07:54<planetmaker>andythenorth, first we'd have to teach us building rivers ingame. Something which is easily solved but I don't know anymore why it wasn't wanted back then
07:54-!-HerzogDeXtEr [~Administr@88.130.171.73] has joined #openttd
07:54<andythenorth>can we make it possible for rivers to be built in game?
07:54<planetmaker>very easily
07:54<Redirect_Left>isn't that a just a big canal?
07:54<andythenorth>it's a canal with funny sprites :)
07:54<andythenorth>and no locks
07:55<planetmaker>andythenorth, I even have a patch for that somewhere...
07:55<Ammler>wwottdgd/2
07:55<planetmaker>exactly
07:55-!-theholyduck [~holyduck@77.106.159.237] has joined #openttd
07:55<Eddi|zuHause>... i have this old river generation patch lying around
07:55<planetmaker>updating should be fairly simple
07:55<andythenorth>did anyone try river generation algorithms?
07:55<planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause, you, too? ;-)
07:55<Eddi|zuHause>but it depends on rivers on half-slopes
07:55<planetmaker>andythenorth, afaik only Eddi and myself tried
07:55<andythenorth>I wondered if it would be fun for an AI....just start at the coast and work upwards, trying to take turns every so often
07:56<planetmaker>sounds like the wrong concept for river generation.
07:56<planetmaker>It's not an AI task. It's a generic game task
07:56<Eddi|zuHause>also it needs improvements wrt. getting stuck at minor or major obstacles
07:56<planetmaker>using an AI doesn't really offer an advantage there IMHO
07:57<planetmaker>yeah... slopes are a bitch. That's where the assertions strike
07:57<planetmaker>and path finding. That's where it starts to look funny under certain conditions
07:58<Eddi|zuHause>well, i just started somewhere, and went until there was a sink in the tgp-heightmap
07:58<Eddi|zuHause>but this way, rivers tend to end on seemingly flat terrain
07:58<planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause, yeah, that results in lakes
07:59<planetmaker>If you walk up it works, too, but rivers might be quite short...
07:59<andythenorth>in some countries canals are major civil projects (rather than commercial projects), so a canal-building AI could be fun
07:59<andythenorth>hmmm
07:59<andythenorth>highways also
07:59<andythenorth>AI for major infrastructure projects?
07:59<andythenorth>we'd need a way to send it money via taxes :P
07:59<planetmaker>http://openttdcoop.org/files/pm/patches/ <-- andythenorth there are my old patches
08:00<planetmaker>andythenorth, no need for that. Just make it build routes with a vehicle preference. And proper algorithm. Then those things will happen automatically
08:00<andythenorth>capitalism :P
08:00<planetmaker>Look at current road AIs. They build huge road networks.
08:00<andythenorth>I'm surprised by all you Europeans being so free-market :P
08:00<planetmaker>Teach them to build highways and you're set
08:01<planetmaker>highways as opposed to the normal roads they congest now

