04:32<openbu>Can I join the
04:35<@Alberth>Perhaps you mean to create a new project? 2nd point
04:36<@Alberth>or do you want to get a project from the repository?
04:36<V453000>answer is yes Alberth
04:37<@Alberth>clearly, to which suggestion is not entirely clear though :)
04:46<@Alberth>yw :)
05:09<@planetmaker>openbu, sure. Anyone who wants to contribute to OpenTTD in the broader sense is welcome there
05:11<@planetmaker>New registrants cannot yet create a project yet. Thus your first project needs to be approved, but that's more a formality
05:11<@planetmaker> :)
05:12<@planetmaker>(that's additional to creating a personal account)
05:16-!-sla_ro|master [] has joined #openttd
05:21<openbu>thanks to planetmaker,The number of contributors is I want to contribute the openTTD project.
05:23<@Alberth>doing what?
05:24<@Alberth>what type? trains, road vehicles, ships, aircraft, landscape, industries?
05:27<@Alberth>:O lots of sprites :)
05:28<@Alberth>people seem to switch from a simple newgrf to a 'simple' baseset, nowadays :)
05:31<@planetmaker>well :) It usually is a good idea to make both: a series of (simple) NewGRFs. And then to combine those in a base set
05:31<@planetmaker>But one really has to make sure the NewGRFs don't get complicated or it will be much more work :)
05:31<@planetmaker>No fancy stuff in the NewGRFs... mostly just actionA (simple replacement)
05:39<openbu>I want to contribute to NewGRF,Real-World,Patch.
05:52<@Alberth>what is your contribution? It looks like a plain copy of code from here
05:54<@Alberth>contributions are always in source code form, never in binary zip files
06:01<qwebirc61183>where can I find the changelog for 1.5.2?
06:01<qwebirc61183>even in the github repo I can't find anything useful when searching for changelog
06:02-!-liq3 [] has quit []
06:03<TrueBrain>1.5.2 isnt released (yet); 1.5.2-RC1 is
06:03<qwebirc61183>are there only changelogs for stable releases?
06:03<TrueBrain>easiest to find the changelog is via
06:04<TrueBrain>and for stables
06:07<qwebirc61183>TrueBrain: THANKS a lot! I just didn't see this link to changelog... :/
06:07<TrueBrain>it is also in our repos (changelog.txt), but the github sync of our repos is of trunk only
06:07<TrueBrain>not of our 1.5 branch
06:08<qwebirc61183>so where else can I find your repos?
06:08<TrueBrain>svn://, if my memory serves me right
06:09<TrueBrain>or the git sync:, there branches/1.5
06:09<TrueBrain>(and mercurial is also available, if you fancy that :P)
06:10<TrueBrain>but I wouldnt recommend a WebDAV entry for anything sane :P
06:10<TrueBrain>I believe we created too many entry points for the same thing :D:D
06:11<qwebirc61183>mercurial? I've never heard of that before :D github and svn is quite common I guess, but mercurial?
06:11<TrueBrain>very well known
06:11<TrueBrain>bitbucket, is a fine example of the github counter part in mercurial
06:16<@Alberth>mercurial is a lot like git, but with a sane user interface
06:16<TrueBrain>'sane' in the eye of the beholder, ofc :D
06:16<TrueBrain>*ignites the flamewar*
06:17<@Alberth>hmm, I should collect nice example of git sanity :p
06:17*blathijs really loves git and hates hg, but I agree that hg's ui is more sane :-)
06:17-!-qwebirc72391 [] has joined #openttd
06:17<qwebirc72391>the damn webchat has crashed ...
06:18<qwebirc72391>i should've used a full irc client (even for little questions)
06:18<qwebirc72391>well, why would you need a sane user interface?
06:18<@Alberth>usually the length of the answer is more important :)
06:19<TrueBrain>because insane user interfaces are harder to work with :D:D:D
06:19-!-qwebirc61183 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
06:19<TrueBrain>just imagine .. an interface where the letters jump around
06:19<TrueBrain>where no button is ever on the same place
06:19<TrueBrain>where the colors play around with you
06:19<TrueBrain>the insanity :D
06:19<qwebirc72391>true :)
06:19<@Alberth>just random moving elements around is sufficient, I think :)
06:20<qwebirc72391>but I was more like: why would you need an ser interface?
06:20<TrueBrain>well, without it using a computer is so hard
06:20<TrueBrain>you want to talk to it?
06:20<TrueBrain>use morse code to communicate with it?
06:20<@Alberth>note that command-line is also a user interface here
06:20<qwebirc72391>sure, you don't?
06:21<@Alberth>wait, it speaks morse code??
06:21<@Alberth>damn, I should have learned that :)
06:21<TrueBrain>yours doesnt??!!
06:21<@Alberth>nah, mine only does 0s and 1s
06:22<TrueBrain>which translates fine to morse, not? :)
06:22<@Alberth>maybe I should upgrade
06:22<TrueBrain>short vs long? :D
06:22<@Alberth>it also has short and long pauses :)
06:23<TrueBrain>we call that -0 and -1
06:23-!-Wolf01 [] has joined #openttd
06:23<TrueBrain>hello Wolf01
06:23-!-randomname [] has joined #openttd
06:23<Wolf01>hi hi
06:23<randomname>this damn webchat :D
06:24<randomname>now it should be more stable ...
06:24<TrueBrain>oeh, a IPv6 user
06:24<TrueBrain>scary :P
06:24<randomname>Sometimes Deutsche Telekom is a nice provider
06:25<TrueBrain>I am still waiting for my native IPv6 support :(
06:25<TrueBrain>once again they stopped the rollout of it ..
06:25<randomname>where are you from?
06:26<TrueBrain>from my mother; why?
06:26<@Alberth>moin W
06:27<randomname>I was wondering if you are maybe from Germany, because Germany is usually a pretty bad v6 country
06:27<TrueBrain>every country is bad in IPv6
06:28<TrueBrain>at least datacenters have their shit together relative well the last few months
06:28<TrueBrain>most offer it natively now
06:28<TrueBrain>so that is a start
06:28<TrueBrain>ISPs are slowly following ... but slowly
06:28<TrueBrain>at least everyone understand it is needed, no longer optional :)

