01:48<boekabart>Why is 'town names' language greyed out? Do I need something?
01:49<@peter1138>you can't change it during a game
01:49<boekabart>ah yes
01:49<boekabart>obviously, but why can't i change it in scenario editor before i built any city?
01:49<@peter1138>probably just to be awkward
01:50<boekabart>there is no technical reason for it to be disabled?
01:51<staniel|desktop>probably not?
01:51|-|staniel|desktop changed nick to staniel
01:53|-|Zr40 [] has joined #openttd
01:55<@Rubidium>boekabart: when no towns have been built there is no technical reason, but it's probably useless to have lots of code to allow that
01:56<@Rubidium>when towns are built there is a technical reason
01:57<boekabart>Rubidium: what is that reason?
01:57<@Rubidium>duplicate townnames
01:57<boekabart>that's not checked by iterating all existing towns on town generation?
01:58<@Rubidium>if you change the language when you already have built towns you can get duplicate names
01:59<@Rubidium>the 'language' of the town names that is
02:00<boekabart>ok, so there is no check on-generate-town, because it's not necessary as long as the 'language' doesn't change, right?
02:01<@peter1138>i'm sure it does check
02:01<boekabart>let me check ;)
02:09<boekabart>town_cmd.cpp, line 1322 does the check
02:09<boekabart>Made a patch and tested, changing town name scheme in scenario editor doesn't seem to create any issue at all
02:10<staniel>now when you change it back does it give the same names back?
02:11<Jerub>sounds good. perhaps a 'randomise town names' button should be added :)
02:11<@peter1138>what might be nice is a "rerandomize name" button for towns, in the scenario editor
02:11<boekabart>switching back and forth between english and dutch, every time doing generate many towns, doesn't even HIT conflicting town names
02:12<staniel>boekabart: no, but that could be why it wasnt implemented before
02:12<boekabart>(the 'check duplicate' function never sees a duplicate so far)
02:13<staniel>wow, its only been 2 beers and I want to do karaoke :(
02:14<boekabart>staniel: what time zone are you in??
02:14<staniel>so its just after 3 in hte morning... monday morning
02:14<staniel>err tuesday morning
02:14<boekabart>ah, EST
02:15<staniel>its gotta be the dutch beer that does it
02:15<boekabart>here CET it's a little early for beer... heavily on coffee atm
02:15<staniel>im terrible with timezones - CET is where?
02:16<boekabart>central europe :) (from spain/france east to er, hungary, poland)
02:16<staniel>thank you noldo
02:16<boekabart>actually it's western europe -/- UK and Portugal
02:16<staniel>I knew someone would do that to me
02:20|-|ThePizzaKing [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
02:20<staniel>screw the karaoke, im gonna get the air guitar out lol
02:20<boekabart>careful not to break the snares!
02:21<boekabart>strings, i mean
02:21<Jerub>I mentioned it earlier, I'm wondering if it's possible to play openttd at all without the original graphics.
02:22<Jerub>The reason I'm asking is because I want to know if it will be possible to put openttd on the olpc.
02:22<@Rubidium>it is possible once someone has made a complete replacement pack for the graphics
02:22<staniel>Jerub: kinda new to it, but I saw a listing of graphics that needed to be done
02:22<Jerub>Rubidium: So is anything possible right now? is it possible to at least use placeholder graphics?
02:23<boekabart>afaik, there is not even a full placeholder gfx set
02:23<Jerub>yow, that bites.
02:24<staniel>theres alot of graphics
02:24<@peter1138>not the right graphics though
02:24<staniel>and probably not too many artists working on it
02:24<@peter1138>just random bits here and there
02:24<boekabart>it's easy to do though, just extract all the orig grf's to PCX files, overdraw them by hand, re-gen GRF
02:24<boekabart>just an awful lot of work
02:25<@peter1138>boekabart: not sure that counts as original ;p
02:25<staniel>doesn't that violate some copyright laws?
02:25<Jerub>the olpc project has to keep everything 100% above board.
02:25<Jerub>but it doesn't matter if the graphics are totally crap and there's only 1 train.
02:26<Jerub>just provided it can be demonstrated to actually work.
02:28<boekabart>peter1138: by overdraw I mean, not with the same colors
02:28<Jerub>So there isn't even a placeholder set. surely that shouldn't be too hard to put together...
02:28<Jerub>you just need to know all the correct dimensions.
02:29|-|ThePizzaKing [] has joined #openttd
02:29<@peter1138>Jerub: you are aware that openttd was originally disassembled from ttd, yes?
02:30<Jerub>peter1138: disassembled. as in reverse engineered?
02:30<Jerub>is it legal?
02:30<@peter1138>who knows
02:30<boekabart>it was done in sweden
02:30<boekabart>not in the US
02:31<staniel>oh I love different counties for their laws
02:31<Jerub>okay, dang. I'll drop an email to the FSF and get them to give me a legal opinion before I proceed.
02:31[~]staniel loves being canadian
02:32<@peter1138>fwiw, debian used to not want it, but i think it's in unstable now
02:32<@peter1138>dunno with repository though
02:32<@peter1138>maybe non-free ;)
02:33<boekabart>Jerub: Here a zip with all the original sprites in convenient 800x800 gif files:
02:33<staniel>heh, that rms program is totally gonna fail on my system lol
02:33<boekabart>go ahead, make everyones day!
02:33<ln->@kick boekabart
02:33<@peter1138>@kick boekabart ?
02:33<staniel>laggy bot?
02:34<boekabart>it's gif files, without nfo. totally useless
02:34<boekabart>it's derived work only
02:34<@peter1138>staniel: no privs ;p
02:34<staniel>lol ahh
02:34<@peter1138>who uses gif these days anyway
02:34<staniel>png ftw!
02:34<boekabart>ah, yes, could have used 8bpp png too
02:34<staniel>I wonder if any digital cameras use png...
02:35<boekabart>png is not too fit for photos
02:35<boekabart>anyway, i chose gif over pcx.
02:35<@peter1138>staniel: doubt it, they prefer their lovely raw formats :o
02:35<staniel>with the quality of my camera, bmp would work :P
02:35<boekabart>pcx is soooo 1975
02:35<boekabart>staniel: that's why your camera probably has an even better (10bits per color) RAW format, right?
02:36<staniel>nah, its only jpg I think...
02:36<Jerub>is there a decent page showing what happened with the reverse engineering?
02:42<@peter1138>not that i know of
02:44<staniel>is there a limit of how many boats can be moured (sp?) to a dock?
02:45<@peter1138>not yet
02:45<staniel>there a debate on that?
02:45<boekabart>is that also the reason why a can station have more than 1 loading dock for trucks, but not more than 1 dock ( since there's no need for that )?