08:29<planetmaker>looks ok, though you use no random triggers nor random bits (you mask out everything)
08:29<planetmaker>or I don't understand it. Rather likely
08:31-!-George3 is now known as George
08:32<planetmaker>I'd try ...C1 8D 03...
08:33<planetmaker>or whatever reason you want to call the randomizer, change the 2nd byte I quoted
08:34<George>random-triggers 00 - when build
08:34<planetmaker>is that so?
08:34<George>randbit 00 is bit 0 is first bit
08:34<planetmaker>1st bit is 01
08:35<planetmaker>it's a mask. And I don't see where you get the 00 = when build information from
08:35<George>or untriggered bits, set only at the time of purchase
08:36<George>(from wiki)
08:36<planetmaker>link?
08:36<George>http://wiki.ttdpatch.net/tiki-index.php?page=RandomAction2
08:36<planetmaker>the link you gave doesn't stat that.
08:36<planetmaker>0 01 Vehicle gets new load of cargo (only after it was empty)
08:36<planetmaker>1 02 Vehicle enters a depot and is serviced
08:36<planetmaker>2 04 The consist has unloaded all cargo
08:36<planetmaker>3 08 Any vehicle of the consist receives cargo
08:36<planetmaker>4 10 Callback 32 returned 1
08:36<planetmaker>^ those triggers are available. No "upon build"
08:37<George>random-triggers
08:37<George>This is a bit mask of triggers which cause re-randomizing. Normally, any matching trigger causes the graphics to be randomized again, but if you add 80 to the bitmask, the re-randomizing only happens if all triggers have occurred.
08:37<George>
08:37<George>Trigger bits are feature-specific, see below.
08:37<George>
08:37<George>randbit
08:37<George>For versions before 2.0.1 alpha 30, leave this at 00. It doesn't quite work the way intended (it was supposed to allow independent random chains, but currently everything is re-randomized at the same time, thereby defeating this mechanism).
08:37<George>
08:37<George>Since 2.0.1 alpha 30, only those bits that actually get triggered will be re-randomized. Prior versions always re-randomized all bits. This will make it possible to have independent sets of bits for independent triggers (or untriggered bits, set only at the time of purchase). Setting randbit determines the first bit to be re-randomized, as well as basing the random graphics on. The total number of bits used is the 2-logarithm of nrand below (e.g., for nrand
08:37<planetmaker>yes?
08:37<planetmaker>I don't read your conclusion from that
08:38<George>it says "or untriggered bits, set only at the time of purchase"
08:38<planetmaker>yes, ok
08:38<George>that means that on purchase the randomisations always happens
08:38-!-theholyduck [~holyduck@77.106.159.62] has joined #openttd

08:42<George>why?
08:43<planetmaker>you want to start with the 1st bit :-)
08:43<planetmaker>and it's a bit mask
08:46<George>wiki says "Setting randbit determines the first bit to be re-randomized"
08:46<George>value 00 means start from first bit

08:47<planetmaker>If not you might actually say what _does_ bother you

08:55<George>planetmaker: yes, but the problem is that how can I test the whole chain?
08:55<George>I supposed value C1 would mean the first one in a row, but it does not work

09:58<theholyduck>Doorslammer, well it could work in theory, if albeit a bit impractical both from the point of view of drag, not to mention making the transition smooth
09:59<theholyduck>and finally, what if loads of people wants to board the train?
09:59<Doorslammer>Oh, I don't think that's the biggest worry here
09:59<Doorslammer>Ah, you got it there with the last point
09:59<theholyduck>not to mention
09:59<theholyduck>LEAVE the train
10:00<Doorslammer>I bet their current catenary requirements have scuppered it already too
10:01*theholyduck wishes the norwegian train system was more reliable
10:01<theholyduck>there has been only minimal maintenance on it for years apparently.
10:01<theholyduck>and now its falling appart everywhere
10:02<Doorslammer>The opposite has an even funnier ring to it
10:03<theholyduck>the only good part is the relativly cheap 1st class wagon and the silent wagon
10:03<theholyduck>because they're almost always empty
10:03<Doorslammer>Not long ago, a suburban EMU got caught up in some wires
10:03<Doorslammer>Public and media reaction to it?
10:03<theholyduck>where as the rest of the trains can be way overcrowded
10:03<Doorslammer>"Why on earth did this happen?"

10:12<theholyduck>Doorslammer, there was a huge train related accident in norway this year actually
10:12<Doorslammer>Was there?
10:12<theholyduck>Doorslammer, some trains at a station came loose or something
10:12<theholyduck>at the top of a hill
10:12<theholyduck>and went down sevral km of hills
10:12<Doorslammer>Crikey, in Norway?
10:12<theholyduck>untill derailing and flying straight through a dock
10:12<theholyduck>through houses, cars, and what not
10:12<theholyduck>Doorslammer, yeah
10:13<Doorslammer>How on earth can something like that happen in 2010. Did we suddenly fly back to 1889 or something?
10:14<Doorslammer>Something similar in South Africa too
10:14<theholyduck>Doorslammer, well the breaks didnt work
10:14<theholyduck>apparently
10:14<theholyduck>Doorslammer, they did manage to route it off the trafficated lines

14:04<@Belugas>aqnd right now, they are just invisible
14:06<Wolf01>if you draw a transparent overlay, like it works for bridges, houses.. the roads should look like transparent too, but we need to add the overlay only when the transparency is active
14:07<Wolf01>there is no need to draw the standard tile + the transparent road tile when the road is "solid"

