01:19<Tintinfan>can sombody help :/
01:21<planetmaker>@topic get -3
01:21<@DorpsGek>planetmaker: Don't ask to ask, just ask
01:21<Tintinfan>ooops sorry
01:21<Tintinfan>right well I was wondering why dedicated server kept reverting back to 1.2.0-RC4
01:22<Tintinfan>when even after ive gone through and changed .cfg's and all :/
01:22<Tintinfan>(to 1.2.0)
01:22<planetmaker>what does the cfg have to do with the binary version?
01:23<planetmaker>or you mean generally the servers out there?
01:23<Tintinfan>im not sure, but there was a version thingy in there.
01:23<Tintinfan>no, my own server.
01:24<planetmaker>sorry, but that sounds to me like "why does firefox start when I switched to chrome" to me
01:24<Rubidium>that version is there for debug purposes; we often get/ask for configuration files in bug reports and the bug reporters aren't as concise/correct about the version they use, so we added it to the configuration file (which always overwrites the version)
01:24<planetmaker>my answer would be "you start the wrong programme".
01:24<planetmaker>oh :-)
01:25<planetmaker>I didn't remember the version being there, Rubidium
01:27<planetmaker>in any case, there's no need to adjust the version info in the cfg, Tintinfan
01:27<planetmaker>in fact doing so won't change anything

04:54<krinn>15 companies max, but are they range only 0-14 ?
04:55<TinoDidriksen>0-14 inclusive = 15
04:59<Eddi|zuHause>range 0-15 would be 16 companies
05:00<krinn>the question is not how to count :)
05:00<Eddi|zuHause>but we need one for "no owner"
05:00<krinn>but if companyID is store in a bit
05:00<Eddi|zuHause>[and occasionally also for "town owner"]
05:02<krinn>so could a companyID > 15 exist ?
05:02<Eddi|zuHause>i think OWNER_TOWN is 16
05:03*CornishPasty sets his companyid to 16

