02:38<_Ben_>If anybody is actually here: Does anybody have any idea where the 2nd set of 'rock' sprites appear? There seems to be 2 sets, one which is rocky to the tile edge, and 1 with grass around the sides, I can't seem to find the later in game.

04:54<hylje>and use that to multithread ottd
04:54<hylje>e.g. threads are trains

06:35<blathijs>qball: hylje: The bigger problem would be the need for syncrhonization
06:35<blathijs>Because the advantage of threads is that you can use multiple cores/cpu's
06:36<blathijs>but the disadvantage of threads is that multiple cores/cpu's could be used and run in parallel
06:36<blathijs>so you need locking :-)
06:37<qball>yep
06:37<qball>still your os won't like it if you run 500+ threads
06:37<blathijs>That too :-)
06:38[~]blathijs is off
06:38<qball>btw.. the beta is
06:38<qball>realy realy realy nice

07:02<pavel1269>SmatZ: why playing with 32bpp-anim is so much slower than others? :/
07:03<pavel1269>just animations :)

07:29<FR^2>Hmm.
07:29<FR^2>For which phrases should I search in which forums, when I want to search for discussions concerning graphics of the railway signals?
07:30<FR^2>Most of my friends have difficulties seeing/recognizing the rail signals since they are so damn small...
07:31<FR^2>I wondered whether there is a discussion on the forums for "enhancing" the look of the signals or even "doubling the resolution" of the whole game so that one can use the signals and other small things easier.
07:34<TheMask97>just zoom in?
07:34|-|Zaviori [~zavior@d195-237-7-209.elisa-laajakaista.fi] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:35<FR^2>What do you mean, zoom in? There isn't a zoom factor "more scaled" than 1:1, is there? I'm talking about the latest beta
07:35<Digitalfox>Could blitter 32-anim receive more optimizations in future to be less slower? Or it's already at full optimization on code?
07:36<SmatZ>pavel1269: well... even 8bpp animations are killing my PC :) if it helps you ;)
07:37<Digitalfox>SmatZ: Is 8bpp and blitter already at maximum optimization at the code, or there may be more optimizations to do?
07:37<Digitalfox>*32bpp
07:37<Digitalfox>Is 8bpp and 32bpp blitter already at maximum optimization at the code, or there may be more optimizations to do?
07:38<SmatZ>Digitalfox: there is ever some space for optimizatins, but a lot of effort has been put into optimizing it already
07:38|-|divo [~asd@0x4dd443c6.adsl.cybercity.dk] has joined #openttd
07:38<SmatZ>at least 8bpp
07:39|-|Zaviori [~zavior@d195-237-7-209.elisa-laajakaista.fi] has joined #openttd
07:39<Digitalfox>ok, it's just that 32bpp-anim is really slow, but i do understand that 32bpp animations are a lot more cpu heavy, still maybe some optimizations could be done
07:39|-|xintron [xintron@blinkenshell.org] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:41<SmatZ>well... I don't know - the game is unplayable for me with each 32bpp blitter, I haven't looked into that for long time
07:45|-|xintron [xintron@blinkenshell.org] has joined #openttd
07:46<Digitalfox>SmatZ: yeah, is just that 32bpp without animations, well just imagine the water fixed.. The powerplants with no smoke, airports with no animationa lights, radar, etc... :(
07:46<FR^2>TheMask97: Is there a way to zoom in to get the signals displayed more clearly?

07:47<TheMask97>FR^2: sorry, I haven't played the beta yet, I thought you meant the current stable version
07:48<FR^2>TheMask97: In the current stable version that is possible? *big eyes* I'm trying.
07:49<SmatZ>FR^2: current beta doesn't have any zoom-in modes, and most likely eve 0.6 won't have
07:49<FR^2>Aaah, I see. Well, then my friends and I will have to stick with 0.5.3
07:50<SmatZ>FR^2: the problem is that the Windows Ctrl+D was nonportable and hard to maintain
07:50<FR^2>hmm.
07:51<FR^2>Is there any other way? A completely new tileset that is twice as big or something like that to make that game more playable?

