#rockbox log for 2005-11-25

00:00:17Wettamiconn: you were right. It works... much better -_-
00:00:51Wettbut something's strange
00:00:59amiconnBtw, if you're playing .rvf files made for archos you need HZ/67,
00:01:25amiconnbut when tailoring .rvfs for H1xo, HZ/70 are optimal
00:01:43Wettyep but it was just a test video
00:01:47hshahcan anyone please answer my question - where is the code for the remote usb logo kept?
00:01:51hshahwhich file?
00:02:06amiconnWett: yes of course
00:02:31amiconnThe toolchain needs adjustment anyway (different default frequency, different resolution)
00:02:41Wettalready done :)
00:03:16Wettbut about timer : what is the time I give it ?
00:03:47amiconnIt's the number of base system clocks
00:03:58amiconn...between 2 interrupts
00:04:23amiconnBase CPU clocks I mean
00:04:26Wettok, so I should not give it the same that on archos. But... When I gave it the frequency/fps, it was 10 time slower
00:05:27LinusNhshah: you don't have the source?
00:05:35LinusNuse grep
00:05:41preglowwe should make #rockbox-logo-questions
00:05:56hshahwhat do you mean LinusN?
00:06:11amiconnWett: Just give it CPU_FREQ / 67 (or whatever timing you want)
00:06:21LinusNgrep is a tool to find a text string inside files
00:06:25amiconnCPU_FREQ is a constant, it's the base CPU frequency
00:06:41Wettconstant ? and what about frequency changes ?
00:06:51hshahi used the windows search thing, but i still can't find which file its in, coz i dunno what im looking for
00:06:54XavierGr_hshah try a text search fo r string that might relates to the usb icon
00:07:04amiconnThese are handled in timer.c
00:07:15hshahlogo.c has the logo for the main screen...
00:07:24amiconnThis handling is the reason why all higher frequencies are an integer multiple of the base

00:09:59LinusNhave you updated your cvs?
00:10:00amiconnWow... I just compared compilation of the x11 sim under Linux and under cygwin
00:10:02hshahone for the main iriver unit...
00:10:14hshahi think ill delete the logo.c and try it again...
00:10:26amiconn...on the very same machine, with Linux having the additional handicap of running under VMware
00:10:46hshahLinusN - i update my cvs every time there is a change...

00:12:13amiconnWell, VMware 5 is pretty fast
00:12:15LinusNhshah: the same bitmap is used for both main and remote
00:12:23amiconnhi Wett
00:12:41hshahLinusN - "Adapted and commited Markus Kaufhold's remote hold icon on statusbar patch for iriver ; generic logo handler (now it's possible to have a different USB logo on main screen and on remote), made the quickscreen behave as it was before"
00:12:44LinusNhshah: see the usb_logos[] array
00:13:07amiconnWett: You can't use the video_frametime value from the RVF-header verbatim, you need an adjustment similar to the adjustment done for Ondio
00:13:51LinusNhshah: create a new image and fill in the usb_logos[] array
00:13:53amiconnCPU_FREQ for iriver is very close to that of the archos recorder, but not identical => video and audio would slightly drift apart over time
00:14:02Wettyes I have to deduce the base fps and to calc the new value
00:14:15amiconniriver: 11289600; recorder: 11059200
00:14:45Wettok. It has a sync() function, but I should not use it too much times
00:14:47amiconnI would just convert video_frametime based on the reduced ratio of the 2 frequencies
00:14:49Wettwow, i see
00:14:59Wettyep, sounds good I did for the Ondio
00:15:13hshahLinusN - i can't really code in c, so you might have to explain this a little bit... there are two usb_logos[] arrays defined...
00:15:21amiconnThis 625/576 ratio is reduced from 12000000/11059200
00:15:40LinusNhshah: the first one is for text displays
00:15:48amiconnSomewhere I already did these calculations...
00:16:02LinusNhshah: sorry, the second one
00:16:10hshahLinusN - ahh rite...
00:16:15hshahok - lemme try that now
00:16:20*amiconn is looking for a note
00:16:27peturwhy does cvs say "move away xxx it is in the way" with a C in front of the file? I haven't changed anything locally :\
00:16:36Wettit seems I have to take back my old calculator
00:16:41LinusNchange the one inside the #if NB_SCREENS==2
00:17:05amiconnWett: Rather small numbers when reduced: 11289600/11059200 == 49/48
00:17:19LinusNpetur: you have a local file which wasn't in cvs when you checked out the first time
00:17:22Wettwoohoo, fast

