03:40<dihedral>morning :-)
03:41<@SmatZ>morning
03:41<dihedral>\o/
03:41*dihedral is cleaning his monitor, after having to sneeze
03:42<@SmatZ>ewww
03:58<dihedral>^^
04:23<@Rubidium>yay... yet another boring morning :(
04:23<@SmatZ>:(
04:27-!-Aankhen`` [~hey.squid@122.162.164.197] has joined #openttd
04:30<@Rubidium>ohoh... alain found a helper
04:32<dihedral>ui
04:33<dihedral>hopefully he can write proper posts....
04:33<dihedral>and be his forum-post-writing-bitch :-P
04:34<@Rubidium>anyhow 'community please give me patches to a revision I pick'-approach went to the 'okay, I will update (read: mess around with) your patch'-approach
04:36<dihedral>hehe - and "patchers please read my posts on the community integrated patch, because it's all about YOU"
04:36<dihedral>:-P
04:36<dihedral>http://code.google.com/p/civopenttd/downloads/list <- huge fan base :-P
04:36<@Rubidium>heh, it has doubled!
04:37<dihedral>http://code.google.com/p/civopenttd/people/list
04:37<dihedral>cute
04:37<dihedral>:-P
04:37<dihedral>Rubidium, well... the number of 'maintainers' has doubled too
04:37<dihedral>considered replying in the forums "you two are cute, you should get married"
04:38<@Rubidium>the binaries seem to be too big (comparing with OTTD's binaries)
04:38<dihedral>i guess it's just because of all the added grf's :-P
04:39<@Rubidium>got no clue what kind of mess they're making of it
04:39<dihedral>i should write a patch that adds a little tiny feature, but breaks a bunch of other stuff
04:39<dihedral>:-)
04:39-!-[wito] [~wito@25.244.251.212.customer.cdi.no] has joined #openttd
04:39<@Rubidium>ah, good boy... Alain added the .svn directories
04:40<dihedral>uhh... with username i hope :-D
04:40<dihedral>cute, that really really is cute
04:40<dihedral>are they in the tar.gz too?
04:41<dihedral>yep
04:41<dihedral>+ the tar.gz is of the bin directory :-D
04:41<dihedral>+ no readme + no COPYING
04:42<dihedral>ah - there they are :-P
04:42<@Rubidium>at least the .tar.gz has readme.txt and COPYING
04:42<@Rubidium>the .7z doesn't have it
04:43<dihedral>hihihi
04:43<dihedral>what could i break? :-P
04:45<dihedral>something that crashes after 10 mins of playing :-D
04:45<dihedral>they will not get that far while testing
04:46<dihedral>well... actually - it's not worth the effort - nobody plays it!
04:46-!-williham [~wito@25.244.251.212.customer.cdi.no] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:49<@Rubidium>so, made my contribution to CIV too :)
04:49<dihedral>i can guess what it's about
04:50<@Rubidium>all my 6 points of complaint?
04:50<Doorslammer>What on Earth is all that about?
04:51<dihedral>i guessed the readme and COPYING one
04:52<Doorslammer>Community intergrated version?
04:52<dihedral>that's the name, yes
04:53<Doorslammer>What's the difference?
04:54<@Rubidium>the amount of crappiness in their process
04:54<Doorslammer>Nice
04:55<Doorslammer>Sounds like fun
04:55<dihedral>actually it is
04:55<dihedral>2 people doing work, nobody using it :-P
04:57<@Rubidium>patch packs are losing their glamour I think
05:01<@Rubidium>http://rbijker.net/openttd/misc/deprecating_the_osx_port.txt <- draft for the website
05:02<@Rubidium>argh... stupid fingers... pressing the 'up' key just before the 'enter' key; a well, who cares?
05:03<@Rubidium>anyhow, what I wanted to ask: why are people actually making 100+ part trains?
05:03<Doorslammer>Recreating the big iron ore trains of the Pilbara?
05:03<Doorslammer>Otherwise, no idea
05:04<@Rubidium>they'll load incredible slowly because they're longer than the station
05:05<Doorslammer>I'm struggling to justify anything larger than 14 in any game
05:15<dihedral>Rubidium, may i point out, X11 exists for osx ....
05:16<dihedral>compiling openttd on my mac takes about 20 mins
05:16<dihedral>:-P
05:17<@Rubidium>may I point out that OpenTTD with the SDL backend totally sucks, probably due to X11
05:17<dihedral>yay
05:17<dihedral>what's your plan?
05:17<dihedral>rephrase
05:17<dihedral>what's THE plan :-P
05:18-!-Chris_Booth [~Chris_Boo@82-32-243-15.cable.ubr11.newt.blueyonder.co.uk] has joined #openttd
05:18<@Rubidium>my plan is to ditch OSX unless someone capable shows up
05:19<dihedral>time frame?
05:19<@Rubidium>ditch as in: mark it unsupported and stop releasing OSX binaries
