04:02<andythenorth>yes andythenorth has actually been playing a game
04:02<andythenorth>and has some....observations
04:03<@Alberth>it's called 'testing' :p
04:03<andythenorth>(1) FISH is stupid, it has diesel ships available in 1870, someone should tell the author
04:03<@Alberth>do you have oil wells at that time?
04:04<andythenorth>yes
04:04<andythenorth>and petrol
04:04<andythenorth>well, maybe around 1900 for those things :P

04:04<andythenorth>(2) 'auto-refit to specified cargo' won't partial refit
04:05<andythenorth>this is sad, and confusing because it uses the same gui :P
04:05<@Alberth>oh, I have not tested auto-refit yet at all
04:05<andythenorth>it's potentially awesome
04:06<andythenorth>(3) playing with 'freight weight multiplier = 6' is too hard, at least with UKRS 2 :P
04:06<andythenorth>(4) station newgrfs are broken by railtypes
04:06<andythenorth>(5) I dislike the dock in CHIPS and need ideas for improving it
04:08<andythenorth>(6) roadtypes are needed
04:08<@Alberth>with default trains, I use freight multiplier 5 to 10 :)
04:08<andythenorth>:o
04:08<andythenorth>suicide :P
04:09<andythenorth>with US train sets I use 6 or so
04:09<@Alberth>not too many hills :p
04:09<andythenorth>I play mountainous :P
04:09<@Alberth>sounds like fun :)
04:11<andythenorth>(7) I made canals much cheaper if FISH is used, this is good, canals are insanely stupidly expensive otherwise

04:23<spongie>Hi guys. I'm looking at the industrial station renewal tiles and theres a cool tile for having 3 tracks in 2 tiles (classification yard), but I can only make a switch for the two bottom tracks. The tile in the menu shows middle splitting to top, but in game when placed it switches from bottom to middle. Anyway to make it switchable to all three tracks?
04:26<andythenorth>spongie: no
04:26<andythenorth>I just tried
04:26<spongie>it doesnt matter because the pbs wont pick it up as a free rail anyway
04:26<spongie>not sure exactly what the use is
04:27<andythenorth>eye candy
04:28<spongie>hm.
04:29-!-telanus1 [~Barney_Er@196.215.173.116] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:29<spongie>i wonder if its done using nml
04:30<andythenorth>no
04:30<andythenorth>nfo
04:31<andythenorth>http://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/isr
04:33<spongie>do you think it would possible to make a tunnel and/or bridge that has implicit block signals throughout so multiple trains can use it at the same time?
04:34<Rubidium>in current official versions: no, theoretically: yes
04:35*Alberth likes bi-directional bridges
04:35<__ln__>theoretically, but you would have to rewrite half of the game?
04:35<Rubidium>Dutch experiments with bi-directional rail tracks earlier this year have not proven to be a complete success ;)
04:38<andythenorth>(8) CHIPS ain't that great, which is a shame, because I thought it was nearly done :|
04:38<andythenorth>(9) rivers are still no use in my game
04:38<andythenorth>rivers do at least look interesting

04:52<andythenorth>also this game lacks farm clusters
04:52<andythenorth>maybe they fail on small maps :P
04:53<spongie>im guessing there is no way to use the road crossing in ISR for actual road vehicles?
04:54<andythenorth>nope
04:54<andythenorth>try Quant65s new objects thing for that
04:54<spongie>nah im good.
04:54<andythenorth>it cheats by drawing 'station' objects over roads
04:54<spongie>is there something that isn't a super hack that would add something more than just eye candy?
04:54<spongie>i'm just experimenting with the grf's
04:55<spongie>something cool to recommend perhaps?

05:02*Alberth likes FIRS, an industry NewGRF

05:48<spongie>same for both 1.2 branch and trunk
05:49<@Alberth>sounds like you are missing something that the script uses
05:50<spongie>clean checkout
05:50<spongie>oh you meant as in some utility
05:50<@Alberth>yep
05:51<@Alberth>./findversion.sh does detection
05:51<frosch123>our script fails with svn 1.7 checkouts iirc, if you do not check out trunk, but some higher level of the repository
05:52<spongie>yeah, i just got it all
05:52<spongie>branches, tags and trunk
05:52<@Alberth>ie
05:52<frosch123>yup, then our script fails with 1.7
05:52<frosch123>it expects a ".svn" directory
05:53<frosch123>which svn 1.7 does no longer have everywhere
05:53<frosch123>also the format of "svn info" changed, so i think that fails as well
05:53<frosch123>but so far, noone who uses already svn 1.7 bothered fixing it :(
05:54<frosch123>and i cannot be bothered installing svn 1.7 if it is not in debian stable :p
06:00<@Alberth>even fedora doesn't have it

