03:26<dihedral>i gotta say, i love the 2 responses below ^^
03:28<Forked>I bet he never opened up the wiki
03:28<@petern>the whati?
03:28<Forked>I'm tempted to reply: STOP! Wikitime.
03:29<dihedral>i love that he asks where to get the source from :-P he'll probably not even try before someone replies :-P
03:29<Forked>anyway.. I setup mingw again the other day following the whutsthisi .. and only had to improvise on one step
03:30<Timitry>And then Alain gives him the link to the binaries, not to the source :P
03:33<Forked>"can some one please update this patchs and i am off to bed"

05:21<DASPRiD>dihedral, "is also there"
05:21<DASPRiD>or, "is there, too"
05:21<dihedral>actually it's not incorrect ^^
05:21<DASPRiD>i never heard it like that.. and it sounds pretty wrong ;>
05:22<dihedral>you are 100% german!!
05:22<DASPRiD>and? :P
05:22<dihedral>how would you have heard that, your teachers were 100% german also <- hehe
05:22<DASPRiD>my grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-father was probably englishman? :P
05:22<dihedral>and they such :-P
05:22<DASPRiD>dihedral, because i'm pretty often in the US? ;)
05:22<dihedral>who said it's us-english?
05:23<dihedral>they don't speak english anyway
05:23<DASPRiD>nobody speaks english, UK speaks british, US speaks something else
05:23<dihedral>further down to the bottom of the page
05:24<DASPRiD>never trust open dictionaries *G*
05:24<DASPRiD>there is a button at the top "fehler melden"
05:24*dihedral clicks on DASPRiD's 'fehler melden' button ^^
05:24<DASPRiD>dihedral, there is just a single example "open to non-members also"
05:24<DASPRiD>all other examples go against you ;>
05:25<dihedral>they dont 'go agains' me
05:25<dihedral>they just define other usages
05:25<DASPRiD>no, the correct one :x
05:26<dihedral>go play some php ^^

06:51<racetrack>yapf is insane. I think I'm just starting to get my head around it but I've sunk many many hours into it
06:52<@petern>ah, coding wise
06:53<@petern>yes, it's "a bit" of a monster
06:53<@petern>alas, it was probably another thing rushed in :p
06:53<racetrack>really? how so?
06:54<racetrack>I understand some of why its been done the way it has. unfortunately that makes it difficult to poke at and learn from
06:55<racetrack>that said, I'm not use to using gdb with hardcore c++ code .. there might be some things i can do with it to make life easier
07:02<Hendikins>Ah, I remember my one major fault playing this game. I try to be too elegant.

11:10<totalwormage>yeah that one is nice :]]]
11:10<totalwormage>i wonder how many people knew of it existence

11:26<planetmaker>My guess is that it's visible, but barely so.
11:28-!-Yeggs-away is now known as Yeggstry
11:28<@petern>visible on aerial view, but not other wise
11:29-!-Fuco [] has joined #openttd
11:31<planetmaker>petern: depends on your lens you use :)look at
11:32<planetmaker>it with another hubble pointing downward...
11:33<@Rubidium>you can't make very clear pictures of earth from space
11:35<planetmaker>oh, sufficiently clear...
11:35<planetmaker>adaptive optics are your friend :)
11:35<@petern>but we were talking about *google*'s maps
11:36<planetmaker>petern: I found my car on google maps...
11:36<planetmaker>and it's definitely smaller than a house.
11:36<@petern>depends on the location
11:37-!-tkjacobsen [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
11:37<@Rubidium>just slowly zoom in. If you see a (massive) colour change when going between levels you're going from the sattelite image to the image made from a plane
11:37<planetmaker>sure it does. But I don't live in a region with particular high detail. Downtown Berlin is mapped better. Probably other big cities, too
11:38<@petern>oh i see
11:38<@petern>i didn't realise YOU had a GIANT PENIS on your roof
11:38<@petern>and, grrr, why is my ssh forwarding not working :(
11:38<planetmaker>I'm not living in England. I don't need to paint that on my roof in order to show my masculinity :P
11:39<@Rubidium>petern: he meant that one couldn't see his because of blurry sattelite images
11:40<williham>Damn sattelites, depriving us of roofs whereupon penises are pictured!

