00:49<Supercheese>Jeez, this .nml file is bloating, it's too bad the preprocessor hates me
00:49<Supercheese>I want to separate and #include, but that somehow screws up the .grf -_-
00:50<Supercheese>Think the preprocessor hates block comments or something

01:50<kamnet>Good morning. I'm setting up a CNet account to manage OpenTTD release information. They require that programs which can be installed on multiple OSes be listed separately. Would it be preferred to list each one as "OpenTTD x.x.x for <platform>", or just "OpenTTD x.x.x" ?
01:57-!-Celestar_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
01:59<@peter1138>the latter
02:00<@peter1138>not that i see the point
02:00<@peter1138>in fact i'd rather you didn't
02:00<kamnet>Didn't what?
02:00<@peter1138>it would suck if people search for openttd and came up with cnet
02:01<kamnet>They already can.

02:02<@peter1138>Price: Free
02:02<kamnet>If you search for "OpenTTD" on Google, there are several stores & distribution sites that already list the game
02:03<@peter1138>if you search for openttd on google, we're first. you can download directly from there
02:03<@peter1138>so why bother with cnet etc etc
02:04<@peter1138>cnet is that place that pops up when you're trying to find the real website
02:04<kamnet>Because those are large communities of users who may not know of the game.
02:05<@peter1138>people using cnet downloads are in a community?
02:05<kamnet>Of course they are.
02:05<Supercheese>Can't you set it up so that the page on cnet points to the OTTD webpage?
02:05<Supercheese>"Go to external site for download" etc
02:05<kamnet>It does, Supercheese.
02:06<kamnet>You can either pay CNet to host the file for you, or you can link to your own download location.
02:06<Supercheese>currently it downloads from cnet
02:07<kamnet>CNet acts as a middle man. The file can be downloaded from your server, they route it through the download manager on their site for tracking information and to scan your files for viruses and malware.
02:08<@peter1138>whatever it is, it's a crock of shit
02:08<@peter1138>just linking to the download without anything like, say, license information
02:10<kamnet>We can include that information.
02:11<Supercheese>Who's currently responsible for the OpenTTD cnet entries?
02:11-!-valhallasw [] has joined #openttd
02:11<kamnet>Good question, and I could not find an answer for that. I don't like that answer, because it puts the control of information outside of the hands of the developers.
02:13<kamnet>That's why I volunteered to take up this task of editing the information on these various sites. At the very least, the developers and members of the OpenTTD community know who *I* am, and have a way to contact somebody if information needs to be changed or updated.

03:37<@Celestar>blathijs: how ya been?
03:38<blathijs>Celestar: Busy :-)
03:38<blathijs>Actually did some OpenTTD coding again last week :-D
03:38<dihedral>good morning
03:38<blathijs>Trying to polish support for (ancient) 8bpp systems again :-)
03:40<blathijs>Got a bugreport from some SPARC system displaying wrong colors. In the end, I don't think I actually managed to reproduce the reported problem, but I was so deep into SDL/X11 palette stuff that I could just as well do something useful with that new knowledge ;-p

