02:32<norbert79>Morning
02:32<Markk>Oi :)
02:44<norbert79>Morning Markk !
02:45<Markk>How are you doing? :)
02:45<Markk>Are you better than last week?
02:46<norbert79>Better, thank you, catched something like a flu, got KO-ed for the last 4 days
02:46<Markk>ah
02:46<norbert79>I am not recovered full, but feeling ok
02:46<Markk>Okey.:)
02:46<Markk>Good that you're better atleast.
02:46<norbert79>Was a bit early for flu :)
02:47<norbert79>And you Markk ?
02:47<Markk>Alot of people here catches cold and flu's atm.
02:47<Markk>It's fine. :)
02:48<Markk>I've slept well, eaten breakfast, got my morning cigarette (even 4 of them already :x ), got my morning bike ride (from the bus to work, about 15 mins) and also my morning coke. :)
02:49<Markk>So, I shouldn't complain I guess. :)
02:49<norbert79>Sounds nice
02:51<Markk>Yes, indeed it is. :)
02:51<norbert79>Do you know the movie Matrix, I assume, right?
02:51-!-DDR [~DDR@142.179.78.88] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
02:51<Markk>Would be perfect with some OTTD right now, but I don't think my supervisor would fancy that as much as I would. :)
02:51<Markk>Yep.
02:52<Markk>Think I've seen all of them.
02:52<norbert79>And do you also know the movie it was basically based of, Dark City from 1998?
02:52<Markk>Hm, I don't, acctually. :o
02:53<norbert79>Well, during the weekend I had a chance watching it, and I must say it was quite exciting and interesting for me
02:53<__ln__>Better watch the Director's Cut though.
02:53<norbert79>__ln__: Did
02:53<__ln__>Good.
02:53<norbert79>__ln__: I must say I was impressed
02:53<Markk>:)
02:54<norbert79>Mr Hand :)
02:54<__ln__>But that Matrix would be based on Dark City... I don't think that's possible.
02:55<norbert79>__ln__: Ehm, shall I come with pages, which compare both movies? (DC - Matrix 1)
02:55<norbert79>:)
02:55<norbert79>There are tons of similarities
02:55<norbert79>and you can feel on Episode 1, that it was extraordanary, while 2nd and the 3rd episode kinda sucked
02:57<norbert79>__ln__: http://www.retrojunk.com/details_articles/540/ - Actually this article made me to watch Dark City
02:57<__ln__>norbert79: I know, but the premiere of Dark City was only 13 months before the premiere of Matrix.
02:58<norbert79>__ln__: Sure, but 13 months are a lot of time
02:58<__ln__>Which IMHO is a short time to copy the ideas, write a script, shoot, do a lot of special effects, and have it released.
02:58<norbert79>__ln__: Nah, you would be suprised...
02:58<norbert79>__ln__: Besides, the main focus was on bullet time
02:59<norbert79>either way the Watchowsky brothers could gather a copy of the screenbook of Dark City any time
02:59<__ln__>norbert79: While you're at it, you could also watch ExistenZ, the third movie from the same era with a sort of similar theme.
03:00<norbert79>__ln__: Now you made me curious
03:00<norbert79>__ln__: I watched the 13th Floor too, which also was used by the Watchowsky brothers
03:00<__ln__>Oh yes, that's the fourth.
03:00<norbert79>Let me check ExistenZ
03:00-!-Neon [~Neon@dslb-178-004-186-157.pools.arcor-ip.net] has joined #openttd
03:00<norbert79>13th floor rocked too :)
03:01<norbert79>http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120907/mediaindex - No shots from the movie... Dang
03:01<norbert79>Hah, found some though on outnow.ch
03:02<norbert79>I think I have seen this, or at least I can remember having seen it on German television once
03:02<norbert79>yet not in full
03:02<norbert79>I remember the controllers
03:03<norbert79>I should rewatch it again... Thanks for the tip __ln__
03:06<norbert79>__ln__: Basically if you recall the end of Matrix 2, you remember a scene where Neo disables some sentry robots in real life with the same method he used within the Matrix. That was the point, where I stopped watching Matrix, but if you also recall Dark City, you remmeber the main character doing the same, yet there was at least an explanation to that how he was able doing so. Yet that scene is also an exact proof of copying Dark Cit
03:06<norbert79>y, but it was used at the worst part of the story...
03:06-!-DDR [~DDR@142.179.78.88] has joined #openttd
03:07<__ln__>I've been trying to forget Matrix 2 and 3 because they sucked so much.
03:08<norbert79>__ln__: So does everyone :))
03:08<norbert79>__ln__: Yet the scene with the candy and the girl was fun :D
03:08<norbert79>I mean dessert

