03:41<@petern>what's the reason for r15579?
03:41-!-Combuster [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
03:41-!-Combuster [] has joined #openttd
03:41<@petern>it breaks everyone's check out :D
03:42<@Rubidium>prevents people from committing to the wrong place
03:42<@Rubidium>and 15578 equally well breaks your check out
03:52<@petern>that's the one i meant :o
03:54<@Rubidium>that's so it's still possible to make bugfixes to the stable branches and it's much easier with svn up and 'normal' branches
03:54<@Rubidium>and those hg/git people don't complain every few hours that they had to manually update the squirrel dir
03:55<@Rubidium>hmm... interesting... copy paste CAN cause desyncs
03:55-!-Zahl [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:56<@Rubidium>as in 'exclamation mark' or as in 'not'?
04:01<@Rubidium>petern: any idea what FS#2662 is about? Or can't you understand him either?
04:02<SmatZ>De_ghosty: is here and I reminded him about that task...
04:03<@Rubidium>SmatZ: so did I days ago, still no reaction

04:14<@petern>that's not a bug report
04:14<@petern>i am not faffing around with grfs and savegames if the 'report' is so vague
04:16<dihedral>@fs 2662
04:21<@petern>hmm, so many people don't bother removing their account setups after they're cancelled
04:23-!-Progman [] has joined #openttd
04:24<Timitry>Hm, anyone by any chance knows in which tr... file the signals are?
04:25<Timitry>The standard signals
04:25<@petern>yes, i do
04:25<Timitry>And would you be so kind to tell me? ;-)
04:28<Timitry>Hm, well, the OpenTTDw.grf has most if not all of them...
04:28<@petern>the original game only has one type of signal

07:13<Firzen>Hi all. I wanted to translate some wiki articles into german and don't really know how to link the translated site to the original one. Wikipedia uses links like [[de:link]] but OpenTTD:Manual_of_style says I should use Translation:title_(de). May anyone enlighten me? :D
07:25<planetmaker>good question actually :)
07:26<planetmaker>You might try out both and see which is linked to or re-directed to, if you use the usual localized link, though.
07:26<planetmaker>Maybe Rubidium knows the answer though :)
07:26<MrFrans>yea, just try the one in the manual.
07:26<MrFrans>it should create the link to page where the translation should be.

07:27-!-Mortomes [] has quit [Quit: I can get k-lined whenever I want!]
07:28<planetmaker>hm... seems to re-direct to the English one :P
07:30<MrFrans>Maybe check other translated pages and see how those are linked to.
07:30<MrFrans>and what the title should be.

07:31-!-LUADuck [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:32-!-LUADuck [] has joined #openttd
07:32<Firzen>I'll try [[de:title]] and then see... I noticed that this will be displayed if the link does not exist but seems to not appear if the link exists (in preview) so maybe it'll work.
07:33<dihedral>can you perhaps find out who wrote the instructions on the translation thingy
07:33<Firzen>And btw there is no translation anywhere actually, is it?
07:33<dihedral>and perhaps contact that person
07:33-!-Guest390 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:33<dihedral>it does not make sense to do it different if all languages follow a certain way, and there might be a valid reason for the difference
07:34-!-pleeby [] has joined #openttd
07:34-!-bleepy is now known as Guest392
07:34-!-pleeby is now known as bleepy
07:34<Firzen>Yeah. But i wonder if I shoul do things like Translation:OpenTTD:title then for OpenTTD: pages...
07:37<MrFrans>fyi: Airplane Crash near amsterdam.

