04:04<planetmaker:#openttd>moin dihedral
04:04<Forked:#openttd>Goooood morning openttd community
04:04<dihedral:#openttd>good morning Forked :-P
04:05<planetmaker:#openttd>g'morning Forked
04:05<Forked:#openttd>now that it's a good morning, but at least it's morning :\
04:05<dihedral:#openttd>not or now?
04:05<Forked:#openttd>not that it's a good day for spelling things either :7
04:11<dihedral:#openttd>pm >
04:12<planetmaker:#openttd>quite accurate, if you ask me :P
04:12<dihedral:#openttd>perhaps i should add: 'i am just a flourist, selling flowers others cut down for me, and telling people how best to take care of their purchased flowers'
04:12*Forked:#openttd takes a dump in mentioned garden
04:12<Forked:#openttd> make stuff grow better!
04:13<dihedral:#openttd>Forked, did you parents help you grow that way too? :-P
04:14<Forked:#openttd>fed me mcdonalds food :\
04:14<Forked:#openttd>so pretty much, yep :p
04:15<Forked:#openttd>joke though, I have excellent parents :)

04:43<planetmaker:#openttd>Eddi|zuHause: just register as translator :)
04:43<planetmaker:#openttd>I think it doesn't hurt. And if there are more people who occasionally fix a small thing, chances are much higher that the language will be up to date :)
04:44<planetmaker:#openttd>And logging into the translator screen, fixing a single string or two - no big deal and not much one has to learn actually.
04:46<planetmaker:#openttd>Doesn't take more time than posting it in the forums actually. So... come on :)
04:50<dihedral:#openttd> <- hehe
04:50<dihedral:#openttd>"if you have two apples, and someone gives you another one, how many apples do you have?" <- does not work with "carrot"
04:51<planetmaker:#openttd>well... just don't start another flame war...
04:51<TrueBrain:#openttd>that sounds like a good plan indeed ;)
04:52<planetmaker:#openttd>hi TrueBrain :)
04:52<TrueBrain:#openttd>hi planetmaker
04:52<dihedral:#openttd>planetmaker, i was thinking about replying, but i will not
04:53<dihedral:#openttd>i'll let others do that if they feel like it :-P
04:53<planetmaker:#openttd>good :)
04:53<TrueBrain:#openttd>not replying at all seems a better method
04:53<dihedral:#openttd>i've had my fun already
04:53<planetmaker:#openttd>yep, more often than not, TrueBrain :)
04:53<dihedral:#openttd>i am quite chuffed of my post anyway :-D
04:53<TrueBrain:#openttd>I have to admit, yours was funny dihedral :p
04:54<TrueBrain:#openttd>but clearly he doesn't get it ..
04:54<planetmaker:#openttd>nope, he doesn't :P
04:54<planetmaker:#openttd>but that's his problem then.
04:54<TrueBrain:#openttd>some people, which did not yet reach the right age, don't know when to just stop talking ;)
04:54<planetmaker:#openttd>Most people will get it - and that's what's more important: the audience :)
04:55<TrueBrain:#openttd>whoho, WrightAI is downloaded 1000+ times on BaNaNaS! :)
04:55<dihedral:#openttd>i also love the "are you comparing apples with carrot?"
04:55<@petern:#openttd>opengfx got downloaded about 30 times by me testing it :p
04:55<dihedral:#openttd>sure - i compare a bunch of apples with a single carrot :-D
04:55*TrueBrain:#openttd substracts 30 from the download number ... :p
04:56<@Rubidium:#openttd>TrueBrain: last time I looked it hadn't reached 1000 yet
04:57<TrueBrain:#openttd>Rubidium: and now it did .. sigh ..
04:57<TrueBrain:#openttd>what kind of comment is that? :p
04:57<planetmaker:#openttd>:) It clutters the map with airports... :P
04:57<@Rubidium:#openttd>only +13 since the last time I looked, which was like a few days ago
04:57<TrueBrain:#openttd>so? 1000+ is a nice number, me thinks
04:57<TrueBrain:#openttd>now stop spoiling the moment
04:58<planetmaker:#openttd>I'm always amazed how often still 0.6.3 is downloaded on a daily basis...
04:58<TrueBrain:#openttd>people LOVE OpenTTD :)
04:58<planetmaker:#openttd>yep. which is good so :)
04:59<planetmaker:#openttd>well... I guess we wouldn't be talking here, if we didn't :P
05:00<@Rubidium:#openttd>don't forget to add the ~250 downloads a day from SF ;)
05:00<TrueBrain:#openttd>SF sucks
05:00<TrueBrain:#openttd>(just a random comment)
05:00<@Rubidium:#openttd>oh yes it does
05:01<planetmaker:#openttd>he. openttd on SF isn't on my radar screen :P
05:01-!-Mortal [~mortal@] has joined #openttd
05:02<@petern:#openttd>oh, we still put releases on sf?
05:02<dihedral:#openttd>petern, last time was about a year ago.... which still was 0.6.3 :-D
05:02<@Rubidium:#openttd>petern: yeah, got a nice script that does most of the work
05:03<planetmaker:#openttd>he :)
05:03<@Rubidium:#openttd>and then you have to manually add them all and I can't get bothered to set the OS/architecture/file type
05:03<planetmaker:#openttd>let computers do the work, if you can. Always a good plan
05:07<@Rubidium:#openttd>and the number of downloads from SF dropped by a factor 8-10
05:09<TrueBrain:#openttd>and our outgoing bandwidth increased :p
05:09<@petern:#openttd>i can mirror, you know :p
05:10<TrueBrain:#openttd>we can still grow 4 times our current size ;)
05:10<@petern:#openttd>bandwidth costs me nothing, however
05:10<TrueBrain:#openttd>petern: but: 100 GiB space, rsync access, http/ftp read access, and I need the country it is located ;)
05:11<dihedral:#openttd>we dont have the disc space, but we have the bandwidth
05:11<TrueBrain:#openttd>oh, and if you want to mirror the private stuff, a seperate rsync access with no http/ftp read ;) (private stuff as in: svn backup)
05:13<CIA-1:#openttd>OpenTTD: rubidium * r15455 /trunk/src/openttd.cpp: -Fix: font autodetection didn't occur when directly loading a game via e.g. -g.