05:09<CornishPasty>Why does the OpenTTD dedicated server require a graphics set?
05:11-!-MNIM [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:11-!-Firartix [~artixds@] has joined #openttd
05:14-!-cypher [] has joined #openttd
05:18<krinn>CornishPasty, maybe because openttd knows 0 cars, and the graphics set not only gave it the graphics for the cars, but the cars themselves, the objects, with their properties... How about running a game with 0 objects?
05:19<krinn>CornishPasty, because i'm not sure default objects exists anymore
05:19<CornishPasty>What's the point of that though? Why can't there be a graphics set that has no graphics, that's default part of openttd
05:22<krinn>because your client must share the same newgrf, so if your server run a newgrf that define objects without graphics, it will run, but your client will have 0 graphics too, i'm not sure you will have a lot of clients in these conditions
05:23<CornishPasty>Hmm... Kinda stupid
05:23<CornishPasty>I hope it at least doesn't load the graphics in
05:23<CornishPasty>Like sourceds doesn't load textures, only polys
05:25-!-Elukka [] has joined #openttd
05:28<Eddi|zuHause>there is no such things as "textures and polys"
05:33<CornishPasty>Eddi|zuHause: There are
05:34<Eddi|zuHause>CornishPasty: this is NOT a 3D game
05:34<CornishPasty>Eddi|zuHause: I was talking about sourceds
05:34<CornishPasty>Or, I suppose it should be called, srcds
05:34<Eddi|zuHause>yes. and the sources know nothing about "textures and polys"
05:36<Eddi|zuHause>so what are you trying to say?
05:36<TinoDidriksen>Does it matter? OpenTTD graphics aren't exactly heavy. If the server loads them, so what...
05:36<Eddi|zuHause>CornishPasty: making exceptions around all sorts of stuff will make the code slower than just handling the graphics
05:36<CornishPasty>It doesn't really matter from a server perspective, but it's still just wasted effort
05:37<Eddi|zuHause>CornishPasty: only the output of the graphics buffer is skipped
05:37<Eddi|zuHause>CornishPasty: and the libraries are not compiled in
05:37<CornishPasty>Wait, what?
05:37<CornishPasty>How can libraries not be compiled in when it's just a command line flag?
05:38<CornishPasty>Unless it compiles itself at launch?
05:38<Eddi|zuHause>ah, no. in that case, only no window is created
05:39<CornishPasty>So if the DS can render graphics etc, can it render them to a file, say, for a screenshot?
05:40<Eddi|zuHause>you have to change the blitter, though
05:43<Eddi|zuHause>there's a "null" blitter, that really does (almost) nothing, and there's other blitters that handle the sprites internally
05:47-!-APTX [] has joined #openttd
05:50-!-pugi [] has quit []
06:00<Ammler>opengfx has a "nogfx" branch
06:00<Ammler>but since it does not really matter, we never caredabout it
06:01-!-th_gergo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:01-!-sla_ro|master [slaco@] has quit [Quit: DANGER is OFFLINE DANGER]
06:04<Ammler>maybe with adding 32bpp to opengfx, it could make sense again to make a nogfx baseset
06:05<Ammler>for having a smaller package
06:06<Ammler>rather than maintain a 8bpp and 32bpp version, imo
06:07<peter1138>iirc all grfs need to contain 8bpp normal zoom sprites
06:07<Ammler>opengfx "nogfx" works
06:08<Ammler>it also kept the gui sprites, so you were still able t use the menu
06:09<peter1138>yeah but i assume you were using the old container format, and just included empty 1x1 or something sprites
06:10<Ammler>I guess so
06:10<Ammler>(long ago) :-)
06:10<Ammler>hmm, s/works/worked/ then
06:12<krinn>but as now all newGRF are record and cannot be change, there's no more a way to have a game running opengfx-nogfx and clients opengfx-gfx newGRF no ?
06:16-!-goodger [] has joined #openttd
06:17<peter1138>opengfx is a grf, not a newgrf
06:18<peter1138>basesets can be changed with no ill effect
06:26<Eddi|zuHause>container version 2 is supposed to support both 32bpp and 8bpp versions of the same grf
06:26<krinn>GSSignList and GSSign.GetOwner doesn't make sense, anyone to clear it? If GSSignList return the list of sign create by the GS, then GSSign.GetOwner could only be the GS
06:27<Eddi|zuHause>but i guess changing the action14 is not supported in those cases
06:27<Eddi|zuHause>so e.g. DOS and Windows versions can't be unified
06:28<peter1138>there's no reason for dos/windows versions
06:28<krinn>and if i need to GSCompanyMode to a companyID to read its sign, the GSSign.GetOwner is never use as i could just record the company orwner i have switch too
06:29<krinn>GSSignList: Create a list of signs your company has created <- it would make sense if GSSignList return all tiles create by all companies to need to GSSign.GetOwner func
06:31<Eddi|zuHause>peter1138: maybe if TTDPatch gained container version 2 support :)

