00:57<yrol>Greetings :o)
00:58<yrol>is it possible ( i looked but cannot find such a feature ) to search only in one specified thread in the forum?
01:03-!-Eddi|zuHause2 [~johekr@p54B73FDD.dip.t-dialin.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:04<SpComb>there's a search box at the bottom left
01:09<yrol>ah wonderful, thankees :o) i feared i had to read all 90 pages now
01:18<yrol>i use chills patchpack v13.5 ( altest version ) ( he apparently has left for good, according to a post in the forum, so i cant ask there/him ) and tried now half a dozen files that were linked to in the various threads, but to no avail... can someone here maybe help me with this problem? ( http://www.freeimagehosting.net/d5306 takes a while to load, sorry ) is this a known problem?
01:20<yrol>textexplanation: when i zoom out and move the map, the areas outside of the palyablemap have weird graphics and smear around when i move the mouse
01:21<Pinkbeast>I infer you are using Windows since you have told us nothing about what OS etc you are using.
01:21<Pinkbeast>... and I'm afraid that image is a bit teeny-tiny eyestrain-o-vision to really comment on.
01:22<yrol>windows xp sp3, yes with ottd v1.2.0.22553 and v13.5 of hills aptchpack
01:23<yrol>the issue is visible and i tried to explain it in text aswell :o)
01:24<yrol>one can also rightclik and download the image, then its 1900x1080
01:24<yrol>which shouldnt be more helpful, i think
01:25<Pinkbeast>Nope, still tiny. I suspect that's some dire Javascript from the image hosting site that tries to squirrel away the full-size version.
01:26<yrol>im just stumped, i downloaded and repalced files form many threads where it was said this or that needs to be done to fix it, yet nothing got fixed, i checked the installation procedure for the patchpack again aswell
01:26<yrol>ah, i see, i use NoScript,i guess, thats why i can download it
01:27<Pinkbeast>I use NoScript too.
01:27<yrol>ok
01:27<Pinkbeast>What newgrfs are you using?
01:28<yrol>oh, pleae dont say, it has to do with that °gulps°
01:28<Pinkbeast>Well, it doesn't do it to me on the Windows box here, same version of the patchpack...
01:29<yrol>here is the list: http://pastebin.com/2a0m2U7n
01:29<Pinkbeast>And starting a fresh game with no newgrfs is an easy test you could do.
01:29<yrol>GAH of course, what was i thinking...
01:30<Pinkbeast>... if it does cure it, it's only 6 more goes to find the offending one by interval bisection. :-)
01:30<yrol>ok, it didnt help, same error with no newgrf's
01:31<yrol>another try: http://postimage.org/image/1lot244bo/
01:32<Pinkbeast>And if you toggle the fullscreen toggle in Game Options?
01:33<yrol>it -does- kinda look like an alpha-texture related error
01:34<yrol>fullscreen checked at 1980x1050 & 1024 x768..same error