05:19<@Rubidium>dihedral: read it again
05:20<dihedral>"unless someone capable shows up" <- i meant that ^^
05:20<dihedral>right away?
05:20<dihedral>before 0.8
05:20<dihedral>another year / half year
05:21<@Rubidium>obviously well before the next major release
05:22<dihedral>it would be a pain to get os x support in from scratch.... i mean after ditching it
05:22-!-Progman [~progman@p57A1C2D7.dip.t-dialin.net] has joined #openttd
05:22<@Rubidium>well, morphos support is ditched too, yet most of the port still remains
05:22<@Rubidium>it's likely very broken though
05:22<dihedral>do you know what percentage of people run openttd on mac?
05:22<@Rubidium>the same will hapen with OSX
05:23<@Rubidium>dihedral: have you *read* the thing?
05:23<dihedral>parts :-P
05:23<@Rubidium>jeez... I wrote it so I didn't have to answer all those basic questions
05:23<dihedral>:-D
05:23<dihedral>sorry
05:24<@Rubidium>apparantly it needs some other text
05:24<dihedral>sadly i only run 10.4 and i am not familiar with the sdk, though i would not mind gaining that knowledge
05:25<dihedral>chances of me buying another mac / version of os x is not that high either
05:26<@Rubidium>there, a special paragraph for dihedral
05:27<Ammler>osx doesn't have a "run in previous version" mode? so you could run ottd as 10.5 in 10.6?
05:27<dihedral>you can chose the sdk when compiling
05:27<dihedral>that's about it :-P
05:28<@Rubidium>Ammler: ofcourse not; how would they be able to support PPC OS 9 in i686 OS X 10.6
05:28<dihedral>however, i was considering buying a new computer and donating my mac :-P
05:29<Ammler>well, that is something else...
05:29*dihedral likes the first paragraph ^^
05:30<Ammler>I just mean, couldn't you simply continue support for 10.5?
05:30<dihedral>there is someone who has not read any of that document
05:31*dihedral shakes Ammlers hand
05:31<TinoDidriksen>How are the OS ports done? SDL / SFML layer?
05:31<dihedral>congrats
05:31<dihedral>quarz aqua
05:32<@Rubidium>TinoDidriksen: mostly by 'virtualising' the video driver and implementing it per backend; one of the back ends is SDL, but that is very slow on OSX (up to unplayably slow)
05:32<dihedral>oh
05:33<@Rubidium>and some bits and pieces for stuff that isn't covered by e.g. SDL, though most of that is covered in a number of messy obj-C++ OSX specific files
05:34<dihedral>brb
05:34<@Rubidium>TinoDidriksen: don't think SFML is such a good candidate for OSX support though: "After several months of great work on the Mac OS X port, Ceylo has finally decided to stop maintaining it."
05:34<TinoDidriksen>Yeah, I noticed that bit...
05:34<TinoDidriksen>Is the SDL backend the OpenGL version?
05:35<@Rubidium>also neither SDL nor SFML do stuff with providing lists of which fonts are useful for a specific language
05:35<@Rubidium>and can't find much about CJK stuff either
05:36<@Rubidium>TinoDidriksen: no OpenGL; there have been some experiments with it but I haven't seen any satisfactory implementation
05:37<TinoDidriksen>Hrhm
05:37<@Rubidium>satisfactory meaning that it doesn't break like half the GUI
05:37<TinoDidriksen>'cause if one got SDL+OpenGL working, that would be graphics solved for any platform SDL works on.
05:37<Ammler>well, I don't care that much about, but it isn't clear, if you stop osx completely or just don't support newer versions.
05:38<@Rubidium>we don't support newer versions of OSX for 0.7 and if no-one steps up we just stop supporting OSX for the next major release
05:39<@Rubidium>because by then *most* of the OSX people will be using the newer version of OSX (I guess), which means supporting older versions only is going to cause more bug reports about 10.6
05:39<@Rubidium>even though it isn't supported
05:39<Ammler>that means, it is also a big hassle to keep support for osx 10.5, It looked like you made that (big) effort already.
05:40-!-thingwath [~thingie@r2ap232.net.upc.cz] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:40<@Rubidium>the 10.5 support is far from perfect
05:41<@Rubidium>Bjarni did some hacks to get it working for most people
05:47<+tokai>I wonder why apps break all the time with an new OS release under Mac OS X.
05:48<Ammler>he, then you could use the free vm for suse rpms ;-)

