06:15<NGC3982>Seriosly, i have this Aspire Revo HTPC
06:15<NGC3982>With a atom330 CPU.
06:16<NGC3982>The ION chip plays 1080p video like the machine was crafted at CERN
06:16<NGC3982>But using the web browser on Flash or HTML5 (Facebook or Youtube, basicly) turns it into a freeze-frame calculator
06:17<NGC3982>And i have no idea how to fix it. :(
06:17<Eddi|zuHause>disable flash, and javascript, and...
06:18<NGC3982>And then? It does not seem like i can force my browser to play videos and pictures with the graphics card.
06:19<Eddi|zuHause>that depends what program the html5 video is being piped into
06:20<NGC3982>I see.
06:20<NGC3982>Is that explicitly to HTML5?
06:29<peter1139>chrome will use the gpu i think
06:29<peter1139>if not then tough, get a proper pc
06:29<peter1139>or a proper player :D
06:31<NGC3982>Well, i already know it's slow, i'm just trying to find out if the computer is actually that bad, or just broken.
06:32<NGC3982>I could use the web faster with an old Pentium II, and that makes me feel the Atom330 should be able to, too.

06:42<Pinkbeast>When you were using that Pentium II, Web browsers weren't so bloated...
06:45-!-roadt [~roadt@] has joined #openttd
06:46<NGC3982>I tried Chromium, and that helped a fair bit.
06:48-!-Ristovski [~rafael@] has joined #openttd
06:49<Pinkbeast>On my old (2001 vintage) lappie I found Chrome was initially faster then choked horribly, but I think that's a memory footprint issue
07:06<@planetmaker>when there was the time of pentium II, there were no browser-based OS either ;-)

09:38<oskari89>Is plant fibers on FIRS same cargo id (FICR) as Fibre Crops?
09:43<Eddi|zuHause>although i have still no clue what fibre crops are
09:44<V453000>the same :D
09:57<@planetmaker>fibre crops are those which you make clothes or similar from. cotton. straw, hemp, ...
09:57<@planetmaker>i.e. those which you can use to obtain - surprise - fibres

14:01<oskari89>Train running sound plays together with idle sound, when train is waiting on block signal to clear
14:01<oskari89>But on PBS signal, idle sound only plays
14:01<oskari89>Is that bug on OTTD?
14:02<@Rubidium>no, it's realistic-ish
14:03<oskari89>Nope, that isn't :P
14:03<oskari89>Idle sound should play on both cases
14:03<oskari89>Running sound shouldn't play when waiting at block signal
14:03<@Rubidium>if there were a junction where everyone gets a green light and only one person may pass before it gets red again, would you keep reving your engine to get away as fast as possible, i.e. first?
14:04<oskari89>No, i won't :P
14:04<@Rubidium>you wouldn't need to do that when you know that once you get green, it won't turn red again until you passed
14:04<@Rubidium>ergo, the train running sound on block signals is "realistic"
14:04<oskari89>Or someone should make that a switch so one can choose :P
14:04<@Rubidium>and since you're waiting for a red light you're "idling" as well ;)
14:04-!-Alice3 [] has joined #openttd
14:05<oskari89>No that isn't

14:20<oskari89>Someone should do something at that
14:21<Eddi|zuHause>@seen someone
14:21<@DorpsGek>Eddi|zuHause: someone was last seen in #openttd 2 years, 27 weeks, 2 days, 0 hours, 40 minutes, and 38 seconds ago: <Someone> indeed
14:21<Eddi|zuHause>i guess he's gone for a while
14:21<oskari89>Anybody else is not seen at this channel? :P
14:21<Eddi|zuHause>@seen anybody_else
14:21<@DorpsGek>Eddi|zuHause: I have not seen anybody_else.
14:22<oskari89>Someone indeed has good sense of humour
14:23-!-LordAro [] has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
14:24<oskari89>That running sound thingy is rather irritating
14:24<oskari89>Especially when one has deadlock
14:25<oskari89>Running sound plays, one doesn't even hear that trains are stopped
14:25<oskari89>That is silly
14:33<Eddi|zuHause>well, the easiest thing is probably to mark train waiting at red block signal also as "waiting for path"
14:34<Eddi|zuHause>which has the side effect that the disadvantage of path signals that V453000 always complains about disappears :p
14:36<oskari89>Yes, that should be done

14:37<oskari89>PBS signals consume more resources if used on line as block signals
14:40<oskari89>If you have a lot of lines
14:51-!-pugi [] has joined #openttd
14:54<Eddi|zuHause>did you test that? or is that some unfounded assumption?
14:56<@Alberth>someone said it at the Internet ?
14:56<Kjetil>Then it must be true!

