05:10<argoneus>good morning train friends
05:12<@planetmaker>moin moin
05:15<murr4y>choo choo
05:25<supermop>so my book arrived from germany today
05:25<V453000>yo supermop
05:26-!-Progman [] has joined #openttd
05:26<V453000>supermop: this is what I do with yeti render -> sprites
05:26<V453000>just after effects + photoshop magix

05:26-!-mode/#openttd [+v tokai|noir] by ChanServ
05:29<argoneus>V453000: looks like wizardry to me
05:29<argoneus>especially all those cryptic settings in 3ds
05:29<V453000>settings. :)
05:32<V453000>GI is global illumination btw
05:32-!-tokai|mdlx [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:36<supermop>anyway, there was not much in the book about the building i was interested in
05:37<supermop>but i did find a gem in the advertisements:

05:43-!-Progman_ is now known as Progman
05:44<@planetmaker>not wizardry. But professional graphics design, I call that. Not that I can do that as easily :)
05:45<NGC3982>Will the autoreplace function make the game stop nag me about old vehicles?
05:46<NGC3982>(Even when using a >1 month after-old wait time)
05:46-!-FLHerne [] has joined #openttd
05:46-!-FLHerne [] has quit []
05:48<V453000>it isnt even that hard to do, just basic knowledge of the postproduction software is enough... it is very clean though :)
05:48<argoneus>postproduction is photoshop and aftereffects?
05:49<V453000>in this case yes
05:49<argoneus>is aftereffects like sony vegas on steroids?
05:49<argoneus>or are they different
05:50<V453000>I wouldnt compare it to sony vegas, no, that is what Premiere is for
05:50-!-Pikka [] has joined #openttd
05:51<argoneus>is premiere better than vegas?
05:52<V453000>I dont use either much
05:52<V453000>cant compare
05:52<argoneus>but so basically
05:52<argoneus>aftereffects is for adding things on the scenes
05:52<argoneus>basically a photoshop for videos
05:52<argoneus>and premiere/vegas is for putting clips together, adding music etc?
05:53<V453000>kind of, yes
05:53<V453000>hi dih
06:07-!-sla_ro|master [slamaster@] has joined #openttd
06:10<argoneus>imagine if there were trains in real life
06:12<supermop>imagine if seinfeld was on tv today
06:26<dihedral>imagine silly statements being made on irc
06:28<@planetmaker>now, don't be silly! ;)
06:28<b_jonas>argoneus: yeah, and imagine if they were openttd's extra long trains, they could fit to single tile depots, self-intersect, and reverse in place!
06:28<argoneus>and make 90 degree turns
06:29<argoneus>what is self-intersect
06:29<argoneus>and they can reverse in place kind of
06:29<argoneus>many trains have two engines
06:29<argoneus>just have the driver walk to the other side
06:29<b_jonas>and imagine vacuum trains in real life, ones that not only have a high top speed, but also accelerate as quickly as the openttd ones
06:30-!-Quatroking [] has joined #openttd
06:32<b_jonas>argoneus: self-intersect is when the start of a long train runs into a carriage near the end on a looping track. that doesn't caues a collision, unlike when it runs into another train
06:32<b_jonas>argoneus: as for reverse, sure, trains and especially trams can do that with two engines, but openttd trains reverse the sequence and orientation of their carriages so one engine can appear on the other side of the train instantiously as long as the train is stopped
06:33<argoneus>b_jonas: I haven't seen the first happen
06:33<argoneus>so train can't collide with itself?
06:33<argoneus>I could've sworn it crashes
06:33<b_jonas>argoneus: you sort of have to make it happen, it doesn't happen on normal routes
06:34<b_jonas>try to make a + crossing tile then connect two of its ends with three short railway tiles
06:34<b_jonas>then get a train to run through that

08:57-!-TrueBrain [] has joined #openttd
08:57<andythenorth>distance/2 is constant
08:57<andythenorth>as compared to say ‘distance * distance’
08:57<andythenorth>or ‘distance * 1.5 if distance < 32 else distance * 2’
08:58<andythenorth>is there some bit shift or something in there that I don’t understand?

