01:24<argoneus>stronk mornink
01:24<argoneus>>school at 7:30
01:37<argoneus>I am wondering
01:37<argoneus>I want to make a script, that takes a giant screenshot once in a while and uploads it to my website
01:37<argoneus>I suppose I have to use a script with Expect or such?
01:37<argoneus>or is it possible somehow even normally
01:37<argoneus>like with a parameter or a rcon command
01:39<V453000>idk but how about launching the game as network, and your second client simply stays in one position and takes screenshot every $time
01:39<V453000>I think gettile moves your viewport
01:42<argoneus>doesn't network game start the GUI too?
01:42<V453000>well does but idk if you can make that automatic
01:45<argoneus>I'll just use my irc bot with the admin port
01:45<argoneus>and through that run screenshot
01:45<argoneus>I guess
01:47<argoneus>the question is
01:47<argoneus>if I can somehow get the openttd folder
01:47<argoneus>because on windows and linux they are different
01:47<argoneus>oh wait I can just specify that in config, right
01:47<argoneus>should be fine

03:37<argoneus>are there any commands to get current date / start date?
03:38<argoneus>because there don't seem to be any on the wiki
03:42-!-andythenorth [] has joined #openttd
03:45<Supercheese>setting game_creation.starting_year will print that
03:45<andythenorth>@seen pikka
03:45<@DorpsGek>andythenorth: pikka was last seen in #openttd 18 hours, 16 minutes, and 21 seconds ago: <Pikka> probably
03:45<Supercheese>"setting game_creation.starting_year"
03:45<argoneus>ah, I see
03:47<Supercheese>"getdate" for current date
03:47<andythenorth>my forum sig
03:47<andythenorth>does not have all sets
03:47<andythenorth>but then it would be big
03:47<Supercheese>I just hopped in a game, typed "list_cmds", found those :P
03:48<andythenorth>big sig is BAD FEATURE
03:48<andythenorth>maybe time for HEQS to die
03:48<Supercheese>Nuuuuu mah trams
03:48<Supercheese>HEQS trams are epic
03:52-!-Myhorta [] has joined #openttd
03:53<argoneus>Supercheese: someone should update the wiki :<
03:53<argoneus>the commands taht is
03:53<argoneus>(I do realize that someone could be me)
03:56<Supercheese>Yes, could use an update or two
03:57<Supercheese>it doesn't have "getdate" for one
03:57<@planetmaker>andythenorth, just use smaller font ;)
03:58-!-Celestar [] has joined #openttd
04:08<@peter1138>Someone™ should do it...
04:09<@planetmaker>@seen someone
04:09<@DorpsGek>planetmaker: someone was last seen in #openttd 3 years, 49 weeks, 2 days, 14 hours, 28 minutes, and 47 seconds ago: <Someone> indeed
04:09<@planetmaker>lazy person it seems
04:10<@peter1138>@seen somebody
04:10<@DorpsGek>peter1138: I have not seen somebody.
04:13<V453000>OR PICTURZ

04:25-!-Myhorta[1] [] has joined #openttd
04:25-!-Myhorta [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
04:30<andythenorth>mostly so steam trams don’t have wires
04:30<andythenorth>no gameplay reason
04:31<andythenorth>can’t we just forget roadtypes, and set a tile-has-power bit instead?
04:31<andythenorth>then we can have steam / diesel trams with no wires
04:31<andythenorth>and we can have electric trucks and crap
04:36-!-andythenorth [] has quit [Quit: andythenorth]
04:42<argoneus>we could also have railroad-has-power
04:42<argoneus>and then you need to haul coal to power stations with cars, and wire electricity to your railroads
04:42<argoneus>else you can't use electrified railroads
04:42<argoneus>we could have 'electricity hopper'
04:43<argoneus>which carries 500 watt-tons
04:45<V453000>just have batteries :)
04:51<@Rubidium>argoneus: doesn't help screenshot show which options there are? For example 'screenshot giant <filename>'
04:57<argoneus>Rubidium: it said no video driver available
04:57<argoneus>I think the server needs to be able to run the actual game to take a screenshot?
04:58-!-Myhorta[1] [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
04:58<Xaroth|Work>dedicated server can't produce screenshots
04:58<Xaroth|Work>unless you run it with a video driver
04:59<argoneus>aw, there goes my idea of having automatic screenshots of current progress
05:03<@planetmaker>maybe I should un-earth my keep-blitter-for-dedicated-server-patch :P

