drive on the left side o_O
17:00<Gonozal_VIII>a bit hidden.. but looks like a normal signal
17:00<Gonozal_VIII>so signals should be fine

17:01<KaareMai>thats how i started and now its just a habit
17:01<Eddi|zuHause2>err... in our area that is called more something like "holy swede" :p
17:01<KaareMai>i cant capture the bug right now as it happens very rarely, it may take hours before i see it again
17:01<dihedral>[23:00] <Bjarni> fucking Swede <--- LOL
17:01<Gonozal_VIII>but you should have made a screenshot of the actual bug, not a standard situation...
17:01<@Bjarni>I don't have a habit when it comes to driving side... I switch depending on the game
17:02<Gonozal_VIII>i prefer right
17:02<KaareMai>I will Gonozal_VIII as soon as i see it again :)
17:02<@Bjarni>well I use right side driving if it really doesn't matter but I sometimes do some track optimisation based on driving side
17:02<KaareMai>And about the lost trains: It keeps saying that when i let trains drive over very large networks and long distances
17:02<dihedral>Bjarni: i switch driving sides depending on the country i am in
17:02<KaareMai>however they always find their way anyway
17:02<@Bjarni>I picked left side when testing the Japanese GRF set to make it more "real"
17:02<Eddi|zuHause2>worse than that he is driving on wrong side, is, that his signals are on the wrong side for driving on the wrong side, and two wrongs do not automatically make a right
17:03<Eddi|zuHause2>in any case, signals should be on the outside

17:04<ben_goodger>good evening, humanoids
17:04<@Bjarni>"I drive in the left track". "ok, then we will give you left side driving engines so the driver can see the signals"
17:04<dihedral>KaareMai: hint: save games every month, and capture the event :-)
17:04<dihedral>and specify a date with the save
17:04<@Bjarni>and then you are screwed with your signal placements :P
17:04<Gonozal_VIII>doesn't the driver sit in the middle?
17:04<KaareMai>Well, it's a game running on my server, and the players get pretty annoyed of the long saving times
17:05<KaareMai>each autosave is 4MB
17:05<dihedral>Gonozal_VIII: perhaps that depends on the loc and the driver
17:05<fjb>I saw lost trains and trains which don't have a route at all (escaped from a depot) waiting in front of a red platform entry signal while the platform next to that one was free. There defenitly is a bug somewhere.
17:05<dihedral>but i beleive the driver sits either at the front or rear :-D
17:05<KaareMai>the mouse lags like hell just by moving it over the openttd window
17:05<@Bjarni>Gonozal_VIII: not on steam locomotives. The fireman shovel coal in the middle
17:05<KaareMai>exactly fjb
17:05<KaareMai>i've seen that too
17:05<ben_goodger>this is not a good time to ask about routefinding algorithms?
17:05<@Bjarni>the driver is placed to the far left/right to be able to see around the boiler
17:05<KaareMai>its like they stop following signal rules if the arrive at a station that is not in their orders
17:05<Eddi|zuHause2>fjb: that is no bug, a train without route can take a random (as in undefined) track
17:06<Eddi|zuHause2>it may or may not take the red light
17:06<Eddi|zuHause2>in any way, a lost train is a user bug
17:06<KaareMai>but if it has two possible lines in front of it, the one is red the other is green ,then it should take the green one?
17:07<fjb>When it happens, it usually happens at the same stations. Best way to find it will be to start some trains without orders.
17:07<KaareMai>sounds logical to me :)
17:07<Eddi|zuHause2>you cannot guess what you want it to do
17:07<Eddi|zuHause2>(from pathfinder view, it does not know wether the next signal is green or not)
17:08<Eddi|zuHause2>the pathfinder also does not know which exit signals are an option
17:08<Gonozal_VIII>you cannot calculate penalties without knowing the way :-)
17:08<Eddi|zuHause2>it only locally checks wether the current tile is a signal, and then sets a penalty for this branch
17:09<Eddi|zuHause2>it does that for every current end point
17:09<Eddi|zuHause2>and for the end point with the lowest current penalty, it checks the next tile
17:09<KaareMai>That sounds like an explanation to my problem
17:09<dihedral>Eddi|zuHause2: i thought yapf looked 10 signals ahead
17:10<Eddi|zuHause2>dihedral: yes, but only if it actually encounters 10 signals
17:10|-|elmex [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:10<Eddi|zuHause2>if the pathfinder runs into a dead end, it assigns infinite penalty for that route
17:10<Eddi|zuHause2>if no route exists, all routes are dead ends
17:10<Eddi|zuHause2>so all routes have infinite penalty
17:10<Eddi|zuHause2>so it can choose a random one
17:11<@Bjarni>Gonozal_VIII: <-- this is the view of the driver if he is located in the left side. As you can see it wouldn't make much sense to be in the middle ;)
17:11<Eddi|zuHause2>the only alternative to that is to not let the train go anywhere at all
17:11<dihedral>Eddi|zuHause2: nice - thanks for that :-)
17:12<dihedral>good to know

