02:34<supermop>yo andy
02:59<V453000>o/ hoomanz
03:00<andythenorth>also V453000
03:01<andythenorth>is it done yet?
03:01<V453000>no starting a new project
03:02<andythenorth>brix -> pause
03:02<V453000>just for a little while :)
03:03<andythenorth>there is a correct number of projects to have
03:03<andythenorth>and it’s > 1
03:03<V453000>just 3 people care about it on the forums anyway
03:03<andythenorth>nobody cares about my sets :(
03:03<andythenorth>only me
03:03<V453000>The Community does not demand it
03:03<andythenorth>The Community is never wrong
03:03<V453000>nah I just got kind of stuck when making new maglev ... and I have some groundbreakingly superb ideas for a train set
03:03<V453000>you will ove it
03:04<V453000>I also almost have the maglev actually done, so might as well finish that
03:05<andythenorth>stop talking, start making my train set
03:05<andythenorth>I wish you’d render me some slighty-realisms ships also
03:05<andythenorth>and slightly-chibi
03:05<andythenorth>with the right length for broken stupid TTD lengths
03:05<andythenorth>then I could paint them with pixels
03:06<V453000>this train stuff will be 4/8 super chibi
03:06<V453000>I dare say it will be so awesome, it will make andythenorth play the game
03:07<andythenorth>I am playing the game :P
03:07<V453000>oh my :D
03:07<V453000>current state of maglev
03:08<V453000>only need to rework the ground of the tracks
03:08<V453000>the middle rail should be done
03:08<V453000>idea in junctions is that the white "track duct" will be visible from the beginning, and the blue part is the overlay ... that way, you just turn the tracks on - so they light up, you don't build new ones
03:09<V453000>is meant to be a very electric track :) also, maglev trains can now hug the rail
03:09<V453000>like those
03:09<andythenorth>yair that looks better idea than original maglev
03:10<V453000>yeah, concrete slabs are boring as fuck
03:10<V453000>also look HORRIBLE in junctions
03:10<andythenorth>most horribilest thing ever
03:10<V453000>while junctions are the biggest advantage of this
03:10<andythenorth>what will you do for PBS overlay?
03:11<andythenorth>more electricity?
03:11<V453000>yeah that is an issue, it will make the electrical part get grey
03:11<V453000>but can't do much with that, players can disable the reserved tracks at most
03:11<andythenorth>ask for a patch
03:11<andythenorth> brighter overlays
03:11<andythenorth>not darker
03:11<V453000>hm, that would be awesome yes
03:11<andythenorth>seems obvious idea
03:12-!-efess [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
03:12<V453000>I did realize that but didn't conclude it with asking for a patch :P
03:12<V453000>will ask frog
03:14<V453000>back to modelling the best train set ever :P

