03:33<Elukka>Eddi|zuHause: i'm messing with colors to get a grasp of how to work with an essentially unlimited color palette, and i think we can get some much nicer colors without the limitations of 8bpp
03:33<Elukka>http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z113/Elucca/Art%20and%20stuff/cets32.png
03:33<Elukka>just some quick adjustments, but i think it pops out better, besides being more accurate
03:33<Elukka>and it's really easy to make them brighter or darker or whatever

03:46<@planetmaker>moin
03:50<dihedral>hey ho pm
04:08<@peter1138>okay... given a string: A=Alice, B=Bob, C="Comma, test"
04:08<@peter1138>best way to parse that? :p
04:12<Eddi|zuHause>with a proper grammar?
04:12<@peter1138>don't bring my nan into this
04:13<dihedral>with a regex?
04:15<dihedral>[A-Z]=(?:\"([^\"]+)"|\w)
04:16<dihedral>ops, forgot to escape that last "
04:16<dihedral>of course that will not work if you start something like D="fish \" has quotes\""
04:16<Eddi|zuHause>something along the lines of: token = r"[A-Za-z]+", string=r'[^"]+', "list : ", "list : list ',' entry", "entry : token '=' token", "entry : token '=' string"
04:16<Eddi|zuHause>modulo whitespace handling
04:17<Eddi|zuHause>string = r'"[^"]*"'
04:18<dihedral>Eddi|zuHause, but you do not necessarily want to keep the quotes in the parsed content.
04:19<Eddi|zuHause>dihedral: that can be handled by an intermediate string token, that strips the quotes
04:20<Eddi|zuHause>and escaping can be done by string = r'"([^"]|\")*"' or something
04:20<Eddi|zuHause>r'"([^"\]|\")*"'
04:21<Eddi|zuHause>well, actually escaping the \ might help :)
04:21<dihedral>:-P
04:22<dihedral>why are you escaping ]
04:22<dihedral>:-P

13:18<Eddi|zuHause>is that an openttd bug? when a "read past end of pseudo sprite" error is encountered, all vehicles defined so far are still active...
13:21<frosch123>that depends on when the error occurs
13:21<frosch123>i.e. during which loading stage
13:21<Eddi|zuHause>i guess then varaction2 is read very late
13:21<Eddi|zuHause>but... anyone got a clue about the actual error?

15:39<andythenorth>Alberth: there's nothing I don't agree with, so nitpick reply not needed ;)
15:40<andythenorth>I don't know if the scanline renderer is needed - I haven't written the compositor yet :)
15:40<@Alberth>it was a first version to see how it worked imho
15:41<@Alberth>it looks like you want something more advanced :)
15:41<@Alberth>but perhaps changing the renderer is not the first priority
15:43<andythenorth>I think cleaning up the other pixa objects is probably more important

15:49<andythenorth>Alberth: taking some of your questions...
15:49<andythenorth>PixaSequenceCollection - somewhat overlapish with gestalt < yes
15:50<andythenorth>gestalt also knows how to handle the conventions for save, load etc

15:50<Eddi|zuHause>i find this use of the word "gestalt" weird
15:51<@Alberth>not a word borrowed from you?
15:51<supermop>gestalt has a different 'feeling' in english than german
15:51<supermop>we use it differently that you guys do
15:51<supermop>mostly in art and aesthetic theory
15:52<andythenorth>what does it mean in german?
15:52<supermop>i thought just 'design', right?
15:52*andythenorth visits the current source of all human knowledge
15:52<andythenorth>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gestalt
15:53<Eddi|zuHause>more like "shape" in general
15:53<@Alberth>andythenorth: I was wondering about the role of each object, ie what does each object do, and where is the border? Leaving it unclear maens it will get hard to separate things
15:53<andythenorth>that's a gestalt question :P

15:54<Prof_Frink>gepetpper.
15:54<andythenorth>Alberth: there seem to be quite a lot of quite small classes imo
15:54<andythenorth>although that could be fine
15:55<@Alberth>possibly, I am mostly trying to separate things, as it makes it more clear who does what

15:55<@Alberth>perhaps a bit too much
15:56<andythenorth>I'll put your proposed classes in a new doc
15:56<@Alberth>but it is hard to judge without a concrete definition of what they should do exactly
15:57<@Alberth>on the other hand, it makes the structure also more flexible, as you can derive a new class and hook it into the structure
15:57<andythenorth>+1
15:58<andythenorth>not sure how best to figure that out - talk you through making a gestalt? re-draft the spec?

15:59<@Alberth>imho make the classes more concrete in defining their purpose, and probably also some functionality that you want to have
15:59<andythenorth>k
16:00<andythenorth>spec then
16:03<@Alberth>writing a user manual may also work. It forces you to think about what exactly should be possible, and how to write it down such that a user can understand it. Only problem is that it is a lot of work :p
16:11<andythenorth>yup
16:11<andythenorth>I'm making the list of classes, but in-between work and house chores :P
16:20<andythenorth>Alberth: this lacks context - but something like a PixaSequenceCollection - what does it gain over a dict / list?
16:20-!-pjpe [ade6a119@ircip1.mibbit.com] has joined #openttd
16:21*frosch123 wonders about the correlation of the german words "Solarförderung" and "Olförderung"
16:22<@Alberth>Random guesses: Room to define/change order, handle pixa-mixing, loading/saving pixasequences (pixas :) )
16:22<@Alberth>in short, you may want to do other things than just have a mapping
16:23<andythenorth>ah ok
16:23*andythenorth was happy to construct that without help :)
16:23<andythenorth>but my dicts / lists in the gestalts got...messy
16:25<@Alberth>it often starts with simple data structs, which is good for experimenting
16:25<@Alberth>but the standard data structures cannot be simply extended in functionality
16:26<andythenorth>no
16:26<andythenorth>that's how I discovered the need for PixaSequence
16:26<andythenorth>ok - other questions were:
16:26-!-supermop [~daniel_er@rrcs-72-43-171-87.nyc.biz.rr.com] has quit [Quit: supermop]
16:27<andythenorth>z indexes? what are those?? < depth / drawing order when compositing
16:27<@Alberth>ah, ok :)
16:27<andythenorth>e.g. truck with 2 steel coils composited, draw the front most one over the rearmost ;)
16:27<andythenorth>flash / css term :)
16:27<@Alberth>makes sense once you hear the explanation :)
16:28<andythenorth>How would you control it? Just a fixed order, or something more fancy? < list?
16:28<andythenorth>something more fancy suggests setting bounding boxes, then calculating z positions? overkill...
16:28<@Alberth>would be fine I think, it sort of depends a bit on how many of these things you have
16:29<andythenorth>the drawing of them is controlled by magic pixels, so =< 256
16:29<@Alberth>I meant "more fancy than a fixed order" actually :)
16:29<andythenorth>did you have ideas for that?
16:30<@Alberth>a list would be a quite simple and adequate solution I think
16:30<@Alberth>but I was somewhat worried about the number of items
16:30<andythenorth>I think it should be fine
16:31<@Alberth>you could something like 'in increasing index number' over a range, and have a list of ranges
16:32<andythenorth>that would reflect how I plan to draw the pixels
16:32<@Alberth>that's a bit more compact, and would still be simple enough