07:48-!-KenjiE20 [~KenjiE20@] has joined #openttd
07:50<planetmaker>[13:33] <Firzen> And btw there is no translation anywhere actually, is it? <-- not that I'm aware of. Unfortunately.
07:50<planetmaker>Given some questions in especially the German forum a "rtfw" would be nice sometimes :)
07:51<MrFrans>read the fucking wiki, i think.
07:51<Firzen>Ah xD
07:51<MrFrans>instead of rtfm anual.
07:52-!-bleepy [] has joined #openttd
07:52-!-ecke [] has joined #openttd
07:52<planetmaker>yeah :)
07:53<Firzen>A GRF is just a change of some graphics and no object addition, isn't it?
07:53<Firzen>Or did I get that wrong...
07:53<MrFrans>can be both.
07:53<planetmaker>what's a "object addition"?
07:54<Firzen>A new object.
07:54<MrFrans>a new train.
07:54<Firzen>In the game.
07:54<planetmaker>yeah. can be.
07:54<planetmaker>It can also be neither.
07:54<planetmaker>It can be just that e.g. power plants learn to close down
07:54<Firzen>Because I'd really like to add some industries.
07:54<planetmaker>or it can be that bridges cost 64 as much as usual
07:55<Firzen>So GRF is something like a general Add-On
07:55<planetmaker>or it can be that the silicon and wood bridge switch their images.
07:55<MrFrans>Yea, planetmaker I'm thinking newgrf button in the game, should be called addons. So people who aren't part of dev community can understand what it means.
07:55*MrFrans should probably post that on the forum.
07:55<planetmaker>I introduced in the German ingame strings the word "Erweiterung" for anything like newGRF, AIs...
07:55<Firzen>What do GRF mean btw?
07:56<planetmaker>grf. graphics
07:56<planetmaker>but... it's an ancient name
07:56<planetmaker>it's just grf
07:56<planetmaker>graphics resource file
07:56<MrFrans>erweiterung is expansion, right?
07:56*MrFrans is dutch
07:56<Firzen>But "Graphics" misses the point, doesn't it?
07:56-!-Darkvater [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
07:57<planetmaker>well, yes
07:57-!-Darkvater [] has joined #openttd
07:57-!-mode/#openttd [+o Darkvater] by ChanServ
07:57<planetmaker>grf = graphics resource file
07:57<planetmaker>so... adding new properties to existing graphics is a valid option, too
07:57<planetmaker>or changing.
07:57<Firzen>You could now just pretend it's not your fault and define it as "GameaddonResourceFile" :P
07:58<planetmaker>Generic ;)
07:58<MrFrans>it basically also tells what a graphic can do. If you see the graphic as a object.
07:58-!-ecke [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:58<Firzen>Though this game just contains graphics <.<
07:59<Firzen>No 3D models or collisions like in 3D games
07:59<Firzen>Only oldschool 2D graphics ^^
07:59<Firzen>Located so that they look like a world.
08:00<planetmaker>The result is what matters
08:00<Firzen>It's unique.
08:00<Firzen>Though there is this LocoMotion.
08:00<MrFrans>which is also 2d
08:00<planetmaker>then play Locomotion or TransportEmpire
08:01<planetmaker>or whatever. I didn't look at any :P
08:01<MrFrans>transport empire isn't a playable game yet, is it?
08:01<planetmaker>dunno. Might be :)
08:01<Firzen>3D xD
08:01<planetmaker>but probably not :P
08:02<planetmaker>what would you gain by 3D? Not much. And loose 100% performance.
08:02<Firzen>But TTD is very comprehensive. Will take very long time to remake this.
08:03<Firzen>360°-view :P
08:03<MrFrans>Mostly the models.
08:03<Firzen>Plus x and y axis rotation and free zoom.
08:03<planetmaker>With the introduction of the advanced and selectively invisibility features the need to rotate the map in order to see whether you can build X there or not also vanished completely
08:04*MrFrans nods
08:04<planetmaker>You don't need 3D-models for free zoom. You just need vector graphics
08:04<Firzen>If all ppl would think like planetmaker the computer research would have stopped 20 years ago and we'ld use DOS ^^
08:05<planetmaker>Firzen: no.
08:05<MrFrans>true for about the zoom.
08:05<planetmaker>But there are things which don't make sense within a certain framwork
08:05<Firzen>Vector textures? :o