05:07<andythenorth>Eddi|zuHause: so I’m removing most of the gaps from most FIRS industries
05:07<andythenorth>still bothering you?
05:08<Eddi|zuHause>i'm usually not bothered by things while they are not in my field of view :p
05:08<andythenorth>still worth me removing them?
05:08*andythenorth doing it anyway
05:08<andythenorth>did I mention that FIRS compiles *really* fast with pypy3? :P
05:09<Wolf01>I liked industries with gaps :(
05:10<Wolf01>put a flag to enable it
05:12<andythenorth>Wolf01: any particular ones you like?
05:12<andythenorth>I am leaving some, for....reasons
05:13<Wolf01>let me check
05:18<Wolf01>the farms, the rubber plantantion
05:18<Wolf01>the copper ore mines are boring and you can remove the gap
05:18<andythenorth>yeah the farms I am leaving
05:19<andythenorth>otherwise they block landscape
05:19<andythenorth>and the town industries I am leaving
05:21<andythenorth>dairy has to lose the gap
05:23<@Alberth>less unique identification at the mini map :)
05:25<andythenorth>I always use that flashing thing frosch added :)
05:25<@Alberth>that works too :)
05:26<V453000>flashing thing?
05:26<V453000>ah that
05:26<V453000>yeah is great
05:29<Wolf01>V did you see I found your bridge on an anime? :D
05:31<Eddi|zuHause>haha :p
05:32<V453000>but yeah it is strongly inspired with some bridge in brazil or where
05:33<V453000>k not so far . Arganzuela Footbridge (2010) – Madrid, Spain
05:35<@Alberth>warm country, close enough :)
05:37<Wolf01>calatrava bridges look nice, too bad they are good only in a virtual reality... too much maintenance and problems
05:37<Wolf01>he should do game graphics instead of real things
05:37<@Alberth>nah, VR is obviously still lacking some realism :p
05:41-!-Wormnest [] has joined #openttd
05:43-!-HerzogDeXtEr [] has joined #openttd
05:51<V453000>going in the right direction I belive from
05:53<Eddi|zuHause>at least it's not as terrible as the default/opengfx maglev
05:54<andythenorth>I like the weird corrugations
05:54<andythenorth>I’m not sure they’re good
05:54<andythenorth>but I like them
05:54<V453000>I think if I add some more details to them, they will be fine
05:54<V453000>in corners they look weird but almost anything does
05:55<andythenorth>it’s where they join the terrain in \ / that looks weird
05:55<V453000>more details/noise to distort the perfect shapes helps a ton there
05:55<andythenorth>like they’re floating
05:55<Wolf01>yes, it looks really better the new one, the one with the parallel steps was too weird in NS and WE directions
05:55<andythenorth>finish them in a straight edge?
05:55<V453000>yeah tha should probably finish with straight edge indeed
05:56<andythenorth>can roads cross maglev?
06:00<andythenorth>FIRS forests
06:00<andythenorth>forests are unsatisfactory
06:01<andythenorth>they should really have fields, like farms
06:01<andythenorth>or something
06:01<andythenorth>or be spread over a wider area
06:02<andythenorth>I considered the lumber mill option, but planting trees manually is very boring
06:03<andythenorth>someone made a grf that spreads forests out much wider, with tracks to cutting areas?
06:05<@Alberth>the pax fork of firs by mczapkie?
06:06<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: so unless you're going to implement NewGRF fields in the near future, don't worry about it.
06:07<@Alberth>yeah, forests provide sufficient challenge at their size :)
06:08<andythenorth>possibly I need to animate them cutting wood
06:08<andythenorth>that might help
06:09<@Alberth>animation is always nice :)
06:12<Eddi|zuHause>i don't know what the problem is. the original growth animation seems fine to me
06:15<andythenorth>it’s not re-implemented in FIRS
06:16<@Alberth>mostly, it looks fine rather than being fine :p
06:17<@Alberth>it abuses construction stages :p
06:18<andythenorth>it does? o_O
06:18<andythenorth>how interesting
06:19-!-M-E [] has joined #openttd
06:19*andythenorth leaves the gap in junk yard
06:19<andythenorth>some annoyances are by design
06:25<Eddi|zuHause>i have nothing against gaps, but they were kinda getting out of hand
06:26<Eddi|zuHause>also, when you have gaps, you need more variations in layout
06:27<Eddi|zuHause>i mean like 10 or more
06:27<Eddi|zuHause>not just 3
06:32<andythenorth>I have eliminated most of them now
06:32<andythenorth>except for farm-type industries
06:33<andythenorth>for which newgrf fields would be a better solution :P
06:33<andythenorth>but eh, some things will never be done :)
06:53-!-M-E [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:16<andythenorth> :(
07:22<andythenorth>do rivers know their spring point?
07:23*andythenorth wonders about enforcing that there must be always at least one edge between spring node and some endpoint
07:23<andythenorth>so that rivers could be re-routed, but not cut

