04:17<andythenorth>how do dual-headed engines work, from a newgrf coding perspective?
04:17<andythenorth>what are they?
04:17<andythenorth>spec is not detailed on purpose or usage
04:19<V453000>they are quite wtf
04:19<V453000>you just code 1 head and apply 1 to dual headed, tada
04:19<andythenorth>and what happens?
04:19<andythenorth>one loco at each end?
04:19<V453000>the rear head is reversed automatically and always at end of train
04:19<andythenorth>I thought I'd have to do that myself with shitloads of livery override crap
04:19<andythenorth>trains are strange
04:19<V453000>nono dual head thing is for that :)
04:20<andythenorth>do I need to halve the power or anything?
04:20*andythenorth could just try it
04:20<V453000>btw I think for some reasons (remembers not atm without looking at code) livery override is like outdated or something
04:20<V453000>power is as set
04:20<andythenorth>ok ta
04:20<V453000>in total of both units
04:20-!-wakou2 [] has joined #openttd
04:20<andythenorth>thanks :)
04:20-!-montalvo [] has joined #openttd
04:20<V453000>ps, I do changing sprites by switches on spritesets through callback
04:21<V453000>e.g. default:: switch_rear_or_front ... switch basedon position_in_consist or position_in_consist_from_end
04:21<V453000>(or both) :>
04:22<V453000>if you search for "item_SLUG," in NUTS code, you should be able to find a dual headed engine with such sprite changing (plus sprite change when it is in the middle of a train - case when you use multiple engines) ... other than that dual headed should be quite straight forward :)

08:26<DanMacK>Hey all
08:27-!-Dark_light [] has joined #openttd
08:28<Dark_light>I just installed the game in debian wheezy and downloaded but I'm not sure where to unpack it, I've tried in my ~/.openttd directory but it's not detected and dpkg -L openttd doesn't show any data directory being installed by the package
08:30<V453000>expect rtfm
08:33<MNIM>Read The Forking Manual.
08:33<Dark_light>the manual says I quote:
08:33<Dark_light>" An OpenTTD folder in your user account's home directory: "
08:33<Dark_light>lists some
08:33<Dark_light> Linux: ~/.openttd
08:33<MNIM>But yeah, don't download it separately like that
08:33<__ln__>aww, RMS wouldn't like that
08:34<MNIM>just run openttd, click check online content and download it from there
08:38<Dark_light>that did it, thank you!
08:41-!-Zuu [~Zuu@] has joined #openttd
08:42<@planetmaker>Dark_light, if you installed openttd on wheezy, you can also use apt-get to install opengfx: openttd-opengfx
08:43<@planetmaker>then the game just works. And you can get all other stuff you might like (but not need) from the ingame content download
08:43<@planetmaker>Dark_light, doesn't the package openttd recommend at least the opengfx package?

09:41<@planetmaker>Zuu, I think all our builds do - except the OSX ones
09:42<@planetmaker>where the attempts to get bootstrap download working failed miserably
09:45<V453000>oftc is where :(

18:06<Zuu>It doesn't un-break the broken goals, only informing users of broken goal references :-)
18:07<Zuu>"Un-break broken goal references" could work :-)
18:08<Zuu>hmm, no - it still refers to fixing the goal references. :-s
18:08<Zuu>That is up to the GS author to fix. :-)

22:08<Djohaal>I mgiht have found a newGRF conflict
22:08<Djohaal>yup I have
22:42<Djohaal>depending on load order, the total towns replacement 3 can mess with ECS town buildings
22:42<Djohaal>no banks or car dealerships show up
22:43<Djohaal>to fix it, total towns has to reload after ECS house module it seems
23:05<Djohaal>is there any branch project to simplify the cargo reffitting procedure?
23:05<Supercheese>simplify how?
23:21-!-HerzogDeXtEr1 [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:29<Djohaal>take simutrans for instance. Freight has categories such as "peice goods", "bulk goods" "frozen goods" "Liquid goods" etc
23:29<Djohaal>and carriages can carry any goods of the same category without refitting
23:29<Djohaal>so you can haul paper on one way to a station and then bring back the goods on the same carraige
23:30<Djohaal>without having to refit
23:30<Djohaal>(sure being able to auto-refit on a station can do the same mechanic, but it misses the point of mixed cargo trains)
23:31<Djohaal>cargodist's potential at enhancing networking could be greatly improved if freight was handled that way. Many new approaches to hauling could stem from that