04:12-!-Rhamphoryncus_ [] has joined #openttd
04:16<@peter1138>yeah, 8bpp displays are kinda rare now
04:26<blathijs>peter1138: I actually had to switch back to using the vesa driver on my laptop for testing, the intel driver didn't work in 8bpp anymore (probably been years since someone actually tested that ;-p)
04:27-!-KouDy [~KouDy@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:29<@Celestar>who needs 3bpp
04:29<blathijs>Yeah, 8-color displays!
04:29<@Celestar>hm... no alpha channel in 32bpp?
04:30<@peter1138>back in my day we had 1, 2 and 4bpp
04:30<blathijs>Celestar: This Sparc Ultra1 here behind me needs 8bp :-)
04:30<@Celestar>does it still WORK?
04:30<blathijs>Celestar: I think 32bpp is really 24bpp plus alpha
04:30<@Celestar>normally it is
04:30<@Celestar>128bpp :P
04:30<@Celestar>with all channels as 32 bit floats
04:30<blathijs>Celestar: I had to replace the RTC chip, whose battery had depleted, but other than that it still works (slowly)
04:31<Flygon>Real men use sprites that use NTSC colourspace palette's
04:31<Flygon>Because that totally worked for the NES
04:31<Flygon>Who needs yellow? :B
04:31<@peter1138>PAL, dearest
04:31<@Celestar>NTSC has colors?
04:31<@peter1138>Never Twice the Same Colour
04:31<@Celestar>worst TV standard EVER.
04:32<blathijs>We should add a Hercules graphics driver in OpenTTD! :-)
04:32<@Celestar>well DVB-T sucks some donkey balls too
04:32<Flygon>The NES's that had RGB PPU's are the best :3
04:33<valhallasw>Celestar: also the first color standard, so it would have been pretty stupid if PAL and SECAM had sucked as much
04:33<valhallasw>(first of the three, at least)
04:33<@peter1138>DVB's overly compressed :(
04:34<Flygon>Over-the-air TV is a farce
04:34<@Celestar>it's not compressed. it's ... damaged beyond repair.
04:34<Flygon>Fiber Optic television plzkthx
04:34<@peter1138>analogue tv never looked as based
04:34<@peter1138>as bad
04:34<@Celestar>as DVB-T? no. -C and -S are pretty ok
04:34<Flygon>Good analogue TV can look better than DVB, I agree
04:34<@Celestar>-S2 rocks.
04:34<@peter1138>most people got good enough signals not to have bad noise
04:34<Flygon>Colourspace issues are always an issue, though
04:35<Flygon>Heck, I've had peeps think I'm on digital TV
04:35<Flygon>When my CRT's tuned to analogue
04:35<Flygon>Digital looks WORSE
04:35<Flygon>Due to the tuner processing the heck out of the video for 576i Composhit >_>
04:36<Flygon>I'd have used S-Video... but the tuner lacks it @_@
04:36<@peter1138>i just get snow when it's on analogue
04:36<Flygon>And I need to get my CRT modified for SCART/Component...
04:36<@peter1138>as there's no analogue tv transmission over here any more
04:36<Flygon>Australia has analogue still. USA doesn't
04:36<Flygon>It cuts off by 2013 ending
04:36<@Celestar>get a proper DVB-S2 and be happy :P
04:37<Flygon>I'm unhappy because it's Composite
04:37<Flygon>Not because of the signal
04:37<@peter1138>i refuse to pay for a satellite subscription
04:37<Flygon>Screw satellite
04:37<@Celestar>you don't have to pay :P
04:37<Flygon>Move to Australia around 2016
04:37<Flygon>Get Fiber Optic TV :D
04:38<@Celestar>screw TV really. Just use TCP/IP :P
04:38<Flygon>That's basically Fiber Optic TV :P
04:38<blathijs>Fiber Optic TV <-- Do they put a big beamer at one end of the fiber and you point the other end at your wall?
04:38<Flygon>blathijs: It's a pointlessly marketing style word for Cable TV
04:39<blathijs>Flygon: In the sense that they put up fiber up to the cable head end and then use regular coaxial cable with DVB-C for the last part?
04:39*Flygon shrug
04:39<Flygon>I don't know
04:40<blathijs>In .nl we actually have TV over fibre, where there's just some TCP/IP thing running over a fiber to the home connection
04:40<Flygon>I was lead to believe that ISP's here would bundle it with the NBN plans as an incentive over other ISP's
04:40<Flygon>And you use a tuner hooked up via ethernet or Wi-Fi to the router
04:41<Flygon>Since 20-40mbits via Wireless should be enough for a decent multimedia stream
04:41<blathijs>Flygon: Yeah, that's what they do here
04:41<Flygon>Go figure :)
04:42<Flygon>I can't wait til it comes out here
04:42<blathijs>Flygon: Though only on one of the big fibre networks, the other uses a DVB-C encoder in the router/modem so you can still connect your TV without a separate tuner
04:42<Flygon>All I can get currently is ADSL2+, or 100/2 Coax Cable with Cable TV
04:42<Flygon>The latter is outragiously expensive
04:43<Flygon>Ah, so it hooks up to the TV's antenna jack?
04:43<blathijs>Flygon: Yup
04:43<Flygon>That is a worthless load of crap to me :P
04:43<Flygon>My TV lacks a digital tuner, haha-
04:43<Flygon>I am a dimwit. I can use an external tuner.
04:44<blathijs>Flygon: It removes the need for a separate tuner if you have a digitial tuner in the TV, and it allows re-using existing coaxial cabling
04:44<Flygon>My grave will say "Died being shortsighted"
04:44<Flygon>Clearly not many Europeans still use CRT's
04:44<Flygon>Then again, not many Australians use CRT's...
04:45<@peter1138>can't get rid of my crt monitor
04:45<Flygon>Eh, it just seems like common sense to use an external tuner, that hooks up via ethernet or Wi-Fi
04:45<Flygon>peter1138, I should photograph my room
04:45<Flygon>It's the size of a small study, has 4 CRT's, and I gotta sleep in it :P
04:46<Flygon>An LG Studioworks 900B monitor, a Trinitron 200GS, Phillips 107S66, and some sort of 32in Trinitron TV
04:46<Flygon>The TV takes up at least 20% of my room from wall to wall
04:46<Flygon>Well, 10-15%, anyway
04:47<Pinkbeast>... get rid of one of them?
04:47<Flygon>Hell no
04:47<Flygon>They're all good
04:48<@peter1138>Flygon, are you a bit of a hoarder?
04:50<Flygon>Though, I've chucked out or given away things I know I will not have a use for
04:51<Flygon>eg. if I got a bigger CRT (and... a bigger bedroom >_>)
04:51<Flygon>I'd give away my 32in Trinitron to someone else that could use it
04:51<Flygon>I despise scrapping perfectly useful items
04:56<Pinkbeast>So do I, but the trouble is, there's an enormous influx of new monitors from people buying them. I'd give away my old 19" low-footprint tube, but who wants it?
04:57<Flygon>If you were Victorian
04:57<Flygon>I'd ask for us to meet and I'd inspect it
04:57<Flygon>I'd be interested in it
04:57<Flygon>19in high quality CRT monitors are reasonably useful/valuable
04:57<Pinkbeast>Victoria died in 1906 so I'd be getting on a bit if I was. # yes I know what you mean
04:57<Flygon>What specific model is it?
04:58<Pinkbeast>Dunno, not at home, but it's an iyama
04:58<Flygon>Never heard of it
04:58<Flygon>My friend is offline
04:58<Flygon>So, can't ask him about it
04:58<Flygon>Drat, you're Britis
04:58<@peter1138>were considered one of the best in the 90s
04:58<Flygon>If you were Canadian, I'd have tried to arrange something
04:58<Flygon>Ah, I see
04:58<Flygon>Either way, I can't buy it :(
04:59<Pinkbeast>I compromise by filling my own computers mostly with castoff bits.
04:59<Flygon>I just make stuff out of whatever
05:00<Flygon>So much so that I actually have a spare usable computer... except it's running on a K6-2
05:00<Pinkbeast>Spare? Ha. usagi I use every day, and she's a K6-3/450
05:00<Flygon>So I'll probably just turn it into a 9x based retro-game machine