05:32<appe>seriosly, wouldnt it be nice as a parameter?
05:33<appe>where the setting goes from normal (plus fast-forward), slow, slower, slowester, slowie mc'finnegan and realistic
05:33<@peter1138>realistic...
05:34<appe>you dont have to change track completion
05:34<norbert79>peter1138: I would also call it 'real time' instead
05:34<appe>simply change the ratio between city growth and game speed.
05:34<Eddi|zuHause>yeah, "simply"
05:35<appe>hehe
05:35<appe>as an idea, of course
05:35<@peter1138>one tick every ~ 19 minutes
05:36<@peter1138>that would be painful
05:36<appe>btw
05:36<appe>you guys always use the fast-forward button?

06:35<papa>hey
06:35<z-MaTRiX>ho
06:35<papa>why do i get Erro:failed to find agraphics set?
06:35<papa>i installed openttd 1.1.3 on ubuntu using a .deb from the site
06:35<z-MaTRiX>because you dont have one ?
06:35<papa>i have openttd.grf
06:35<papa>does that count?
06:36<papa>no_sound.obs ogfxh_tropical.grf opntitle.dat orig_win.obg

06:36<papa>ogfxe_extra.grf openttd.grf orig_dos.obs
06:36<@planetmaker>and where's opengfx.obg?
06:37<@planetmaker>why didn't you install OpenGFX via your package manager, too? It should be a recommended install for OpenTTD
06:38<papa>oh
06:38<papa>that makes sense
06:41<papa>thx brah
06:42<appe>uhm
06:42<appe>is the standard maps and stuff also made as grfs?
06:43<norbert79>Standard maps?
06:44<norbert79>you mean heightmaps and scenarios? Those can be downloaded using the game's built-in downloading feature
06:44<appe>no, the type of map (tropical, etc) that comes with the game
06:45<@planetmaker>grf stands for "graphics resource files"...
06:45<appe>i see
06:45<@planetmaker>a NewGRF of course can totally re-define what "tropical climate" means
06:45<appe>i thought it was used only as additional information
06:45<appe>oh
06:45<appe>aha
06:45<appe>grf != newgrf
06:45<@planetmaker>yes and no
06:45<@planetmaker>grf includes the base sets.
06:46<@planetmaker>But generally NewGRF is a grf, too
06:46<appe>a newgrf is of course a grf, but the "new" is added to mark that it's not a part of the core?
06:46<@planetmaker>yes
06:46<appe>i see, thank you.
06:46<@planetmaker>you're welcome
06:46<Markk>appe: Get back to work now.
06:46<norbert79>Markk: Look who's talking ;-)
06:46<Markk>You shouldn't play with OTTD or yourself right now. :(
06:47<Markk>norbert79: :)
06:48<@planetmaker>Markk: why should he? It' a public holidy today ;-)
06:48<Markk>Nope. :)
06:48<Markk>Not here.
06:48<Markk>And I know he's at work, or atleast should be. :D
06:48<@planetmaker>see. Broaden your horizon ;-) :-P (scnr)

07:04<Eddi|zuHause>nah, there have been way worse :p
07:05<@peter1138>newgrf whales?
07:05<@peter1138>is that a ship type?
07:06<@peter1138>transports cargo type "jonah"
07:06<appe>:D
07:06<frosch123>do whales fly when filled with helium?
07:07<appe>nope.
07:07<Eddi|zuHause>i'm fairly sure they explode :p
07:07<Eddi|zuHause>(given that you can prevent the gas from escaping in the first place)
07:07<appe>think of a balloon
07:08<appe>the ratio between the thickness of the plastic and the volume inside it
07:08<appe>would be a bit difficult with a whale.
07:08<appe>unless you are carvy mc'knife
07:09<Eddi|zuHause>is that a reference of some sort?