06:28<@Alberth>don't want to disturb XP users :p
06:29<randomname>wait, XP doesn't support v6? :D
06:29-!-sla_ro|master [] has quit []
06:29<randomname>shit, I have to update in like 5 years :D
06:30<randomname>I think as an ISP you can't buy any new v4 ranges, can you?
06:31<Flygon>My ISP supports IPv6 very well
06:31<Flygon>My Modem is stuck in 1997 >_>
06:31<Flygon>Doesn't even support WPA2-Enterprise to prevent Windows 10 shenanigans :(
06:31<Flygon>1997 was an exaeration
06:32<Flygon>More... 2007-2009
06:32<Flygon>Best I got is WPA2 Wireless N
06:32<Flygon>Shower time!
06:32-!-sla_ro|master [] has joined #openttd
06:34<randomname>What's the advantage of WPA2-Enterprise over common WPA2?
06:35<blathijs>randomname: You don't normally buy IP ranges at all, they just get assigned freely to members of the regional registries (RIPE / ARIN / etc.). However, now that ipv4 is nearly gone, there will be a waiting list soon.
06:36<blathijs>It does sometimes happen that companies sell ipv4 space the are no longer using among each other
06:37<randomname>blathijs: thanks, didn't know that. I just read things like "the very last v4 range sold" from time to time
06:39<blathijs>randomname: There is a global registry, IANA, which assigns ranges (in blocks of 2^24 addresses) to local registries (roughly by continent). IANA has assigned all of its blocks IIRC, but the regional registries still have some space left from their last assigned block
06:41-!-Pikka [] has joined #openttd
06:42<randomname>thanks again
06:43<randomname>it just remembered
06:43<blathijs>randomname: Everyone one of those squares is a 2^24 block I mentioned