05:23-!-mortal` [~mortal@] has joined #openttd
05:25<dihedral:#openttd>TrueBrain, the questions would more be if you trusted us that much
05:25<TrueBrain:#openttd>dihedral: svn is public anyway
05:25<dihedral:#openttd>i thought some parts were not
05:26<TrueBrain:#openttd>svn is completely public
05:26<TrueBrain:#openttd>just no write access
05:26<dihedral:#openttd>of course not :-P
05:26<dihedral:#openttd>we can definately mirror that if you want
05:27<dihedral:#openttd>you could even use svnsync for that!
05:27<dihedral:#openttd>why not?
05:27<TrueBrain:#openttd>and we have no interest in a private sync only ..
05:27<@petern:#openttd>so yeah, my server is in the UK...
05:28<dihedral:#openttd>TrueBrain, what do you mean with a 'private' sync only?
05:28<TrueBrain:#openttd>dihedral: that I personally am more interested in binaries mirroring
05:28<@petern:#openttd>hmm, vservers don't have virtual drives, do they?
05:28<@petern:#openttd>so i could set up a vserver...
05:28<TrueBrain:#openttd>petern: they do
05:28<TrueBrain:#openttd>but using LVM is easier
05:29<dihedral:#openttd>depending on the virtualisation software, you can setup either
05:29<@petern:#openttd>what i saw was more like a chroot filesystem
05:29<@petern:#openttd>dihedral: vserver is a specific virtualisation software
05:29<TrueBrain:#openttd>very specific even ;)
05:29<TrueBrain:#openttd>petern: well, 'virtual' might be a bit much to call it, but you can enable hard quota on a drive which vserver obeys
05:30<TrueBrain:#openttd>but I only use LVM :)
05:30<@petern:#openttd>what i mean is i don't need to allocate 100GB and then find only a small bit of it is used :p
05:30-!-el_en [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:30<TrueBrain:#openttd>just reduced the binaries from 21 GiB to 13 GiB .. lol :)
05:30<@petern:#openttd>the filesystem would have to sit on my /home
05:30<TrueBrain:#openttd>petern: so quota ;)
05:30-!-Mortal [~mortal@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:33<dihedral:#openttd>stables only :-P
05:34<TrueBrain:#openttd>every night it grows with 150 MiB, if there are no branches and such ..
05:34<dihedral:#openttd>stables onlyl and nightlies for the past week
05:35<TrueBrain:#openttd>a bit more is kept
05:36<dihedral:#openttd> <- hihi
05:37<dihedral:#openttd>TrueBrain, but who sais it would have to be kept on the mirror?
05:37<TrueBrain:#openttd>I do
05:37<dihedral:#openttd>besides - how often does someone come along and download some 2 month old nightly
05:37<TrueBrain:#openttd>leave the policy decisions to us ;)
05:37<@Rubidium:#openttd>dihedral: how often does someone come along and download a more than 1 week old nightly?
05:38<dihedral:#openttd>it would defeat the purpose
05:38<@Rubidium:#openttd>hmm... let me guess... OpenTTDcoop starts a new map every few days, right?
05:38<dihedral:#openttd>dont know how often they have a new game
05:39<@petern:#openttd>hmm, okay, a vserver guide that mentions woody... not good :p
05:39<dihedral:#openttd>that was never a part i really payed attention to :-P
05:39<TrueBrain:#openttd>petern: lol!
05:39<dihedral:#openttd>petern, better than potato :-P
05:40<TrueBrain:#openttd>dihedral: so can I suggest not to make any suggestions how long we should keep things around? :)
05:40*petern:#openttd ponders a name for the vserver
05:40<TrueBrain:#openttd>petern: 'openttd'