09:20<Ammler>but you might need to set the palette manually on older newgrfs
09:24<@planetmaker>well, you have in your cfg the 'default palette' which shall be assumed for newgrfs which don't declare their palette
09:25<@planetmaker>of course that will fail, if you use dos and windows-paletted newgrfs at the same time when they don't declare the palette
09:26<@planetmaker>opa: by default, I'd recomend you to get the windows-paletted newgrf as that is the default palette wich will be assumed when you made no changes at all to your cfg
09:26<@planetmaker>otoh, get ISR just from the online content... then you don't have to worry about versions ;-)

10:58<@planetmaker>ty, frosch123
10:59*frosch123 never saw snow on a model railroad
11:00<hackalittlebit>hold on
11:00<@planetmaker>I wonder whether town names belong there... Probably yes. But it would be nice to have a way to consider the NewGRF town names as an option in the dropdown, too. Even if not (yet) configured in the NewGRF list. But it might be well out of scope here
11:00<frosch123>hackalittlebit: google image search provides some hints :)

11:02<@planetmaker>ah, nice, frosch123
11:03<@planetmaker>frosch123: I actually wonder whether should remove the visibility of the old watery map edge...
11:03<frosch123>hmm, modeling footsteps in the snow on a model railroad sounds like a lot of effort
11:04<@planetmaker>it's a setting we can't remove. But do we need it for new maps?
11:04<frosch123>planetmaker: i like the expanding thing for those options
11:04<frosch123>and it's not at all about old vs. new
11:04<frosch123>but about choosing between island, inland or coast
11:04<@planetmaker>yes, I like that expansion for adv., too
11:05<frosch123>and FLHerne said he uses that setting every day :p
11:06<@planetmaker>:-D
11:06<@planetmaker>you find that statement probably for every single setting by one person or another ;-)
11:06<FLHerne>That's why you should have customisable menus :P
11:07<FLHerne>Then people can put in the options they use often

11:09<FLHerne>Menus would be good too though :P
11:15<hackalittlebit>frosh123: do 'new game' 'advanced' 'show al', it will show you that place behind terrain type is occupied
11:16<hackalittlebit>maybe put height beside map dimensions?
11:17<hackalittlebit>frosch123: read above
11:22<frosch123>hackalittlebit: you have either height or variety, not both
11:23<frosch123>and putting height next to totally flat makes a lot of sense
11:24<hackalittlebit>press 'se', 'terrain type hilly', advaced
11:25<frosch123>and then?
11:26<hackalittlebit>is that technically possible?
11:26<frosch123>what?
11:27<hackalittlebit>one widget in same position as other
11:27<frosch123>yes, you can switch between them then
11:27<hackalittlebit>then consider it done
11:27<hackalittlebit>and snow height?
11:28<hackalittlebit>I like it were it is
11:28<hackalittlebit>only shows up in arctic

11:36<frosch123>i only wondered what could be moved to the second column of the map part
11:37<frosch123>and moving snow line would open the option to move the rv side to the second coulumn

13:04<@Alberth>should I understand what that means? :)
13:05<@Alberth>are a Lim Kiln and a Brick works supposed to be next to each other?
13:06<andythenorth>I'm going to build one of these: http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=rolligon+brute&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=9JeuT43rEou58gPdtoyMCQ&biw=1263&bih=668&sei=c5iuT_fRIITH8gOklNnOCQ
13:06<andythenorth>using these http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lego-62mm-D-x-46mm-Technic-Power-Puller-Wheel-Tire-/120682978930#ht_1297wt_907
13:06<@Alberth>it's nicely convenient for a quarry :)
13:06<andythenorth>I'm using one large motor per axle for....more power
13:06<andythenorth>and I need to use differentials on each axle, or it won't be able to turn
13:07<andythenorth>but diffs mean one wheel can spin if it loses traction
13:07<andythenorth>if that happens for all 4 axles, the truck goes nowhere :P
13:07<@Alberth>ah, now it makes sense :)
13:07<andythenorth>usually the solution is locking diffs
13:07<andythenorth>but I don't have room for locking diffs
13:08<andythenorth>and I don't have room for one motor per wheel, which was my first choice :)
13:08<@Alberth>it's not big enough? :)
13:09<andythenorth>nope