02:56<boekabart>TrueBrain: I think I found a bug in 16x zoom:
02:57<boekabart>do you see those pixels on the bottom edges ? after zooming, they are black, so they are not drawn apparently.
02:59|-|maddy [~maddy@] has joined #openttd
03:00<boekabart>TrueBrain: Easier to see, dragged a red dialog over it so show which pixels are never drawn:
03:02<boekabart>BTW on my PC, 16x zoom on a 2048x2048 map scrolls perfectly fine on 1280x1024 resolution. PC: p4 2.4ghz
03:11<@peter1138>if only :p
03:12<@peter1138>is it ok at 8x?
03:12<@peter1138>and indeed 2x or 4x
03:12<boekabart>just double checked that
03:12<@peter1138>or even 1x, hehe
03:12<boekabart>made bugreport on
03:12<@peter1138>yes, i saw
03:12<@peter1138>#openttd.notice is useful ;)
03:13<@peter1138>ok, do i put up with windows being horribly slow here, or shall i boot from this ubuntu live cd i burnt this morning...
03:15<boekabart>i don't think it's a windows problem actually
03:15<boekabart>i think it's a blitter problem in fact
03:17<@peter1138>who ever said it was a windows problem?

07:32<boekabart>and truelight/truebrain is offline also
07:36<SpComb>the eweka network is down or somesuch
07:38<@orudge>tis a bit annoying, it's been good recently
07:38<@orudge>usually the outages aren't too long...
07:39<@orudge>so I hope they ought to have it fixed within 10 minutes or so

07:48<@orudge>Well, not quite all... but all of the OpenTTD and tt-forums stuff is in the same datacentre, yes
07:48<@orudge>because it's us who pays for it all
07:48<boekabart>how does one donate, actually?
07:49<@orudge>I'd link to the site, but, well...
07:50<@orudge>but anyway, PayPal is the best way
07:50<@orudge>but you can also donate in a few other ways
07:51<ln->(if you are a female?)
07:51<Digitalfox>orudge: Do you have a estimated price you pay for all this each year?
07:52<@orudge>for tt-forums it's probably around 1000 eur/year or so, TL also pays a fair bit towards it
07:53<@orudge>ln-: are you? :p
07:53<ln->and i don't think i'll ever be.
07:54<ln->btw, "you" in the sentence was in the meaning "one".
07:54<ln->like above
07:54<@orudge>I figured that, yes
07:54<Digitalfox>Shit 1000€?? How do you 2 mqnqge to pay all this?? Sure there are donations, but do they even take care of 50% ?
07:54<@orudge>but I just thought I'd ask
07:54<@orudge>The donations do help cover it
07:54<@orudge>and the rest is sponsored by my company, and his
07:54<@orudge>and/or my own pocket
07:55<Digitalfox>Well.. just two words for you.. THANK YOU
07:55<@orudge>No worries, heh
07:55<@orudge>it's just annoying when it goes down...