11:41<planetmaker>Rubidium: well, yeah, google's satellite images don't show it.
11:41<HackaLittleBit>ggogle earth
11:42<planetmaker>But given a resolution in sum - meter range _is_ possible from a low Earth orbit, one could see it :)
11:49<planetmaker>tell that NASA :P
11:50*Hendikins wonders if he's the only one having regular bouts of "WTF was I thinking?" when playing this game :P
11:52<@Rubidium>if it involves cars you should send it as a suggestion to Top Gear ;)

12:19<eQualizer>Is this a bug or feature that when competitors go bankrupt, there isn't any question about bying them?
12:21-!-frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
12:23<@Rubidium>eQualizer: playing with more than one competitor, right?
12:24<@Rubidium>then it might very well be that the other competitors got asked whether they wanted to buy it
12:24-!-OwenS [] has joined #openttd
12:24<eQualizer>...though, my competitor is AdmiralAI, does that have something to do?
12:24<Yexo>yes, NoAI competitors can't buy opponents
12:24<Yexo>so it might very well be a bug
12:26<eQualizer>Oh wait, could it have something to do with the "Allow bying shares from other companies" patch?
12:26<eQualizer>Let's try what hapens.
12:27<@Belugas>hoo... yexo is going to add an email client to openttd :D nice !

13:08<eQualizer>Is there a way to make trains just go trough stations without stopping?
13:09<Yexo>give them a "via" order
13:09<Yexo>that is, if you don't want them to stop at your destination station
13:09<Yexo>if you don't want your trains to stop at stations in-between, give them a non-stop order
13:10<eQualizer>I'm just doing this network, and I was thinking about buildin stations where tracks are, and I noticed trains just stop there, and continue.
13:10<Yexo>use a non-stop order

14:34<Dalton>so when i screw up and now have no vehicles to build.. what's the easy fix
14:36<Yexo>what is your problem? Did you just start a new game? Did you go bankrupt?
14:36<Dalton>just a new game
14:36<Yexo>what year are you in?
14:36<Dalton>i was trying to fix the AI dying
14:36<Dalton>i did change that one time
14:37<Dalton>maybe i'm too far back in time to have vehicles?
14:37<Yexo>that depends on what year you are in and what newgrfs you use
14:37<planetmaker>1930 is save anyway
14:37<planetmaker>Before that... use 2cc and egrvts
14:38<planetmaker>some other train grfs may have early trains, too
14:38<Dalton>i didn't touch the trains
14:38<Dalton>i did go to 1900
14:38<Dalton>k i'll check that
14:38<Dalton>i guess it doesn't really matter what year it is
14:38<Dalton>ty for the help guys :D
14:40<@Belugas>[14:40] <Dalton> i guess it doesn't really matter what year it is <--- guessed wrong ;)
14:41<Dalton>sure did
14:41<el_en>here's how one should write a bug report:
14:41-!-Yeggs-away is now known as Yeggstry
14:43<Dalton>that did it..
14:43<Dalton>i'm very happy somebody else had the love for TTD, and glad it's being kept alive

15:10<goodger>let me see
15:12-!-toresbe [] has joined #openttd
15:12<Yexo>hello toresbe
15:12<toresbe>0.7.0-RC2 gives me this error:
15:12<toresbe>/usr/src/OpenTTD/compile/src/station_cmd.cpp:599: failed assertion ` == st->rect.bottom'
15:12<goodger>ah, my fifteen-year-old self is coming back to haunt me
15:12<Yexo>you compiled openttd yourself?
15:12<goodger>"The site should use XHTML 1.0 Strict & CSS 2.0, because unless you want to use SGML, run it through a 70s printing press, and then have the output displayed via a cine camera on a TV screen, there is no other way"
15:12<toresbe>Yexo: nope.
15:13<Yexo>can you reproduce that error?
15:13<toresbe>Very quickly. It freezes within one second of the opening screen.
15:13<toresbe>OS X, 10.5.6, Intel.
15:14<toresbe>Some kind of a bird sound comes on the speakers, and then crashbang.
15:14<goodger>I'm afraid I can't find the specific thread I mentioned
15:14<goodger>it might easily have been in a completely different PHPBB forum
15:15<Yexo>toresbe: do you know how to compile yourself?
15:16-!-Hirundo [] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.84 [Firefox 3.0.7/2009021910]]
15:16<toresbe>Yexo: Yes, but it would involve setting up a development environment on this Mac. It's a special-purpose machine, so it would not be social of me to do so...
15:16<Yexo>no problem
15:17<toresbe>I'll download the Nightly.
15:17<Yexo>did 0.7.0-RC1 gave the same error?
15:19<toresbe>nightly crashes too
15:19<frosch123>he, that is my assertion :)
15:20<frosch123>toresbe: does the error occur after you/a competitior built some station, or does it happen after loading a game?
15:20<toresbe>0.6.3 works
15:20<toresbe>frosch123: immediate upon startup
15:20<frosch123>nice, then please post the game on
15:20<toresbe>Not of a game, but of the program itself
15:21<Yexo>frosch123: upon startup = opentitle.dat
15:21<frosch123>you mean in the main menu?
15:21<frosch123>well, then post your opntitle.dat, but only after you found the modified one :)
15:22<toresbe>modified one?
15:22<toresbe>0.6.3 works with the same data files
15:22<SmatZ>toresbe: 0.6.3 doesn't have that assert
15:22<planetmaker>toresbe: don't be fooled be those guys :)
15:23<toresbe>I'm tired and easily confused ;)

