02:26<andythenorth>hmm
02:26<andythenorth>none of my grfs build
02:27<Rubidium>new grfcodec/nforenum on a BE architecture?
02:27<andythenorth>just about 5 minor arsey things
02:28<andythenorth>I didn't copy grfcodec over
02:28<andythenorth>I can't build it because I don't have boost
02:28<andythenorth>I haven't symlinked nmlc
02:28<andythenorth>other crappy stuff
02:28<andythenorth>I knew I should have rsynced /bin and other such

02:43<andythenorth>hmm
02:43<andythenorth>so where should I symlink things grfcodec etc from?
02:43<andythenorth>it's apparently bad to do it from /bin
02:44<andythenorth>should I use /usr/bin?
02:46<andythenorth>or /opt?

02:52*andythenorth permits himself first "yay" of today
02:52<andythenorth>each day should have >1 "yays" in it
02:52<andythenorth>a zero-yay day is a bad day
02:52<andythenorth>but a day that has too many "yays" is a day that contained too many problems
02:52<duckblaster>about 5 is good?
02:53<andythenorth>3-7 is probably about right
02:53<andythenorth>20 would certainly be too many
03:08<andythenorth>hmm

03:11<Wolf01>hello
03:12<andythenorth>planetmaker: hello
03:13<andythenorth>can you run the buildout for nml?
03:13-!-bodis [~bodis@cpc3-ando3-0-0-cust781.15-1.cable.virginmedia.com] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
03:20<@planetmaker>me?
03:20<@planetmaker>I never tried so far
03:21<@planetmaker>how would I do that?
03:21<@planetmaker>or you mean... the CF?
03:28<andythenorth>planetmaker: in your nml checkout - run 'python bootstrap.py' then 'bin/buildout'
03:28<andythenorth>it's all failing horribly for me :P
03:29<@planetmaker>uhm... that'll install NML somewhere, won't it?
03:30-!-pugi [~pugi@dyndsl-091-096-043-094.ewe-ip-backbone.de] has joined #openttd
03:30<@planetmaker>hm, no.
03:30<@planetmaker>it can't
03:30<andythenorth>this is a fun morning :(
03:30<andythenorth>bootstrap.py is broken
03:30<andythenorth>PIL won't install
03:31<andythenorth>setuptools can't be upgraded on Snow Leopard
03:31<andythenorth>Snow Leopard apparently ships with a broken version of python 2.6.1
03:31<@planetmaker>regressions work here
03:31<andythenorth> do you recall how you got PIL to install?
03:32<@planetmaker>http://paste.openttdcoop.org/show/405/
03:32<andythenorth>apparently compiler flags are set wrong - OS X is trying build PIL for PowerPC
03:32<andythenorth>(according to the internet)
03:32<@planetmaker>port install py-pil or something
03:32<andythenorth>hmm
03:32<andythenorth>planetmaker: you have the output I want :P
03:33<andythenorth>so it's clearly possible
03:33<andythenorth>you have 10.6.8?
03:33<@planetmaker>yup
03:33<andythenorth>and python 2.6.1?
03:34<@planetmaker>2.6.6
03:34<andythenorth>ah