05:51<Luukland>Sir Rubidium, how can I ban a player on my server, by banning his unique id?
05:51<Ammler>Luukland: search for ban in the wiki
05:52<Ammler>afaik, only per IP
05:52<Luukland>>_<
05:52<Luukland>Some players use Dinamic IP
05:52<Luukland>to evade bans :(
05:52<@Rubidium>for one, unique id isn't that unique. Furthermore changing the unique id is very easy. Besides that changing an IP is quite easy too
05:52<Luukland>:P
05:52<Luukland>True true
05:53<Luukland>Can I ban on nickname? :p
05:53<Ammler>well, we "ban" per server pw :-)
05:53<Ammler>Luukland: you could with autopilot
05:54<Luukland>I just want to keep some fellow out
05:54<@Rubidium>as if a nickname isn't even easier to change
05:54<Luukland>who comes every night
05:54<Luukland>terraforming the map
05:54<Luukland>Rubidium, sometimes the obvious is the best for those idiot who think it is fun to destroy a multiplayer game
05:56<Ammler>Luukland: and always the same guy?
05:57<Luukland>yeah
05:57-!-XeryusTC is now known as Xeryus|bnc
05:57<Luukland>Wallice is his name >_<

05:59<dihedral>Luukland, firewall rules
05:59<dihedral>ban the entire network
06:00<Luukland>he has dynimic IP :p
06:00<dihedral>...
06:00<Luukland>I dont want every German to be banned :p
06:00<dihedral>...
06:00<dihedral>he has an ISP
06:00<dihedral>you merely need to ban that ISP
06:00<Ammler>if it is t-online, you ban quite a lot :-)
06:00<dihedral>i once banned all of alaska because of one person :-P
06:00<Luukland>xD
06:00<dihedral>Ammler might remember that kid
06:01<Muxy>start to ban a 255 network range
06:01<dihedral>you can whois the ip and find out about it's range
06:01<dihedral>and simply ban that by firewall rules
06:01<Luukland>lolz :P
06:01<dihedral>other idea, is to only allow people to join as spectator
06:01<Ammler>Muxy: ip changes aren't in such a low range.
06:01<dihedral>and if they want a company, raise the max-companies limit
06:01<@Rubidium>or with deep packet inspection
06:02<Muxy>said "start"
06:02<dihedral>Luukland, linux or windows?
06:02<Luukland>xD
06:02<dihedral>yeah - ok....
06:02<dihedral>linux and windows are operating systems
06:02<Ammler>but if you use dynmic ip, the isp likes to be sure, you get really another address not just +1, at least here.
06:02<Luukland>Windows my friend, with no autopilot, nor any other scripts :P
06:03<dihedral>tough luck!
06:03<dihedral>:-P
06:03<dihedral>firewall rules
06:03<dihedral>or be fast to kick / ban
06:03<Luukland>xD
06:03<dihedral>Rubidium, would it be fair to only allow clients to join as spectator?
06:03<dihedral>seeing as they can now join a company in-game
06:04<@Rubidium>another point of (counter) attack is mailing the abuse@ of his ISP
06:04<dihedral>:-D
06:04<@Rubidium>and keep doing so for each time he trashes your game; just log the time and IP address
06:04<Muxy>add to the ban function the unique_id
06:04<dihedral>Luukland, once all are connected to your server, disable udp via your firewall
06:04<@Rubidium>dihedral: why reduce freedom because only a few rotten apples?
06:05<Luukland>Yeah, players do not know that the unique_id can be changed by changing the openttd.cfg :P
06:05<dihedral>freedom of the admin or the player?
06:05<Luukland>or I am wrong here? :p
06:05<dihedral>you are
06:05<dihedral>join #openttd.black_box_theory
06:05<Muxy>advanced players probably knows that
06:06<Luukland>dihedral, my server is open play :p If I wanna keep out everyone I could also set a password :P