06:20<@planetmaker>http://devs.openttd.org/~planetmaker/patches/grid/grid_opengfx_composite.png <-- a new transparency setting? :-)
06:21<peter1139>and non-opengfx? :p
06:21<@planetmaker>has bad luck
06:21<@planetmaker>I can't provide non-grid tiles for that
06:21<@planetmaker>I must not
06:22<peter1139>new action 5?
06:22<@planetmaker>they'd have that option, if they use the non-grid base tiles newgrf as static newgrf, though
06:22<@planetmaker>yes
06:22<@planetmaker>but action5 which provides the grid lines
06:22<@planetmaker>checkout the dir of that png
06:22<@planetmaker>it contains the patch queue
06:24<@planetmaker>for unchanged base sets the transparency setting toggles light grid lines and darker grid liens
06:25<@planetmaker>you can test the effect if you use a non-grid newgrf, like ogfx+landscape or nogrid land
06:26<@planetmaker>I think the composite patch is currently not exactly up to date. I forgot to update it
06:27<b_jonas>if you're adding new buttons to transparency options, add one for hiding the railway fences too, and make the transparent industry button hide the smoke of power stations as well :-)
06:28<@planetmaker>That's an entirely different patch
06:28-!-AD_ [wilberforc@drinks.mountaindew.org] has left #openttd []
06:28<@planetmaker>two different patches actually
06:28<@planetmaker>and... isn't the smoke hidden in trunk?
06:29<b_jonas>planetmaker: I don't know, I haven't checked trunk for that
06:29<@planetmaker>then do that :-P
06:31<XeryusTC>b_jonas: railway fences can be hidden by turning full detail off under the wrench menu
06:31<XeryusTC>or the cog in ogfx
06:37-!-KenjiE20 [kenjie20@free.blinkenshell.org] has joined #openttd
06:37<@planetmaker>he's right, though. Transparency settings could use an overhaul. But the last attempt failed on detrimental desires which could not be accomodated consistently ;-)
06:37<@planetmaker>thus nothing was changed ;-)

06:48<b_jonas>XeryusTC: yes, I know full detail works, but that should be on the toolbar
06:49<XeryusTC>true
06:49<b_jonas>the smoke is more difficult, there's currently no way to hide it
06:49<@planetmaker>full animation should then go there, too. And town names. And signs. And ...
06:49<@planetmaker>b_jonas, as said: did you check trunk. Do that, if you didn't.
06:49<b_jonas>yes, I'll check trunk
06:49<b_jonas>wait
06:50<b_jonas>should I be use opengfx 0.3.5 release with trunk?
06:50<@planetmaker>0.3.7 actually
06:50<b_jonas>ah
06:50<b_jonas>I'll get that
06:50<b_jonas>but stable is okay, right?
06:51<b_jonas>I mean, I don't need an unreleased opengfx
06:51<@Yexo>when industries are transparant the smoke from the powerplant is completely hidden
06:51<@Yexo>in openttd trunk
06:52<b_jonas>there's yet one would-be-nice feature I'd like for transparency, but that's difficult because it involves drawing stuff
06:52<@planetmaker>which?
06:52<b_jonas>a way to show trees in such a way that you can see which squares have trees but without them covering stuff behind
06:53<@planetmaker>that'd not involve much drawing
06:54<b_jonas>maybe, but drawing small things like tree trunks can be more difficult than drawing huge buildings
06:54<@planetmaker>they basically exist already ;-)
06:54<@planetmaker>for the tranparency of the forest
06:54<@planetmaker>as its ground tile
06:54<b_jonas>hmm
06:55<@planetmaker>anyway, the main thing there is the coding work
06:55<@planetmaker>and yes, makes sense
06:56<b_jonas>yeah, something like those trunks could work
06:56<b_jonas>but it's not that easy
06:56<b_jonas>because you need graphics for them on sloped tiles too
06:56<b_jonas>and for rough terrain and snow etc
06:56<b_jonas>you can't use just the forest tiles
06:56<b_jonas>but they might provide inspiration
06:56<@planetmaker>they could simply be used as overly as the trees are used
06:57<b_jonas>possible
06:57<b_jonas>let's see, I'll build a trunk
06:57<@planetmaker>anyway, just providing sprites with different ground is... dead easy ;-) Just means to export different layers of the graphics file :-P
06:58<b_jonas>Yexo: thanks for checking by the way
06:58<@planetmaker>b_jonas, why do you think I told you to check trunk? >:-|
07:03<b_jonas>I'm building trunk now
07:08<b_jonas>indeed, in the trunk, hiding the smokes from the power station works
07:11<b_jonas>great
07:23<b_jonas>is it true that a bribe increases town ratings enough to build a station no matter whether the bribe is successful?
07:24<b_jonas>this appears to claim that: http://wiki.openttd.org/Game_mechanics#Local_authority_rating
07:24<@planetmaker>not true
07:25<b_jonas>ok
07:28<b_jonas>to increase ratings in a station, can I just use a truck that picks up cargo and drops it in a very close station, then carries it back to the original station?
07:46<Korenn>b_jonas: it might
07:46<Korenn>since I don't think it cares about transferring
07:47<Korenn>you might even be able to drop it off at the same station immediately ;)
07:50<b_jonas>I might even try to transfer it to a different station (without bringing back) and run the trains from that second station
07:50<b_jonas>because cargo waiting on a station also hurts the rating