09:30<NDRS>hi
09:30<NDRS>i have a question
09:30<FR^2>hiho
09:31<NDRS>how to upgrade all ships on the same time in TTDLX? :)
09:32<Eddi|zuHause>which version?
09:33<qball>howdy all
09:33<Digitalfox>Wouldn't it be possible to use some more GPU instead of CPU for 32bpp-anim, so CPU use would lower down?
09:33<NDRS>aum.. Open TTD
09:33<qball>version. is not the name
09:34<Eddi|zuHause>NDRS: http://wiki.openttd.org/index.php/Replacing_Vehicles
09:34<NDRS>THANKS :D
09:34<NDRS>I'm playing online with my older brother.. and he is just laughing at me :(
09:35<pavel1269>i would too :)
09:35<NDRS>:P
09:35<NDRS>best game on earth.. but im new to open ttd
09:36<pavel1269>best .. umm ... i don't know :)
09:37<pavel1269>but this game i've played for longest time
09:37<qball>ha my company from yesterday is still online
09:37<qball>lets see how much cash is there
09:37<qball>yesterday I hit the 1.000.000.000 pounds
09:38<qball>ha 22.000.000.000 pounds

09:41<SmatZ>qball: what version are you using?
09:41<qball>the beta
09:41<qball>0.6.0-beta2
09:41<SmatZ>it has been fixed already, ok :)
09:42<qball>hmmm I wonder what the best tactic is to upgrade from rail to maglev
09:42<SmatZ>send all trains to depot, sell them, convert track and build new trains
09:43<qball>lot's o work
09:43<SmatZ>you will need different number of trains because of different cargo capacities and different train speeds
09:44<FR^2>qball: Build a second depot, create equivalent trains with maglev, copy the plan from the others ;)
09:44<Eddi|zuHause>qball: use a trainset that does neither require this nor makes it viable
09:45<qball>bah, old trains are still making 800m pounds a year
09:45<qball>that's like 8m pounds each
09:45<Eddi|zuHause>e.g. the DBSetXL does not allow transportation of raw materials through maglev

11:42<_Ben_>hi, I asked this earlier, but I take it everyone was asleep, so I'll just ask again and see if anyone knows... How do I make the 2nd set of 'rocky' sprites (the rocks/grey-black landscape tiles) appear? They are the same as the first but without the grassy border
11:43<@Belugas>don't know waht you are talking about, _Ben_
11:43<@Belugas>care to show some visual clues?
11:43<_Ben_>Ok, I'll do that..one sec
11:45<Gonozal_VIII>i know what you mean, decoded an looked at the file some days ago
11:45<Gonozal_VIII>don't know what they are for, maybe it was intended that they are placed if surrounding tiles are rocks too
11:47<_Ben_>Thats what geektoo also suggested, but I can't seem to make them appear that way.
11:47<_Ben_>For the people who didn't understand my discription > http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g226/ben_robbins_/rockysprites.png < I can't get the set that appear like B to appear

11:49<@Belugas>ok
11:49[~]Belugas searches
11:50<Gonozal_VIII>a full set would also require tiles with grass on one side, two sides three sides in different combinations and so on...
11:54<_Ben_>I'm surprised the original had 2 variations actually, it doesn't seem very convervative considering the amount of sprites available
11:54<@Belugas>set A is referenced by SPR_FLAT_ROCKY_LAND_1, set B by SPR_FLAT_ROCKY_LAND_2
11:54<@Belugas>so... where is the disctinction...

13:37<narg>greetings
13:46<narg>does anyone have a hint for boosting primary industry production in the latest nighlty?
13:46<narg>i searched forums for like 3 hours :/
13:47<narg>rating is around 74-80 but is staying at around 70 (for a forest)
13:47|-|peter__ [~petern@217.151.109.242] has joined #openttd
13:49<@Belugas>narg, try to make it so you pick up all the wood you can get. The better yu serve the station, the higher the rating
13:49<narg>distance from pick to drop is around 100 squares
13:50<@Belugas>drop does not matter. It's the pick part that does
13:50<narg>and four trains with cap 100 going there
13:50<narg>there are two lanes at forest pick
13:50<narg>there is a train waiting most of the time
13:51<narg>every 2 weeks or so a full train (100wood) is leaving pick to drop
13:51<@Belugas>there has to be one all the time if you want to increase rating. "no waiting" is the key
13:52<narg>but is it important how long it takes the trains to full-load?
13:52<narg>i tried to scale train capacity to production
13:53<@Belugas>that, i don't know
13:53<narg>how many years does it take to get a forest to produce say like 1000/month
13:53<@Belugas>but i doubt length of train is really important
13:53<narg>yap, i guess trainlenght needs to fit production rate
13:53<@Belugas>dunno, it's pretty random stuff, plus the rating
13:54<narg>otherwise there are loading to long, and that not good for the payment (time/distance)
13:54<narg>i checked 10 years on fast forward, good station rating, but the forest keeps production very low
13:54<@Belugas>payment is relevant by the time you leave the station and the time it takes for arrival