07:36<Iviv>I'd like to thank whoever wrote the instructions on compiling openttd through MinGW, they're very well writen
07:43<Iviv>Is there anyone here who knows about compiling with MinGW?
07:43<Iviv>or perhaps about compiling in general
07:44<zxbiohazardzx>what you need to know about it?:P
07:44<Iviv>Including a .patch file
07:44<Iviv>I'm currently going through the instructions here:
07:44<zxbiohazardzx>there is a hint on the forums on how to apply a patch before compiling
07:44<Iviv>Ooh, there is? Where is this hint located?
07:45<zxbiohazardzx>commands presented there are mingw afaik so
07:46-!-Kurimus [] has joined #openttd
07:47<Iviv>oh. When compiling liblzo2 apparently my compiler failed the ACC conformance test. Does this matter?
07:48<zxbiohazardzx>not really sure, not that much into it
07:48<Iviv>okie, no worries
07:49<Iviv>Oh. Ran the command again and it passed the test this time
07:50<Iviv>ah well, go figure. Onwards!
08:04<Iviv>Do you know about libicu? It says that it handles the natural sorting of lists. What does that actually mean? XD
08:04<Iviv>I don't need the right-to-left scripts, its just that sorting line which has me confused
08:06<CornishPasty>Iviv: natural list sorting, a1, a2, a3, a7, a8, a10. Non-natural a1, a10, a2, a3, a7, a8
08:07<Iviv>Aah, thanks! How often does that come up in OpenTTD? Its not something I've noticed in any lists, though equally I've not ever looked out for it specifically
08:08<Skau1>is there a admincommand that can be used to enable the possibility to remove industries?
08:08<CornishPasty>I think it helps with automatically numbered trains, i.e. Train 1, Train 2, etc.
08:08<CornishPasty>Not entirely sure though
08:08<Iviv>Ah, good point. Better do that then
08:09<krinn>Iviv, a lot as all AI/GS scripts need it too
08:09<Iviv>Thanks, krinn
08:11<Skau1>or any way it can be enabled after a server is started
08:31<Iviv>Me again. Got all the other things downloaded and compiled now, just starting on the openttd part now. I require a certain build, which I've found on the site. However, the development FAQ recommends using Mercurial or Git to download them as its easier to patch
08:34<Iviv>Is it possible to use Mercurial or Git to get a specific older revision, since the patch apparently only works for a certain revision
08:42<Iviv>Awesome. Would I do it through mingw?
08:47<Skau1>should i take that as a no? :P

09:08<zxbiohazardzx>the grfID is exactly the same
09:08<zxbiohazardzx>yet OTTD wont recognise it as the same GRF
09:08<zxbiohazardzx>is the checksum that important?

09:17<zxbiohazardzx>yeah not found
09:17-!-supermop [] has joined #openttd
09:17<zxbiohazardzx>and i even checked the "usual" GRF sources i used, like ottdcoop etc
09:18<zxbiohazardzx>but i just cant find the matching version for the dutchtramset
09:18<zxbiohazardzx>i got the RC1 from banana's
09:18<zxbiohazardzx>its GRFID is the same
09:18<zxbiohazardzx>but MD5 isnt
09:18<zxbiohazardzx>and the game wont detect it as being the same GRF or a "similar/updated version was used" (yellow)
09:19<krinn>set r87 match your md5
09:19<zxbiohazardzx>so i have to hunt for r87
09:19<krinn>well, it seems, good hunt :p
09:19<zxbiohazardzx>hate that r26 is not compatible/overwriting it
09:19<zxbiohazardzx>anyone have a clue why it wont overwrite if they are same?
09:19-!-theholyduck [~holyduck@] has joined #openttd
09:20<krinn>considering the strange list that newGRF have, it will happen again
09:20<zxbiohazardzx>yeah but again the question is why
09:20<zxbiohazardzx>is it because of the DTS coding/coders?
09:21<krinn>something to ask to the newgrf authors
09:22<zxbiohazardzx>Revisie 87:fc83c3a6c1e8
09:22<zxbiohazardzx>lol lol lol

