03:37<Timitry>Just a question... In this thread: http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=42044 it has been proposed that OpenTTD gets a new defautl background. Now i'm wondering... Is there any chance that could happen, if the new background would just be amazing (and without newGrfs, too)?

03:50<dihedral>that would be something either answered in the other thread where someone tried to make a competition, or answered by the dev's
03:50<dihedral>however, you can replace that intro game yourself in your own client ;-)

04:03<Timitry>Ups, disconnect... Anyone wrote anything on that Intro-Screen topic here? :)
04:03<@petern>nope
04:03<@petern>only that it's been proposed before and there wasn't a new one
04:03<Timitry>dihedral: Yes, i know that, and i was hoping for an answer of the devs :)
04:03<@petern>so i wouldn't worry about it
04:04<Timitry>So there won't be a new one? :(
04:07-!-Progman [~progman@p57A1D83B.dip.t-dialin.net] has joined #openttd

04:13<Timitry>1. It's quite empty at higher resolutions, 2. we had it a long time now, and it kinda gets boring, 3. it could show more great features :)

04:15<dihedral>4. how long do you actually spend looking at the intro game?
04:16<dihedral>it's a intro background to the game, not a movie
04:17<Timitry>Still it could be made more interesting

04:18-!-db48x [~db48x@64.218.49.85] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:18<Timitry>And consider new players, the first thing they see of OpenTTD is the background, which could possibly show them a lot of the possibilities they have with that great game
04:19<Progman>Timitry: iirc the mainmenu background game is used for old savegame checks
04:20<Yexo>Progman: even if that was true, it wouldn't matter
04:20<Progman>to automatically get a check if old savegames can still be loaded
04:20<Yexo>having another default intro game doesn't mean the current intro game is thrown away

04:21-!-[com]buster is now known as Combuster
04:29<dihedral>Timitry: what other games have you played in the past 2 years?
04:30<Timitry>Well, couldn't that also still be checked by just loading that savegame? Or one just replaces the opntitle.dat with the old one... Question is, how often are changes being made which can possibly break savegame compatibility, and how often do you need to check if the old one does still work?
04:30<Timitry>Quite a few... Why?
04:30<dihedral>tell me about their background of the main menu
04:30<dihedral>or at least think about it ;-)
04:31<dihedral>the intro screen is not there to help noobs
04:31<dihedral>that's is what a wiki is there for
04:32<dihedral>+ the intro game, if it were that interesting that you could see and watch a bunch of stuff on max res, the cpu usage is also something to consider!
04:33<dihedral>hey, openttd can run on a low-cpu machine, only issue, the intro game needs 4 times as much!

04:37<Timitry>dihedral: "tell me about their background of the main menu" ---> CSS: Just a simple picture, showing two soldiers with weapons + armor. GTA4: Showing latest news and a featured video...
04:38<Timitry>And well, the memory usage is a valid argument, i guess, but the new intro screen does not neccessarily have to be much more cpu-consuming than the old one
04:40<Ammler>Timitry: maybe the easiest would be to have a cfg setting, where you could change the intro save.
04:41<planetmaker>may the settings jungle live long and prosper :P
04:42<dihedral>yay
04:42<dihedral>hey ho pm :-)
04:43<planetmaker>good day dihedral good day all :)
04:47<dihedral>Timitry: make an intro game
04:47<dihedral>just dont be disappointed if the devs dont include it
04:51<Ammler>I liked Roujin's patch, where the menu jumps from sign to sign, nice to watch MZ games with.
04:52<Ammler>dunno, if that patch is still up2date.

04:59<dihedral>i dont even see the intro game :-P
05:00<Ammler>well, me neither
05:01<Ammler>just the jumper from sign to sign was neat.