07:01<randomname>do you have any influence on the repos of ubuntu? 1.5.0 is their version right now
07:03*blathijs has
07:03<blathijs>Seems Ubuntu has 1.5.1, at least in the latest Ubuntu version?
07:04<blathijs>(I'm the Debian maintainer for OpenTTD, so the packages I upload to Debian typically get synced automatically to Ubuntu, so I don't have a direct influence on this)
07:05<blathijs>randomname: It actually seems 1.5.0 is not in _any_ Ubuntu version right now?§ion=all
07:09<randomname>blathijs: for me, it's 1.5.0-1~getdeb1 (utopic-getdeb)
07:10<randomname>but maybe, I just need to change my package sources

07:45<CCHyper>Good Afternoon, is was wondering if there are any developers active at the moment?
07:47<Xaroth|Work>there are developers active all the time
07:47<Xaroth|Work>but you'd have to be a bit more specific than that :P
07:49<blathijs>randomname: Seems you have it installed from "getdeb", which I think is a non-official repository. Not sure who maintains that. The official utopic repo only has up to 1.4.1, so you can either upgrade your Ubuntu, just pick up the openttd packages from the latest ubuntu, or get a .deb file from
07:49<Xaroth|Work>^ that last bit will most likely work best
07:50<CCHyper>hah, i'm mainly after the initial creator or the developer that has the most overall decision? I have some questions as I have a very similar project in development for another game.
07:50<CCHyper>Xaroth|Work: apolagies, im multitasking while at work and hiding from the boss lol
07:51<Xaroth|Work>CCHyper: as my name suggests, so am i :)
07:53<@Alberth>not sure if there is one, and/or he is still around
07:53<randomname>blathijs: I'm using the .deb file from right now, but it's not the easiest way I guess :) I'm just checking my package sources