09:22<zxbiohazardzx> Feature #2904: Make compatible with RC
09:22<zxbiohazardzx>badum tss
09:26<zxbiohazardzx>anyway ill poke foobar about it
09:27<zxbiohazardzx>meh i got the file from a friend, huzzay for Romazoon :)
09:28<krinn>google record md5 of file too, so the name+md5 could have answer it maybe
09:29<zxbiohazardzx>nah i got them from Romazoon, so i can at least play again :)
09:29<zxbiohazardzx>cincinidi game :)
09:29<zxbiohazardzx>the old one we played over the network
09:29<zxbiohazardzx>quite well played map :)
09:34<Iviv>Hmm, an apparent issue with the mingw32 install guide, assuming I've not some something wrong. It doesn't mention installing lzma, and openttd complains when I ./configure it
09:35<Iviv>Warning: lzma was not detected or disabled
09:35<Iviv>warning: openTTD doesn't require lzma, but it does mean that many features, etc etc
09:37<lugo>xz = lzma, afaik
09:37<lugo>or is part of..
09:37<Iviv>I thought that might be the case, but I tried installing that again but no change
09:38<lugo>mmh then there is
09:39<lugo>well, "Users of LZMA Utils should move to XZ Utils" ;)
09:42<Iviv>Yeah, its weird since I have xz: wget
09:46<TWerkhoven[l]>afaik theres a configure option allowing you to turn off the lzma dependancy
09:46<TWerkhoven[l]>had to do that when i configured linux sources
09:47<lugo>but the feeeaatures
09:47<Iviv>Also, I don't know if it matters ( I don't think so), but I'm trying to compile a version that was patched in linux. That wouldn't matter, would it?
09:48<Iviv>Me and a friend run a server, we wanted to add in the daylength patch. He compiled the version for the server fine, but he has no idea about compiling for windows, but sent me the patched source code, which I'm trying to compile in mingw
09:52<Iviv>I'll try compiling the 5.0.2 version of xz instead. Do I need to 'uninstall' the 5.0.3 version I currently have?
09:52<lugo>have you tried installing the sole lzma package?
09:53<Iviv> From that page?
09:53<Iviv>will give that a go, should I stull use ./configure --enable-static --disable-threads when compiling?
09:53<lugo>can't be bad to have both nstalled i guess
09:54<lugo>ehm no idea ;)
09:54<Iviv>XD Well, I can't see anything bad happening if I don't

10:54<Skau1>yes, but the production rate never increases
10:54<Iviv>Its compiling!
10:55<Rubidium>Skau1: that's not statistically impossible
10:56<Skau1>it increases sometimes.. but its been like that for hours and hourse without getting higher than 100k liters
10:56<Rubidium>it could even close
10:57<Skau1>one of my rigs have about 2 million per month
11:10<Skau1>How does refitting work?

12:07<Iviv>Can I set it up with a windows gui?
12:07<frosch123>might replace \ with / in paths maybe
12:08<Iviv>Don't the newgrfs all go into the <user>\documents folder though? Or are they also copied to the actual install folder when enabled?
12:08<frosch123>yes, you need to copy the content of that openttd folder to ~/.openttd
12:09<Iviv>Rightyo, I'll give that a go. Thanks!

14:17<@Alberth>valuables are nothing special, they are just another cargo
14:17-!-andythenorth [] has quit [Quit: andythenorth]
14:18<@Alberth>there is a graph with cargo payments, which may be of interest to you
14:19<Skau1>Alberth: Wiki says it is the most paid cargo
14:19<Markk>I discussed with my gf if it was danish or norwegian.
14:19<Markk>None of us could say.
14:19<Markk>But I guess it's norwegian now. :)
14:19<Skau1>if what was danish or norwegian?
14:20<Markk>Your town names.
14:20<Skau1>Skauen = Skau1
14:20<Skau1>in norwegian 1 is en
14:20<Markk>Same in Swedish.
14:21<Markk>Ah, now I'm with you. :)
14:21<Skau1>ett två tre fyra fem
14:21<Markk>But I saw "AS", and from what I know it's AS in both Noreg and Denmark.
14:21<frosch123>just look at the currency :p
14:22<frosch123>not danish
14:22<Skau1>We all use Kr
14:22<Markk>We have kronor in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, mate.
14:22<Skau1>Norway, Sweden and Denmark
14:22<Markk>And we'll have monarcs.
14:23<frosch123>what? hmm, i think only of øre when thinking of denmark
14:23<Markk>Öre is like cents in USD and Euro.
14:23<Skau1>AS is the same as LLC
14:23<Skau1>AksjeSelskap .. Limited Company
14:23<Markk>100 öre/øre is 1 krona.
14:24<Markk>Skau1: ah
14:24<frosch123>yeah, in now realize that...
14:24<Skau1>we dont have 50 norwegian øre anymore
14:24<frosch123>maybe it is because everything is more expensive in norway
14:24<Markk>Skau1: Same in Sweden.
14:24<frosch123>i think i never had norwegian öre
14:24<+michi_cc>Skau1: Valuables might be what pays the most for a short, fast hop relatively seen, but generally coal makes the most profit because it loses less over time, so it is ideal for cross-map transport.
14:24<Skau1>you still have 10 Kr bills? :P
14:24<frosch123>while i remember having 50 danish öre
14:25<frosch123>currently i only have rouble
14:25<Markk>We removed 50 öre in Sweden in October 2010, and then I moved to Ireland (whom used Euro).
14:25<frosch123>10 rouble in paper from 1997, and 10 rouble in metal from 2008 :p
14:26<Skau1>Sweden mostly accept Euros too, right?
14:27<Markk>Some places, yes, but mostly tourist shops and such.
14:27<Markk>And then you'll get the change in kronor.