05:42<TrueBrain:#openttd>weird domain name :p
05:42<@petern:#openttd>does it matter what OS? if not i'll have etch on it
05:42<dihedral:#openttd>TrueBrain, please post suggestions to the suggestion forum :-D
05:42<CIA-1:#openttd>OpenTTD: rubidium * r15456 /trunk/src/strgen/strgen.cpp: -Fix(ish): add strgen support to add 'directional formatting codes', so one can guide the bidirectional rendering a bit better.
05:42<TrueBrain:#openttd>petern: all I require is rsync access, and ftp/http read access :)
05:43<@petern:#openttd>ftp :o
05:43<TrueBrain:#openttd>mirrors in generally carry both, yes :)
05:43<dihedral:#openttd>the beauty of it
05:43<@petern:#openttd>okay, it needs vserver for ftp ;p
05:43<@petern:#openttd>although it's handy to keep it separate anyway
05:43<TrueBrain:#openttd> and
05:44<@petern:#openttd>heh, debian and ubuntu mirror
05:44<TrueBrain:#openttd>the http just looks much more pretty!!! :)
05:47<TrueBrain:#openttd>petern: also a fedora mirror :p
05:47<Tefad:#openttd>gentoo mirror? oh wait
05:50<Tefad:#openttd>no binaries
05:50<TrueBrain:#openttd>damn, google is slow again ..
05:52<@petern:#openttd>vserver openttd enter
05:52<@petern:#openttd>woo :D
05:52<TrueBrain:#openttd>concratz :p
05:52<@petern:#openttd>do you need rsync over ssh or plain rsync?
05:53<TrueBrain:#openttd>over ssh please :)
05:53<TrueBrain:#openttd>let me find you the public key for it ..

06:26-!-Mortal [~mortal@] has joined #openttd
06:29<@petern:#openttd>hmm, right
06:31<planetmaker:#openttd>[11:38] <Rubidium> hmm... let me guess... OpenTTDcoop starts a new map every few days, right? <-- well, on average I'd say once a week we start a new game
06:32<planetmaker:#openttd>so far we didn't have a problem with obtaining the nightly the server runs - at least not I know of :)
06:32<planetmaker:#openttd>But one week span might just be a tad too short
06:32-!-mortal` [~mortal@] has joined #openttd
06:33-!-Mucht [~Martin@] has joined #openttd
06:33<TrueBrain:#openttd>planetmaker: it is 60 days ;)
06:33<planetmaker:#openttd>that's certainly sufficient.
06:33<planetmaker:#openttd>If we don't finish a game in 60 days something is seriously flawed :P
06:33<TrueBrain:#openttd>(minimal value, mostly it is a bit longer)
06:33<dihedral:#openttd>so now you allow mirrors to only keep nightlies for 60 days?
06:34-!-ecke [~ecke@] has quit [Quit: ecke]
06:34<planetmaker:#openttd>dihedral: mirror means to be a mirror - not a dump ;)
06:34<dihedral:#openttd>planetmaker, TrueBrain has his own vision ;-)
06:34<TrueBrain:#openttd>no, planetmaker says it correct
06:34<@petern:#openttd>the mirrors go back to 2004 ;p
06:35<dihedral:#openttd>planetmaker, also, when you stand a dump in front of the mirror ......
06:35<planetmaker:#openttd>that's another issue. But the case when I do :P
06:35<dihedral:#openttd>the glass shatters
06:35<planetmaker:#openttd>having a shower before solves the issue ;)
06:35<planetmaker:#openttd>mirror becomes opaque :P
06:36<planetmaker:#openttd>or whatever. dued.