01:00:47preglowjust ask
01:00:53LinusNamiconn: is there supposed to be a visual difference between backlight on and off in the sim?
01:01:00amiconnNot yet
01:01:09amiconnIt just prints messages to the console
01:01:18amiconn...but it's planned
01:01:33amiconn(win32 first, since it's way easier)
01:01:33BenacoolWhen you copy the daily builds in my player is there a thing to do to backup the config ?
01:01:41BenacoolWhen I*
01:01:50Bagderits not easier in win32
01:01:53amiconnit is
01:02:16amiconnWe have 2 separate backlights, but the x11 window shares colours between the 2 displays
01:02:30amiconnThe win32 sim uses one display bitmap per simulated display
01:02:35amiconnEach has its own palette
01:02:55LinusNamiconn: i tried running the win32 sim in wine here, and the backlight went off after 17s
01:03:06Bagderwell, 1 - you can make the x11 do that or 2 - make the x11 one use different palettes on the different areas
01:03:08amiconnIf someone would adjust the x11 sim to use 2 separate window...
01:03:13LinusNand none of the numpad keys works :-(

01:04:52lamedhey all. congrats for h300 audio, linusn. (starting to feel a tiny-little bit of sorry to only have an h120).
01:04:53amiconnBagder: Probably we need the split anyway, for using highcolour in one window and palette based drawing in the other
01:05:09LinusNamiconn: i can't press a-b
01:05:14Bagdermost likely, yes
01:05:14lamedslasher / i? here?
01:05:29Bagderor have both use highcolour
01:05:31XavierGr_lamed: you wanted me something yesterday?
01:05:54amiconnLinusN: Ooopsors, it seems the numpad mapping for that doesn't work
01:06:02amiconnYou can use 'Ins' instead
01:06:13Benacoolby the way what is the command (if they are one lol) to do the "markun: message" for exemple ? I don't use IRC very often lol
01:06:31amiconnBagder: If both are highcolour, backlight simulation will be heavy...
01:06:49markunBenacool: just type it :)
01:06:57XavierGr_later all.
01:07:00BagderI wouldn't care if the simulation is "heavy" really
01:07:03lamedxaviergr: wait.
01:07:05markunMaybe you have auto completion with tab
01:07:08Benacoolmarkun: ohh
01:07:08amiconnBagder: My idea for backlight simulation is as follows:
01:07:30amiconnThe b&w displays are readable without backlight, so backlight on/off will just change the palette
01:07:56Benacoolmarkun: ok thanks ;-)
01:08:00amiconnThe colour displays are pitch black without backlight, so the bitmap will shown/hidden accordingly
01:08:18Bagderamiconn: sounds fine to me
01:08:29LinusNamiconn: i used Ins to bring up the main menu, then i entered the general settings menu, and after that no buttons work anymore
01:09:08amiconnWorks fine here
01:09:17amiconn(both cursor keys and numpad)
01:09:18lamedxaviergr: i've patched the usb cable without even cutting the power lines, just stripping them down and soldering a piece of line. now i get no sync at all (?!) but the player shows bootloader usb mode/charges with the cable. (no sync even when not charging). I guess you've got no idea so i just wanted to mention that.
01:09:46LinusNamiconn: try using "5" to enter the menu