06:06<dihedral>company passwords?
06:06<dihedral>what about them?
06:06<Luukland>No a server pass :p
06:06<dihedral>yeah - but setting company passwords stops others from joining the companies
06:07<Muxy>luukland: do all your player set a comany password
06:07<Luukland>no of course not :P
06:07<Luukland>Some are noob :p
06:07<dihedral>ah... i see
06:07<Luukland>Others dont speak any English :p
06:07<Muxy>i have a patch who makes password mandatory
06:07<Luukland>lolz :P
06:07<Luukland>You have a patch for everything :P
06:07<dihedral>what did you eat today Luukland
06:07<Luukland>crackers with jam and appelstroom :p
06:07<Luukland>*stroop
06:08<dihedral>no drugs in that?
06:08<Muxy>i have also openttd servers to administer
06:08<Luukland>Well Muxy, I would be glad to accept your gift
06:08<Muxy>and also have some problems with some players
06:08<Luukland>What makes you think that dihedral?
06:08<@Rubidium>oh, and I vote for closing Gymnasiums in Germany; of the last 4 incidents at German schools that were covered in the NL two were Gymnasiums, so there must be a strong connection between those
06:08<dihedral>lolz :-P xD xD xD ....
06:08<dihedral>must i elaborate?
06:09<Luukland>ghe ghe, I can have fun writing here, right?
06:09<Luukland>Or must I be serious.... ...
06:09<dihedral>Rubidium, :-D
06:09<dihedral>nice one
06:09<Luukland>Muxy, are u willing to share it with me in private?
06:09<dihedral>Luukland, make the difficulty harder, will stop noobs from playing ^^
06:09<Muxy>also have some to lock particular player or lock terraforming

08:16<Terkhen>hello
08:17<Chris_Booth>i have requested a re open
08:21<Ammler>hmm, but we once did 64 tile trains.
08:21<Chris_Booth>you cant anymore
08:22<Ammler>but that isn't the bug?
08:22<Chris_Booth>its part of the bug
08:22<Chris_Booth>why should TL be limited to 50?
08:23<Chris_Booth>and why should game crash if you make tl 50.5?
08:24<Eddi|zuHause>hm... i have a file that looks like either a hard drive or partition image... how do i find out what type of file system is in there?
08:26<Ammler>limit is ok, if needed, but the crash shouldn't happen, I guess.
08:26<Chris_Booth>Ammler: why have station spread @ 64 and trainlimit @ 50?
08:27<Eddi|zuHause>and of course khexedit tries to read in the whole 30GB file...
08:27<Ammler>I don't know, why it is limited now, I thought, you made much bigger trains.
08:27<Chris_Booth>not if you have the loco at the front of the train

08:28<Chris_Booth>plus the server crash report

08:28<Chris_Booth>i know
08:28<Chris_Booth>check my image
08:29<Eddi|zuHause>i am searching for a modern version of diskedit, which could interpret harddisk data like FAT and directories
08:29<Chris_Booth>Eddi|zuHause: just run any version of diskedit from USB
08:29<Chris_Booth>at startup
08:30<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause: did you try to mount the disk?
08:30<Ammler>(or file)
08:30<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: yes, didn't work...
08:30<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: it looks like a full disk image, and to mount those you have to filter out stuff to get to the partition
08:31<Chris_Booth>Eddi|zuHause: maybe the file is one of those stupid backup files? That mac osx create and windows create something similar
08:31<Eddi|zuHause>there was some fdisk magic you could do there, but i don't remember it
08:31<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause: ask at #opensuse ;-)

09:43<Luukland>A whole article about the international distress call :)
09:45<@Belugas>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOS
09:45<@Belugas>SOS was developed from the general German radio call "SOE", with the 3 dits of an "S" easier to hear under noisy conditions than the one dit of an "E".
09:45<@Belugas>prrrrrrrt

09:50<Eddi|zuHause><Belugas> SOS was developed from the general German radio call "SOE", with the 3 dits of an "S" easier to hear under noisy conditions than the one dit of an "E". <-- it does not have this in the german article
09:50<Eddi|zuHause>it only said "SOS was introduced in an international conference in 1906 in berlin"
09:51<Eddi|zuHause>and before that, "CQD" was used
09:56<Luukland>Bla bla
09:59<@Belugas>Eddi|zuHause, i'd rather trust the article that gives an evolution, which means more researches, than the one who just says "Here we go: this is the code"
10:00<@Belugas>but all in all, it means more researchs will be required to be fairly certain about exactitude of origine