10:18<frosch123>don't worry, you didn't miss anything important
10:18<simozzz>I came to ask if anybody play xUSSRset here? Need some feedback about it.
10:22-!-Pensacola [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:25<simozzz>We've came to a question how to translate some early steam series like "Ы" or "Ь"...

10:28<simozzz>We also need graphics for FIRS cargoes
10:30<simozzz>But it seems andy is away...
10:30<andythenorth>it does?
10:30<simozzz>Well.. not now)
10:36<simozzz>Andy, do you have graphics of scrap metal, farm supplies(or it could be defined as fertilizers? ), engineering supplies and others? Or could you tell me someone who have made them for other trainsets?
10:39<andythenorth>V453000 made loads
10:39<simozzz>Also wonder about all cargo density? It is needed to determine max capacity of some boxcars.
10:39<andythenorth>farm supplies can be fertilisers
10:39<andythenorth>cargos are documented here
10:40<andythenorth>if you need more, it’s in the code
10:40<andythenorth>engineering supplies, some people take from HEQS
10:41<andythenorth>assuming GPL
10:42-!-Jomann [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:43<simozzz>Thanks for links. ES from HEQS won't work since they are in different scale.
10:44<simozzz>But that'll be awesome if you can redraw them...
10:44<simozzz>or atleast include ones we will make later in HEQS.
10:46<@planetmaker>how should it work? Adjust the sprites depending on the train set(s) running concurrently to heqs?
10:47-!-zeknurn [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:47-!-zeknurn [] has joined #openttd
10:48<argoneus>would it be possible to create a slave newgrf?
10:48<argoneus>like, a bunch of black men dragging coal around
10:48<argoneus>or egyptians
10:50-!-sla_ro|master [slamaster@] has joined #openttd
10:51<simozzz>Planetmaker, it'll be good to have same sprites both as road vehicles and cargo on platforms.
10:51<@planetmaker>simozzz, yes. Then you definitely should adjust to heqs.
10:51<@planetmaker>as its sprites are used already in several places
10:51<@planetmaker>and several newgrfs
10:52<simozzz>and we already use some ISR graphics.
10:52<andythenorth>argoneus: yes, you could create that
10:52<andythenorth>go ahead
10:53<andythenorth>slaves aren’t exclusively black or egyptian btw
10:53<argoneus>egyptians didn't even have slaves
10:53<argoneus>but slaves were typically african
10:53<simozzz>but sprites that in HEQS already will be bigger than needed.
10:54<andythenorth>argoneus: ‘typically’ ?
10:55<V453000>simozzz: NUTS has all cargo spritez :P
10:55<argoneus>when someone says slave
10:55<argoneus>you don't imagine a blonde swede
10:55<argoneus>or do you
10:56-!-simozzz [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
10:56<andythenorth>I am sitting 3 floors up in the world’s biggest slave trading port in 1000 AD
10:56<andythenorth>the street I am on used to have chained up slaves going along it daily
10:57-!-SHOTbyGUN [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
10:58<argoneus>where are you from again
10:58<andythenorth>same place as TTD, oddly enough

10:58<argoneus>where is that
10:59-!-simozzz [~oftc-webi@] has joined #openttd
10:59<argoneus>biggest slave trading port 1000 AD
10:59<argoneus>can't be amerika
10:59*argoneus facepalms
10:59<argoneus>britain then?
10:59<andythenorth>good save