07:59-!-mode/#openttd [+v glx] by ChanServ
08:03<b_jonas>also, could we have price estimates work even while paused, even if you could only do the actual operation when unpaused?
08:06<@Yexo>b_jonas: you don't need the second station to increase the ratings on the first one
08:07<b_jonas>Yexo: I need the second station if I also want to use the rating bonus for no or little cargo waiting on the station
08:08-!-Adambean [AdamR@82.hosts.reece-eu.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:08<@Yexo>ir make more trains instead to achieve that
08:08<@planetmaker>not necessarily. Just have a train load
08:09<@planetmaker>or sufficient trains to load (and transport away) the stuff
08:10<@planetmaker>i.e. always have one (or more) trains load so that the station remains empty
08:10<@planetmaker>still. No tactic will help you, you you have a monthly turn-over of a few 10k cargo units
08:11<@planetmaker>As then the average cargo amount will still be too high, even if you manage to transport everything
08:11<b_jonas>planetmaker: but if I transport every cargo to a second station very close, won't that help me?
08:11<@planetmaker>if you can transport it anywhere you can also transport it to the real destination
08:12<@planetmaker>so: no
08:12<@planetmaker>if a short distance travel helps you, more vehicles for the real route also could help you
08:13<@planetmaker>still, sometimes this local transport can be helpful. But then you have possibly the same station rating problem at the transfer station...
08:13<b_jonas>why, I can transport to a short distance with much fewer vehicles, right?
08:13<@planetmaker>so the problem just moved one station further
08:13<b_jonas>why does the station rating matter at the transfer station?
08:13<@planetmaker>cargo there will also decay...
08:13<@Yexo>b_jonas: in almost all cases the problem is not the amount of vehicles (you can always build more) but the capacity of the original station
08:13<@planetmaker>and it also influences town rating
08:14<@Yexo>station rating doesn't influence town rating
08:14<@Yexo>nor does amount of cargo waiting
08:14<b_jonas>hmm, cargo decay, true
08:14<@planetmaker>it influences the cargo decay
08:14<@Yexo>yes
08:14<@planetmaker>which directly relates to waiting cargo
08:16<b_jonas>still, even with the cargo decay I think it might sometimes be worth
08:16<b_jonas>I get more cargo from the industry
08:17-!-welshdragon [~welshdrag@client-86-31-15-90.midd.adsl.virginmedia.com] has quit [Quit: This computer has gone to sleep]
08:21<@planetmaker>you get the same, if you have a train load constantly....
08:21<@planetmaker>with full load orders
08:22<b_jonas>but the train can't constantly be in the station. you need multiple trains for that, possibly many if the destination is far away
08:22<@planetmaker>yes. so?
08:22<@planetmaker>you need to transport that cargo anyway, don't you?
08:23<@planetmaker>thus you need at least two trains, yes. But...?
08:23<b_jonas>no, I don't need to transport all the cargo
08:23<b_jonas>I can transport cargo with just one train
08:24<b_jonas>but still want a high enough rating that when the train arrives to the source station, that station already has a trainful of cargo
08:24<b_jonas>or I might want the station rating high just so an opponent gets less cargo from the same industry
08:24<@planetmaker>if that's to be the case you can just as well use two trains
08:25<@planetmaker>as it means one full load time = travel time
08:25<@planetmaker>and it means you can skip on the overhead of caring for the vehicles and a 2nd station
08:26<b_jonas>two trains might not be enough
08:26<b_jonas>but I guess you convinced me
08:26<b_jonas>this trick is rarely useful probably
08:27<b_jonas>I'll have to test
08:27<@planetmaker>it makes sense for very low production industries
08:27<@planetmaker>then the frequency of pickup is increased, if you transport by RV
08:28<@planetmaker>and shipping that to a somewhat regional hub which gets supplied by several such small suppliers
08:29<@planetmaker>but for any "normal" industry you'd quickly have dozens of RV just shuttling cargo. Not helpful, usually