05:55<dihedral>hihi - for the title screen - 10 ships and yapf enabled :-D
06:01<dihedral>could there be a place on bananas for 32bpp graphics?
06:02<@Rubidium>maybe in the (far) future
06:02<Eddi|zuHause>i really think, 32bpp graphics should (from a user point of view) treated like base graphics
06:03<Eddi|zuHause>+be
06:05<@petern>what, all of them?
06:06<@Rubidium>yeah, and then crash OpenTTD because they haven't implemented the question mark yet
06:06<@petern>i think you mean they should be able to be used as base graphics in an obg, rather than treating them as base graphics
06:07<@petern>invalid argument
06:07<@petern>the same applies to grf base graphics
06:08<@Rubidium>trueish, but that set has sprites for everything (some black though), but I haven't seen one 'set' of 32 bpp graphics
06:08<@petern>"that" ?
06:08<@Rubidium>the only replacement check
06:09<@Rubidium>s/check/set/ ;)
06:09<@petern>i would say that a question mark sprite would get implemented pretty quickly if it was supported
06:09<Eddi|zuHause>i really mean the user interface (bananas, game setting, .obg file), not the internal handling
06:09<@petern>Eddi|zuHause: wrong
06:09<@petern>you can have 32bpp graphics to replace newgrf files too...
06:09<@petern>that wouldn't fit in with base graphics
06:09<@petern>s/files/graphics/
06:10<@Rubidium>even for base graphics replacement a *real* 8bpp graphics replacement set is needed
06:11<@Rubidium>or you must find some way to make 32bpp newgrfs

06:27-!-Timitry [83dc24f1@webchat.mibbit.com] has joined #openttd
06:27<@Rubidium>well, quite a large amount of them won't work in stock OpenTTD
06:28<@Rubidium>then a similarly large amount won't work in that patched version
06:28<dihedral>great
06:28<dihedral>wha't stops them from working?
06:28<@Rubidium>and another large bunch won't work in either and need egladil's version
06:28<@Rubidium>dihedral: sprites being 4 times too big/small
06:29<dihedral>ouch
06:29<Noldo>are they for the zoomlevelpatch

06:37<@petern>artists using 32bpp seem to believe they must use a renderer and must create giant graphics
06:40-!-energetic [~opera@ip82-139-119-221.lijbrandt.net] has joined #openttd
06:41<MrFrans>right, to big is not so much a issue, they can be easily resized. I suppose that is why they do the big render.
06:42<MrFrans>I just wish they would put some dirt on the vehicles. They all look like they just rolled out of the factory. Also very plasticy. It doesn't have to be like that.

06:52<racetrack>hello
06:52<racetrack>I'm new here
06:52<racetrack>but finally wanted to share something I've been working on for the past few days
06:52<racetrack>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsEpFy_RSuU
06:52<racetrack>still a way off from finished, but at least its demo-quality now
06:54<Timitry>boom
06:54<Timitry>hehe
06:54-!-[com]buster [~Combuster@82-171-220-59.ip.telfort.nl] has joined #openttd
06:54<racetrack>hehe yeah
06:55<dihedral>racetrack: what is your goal?
06:55<Timitry>Wow, looks good, and i certainly like it :)
06:55<racetrack>made me chuckle
06:55<planetmaker>interesting
06:55<planetmaker>can the trains leave on the other side?
06:55<Timitry>Was about to post that question :D
06:55<Timitry>Not yet, it seems
06:55<racetrack>dihedral: having a depot on a siding or something, drive in the bottom, get a service, leave from the top and on your way
06:56<racetrack>planetmaker, Timitry: not yet
06:56<racetrack>thats next
06:56<racetrack>turning is hardcoded into the depot code
06:56<racetrack>(quite reasonably)
06:56<Timitry>That'd be awesome...
06:56<racetrack>needs a little pathfinding on exit instead
06:56<dihedral>and following yapf?
06:56<Timitry>And then longer depots
06:56<racetrack>yeah
06:56<Timitry>:)
06:56<racetrack>it'll just call "the pathfinder"
06:56<racetrack>whoever he is today
06:57<dihedral>why do you need longer depots?
06:57<racetrack>eyecandy aiui
06:57<Timitry>Else it looks ugly :)
06:57<racetrack>I don't need them
06:57<dihedral>depends on the settings
06:57<racetrack>but thats for someone else to do
06:57<dihedral>Timitry: a bunch of stuff 'looks ugly'
06:57<racetrack>with a slightly larger sprite and a run of dtdepots you could fake it
06:57<dihedral>great!!!!
06:57<racetrack>but I don't much care about it
06:58<Timitry>If you have a 20-tile train vanishing in a 1-tile depot and then come out on the other side of it ;-) I know that's the case now, too ;)
06:58<Eddi|zuHause>what exactly is that video supposed to show?
06:58<dihedral>Eddi|zuHause: it can enter a depot from either side
06:58<racetrack>Eddi|zuHause: that you can enter a single depot from either side
06:58<racetrack>thats all I have so far