13:51<andythenorth>meh
13:53<@planetmaker>muh
13:53<@Alberth>mooh
13:59<andythenorth>I should stop playing 'mountainous, high water'
13:59<andythenorth>:P
13:59<andythenorth>all land routes seem like a chore
14:00<andythenorth>I end up with 10 bazillion ships every time
14:00<andythenorth>and hundreds of feeders :P
14:02<andythenorth>also I need ideas to make CHIPS less crappy
14:03<FLHerne>ISR-style ground tiles, so I can fit it in with my dock better
14:03<andythenorth>which dock?
14:03<FLHerne>ISR-style one
14:03<andythenorth>the CHIPS dock is lame
14:04<andythenorth>but I hate ISR style ground
14:04<FLHerne>I've done a CHIPS-style harbour: http://www.tt-forums.net/download/file.php?id=156610
14:04<FLHerne>CHIPS ground is better, but ISR has so many more types
14:04<andythenorth>hmm
14:04<andythenorth>marico
14:05<FLHerne>That almost fits in, I'll be using Quast65's newobjects next though
14:05<andythenorth>the CHIPS ground is meh
14:05<FLHerne>...which are ISR-style, of course
14:06<andythenorth>the concrete is just blah
14:06<andythenorth>maybe it should have tile borders
14:06<FLHerne>Real concrete is blah too
14:06<FLHerne>It looks like concrete, which is good. Tile borders would be ugly
14:07<FLHerne>Mud platforms that matched FIRS industries would be good too: http://www.tt-forums.net/download/file.php?id=157250
14:08<andythenorth>how quaint
14:08<andythenorth>there's no solution to that
14:08<FLHerne>Eh?
14:08<andythenorth>well....maybe a parameter on CHIPS
14:08<andythenorth>I use the original TTD graphics
14:08<andythenorth>where the mud matches
14:10<FLHerne>Ah. Couldn't you use dedicated sprites in FIRS instead of OGFX mud?
14:10<FLHerne>Although OGFX is better anyway :P
14:10<andythenorth>that solution causes politics
14:10<FLHerne>s/OGFX/OGFX mud/
14:11<FLHerne>Why the politics?
14:13<andythenorth>because then FIRS doesn't match the base set
14:13<andythenorth>it's tedious
14:15<FLHerne>Can CHIPS not use the baseset mud then?
14:15<andythenorth>no
14:16<andythenorth>station spec is inadequate
14:16<andythenorth>known problem
14:17<FLHerne>Can CHIPS detect what baseset is in use?
14:17<andythenorth>no
14:17<andythenorth>that's not permitted as it could be abused
14:17<andythenorth>also
14:17<andythenorth>[shrug]
14:17<andythenorth>I don't really care, I don't use opengfx
14:18<andythenorth>same reason I don't fix the FIRS mud ground tile, even though it looks wrong
14:18<@planetmaker>No-one who makes bigger graphics sets cares
14:19<andythenorth>it's too much work to support both
14:19<andythenorth>nothing wrong with opengfx btw ;)
14:19<@planetmaker>except that no-one cares ;-)
14:20<andythenorth>it's probably what most players are using now?
14:20<FLHerne>How do FIRS mud tiles look wrong?
14:20<andythenorth>I imagine the number of players finding the original TTD graphics is a small fraction of openttd downloads
14:20<andythenorth>FLHerne: they use 'plain mud' tile, rather than 'mud with tracks'
14:20<@planetmaker>I dion't have statistics of the last half year.
14:21<andythenorth>opengfx substitutes the original 'mud with tracks' tile for a plain tile
14:21<@planetmaker>and I can only go by either bug reports or forums
14:21*andythenorth is stuck in 1994
14:23-!-Chris_Booth[ph] [~chrisboot@81.152.251.165] has joined #openttd
14:24<andythenorth>also what railtype sets are people in this channel using?
14:24<andythenorth>I might need to make CHIPS work only with Pikka's tracks
14:24<@Alberth>the default one :)
14:25<@Alberth>enhanced a bit with gfx+ :)
14:25<FLHerne>NuTracks
14:26<FLHerne>I might try Pikka's kind sometime though
14:26<andythenorth>hmm
14:26<andythenorth>how do I disable CHIPS if pikka tracks are not present?
14:27<@planetmaker>most people - if they use railtracks - seem to use NuTracks
14:27<@planetmaker>just an uneducated impression, though
14:27<FLHerne>Why would you want to do that?
14:28<andythenorth>because it CHIPS will be broken with other railsets
14:29<FLHerne>Is that a good idea? Breaking the significant majority of tracksets including the default seems a bit silly :-(
14:29<andythenorth>the platforms will be drawn over the tracks
14:29<andythenorth>I use pikka tracks
14:29<andythenorth>the only way CHIPS will work with them is to change CHIPS :P
14:29<FLHerne>Most people don't though...
14:30<FLHerne>Have it use different sprites if Pikka's set exists?
14:30<@planetmaker>:-)
14:31<@planetmaker>easy actually
14:31<andythenorth>the sprites are GRM-ed
14:31<andythenorth>but probably the action 1 might be skipped
14:31<FLHerne>So what's GRM-ing?
14:32<andythenorth>GRF Resource Management
14:32<andythenorth>I don't understand the purpose of it, but it's necessary for stations
14:33<andythenorth>some stations /s