08:49<b_jonas>wow, it's possible to replace road bridges under road vehicles?
08:49<b_jonas>nice technology
08:53-!-PierreW [~ttdlx@bnc.peterbox.net] has joined #openttd
09:01<@Terkhen>it shouldn't be possible
09:01<@Terkhen>what version are you using?
09:02<b_jonas>Terkhen: 1.1.3
09:02<b_jonas>it's possible even under a train
09:02<b_jonas>I just replaced a bridge under a train to wooden, and the train immediately slowed down to 32 km/h
09:02<Elukka>sounds good to me
09:04<@planetmaker>Terkhen, iirc it should be possible
09:04<b_jonas>I'll point out to this next time they close a bridge for months for repairs
09:05<b_jonas>I'll ask them to hotswap the bridge under my car instead
09:05<b_jonas>it doesn't even seem to cost extra
09:05<@planetmaker>Terkhen, otherwise a competitor could block you from doing so forever
09:05<@Yexo>that doesn't hold for rail bridges
09:05<@planetmaker>yes, they can (and iirc are) handled differently there
09:05<b_jonas>planetmaker: a competitor can do lots of other evil things with road
09:05<Elukka>why shouldn't it be possible , anyway?
09:06<@Terkhen>yes, that makes sense for road vehicles
09:06<Elukka>seems like a useful feature to me
09:06<@Terkhen>but not much for rail :P
09:07<@Yexo>you can also convert normal rail to electrified rail while there is a train on it
09:07<b_jonas>Yexo: heh, point
09:07<@planetmaker>iirc you couldn't do that always. That was quite ugly
09:07<@Yexo>indeed, that changed not too long ago
09:08<b_jonas>Yexo: but that doesn't make your train to immediately change speed, so it's easier to imagine it as being delayed to after the train in reality
09:08<b_jonas>the trains actually start to accelerate on the bridge if I replace it to a faster bridge
09:08<@planetmaker>as do cars
09:09<@planetmaker>they usually just accelerate much faster
09:13<b_jonas>hmm, could a newgrf define a "soldiers" cargo type that you couldn't carry on bridges or aquaducts?
09:14<peter1139>no
09:15<@planetmaker>soldiers on train or truck don't hurt bridges either ;-)
09:15<b_jonas>planetmaker: it's not the soldiers that do, it's the war
09:15<b_jonas>the war effectively destroys all the bridges
09:15<peter1139>if the bridge is destroyed then they won't go on it :p
09:16<@planetmaker>so your problem rather is: don't build bridges and de-struct all existing ones
09:16<@planetmaker>you can do that
09:16<@planetmaker>ill-posed question :-P
09:17<b_jonas>right, maybe in a wartime grf, bridges would be banned altogether, no matter the cargo
09:20<@planetmaker>ttd is a peaceful game anyway :-)
09:21<b_jonas>yep, except when I start to trap the road vehicles of an AI opponent
09:22<b_jonas>and then destroying them by running over them with a train!
09:22<b_jonas>boom boom boom!
09:22<b_jonas>sure, that breaks my station ratings too
09:22<b_jonas>one-way roads makes this easier than in ttdp
09:22<@Terkhen>that's not how wars are usually fought
09:23<Elukka>i think the real issue with wars in ttd would be that it's just not very entertaining to redesign your entire network for a temporary situation
09:23<Elukka>and then redesign it again when it's over
09:24<b_jonas>hmm, could it be worth to transport grain and livestock in separate trains just because UKRS allows faster max speed on one of them?
09:24<b_jonas>Elukka: you'd just simulate continuous war
09:24<b_jonas>you loaded a war grf, played the whole game under war
09:24<Elukka>that sure would be a long war

