07:36|-|TheJosh [] has joined #openttd
07:36<TheJosh>hey all
07:37<TheJosh>ok i have a quick c++ question.
07:39<TheJosh>in higher level languages, there is such a thing as a 'dynamic array'. they grow and shrink all by themselves. I know that it is possible to do this in c++ by creating a heap object, and keeping a 'length' parameter, and if you want to grow beyond that length, yo reallocate bigger and copy over all the data. the question is, how do you do this practically (in the scope of OpenTTD that is)
07:39<Biff>realloc() is something you often use for dynamic arrays
07:40<TheJosh>how does that work?
07:40<TheJosh>so you dont use new?
07:40<Biff>it expands or shrinks an array
07:40<TheJosh>wipe the data in it?
07:40<Biff>well, this is how it can be done in c, i dont know if c++ has some better method to do it
07:41<Biff>realloc(myarr,size*2) for instance
07:41<Biff>and it keeps the values
07:41<Noldo>in c++ stdlib there are nice dynamic containers
07:42<Noldo>vector is propably the closest to dynamic array
07:42<TheJosh>realloc is just like malloc
07:42<TheJosh>its currently a fixed array of a struct
07:42<TheJosh>i want it to start at 50 elements, and grow in increments of 50
07:42<TheJosh>most games wont reach 50 anyway, but i need the facility to grow to about 500 if need be
07:43<colle>you could write some kind of a linked list if you don't want to use the stdlib
07:43<Biff>if you use realloc you can accomplish that
07:43<Biff>linked lists are very slow if you iterate through them
07:44<TheJosh>about that. what is the fastest thing to iterate? an array and a for loop?
07:44<Biff>pretty much
07:44<Biff>then the array will be cached
07:45<TheJosh>cool thanks. i do a lot of programming in other languages (PHP mainly, as a job) and dynamic + associative arrays are taken for granted
07:45<Biff>the thing to remember is that what makes it slow is when you have to fetch stuff from memory, and its not cached
07:45<Biff>as will often be the case with linked lists
07:45<hylje>php ew
07:46<TheJosh>hylje: php is good for web stuff
07:46<TheJosh>Biff: you mean cached on the cpu?
07:46<Biff>TheJosh: yup, its nice in higher level languages, but thats why they are much much slower then c/c++ for alot of things
07:46<Biff>TheJosh: correct
07:46|-|ThePizzaKing [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:46<Biff>every memory request goes through the cpu
07:46<Biff>eh, through the cache
07:46<Biff>sorry :-)
07:46<TheJosh>Biff: i know, but imagine making a web program in c++
07:47<Biff>yeah, that would be fun :-P
07:47<Biff>its not really all that hard actually
07:47<hylje>TheJosh: developing for php is a pain
07:47<TheJosh>and the cpu can do lookahead? sorry i studied assembly when 386 was the big thing and the cpu didnt do anything cool
07:47<Biff>but i wouldn recommend it
07:47<TheJosh>hylje: i dont mind PHP
07:48<TheJosh>Biff: eBay is in c
07:48<Biff>there you go
07:48<hylje>wasnt ebay java-based?
07:48<TheJosh>i dont know now...mabey it has changed.
07:48<hylje>it used to use ISAPI
07:48<TheJosh>PHP is real good for building a site quickly
07:49<Biff>it would be alot of code tho
07:49<TheJosh>and talking to databases easily and stuff like that
07:49<Touqen>From what I can tell ebay still uses ISAPI
07:49<Touqen>Which can be written in a number of things
07:49<hylje>Touqen: backwards compability
07:49<Biff>php is ok
07:49<hylje>i for one developed a blog app mostly from scratch in about three hours
07:49<Biff>i hope python will be more used for web stuff tho
07:49<TheJosh>i want to learn the php gtk extention...destkop apps
07:49<Touqen>php gtk is a joke.
07:49<Biff>i prefer python
07:50<TheJosh>Touqen: i know
07:50<hylje>php gtk? seriously?
07:50<eekee>lol heard of it
07:50<TheJosh>there is an extention to do _anything_ in php
07:50<Biff>TheJosh: why do you want to learn something you cant name one good program that uses?