11:02-!-simozzz [~oftc-webi@] has joined #openttd
11:03<simozzz>have some problems with connection.
11:04<simozzz>someone definitely should make newgrf with slaves cargo and industries related to itm
11:04<andythenorth>origin of ‘Slave’ might be ‘Slav’
11:04<andythenorth>simozzz: the problem is whether it’s seen as glorifying slavery or satirising
11:04<Eddi|zuHause>or the other way around?
11:04<argoneus>andythenorth: it could be neither
11:04<andythenorth>it’s never neither with topics like that
11:05<argoneus>I don't see anything wrong with it
11:05<argoneus>slavery is outlawed today, but it was a part of the old times
11:05<Eddi|zuHause>what was this "concentration camp tycoon" thingie again?
11:05<andythenorth>due to game players being at least as thick as the next average person
11:05<andythenorth>some would revel in slavery
11:05<andythenorth>with racist overtones
11:05<argoneus>Eddi|zuHause: that's still fresh
11:05<argoneus>people who went through that are still alive
11:05<Eddi|zuHause>there was this picture a few years ago
11:05<argoneus>are any slaves or their children alive?
11:06<andythenorth>millions of people are thought to be in slavery
11:06<argoneus>do they have access to ottd
11:06<andythenorth>21 million people at current estimate
11:06<simozzz>hm... have anyone thought about 'carribean tycoon'? Where most valuable cargoes are gold, rum and slaves?))
11:06<Eddi|zuHause>argoneus: what kind of sick argument is that?
11:07<andythenorth>simozzz: similar to Heart of Darkness in FIRS
11:07<andythenorth>except no slaves
11:07<andythenorth>I left the slaves out
11:07<andythenorth>considered it
11:07<andythenorth>but decided colonial exploitation was far enough on the good taste scale
11:07<@planetmaker>yeti kinda is the satire comical side of it
11:07<andythenorth>yetis ain’t no people either
11:07<andythenorth>where are their rights?
11:07<Eddi|zuHause>__ln__: ah yes, that one
11:08<andythenorth>that’s not particularly offensive in any way
11:08<andythenorth>any more than Wolfenstein, or concentration camp lego
11:08<simozzz>Andy, kind of, but not in modern times but around 16th century.
11:09<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: remember that scene from star trek, where the klingon guy claims even the word "human rights" is racist?
11:09<argoneus>Eddi|zuHause: it's not a sick argument
11:09<simozzz>lego concentration camp? never thought about buildint anything like that))
11:09<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause no, but I think I see the point
11:10<argoneus>there's a difference between having generic slaves in a game and red swastikas with arbeit macht frei written everywhere
11:10<andythenorth>what colour are generic slaves?
11:10-!-MTs-iPad [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
11:11<argoneus>all sorts of colours
11:11-!-MTs-iPad [] has joined #openttd
11:11<argoneus>but you usually see them portrayed as black
11:11<andythenorth>google images agrees with you
11:12<Eddi|zuHause>argoneus: it really is... "we can make fun of the misery of other people, as long as they won't find out."
11:12<argoneus>I didn't mean it to sound like that
11:12<argoneus>there's nothing to be made fun of
11:13<andythenorth>anyway nothing stops you making the grf

11:13<andythenorth>I think it has design challenges
11:13<simozzz>Lets make these slaves pink!
11:13-!-MTs-iPad [] has joined #openttd
11:14<simozzz>Than noone will be harmed or will have thoughts of these being racist.
11:14<argoneus>more like moral challenges
11:14<argoneus>I mean
11:14<argoneus>people were freaking out over mr. popo from dragonball
11:14<argoneus>so much that one of the dubs made him blue
11:14<argoneus>that's just sad
11:14<Eddi|zuHause>no idea who that is
11:15<argoneus>google mr. popo
11:15<argoneus>you'll see why
11:15<Eddi|zuHause>i won't ever put the word "popo" into google :p

11:17<simozzz>Btw I thaik that coloured people's fight for polite correction is also racism.
11:17<argoneus>maybe I am just biased by being czech
11:17<@planetmaker>"polite correction". That sounds like 1984
11:18<argoneus>my country seems to be racist in general
11:18<argoneus>not sure if V453000 would agree
11:18<@planetmaker>it's surprising how racist people are, even if they don't agree ;)
11:19<argoneus>what do you mean
11:19<simozzz>Why white can't call someone black or niger, while they can call us white or snowball?