09:25<b_jonas>come on, time is not to scale in ottd anyway
09:26<Elukka>well i do think different kinds of scenarios with grfs to complement them could be interesting
09:28<Elukka>war seems, gameplay wise, anathema to a game that relies on stable economic conditions and business going as usual
09:28<Pinkbeast>I think it's worth transporting grain and livestock in separate trains _anyway_ because of the ease of running them fully loaded, provided that a small enough locomotive is available to make that economical.
09:29<b_jonas>running them in the same train increases cargo rating because they'er in the source station more frequently
09:29<@planetmaker>wild west economy: transport hunters and settlers one-way. And buffalo meat and bear hide the other ;-)
09:29<b_jonas>planetmaker: heh
09:30<Pinkbeast>Yeah, but if I run joint farm trains I'm always finding I want to adjust the consists for a bunch of trains which OTTD makes into a royal PITA.
09:30<Elukka>see, something like a wild west scenario could be interesting
09:30<@planetmaker>btw... does anyone feel like drawing fields?
09:30<@planetmaker>Like rice fields? Or... whatever grows in tropical climate?
09:30<@planetmaker>including all the usual growth stages the fields currently have?
09:30<Elukka>pinkbeast: you can always 'full load all cargo'
09:31<b_jonas>planetmaker: also, the buffalos exist as road vehicles that you must use to migrate hoards of buffalo cargo between their winter and summer places, which produces you buffalo meat cargo
09:31<Pinkbeast>Elukka> No help - now the cargo I have too much of is piling up.
09:31<Elukka>well, true
09:32<@planetmaker>probably it should remain something recognizable as 'grain', though. Given the cargo from farms

09:32<Pinkbeast>Fundamentally if the relative ratios of production change, I want to change my rolling stock to match, and this is a pain, and OTTD does not well represent the sort of situation where an industry with low production is served by a mixed traffic locomotive which has multiple duties.
09:33<b_jonas>Pinkbeast: I think a farm always changes the production of grain and livestock together
09:33<@planetmaker>how could it be made better / easier?
09:33<b_jonas>you can't have a farm producing much more of one than the other
09:33<Pinkbeast>jonas> Then you are wrong.
09:33<b_jonas>maybe it depends on the settings
09:33<Elukka>planetmaker: what do you need the fields for?
09:34<b_jonas>I'm not using the "smooth economy"
09:34<b_jonas>planetmaker: the Japanese landscape grf has some fields, but they're not perfect
09:34<@planetmaker>Elukka, we could get different fields for different climates. In either OpenGFX+ Landscape. Or maybe also directly in OpenGFX
09:34<Pinkbeast>planetmaker> What I've been thinking of is a facility to nominate a "master train" in a group (and I know that improving grouping facilities is on the list).
09:34<@planetmaker>b_jonas, they don't fit this purpose. Yes, I know them
09:34<b_jonas>in particular, it would be nice to have Indonesian style terraced rice fields
09:34<Pinkbeast>Then have a way to say for a group "make all trains like the master train".
09:35<Pinkbeast>This would trump all autoreplace orders, which would then be effective only on the master train.
09:35<Elukka>the tropical climate in ttd doesn't really strike me as a climate where rice would be grown
09:35<Elukka>and i still think the grass is way too blue in opengfx :P
09:35<Pinkbeast>So then I take the master train to the depot manually, remove a grain hopper, add a livestock van, and bingo.