14:08<COLT>are ther any Bananas admin ??
14:08<Wolf01>it might require a little change here and there, but I think it's easy to do
14:09<COLT>I have big problem
14:10<Ammler>COLT: https://secure.openttd.org/bugs/index.php?project=4
14:10<Ammler>(if they don't answer here)
14:10<COLT>its not a bug
14:11<COLT>One of our members quit and we don't have contact with him. We want to delete old version of Polish Set from bananas but we dont have account passwords etc . is possible to delete Polish Set 1.5a from Bananas by the admin.
14:12<Ammler>you can't delete
14:12<COLT>I'am Polish Set developer
14:12<Ammler>but you could upload a new version, then the old isn't available anymore
14:12<COLT>then how to remove it from bananas
14:12<COLT>i write
14:12<Ammler>or hide it with min/max version
14:12<@Belugas>Wolf01, it "feels" decent, i'd say
14:14<Ammler>they do delete only, if the upload was against the TOS
14:14<COLT>"One of our members quit and we don't have contact with him. We want to delete old version of Polish Set from bananas but we dont have account passwords etc" thats a problem
14:14<Ammler>that is no reason :-)
14:14<Ammler>but you could ask them to move the set to an other account

14:16<COLT>what 3 different

14:17<COLT>i make new account to upload new version of Set
14:17-!-heffer [~felix@static-87-78-98-150.netcologne.de] has quit [Quit: heffer]
14:17<Ammler>COLT: you should ask them to move it to you
14:17<Ammler>so you can update that
14:18<Ammler>so the old set will automatically be hidden
14:19<COLT>i wrote post on forum maybe that helps :)
14:19<andythenorth>evening
14:20<Ammler>I would recommend to use "set account" if you are team, but TB doesn't like that.
14:21<Ammler>COLT: or mail to rubidium|truebrain@openttd.org
14:21<planetmaker>COLT: you make yourself an account and ask one of the bananas admins nicely whether they give your account also access to the set
14:21<planetmaker>Though not user-configurable, it's possible for more than one account to have access to an entry
14:21<planetmaker>One thing no single account can do is to delete an old entry.
14:22<planetmaker>And that's something which the TOS state: you agree that things are allowed to be kept eternally on bananas
14:22<planetmaker>good evening andythenorth :-)

14:25<Rubidium>planetmaker: they changed the GRF ID, so it's considered a new NewGRF
14:25<COLT>yes i chnged id to can upload
14:26<planetmaker>Rubidium, always? IIRC FIRS and 2cctrainset have already updated old versions by changing the GRFID
14:26<Ammler>colt the only reason?
14:26<Ammler>else it would still be compatible?
14:27<planetmaker>but might be that at the same time the max version for the old ones was limited to something reasonably low
14:27<Rubidium>planetmaker: don't know whether updating checks for the same NewGRF ID
14:27<Ammler>same entry can have different ID, but not same ID different entries
14:27<planetmaker>Rubidium, I think it doesn't
14:27<planetmaker>(which I consider sensible)
14:27<planetmaker>If the author knows what they do ;-)
14:28<Rubidium>ah, yes... looking at the DB that seems possible
14:28<Ammler>COLT: why do you ask here, if you do anyway what you want?

14:30<Rubidium>the "removing it from the list that will be shown in-game" vs "removing it completely so it can't be found by GRF ID + md5 checksum anymore"
14:30<Rubidium>the former can be done, the latter won't be done

14:34<planetmaker>:-) good question. May you modify stuff from the old author? ;-)
14:35<Rubidium>if the copyright is assigned to the same entity there should be no problem at all
14:36<Ammler>Rubidium: I know, it is possible, I just wonder, how they manage such a complex license ;-)
14:38<Ammler>what is a legal entity?
14:39*andythenorth is a legal entity
14:39<planetmaker>Ammler, many things can be. Also a bunch of people
14:39<andythenorth>should vehicle reliability be hidden?
14:39<Wolf01>Belugas, so... it might be a good idea?
14:39<planetmaker>anything which can be sued basically
14:39<andythenorth>or which can hold copyright (for example)
14:39<andythenorth>or enter into a contract
14:39<Ammler>andythenorth: single persons is easy
14:40<planetmaker>andythenorth, "can enter contracts" is - afaik - the important thing
14:40<@Belugas>Wolf01, i've not said that. I said it felt decent, mostly talking about the arguments

