03:45<dihedral>nice one petern :-)
03:45<dihedral>welshdragon, you can just download the 32bit or 64bit generic linux version (depending on your system)
03:45<dihedral>untar that and run it
03:46<dihedral>you do not need to use apt-get to install openttd ;-)

04:54<@petern>how do i call an lua function :s
04:54<@petern>i seem to only find examples for executing a complete lua file
04:55<dihedral>hello TrueBrain
04:55<Noldo>petern: why are you doing lua?
04:57<SpComb>petern: ensure it's on the top of the stack, and then lua_call or lua_pcall depending on what context you're calling it from
04:57<SpComb>petern: for executing a complete file, you just first use lua_load to push it as a chunk onto the stack, and then lua_pcall
04:58<SpComb>so it just depends on how you want to find the function
04:59<@petern>luaL_loadfile(m_state, name);
04:59<@petern>lua_getglobal(m_state, "init");
04:59<@petern>if (lua_pcall(m_state, 0, 0, 0) != 0) {
05:00<@petern>Error running function "init": attempt to call a nil value
05:14<@petern>okay, works with luaL_dofile()

06:40<@petern>so is it officially retired now?
06:42<TrueBrain>Eddi|zuHause: and if you now would be so kind to step into the fire, then we can celebrate with cake later on
06:42<TrueBrain>petern: I guess :)
06:43<@Rubidium>shouldn't something first come out of beta to actually be able to retire?

06:44<Eddi|zuHause>that didn't even get into beta :p

08:38-!-Chruker [] has joined #openttd
08:38<@Rubidium>the crappy osx stuff
08:38<Eddi|zuHause>it'd be silly if it falls back to null or dedicated driver...
08:39<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: my opinion is that it is better than segfaulting
08:40<Eddi|zuHause>it's better than segfaulting, but silently starting dedicated is worse than shouting "no video driver found"
08:41<Eddi|zuHause>in case you don't remember the increased support demand for configure non-silently announcing that it's going to build a dedicated binary, but people still ignoring the announcement

08:44<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: but how to shout to an user that doesn't look at stdout/stderr?
08:44<Chruker>Just need 33 more monitors
08:44<@Rubidium>when SDL/Allegro don't work?
08:45<Chruker>Does it put a notice in some system logfile?
08:45<@Rubidium>it's the exact same issue for missing files on unixy platforms
08:45<@Rubidium>Chruker: is that in any way cross platform?
08:46-!-andythenorth_ [] has joined #openttd
08:47<Chruker>I have no idea, but arent there any other windows-only or unix-only blocks in the source?
08:47-!-FloSoft [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]