13:56<@Belugas>no
13:56<narg>okay, thanks for the info
13:56<narg>say you have a train with 500wood capacity, but the forest only makes 32/month, so it takes ages to full-load
13:57<@Belugas>use more smaller trains
13:57<narg>> less money paid for the cargo loaded first
13:57<narg>of course i do :)
13:57<narg>my problem is just the production rate not incrreasing with the smooth eco....
13:58<narg>over years...
13:58<narg>wiki says a station rating of around 75% is optimal chance for increase in production.
13:59<narg>there is demand (train waiting at station) but the forest does not spit out more wood for them...
13:59<kyevan>I would have thought it would increase at least just as much in the 80s and 90s
13:59<narg>1980s?
13:59|-|peterbrett [~peter@cpc2-oxfd6-0-0-cust544.oxfd.cable.ntl.com] has joined #openttd
14:00<kyevan>no, 80% and 90% rating
14:00<narg>sirkoZ smooth economy patch got in trunk since 11500 right?
14:01<narg>it says if rating is >60 percent its a good chance to go up
14:01<narg>if <60 is goes down slowly to starting values
14:01<narg>i have never seen a prim industry producing more than 300units/month
14:01<narg>independently of the stationrating.... :(
14:03<narg>belugas: is sirkoZ smooth eco patch in the latest nightly (this night 2 am?)
14:03<kyevan>narg: Have you seen one producing more than 255?
14:03<narg>yes
14:03<narg>i have a forest spitting 302/month
14:04<kyevan>It's amazing how often that's the limit. It's not like an extra byte matters much <_<
14:04<kyevan>narg: ...
14:04<kyevan>302 > 300
14:04<@Belugas>it's not garanteed that industry will always increase. it's always changing. random stuff. And yes, there is some part of SirkoZ's patch in trunk
14:04<narg>3% i think

14:04<narg>is the chance for increas if station rating is over 60%
14:05<@Belugas>kyevan, production is a byte, havuing a multiplier applied to it

14:07<narg>well, with the actual nightly its better than in 11600, i had oil wells and farms with rates around 30grain/12livestock...
14:08<narg>oil wells going down to 24.000/month and then disapearing :)
14:08<narg>(for no reason)
14:09<hylje>oil wells disappear like that
14:09<hylje>they get replaced with offshore platforms

14:17<pavel1269>:o
14:17<Gonozal_VIII>yes, time since last train is a part of the rating
14:18<Gonozal_VIII>there should always be a train loading
14:18<narg>so shorter trains are better than longer trains if production is average
14:18<narg>later when they spit 1k or 2k of raw material it does not matter
14:18<hylje>really long trains are only useful for secondary / aggregated cargo

14:19<Gonozal_VIII>doesn't matter if long or short as long as there's always one at the station loading

14:19<narg>any more hints for boosting my primary industry production rates? :)
14:19<+glx>but for your finance it's better if the train doesn't spend month to load
14:19<Gonozal_VIII>statue
14:19<Eddi|zuHause>i usually search for 2-3 raw material industries in an area, send short trains to a gathering station, and send long trains to the secondary industry
14:19<Gonozal_VIII>10% more
14:19<narg>yap
14:19<narg>for the rating
14:20<@Belugas>by the way, farms CAN be closed down. They are part of the ORGANIC type of industries. The only ones that will not have a chance to close down are those we call BLACK_HOLE, mainly the banks, the watertower, the powerstations and toy shops
14:20<Gonozal_VIII>i try to use trucks for that because it looks a bit more realistic :-)
14:20<@Belugas>evertything else can close down
14:20<narg>thx belugas
14:20<narg>that must be the reason for my farms collapsing for no reason :)
14:20<Gonozal_VIII>10% more rating means you also get 10% more of the produced cargo
14:20<+glx>and oil wells never increase

14:26<+glx>very easy :)
14:26<narg>or is 461million like 20.000DM :)
14:26<narg>inflation
14:26<Eddi|zuHause>it's 4*20
14:26<narg>ah :)
14:26<Eddi|zuHause>and i set the factor to 20

14:27<narg>hehe
14:27<Eddi|zuHause>a factor of 1:4.000.000.000.000
14:27<narg>i will try building a system like yours with transfer station
14:27<Eddi|zuHause>in 1922/23
14:27<@Belugas>we are quite limited regarding the inflation... i think the max we can handle is 4% or something in that zone
14:27<narg>prim industriy > short train > transfer drop > longer train picking up > Drop
14:28<Gonozal_VIII>you could abuse that, take full loan right before the inflation and buy trains
14:28<Eddi|zuHause>narg: the important thing about transfer is, you have to time it right so that cargo does not pile up in the intermediate station
14:29<narg>as on your picture :)
14:29<narg>looks like 1k waiting there
14:30<Gonozal_VIII>also the pickup train shouldn't stand around with 99% cargo waiting month for full load...