07:26<Swallow:#openttd>Is there a way to change / fix base costs in a running game?
07:26-!-worldemar [~world@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:27<Ammler:#openttd>Swallow: over scenario edtior
07:28<planetmaker:#openttd>which is not exactly "running game"...
07:28<Ammler:#openttd>base costs are ugly anyway ;-)
07:29<Swallow:#openttd>I'm trying to get 2cc set to work in an old ttd scenario, but all my trains cost 500/year now :S
07:30<planetmaker:#openttd>Swallow: museum trains just stand around and don't cost. they rust. ;)
07:31<Swallow:#openttd>I'll go with cheap trains, the game isn't about money anyways
07:32<Ammler:#openttd>Swallow: load the game in the scenario editor
07:33<Ammler:#openttd>and change difficult settings
07:33<Ammler:#openttd>(not sure, if that is still needed)
07:34<planetmaker:#openttd>Swallow: did you set any parameters?
07:34<Ammler:#openttd>iirc, with save difficult settings, it changed the base costs, maybe that is possible in the game itself, too?

07:34-!-M4rk is now known as Mark_
07:34<planetmaker:#openttd>hm... which gives me the idea to make a (non network safe) entry in the advanced settings called "base costs" :)
07:35<planetmaker:#openttd>but first things first :P
07:37<Ammler:#openttd>(or what was the first?)
07:37<dihedral:#openttd>fonts things first :-P
07:37-!-davis_ [] has joined #openttd
07:40-!-worldemar [~world@] has joined #openttd
07:40<Ammler:#openttd>imo, best would be, let newgrfs change basecosts only for itself and change "general" basecosts over advanced settings.
07:41<planetmaker:#openttd>which is a big change. And needs serious coding
07:41-!-mortal` [~mortal@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:41<planetmaker:#openttd>and needs guarding by yet another setting which enables this feature.

07:58<fjb:#openttd>All the base cost changing grfs would be almost useless then.
07:59<Ammler:#openttd>that is ok, imo
07:59<Ammler:#openttd>I know around 3
08:00-!-StarLionIsaac [] has joined #openttd
08:00<Ammler:#openttd>I guess, pikka wouldn't worry about.
08:00-!-Mortal`` [~mortal@] has quit [Quit: from __future__ import antigravity]
08:01<fjb:#openttd>But what would it really change?
08:01<@Rubidium:#openttd>the difficulty in the first year
08:01<planetmaker:#openttd>basecost conflicts between deifferent vehicle sets
08:02<planetmaker:#openttd>:D And possibly that
08:04-!-valhallasw [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:04<fjb:#openttd>But even with the same base cost are the sets not ballanced.
08:04<Ammler:#openttd>it would make the base costs "transparenter", you don't have to look on every newgrf, which basecost it changes...
08:05<@petern:#openttd>are you guys *still* going on about the stupid base costs? :o
08:05<planetmaker:#openttd>fjb: fair enough, yes
08:05<fjb:#openttd>It would be better to allow 16bit costs.
08:05<@petern:#openttd>16 or 32 bit. quite so.