14:38<@planetmaker>or something along those lines
14:39<andythenorth>anyway, CHIPS is now fixed for pikka tracks
14:40<andythenorth>and possibly broken for other sets
14:41<FLHerne>does that de-fix all other sets then?
14:41<FLHerne>aargh, ninja'd
14:41<andythenorth>broken for maglev in default
14:41<andythenorth>looks ok for monorail

14:57<andythenorth>I fixed FIRS :P

15:00<Rienzilla>hmm
15:00<Rienzilla>is there a way to improve graphics performance in openttd on macos?
15:00<Rienzilla>fully zoomed out the game is pretty much unplayable
15:00<andythenorth>yes
15:00<andythenorth>don't use OS X
15:01<andythenorth>turn off animation
15:01<Rienzilla>we thank you for your constructive comment :)
15:01<Rienzilla>lol
15:01<Rienzilla>ok
15:01<andythenorth>turn off full detail
15:01<andythenorth>buy a faster mac
15:01<V453000>the productions andy :)
15:01<Rienzilla>well it's not that slow andy
15:01<andythenorth>play a smaller map
15:01<Rienzilla>my much slower laptop on linux does not have any trouble at all
15:01<andythenorth>use fewer vehicles
15:01<andythenorth>use your linux box ;)
15:01<@planetmaker>enable the 8bpp mode explicity in your cfg file might help, too
15:02<andythenorth>I thought the OS X blitter was forced to 32bpp sometime ago? :O
15:02<@planetmaker>by default osx uses 32bpp (as opposed to all other OS)
15:02<@planetmaker>not forced, but defaulting to
15:02<andythenorth>I thought 8bpp was broken for OS X? Bad assumption?

15:05<@planetmaker>:-)

15:05<@planetmaker>wouldn't change many of the man pages then ;-)
15:06<@planetmaker>like ... "SED(1) BSD General Commands Manual SED(1) "
15:06<FLHerne>Might not have the hardware support? BSD license so Apple might not have donated drive code?
15:06<Rienzilla>andythenorth: it's a recent mac mini with an i5
15:07<FLHerne>s/drive/driver/
15:07<Rienzilla>and i think it's just the rendering that is slow; if I zoom in the game runs fine
15:07<andythenorth>I have i7 2.7Ghz, a 256x256 map with not many vehicles uses 30% on full zoom out
15:07<@planetmaker>FLHerne, macs are quite default hardware...
15:07<andythenorth>also they open source Darwin
15:07<@Alberth>Rienzilla: perhaps changing the sprite cache helps
15:08<Rienzilla>Alberth: what's that?
15:08<andythenorth>heh
15:08<@planetmaker>good point, Alberth !
15:08<andythenorth>FISH ships bounce when fully zoomed out
15:08<@planetmaker>I keep forgetting it...
15:08<@Alberth>it's a cache for sprites? :)
15:08<andythenorth>the bounding box must change size :P
15:09<FLHerne>planetmaker: Ah, they are now? I have many of the nubus variety :P
15:09<FLHerne>Which are about as non-standard as they get :-(
15:09<@planetmaker>They use intel CPUs and AMD / NVidea graphics card for years
15:10<@planetmaker>At least the last 5 or so
15:10<FLHerne>I know they're Intel now, but just assumed they kept the random quirks :P
15:11<@planetmaker>one of the biggest differences used to be the BIOS, which is some kind of uefi... but that's getting more common now, too
15:12<Rienzilla>looks like all rendering is done by the cpu :)
15:12<@planetmaker>kinda yes
15:12<NataS>we still don't have GPU support?
15:12<@Alberth>Rienzilla: http://www.tt-forums.net/viewforum.php?f=31 we had several 'it is slow' complaints on 1.2.0 the sprite cache settings sometimes helped and sometimes not
15:12<@Alberth>NataS: nope, not useful
15:13<NataS>it's usefull, would free up CPU power for pathfinding
15:13<NataS>which is more important
15:13<andythenorth>are modern GPUs really good at drawing sprites then?
15:14<andythenorth>NataS: your pathfinding is slow?
15:14<@planetmaker>they're good at putting textures on 3D models
15:14-!-KritiK [~Maxim@95-24-121-181.broadband.corbina.ru] has joined #openttd
15:15<NataS>not really, but not everyone has an i7
15:15<NataS>it seems it would help some older computers though.
15:15<andythenorth>they should just not use newgrfs
15:15<Rienzilla>lol at 1920x1080 it uses a complete core for just the welcome screen :D
15:15<NataS>and the really good pathfinding algor...
15:15<NataS>that's terrible
15:16<NataS>you are mean
15:16<andythenorth>why?
15:16<andythenorth>what's mean about helping them run their game faster?