04:27*andythenorth ponders
04:28<andythenorth>there is *zero* chance that we'd trust a newgrf author to mark some parameters as "safe to change during game" (via a14)?
04:28<andythenorth>for example, running & purchase costs
04:28<andythenorth>or climate availability of vehicles
04:29<Rubidium>climate availability is not safe by definition I'd say
04:29<Rubidium>after all, it allows removing vehicles from a climate
04:29<andythenorth>only from the buy menu
04:29<andythenorth>afaik
04:29<andythenorth>it's the route I use to deprecate vehicles without breaking savegame
04:29<@planetmaker>climate availability only removes it from purchase list afaik
04:30<andythenorth>but would we trust newgrf authors to mark up some items as 'safe'?
04:30<Rubidium>so it depends on the implementation; I assumed you'd just jump over the 'not for this climate' vehicles
04:30<@planetmaker>no. People err
04:30<@planetmaker>Rubidium: not action7. The availability property
04:31*Alberth ponders a newgrf test environment
04:31<andythenorth>I figured it would be unsafe :P
04:31<@planetmaker>0x06
04:31<Rubidium>planetmaker: to me it'd be easier to just set the 'all climate available' bits for all vehicles and then jump over the vehicles that are not 'selected' for a particular climate
04:32<andythenorth>then you'd break savegames :P
04:32<@planetmaker>^^
04:32<andythenorth>and people would tell you off
04:32<@planetmaker>it's easy but not update-safe ;-)
04:33<@planetmaker>same as it was easy for isr to re-shuffle tileIDs from somewhere between 0.6 and 0.8
04:33<@Alberth>it is easy and wrong :)
04:35<@planetmaker>I try to be cautious with the word 'wrong' - but it's definitely not "best practise"
04:35<Rubidium>there you see that a 'noob' in NewGRF coding can easily make something that'd break, but he saw that andythenorth marked it as safe so he does as well. Because... if the experienced dev says it's safe, then the same feature should be safe in his NewGRF as well.
04:35<andythenorth>that's what I figured :P
04:35<andythenorth>I am still poking at things that cause you to have to restart your game
04:35-!-Juo [~Juo@cpc11-acto2-2-0-cust244.4-2.cable.virginmedia.com] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
04:36<Rubidium>though it would be interesting to know what things 'you' (plural) would like to be able to change
04:37<andythenorth>'safe' things <- that much is obvious
04:37<@planetmaker>- update to newer version of newgrf
04:37<andythenorth>^ assuming action 14 says it's ok
04:37<@Alberth>add new grfs that were forgotten
04:37<@planetmaker>yes, that's what we have comp. version for
04:37<andythenorth>Alberth: too complicated
04:38<@planetmaker>forgotten as in 'missing vehicles' mostly
04:38<andythenorth>update is valid - especially where the newgrf has bugs
04:38<andythenorth>adding can never happen
04:38<andythenorth>unless the spec is changed
04:38<andythenorth>disable disabling, then talk about it :P :)
04:38<@planetmaker>andythenorth: updating the version is the same
04:38<@Alberth>or we detect 'bad' things in some way
04:38<@planetmaker>FIRS for example queries TTRS version and changes behaviour accordingly
04:38<andythenorth>true. only if the author is toxic though
04:39<andythenorth>and if it's FIRS :P
04:39<@planetmaker>thus it's of the same level of un-safe-ness
04:39<andythenorth>good call
04:39<andythenorth>hmm
04:39<Rubidium>well... ;)
04:39<Rubidium>then just make the test environment for NewGRF changes ;)
04:39<andythenorth>so those examples are same as every other time we debated it
04:39<andythenorth>safe things should include:
04:39<andythenorth>- run & buy costs
04:39-!-perk11 [~perk11@broadband-77-37-203-211.nationalcablenetworks.ru] has joined #openttd
04:40<andythenorth>- climate availability
04:40<@planetmaker>palette
04:40<andythenorth>actually none of the above
04:40<andythenorth>newgrf A can check the value of parameters in newgrf B?
04:40<Rubidium>yep
04:40<andythenorth>in which case all bets are off
04:41<andythenorth>so no deal
04:41<andythenorth>end of discussion? :P
04:41<@Alberth>perhaps it is easier to start at the other end, what can you do that is always safe?
04:41<andythenorth>nothing
04:41<Rubidium>no, only one answer to the discussion
04:41<andythenorth>changing *anything* is like lighting the fuse on a bomb
04:42<andythenorth>no newgrf author can determine that their grf is 'safe'
04:42<andythenorth>because it is (almost) indeterministic
04:42<andythenorth>due to combination of other grfs
04:42<@Alberth>duh, that's what happens if you give people atomic bombs to play with
04:42<Rubidium>"refactor OpenTTD so it can load a second set of NewGRFs; after that use a heuristics whether anytime changed for the 'bad'. If it is proven to not cause anything bad: allow making the changes."
04:42<Rubidium>s/anytime/anything/
04:42<andythenorth>or - similar - handle disabling better
04:43<andythenorth>which might require same approach
04:43<andythenorth>i.e. dry-run the change; if any newgrf disables itself, forbid the change