02:21:58lamedpreglow: i'm going through the tracker every now and then. most stuff are just plain OLD, or already in the source... so it's not such a major deal.
02:22:12preglowlamed: i'm not really into this part of rockbox, but to me it just seems like an awful lot of code for a small feature
02:23:02preglowi can see the need for this feature, i've just never bumped into it myself
02:23:42preglowdamn, i'd completely forgotten about my patch
02:24:00preglowperhaps it's time to blow the dust off it again
02:25:05preglowlamed: and i'd really, really like it if this didn't introduce any new settings
02:25:12XavierGr_well I made a battery benchmark plugin, works like a charm but I didn't got a single review or comment for it. I guess I will have to live with it. It is just that sometimes I feel that all my (little) work is in vain, if noone actually is going to use them. I guess I will have to live with it.
02:25:16preglowwe can't keep adding settings for every new feature
02:25:20preglowit's already grown too big
02:25:28lamedbut the new wps functions caused a big upload hit... preglow: for now it's the _only_ part i'm into rockbox... and i know it seems like lots of code, but i had to make a new driver function ( _offset functions) so it had to be added to the screen_access list as well... other then that it's just the new options in scroll menu and some little code in list.c that calculates where to put the line.
02:25:38lamedpreglow: why?
02:25:47XavierGr_lamed: sorry but I guess that you've run out of options about the USB/sync cable.
02:25:50preglowlamed: like i said, we've already got a zillion options, and it's starting to become too muc
02:26:18preglowlamed: why does this need an enable option, btw? i thought it had a special key bound to it anyway
02:26:27lamedpreglow: it's in the scroll menu. there are only about 4 items there. it's pretty convinient place to set those options.
02:27:05preglowoh well
02:27:10preglowi might try it out tomorrow
02:27:17lamedpreglow: you can set it to scroll the lines out of view (-helps to keep things in the same order) and the other option is to set screen scroll step size.

