02:29<Elyon>gooooood morning
02:29<@planetmaker>moin :)
02:34<Elyon>do procedures count as the same action2 chain regarding registers? That is, can I set registers in the caller that work in the procedure, and vice versa?

02:44-!-Randominty [] has joined #openttd
02:50<Eddi|zuHause>yes, i think
02:51<Elyon>that would make sense. Thanks :) Will toy around some more
03:51-!-JdGordon| [] has joined #openttd
03:51<JdGordon|>can openttd be made to autmatically load a save game, take a screenshot and then quit?
03:52<V453000>script script
03:59<@planetmaker>not that easily, JdGordon|
03:59<@planetmaker>loading a specific savegame is no problem, you got command line options for that
03:59<@planetmaker>issuing the 'take screenshot' command in a scripted way is the more problematic one :)
04:00<JdGordon|>I'm open to a hacky code way :)
04:00-!-adf88 [] has quit [Quit: adf88]
04:02<@planetmaker>I've a hacky script which creates the titlegame competition screenshots for me. It can be modified to not use the titlegame but start playing mode
04:03-!-Devroush [] has joined #openttd
04:03<@planetmaker>but I don't have the up to date patch here or anywhere online but on my home pc only
04:04<@planetmaker>the ones online from two years ago don't apply anymore to trunk as the code basis changed
04:05<@planetmaker>that would work on OSX or linux (SDL) but not on windows
04:05<@planetmaker>and as said, outdated by two years. But could give you an idea.
04:06-!-ChickeNES [] has quit [Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…]
04:07<@planetmaker>(and an openttd compiled with that patch simply won't run longer than required for that screenshot. It will then just exit normally)
04:07-!-ChickeNES [] has joined #openttd
04:08<@planetmaker>which OS do you look for, JdGordon| ?
04:08<JdGordon|>I'm looking into using x11 keypresses from a script to do it :)
04:08<JdGordon|>having trouble getting the X11 window though
04:11<@planetmaker>my solution just loads the game and calls the screenshot function automatically after a few ticks and then exits
04:11<@planetmaker>probably easier, if it's just about getting screenshots from a few games
04:12-!-adf88 [] has joined #openttd
04:16<JdGordon|>probably :) not having to rebuild would be nice though
04:16<JdGordon|>where do screenshots normally get saved to?
04:16-!-Virtual [~Virtual@] has joined #openttd
04:19<JdGordon|>ctrl+g doesnt work?
04:20<JdGordon|>woo! this will actually work :)
04:20<JdGordon|>planetmaker: I might be able to make your life easier with this script :p