08:01<@Celestar>you ill? :P
08:01<@Celestar>hm .. any gui frontend to openttd svn?
08:02<@peter1138>there's trac, on
08:02<+michi_cc>Web or local?

08:05<@Celestar>can you convert implicit orders into real ones?
08:05<+michi_cc>You can't, but it's definitely a valid feature request.
08:06<@Celestar>well maybe there is me entry point :P
08:07<@peter1138>i asked about that the other day too
08:07<@peter1138>shouldn't be too hard
08:08<@Celestar>don't think so

08:16<@peter1138>cos there's yacd too
08:16<@Celestar>I am not sure the old CBH works with the current map array in any way :P
08:17<@peter1138>don't think much has changed in that regard since then
08:17<@peter1138>but... it didn't work then either :p
08:17<@Celestar>no, not while reversing :(
08:17<@Celestar>lot of the other stuff worked somehow :p
08:18<@peter1138>from my old ancient original stuff
08:18<@Celestar>the list of feature requests is LONG.
08:18<@Celestar>friggen long

09:31<Stimrol>my font settings in the openttd.cfg are all empty
09:31<Eddi|zuHause>Stimrol: openttd only uses a system font as fallback if your language contains missing characters itself. things that happen ingame (like signs or chat) do not trigger that fallback
09:32<Eddi|zuHause>Stimrol: you can manually enter font names in the .cfg to use system fonts
09:32<Stimrol>is it thahoma witch is the recommended one?
09:32<Eddi|zuHause>there is no "recommended" one as whatever we could recommend, won't be there on some systems
09:33<Eddi|zuHause>tahoma bold possibly
09:33<Eddi|zuHause>small font sizes may be problematic
09:33-!-Pensacola [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
09:33<Stimrol>is it the mono_font setting or all of them I should change
09:34<Eddi|zuHause>normal font, if you worry about signs and chat
09:34<Eddi|zuHause>mono font is used for readme etc.
09:34<Eddi|zuHause>large font is for newspapers
09:34<Eddi|zuHause>small font is for tiny numbers or when you zoom out
09:35<Stimrol>normal is probably the medium font settings