16:12<oskari89>Clone multiple vehicles/trains at a time could be useful feature
16:14-!-cyph3r [] has quit [Quit: Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.]
16:14<@Rubidium>and then clicking 20 times to get the right amount of vehicles in the ticker, and still waste one extra click... and more moving of the mouse
16:15<Eddi|zuHause>just use the clone button from the vehicle window, instead of the depot window
16:19<oskari89>Done that already
16:19<oskari89>If you have 100 vehicles to clone, that takes more clicks :P
16:19<@Alberth>you have too many trains
16:19<@Alberth>or too long tracks

16:47<NGC3982>My Youtube problems have been resolved.
16:47<__ln___>in an academic bibliography, in case of books published in the US, should the state be mentioned together with the city name?
16:48<NGC3982>Chromium was apparently the only browser that supported hardware acceleration with ny Nvidia ION card, on Flash or HTML5.
16:49<frosch123>if you using a recent flash plugin on linux firefox with nvidia drivers, you have to disable hardware acceleration of the flush plugin
16:50<frosch123>(if that was your problem)
16:50<frosch123>(that is, videos being kind of blue)
16:52<NGC3982>I see.
16:52<frosch123>__ln___: my math books only mention the city name of the printer
16:54<frosch123>no country or state
16:54-!-Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
16:54<frosch123>so, it's actually not a unique identifier at all :p
16:56<__ln___>besides, usually several cities are mentioned, and it's impossible to know (without an external source) what's the right one.
16:56<frosch123>well, it's only used to identify the printing company
16:57<frosch123>but today you visit the homepage of the author anyway instead
16:58<NGC3982>While im at it, i guess OpenTTD does not support running from a GPU, without black magic involed?
16:58<__ln___>it's bizarre that the city name is so important yet so hard to find out. fortunately library of congress has that info.
16:58<@Rubidium>a GPU is a worthless CPU
16:59<@Rubidium>likewise a CPU is a worthless GPU
17:00<NGC3982>Well, while you complete that haiku, i was thinking about if using the CPU+GPU would improve my gameplay.
17:00<NGC3982>Since the CPU alone is rather dull, in this machine.
17:00<Kjetil>CPUs are rather dull these days
17:00<@Rubidium>GPU does many floating point-ish things, or video decoding
17:00<@Rubidium>which is exactly what OpenTTD doesn't use
17:01<NGC3982>I see. It would not improve anything then, i guess.
17:01<NGC3982>Jesus, the Atom CPU's are worthless.
17:01<@Rubidium>now... for fun...
17:02<@Rubidium>if you have a decently old enough GPU, that might be able to do palette animation and if you use 8bpp full screen with full animation you can offload some stuff to the GPU
17:02<@Rubidium>besides that not much can be done
17:03<NGC3982>I see.
17:03<@Rubidium>I also can't remember any OpenGL blitters that were faster than just the blitters we have now
17:04<@Rubidium>furthermore the drawing isn't "simple" ray tracing like drawing because of some... uhm... visual hacks such as tunnels and bridges
17:05<@Rubidium>e.g. train is 8 pixels high, so is one heighlevel. This means that top of road/rail on a bridge is 8 pixels above the bottom of the train. Now in those 8 pixels, that contain 8 pixels of train you also need to draw the catenary and the bridge itself
17:06<frosch123>catenary is at height 10 :p
17:06<@Rubidium>so for proper ordering you need at least 3 extra pixels in height
17:07-!-zeknurn [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
17:07<@Rubidium>likewise for the tunnel entrance; that is below the top of the tile, especially in bktunnels, but still the 8 pixel train fits in a less than 8 pixel hole
17:08<@Rubidium>+ catenary
17:08-!-zeknurn [] has joined #openttd
17:08<@Alberth>just using a little magic like the buses of harry potter :p
17:08-!-Progman [] has joined #openttd
17:09<@Rubidium>but I reckon the raytracing and other real world looking rendering features of your GPU are not able to handle that
17:09<frosch123>yeah, why use space on the outside, if you need it on the inside :)
17:11<@Rubidium>but hey, this is one of the problems that can easily be solved in the same way as the multicore issue
17:11-!-chester_ [] has joined #openttd
17:12<@Rubidium>ditch the basic principles of OpenTTD/Transport Tycoon and rewrite the game and it's game play so you can do it right (tm)
17:13<@Rubidium>what's also annoying are these bio computers with two cores that need both cores mostly shut off for a while every day
17:13<@Rubidium>it'd be way more efficient if one could just shut off one of the two cores
17:13<@Rubidium>and continue with the other one
17:14<Eddi|zuHause>i believe some animals are doing that
17:14<Eddi|zuHause>like pelicans
17:14<Eddi|zuHause>which is why they stand on one leg
17:16<frosch123>i think that is a general bird thingie