08:47-!-andythenorth_ [] has quit []
08:48-!-maristo [] has joined #openttd
08:49<Sacro>this is why c# is better
08:49<Chruker>Are there yet C# compilers for other OS'es than windows?
08:50<Sacro>Mono works on Linux, OSX, Solaris
08:50-!-andythenorth_ [] has joined #openttd
08:50<Sacro>DotGNU works on many more
08:50-!-HerzogDeXtEr [~Flex@] has joined #openttd
08:50<Chruker>Fully or mostly compatible also?
08:50<@Rubidium>uhm, C# (Microsoft) or C# (That standard that isn't like Microsoft's version)?
08:51<Sacro>Rubidium: they are the same
08:51<Sacro>ECMA standard
08:53<TinoDidriksen>Chruker, if you want to do fancy GUI then C# is not that portable. But for cmdline tools and headless apps, C# is very portable.
08:53<Eddi|zuHause>Sacro: there's a warning to not rely on mono/c# because of increased possibility of patent threats
08:53<Sacro>Eddi|zuHause: ignore stallman
08:53<Sacro>there's as much a threat to GNUStep
08:53<Sacro>and the kernel
08:53<Sacro>and using Cocoa
08:53<@Rubidium>Sacro: Microsoft and standards, even if they make them theirselves, is a very murky area
08:54<@Rubidium>and I am FAR from certain that MS obeys it's own ECMA standard
08:54<Eddi|zuHause>"Standard" and "Implementation" always differ... microsoft or not...
08:54<TrueBrain>MS and standards? That would be a first, yes ;)
08:54<Sacro>Mono has no issues with stuff that I do
08:54-!-Chris_Booth [] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.85 [Firefox 3.0.11/2009060215]]
08:55<Eddi|zuHause>if the bugs are deliberate or not... if in doubt, people will adapt their programs to the implementation, not to the standard
08:55-!-Chris_Booth [] has joined #openttd
08:55<Eddi|zuHause>primary example: web pages vs. IE
08:56-!-Chris_Booth is now known as Booth
08:56-!-el[cube] [] has joined #openttd
08:56<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: but that is "some else's standard" vs "their 'standard'"
08:56<@Rubidium>I rather use OOXML as example
08:57<Eddi|zuHause>Microsoft C++...
08:57<Sacro>C# is done right so far
08:57<TinoDidriksen>They have no incompatible extensions to regular C++. Managed C++ and C++/CLR sure, but nobody uses those.
08:58-!-andythenorth_ [] has quit [Quit: andythenorth_]
08:59<Eddi|zuHause>TinoDidriksen: i have a documentation for a c++ compiler frontend for different dialects, and there's an insanely long list of dialect changes depending if in "microsoft" mode, or in "microsoft-bugs" mode
09:00<TinoDidriksen>That was the olden days before VC7.1...VC6 was horrible.
09:00<+glx>that reminds me MS Java vs Sun Java
09:00<Eddi|zuHause>glx: i thought they were actually convicted for that :p
09:00<TinoDidriksen>I use MSVC++ to write cross-platform C++, and have no issues at all compiling the exact same code on MSVC++, GCC, etc.
09:01<+glx>TinoDidriksen: if you want a "memory safe" code, check it on linux :)
09:01<Eddi|zuHause>TinoDidriksen: yes, if you try to ship around the incompatibilities, there is a common subset that works in most of the compilers
09:02<TinoDidriksen>There are no incompatabilities to speak of. Even MS's stdext::hash_map was drop-in compatible with GCC's __gnu_cxx::hash_map
09:03<+glx>iterators have some differences
09:03<TinoDidriksen>glx, I do check on Linux with valgrind. But MSVC++ is just great to develop in.
09:03-!-fonsinchen [] has joined #openttd
09:04<+glx>we had nice bugs in noai api because of small differences with iterators
09:04<+glx>worked well on linux/gcc, segfault with msvc
09:04<TinoDidriksen>#define _SECURE_SCL 0 ?
09:04<@Rubidium>heh, there's a MSVC++ that actually is able to find all occurences of a string in a subdirectory?
09:05<@Rubidium>it's probably better than Windows' built-in search in files tool though
09:05<TinoDidriksen>The IDE? You can do regexp search across the whole project.