17:14<Eddi|zuHause2>dihedral: the pathfinder (in the current design) cannot handle turning around in dead ends, because it would need to know the train length to check wether a switch after turning could actually be taken

The lorry only hit one of them
17:44<Eddi|zuHause2>you can go on straight, insisting on your right of way, causing an accident
17:45<Eddi|zuHause2>or you can break the rule of staying on the road, go on the pavewalk, and avoid an accident
17:45<@Bjarni>people generally pick the latter often without checking if it's free or not
17:45<@Bjarni>because then they will not get physically hurt themselves
17:45<Gonozal_VIII>people cause less damage to the car than other cars :-)
17:46<Eddi|zuHause2>if you choose the first way, you get a partial responsibility for the accident
17:47<Eddi|zuHause2>if you choose the second way, you may still get fined for going on the pavewalk
17:47<Eddi|zuHause2>and you get in real trouble if you actually hit a passant
17:47<Gonozal_VIII>that's stupid... good that i don't have to drive much

17:54<@Bjarni>ohh... just remembered a nice story. There was a freeway in England where a car had stopped in the hard shoulder and the police noticed because it was right in front of one of their cameras. They went "oh it's a breakdown and he stopped right next to a phone" but then it turned out that nobody called from the phone so they were a bit pussled. There was no driver either but there was a guy lying on the passenger seat so they decide t
17:54<@Bjarni>o call the phone to ask if everything is all right. Everything became really clear when he went for the phone because there was a woman under him :D

21:46<+glx>edit it and delete the text
21:47<fjb>Only the lower sign gets selected, not the upper.
21:51<Gonozal_VIII>you'll have to delete both and replace the lower with a new one then
21:52<fjb>I don't want to replace the lower, because I didn't make it.
21:55<fjb>Strange, I have some planes circling above an almost empty airport (0.5.3).
21:56<Gonozal_VIII>crashed plane in the way?
21:56<Gonozal_VIII>or zeppelin :-)
21:56<fjb>No, no, other airplanes are landing and starting there.
21:57<+glx>if a plane miss is turn to land, it returns in the loop
21:58<fjb>Both runways are free.
21:59<Gonozal_VIII>orders ok?
21:59<fjb>Yes, checked it
22:00<Gonozal_VIII>skip them and see if it happens again
22:00<fjb>Maybe that is the best idea.
22:01<Gonozal_VIII>broken down planes are very slow, they often circle for long times because faster planes overtake them
22:01<fjb>Problem is they have an engine malfunction and are really slow in 0.5.3 :-(
22:02<fjb>No faster planes were overtaking. That is the strange thing.
22:02<fjb>Both runways were free most of the time.
22:02<Gonozal_VIII>btw "fahre nach" for planes is stupid
22:03<+glx>hmm I can see a concorde in landing phase
22:03<fjb>That would be correct for airships only. :-)
22:04<+glx>oups it's already landed
22:04<Gonozal_VIII>the concorde is on the ground
22:04<fjb>Yes, but the other runway was still free. And the planes were circling there for over a year. The concorde was not always there. :-)
22:04<fjb>Oh, indded, is on the ground.
22:04<Gonozal_VIII>could be a bug but not one that i've heard from
22:05<fjb>I have never seen that before.
22:06<fjb>I will see if they are landing at the other airport.
22:06<fjb>Maybe it happend because I "stole" the other players goods. :-)
22:08<Gonozal_VIII>wait a minute... the plane 62 doesn't have that airport in its orders
22:08<fjb>I have a better connection to his factory. He transports grain and animals to the factory and I'm taking the products, carry them to the aitrport and fly them to the other side of the world. :-)
22:09<Gonozal_VIII>that shouldn't have anything to do with circling planes
22:09<Gonozal_VIII>are there service at orders in 0.5.3?
22:10<fjb>Oh, thank you, that must have happened when I did an upgrade to the airport. I havebt seen that. thank you.
22:10<Gonozal_VIII>ah that other airport is not an airport at all
22:11<Gonozal_VIII>shouldn't that be invalid order?

