04:12<Lachie>I'm after a script for Linux that will change the color depth to 16bit, restart x server then run a program. then change dept back to 24 and restart x when it's done
04:12<blathijs>:-)
04:12<Lachie>or
04:12<Lachie>simply two scripts, one that will change it to 16 and restart X, the other changes to 24 and restarts X
04:12*Celestar goes replacing 303 Trains by Maglevs
04:13<blathijs>Lachie: The easy way would be to have two config files that you manually create instead of changing the config file automatically
04:13-!-TinoM [~Tino@i59F57B0F.versanet.de] has quit []
04:14<Lachie>like an xorg.conf1 and xorg.conf2 and mv them to xorg.conf on demand?
04:14<Lachie>not a bad approach
04:14<Celestar>hm ..
04:15<blathijs>Lachie: You can probably pass -ConfigFile or whatever option to X
04:15<Celestar>can't you switch color depth on-the-fly meanwhile? I know it works with resolution ...
04:15<Lachie>Celestar: nope
04:15<Celestar>blathijs: that does exist, even for the user
04:15<Lachie>atleast not with my hardware
04:15<blathijs>Yeah, I was just looking at xrandr for that
04:15<blathijs>Lachie: Tried xrandr?
04:15<Lachie>what's that?
04:16*Lachie googles
04:16<Lachie>hmm
04:16<blathijs>Thoug xrandr doesn't seem to list any options for changing bpp
04:16<Lachie>perhaps
04:16<Lachie>bbl
04:17<blathijs>I see some references to it on google, but that's only error messages from wine that it is not supported