08:48<Eddi|zuHause>now it's getting totally weird... it complains that bitmask entries cannot be > 31, but after make clean it works...
08:49<@planetmaker>something not re-compiled maybe while it should? Which resulted in an index being >31 while it is not when properly re-generated?
08:51<Eddi|zuHause>all i did was change src/cargo_definitions.pnml
08:53<Eddi|zuHause>hm, cargo wagons 1870-1910: transport liquids in barrels on open wagons?
08:58<@planetmaker>why not?
09:04<Eddi|zuHause>narf, these damn cargo multipliers
09:04<Eddi|zuHause>need code like:
09:05<Eddi|zuHause>if (defined(GOOD)) { capacity : 2*<cap>; cargo: GOOD } else { capacity: <cap>; cargo: first_refittable }
09:08-!-Doorslammer [7da86216@ircip1.mibbit.com] has joined #openttd
09:12<@planetmaker>eh? why not just via callback?
09:13<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: because if first_refittable happens to be GOOD, all capacities are halved
09:13<Eddi|zuHause>instead of the GOOD one doubled
09:13<@planetmaker>nah, just make an unconditional callback. Which returns the goods capacity and otherwise always the other
09:14<@planetmaker>independent of what cargos are defined
09:14<Eddi|zuHause>you mean cb15?
09:14<@planetmaker>36
09:14<@planetmaker>iirc
09:14<@planetmaker>but nml takes care of that
09:14<@planetmaker>you just set the units
09:14<@Terkhen>nml uses both IIRC
09:14<Eddi|zuHause>cb36 is subject to the multipliers
09:14<@planetmaker>nml handles both simultaneously
09:15<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: anyway, the default behaviour is plain stupid
09:15<@planetmaker>I still don't see your issue.
09:16<@planetmaker>Just set goods capacity via that cargo_capacity CB and you're done
09:16<Eddi|zuHause>it's more complicated than that
09:16<@planetmaker>in nfo
09:17<Eddi|zuHause>assume a wagon that is refittable to LVST and GOODS
09:17<Eddi|zuHause>and sets a capacity of 10
09:17<Eddi|zuHause>then by default it carries 10 LVST and 20 GOOD
09:17<Eddi|zuHause>now assume an industry set reshuffles the cargo slots, so GOOD comes before LVST
09:17<@planetmaker>the action0 capacity is totally unimportant, if you use the CB
09:18<Eddi|zuHause>now that same wagon carries 5 LVST and 10 GOOD
09:18<@planetmaker>http://paste.openttdcoop.org/show/608/
09:18<@planetmaker>^ that as target for cargo_capacity CB and it always should work
09:19<Eddi|zuHause>but then i have to know _all_ cargo multipliers

09:28<@planetmaker>If you use NewGRFs: make sure you start at a date where the NewGRFs supply vehicles
09:28<chats>i see i tried to start at 1850 for a longer game sorry i am not to good at this
09:28<supermop>should ogfx + vehicle sets supply earlier vehicles?
09:28<@planetmaker>it should not (yet)

09:29<supermop>didn't tto have a few from the 20's, so that when you started in 1930 they were there already?
09:30<@planetmaker>yes, one can start 1920+
09:30<supermop>i was testing my grf in alpine/north america/whatever the other day
09:30<supermop>with no other grfs
09:30<@Terkhen>supermop: IMO OpenGFX+ should supply earlier vehicles, yes
09:30<Belugas>hi
09:30<@Terkhen>as soon as I get nice sprites for earlier trucks :P
09:30<supermop>i didnt realize it bc i'd never played alpine before (i only had tto as a kid)
09:30<@Terkhen>hi Belugas