04:43<Rubidium>andythenorth: but... that might not be 'for the bad'
04:43<@planetmaker>that might be the only call we really have, a dry-run sandbox for testing
04:43<@Alberth>Rubidium: refactor such that we create a 2nd map from the first one, copying/creating things from scratch?
04:44<andythenorth>hmm clone pattern
04:44<Rubidium>e.g. if one such NewGRF is a translation NewGRF. Disabling that because the new version of the translated NewGRF contains said translation is not bad.
04:44<andythenorth>forbid starting / updating any game with disabled newgrfs
04:44<@Alberth>but we have zillions of global variables :(
04:44<Rubidium>Alberth: you don't need to do it for the whole map
04:44<Rubidium>just load the spec variables.
04:45*andythenorth has like...5 line idea
04:45<@Alberth>hmm, what about making a kind of contract with the newgrf? "I will behave in this and this way" ?
04:45<Rubidium>if vehicle length changes: return bad, if vehicle is removed: return bad, if ...
04:45<andythenorth>currently the direction we're heading is that the community will start turning on newgrf developer tools
04:46<@Alberth>it still needs checking :(
04:46<andythenorth>which means I have to start handling invalid bug reports again
04:46<@Terkhen>good morning
04:46<@Alberth>moin Terkhen
04:46<@planetmaker>hello Terkhen
04:46<andythenorth>and the suggestion to forbid starting game with disabled grfs was nixed by some people here who want to use same grf config in every game
04:46<andythenorth>what if starting with disabled grfs was forbidden, unless developer tools are on
04:47<@planetmaker>that is IMHO not sufficiently justified
04:47<@Alberth>andythenorth: disabled newgrfs are not a problem. they are clearly labeled as 'i am not doing anything'.
04:47<andythenorth>I guess we disagree about them being a problem
04:47<andythenorth>I find them a problem
04:48<andythenorth>I can't prove everyone does :P
04:49<andythenorth>hmm
04:49<@Alberth>I can see the case that you want the same configuration every time. It takes ages to make it all working properly. I invariably forget some newgrf which I of course discover only after starting
04:49<andythenorth>what happens if I update my newgrf with bananas, then load a savegame
04:49<andythenorth>and grf A is updated, so grf B disables itself?
04:49<andythenorth>do I lose my game?
04:50<@Alberth>save game itself has the version
04:50-!-Juo [~Juo@cpc11-acto2-2-0-cust244.4-2.cable.virginmedia.com] has joined #openttd
04:50<@Alberth>so it loads the old one
04:50<andythenorth>k
04:50<@Alberth>(which is why people want to be able to update their newgrfs in the game)
04:50<andythenorth>and if I manually delete the old one?
04:51<@Alberth>then you have a missing newgrf file which you can pull from bananas, or the game doesn't run (I think, I'd have to test that)
04:52<@Alberth>but here you get the compability stuff into play, which I know nothing about :)
04:52<@planetmaker>The game will load a compatible NewGRF
04:53<@planetmaker>the one with the newest version - or a random one with the newest version
04:53<@planetmaker>only if no compatible newgrf is found it'll fail to load
04:53<andythenorth>in which case - boom
04:53<@planetmaker>not fail but resist ;-)
04:53<andythenorth>grf A is modified in some subtle way, grf B disables itself
04:53<@planetmaker>of course, can happen
04:54<andythenorth>FIRS will probably do that with TTRS if I try hard enough
04:54<@planetmaker>it *should* not be possible - or it's a min_version error in TTRS
04:54<andythenorth>*because* you've provided TTRS in a proper way
04:54<andythenorth>:P
04:55<andythenorth>I reckon I could code this case if I could be bothered :P
04:55<@planetmaker>version downgrade is never considered compatible
04:56<andythenorth>recently someone else suggested a solution I thought was nice
04:57<andythenorth>if there are disabled grfs when starting game, show the newgrf window before map gen
04:57<andythenorth>giving player chance to address issue
04:57<andythenorth>dunno if that's necesary or sufficient
04:57<@Alberth>or even possible
04:58<@Alberth>ie how do you decide about disabledness based on climate at that point?
04:58<andythenorth>you know the climate?
04:58*andythenorth is guessing now
04:59<@planetmaker>well, on map generation one does
04:59<@planetmaker>though... you only know about disabled newgrfs after the map is initialized - as newgrf initialization is part of it
04:59<@Alberth>depending on when "before" exactly is
04:59<@planetmaker>^
04:59-!-jpx_ [~Joonas@a91-156-233-43.elisa-laajakaista.fi] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
04:59<andythenorth>even if possible, seems like a sticking plaster
04:59<@Alberth>but I fear it is after the map is already generated
05:00<@planetmaker>I'm not sure... you need to know newgrfs during map creation
05:01<andythenorth>removing 'disable self' from newgrf spec is unworkable
05:02*Alberth believes the newgrf spec needs rigorous cleanup before even trying to solve things in the program