07:16<Digitalfox>Anything planned for raising the speed limit of road vehicles and ships ( the famous 127KM/h ) in open, so NewGRF can add for example a road vehicle that will reach 200KM/h?
07:16<planetmaker>http://www.google.com/mars/#lat=-42.553080&lon=-16.171875&zoom=1&q=tharsis <- that one :P
07:17<Celestar>Digitalfox: where do road vehicles go > 127km/h (apart from PVs)
07:20<Digitalfox>Celestar while playing open in 2030.. I expect from 20 years from now, that road vehicles will have a much better AI and you will travel faster and safer ( that means you won't touch the drive wheel, the computer does everything ;) )
07:20<ln>Digitalfox: it's more likely that in 20 years the speed limits are lower than now.
07:20<Celestar>Digitalfox: I hope so, but I don'T see that (yet) happening (=
07:21<Digitalfox>So >127KM/h seems slow :(
07:21<Celestar>ln: I fear that you're right
07:22<Eddi|zuHause2>even if technically possible, there are still laws against trucks going >80km/h
07:22<Celestar>Eddi|zuHause2: that's germany.
07:22<Celestar>Eddi|zuHause2: they go faster in other countries
07:22<Mark>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_Superbus
07:22<Eddi|zuHause2>yes, but not unlimited ;)
07:23<Celestar>oh damn people, use planes :P
07:23<Eddi|zuHause2>i know no other countries where cars are allowed to go >130km/h at all
07:23<Digitalfox>This of topic, but one of things I hate more on speed lower defenders is that they think all cars are equal.. When I drive my Renault R5 120 KM/h seems too much fast for that car.. But when I driver my Audi A3 140 KM/h seems a nice speed for driving in Autoway
07:23<Noldo>I thing 120km/h is the highest speed limit here
07:24<Noldo>*think
07:24<Celestar>When I driver our 530d at 140km/h, it feels like sleeping
07:24<Celestar>revs at around 1900 :P
07:24-!-Frostregen [~sucks@dslb-084-058-150-211.pools.arcor-ip.net] has joined #openttd
07:25<ln>Digitalfox: Still, when you hit an object with your Audi A3, your body has the same limit of deceleration it can tolerate without fatal damage to internal organs.
07:25<Celestar>ln: well, you're more likely to survive a crash in an A3 at N km/h than in a R5 and N/2 km/h
07:25<Digitalfox>Celestar that's what i felt and feel every time I drive on autoway, but it's the law :(
07:26<Celestar>there must be a reason why the number of casualties p.a. on German roads is constantly decreasing
07:27<Celestar>and it's neither better drivers nor less accidents
07:27<Celestar>nor is it better roads
07:27<Digitalfox>better cars?
07:27<Celestar>Digitalfox: yes.
07:27<Celestar>this day and age, you can often walk away from an 70km/h head-on crash
07:27<Noldo>bad luck for the insurance companies
07:27<Digitalfox>I also think the same :)
07:27<Celestar>Noldo: not really, the number of accidents is constantly increasing
07:28<Noldo>injured people cost more that dead ones
07:28<Celestar>Noldo: depends on the injury P
07:28<Frostregen>http://www.destatis.de/jetspeed/portal/cms/Sites/destatis//Internet/DE/Grafiken/Verkehr/Diagramme/Strassenverkehrstote,property=image.gif
07:28<Noldo>also the cars are more expensive and more often not repairable
07:29<Celestar>Frostregen: plus consider the traffic density of 1970 with that of 2007...
07:29<ln>max(Sweden) = 110, max(Bjarniland) = 130, max(Finland) = 120
07:30<Celestar>max(Celestarland) = c
07:30<Eddi|zuHause2>what max speed does a Regio Citadis have?
07:30<Noldo>it was bit odd to drive in sweden because the limits are 110,90,70 etc. while 120,100,80 here
07:30<Eddi|zuHause2>(Tram/Railway hybrid)
07:31<Frostregen>@Celestar: Maybe this is a proove for the contrary. Look at the average speed on your way back home through rush-hour traffic ;)
07:31<Frostregen>today you cannot even reach deadly speeds ;)
07:31<ln>Noldo: and a 110 in sweden can be either a motorway or a narrow road.
07:31<Digitalfox>If you drive a good car that has nice crash resistance and technology ( yes not everybody can buy one, it's the world we have ;) ) you have a greater % of survival in car crash even if at 200KM/h..
07:32<Celestar>Frostregen: well, I'm trying to drive ahead of the rush-hour, but ok. I'm usually not exceeding 110km/h on the highways during my daily commute
07:32<Noldo>and that is the most excelent reason to go the same % faster
07:32<Celestar>on long range trips .. that's different
07:32<Celestar>150-160km/h cruise speed
07:33<ln>The problem is that as the safety of cars gets better, people also drive more unsafely because they have the feeling they are on a safe vehicle.
07:33<Digitalfox>I have seen a A3 from a friend ( before buying mine I was thinking on buying his ) cut in half by a tree at 190KM/s and guess what he survived with scratches =0 Sure yhe car had no fixing possible, and he was alone in the car, but he survived at 190KM/s
07:33<Eddi|zuHause2>Frostregen: i have a question about this statistics... how did they handle the "significant increase of area" around 1990?
07:34<Eddi|zuHause2>(assuming this is based on germany)
07:34<Frostregen>no further comment on their site
07:34<Frostregen>(statistisches bundesamt)
07:34<Eddi|zuHause2>(and that before 1990 they mean west germany)
07:35<Frostregen>maybe this explains the small hill around 1990
07:35<Celestar>Eddi|zuHause2: you can see a slight increase of casulaties in 1990
07:35<Celestar>because of the noticable increase in population
07:35<Eddi|zuHause2>i noticed that...
07:36<Eddi|zuHause2>but i kinda thought the increase should be more significant
07:36<Celestar>still 13.6 bodies per day :(
07:36<Celestar>Eddi|zuHause2: most people didn't have a car there.
07:36<Eddi|zuHause2>but the number of cars increased significantly over the next few years
07:37<Celestar>in 2004, they had 43000 fatalities in the USA
07:37<Eddi|zuHause2>that's almost 10 times the fatalities compared to 5 times of the population
07:37<Celestar>yes
07:37<Celestar>and a very very low speed limit
07:38<Celestar>btw: only 5% of the fatalities in germany invovle speeds > 120km/h
07:38<Eddi|zuHause2>well... seatbelts
07:39<Celestar>and sorry to say that: piss poor driving skills
07:39<Eddi|zuHause2>well, they don't pay 2000€ for a drivers license
07:40<Frostregen>http://www.destatis.de/jetspeed/portal/cms/Sites/destatis/Internet/DE/Content/Statistiken/Verkehr/Verkehrsunfaelle/Tabellen/Content50/UrsachenPersonenschaden,templateId=renderPrint.psml
07:40<Eddi|zuHause2>well, 2000€ is probably exaggerated
07:40<Celestar>Eddi|zuHause2: these days? 2000 EUR is cheap
07:41<Eddi|zuHause2>i think i payed something around 1500 DM back in 2000
07:41<Celestar>yeah, similar here
07:41-!-Wezz6400_ [~Wezz6400@ndb.demon.nl] has joined #openttd
07:41<Celestar>(1996)
07:41<Eddi|zuHause2>Celestar: it depends heavily on the city you are in ;)
07:41<Celestar>Eddi|zuHause2: I'm in expensive-city
07:41<Eddi|zuHause2>i know ;)
07:42<Eddi|zuHause2>Frostregen: not much snow in the last year, it appears :p
07:42<Frostregen>right ;)
07:42<Frostregen>but still...rain
07:43<Frostregen>people just don't know how to handle their cars
07:43<Celestar>too many fair-weather-drivers
07:43<Eddi|zuHause2>well, the effect of rain on the braking distance is easily misjudged
07:44<Frostregen>because they never tested it
07:44<Celestar>it depends highly on the intensity, the tyres, and the road itself
07:44<Eddi|zuHause2>because that is not part of the driving school
07:44<Celestar>Eddi|zuHause2: which is a bad thing imho
07:45<Frostregen>i think this is not possible in driving school
07:45<Frostregen>you learn how to handle a car after the driving school
07:45<Frostregen>would take way to much time
07:46<Eddi|zuHause2>my driving school offered a free coupon for a driving security lesson after finishing
07:47<Celestar>Frostregen: imagine pilots would operate like that ..
07:48<Frostregen>there are simulators :)
07:48<Celestar>there are car simulators as well
07:48<Frostregen>i have never seen any good
07:48<ln>14:33 < Digitalfox> I have seen a A3 from a friend [...] Sure yhe car had no fixing possible, and he was alone in the car, but he survived at 190KM/s <--- that's fast
07:49<ln>the friction by the atmosphere must be significant
07:50<Frostregen>compare with racing simulations... without the feel for acceleration/weight distribution, i just can't drive
07:50<Eddi|zuHause2>an aquaintance of mine almost died in his van (~100km/h) when he hit a lorry (~30km/h) going uphill
07:50<Eddi|zuHause2>Frostregen: i agree
07:59*Celestar resumes replacing 320 trains with maglevs
07:59<CIA-3>OpenTTD: truebrain * r13772 /branches/noai/src/ (ai/ai.cpp ai/ai_info.cpp settings.cpp): [NoAI] -Fix: make the AIPlayer settings _newgame aware
07:59<Eddi|zuHause2>i haven't done this maglev replacing in years
08:00<Celestar>neither have I :P
08:00<Eddi|zuHause2>not since i found the dbset ;)
08:00<Celestar>but that has the TR09
08:00<Celestar>and the ICE3 sucks for my network
08:01<Eddi|zuHause2>you mentioned ;)
08:01<Celestar>I can also reduce the number of trains
08:01<Celestar>which really really really helps
08:02<Eddi|zuHause2>as long as you do not have any cargo trains ;)
08:02<Celestar>I don't :)
08:02<Celestar>this is a pax only game
08:02<Eddi|zuHause2>yes, i figured ;)
08:05<Celestar>I'd rather restart the network with much fewer trains now and then slowly upgauge it again