09:44<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: err... is the makefile creating the grf twice?
09:44-!-Devroush [~dennis@ip-83-134-175-22.dsl.scarlet.be] has joined #openttd
09:44<@planetmaker>no, why?
09:45<@planetmaker>it's calling nml twice
09:45<@planetmaker>once with -M --MT and once with --grf
09:48<Eddi|zuHause>ah
09:48<Eddi|zuHause>because i was getting the warning twice
09:49<Eddi|zuHause>what does -M and -MT do?
09:50<Eddi|zuHause>and might that be the reason why changing cargo_definitions.pnml does not immediately get recognized?
09:55<@Yexo>planetmaker: there is no reason to call nml twice
09:55<@Yexo>you only need to recompute the dependencies when the final nml file has been changed, and at that time you also need to rebuild the grf
09:55<@Yexo>the two go hand in hand
09:56<@planetmaker>I need to recompute dependencies when one pnml file or (if used) one of the graphics source list files changed
09:58<Eddi|zuHause>i suppose we should not allow fish in a mail wagon
09:59<@planetmaker>Yexo: alternatively I'd have to get rid of the option to do a separate dependency check - which is bad, if you remove a dependency. As then make will fail and not re-generate dependencies as it should
10:00<@planetmaker>(now dependencies are not used / read during dependency generation)
10:00<@Yexo><planetmaker> I need to recompute dependencies when one pnml file or (if used) one of the graphics source list files changed <- but if one of those files changes, you also need to recompile the final grf
10:00<@Yexo>hmm, true
10:01<@Yexo>I forgot about removing dependencies
10:01<@Yexo>perhaps ignore the output from nml during depcheck?
10:01<@Yexo>2> /dev/null ?
10:01<@planetmaker>hm, probably a good idea
10:02<@Yexo>maybe not, what if nml fails to generate dependencies due to a bug in the nml code?
10:02<@planetmaker>also true
10:02<@planetmaker>but then make already failed
10:02<@planetmaker>but yes, we'd not know why...
10:03<Eddi|zuHause>perhaps a --quiet option to nmlc?
10:04<@peter1138>V453000, "Unfortunately there is one thing in OpenTTD to remember - the depot counters are ... weird" < bug report?
10:05<@Yexo>Eddi|zuHause: good idea, added to issue tracker as #3106
10:05<V453000>I think it is reported already
10:05<Eddi|zuHause>V453000: it's not the depot counters that are off
10:05<@peter1138>(and the screenshot doesn't make sense, but if you're using invisible things, then i guess it's hard to see)
10:05<Eddi|zuHause>it's basically fs#3569
10:05<Eddi|zuHause>bounding boxes for shortened vehicles are still full length
10:06<Eddi|zuHause>(affects turning point in curves, reservations, etc.)
10:06<V453000>yes, that
10:07<@peter1138>iirc, curve speed was always based on number of wagons, not length
10:07<@peter1138>(not necessarily right ofc)
10:07<supermop>do only special types of fonts work in ottd?
10:07<Eddi|zuHause>curve speed is based on number of turns in the vehicle chain
10:07<V453000>that would be odd, shorter wagons would automatically slow down
10:08<@peter1138>supermop, no
10:08<supermop>whenever i set a custom font i just get a generic sans serif that doesnt look anything like it
10:08<V453000>as Eddi says, but the problem is that you dont "know" the length when the depot says something else
10:08<supermop>whether i use .ttf or .otf
10:08<Eddi|zuHause>the problem only shows if the last vehicle is (significantly) shortened

10:17<@peter1138>yeah, curve speed limits are still based on number of parts, not length
10:17<@peter1138>so that "bug" is expected
10:17<@peter1138>"does not fit in the station" ... well...
10:19<V453000>the only problem I have is that the depot tells me it should
10:19<V453000>but still, not a big problem
10:20<@peter1138>i look at that picture and i see a train fitting into the station...
10:21<V453000>which picture
10:21<@peter1138>http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?p=973864#p973864
10:21<V453000>ah
10:21<V453000>well, then why is the track behind the station occupied
10:22<V453000>but the train does load with normal speed
10:22<Eddi|zuHause>reservations are affected by fs#3569, station loading not
10:22<@peter1138>is it actually occupied, or not unreserved?
10:22<Eddi|zuHause>do you ever listen to what i say?
10:23<V453000>peter1138: the block behind the signal is occupied
10:23<V453000>I can make a larger screenshot to make it visible if you want

