04:25<andythenorth>new ships
04:26<andythenorth>do we actually explain that loading all grfs at once is Not A Good Idea
04:26<andythenorth>or do we just think it's bleeding obvious?
04:26<andythenorth>because it probably isn't obvious :P
04:32-!-valhallasw [] has joined #openttd
04:41<Flygon>GRFs are like components of a computer
04:41<Flygon>Using two seperate CPU's needs careful care
04:42<andythenorth>do players know that? :P
04:43<andythenorth>the weird thing is, it's not even easy to activate all
04:43<andythenorth>if you download everything from bananas (which we think players do)
04:43<andythenorth>then you have to double-click on every grf in newgrf settings window to add it
04:43<andythenorth>that's a lot of clicking :o
04:43<Flygon>You can only load 64 at once...
04:44<andythenorth>orly? :)
04:45*andythenorth didn't know that
04:45<andythenorth>I have about 9 in most games :P
04:57<Pikka>andythenorth: the kind of person it isn't obvious to is the kind of person who doesn't read instructions anyway
04:57<andythenorth>I wasn't thinking of instructions so much as nagging
04:58<andythenorth>or a button 'wtf grfs?'
04:58<andythenorth>for those who might actually care to learn something
04:58<andythenorth>when I first found grfs I stuck loads in :P
04:58<andythenorth>not so much vehicles, because it wasn't possible :P
04:58<andythenorth>but I tried PBI and Canset industries together
04:58<andythenorth>kind of worked :P

06:41<Eddi|zuHause>that's not a word :p
06:41<SpComb>Eddi|zuHause: unicode shenanigans?
06:41<SpComb>python on *nix has an annoying thing with `print` automagically encoding unicode to sys.stdout
06:42<SpComb>so your script printing non-ascii works fine when run with stdout to a terminal with a suitable locale, but as soon as you redirect stdout to a file, boom, UnicodeEncodeError
06:42<SpComb>but that would be the other way around
06:43<Eddi|zuHause>dunno, you'd assume that unicode would be irrelevant if you don't see the output anyway
06:44<SpComb>Eddi|zuHause: maybe pythonw explodes on anything accessing sys.stdout
06:45<Eddi|zuHause>that could be

09:26<Eddi|zuHause>you have as much snow as i do?
09:27<@Belugas>hello sir Eddi|zuHause :)
09:27<@Belugas>no, in fact, no...
09:27<@Belugas>it's cold a bit, but the snow has melted quite a lot
09:28<@Belugas>so when i came back from Cuba, it was ALMOST like spring

09:38<welshdragon>Would there be any objections to me creating a definitive List of Patches on TT-F and the Wiki? Could be useful if someone suggests a patch that has been done, but is 1000+ revisions out of date, or for wannabe patchers to make a better version. This also ties in with planetnmaker asking for patches to be submitted to FlySpray/
09:39<@Belugas>why are you asking, Eddi|zuHause? You have a lot of the freaking white stuff?
09:40<Eddi|zuHause>yeah, we've had yet another "totally sudden appearances of winter" this past week

10:10<Eddi|zuHause>i'm fairly convinced it's a grfcodec bug
10:12<Eddi|zuHause>because it works correctly if i use nmlc to create the grf
10:13<Eddi|zuHause>where does one report grfcodec bugs?
10:13<Eddi|zuHause>ah, found it :)

10:44<Eddi|zuHause>you shouldn't be too slow
10:44<liq3>well, I tried doing the math, and even the 144km/h steam train seems to have optimal distance around 600 for things like coal...

15:06<@Alberth>\o Wolf01
15:10<Wolf01>nice, my router firewall doesn't accept the port 6881, duplicate port it says..
15:10<@Alberth>lol, you have two ports 6881? :)
15:12<Wolf01>that's the unique port I can't set, both the ranges 1-6880 and 6882-65535 work
15:13<Wolf01>it 'might' be because of uPNP, but I have it disabled since... I purchased it
15:13-!-cyph3r [] has quit [Quit: Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.]
15:16<@Alberth>sounds like a non-standard setup that they forgot to implement properly :)
15:17<Wolf01>yeah, maybe they were trying to discourage the use of torrent