02:29:04lamednoo... let me explain
02:29:39lamedtake a long artist name folder, like : "elvis prestly - <song name> "
02:29:49pinkutankLinusN hows the port going
02:30:25LinusNpinkutank: i can play music, but the h300 can't run reliably at full cpu frequency
02:30:26lamedif you use "screen scroll out of view" set to yes, then if you'll scroll artist name out of view, you can see only " - <song name> " nicely arranged.
02:30:34lamedif you would set the option back to no,
02:31:35pinkutankLinusN: wish I could help somehow, but I don't know any programming.
02:31:56lamedthe longer lines would be displayd correctly like "-<song name>", but the shorter song names would be displayd "vis prestly - song" which would cause things to look in a bad mannar.
02:32:04pinkutanki decided to stay with my h120 for a while, I painted it, it will have a silicone case next week, maybe a better battery in a month
02:32:11pinkutankI dont like the screen of the 300
02:32:22pinkutankwish it was like the ipod nanos
02:32:27LinusNlamed: so why would you set it to "no"?
02:33:00pinkutankif you dont like your screen going away
02:33:08lamedbecause if you use it on scatterd files, with sometimes long sometimes short names, you wouldn't want to see blank lines!
02:33:19LinusNpinkutank: i don't like the h300 either
02:33:45pinkutankI hope someone comes up with a decent player soon
02:34:02lamed(and for now, the lines won't scroll into view if they are scrolled off the view. that's because of a problem with the scroll_thread)
02:34:28pinkutankhows x5? , similar screen to h300?_
02:34:33DreamTactix291i like the H100 more than teh H300
02:34:39DreamTactix291X5 has inferior screen to the H300
02:34:39LinusNpinkutank: i don't know
02:34:42DreamTactix291but better overall design
02:35:14pinkutankoh lol than no x5 for me either
02:35:23DreamTactix291i like my H140
02:35:24lamedif you'll use it both on album folders and on scatterd files you'll see the diffrance. linus - was i clear enough?
02:35:26pinkutankwish ipod video had fm and decent recording
02:35:29DreamTactix291colour LCDs are overrated for audio players
02:35:36LinusNDreamTactix291: inferior? how?
02:35:45DreamTactix291LinusN: lower resolution
02:35:47pinkutankits pixelated
02:35:49DreamTactix291same as the H100 AFAIK
02:35:56LinusNlamed: not entirely clear, i guess i'll have to try it
02:36:05DreamTactix291H300 is 220x176
02:36:24pinkutanksee the ipod 5th gen, it has a really nice screen
02:36:29*LinusN has ordered an x5
02:36:35pinkutankif you seen a nano, think that, much bigger
02:36:40pinkutankoh gosh
02:36:50DreamTactix291i'm not big on the the ipods
02:36:51pinkutanklinus you gonna port?
02:36:55DreamTactix291nice screen or not
02:36:59LinusNpinkutank: hopefully
02:37:03pinkutankwhy dream?
02:37:18DreamTactix291cheap looking design and touch navigation
02:37:30DreamTactix291personal opinion though
02:37:34pinkutankI think the blacks dont look cheap
02:37:50DreamTactix291they still scratch easily
02:37:52pinkutankbut the last4th gens I looked at had dflimsy looking wheels
02:38:01lamedWell i'll just go back on hassling everyone about it the next time i'll manage to get some intenet access... probably tommrow.
02:38:06pinkutankyes they scrath
02:38:20DreamTactix291my H140 is still in pristine shape
02:38:22lamedpinkutank: i want to see your design.
02:39:03pinkutanknot finished yet
02:39:12pinkutanki'll change the rating handler
02:39:27pinkutankimplement play/pause etc thing
02:39:29pinkutankand codec
02:39:36pinkutankprobably otmorrow or saturday
02:39:43LinusNpinkutank: looks good
02:39:53DreamTactix291i like
02:39:54pinkutankthat genre line cycles
02:40:07pinkutankgenre/year/ hz bitrate
02:40:16lamedpinkutank: looks like someting i might use... but i was talking about the player.
02:40:29DreamTactix291i keep my WPS super basic
02:40:50lamedpinkutank: it seems like it's a very small font isn't it?
02:41:04preglowLinusN: what? your next project?
02:41:11pinkutankand that 3 triangels is actually saying no shuffle no repeat, but I'll change it a bit, seems bit bulky like this
02:41:19pinkutankits an 8 pixel font
02:41:33lamedpreglow: are you going through the tracker now?
02:41:33pinkutankI'll modify it for bigger ones if you like it big
02:41:43preglowLinusN: i was wondering what you were going to turn to next ;)
02:41:45LinusNlamed: another idea for the file browser: strip the first part of the file if it's the same for all files
02:41:50preglowlamed: not really, how?
02:41:53pinkutankwhat do oyu mean my design the player? the painted h120 you want?
02:41:58lamedpink: i just think that the middle line would be too small for a bigger font.
02:42:45pinkutankthan I'll change it for the bigger version, its no problem releasing 2
02:43:15pinkutankis there a way to create aniamted bmps?
02:43:23LinusNpreglow: yeah, x5 seems like a nice player
02:43:23pinkutankI tried them with alternating lines but didnt work
02:43:34DreamTactix291i like the X5 almost as much as the H100s
02:43:38preglowLinusN: i actually agree. have you gotten the bdm back from ac yet?
02:43:38DreamTactix291only thing i'd miss is optical
02:43:51LinusNwe won't get it
02:44:02lamedlinusn: yeah, i remember that idea too from somewhere in the wiki. i think it would be better if the screen_scroll pixel setting might be saved in the dir cache. that way you could save the offset position of every folder.
02:44:08LinusNhe'll return the money instead
02:44:20preglowin which case all is well
02:44:28LinusNi guess
02:44:30preglowhe broke it or what? ;)
02:44:45LinusNi just can't see what he's going to to with the bdm
02:44:49lamedpinkutank: i'm sooo out of the wps area. isn't there are ways to make any font align itself by it's size?
02:45:01preglowgod known, intense sessions of fun, problably
02:45:06pinkutankalign to what
02:45:14LinusNpreglow: probably :-)
02:45:39lamedpreglow: i'm just binding both select and mode keys to toggle controls in star game plugin... didn't wanted that to be missed.
02:45:44pinkutankif there is a way to implement aniamted bmps in wps, I'd like to use it for charging, I've never seen a wps do it before
02:46:19preglowthink i'll delete the 'press and hold on button for hold' patch, old and not very useful
02:46:21pinkutankbtw, who was the sokoban noob here
02:46:22lamed(preglow: there's already a pretty good star game fix that makes it much bigger and more comfortable on the hX00)
02:47:28pinkutanksomeone kept saying cant go past lvl 3 on sokoban
02:49:08XavierGr_how much a bdm costs?
02:49:31LinusNroughly $150
02:49:44lamedpinkutank... lol..
02:50:09*lamed wonders if xaviergr player's bricked.
02:50:20XavierGr_that's not so much. If only I had the knowledge I would gladly give this much for it.
02:50:44Kyl3level 3 was hard
02:50:46lamedxaviergr: are you programming on the simulator or not at all..?
02:50:48XavierGr_no just wondering if I could ever help on porting something, (after a lot of studying first though)
02:51:02Kyl3my player has like 3 things wrong with it i have to RMA it
02:51:14pinkutanklol kyl3 was that you, the sokoban fool?
02:51:19XavierGr_what do you mean on the simulator? I program both for the simulator or the target.
02:51:26Kyl3but 3 was hard
02:51:35pinkutanktry 10
02:51:48Kyl3i will when I get my h340 back
02:52:12XavierGr_Now that I mentioned it I have a very old NAPA 128 MB flash player.
02:52:12pinkutankwhats there to port
02:52:13XavierGr_It sucked big time
02:52:19pinkutankthere is h10
02:52:28XavierGr_but I guess it is perfect for a guinea pig!
02:52:46pinkutanklol youre going to port to a napa
02:52:54pinkutankI'm oging to sleep
02:52:57XavierGr_imagining it
02:53:21pinkutankI was planning sleeping at 1 am +- 3