07:53<openbu>I'm available all the time.:)
07:54<CCHyper>mkay, basicly, what is the legal stand point of OpenTTD. As far as i know, its a 1:1 clone of the assembly?
07:54<blathijs>randomname: It's the easiest way to always have the latest version, I guess (since those packages are automatically built on a release, all repositories need some manual work)
07:56<@Alberth>doing openrct2? :)
07:56<@Alberth>well, your guess is as good as mine, I think
07:58<CCHyper>Alberth: I can't mention the name, but its a well known franchise. the project has been going for 5+ years behind doors and I need to understand what legal issues similar projects have encountered
08:00-!-tokai|noir [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:00-!-Nathan1852__ [] has joined #openttd
08:00<__ln__>obviously OpenTTD is in the legally gray area, but has afaik avoided issues because the copyright holder isn't actively pursuing their rights.
08:01<openbu>I'm doing open capitalismlab,based upon openTTD....:)
08:01<__ln__>not even gray, some parts are definitely copyright violations
08:01<CCHyper>what parts in specific?
08:01<TrueBrain>they are? *makes notes, this might be important*
08:01<blathijs>CCHyper: AFAIK the origins of OpenTTD are a bit shady. The original creator (ludde) has left the project long ago, but I believe some kind of disassembling/reimplementation has happened.
08:02<blathijs>CCHyper: However, we've attempted to get permission to use the artwork, but nobody really knows who owns the rights
08:02<blathijs>CCHyper: So in practice, no actual legal *issues* have been encountered AFAIK
08:02<CCHyper>TrueBrain: ...not the OpenDUNE guy are you?
08:02<TrueBrain>*hides behind a rock or something*
08:02<CCHyper>no f* way, long time no see!
08:03<blathijs>CCHyper: I was just about to suggest OpenDUNE, since I think they've actually started out from assembly and slowly replaced all of that by C AFAIK
08:03<Xaroth|Work>CCHyper: so you remember him, but not me? pffffffffff
08:03<Xaroth|Work>i feel insulted
08:03*Xaroth|Work trods off
08:03-!-smoke_fumus [~smoke_fum@] has joined #openttd
08:03<CCHyper>it rungs a bell
08:03<Xaroth|Work>TrueBrain has always been a bell-boy, yes
08:04<CCHyper>TrueBrain: dont remember me?
08:04<TrueBrain>sorry, which channel was this again?
08:04<@Alberth>#open<something> ? :)
08:04<CCHyper>OpenDUNE forums, along with Nyerguds. no?
08:05<Xaroth|Work>CCHyper: his brain is worse than a sieve
08:05<TrueBrain>which brain?
08:05<@Alberth>perhaps the true one?
08:05<CCHyper>one between the legs?
08:05<Xaroth|Work>that one's too small to be of any use
08:05*Xaroth|Work runs for the hills
08:05<TrueBrain>awesome, my brain can grow and shrink in minutes
08:06<TrueBrain>*well, this conversation took a turn for the worst*
08:06<Xaroth|Work>oh please
08:06<Xaroth|Work>it was destined to fail anyhow
08:06<TrueBrain>I am sorry CCHyper, I am in no mood to have a normal conversation with :P
08:07<Xaroth|Work>Alberth: you going to take that shot for open goal or shall I?
08:07<CCHyper>well this is quite important, can i drop you a PM?
08:08<@Alberth>be my guest :)
08:08<TrueBrain>not much I can be of any help regarding legal stuff
08:08<CCHyper>what was the satus with OpenDUNE?
08:08<TrueBrain>I guess you can just better ask what you want to ask here, in the hope someone can answer
08:08<TrueBrain>for OpenDUNE I did my atmost to contact the legal owner of Dune2, asking permission for the work
08:09<TrueBrain>as that person turned out to be unfindable (all legal channels ended up with: we do not hold the legal right blablabla)
08:09<TrueBrain>it is grey
08:09<TrueBrain>I always said: when ever someone makes the claim we are not allowed to do it, we pull down the code immediatly
08:09<TrueBrain>it is that simple
08:09<TrueBrain>as no profit is gained in any way what-so-ever, I doubt someone will mind or give a fuzz about a game from 1995
08:09<TrueBrain>but it is possible
08:10<TrueBrain>legally, I have the proof I did my atmost to get permission, so legally I cannot be held financial resposible; I just would have to pull the project down
08:10<TrueBrain>(which of course is no issue)
08:10<@Alberth>keeping a safe distance from the official title is important imho
08:10<TrueBrain>Alberth: that, and not hiding the nature of the project
08:11<randomname>official title is this distance safe enough?
08:11<TrueBrain>no, 2 spaces more
08:11<randomname>damn it
08:12<@Alberth>you may want to check the license of the game too, some explicitly forbid reverse engineering
08:12<TrueBrain>some? Not all? :D
08:12<TrueBrain>most country laws even disallow it these days :)
08:12<Xaroth|Work>and in most cases, you'll first get a C&D
08:12<CCHyper>well OpenRA has not had such iirc
08:15<TrueBrain>mainly, from what I have noticed, companies only start to care if you are eating away from their profit (and they are right at minding at that point)
08:16<CCHyper>yea, this is true and i understand it
08:16<CCHyper>and becuase of that, i dont want any link with people making donations if we go public
08:17<CCHyper>people suggested it, but i have been agaisnt it
08:17<TrueBrain>and I guess it is important to remember you can never reach the state: legal, when a game is reversed engineered; at best it stays: grey