15:52<Wolf01>hello andy
15:54<Eddi|zuHause>Alberth: well, usually i do want to know when other people change something
15:54<@Alberth>hi andy
15:55<andythenorth>let's see what's in forums...
15:55<@Alberth>maybe you can disable sending emails for things you do yourself?
15:55<andythenorth>what are you getting emailed about?
15:56<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: every nml commit ever made
15:56<andythenorth>is that from redmine?
15:57<andythenorth>or is there some other commit bot?
15:57<Eddi|zuHause>Alberth: maybe it needs an exception for "old" commits?
15:57<Eddi|zuHause>Alberth: or maybe it should be per push, and not per commit?
15:57<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: is that something that can be achieved?
15:58<Eddi|zuHause>like, a summary if a push is very large?
15:58<andythenorth>email is a dead thing anyway :)
15:58<andythenorth>I set an autoresponder in December, and haven't been actively checking mail since
16:01-!-valhallasw [] has joined #openttd
16:02<Eddi|zuHause>i like emails. not many people email me, so i can use them for productive tasks :)
16:03<Eddi|zuHause>it's just this one thing where it got out of hand
16:04<andythenorth>so anyone using CHIPS with grain cargo?
16:08<@Alberth>I found a bug in loading with feeders before I got beyond livestock :p
16:10<@Alberth>Eddi|zuHause: yeah, but it seems RM has more bugs, like changing issues of a different project
16:11<Eddi|zuHause>Alberth: well, it's not technically a "bug", more like an "overzealous feature"
16:14<@Alberth>yeah, but I was pondering to make a nice commit message like "fixes #1 #2 #3\nfixes #4 #5 #6..." and so on :p
16:14<@Alberth>should be very good for all projects :p

16:33<andythenorth>Alberth: if you could close all my issues with your commits, that would be good, thanks ;)
16:34<andythenorth>this one for example, is boring :P
16:35<@Alberth>I fear I'd start with NML2 instead
16:36-!-ntoskrnl [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
16:36<@Alberth>except I do not know how NML1 works :p
16:37<andythenorth>magic of course :)
16:37<andythenorth>it's just a lot of python
16:37<andythenorth>how hard can it be? o_O
16:37<Eddi|zuHause>it's just a big yacc script :p
16:37<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: I haven't kept up with your partial compile effort, how is it going?
16:37<Eddi|zuHause>but it needs to be recoded in some better optimizable language
16:38<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: very hackish
16:38<andythenorth>hacks are ok, if they're known and obvious
16:38<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: very bad hacks
16:39<Eddi|zuHause>last i had to insert a big dummy switch at the beginning and end of the vehicle-specific code, to keep all strings and global callback ids
16:39<Eddi|zuHause>and there's some grfcodec bug that garbles most 32bpp sprites
16:42<Eddi|zuHause>in the end, the total compile time is much longer (because the "header" part must be processed every time), but i don't run in the excessive memory usage case anymore. and i can use -j6
16:46<Eddi|zuHause>but all in all, it's a nice case study on what may be necessary to build this into nml itself
16:46<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: I wondered how you'd cope with the generic code / switches etc
16:48<Eddi|zuHause>i should maybe write some test that checks whether the header part is really the same for all partial outputs

18:53<artisticMink>Heya, trains continously ram my road vehicles. Any way to avoid that except building bridges over every road?
18:54<Wolf01>PBS signalling, iirc they reserve the track and close the level crossing before the train arrives
18:54-!-oskari892 [] has joined #openttd
18:55<Eddi|zuHause>that only really helps for single track rails, and when the signals are some distance from the crossing

23:49<Dewin>I'm getting into ottd again and decide I wanted to play in trunk... but have a few patches I miss, and a few improvements I've thought about making. So I'm diving in source at the moment, and *think* I have a working cargodist + automatic timetable/separation build.
23:51<Dewin>I'm pondering the idea of some more advanced options for vehicle orders, namely the idea for a vehicle to force another vehicle to depart a station early under some circumstances. Then I saw the "REF_ORDER (all REFs are currently limited to 16 bits!!)" comment on the ORder struct -- since the struct is quite clearly more than 16 bits wide, I'm assuming that refers to the number of orders and not how much information they contain?