16:37<CraKinShOt>wow... the tile definitions and bits are insain. :O
16:38<CraKinShOt>bit fields might have been useful? :D
16:39<planetmaker>what do you think they are?
16:40<CraKinShOt>no I mean actual struct defined bit fields
16:40<CraKinShOt>all I see here are bytes m1, m2
16:41<CraKinShOt>in the def they are given context
16:41<CraKinShOt>(html definition on the landscape)
16:41<planetmaker>yes... but so they're still bit fields, are they?
16:41<CraKinShOt>no
16:41<@Belugas>yes
16:42<planetmaker>what would be the point of making a bloating struct around it?
16:42*Rubidium wonders how such a bit field struct would look
16:42<CraKinShOt>struct{
16:42<CraKinShOt>unsigned short threebitvalue : 3;
16:42*Rubidium also wonders how many different of them there would be
16:42*Rubidium ponders the Endianness and compiler settings implications with that too
16:43<planetmaker>:-D
16:43<CraKinShOt>well I'm new so I'm just trying to get my head around this code.
16:43<CraKinShOt>must be a true headache though if you ever wanted to add more bits to anything
16:43<@Rubidium>besides that, when was that feature introduced to C?
16:44<@Rubidium>no, it's a sport!
16:44<@Belugas>[16:38] <CraKinShOt> bit fields might have been useful? :D <--- might I suggest to first know why OpenTTD is like it is before posing a judgment?
16:44<@Belugas>it would be...less... demagogic
16:45<CraKinShOt>hehe touche.
16:45<@Belugas>and adding more bits is not required, since there are some unused bits already.
16:45<@Rubidium>However, bit members in structs have practical drawbacks. First, the ordering of bits in memory is architecture dependent and memory padding rules vary from compiler to compiler. In addition, many popular compilers generate inefficient code for reading and writing bit members.
16:46<CraKinShOt>I'm just wondering how to add some information, or whether I'd actually put it in the tile
16:46<@Belugas>depends a lot on what, why and when...
16:46<planetmaker>CraKinShOt: find the (a bit outdated) Grass on Tracks patch and have a look

17:05<CraKinShOt>are the unused bits valid as of the latest trunk version?

17:06<planetmaker>(not vice versa)
17:06<@Rubidium>it's compiling a 64 bits strgen without having _SQ64 defined

17:12<@Rubidium>the check isn't broken on itself; it just doesn't work for strgen where _SQ64 isn't defined at all ever
17:12<planetmaker>:-P
17:13<planetmaker>_SQ64 is only defined in some squirrel stuff
17:13<@Rubidium>no, config.lib defines _SQ64 for 64 bits compilers
17:14<planetmaker>maybe. But only the squirrel files have that in the source

17:20<planetmaker>right. I missed that. Wood and trees and so :-)
17:20<planetmaker>still... that shouldn't justify a compile error.
17:21<@Rubidium>true; it just shows an error in my 64 bits port effort which was made completely without an actual 64 bits OSX, so if that's the only... I did a fairly good job I'd say
17:22<planetmaker>I tend to agree.
17:22<@Rubidium>nevertheless, it's something for 'the next' OSX developer to fix; I've had it with 'stab-in-the-dark' attempts of fixing OSX bugs
17:22<CraKinShOt>ahaaa... the [grass on tracks] guy used the extended tile bits. :D
17:23<CraKinShOt>oh wait

17:41<CraKinShOt>well I'm trying to do aspects and signal feathers. simple method would need 7 bits I think.
17:41<@Rubidium>times 2, because there can be 2 independent signals on a tile
17:42<CraKinShOt>well other method is you try and hack it do its done at runtime and not in the tile
17:42<@Rubidium>oh 'plenty' of free bits ;)
17:43<CraKinShOt>so when you go to render the signal you try and workout what the state should be.
17:43<CraKinShOt>signal feathers have a max of 6 direction states
17:44<@Rubidium>the pathfinder also needs to know (some) stuff
17:44<CraKinShOt>and its determined by whether you come off the mainline and how many times you "go left" or "go right"
17:44<@Rubidium>and given that lots of screenshots are filled with thousands of signals a complex way to draw them might be unwanted
17:45<CraKinShOt>well you'd only need 1 bit extra that affected the pathfinders (the yellow signal)
17:45<CraKinShOt>the rest is purely visual
17:46<@Rubidium>didn't I read something about double yellow?
17:46<@Rubidium>or double green?
17:46<CraKinShOt>one step at a time. :D
17:46<CraKinShOt>yeah and flashing yellows
17:46<CraKinShOt>:(
17:46<@Rubidium>even so, those double yellow signals seems to be something British
17:46<CraKinShOt>well I've had a look at US signals and german ones
17:46<CraKinShOt>they have something simular
17:47<CraKinShOt>its just a little different
17:50<CraKinShOt>hmm
17:51<CraKinShOt>what I really need then is some kind of hash table of signals
17:51<CraKinShOt>and seperate the extra signal information from the tiles
17:51<CraKinShOt>so you don't need to store all that information for every single tile
17:52<CraKinShOt>But can't see having to look up the hash table every time you needed to draw a signal would be fast
17:54<CraKinShOt>then again, you're only rendering the tiles which need rendering.
17:55<CraKinShOt>and not every signal needs the feathers, only the ones with junctions ahead
17:57<CraKinShOt>See this is why I like irc, real life doesn't have a log when you talk to yourself. :D
17:57<@Rubidium>you could look to TTDP's way of having off-map information for signals
17:58<CraKinShOt>thats the patch right?