08:06<@petern:#openttd>shame that callback results are 8 or 15 bit only :(
08:06<planetmaker:#openttd>fjb: probably true

08:06<fjb:#openttd>Isn't that in the new gtf proposal the frosch postet?
08:06<planetmaker:#openttd>petern: speaking in ignorance of the specs probably: newgrf version 9 :P
08:07<Ammler:#openttd>fjp, you would still have the problem with the old grfs
08:07<fjb:#openttd>Most vehicle grfs are under active development.
08:07<fjb:#openttd>At least the useful ones.
08:08-!-StarLionIsaac [] has quit [Quit: Gone for an insanity break]
08:08<fjb:#openttd>And 16 or 32 bit costs would allow a better cost range inside the set as well.
08:09<@petern:#openttd>fjb, no it's not in frosch's proposal
08:10<fjb:#openttd>Maybe it could be added.
08:10<Ammler:#openttd>what against just "jail" newgrf basecost to the properities of that grf.
08:11<@petern:#openttd>BASE BASE BASE
08:11<Ammler:#openttd>yeah, I know
08:11<fjb:#openttd>Each grf would need a private copy of all base costs.
08:12<Ammler:#openttd>is there a grf, except the 2 from pikka, which really want to change the BASE?
08:13<Ammler:#openttd>most grfs missuse that already anyway.
08:13<fjb:#openttd>And then add on sets would probably fail because they expect the base set to change the base cost.
08:14<fjb:#openttd>Making the base costs private would not stop grf authors from misusing the base cost.
08:14<Ammler:#openttd>but it would not influence other newgrfs.
08:15<planetmaker:#openttd>but it wouldn't be clean.
08:15<Ammler:#openttd>but safer
08:15<@petern:#openttd>^ how to support loading of 32 bit callbacks
08:16<Ammler:#openttd>hmm, maybe the dbset changes some basecosts, like tracks and signal costs.
08:16<@petern:#openttd>dbset changes all base costs
08:17<Ammler:#openttd>petern: I mean, basecosts, which doesn't have to do with the set iself, like running costs and such.
08:17-!-Roest [] has joined #openttd
08:17<@petern:#openttd>dbset changes all base costs
08:17<fjb:#openttd>dbset is really outdated by now. But we will soon ( :-) ) see a new version.
08:18<Ammler:#openttd>all others just change the base to have better cost bandwith for their set itself.
08:18<planetmaker:#openttd>but I think the attrocities concerning meddling with all costs won't get better there
08:19<fjb:#openttd>No, some other sets change really unobvious base costs. Was that nars 1?
08:19<Ammler:#openttd>which is bad anyway, imo.
08:19<planetmaker:#openttd>well. That's superseeded by nars2.
08:20<fjb:#openttd>Yes, but it was an example that not only dbset misuses base costs that are not obvious.
08:21<Ammler:#openttd>and is there a serious reason to allow that?
08:21<planetmaker:#openttd>backward compatibility
08:21<fjb:#openttd>And more than 8 bits for the costs would be a great relief for all grf authors. German road vehicles set hat the same problems.
08:22<Ammler:#openttd>planetmaker: you mean loading old saves?
08:22<fjb:#openttd>You never know what grfs would break in strange ways.
08:22<planetmaker:#openttd>That. And that the current behaviour is what grfs were designed for.
08:23<Ammler:#openttd>how can disabling basecosts for grfs break a game?
08:24<fjb:#openttd>I guess a lot more current grfs would break.
08:24<planetmaker:#openttd>Ammler: _I_ don't know the details enough to judge. But it probably is very easy to find those cases, if one knows the code
08:25<fjb:#openttd>16 or 32 bit costs are the way to go, hopefully compatible in both TTD projects.
08:25<Ammler:#openttd>fjb: that is why you should keep it for the grf itself.
08:25<planetmaker:#openttd>Ammler: with 16 or 32 bit costs grf don't need to access basecosts anymore.
08:26<planetmaker:#openttd>so newer newgrfs may behave nicely then
08:26<fjb:#openttd>Ammler: But then a private copy of every base cost is needed. That could break grfs that change base cost with a reason.
08:27<Ammler:#openttd>fjb: yeah, a example would be nice ;-)
08:28<@petern:#openttd>that would break grfs that change base costs for a reason
08:28<@petern:#openttd>which base cost would you apply to clearing a tile?
08:28<planetmaker:#openttd>like modified building costs :)
08:28<fjb:#openttd>It is not my duty to bring examples for grfs that would break. It is yours to assure that no grf would break by the changes that you are proposing.
08:29*petern:#openttd ponders a non-adjustable 50th base cost that just tracks inflation
08:29<Ammler:#openttd>why change that with newgrs and not with difficult settings?
08:29<planetmaker:#openttd>backward compatibility :)
08:30<planetmaker:#openttd>did I say that already? :P
08:30<@petern:#openttd>that sort of change is what it is there *for*
08:30-!-einKarl [] has joined #openttd
08:31<fjb:#openttd>Base costs remind me of the A20 gate. :-(
08:32<fjb:#openttd>A feature was misused and now we have still crippled hardware only to be compatible.
08:33<planetmaker:#openttd>ah... ok. Thx
08:34<fjb:#openttd>But modern OS' don't missuse it anymore but use a clean way (32 or 64 bit wide addresses). And we should implemend a way that new grfs don't have to misuse a feature anymore.
08:35<@petern:#openttd>the A20 gate is still there, however :)
08:35<fjb:#openttd>Even DOS ist still there. So old grfs will be.
08:35<@petern:#openttd>probably emulated though :)
08:36<fjb:#openttd>DOS relies on the A20 Gate, old grfs rely on the current base cost behaviour.
08:36<fjb:#openttd>Not always emulated. :-)
08:38<fjb:#openttd>Are 16 or 31 bit costs addable to TTDP? Probably.