11:21<@planetmaker>he won't hear you for 1.25 days, V453000
11:22<V453000>what did he do?
11:22<@planetmaker>spread racist propaganda in this channel, basically
11:22<frosch123>this is no political channel
11:22<V453000>well that is how it actually works in czech republic
11:22<V453000>not much of a propaganda
11:22<frosch123>the majority of groups is never suitable to talk about a minority
11:22<V453000> /enuf
11:22<frosch123>be it races, genders or orientations
11:23<Eddi|zuHause>yes, if you're a heterosexual white male, you can't discuss anything :p
11:23<andythenorth>I am always being oppressed
11:23<andythenorth>I find
11:24*andythenorth is doing that ‘saying the opposite of truth’ thing
11:24<Eddi|zuHause>anyway, the core about all these "-isms" is asymmetry
11:24<V453000>Eddi|zuHause: XD
11:25<Eddi|zuHause>and that gets extended by blaming all your problems on the other group
11:25<Eddi|zuHause>and that can't ever result in anything positive happening
11:25<andythenorth>if we’re kbanning other people for talking politics
11:25<andythenorth>we shouldn’t
11:26<andythenorth>otherwise it’s just another abuse of power

11:30<Headbang>is there a minimum spec to run a openttd server? memory cpu wise?
11:31<frosch123>depends on you map size
11:31<frosch123>cpu limits map size and number of vehicles
11:32<frosch123>upload bandwidth limits speed in which players can join
11:32<frosch123>other stats are likely irrelevant
11:32<Headbang>ok, ive got a old computer but it sure wasnt up to spec for minecraft :) but i have would think openttd is less memory hogging
11:33<Headbang>the bandwith shouldnt be a problem, luxury of ftth
11:33<frosch123>Headbang: <- you can find some busy savegames there
11:33<frosch123>that will tell you how big maps and how many vehicles it can handle
11:33<frosch123>i.e. whehter vehicles run smooth, or are lagging

12:24<Eddi|zuHause>a wild parcel appeared.
12:27<andythenorth>peter1138: there might be shenanigans with the OS install
12:27<andythenorth>fonso had to sort it out
12:28<andythenorth>I thought we’d shipped them with an OS and dev tools, but maybe not
12:28<@peter1138>Should be fine, there's a USB key.
12:29<andythenorth>yeah that didn’t work for fonso :|
12:29<andythenorth>slight miscommunication between me and our office manager
12:29<andythenorth>there should be a .iso which you can burn to DVD though
12:30<@peter1138>Hmm, well it boots. I don't have an Apple ID to get any further yet.
12:30<andythenorth>ach you don’t need that, unless you want to download latest xcode
12:31<andythenorth>I used to ignore all that crap
12:31<NGC3982>What's "Apple ID"?
12:31<andythenorth>until I wanted to have icloud for baby photos
12:31<@peter1138>Wouldn't let me ignore it.
12:31<@peter1138>Hmm, I'll try again.
12:31<andythenorth>sounds dumb, you can’t get an Apple ID without a web connection
12:31<andythenorth>bit limiting if you don’t have a computer :P
12:31<andythenorth>maybe they changed it
12:35<@peter1138>Ah, I get it, it wants to download OS X with it.

15:12<@Alberth>contracts fail with cargo-dist :(
15:15<frosch123>any gs with a specific industry/town target fails with cdist
15:15<frosch123>but i think "fail" is the wrong term
15:16<frosch123>those gs are more like an alternative to cdist
15:18<andythenorth>contracts don’t fail with cdist
15:19<andythenorth>sounds like the common misnomer that cdist sets destinations
15:19<andythenorth>if cdist failed with contracts, that’s either player error or a bug to report to fonso :)
15:20<andythenorth>the thing with cdist is that it demands a careful network
15:20<andythenorth>or rather, many networks
15:22*andythenorth is becoming a cdist convert
15:23<fonsinchen>By using the cargodist script API you could check if your goals are realistic
15:24<frosch123>i think andy is thinking about unserviced industries, so cdist wouldn't know them
15:26<andythenorth>and as long as the player doesn’t bridge networks there is no problem
15:26<andythenorth>cdist will just route ok
15:26-!-HerzogDeXtEr [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
15:27<andythenorth>my current cdist game has zero problems
15:27<andythenorth>lots of many->one primary cargo routes
15:28<andythenorth>a big many->one->many secondary cargo route (it’s a SV game with target 5 industries)
15:28<fonsinchen>You can progressively increase the cargo requirements to the industries. Once they're connected you can see what cargodist wants to do.
15:28<andythenorth>lots of one->some routes for supplies
15:28<simozzz>Andy, you are speaking about locomotion-like ttd for phones?
15:29<andythenorth>I have no one->many routes
15:29<andythenorth>one->many is a case where cdist will struggle to meet player expectations
15:30<fonsinchen>That's the case where it actually does something, yes.
15:31<andythenorth>hard for cdist to know what player / industry grf / GS requires
15:31<andythenorth>more likely to fail than win I think
15:31<andythenorth>but by avoiding that case, it works excellently
15:34<andythenorth>apparently I have effect of distance at 100%