08:03<SpComb>250Gbit/s is the top
08:04<SpComb>but yes, it doubles towards the late afternoon/evening european time

15:20|-|Sacro [~Ben@adsl-87-102-80-216.karoo.KCOM.COM] has joined #openttd
15:20<+glx>townnames are just an int
15:20<boekabart>..which describes a combination of town-name-parts, right?
15:20<boekabart>a concatenation, in fact
15:21<+glx>different values can give the same name in a given language
15:21<@peter1138>not exactly, it's effectively a random seed
15:21<@peter1138>value, anyway
15:23<boekabart>but it seems a town in the end has a name which is a char*
15:23<boekabart>and those are dup-checked
15:23<boekabart>that's what I understand from the code
15:23<@peter1138>they're dup-checked... when a new town is created
15:24<hylje>you can create a new town midgame?
15:24<@peter1138>so if you have a dozen towns, then change the language, you could end up with a dozen towns with the same name
15:24<@peter1138>(unlikely, but it's possible)
15:24<@peter1138>hylje: scenario editor
15:24<boekabart>when changing the lang
15:24<Eddi|zuHause2>hylje: in the scenario editor you can, and there is a fund town patch
15:24<boekabart>the names didn't change of the existing towns?!
15:25<+glx>save and reload: they'll change
15:26<boekabart>aha, the names aren't saved in the savegame, just the int? ok then I stand corrected
15:26<boekabart>and then the IsAnyTownBuilt() check should be added

15:44<Eddi|zuHause2>errr... :p
15:46<boekabart>or change savegame so it includes townname as string?
15:46<boekabart>what's actually wrong with that
15:47<boekabart>apart from bigger savegame
15:47<boekabart>i guess the same int is used in industries too? or is that checked runtime, closest town->name ?

16:04<boekabart>so storing town name string in savegame wouldn't be impossible at all i guess