02:53:51XavierGr_preglow, as the DAC guy here what is best on recording from line-in: 1) Gain from rockbox or 2) gain from a pre-amp?
02:54:05lamedxaviergr: what do you mean "or the target", you compile a code, copy it and see if it works? -you can't get real gdb else, right? no serial port gdb mentioned on the wiki. max thing you can do it "catch mem", righet?
02:54:11preglowXavierGr_: i'd say preamp, if it's good quality
02:54:29preglowlamed: h1x0 has got a serial port
02:54:36preglowlamed: no one's bothered to write a gdb driver yet
02:54:36Kyl3Oh and a suggestion for Rockbox
02:54:50preglowlamed: plus, you'd need some small additional hardware
02:54:51XavierGr_it's an 100euros 6 channel mixer
02:55:02preglowXavierGr_: well, i'd say go for that anyway
02:55:07Kyl3will Rockbox get rid of the 9999 file/2000 folder/200Mb/2hr record celings?
02:55:24preglowXavierGr_: i don't think the iriver preamp is anything you'll want furhter aquaintance with
02:55:41Kyl3thank god... i hit it everytime i record classes
02:55:43lamedpreglow: that's what i ment. so the only way i could get to be more serious about rb is with a gdb wiggler. no other ways?
02:55:44XavierGr_lamed I meant that I program on the sim if it is applicable else I test the code right on target. Did you meant if I code the player from a bdm? od course not.
02:56:15preglowlamed: more serious? you can code perfectly well with no hardware debugging aid
02:56:19Kyl3and with the hd spindown feature, there will be no more HD spinups every 2 mins
02:56:33preglowi have neither bdm nor serial port connection
02:56:58XavierGr_actually you can code very well even if you don't have a DAP :p
02:57:01lamedxaviergr: yeah that's what i've thought. how did you studied more about the hardware?
02:57:13preglowlamed: for the code you write, debugging in the sim will do very well