18:13<Lakie>Assembly isn't so bad, though I must admit I prefer 'higher' level langages.
18:13<Lakie>Thats probably true.
18:14<Zuu>Woho! PAXLink does no longer keep to many bus stops in towns anymore :-) Bus stops with to low usage and rating are removed. And whenever needed new bus stops should be built.
18:14<CraKinShOt>Well its commented, at least
18:14<Dreamxtreme>nice !
18:14<Lakie>Commented? You can comment in assembly, ever looked at any of my code? ;)
18:14<Dreamxtreme>i remember the days buses used to go out of the town and get lost for no apparent reason

18:15<@Rubidium>Lakie: no idea how they leak into TTDPatch's problems section though
18:15<Lakie>I guess the register, it goes to the main page?
18:15<Lakie>And then they don't think to scroll down or something.
18:15<Lakie>when they register*
18:16<@Rubidium>Lakie: but the major part of TTDP isn't your commented assembly but nice commentless assembly
18:16<Lakie>Yes.
18:16<Zuu>Hmm, a bus stop that never gets visited in one town gets increased rating when the other feeder bus stop gets served..
18:17<Lakie>Most devs seem to know assembly too well and don't comment at all. :(
18:17<Lakie>There is something to be said for having it as a requirement to get code into the project.

18:17<CraKinShOt>I'm amazed the patch is still going on after Openttd
18:17<Lakie>There are a few features yet to be ported.
18:18<Lakie>Enhanced Tunnels for one
18:18<CraKinShOt>^ was looking for that the other day
18:18<@Rubidium>Lakie: feel free to implement it in a sane (non hack) way :)
18:18<Lakie>Its surprising how much smaller some juctions got.

18:19<Lakie>Hehe, I might, but first I'd have to take some time to learn how OpenTTD works and its code.
18:19<Lakie>Probably easier than second guessing which code isn't and is modified multieple times though. x_x
18:19<CraKinShOt>well someone hacked the z-depth (I think) and tried doing underground (and above ground rails)
18:20<Lakie>Number of times my hooks failed because someone already replaced that code was surprisingly high

18:20<Lakie>I don't think that'd work so well in TTDPatch, I wasn't too keen on it in Loco.
18:21<Lakie>Not unless you can hide everything above hieght x
18:21<Lakie>Otherwise everything gets obsured
18:21<CraKinShOt>well thats what this guy did (in openttd)
18:21<CraKinShOt>apparently work stopped though
18:21<Lakie>Heh.
18:21<Lakie>Well
18:22<Lakie>I imagine one problem developing with OpenTTD is keeping up with its development.
18:23<Lakie>The pace is very quick, hard to keep up with it, if you fall behind or something changes you were using.
18:23<@Rubidium>and the many refactors :)
18:23<Lakie>Yeah
18:23<CraKinShOt>Well there was another topic (and project) that mentioned they wanted a seperation of bridges from tunnels... or something to that end. And they said they could'nt do it without a big change to the base code
18:23<CraKinShOt>... and that this subway project stopped because of the same problem
18:23<Lakie>Tunnels and bridges are still thought of as portals
18:24<Lakie>I remember looking at the code a while back.
18:24<@Rubidium>yup, nice black holes
18:24<Lakie>Something Belugas was working on.
18:24<Lakie>Hehe
18:24<Lakie>Well, TTD as an engine doesn't really have a concept of 3d.
18:24<Lakie>Atleast not at tile level.
18:25<CraKinShOt>yes, I read somewhere that one of the devs tried to add a z-array to tiles
18:25<CraKinShOt>or something to that effect
18:25-!-Progman [~progman@p57A1C2D7.dip.t-dialin.net] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:26<@Rubidium>yes, those have been tried in different variations; all considerably slower :(
18:26<Lakie>:(
18:26<CraKinShOt>how did RollerCoster tycoon do it?
18:26<Lakie>Well, you start having to check a tile several times (for different z hieghts)?
18:26*Rubidium thinks TTDP's biggest problem is the fact that there's no release manager
18:26*Lakie knows not
18:26<CraKinShOt>it seemed like an updated version of the TT engine to me
18:26<Lakie>That was Josef, but he's so busy now it doesn't happen.
18:27*CraKinShOt grabs a cold one
18:27<@Rubidium>and now the amount of work (updating changelog etc) to release a new beta is just enormous
18:28<Lakie>Yeah
18:28<Lakie>Well, not so much for 2.5
18:28<Lakie>But for 2.6 it'd be beyond massive...