05:02-!-frosch123 [~frosch@frnk-4d008d34.pool.mediaWays.net] has joined #openttd
05:02<andythenorth>Alberth: godwin :P
05:02<andythenorth>that's where this conversation always goes
05:02<andythenorth>and yet we've established that cleaning up newgrf spec is also unworkable :P
05:02<andythenorth>for legacy support
05:02<andythenorth>so we're stuck
05:03<@Alberth>there are 2 ways out of it.
05:03*andythenorth thinks of a third :P
05:03<@Alberth>1. defuse newgrfs
05:03<@Alberth>2. treat newgrfs as unsafe in the program
05:03<andythenorth>2 is the current situation
05:03<@Alberth>no, they are treated as 'safe', that's why accidents happen
05:04<@Alberth>ie we trust what you say
05:04<andythenorth>but we've put a lock on them
05:04*andythenorth just put a child lock on the cupboard where the mains fuses are
05:04<duckblaster>new spec, different format, but keep newgrf support?
05:04<duckblaster>as legacy
05:05<andythenorth>same issue would reappear, but we'd incur *lots* of work to get there
05:05<@Alberth>'keep newgrf as legacy' means you have to build & maintain 2 openttd programs. Unworkable
05:05<andythenorth>doesn't solve the issue
05:05<andythenorth>it's valid for a newgrf to disable itself
05:05<andythenorth>and therefore this is conceptually unresolvable
05:05<duckblaster>keep loader part only?
05:05<duckblaster>or is it too intergrated
05:06<@Alberth>it is *completely* integrated
05:06<andythenorth>hmm
05:06<duckblaster>rewrite openttd in c++ and object oriented system?
05:06<@Alberth>openttd just copies the data straight out the newgrf, and uses all data as trusted values
05:07*andythenorth doesn't particularly *want* to allow things like adding newgrf. The current locked-down situation is ok-ish
05:07<@Alberth>duckblaster: how does that solve things?
05:07<andythenorth>but the user experience sucks
05:07<duckblaster>so newgrf is just a memory dunp?
05:07<duckblaster>exact copy of memory?
05:07<@Alberth>in a bit nicer format, but mostly
05:08<@Alberth>ie some wrapper stuff is around it to know where to put what
05:08<andythenorth>you can rewrite it in Whatever Framework Is Flavour Of The Month, but the issue will persist
05:08<@Alberth>so it is not straight memory dump
05:08<duckblaster>"in a bit nicer format"? so it goes through something to get frmo disk to memory?
05:08<duckblaster>insert new loader there
05:08<andythenorth>the only solution I can see is proper domain
05:08<andythenorth>each newgrf declares explicitly which features it wishes to change
05:09<@Alberth>duckblaster: loading is not the problem, trusting the data is
05:09<andythenorth>only one newgrf can make changes to that features
05:09<andythenorth>newgrfs have to bid in an auction
05:09<andythenorth>(negotiation)
05:09<duckblaster>what are the things that crash?
05:09<andythenorth>so only one newgrf can change houses
05:09<andythenorth>only one newgrf can change industries
05:09<andythenorth>only one newgrf can change cargos
05:10<@Alberth>duckblaster: everything can crash if you feed it values you trust blindly
05:10<andythenorth>vehicles are pooled, so probably safe
05:10<duckblaster>with sensible values i mean
05:10<duckblaster>if it's changed mid game
05:10<andythenorth>even with this explicit domain idea, the problem persists
05:10<andythenorth>basically I think OzTrans actually is doing it write
05:10<andythenorth>write / right /s
05:11<andythenorth>OnlyOneTrueNewGRF
05:11<andythenorth>instead of newgrf list, you get to choose one newgrf
05:11<andythenorth>that's it
05:11<andythenorth>problem solved
05:11<duckblaster>not going to work
05:11<duckblaster>firs + fish + aviator + trains
05:11<@Alberth>it is at least clearing up the mess of finding out what newgrfs you need to use :p
05:12<andythenorth>duckblaster: you don't get that choice in the new system
05:12<duckblaster>with good newgrfs, if they are changed mid game, what could cause a crash?
05:12<andythenorth>you pick OzTrans.grf
05:12<andythenorth>or andythenorth.grf
05:12<andythenorth>or pikka.grf
05:12<andythenorth>or opengfx+.grf
05:13<andythenorth>that's it
05:13<@Alberth>duckblaster: the problem is how to recognize 'good'
05:13<andythenorth>the crash problem is a straw man
05:13<andythenorth>so the game crashed. that sucks. but you have autosave
05:13<duckblaster>firs, fish, aviators, other big popular ones
05:14<@Alberth>what are the units for airport noise level?
05:14<andythenorth>what's annoying is playing a game for an hour before discovering it's broken due to changed (or missing) newgrfs
05:14<@Alberth>ie what is a 'sane' value for that property?
05:14<duckblaster>why would it crash when switching mid game? what would cause the crash?
05:14<duckblaster>missing vehicles?
05:15<andythenorth>so options
05:15<andythenorth>(1) ditch newgrf spec, try a new one (same problem re-emerges)
05:15<andythenorth>(2) do nothing, it's all ok
05:16<andythenorth>(3) allow only one newgrf to be loaded
05:16<andythenorth>(4) grftopia
05:16<duckblaster>(5) make a newgame?
05:16*Alberth is very tired of this discussion
05:17<andythenorth>he

