05:37<Eddi|zuHause>was that a question?
05:38<SpComb>it had a question mark at the end
05:39<__ln__>but no verb
06:44<vasatko>Hi, is tehre someone who can help me with instalation Cygwin on Windows? I try it from this tutorial: http://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/yeti/wiki/Cygwin but i end on 'setting up python', where pip install Pillow (or images) ends with exception.
06:44<Eddi|zuHause>what kind of exception?
06:45<vasatko> The headers or library files could not be found for jpeg, a required dependency when compiling Pillow from source.
06:46<Eddi|zuHause>"Under Libs section - libjpeg-devel, libjpeg8, zlib, zlib-devel, zlib0" <-- you possibly skipped this step?
06:47<vasatko>no 100% i install it! But can i check it somewhere (or add it now)?
06:48<Eddi|zuHause>are you running the pip command from within cygwin?
06:48<vasatko>yes
06:51<vasatko>in etc/setup i see libjpeg8.lst.gz but i cant find any file with name 'libjpeg8' in cygwin (sub)folder

06:54<andythenorth>I assume orudge knows that the SSL has expired on forums? :)
06:54<LordAro>again?
06:55<andythenorth>HSTS is preventing me from adding any exceptions
06:55<LordAro>didn't it do that a month ago?
06:55<andythenorth>is it on a rolling re-cert?
06:55<andythenorth>maybe the Let's Encrypt isn't automated correctly?
06:55<andythenorth>or it's not handling LE failures
06:56<LordAro>could well be
06:56<LordAro>took me several "months" to get it working when i first used it
06:57<__ln__>Let's Encrypt is sometimes painful to automate correctly.
06:59<andythenorth>coop has invalid cert too

11:23<LordAro>Samu: make it yourself
11:23<Samu>yeah, :(
11:24<Samu>well all I wanted was something like "pause game when a company reaches a value of £xxx"
11:32<Samu>teach me
11:36<LordAro>plenty of squirrel tutorials around
11:36<LordAro>stuff on the wiki as well
11:36<LordAro>forums was where i started
11:38<ST2>I started exploring couple existent GS's and reading the API (to know what each function do)
11:38<ST2>not that I got anywhere, most it's by trial and error xD
11:39<ST2>https://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=62163 -- maybe a good place to start :)
11:40<Samu>squirrel?
11:40<ST2>they love nuts :P
11:41<Samu>ok, i downloaded minimal gs gonna read some stuff there
11:41<Samu>and i hate reading

11:52<Samu>SELF_VERSION <- 1;
11:52<Samu>what the heck is <- ?
11:53<Samu>the code looks different than coding in visual studio :(
11:56<LordAro>funny that
11:57<LordAro>almost as if it's a different language
11:57<LordAro>although "<-" is pretty weird, i'll grant you
11:57<nielsm>"put 1 into SELF_VERSION"
11:58<nielsm>it's not unusual to see arrow-like symbols used in academics when presenting algorithms, in fact it's strange that assignment using an arrow-like symbol is so rare in programming languages
12:00-!-TheMask96 [martijn@pride.vhost.ne2000.nl] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:00<@Alberth>math doesn't have the notion of assigmments, so it needs a special symbol to denote it, or you must resort to a functional language
12:01<Samu>i think i'm gonna follow this first https://wiki.openttd.org/AI:Introduction
12:01<Samu>minimalGS seems confusing
12:01<@Alberth>sounds like a plan
12:01<@Alberth>a bit much boilerplate mostly, as the real functionality is almost zero

12:02<Samu>i wanted to make a GS though, hope it's similar
12:02<@Alberth>it is
12:03<@Alberth>in both cases you have to wait for events and catch+process them
12:03<@Alberth>set of calls to do something is a bit different
12:03<@Alberth>as GS has different / bigger powers