10:25<supermop>yes, but then i get an error on opening ottd
10:25<@Terkhen>what error?
10:25<supermop>one sec ill screen shot it
10:26*Terkhen just uses whatever name office uses for the font
10:26<V453000>peter1138: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/20419525/tl5wrong.png
10:27<Eddi|zuHause>hm... internet is acting up today... constantly getting dns errors
10:28<Eddi|zuHause>V453000: solution, put the invisible engine in front
10:29<V453000>interesting, works
10:29<@peter1138>i guess the problem is the concept of a wagon being on *a* tile
10:29<@peter1138>when clearly they are often on two tiles
10:30<@peter1138>thus you can enter and leave tiles independently...

10:40<@peter1138>peter1138, yes, we know
10:41<frosch123>whenever the last vehicle is <= 4/8 it fails
10:41<@peter1138>and to fix it requires messing about with sprite offsets or some such
10:41<frosch123>ironically newgrf specs say that for ttdp short wagons only work at the end of a train, while it is the other way around for ottd :p
10:42<Eddi|zuHause>"fixing" this must be relayed to the GRFs
10:42<@peter1138>probably the same issue in ttdp
10:42<frosch123>(mind that short wagons do not work for ttdp at the end as well for the same reason)
10:42<@peter1138>Eddi|zuHause, every single newgrf that uses shorter wagons?
10:42<Eddi|zuHause>peter1138: i mean like a special flag similar to 32px vehicles
10:43<@peter1138>oh. possible.
10:43<Eddi|zuHause>any grf not setting this flag has the old behaviour
10:43<V453000>well, my newgrf is going to have only 0.5 tile wagons for a reason :P
10:43<supermop>Terkhen, that suppressed the error for Transport, but not for Minion
10:43<supermop>and in game the medium font still does not look like transport
10:44<@Terkhen>minion is truetype?
10:44-!-erik1984 [~erik1984@vhe-490300.sshn.net] has quit [Quit: Doei!]
10:44<supermop>minion is otf
10:44<supermop>i think
10:44<supermop>transport is ttf
10:44<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: ottd should put the vehicle on the tile which is in the middle of the shortened vehicle, not of a 8/8 vehicle
10:45<frosch123>no need for a flag in a newgrf
10:45<norbert79>supermop: OTF might not be supported by OpenTTD. it's a different format
10:45<frosch123>only for a complicated savegame conversion
10:45<Eddi|zuHause>frosch123: but that changes the values for var45 etc
10:45<supermop>ok
10:45<supermop>that's a shame but understadable
10:45<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: you mean it fixes them? :p
10:45<supermop>but i dont get why the transport still does not appear
10:46<norbert79>supermop: Guess noone really came up with the need of supporting OTF
10:47<supermop>ah, about 90% of my fonts are otf, never thought about it until now
10:47<Eddi|zuHause>frosch123: and how do you intend to handle sprite offsets?
10:47<Eddi|zuHause>frosch123: they'd depend on travel direction
10:47<frosch123>yes
10:47<frosch123>the bounding box also depends on travel direction
10:48<frosch123>just add two more values to the table
10:48<supermop>ok I just tried the same thing with a true type font 'commercial script' copying the name out of MS Word, and still get that 0x1 error
10:48<Eddi|zuHause>but the anchor point is always the back (hidden) corner of the bounding box
10:48-!-Br33z4hSlut5 [~static.kp@92.68.154.34] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:48<frosch123>no
10:48<frosch123>not for vehicles
10:48<Eddi|zuHause>so if the vehicle drives towards you, and you shorten the bounding box, you need to offset the anchor point, where you didn't before
10:49<supermop>likewise with Bank Gothic
10:49<frosch123>Vehicle::x_offs any ::y_offs are already orientation specific
10:50<@Terkhen>supermop: Arial works?
10:52<supermop>lets see
10:52<@Terkhen>did you download the 9x binary/installer?
10:52<@peter1138>norbert79, openttd doesn't support fonts, treetype does
10:52<@peter1138>if freetype doesn't support otf... well
10:53<supermop>arial gives no errors, and looks like arial
10:53<supermop>but
10:53<supermop>I dont want arial in my game....
10:53<norbert79>peter1138: That arises a question since Freetype does support it
10:54<@peter1138>(heh, treetype :S)
10:55<@Terkhen>supermop: then I'm guessing that freetype does not support those fonts, but I don't know why
10:56*Terkhen never had those problems with the fonts that are included with windows, office or linux
10:56<supermop>bank gothic is included with office
10:57<@Terkhen>not with mine
10:58<supermop>i am sure i used it to write essays in highschool (before i had any adobe fonts etc)
11:00<@Terkhen>it's not included in windows 7 / office 2007, that's all I know :)
11:00<@Terkhen>what about writing "Bank Gothic" instead of Bank Gothic at openttd.cfg?
11:01<supermop>no luck
11:01<supermop>it seems like if any .ttf fonts are supported, all of them should be...
11:02<supermop>just tried "Transport Heavy"
11:03<supermop>no errors, but it renders as Arial
11:03<@peter1138>Tahoma?
11:04<supermop>tahoma works
11:04<supermop>looks roughly more like tahoma than arial
11:07<supermop>although personally,
11:07<supermop>my goal isnt to have some random humanist san serif font
11:07<supermop>so i'd rather use the default sprite font than arial or tahoma
11:08<supermop>transport is a really good readable bold, so i thought it would work well at ttd scales