18:29<@Rubidium>that's why I update the changelog for the next major release every few weeks :)
18:31<Lakie>It keeps it more manageable, although don't you get like 200-500 commits a week?
18:32<@Rubidium>almost 2000 commits since the branch (a bit over 6 months ago)
18:32<@Rubidium>@calc 2000/26
18:32<@DorpsGek>Rubidium: 76.9230769231
18:33<Lakie>Thats not so bad
18:33<@Rubidium>@calc 168/77
18:33<@DorpsGek>Rubidium: 2.18181818182
18:33<Lakie>What about over all?
18:33<Lakie>(trunk and braches)
18:33<Eddi|zuHause><Rubidium> even so, those double yellow signals seems to be something British <-- german advance signals (H/V system) show double green or double yellow
18:33<Lakie>Not as bad as the 230~ in 2 weeks of my group project for uni. >_>
18:33<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: there seem to be at least a dozen different systems
18:34<Eddi|zuHause>(for "next main signal is green/red)
18:34<@Rubidium>Lakie: those 2000 commits include the branches (that are in svn)
18:34<@Rubidium>which is only the 0.7 release branch
18:34<Eddi|zuHause>(they can also show yellow+green for "next signal is green with speed limit)
18:34<Eddi|zuHause>i know of 5 different (incompatible) systems used in germany
18:34<Lakie>Heh, fair enough
18:35<@Rubidium>~80 commits in the 0.7 branch
18:36<CraKinShOt>So really, to keep everyone happy any multi-aspect system would need to be flexible, so newgrf could be used for different locations...
18:36<CraKinShOt>nightmare
18:37<@Rubidium>oh, that calls for a callback :)
18:37<CraKinShOt>it really would have to be seperated from the tile
18:37<@Rubidium>http://wiki.ttdpatch.net/tiki-index.php?page=Callbacks#New_signals_sprite_drawing_callback_146_ :)
18:38<DaleStan><CraKinShOt> nightmare
18:39<@Rubidium>Keith: try connecting the track to the station :)
18:40<@Rubidium>(in other words, you're missing 2 track pieces)
18:41<Keith>Ah...can't see that...will try again
18:41<@Rubidium>Keith: press X
18:43<Lakie>Ah, thats the transparency hotkey