14:00<Samu> int some_integer = 2;
14:00<Samu>why doesn't it work
14:01<ST2>use: local some_integer = 2;
14:01<Samu>local is for ints?
14:01<Samu>confused
14:01<nielsm>local is used for local variables
14:01<LordAro>Samu: local is for anything
14:01<nielsm>in squirrel, variables don't have types, values have types, and variables hold values
14:02<nielsm>any variable can hold any type of data
14:02<LordAro>squirrel is dynamically typed, so variables aren't "tied" to a particular type

14:03<Wolf01>frosch123: bridges are burning
14:03<frosch123>hola
14:04<frosch123>raze them?
14:04<Wolf01>Yes, I was planning to remove tunnel/bridges from the game
14:06<Wolf01>I can't understand what rails are trying to put in m4 to make the RoadTypes funcitons to believe there's a road/tram on rail bridges
14:07<Wolf01>MakeBridgeHead puts 0 in M4
14:08<frosch123>since when do we have level crossings on bridges?
14:08<Wolf01>That's a good question
14:09<Samu>i need to crash a vehicle
14:09<Samu>because the guide says so
14:09<Wolf01>We need also updated docs, I can't find anything related to NRT landscape internals on the links I saved
14:14<Wolf01>Ok, I think I fixed it: m4 should be initialized to INVALID_ROADTYPES not 0... 0 is ROAD
14:14<Wolf01>We have broken maps
14:14<Wolf01>Time to savegame bump XD

15:15<andythenorth>loss of a feature IMHO
15:15<andythenorth>crossings on bridge is nice
15:16<Wolf01>Yup adds realism, who don't builds a bridge to level cross a rail bridge?
15:18<Wolf01>BTW, I'm totally sure it was possible to run road vehicles on rail bridges
15:22<andythenorth>feature
15:22<andythenorth>child #1 keeps asking when we will put trains in roads
15:23<andythenorth>child #1 is actually pretty close to typical forum user I think
15:23<andythenorth>also he is sitting analysing the behaviour of all AIs
15:23<Wolf01>Answer: when we'll decide to add more bytes to the map array
15:23<Wolf01>Also needs revising the state machine
15:25<Wolf01>I have a pony too, and you will hate me for it...
15:25<Wolf01>One way tram tracks, only draws the tram track on one side
15:26<Wolf01>But it should be independent from the road's one way, so another bit
15:26<Wolf01>*2 bits
15:31<andythenorth>one way tram tracks? o_O
15:32<Wolf01>Yes
15:32<andythenorth>intended use? o_O
15:32<Wolf01>Make trams only go in one direction
15:33<andythenorth>I'm neutral on that as a feature
15:33<andythenorth>it probably has a use somewhere
15:33<Wolf01>It could work best if tram and roads will be set in opposite one way directions
15:34<andythenorth>so road has one way arrow, tram has just one track?
15:34<Wolf01>Yes
15:34<andythenorth>has to be drive-side aware
15:48<Samu>AILog.Info("We have a crashed vehicle (" + v + ") (" + c + ") (" + r + ")");

15:49<Samu>local v = ec.GetVehicleID(); local c = ec.GetCrashSite(); local r = ec.GetCrashReason();
15:50<Samu>numbers!
15:50<Samu>the reason was because 1
15:50<Samu>:(
15:52<Samu>enum CrashReason { CRASH_TRAIN, CRASH_RV_LEVEL_CROSSING, CRASH_RV_UFO, CRASH_PLANE_LANDING, CRASH_AIRCRAFT_NO_AIRPORT, CRASH_FLOODED }
15:53<Samu>why does it write 1 and not CRASH_RV_LEVEL_CROSSING?
15:53<LordAro>because enums are numbers
15:53<LordAro>just hidden
15:53<Wolf01>Mark enum as flag
15:53<LordAro>they (almost always) start at 0
15:53<Wolf01>Or it works only on c#
15:53<LordAro>Wolf01: lol