15:16<NataS>it's not Crysis, it should be able to work efficiently on all computers.
15:17<NataS>and make the best use of available resources.
15:17<andythenorth>it does make the best use of available resources
15:17<andythenorth>it uses lots of CPU
15:17-!-Guest216 is now known as AD
15:18<NataS>yeah, but pathfinding is the most CPU consuming activity, so less intensive things ought to be shunted to the GPU
15:18<NataS>if you have a graphics card, you might as well use it for something
15:18<andythenorth>do you have new profiling charts?
15:18<NataS>no
15:18<@Alberth>NataS: then please provide a working demo
15:19<@planetmaker>whether PF is the most consuming task or not really depends on the map, vehicle count, newgrfs, etc
15:19<andythenorth>first I'd prove that the problem exists
15:19<andythenorth>recent profiling suggests that removing newgrf would provide the biggest efficiency gain for the savegames that were profiled
15:22<andythenorth>http://bugs.openttd.org/task/4934
15:24<Rienzilla>meh the difference is so huge :)
15:24<@planetmaker>did you increase sprite cache size?
15:24<FLHerne>Interesting - Presence/absence of newgrfs didn't have any obvious effect on my Powerbook
15:25<FLHerne>Perhaps it was too slow already so it didn't matter or something?
15:26<@planetmaker>you can check that by the cpu usage
15:26<FLHerne>100% permanently, no matter what :P
15:26<@planetmaker>then it's too slow obviously ;-)
15:26<@planetmaker>you probably would notice that it's more laggy with NewGRFs
15:27<FLHerne>I didn't...I did notice that adding ten or so vehicles had a noticeable slowdown, but not NewGRFs
15:29<@planetmaker>well... Highly depends, of course, which NewGRFs
15:29<@planetmaker>Adding vehicle NewGRFs or station NewGRFs w/o using them ingame has ofc. no effect
15:29<@planetmaker>adding an industry NewGRF like ECS (and FIRS, but a bit less so) has a measurable effect, esp. on larger maps
15:30<FLHerne>eGRVTS with 10 vehicles was no different to default with 10 vehicles.
15:30<FLHerne>FIRS crashed the game...
15:30<@planetmaker>egrvts is not a terribly complicated NewGRF
15:30<@planetmaker>FIRS crashed it?!
15:31<andythenorth>happens
15:31<FLHerne>Having an IRC client open at the same time crashed it, too :P
15:31<@planetmaker>err... :-P
15:31<andythenorth>you're using OS 9 :P