07:28<V453000>btw does a base set HAVE to supply x2 sprites?
07:28<andythenorth>bah, translators need to get busy
07:28<andythenorth>FIRS compile is full of yellow “translation outdated” warnings
07:28<andythenorth>no use to me :P
07:29<@Alberth>add a suppression flag?
07:30<andythenorth>I could use —quiet
07:30<andythenorth>but some of the warnings are useful
07:30<andythenorth>sounds like lang files would be ignored?
07:30<@Alberth>something like that
07:31-!-Supercheese [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:31<Wolf01>argoneus, do you know if monsters in diablo 3 have specific resistances?
07:31<Eddi|zuHause>also, something like this would go in your makefile.local
07:31-!-Myhorta [] has joined #openttd
07:31<V453000>andythenorth: straight edges help shitloads
07:32<andythenorth>rather than Makefile?
07:32<andythenorth>ok a local option
07:32<andythenorth>I see why
07:32-!-Supercheese [] has joined #openttd
07:32<andythenorth>V453000: that’s pretty winning
07:32<andythenorth>I’d say done
07:32<argoneus>Wolf01: yeah
07:32<andythenorth>it’s interesting that you have a greige landscape
07:32<V453000>yeah, this is done
07:32<argoneus>they have different elemental resistances
07:33<V453000>now I just need to get the junctions/slopes/stuff done
07:33<V453000>but getting it to look like this was the hardest part
07:33<V453000>junctions will be easy
07:33<V453000>grey landscape is pretty nice tbh
07:33<V453000>you immediately see where stuff is
07:33<andythenorth>I used greige in UI design
07:33<V453000>very good for orientation
07:33<Wolf01>the wiki doesn't say anything, and I found that I do more damage to ice resistant (I suppose) monsters with ice
07:33<andythenorth>white is too stark
07:33<@Alberth>amazing, such a simple change having such an impact
07:33<andythenorth>grey is boring
07:34<andythenorth>greige = warm grey, strictly it’s the name for the colour of raw silk
07:34<andythenorth>or linen
07:34<V453000>ooh I also need to make tunnels, road crossings, and place the tracks onto bridges :P
07:35<V453000>not so done :D
07:35<V453000>let's get to it
07:36<andythenorth>V453000: ^ maybe it’s a bit too tasteful :)
07:36<andythenorth>is V453000 tasteful? :P
07:36<V453000>time to maglev it up

11:27-!-Sirenia [] has joined #openttd
11:34<V453000>frosch123: is it possible to get a patch which would allow defining custom reserved-track overlay sprites? aka not just greyed out overlay, but something colourful
11:34-!-roidal_ [] has joined #openttd
11:35<Eddi|zuHause>V453000: like introduce an action5?
11:35<frosch123>in theory yes, but is it any good?
11:35<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: we have railtypes?
11:35<V453000>I have no clue what does action5 mean Eddi
11:35<frosch123>V453000: not relevant since 2010
11:35<Eddi|zuHause>V453000: action5 is the standard method to extend the base set
11:36-!-Sirenia [] has quit [Max SendQ exceeded]
11:36<Eddi|zuHause>unless it's actionA, i always mix those up...
11:37<Eddi|zuHause>anyway, i don't really know how new railtypes work
11:37-!-Sirenia [] has joined #openttd
11:37<V453000>anyway, I think custom overlay sprites would make a lot of sense for anything really
11:37<V453000>gray is quite ugly
11:38<V453000>and anything like maglev powered tracks with visual feedback when the electricity turns on at the segments where trains is, would be pretty awesome
11:38<frosch123>anyway, if it would be done, it would be: new item in the graphics section (for example "path_overlay"), if defined it is drawn directly on top of everything; if not defined the normal track_overlay is drawn in greyscale
11:38<Eddi|zuHause>but, do you want to have options for a different recolour, or only for a completely different sprite?
11:38<V453000>yeah exactly frosch123 , that would work perfectly
11:38<Eddi|zuHause>frosch123: would that need a callback flag?
11:38<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: recolour is pretty useless for 32bpp :p
11:38<V453000>different sprite Eddi
11:39<V453000>yeah, that too
11:39<Mazur>Weirdest thing: got a new PC, hook up a keyboard, a wireless mouse, and a screen, power on, nothing happens.
11:39<Eddi|zuHause>i imagine callbacks for railtype are rather time critical
11:39<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: i believe the other optional parts have no flag either
11:39<frosch123>no, they are not time critical, they only run for visible stuff
11:40<frosch123>and only once per tile redrawn
11:40<Eddi|zuHause>then why were people so resistant to variables for railtypes?
11:40<Mazur>Could it be because I should hook up hte screen to the other GPU? Neither is onboard.
11:40*Mazur is for onc utterly baffled.
11:41<Eddi|zuHause>Mazur: using wrong output connector would explain black screen...
11:41-!-roidal [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
11:41<Eddi|zuHause>Mazur: some BIOS have a detection routine to check which output is connected
11:41<Taede>forgetting to switch on the switch at the back of the power supply helps too
11:42<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: that depends on the variable :) i was against "nearest town" unless it is cached, i am not against nearby tile info
11:42<Eddi|zuHause>Mazur: do fans or hard disks spin up? does it beep?
11:42<Mazur>Taede: second thing I checked, after the power cablee connetion.
11:42<Mazur>Neither, Eddi.
11:42<Mazur>So had to be power thing, RIGHT?
11:43<Eddi|zuHause>have you checked whether PSU is switched to 110V or 230V?
11:43<Mazur>No, biut hte shop has.
11:43<Mazur>THey've had it running.
11:43<Eddi|zuHause>Mazur: yes, that would point to a power problem

