01:22<andythenorth>how do I take the second byte in nml?
01:22<andythenorth>http://newgrf-specs.tt-wiki.net/wiki/NML:IndustryTiles#Common_variables
01:23<andythenorth>nml generally does not return results as a word
01:32-!-Pikka [~Octomom@203-206-161-219.perm.iinet.net.au] has joined #openttd
01:37<Pikka>plenty of variables are more than byte-sized...
01:40<andythenorth>magic though
01:40<andythenorth>to make them the right size for eating
01:41<Pikka>if you only need the second byte, can you shift the first byte off?
01:42<andythenorth>yeah, there are shift expressions in nml
01:42<andythenorth>I am seeing if there is a better way
01:42<andythenorth>checking tile ID in the graphics chain is…waste of CPU :P
01:45<Pikka>I'm pretty sure the game is going to calculate the entire variable, even if you're only using part of it? :o
01:45<Pikka>"calculate", it's not really a calculation, just a look up :)
01:47<andythenorth>:)
01:48<Pikka>FIRS going well, then?
01:48<andythenorth>ish
01:50<andythenorth>not bad
01:50<andythenorth>how are pruple things?
01:51*andythenorth wonders when 60s compiles became acceptable instead of 10s, but eh
01:52<V453000>:D
01:52<V453000>pi Pikka
01:52<V453000>meant hi but it came out alright I guess
01:53<Pikka>pruple things are going okay. Except I have a couple of thousand words to write by midnight
01:53<Pikka>and then another couple by monday.
01:53<Pikka>when I'd rather be texturing trams.
01:53<Pikka>pi V453000
01:54<V453000>pipi
01:54<andythenorth>I used to find writing the words easy
01:54<andythenorth>it was the cutting them down from 5000 to 2000 that took the effort :P
01:54<andythenorth>FIRS is about the same actually
01:55<V453000>XD
01:55<Pikka>it's not hard, just a little tedious. :) a what-I-want-to-be-when-I-grow-up assignment designed for 17 year olds...
01:55<V453000>not bad
01:57-!-wicope [~wicope@0001fd8a.user.oftc.net] has joined #openttd
02:07*andythenorth wonders what to be when he grows up
02:07<Pikka>I want to do pineapples.
02:08<Pikka>I want to be a pineapple doer.
02:08<andythenorth>all day long
02:11<Pikka>si
02:11*andythenorth wants to be compiling FIRS faster when he grows up
02:12<Pikka>pineapple trains takes about 20 minutes to compile
02:12<andythenorth>you should make it faster
02:12<Pikka>mainly because it has to load 18,000 seperate pngs :)
02:12<andythenorth>moar power
02:13<Pikka>moar brown power
02:14<andythenorth>coal?
02:14<andythenorth>newgrfs, made of coal
02:14<Pikka>yes
02:16<andythenorth>an amazing system
02:16<andythenorth>we dig up dead animals and turn them into pixels
02:18<V453000>:D
02:18<V453000>okay
02:20<andythenorth>hmm
02:20<andythenorth>what happens if I don’t set some tile properties
02:21<V453000>dead animals protest
02:22<Pikka>it explodes and falls in a heap?
02:25<andythenorth>might do
02:25<andythenorth>or it just breaks quietly
02:25<andythenorth>or it is a non-issue :P
02:31<andythenorth>well
02:31<andythenorth>maybe I figured out animation finally :P

08:38<andythenorth>my advice is
08:38<andythenorth>more money coming in than going out
08:38<andythenorth>is good
08:38<andythenorth>but not always achieveable :P
08:38<andythenorth>sometimes more money going out than coming in
08:38<andythenorth>but that is naturally self-limiting :
08:39<@peter1138>If I had that, I could afford a new laptop ;p
08:39<andythenorth>I afforded you one, it’s ok
08:39<@peter1138>It stopped charging.
08:39<andythenorth>rubbish macs
08:40*andythenorth wonders
08:40<andythenorth>one of: charger, mac, battery, PMU
08:40<andythenorth>usually
08:40<andythenorth>don’t have any others to give away currently :P
08:43<@peter1138>It might charge eventually.
08:45<andythenorth>wiggle the magic magnet power thing
08:45<andythenorth>sometimes works