15:55<Wolf01>could you try this?
15:55<Core>My bandwidth is certainly more than 1-5 Kb/s

16:00<Core>All other multiplayer games work fine
16:00<Core>it's strange
16:01<Core>is there a central server for Openttd?
16:01<Core>That I must go through before connect to the actual host?
16:01<Sylf>well, there's the server that lists the available game hosts
16:01<Sylf>and you already connected to that one
16:02<Core>the download system works fine

17:34<@planetmaker>frosch123, indeed I gave openttd on a phone a shot earlier today... not sure I'll try again
17:35<@planetmaker>10" tablet might work
17:35<frosch123>i assume it was not your phone
17:36<@planetmaker>oh it actually is.
17:36<@planetmaker>was just curious
17:36<frosch123>aw, i thought you met some random guy, and said: hey, nice game, can i try it?
17:36<@planetmaker>my old broke, so I needed a replacement

17:36<frosch123>planetmaker: do you return the phone now?
17:37<@planetmaker>no :P
17:37<frosch123>i mean, if it is new, you can surely return it, if it does not run ottd
17:37<@planetmaker>well, I still have 13 days to return it, yes
17:37<frosch123>ah, i see, you are waiting for more gui patches
17:38<@planetmaker>but I don't want a 24" monitor with a GPRS device glued to the back :D
17:39<frosch123>i am waiting for the device that covers the complete inner side of your forearm
17:39<Rubidium_>iphone 10?
17:39<@planetmaker>frosch123, not sure GUI patches would actually cut it for me
17:39<frosch123>would be weird aspect ratio though
17:39<@planetmaker>I tried to build some rail. And that is... not fun with a touch device. That needs probably exactly this polyline trackbuilding tool or similar
17:40<@planetmaker>with a preview option and 2nd confirmation after review
17:40<@planetmaker>thus it needs more than just some window layouts
17:41<@planetmaker>the toolbar on the android version actually is on the sides. Which is a good place to put it. And new map window is also adjusted in not a bad way
17:41<frosch123>"new map window"? is that worldgen or smallmap?
17:42<@planetmaker>the climates are left of the rest
17:42<@planetmaker>it's a bit re-shuffled to better fit wide screens
17:43<@planetmaker>maybe I can create a screenshot...
17:43<frosch123>nah, i can imagine
17:43<Zuu>Hmm reading forum posts about something you got a patch for is dangerous :-)
17:43<@planetmaker>hehe, Zuu :)
17:44<@planetmaker>welcome back to the game ;)
17:44<Zuu>At least if said patch is not complete :-)
17:45<@planetmaker>anyhow, I find the placement of stuff with a touch device the most tedious and inaccurate thing
17:45<Zuu>I watched some CppCon presentations yesterday including keynote by Bjarne. Made me want to do some C++ again. Although OpenTTD is not really the landscape for newer standards. :-)
17:45<@planetmaker>That's what basically disillusioned me a bit
17:46<andythenorth>I hate touch
17:46<andythenorth>hate is maybe too strong
17:46<andythenorth>touch is frustratingly non-tactile
17:46<frosch123> <- btw.: current nml output for ogfx+rv
17:46<frosch123>tomorrow i hope to get to register usage
17:47<frosch123>all those id assignments actually happen quite late in the processing and are surprisingly independent
17:47<@planetmaker> (@return_action_22) <-- what info does that carry?
17:47<frosch123>that's unfinished, it should look like the thing for the spritesets
17:47<@planetmaker>it's info currently not exposed anywhere, directly from the ast?
17:48<@planetmaker>aye :)
17:48<frosch123>i am unsure how many info to flood
17:48<frosch123>currently i print all id types, of which at least 1 is used
17:48<frosch123>but total number of spritesets and spritegroups does not look particulary useful
17:49<frosch123>so i think i'll limit it to the things with limits
17:49<Rubidium_>you could add levels of the "debug" information
17:50<Rubidium_>e.g. -v for the limited things, -vv for the limited and unlimited things
17:50<frosch123>currently there is a single "--quiet" option
17:50<frosch123>which also silences warnings
17:50<frosch123>one could add an "--verbose" option for more stats
17:51<frosch123>but i rather skip info without use, and keep useful as default
17:55<frosch123>planetmaker: also, is my comment in #6474 correct? if so, i have a patch for it :p
17:59<@planetmaker>If I only knew what I thought a year ago :)
17:59<@planetmaker>when I looked at it earlier briefly again I was more like "why the hell would a newgrf want to care?"
17:59<@planetmaker>but I sure someone explained to me one reason back then
18:00<frosch123>the only usecase i know is to make different wagons available, which only differ in speed limit
18:00<frosch123>you know, that 10 year old bug in dbset :p
18:02<@planetmaker>I remember, yes
18:02<frosch123> <- also, one of the mysteries of nml :p
18:03<frosch123>what is the reasoning to add things like "newtrains", but not "wagonspeedlimits"?
18:04<frosch123> <- many of them are useless, but the nml selection looks rather random to me
18:06<@planetmaker>hehe. The reasoning is lost in the misty past
18:07<@planetmaker>I do remember that we discussed at that time which features and switches we want to expose in NML and which better not for BAD FEATURE reasons
18:08<@planetmaker>but I think time showed that BAD FEATURE is hard to avoid by these means... and there's often also good reasons for them being accessible

