00:04-!-dysoco [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:06<Eddi|zuHause>you have to unpack the .zip
00:06<Eddi|zuHause>.tar is uncompressed, so openttd can read it directly
00:07<twb>Yeah I have just seen a lot of other games aimed a windows users that compile in a libzip or so
00:07<twb>e.g. zsnes
00:08<twb>It's not a big deal; just means an extra line in my build script
00:08<Eddi|zuHause>well, we have compression for savegames, but the point here is performance, because the stuff is accessed repeatedly on disk
00:09<Eddi|zuHause>random access and compression do not mix well
00:10<Eddi|zuHause>also, the stuff downloaded from online content is compressed, and extracted after download
00:11<twb>inmates don't get access to the internet, so I don't care about that :-)
00:11<Eddi|zuHause>(you can also get opensfx from there)
00:13<Eddi|zuHause>if they can't access online content, you might want to provide a selection from there, especially AI opponents, which are not builtin
00:13<twb>okey dokey
00:13<twb>I'll look into that
00:13-!-supermop [] has joined #openttd
00:14<Eddi|zuHause>you can just download stuff, and copy over the content_download folder to any client
00:15<twb>Into /usr/share/games/openttd/data/ ?
00:15<Eddi|zuHause>downloaded content is usually put into ~/.openttd
00:16<Eddi|zuHause>but it will be found in that folder also
00:16<twb>OK good.
00:16<twb>Putting stuff in inmate homes by default is a bit painful
00:16<twb>Putting it in /usr means it's updated with the SOE
00:17<Eddi|zuHause>yes, i understand that
00:17<Eddi|zuHause>it'll probably just work(tm)
00:18<Eddi|zuHause>just be careful to not put openttd.cfg there, otherwise the game will try to save to that folder, and stuff...
00:22<Eddi|zuHause>details on how the folder discovery works can be found in the readme (section 4.2, i think)
00:38<mgrunin>openttd is shit
00:38<mgrunin>how autistic do you need to be
00:41<twb>>shrug< personally I prefer sneaking up to a band of orcs and slitting their throats one by one. YMMV

00:56-!-Eddi|zuHause [] has joined #openttd
01:05<smoke_fumus>mgrunin: fat troll, blowing chunks of oily grease on the official channel. did it worth it?
01:06<twb>smoke_fumus: what puzzles me is he didn't /join right before trolling -- he'd been here for hours
01:07<smoke_fumus>no puzzle in that. it's a fat troll. he probably forgot he wanted to troll channel when he joiner, right after he saw a boob in some ad.

01:15<mgrunin>openttd is for super virgins
01:23<Elyon>you know the weirdest thing?
01:23<Elyon>they said the /exact/ same thing about a week ago
01:23<Elyon>word for word
01:23<Elyon>haven't seen them leave since
01:26<twb>See if I was gonna do that, I'd hook it up to cron and a markov chain
01:26<twb>and then just walk away
01:26<Elyon>maybe that's what happened
01:26<twb>maybe connect it to some kind of ad revenue so it's hosting is self-funded -- like Xah Lee

10:11<kruug>I was looking to see if there was a "Portable" version of the game. I'd like to be able to install everything to a USB drive and take everything with me instead of having to copy everything off of the user directory.
10:11<kruug>I see there's the zip archive, but it still puts save games and game resources onto the main drive of the computer.
10:11<@planetmaker>openttd is portable by default
10:12<@planetmaker>openttd puts savegames and content download relative to the dir it finds the openttd.cfg
10:12<@planetmaker>thus have openttd binary accompanied by openttd.cfg and the rest in the dirs relative to the binary and you're set
10:12<@planetmaker>see also readme, section4

10:16<@planetmaker>kruug, you can simply create an empty openttd.cfg before the 1st run, too
10:21<kruug>well, that was stupidly easy. Thanks planetmaker.