16:11<Eddi|zuHause> <V453000> is it possible to make notepad able to collapse for example {} blocks like it is able to for example collapse <head></head> tags in html? <-- usually, that is tied to the method of syntax highlighting used. so pick a language that uses {}, like C++ or java
16:12<Eddi|zuHause>or, make a dedicated syntax highlighting for nml
16:12<V453000>that is what I feared
16:13<V453000>oh ...
16:13<@Alberth>usually that is pretty simple
16:13<V453000>so for example a java editor would be able to do that ?
16:13<V453000>like netbeans
16:14-!-Chris_Booth [] has joined #openttd
16:14<@Alberth>try it and see
16:15<V453000>ok :D thanks
16:16<Eddi|zuHause>V453000: notepad++ should just have a menu option to choose the language
16:17<V453000>yeah I chose XML there
16:17<Rienzilla>hey guys
16:17<V453000>ha, Dreamweaver seems to do the thing I need
16:18<@Alberth>hi Rienzilla
16:18<Rienzilla>I just found out how addictive openttd is :-)
16:19<@Alberth>it is just a temporary disease, lasts a decade or so :p
16:19<Rienzilla>I had an issue with station layouts yesterday
16:20<Rienzilla>I have a roro station, which is pretty much entry signal - branch - combo signal - waiting bay - exit signal - platform
16:22<Rienzilla>However, sometimes a train passes the entry signal, but takes a branch with only red combo or exit signals, blocking the entrance to the entire station until the train on the platform in front of it leaves

16:22<drac_boy>Alberth you're a silly one heh
16:22<supermop>make sure the exit signals are two-way
16:22<Rienzilla>why? The trains leave on the other end of the platform
16:23<drac_boy>Rienzilla thats not the point
16:23<supermop>the train pathfinder sees them differently
16:23<Rienzilla>so the entry signals one way, and the exit signal 2-way?
16:23<supermop>with two way signals, the train prefers whichever is green
16:24<drac_boy>2-way means train would wait the signal before junction if they can .. 1-way means they "think" noone else would use the junction and plow up to the exit signal even if it wasn't meant to be
16:24<supermop>with one way, it prefers the shortest route path
16:24<drac_boy>not sure how else to word it right now
16:24<supermop>which might be red
16:24<@Alberth>wouldn't a path signal solve this?
16:24<Rienzilla>well, the thing is, it very rarely goes wrong even though the station is pretty heavily used
16:24<Eddi|zuHause>supermop: that hasn't been true for so many years now
16:24<drac_boy>anyone know what I'm trying to explain btw?
16:24<Rienzilla>Alberth: I split the station in two with a path signal
16:24<supermop>Eddi|zuHause: I haven't used exit signals for so many years now
16:25<Rienzilla>so it's not completely blocked now if a train overshoots the entry signal
16:25<Rienzilla>How do I make a screenshot :)
16:25<@Alberth>although I normally use an application to grab just a little piece of the window
16:26<Rienzilla>hold on
16:26<@Alberth>the idea of a path signal is that it only goes to a platform if there is one free
16:26<Rienzilla>well, a path signal would make a train continue to the next safe stopping point
16:27<Rienzilla>so if there's a red signal before the platform it'll simply continue
16:27<Rienzilla>Maybe a path signal without any other signals would work
16:27<@Alberth>so don't put one there, as it is not a safe place to stop :p
16:27<Rienzilla>that seems too easy lol