10:46<Eddi|zuHause>anyone remembers that comment "doesn't work" which was commented by "WHAT doesn't work?" in the openttd code? :p
10:46<@Celestar>and why exactly do I have this in the code?
10:46<@peter1138>Eddi|zuHause, yes :-)
10:49<Eddi|zuHause>Celestar: reminds me of the times where you could print the beep character and the printer beeped :)

10:55<@Celestar>what could POSSIBLY throw an exception here?
10:55<Pinkbeast>integer overflow?
10:55<@Celestar>that doesn't throw ..
10:56<Pinkbeast>shows you how much C++ I know
10:56<@peter1138>it's probably java
10:57<@Celestar>this is java :/
10:57<Pinkbeast>Shows you how much Java I know!
10:57*dihedral knows java
10:57<@planetmaker>nice island. yes
10:57<@Celestar>anyway. going home :P
10:57<Rubidium>Celestar: maybe the auto type?
10:58<@Celestar>it's an int.
10:58<@Celestar>no Auto Type, no Integer. int.
10:58<Eddi|zuHause>there are even trains in java :p
10:59<@Celestar>well making openttd in java would require it to run on a 128GB of RAM for a normal sized map :P
10:59<@peter1138>remember when java had that horrible built-in ui?
10:59<Eddi|zuHause>Celestar: that's about the memory requirement to process CETS with nmlc :=
10:59<@Celestar>peter1138: it still has :P
11:00<@peter1138>is it still there? heh
11:00<@peter1138>mostly it's not used anymore, fortunately
11:00<@Celestar>the swing shit? yah.
11:00<blathijs>But the swing stuff was the new UI, right?
11:00*dihedral hums 'swing low'
11:00<@Celestar>it's as horrible
11:00<blathijs>Wasn't the old one "AWT" or something?
11:00<@peter1138>AWT old
11:00<Eddi|zuHause>i used swing in my PraxProg course :)
11:00<@peter1138>Swing implements native look & feel
11:01<@Celestar>with a lot of luck and hacking.
11:01<@Celestar>otoh. this shit here uses awt.
11:01<@peter1138>i just remember the awful 'metal' gui
11:02<Eddi|zuHause>i usually stay away from gui programming...
11:02<@peter1138>Celestar, and if minecraft was written in c++, it'd... actually run on a low end system
11:02<Eddi|zuHause>i did something with wxpython a while ago
11:02<@peter1138>infinite maps in ottd!

11:03<@peter1138>that's what perlin in
11:03<@peter1138>except not our implementation
11:03<Eddi|zuHause>(which is somewhat problematic if you have a "map overview" :p
11:04<@peter1138>cos we have a weird version
11:04<@peter1138>which is slightly faster
11:04<@peter1138>also problematic for multiplayer

11:06<Eddi|zuHause>we need toroidal and spheroidal worlds :)

13:36<@planetmaker>and yes, I found also a number which surely I did introduce ;-)
13:41<Eddi|zuHause>so, i suppose when i want a "2D-diff-viewer with permutation-support", i'd have to write one myself?
13:41<@planetmaker>err what?
13:42<V453000>sounds nicely wtf
13:42<Eddi|zuHause>like, i have this table, which is tab-separated, and i want the diff on a per-field basis, and if the line was moved from somewhere else, it shouldn't show as changed
13:42<@planetmaker>ah. I guess there the answer is 'yes'. Please provide me with your script / programme which solves that problem, though :-)