05:23<@planetmaker>if the first "hide_sprite" returns "true" then the 2nd will always return "true", too, thus be hidden
05:24<andythenorth>oh
05:24<andythenorth>you're trying to make the perfect layout with transparency on?
05:24-!-Alexdddd [5693478b@ircip2.mibbit.com] has joined #openttd
05:24<@planetmaker>no. the "hide_sprite" doesn't deal with transparency
05:24<andythenorth>oh
05:24<@planetmaker>it allows to decide "show yes/no" depending on parameter

05:42<andythenorth>unreferenced sprite blocks mostly
05:44<Hirundo>andythenorth: those errors (warnings, actually) are relatively harmless, as those unused sprites aren't copied to the actual grf

05:52<frosch123>planetmaker: yes, every parent sprite is a bounding box
05:53<frosch123>usually you have one bounding box per industry tile, and two per traversable station tile (one in front and one behind the train)
05:53<frosch123>you can use more, but usally grfauthors just mess up :p
05:53<frosch123>why do you need multiple bounding boxes?
05:55<@planetmaker>I want to separately hide / not hide the fences on the adjacent tile's object type
05:55<@planetmaker>+depending on
05:56<@planetmaker>thus my idea was to use a separate building sprite for each fence
05:56<@planetmaker>then I can in an adv. sprite layout hide / not hide it. Or so my idea
05:56<frosch123>well, basically you can do all that stuff with child sprites, just that the positioning of child sprites is relatively to the topleft of the parent sprite, i.e. it depends on the size, relx and rely of the parent sprite

05:57<frosch123>however, for airports fences cause glitching between aircraft and foundation
05:57<@planetmaker>I'm currently doing NewObjects
05:57<frosch123>that's why ottd draws them as ground sprites
05:58<frosch123>planetmaker: if you want generic code, make all object use the bouding box at position <1,1,0> with size <14,14,maxz>
05:58<frosch123>then you can put the fences on the edges 0 and 15
05:59<@planetmaker>yes... but the hiding / not hiding is my problem. It doesn't work quite as I expect / want it to work...
06:00<@planetmaker>http://paste.openttdcoop.org/show/409/ <-- that's the two code versions I play(ed) with
06:00<@planetmaker>one the childsprite approach, the other the building one
06:01<@planetmaker>it works perfect for the first fence, but the subsequent ones seem to be hidden, if a previous one gets hidden.
06:01<andythenorth>ow

06:02<andythenorth>it remains amusing that the weight of Goods varies according to the vehicle it's travelling in :P
06:02<@planetmaker>and I at least need to make sure I understood what I can do before I start assuming it's a bug somewhere in NML or OpenTTD ;-)
06:02<frosch123>planetmaker: did you enable any transparency settings?
06:03<frosch123>smatz did some 'optimisation' that when the first sprite is invisible due to transparency settings, it will not draw the rest of the layout as well
06:03<@planetmaker>that might explain it, that's how it looks like
06:04<frosch123>try changing the 'return' in sprite.cpp:52 to a 'continue'
06:04<@planetmaker>but it looks like check first || draw first, check 2nd || draw 2nd, check 3rd || draw 3rd, check 4th || draw 4th
06:05<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: forklift will have generations with improving stats over time
06:05*planetmaker checks
06:05<andythenorth>so how fast at introduction (1936)
06:05<andythenorth>?
06:05<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: what kind of improving stats?
06:05<andythenorth>speed
06:06<andythenorth>rest will be the same
06:06<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: but make it a new model, so autoreplace can be used.

07:19<Eddi|zuHause>sdl is not used on OSX
07:20<andythenorth>maybe the OS is just being smart
07:20<frosch123>and if you have a composing window manager, it might do the composing on a different core as well
07:20<@Alberth>OS may be moving ottd back and forth between cores
07:20<frosch123>andythenorth: every os needs to be at least smatz enough to deal with the crappy hardware

07:21<frosch123>though maybe they are the same :)
07:21*andythenorth is wondering what to work on
07:21<Hirundo>if 'improving NML to make coding FIRS easier' counts as 'working on FIRS', then yes :)
07:22<andythenorth>yarp
07:22<andythenorth>is this a bug? Or a feature request?
07:22<andythenorth>http://dev.openttdcoop.org/issues/2569
07:22<andythenorth>the guy annoys me
07:26<@planetmaker>as heqs is not designed (IMHO) as stand alone set: feature request
07:28<Ammler>I guess, the guy just isn't able to distinguish the trackers...
07:29<Ammler>(and used default)
07:29<frosch123>heavy equipment for oil seeds?
07:30<frosch123>i don't think heqs is meant for any transport of organic stuff, is it?
07:30<@Alberth>andythenorth: ask clarification
07:31<@planetmaker>andythenorth: can you try compilation again after you set
07:31<@planetmaker>CFLAGS="-isystem/opt/local/include ${CFLAGS}"
07:32<@planetmaker>in your ~/.bash_profile?
07:32<andythenorth>planetmaker: sorry - it does compile
07:32<andythenorth>it was my stupid mistake
07:32<@planetmaker>oh
07:33<@planetmaker>but what made it fail in the first place?
07:33<andythenorth>not using make mrproper
07:33<@planetmaker>and what did you change?
07:33-!-robotx [~robotx@pat-36.wireless.bristol.edu] has joined #openttd
07:33<andythenorth>I used make mrproper :)
07:33<@planetmaker>ah... you copied from your old machine?
07:33<andythenorth>yes
07:33<@planetmaker>and then just compiled?
07:33<andythenorth>yes
07:33<andythenorth>stupid
07:33<@planetmaker>ok, yes, that must fail :-)
07:33<andythenorth>driver error
07:33<@planetmaker>been there, seen that
07:34<@planetmaker>good :-)
07:34<@planetmaker>lucky me
07:34<andythenorth>sorry
07:35<@planetmaker>don't worry
07:39<Hirundo>frosch123: would something like this work? http://pastebin.com/BQ51TTXd
07:40<Hirundo>(note: tested to the extent that it looks sane to my rather untrained eyes)
07:40<@planetmaker>andythenorth: today I'm not working on it. or currently
07:41<@planetmaker>might change :-P
07:41*andythenorth does other stuff
07:41<andythenorth>which is easier to understand:
07:41<frosch123>Hirundo: there is an /// instead of an //
07:41<andythenorth>"Running costs vary with capacity"
07:42<@planetmaker>why did you ask?
07:42<andythenorth>or "Higher capacities cost more to run"
07:42<frosch123>looks fine to me, but it will for sure cause some discussion about the "right" value :p
07:42<@planetmaker>what does that patch? ttdp?
07:42<Hirundo>of course MB will disagree :P just because he can
07:43<andythenorth>MB: grinch, or force for good?
07:43<Hirundo>planetmaker: provide a defined result for failed 7E procedure calls in TTDP
07:44*andythenorth thinks force for good