09:27<Celestar>heh
09:27<Celestar>I've just spent $18e9 on the maglev replacing process
09:27<Celestar>nearly broke now :P
09:27<Eddi|zuHause2>nice ;)
09:28<Celestar>19 left to replace, 7 to discard
09:28<Celestar>the main question is: I have then 220 maglevs in the depots: Should I jumpstart them or launch them in some kind of organized manner?
09:29<Eddi|zuHause2>hm... i never have a use for the ET-11
09:32<Eddi|zuHause2>the game probably needs to start earlier, so you can have a big network by the time these express trains come out
09:33<Celestar>Eddi|zuHause2: yes.
09:33<Celestar>when did you start?
09:33<Eddi|zuHause2>1922 or so... with daylength x4
09:33<Eddi|zuHause2>now it's 1935
09:34<Celestar>started in 1920 here (no daylength, no build on pause)
09:34<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause2: doesn't your towns grow too fast?
09:34*Celestar wonders whether the game will crash when he tries to update the whole rail network to maglev at once
09:35<Eddi|zuHause2>Ammler: the cities grow quite fast, but the villages don't
09:35<Eddi|zuHause2>Ammler: i've tweaked a few values in the daylength patch, though
09:36<Ammler>did you play with eGRVTS already?
09:36<Eddi|zuHause2>like, the 256 tick industry callback is only called every daylength*256ticks
09:36<Eddi|zuHause2>i didn't even play with normal GRVTS
09:36<Celestar>1 to discard, 10 to replace
09:36<Ammler>you need quite small cities for those horse waggons
09:38<Eddi|zuHause2>Ammler: my central city is now ~30k while the villages around it hardly grew at all

09:59<Eddi|zuHause2>the max loan should be based on the amount of company assets

10:04<hylje>put it inside the town
10:04<fjb>Blow up the town.
10:04<Eddi|zuHause2>there's a steep valley and the town is in the valley, and the rail comes from the hills
10:05<Eddi|zuHause2>i don't want to put the station in the valley, but on the hill there is a factory in the way
10:05<hylje>peter1138: vehicle leasing could be good really, but might be enabled only later on?
10:06<fjb>Eddi|zuHause2: Other side of he valley?
10:06<Eddi|zuHause2>too far away from the city

10:10<@peter1138>Yes!
10:10<Eddi|zuHause2>7 is a weird number...
10:11<hylje>what about drag&drop stations?
10:11<@peter1138>I will get stuck later as I'm building 4 tile platforms at the moment.
10:11<@peter1138>hylje, too fiddly.
10:11<hylje>really?
10:12<fjb>You can enhance them later.
10:12<@peter1138>Some can be lengthened.
10:13<hylje>speaking of stations, where are my sloped and curvy stations?
10:13<hylje>or rolling load/unload?
10:14<@peter1138>Hmm, seems like the AI can't make money with UKRS :o
10:14<Gekz>awesome.
10:14<@peter1138>Although supporting the callbacks might help;
10:14<Gekz>they lose.
10:14<fjb>Curvy stationa would be great, or at least diagonal ones. But that will need new sprites.

11:44<joachim>what's "+7"?
11:44<@peter1138>TTDPatch's way of allowing larger stations.
11:45<Ammler>if active, it adds +7 to the length you choosed.
11:45<joachim>ah
11:45<DaleStan>It's TTDPatch's old way of allowing larger stations, and I agree that there are better solutions.
11:46<Ammler>old way, is there a newer?
11:46-!-zooks [~zooks@adsl-dc-2504c.adsl.wanadoo.nl] has left #openttd []
11:49<DaleStan>Sort of. Combine irregularstations and largestations, and you can tack on whatever tiles or platforms you want/need.
11:50<@peter1138>Ammler: "chose"
11:51<CIA-3>OpenTTD: glx * r13775 /trunk/src/network/network_server.cpp: -Codechange: enforce the validity of a NetworkAction (chat packet) issued by a client
11:51<DaleStan>That's my usual way; if you know when you're building the station that it needs to be bigger than 7x7, you're either seriously over-engineering, or replacing a station. (I basically don't do the latter.)
11:52<@peter1138>Mmm, cup of tea :D
11:52<Ammler>well, 8 is quite common, DBSet ICE has that length fixed (4-8-12-16)
11:53<joachim>i use 30
11:53<@peter1138>30 tiles long?
11:53<@peter1138>Some limits should never've been broken :p
11:53<joachim>for the mainline goods trains
11:53<joachim>hehe
11:54<Ammler>does the train needs to wait for loading?
11:54<Brianetta>8 platforms is great for having two termini facing different directions.
11:54<Ammler>else it would be better, if you have more smaller trains. (for raiting)
11:55<joachim>of course, there has to be huge amounts of goods available
11:55<joachim>or feeders
11:56<Brianetta>Very long coal trains look pretty good if you use a combination of Blunck's null station tiles and the industrial coal loader. Put the coal loader in the middle of the station, and have the train protrude significantly from each end on the invisible parts.
11:56<Brianetta>If you have several platforms, you can mix up the lengths of the invisible protrusions
11:56<Brianetta>It looks quite real at a glance

13:39<@peter1138>I'd like to, not necessarily this way, though.
13:39<@peter1138>My theory is destinations only need to be updated if orders are changed.