15:27<Yexo>planetmaker: you can just as well ask frosch123 when he introduced that assert

15:28<toresbe>planetmaker: 0.6.3 works, 0.7.0-rc2 and up do not.
15:28<Yexo>toresbe: can you search your harddrive for opntitle.dat, and compare all of them?
15:28<planetmaker>Yexo: well... :)
15:31<toresbe>toresbe$ crc32 openttd*/*/*opntitle.dat

15:31<toresbe>4c5a0541 openttdRC2/data/opntitle.dat
15:33<Yexo>hmm, crc32 gives 9bf1eed0 for opntitle.dat on my system
15:34<SmatZ>same here, Yexo
15:34<SmatZ>9bf1eed0 that is :)
15:34<Yexo>toresbe: can you verify the checksums of the files you downloaded?

15:35<SmatZ>found it :)
15:36<toresbe>toresbe$ tar -tf openttd-data-sound-norwegian.tar | grep opntitle
15:36<toresbe>I guess I screwed up the tar file some time ago, then.
15:36<Yexo>do you know you can put all the data files in documents?
15:36<Yexo>that way you don't have to copy them to every instalation directory
15:37<Yexo>no idea what the exact directory is for mac osx, but that'll be in readme.txt
15:37<SmatZ>since 0.6 ;)
15:37<SmatZ>I think :-x
15:38*Yexo never used openttd before 0.6 :p
15:38<toresbe>What files take precedence, then?

15:39<@petern>opntitle.dat should still work, no?
15:39<SmatZ>it's mostly about openttd*.grf
15:40<SmatZ>petern: I am just trying to find why (if) it fails
15:40<toresbe>crashes anyway with the nightly, in the same way
15:41<frosch123>so 0.1.4 :) sounds like a task for smatz :)
15:41<toresbe>is opntitle.dat included in modern versions?
15:42<toresbe>there we go
15:44<toresbe>Doesn't crash if I rm the file in ~/Documents, but does if I don't.
15:44<SmatZ>probably there is somewhere incorrect savegame version for save data
15:44-!-DaleStan [] has joined #openttd
15:44<SmatZ>it crashes when loaded as regular game too
15:53<frosch123>maybe something with buoys?
15:53<frosch123>like a buoy part of a usual station or similiar
15:54<SmatZ>it seems savegame version 1 stores train station width in a different way
15:54<SmatZ>than version 0 and 2
15:54<frosch123>of course... what else?
15:55<SmatZ>hmm it's probably unsolvable by looking at savegame version
15:55<SmatZ>now I created a game in OTTD 0.1.4, and it had correct "OTTD-like" dimensions

15:55<@petern>does it load in 0.6?
15:55<SmatZ>so probably that opntitle.dat is broken
15:56<frosch123>petern: that assetion is part of the tileloop
15:56<@petern>probably doesn't come from 0.1.4, heh
15:56<@petern>does it crash in 0.6? :p
15:56-!-racetrack [] has quit [Quit: no. just, no.]
15:58<SmatZ>I think it was caused by incorrect savegame conversion from TTD savegame
15:58<SmatZ>in OTTD 0.1.x
15:58<frosch123>SmatZ: if it is caused by a train station, maybe recomputing trainst_w and trainst_h helps
15:58<@petern>is it worth it? heh
15:58<frosch123>why is that stored in savegame anyway...
15:58<SmatZ>but I thought official support for TTD savegames was added in 0.3 :)
15:59<@petern>is it a different intro game or was it really converted from ttd? :o
15:59<SmatZ>frosch123: I agree :)