14:32<narg>the cargo ages when waiting to be transfered right?

14:32<Gonozal_VIII>yes
14:32<narg>its more realistic isnt it

15:43<Eddi|zuHause>"German narrator Heinz Piper originally made a grammatical mistake in his introduction to the 18 minute version: He misquoted Warden’s line “Same procedure as every year” as “Same procedure than every year”. While the mistake appears to have gone unnoticed initially, it later prompted annual protest letters to the NDR, most notably from German teachers of English. The NDR eventually responded by editing the recording slightly,
15:43<Eddi|zuHause>substituting a small bit of its audio track with audio recorded during one of the rehearsals. Thus, in 1988, the error had been edited out and Piper could be heard to correctly say “Same procedure as every year”. This in turn annoyed some purists who would rather respect the original."

16:03<Eddi|zuHause>i did not find the first season that great
16:03<Eddi|zuHause>might be because of the translation though
16:04<Gonozal_VIII>that's why i'm downloading it in english
16:04<Gonozal_VIII>already saw it in tv in german
16:06<kyevan> Is it treason to listen to the music from SimCity Classic while playing TTD? >_>
16:06<Eddi|zuHause>season 3 is available in dual language, i might start watching in english...
16:06<Eddi|zuHause>i don't remember the music from sim city
16:06<Gonozal_VIII>i never play games with the music on
16:07<Eddi|zuHause>we had only PC Speaker back then

16:08<kyevan>Of course, they never used even parts of it in the later SimCities >_>
16:08<Eddi|zuHause>i had a soundcard already when i got TT

18:56<Gonozal_VIII>i know that too
18:56<Eddi|zuHause>each action i a sprite

18:57<Gonozal_VIII>i guess that's the problem

18:57<Gonozal_VIII>-t

18:58<Gonozal_VIII> 3 * 22 0B 83 7F 00 "2.6 alpha 0 r1705" 00 <--
18:58<Eddi|zuHause>that might be more of a problem, somewhere in openttd is a variable that says "we simulate this version of ttdp"

19:00<Gonozal_VIII>i should look what the lines really do instead of just the comments^^
19:01<Eddi|zuHause>that's just a name, somewhere near there should be the actual check
19:02<Gonozal_VIII>but it doesn't skip everything, it deactivates the grf... that's a different action, right?
19:03<Eddi|zuHause>"skip everything" is the same as "deactivate"
19:03<Eddi|zuHause>action B does only tell how to generate an error message
19:05<Gonozal_VIII>a better language for grfs would be really nice...
19:06<fjb>A compiler for a high level language to nfo would do. But that is not easy to make.
19:09<@Bjarni>The class on prophecy has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. <-- tells something about the skills of the teacher :P
19:09<fjb>The big problem with nfo is the self modifying code.
19:10<@Bjarni>ohh... grf encoding stuff
19:10<Eddi|zuHause>problem in which way?
19:10<@Bjarni>we should simplify this mess :s
19:10<@Bjarni>preferably to a level where I can understand it
19:10<fjb>The compiler has to know in advance what code it pissibly will generate.
19:11<fjb>possibly
19:11<fjb>:-)
19:11<Eddi|zuHause>a compiler needs not necessarily exploit every single feature of the base language
19:11<Eddi|zuHause>if you need to know what you will do, you just traverse the tree another time
19:11<fjb>It has to when there is no possible work around.
19:12<fjb>It is possible to generate self modifying code, but that makes the compiler a lot more complicated.
19:12<Eddi|zuHause>yeah, for that you need to know the base language well enough to know if you have other workarounds
19:13<fjb>And you have to do the whole compiler by hand. No compiler generating tools are supporting self modifying code.
19:13<Eddi|zuHause>the question is, for which feature do you actually need self modifying code?
19:13<fjb>Arguments passed to the grf.
19:14<Eddi|zuHause>alright, but you can probably do that in an isolated part of the grf
19:14<Eddi|zuHause>and then refer to that part with all other actions
19:14<fjb>Not really.
19:15<fjb>It will possibly modify the sprite number.
19:15<fjb>And the sprite number is used in a lot of places.
19:15<Eddi|zuHause>yes, you replace the number in one action 2
19:16<Eddi|zuHause>and then refer to that action 2 from everywhere else
19:16<Eddi|zuHause>(from what limited knowledge i have of nfo)
19:16<fjb>You can modify other things too.
19:17<fjb>You have to profide the self modifying functionallityx in the compiler in any way.
19:17<Eddi|zuHause>the question is, do you need to do that in the higher language?
19:18<fjb>Yes.
19:18<Eddi|zuHause>in modern high level languages, self modifying code is usually avoided by introducing function pointers or virtual functions
19:18<fjb>The language does not contain parts to modify the language, but the generated code has to modify itself.