11:44-!-mode/#openttd [+v tokai|noir] by ChanServ
11:44<Mazur>Well, under desk cables are a mess, not even sure what connects what, so I should just clean them out and reuse one by one.
11:44<Eddi|zuHause>once upon a time mainboards had a "lock" that had to be bridged by a jumper
11:44<Mazur>Can't be it, shop has had it running.
11:45<Eddi|zuHause>well, it could also be hooked up to an actual lock
11:45<Mazur>They even played Warcraft for a bit to test.
11:45<Eddi|zuHause>but yes, i'd double check the power cable

11:47<Mazur>Thanks for the amoral support. As I'm getting older I get less assured of my knowledge.
11:49<frosch123>andythenorth: extractive, organic and ports have different boost requirements... should i add separate parameters for the three types?
11:49-!-Sirenia [] has joined #openttd
11:50-!-tokai [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:05<V453000>yay, logo guy never to be seen on tt-forums again
12:05<V453000>shame he was working on 32bpp too
12:06<frosch123>we continued a bit via pm :)
12:07<frosch123>just like you and andy usually discuss stuff here
12:07<Eddi|zuHause>did i miss some drama?
12:09<frosch123>it's just the usual 1st level support thing
12:10<V453000>yeah I am exchanging PMs with him all the time
12:12<V453000>honestly, if I didn't have as much fun and mainly work-useful experience from making NewGRFs, I would stop this instance.
12:12<Eddi|zuHause><frosch123> Eddi|zuHause: recolour is pretty useless for 32bpp :p <-- so are we just going to call recolouring a deprecated feature and all future newgrf stuff will just ignore it exists?
12:14<frosch123>Eddi|zuHause: even considering 8bpp, recolouring is pretty useless when only using *one* recolouring
12:14<frosch123>it makes sense for cc with 16 recolouring variants
12:14<frosch123>but for reserved/not reserved it is useless in any case
12:15-!-Sirenia [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
12:16<Eddi|zuHause>frosch123: anyway, the proposed railtype callback will not help if you're making a base set
12:16<frosch123>that is true
12:17<frosch123>so, yes, in brix context there is no solution
12:17<frosch123>add adding a separate solution just for basesets is definitely not worth it
12:19<frosch123>we should rather look into options to make railtypes via action 3 baseset useable
12:20<frosch123>(i.e. no property changes, only graphics, and automatically disabled when other grfs define railtypes)
12:20<Eddi|zuHause>i can't imagine how that would work
12:20<V453000>forum cripple fight, round 1 go XD
12:20<Eddi|zuHause>how do you distinguish "good" and "bad" action3 when scanning for static newgrfs?
12:21<frosch123>the scanning is not exact anyway
12:21<frosch123>it would rather be, do not call this callback for static grfs
12:22<V453000>frosch123: ignore my request, I am going to get myself banned from the forums and top developing stuff anyway within the next hour most likely :D :P
12:22<V453000>but for Other Authors, it would be nice to have it :P
12:23-!-Sirenia [] has joined #openttd
12:23<Eddi|zuHause>frosch123: so then static newgrfs could contain anything, but the semantics has more safeguards?

12:26<frosch123>[18:25] <DorpsGek> You've given me 12 commands within the last minute; I'm now ignoring you for 5 minutes. <- fu, now i have find another calculator
12:26<Eddi|zuHause>i never had that...
12:26*frosch123 starts python
12:26<andythenorth>start the faster one
12:26<Eddi|zuHause>echo blah | bc
12:27<Eddi|zuHause>or wolfram alpha
12:27<andythenorth>frosch123: internally there are parameters for the different classes of industry; externally, I think it’s just one parameter
12:27<frosch123>what's the "power" operator in python?
12:27<frosch123>** or ^ or something else?
12:27<Eddi|zuHause>i don't think there's a operator
12:28<frosch123>** forks
12:28<andythenorth>anybody who needs to have separate control over farms, mines, ports supply boost can (1) accept their need is not met (2) patch
12:28<frosch123>** works
12:28*andythenorth was afk
12:28<frosch123>^ seems to be xor
12:28<Eddi|zuHause>^ is usually XOR
12:29<Eddi|zuHause>i used to be in a channel which had a matlab bot