07:50<TheJosh>Biff: quest for knowledge
07:50<hylje>i'd rather use python for desktop apps
07:50<TheJosh>i like learning things. not in a class and stuff, but teaching myself
07:50<Biff>how about learning gtk in for example python
07:51<Biff>i agree
07:51<Biff>but learn something that is worth learning
07:51<hylje>hell, i use python for about everything
07:51<TheJosh>my next thing is gtk in c++ once i get alright at c++ (thanks to OpenTTD)
07:51<TheJosh>i havent learnt python yet...perhaps next.
07:52<TheJosh>i know a lot of languages
07:52<eekee>Python's very easy to learn, IMHO
07:52<eekee>Either that or it happens to be compatible with my particular brain damage :d
07:56<TheJosh>i just forgot i learnt scheme the other day and havent added a userbox wo my wikipedia account! panic! (not really, i dont use wikipedia much now)

08:00<TheJosh>and i talk way way too much!
08:00<Thomas[NL]>hmm is the wiki down?
08:01<TheJosh>entire website looks down

08:08<hylje>there is a party?
08:10<ln-_>yeah, today.
08:10<ln-_>i think.
08:20<eekee>anyone know a good pixiel art program for Linux? I'm using the Gimp, &, well, it's passable & I'm familiar with it, but it's... a bit clunky
08:22<TheJosh>bit big for pixel editing?
08:24<TheJosh>what controlls a train while it is in a station? Vehicle::HandleLoading (veichle.cpp) seems to be only called when the train enters, and again when it leaves, and TrainController (train_cmd.cpp) does not appear to be called at all
08:30<eekee>TheJosh: I can't find the pallete dialog. I'm using the color picker instead but it pops up it's little information window over my work every time I use it.
08:30<eekee>other than that it's quite adequate

08:36<TheJosh>i am also teaching myself gimp, after playing with Corel Photo Paint for ages, and Macromedia FIreworks
08:36<TheJosh>i like the gimp the most (and its easy to make extentions for)
08:37<+tokai>the only advance gimp has over photoshop is the price;)
08:37<TheJosh>gimp is pretty good i reckon
08:37<+tokai>its a bit uncomfortable to use, but i guess when you're linux only or short on bucks its the perfect choice
08:38<eekee>What I gather (I've never used Photoshop) is that the gimp is pretty good, but people seem to get more done with photoshop. Might be the large number of plugis avalable for ps
08:38<+tokai>a real pixel paint app for the modern OSes would be nice. U know.. something like DeluxPaint
08:40<TheJosh>perhaps i will make that my first GTK+ project... i have been looking for something to do with GTK+ once i get better at c++
08:40<TheJosh>you wouldnt happen to know where the train loading code is?
08:40<eekee>I wouidn't, no
08:42<Unaimed>perhaps BeginLoading is a place to start looking?

08:49<DJGummikuh>oh I need tcp AND udp?
08:49<Eddi|zuHause2>it says that :)
08:50<DJGummikuh>can someone please check if my server can be found? "DJGummikuh's playhouse" and if you can join it?
08:50<DJGummikuh>unfortunately I don't have a running client here right nwo to check myself
08:52<TheJosh>you also may need to set up port forwarding, but i am not sure
08:52<DJGummikuh>no forwarding ^^
08:52<DJGummikuh>the iptables are running on the dedicated itself
08:52<eekee>DJGummikuh: found. version mismatch with me though ;0
08:53<DJGummikuh>what version are you running?
08:53<DJGummikuh>hmm ok
08:55<Eddi|zuHause2>r7691M-MiniIN :)
08:56<Eddi|zuHause2>but i can see it, also.
09:01<blathijs>Greetings from the r10000 party!
09:01<Eddi|zuHause2>i am pretty sure nobody else out there has my version number :)
09:01<Touqen>In your face
09:02<@Belugas>greetings to the party from the work farm , blathijs :)
09:02<@Belugas>say hi to everyone on my behalf!
09:02<Eddi|zuHause2>who can get me a teleportation device? :)
09:03<eekee>mew, what country, and what region of?
09:03<Eddi|zuHause2>i even have two heisenberg compensators :)
09:04<Eddi|zuHause2>honestly :)
09:05<Eddi|zuHause2>they are from some star trek card game... they were used as packaging material...
09:07<Eddi|zuHause2>there also was a montgomery scott and an intrepid class ship (=voyager)
09:07<eekee>As packaging? dude
09:10<TheJosh>ok so why would this code not work?