06:59<dihedral>well.... at least you got thus far without bombarding the forums ^^
06:59<racetrack>yeah
06:59<planetmaker>teeh
06:59<racetrack>I've been around many forums in my time
06:59<racetrack>they're all the same
06:59<racetrack>so my approach stays the same
06:59<planetmaker>?
06:59<racetrack>actually do something before you say you're going to do something :P
06:59<planetmaker>which is quite a reasonable approach :)
07:00<racetrack>I'll post about it once I have a finished patch that people can actually use
07:00-!-Dred_furst [~Dred@resnet663.bournemouth.ac.uk] has joined #openttd
07:00<racetrack>haha
07:00<dihedral>yes
07:00<dihedral>people should follow that approach more often
07:00<dihedral>hmmm.... i'm gonna make a patch pack... how do i compile? i cannot find the option in the tortoise menu
07:01<@Rubidium>dihedral: don't be stupid... OSX doesn't have tortoise
07:01<planetmaker>he managed somehow, though. Though I have the feeling the patches are non-conflicting ones :)
07:01<dihedral>^^
07:02<dihedral>and updated to the rev he's using
07:02<Timitry>About that eyecandy: If you got that far that a train can enter one side and leave on the other, *someone* (like always not myself :D) could make a grf which has a larger depot (already exists) and the depot as station - that way you could place a depot somewhere, and fake-depots aka stations before and after it, and you would get a long depot, which consists of 1 depot tile and a bunch of station tiles :)
07:02<racetrack>Timitry: sounds painful. go for it :)
07:03<dihedral>just so you can be lazy and not have to service your trains?
07:03<Timitry>Would probably not even be too hard... :)

11:56<+glx>there are no alternative soundpacks
11:56<+glx>or you must apply a patch and recompile first
11:57<Burns>so there is no direct support in the latest nightly for use with these?, litle hard to compile patches in win32 :S
11:57<pavel1269>why so?

12:05<@Belugas>the answer is no, if you mean effortless receving the info
12:05<Burns>i think its strange that this project have been going for so long and still dont have free sounds

12:48<[wito]>how do you keep vehicles from reloading the cargo they just onloaded?
12:49<KenjiE20>[wito], "no loading"
12:50<@Rubidium>Burns, what about: install wubi (wubi-installer.org) & start it, open console, sudo apt-get install g++ libsdl-dev zlib1g-dev libpng-dev libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig-dev

