00:23<Argon_Sloth>Is there a way to increase the size of the UI buttons at higher resolutions?

04:32<Eddi|zuHause2>there should be a way to transfer money from one company to another
04:32<Eddi|zuHause2>to turn that into a console command should not be very hard
04:33<Gekz_>a penalty for breaking the rules -_-
04:33<Eddi|zuHause2>to let that money disappear somewhere is a completely different issue
04:33<Gekz_>not really
04:34<Eddi|zuHause2>yes, because that will need clientside modification
04:35<Gekz_>how so
04:35<Gekz_>isn't the amount of money you have stored on the server?
04:35<Eddi|zuHause2>each and every amount of whatsoever small significance is stored on the server and every client
04:36<Gekz_>so doesnt that mean anything with a number requires server and client modification?
04:36<Eddi|zuHause2>everything must be calculated on each client (quasi-)simultaneously
04:37<Eddi|zuHause2>the server sends out a command, and every client executes it
04:38<Maedhros>if you take money from a company on a server but don't tell the client about it, you'll end up with a desync if the client thinks the player has the money to build something but the server doesn't
04:38<Eddi|zuHause2>the command to transfer money is already implemented on client side, so you only have to add a server side method to send it
04:38<Eddi|zuHause2>the command to let money disappear is not implemented anywhere
04:38<Eddi|zuHause2>so if you send such a command to a client, it does not know what to do with it
04:39<Rubidium>it might even kick all clients due to an invalid command
04:40<Eddi|zuHause2>e.g. you could take the money from the offending company, and distribute it to the other companies (by whatever method you consider "fair", it just have to add up to the same amount of money)
04:41<Eddi|zuHause2>... and i should be working...

04:44<Rubidium>if you have 'space' for an extra company you can just start a new one send money there and remove it
04:44<Rubidium>it still requires some server changing

06:09<Svish>can somone explain to me why non-stop ordered trains stop? they dont pick anything up, but they slow down and stop before they start again. which is kind of annoying...
06:09<Svish>real-world trains dont do that, do they?
06:11<Maedhros>yes, well, there are many things ttd trains do that real world trains don't :p
06:11<Maedhros>but anyway, have you got TTDPatch-compatible non-stop handling enabled in the patches menu?

07:24<Maedhros>Svish: it was just a thought - i don't know why your trains are stopping, since they shouldn't be. do you have a screenshot of the orderlist, and the train stopping at a station it shouldn't?

08:20<Desolator>As you may know, I've been working on a new cross-platform updater for OTTD
08:22<Rubidium>cool, we're allowed to know it ;)
08:22<Desolator>lemme write details first...:P
08:23<Desolator>well, it's currently getting momentum, and as today I've had my last exam until about 5 months, I'll have plenty of time
08:24<Desolator>I've picked up the language, after many comparisons, it's PHP, using PHP-GTK 2
08:25<Rubidium>so you have to install that before you can run the 'binary'?
08:25<Desolator>I've found a nice site with OOP examples of using it, as well as a super guide of installing it on Unix-like systems (because for Window you have official binaries, as well as a great 3rd-party installer), so users won't have much trouble
08:25<Desolator>yep, only for the gui version, since I'll make a cli thingy as well
08:26<Desolator>I'm already learning the api from the official docs (, and I've already coded the basic structure
08:26<Rubidium>but installing another application before getting to your installer makes it quite 'hard' to use, especially because virtually nobody will have that installed
08:28<Desolator>...I would have used pygtk, but I already know PHP, and php-gtk is getting VERY stable, so it won't be long before it gets included in most distors (KateOS has it's package manager coded in it)
08:28<Desolator>also, I'll try to make a bash script to install php-gtk in one shot, so I won't get too many complains
08:30|-|Deathmaker [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
08:32<Desolator>well, questions?
08:33|-|BiA|pavel-css [] has joined #openttd
08:34<BiA|pavel-css>again :/
08:34<Rubidium>well... VIM is very stable and is also included in all default installations, so why would php-gtk? Why should I even install a gnome toolkit when not using gnome at all?
08:35<SpComb>eek, GUI applications in PHP
08:35|-|h3lb [~helb@] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
08:35<Desolator>SpComb: what?
08:36|-|h3lb [~helb@] has joined #openttd
08:36<Desolator>Rubidium: I don't see what's the big problem in using gtk+
08:37<Rubidium>you having to release a 20+ MB binary for 'noobs'?
08:37<SpComb>Desolator: seems like a bad idea
08:38<Desolator>Rubidium: do I need to point to BuildOTTD? :P
08:38<SpComb>Python's better suited for applications, and with py2exe you can get a reasonable-sized (couple MB) .exe out of a python script
08:38<Rubidium>Desolator: but that's a totally different tool
08:39<Rubidium>it needs to contain that compiler
08:39<SpComb>oh yes, ship a compiler with it, and have it compile svn revisions for you :P
08:40<Desolator>Rubidium: also, it's not for noobs, the current windows build can be of good use for servers, it can update open and start it or another app or batch file or anything like that
08:40<SpComb>right, that's what BuildOTTD does
08:40<Desolator>with windows-only, requiring a 40 MB + binary (.NET)