16:50<Samu>0

17:14<ST2>Samu: with so many questions and so few reading, LordAro makes ~90 percent of the GS xD
17:14<supermop_work_>maybe town zones could be a bit differeny
17:15<supermop_work_>so you dont end up with a city with a 10 mile diameter CBD and then 3 blocks of suburbs at the edges
17:15<LordAro>ST2: i'm deliberately not giving any answers :p
17:16<ST2>that's ma boy ;)
17:16<LordAro>Samu: read the function definition a bit more closely
17:16<LordAro>it should become clearer
17:16<LordAro>ST2: lol
17:17<ST2>well, I look at many GS's and how functions were used and the API page
17:17<LordAro>that's basically how i wrote my AI, all those years ago
17:17<ST2>before trying to touch - and well, I didn't started on an easy place
17:18<ST2>my 1st try was with Aphid's CB GS, because wanted to put it on our servers, and our server controller needed to get info from there (we have goal servers)
17:18<supermop_work_>later
17:25<ST2>anyway, I already told Samu that studying other GS's - or even using them as base (some simple ones) and using GSCompany::GetQuarterlyCompanyValue
17:25<ST2>he would get a CV gamescript :)

17:26<ST2>or even better: https://nogo.openttd.org/api/
17:26<ST2>it can change
17:27<ST2>I appreciate all the work devs put on this, and I prefer to read and test that ask (example): I typed an A, what comes next?
17:28<ST2>if you hit a "brick" wall, ofc feel free to ask

18:22<LordAro>ST2: yeah, buster, or 9
18:22<LordAro>heh
18:22<ST2>:P
18:22<ST2>minors ^^
18:23<Lemons>in openttd download stable there is somthing saying Linux Debian Jessie (x86_64, 64bit)
18:24<LordAro>Lemons: that won't work on a rasppi
18:24<Lemons>oh
18:24<LordAro>rasppi's use ARM architecture
18:24<LordAro>Lemons: assuming you want to go down this road, some searching has turned up a program installed by default on Kano called "linux story"
18:25<LordAro>this should teach you some terminal/commandline basics
18:25<Lemons>yes
18:25<ST2>does this instructions would help? https://wiki.openttd.org/Compiling_on_(GNU/)Linux_and_*BSD#Manually
18:25<ST2>even on ARM?
18:25<LordAro>ST2: that'll do it, but given "words ---> 0.0 ---->" ....
18:26<ST2>and ofc, getting the sources, etc etc
18:26<Lemons>im basicly saying i dont realy understand much tech stuff...
18:27<LordAro>that's fine, everyone has to start from nothing at some point :)
18:27<ST2>welcome to the club ^^
18:27<LordAro>rasppi is generally an excellent place to start
18:28<Lemons>im looking for the linux story
18:30<ST2>to read later but, when getting sources, for 1.7.2, use: svn checkout svn://svn.openttd.org/tags/1.7.2
18:30<LordAro>ST2: nah, download from the website
18:30<ST2>other option too
18:30<LordAro>easier than teaching about VCSs :p
18:30<Lemons>any chance its called Terminal Quest?
18:31<LordAro>Lemons: that'll be it
18:31<Lemons>mk
18:31<Lemons>mk
18:31<Lemons>well i guess ill do that
18:31<Lemons>brb in probably 10 - 20 min
18:33<LordAro>i'll likely be asleep by then
18:34<ST2>I'll be awake, but probably my directions he'll install PH-VR :P
18:34<LordAro>ono