18:44*Lakie being from TTDPatch keeps hitting t and wondering why nothing goes transparent. ...
18:44<Keith>And if you excuse the pun....my trains are now quite chuffed
18:44<Keith>Thanks
18:44<@Rubidium>Lakie: then read the manual (wiki) :)
18:44<Lakie>Yeah
18:45<Lakie>I noticed most hotkeys have been rebound, and the speed up has moved since I last used OpenTTD also...
18:45<@Rubidium>e.g. http://wiki.openttd.org/Hotkey
18:45<@Rubidium>then you must've used speed up a really long time ago, or you must have been using debug and release builds
18:46<Lakie>I never manage to run debug releases for some reason.
18:46<Lakie>It'd be a huge file and crash pretty much instantly.
18:47<Lakie>I think the last time I used the speed up hotky OpenTTD was around 0.5.x
18:49<Lakie>And most of the 0.6 life time I used to compile it, but now I'm lazy and don't have most of the things I need to.
18:50-!-Keith [~Keith@41.145.240.138] has quit [Quit: Bye for now!]
18:51<Lakie>Errr, I meant compiles not releases.
18:54<CraKinShOt>oh wow, those callbacks look like a nightmare too
18:56<CraKinShOt>can you define a new callback method? or do you have to hack the existing ones?
18:56<Eddi|zuHause>well, callbacks are rather easy to provide, then the newgrf authors have to deal with it :p
18:57<DaleStan>Most of the callbacks are pretty tame -- return one number in 0..7FFF.
18:57<DaleStan>146 is ... something else entirely.
18:57<Lakie>I was going to say, I don't remember callbacks looking all that complex.
18:58<Lakie>Err...
18:58<Lakie>Isn't there actually a no use zone for TTDPatch?
18:58<Eddi|zuHause>a what?
18:59<Lakie>Numbers one doesn't use as not to break backwards compatibility with grfs which only support 1 byte callbacks
18:59<DaleStan>Yes. All callbacks other than 10..3F with a low byte of 00..3F are forbidden.
19:00<DaleStan>CraKinShOt: Grepping the source for Callback should give you a good clue. Probably something like result = GetCallback(This, that, otherthing);
19:00<Eddi|zuHause>so valid ranges are x40..xFF
19:00<Lakie>Not quite.
19:00<Lakie>0x140 - 0x7FFF
19:00<DaleStan>You're confusing callback IDs and result range.
19:01<Lakie>Oh, sorry.
19:01<Eddi|zuHause>x being 01 to FF
19:01<Lakie>Yeah
19:01<CraKinShOt>I've only had a quick look, I assume it lets the GRF request (or set) information from the game.
19:01<Lakie>It requires code to process that 'request'.
19:01<DaleStan>Backwards. The game requests info from the GRF.
19:02<CraKinShOt>right that makes more sense. So the game asks the GRF how it should render {something}?
19:03<CraKinShOt>I'm just wondering whether you can tack on new stuff onto that
19:03<Eddi|zuHause>well, the grf will provide a list of sprites somewhere, and the callback would give the index within that list
19:03<DaleStan>More often, "What is the new capacity for this vehicle?" "What color should this vehicle be?" "What string should I display under $CIRCUMSTANCE?"
19:03<Lakie>I guess the sprite var in action0 could be interpreted that way, isn't it more like, the game askes the grf for which sprite it should use?
19:04<Lakie>(Or group of sprites), my understanding of how grfs are internally handled is quite vague though
19:04<Eddi|zuHause>then you need to expose some variables to the callback, like the signal state
19:04<DaleStan>The sprite request is a callback in general programming terms, but not in GRF/NFO terms.
19:04-!-Mks [~mks@c83-176-234-98.cust.tele2.se] has joined #openttd
19:05<Eddi|zuHause>well, probably would need introducing an action1/2/3 chain for signals
19:06<DaleStan>Already there. The 2/3 part, anyway.
19:07<CraKinShOt>Well just in general terms, if I wanted to add on several additional signal states the mechanism could handle it?
19:08<CraKinShOt>from the looks of the signal callback its all set in stone
19:08<DaleStan>Callbacks can handle anything that can is computable with neither loops or recursion.
19:08<DaleStan>nor*
19:08<Eddi|zuHause>CraKinShOt: you would pass that state information in soem newgrf variables, which the callback would resolve in a varaction2

19:10<DaleStan>What is defined is set in stone. What is undefined may be defined in any useful way that does not duplicate information.
19:10<CraKinShOt>right okay, just so long as I know its posible, is enough for now. I can properly research later
19:11<CraKinShOt>I can code the mechanism with set graphics for the time being then add on general support with grf
19:13<DaleStan>I recommend that your research start with using the current NFO spec to do something productive.
19:14<DaleStan>Trying to define /any/ new NFO thing is not recommended for anyone. At all. But it's more likely to go well if you've either used NFO or contributed substantially to an NFO parser.
19:16<Lakie>Hmm... I'll be honest, looking at it when I was writing the newobjects code was a completely different ball game to writing nfo, DaleStan.
19:16-!-Dred_furst [~Dred@cpc3-pool3-0-0-cust999.sotn.cable.ntl.com] has joined #openttd
19:17<Lakie>That said, I'd only really wrote vehicle nfo which is quite different from the house style nfo I was reusing and adapting.
19:19<Lakie>I suppose it wasn't too bad adding callback 36 and some vars for newobjects looking back on things.
19:20<CraKinShOt>I think its a case of "the documentation makes it look more complicated than it really is"
19:23<Lakie>Rubidium: only other feature I miss from TTDPatch would be the custom bridge heads, but I imagine thats like enhanced tunnels, come up with a way of doing it which isn't hacky?
19:25<CraKinShOt>hmmm
19:25<CraKinShOt>Action 6 looks interesting
19:26<DaleStan>Accursedly so, in fact.
19:27<CraKinShOt>No good then?
19:27<DaleStan>No good for what?
19:28<CraKinShOt>Well its cursed (bad) so people shouldn't use it?
19:28<Eddi|zuHause>"come up with a way of doing it which isn't hacky?" <- that's about it
19:28<DaleStan>It's like a goto. Use when required.
19:29<DaleStan>I was actually referencing the Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times."
19:29<Eddi|zuHause>the last attempt on custom bridge heads failed on signals
19:30<DaleStan>There are times when 6 is the correct way to get the job done. But it makes life difficult for everyone trying to generate or statically parse NFO.
19:30*DaleStan is away now.
19:31<CraKinShOt>Well thinking about it, probably not needed for my goal anyway. Better to simply have all the cases stored in the grf, rather than modifying a sprite.