14:43<andythenorth>interesting
14:43<andythenorth>planetmaker...I was going to tidy up your newgrf GUI layout, but ChillCore got there first :)
14:44<andythenorth>it looks ok, I can't read the buttons though :O
14:45-!-COLT [c3745e5b@ircip2.mibbit.com] has quit [Quit: goodnight]
14:45<frosch123>the details panel is far too small on the horizontal arrangements. it could never take widgets for paramters
14:47<andythenorth>frosch123: from what I can see, most people don't care about that
14:47<andythenorth>:)
14:47<andythenorth>the lists are the main thing for most of the players who've commented
14:48*andythenorth wonders though
14:48<frosch123>because there is nothing much with parameters yet :p
14:48<andythenorth>also....
14:48<andythenorth>the people commenting here and on the forums are serious power users of the game. They know the grfs, and they care about things like MD5 sum and the ordering of newgrfs
14:49<andythenorth>meanwhile....I watch the bananas download counts for newgrfs. They are *way* out of proportion to visits to the newgrf forums
14:50<andythenorth>I reckon it's very easy to ignore the experience of all those players who just get the game and only use bananas

14:54*andythenorth doesn't have the hump but is a bit baffled by the GUI justifications
14:54<andythenorth>if the lists are so important why keep making them so small? It's bizarre.
14:54<andythenorth>it's like when some of you tell me the proper way to do something with code and I just say "no thanks, I just want a dirty hack" very frustrating :P
14:55<frosch123>whats small about them?
14:55<planetmaker>frosch123: andythenorth I honestly don't care much about whether Alberth's vertical list arrangement or my horizontal one gets implemented
14:55<frosch123>you can always make them to not open in the smallest size
14:55<planetmaker>if the vertical one by Alberth is more future proof: quite fine with me
14:56<andythenorth>Let's all fall out about it ! Fork Fork!
14:56<andythenorth>Or not
14:56<planetmaker>and yes, I see that the detail information is too small. Chillcore's mockup actually shows it clearly. The 2cctrainset description is truncated in his view
14:56<andythenorth>:D
14:56<frosch123>planetmaker: if i got it right, due to nested widgets it does not matter at all, as it can be easily changed :p

14:57<frosch123>andy has nice button arrangements btw :)
14:57*andythenorth waves bye bye to difficulty
14:58<planetmaker>yes, he has
14:58<planetmaker>they're in my local repo already moved to the adv. settings - but now the (old) difficulty window has many undefined strings :-P
14:58<planetmaker>so it has to go ;-)
14:58<andythenorth>I think the 2 list, info below version can be tidied up. I might try. My taste is irrelevant to solving the problem.
14:58<planetmaker>andythenorth: we forgot one thing in the main GUI: the highscore :-)
14:58<andythenorth>ha
14:58<frosch123>planetmaker: i do not care about difficulties, but i guess it also requires trashing the highscore. which it do not care either :p
14:59<andythenorth>stupid highscores :)
14:59<frosch123>however, i am not the only one
14:59<planetmaker>frosch123: it doesn't require that. Just making it accessible from the main menu will hopefully work
14:59<frosch123>isn't highscore per difficulty level?
14:59<planetmaker>hm... I don't know :-)
15:00<frosch123>i might be mistaken as well :)
15:00<planetmaker>So far I only moved the settings ;-)

15:02<frosch123>yes, the highscore is per difficulty level

15:02<planetmaker>that doesn't really bother me :-)
15:03<frosch123>same would hold for newgrfs (i guess only ecs vectors use it)
15:03<planetmaker>hm?