19:19<Eddi|zuHause>yes, dynamic resolving of virtual function calls is also some kind of self modifying code
19:20<Eddi|zuHause>the point is that this is limited to a quite small place (the virtual dispatcher table)
19:20<fjb>It still makes the compiler more compicated.
19:20<fjb>complicated
19:21<Eddi|zuHause>i really don't see that as a problem
19:21<fjb>Then write a compiler...
19:25<kyevan>Has anyone considered adding pretty graphs for money, income, debt, station rating, etc?
19:25<Gonozal_VIII>yes
19:26<Gonozal_VIII>and there are some patches for that
19:30<@Belugas>fjb, self modifying code is not the most used nfo spec, by far. you are stopping yourself out of an exception
19:31<@Belugas>you'd better simply add the notion of keywords to certain type of action/command rather to burst in complex plan

19:33<@Belugas>furthermore, may i recall that in some language, such as delphi, you can have assembly lines specified. why not do the same with some pretty twisted nfo lines?
19:33<fjb>Belugas: You are speaking of a kind of assembler? I already thought about that.
19:34<@Belugas>i'm pointing out stuff you were discussing earlier. yes, an assembler/complier. i've worked on the matter a long time ago.
19:34<@Belugas>it was nice, bus as i do not have much experience in such kind of programming, it stayed at the level of concept
19:35<fjb>A way to include nfo hex codes in the high level language would be needed anyway.
19:36<fjb>nfo is no specified processor, new opcodes may be added to nfo any time.
19:38<Eddi|zuHause>yes, there should be a way to introduce NFO code in the higher language

19:52<@Belugas>after a very shgort discussion, the name have changed to NGL, but apart from that, it did not changed
19:53<@Belugas>oups... short discussion with Dalestan...
19:53<@Belugas>but... it does not do even one tenth in this form, to what it should do
19:54<@Belugas>just a matter of reflexion if you are serious about going there
19:54<@Belugas>and i sincerely hope laziness would not kill that good intention mood you seem to be in ;)
19:54<fjb>I'm not sure how rserious I am about writing a compiler.
19:54<fjb>:-)
19:55<@Belugas>maybe not the compiler itself, but maybe you guys can work togueter in actually defining the language itself
19:56<@Bjarni>Belugas: that looks like a good
19:56<@Bjarni>idea
19:56<@Bjarni>but I wonder about one thing.... why did nobody tell me about this idea? :)
19:56<fjb>Bjarni: You will write the compiler?
19:56<@Bjarni>not right now
19:57<@Belugas>thanks Bjarni. Becasue when i wrote it down, i was not a dev yet, nor was i ineresting in been one nor did i knew you
19:57<@Belugas>so...
19:57<@Bjarni>ohh.. that long ago
19:57<@Belugas>yup
19:58<@Belugas>i have to go, will be back in a while
20:00<qball>hi Bjarni
20:01<@Bjarni>hi qball
20:01<@Bjarni>do I know you? :)
20:01<@Bjarni>I think so....
20:01<qball>depends on the quality of your memory
20:01<@Bjarni>I have seen your nick before...
20:02<qball>maybe I should make some nasty remarks to trigger your memory.
20:02<qball>anway, great work on the latest beta
20:02<@Bjarni>clearly you didn't end up in hall of shame for saying stupid stuff... I would have noticed ;)
20:03<qball>nasty != stupid be definition. (but probly is in my case)
20:03<qball>s/be/by/
20:03<@Bjarni>so basically you aren't stupid.. just a pervert or ?
20:04<qball>no pervert.
20:04<qball>(I hope)
20:04<@Bjarni>hehe
20:04<@Bjarni>the last comment tells it all
20:05<qball>but i realy enjoyed playing the beta.
20:05<@Bjarni>your next question might be something like "is it normal to have a thing for women in red socks?" or something
20:05[~]qball still waits for the promised pbs in yapf..
20:05<qball>Bjarni: I prefer women in red underwear...
20:06<qball>but a detail.
20:06<@Bjarni>heh
20:07<@Bjarni>most men prefer women in NO underwear xD
20:07<qball>true true
20:07<@Bjarni><qball> but i realy enjoyed playing the beta. <-- the question is not if it is enjoyable but more if it is stable
20:07<@Bjarni>but it's still nice to know this :)
20:07<qball>worked fine for me on my 64bit machine
20:07<qball>gonna give ppc a try tomorrow
20:08<qball>some drawing glitches
20:08<@Bjarni>?
20:08<qball>like buttons marked unsensitive, while you could still click them (and was usefull to click them)
20:08<@Bjarni>unknown graphical problems?
20:08<@Bjarni>odd
20:08<qball>a graph seeemed to be know
20:09<qball>but if you buy a train that cannot be refitted, add refittable wagon, the refit button is still insensitive, but you can click it
20:09<qball>(and refit the wagons0
20:09<qball>this was with the dbset