22:19<fjb>Yes, and it's getting better. Many new grfs are in the work.
22:19<Gonozal_VIII>some work fine together but others don't... had to test a lot
22:19<fjb>I'm not that happy about bridges and road combinations yet.
22:19<Gonozal_VIII>i've found a good one :-)
22:20<fjb>Which one?
22:20<Gonozal_VIII>newbridgesW.grf with param 2
22:21<Gonozal_VIII>and the european roadset
22:21<fjb>What is param 2 doing?
22:21<Gonozal_VIII>sets the bridges to fit euroroads
22:21<fjb>I don't like the europead road set that much. And the UK roadset complains about TTRS, even when the roads of TTRS are disabled.
22:22<Gonozal_VIII>yes, ttrs param 3 set to 0 for road disabling...
22:22<fjb>The admin of the server I'm playing on didn't enable better loadeing. .-(
22:23<fjb>Disabling the TTRS roads is mentioned in the UK road set readme, but that conbination still doesn't work.
22:23<Gonozal_VIII>didnt try uk road set, i like the european
22:24<Gonozal_VIII>that's the grflist
22:25<Gonozal_VIII>serbian railset is great for ecs
22:26<fjb>The european road set looks a bit boring.
22:27<fjb>I didn't try the serbian railset yet.
22:27<fjb>What is srvtt?
22:27<Gonozal_VIII>serbian trams
22:28<fjb>Ah, ok. I prefer the dutch trams because they are articulated. Looks cute.
22:29<Gonozal_VIII>yes but they replace too many of the lv4 trucks
22:29<fjb>New terrain? What does it do? Replace the fields?
22:30<Gonozal_VIII>the grass... looks more grassy and without a grid
22:31<fjb>I have patches the dutch tram set. Now it works proper with LV4. The serbian trams can have another problem with LV4. LV4 raises the base costs. Maybe the running costs of the trams are much too high then.
22:31<fjb>How do you cound tiles without the grid?
22:32<Gonozal_VIII>i don't have to count tiles, the game does that :-)
22:33<fjb>I'm hitting the plane limit of this server soon. :-(
22:33<Gonozal_VIII>i play nightlies, when you drag some tool there it counts the length
22:35<Gonozal_VIII>tram costs could be higher then intended, i don't know but they fit to the other vehicles and money is not an issue anyways
22:35<fjb>Oh, I never noticed that...
22:36<fjb>I could never make any profid with trams in combination with LV4. The running costs are raised 8 times by LV4.
22:37<Gonozal_VIII>hmmm how much running cost does your most expensive tram have?
22:38<Gonozal_VIII>4300 euro per year is the rotram which can hold 202 passengers... that's ok
22:39<fjb>It should be 1/8 of that. You can never make any profit on the short distances that trams are going that way.
22:39<fjb>Compare it to the running costs of the busses.
22:39<Gonozal_VIII>i don't use them as stand alone transport, they only transfer to airports or docks
22:40<Gonozal_VIII>and train stations of course..
22:41<Gonozal_VIII>the dolphin intercity bus has 120 passengers and 3100 euro per year
22:41<fjb>I also do. But why should I use them, when busses with equal size are making profit.
22:41<Gonozal_VIII>and my trams always make profit :-)
22:41<fjb>Hm, than it is almost equal.
22:41<Gonozal_VIII>it's so easy to make profit...
22:42<fjb>Then the tramset is "optimized" for LV4 and has no problems. :-)
22:42<fjb>Yes, the bigger problem is to spend the money.
22:43<Gonozal_VIII>just to get rid of the money you could always blow up some water....
22:43<fjb>The problem with ECs is to connect the imoportant things before they are closing down. :-)
22:43<fjb>Blowing up water? Never tryed it. Maybe I could get some fish that way.
22:44<Gonozal_VIII>costs a lot and doesn't change anything because it floods
22:44<fjb>I never understand why people prefer to play on a flat world. Where is the fun then? Isn't it getting boring that easy?
22:45<fjb>Doesn't di anything and is fun. :-)
22:46<Gonozal_VIII>i play on difficulty hard (custom because i set competitors to 0)
22:46<Gonozal_VIII>and since ecs mostly small maps like 256^2
22:47<Gonozal_VIII>coop with a friend most of the time
22:48<fjb>And I always allow trains to change direction in stations. It is stupid when they are not allowed to do it. Doesn't make the game more difficult, is just stupid. I never heard that a train drove to the other side of a country because it couldn't change it's direction in any station.
22:48<fjb>256² is too small for realistic trains. :-)
22:49<Gonozal_VIII>no i don't like that changing direciton in stations...
22:49<Gonozal_VIII>and... enable building very long trains: off
22:49<fjb>I'm trying to get e friend into it. He really likes the game, but doen't like to play with me. He usually wins every game, but i'm better at this game. So he doen't want to play with me.
22:50<fjb>Why do you only build short trains?
22:50<Gonozal_VIII>it's a bit harder then
22:51<Gonozal_VIII>i also set the weight multiplier at least to 5
22:51<fjb>But looks a bit ridicules when a havy fright engine only has 5 wagons.
22:51<Gonozal_VIII>9 wagons :-)
22:52<fjb>Most engines still lough about that weight. :-)
22:52<Gonozal_VIII>could try a higher setting now with the narrow gauge set... when i tested them they were very good at climbing hills
22:53<fjb>And what is the disabvantage of allowing trainsd to turn in stations? That only leads to building a turn around the station or after the station.
22:54<Gonozal_VIII>they never have to do that in my networks
22:54<fjb>Real freight engines easily pull 80 or more wagons.
22:54<Gonozal_VIII>only roro stations
22:54<Gonozal_VIII>i don't see such big trains around here
22:55<fjb>The satnadard roro design that gets proposed looks always the same and doesn't look any realistic. It always looks like standard TTD design. :-)
22:56<Gonozal_VIII> <-- that's one of my standard designs
22:56<fjb>You only see that trains on the main lines. And they usually go by night.
22:57|-|BigBB_ [] has joined #openttd
22:57<Gonozal_VIII>but not that big usually... that size is only vor huge ammounts of freight
22:57<fjb>I have seen that before. Takes much room. but ooks like a toy design, not like a real station. :-)
22:58<fjb>You see trains that long on the main lines in germany, north to south, east to west.
22:58<Gonozal_VIII>i'm here at a small sideline in austria, our trains have 3-4 cars...
22:59<fjb>One of that trais derailed last year in Hannover. Not much happened, they only nedded some ours to put it back onto the rails.