15:04<frosch123>but i guess, if someone complains then due to removing the highscore or their nice "hard" setting or so
15:05<planetmaker>well. I'm thinking of possibly re-adding that then under the game generation menu
15:06<planetmaker>With a revised list of settings which constitute difficulty levels
15:06<planetmaker>Maybe some kind of indicator in the adv. settings which shows which settings are affected
15:06<planetmaker>And only have the difficulty choice obvious on a 2nd 'new game' tab. Jointly with the amount of towns and industries or so
15:07-!-Devedse [~Devedse@cable-213-34-232-56.zeelandnet.nl] has quit [Quit: Ik ga weg]
15:07<planetmaker>So: 1st tab: Only map settings. 2nd, 3rd tab: newgrf + AI, 4th tab: difficulty + access to adv. settings
15:08<planetmaker>+ town#, town names
15:08<planetmaker>those things which don't belong strictly to map in the smallest sense
15:08<planetmaker>or that tab is just the diff. settings and the adv. settings displayed below... hm
15:08<planetmaker>sounds nearly like a plan ;-)
15:09<planetmaker>yes, I like talking to myself :-P
15:12<frosch123>i guess one highscore for all settings should be enough
15:13<planetmaker>I guess so, too
15:13<frosch123>there is no point in distinguishing them by difficulty, as there are more important settings like map size :p
15:13<planetmaker>:-) yup
15:14<frosch123>but likely newbies need some kind of highscore until they learn that they have to build 200 busstops or so :p
15:14<planetmaker>hehe
15:14<planetmaker>actually that assumption isn't true anymore ;-)
15:14<planetmaker>though bus stops help.
15:15<frosch123>i guess highscore should be on main menu
15:15<planetmaker>yes.
15:15<frosch123>iirc it is there for most games
15:15<planetmaker>I think changing the 'difficulty' button to 'highscores' is what I like to do :-)
15:15<frosch123>would keep the layout :p

15:17*Rubidium wonders what the point of adding two more settings to the map generation window are; there are already too much things to choose from for most people
15:18<planetmaker>Rubidium: you mean those patches I posted?
15:19<Rubidium>yep
15:19<planetmaker>those two are two things which one really might want to change from game to game - unlike most adv. settings
15:19<planetmaker>driving side depends upon whether I chose db set or japanese set. As do town names
15:19<andythenorth>planetmaker: resp. towns + industries etc. on a 2nd tab.....that's my conclusion too
15:19<planetmaker>The other settings can remain
15:19<planetmaker>andythenorth: yes, that will come
15:19<Rubidium>but then they're more related to NewGRF settings
15:19<andythenorth>hence something like 'gameplay settings' or 'world settings' or some such name
15:20<planetmaker>Rubidium: in a way
15:20<planetmaker>As stated there, they're a first step
15:20<planetmaker>In a 2nd step I'd like to move them to a separate tab in the new game dialogue
15:20<Rubidium>also the language changes are a big mess due to breaking the alignment
15:20<planetmaker>hm :S
15:21<Rubidium>maybe doing it in the reverse order is better
15:21<planetmaker>what in reverse order?
15:21<Rubidium>first making the separate tab with some stuff, then moving the game options to that tab
15:21<planetmaker>ah
15:22<planetmaker>yeah, maybe an idea
15:22<andythenorth>he could be right :)
15:24<planetmaker>making tabs is the difficult part of all this anyway :-)

15:43<andythenorth>why?
15:43<planetmaker>though the amount of games we use it is small

16:30<andythenorth>hmmm
16:30<andythenorth>creating complex field layouts with var 43 is a no no
16:31<frosch123>you cannot maintain any layout after the industry is removed, except you store it earlier in the animation state or so
16:31<planetmaker>andythenorth: I decided to rather download inkscape :-P+
16:31<frosch123>however, you also have random bits :)

16:32<andythenorth>frosch123: random is fine......but clue for how to store in the animation state?
16:33<frosch123>you have a animation trigger for the construction stage. you can then store some value as animation frame, which you can use as "persistant" storage if you do not need animations
16:34-!-Chrill [~chrischri@h-5-149.A212.priv.bahnhof.se] has joined #openttd
16:34<frosch123>e.g. check surrounding tiles for field dimensions and then store the relative position inside the field in the animation stage
16:35<andythenorth>cunning
16:35*andythenorth saves that info
16:35<Chrill>Is there anyone here fluent in German?
16:35<nighthawk_c_m>yepp
16:35<andythenorth>the Germans probably are

