04:58-!-robotx [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:59<@Alberth>I guessed as much, but most people that actually write messages here play other games, mostly coding and painting pixels
04:59<Coke>Sonds cool.
05:00<@Alberth>you're welcome to come and play too if you like :)
05:07<Coke>I am :)
05:07<@planetmaker>there's lots of servers around where people play. Just checkout some and stick around where you like it
05:07<Coke>I'm currently using the 32bpp version
05:07<Coke>My buddy tried connecting, but the original client says the versions are different.
05:07<Coke>Is there any chance of this 32bpp being part of upstream and compatible with other servers/clients?
05:07<@planetmaker>you don't need a special version to use 32bpp
05:07<frosch123>yes, versions need to match exactly
05:08<@planetmaker>(why do people always confuse extra zoom with 32bpp support?)
05:08<__ln__>SmatZ: 14:20 < frosch123> andythenorth: every os needs to be at least smatz enough to deal with the crappy hardware
05:08<Coke>planetmaker: no? the extra zoom feature install page instructs me to get it
05:08<Coke>planetmaker: because it's not exactly clear the two are separate
05:08<Coke>but thanks for enlightening me
05:08<@planetmaker>yes, the extra zoom people make people believe it's synomymous. It's not
05:08<@planetmaker>OpenTTD supports 32bpp for years actually
05:09<@planetmaker>but still, nowhere a complete 32bpp graphics set exists
05:09<Coke>Cool. But that extra level of zoom helps when youre on a 1920x1080 screen and play windowed mode
05:09<@planetmaker>well, but those version are not compatible with normal builds ;-)
05:10<Coke>extra zoom is on 1.1.0
05:11<Coke>how come it isn't part of upstream? not stable enough?
05:11<@planetmaker>not finished enough
05:11<@planetmaker>and there's no extra zoom in 1.1.0
05:12<Coke>planetmaker: ok, but perhaps one day the upstream openttd will have such a feature?
05:12<frosch123>that was said 5 years ago
05:12<@planetmaker>quite probably. The question is "when"
05:13<Coke>does it require lots of changes?
05:14<frosch123>depend on who you ask :p
05:14<Coke>i dont really need the fancy graphics, just one more level of zoom would be enough
05:14<frosch123>that part is more likely to hit official versions somewhen
05:14<Ammler>use a OS, which supports zooming
05:15<frosch123>Coke: btw. you can increase the font size in official versions
05:15<frosch123>and there is also a ogfx big gui newgrf, though there are still lots of problems with it
05:20<@planetmaker>hm... another neglected point... we need static newgrf support
05:20<@planetmaker>though the bigGUI imho preferentially becomes part of the GUI itself

05:39<Coke>does the game mechanics include transfers? if I build a station in nowhere will passengers get off and wait for another train?
05:40<@planetmaker>not automatically
05:40<@planetmaker>look for transfer orders
05:41<@planetmaker>it's different if you play with a version which features cargo destinations... but those are (again) not default openttd versions. Though they're fun
05:41<@planetmaker>loads of fun

05:58<duckblaster1>it's available in game
05:59<duckblaster1>graphs -> cargo payment rates