20:11<@Bjarni>hmm
20:11<@Bjarni>do we really still have that one...
20:12<qball>it was in beta2
20:13<Eddi|zuHause>"hall of shame for saying stupid stuff" <-- you mean bash.org or qdb.us?

20:14<Digitalfox>Oh and by the way merry Christmas o_O
20:14<qball>merry xmas
20:15<Eddi|zuHause>i will never understand this "xmas" thing...
20:16<qball>something todo with a stable, and a new born thingy
20:16<Digitalfox>Let's see what was the first commit from Bjarni o_O
20:16<Eddi|zuHause>no, i understand what "christmas" is
20:17<Eddi|zuHause>but i have no idea how you come from "christmas" to "xmas"
20:17<qball>lazy
20:17<Digitalfox>By the way, what does " merry " means ?? I don't think that direct translation to Portuguese exists, so could someone explain what it means?
20:18<Eddi|zuHause>in german it is "froh" or "fröhlich"
20:18<qball>a horse I think,
20:20<Eddi|zuHause>Digitalfox: maybe this helps you (german-spanish dictionary) http://dict.leo.org/esde?lang=de&lp=esde&search=froh
20:20<Eddi|zuHause>"frohe Weihnachten" translates to "feliz Navidad" in spanish
20:20<Digitalfox>Eddi|zuHause: like " happy "
20:21<Digitalfox>i see
20:21<qball>enjoyfull
20:21<qball>a well night
20:21<Eddi|zuHause>it is close to "happy", but not really the same
20:21<Digitalfox>never really thought about it, but now after thinking about it i was curious ;)
20:21<Digitalfox>but ok i got the point :) thanks
20:22<Eddi|zuHause>"happy" is more "glücklich" than "fröhlich"
20:23<Eddi|zuHause>i have never seen anyone wishing a "happy christmas", only a "happy new year"
20:24<qball>Bjarni: even on this http://electricpotential.net/ircstats/openttd.html
20:24<Eddi|zuHause>although you rarely say "glückliches neues Jahr" in german... usually rather "guter Rutsch [ins neue Jahr]"
20:24<qball>anyway i was off to sleep.
20:24<Eddi|zuHause>"slide well" ;)
20:25<Eddi|zuHause>(occasionally meant literally :p)