12:26<Eddi|zuHause:#openttd>damn, i cannot play without cargodest...
12:26<Roest:#openttd>then dont play without it
12:27<dihedral:#openttd>Eddi|zuHause, then help updating it ;-)
12:27<planetmaker:#openttd>rewrite it w/o boost :)
12:27<dihedral:#openttd>if you dont it'll die and you will then even end up playing without it eventually
12:27<Roest:#openttd>does it use bost for more than the network graph?
12:28<Eddi|zuHause:#openttd>no, it uses only bgl
12:28<Roest:#openttd>remains the question why it needs that graph
12:28<Eddi|zuHause:#openttd>(but that has loads of internal boost dependencies)
12:28<Eddi|zuHause:#openttd>Roest: for pathfinding
12:29-!-Combuster [] has joined #openttd
12:29<Roest:#openttd>oh true, somehow i was only thinking the minimap
12:29<Eddi|zuHause:#openttd>it only generates cargo when there is a path through the graph, and only choses destinations which are reachable
12:29<Eddi|zuHause:#openttd>display on the minimap is a sideeffect ;)

15:38<TrueBrain>pff .. 90 minutes for a nightly ... that is what happens when the CF starts using only one core .. lol

15:40-!-TinoM [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
15:40<TrueBrain>in a prior compile one virtualbox vm crashed
15:40<TrueBrain>a case that is very hard to detect
15:40<TrueBrain>as result, two threads became blocked
15:40<TrueBrain>(one because of the crash, a second because of trying to boot a VM that just crashed :p)
15:41<TrueBrain>I really need to rethink the compile farm (again)
15:42<TrueBrain>besides the weird link-drops of the eth0, it starts to show other impossibilities ...
15:42<planetmaker>he... a task I don't envy you for. Though I admire the work you put into it.
15:42<Eddi|zuHause>fifth time is the charm ;)
15:42<TrueBrain>Eddi|zuHause: would be the 3rd, but sure
15:42<TrueBrain>it is a really complex job and collection of scripts ..
15:42<TrueBrain>although this time it is much more clear what is going on .. still ... tricky
15:43<TrueBrain>I need better error-checking .. which is amazingly hard to implement ..
15:44<planetmaker>hm, yes... That's eating most of my daily time too: detecting anomalies in my data which hinder usual processing of the input :S
15:44<planetmaker>works 95% of the time great - but one needs to know at least when the 5% happen :S
15:45<TrueBrain>most of my friends come to me when they have such problems .. writing things to limit that is mostly very simple
15:45<TrueBrain>but ... this ... too many platforms, with too many different things
15:45<planetmaker>he, yeah. How many different binaries? A dozen?
15:45<TrueBrain>"detecting of an error is more valuable than the error itself"
15:45<TrueBrain>take Windows in our case ... even if a build fails, it still produces a .pdb file
15:46<TrueBrain>I consider this a bug of MSVC .. but it is VERY annoying, as build failures in windows are simply not detected (it produced an output file after all)
15:46<planetmaker>... whatever that is...
15:46<planetmaker>it produces an exe?
15:46<TrueBrain>pdb is a debug file
15:47-!-Zahl [] has joined #openttd
15:47<TrueBrain>when you send a crash report to MSVC, together with a pdb file, it will tell you where it crashed, like a backtrace
15:47<TrueBrain>but the beauty of it: also on release files
15:47*TrueBrain considers giving buildbot a spin ...
15:48<TrueBrain>still doesn't solve my biggest problem
15:48<TrueBrain>but at least makes a few things a bit easier :)
15:48<+glx>TrueBrain: yes it tells where, but often the variables are just wrong ;)
15:48<TrueBrain>glx: you can't have it all :)