08:44<svip>That one should make install, not war.
08:46[~]Rubidium wonders why one needs a tool to update the nightlies; just two commands are enough
08:46<+glx>wget && unzip :)
08:46<SpComb>Rubidium: not everyone lives in the wonderful dev world that is linux
08:47<Rubidium>curl -s`curl -s`.tar.bz2|tar -xj && mv OTTD-linux-i686-nightly-* nightly
08:47<svip>They don't?
08:47<Rubidium>and you can run that on windows too, okay... you require a basic shell but that's about all
08:47<svip>I assume you have that in a script?
08:48<+glx>no we always use latest trunk ;)
08:48<Rubidium>primarily because I never download nightlies... they are well... too old ;)
08:49<svip>;) Oh right.
08:49<svip>I am sorry.
08:49<+glx>and when I need to check something in nightlies I just svn up -r

09:53<Svish>hmm... something else that would be really sweet (that probably is already in the game, I just dont know where to find it), is if you could view the station cover area for existing stations... maybe like a toggle on and off like the loading percentate stuff that is either there or totally gone.
09:55<Eddi|zuHause2>there are people who attempted that already, but they gave up because they found the calculation of the area too weird
09:56<Eddi|zuHause2>but it's actually very easy...
09:56<svip>I came here with a simple dream; a dream of killing all humans. And this is how it must end?!
09:56<Eddi|zuHause2>you take the outermost components of the station in each direction
09:57<Eddi|zuHause2>you take the largest radious from each compnent of the station
09:57<Eddi|zuHause2>and add that radius to the rectangle defined by the outermost components
09:58<Ondalf_Stardust>haha... that bash-link was hilarious :P

10:56<UnderBuilder>will be good if the max speed of the trains were only an average showcase and it could be suppered, so a tgv with two passengers wagons can reach ~265 kmh instead of 241kmh
10:56<UnderBuilder>only in realistic train speed
10:58<LordAzamath>is there anyone, who doesn't use realistic accel?