12:51<[wito]>KenjiE20: well, it's a bit more complicated, I suppose
12:51<[wito]>If I have a two-way line between two cities
12:51<KenjiE20>not particulary
12:51<[wito]>consisting of a train station and an airport station in each
12:51<KenjiE20>oh, this quandry
12:52<[wito]>I want to move People from Town A -> Airport A -> Airport B -> Town B
12:52<[wito]>that's simple enough
12:52<[wito]>but I also want to move people along the same route, the other way
12:52<Ammler>[wito]: cargodest
12:52<[wito]>which is a bit more troublesome. :P
12:52<KenjiE20>yea, there's no way around it, save removing the airport or using cargodest atm
12:52<[wito]>cargodest is not in trunk, is it?
12:53<KenjiE20>nope, it's branched
12:53<[wito]>not even in nightlies?
12:53<KenjiE20>that is trunk
12:54<[wito]>right. :P
12:54<@Belugas>what???? nightlies are generated from trunk's code???
12:55<@Belugas>ho boy...
12:55<Ammler>you could "simulate" your situation with tansfer at airports and no loading
12:55<Ammler>but then the Airport->Town is empty
12:55<@Rubidium>[wito]: I'd say it's a frequently asked question, but then my only proof for that is a wiki: http://wiki.openttd.org/wiki/index.php/FAQ_OpenTTD_versions
12:56<[wito]>actually, nightlies are trunk in any project; I'm just thick. :P
12:56<Ammler>(but if you are a good "roleplayer", it should be fine enough ;-)
12:56<@Rubidium>[wito]: that
12:56<@Rubidium>[wito]: that's not true
12:58<Ammler>KenjiE20: you could also make 2 Airports per town and using one for drop the other for pickup
12:59<@Rubidium>gcc makes 'nightlies' of several branches, we've been making nightlies of branches
12:59<KenjiE20>if it's big enough to get around the noise limit
12:59<Burns>Rubidium: thx for tips with wubi, i will take a look at it, but it doesnt solve my problem. i have vmware so i can always get linux going if i want to
12:59<Ammler>it would look a littly funny, if the planes fly from one to the other adjacent :-)
12:59<KenjiE20>or far enough away
12:59<[wito]>KenjiE20: or the trains are fast enough to move people a lot of squares to city center
12:59<[wito]>what's the distance limit for airports?
12:59<[wito]>that is, how close can two airports be?
13:00<Ammler>KenjiE20: build those outside of the authority region.
13:00<Ammler>they could be adjacent, I guess
13:01<Ammler>we have done such scenarios with trains already
13:02<[wito]>well, the airport express train isn't a big deal setting up,
13:02<[wito]>but what sticks in my craw is sending empty trains to the airport in once city and sending empty trains to town in another
13:02<Ammler>the only silly thing is planes need to switch the airport
13:02<Ammler>they can't just "drive" to the other
13:03<[wito]>yeah
13:04<[wito]>that is silly
13:04-!-Dred_furst [~Dred@resnet663.bournemouth.ac.uk] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
13:05<[wito]>but there is an option
13:05<[wito]>if you have two airports in each of the towns involved, that is
13:06<[wito]>if each of them has a nearby industry (like a factory or fruit plantation) you can refit the planes
13:06<[wito]>transport some goods (or fruit) to the other town
13:06<[wito]>and fly them back full of people
13:06<[wito]>and it only costs, what, £20k per round-trip? ;P
13:06<Ammler>well, that is sillier ;-)
13:07<Ammler>then the best is let local transport drive empty to the town
13:07<[wito]>but then the two-way problem persists
13:08<Ammler>why?
13:08<[wito]>if any transport is allowed two-way transport, it breaks down
13:08<[wito]>because they will keep reloading themselves with their own unloaded passengers
13:08<Ammler>not if the airport accept pass
13:09<Ammler>then they will be dropped after unloading
13:09<[wito]>true
13:09<Ammler>that is how feeder systems works
13:11<[wito]>hmm
13:11<[wito]>brb, shop. :P
13:11<Ammler>maybe it is possible to make a cargodest light, which only doesn't load the same cargo on the same vehicle.
13:12<Ammler>but then you will get the pass from the bus in unloaded 1 tick before you.
13:13<@Rubidium>Ammler: and then two planes with the same order unload simultaniously and load eachother's cargo
13:13<Ammler>yeah
13:13<@Rubidium>ergo: a cargodest light doesn't fix it
13:13<Ammler>you would need to extend it to orders and have almost cargodest :-)
13:14<[wito]>well, one very simple sollution
13:14<[wito]>is to at airports never load transfer passengers that are from any station in the same town
13:15<@Rubidium>so when you come from an oil rig you aren't allowed to be transfered onto a plane?
13:16<[wito]>hmm
13:16<[wito]>let me expand on that. :P
13:17<[wito]>"At airports to never load passengers that are from a station in the same town onto anything other than a plane or helicopter."
13:18<[wito]>and never load onto planes or helicopters transfer passengers from different towns
13:18<[wito]>which wouldn't work all that well either. :P
13:18<pavel1269>"boat 9 come back. boat 9, come back!" "we have just 8 boats" "oh, boat 6, any problems?"
13:19<[wito]>haha
13:19<pavel1269>:-)
13:19<[wito]>"At airports, never load passengers onto the same kind of transportation they arrived with unless no other mode of transportation is available."

13:22<@Rubidium>a->b->c->d->b->c->d->b->c->d <- they never go back to their origin
13:23<[wito]>true, but if they are transfered in a circle like that, something is amiss somewhere in the basic layout of your network. :P