09:06<+glx>intellisense doesn't like openttd :)
09:06<+glx>especially noai api
09:06<@Rubidium>TinoDidriksen: you haven't noticed that the IDE doesn't always return *all* occurences of a searched item?
09:06<TinoDidriksen>Intellisense does needs a kick in the arse every now and then; you often have to delete the *.ncb files to reset it.
09:07<Sacro>I use Visual Assist X for C++
09:07<Sacro>and ReSharper for C#
09:07<TinoDidriksen>Rubidium, no, haven't had that problem.
09:07<@Rubidium>TinoDidriksen: lucky you ;)
09:08-!-niblet [] has joined #openttd
09:09<Sacro>seems to have source code in it
09:09<niblet>Hi. I am trying to develop a modded version compatible with 7.1. I am trying to limit a citys growth based on certain parametres, how can I achieve this without causing desync?
09:09<Sacro>niblet: 7.1 isn't out yet
09:09<TrueBrain>somehow the answer: not, comes to mind ;)
09:09<niblet>1.7, lol
09:09<@Belugas>1.7 neither ;)
09:09<TrueBrain>0.7.1 he means, and you know that Sacro :)
09:09<TinoDidriksen>I'll admit there are some things in MSVC++ you have to work around (such as 2 very important defines, #define _SECURE_SCL 0 and #define _CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE 1), but once done, it's the best IDE out there and doesn't force you to write Microsoft specific code in any way.
09:09<Sacro>TrueBrain: i have old source :o
09:10<@Belugas>ho... a TrueBrain!
09:10<@Belugas>hello you
09:10*TrueBrain hugs Belugas
09:10<TrueBrain>sorry for leaving you all alone in that channel :)
09:10<@Belugas>no problem :)
09:10<@Belugas>i got out finally ;)
09:10<planetmaker>group hug! :)
09:10<Sacro>this source is oso old is it has an 'idascripts' folder
09:10<planetmaker>hello Belugas
09:10<@Belugas>hey mister maker
09:10<TrueBrain>Sacro: IDA .. hmm .. useful tool :)
09:10<Sacro>I think this is the one that ludde released first
09:11<Sacro>TrueBrain: this is the kind of thing that should be archived properley :P
09:11<TrueBrain>Sacro: so give it :)
09:11<TrueBrain>we only have binaries from 0.1.1
09:11<@Rubidium>Sacro: where did you get that zip?
09:11<Sacro>Rubidium: ludde perhaps :\
09:11<Sacro>it has the GPLv2 in it
09:11<TrueBrain>0.1.4 was the first source release we have indexed
09:11<Sacro>looks to be Windows only
09:12<TrueBrain>0.1.4 was the first MacOSX compatible version
09:12<TrueBrain>the rest is Windows only
09:12<Sacro>to 2003-08-14
09:12<TrueBrain>0.1.1 is from 2004-03-14
09:13<Sacro>this is well before
09:13<Sacro>LICENCE.TXT is 1999-02-03
09:13*welshdragon shoves Sacro in the shower
09:13<TrueBrain>did he work on it that long?!
09:13<Sacro>Looks like it
09:13<Sacro>he posted the url in here ages ago and I snagged a copy
09:13<Sacro>I think it was from him and not from Bjarni
09:13<@Rubidium>he just copied the license from something else I guess
09:14<Sacro>looks like it
09:14<Sacro>looks like development started december 02
09:15<Sacro>i wonder if it builds
09:15<TrueBrain>SmatZ: give it already! :P
09:15<Sacro>ooh, VC6
09:15*Sacro goes off to play it
09:15<welshdragon>niblet, please don't
09:15<welshdragon>it's rude
09:15<Sacro>niblet: make sure you pass it to clients>
09:16<niblet>pass what
09:17<welshdragon>wind :p
09:18<Sacro>niblet: anything that needs changing
09:20<niblet>and where/how would I mod the code in an order that lets me pass city info on to the clients?
09:21<Sacro>ah, it's the same as
09:21<Sacro>so nothing special :(
09:21<Ammler>are you able to compile it?
09:21<Sacro>not as yet :(
09:21<Sacro>it was written for the VC6 compiler
09:26<niblet>so assuming I cant acctually limit a towns growth without causing desyncs.. is there a way I can delete new buildings afterwards from the server side and relaying this to the clients somehow?