07:46<Pulec>is there a dedicated ottd server for debian?
07:47<frosch123>Hirundo: so would eis_os. and the other patchdevs will most likely not understand what it is about, unless you explain it to them. the only one who could deal with it from ttdp would be dalestan
07:48<Ammler>Pulec: not from openttd.org, you might need to build it self
07:48<Hirundo>What's the best way of reaching them? Are they around on IRC often, or is it best to create a forum post?
07:49<frosch123>on irc you will only catch lakie
07:49<Ammler>Hirundo: ttdp is dead
07:50<frosch123>and reaching the other "them" would first need defining who "them" is

07:50<Pulec>thats a bit more complicated, so the easiset way is to run ottd on some xwindows
07:50<frosch123>you can put it on the forum and wait for some trolls though :)
07:52<@planetmaker>Pulec: the default binary can work as dedicated
07:52<Hirundo>ah well, I'll do so and see what happens :)
07:52<Ammler>Pulec: well, you could install the build-dep of openttd
07:52<@planetmaker>./openttd -D and you're set
07:52<Ammler>planetmaker: no, they can't
07:52<@planetmaker>ach?
07:52<Ammler>those need still X
07:52<Ammler>or sdl
07:53<Hirundo>As a side note, what was the 'correct' way of failing a callback again?
07:53<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: so what's easier, installing the build-deps or installing sdl?
07:54<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause: I guess, it depends on the guy who installs :-)
07:54<Ammler>what he prefers
07:54<Hirundo>Do a real action2->action1, with action1 containing 1 set with 0 sprites?

07:59<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: that should be default for company owned land
07:59<@planetmaker>hm... ok, possibly 1.1.3-RC1...
07:59<@planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause: you mean this fencing?
08:00<Eddi|zuHause>yes
08:00<frosch123>planetmaker: rather 1.2 beta 1
08:00<frosch123>advsprlayout is not 1.1 stuff, is it?
08:00<@planetmaker>hm, yes, probably
08:01<@planetmaker>well, no new opengfx+landscape then for anyone playing stables :-P
08:01<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: 'spose you want load sprites for your forklift?
08:01<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: that'd be good, but a generic box might suffice

08:02<@planetmaker>hm
08:03<@planetmaker>but that's only because it's not installed via package manager, right?
08:03<Ammler>I installed it via rpm with --nodeps
08:03<frosch123>it was not compiled as dedicated-only
08:03<Ammler>so it didn't install the whole sdl
08:04<@planetmaker>Ammler: well, then it's no surprise, is it?
08:04<Ammler>well, you expected it to work
08:04<@planetmaker>when installed properly
08:04<Ammler>maybe you aren't the only openttd dev doing that, that is why you don't provide dedicated bundles
08:04<Ammler>what is the point of building dedicated version, when you have sdl installed?
08:05<Ammler>I am not sure, if it would be possible to make openttd loading sdl only, if available
08:05<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: we used to provide dedicated-only binaries, but there simply was not enough demand
08:07<Ammler>Eddi|zuHause: I know, it is aounrd one per year asking for it :-)
08:07<Ammler>better to provide 10 different formats of the same
08:12<Rubidium>frosch123, Eddi|zuHause: OpenTTD can use more than 2 threads (by itself): main thread, background save thread and... SDL drawing thread. Then there's also the other auxiliary threads such as sound playback and IP address resolution, though those are out of OpenTTD's control