02:57:32preglowit's worse for us poor sods that work on code that needs hardware specific features :/
02:57:37XavierGr_what hardware? I just told you that I don't use a bdm or anything hardware related.
02:58:11XavierGr_preglow I gusee then that you write low-level test programs to see how the hardware responds?
02:58:29lamedpreglow: that's how i made the screen scroll patch / fast inc/dec sound settings patch / star game fix patch. but i was wondering, how do all the (serious?) programmers know what to do? i mean... they wrote the sim.
02:58:31pinkutankI couldnt sleep
02:58:41pinkutankI just remembered something
02:58:48pinkutankyou guys have to port for the gmini 402

03:00:51preglowpinkutank: then i recommend you get one and start working, no one else seems to be planning it
03:00:52pinkutankIt even has video output to tvs playing divx
03:01:06DreamTactix291my PMP-120 does that too but it's ridiculously picky about files
03:01:48lamedpreglow: ahhh.. you could do that on your comupter..? don't you need to know the hardware for that? all written in C on the sim and just works on the player?
03:01:54pinkutankif< pinkutank< programming:1 buy gmini 402 and try>
03:01:58XavierGrpreglow: excuse me, you said that every pre-amp must be better that iriver pre-amplification?
03:02:17preglowlamed: that's what i said, i need to use the hardware, it's a lot of assembler from time to time
03:02:36pinkutankit decodes divx realtime : good cpu
03:02:39pinkutank2.2" screen

03:03:04pinkutankcan be had for 200$
03:03:12DreamTactix291by divx i'm assuming you mean MPEG-4 ASP
03:03:28preglowis there any other kind of divx?
03:03:42DreamTactix291divx 4.0 and after as MPEG-4 ASP encoders
03:03:47pinkutankmpeg 4 sp
03:03:47DreamTactix291as is 3ivx, XviD, etc
03:03:50pinkutanknot asp
03:03:50XavierGrI just blowed my ears trying to set a good settings with the preamp, now they ring like hell. I should have lower all signals before putting the earphones in my ears! :x
03:03:59DreamTactix291SP isn't common at all

03:04:13pinkutankXvid and Divx is sp

03:04:20DreamTactix291they are ASP :)
03:04:30DreamTactix291advanced simple profile
03:04:32pinkutankthen I'm stupid
03:04:38pinkutankok its asp
03:04:40XavierGrpreglow any exprerience with preamps before?
03:04:43DreamTactix291i just know audio and video codecs :P
03:04:45preglowXavierGr: very little
03:04:50DreamTactix291but not enough to program :(
03:04:55pinkutankit even has a game gear emulator
03:05:13DreamTactix291would be useful if i played video games
03:05:22DreamTactix291but i gave them up years ago lol
03:05:32pinkutankshould i say even good without rockbox? hmm no that would be blaspheomus
03:05:32XavierGrIt seems that I cant really get better quality compared to the iriver itself. I must try harder.
03:05:48lamedpreglow. a question. the original iriver fw could inc/decrease audio speed. that means somewhere in the hardware it's possible. do you know your way, say to this place, to make it work? (just trying to understand the relation between your work and why _do_ you need a remote gdb at all)
03:06:12preglowlamed: i could have playback speed adjustment working in half an hour, but the internals of rockbox makes it a bit difficult
03:06:33preglowwithout doing a Nasty Hack, that is
03:06:33XavierGrpreglow: also I was wrong about the mic setting in the iriver fw. Rockbox is way better on this too. I just didn't know that there are 2 "Gain" options in rb.
03:07:14preglowlamed: i _don't_ need a remote gdb
03:07:30preglowi'd like one, but i don't need one
03:07:59XavierGrnow that I mention it: why are there 2 gain options in recording? ADC l/r and the one in recording screen?
03:07:59preglowright now i'd sure as hell love one, i love these elusive crashes
03:08:02lamedwow. could you guid me to where and what should i read about that kind of work? (will i get a plain "go through the source" respod)
03:08:19preglowlamed: you mean about codec and audio coding?
03:10:07lamedhmm, seems rather huge subject isn't it? right now i've wanted to be able to make a "line in open" option, so i could wier a discman through my player and to an amp, not to loose voltage when Y splitting an entrence.

