08:01-!-Eoin [] has quit [Quit: kthxbai]
08:02<Yexo>you could edit the *4 there for example to *3
08:06-!-Guest423 [~George@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:06<Eddi|zuHause>that's only for the original acceleration model...
08:07<Eddi|zuHause>Train::UpdateSpeed(), uint accel <-- this seems like a more appropriate place
08:08<Eddi|zuHause>2897: uint spd = this->subspeed + accel;
08:09<Eddi|zuHause>as this applies to both acceleration models
08:11<Eddi|zuHause>this formula has an implied factor: v_new = v_old + a * delta t
08:11<Eddi|zuHause>where delta t is the time one tick (?) takes
08:11<Yexo>did you look at ground_vehicle.cpp already (GetAcceleration() ?
08:12<Eddi|zuHause>yeah, skimmed it
08:12<Eddi|zuHause>have seen that part of the code many times
08:13<Eddi|zuHause>not entirely sure why there is a /2 in the end when accelerating, but not when braking

10:45<Eddi|zuHause>Chuck Norris has abused priests as a child
10:45<orudge_>It took me a moment to parse that sentence
10:46<Eddi|zuHause>might be more ambiguous in simplified english grammar
10:47<Eddi|zuHause>you can have it in german grammar: "Chuck Norris has as child priests abused", if that helps you ;)
10:48<@peter1138>that would be stupid grammar
10:48<@peter1138>it makes no sense
10:48<orudge_>oh no, I understood it, my brain just didn't quite "get" the joke
10:49<orudge_>because, y'know, it's slow that like that, and it isn't even 10am yet

12:37<elho>hmm, i might be blind, but on the caption below the picture sais "Notice the use of one-way signals", but AIUI the one-way path signals have that red/white sign attached (as in the other uictures) and i can not spot any of those in that picture :o

12:44-!-Kurimus [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:46<frosch123>elho: that is a very old picture. during development the one-way signals had yellow bars, as those sprites already exisited, while the current ones were not yet drawn
12:46<frosch123>feel free to update the image :)
12:47<frosch123>(the rightmost signals in both driving directions are one-way)
12:48<frosch123>oh, and the opposite signals on those tracks are not needed
12:49-!-|Jeroen| [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
12:56<elho>ah, i see. i was wondering why there (also in other pictures) where the yellow bars despite the signal dialog not showing them, but thought that was how it looks :)
13:02<elho>is there a way to get around the train-length gap
13:02<elho>err, no

13:05-!-George [~George@] has joined #openttd
13:06-!-George is now known as Guest570
13:06<elho>rather a way (as there are no intermediate pb signals) to make trains drive closely one after another through path sections? ie. with a block signal on every second tile they are closely packed, a pbs section would make the following trains wait until the first cleared it (assuming other paths blocked by trains from the other direction), right?
13:12-!-Guest553 [~George@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:20-!-Yeya [~Yeya@] has joined #openttd
13:27<Yexo>just place the pbs also closer together
13:40<elho>i thought that would mean trains blocking junctions if they stop at one that is too close after it
13:41<elho>but thinking about it, it should at least work where the number of available paths is not lower than before

15:23-!-Kurimus [] has quit []
15:25<elho>but that seems to be the hard part
15:27-!-Wasila [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
15:39<elho>and sound.cpp seems to set 11025 Hz for old sounds, sdl_s.cpp however has 44100 Hz hardcoded
15:40<elho>(at least as default)
15:43<orudge_>elho: you can edit the frequency in openttd.cfg, I believe
15:43<orudge_>should you want to for some reason
15:45<elho>orudge_: that was the first place i looked, but did not find any setting looking like it (searched for sound,audio,sample,rate,hz,44100,11025)
15:45<orudge_>you could also manually resample the TTD sounds to 44.1KHz so they sound "nicer", and then create your own sounds package, but that might be a slightly more complicated way of doing things :)
15:45<orudge_>elho: hmm, well
15:46<elho>but i just found a commandline argument, just not yet how to specify the parameters with it:
15:46<elho> -s drv = Set sound driver (see below) (param bufsize,hz)
15:47<orudge_>bufsize = the buffer size, typically 4096 or 8192 or so
15:47<orudge_>hz = frequency, typically 44,100
15:47<elho>no, i meant the syntax
15:48-!-ctibor|spi [~quassel@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
15:48<elho>but trial and error revealed: sdl:hz=11025
15:49<elho>and the config has a sounddriner setting, so i'll try sticking that in there...