17:14<planetmaker>but then it's a mockup only ;-). So inkscape saved the parts which overlap, too
17:15<Zuu>Indeed, those extra pixels does hardly matter.
17:23<planetmaker>http://img.openttdcoop.org/images/genworld2.png <-- still too big, but with the newgrf selection dialogue open
17:24<Ammler>no "next" button?
17:24<Ammler>how do you go forward?
17:24<Zuu>Click at the tabs at the top?
17:24<Ammler>that isn't logical
17:25<Zuu>Depends on where you come from.
17:25<Ammler>or obvious at least :-)
17:26<Ammler>well, I know no "wizard" working that way, do you?
17:26<Ammler>tabs might be fine to indicate where you are
17:26<Zuu>Depends if you want to make it like a wizard or more like something with several tabs.
17:26<Ammler>but then you need a button start game
17:26<Ammler>on every tab
17:27<Zuu>It's at the bottom, always vissible
17:27<planetmaker>Ammler: clicking on tabs is quite logical to me
17:27<Ammler>ah, "Generate World" is a button?
17:27<planetmaker>but next and previous could go next to the generate button in the bottom
17:27<Zuu>The tab-book widget would end not at the bottom but say 60 pixles up from the bottom of the window.
17:27<planetmaker>yes
17:27<Ammler>no, all fine then :-)

17:29<planetmaker>hm, yes
17:30<andythenorth>I am pushing the two list thing to see if it works
17:30<andythenorth>(side by side lists I should say)
17:30<planetmaker>andythenorth: IMHO in your mockup the tabs are not clearly enough visible as tabs
17:30<andythenorth>nope they aren't very 'tab'
17:31<andythenorth>I'm not happy with those.
17:31<planetmaker>you may notice that I just used Alberth's newgrf GUI ;-)
17:31<Ammler>dunno, if "tab" is openttdish
17:31<Ammler>buttons looks nice
17:31<Zuu>Old advanced settings dialog had it.
17:31<planetmaker>my mockup rather targeted the gui as a whole with an inset for the others

17:31<planetmaker>and what Zuu says
17:32<planetmaker>says? sais?
17:32<Ammler>yes, those were buttons like andy made
17:32<Zuu>Depending on if you by 'tab' refer to the kind of gui or making the tabs appear visually as tabs.
17:32<andythenorth>I think on balance I like Alberth's newgrf gui....but tell me, when you have one list above the other, what do the buttons 'move up' and 'move down' imply?
17:32<planetmaker>:-)
17:32<andythenorth>and arrows don't help either :|
17:33<andythenorth>As a newgrf author I like the big 'info' box in Alberth's design. More space for me :)
17:33<andythenorth>to put words in :)
17:33<planetmaker>andythenorth: I guess those 8 lines which you have in your mockup are quite sufficient in most cases, too
17:33<planetmaker>hm.. or?
17:33<planetmaker>or one just gives it a few lines more
17:33<andythenorth>there are some missing
17:33<Zuu>Especially if a parameter GUI is made.
17:33<andythenorth>well the lists could be shorter
17:33<Zuu>Then you don't have to explain them in words.
17:33<andythenorth>it's scalable

17:45<Zuu>andythenorth: Not sure if it is indented, but the online content button is missing as well as the reload button in your last mockup.
17:46<andythenorth>oops
17:47<Zuu>As well as the set parameters button.
17:47<Zuu>and toggle pallete
17:47<Zuu>Though if a parameter gui is made, the palette could be seen as a parameter and do not need a special button.
17:48<andythenorth>I thought it looked nice and simple :)
17:48<Zuu>Just as all AIs have the same setting in common (days to wait before the AI starts)
17:48<Zuu>the same _first_ setting*
17:48<Zuu>Hehe :-)
17:48<andythenorth>online content is applicable across AIs, maps (heightmaps) and newgrfs?
17:49<Zuu>Yep, it could be placed at the bottom but then you should probably link it to the online content dialog with all types enabled.
17:49<andythenorth>hmm
17:50<andythenorth>why do we still need reload? Why doesn't reload happen when I open this tab?
17:50<andythenorth>or is there a good optimisation reason?
17:50<Zuu>Or make that a hidden ctrl feature and by default only show the types related to the current tab.
17:50<Yexo>andythenorth: because a reload takes time, I don't want openttd to rescan all newgrfs when I open a different tab on the newgame window