08:17<TrueBrain>(or of course the legal owner says it is legal :P)
08:18<Xaroth|Work>but no legal owner in their right mind would ever do that :P
08:18<TrueBrain>it is in their best interest to keep it grey, yes :)
08:18<TrueBrain>or they most really loooovvveeeee you :)
08:18<CCHyper>are there cases where games companies have completly chewed up a project?
08:19<CCHyper>what companies?
08:19<@Alberth>it's easy, just threaten with a lawyer, and you're done, basically
08:20-!-randomname [] has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
08:21<Eddi|zuHause><Alberth> you may want to check the license of the game too, some explicitly forbid reverse engineering <-- german copyright says such license terms are void
08:21-!-randomname [] has joined #openttd
08:21<@Alberth>not everybody lives in gernmany, you know ;)
08:22<CCHyper>so im safe if i move to germany?
08:23<TrueBrain>kinda the oposite :P
08:23<Eddi|zuHause>probably not :p
08:23<TrueBrain>EU law disallows reverse enginering outside of fair-use
08:24<TrueBrain>I am sure Germany topped that, and made it even worse :)
08:24<Eddi|zuHause>germany doesn't deal in "fair use". basically, german law knows two kinds of reverse engineering
08:24<randomname>but isn't a project like this fair-use?
08:25<Xaroth|Work>not really
08:25<TrueBrain>in EU, you can reverse engineer, say, a library, to understand how it communicates, and implement your own
08:25<Eddi|zuHause>the first kind is non-invasive (running the program and prodding it from all sides you could as a normal user), whose results are freely usable
08:25<TrueBrain>you cannot distribute the reversed engineered code of such library ;)
08:25<Eddi|zuHause>and invasive (decompiling/disassembling), whose results you can only use for "bug fixes", and not use to release a similar product
08:26<TrueBrain>US law is similar btw
08:26<Eddi|zuHause>that latter kind you are free to distribute to anyone who has a license for the original program
08:27<CCHyper>what about the open Theme Hospital project, anyone eknow aobut that?
08:27<randomname>wow, that's worse than expected (for me)...
08:27<@Alberth>corsix-th rewrites from scratch
08:27<Xaroth|Work>that's a reimplementation, not a reverse engineering project
08:28-!-supermop [] has joined #openttd
08:28<Xaroth|Work>however, they are still in the same grey area for using the original graphics/sounds/data
08:28<randomname>openttd was (partly) reverse engineered?
08:28<@Alberth>they don't distribute the graphics/etc, people have to buy their own copy
08:28<@Alberth>which is just a few dollar
08:29<Eddi|zuHause>randomname: we don't really know what ludde did. he claimed whatever he did was covered by swedish copyright law at the time. any of us rely on the GPL for legality of the project after that
08:30<randomname>Eddi|zuHause: and nobody ever came to sue you?
08:30<TrueBrain>sweden was one of the last countries which disallowed reverse engineering (outside of the fiar use)
08:30<Eddi|zuHause>randomname: no, otherwise we'd probably be gone
08:31<randomname>i didn't imagine it's such a legal grey area to rewrite such an old game
08:32<TrueBrain>isnt it common sense?
08:32<TrueBrain>someone made something, worked hard for it, tried to sell it
08:32<@Alberth>copyright expiration takes a long time :)
08:33<TrueBrain>I guess the term "old game" is at issue here :P
08:33<TrueBrain>lately we have seen a lot of 8bit games doing very well on stuff like Steam
08:33<TrueBrain>"old" became a relative term :)
08:33<blathijs>Copyright experation terms were made with books in mind, not games :-)
08:33<Xaroth|Work>author's life + 70 years is going to suck quite a bit, yeah
08:33<randomname>if i was the owner of transport tycoon, who doesnt sell any copies today (i guess) i wouldn't mind
08:33<TrueBrain>not minding doesn't make it legal :)
08:33<Eddi|zuHause>blathijs: no, copyright expiration terms were made with disney movies in mind
08:34<__ln__>and not selling any copies right now doesn't mean not selling any copies in the future.
08:34<randomname>TrueBrain: I would officially tell you I don't mind
08:34<@Alberth>randomname: you would, as the franchise becomes worthless if you allow it
08:34<Eddi|zuHause>before disney, it was something like "release date + 20 years"
08:34<Xaroth|Work>randomname: On 15 July 2013, Chris Sawyer's 31X Ltd and Origin8 Technologies announced that they were working on a mobile version of Transport Tycoon.
08:34<TrueBrain>randomname: I think your lawyer would advise against it :)
08:34<__ln__>8-bit NES games are sold today in Wii store
08:34<__ln__>8-bit old games from the 80s
08:34<@Alberth>aka retro gaming :)
08:35<TrueBrain>and of course it is something to be proud at, as writing of a game, that 20 years later, 131 people in an IRC channel are still keeping the game alive
08:35<randomname>well, I guess my world view on copyright is still too simple (and too naive) :D
08:35<TrueBrain>I mean .. you can't do it much better than that in my opinion :)
08:36<TrueBrain>but ... law and personal feelings are 2 worlds apart :)
08:36<randomname>yeah, but if they would have sued you, prbably 0 ppl would mind today