16:05<Eddi|zuHause><elho> is there a way to get around the train-length gap <-- the typical solution is make the exit of the junction double tracked, and merge them after the first signal
16:06<Eddi|zuHause>or triple, if your trains are longer

16:16<elho>Eddi|zuHause: ah, i see. now that i have 1.0 backported and running without crackling sound, i can start to actually play with them a bit. :)
16:18-!-Chris_Booth [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
16:21<elho>are there also yapp variants of mainline prioritisation/acceleration lines?
16:21<Ammler>using trainlength gap is just a recommendation, you don't need to do it that way...
16:21<elho>i do not want deadlocks either ;)
16:22<Eddi|zuHause>no, path signals aren't really useful for priorisation
16:23<Ammler>and you can simply combine path signals with blocksignals to make prios
16:25<elho>just wish there was a smart priorisation thingy, tuning those setups to train length and speed is so tedious...
16:26<Ammler>if you use trainlength signal gaps, not really :-)
16:27<elho>that defeats the whole idea of packing trains densely to maximise line usage ;)

16:36<elho>is the ttd savegame support still incomplete in 1.0.1 or does "data integrity error" actually mean that my old savegames are currupted?
16:38-!-TheMask96 [] has joined #openttd
16:38<Ammler>you should be able to load every save from earlier revisions inclusive tto/ttd save games (also ttdpatch should be possible)
16:44-!-Fast2_ [] has joined #openttd
16:45<Eddi|zuHause>ttdpatch is not guaranteed to work, if certain advanced features are used

16:49<Eddi|zuHause>... didn't have the desired effect :(

16:56<elho>no, no patch or anything, that was plain old tt i had back then. its *.sv1 files i have - i copied them (from a diskette i guess :P) to my ~/.openttd/save years ago to find them not supported. now with the tto support i though i'd take a look

17:23<sashimi>oh i'm not talking about fancy 3D
17:24<sashimi>if only nice looking 2D
17:24<sashimi>simcity 2K looked pretty nice in it's time
17:24<Eddi|zuHause>to the original question: no, the 32bpp graphics might look nice in places, but they are not finished, and they are _very_ troublesome to install

17:40<elho>hmm, thinking i'd start with something easy trying pbs, i built the dual track as in the wiki (TTBOMK ;)), but it does not work as i expected: shouldn't train 85 overtake train 84?
17:41<Eddi|zuHause>overtaking doesn't work very well, try to avoid it...
17:41<Eddi|zuHause>and you likely have a track penalty problem
17:41<Eddi|zuHause>2 reverse signals + 2 track changes are penalised worse than 7 tiles of reserved track
17:43<Eddi|zuHause>and your train looks reversed...
17:43<elho>ah, changes are penalised, that's good. (the wiki somewhere claimed that the setup is bad as trains would keep alternating :P)

17:59-!-a1270 [] has quit [Quit: a1270]
18:02<Eddi|zuHause>elho: yes, they will do that
18:06<Eddi|zuHause>the problem is that there is no way to tell "only overtake if train ahead is more than 30km/h slower"
18:10-!-Polygon [] has quit [Quit: Flieht, ihr Narren!]
18:20<elho>well that's actuassy of no concern for me, the lev4 is strong enough to do a constant 643km/h and that is why i am not really interested in overtaking ;)
18:21<Zuu>Another thing you want with overtaking is that the trains stay in the overtake "lane" long enough that the back of that train pass the front of the overtaken train, or the overtakning train will cut the path for the overtaken train.
18:22<Zuu>Some pre-signal magic can maybe implement that, but the question is how ugly will it look.
18:22<elho>sensor field and connection lines (that can be laid everywhere) to do easier priorisation than laying feedback tracks with pre-signals would be what i'd need. (or smart trains that automatically accelerate so that they hit the gap in the mainline traffic ;))
18:23<Zuu>Eg, what is needed is a gap acceptance model. :-D
18:23<Zuu>Which happen to be a major part of my master thesis :-p
18:23<elho>yeah, that ugliness is what my sensor/signalling cable idea tries to circumvent :)
18:26<elho>uh, i just had an idea how the priorisation could be enhanced to approach the gap detection with a lot more ugliness :D
18:27<Terkhen>good night
18:27<Zuu>A gap detector + accelertaion area can be quite easily be setup with pre-signals. However you will need to configure it for the current speed limits of your trains.
18:28<Zuu>+ acceleration etc.