08:57<andythenorth>about 2 months ago :)
08:58<@planetmaker>see, people just don't listen to you ;-)
08:58<andythenorth>signal to noise ratio is bad
08:59<frosch123>planetmaker, Hirundo: more than 256 operations in an advvaract2?
08:59<@planetmaker>not sure... possible?
09:01<frosch123>yeah
09:01<frosch123>it works if i change byte to uint :)
09:01<frosch123>nml entered a new dimension :p
09:01<@planetmaker>:-D
09:01<@planetmaker>It's not the first time I run into that...
09:01<@planetmaker>Hirundo and Yexo will know :-P
09:02<frosch123>we will need to implement runtime scheduling and multi-threaded advact2
09:02<Hirundo>or... more operators, so NML doesn't need so many arcane workarounds :)
09:04<@planetmaker>this auto-fencing really stretches the VarAction2 limits...
09:05<@planetmaker>First it was just for level ones - that was sorted.
09:05<@planetmaker>Now... going for the arbitrary slope, we're there again ;-)
09:08<Hirundo>frosch123: It might be best to put those adjusts in a SmallVector, to reduce the endless reallocing

09:24<@planetmaker>many limits can be worked around one way or another...
09:25<Eddi|zuHause>just not sure i can teach them to nml yet
09:27<Eddi|zuHause>right, what i wanted to ask: i used some undocumented feature like "var[0x45,0, 0x000F0F0F]", is there some similar undocumented feature for var6x?
09:28<@planetmaker>the same way
09:29<Eddi|zuHause>how does that handle the parameter?
09:29<@planetmaker>IIRC as 4th parameter
09:29<@planetmaker>uhm, no
09:30<@planetmaker>STORE_TEMP(value, 256+0x10), STORE_TEMP(value, 256+0x18)
09:30<@planetmaker>as the callback variables
09:30<@planetmaker>hm... or just a value beyond 255
09:30<@planetmaker>FIRS did something like that
09:31<Eddi|zuHause>link?
09:32<@planetmaker>switch(FEAT_INDUSTRYTILES, SELF, action2_6811, var[0x60, 0, 255, 0]) {
09:32<@planetmaker>http://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/firs/repository/revisions/a25c65bfcabd/entry/sprites/nml/industries/plastics_plant.pnml
09:32<@planetmaker>so 4th parameter it was
09:33<Eddi|zuHause>"action2_6811" sounds very autoconversion-y :)
09:34<@planetmaker>yup
09:34<@planetmaker>you need that for the yet not existing parameters, right?
09:35<@planetmaker>not for the existing ones?
09:35<Eddi|zuHause>yep
09:35<@planetmaker>a very good reason to keep it, although undocumented :-)

09:36<Hirundo>k good
09:37*Hirundo puts var[0x45,0, 0x000F0F0F] on the NML feature list
09:38<Eddi|zuHause>this autoconverted FIRS is full of these things, though ;)
09:38<Hirundo>I know :S
09:39<@planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause: yes, it is. But they easily are converted to proper calls.
09:39<@planetmaker>And many (most?) are
09:39<@planetmaker>it was an old rev I linked
09:39<Hirundo>hmm... do you need the triplet info in this case?
09:39<@planetmaker>curv_info_prev_cur and friends?
09:40<Hirundo>yes
09:40<Hirundo>I mean in var[0x45,0, 0x000F0F0F], does the triplet part add any useful information?
09:40<Eddi|zuHause>Hirundo: yes, the cases are 0x000F0F00, 0x000F000F, 0x00010100, 0x00010001 and default
09:41<Hirundo>You could distinguish these cases with var[0x45, 0, 0x00000F0F] also, right?
09:41<Eddi|zuHause>Hirundo: not really

09:42<Hirundo>Isn't triplet just the same as front + back? ergo, it adds no information entropy
09:42<Eddi|zuHause>Hirundo: i have to know that when the front one is curved, the back one is straight
09:43<Hirundo>that's 0x0001 resp 0x000F, no need to use the triplet info for that
09:44<Eddi|zuHause>Hirundo: there might be some corner cases i'm overlooking
09:47<Hirundo>I'm not sure though, how a unified variable would work w.r.t. sign extension
09:48-!-Juo [~Juo@31.6.18.155] has joined #openttd
09:49<Hirundo>currently negative values (0x0C - 0x0F) are sign extended to -4 .. -1, you can't just stick two (or more) of such values into a single dword
09:51<Eddi|zuHause>can you do operations in the case-constants? like "((-1 & 0xF) << 8) | ((-1 & 0xF) << 16)"?
09:52<Eddi|zuHause>or you need tuples ;)
09:52<Eddi|zuHause>"raw" var45 then returns a 3-tuple
09:54<Hirundo>tuples are about a dozen bridges further :)
09:54<@planetmaker>:-)
09:55<Hirundo>We could do something akin to relative_pos for objects etc.
09:55<CIA-2>OpenTTD: frosch * r22724 /trunk/src/newgrf.cpp: -Codechange: Reduce number of realloc calls when loading VarAct2s.
09:56<Hirundo>that var returns 0xYYXX, and you get a helper function relative_coord(x, y) that does the bit magic for you
09:56<CIA-2>OpenTTD: frosch * r22725 /trunk/src/ (industry_gui.cpp object_gui.cpp): -Fix: Always draw NewGRF supplied texts with a default colour.
09:59<Eddi|zuHause>i thought lots of variables have that kind of bitstuffing
10:00<Hirundo>yes, but in most cases the variables are just split in parts and reading them as one isn't really useful
10:01<Hirundo>relative_pos is an exception, as a whole it turned out to be really useful to decide on graphics within an industry/object/airport
10:01<Hirundo>separate variables relative_x and relative_y are still available, though
10:03<Eddi|zuHause>hm, i think i never properly checked 90° curves for my vehicles...