11:49<@planetmaker>it needs to be explicitly supported by the airports NewGRF

11:49<@planetmaker>and welcome, DanMacK :-)
11:50<DanMacK>thanks
11:50<@planetmaker>and rotation is selected via the small arrows in the "view". It's not directly largely announced
11:50<DanMacK>that's what I thought, but tthey're greyed out...
11:51<DanMacK>would help if the grf was active in the scenario :/
11:51<@planetmaker>being active is quite a pre-condition, yes ;-)
11:52<@planetmaker>you'll not have luck with stable OpenTTD. You'll need to have to grab a nightly OpenTTD
11:52<@planetmaker>It uses some new NewGRF features which are not in stable

12:04<TrueBrain>DanMacK: be careful with those statements, it can be used against you :D:D
12:07<Eddi|zuHause>DanMacK: it should be possible to recode the small airport as seaplane port, but you won't get to differentiate between aircraft types, so all planes could land there

12:09<DanMacK>how soon before we can see actual seaplane ports?
12:09<@planetmaker>Yes it will. And if you give me (or zero.eight or y3xo) the sprites, we'll happily include a seaport version
12:10<@planetmaker>which still would have this limitation that it's "just another small airport"
12:10<@Yexo>I"m not sure that's actually possible planetmaker
12:10<@Yexo>unless all tiles would be at sea level
12:10<@planetmaker>Yexo: would be fine enough, I guess
12:11<@planetmaker>Though building it on the shore would be nicer, I didn't test the exact options so far, though
12:13<@planetmaker>Yexo: but even if it's only a "normal small airport on sea tiles" it IMHO would be a good thing to spark some interest
12:13<@Yexo>spark interest in what exactly?
12:13<@planetmaker>(if with adequate graphics supplied which match a sea port)
12:13<@planetmaker>in more diverse airports :-)
12:14<@Yexo>I think there is enough interest in that already
12:14<@planetmaker>and it'd be a case to demonstrate of what's also feasible
12:14<@planetmaker>already
12:14<@Yexo>the problem now being newgrf airports still not done
12:14<@planetmaker>:-)
12:14<@planetmaker>yes... and we're no wizards nor do our days have 48 hours. I know :S
12:15<@planetmaker>as usual there's many more interesting projects than time :-)
12:17<DanMacK>exactly
12:18<TrueBrain>we should move the orbit of the earth to get 48h days :D
12:18<TrueBrain>not that it would help .... but the idea is nice :P
12:18<TrueBrain>so cold, so cold
12:19<@planetmaker>TrueBrain: what does the orbit have to do with the day length?

12:19<@planetmaker>*24.5
12:20<b_jonas>reminds me to Jules Verne's novel Hector Servadac

12:58<b_jonas>I mean, you feed it smaller planets
12:59<KenjiE20>pfft, feed, just roll them like katamari's :p
12:59<TrueBrain>now you just make me hungry
12:59<valhallasw>TrueBrain: it will just be returned to sender when it's impossible to reach the intended destination.
13:00<TrueBrain>:D
13:00<@planetmaker>TrueBrain: these passages are usually announced. Just listen to your favourite news station
13:00<TrueBrain>NASA doesn't track all near-orbit objects
13:00<@planetmaker>And buy an Ariane V heavy to get it there ;-)
13:00<TrueBrain>they try to
13:00<TrueBrain>but they don't :P
13:01<TrueBrain>hihi, don't put a monkey in it, it might not come back :D
13:01<@planetmaker>well... it's hard. Ephemerides calculations in N-body simulations with many more unknowns... challenging ;-)
13:01<TrueBrain>poor monkey .. then you live in Iran, which is sad enough, and then you are send in space to die? It is so sad ...
13:02<TrueBrain>challenging doesn't describe it :)
13:02<TrueBrain>I mean, we can't even tell if Eris or Pluto is bigger ...
13:02<@planetmaker>Pluto... this inflated-ego dwarf planet
13:02<@planetmaker>who gives a shit? ;-)
13:03<TrueBrain>well, it scares me, that we can't even tell how big something is this 'close' to us
13:03<@planetmaker>http://www.popular-pics.com/PPImages/poor_pluto.jpg
13:03<TrueBrain>hahahaha :D
13:04<TrueBrain>owh, that is a really good one :D
13:04<@planetmaker>yeah... we had it as background of our conference laptop a few years back.
13:04<@planetmaker>I don't know anymore how many people asked me for that image ;-)
13:05<TrueBrain>hmm ..
13:05*TrueBrain ponders adding Cloud9 to OpenTTD dev-space
13:09<Eddi|zuHause>yeah, i immediately loved that picture back then