11:17<supermop>i cant figure out why transport does not work though, as it is also ttf
11:17<@peter1138>where can i get it?
11:17<@peter1138>oh, found it
11:17<@peter1138>might not be the same one mind you

14:01<+michi_cc>planetmaker: I think andy reported that Photoshop somehow saves the palette of PCX files reversed of PNG files. I've extracted the palettes out of PNGs, so which is why it likely fails.
14:02<@planetmaker>ah, thanks
14:02<@planetmaker>sounds like a "useful" feature, though :S
14:02<@Terkhen>:D
14:07<+michi_cc>No idea if there even is a formal specification of PCX, but it likely only contains "here by 256 palette entries" anyway :) And storing stuff reverse isn't uncommon, just look at BMP files.

14:25<@planetmaker>It's open source!
14:26<@Terkhen>andythenorth: full reimplementation of openttd in 3D
14:26<@planetmaker>andythenorth: climate-aware canals are > 2 years old ;-)
14:27<@Terkhen>no, they are only from yesterday
14:27<@planetmaker>uhm... no?
14:28<@planetmaker>Only for the TTD base set they're new
14:28<@Terkhen>oh :P

14:37<andythenorth>I believe there are two people forking for it? :P
14:37<andythenorth>should be done in double the time
14:38<@Terkhen>;)
14:40<frosch123>true, for 32bpp doubling the number of people involved might indeed double the time needed
14:41<andythenorth>it's probably near-geometric actually
14:41<andythenorth>adding four people probably increases the time by 12-16 times
14:41<andythenorth>due to communication ineffciency :P
14:47<andythenorth>is there any sane way to measure 'progress' for ottd development?
14:47<andythenorth>is it even a valid concept?
14:47<Rubidium>progress requires goals, doesn't it?

14:51<andythenorth>(less / fewer / s)
14:52<frosch123>andythenorth: number of open fs bug tickets is no good measurement. there are too few of them
14:52<Eddi|zuHause>there is no canonic way to measure progress. only activity
14:52<frosch123>it is between 10 and 30 for years
14:53<andythenorth>activity is measurable how? commits? irc discussions? forum threads? downloads?
14:53<frosch123>though maybe we were at 6 when releasing 0.6.3 or so
14:53*andythenorth has no reason other than curiosity to ask this