05:13-!-sla_ro|master [slamaster@] has joined #openttd
05:15<Xaroth|Work>argoneus: a 'trick' to be able to make screenshots with the dedicated server
05:16-!-KouDy [~koudy@] has joined #openttd
05:16-!-Celestar [] has left #openttd []
05:16<argoneus>how does that work?
05:20<@planetmaker>the cheap way is to remove some #ifdef
05:22<argoneus>but without a video driver and starting the game
05:22<argoneus>you cannot draw pictures
05:23<argoneus>I mean, you probably can in theory
05:23<argoneus>but is that how ottd works?
05:25<@peter1138>well it used to be possible but then someone™ removed it, because in general servers rendering is not wanted
05:25-!-KouDy [~koudy@] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
05:25<@peter1138>the change to reenable it is probably quite simple. if you know the code.
05:25<@peter1138>which planetmaker clearly does :)
05:28-!-DabuYu [DabuYu@] has joined #openttd
05:33-!-andythenorth [~Andy@] has joined #openttd
05:35<argoneus>how does the giant screenshot work anyway?
05:35<argoneus>does it just take the map array and render tile by tile into a picture?
05:35<argoneus>or is it something different
05:35-!-andythenorth [~Andy@] has left #openttd []
05:35<Xaroth|Work>close enough
05:37<@peter1138>something like that
05:39<argoneus>so it's just some sdl routine to render the tiles and save it into an image?
05:39<argoneus>e.g. it doesn't necessarily need a GPU or the game running?
05:39-!-zeknurn [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
05:40-!-zeknurn [] has joined #openttd
05:47<argoneus>how do you guys log the server and have access to console at the same time?
05:55-!-Tykling-9167 [] has joined #openttd
05:57<Tykling-9167>I am on a windows laptop without a mouse and I've tried configuring "function of scrollwheel" to "scroll map" but I am still unable to scroll the map
05:58<Tykling-9167>if it is set to "zoom map" it zooms in and out alright, isn't it weird that it won't scroll the map then ?
05:59<@peter1138>nothing to do with SDL
06:00<Tykling-9167>was that for me ?
06:00<Tykling-9167>:) ok thanks
06:01<Tykling-9167>hm looks like I can scroll using the "pan at window edge" function
06:02-!-KouDy [~koudy@] has joined #openttd
06:05-!-wousser [~textual@] has joined #openttd
06:06<wousser>Hi, congrats on the 1.4.3 release. I'm looking for the roadmap for future versions. Seems the one on the wiki is not accurate.
06:09<LordAro>it's nonexistent :p
06:09<wousser>It was with the 0.7 releases ;)
06:10<wousser>So where are the bugs, new features, enhancements now taken from? The bugtracker?
06:11<wousser>However, none of the issues are tagged to releases
06:14<@planetmaker>argoneus, some months (or years) ago was sufficient
06:15<@peter1138>and if it's not a dedicated server build...
06:15<@planetmaker>wousser, there is no road map. Fixing bugs is surely a priority. Features and other changes happen as they do
06:15<@peter1138>just specifying a resolution and a blitter might let you do it
06:16<@planetmaker>I think that's how it worked, peter1138. The cfg had a blitter and a resolution. And then the screenshot command would write images using those two
06:17<@planetmaker>it's a bit ago when coop used that patch on servers
06:17<@peter1138>yeah, well the someone™ who disabled it by default was... er... well...
06:18<@planetmaker>it's disabled for long. Dunno when or why actually. I recon it could be changed to be allowed by a separate compiler flag
06:18<@planetmaker>like KEEP_BLITTER or whatever
06:18<@peter1138>just compile a non-dedicated build and it'll be fine
06:18<@peter1138>it's only a couple of extra libs ;p
06:19<@peter1138>who even compiles dedicated builds?
06:19<@peter1138>our premade binaries are always full, aren't they?
06:19<@planetmaker>yes, they are. coop and reddit compile, for what I know. I don't know any other servers
06:20<@peter1138>i used to but i'm lazy now
06:20<@peter1138>only compile for trunk heh
06:20<@planetmaker>the need for the full xlibs is big. Just enabling blitter keeps deps low
06:20<@planetmaker>yeah... so do I. Server updates are easy... just call !update on irc for me :)
06:21<@peter1138>ah of course
06:21<@peter1138>i have mono on my server, so that lot is already there :S
06:21<@planetmaker>admin port client for the win :)
06:21<@peter1138>forgot about that
06:21<@peter1138>so when do we start making dedicated server builds? :p
06:22<@planetmaker>ask TrueBrain. We got not the server to do since June :P
06:22<@planetmaker>yay for unwarranted highlight also :P
06:22<@peter1138>not the server?
06:23<@planetmaker>our server where the CF runs on. It's got more ram, more cpu than before. So CF should easily handle that
06:23<@planetmaker>would still probably not be worth it. Dunno
06:25<@peter1138>not the server means you don't have it... but... ok
06:25<@peter1138>is it still ovh?
06:26<@peter1138>i have a 16GB 3GHz quad core with ovh, heh
06:26<@planetmaker>yeah. So does OpenTTD :P
06:26<@peter1138>no raid though
06:26<@peter1138>so only a single 2TB disk
06:26<@peter1138>== backups are vital :p
06:27<@peter1138>i mean, they are anyway, but still
06:28<@planetmaker>2*2TB raid1 for OpenTTD
06:29<@planetmaker>hm, though I think we have 32GB ram... I forgot :P
06:29<@peter1138>it's the best box i have access to :(
06:29<@planetmaker> <-- bit modified system from that
06:29<@planetmaker>no ssd as they were too small for our banannananananas stuff
06:29<@peter1138>mine is a kimsufi one
06:30<@peter1138>they're a bit cheaper
06:30<@peter1138>also only 100mbit, not 1gbit
06:30<@peter1138>i looked at soyoustart until i realised the price quote was for a *half* month... o_O
06:31<@planetmaker>yeah, they must have changed that. I find that... mis-leading trickery
06:31<@peter1138>it was to do with a half price offer, but it was for 2 weeks only
06:31<@planetmaker>soyoustart is ovh, btw
06:31<@peter1138>so the only price shown was the 2 week price
06:31<@peter1138>yes i know
06:32<@peter1138>as is kimsufi