18:08<Haclet>Ups :) I haven't seen it before :) I checked but I miss it :) Is on the end of the list :)
18:08<Haclet>Rubidium: Are you developer of OTTD ?
18:15<Eddi|zuHause2>in windows, you can pres Ctrl+D, then everything appears twice as big (if you have bad eyes :p)
18:16<Haclet>thx - but I am using linux
18:16<Eddi|zuHause2>there exists a patch that also does that in linux, but it was not included in trunk
18:16<Eddi|zuHause2>i believe it was done by zevensoft
18:17<Haclet>Rubidium: Sorki for my question - I just read first line in variable.h :)
18:17<Haclet>You are developer ;) :) ;) :/
18:17<Haclet>I have an another question
18:17<+tokai>640x480 fullscreen on a 20" has nice magnification effect too.
18:18<Haclet>I am tring make my own new window in game - I greated widget, I added close button, title pannel,
18:18<Eddi|zuHause2>i loathe switching resolutions, it tends to mess everything up
18:18<+tokai>Eddi|zuHause2: depends on the OS.
18:18<Haclet>And everything look nice - my window appears but when I am clicking to close button - nothing is happen
18:19<Eddi|zuHause2>especially when applications exit abnormally
18:19<+tokai>Haclet: i guess u need to handle the close event and close the window manually.
18:19<Eddi|zuHause2>tokai: that happened on every OS i tried
18:19<Haclet>and when I quit from game - I have segmentation error
18:20<+tokai>Eddi|zuHause2: on MorphOS you actually have 2 real screens in that case. which u can easily switch.. the desktop screen doesn't mess up then.
18:20<Haclet>I newbie in OTTD code - but I trying do it execly like another window are open,
18:20|-|Ammler [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
18:21<Haclet>I know there is some events - like WE_PAINT, WE_CLICK but I didn't find out how execly does it work :)
18:22<Haclet>Hmm - about screens - I have old monitor - But I would like to see screenshot from 20'' in 1024x768 :)
18:22<Haclet>Have anyone ?
18:23<Haclet>Rubidium: Are there still ?
18:23<+tokai>nope, my screen is bigger.
18:23<Haclet>tokai: what do U mean ?
18:23<+tokai>Haclet: i only can provide 21.3" WS screenshot ;)
18:23<+tokai>(aka 1680x1050)
18:24<+tokai>anyway.. time for sleep.
18:24<Eddi|zuHause2>i only have 1600x1200 screenshots
18:24<Haclet>tokai: could you give me some like, plase - to see it :)
18:25<Haclet>okej okej - I ment that I would like to see nice screenshots in high resolutions :) Have anyone in some website ?
18:27<Haclet>Thx :)
18:27<@Rubidium>Haclet: there are many causes why it doesn't work/segfault and I don't like guessing
18:27<@Rubidium>nor do I have a lot of time
18:28<Eddi|zuHause2>i have some more screenshots, but i don't feel like finding out the names right now
18:28<+tokai>Eddi|zuHause2: safari doesn't like your URLs ;)
18:29<+tokai>cuts in front of the comma
18:29<Eddi|zuHause2>what's wrong with them?
18:29<Eddi|zuHause2>bad luck :p
18:29<Haclet>Rubidium: I don't ask to guess - but I thought, that I can create Window like others, but I was suprise.. I know I miss something - but at this moment I don't know what
18:29<Eddi|zuHause2>i don't remember the ascii code of the comma right now
18:30<Haclet>Nice screenshots :)
18:30<Haclet>But are you playing with this resolution - or you just made screenshot :)
18:30<+tokai>unicode is 2c
18:31<+tokai>should be identical to ascii AFAIR
18:31<Haclet>I couldn't play with this resolutions ;)
18:31<Haclet>I see nothing ;) [I have bad eyes :)]
18:31<Eddi|zuHause2>i play with this resolution
18:31<Eddi|zuHause2>but often i'd switch to Ctrl+D
18:31<Haclet>Hehe :)
18:31<+tokai>Haclet: sounds like u run the wrong resolution on your monitor
18:32<Eddi|zuHause2>i'd love separate x 1/2 zoom and gui-zoom
18:32<Haclet>tokai: no - I have old monitor ;) Compaq S510 :)
18:32<Haclet>And when I switch on 1024x768 It olmost OK - but small text is not OK :)
18:33<Eddi|zuHause2>i have a 21" tube monitor
18:33<+tokai>Haclet: whats that 15"?
18:33<Haclet>yeap :(
18:33<+tokai>well.. 800x600 is optimal resolution then
18:34<Haclet>I know :)
18:34<Eddi|zuHause2>i used to have a 14" monitor on 1280x960
18:34<+tokai>i know crazy ppl.. who run 1600x1200 on 17" ;)
18:34<Haclet>Tell me gays... When the game is in multiplayer mode - and noone is playing - the time goes normally, right?
18:34[~]HMage is not gay :)
18:34<+tokai>Eddi|zuHause2: crazy.
18:34<Haclet>Sorki :)
18:34<Eddi|zuHause2>Haclet: small tip: it's "guys", not "gays"
18:35<+tokai>gays just means happy ppl, no ?:)
18:35<Haclet>gays = OTTD Comunity :)
18:36<Haclet>Okej - my mistake :)
18:36<Eddi|zuHause2>Haclet: there's an option to pause the server if there are less than x clients
18:36<Haclet>Hej - I apologise for this word ;)
18:37<Haclet>My english is not good sometimes. In normal speaking (not writting) sometimes people says "G...s" - but I though I wrote correct - but I made biiig mistake ...
18:38<HMage>Haclet: don't worry, we understood what you wanted to say, I just couldn't resist to have some fun along the way ;)
18:38<Haclet>HMage: It's OK - I am still improving my english skills ;)
18:38<Haclet>HMage: so how should be correct write ;)
18:39<+tokai>Only homophobias were offended.
18:40[~]Eddi|zuHause2 was offended :p