17:58<loxs>hm, thanks Yexo... If I save some specific game rules in that save, will they be available on the dedicated server after that?
17:58<Yexo>loxs: yes, all game-relevant settings are stored in the savegame

18:02<Yexo> List of servers, you'll see that CyberKenny is using 0.7.0-RC1

19:53<Yexo>as soon as the game is loaded the game doesn't know whether the crash was caused by a faulty savegame or by a programming error
19:54<toresbe>What, specifically, is the problem with the file?
19:55<Yexo>I don't know, ask SmatZ for the details
19:55<@Rubidium>glx: then assume svn up --accept postpone
19:56<+glx>anyway updating a patch requires knowledge and time
19:59<toresbe>Yexo: I'll go to bed and check for scrollback. :)

20:24<welshdragon>my company is white
20:25<Brianetta>I joined your company, because, you know, I'd never done that before and it was new.
20:25<Brianetta>Then I lost connection.
20:25<welshdragon>and you deleted my bridge :(
20:25<Brianetta>I didn't delete a thing
20:25<Brianetta>Did it explode?
20:25<Brianetta>Was it demolished?
20:26<Brianetta>Or did we just desync?
20:26<Brianetta>I suspect the latter
20:26<Brianetta>and that your bridge never was, as far as the server was concerned.

20:56<@Rubidium>I'd say someone has, but we haven't seen him lately
20:57<fonsinchen>You might want to argue with me about
20:57<fonsinchen>especially about using glpk as additional dependency
20:57<@Belugas>IT'S SHITTY!!!
20:57<@Belugas>IT'S TOO REALISTIC!!!
20:57<fonsinchen>sorry, but it isn't
20:58<@Belugas>well... i'm arguing...

20:58<@Belugas>bummer :D
20:59<eMjay88>Rubidium: do you mean that 0.7 won't work on Ubuntu < 9.10 or that 0.7 will be included in 9.10?

20:59<Yexo>fonsinchen: it looks promising, but I don't have time to read such a big patch now
20:59<@Rubidium>it's quite likely that 0.7 will be included in 9.10
20:59<fonsinchen1>that's why I broke it up into 5 parts
21:00<@Rubidium>as they're leeching it from debian/sid
21:00-!-HerzogDeXtEr [~Flex@] has joined #openttd
21:00<fonsinchen1>well, that might solve the problem with the additional dependency for some, but we shouldn't rely on it.
21:01<@Rubidium>so it's yet another cargodest implementation?
21:01<Yexo>fonsinchen1: don't mix two discussions, ubuntu 9.10 will most likely include openttd 0.7
21:01<fonsinchen1>one that actually works
21:02<@Rubidium>fonsinchen1: and you know that because nobody reported bugs yet?
21:02<fonsinchen1>no, because it has a clear concept
21:03<fonsinchen1>which adresses all known intrinsic problems with previous attempts
21:03<fonsinchen1>actually it's not fully done yet
21:04<fonsinchen1>so you might as well ignore it for now - I just wanted to inform you about what I'm doing there.
21:05<@Belugas>it's big
21:05<@Rubidium>well... it won't work on platforms that don't have threads. That's what might be considered a big big big no-go
21:06-!-fonsinchen [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:06<fonsinchen1>I can serialize the threads
21:06<fonsinchen1>no problem
21:06<fonsinchen1>actually I use the openttd thread api
21:07<@Belugas>we have one?
21:07*Belugas hides
21:07<fonsinchen1>also you do the network stuff in a seperate thread
21:07<@Rubidium>using it: yes. Using it incorrectly: yes
21:07<fonsinchen1>and the loading and saving
21:08<@Rubidium>loading isn't threaded
21:08<fonsinchen1>Rubidium: what do you mean by incorrect here?
21:09<@Rubidium>the network stuff, saving and newgame check the return value of new and in case that no thread was made it runs the actually thread instead of ignoring it
21:09<fonsinchen1>That's a small detail. I can implement that
21:10<fonsinchen1>I don't have to run all of the computation at once either
21:10<CIA-1>OpenTTD: rubidium * r15844 /trunk/src/ (ai/ai_gui.cpp console_gui.cpp gfx.cpp gfx_func.h): -Codechange: allow text alignment to be forced so the console and ai debug output don't get swapped (those are untranslateable anyways)
21:10<fonsinchen1>I can stretch it over several OnTick_LinkGraph calls
21:11<@Belugas>have you started from the actual cargo dest (as much as concept, not code)?
21:11<fonsinchen1>I had a look at it, yes
21:11<fonsinchen1>but I found it too restrictive to actually use the code
21:11<fonsinchen1>except for the smallmap
21:14<@Belugas>impressively big piece