06:32-!-DabuYu [DabuYu@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:33<@peter1138>i wouldn't do serious hosting on it, but it's good enough for game servers and the like
06:34<@peter1138>now i just need to get the other people involved to cough up their part of the cost, hah
06:38<@DorpsGek>planetmaker: OpenTTD uses TCP and UDP port 3979 for server <-> client communication, UDP port 3978 for masterserver (advertise) communication (outbound), and TCP port 3978 for content service, a.k.a. BaNaNaS (outbound)
06:41-!-DabuYu [DabuYu@] has joined #openttd
06:44<argoneus>oh so just remove the guards
06:44<argoneus>I'll try it thanks planetmaker
06:50<@planetmaker>argoneus, it won't help you, unless you compile all clients from the same modified source, though
06:52<argoneus>planetmaker: wait
06:52<argoneus>the clients need the exact same source?
06:53<argoneus>I thought it was enough if they both reported the same version
06:53<argoneus>and checksu--- oh
06:56-!-Pensacola [] has joined #openttd
06:56<efess>no they don't need the exact same source, you can compile client side changes and not change the version just fine
06:58-!-luaduck_zzz is now known as luaduck
07:00<@planetmaker>and be happy about all your desyncs and stuff. And wasting our time with pointless bug reports when things go wrong with openttd which claims to be what it isn't :(
07:00<@planetmaker>please do not ever recommend that
07:01<efess>I don't recommend it, I'm just saying you can
07:01<@planetmaker>if you modify the source, be so honest to actually state that you modified it
07:01<efess>and we don't do that
07:01<@planetmaker>I know
07:01<@planetmaker>and I'm quite happy about that
07:06<efess>is there any console command that can tell you what gamescript is loaded?
07:07-!-Kurimus [] has quit []
07:07<@planetmaker>try gamelog
07:10<efess>Just shows grf and savegame data, good to know about that though
07:13<@planetmaker>efess, it *should* show GS data, too... hm... maybe it doesn't, then it's a valid feature request
07:17-!-Kurimus [] has joined #openttd
07:23<Eddi|zuHause>> env x='() { :;}; echo vulnerable' bash -c "echo test"
07:23<Eddi|zuHause>bash: Warnung: x: ignoring function definition attempt
07:23<Eddi|zuHause>bash: Fehler beim Importieren der Funktionsdefinition für `x'.
07:24<LordAro>grats :)
07:25<@planetmaker>efess, please feel invited to remedy the situation and submit a patch :)
07:25<@planetmaker>maybe also as extra command
07:26<efess>I can look into it
07:27<@planetmaker>maybe two or three new commands:
07:27<@planetmaker>listactivenewgrf, listactiveai, listactivegame
07:28<@planetmaker>in similarity to listai, listgame. There's no listnewgrf yet, though
07:28<efess>we had an issue with CB, came down to the wrong cb script in the content_download folder
07:29<efess>it would also be useful for stats/gamestatus
07:30<@planetmaker>listing the active game script in gamelog would also be useful, yes. It's part of crashlog already
07:30<@planetmaker>but it might make sense to indicate in gamelog when / if the active GS changes or on reload is not found
07:30<@planetmaker>and which is used on start, similar to listed NewGRFs
07:31<@planetmaker>maybe you can formulate an idea on what would be nice and first have that up for discussion. There surely are some more people who might have valuable input
07:32<@planetmaker>but having some working solution first often is a good idea, too :P