08:06<Firzen>Shame on me this game consists of textures xD
08:07<MrFrans>basically it is graphice that scales to higher resolution when you zoom in. I believe it does this, by describing the graphic mathimatically.
08:07<Firzen>Games are more successfull the more they imitate the reality.
08:07<MrFrans>you mean the more they imitate movie reality.
08:08<MrFrans>which does not equal reality,
08:08<Firzen>In case of TTD the real reality
08:08<Firzen>I never saw a film about TTD xD
08:10<MrFrans>Most games don't equal reality, they just have prettier pictures. I wish life had so much bloom as games nowadays have.
08:11<MrFrans>"We make the world dark and dirtier because that is real" "Now it looks depressing, let's at glow and bloom" "Oh pretty" "More!" "More!"
08:11<planetmaker>realistic (what is that) doesn't mean necessarily more gaming fun
08:11<MrFrans>exactly planetmaker
08:11<planetmaker>the charm of this game imo is exactly the style of the graphics and how things are handled.
08:12<Firzen>I like the Multi-Window Feature ^^
08:12<planetmaker>adjusting it to some kind of 3d locomotion-like graphics is... a depressing thought
08:12<planetmaker>(from what I see in the screeshots
08:13<Firzen>Yeah these 3D worlds don't look serious and not realistic.
08:13<Firzen>More like plastic.
08:13<planetmaker>cheap one at that
08:15-!-Sacro [~ben@] has quit [Quit: Sacro]
08:15<Firzen>Is there an option how much subventions are offered per annum/month/whatever?
08:16<planetmaker>not afaik.
08:16<planetmaker>They're useless anyway :P
08:16<Firzen>The subventions?
08:17<planetmaker>going for them is IMO a waste of money and time
08:17<planetmaker>I never look for or at them
08:17<Firzen>Yes, but I take them as missions to not have to be creative.
08:17<planetmaker>there are always more profitable projects without subsidies.
08:17<planetmaker>even then. Pick two random industries which can exchange cargo and you're most likely better off
08:18-!-Timitry [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
08:18<Firzen>It's too simple to get rich.
08:19<planetmaker>start with less loan, high interest, very early and increased costs
08:19-!-ecke [] has joined #openttd
08:19<Firzen>Sounds like a possible solution planet ^^
08:19<planetmaker>starting 1970 with 1M loan and low interest and normal costs is... indeed no challange money-wise.
08:19*Firzen forgot that he plays always as easy as possible.
08:20<planetmaker>two airports, two planes and an annual income of 1 million is at least guaranteed.
08:20-!-ecke [] has quit []
08:20<MrFrans>locomotion isn't all that different planetmaker. it has just a few more rotations for the trains. how it looks depends on the graphics developer.
08:20<planetmaker>though felicitus' new train AI was more successfull with his train route :)
08:20<Firzen>Is the Multiplayer from Open TTD or is it a native TTD Feature?
08:21<planetmaker>I *think* OpenTTD.
08:21<Firzen>I like this MP.
08:21<Firzen>Though I don't get how to setup a custom server,
08:22<blathijs>Firzen: TTD had multiplayer, but only two-player IIRC
08:22<blathijs>Firzen: OpenTTD's multiplayer is completely rewritten
08:22<planetmaker>just start your game as multiplayer and select to run the server :)
08:22<planetmaker>or run it with openttd -D
08:24<Firzen>Will the companies be deleted after an amount of time if they don't get under 0 $?
08:25<planetmaker>four consecutive quarters below 0$
08:25<planetmaker>(always the 1st day of the quarter counts only)
08:26<Firzen>and above 0$?
08:26-!-Progman [] has quit [Quit: Progman]
08:27<planetmaker>why should they?
08:28<planetmaker>oh, you're so poor. I've pitty. I'll shoot you?
08:28<Firzen>I mean if a company has no players and runs on a root server
08:29<Firzen>Will it survive?
08:29<@Rubidium>depends on the settings
08:29<Firzen>If it has a positive income
08:29<planetmaker>depends upon config.
08:30<Firzen>k. I think it's all set up in this cfg file that's described on the wiki!?
08:30<planetmaker>yes/always after n months/only without password after n months
08:30<planetmaker>I guess