13:47<@peter1138>I'd also like to see destinations for all cargo types.
13:47<@peter1138>All optional, of course.
13:47<Celestar>peter1138: your theory is congruent with my theory
13:47<Celestar>peter1138: and it does work.
13:47<@peter1138>Different methods of selecting destination depending on the cargo's behaviour (TE_ enum)
13:47<Celestar>peter1138: I've got to go, can we resume this tomorrow? :D
13:48<planetmaker>[19:47] <peter1138> All optional, of course. <--- please! Or it would be worse than with stockpiling and rough economy and ECS :)

13:53<@peter1138>Haha!
13:53<planetmaker>?
13:54<@peter1138>The AI has built a rail bridge all the way through a town over a road.
13:54<@peter1138>Quite a nice solution, actually.
13:54<fjb>Never thought the ai would be smart enough.
13:54<@peter1138>Well, it's shame about the weird loops either side of it...
13:55<fjb>Noai branch... :-)
13:55<fjb>It would be great to have bus stops at the road under the bridge. *hint*
13:56<planetmaker>indeed.
13:56<planetmaker>(I meant the solution of the AI)
13:56<+glx>fjb: that would allow all stations under bridge
13:57<+glx>even airports
13:57<planetmaker>hehe :)
13:57<Yorick>heh, 0.6.2-RC1 is actually network-compatible with 0.6.1
13:57<fjb>Runway under a bridge... why not? :-)
13:57<planetmaker>hm.... I've seen the reverse: runway as a bridge... :)
13:58<fjb>That is really not that unusual.
13:58<planetmaker>yeah.
13:59<@peter1138>glx: All? My existing patch already allows different types and heights...
13:59<+glx>checking bounding boxes?
14:00<Yorick>I think some kind of newgrf parameter
14:04<blathijs>Yorick: Is it really compatible? Or does it just not desync within the first few seconds? :-_
14:04<blathijs>s/_/)/
14:05<Yorick>blathijs: I've been on a server for over an hour
14:05<Yorick>so it is quite compatible
14:05<blathijs>With a hacked client that changes the version number?
14:06<Yorick>no
14:06<Yorick>with the -n argument ;)
14:06<Yorick>it is only disabled gui-wise
14:06<blathijs>hmm, somehow I think that's a flaw in our code :-p
14:07<Yorick>no it isn't
14:07<Yorick>it doesn't even know the servers revision
14:07<Yorick>it doesn't go for udp
14:07<Yorick>and you cannot get tge revision with tcp
14:07<Yorick>the*
14:07<blathijs>Then that's another flaw :-p
14:07<Rubidium>Yorick: how extensively have you tested it?
14:08<+glx>Yorick: savegames are stable in any branch
14:08<Rubidium>I reckon I can cause a desync pretty quickly
14:08<Yorick>Rubidium: just joined a server...
14:08<Yorick>I do not care about your abilities
14:08<Yorick>it works under normal conditions
14:08<+glx>so the client can load it, but commands may do different things
14:08<Yorick>I've had 0 desyncs so far
14:09<Rubidium>Yorick: now let an RV run to a non-drive through road stop and when it enters send it to the depot
14:10<Rubidium>and there's some signal state updates that can cause desyncs, also easily causing a desync
14:14<blathijs>Yorick: Hmm, from looking at the changelog, it seems that they should indeed be pretty compatible, as long as you don't trigger any of the bugs fixed in 0.6.2
14:16<@peter1138>glx: No, a new GRF property.
14:17<@peter1138>Which defaults to not allowing a bridge.