11:18<Jiinxs>Is it possible to change the default folder the game goes to for saving/loading games?
11:22<Eddi|zuHause>move everything, especially the openttd.cfg to a different directory, and use that as "working directory" when starting openttd

11:52-!-Jiinxs [] has quit []
11:55<@Alberth>how much of such a large map do you actually use? Maps of that size that I have looked at are often just mainly empty
11:55<@peter1138>sparse towns :D
11:59<Eddi|zuHause>the most i got was 50% of a 1024x2048 map
12:03<@Alberth>I recently started building while paused, it makes a large difference in your speed of growth
12:03<@peter1138>but okay, time does fly
12:03<@Alberth>although in the early years you lack money to do large extensions
12:04<@Alberth>the downside is that you see less trains moving around

12:20<@peter1138>can we put void tiles in the middle of the map?
12:21<argoneus>V453000: is there a particular reason for superstrong trains?
12:21<argoneus>my MEDIUM trains seem to be good enough for oil, even uphill
12:22<frosch123>peter1138: most likely you can, they will be unbridgeable and untunnelable
12:22<@peter1138>why does there need to be a reason?
12:22<argoneus>because I assume they were made with something in mind?
12:22<@peter1138>needing a reason leads to the peril of andythenorth
12:22<frosch123>argoneus: how long do they need to accelerator from 0 to max speed on a slope?
12:23<argoneus>why would they accelerate on a slope
12:23<frosch123>yuo can easily adjust the "good enough" to "not good enough" :p
12:23<frosch123>stopping at a signal?
12:23<argoneus>I try not to put signals before slopes
12:23<Sylf>super strong classes can take super short corners without slowing down
12:25-!-FLHerne [] has joined #openttd
12:25<argoneus>so if my trains go mostly on long plains
12:25<argoneus>then it makes sense medium is enough?
12:25<Sylf>NUTS isn't built for flat maps
12:25<Sylf>but for that, fast class is good enough
12:25<argoneus>the map isn't flat
12:26<argoneus>I made it flat :D
12:26<Sylf>that's even worse >_<
12:26<Eddi|zuHause><peter1138> needing a reason leads to the peril of andythenorth <-- but the whole point of NUTS was all gameplay and no "realism"?
12:26<argoneus>I just can't really calculate in my head
12:26<argoneus>how much horsepower/tractive effort I need for my cargo
12:26<Pinkbeast>signals before slopes really caught me out in UKRS2 where the Crampton has essentially no tractive effort
12:27<Sylf>We don't really think about just enough
12:27<Sylf>for that, most NUTS engines are overpowered
12:27<Pinkbeast>argoneus: I generally start with the locomotive and fiddle the train length post-facto
12:28<Sylf>especially the later generation ones
12:28<@peter1138>hmm, status bar is a bit wierd with giant fonts
12:28<@peter1138>could do with stretch
12:29<Sylf>compare any NUTS engines with any engines from other sets from similar years - all NUTS engines have huge TE
12:29<@Alberth>(18:20:24) peter1138: can we put void tiles in the middle of the map? <-- didn't y3xo did that one time?
12:29<@Alberth>with his head to head version
12:31<frosch123>peter1138: make it span the whole width, and make tickers scroll vertically
12:36<@Rubidium>make its width proportional to the font size?
12:37<Eddi|zuHause>would that not be helpful for almost all windows?