06:37-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
06:49-!-Noxbru [] has joined #openttd
06:52<Noxbru>Hi, I have a question about Lists, is it always necessary to use "foreach ( item, *VALUE* in item_list)" to walk lists ?
06:53<frosch123>you can also use valuators
06:55<frosch123>and there is "for (local i = list.Begin(); !list.IsEnd(); i = list.Next()) {"
06:56<frosch123>i.e. every list has some build-in iterator
06:56<Noxbru>ah, ok, I just wanted to avoid that much code but seems that at the end it was a failure
06:57<frosch123>valuators are most likely the most elegant way
06:57<frosch123>though you cannot use them always
06:57<Noxbru>ok, I just wanted to walk the list and extract the IDs to some extern variables
06:58<KittenKoder>Okies, sorry for that lapse in response. >.<
06:58<KittenKoder>Digging through documentation.
06:59<KittenKoder>Anyone have a good NML example of rail replacement?
06:59<frosch123>swedish rails
06:59<KittenKoder>Well, replacement+expanding of types would be nice, but I can figure out most of it with just one decent example.
07:00<KittenKoder>The source?
07:00<frosch123>click on repository
07:00<frosch123>browse online, or clone
07:01<Noxbru>yes, in the documentation says that you can use "foreach (town, value in townlist) { }" but i just wanted to know if I have to add the *value* thing, because i haven't used any valuator on the list
07:01<Noxbru>and at the doc of AIList there isn't any info about "foreach"
07:02<KittenKoder>Aha, found it, TY
07:02<frosch123>Noxbru: just ignore 'val' then
07:02<frosch123>that is you have to specify some "val" in the foreach statement, but you do not have to use it
07:03<Noxbru>that's what I'm doing now, thanks!
07:04<KittenKoder>Going to work on a new Maglev track, and maybe even some made up trains .... for personal use but I'll post it all on the forums, I promise.
07:05<frosch123>swedish rails is gplv2
07:05<Noxbru>I was asking that because checking the code of the RoadPathfinder, there's a couple of "foreach (item in item_list)" without any reference to value
07:05<frosch123>so, if you base your work on it, and release it, you have to use gplv2 as well
07:06<frosch123>Noxbru: i do not know that syntax, but i do not know a lot about squirrel. i can only read the api code :)
07:07<frosch123>your best chance is to hope that zuu will join somewhen today
07:07-!-andythenorth [] has quit [Quit: andythenorth]
07:07<frosch123>yexo is still on the road
07:08<Noxbru>ok, thanks a lot anyway (^_^) I use to code in C and this C++/Squirrel thing is a bit new for me
07:12<Noxbru>see you later
07:12<KittenKoder>Not basing my work on anything, just needed an example of how it's done.
07:12<KittenKoder>I learn better that way, oddly.
07:13<Noxbru>and thanks again frosch123
07:13-!-Noxbru [] has left #openttd []
07:13<KittenKoder>Now, I just need the base terrain graphics. >.<
07:13<KittenKoder>Though ....
07:13<frosch123>new railtypes work with overlay
07:13<frosch123>you do not need the grass
07:14<frosch123>just make those parts transparent
07:14<KittenKoder>Oh, sweet, so I just draw the tracks filled in with all transparent color now.
07:14<KittenKoder>Should have been a question. >.<

07:22<KittenKoder>TY frosch123.
07:27<robotz>does a openttd port to tablets (ipad/touchpad) already exist?
07:28-!-robotz is now known as robotx
07:28-!-robotx is now known as havanab
07:29<frosch123>many ports came and went
07:29-!-Brianetta [~brian@] has joined #openttd
07:29<frosch123>no idea whether there is a current one
07:29-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
07:30<Rubidium>I doubt there will be a current ipad port; after all, the public for it is pretty small as you'd need a jailbroken ipad
07:31<Rubidium>and even then, all comments I heard from ipad users is that the buttons are too small
07:32<havanab>i see, actually I m more interested in Touchpad. ok, too small buttons is bad for touch control
07:34<havanab>but thanks for enlightenment
07:35<Rubidium>in any case, in most cases porting is relatively trivial: get the required libraries compiled for the device and the right (gcc) cross-compiler and compile
07:35<KittenKoder>Wasn't there a "big" GUI GRF out?
07:36<Ammler>you didn't really search?
07:37<Rubidium>KittenKoder: most buttons are bigger than busses. If you can't hit a button at normal scale, then you can't hit the bus either
07:37-!-andythenorth [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:38<Rubidium>and when building with the autorail/autoroad tools it starts to need even more precision
07:38<KittenKoder>I just saw it on the list once, that's all.
07:38<Rubidium>and those are things the big gui grf doesn't/can't do anything about
07:38<KittenKoder>I don't get touch screen myself anyway.
07:39<KittenKoder>Fingerprints on my monitor. >.< Eeew.
07:41<havanab>Ammler: aren't you from the german community?
07:41<Ammler>hehe, got it :-P
07:44<havanab>i think i played with you ~2 years ago on your(?) server, :)
07:47<Ammler>I run for about a year a server
07:49<Eddi|zuHause>you mean the swiss forum :p
07:51<havanab>the "german speaking" forum hehe
07:51<havanab>the tt-ms server was cool indeed