16:59<dihedral>why do we have so many stupid users in the forums?
17:00<dihedral>and most importantly
17:00<dihedral>why does the sun set

17:03<dihedral>now that is the best explaination i have gotten for that question in all the years i have asked it

17:05<@Rubidium>if it didn't rise, it didn't need to set
17:05<dihedral>Rubidium, you should read more calvin & hobbes
17:05-!-smeding [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
17:05<@Rubidium>but then half of the earth would be pretty cold, the other part a bit warmer, thus there'll likely be massive storms
17:06<planetmaker>or as "nice" as on Venus...
17:06<@Rubidium>so you wouldn't see the sun setting/rising
17:06<@Rubidium>so it sets so you can (occasionally) see the sun instead of always having bad weather

17:07<el_en>there would be zone of constant sun set/rise.
17:08<dihedral>the storms would not be in the center of the sunny side
17:08<dihedral>they'd be at the edges :P

17:10*Rubidium agrees with Eddi
17:10<Eddi|zuHause><Rubidium> dihedral: that's a famous chicken-egg problem; why does the sun rise? <- because Susan rescued the Hogfather

20:34<Yexo>planetmaker: i am trying to use station_build_gui_r15142 and It dosnt seem to want to work all the things are red :( any ideas <- Do you still think Alain will succeed?
20:35-!-goodger_ is now known as goodger
20:41<Eddi|zuHause>am i right that with "red" he means the "modified" icon of tortoise?
20:41-!-KritiK [~Maxim@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
20:41<Aali>nah its tortoisemerge
20:42<Aali>and red doesn't even have to mean its a conflict, it just means the file wasn't the exact one expected
20:42<@Rubidium>rtfm I'd said
20:43*Yexo wonders if he already tried to compile clean trunk
20:45<CIA-1>OpenTTD: yexo * r15464 /trunk/src/ai/ (ai_info.cpp ai_info.hpp ai_scanner.cpp): -Codechange [NoAI]: Call all info.nut functions exactly once and only during initialization.
20:45<Aali>why would you use SVN for a patch pack anyway? it doesn't even have a patch management system
20:45<Yexo>I use svn + quilt for a patch I'm making, works ok
20:46-!-zachary [] has joined #openttd
20:47<Aali>yeah, but then quilt is doing the magic, not SVN
20:48<Yexo>true :)
20:48<Aali>well, no point in us discussing it here, he won't see it :P
20:48<Yexo>and it requires some manual work
20:49<@Rubidium>making a patch pack based on primarily ancient patches... not the thing a novice should start with

20:50<Eddi|zuHause>wait, are you trying to say that there is no point in talking about people behind their back?
20:51*Rubidium wonders what changes he can make to make Alain's work even more miserable ;)
20:51<Aali>Eddi|zuHause: nah it's usually great fun, but I'm going to bed
20:52-!-zachary [] has left #openttd []
20:52<Eddi|zuHause>wasted effort, i think, Rubidium ;)
20:52<@Rubidium>did a fair job lately already ;)
20:53<Eddi|zuHause>save that for people who could truely appreciate it ;p
20:53<@Rubidium>like yorick?
20:56<fjb>Btw where is yorrick? Did you ban him?
20:56<@Rubidium>my IRC client does ignore him, which is enough for me
20:57<fjb>My doesn't, but I didn't notice him the last days. Maybe my mental filter ignores him by now.

21:00<fjb>A friend tried to talk me into twitter today. But I see no sense in it and their privacy policy ist scary.
21:07<@Rubidium>is twitter google?
21:09<goodger>Rubidium: no
21:10<fjb>No, but they don't earn money with the twitter service. And they are a commercial company, no sponsored project.
21:12<CIA-1>OpenTTD: smatz * r15465 /trunk/src/ai/ (ai_info.cpp ai_info.hpp): -Codechange: constify most of AIInfo/AIFileInfo methods, move definition of very simple getters to header file