14:22<Yorick>blathijs: I would love it if you fixed the implementation (revision in tcp packet, clientid in command-packet)
14:22<fjb>A place where the one way sign is nedded is not always a safe waiting point.
14:23<@peter1138>Ah, for YAPP. Yes, I've needed that before.
14:24<blathijs>Yorick: Actually, it seems the code is already there, just disabled by default :-)
14:25<Yorick>what?
14:25<Yorick>how do you mean?
14:25<Rubidium>why clientid in the command packet?
14:26<joachim>i thought a one-way yapp signal wasn't a safe waiting point for opposing trains
14:26<Yorick>Rubidium: why not?
14:26<Rubidium>cause it's pointless to add it?
14:26<Yorick>is it?
14:26<blathijs>The socket determines which client sent the packet, right?
14:26<Yorick>you can't know it client-side
14:26<blathijs>Ie, you can't send packets for more than 1 client over a single socket?
14:27<Rubidium>it is as blathijs says
14:27<Yorick>I mean server->client
14:27<blathijs>Ah
14:27<blathijs>Do you need to know the client id clientside then?
14:27<Yorick>I would like to
14:28<@peter1138>joachim, yes but we'd like one that isn't a safe point for any direction.
14:28<joachim>ok
14:29<joachim>ah
14:29<joachim>that would be nice for single tracks :)
14:29<blathijs>Yorick: Why?
14:29<Yorick>for administrating purposes
14:29<joachim>or would it
14:30<joachim>depends on the implementation
14:30<Yorick>I think it's a serious defacement for a logger if it doesnt know what client it came from
14:30<Ammler>peter1138: isn't that the same as no signal?
14:31<ln>http://vaunut.org/sivukuvat/50518.jpg
14:31<joachim>it should disallow one direction, Ammler
14:31<Ammler>ah
14:31<Ammler>but not allow stopping
14:31<joachim>right
14:32<Yorick>blathijs: where is that functionality with revisions?
14:32<blathijs>Yorick: look for WITH_REV
14:32<joachim>ln: where's that?
14:33<Yorick>blathijs: yeah, but that's server-side
14:33<joachim>and what's that :)
14:33<Rubidium>Yorick: so?
14:33<Rubidium>what's the point with it being server side?
14:33<blathijs>Yorick: So the clients sends its revision, and the server denies everyone with a different rev
14:33<Yorick>I would like to know the server-revision clientside
14:33<ln>joachim: Seinäjoki
14:33<joachim>finland?
14:33<ln>yeah
14:34<blathijs>Yorick: Ah, then you should use an UDP query :-p
14:34<joachim>no el rails?
14:34<Yorick>blathijs: I could still just adapt my revision to the server revision using that udp packet
14:34<blathijs>Yorick: Yeah, it is, by definition, not fool proof
14:34<blathijs>Yorick: But it's mainly to prevent people from making mistakes, not anything else
14:35<ln>joachim: not right there. if you have a map nearby, that picture is from somewhere between Seinäjoki and Vaasa, which doesn't have elrails.
14:35<Yorick>blathijs: it's clear that I do not make a mistake if I use that -n command

14:45<blathijs>Yorick: Can you give an example of those administration purpose for the client id, btw?
14:45<Eddi|zuHause2>fjb: imho that kind of functionality should be put into waypoints

14:46<fjb>Eddi|zuHause2: We need diagonal waypoints then.
14:46<Eddi|zuHause2>fjb: different issue ;)
14:46<Eddi|zuHause2>signals are already way too overloaded with functionality
14:46<fjb>And waypoints that are smaller.

14:50<CIA-3>OpenTTD: rubidium * r13776 /trunk/src/network/network_server.cpp: -Fix: some revision checking code was unintentionally disabled.
14:50<blathijs>Ah, when you have multiple clients per company?
14:50<Yorick>yes
14:50<Yorick>RUBIDIUM!
14:51<blathijs>Ah, then it makes a bit more sense to send a client id in addition to a player id :-)
14:51<Rubidium>but... why would a client need to do the logging?
14:51<blathijs>Or there should be an extra abstraction, company id
14:51<Yorick>because a server needs to be patched
14:52<Rubidium>I reckon that a server has more chance of actually staying in game when bad things happen than any client
14:52<blathijs>ie, client id <1-to-1> player id <many to one> company id
14:52<Rubidium>playerid == companyid
14:52<blathijs>anyhow, /me is off to cleaning
14:52<SmatZ>why do you need that? for malicious user, changing client_id is matter of one second
14:53<Yorick>are you really doing everything in your path to stop me from doing nice things?
14:53<SmatZ>or you can even put client_id = Random() on game start
14:53<Yorick>SmatZ: if you are the server...
14:53<blathijs>Rubidium: Currently yes, but a many-to-one between client and player is weird. Multiple players have one company, not multiple clients controlling one player (IMO, but this is mostly conceptual)
14:53<Yorick>you can't change the client_id on the server
14:54<Rubidium>blathijs: the problem is that "player" is wrongly named
14:54<Yorick>not from ttd-scope
14:54<SmatZ>well, I think it wouldn't hurt to send client number instead of my_cmd ...
14:54<Rubidium>a "player" in OpenTTD's sense is a "company"
14:54<blathijs>Rubidium: Yeah, that's actually even better. Ie, rename player to company and client to player :-)
14:55<blathijs>And leave out client (which corresponds to having a 1-to-1 relation, which is usually pointless anyway)
14:55<SmatZ>hehe changing naming scheme will cause even more mess
14:55<Yorick>Rubidium: are you doing everything in your path to stop me from doing some nice things?
14:56<SmatZ>so you have to say "player in the new meaning of that word"
14:56<blathijs>SmatZ: That's only temporary :-)
14:56<Rubidium>Yorick: no
14:56<blathijs>Yorick: Nobody is really stopping you from doing anything
14:57<blathijs>Yorick: We're just trying understand what you want to do and why
14:57<Rubidium>but I'm trying to keep the bug count due to stupid users joining a server with a wrong revision low
14:57<blathijs>Yorick: And as the engineers we've been educated to be, we provide feedback :-)
14:57<blathijs>And for the revision thing, feel free to hack your client to send a different revision number :-p
14:57<Rubidium>never directly implement what an user wants because the user is usually wrong in how to implement something
14:58<Yorick>Rubidium: well they can't JUST do that...
14:58<SmatZ>"stupid users" don't know command line
14:58<Rubidium>SmatZ: true

14:59<Yorick>do they?
14:59<Yorick>no, they do not?