21:26<kyevan>I want support for nicely rounded tracks.
21:27<Gonozal_VIII>draw the sprites for it
21:27<kyevan>You would need to redraw all the cars, too, wouldn't you? >_>
21:28<kyevan>I suppose you could just change at the right times and it might not look TOO bad.
21:28<Gonozal_VIII>that's where the voxel thing came up in the forum
21:28<Eddi|zuHause2>problem is, in ttd scale, a "voxel" does not have equal size in all directions
21:29<Eddi|zuHause2>vehicles travelling diagonal are longer than vehicles travelling on X/Y tracks
21:30<Gonozal_VIII>which is something that i would call a bug^^
21:30<kyevan>So, rewrite the whole thing in true 3d? :P
21:30<@Bjarni><Digitalfox> Wow bjarni fisrt commit was in r114 in 22 August 2004, pretty old guy on open o_O <-- that's even with the current svn server. I committed to the old one too
21:31<Eddi|zuHause2>i suppose you'd get away with 4 more angles
21:31<kyevan>Eddi|zuHause2: Are they really longer, or do they just look longer because of the angle?
21:32<kyevan>Actually... I wonder...
21:32<Gonozal_VIII>if they would just look longer because of the angle it wouldn't be a problem with voxels
21:32<Eddi|zuHause2>kyevan: a diagonal track is 0.7 length of a normal track
21:32<Eddi|zuHause2>but there fits only one wagon on it (0.5 normal track)
21:33<Gonozal_VIII>but... does it have to stay that way?
21:33<Eddi|zuHause2>so the 0.5 wagon is streched to 0.7 length
21:33<kyevan>Gonozal_VIII: Well, without art reworking, probably >_>
21:33<Eddi|zuHause2>where 0.7 is actually sqrt(2)/2
21:35<kyevan>~0.707106781
21:35<Eddi|zuHause2>yes, i know what sqrt(2)/2 is
21:35<kyevan>so, .7 :P
21:36<kyevan>Butanyway
21:36<Eddi|zuHause2>and the sqrt(2) comes from good old pythagoras
21:36<kyevan>Gonozal still has a point. Why streach in the first place?
21:36<kyevan>I mean, OK, it'll make math a little harder, probably >_>
21:37<Eddi|zuHause2>hysterical raisins
21:37<kyevan>Oh, right
21:37<Eddi|zuHause2>two problems:
21:37<Eddi|zuHause2>a) isolate all occurences of this stretch, and resolve them simultaneously
21:37<Eddi|zuHause2>b) convince the TTD purists that this is necessary
21:38<Gonozal_VIII>bugfix
21:38<kyevan>The origional thing was written in assembly, no one wants to do more than they have to in assembly. >_>
21:38<Eddi|zuHause2>that's not even an excuse
21:38<kyevan>"Paving the way for Cool New Features".
21:39<kyevan>Eddi|zuHause2: I'm being silly >_>
21:39<Eddi|zuHause2>you drank too much
21:39<Gonozal_VIII>or you could still use voxels and modify the way they are drawn to stretch them
21:39<kyevan>(I really, really wonder why Sawyer wrote TT/D in assembly to begin with...)
21:40<kyevan>Aye, non-square pixles have been used before, why not non-cube voxels? :P
21:41<Eddi|zuHause2>the problem is not to strech the voxels, that can be done easily
21:41<Eddi|zuHause2>the problem is the transformation steps for the intermediate angles
21:41<Gonozal_VIII>for every angle in use you define a stretching factor
21:42<Gonozal_VIII>could even be linear, so easy to calculate on the fly
21:42<Eddi|zuHause2>the other problem is, rendered sprites need to be pixel perfect (in 8bpp "compatibility mode")
21:44<Gonozal_VIII>what does that mean? pixel perfect?
21:44<Eddi|zuHause2>meaning you can't calculate intermediate pixels in 8bpp
21:44<Eddi|zuHause2>in 32bpp you can do AA stuff to make downscaled versions look good
21:45<Eddi|zuHause2>in 8bpp you can't automatically downscale an image
21:45<Eddi|zuHause2>the downscaled images need human touchups
21:46<Gonozal_VIII>ok, that's a good point, did that a lot myself
21:47<Gonozal_VIII>use 32bpp voxels :-)

22:06<kyevan>A special april fools release with the language files removed except for one special one - Pig Latin :P
22:06<kyevan>There already is a pig latin file o.O
22:07<Gonozal_VIII>yes there is
22:07<kyevan>Ig-pay atin-lay is-yay a-yay eird-way ittle-lay ame-gay.
22:07<kyevan>Pig latin is a weird little game