08:41<KittenKoder>Okies, ty
08:49-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
08:51<TrueBrain>owh, not 10 days ago I did it too, but today I do it again: OpenDUNE 0.6 released :D:D:D:D /me makes a happy dance
08:52<__ln__>TrueBrain: remember to dance without a rhythm
08:52<Rubidium>oh... does it have free graphics already? ;)
08:52<+glx>of course not
08:53<TrueBrain>Rubidium: you volunteering? :)
08:53<TrueBrain>you know what is funny, that all main distros have accepted 'opengfx' as package .. it just makes me smile :)
08:53<TrueBrain>not openttd-opengfx, no, just opengfx :p
08:53*Rubidium ponders what the main distros are
08:54<Eddi|zuHause>> zypper search opengfx
08:54<Rubidium>it can't include arch, debian, fedora or ubuntu
08:54<Eddi|zuHause> | openttd-opengfx | Default replacement graphics for OpenTTD | Paket
08:54<TrueBrain>did I wrote main? Lol: my :D
08:55<TrueBrain>gentoo has it :p
08:55<Prof_Frink>i A openttd-opengfx
08:55<Eddi|zuHause>no, i don't have it installed
08:55<Rubidium>gentoo, freebsd and sabayon have it named opengfx
08:55<KittenKoder>I know, a bit bland, but easier to see what's what. :p
08:55<TrueBrain>its weird (and maybe clsoe to stupid :p)
08:55<TrueBrain>bu it made me smile :)
08:56<Eddi|zuHause>KittenKoder: might be a little high
08:56<TrueBrain>so I tried opengfx with OpenDUNE, but it was ugly :P :D *troll*
08:56<Rubidium>only debian (+ derivates) have openmsx though (of set: arch, debian, fedora, freebsd, gentoo, opensuse, sabayon, slackware & ubuntu)
08:56<Eddi|zuHause>since when is opensuse a debian-derivate?
08:56<KittenKoder>Okies, well this is a rough rendering, but it's my first try. Eddi|zuHause

08:57<Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: <- it's not listed there
08:57<Eddi|zuHause>KittenKoder: mind that you cannot change the offset of the vehicles, so they might drive next to the rails
08:57<TrueBrain>Rubidium: gentoo also has openmsx
08:57<TrueBrain>just not related to OpenTTD :P
08:57<Rubidium>TrueBrain: not in the list I mentioned before, nor in
08:58<TrueBrain>OpenMSX is an MSX Emulator, so it seems :p
08:58<TrueBrain>no clue what MSX is
08:58<KittenKoder>I'll see what it will do.
08:58<Rubidium>TrueBrain: old game computer of some sorts
08:58<KittenKoder>The only reason I don't like the default maglev tracks is that it's hard to tell where the tracks are in junctions.

09:18<Rubidium>frosch123: the majority of the netsplit definitely (have) used IPv6 connections

10:35<Eddi|zuHause>two changes: 1) the fences don't depend on neighbouring trackbits anymore, only on owner, 2) it also considers neighbouring objects etc.
10:35<Eddi|zuHause>2) should probably get an exception for road
10:40<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: looks great
10:42<Eddi|zuHause>these small fences in the middle of junctions always annoyed me, that's why i play without fences most of the time
10:42<Hirundo>KittenKoder: As of 1 minute ago, the NML repository contains an example railtype grf

10:45<KittenKoder>... and thank you so much.
10:51<Eddi|zuHause>conceptual question: can we make GetTileOwner return OWNER_NONE on void tiles and OWNER_TOWN on house and industry tiles, instead of asserting?
10:58<Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: so when you put a road next to your rail it gets no fence?

12:45<Eddi|zuHause>i guess it's near a ferry

13:34<frosch123>George: though the examples in the wiki are not actually tested
13:34<Eddi|zuHause>Coke: get a version from 5 years ago and press Ctrl+D

14:29<KittenKoder>But I finally figured it all out.
14:29<KittenKoder>Got it all working, stupid version conflicts were just making things not work.
14:36<Coke>Is there a time limit for how long steel and goods are available from an industry?
14:38<Eddi|zuHause>cargo disappears slowly if your rating drops below 50%
14:38<Coke>I see.
14:38<Coke>i guess good players never let it drop below 50?
14:39<Eddi|zuHause>yes, mostly by having always a train waiting
14:40<Coke>does the train cost if it's standing still?
14:41<Coke>do you guys ever play co op?