15:42<@planetmaker>any work done to that end, Eddi|zuHause - or only concept stage so far?
15:43<Eddi|zuHause> <Rienzilla> fully zoomed out the game is pretty much unplayable <-- i generall only zoom out while paused
15:45<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: no work yet, except a prospect of the combinatorial stuff
15:46<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: afair michi_cc tried to make some graphics, but got nowhere
15:47<Eddi|zuHause>maybe pixa could generate them
15:47-!-NataS is now known as Nat_AFK
15:47<@planetmaker>:-)
15:48<@planetmaker>Nat_AFK, you know that a name change to indicate AFK is absolutely not needed and only spams?
15:48<Eddi|zuHause>but i was currently working on having pixa generate CETS sprites (arbitrarily coloured boxes for now)
15:48<+michi_cc>planetmaker: Conceptually, it's quite easy, but drawing sprites that look good in practice is difficult stuff :p
15:48<@planetmaker>ah, I see. For the cargo, Eddi|zuHause ?
15:48<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: no, more for all the currently undrawn vehicles
15:49<@planetmaker>I see, michi_cc :-) So it "just" needs sprites for all possible combinations?
15:49<andythenorth>make pixa follow paths?
15:49<andythenorth>curves are just [some stuff I learnt in school about maths, but forgot]
15:49<andythenorth>polynomial equations could draw smiley faces iirc :P
15:49<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: i maybe need different pixa sequences for each sprite, instead of the whole spritegroup
15:50<andythenorth>maybe yes
15:50<+michi_cc>It needs sprites for the basic building blocks, the various combinations can then be superimposed.
15:50<andythenorth>pixa can load sprites
15:50<andythenorth>and combine them
15:50<andythenorth>I do cargos that way
15:50<Eddi|zuHause>yes, andythenorth, that is probably useful
15:51<Eddi|zuHause>but we need the basic parts first
15:51<andythenorth>got any example output yet?
15:51<andythenorth>I just picked BANDIT up co-incidentally
15:51<andythenorth>so my head is back in pixa-space
15:51<Eddi|zuHause>for each rail bit, the section from the middle to the edge of the tile
15:51<Eddi|zuHause>in three variants. straight, left turn, right turn
15:51<Pixa>Pixa-space is the best space :p
15:51<@planetmaker>michi_cc, so each tile's tracks would probably need to be composed of two sprites
15:51<Eddi|zuHause>yes
15:52<Eddi|zuHause>12 trackdir-bits, times 3 variants
15:52<Eddi|zuHause>probably 3 layers
15:52<Eddi|zuHause>track base, sleepers, rails
15:53<@planetmaker>well, yes, that, too
15:53<@planetmaker>But separating those three layers would actually make it even easier (and better looking)
15:53<Eddi|zuHause>yes
15:58<andythenorth>oh :|
15:58<andythenorth>when a vehicle is built, it's preferable that capacity matches buy menu reported capacity
15:59<andythenorth>?
15:59<andythenorth>[BANDIT fails at this]
15:59<@planetmaker>well. Other values would be at least unexpected
15:59<@planetmaker>But if the cargo... is lighter or more bulky and the purchase list reports for another cargo...
16:00<andythenorth>it's an issue due to refit subtypes
16:00<andythenorth>I report max capacity, but as-built capacity uses first refit subtype, which is....less
16:00<andythenorth>can probably fix that

16:43<+michi_cc>FLHerne: It might work if you use an 8bpp blitter, set "min_zoom" to 2 (more zoom in == more memory) and the sprite cache size to ~ 4.

18:00<Eddi|zuHause>concerning a 32bpp-free "light" version of ogfx+trains, wouldn't bananas prevent such a thing, because of same grf-id?
18:01<@planetmaker>Eddi|zuHause, no. It would be the same NewGRF, but without the 32bpp sprites. The md5sums would match by means of grfid- m
18:01<@planetmaker>*grfid -m
18:01<Eddi|zuHause>planetmaker: yes. but you cannot upload both to bananas
18:01<@planetmaker>That's true
18:01<Eddi|zuHause>which makes it useless
18:01<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: the goal is that bananas does the grfstrip itself
18:01<@planetmaker>The ultimate plan is that banans offers that stripping itself
18:01<frosch123>and users can choose what to download
18:02<frosch123>but so far ottd can likely not deal with multiple grfs with the same md5sum, but different colour depths and or zoom levels
18:03<Eddi|zuHause>it'll pick a pseudorandom one?
18:03<Eddi|zuHause>whichever it finds first

22:10<drac_boy>how're you wolfie?
22:11<Wolfie>I'm confused, thanks, blundering my way into coding.
22:11<drac_boy>heh ok :
22:11<drac_boy>:s *
22:15<Wolfie>Huh. Temptation to ping devs rising.
22:16<Wolfie>Is there really an issue with having multiple edit boxes? You can just store the current one's widget ID as an integer and modify the handlng code to write to the correct one.
22:17<Wolfie>Or is that not a clean enough way of doing things?
22:22<Wolfie>oh, I see, there's only one edit_str_buf ?