23:00<fjb>You could look at the airial pictures of big stations on google maps. That is real fun. :-)

23:12<fjb>He has many trains at that station. They are waiting for the freight and then want to go to the depot when leaving. There they lock. And it needs months for them to unlock. At least it unlocks. But in the meantime I'm getting all the freight. :-)
23:13<Gonozal_VIII>that's indeed stupid of him
23:14<Gonozal_VIII>and the trains shouldn't service after loading....
23:14<fjb>But he build a large pyramid in the see with his HQ on the top before leaving. very cool. :-)
23:14<Gonozal_VIII>hehe i did that too
23:14<Gonozal_VIII>or in the water on water level surrounded by canal tiles
23:14<fjb>he put a sign on it with his name. I put a sign over it. :-)
23:15<Gonozal_VIII>but i wouldn't do that on multiplayer...
23:15<fjb>That last idea is indeed cool. But the pyramid is not cool.
23:16<fjb>In multiplayer it is there to show the other players that he is the king. But he isn't. :-)
23:16<fjb>I'm better and I started later. :-)

23:18<Gonozal_VIII>i like roro stations better than your design, especially with the long lines without signals in front of it... i think a single roro platform would be able to have the same throughput
23:18<fjb>I'm the only one using road vehicles. The other are making the station aerea big.
23:19<Gonozal_VIII>i try to use every kind of transportation in my games
23:19<Gonozal_VIII>ships can make a good profit btw
23:20<fjb>Infact the long lines are train lenght and not nedded. I usually don't build them but I wanted to be on the safe side because the better loading is not enabled in that game.
23:20<fjb>I like ships, but there is no water near my airport. Else I had used ships.
23:21<fjb>I stole him the passengers from his heli station using busses. :-)
23:21|-|nairan [] has joined #openttd
23:21<Gonozal_VIII>aaaand you do realise that the depots have a combo inside which renders the entry signals in front of your station useless
23:21<fjb>It's more fun to be better with seamingly less capable vehicles. :-)
23:22<fjb>Yes, I'm aware of that. It still works. The new pathfinder is not that stupid. You often can get away without signal blocks.
23:23<Gonozal_VIII>it is a signal block.. but it has three exits, if both platforms are full, the next train will enter the depot and the entry signal doesn't do anything
23:24<fjb>I'm still experimenting with this design. I sometimes build the depots outside the station.
23:25<fjb>The train is waiting in front of the presignal and not going into the depot. There is a plain signal in the depot, not a block end signal.
23:25<Gonozal_VIII>it should be a combo
23:26<fjb>My planes don't keep up with the goods from the factory. :-(
23:26<Gonozal_VIII>if it's not, then it is a entry
23:26<Gonozal_VIII>but not plain
23:26<fjb>Don't know for sure what it is, but it is no exit signal.
23:26<Gonozal_VIII>it keeps the trains inside when exits are blocked
23:26<fjb>Then it is an entry signal.
23:26<Gonozal_VIII>seems to be... i thought it was a combo
23:28<Gonozal_VIII>but combo or entry doesn't matter for the way i use it
23:29<fjb>How do you build you station design in the mountains?
23:29<Gonozal_VIII>lots smaller^^
23:30<Gonozal_VIII>there are only one or two platforms needed for most industries
23:30<fjb>The depot needs stimm some room.