19:00<NGC3982>Am i to simply download each file one by one, or is this some form of magical terminal solution?

19:04<@peter1138>Err, which key is del on a macbook? :S
19:06<frosch123>try some modifier key with backspace?
19:06<frosch123>i mean, they write "delete" on the backspace key
19:10<@peter1138>Ah, fn-backspace. Annoying.
19:10<frosch123>you are not supposed to work with machine
19:11<NGC3982>frosch123: Thanks.
19:11<Zuu>fn-backspace - how is that supposed to work with an external keyboard? Or are you supposed to have a special mac keyboard?
19:12<@peter1138>Probably the del key works...
19:17<Zuu>How does SL chunks work? Will failing to perform all reads in a Check_xxx method means that the file seek is off and thus corrupt further reading or can Check_xxx just load the inital stuff and skip the bottom stuff?
19:18<frosch123>i think you either need to skip the whole chunk, or read it as a whole
19:19<frosch123>but _date_check_desc for example ignores some things it is not interested in
19:20<NGC3982>frosch123: Have you used supybot with soap yourself?
19:20<frosch123>as a user :p
19:20<frosch123>not as an admin
19:20<NGC3982>I see.
19:20<NGC3982>I'm reading the manual, but i can't seem to find the actual way to connect supybot with the running server.
19:22-!-pixar- [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
19:22<Zuu>frosch123: _date_check_desc seems to do that by still declaring the size of the chunk and creating all Sl* instances.
19:22<frosch123>NGC3982: you need to set an admin password ni openttd.cfg
19:22<frosch123>and then also put that password into the soap config
19:22<frosch123>Zuu: yes, it reads all, but does not store all
19:22<Zuu>For checking a GS, it means I have to actually load the whole GS then as the GS loader internally loads stuff from the savegame.
19:23<frosch123>i doubt that
19:23<frosch123>i think the gs gets a string
19:23<frosch123>you can read the string from the save, and then ignore it
19:23<frosch123>no need to pass it to the gs
19:24<Zuu>I mean the savegame contains savegame data of the GS in the same chunk as the meta info of the GS.
19:24-!-Biolunar [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
19:25<Zuu>Oh, now my program works when loading all GS data in Check :-)
19:26<frosch123>you can load the whole _game_script thingie, you do not need to use the result
19:26<frosch123>you can also define a _game_script_check, with some NULL maybe
19:26<NGC3982>frosch123: Is soap bound to openttd.cfg? I use separate re-named config files for my dedicated server.
19:27<frosch123>NGC3982: no idea, but ottd won't allow anyone to connect if there is no admin password