09:29<Brokkoli>and compare a byte of it to 0
09:29<@petern>is it definitely for a vehcile?
09:29<Brokkoli>since its a pointer it can be anything
09:30<Brokkoli>i got that from decompiling a grf
09:30<Brokkoli>02 should be a vehicle as i think
09:30<Brokkoli>ah ship
09:30<@petern>02 is yes, but it's possible it's misfeatured, although i think that is disallowed now
09:31<@petern>if the feature of the action 3 is also 02, then it's ship, yes
09:31<@petern>and if someone tests var 0x86 in ottd, it won't work :D
09:31<@petern>what grf is it?
09:31<Brokkoli>how can i check that?
09:31<Brokkoli>the nshp_ecs.grf
09:31<@petern>follow the action 2 forward
09:32<Brokkoli>last lines are
09:32<Brokkoli> 53 * 14 02 02 0C 81 86 00 FF 01 0B 00 00 00 00 00

09:33<@petern>callback 18
09:33<@petern>AI construction hmm
09:34<@petern>in that case it's special
09:34<Brokkoli>ok thanks
09:34<Brokkoli>so its
09:34<Brokkoli>86 B AI construction event
09:34<@petern>callback 18 is not done through feature 2...
09:35<@petern>or perhaps the feature does not matter in that case
09:37<Brokkoli>but thanks it helped me a lot

09:56<planetmaker>hey Felicitus :)
09:57<Brokkoli>not relative
09:57<planetmaker>Felicitus: the first water arrived at the station way before the train left. The generation time of the water counts afaik
09:58<planetmaker>but most likely that doesn't suffice to explain the difference.

09:59<Felicitus>planetmaker: yes, i know that, the second train only made 160k even tough it left immediately
10:00<planetmaker>k :)
10:00<Felicitus>maybe the max days of the cargo is not depending on the distance
10:00<planetmaker>uhm... no, it isn't afaik.
10:00<Brokkoli>no its not
10:00<Felicitus>hmm that would explain it
10:01<Brokkoli>it thats correct:
10:01<Felicitus>so every day counts once i'm over the late days variable
10:01<Felicitus>ok, so if i make that distance in less than 80 days i would theretically get the full amount
10:02<planetmaker>if you teleport, you'd get even more :P
10:02-!-Guest431 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

10:28<planetmaker>it is a 256 x 1024 map
10:28<planetmaker>you find it in the forums
10:30<planetmaker>it just collected money but the only KI debug output which continued to get added occasionally was related to the not implemented save function

13:32<@Belugas>My opinion : not a bug. Random assignation
13:33<Yexo>I'm not so sure, he's right that there is a bit too much green
13:33<Yexo>more than 'random' would explain
13:33<frosch123>Half-Desert is decided by checking the neighboured tiles, how does it deal with MP_VOID ?
13:34<Yexo>no special at all
13:34<Yexo>bu tI have to go now
13:34<frosch123>so a TropicZone is also generated for MP_VOID tiles?
13:34<energetic>oh, only 7581 errors when compiling
13:35<Brokkoli>maybe thats the reason
13:35<Brokkoli>on my servers current map there is no desert at the borders at all.. all green

16:58<Yexo>no, and there won't be one either
16:58<Yexo>apart from dualheaded, a train can also be articulated
16:58<Felicitus>whats articulated?
16:58<Yexo>consisting of multiple parts
16:58<Felicitus>ah okay
16:58<Felicitus>so i have to build the engine and then get the train length?
16:58<Yexo>and you're not interested if it's articulated or dual-headed, you're interested in the length of the engine, right?
16:59<Yexo>the length of the train is only available (even to openttd) after the engine is bought
16:59<Felicitus>because sometimes, it builds a turner turbo and then the train is one waggon too long
16:59<Yexo>the way I solved that in admiralai: buy the engine, add wagons untill the entire train is just too long, then sell the last wagon again
17:00<Felicitus>i guess i will do it the same way
17:00<Yexo>some newgrfs also have wagons that are shorter then the default wagons, and in those cases you want to buy more wagons to get the same train length
17:00<Yexo>to just checking the lenght of the engine isn't enough
17:01<Felicitus>yes i noticed that in another gam
17:03<Yexo>petern: imo it'd be better to disable the whole base graphics set dropdown in the game, not only disable all entries
17:03<Yexo>that way it's directly visible you can't change it
17:04<Ammler>why isn't that possible?
17:04<Yexo>Ammler: are you talking about the train length?
17:04<Yexo>that's because of newgrf callbacks