21:17<@Belugas>i'm wondering: demand_pax and all the others, could they disappear and be replaced by something more... open, more... hem.. flexible?
21:17<@Belugas>or maybe im not viewing it all...
21:18<fonsinchen1>I grouped them by relevant cargo classes
21:19<@Rubidium>and what when they collide?
21:19<fonsinchen1>the configuration settings only represent a subset of what could be done if the settings system was more flexible
21:19<fonsinchen1>then there is a hierarchy
21:19<fonsinchen1>passengers > mail > express > armoured > rest

21:20-!-HackaLittleBit [] has quit [Quit: Bye for now!]
21:20<fonsinchen1>good idea actually
21:24<@Belugas>settings.h is a bit of a mess, but i guess it's not really surprising with the CAPACITY_SV and such
21:24<@Belugas>watch out, i've spotted a few tabs in there
21:24-!-Hendikins|ZzZ is now known as Hendikins|SRA412
21:24<fonsinchen1>yes, these are temporary defines, so that I don't have to edit in 20 places when I change the savegame version
21:25<fonsinchen1>oh, I thought I cought them all ... I'll have a second look
21:28<@Belugas>the very last chunk of smallmap_gui, you removed the vehicle follow code
21:29<@Belugas>any reason why?
21:30<fonsinchen1>cargodest does it
21:30<fonsinchen1>I didn't change it
21:30<fonsinchen1>Basically I took the smallmap from cargodest and modified to suit my needs.
21:31<fonsinchen1>But I'll try to find out what the reason for that was.

23:33<eMjay88>Anyone have any ideas of how to implement a fifo train intersection patch?
23:34<eMjay88>I'm thinking you'd need to have a list of signals that enter a particular region, and then a simple queue that applies for that region

23:38<racetrack>eMjay88: I'm guessing currently it just does it in whatever order it loops through the trains right?
23:39-!-TinoDidriksen [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:39<Sacro>racetrack: yep
23:40<racetrack>that sounds right, attaching a queue to a signal block. trouble is that a signal block doesn't really exist as a discrete entity, its just the extent that ExploreSegment() goes looking
23:42<racetrack>maybe you could do something with ExploreSegment() or something similar to go looking for all the signals attached to this block, and from there have a queue of all the vehicles waiting to enter the block. that'd need to be hooked up to the track layout changing though
23:42-!-TinoDidriksen [] has joined #openttd
23:44<Sacro>sounds expensive
23:46<racetrack>yeah it does, doesn't it
23:48<racetrack>maybe then you could somehow join signals to each other .. eg put them in a linked list of all the entry points into a block
23:48<racetrack>then you're only doing heavy searching when you place them, and iirc that search already happens then anyway
23:48<racetrack>I don't really have the code in front of me so I'm just speculating right now, but thats sorta where I'd start looking
23:51-!-GoneWacko [] has joined #openttd
23:55<eMjay88>unless you make a SignalBlock entity
23:56<eMjay88>that gets generated when you place a signal
23:56<eMjay88>and contains a list of signals that are "entries" and a list of "exits"
23:56<eMjay88>that would also speed up regular signalling because you don't have to search everytime, right?
23:57<racetrack>well the search every time is to find out if there's a train currently in the block
23:57<eMjay88>is that every game loop? surely not
23:57<racetrack>though you could track that in the SignalBlock too
23:57<racetrack>nah only when a train wants to pass a signal
23:57<racetrack>or leaves a block
23:58<racetrack>and some other cases, but no, not every tick
23:58<eMjay88>well then, when a train gets to a signalblock entrance, it registers itself in the "waiting" queue and the signal block greens the first signal in the queue when it becomes empty
23:59<eMjay88>so I guess that moves the computation to when you're setting up the signals
23:59<Sacro>would be nice to redo the signalling system