13:56<+glx>yes it's a known bug
13:56<KingJ>Ah, ok
13:58<[wito]>Eureka!
13:59<[wito]>All airports (except international and intercontinental) operate with two passenger pools:
13:59<[wito]>Arrivals (where everyone that arrive by plane are put)
14:00<[wito]>and Departures (where everyone arriving by local transportation, including copter, ends up)
14:00<Ammler>you mean 2 stations per airport?
14:01<[wito]>planes only draw passengers from the departures pool, local transport (including copters) only from arrivals
14:01<[wito]>Ammler: more of an internal thing, I was thinking
14:01<[wito]>all other cargo would be put in one pool
14:01<[wito]>for interncontinental and international there would have to be, of course, 4 pools
14:01<[wito]>two for small planes, two for big ones
14:01<@Rubidium>so a non inter.*al airport can't have plane-plane transfers?
14:01<@Rubidium>or aircraft-aircraft transfers for that matter
14:02<[wito]>inter.*al airports would only have transfers from small to big planes, and big to small planes
14:02<@Rubidium>and what makes the inter.*al airports special w.r.t. transfers?
14:03<@Rubidium>it's not like big planes only do the inter.*al transport and the small planes only the local transport
14:03<[wito]>Rubidium: In a large network, you would have a few huge airports, and several small ones?
14:03-!-kosher [~kosher@ip-89-174-120-61.multimo.gtsenergis.pl] has joined #openttd
14:03<Ammler>[wito]: don't define the pools per station, just make it possible to have more cargo-pools or buffers or however ;-)
14:03<Ammler>which are chosesable per orderlist
14:03<@Rubidium>it all ends up with implementing some sort of cargodest
14:04<@Rubidium>so better implement that than those untransparant and complex (ununderstandable) schemes
14:04<[wito]>actually, this is just Arrivals/Departures for airports. :P
14:04<@Rubidium>but *WHY* airports?
14:04<@Rubidium>train stations have the same problem
14:04<@Rubidium>so do those things called docks
14:04<Ammler>airport is just a station
14:04<@Rubidium>and even those things called road stops
14:05<[wito]>why airports?
14:05<[wito]>WHY AIRPORTS?
14:05<[wito]>Airports because:
14:06<[wito]>Now that airport placement is goverened by noise level, the airport is the most likely station to be outside of town catechement area, and unable to accept passengers in its own right
14:06<[wito]>making it the most likely station to be problematic in this type of feeder scenario
14:06<@Rubidium>*you* want to play with airports in a specific way
14:07<kosher>May I ask a question: Why when I set up a goods route, when goods get transferred from refinery to ship by trucks, then by ship, and finally by another truck, I pay instead of getting income at tle last truck?
14:07<[wito]>kosher: you're moving the goods too slow
14:08<[wito]>meaning that when you get paid for transfer early on, you're overcompensated
14:08<@Rubidium>which means you are only interested in 'fixing' your problem for your case
14:08<@Rubidium>kosher: because you don't understand how the transfer system works
14:09<[wito]>Rubidium: so no other "Advanced Setting (nice new name, btw. :)" has ever started out as a sollution to a specific problem experienced by a specific player?

14:20<[wito]>for single-source-single-target transport (except oil from oil rigs) I try to avoid it where possible
14:20<planetmaker>those orders make sure you have _loads_ of passengers waiting at your big intercity station

15:01<energetic>since "full load" here on both stations will for sure cause a jam at the smaller town, "full load" at the big town, and not full load prevents this
15:01<energetic>but then the ratings drop at the small town, causing little pasengers to be transported from the small town
15:01<planetmaker>Ammler: no, that was done prior to me, I think. Though I might be responsible for one :P
15:01<planetmaker>But then only copying bad style :)
15:02<Ammler>energetic: it really depense on the client, on some clients you need to ask the nick (whois) how his "status" is, mine does show that (dih is greyed), but my client makes around 10 times more traffic then the usual clients (background traffic)
15:02<energetic>solution: timetable trains to wait 5-10 days at the smaller station, now ratings will usually stay above 60%
15:02<Eddi|zuHause>[wito]: the builtin timetabling is of rather limited use, but the "improved timetable management" is really great
15:03<Cybertinus>Rubidium: thnx for the timidity tip. I installed it, and now the music works :D
15:03<[wito]>Eddi|zuHause: trains waiting for each other and such?
15:03<energetic>Ammler: I did not realize I simply could click on the user and start a private conversation
15:03<Ammler>then you would see it too, I guess...
15:03<Eddi|zuHause>[wito]: the first obvious improvement is vehicles on shared orders being spread out equally
15:03<energetic>well, that part I knew, but not that he would autoreply with that answer.
15:04<[wito]>Eddi|zuHause: so three water tanker trains on a 3 month time table would ensure monthly water?
15:04<[wito]>Sweet
15:04<energetic>no
15:05<Eddi|zuHause>yes, but only with improved timetabling (or much micromanagement with the current timetabling)
15:05<energetic>crashes, network hickups, jams, also: towns need every 20 days water, not every 30 days iirc
15:05<Ammler>planetmaker: the funny part was more the reaction of Eddi|zuHause :-)
15:05<energetic>using timetabling you can boost the efficiency of your trains in some cases up to about 50%
15:06<Eddi|zuHause>well, it was not the first time i mentioned the low quality of that window
15:07<Eddi|zuHause>[wito]: what the default timetabling is seriously lacking is synchronising timetables between different vehicles
15:07<energetic>wito: to ensure monthly water, best is to drop water at a station, and then transfer it by truck into town. since the truck can handle only a small percentage of the water train cargo, it should be still busy when the next water dropoff occurs
15:07<energetic>same goes for food & goods