12:52<Noxbru>hi, may I ask you some questions about AITile.GetCargoAcceptance/Production ?
12:52-!-Andel [~andel@owenrudge.net] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
12:52<frosch123>@topic get -3
12:52<@DorpsGek>frosch123: Don't ask to ask, just ask
12:53<Noxbru>sorry :-[
12:53<andythenorth>at least he was specific :)
12:54<Noxbru>my problem is that i'm trying to sort some tiles by its passengers acceptance, and building a bus stop at the top one, but the AI puts the station at the last tile
12:54<Noxbru>I have told my AI to write at the log the acceptances of the tiles, and it says 0s and -1s
12:55<Noxbru>so I wanted to ask how more or less does AITile.GetCargoAcceptance/Production works
12:55<frosch123>-1 means error
12:55<frosch123>something is wrong about the arguments to the fnuction
12:56<frosch123>take a look at the preconditions for that function

12:58<frosch123>then the function shall not return -1
12:59<Noxbru>I am generating the tile list with: "tiles.AddRectangle(town + AIMap.GetTileIndex(-10,-10), town + AIMap.GetTileIndex(10,10));"
12:59<Noxbru>then, keeping the roads
12:59<frosch123>you can use the landscape info tool on the very right of the toolbar (the '?') to check the acceptance of indiviudal tiles
12:59<Noxbru>and checking their acceptance of passengers
13:00<Noxbru>AILog.Info(AITile.GetCargoProduction(tile,AICargo.CC_PASSENGERS,1,1,5) + "");
13:01<frosch123>AICargo.CC_PASSENGERS is no cargo type
13:02<frosch123>it's a cargoclass, but actually that should not matter in this case
13:02<Noxbru>ups... then, that's the error
13:04<frosch123>ah, it checks for coal acceptance that way :)
13:04<frosch123>resp. production
13:08<Noxbru>then, how I should pass the CargoID? at the AICargo there isn't any function that returns CargoID

16:28<George>Property 11 holds it fine. it works well when only the 3-d cargo is available
16:29<George>But would it be the same with CB 14B
16:29<frosch123>currently it fills the slot with "invalid cargo"
16:29<frosch123>so the slot will be disabled
16:30<frosch123>it will not fill up those slots with the 4th or 5th call
16:30<George>would it pass to the next cargo?

16:59<Eddi|zuHause>pjpe: depends
17:00<Eddi|zuHause>pjpe: there are factors that slow down and other factors that speed up
17:01<pjpe>mind elaborating?
17:03<Rubidium>having to make the reservation takes time
17:03<Rubidium>but once the reservation is there it simple follows that as if there are no junctions in the rail
17:04<Eddi|zuHause>pjpe: the state of block signals is calculated by breadth-first-search, so large crossings must be fully traversed every time a train is entering or leaving the block, while with path signals, the path finder marks the tracks as it would touch them anyway, also with path signals, generally fewer pathfinder runs are necessary, which takes less time. on the other hand, with path signals, stuck trains must repeatedly check whether the track
17:04<Eddi|zuHause>became free, which takes more time
17:04<Rubidium>when there is no reservation, each switch results in a call to the pathfinder
17:05<pjpe>stuck trains as in stuck at a light?
17:05<Rubidium>so it's balancing amount of reservations vs amount of pathfinder calls
17:05<Eddi|zuHause>pjpe: yes
17:05<pjpe>so if i get this right
17:05<pjpe>say
17:06<pjpe>it's better to have block signals normally but path signals in front of say
17:06<pjpe>junctions or stations?
17:06<Eddi|zuHause>pjpe: if you have straight track with signals, path signals will probably be marginally slower than block signals
17:06<pjpe>just what i thought
17:06<pjpe>really pisses me off seeing that too
17:06<pjpe>just looks so wrong
17:07<Eddi|zuHause>maybe someone should do a profiling session to determine how much it is actually slower/faster