15:24<blathijs>Yorick: I would say that having a special of "I don't have a version and I am not a real player" could be added?
15:25<Yorick>blathijs: you're the dev...
15:25<@peter1138>Not really worth it just for Yorick's request.
15:25<Yorick>> I could use UDP...but it COULD fail delivering packets, and timeout
15:25<@peter1138>It could. Tough.
15:25<Rubidium>world news: TCP can too!
15:25<@peter1138>I'm sure you can figure out how to do retries.
15:26<joachim>Rubidium: tcp never fails!
15:26<Rubidium>only TCP timeouts could take as long as 2 hours
15:26<joachim>:P
15:26<Yorick>^^
15:26<joachim>it has backup pigeons
15:27<Eddi|zuHause2>TCP timeouts could as well be set to 2 years ;)
15:27<Yorick><blathijs>Yorick: I would say that having a special of "I don't have a version and I am not a real player" could be added? <-- didn't norev000 do that?

16:21<joachim>if the latter wasn't a disaster, reliablity should affect the probability of it.. and affect possible passengers
16:21<joachim>could make air travel interesting :)
16:21<Eddi|zuHause2>a crash immediately sets all nearby ratings to 0
16:22<Eddi|zuHause2>that'll affect passenger numbers nicely :p

16:33<+glx>he is
16:34<+glx>and the limit comes from packet size
16:34<Ammler>just a nice number, isn't
16:34<blathijs>glx: Because the entire client list must fit in a UPD packet?
16:35<+glx>yes
16:35<Ammler>but that limit is around 12
16:36<blathijs>Huh?
16:36<Ammler>or did he already fix it?
16:36<Ammler>!s/fix/change/
16:36<Eddi|zuHause2>Ammler: not when you put the entire client list in an extra package
16:37<Ammler>that is what dih is working on, afaik...
16:38<Ammler>but then the limits are other number then 55, that was "just" imagination
16:38<Ammler>the client list was disabled there for wwottdgd.
16:41<Yorick>gx: it does not need that anymore
16:42<blathijs>I think you could also just list the first so many clients and then end with "and more"
16:42<Yorick>the udp packet with the client list got removed

16:42<blathijs>Since the UDP client list is only informational

16:42<Ammler>blathijs: that was "his" first idea... (after wwottdgd/1)
16:42<Yorick>according to Rubidium, he could crash any server with it
16:43<Rubidium>any unpassworded server with no passworded companies
16:43<Rubidium>and I didn't remove the packet, just the client information
16:43<blathijs>ie, make the data per-client a lot less?
16:43<Yorick>^^
16:44<blathijs>And crashing a server by spawning infinite connections? :-)
16:44<Rubidium>so only 5 characters per client?
16:44<Yorick>only a part of the name would fit there
16:44<Rubidium>i.e. only the first 4 characters of the player names
16:45<Yorick>heh, forgot the \0
16:45<blathijs>Rubidium: And the client id I guess?
16:45<Ammler>maybe a idea for "cleaning" the server list :P
16:45<Rubidium>client ids aren't sent in the udp packet
16:46<blathijs>Rubidium: Then what is the fifth byte? Trailing 0?
16:46<Yorick>yes
16:46<Rubidium>yup
16:46<Yorick>that is currently the last byte of every string, I think
16:46<blathijs>Couldn't that be simply removed? Ie, always send 5 characters (and stuff with
16:46<blathijs>\0 if less than 5 characters)
16:46<blathijs>not that it matters mutch
16:46<Rubidium>well, I just removed the player names from it
16:46<Rubidium>which solves the problem too without complexifying stuff
16:47<blathijs>but you left in the first 4 characters? OR was that previously?
16:47<Rubidium>no, previously it send the complete name
16:47<Rubidium>and I just removed sending that
16:48<blathijs>Why do you still send the first 4 chars? So people can guess a little whos is playing on a server before joining?
16:48<Rubidium>blathijs: I don't send that
16:48<Rubidium>it was meant metaphorically
16:48<Rubidium>it just sends company info and nothing about the players
16:49<blathijs>Ah
16:49<blathijs>Makes sense :-)
16:49<Yorick>yet wouldn't it be possible to make that a tcp packet?
16:49<Rubidium>previously it sent up to 100 something bytes per company and up to 80 bytes per client
16:49<Rubidium>Yorick: yes, not going to happen though
16:50<Yorick>why not?
16:50<Rubidium>as it is pointless
16:50<Yorick>is it?
16:50<Rubidium>yes
16:50<Yorick>could you explain?
16:50<Rubidium>network_server.cpp:64 and further would explain it I guess
16:51<Yorick>does that contain the clients?
16:53<Yorick>and I don't mean a string by that
16:53<Rubidium>then what do you mean?
16:53<Yorick>a client_id+name for every client

18:00<Eddi|zuHause2>MB wanted to make his own ECS implementation
18:01<fjb>MB wants to many things. Somebody should send him a lot of time.

21:29<fjb>dasy2k1: That never happened to me. Did you apply the patch to trunk and compile it yourself or did you use one of that strange patch packs out there?
21:29<Eddi|zuHause3>dasy2k1: did you mix normal and "advanced" signals?
21:29<Eddi|zuHause3>or did you even hit the "ignore signal" button?