12:38<Eddi|zuHause>frosch123: isn't the essential definition of a ticker that it spits out letter by letter?
12:39<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: but they already scale mostly by font size in some manner. The status bar center section just gets smaller and smaller
12:40<@peter1138>yeah, most windows scale
12:40<@peter1138>just, only to text
12:47-!-DabuYu [DabuYu@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:51<frosch123>if we make the ticker scroll vertically, we could also allow resizing it vertically, so the last n messages are visible
12:51<frosch123>which would maybe make it even useful
12:52<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: your ticker focuses on realism :p i prefer gameplay
12:53<Eddi|zuHause>i'd start by making the ticker not block real news, and clicking on the ticker pop up the news history instead of the last message
12:54<@peter1138>go on then
12:54<@peter1138>i'm not making functional changes
12:54<@peter1138>just merely fixing up things to scale
12:54-!-DabuYu [DabuYu@] has joined #openttd
12:54<@Alberth>I don't think that helps enough, you want some sort of higher level summary instead
12:55<@Alberth>if "real news" gets delayed, the ticker news is old too, probably
12:56<@Alberth>which would suggest "too much" news
12:58<@Alberth>which is of course to be expected if you make the world larger by a factor 16 or more
13:02<argoneus>are there any disadvantages to RoRo?
13:03<Sylf>takes more space
13:03<Sylf>it can take more space*
13:03<argoneus>so if space is not an issue, I am good?
13:03<Eddi|zuHause>Alberth: yes. but what makes the ticker worse than "real news" is that you can't speed it up with space bar.
13:04<Sylf>and it can give a false impression that roro is the answer to all congestions

13:04<@Alberth>but people like simple answers to problems :p
13:05<Sylf>yes, the absolute yes/no answers with no pain
13:05*Sylf starts handing out pain pills
13:05<Eddi|zuHause>those people have point-to-point lines without signals
13:05<argoneus>Sylf: well, I usually go for terminus stations with multiple separated entrances and exits
13:05<argoneus>but RoRo seems nice too
13:06<@Alberth>roro is a bit boring to build :)
13:07<argoneus>it is?
13:08<@Alberth>no traffic that encounters each other
13:08*argoneus shrugs
13:09<@Alberth>but just build what you like :)
13:10<Pinkbeast>Where something like a pax line runs both ways, a ro-ro with shared platforms in the middle is a bit more interesting.
13:13<LordAro> <-- some database shenanigans? the "corrupted" libraries are pretty important for AI, so probably should be looked into..