12:35<V453000>3/6 junctions done :>
12:37<@Alberth>hmm, expected 50% greyed out junctions, but it was very different :)
12:38<@Alberth>or turned it off and on again?
12:38<V453000>well yeah gray is an option
12:38<V453000>but the blue is so dark that it should be just fine
12:38<@Alberth>tracks look splendid with the circuits
12:39<@Alberth>makes no sense wrt realism, but it adds a lot
12:39<@Alberth>makes the track much more fun to look at
12:40<Eddi|zuHause>V453000: imho the not-placed tracks should have no circuits
12:40<V453000>that is an option as well, yes Eddi
12:41<V453000>though I prefer them to be barely visible for now
12:41<Eddi|zuHause>it should be easily visible at a glance where tracks are and where not. the default maglev are terrible at that
12:41-!-Sirenia_ [] has quit [Max SendQ exceeded]
12:42<andythenorth>V453000: keep the circuit etch shape, just knock it to grey
12:42<andythenorth>otherwise you’ll have no texture
12:42<V453000>well this is very visible Eddi, isn't it
12:42<Eddi|zuHause>the vertical tracks have an offset problem
12:42<V453000>yes andy
12:42<andythenorth>V453000: otherwise it’s done, done done
12:42<V453000>I don't see any
12:43<V453000>andythenorth: making one junction takes almost an hour, saying done is .. :P
12:43<V453000>+ tunnels bridges crossings, ...
12:43<Eddi|zuHause>the gap to the left barrier switches between 1px and 2px
12:43<andythenorth>well it’s conceptually done done done
12:43<Eddi|zuHause>makes the line look wobbly
12:43<V453000>that is possible Eddi, yes
12:43<andythenorth>finally, somebody solved maglev
12:43<andythenorth>can you do an 8bpp classic TTD version of this? :P
12:43<andythenorth>I want maglev in Iron Horse, but default track is so…
12:44<andythenorth>[no need to say the words]
12:44<V453000>can, would be hard, will, not worth the effort
12:45<Eddi|zuHause>V453000: yes, it's visible that there are no tracks, if you concentrate on it. but if you glance at the whole screen, and don't have it in focus, it could be easier if there were no barriers and no circuits
12:46<V453000>barriers have to be there, that is the whole reason why the junctions are working
12:46<V453000>because the overlays are not 3D
12:46<V453000>well they are, but planar ... is what I mean
12:46<Eddi|zuHause>yes, i think no-barriers need a "whole crossing" overlay
12:46<V453000>yes which is a feature I don't currently have :P
12:47<V453000>hence this solution
12:47-!-founder_ is now known as openbu
12:47<V453000>and bright blue looks clear enough to me to demonstrate where tracks are
12:47<V453000>far better than original/ogfx/zbase maglev for sure
12:47<Eddi|zuHause>yes. certainly
12:47<Eddi|zuHause>i'm just saying it's not optimal in my eyes
12:48<V453000>I might try to toy with the colour of the wires but that is all
12:48<Mazur>andythenorth: several times.
12:48<andythenorth>swapped leads, checked fuses?
12:49<V453000>not exactly :P
12:49<V453000>I was also thinking green/red
12:49<V453000>but 2nd colour is rather disturbing and green does not look so electric
12:49<andythenorth>don’t mix colours
12:49<andythenorth>I thought of red, but I made it in my head, looked bad
12:50<Mazur>Just now i unearthed ghte lead from behind my desk, pokugging it in along hte front, and the speakers bopped.

14:15<andythenorth>it’s a global constant, so quite trivial to parameterise

14:16-!-mode/#openttd [+o orudge] by ChanServ
14:17<V453000>parameters are good for something so wtf complex like FIRS
14:17<V453000>it is basically 6 newgrfs in one
14:18<V453000>especially if defaults just work
14:18<V453000>and the parameters are just extra stuff to fiddle with
14:20*andythenorth wonders if anyone ever sees them anyway
14:20<andythenorth>I don’t think I’d know about them if I didn’t make newgrfs
14:20<andythenorth>‘parameters’ sounds dangerous

15:08<frosch123>you have 3 registers which store the production from past 3 months
15:08<andythenorth>it’s a single global constant iirc
15:08*andythenorth checks

15:10<frosch123>i think 3 months is fine there
15:10<frosch123>does not need a parameter
15:10<andythenorth>works for me
15:10*andythenorth will delete the ‘todo'
15:10<andythenorth>much better

15:11<V453000>frosch123: [20:49] <@Mark> now just need a parameter to increase farm initial production
15:11<V453000>is a good point actually
15:11<andythenorth>will you play with SV, or something else, or no GS?