09:39<TrueBrain>niblet: OpenTTD is not that kind of game :) Clients do all the logic too .. the server only sends out commands made by users ... so you are a bit out of luck there :) (well .. modify the client too, is one solution ;))
09:40-!-andythenorth_ [] has quit [Quit: andythenorth_]
09:40<niblet>not a very good solution though
09:42<niblet>I thought there were some random fragments in the town expansion code. I therefor assumed only the server ran this code and then passed on the changes to the clients
09:43<TrueBrain>that is not how OpenTTD works :)
09:43<TrueBrain>random-seed on clients and server are in sync
09:43<TrueBrain>(and a desync happens when they no longer are :p)
09:43<niblet>doesnt sound very random
09:43<TrueBrain>what do you tihnk a random is?
09:43<TrueBrain>you believe a computer generated 'random' number is truly random?
09:44<niblet>I know
09:44<niblet>its just functions
09:44<@Rubidium>can you prove something is random?
09:44<TrueBrain>Rubidium: nope :) I can only give you the entropy of a randomize function :)
09:44<@Rubidium>and have you heard of "it's too random to be random"?
09:45<TrueBrain>haha :)
09:45<TrueBrain>even humans don't create random numbers :)
09:45<TrueBrain>well .. not truly random anyway :p

10:24<Eddi|zuHause>Noldo: it's actually pretty easy... benford's law says "most numbers start with a 1", and then it analyses the spread of the votes, and comes to the conclusion that there are too few 1's and too many 7's
10:27<Noldo>Eddi|zuHause: well that's about the same as a book where it takes dozen of pages for a guy to pick which pipe to smoke
10:29<Eddi|zuHause>Noldo: it also tries to associate these inconsistencies to methods of changing 1's to 2's to increase one person's votes and the abundance of 7's to reducing the other person's votes
10:30<Eddi|zuHause><TrueBrain> (for a number under the 10, 3 and 7 are most used) <- i'm not sure if that is only when typing, there it can be related to finger positions on the keyboard

11:27<TrueBrain>then you are out of luck .. but we told you that already :)
11:27<niblet>but I digged some and I've seen it done
11:27<TrueBrain>well .. maybe if you ask again in, say, 2 hours, we changed our minds .. I wouldn't bet on it though ..
11:27<niblet>check out "ex's goal - city mania" server
11:27<niblet>if no goods is delivered to a town it stops growing

11:33<niblet>he does.. Im on the server. it works :)
11:33<TrueBrain>it is a magic bit he flipped
11:33<niblet>he somehow deletes a house after its built if no goods is delivered last month
11:33<niblet>and only new houses.. not old ones that gets rebuilt into something else
11:35<TrueBrain>its a kind of .. magic!
11:35<@Rubidium>the only logical explanation for that would be a separate company that does those things
11:35<TrueBrain>a nice AI can do that ;)
11:35<niblet>there is no extra company
11:35<@Rubidium>niblet: then ask him, not us who don't know and are just guessing
11:36<niblet>he's not around or I would
11:36<niblet>I dont think an "ai" company would work long term either.. the rating would just drop until it couldnt delete anymore
11:36<TrueBrain>then the server just restarts the AI company :)
11:36<TrueBrain>that the server can do! :)
11:37<niblet>aye.. that could work
11:37<@Rubidium>or it's the fact that it's a tropical map which requires water+food for towns
11:38<TrueBrain>Rubidium: ssttt .. that would be silly!
11:38<niblet>yes, but he modded it.
11:38<niblet>once u reach higher population he added requirements to how much food, water and goods u need to deliver for growth not to stop
11:38<niblet>which is genious

12:47<LadyHawk>reliability 90%, each one costs 10 mil
12:47<LadyHawk>they make 2.5 mil a pop per year
12:47<LadyHawk>but i have to replace 1-2 every year cuz they keep crashing
12:48<niblet>go with trains instead then :)
12:48<Aali>90% reliability does not mean they have a 10% chance of crashing at every landing
12:48<LadyHawk>i dont have room to put any tracks
12:48<planetmaker>0.7% actually. Unless you have too small airports.
12:48<LadyHawk>the map is like 1/2 town
12:50<niblet>make tunnels
12:51<LadyHawk>i like how this 2x2 grid town road placement is done

12:54<niblet>3x3 ftw
12:54<LadyHawk>woo 2 more down
12:54<LadyHawk>doesnt 3x3 cause a 1 tile gap in the middle?
12:54<niblet>no, and even if it did its better with 1 tile gap than to have all those extra tiles spent on roads
12:54<LadyHawk>good point
12:55<niblet>when you use 2x2 then 5 tiles are spent on road for every 4 tiles of city
12:55<niblet>when you use 3x3 then 6 tiles are spent on road for every 8 or 9 tiles of city

13:11<niblet>to stop a city grom growing mr ex is deleting new houses immediately after they are built
13:11<niblet>"I delete them as server ...OWNER_NONE to be more precise, never had problems with desyncs this way."
13:12<niblet>now how and where in the code would I do this?
13:13<Eddi|zuHause>a) you send a docommand like everybody else
13:13<Eddi|zuHause>b) this sounds like an improper check in the clients (possible way to cheat)
13:14<dihedral>it would desync as soon as someone tries to do something with that house again!
13:14<dihedral>or transports passengers from those houses
13:14<TrueBrain>doesn't have to; houses are normally not owned by anyone anyway
13:14<dihedral>but the passenger number exists
13:15<TrueBrain>but yes, it sounds more like a missing validation ;)
13:15<dihedral>and if a new player builds rail where another player has a building....
13:15<TrueBrain>dihedral: clearly you missed something here ;) We can assume the house is deleted via a DoCommandP, which is sent to all the clients
13:15<TrueBrain>so all players don't have a building
13:15<Eddi|zuHause>dihedral: if the destruction is sent as a docommand, there is no desync
13:16<Eddi|zuHause>anyway, if the hacked server can do this, a hacked client can also do this, and this is cheating
13:17<Eddi|zuHause>(imagine someone destroying a town without having to worry about local authority rating)
13:17<niblet>but but.. dont stop this from working! I need it for my imba citybuilder server
13:17<TrueBrain>Eddi|zuHause: it is possible only clients accept such packet, but that servers don't :)