12:59<Afdal>Hey guys
13:00<Afdal>Lately there has been a trend towards newGRF developers putting in 32bpp graphics in their newGRFs
13:00<andythenorth>yair
13:00<Afdal>This is all fine and good however
13:00<andythenorth>it is the cool new thing
13:00<Afdal>32bpp runs like ass on some systems
13:00<Eddi|zuHause>you can disable 32bpp from openttd.cfg or the command line
13:00<Afdal>And needing to know some cryptic line to edit into the cfg file to restore 8bpp is not good
13:01<andythenorth>it will increase the number of valued players
13:01<Afdal>Are there plans to put this into the advanced settings menu somewhere?
13:01<andythenorth>by making this old game look more modern and exciting
13:01<Eddi|zuHause>i don't think so
13:01<Afdal>Please consider doing so
13:01<Eddi|zuHause>even if we did want that, it requires restarting openttd, and no existing setting has infrastructure to tell that
13:02<Eddi|zuHause>well, maybe it doesn't
13:02<Afdal>Another thing that bananas could really use
13:02<Rubidium>what OS is it actually?
13:02<andythenorth>why does the blitter matter?
13:02<Afdal>is an option to only download 8bpp portions of a newgrf
13:02<Afdal>Because these 32bpp things are gigantic sometimes
13:02<andythenorth>I thought the 8bpp blitter was a problem now
13:02<Eddi|zuHause>that was originally intended, but i guess nobody implemented that
13:02<Afdal>It's a ton for people to casually download when joining a server
13:03<Eddi|zuHause>the GRFv8 format was prepared so that GRFs with and without 32bpp sections have the same checksum
13:03<Eddi|zuHause>for that exact purpose
13:03<andythenorth>is the problem the blitter performance, or the filesize?
13:03<andythenorth>:)
13:03<Eddi|zuHause>of providing stripped versions of the GRFs
13:04<Rubidium>the tool to strip the 32bpp stuff from GRFs even exists
13:05<Afdal>two different problems, andythenorth
13:05<Rubidium>just the creation of the rest of the server infrastructure requires some thought, and I reckon that's at the moment the toughest part to get right

13:29<Eddi|zuHause>why is it that whenever i open a "help it doesn't work" thread i immediately have a thought on what the solution is after reading the first post, then there are 10-20 posts going in completely different directions, and the last post is "i got it, the solution is X" where X is exactly my initial thought.
13:29<andythenorth>because you are wired for that kind of thinking
13:30<__ln__>(or because you authored all those "help it doesn't work" threads yourself?)
13:30<andythenorth>also, there is a name in philosophy of science for that kind of ‘it is because it is’ reasoning, but I forgot it
13:31<andythenorth>“why have turtles survived as a species?"
13:31<andythenorth>“because they’re fitted for survival"

14:41<andythenorth>how should FIRS fix clustering?
14:41*andythenorth is not good at algorithmic stuff
14:41<andythenorth>mostly good at painting pixels
14:41<andythenorth>also html
14:42<Eddi|zuHause>i'm not up to date on what the current issues are
14:42<Eddi|zuHause>one was that the distance between individual cluster elements should be bigger
14:43<andythenorth>clusters don’t scale appropriately to map size (bigger map, more clusters)
14:43<andythenorth>is the main issue
14:43<Eddi|zuHause>that should be easy to achieve
14:43<andythenorth>I can fix the spacing within a cluster fairly trivially
14:43<andythenorth>I’m sure nfo FIRS had cluster regulation per-map size
14:43<Eddi|zuHause>there is a variable that you can read for the map size
14:44<andythenorth>written by either Eddi or Peter
14:44*andythenorth could go looking in hg
14:44<andythenorth>we scaled to some base size (maybe 1 cluster per 128x128 or so)
14:44<andythenorth>and then multiplied up