15:05<andythenorth>which is highly philosophical :P
15:05<@planetmaker>hehe
15:05<andythenorth>so is ottd dying? Or is that a tiresome question?
15:05<frosch123>[20:57] <planetmaker> I wonder why :-) <- today the majority of devs are not students
15:06<@planetmaker>yes...
15:06<frosch123>andythenorth: usually the goal of an open source project should be: it dies if noone cares about it dieing
15:07<andythenorth>thereby achieving its destiny....
15:07<andythenorth>as all code dies
15:07<andythenorth>so the 'perfect' open source project is a dead one?
15:07<andythenorth>as in 'complete'
15:08<@planetmaker>a game from fossils for fossils?
15:08<andythenorth>complete = perfect = dead
15:08<frosch123>planetmaker: oh, and the development is more spreading now
15:09<@planetmaker>spreadingß
15:09<frosch123>there is not only the ottd project, but also nml and opengfx
15:09<@planetmaker>?
15:09<andythenorth>and noai
15:09<frosch123>and other grf projects
15:10<andythenorth>and soon! 3D!
15:10<@planetmaker>that's probably one of the main reasons
15:10<andythenorth>and a gui made in squirrel
15:10<andythenorth>and other ideas that suck
15:10<@planetmaker>sometimes I wonder whether things wouldn't become easier to setup if we bundled graphics with OpenTTD
15:10<frosch123>andythenorth: well, none of the usual ottd devs has a noai project; resp. i guess admiralai has a marginal impact
15:10<V453000>andythenorth: dont you make fun of it, the 3D will bring a whole new wave of people! :D
15:11<frosch123>however, ottd is growing which makes it harder for new guys getting involved
15:11<andythenorth>we don't bundle opengfx?
15:11<Kogut>@noai - is it possible to add small thing to waypoints? ( http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?p=973719#p973719 )
15:11<andythenorth>:o
15:11<@planetmaker>it's not part of the main openttd package
15:11<andythenorth>bad out of the box experience
15:11<@planetmaker>the installer may install it, but not automatically
15:11<@planetmaker>yes
15:11<andythenorth>basically, 'batteries not included' :P
15:11<@planetmaker>kinda
15:12<Rubidium>planetmaker: the installer installs it automatically (it's enabled by default the first time)
15:12<andythenorth>we should just buy atari, and ship the original graphics

15:32<+michi_cc>One main reason for live TV deals is still the way to a satellite and back. While the use of cable transmission is increasing, remote TV trucks are still mainly satellite.
15:32<supermop>well its not illegal in the us if someone does something offensive on live tv, but most networks would cut it out anyway to prevent the bad publicity
15:32<@planetmaker>yes... and probably "Sky" goes via satellite. And then via <wherever> to a Russian server and back to this town ;-)
15:33<Eddi|zuHause>i once had a local radio station simultaneously in FM and satellite, you notice a significant delay
15:33<@planetmaker>yes... Also national radio is always a second or two behind FM
15:33<Prof_Frink>You notice a delay between FM and DAB, never mind satellite.
15:33<@planetmaker>(compared with their stream)
15:34<Eddi|zuHause>did DAB2 actually take off better than the last try?
15:34<Prof_Frink>DAB is great.
15:35<Prof_Frink>Much better quality than...

15:35<@peter1138>alway remember listening to R4 LW on the way down through france
15:36<+michi_cc>planetmaker: The satellite portion is mostly the remote truck to base station part, base station to broadcast station respectively cable TV head is increasingly becoming cable based.
15:36<Eddi|zuHause>what's R4?
15:36<Prof_Frink>BBC Radio 4!
15:36<@peter1138>BBC Radio 4
15:36<@peter1138>the one with the archers on
15:37<Eddi|zuHause>michi_cc: i'd have thought base station to broadcast station is likely "Richtfunk"

15:38<@planetmaker>Unless they uplink from the stadion to the satellite directly

15:58<@planetmaker>that highly depends on *someone* writing a patch.
15:59<Rubidium>XeryusTC: in what way is not being able to look at a pro game a limitation by OpenTTD? Why can't you just remove the password from the server, set one on the company and reduce the allowed number of companies to 1? After all, a bot can also change the password of a company
16:00<supermop>alright
16:00<XeryusTC>Rubidium: for how long has the server been able to change the password of a company?

16:04<@planetmaker>XeryusTC: yes, I don't know (anymore) either why it was changed ;-)

16:17<Kogut>Stupid question - I see in code mysterious GB ( StationID station_to_join = GB(p2, 16, 16); )
16:17<Kogut>What is it?