15:39<andythenorth>it's a shame I have to dick around with scenario editor for 40 mins to get a sensible number of industries :(
15:39<@planetmaker>andy why do you?
15:39<KittenKoder>Tweak the settings.
15:39<@planetmaker>high density + more, more more ;-)
15:39<andythenorth>I can't find a setting that will generate a sensible number like that
15:39<andythenorth>especially at that map size
15:40<KittenKoder>Like that image?
15:40<andythenorth>and tweaking it in FIRS only affects balance, not total amount
15:40<andythenorth>yes, like that image ;)
15:40<KittenKoder>It does effect the total amount.
15:40<KittenKoder>But a large number like that is easy breezy.
15:41<andythenorth>it didn't affect the total amount last time I read the code
15:41<andythenorth>although it may have been rewritten since then
15:41<KittenKoder>My preferred setting is Very Low and multiples of the same per town.
15:42<KittenKoder>Go into your advanced settings, under economy-industries, check "Allow multiple ...",.
15:42<andythenorth>KittenKoder: thanks
15:42<KittenKoder>Then set it for normal in the generating a new game, you should see something like that. ;)
15:43<andythenorth>but I suspect I've generated at least ^2 more maps than you have ;)
15:43-!-Kurimus [] has quit []
15:43<KittenKoder>Unless you are at least 25 years old and started playing TT when it was new, it would be virtually impossible.
15:43<andythenorth>both of those are true
15:44<KittenKoder>Then most likely you have generated the same number as me.
15:44<andythenorth>but writing/testing FIRS industry generation code basically means spending hours typing 'newgame' in console
15:44<andythenorth>then hitting m
15:44<andythenorth>rinse, repeat :P
15:44<KittenKoder>However, I play with every setting.
15:44<andythenorth>for all map sizes
15:44<KittenKoder>I need to write a batch script in Blender for rendering tracks. >.<
15:45<andythenorth>anyway....a new setting value would be good. Industries: insane :P
15:45<KittenKoder>Can't wait for the 32bpp version now that I figured out NML.
15:45<KittenKoder>andythenorth, I have seen a lot of layouts like that, even on low setting.
15:47<@Terkhen>openttd includes 32bpp already
15:47<+glx>but not extra zoom
15:47<andythenorth>where do I start on a map like this? :P
15:47<andythenorth>it's bonkers
15:48<@Terkhen>the sea looks empty
15:48<Rubidium>for the (almost) 7 years they're working on 32bpp the output is remarkably small
15:49<andythenorth>no trams in 1860 :(
15:50-!-sla_ro|vista [~slaco@] has joined #openttd
15:50<andythenorth>I forgot to include TAI grf on that map :(
15:51<andythenorth>so that's 40 minutes wasted :P
15:51*andythenorth is done with the game for today in that case
15:51<KittenKoder>Terkhen, why does the GRF still palette them?
15:51<andythenorth>maybe I'll patch the industry setting to add 'insane'
15:51<@peter1138>just change the grfs midgame, trololol
15:52<KittenKoder>I think I missed something in the updates. >.<
15:52<@Terkhen>KittenKoder: what GRF?
15:52<andythenorth>peter1138: you think I didn't try that? ;)
15:52<andythenorth>no dice
15:52<Rubidium>to be honest, OpenGFX has taken 2 years as well
15:53<andythenorth>FIRS will be 3 in November
15:53<KittenKoder>NML ... which come to think of it ... suddenly the warning makes sense.
15:53<@planetmaker>Two years is a reasonable time for 10k sprites
15:53<KittenKoder>2 years is great time actually.
15:53<Eddi|zuHause>that depends on various things
15:53<Eddi|zuHause>32bpp lacks some serious momentum
15:54<@Terkhen>unified vision? :P