09:10<TheJosh>int DeterminePercentTrainFilled(Vehicle *v) {
09:10<TheJosh> int count = 0;
09:10<TheJosh> int max = 0;
09:10<TheJosh> do {
09:10<TheJosh> count += v->cargo_count;
09:10<TheJosh> max += v->cargo_cap;
09:10<TheJosh> } while ((v = v->next) != NULL);
09:10<TheJosh> return (count / max) * 100;
09:10<TheJosh>sorry about the big post
09:12<TheJosh>always returns 0
09:13<Eddi|zuHause2>doesn't the code calculate such stats already with improved loading?
09:13<Eddi|zuHause2>count and max are integers
09:14<Eddi|zuHause2>so count/max is an integer division
09:14<Eddi|zuHause2>do (count*100)/max instead
09:14<TheJosh>ok thanks
09:14<+glx>and check for max != 0 before the div (just in case)
09:16<TheJosh>it works!
09:16<Eddi|zuHause2>of course it works :)
09:16<+glx>now try with an engine without wagons :)
09:17<TheJosh>not in this build
09:17<TheJosh>doesnt have that IF yet...
09:17<TheJosh>looks cool too, there is a floating percentage above the train
09:17<Nickman>if (max == 0) {
09:17<Nickman> return 0;
09:18<Eddi|zuHause2>on one line without {}
09:18<stillunknown>Is there anything that would prevent simply adding a variable to the saveload table?
09:18<Nickman>don't know the coding conventions used so ;)
09:18<Eddi|zuHause2>you better read up on those :)
09:18<Nickman>or maybe throw an exeption if possible?

16:13<@Bjarni>both yes and no
16:14<@Bjarni>everything that affects gameplay can affect network games
16:15<@Bjarni>so if you managed to make the patch inconsistent so the cache isn't the same on both server and client, then you might end up with a cache of 1 on a tile with two trains
16:15<@Bjarni>I don't think that's likely though
16:15<@Bjarni>but if it's 1 on one computer and 2 on another one, then the trains crash one the latter, while they pass though each other on the first, which will cause a desync
16:16<stillunknown>But i desync before the game even starts, sometimes even on a normal build.
16:17<stillunknown>Is it possible that lacking newgrf, which are disabled cause problems?

19:02<UndernotBuilder>that's because I don't use nightlies / want to get 0.6.0 released
19:02<Eddi|zuHause>so what is the problem?
19:03<Eddi|zuHause>current stable is 0.5.2, if you use that, you will find the most compatible servers
19:03<UndernotBuilder>but there are less features in 0.5.2
19:03<Eddi|zuHause>trunk is by far not ready for 0.6.0
19:04<Eddi|zuHause>or rather, it is too soon after 0.5.0
19:04<UndernotBuilder>no trams, no one way roads, no other great features
19:04<Eddi|zuHause>but still, what is the problem?
19:05<UndernotBuilder>I want to play with more features
19:05<Eddi|zuHause>and what does that have to do with specific revisions?
19:06<Eddi|zuHause>if you find an unstable server, just get the revision that server runs
19:06<UndernotBuilder>because generally servers uses different revisions
19:06<Eddi|zuHause>that's what 'svn up -r XXXXX' is for
19:06<DJGummikuh>this does not make any sense
19:06<DJGummikuh>I allowed port 3979 udp and tcp
19:06<DJGummikuh>nevertheless I can't connect to the server
19:07<UndernotBuilder>and I don't want to download 3484189471 different revisions
19:07<@Belugas>UndernotBuilder : if nobody test the nightlies, how can we find all the bugs that are in it?
19:07<@Belugas>don't forget that nighlies will bring 0.6.0 and others as well...
19:07<UndernotBuilder>that's the point
19:07<DJGummikuh>only if I do iptables -F it works
19:07<DJGummikuh>I have a strange bug with 0.5.2
19:07<Eddi|zuHause>UndernotBuilder: the point of a nightly is that it is a different one every night
19:07<UndernotBuilder>make the nightlies more popular
19:08<DJGummikuh>when on tracks from lower right to upper left, the coal lorrys for monorails appear full when they are empty
19:08<Eddi|zuHause>UndernotBuilder: then start your own nightly server
19:08<DJGummikuh>as soon as the train alters direction they appear empty again but as long as it travelles from upper left to lower right or vice versa they allways look full
19:08<Eddi|zuHause>and deal with all the issues that come with it
19:08<UndernotBuilder>and the others nightly servers?