19:03<Samu>gui settings?
19:03<Samu>the AI chosen not to receive those news?
19:09<Flygon>Are town 'root' tiles attached to the z axis?
19:09<Flygon>Or the x and y one only?
19:12<Samu>wtf i found a bug
19:12<Samu>a zeppelin crashed on myai airport
19:13<Samu>and the aircraft could still land on it
19:13<LordAro>zeppelins are helicopters, aren't they?
19:13<LordAro>don't think they stop the runway from being usable
19:13<Samu>they're a disaster zepelin
19:13<LordAro>oh, those
19:14<Samu>disasters behave different for AIs?
19:14<LordAro>i'd be extremely surprised
19:20<Eddi|zuHause>Flygon: there is no z axis
19:21<Eddi|zuHause>Flygon: the town has an X/Y coordinate, the Z coordinate is read from that tile for the purpose of drawing the town name
19:25<Samu>case MP_RAILWAY: if (Company::IsHumanID(GetTileOwner(tile))
19:25<Samu>that is so lame
19:25<Samu>AI railways are not destroyed by ufo disasters
19:27<LordAro>Samu: there are a certain number of things like that, just because it's excessively difficult for AIs to detect (and fix) such things
19:28<Flygon>Eddi|zuHause: Thanks.
19:29<Flygon>The town 'name' didn't elevate when I raised its tile, that is all.
19:29<Flygon>Hence my confusion.
19:29<Eddi|zuHause>did you change all 4 corners of the tile?
19:30<Flygon>...
19:30<Flygon>Come to think of it, no.
19:30<Flygon>I only raised three corners .
19:32<Eddi|zuHause>so i just tried, the name doesn't move on terraforming
19:32<Eddi|zuHause>but if you then destroy a house, it moves when it draws the new town population
19:32<Flygon>Huh.
19:32<Flygon>Alright.
19:32<Flygon>Thanks. :3
19:32<Eddi|zuHause>so likely the height is cached somewhere
19:33<Samu>i got a zeppeliner crashing again, this time the aircraft could not land
19:34<Samu>wondering if the aircraft was at the airport the first time it happened
19:37<Samu>hmm nop
19:37<Samu>must be a very rare situation when the zeppelin crashes at the same time an aircraft is taking off
19:37<Samu>zeppelin sets the block
19:38<Samu>aircraft taking off sets it off
19:38<Samu>so when it comes to land again it will land even with zeppelin debris there, i think

21:05<supermop>Eddi|zuHause: whats an old timey german nomenclature for machine models
21:06<supermop>like 'type 24' or 'model B'
21:06<supermop>something that a german works might name a machine in the 1800s
21:08<Eddi|zuHause>what kind of machine?
21:08<supermop>in this case a steam dummy
21:08<supermop>tramway locomotive
21:09<supermop>could be a number , or a name that sounds like something a new company might name their first engine
21:09<Eddi|zuHause>so early steam engines just got names like "Adler" and "Saxonia", that carried on till the 1870s
21:09<Eddi|zuHause>then the various railway companies started having model series
21:10<supermop>so a person or place for the earliest, and then a number in the 1890s ish?
21:10<Eddi|zuHause>which usually involved a letter and one or two numbers
21:11<Eddi|zuHause>so the letter was something like "S", "G", "P", "T" denoting the usage of the engine
21:11-!-Thedarkb [~beno@51-171-49-41-dynamic.agg3.kny.prp-wtd.eircom.net] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:11<Eddi|zuHause>and the number was either some power stat or just the number of axles
21:11<supermop>were there many tramway locomotives in germany?
21:11<Eddi|zuHause>i don't know much about tramway locomotives
21:12<Eddi|zuHause>but, like trams now, they probably just enumerated them
21:13<supermop>probably overthinking it with two fake german brands
21:13<Eddi|zuHause>most trams were either horses or electric
21:14<Eddi|zuHause>steam trams were mostly just regular steam engines with some casing around it
21:14<supermop>these i am naming are basically that, small locomotives pulling wagons around harbors
21:16<Eddi|zuHause>you might call them "T1" and "T2" or something
21:19<supermop>'vogel' sounds dumb for such a slow vehicle
21:24<supermop>does 'Anfang' sound dumber for the first one?
21:36<supermop>also as a matter of describing the vehicles to players, 'tramway train' sounds stupid
21:36<supermop>'boxcar tram' also
21:37<supermop>'tramway motor with boxcar train' much too verbose