23:30<Gonozal_VIII>that design is for games without ecs where a single factory can produce tens of thousands of goods
23:31<fjb>Oh, this factore is making more than 1200 boxes...
23:32<fjb>Most are mine. :-)
23:32<Gonozal_VIII>i'm talking mor like 40k crates :-)
23:32<fjb>No wonder my planes are not able to keep up.
23:33<fjb>I'm usually plaing with ECS. I'm not used to that numbers.
23:34<Gonozal_VIII>ecs hasn't been around for long, i played many years with standard industries
23:35<fjb>I know TTD since abou 2 months ago.
23:36<fjb>The planes in 0.5.3 are sloooooooooow....
23:37<Gonozal_VIII>vehicle speeds are not the same for different vehicle types there...
23:37<Gonozal_VIII>was the same in ttd
23:38<Gonozal_VIII>a train could overtake a plane :-)
23:38<Gonozal_VIII>and yes... depot has entry, not combo
23:39<fjb>But the planes are really sloooooooow...
23:39<Gonozal_VIII>why don't you just play nightly or 0.6.0 beta?
23:39<fjb>He has 4 passengers at his heli station, I'm having 608 at the bus stop next to it. :-)
23:40<Gonozal_VIII>do you have a statue in that town?
23:40<fjb>Because this is a public server. I'm playing nightly builds when i'm playing alone or with friends.
23:40<Gonozal_VIII>increases rating by 10%
23:40<fjb>Yes, but it was that way even before I build the statue.
23:41<Gonozal_VIII>there are also public nightly and 0.6 servers
23:41<fjb>I have more busses than he helicopters. :-)
23:42<fjb>This is dehidrals server. Just wanted to try it.
23:42<Gonozal_VIII>ah i see
23:42<Gonozal_VIII>helis are nice for tourists :-)
23:42<fjb>Yes, or for getting fish. :-)
23:43<Gonozal_VIII>i sometimes connect some towns where i transport passengers by train, mail with trucks and tourists take the helis
23:43<fjb>But the ultimate fishing tool is the Skylift.
23:44<fjb>Not a bad choice. Tourists are paying good.
23:44<fjb>I usually build a heli port next to my HQ. For the important guests... :-)
23:45<Gonozal_VIII>most of the time i don't build the hq at all
23:48<fjb>I'm usually building it late in the game, in one of the cities where I started. It is just kind of a connection to that cities, home of my company. Once I put my first locomotion in front of the HQ. Lokked nice.
23:49<Gonozal_VIII>you put your first engine on an abandoned track in front of your hq?
23:49<Gonozal_VIII>sounds like a nice idea :-)
23:49<fjb>Yes. :-)
23:51<fjb>The HQ was on a hill above the city. The first line ran nort far behind the HQ. The engine was in a depot, don't remember why I hadn't sold it. Mybe I had forgotten about it. I build a line to the front of the HQ, moved the engine there and removed the line.
23:52<Gonozal_VIII>cool :-)
23:52<Gonozal_VIII>i don't have forgotten engines because i use autoreplace...
23:53<fjb>Once I put my first "Rheingold" express train at an unsused track next to a station for display and fun of the tourists after it was too old to use it.
23:53<fjb>When it just stays in the depot without ever leaving it the engine doesn't get replaced.
23:54<Gonozal_VIII>yes but i don't put engines into the depot and leave them there
23:54<Gonozal_VIII>i either assign them to another line or sell them

23:57<fjb>And later in the game I was glad to still have this cute old engine.
23:57<fjb>Oh, I should go to bed. :-)
23:58<Gonozal_VIII>i don't have to go to uni until 16:30 today :-)
23:59<nairan>gonozal: it wasi torist center =P
23:59<nairan>but shouldnt it tourist center?