13:24<@Rubidium>LordAro: there are a lot of duplicate file names, I attempted to remove some duplicates (changing names). Seems it didn't work as expected
13:25<argoneus>I just tried experimenting with a station design
13:25<argoneus>would you mind giving me your opinion on this?
13:25-!-Speedy [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
13:26-!-DabuYu [DabuYu@] has joined #openttd
13:26<argoneus>though I should probably drop the block signals on the outgoing path
13:27<argoneus>or at least drop that one path signal there
13:28<Pinkbeast>It's not totally clear to me how trains get out of some of the platforms, or into others
13:29<frosch123>argoneus: do you want trains from the very left platform to exit via the line on the very right?
13:29<Pinkbeast>... oh, wait, by dragging lengthways across the front of the station? Bleh.
13:29<argoneus>I should've probably alternated the exits
13:29<frosch123>and blocking all platforms by doing that?
13:29<argoneus>would alternating exits help?
13:30<frosch123>for a start, remove some tracks :)
13:30<frosch123>give the trains less options
13:30<argoneus>I'm completely new to 2 line tracks
13:30<argoneus>with one line it's easier
13:30<frosch123>don't allow them to cross the junction in a way that blocks all lines
13:31<Pinkbeast>Also both incoming/exit lines don't have to serve all platforms
13:31<LordAro>Rubidium: woops :p
13:31-!-Pikka [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
13:35<Pinkbeast>I might - numbering the platforms 1-8 - line the incoming lines up with platforms 1 and 8, but able to access any platform (but they'll prefer to go to their own edges); align the outgoing lines with 0 and 9, so to speak, with 1-4 feeding into 0 and 5-8 feeding into 9; then use tunnels or bridges to join up the outgoing lines later.
13:36<argoneus>how about this?
13:37<Pinkbeast>That's more plausible. I dislike trains turning more than 45 degrees overall at station entrances; I'd build slightly bigger knitting to accomodate that.
13:38<Pinkbeast>Also the signals on the exits seem to reflect different maximum train lengths
13:38<argoneus>they are just at the junctions
13:39<Pinkbeast>But if they can be pushed back towards the station a bit without allowing a train to foul the exit pointwork, so much the better...
13:40<Pinkbeast>For example, - a train never turns more than 45 degrees from the station/track axis

13:46<argoneus>I came up with this Pinkbeast
13:47<argoneus>is this what you meant
13:48<Eddi|zuHause>seems decent, except i would scratch the first X at the entrance and the last X at the exit
13:48<argoneus>really? why?
13:49<argoneus>I need to re-balance the lines somehow, no?
13:49<Eddi|zuHause>that is a neat idea, but crossovers at a main line never work out
13:49<Pinkbeast>Eddi|zuHause: That's an ollld screenshot
13:49<argoneus>where do I re-balance them, then?
13:49<Eddi|zuHause>you don't
13:50<Pinkbeast>argoneus: Well, I find that more aesthetically satisfying, anyway.
13:50<Eddi|zuHause>just put exactly the same number of trains on either network
13:50<Pinkbeast>If you were going to, I'd let trains from platforms 4 and 5 choose which exit line to use.
13:51<argoneus>that's a good idea
13:52<Eddi|zuHause>also, the signal gap on the exit seems too large (between the first signal and the second signal)
13:53<Eddi|zuHause>in general, the signal gap should be smaller in areas where trains accelerate
13:54<argoneus> ?
13:54<Eddi|zuHause>yes, pretty much
13:54<Eddi|zuHause>now let the trains roam!
13:54<@Rubidium>LordAro: I think it should be solved now
13:55<argoneus>now to make the other station
13:55<Pinkbeast>Well, I'd still lose the "skate right across the entrance" line at a right angle to the axis.
13:55<Pinkbeast>... oh, which has come back.
13:55<argoneus>it's so they can choose a line from the other end
13:55<argoneus>but they won't prioritize that, no?
13:55<argoneus>only as last resort
13:55<Eddi|zuHause>they should NEVER go to the other end
13:55<Eddi|zuHause>that will ALWAYS cause more harm than good
13:56<argoneus>I'll just lose the perpendicular
13:56<argoneus>and then it should be ok?
13:56<Pinkbeast>Quite. Letting 4 and 5 swap over provides a bit of rebalancing, but letting 1 steam across to 8 is bleh.
13:56<argoneus>that could block traffic for a long while
13:57<Pinkbeast>It depends a bit on train length, speed, and power/TE. A 9F can get a lot of coal moving, but it's not exactly a quick process. (And if trains are arriving full, or leaving)
13:58<Pinkbeast>Particularly when flattening out land, I'll flatten up for a loading station, so empties go uphill into it, but full trains run downhill when accelerating.
13:59<Pinkbeast>And even for a pax station there's something to be said for that. (The technique is used for-real on the Tube)