21:31<rortom>got the openttd forked?
21:31<rortom>in the past i mean?
21:31<dasy2k1>fjb: using the rrcp patch pack, and no mix and no ignores
21:31<+glx>I'm not aware of any fork
21:32<Digitalfox>Wow so much hate from MB against Open :(
21:33<rortom>i thought there was one ...
21:33<fjb>dasy2k1: The new PBS signals are known to not work in any of that big patch packs.
21:33<Digitalfox>While I used a online translator, much was nice translated, so what a hate guy..
21:33<rortom>@glx: you want to continue to fix some protocol with the bot?
21:33<+glx>hmm no :)
21:33<fjb>Digitalfox: It is really sad.
21:33<rortom>good :)
21:34<Eddi|zuHause3>i don't read "hate" out of his posts there...
21:34<Digitalfox>fjb but I don't get why.. I mean patch isn't dead or will die because of open, also no one forces him to use it.. So why does he hets so angry about open..
21:35<Digitalfox>*gets
21:35<fjb>But he strongly dislikes the OpenTTD project.
21:35<Eddi|zuHause3>he has some more or less valid arguments
21:35<Digitalfox>Eddi|zuHause3 please, you know very well the feeling mb has for open
21:36<Digitalfox>Eddi|zuHause3 yes he may have some valid arguments, but the way he express them, please that's ....
21:36<fjb>I gues he feels betrayed. He once stated the he gave most of the ideas how to extend TTD too the TTDP team. Now OpenTTD implemented the thing he came up with.
21:36<Eddi|zuHause3>it's a "which is better?" discussion... it can only be a flamewar...
21:38<Eddi|zuHause3>fjb: a) you can't patent an idea, and b) TTDP is open source, everybody can take it and do what he wants with the features
21:38<fjb>And OpenTTD is not implementing everything as he would like it to be implemented.
21:38<dasy2k1>hmm cant repeat the crash
21:38<fjb>Eddi|zuHause3: Don't tell me. MB stated that once.
21:39<fjb>dasy2k1: The patchpack you are using is broken.
21:39<Digitalfox>The thing is, IMHO I now see old patch artists producing graphics for open, and I guess MB never will accept that..
21:39<dasy2k1>fjb: in what way
21:40<DaleStan>dasy2k1: In whatever way is necessary to cause that behaviour.
21:40<Digitalfox>It's like NewGRF is a thing of patch and open can't have NewGRF just for it..
21:40<fjb>dasy2k1: YAPP (the new PBS signals) are not working as expected, and not working as trunk with only the YAPP patch.
21:40<Digitalfox>So yeah I think he is more pissed than ever, because of all the stuff that has been done in Open graphics section..

21:41<Digitalfox>Also Zephryis posting a set on patch graphics section that doesn't work in patch.. lol I imagine what MB must have felt..
21:41<dasy2k1>well i found out what had caused my crash
21:41<DaleStan>It's like NewGRF is a thing of patch and open can't have NewGRF just for it.. <-- Remind me again how many times people have tried to convince the Open devs to choose a format other than GRF/NFO?
21:41<Digitalfox>But anyway this is very of topic.. So have a nice night everybody
21:42<fjb>But the other artists are not working for OpenTTD alone, they are working for both projects. And even the developer teams of both projects are working together.
21:42<Eddi|zuHause3>DaleStan: XML!!11!!!1einundelfzig
21:42<DaleStan>Not that I ever thought it was a good idea. Nor that I ever expected it to work.
21:43<dasy2k1>i had 2 signals pointing the wrong way so there was no protection for a train leaving the station as one was comming in
21:43<fjb>I only say that self modifying code is a very bad idea.
21:44<fjb>dasy2k1: Did you modify the signals while the trains were in that signal block?
21:44<Eddi|zuHause3>fjb: you really don't want to know what some compilers could make of your code :p
21:44<+glx>self modifying code is nice (I used that on my TI85)
21:44<Digitalfox>DaleStan IMHO if when Newgrf support was first thought if should be implemented in open and there was someone with a better idea of a new format, yes I think it could had been a good idea.. But now I don't think it would be a good idea..
21:44<dasy2k1>possably i may have done, cant remember
21:45<fjb>Selfmodifying code makes the construction of a compiler diffiicult.
21:45<DaleStan>Digitalfox: No, it was never a good idea. Choosing a different format would have meant willfully breaking with all the existent graphics sets.
21:46<DaleStan>fjb: NASM doesn't seem to have much trouble turning the TTDPatch code into object files. :p
21:46<Digitalfox>DaleStan don't get me wrong I'm not saying theres a problem with NewGRF presently and how it works.. I just mean a format easier to work with..
21:46<dasy2k1>BIngo repeated my crash
21:46<dasy2k1>without modifying signals
21:47<Eddi|zuHause3>fjb: why? in the compiler you can always choose to not use that feature
21:48<Eddi|zuHause3>or only use the feature in very limited ways (in this case, variable [parameter] assignment)
21:48<fjb>DaleStan: NASM is just an assambler. And I didn't speak about you assembler code, I spoke about some selfmodifying nfo actions.
21:48<Eddi|zuHause3>NFO is basically an assembler
21:48<Lakie>Not really...
21:48<+glx>fjb: it's like a static variable
21:48<DaleStan>Oh, never mind then.
21:48<DaleStan><Eddi|zuHause3> NFO is basically an assembler <-- If that.
21:49<fjb>NFO is machine language. But the selfmodifying nature of some actions makes it harder to write a compiler for an higher level language which produces nfo code.
21:50<Eddi|zuHause3>fjb: i could prove you wrong, but i have not enough time
21:50<+glx>you're not forced to use this action
21:51<fjb>glx: How do you read the options of the grf without using selfmodifying code?
21:51<Eddi|zuHause3>really, the only place you can sensefully use that action is expressions with variables, and there you can do some basic code layouts that model it
21:52<fjb>Eddi|zuHause3: Ofcourse you can do things like that. But that makes making the compiler more difficult. You can do almost everything with enough time.
21:53-!-Digitalfox [~Digitalfo@bl7-183-195.dsl.telepac.pt] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
21:54<Eddi|zuHause3>that is hardly a problem at all [when speaking of a high level language like NDL]
21:55<dasy2k1>http://tinyurl.com/6o76bk shows the problem, train 1 will reach the end of the line and reverse not caring that train 2 has allready blocked the path
21:55<+glx>grf parameters don't need self modifying code, but they can be used when modifying other actions
21:55<fjb>NDL is your language that gets translated to NFO?
21:55<DaleStan>As long as it's a true compiler, as opposed to an assembler, there's no problem not with just failing to tell the compiler that action 6 exists.