08:37<@Alberth>some would, but not much you can do
08:37<@Alberth>unless you have some $$ at the bank with lots of zeroes
08:37<randomname>like 0000000000$ ?
08:37<Xaroth|Work>minding and protecting your intellectual property are two different things, randomname
08:37<blathijs>Eddi|zuHause: Really? Never knew that :-)
08:38<randomname>Xaroth_: yeah, sad, but true
08:38<CCHyper>this is interesting, so as a collective of minds, how do you think i should proceed?
08:39<Eddi|zuHause>blathijs: the irony of the situation is that disney built his empire on works where copyright was expired, and they now deny this to artists around the world
08:39<TrueBrain>wire me 1,000,000 EUR, of course
08:39<TrueBrain>but that is unrelated to this conversation
08:40<randomname> copytights of games expire 70 years after the author's death? so maybe 100+ years after release
08:41<randomname>i wonder if it will be possible to even play the games after such a long time
08:41<Eddi|zuHause>randomname: most computer program authors are quite young, so 100 years is probably not enough
08:41<randomname>mouse? keyboard? lolwat
08:42<TrueBrain>randomname: [14:33] <blathijs> Copyright experation terms were made with books in mind, not games :-)
08:42<@Alberth>playability is not needed for copyright
08:43<randomname>Eddi|zuHause: do you know why they changed it from 20 years to 70 years after death?
08:44<Eddi|zuHause>randomname: basically, every time copyright was about to run out they launched a campaign "we need to earn money or the creative industry dies", and copyright was extended
08:45<randomname>Eddi|zuHause: and maybe some of this money went into some politician's pocket
08:45-!-Pokka [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
08:45<Eddi|zuHause>quite a lot of it, i assume.