16:55<smith1232>hi, all. i am trying to setup a dedicated server behind a router. for some reason, nmap says tcp 3979 is open (service smwan), but udp 3979 is open|filtered (service unknown). does anyone have a clue as to what might be the case here?
16:56<@DorpsGek>planetmaker: OpenTTD uses TCP and UDP port 3979 for server <-> client communication, UDP port 3978 for masterserver (advertise) communication (outbound), and TCP port 3978 for content service, a.k.a. BaNaNaS (outbound)
16:57<smith1232>yeah, i have all of those open in my port forwarding router settings.
16:57<smith1232>but something is obviously incorrect, have no idea what.
16:58<smith1232>granted, my router is a piece of junk.
16:58<@Rubidium>doesn't filtered imply that it's firewalled?
16:58<smith1232>open|filtered means nmap doesnt know.
16:58<smith1232>but yes, filtered would be firewalled.
16:58<smith1232>and it is not.
16:58<@Rubidium>also, many routers' forwarding only works from outside to the inside, not from inside to inside
16:58<@Rubidium>or at least the cheap broadband ones ISPs give
16:58<smith1232>let me try to explain: iptables is letting everything through, the firewall on the router is off.
16:59<smith1232>of course, i am trying to access the game "from the outside"
16:59<smith1232>not really, but i am using the outside ip of the router
16:59<smith1232>which should mean that the packets go out and back, right?
16:59<@Rubidium>yeah, so if you're on the "inside"... then it's likely not going to work
17:00<smith1232>could someone help me test then?
17:00<@Rubidium>is it advertising?
17:00<smith1232>i would give you the ip

17:08<smith1232>maybe i should just install the ubuntu thing now
17:08<smith1232>i am running ubuntu server on there
17:08<@Rubidium>still... ~/.openttd/openttd.cfg
17:09<smith1232>i do have that. but i think that's only because i have the old version installed
17:09<smith1232>i did that to get all the dependencies
17:09<smith1232>without having to worry
17:09-!-tritoch [] has joined #openttd
17:09<smith1232>still, i suppose the new version that is only unpacked reads that anyway.
17:09<smith1232>do you think its a problem that the .cfg is from an older version?
17:09<@Rubidium>smith1232: what does the readme say about it?
17:10<smith1232>i think 1.3.smth?

17:11<smith1232>thanks for your help Rubidium
17:11<smith1232>night guys
17:12<smith1232>if anyone else can help me, that would be awesome
17:13<argoneus>>want to look up how to make a simple sideline hub
17:13<argoneus>>go to wiki
17:13<argoneus>>it's complex
17:14<smith1232>yep, udp works
17:15<smith1232>i.e. my server is now advertised
17:15<smith1232>however, i see it as within my household
17:15<smith1232>which is probably not that strange

18:58<argoneus>how do wetrails work?
18:58<argoneus>I thought you could place them on water :(
19:00-!-Tirili [] has joined #openttd
19:07-!-DabuYu [DabuYu@] has joined #openttd
19:10<Eddi|zuHause>no. they just look like water. for the game they work like rails, so they must be placed on land
19:14<argoneus>the bottom part of this
19:15<argoneus>why is there the unreachable part with the combo signals?
19:15<argoneus>wouldn't doublesided combo signals work?
19:15<argoneus>without special shenanigans
19:15<Eddi|zuHause>no, because they would effectively increase the signal distance
19:15<argoneus>don't they behave as block signals in the direction where no entry signal is specified?
19:16<Eddi|zuHause>the combo signal is both an entry and an exit signal
19:16<Eddi|zuHause>so when one is red, all are red
19:16<Eddi|zuHause>in both directions
19:16<argoneus>so if I have onesided entry signal, and twosided combo signal
19:17<argoneus>then if entry is red, both combo are red?
19:17<argoneus>I thought it only worked in the one way
19:17<argoneus>it behaves as an entry signal in the one direction

19:46<argoneus>is there a reason why there cannot be signal type A in one direction and signal type B in another direction?
19:46<argoneus>is it difficult to implement?
19:47<Eddi|zuHause>that would mean in a tile with || or = rails, there are 4 different signals on it
19:47<Eddi|zuHause>needs too many bits
19:47<Eddi|zuHause>also, it's fiddly
19:47<Eddi|zuHause>and nobody uses block signals anyway
19:48<argoneus>I d o :(