21:56<dasy2k1>ok
21:56<Eddi|zuHause3>fjb: there's a forum thread somewhere
21:58<fjb>Eddi|zuHause3: And the compiler is in a fully working state so that it can be used to develop full featured GRFs?
21:58<Eddi|zuHause3>fjb: no, as explained in the thread the compiler can generate action 0 and action 1/2/3
21:58<fjb>And how do you acces the GRF parameters without using action 6?
21:58<+glx>it's possible to have a grf working the same without action 6, it just needs more actions
21:59<Eddi|zuHause3>i started to add varaction2 support, but i ran out of time
21:59<+glx>fjb: action 7, 9, D, varaction 2
22:00<DaleStan>Varaction 2 variable 7F, specifically.
22:00<Eddi|zuHause3>also, the compiler can only handle trains (feature 0), but that is rather trivial to extend
22:01<fjb>Thank you. i will have a closer look to that actions.
22:02<dasy2k1>is there a subversion command for regressing to a version?

22:11<dasy2k1>i will put it in the patchpack thread as a bug
22:11<fjb>dasy2k1: That is why I'm calling the patchpack broken.
22:11<+glx>rortom: maybe some bugs (some fixed in 0.6.2-RC1)
22:11<Eddi|zuHause3>fjb: it's a very long running and occasionally recurring discussion to use XML as a modding format instead of GRF
22:12<fjb>XML is a bad idea if you have to type the code by hand...
22:12<Eddi|zuHause3>exactly :p
22:12<fjb>People demanding XML never for that purpose never used it.
22:12<+glx>better write NFO than XML :)
22:13<fjb>Hm, it's almost on the same level...
22:13<+glx>you need to type a lot much in XML
22:13<fjb>It can have strange effects on people...

22:16<+glx>with a "sane" code style NFO is not hard to read or write
22:17<fjb>Surly you can get used to it when coding NFO regularly. But it is hard for somebody occasionally doing that.
22:18<+glx>I don't code NFO often, but I'm able to write test grfs when I need one
22:19<fjb>And no bigger software project gets done typing hex codes today. At least some kind of assembler is used.
22:19<DaleStan>*rummage*
22:19<DaleStan><peter1138> there is a reason it's not in xml
22:19<DaleStan><peter1138> anyone who takes the time to fully understand the system so they can write an xml structure realises it's not worth it
22:19<fjb>DaleStan: :-)
22:20<fjb>XML has its uses, but not as a programming language.
22:20<+glx>and that's true for most xxx->XML stuff
22:22<fjb>I wouldn't say that. You can do really nice things with XML. But as always you have to use the right tool at the right time.
22:23<+glx>yes for sharing datas it's nice
22:25<+glx>but only for new stuff (if an old stuff uses a working "binary" format to share data, I don't see the need to "upgrade" it to xml)
22:26<fjb>Or for describing documents. Or as a transfer fomat from one format into another.
22:27<+glx>that reminds me people suggesting to use xml for openttd savegames :)
22:28<fjb>Yeah, that would make savegame hacking much easier. Updating all your vehicles without starting the game. :-)
22:29<+glx>yeah imagine a 2048*2048 network savegame to send to clients ;)
22:31<+glx>even compressed, the xml format will increase the size
22:31<fjb>Oh, that is not really a problem. You can easily shorten the identifiers on the fly using XSLT...
22:31<fjb>:-)
22:32<fjb>Not that that approach would be really usefull...
22:32<+glx>but as xml is a text format, a 32bits integer will use way more space
22:33<fjb>Just express them as hex codes. :-)
22:33<+glx>even that way you double the size
22:33<+glx>1 byte -> 2 chars
22:34<rortom>mhm
22:34<fjb>Or BCD.
22:34<rortom>who wrote the first ottd MP code?
22:34<+glx>it's pre-r1 but I think TB did
22:35<rortom>ok, thx
22:35<rortom>we are thinking of going to use raknet for RoR :\
22:38<fjb>Then be sure not to put RoR under GPL...
22:42<rortom>why?
22:43<rortom>i thought the license is fine?

22:44<fjb>GPL extends to everything you are linking to your prject.
22:45<fjb>And raknet has its own license. That would get replaced by the GPL. I don't think the licence of raknet allows that.
22:46<rortom>http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/2.5/
22:46<+glx>raknet has many licences it seems :)
22:46<rortom>yes the one above and a commercial one
22:47<fjb>Does it also have the GPL? I didn't see that on their website.
22:47<+glx>no gpl
22:47<rortom>we are still searching a fitting license for RoR :/
22:48*glx goes to sleep
22:48<+glx>night all
22:48<fjb>Good idea.
22:48<rortom>gn8
22:48<fjb>glx: Good night.