19:09<@Belugas>what about them?
19:09|-|setrodox [] has quit [Quit: Hapiness ;D]
19:09<UndernotBuilder>and also, I will not get too many clients like in stables
19:09<Eddi|zuHause>brianettas nightly was very popular
19:10<UndernotBuilder>and the others servers will not use always the same revision than my server
19:10<DJGummikuh>does someone here have a 0.5.2 running?
19:10<Eddi|zuHause>until he decided to stop it, because trunk got very little changes, while important features were developed in branches
19:10<DJGummikuh>and can tell me if it needs any other port than 3979 in tcp and udp?
19:10<@Belugas>DJGummikuh, no, sorry
19:10<@Belugas>but i will eventually check it
19:10<DJGummikuh>Belugas: yeah looks rather odd ^^
19:10<Rubidium>DJGummikuh: it doesn't, unless you want to run an advertised server
19:11<DJGummikuh>Rubidium: it already is advertised
19:11<DJGummikuh>dbg: [NET][UDP] We are advertised on the master-server!
19:11<DJGummikuh>well wait
19:11<DJGummikuh>that was before I started my firewall..
19:11<DJGummikuh>what ports do I need for an advertised server?
19:11<Rubidium>!openttd port
19:11<_42_>Rubidium: OpenTTD uses TCP and UDP port 3979 for server <-> client communication and UDP port 3978 for masterserver (advsertise) communication (outbound)
19:12<DJGummikuh>Rubidium: I know that... but this info does not make my server appear when it should...
19:12<Eddi|zuHause>then you misconfigured your firewall
19:12<DJGummikuh>I have tcp and udp for 3979 activated and I don't need to declare any outgoing things
19:12<+glx>do you have a router?
19:12<DJGummikuh>glx: no
19:12<DJGummikuh>that's why I run iptables on the machine hosting the server ^^
19:12<DJGummikuh>it has a global ip
19:13<DJGummikuh>iptables -A INPUT -p udp --dport 3979 -j ACCEPT #OpenTTD
19:13<DJGummikuh>iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 3979 -j ACCEPT #OpenTTD
19:13<DJGummikuh>that should be ok, no?
19:13<Eddi|zuHause>i did not try to configure iptables manually yet...
19:14<Rubidium>if it works without firewall *and* you didn't force the port to be different, that should be OK if it were the only lines, but other lines could kick OTTD packets on beforehand
19:14<+glx>DJGummikuh: I can see your playhouse server
19:15<DJGummikuh>yes and now I even can access it... why couldn't I do so before? *confused*
19:15<CIA-1>OpenTTD: rubidium * r10050 /trunk/ (config.lib configure): -Codechange: make it a little easier to force a version number (for releases).
19:15<Eddi|zuHause>DJGummikuh: the order of the rules is often important
19:15<DJGummikuh>Eddi|zuHause: I haven't changed anything
19:16<DJGummikuh>Eddi|zuHause: hmm...
19:16<Eddi|zuHause>they always say that :p
19:16<UndernotBuilder>but someone has a solution for my trouble?
19:16<DJGummikuh>maybe some of the admins of the net gone loco again -.-
19:16|-|Nukebuster [] has joined #openttd
19:18<Eddi|zuHause>i always used the SuSEFirewall2 wrapper to configure iptables
19:19<DJGummikuh>Eddi|zuHause: well I'm more the old fashioned way and do it by hand.. that way I can be quite sure that (despite my own dumbness) nothing stands between what I WANT the firewall to do and what it actually DOES :D
19:20<@Belugas>UndernotBuilder, i don't think that the simple fact of using nightlies will push users away. Make it attractive with some nice features, like cool maps, a good set of grfs, thinkgs like that
19:20<@Belugas>advertise it on your signature,
19:20<@Belugas>let yourself visible
19:20<@Belugas>and do not care about the other servers, only yours
19:21<DJGummikuh>ah btw visible servers
19:22<DJGummikuh>you should really somehow forbid to add special chars as first char in the server name to push the server further to the top when listed by name
19:22|-|Tobin [] has quit [Quit: Tobin]
19:22<Rubidium>DJGummikuh: then everybody would call his server aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
19:22<DJGummikuh>if you only allow letters to be the first char, this habit should go away
19:22<DJGummikuh>Rubidium: I don't think so
19:22<Eddi|zuHause>there are two basic ways to run a nigtly server: a) stop the game each night, update the binary, reload the game again, or b) start the game on one revision, and keep it until the game ends, then update for the next game
19:22<DJGummikuh>,.-'°FunnyServer°'-., doesn't look as stupid as
19:23<DJGummikuh>AAAAAAAAAAA Funny Server
19:23<Rubidium>still, who cares about that ordering?