15:13<andythenorth>Temperate Basic is most appropriate for Iron Horse :)
15:13<frosch123>is hot country any good?
15:13<andythenorth>I played IAHC, and really like it
15:13<andythenorth>it’s better balanced ‘big’ economy than full FIRS
15:13<andythenorth>due to experience gained

15:13<andythenorth>but I need Busy Bee or I lose interest :)
15:14<andythenorth>if you get nightly Iron Horse, you get more cargo support, FYI

16:07<V453000>yes Eddi, that is what I am doing ... except I always forget to remove magic colours
16:07<Eddi|zuHause>if you want to convert the recolour mask as well, things get tricky
16:07<frosch123>i am at 150 m³ alcohol per month

17:07<Eddi|zuHause>andythenorth: at least if "it works" is no longer a requirement, you can do some pretty decent speed upgrades :p
17:07<andythenorth>silver lining
17:07<andythenorth>back to py32 then :(
17:07<Eddi|zuHause>like "lossy sort" :p
17:08<V453000>yeah :) I like the progress to b ... desaturated base of tracks and wires
17:08<V453000>still some details to fix here and there, but the main stuff is done
17:10<andythenorth>did you change some colours also?
17:10<andythenorth>definitely better with desaturated unused track
17:10<andythenorth>oh yeah base is less green
17:10<V453000>the only colours changed are the wrinkly ground to desaturated concrete, and desaturated wires
17:10<V453000>yeah less yellow/green
17:10<andythenorth>and gained contrast on the base
17:11<andythenorth>seriously good now
17:11<Eddi|zuHause>yes, that looks better
17:11<andythenorth>not good enough to get me off classic 8bpp TTD style
17:11<andythenorth>but close
17:11<V453000>that I understand ;)
17:11<Eddi|zuHause>now fix the alignment of the vertical tracks... it drives me nuts :p
17:11<V453000>yeah I will see what is going on there
17:11<V453000>ah nice :D
17:12<V453000>was just reasonless move of the thing
17:12<V453000>idk why

17:17<V453000>Eddi|zuHause: fixed :) thanks for noticing
17:18<V453000>if you want to be more nuts, I got some other bugs that you cannot unsee :P
17:18<frosch123>found a breakdown \o/
17:18<Eddi|zuHause>nah thanks, i'm fine :p
17:18<V453000>well, good night :)
17:24<Eddi|zuHause>somehow the flash and the html5 version of youtube ended up with slight differences in hotkeys

17:39<sim-al2>Hi guys, stupid question time: For basic NFO bytes, like in the train example on the newgrf specs wiki, how does D8 0E become 3800?
17:40<frosch123>@calc 0x0E << 8 | 0xD8
17:40<@DorpsGek>frosch123: Error: Something in there wasn't a valid number.
17:40<frosch123>@calc 0x0E * 2**8 | 0xD8
17:40<@DorpsGek>frosch123: Error: Something in there wasn't a valid number.
17:40<frosch123>@calc 0x0E * 2**8 + 0xD8
17:40<@DorpsGek>frosch123: 3800
17:41<Eddi|zuHause>0E is the high byte, D8 is the low byte. so you have 0*16^3+E*16^2+D*16+8
17:41<frosch123>anyway, better use "\w 3800"
17:43*andythenorth makes better chemical plant sprites
17:43<andythenorth>that aren’t just oil refinery and fertiliser plant combined :P
17:44<andythenorth>also bedtime
17:44-!-andythenorth [] has left #openttd []
17:45<sim-al2>Ok thanks, didn't realize that the bytes were "backwards" so to speak
17:45<Eddi|zuHause>yeah, it's a weird thing to wrap your head around initially
17:46<sim-al2>I think I'm doing pretty well, figured out how to decompile a grf and wading through the long lines of bytes looking for the power ones 0.o
17:46<frosch123>sim-al2: that's why you use escape sequences :) "D8 0E" = "\wx ED8" = "\w 3800"
17:48<+glx>would have been different if TTD wasn't written for a LE CPU
17:49<Eddi|zuHause>sim-al2: instead of battling with decompiled NFO, you could just write an add-on GRF with nml
17:50<sim-al2>I just want to increase the power a bit, writing a whole new thing seems a lot harder