19:48-!-tyteen4a03 [] has joined #openttd
19:50<argoneus>Eddi|zuHause: so you would need 12*4 bits for each tile?
19:50<argoneus>just for signals
19:51<argoneus>^ nevermind
19:51<Eddi|zuHause>3 bits for signal type, 1 bit for signal state, 1 bit for style
19:52<Eddi|zuHause>1 bit for whether the signal is present
19:52<Eddi|zuHause>so 6*4
19:53<argoneus>so if you wanted to do it separately
19:53<argoneus>you would need 3! * 2 for signal type?
19:53<Eddi|zuHause>that makes no sense
19:53<argoneus>I mean, 12 values
19:53<argoneus>which is, 4 bits
19:53-!-Tirili [] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla [SeaMonkey 2.29/20140909085502]]
19:53<Eddi|zuHause>there are 8 signal types (2 unused)
19:54<argoneus>and if you were to cover all combinations
19:54<argoneus>it'd be many more
19:54<Eddi|zuHause>the combinations are with repetition, so 8^4
19:54<Eddi|zuHause>plus style, etc.
19:56<argoneus>oh, right
19:56<argoneus>I need to remove the dust on my combinatorics

21:19<TorCoolguy>my openttd install on mac os x 10.5.8 is not working, I have opengfx installed, but every time I launch openttd it just quits unexpectedly
21:20<TorCoolguy>opengfx is in ~/Documents/OpenTTD/data
21:22<argoneus>shouldn't opengfx be in the baseset folder?
21:22<argoneus>(assuming there is one on mac)
21:23<TorCoolguy>I tried that too
21:23<argoneus>baseset, yes
21:23<TorCoolguy>that's where it is?
21:23<TorCoolguy>good, I have it there
21:23<TorCoolguy>It's supposed to be unpacked, and not in a folder right?
21:23<argoneus>I have it packed
21:24<argoneus>but it shouldn't matter
21:24<TorCoolguy>in a tar?
21:24<argoneus>just dropping the tar into the folder is enough
21:24<TorCoolguy>or in a zip?
21:24<TorCoolguy>should it be called anything?
21:24<argoneus>don't think it matters
21:24<TorCoolguy>still doesn't work :(
21:24<TorCoolguy>OpenTTD 1.4.1 works though, from macports
21:24<argoneus>I have never used mac sorry :<
21:25<argoneus>but on linux it's pretty much extract & run
21:25<argoneus>why macports?
21:25<argoneus>the universal build from website doesn't work?
21:25<TorCoolguy>Yeah it doesn't
21:25<TorCoolguy>Trying to compile it right now
21:25<TorCoolguy>Taking a while since I'm also compiling qt4
21:25<TorCoolguy>and I'm on a powermac g5.
21:29<TorCoolguy>argoneus: should the 1.4.1 and 1.4.3 version of OpenTTD be compatible through multiplayer?
21:30<argoneus>you would get a version mismatch
21:30<TorCoolguy>argoneus: Aw
21:30<TorCoolguy>argoneus: At least that explains that problem.
21:33<TorCoolguy>argoneus: what should I do about this error though?
21:35<argoneus>I have no clue, I have never used a mac :<
21:36<TorCoolguy>argoneus: anyone around here uses macs?
21:37<argoneus>no clue
21:38<+glx>why not use the osx version directely ?
21:39<TorCoolguy>I am
21:39<TorCoolguy>doesn't work

22:14<+glx>argoneus: unless you modified server_bind_ip in cfg
22:16<+glx>so it listen on all available IP
22:16<+glx>and localhost is one of them :)
22:18<+glx>TorCoolguy: and it's selected in the options ?
22:18<TorCoolguy>glx: yes
22:21<+glx>it works for me
22:21<TorCoolguy>glx: :(
22:22<+glx>but I'm on windows so that says nothing
22:22<TorCoolguy>It works in 1.4.1 though
22:22<+glx>maybe a missing lib in your custom build
22:23<TorCoolguy>like what?
22:24<TorCoolguy>sound still works.
22:24<+glx>better wait for someone knowing more than me
22:24<TorCoolguy>I can still play though :D