19:28<frosch123>NGC3982: from the docs:
19:28<frosch123>config channel [#yourchan] plugins.Soap.<setting> <value>
19:28<Zuu>I was missing Game::Load(_game_saveload_version) which will load more stuff from the save than just what SlObject loads.
19:29<frosch123>so, config channel #yourchannel yourip
19:30<frosch123>Zuu: are you sure you want to call the function?
19:30<frosch123>i would expect that breaks the currently running gs when opening the load game window in game
19:31<Zuu>I don't really want to call it, but not calling it means I get chuck size failed.
19:31<frosch123>well, you need some dummy method, which just reads the data
19:32<frosch123>ScriptInstance::LoadObjects but without the sq_xxx calls
19:33<Zuu>You are right about that. I just was hoping to not have to duplicate too much stuff.
19:33<Zuu>One way is a dry-run param though.
19:33-!-Myhorta [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
19:33<frosch123>oi, actually
19:33<frosch123>there are vm != NULL checks in LoadObjects
19:34<frosch123>ah, true, if there is no script, the data is already discarded
19:34<frosch123>so, you can just use that functionality
19:35<frosch123>so, you only need a stripped version of ScriptInstance::Load (10 LOC), but you can reuse LoadObjects
19:35<Zuu>So maybe it just need a copy of ScriptInstance::Load that doesn't use the VM.
19:35<frosch123>ScriptInstance::LoadEmpty <- he, that does exactly that
19:36<frosch123>it's all there, one just has to find it :p

20:29<Aaron_>What happened to Monorail options?
20:29<Sylf>Are you playing with any NewGRF(add-on)s?
20:29<Aaron_>Yes, Lemme guess.... They disabled monorail options?
20:30<Sylf>many train sets don't have monorails or maglevs
20:30<Aaron_>Thats the od part, i have the Maglev, but no monorail.
20:30<Aaron_>Thats the odd part, i have the Maglev, but no monorail.
20:31<Sylf>sets like NARS or UKRS have some maglevs
20:31<Aaron_>Im running NARS
20:31<Aaron_>Havent tried UKRS
20:31<Sylf>NARS provides standard rail trains and maglevs.
20:32<Sylf>Maglev selection in NARS is slim.
20:32<Sylf>Either pax/mail only, or... maybe it has goods maglevs.
20:32<Sylf>That's about it. Same goes for UKRS 3.04
20:33<Aaron_>We talking about the same NARS?
20:33<Sylf>we should. there's only 1 NARS - North American
20:33<Aaron_>We might be, ive noticed the PAX.
20:34<Aaron_>Havent touched Maglav in NARS yet
20:34<Aaron_>Old fasioned, Start in 1831.
20:34<Sylf>anyway, these train sets disables all default trains, and place its own set of trains.
20:34<Sylf>so if the set doesn't include any monorail trains, then you won't see it in your game
20:35<Sylf>so it's not because of upgrade from 1.3 to 1.4.
20:36<Aaron_>NARVS Seems to run fine as well, Anyrecommendations for transport trucks? NARVS covers PAX
20:37<Sylf>eGRVTS, hungarian set, long road vehicles etc...
20:38<Sylf>oh, and OpenGFX+ Road Vehicles
20:38<Sylf>and HEQS.
20:40<Aaron_>Which one would you prefur, The system im running is efficient, until half the trucks go out of date, and then im stuck using rail again.
20:40<Sylf>I don't use RVs
20:41<Sylf>They're all good.