22:07<kyevan>It's just a slightly cyphered english
22:07<Gonozal_VIII>.....
22:08<kyevan>Google's available in it, why not openttd?
22:08<Eddi|zuHause2>Gonozal_VIII: http://usaerklaert.wordpress.com/2007/09/03/schweinelatein/
22:08<Gonozal_VIII>i already googled for it...
22:08<kyevan>(There's also a klingon translation of google.)
22:09<kyevan>http://www.google.com/intl/xx-piglatin/ <-- Oogle-gay
22:09<kyevan>But they don't type the -es
22:10<Gonozal_VIII>AAAAAAAA.lng
22:10<kyevan>I normaly don't, except when I'm teaching someone.
22:10<Eddi|zuHause2>"Angelsächsische Kinder schnappen irgendwann Pig Latin auf. Das ist eine Spielsprache, bei der englische Worte so umgestellt werden, dass sie fremdartig klingen. Gegen Erwachsene hilft das meist wenig, weil sie - auch wenn es für Kinder unwahrscheinlich klingt - auch einmal in dem Alter waren. Aber gegen Deutsche funktioniert es wunderbar, denn die haben keine Ahnung, was abgeht."
22:10<kyevan>Oh god no.
22:10<kyevan>Someone did an AAAAAAA translation?
22:10<Gonozal_VIII>no^^ that's missing
22:11<kyevan>http://www.google.com/intl/xx-klingon/
22:11<kyevan>Google in Klingon, if you didn't beleave me.
22:11<Eddi|zuHause2>all people that attempted klingon translation before came across the same problem, there is no trains and railway vocabulary
22:11<kyevan>there's also l33t http://www.google.com/intl/xx-hacker/
22:11<kyevan>Eddi|zuHause2: PEople have tried it?
22:11<kyevan>Why am I not actually surprised?
22:12<Eddi|zuHause2>let's say you are not the first one that got this idea :p
22:12<kyevan>Oh, there's also Bork Bork Bork, http://www.google.com/intl/xx-bork/
22:13<kyevan>and Ewmer Fudd! http://www.google.com/intl/xx-elmer/
22:14<Gonozal_VIII>http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/AAAAAAAA :-)
22:15<Gonozal_VIII>would be hard to play if every word is AAAAAA ^^
22:16<kyevan>Gonozal_VIII: I know AAAAAAAA
22:16<kyevan>Gonozal_VIII: Not really, not if you know the game really well./
22:16<Gonozal_VIII>try to get a subsidy if every townname is AAAAAA ;-)
22:16<kyevan>There are enough picture cues that you could build and manage trains and such just fine
22:16<kyevan>Well, there are some areas that are tougher :P
22:16<Gonozal_VIII>ok, you can click on the message to center...

22:28<Gonozal_VIII>wow i just found the fastest way to read the forum
22:28<Gonozal_VIII>lots of undread posts?
22:28<Gonozal_VIII>Mark forums read
22:28<Gonozal_VIII>and you read everything :D
22:30<Eddi|zuHause2>Gonozal_VIII: you can cycle the appropriate towns when you click on the subsidy
22:30<+glx>I often do that in suggestions
22:30<Gonozal_VIII>i know eddi
22:31<Eddi|zuHause2>especially for experienced players, AAAAA should not be a big problem
22:31<Eddi|zuHause2>you get more problems with the town name generator
22:32<Eddi|zuHause2>i think that one checks the actual result string for duplicates
22:32<Gonozal_VIII>that's bad then
22:32<Eddi|zuHause2>instead, you can make an AAAAA.grf that replaces the font sprites
22:33<Gonozal_VIII>would that result in an endless loop or would it skip the town generation and you end up with a single town?
22:33<Gonozal_VIII>aaah good idea^^
22:33<Eddi|zuHause2>probably not endless, it will give up after a while

22:42<Gonozal_VIII>then that...
22:42<+glx>you had a ghost
22:42<Gonozal_VIII>yes me
22:43<Gonozal_VIII>i always have that when i get 8h disconnection
22:43<Eddi|zuHause2>honestly, 8h is insane
22:43<Eddi|zuHause2>and i go to bed
22:43<Gonozal_VIII>yes it is...
22:43<Gonozal_VIII>hmm that's an idea
22:44<+glx>you can't download anything to big in 8h
22:44<Gonozal_VIII>not via ftp
22:44<Gonozal_VIII>torrent doesn't have much problems with that
22:46<+glx>right
22:46<+glx>but still
22:47<Gonozal_VIII>yes, that's probably why they do that
22:50<Gonozal_VIII>and only huge stuff takes more than 8h to download on a 3mbit line
22:52<Gonozal_VIII>it's a bigger problem in multiplayer games...
22:52<Gonozal_VIII>not in openttd, i can just rejoin there
22:52<Gonozal_VIII>but there are other games where it's more complicated
22:53<Gonozal_VIII>but i didn't play any other games for a long time now anyways...

23:18<kyevan>why are there two snow line options, only one of which works?
23:18<Gonozal_VIII>where?
23:38<kyevan>In the config file
23:39<kyevan>in the generic options towards the top, there's snow_line (does nothing) and further down, in the patches, there's snow_line_height, which does.
23:40<Gonozal_VIII>does it get generated in a new config or is it from an old one?
23:41<kyevan>in a new one