15:18<andythenorth>one day, I'll go too far in the BROS thread :P
15:19<Pinkbeast>But not today?
15:19<andythenorth>that remains to be seen
15:20<Pinkbeast>I was gently pleased with myself for keeping my mouth shut when the P1 SIM guy turned out to be writing a book about how to do an utterly impossible project.
15:23<Rubidium>I must have missed that post/thread :(
15:24<andythenorth>Rubidium: you could enjoin the BROS thread :P
15:25<Rubidium>oh, I didn't miss it

15:26<Rubidium>using word for a book... he really is going to do it completely and utterly alone, is he?
15:26<Rubidium>and I guess he needed a few hours more forced LaTeX usage before he understood what we were about
15:28<Rubidium>but then I've made ~30 people very happy LaTeX users by forcing it through their throat for a project (together with VCS). When we were at about 25% of the project they already were happy I pushed it.
15:28<Rubidium>though I guess smallfly is like andythenorth's junior devs
15:28<andythenorth>they are no longer my junior devs
15:28<@planetmaker>:-D
15:29<andythenorth>mostly they are now someone else's well trained non-junior dev, or someone else's problem :D
15:29<@planetmaker>no longer your devs? or no longer junior? ;-)
15:29<andythenorth>^^
15:30<peter1138>hmm, crap
15:30<peter1138>so apparently i've got a font that has one valid size, 13
15:30<peter1138>so we chose 13
15:30<peter1138>and it says it's an invalid size
15:32-!-supermop_ [~daniel_er@rrcs-72-43-171-87.nyc.biz.rr.com] has joined #openttd
15:33<andythenorth>13 is unlucky
15:33<andythenorth>I provide employment contracts that forbid the use of v13, etc
15:33<andythenorth>you have to use 12a, or skip 13
15:33<andythenorth>in version control, you should make an empty commit for r13
15:34<andythenorth>this fear of 13 is not entirely grounded
15:34<Rubidium>I'd call it 1π ;)
15:34<andythenorth>as my birthday is the 13th :P
15:35<@Terkhen>andythenorth: you should stop trying to change them
15:36<@Terkhen>what project will you use as an example to explain why VCS is useful then?
15:36<Rubidium>andythenorth: do you also forbid all version numbers that start with a 5 followed by a lucky number? As well as version 4?
15:37<andythenorth>Rubidium: no, but if you explain it to me, I might (please don't explain)
15:37*andythenorth also has a serious magpie problem
15:37<@Terkhen>what's that?
15:39<andythenorth>the magpie rhyme?
15:39<andythenorth>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_for_Sorrow_(nursery_rhyme)
15:39<Rubidium>a magpie is a lovely bird, isn't it? ;)
15:39*peter1138 still grumbles at FreeType
15:40<andythenorth>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Magpie#Folklore
15:40<supermop_>still cant get any margaret calvert fonts to work?
15:40<Rubidium>in any case... I won't say that 4 sounds like death (in quite a lot of Asian languages) and I won't say that 5 sounds like not (in Cantonese)
15:41<peter1138>no, dealing with bitmap fonts now
15:41<peter1138>Could not choose font size 16, nor best match 7x13. FreeType reported error 0x17
15:41<peter1138>0x17 means invalid font size
15:42<peter1138>7x13 is a font size that freetype earlier said was valid...