15:02<SmatZ>why is it a problem?
15:03<SmatZ>it's an advantage to have newer model earlier than others :)
15:03<LadyHawk>because i have a scenario with a town starting at 0 pop unable to build roads
15:03<LadyHawk>so i play on fast forward
15:03<LadyHawk>every second or two i get one of those popups
15:04<SmatZ>[21:03:23] <LadyHawk> so i play <== umm, do you really "play"? :)
15:04<SmatZ>are you making some video of that?
15:04<LadyHawk>yeah, the town grows and gives me an opportunity to integrate my transport stuffs into it nicely

15:07<LadyHawk>this way you go in debt until the city is big enough to sustain some form of transport to get your money back

15:09<LadyHawk>but you still pay something
15:09*SmatZ shuts up to please petern
15:09<LadyHawk>and it takes 2-3 years for the town to grow
15:10<LadyHawk>you stay in debt, you go bankrupth, so the longer you have to wait, the further and faster you'll lose money
15:10<LadyHawk>i think i've just realised something interesting though
15:10<LadyHawk>if the tile the town is placed on doesn't contain a road, its growth is severely slowed
15:11<SmatZ>hmm does it grow at all?
15:11<LadyHawk>only a tiny bit
15:11<LadyHawk>say 1 house every 4 years
15:11<SmatZ>I thought no roads will be built if town's tile is blocked

15:39<SmatZ>maybe not
15:44<planetmaker>SmatZ: in German language there is. In English not as clear, I *think*
15:47<Fuco>they are like Party of European Socialists
15:48<Fuco>i think they are even members or something
15:51<SmatZ> they are listed here, but not here ...
15:51<SmatZ>they are
15:51<SmatZ>as "Direction - "
15:52<SmatZ>translating things like that is silly :-)
15:55<dihedral>does anybody in here use zattoo?
15:55<dihedral>and could possibly tell me the name of the 3.3.4beta deb package?
16:03<Ammler>yes and no :-)
16:04<Ammler>I just downloaded the package from
16:09<dihedral>yes, but what was the filename
16:09<dihedral>you cannot download the file via the website anymore for linux
16:09<dihedral>but the file is still there :-P

16:10<Ammler>that was long ago and a rpm

16:20<Eddi|zuHause>it doesn't seem to carry privately owned channels... only the public ones
16:23<Ammler>it very depense on the country.
16:24<Ammler>in ch, there are many German private channels, but not in Germany, afaik.

17:27<dihedral>sure it happens that i have to do a weekend or something like that, but then i get the time off :-P

17:28<dihedral>frosch123, not true

17:33<frosch123>but e.g. here you can choose between 35 and 20 holidays per year with a rate of about 4% more money per 2% more work. so easy guessing which option one chooses, if he has to pay a credit for his house :)

17:40<andythenorth_>TrueBrain: meh
17:40<frosch123>ok, s/customers/consultants of custom/
17:40<dihedral>for one thing the child is perfect, for another thing, parents dont see the need to bring up their kids properly but complain when teachers are to harsh
17:40<Eddi|zuHause>frosch123: you can't believe some of the stories my mother tells me...
17:41<andythenorth_>customers pay and are reasonable. We fire the ones who don't / aren't. I'd prefer that over parents every day. No way I'd teach
17:41<andythenorth_>my mother was a teacher. and my dad.
17:41<dihedral>a friend of mine is a teacher, she took a knife away from a kid who was playing around with it, and when the mother came to collect it again, she was outraged
17:41<dihedral>"it's only a knife!!"