11:02<@Belugas>i don't care about acceleration

11:06<LordAzamath>true Belugas...afair you test it not play :D
11:07<@Belugas>been a long time i have not played
11:09<@Belugas>really played...
11:09<@Belugas>i would have this kind of guilt: ho my god.. i should really debug/implement stuff... not waste my time playing...
11:10<Prof_Frink>Belugas: "I'm not playing, I'm looking for inspiration for new features."
11:10<Prof_Frink>"Ooh, coal mine increased production"
11:11<@Belugas>hehe... Prof_Frink, it's not the lack of ideas, believe me :) I've got enough ideas to work on up until ver 1.0 ;)
11:12|-|Leviathan [] has joined #openttd
11:12<Prof_Frink>Belugas: You don't tell people that.
11:12<Leviathan>how do i stop this?
11:12<Leviathan>im playing multiplayer
11:12<Leviathan>presignas dont work?
11:12<Leviathan>i cant build them..
11:13<LordAzamath>why can't u build presignals?
11:13<Prof_Frink>Play on a server where presignals aren't disabled?
11:13<LordAzamath>presignals can be disabled?
11:13<Leviathan>im playing on lan so i can enbable them
11:14<Leviathan>i thought to build them u just keep clicking signal on the square but they wont build
11:14<Leviathan>we are using default settings
11:14<Leviathan>just installed
11:14<@Belugas>Prof_Frink: this is voluntary. there is nothing more frustrating than having to debate over what and how to do. It tends to get on my nerves and i'm not in the mood to work anymore on the matter.
11:14<Leviathan>ah! ty Prof_Frink !
11:14<Prof_Frink>regular click toggles onewayicity
11:15<Leviathan>so i should build them like
11:15<Prof_Frink>Leviathan: Play about. see what works
11:16<Prof_Frink>But in general: horizontal yellow bar on block entrance (from mainline) and vertical white on block exit (to platform).
11:18<Sionide>gotta love presigs :)
11:19<Prof_Frink>If by presigs you mean PBS...
11:19<LordAzamath>imagine game w/o presignals :D
11:19<Prof_Frink>Imagine a coop gam with non-fuckugly construction
11:20<Prof_Frink>Imagine an 'e' in the appropriate place in that last statement
11:20<LordAzamath>whats so fuckugly about #coop ?
11:21<@Belugas>imagine you have imagination
11:21<Sionide>i thought PBS weren't in ottd anymore?
11:21<@Belugas>they are not, Sionide
11:21<LordAzamath>pbs hasn't been
11:21<welterde>why did they got removed?
11:21<Sionide>too buggy welterde
11:21<Prof_Frink>LordAzamath: Oh look, a power station. Let's level half the map to build a 4,000 track station next to it.
11:22<Sionide>PBS took a lot of fun out of making junctions if you ask me
11:22<LordAzamath>Belugas..has there ever been a release with PBS for Open? I don't mean any INs
11:22<welterde>but they are realistic ;)
11:22<Sionide>they were in nightly builds for a while, i'm sure
11:22<LordAzamath>Prof Frink..take a loook at this coop game trihg now
11:22<LordAzamath>no terra
11:23<LordAzamath>actually we ae permitted to make 1 level of terra
11:23<@Belugas>it was better to remove PBS then to be submerged by bug reports. It was too buggy because of the overall conception
11:23<@Belugas>ditch and rebuild
11:24<@Belugas>but yapf had to be done first
11:24<@Belugas>and pbs over yapf will eventually be done
11:24|-|Gonozal_VIII [] has joined #openttd
11:24<@Belugas>but it's not a priority
11:24<Prof_Frink>LordAzamath: Depends: being bothered to sort out GRFs
11:24<@Belugas>LordAzamath, i don't know if a release was made with PBS, but plenty of nightlies had them
11:25<LordAzamath>frink..just dl the coop pack
11:25<LordAzamath>have you ever been to #coop game?
11:25<Prof_Frink>Can't be bothered.
11:25<@Belugas>welterde, realism should NEVER be an argument for inclusion of anything in OpenTTD, as far as i am concerned
11:25<Prof_Frink>Half the map was levelled to build a station
11:26<Prof_Frink>Belugas: Well, not never, but gameplay should not be sacrificed for realism
11:26<welterde>Belugas: but it bothers me that i cant build a efficent one-rail line
11:26<SpComb>Logs: (old: )
11:26<welterde>Belugas: because the train wont wait for the other train to enter the station
11:27<Gonozal_VIII>it will if you set the signals right
11:28<welterde>Gonozal_VIII: then you'll end up with ultra-complex stations
11:28<Gonozal_VIII>(no signal at all on the one way part)
11:28<LordAzamath>current FINISHED coop game
11:28<@Belugas>welterde, PBS had this tendancy to make it users made lousy station designs. Having the right tools, the right scheme, you can make some pretty efficient ones.
11:29<Gonozal_VIII>hmmm a finished game... i never really finished a game
11:29<welterde>Belugas: but not as efficent as RL ones :P
11:29<@Belugas>Prof_Frink: i agree, realism is really not a criteria in gameplau
11:29<welterde>where a train can __wait__ for a certain amount of time(or another train entering the station, etc.)
11:29<@Belugas>welterde, the hell about RealLife ones. It is a game, not a simulation of real-life
11:30<Gonozal_VIII>just remove the signals from the one way part and the train will wait
11:30<Prof_Frink>LordAzamath: OK, they've learnt since I was there
11:30<welterde>Gonozal_VIII: and what if there are 3 trains on that track?
11:30<Prof_Frink>LordAzamath: Also, KDE4 is le shiny.
11:31<welterde>two in the station one outside?
11:31<SmatZ>LordAzamath: I like your "Menüü" :-)
11:31<Gonozal_VIII>with 2 platforms? lock
11:31<LordAzamath>it's Estonian for Menu
11:31<Prof_Frink>Heavy metal kmenu \m/
11:31<welterde>Gonozal_VIII: yo... that buggers me
11:32<LordAzamath>and it's KDE 3.5
11:32<Prof_Frink>LordAzamath: I know.
11:32<Gonozal_VIII>aaaand how should that be changed? trains can't jump over eachother
11:32<Prof_Frink>I was just telling you.
11:32<hylje>Gonozal_VIII: are you sure?
11:33<welterde>Gonozal_VIII: could be solved with some kind of signal-wires ;)
11:33<Gonozal_VIII>signal wires? :S
11:38<hylje>guiding wires
11:40<@Belugas>for any of you who are using TTDPatch, do you know of any station grf using animations?

20:35<Gonozal_VIII>maybe you changed it in your 0.5.3 version and now you have a new cfg with default settings...
20:36<kyevan>Gonozal_VIII: Both are fresh installs.
20:37<Gonozal_VIII>doesn't matter, it doesn't override the cfg

20:38<Gonozal_VIII>that would suck, if the cfg would be back to default everytime you upgrade to a new nightly in the same directory...
20:39<kyevan>except... they're fresh installs.
20:39<kyevan>There WASN'T a config to overwrite!
20:40<Gonozal_VIII>even in the "my documents" folder? (win)
20:40<kyevan>Pretty sure so, yep
20:40<kyevan>Whatever, it doesn't really matter