19:23<DJGummikuh>Well I do since I need a way to find my server which starts with D
19:23<Eddi|zuHause>you could introduce a setting to ignore special characters when sorting
19:23<DJGummikuh>as an alternative you could implement something like a favorite list
19:24<DJGummikuh>or "recently played" or something similar
19:24<+glx>DJGummikuh: use connect_to in cfg
19:24<Rubidium>connect once manually to that server by entering it's IP or dns name
19:24<DJGummikuh>and then?
19:25<+glx>[servers] section is a good thing too
19:25<Rubidium>the next time it'll already be in the server list
19:26<CIA-1>OpenTTD: rubidium * r10051 /trunk/ ( config.lib): -Add: git "version" detection so we've got at least some indication what version we're playing when using git ;)
19:40<DJGummikuh>you made it?
19:41<Sleepie>Nice one :) is the space between the four parts usable for infrastructure or is it just eyecandy?
19:43<@Belugas>they are the creation of mr Pikka
19:43<DJGummikuh>what is so special about it that its worth a screenshot though?
19:43|-|KritiK [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
19:43<@Belugas>that is a little victory i had just a few minutes ago over newindustries !
19:44<DJGummikuh>what's newindustries? (sorry if this is a dumb question)
19:44<@Belugas>DJGummikuh, try to meet a forest like those two in the current game ;)
19:44<@Belugas>it's a grf specs that enables creating and/or modifying industries
19:45<@Belugas>we had newhouses recently, newindustries is the logical follow up
19:45<Sleepie>Belugas: ahh, Pikka's latest creations anyway really nice and even better to see them in a openttd game ;)
19:46<DJGummikuh>Belugas: well I have a rather large forest in my current game on my server.. looks like 2 forests put next to each other but is only one
19:47<Sleepie>DJGummikuh: are you sure it's only one?
19:47<DJGummikuh>Sleepie: well if I click on it, only one info window openes
19:48<Sleepie>DJGummikuh: hmm, even if you click at different edges? Perhaps you have a screenie of it?
19:49<DJGummikuh>Sleepie: if you have 0.5.2 handy you could simply join and check for yourself.. I'll double-check though
19:50<DJGummikuh>ok now two windows were opened
19:50<DJGummikuh>I would have bet money on that last time I checked there was only one forest.. :)
19:51<Sleepie>well no prob, I do that often when I make new maps
19:51<Eddi|zuHause>how far is it from this success to the "end-victory"? :p
19:51<@Belugas>there are only 2 versions of the forest ingame. one with 18 tiles, the other with 23. but none bare the same patterna s the two i've just shonw
19:53<DJGummikuh>ah yeah one other thing.. why aren't you on freenode?
19:54<DJGummikuh>right now I have to be on 4 irc servers because everybody is on his own irc server... that sucks
19:55<Rubidium>because there were some trouble with freenode for a very long time and at a point it was "enough" and we moved
19:55<DJGummikuh>hmm... problems with their policy or what?
19:56<+glx>register for PM is an example
19:57<@Belugas>this one for sure you don't see often around :
19:57<DJGummikuh>glx: actually I like that policy
19:57<@Belugas>Eddi|zuHause : i still maintain my ETA : somewhere around fall
19:57<DJGummikuh>lol nice
19:59<Eddi|zuHause>fall gets nearer every day :)
20:00<@Belugas>yeah. but it's 3 months long :D

20:36<Rubidium>what's with trac?
20:37<gass>the problem that is facing is fixed in trac 0.10.4
20:37<gass>two concurrent resync attempts can leave the database in an inconsistent state

20:38|-|Eddi|zuHause [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