16:27-!-mode/#openttd [+o Belugas] by ChanServ
16:27<supermop>with path signals, you do not need a signal at the 'rear' of the platform, only the far end
16:28<supermop>and multiple trains can use the station throat at once
16:28<@Alberth>Rienzilla: if you want it more difficult, add one but in reverse :)
16:28<drac_boy>supermop don't you sometimes use a one-way pbs signal facing the platform to avoid one train blocking the whole junction just because it was slow to get out of the junction when a path still exists for another train?
16:28<@Alberth>with a 2-way path signal
16:28-!-Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
16:29<Rienzilla>I do that on most smaller stations
16:30<Rienzilla>hmm lol, just the path signal is fine indeed it seems :)
16:33<Rienzilla>so with path signals, the entry-exit-combo signals are pretty much useless :)
16:34<@Alberth>there are still some advanced uses, I think
16:34<@Alberth>but you'll have to ask the openttdcoop gurus for that :)

16:41<drac_boy>ok? :)
16:41<@Alberth>programmable signals is not in plain OpenTTD
16:42<drac_boy>whats "plain"? :p

17:06<Iviv>evening all
17:07<Iviv>When running a dedicated server, is it possible to change anything in the openttd.cfg withough requiring a restart?
17:08<Rubidium>depends on the settings and what you want
17:09<Rubidium>the basic premise is that OpenTTD writes to the configuration file when closing down and only reads it when starting
17:09<Rubidium>there is a setting that allows rereading the configuration file when starting a new game in the dedicated server
17:09<Iviv>Thanks, figured as much
17:09<Rubidium>alternatively you can change settings using rcon
17:09-!-fonsinchen [] has joined #openttd
17:10<Iviv>Ooh, what can you change like that? I assume there's limitations
17:11<Iviv>Ideally looking at chaning never_expire_vehicles but that's a biggy that I doubt can change without a server restart
17:11<Rubidium>most settings for new games and quite a few for the current game
17:11-!-Zeknurn [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:11<Iviv>Yeah, its for a server I'm running that's mid-game
17:11-!-Zeknurn [] has joined #openttd
17:12<Rubidium>I think you can't change that setting on a running MP game
17:12<Rubidium>it's actually a setting stored in the savegame, so changing the config won't even change it for a loaded game
17:12<Iviv>Yeah, didn't think so
17:12<Iviv>Oh, really?
17:13<Iviv>Thanks for the help on that :)

17:20<Nat_aS>what's the point of being able to rotate the square airports? Just asthetics?
17:21<Nat_aS>because I think it's funny that airports can be rotated by other buildings can't
17:22<V453000>I guess to make you able build them not only like a*b but also b*a
17:22<V453000>to fit in different places
17:22<V453000>which justifies only 2 rotations, but ... :)
17:23<Nat_aS>yeah, when I heard it was rotatble I just assumed you could make them longer or taller
17:23<Nat_aS>with the rotations just being mirrored sprites
17:23<Nat_aS>why did people bother drawing the backs of airports when all the other buildings don't have backs?
17:23-!-Prof_Frink [] has joined #openttd
17:25<Nat_aS>and if airports are rotatable, what's stoping people from hacking in a sim city 2000 esque pseudo map rotation.
17:26<Nat_aS>where the map rotates, but the buildings rotate as well so you never really see the backside.

17:43<Eddi|zuHause>"just new sprites" is more difficult than you think
17:43<Eddi|zuHause>you can't require opengfx, for example. and it's silly to push opengfx-style graphics into the original graphics

22:49<Skau1>What is the best way to merge many lines into one?
23:04<Rhamphoryncus>That has no simple answer
23:06<Rhamphoryncus>Assuming they don't overload it just connect them
23:07<Rhamphoryncus>The issue is more about how to increase the capacity while still being a single line
23:07<Rhamphoryncus>A signal spacing of 2 helps. More HP/ton helps (faster acceleration means smaller gaps from the stop/start of a merge)
23:08<Rhamphoryncus>Longer trains (with the same HP/ton) helps due to having less gaps