14:46<andythenorth>‘mult’ and ‘div’ are just arbitrary to me, I don’t follow what they do
14:47<andythenorth>they’re usually pairs like 5 and 4, or 3 and 2, or 1 and 2
14:47<Eddi|zuHause>5/4 is 20% more
14:47<Eddi|zuHause>or 25%
14:50<andythenorth>maybe the map scaling is still there

14:50<andythenorth>what is the ‘industry_clusters’ param
14:50*andythenorth looks
14:51<Eddi|zuHause>https://paste.openttdcoop.org/pg7evuplw <-- doesn't look like anything i ever would write
14:52<andythenorth>industry_clusters = (relative_map_size / 2) + 1;
14:52<andythenorth>relative_map_size = map_size / (256 * 256);
14:53<Eddi|zuHause>that doesn't look right
14:53<Eddi|zuHause>map_size is usually given in exponents
14:53<Eddi|zuHause>offset by 5
14:53<Eddi|zuHause>or 6
14:53<Eddi|zuHause>or so
14:53<andythenorth>so that code is present, but I assumed it wasn’t, because I see not-good results at map gen time
14:53<andythenorth>also scaling by number of industries in economy should be considered :|
14:54<andythenorth>in small economies, giant clusters form
14:54<andythenorth>which is boring for play
14:55<andythenorth>these are ‘interesting’ problems
14:55<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: i'd try removing those double /256
14:55<andythenorth>it’s a shame they can’t be delegated away from newgrf, but we are where we are :P
14:55<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: they look wrong
14:57<Eddi|zuHause>oh. nml seems to exponentiate it
14:57<Eddi|zuHause>how horrible

21:09<supermop>never seen that before
21:09<supermop>also, how long of a journey is that?
21:10<Pikka>to Cairns? 1600km iirc.
21:10<Pikka>about a thousand miles.
21:10<Pikka>half as far again as Brisbane to Sydney :)
21:10<supermop>10 hours at least i imagine?
21:11<supermop>I saw the hst thing here a few weeks ago in the station
21:11<Pikka>the tilt train does 160km/h, so yeah :)
21:11<Pikka>the XPT? yeah :)
21:11<supermop>would have been fun to take to sydney but really cannot justify that vis a vis cheap airfare
21:11<Pikka>done that one from Brisbane to Sydney and back once, never again :P
21:12<Pikka>it's so slow, and not very comfortable for how long it takes.
21:12<supermop>it doesnt even do 125mph if i recall,
21:12<supermop>must be better than ha noi to sai gon at least
21:13<Pikka>it has a maximum speed of 160km/h / 100mph
21:13<Pikka>between brisbane and sydney I think it averages about 50km/h :P
21:14<supermop>soo slower than a tram then
21:15<Pikka>well that might be an exaggeration
21:15<supermop>just extend the melb tram network up to brisbane
21:15<Pikka>but it takes about 14 hours
21:15<Pikka>vs 1.5 hours (and cheaper) to fly... yeah.
21:15<supermop>is the train at least luxurious?
21:15<Pikka>not at all
21:16<supermop>im sure could refit some sleeper compartments into some old Z1 class trams

21:24<supermop>how's school going?
21:24<Pikka>got my assignment in last night
21:24<Pikka>2000 words due monday, I'll start after the Eurovision final :)
21:26<Flygon>Brahs
21:26<Flygon>Everyone knows the ultimate in Australian HST technology is the VLocity
21:27<Flygon>Which's also a bit depressing because they only go up to 177km/h in normal service (and even that's overspeed...)
21:33<supermop>fiance is in the thick of finishing up masters assignments here - pretty hectic
21:37<Pikka>good stuff
21:45<supermop>then after that need to arange to ship stuff back and hopefully have a couple days to enjoy the cold and rain before heading home
21:53<supermop>i wonder if bikeshare stations could work in game