17:45<Elukka>hmm i did the same thing there i did with the compartment coaches.. it's a bit round but not much
17:46<Elukka>it looks kinda odd completely flat in that view, though it's an easy change
17:47<Eddi|zuHause>maybe make that pixel some colour inbetween the brown and the grey

18:36<Elukka>alright
18:36<Elukka>guess i better draw the other ones :P
18:37<Eddi|zuHause>the plan is to have the 3 axle wagons early, and the 4 axle wagons later, basically replacing the 3 axle ones
18:37<Eddi|zuHause>the D-Zug wagon must get different sprites altogether
18:37<Elukka>in game it looks like the wrong wagon's sprite sometimes overlays the next wagon, or is that just because i don't have that one patch
18:37<Eddi|zuHause>that leaves 2 versions of the 4-axle wagon, one with 70km/h and one with 100km/h (possibly with different running costs)
18:38<Eddi|zuHause>Elukka: yeah, drawing is occasionally wrong, not entirely sure why that is, or whether there is a way around this
18:39<Elukka>http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z113/Elucca/sprites.png
18:39<Elukka>it looks like the other wagon should go on top
18:39<Elukka>dunno if there's anything you can do about it though
18:40<Elukka>it's less noticeable in motion
18:40<Eddi|zuHause>partially the problem is that the wagon gets longer in - view
18:41<Eddi|zuHause>it would be less noticeable if it behaved euclidean
18:41<Elukka>hm. if the length of the coaches is alright, i'll go finish up the mail wagon
18:42<Eddi|zuHause>a 10lu mail wagon?
18:42<Eddi|zuHause>or a shorter one?
18:42<Eddi|zuHause>the value in the tracking table is not a realistic one yet
18:42<Elukka>well it looked like it used the same chassis as the 4 axle coaches

18:45<Elukka>that sort of thing
18:47<Kogut>Interesting "tower" on the left side
18:47<Kogut>what is this?
18:48<Eddi|zuHause>that is the braker's cabin
18:48<Kogut>but why it is elevated?
18:49<Eddi|zuHause>before brakes could be controlled from the engine, each wagon needed a person operating the brakes
18:49<Eddi|zuHause>the braker must have some overview, so the cabin is usually elevated
18:50<Eddi|zuHause>e.g. to see the engine
18:51<Elukka>http://www.brawa.de/typo3temp/pics/48228-gedecktergueterwagen-bremserhaus-kpev_bda841966d.jpg
18:51<Elukka>another one
18:51<Elukka>"Working in brakeman's cabins was dangerous, especially in winter because the cabins were unheated and draughty and there was little room to move around and keep warm. As a result brakemen frequently froze, sometimes even to death, placing the entire train at risk due to lack of braking power."
18:51<Elukka>the worst job
18:51<Eddi|zuHause>later a closed air pressure line was introduced, first to passenger trains, later to cargo trains. so by changing the pressure in the line, the engine can operate all brakes simultaneously
18:52<Pinkbeast>Um... vacuum brakes?
18:52<Kogut>interesting... thanks!
18:52<Kogut>bye
18:52<Pinkbeast>In a lot of places, air brakes are much later.
18:53<Elukka>yeah, like... 70's
18:54<Elukka>but you brits tended to have separate brake vans
18:54<Elukka>rather than a cab on each wagon
18:54<Pinkbeast>On goods trains, yes.
18:54<Pinkbeast>But what I'm saying is that we (like most places) went brakemen -> vacuum brakes -> air brakes because it's a lot easier to make vacuum with a steam locomotive than it is compressed air.
18:55<Eddi|zuHause>cargo trains tend to have less braking power
18:56<Pinkbeast>When's the vehicle in that picture from?
18:56<Elukka>around the turn of the 20th century i think
18:57<Pinkbeast>Huh. We mandated automatic brakes on pax trains in 1889, but I guess that was first.
18:59<Elukka>Eddi|zuHause: did they retrofit those coaches with continuous brakes when the brakeman's cabs started to disappear?