15:08<Eddi|zuHause>e.g. "express train leaves at 12:05, freight train leaves at 12:10"
15:08<energetic>it however does affect your revenue a few percent
15:09<energetic>since food/goods/water comes on its destination later
15:10<energetic>but the best use of timetabling i found is growing towns with buses
15:14<Cutter>energetic: why do you need timetables in this case?
15:15<energetic>in certain cases timetabling helps ensuring stations are serviced every 20 days
15:16<energetic>ie a bus stop only generating 5 pax/mo, are best configured to wait like 10 days, if you buy 2 buses
15:16<energetic>sometimes they drive behind each other, and 20 days arent met
15:16<@Belugas>yeah!!!!
15:17<@Belugas>Scotland Shame!!!
15:18<energetic>usually, you would buy enough buses to make sure that 20 days are met. But sometimes, you dont have the money, or the town layout is weird and the bus needs to drive around the whole town

15:26<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause: download the torrent ;-)
15:26<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: "did not air" typically means "there is no such torrent"
15:26<@Belugas>energetic, i do not know, at all... Actually, that avatar was in reaction ot a comment from Eddi|zuHause :) Initially, it was a real beluga, the white dolphin without wing
15:26<Ammler>"the scene" might have the english version too.
15:27<Eddi|zuHause>what? i have never commented your avatar, Belugas... maybe you mix people up?

15:29<@Belugas>Eddi|zuHause: i'm 99.9% sure it was you. You said that whenever you saw me coming inline, you were thinking of that plane :)
15:29<@Belugas>long time ago... i'd say
15:29<Ammler>at least from the tracker I use, they seed it with 2 languages
15:29<Ammler>which episode are you looking for?

15:32<Eddi|zuHause>Belugas: afair you already had that plane avatar when i first visited the forum (that must be over 2 years ago)
15:32<Eddi|zuHause>(or 3?)

15:37<pavel1269>btw, is there a way to apply patch with MSVC?
15:38<Ammler>is that serie canceled?

15:51<Ammler>yep, but orion isn't that typical ;-)
15:52<Ammler>ah you meant 17
15:52<@Rubidium>roughly 15-25 episodes per season is common for American series, 5-15 is common for British series (e.g. Dr Who)
15:52<Eddi|zuHause>"SciFi" being the tv channel

18:46<CIA-1>OpenTTD: Note: as you might know subversion has the tendency to also remove unversioned files when a directory is removed, so scenarios and heightmaps in that directory will be gone too.

18:48<Aali>ouch
18:48<Aali>people will hate you for that
18:49<Aali>(even though it's 100% their own fault they lost data)
18:49<@Rubidium>did I warn them?

19:04<Brokkoli>will svn up automaticly delete modified files?
19:05<Brokkoli>i thougt it wouldn't
19:05<Aali>no
19:05<Yexo>for me it didn't
19:05<Brokkoli>ok
19:06<Aali>the problem is that svn doesn't care about _unversioned_ files when it removes a versioned directory
19:07<Brokkoli>it does not?
19:07<Brokkoli>uh..
19:07<Aali>so, if you keep some scenarios in the bin/ dir and svn up, poof, they're gone
19:07<Brokkoli>didn't know that
19:07<Yexo>Aali: I tested it, and it didn't remove some unversioned files for me
19:08<@Rubidium>it's "just" that many people got kinda pissed because they 'lost' files when we merged makefile rewrite and c++, which also (re)moved files in massive quantities
19:08<Aali>maybe it has been fixed
19:08<Aali>I don't use svn for openttd