16:08<@DorpsGek>-Fix: Don't unpause the game when closing the highscore window if it was already paused before the highscore screen was shown.
16:14<drac_boy>I knwo this may be a bit of a silly question but is there any settings or so in particular on openttd to help with limited hardware resource? (other than not using super map sizes)
16:16<frosch123>spritecache size is far more important than map size
16:17<frosch123>reduce sprite_cache_size_px in openttd.cfg
16:17<frosch123>enforce 8bpp blitter by setting blitter = 8bpp-optimized
16:17<frosch123>disable extrazoom by setting the min zoom level in adv. settings
16:18-!-oskari89 [] has quit []
16:20<drac_boy>hm what should the cache be set to?
16:20<frosch123>the unit is megapixels
16:20<frosch123>so when using 8bpp it is megabytes
16:20<frosch123>when using 32bpp it is 4 megabytes
16:20<frosch123>ottd will become slower if you make it smaller
16:20<Zuu>Turn off "Full animation" in the settings menu from inside the game.
16:21<frosch123>you can regain speed by disabling the extrazoom
16:21<drac_boy>hmm frosch123 so maybe something like 10MB?
16:21<frosch123>which makes sprites use less memory
16:21<frosch123>drac_boy: the traditional setting before extra zoom was 4 :)
16:21<drac_boy>mm I think I've had that zoom thing just looks too silly seeing fat blocks of pixels :)
16:21<drac_boy>4....ok I'll check about that later, thanks
16:26<drac_boy>next month might finish swapping pieces around and that'll mean two less computers too. so just had to see if openttd would still be of useable nature or not. but I'll rather wait to actually see first ^_^
16:28<drac_boy>mm anyway frosch123 and zuu what are you two even doing? :P

21:25<Flygon>Only countries I've seen that people understand states exist are USA, Canada, and Australia
21:25<Flygon>Also China and Japan
21:25<Eddi|zuHause>at the beginning of the railway age, germany was a loose confederation of around 40 states
21:25<Flygon>...holy... well, there's an f word somewhere there
21:26<Flygon>I can't believe such a small area an function with so many states O_O
21:27<Flygon>Here, we have trouble comprehending states smaller than, say, Victoria (around the size of Poland)
21:27<Eddi|zuHause>then bismarck came along, drove austria out as the strongest competitor, and unified the rest of germany under a central government, but that didn't quite propagate to the railways, there were still 6 major state railway authorities and several smaller railways

21:29<drac_boy>or hilter's would-be "huge" gauge
21:29<Flygon>Nazi gauge is a terrible idea :p
21:29<Eddi|zuHause>Flygon: well, that is not strictly true either
21:29<Flygon>Brunel gauge? Sure. But 3 meters on just two rails?
21:29<drac_boy>or how about the endless 2ft industrial gauges too :)
21:30<Eddi|zuHause>yes, there is standard gauge, but then there was "badian broad gauge" and several narrow gauges
21:30<Flygon>Point is, to my understanding, for long haul purposes, Germany had a somewhat unified gauge
21:31<Flygon>I mean, for example, between Sydney and Melbourne, a 800km trip, you had to change trains half-way through because of a 1600mm vs 1435mm difference
21:31<Eddi|zuHause>yes, like all of europe except spain and russia
21:31<drac_boy>talgo trains had one thing right..they could continue nonstop (well technicially not full speed) through two different gauges
21:31<Flygon>Perhaps modern Europe is very good at hiding their history...
21:32<Flygon>drac_boy: Apperantly the Talgo solution is an advancement of a rejected guage solution developed in either NSW or Vic... good job, Federal Government, rejecting a perfectly good solution @_@
21:33<Eddi|zuHause>Flygon: btw, 40 states is not the tip of the iceberg, i think i read the number 200 once, until Napoleon cleaned out the mess :)
21:33<Flygon>Then again, Talgo may not have worked as well considering the fact that Diesel and Steam locomotives were the only things used
21:33<Flygon>Convertable passenger and freightcars would solve a lot of isuses, though
21:33<Flygon>200... that's barely a country >_>
21:34<Flygon>Then again, Australia used to be over 1000 seperate... uh... societies?
21:34<Flygon>Until the Europeans came and f*$#ed that up
21:34<Eddi|zuHause>well, germany didn't quite manage the conversion to a nation state at the end of medieval times, like france and england did
21:36<Eddi|zuHause>the idea of nationalism was actually seeded into germany by Napoleon, which became a) the root of his defeat, and b) the root of the almost total destruction of europe 100 years later
21:38<Flygon>Nepoleon destroyed Europe?
21:38<Flygon>Or, nearly did
21:40<Eddi|zuHause>basically... let's say he had a big influence in that ;)
21:40*Flygon nod