18:28<elho>have a long acceleration line, so that every train is doing top speed, after that have a whole array of priorisation setups, each having different length lanes that merge the main line, the feedback lines connecting to different points of the main line determining which of them the train takes depending on the position of the gap on the hain line
18:29<Zuu>Sure, and blow up a couple of towns in the process.
18:30<elho>Zuu: i've been doing that (the simple one) and using sharp bends to force trains leaving the station at different speeds back to a similar level

18:31<elho>i've ever since wished for a "buy out town" option that avoids the bribe 3-4 times, save / reload if detected cycle :P
18:32<Zuu>Not sure if it works the same in OpenTTD physics but IRL, with lower speeds the minimum gap length in time will decrease.
18:32<elho>(yes, i know there's magic bulldozer, but that's cheating ;))
18:33<Zuu>(that is lowering the speed on the main-line)

18:36<elho>when taking acceleration of the merging train into account?
18:37<elho>(and braking, of course, the instant-stop signals in openttd aren't too realistic ;))
18:42<elho>thinking about it, the path reservation is
18:43<elho>bah, my enter key is too enthusiastic :P
18:44<elho>thinking about it, the path reservation is a good foundation speed limiting signals could build on, ie. go gradually slower if the way is blocked anyway instead of rushing to do a full stop

19:11<elho>what is the deal with the option for trains to stop as the near/middle/far end, does that have any other effects than how it (de-)accelerates?

19:17-!-DDR [] has joined #openttd
19:18<Eddi|zuHause>marginal, mostly eyecandy
19:19<Eddi|zuHause>i suggest setting the default to "middle"
19:22<elho>yes, that seemed like a sane default to me, too
19:23<elho>and then manually chaning it to near for orders to non-roro stations
19:24<Eddi|zuHause>people have been suggesting, for terminus stations, far end is the best
19:30<Yexo>"near end" being the most efficient for terminus stations would be more intuitive
19:31<Eddi|zuHause>the issue was trains unblocking the junction faster when using the far end
19:31<Eddi|zuHause>plus, it's more realistic
19:35<Yexo>but when the train leaves the station it'll block the exit longer if you set them to middle/far end
19:35<Yexo>unless you have signals in front of each platform
19:36-!-devilsadvocate [~devilsadv@] has joined #openttd
19:37<elho>i have no junctions on terminus stations, those are all point to point feeders
19:37<elho>so near end could still be good with these, i guess

20:05<tartanterrorist>guys, whats the criteria to open the monorail option? a certain amount of money or a certain amount of time?

20:11<Eddi|zuHause>monorails appear after a certain date (if you don't use newgrfs, most disable monorail)
20:11<Eddi|zuHause>then, you have to click and hold the rail icon, to get to the monorail menu
20:11<tartanterrorist>ah cool
20:11<tartanterrorist>you know what date?
20:11<tartanterrorist>or year
20:11<Eddi|zuHause>short after 2000, i believe
20:12<Eddi|zuHause>maybe 2010
20:12<SmatZ>monorail appears in ~1999
20:12<SmatZ>maglev appears in ~2019
20:12<SmatZ>in temperate climate
20:13<tartanterrorist>bah, 9 years away, how do i cheat and make it available now?

20:19<elho>hmm. is tramway availability encoded in savegames and kept when using it as a scenario?
20:20-!-Fuco [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
20:20<SmatZ>tramway availability is per-company
20:20<CIA-2>OpenTTD: smatz * r19957 /trunk/src/ (6 files): -Codechange: remove VLW_WAYPOINT_LIST
20:20<CIA-2>OpenTTD: smatz * r19958 /trunk/src/ (station.cpp waypoint.cpp): -Codechange: move common code from Waypoint and Station destructors to BaseStation destructor

20:21-!-Eoin [] has joined #openttd
20:22<SmatZ>that holds at least for rails - when one company is offered experimental monorail, it can build monoral track
20:22<SmatZ>while other companies can't
20:23<elho>is there another way, to just play a completely new game (settings and tram wise ;)) on a map from an old savegame?
20:23-!-Uresu [~Wes@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
20:24<SmatZ>I think - rename game to .scn, open in SE, use "reset landscape"
20:24<SmatZ>roads and trams could stay
20:24<SmatZ>some, at least
20:24<elho>reset was what i did not do before, let's try...
20:26<elho>(as it was a 1st Jan 1950 savegame without anything cbuilt)
20:29<elho>nope, still no trams
20:31<Yexo>ddi you actually add a tram newgrf in the game? not just in the main menu?