08:50<Xaroth|Work>< Eddi|zuHause> even a completely direct democracy has people in key positions that influence a lot of people << that also has a bit to do with the fact that most people are idiots :P
08:50<TrueBrain>he, who are you calling an idiot?!
08:50<Xaroth|Work>that dude behind you
08:51<Eddi|zuHause>sure. but there's no way to change that. the 80-20 rule applies independent from the average education level

09:02<Eddi|zuHause>randomname: the vehicles are usually named after people involved with the original transport tycoon development/testing
09:03<Eddi|zuHause>in the first version, they had real names, but it was changed later for some reason
09:04<blathijs>Trademark issues? ;-)

09:39<@planetmaker>:D :)
09:39<@planetmaker>he'll come chase you on a wave of beer ;)
09:40<@Alberth>don't think he'll like Heineken much :)
09:40<@planetmaker>it has to carry him from CZ to NL. So it'll likely be Pilzen beer or such ;)

11:12<@planetmaker>pilzener is from CZ ;)
11:14<Eddi|zuHause>czech budweiser and american budweiser don't even play in the same league :p
11:14<__ln__>by a strange coincidence, there's a city called Pilsen in cz

11:15<supermop>i don't think that is a coincidence
11:15<supermop>Eddi|zuHause: i actually do not care for budvar
11:15<@planetmaker>I don't think __ln__ didn't use irony
11:15<__ln__>well me neither, as i've visited it and the beer museum there.
11:15<supermop>also as bad as budweiser is, it is much much better than bud light

11:16<supermop>you are missing out eddi, I will shi you some
11:17<Eddi|zuHause>good beers are either local or from cz.
11:17<supermop>such a german

11:18<supermop>i'll ship you some good ales, or take you on a tour if you ever visit nyc
11:19<supermop>offer stands for any of you germans here
11:19<supermop>or the czechs

11:20<supermop>ok ill bring some in my luggage next time im in germany
11:21<Eddi|zuHause>last time i was in NYC, i wasn't old enough to drink (by american standards), and beer was crazy expensive
11:22<supermop>cheaper than in aus
11:22<Eddi|zuHause>like you got one bottle for the price that a whole crate costs here
11:23<supermop>not going to convince Eddi|zuHause i guess
11:23<supermop>how about planetmaker ? you want to come try american craft ales?
11:24<Eddi|zuHause>there is no real point in "convincing" anybody :p
11:24<supermop>or any of the niederlanders?
11:25<supermop>not sure when we will next be in germany actually
11:25<supermop>may be a few years off

12:43<Merlione>hello, I have a problem, and I wonder if someone can help me
12:43<@Alberth>ask a question and find out
12:44<Merlione>I'm trying to turn on the autoreplace option, to autoreplace my vehicles
12:44<Merlione>however, it doesn't show up in the settings list, not on expert, or advanced
12:44<Merlione>my OpenTTD version is 1.5.1
12:44<@Alberth>sounds correct :)
12:44<Merlione>I don't have anything installed
12:45<@Alberth>'trains' from the menu bar
12:45<@Alberth>with all the trains that you have
12:45<@Alberth>at the bottom right is a drop-down -> replace vehicles
12:45-!-roidal_ [] has joined #openttd
12:45<Merlione>yeah, but i want to autoreplace old ones as well
12:45<Merlione>it doesn't do that
12:46<@Alberth>so what is autoreplace for you?
12:46<Merlione>just replaces with a newer vehicle type if available
12:46<Merlione>well, replacing a vehicle that is old with the same model?
12:46<@Alberth>yes that's the dropdown
12:46<@Alberth>that's autorenew
12:47<@Alberth>different model -> replace, same model -> renew
12:47<@Alberth>latter is in the settings
12:47<Merlione>as i explained, the setting doesn't show up
12:47<Merlione>ingame, when I manually set it to true in the .cfg file, it just turns back to false
12:48<@Alberth>you were talking replace then, which means something else :) let me check
12:48<Merlione>yeah sorry Im new to this game ^^
12:48<Merlione>and I have set the settings to advanced or expert, and it still doesn't show
12:49<@Alberth>type "renew" in the search box
12:49<Merlione>aaqah thanks!
12:50<Merlione>I thought it would be at vehicles.....
12:50<@Alberth>with replace, it won't find anything, as that's not in the settings (due to hysteric reasons)
12:50<@Alberth>yeah, we have lots of history :)
12:51<@Alberth>feel free to submit a patch with an improvement
12:51<Merlione>thats what a wiki told me, but probably that was a different version?
12:51-!-roidal [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:51<@Alberth>it didn't move for a long time
12:52<@Alberth>what page was that?
12:53<@Alberth>also, maybe you looked for "replace" there as well instead of "renew" ?
12:53<@Alberth>in that case, you'd be send in the wrong direction, just like happened here
12:54<@Alberth>oh, a different group
12:55<@Alberth>yes, stuff moved a bit, wiki needs updating
12:55<Merlione>hehe,w ell, you, sir, saved my company from a small disaster ;)
12:56<@Alberth>ok, bill is in the mail, your company can spare a few dimes right? :)
12:56<@Alberth>you're welcome :)