03:10:41preglowlamed: you need a good background in maths, for one
03:11:07preglowi just picked up digital signal processing by myself over a number of years after becoming interested in synthesizers
03:11:53preglowlamed: you mean a passthrough option? that's not hard
03:12:06preglowi believe rockbox already does that
03:12:35preglowin recording mode, that is
03:13:22lamedyes, but i mean when you want to mix something with your player audio.
03:13:48preglowmix the cd audio with sound from the h1x0?
03:15:12lamedright. if i'll Y split an auxilury jack, i'll get about 75 perecent of the volume. - from what i know, this is because of voltage drawn from every source.
03:15:31preglowdepends on the equipment
03:16:10pinkutankbtw , gmini 400 are already broken in

04:50:01DMJCI've been wanting a 1gb gfx card for a while now
04:50:18DMJCI want to see entire planets rendered in realtime
04:50:21DMJCin a game
04:50:31DMJCand that takes 1gb of gfx ram to do properly
04:50:39Paul_The_NerdThat doesn't take 1gb of GFX memory
04:50:44Paul_The_NerdYou can stream the textures from the HD
04:50:52Paul_The_NerdAnd that's what a good deal of it is used for.
04:51:56DMJCyou trying to render a planet or a solar system
04:52:05Paul_The_NerdYou said planet.
04:52:08DMJCand how much detail etc are you going for?
04:52:18Paul_The_NerdBesides, are you talking about seeing it all at once?

04:52:52DMJCplanets having real scale
04:52:53Paul_The_NerdI mean, at the scale that a planet appears round, you can make up the surface detail with good application of bump mapping
04:52:56Paul_The_NerdOr better yet, pixel shaders.
04:53:17DMJCtalking about being able to go from space
04:53:26DMJCto 1 metre above the surface
04:53:31DMJCand running around
04:53:42Paul_The_NerdYes, but as you zoom the rendering field is clipped, and detail can then be loaded from disk realtime as you zoom in.
04:53:44DMJCwith trees
04:53:49DMJCand objects etc
04:54:10DMJCoh and the game has to track the entire solar system in realtime
04:54:13Paul_The_NerdWith a good HD access speed, and a decent processor, you could *easily* pull that off respectably on a 256 MB Geforce 5 series
04:54:18Paul_The_NerdOr ATI 9XXX series
04:54:26Paul_The_NerdTracking it is easy
04:54:35Paul_The_NerdSince you don't *see* the solar system, all you're tracking is points.
04:54:45Paul_The_NerdYou don't have to calculate all the triangles offscreen, there's absolutely no benefit in that
04:54:58DMJCisn't that what backface culling does?
04:55:09DMJCcuts out what's not going to be visible
04:55:18Paul_The_NerdPretty much.

04:57:54DMJCmost of the VS ideas are from Wing Commander
04:58:07DMJChence the name Vega Strike... WC1 was set in Vega sector
04:58:30DMJCwas originally going to be a privateer mod till some OSS guys thought they'd get sued
04:58:41DMJChence the now 3? projects
04:58:54Paul_The_NerdYeah. EA has the rights to Privateer, no? Which makes it dangerous.
04:58:59DMJC - geez that card is huge
04:59:04DMJCyeah EA has the rights
04:59:16DMJCdoubt they'll do anything tho.. they know the project exists
04:59:34Paul_The_NerdWell, they may be waiting to sue until there's money to get from it.
04:59:35DMJCwe've contacted people within Origin when it still existed
04:59:50Paul_The_NerdYeah, but Origin was a lot nicer.
04:59:57DMJCheh money from an OSS project... hehehe
05:00:21Paul_The_NerdOr at least, until there's enough work done that they can sue for all the work, and then use it for their own purposes? Free programming

05:01:20Paul_The_NerdI actually liked WC: Armada quite a lot
05:01:21DMJCbout 20,000-40,000 polys per model
05:01:30DMJCwe don't use the ships in the game out of respect