15:54-!-jpx_ [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
15:55<@Terkhen>KittenKoder: OpenTTD supports 32bpp, but that does not means it always work on 32bpp :)
15:55<KittenKoder>What about alpha channel?
15:55<@planetmaker>why do you think it's called 32bpp?
15:55<@Terkhen>grfs use 8bpp
15:56<@Terkhen>and you add the 32bpp sprites separately IIRC
15:56<@planetmaker>iirc, yes
15:56<@planetmaker>I've never seen it really.
15:56<KittenKoder>Okay, now I'm confused again ... but meh.
15:56<@planetmaker>Though (e)grvts might do that
15:56<andythenorth>to change my town grf in SE, I have to delete all towns :P
15:56<andythenorth>so all industries go too
15:57<@Terkhen>if you want to create a 32bpp only NewGRF, use black sprites for 8bpp, but since there is no 32bpp base set, no one will use your 32bpp NewGRF because it will look "wrong" with a 8bpp base set
15:57<andythenorth>and here we see again why changing grfs = no
15:57<@Terkhen>and yes, egrvts is the only NewGRF I know that has 32bpp
15:57<Eddi|zuHause>town grf can be added, but the towns themselves don't change immediately
15:57<Eddi|zuHause>if "town" means "houses"
15:57<Eddi|zuHause>so you have to bulldoze all towns, and then click "expand" a few times
15:57<KittenKoder>I like rgvrts
15:58<Eddi|zuHause>KittenKoder: just it's a known broken grf and nobody bothers to fix it
16:01<andythenorth>the breaks are minor
16:05<@Terkhen>only the horses, or is there anything else?

16:09<andythenorth>I'm inclined to agree
16:09<andythenorth>I was just playing a game that needed horses, but not rest of egrvts

16:14<frosch123>oh no, did rubidum again read in the forbidden forums? :p
16:15<Rubidium>forbidden? It seems to be the place where these kinds of issues ought to be discussed.
16:17<andythenorth>I don't want to know about forbidden forums
16:17<frosch123>they can affect your mind badly
16:18<andythenorth>I am trying to forbid myself the suggestions forum
16:18<andythenorth>but I keep screwing up :P
16:19<andythenorth>wtf 'Adjustable and Different Station Tiles' ?
16:21-!-Xrufuian [] has left #openttd []
16:21<Rubidium>frosch123: I've understood that forum correctly if their standpoint is that the whole inter-NewGRF balancing is a problem caused by OpenTTD's "multipool" "misfeature". Thus it only is a problem in OpenTTD and that there are no cases where it could be seen as troublesome in TTDPatch, right?
16:22<frosch123>i think if you use the canadian themepack and if we extent action e so you can disable all grfs except a few specific ones, everything is fine
16:25<andythenorth>basically the solution to all balancing issues is 'use the canadian theme pack'
16:26<Eddi|zuHause>frosch123: why does that need extension? a counter that enumerates all valid grf-ids, a loop, and an action 6 should be possible :p
16:27<frosch123>good point
16:28<Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: it ought to just disable itself when it finds e.g. FF "OTT"
16:30*andythenorth considers disabling grfs that are lame
16:31<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: so "lame" being "all except mine"?
16:32<Rubidium>yes openttd.grf is lame
16:32<Eddi|zuHause>Rubidium: what happens if i disable that by a grf?
16:32<Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: you can't disable that
16:33<Rubidium>it doesn't end up in the NewGRF list
16:33<Rubidium>but openttd.grf disables itself when it find that you run ttdpatch
16:33<Rubidium>or a too low version of OpenTTD
16:34<Eddi|zuHause>why are no fences placed above snow line, where they are actually needed the most?
16:35<Coke>Can I remove the implicit stops indefinately?
16:35<Twerkhoven[L]>now cows / less humans to wander onto the tracks
16:35<Coke>THey keep popping back up and the train just stops for a few secs, might as well not stop.
16:35<Twerkhoven[L]>the fences arend the kind that can stop snow effectively anyway
16:35<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: because you haven't patched for that?
16:35<andythenorth>or the bits are used or something?
16:36<Eddi|zuHause>i think there are no bits for it
16:37<Eddi|zuHause>"rail has fence" implies "rail has grass"
16:37<Eddi|zuHause>or something
16:37<Rubidium>Coke: use non-stop orders
16:38<Eddi|zuHause>and why are horses not company coloured? :p
16:39<@planetmaker>cows are, if owned by chocolate companies