17:54<andythenorth>640px in dutch with two lists becomes challenging :)
17:54*andythenorth has an idea
17:55<andythenorth>current window has 'parameters' and 'set parameters'
17:55<andythenorth>also 'palette' and 'toggle palette'
17:55*andythenorth sees a simplification
17:56<planetmaker>small arrows next to the "palette" word? ;-)
17:56<andythenorth>yup
17:56<andythenorth>like advanced settings
17:56<andythenorth>and there must be something we can do for parameters
17:57<Zuu>For parameters, take a look on how it works for NoAI. But I guess you've seen that dialog :-)
17:58<Zuu>I guess you need in the grf spec to name the settings and give them upper/lower limits.
17:58<andythenorth>Zuu we might need a whole load of stuff to do with strings and bit maps
17:59<andythenorth>but for now I'd be happy to just have a 'set parameters' button in a convenient place
17:59<Zuu>Initially we can leave the parameter guis as they are right now.
17:59<andythenorth>exactly
17:59<Zuu>Having them in a separate window later will probably be okay.
17:59<Zuu>Or it can be integrated at a later point.
18:00<Yexo>Zuu: http://devs.openttd.org/~frosch/texts/StaticGRFInfo.txt <- newgrf spec for extra information about the parameters
18:00<andythenorth>there's no layout that will fit everyone's wishes into <640px :)
18:00<andythenorth>so a separate window for parameters is fine
18:00<andythenorth>nothing wrong with separate windows :) It's the flow through them that matters :o
18:00<Zuu>And for reference (obviously not for you Yexo, but maybe for andy) here is how the parameters work in NoAI: http://wiki.openttd.org/AI:AIInfo#Settings
18:01-!-JostVice [~jostvice@85.136.129.22.dyn.user.ono.com] has left #openttd []
18:02<Zuu>In this case I even think it could be good to have a separte window for settings/parameters of NewGRFs/AIs.
18:03<Yexo>I agree, showing the active / available AIs in one window would be nice (same as the new newgrf gui)
18:03<Zuu>Perhaps make the "make active" button double-height and add the parameters button adove/below "make inactive"?
18:04-!-theholyduck [~holyduck@77.106.155.114] has quit [Quit: Forlater kanalen]
18:06<Zuu>Also nice to have a consistant gui between newgrfs and ais. Though there will be some minor differences. Such as being able to add multiple AIs of the same kind. But those are still small enough that it doesn't stop the posibility to use fairly similar guis.

18:41<Yexo>andythenorth: AIs also need to be rescanned if you put a new AI in the ai/ directory
18:41<andythenorth>hmmm
18:41<Yexo>it could be there is currently no button for that in the gui, but there is a commandline function IIRC
18:41<andythenorth>where is the button for that?
18:42*andythenorth wonders if rescan button can be deprecated
18:42<Yexo>AIs are rescanned automatically after downloading some via the online content, and also every time a game is started/loaded
18:42<Eddi|zuHause>the key above tab opens the command line
18:42<andythenorth>the 'rescan' button seems like one button too many
18:43<andythenorth>although I do actually make use of it often
18:43<Yexo>why do you use it?
18:44<andythenorth>hmmm not sure
18:44<andythenorth>occasionally I manually add or delete a newgrf
18:44<Yexo>it's a useless button imo, the only case you need it if you manually put some grf in the data directory and want to use it without restarting openttd
18:45<Yexo>but then there is a console command for it
18:45<andythenorth>is there one now? Does reload_newgrfs also rescan?
18:45<Yexo>isn't there?
18:45<andythenorth>not sure right now
18:46<Yexo>apparently not
18:46<andythenorth>ho hum

18:47<PeterT>andythenorth: looks nice
18:47<PeterT>color change <3
18:47<andythenorth>I would like to eliminate the rescan button, and I think the buttons for setting newgrf palette / parameters are confusing
18:47<andythenorth>one button 'configure newgrf' would be better
18:47<Yexo>what about adding a scrollbar for the info panel for those newgrfs with a lot of text?
18:47<andythenorth>can't have three vertical scrollbars in a window
18:48<andythenorth>but otherwise....yes :)
18:48<Yexo>something for alberth to work on support for that :)
18:48<andythenorth>how often does the palette need to be switched?
18:48<andythenorth>I've never done it
18:49<Yexo>only if you use base graphics with a windows palette and a newgrf with the dos palette (or the other way around)