18:40<Haclet>Eddi|zuHause2: I thougt about option - for example - server is running, people can play, time goes noramlly, when all players quit - the time stop, and will start again when players from all company will connect
18:40<Haclet>What do U think ?
18:40<Eddi|zuHause2>that is exactly what it already does
18:40<HMage>well, back to your question, Haclet, the time runs there as usual, unless you configure the server to pause the game with no clients
18:41<Haclet>Eddi|zuHause2: really :) Ups I have some good idea :) :)
18:42<HMage>you can: 1) edit your .cfg file, find a line with 'min_players', and change from 0 to 1 or 2, or more :)
18:42<HMage>2) open up console on server and write 'min_players 1', you can change 1 to another number.
18:42<Haclet>HMage: echhh - so thats mean I have to learn a lot about OTTD - I tried found this future but I didn't. :/
18:43<Haclet>HMage: But this give only minimum players for start game, right?
18:43<Haclet>But - for example you have below situation:
18:44<HMage>Haclet: this option is not in menu, you have to configure it via console on server or config file. This is a minimum number of players when the game will be unpaused.
18:44<Haclet>4 players are playing, 2 companies... - there are quit (for example min players are set to 2)
18:45<HMage>If you already know that all those 4 players are going to player there, then set min_players to 4.
18:45<HMage>are going to play*
18:45<Haclet>And now 2 players are connecting but in one company - And game will start, right? But
18:46<Haclet>Yes - I understand - but my question is - is there in OTTD option which allow only start game when player connect with difrent comany
18:46<+glx>yes even if they are in the same company the unpause limit is reached so the server unpauses
18:46<Haclet>companies ;)
18:46<Haclet>thx glx
18:46<Eddi|zuHause2>i am always tempted to scroll my own screenshots :p
18:47<+glx>me too ;)
18:47<HMage>Haclet: I'm not a developer, but I see no reason. The whole idea of building a company is that it will make profit even when nobody manages it.
18:47<+glx>but it opens a popup when I do that
18:47<Haclet>And tell me - how can become OTTD developer ? What is minimal requitments?
18:47<Haclet>HMage: You are right?
18:48<Sionide>Haclet, being able to code an effective patch which does something useful
18:48|-|Osai [] has quit [Quit: Osai]
18:48<Haclet>Sionide: But I have a lot of ideas, but where Can I check what is useful?
18:49<Sionide>can you code C++?
18:49<Haclet>HMage: Yes - but for example I can play ones on week
18:49<Sionide>(i think it's c++ or maybe c)
18:49<Haclet>Sionide: Not beginer, not master - but intermidate with STL
18:49<Sionide>depends on your ideas then i suppose
18:49|-|Bjarni [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
18:50<Haclet>HMage: and somebody else can play more often - And he can growing his comapny - and mine is stady until I start play
18:50<Haclet>HMage: I though about option for server - you can switch on or off it :)
18:51<Eddi|zuHause2>you can always manually pause the server
18:51<Haclet>Sionide: thx
18:52<Haclet>Eddi|zuHause2: right, if you have access to it.
18:52<HMage>Haclet: In my opinion, even if someone becomes more competetive than your company, you'll have to catch up like in real world. That's the challenge.
18:53<Sionide>Haclet, a web front end to a server would be quite cool perhaps
18:53<Haclet>HMage: I agree with you - its good chalange.
18:53|-|Frostregen_ [] has joined #openttd
18:54<Haclet>HMage: It was just my idea and question, and now I have point of view from you, and is not like mine - thats is OK.
18:54<Haclet>Sionide: Could you arond - I didn't understand (not enough english skills :P)
18:55<Haclet>HMage: I though that will be good option for server - but another give me some advices which I can do at this time
18:55<Eddi|zuHause2>Haclet: of course you have to have access to the server, you can hardly tell people on other people's servers when to not play the game
18:56<Haclet>Eddi|zuHause2: You are defenetly right.
18:57<HMage>if it's your server and you know everyone you're playing with, just pause the game and communicate with other players so all of you can continue later
18:57|-|Vikthor [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
18:57|-|Frostregen [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
18:57<Haclet>HMage: right! The simple way is the best way.
18:57|-|Frostregen_ changed nick to Frostregen
18:58<HMage>and then later, start the server, pause it if it's not, wait until everyone joins, then unpause
18:58<Eddi|zuHause2>you can also make cron jobs to pause and unpause the game at certain times
18:59<Haclet>Yes, but if I understand correctly. The first client who will connect to server - can be administaror of server, right?
18:59<Eddi|zuHause2>so you can run a server that only unpauses on saturday and sunday, or only on the evenings of weekdays, or similar
18:59<Eddi|zuHause2>i don't think so
19:00<Haclet>Eddi|zuHause2: wait, how - can I send message to server - if is running ?
19:00<+glx>using rcon
19:00<Eddi|zuHause2>i have never run a server, but brianetta has an autopilot, that can do a lot of stuff from remote
19:00<+glx>but you need the password
19:01<HMage>Haclet: the administrator of the server is the person who starts the server.
19:02<Haclet>glx: explain me, please - it is extended software - or with source ?
19:02<+glx>it's a console command of openttd
19:03<HMage>unfortunately I've got to go, have fun everyone :)
19:03|-|HMage changed nick to HMage`afk
19:03<Haclet>OK - but how can I use cron to run rcon - if rcon required console working under OTTD ?
19:04<Haclet>HMage`afk: bye - and thanks :)
19:04<Haclet>Is time to go for me too.
19:04<Haclet>I will apear ASAP here :)
19:05<Haclet>So thank you everybody for help and nice answers.
19:05<Haclet>See you sortly.