04:23<JdGordon|>$ xdotool windowactivate `xdotool search --class "openttd"` && xdotool key ctrl+s && sleep 10 && xdotool key ctrl+q && xdotool key Return
04:23-!-tycoondemon [] has quit []
04:24<JdGordon|>can the savegame/scrreenshot filename format be changed to something sortable instead of having readblae dates?
04:25<JdGordon|>i.e company-YYYYMMDD.*
04:26*JdGordon| found the setting :)
04:31<JdGordon|>oh bugger... I didnt realise it cylces the autosaves... I was hopinbg to screenshot 150+ game years of progress :(
04:32*JdGordon| *only* has 61 .sav's and unevenly spaced :(
04:45-!-ChickeNES [] has quit [Quit: My MacBook Pro has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…]
04:53<JdGordon|>is there anything obviously wrong with ? when I run it I get the --help output instead of openttd loading the save
04:55-!-tycoondemon [] has joined #openttd
05:20<@planetmaker>JdGordon|, I to believe that the backslashes are wrong
05:20<@planetmaker> works like a charm
05:21<JdGordon|>yeah, now i have a problem
05:21<JdGordon|>I cant open the giant pngs :)
05:23<@planetmaker>giant? you make giant screenshots of the maps?
05:23<JdGordon|>I wanted to make a timelapse of my current game
05:24<JdGordon|>i think i have to timelapse specific sections :/
05:24<@planetmaker>timelapse of giant screenshots might overload nearly every PC :)
05:24<Xaroth|Work>depends on the map tbh :p
05:24<Xaroth|Work>a 128x128 map isn't as bad as a 2048x2048 map :P
05:24<@planetmaker>but even with 256^2 that's big images
05:25<@planetmaker>@calc 256*64*32*8
05:25<@DorpsGek>planetmaker: 4194304
05:25<@planetmaker>@calc 256*64*32*8 / 1024/1024
05:25<@DorpsGek>planetmaker: 4
05:25<@planetmaker>Just 4 Megabytes each for 256^2. That might work meanwhile :)
05:28<@planetmaker>Factor of 64 :P
05:29<JdGordon|>can i set the screen resolution from the commandline?
05:29<@planetmaker>the window size
05:31<Xaroth|Work>256MiB per screenshot
05:31<Xaroth|Work>that's not too bad tbh
05:31<JdGordon|>time to giveup on this idea :/
05:38-!-Elukka [] has joined #openttd
05:39<JdGordon|>is there a way to jump to a specific coordinate from a hotkey or the console?
05:41-!-valhallasw [] has joined #openttd
05:46-!-retro|cz [] has joined #openttd
05:56<Eddi|zuHause><JdGordon|> i.e company-YYYYMMDD.* <-- there is a setting to use ISO dates in savegames
05:57<Eddi|zuHause>JdGordon|> ctrl+g doesnt work? <-- global screenshot pops up a confirmation dialogue
05:57<JdGordon|>thanks, got it all working
05:58<JdGordon|>fighting with the scrollto command now
05:58<Eddi|zuHause>also, you might get things to work with the "scripts/on_xxx.scr" files
05:58<Eddi|zuHause>or the admin port
06:35-!-Randominty [] has quit []
06:38-!-yorick [] has joined #openttd
06:54<JdGordon|> :)
06:55<LordAro>JdGordon|: does.. it have more than one frame? :3
06:55<LordAro>also, that, makes life much easier
06:55<JdGordon|>click download :p
06:56-!-Ristovski [~rafael@] has joined #openttd
06:57<LordAro>JdGordon|: :D
06:57<theholyduck>JdGordon|, i think you would be better off encoding to h264 and uploading the animation to a site like
06:57<theholyduck>especially on openttd content
06:57<theholyduck>it compressed ludicrously well with h264
06:58<JdGordon|>I'll try tomorow maybe
06:58<JdGordon|>pity I couldnt do this with the giant screenshot!
06:58<theholyduck>not to mention, it can even convert gifs to h264/vp8 for the same effect
07:00<JdGordon|>almost finished saving on gfycat
07:00<theholyduck> JdGordon|
07:00<theholyduck>i prefer mediacrush
07:02<theholyduck>mosly because it has a less obnoxious name, and is entirely open source
07:02<theholyduck>not to mention you can create your own h264 videos for streaming and upload directly, for higher quality without relying on gif conversions

07:46<Eddi|zuHause>also, you should make it not loop

12:11<slee>hello, can you not increase the loan? i set max_loan = 1000000(was originally 500000), but it didn't increase my loan in the game, is $1M the highest you can set?
12:12<V453000>might apply only to new game
12:12<V453000>not running one
12:12<slee>i've been using the cheat to give myself $20M to start(investors) then pay it back when i reach $20M, but i'd at least like to pay interest on it
12:13<V453000>this game isnt about money.
12:14<slee>well, i tried adv settings at main menu to set loan and in a new game, neither will allow over $1M...just curious if i was missing something to achieve this
12:20-!-Japa [~Japa@] has joined #openttd
12:20<@planetmaker>set a different currency ;)
12:23<slee>how will that increase max loan amount?
12:26<@planetmaker>it will appear higher :)
12:26<@planetmaker>as will all costs
12:27<@planetmaker>or lower. If you select GBP instead of USD
12:33-!-retro|cz [] has joined #openttd
12:53<V453000>well you could use some currency and basecosts with reduction of all costs