06:00:02AnInternetUsergod no1 can see e-sarcasm
06:00:18CheeseBurgerManIt doesn't convey very well... ;)
06:00:36Paul_The_NerdEspecially considering how many people *seriously* ask it
06:00:55AnInternetUseroh the title kinda gives it away i would think
06:01:00AnInternetUsermaybe everyone just doesnt read
06:01:09CheeseBurgerManI read.
06:01:21CheeseBurgerManI saw someone come in and ask when it would be released.
06:01:40*Paul_The_Nerd shrugs
06:01:56*CheeseBurgerMan does as well.
06:02:12AnInternetUseractually isnt already out for most players?
06:02:34CheeseBurgerManWhat do you mean by "most" players?
06:02:41CheeseBurgerManMost DAPs out there, no. ;)
06:03:03Paul_The_NerdIt's "out" for several Archos players
06:03:05AnInternetUserlike the ones it is supposed to work for
06:03:12AnInternetUserarchos and iriver h1xx
06:03:13Paul_The_NerdIt's... well on its way for the H100 series of iRivers
06:03:34AnInternetUseras i read it the games arent being developed right now
06:03:46Paul_The_NerdWell, it all depends on if someone wants to do it.
06:03:48AnInternetUserfor h300
06:04:12Paul_The_NerdThe "core" people are often "core" because they're working on the important matters of 'making things function' ;-)
06:04:15AnInternetUseri wish someone would make something work all the way
06:04:19ashridahAnInternetUser: the H300 isn't quite stable enough to work on, there's a couple of hardware issues to hunt down.
06:04:21AnInternetUserso i could have a reason to install it
06:04:33AnInternetUseryeah thats what i thought
06:04:49*ashridah notes the developer with the hardware to do the job has a dayjob as well
06:04:57ashridahand a family
06:05:24AnInternetUserhe should hire some geniuses like bill gates
06:05:31AnInternetUserexcept he has no money
06:05:35ashridahand since rockbox's only recently been available for the H300, new developers will take a small amount of time to get used to the general architecture and functionality of rockbox before they can be effective
06:05:55ashridahhiring someone like bill gates wouldn't get him any closer.
06:06:03AnInternetUserthats not what i mean
06:06:05Paul_The_NerdI think he meant "Like bill gates, he should hire people"
06:06:07ashridaheven if bill gates WAS an embedded hardware developer
06:06:29Paul_The_NerdI think there's some pretty effective people working on Rockbox anyway
06:06:56AnInternetUserso once it gets off the ground the progress should actually be relatively fast
06:07:05ashridahAnInternetUser: if you believe throwing people at a problem solves a problem faster, i might suggest you read 'The Mythical Man Month' for a thorough debunking of the view :)
06:07:22AnInternetUseri am not some software developer :(
06:07:30AnInternetUserjust an internet user
06:07:33AnInternetUserthat has an h320
06:07:41ashridahyou don't really need to be. many of the lessons apply to non-software development tasks
06:09:21ashridahbut yeah. throwing someone else in wouldn't get it done any faster, given the current progress.
06:09:54CheeseBurgerManYeah, it'd be too hard to get him to understand exactly what's going on.
06:10:06ashridahand there's plenty of intelligent people to do the other essential components, and when we get right down to it, a *lot* of the complicated work has already been done on the H1xx
06:10:16Paul_The_NerdIt's also the fact that right now, it's primarily a one man job until the bootloader is solid, and the hardware variation is known, right?
06:10:17ashridahCheeseBurgerMan: not hard, time consuming.
06:10:50CheeseBurgerManashridah: I stand corrected.
06:10:53Paul_The_NerdIsn't a lot of the work just adapting the display code after that?

06:13:03ashridahPaul_The_Nerd: it doesn't seem to have been too hard to get black and white, and they've already displayed colour stuff. once you've got accurate information, it's a matter of crunching the details (and, of course, determining a useful way to store colour internally)
06:13:33Paul_The_NerdAre they gonna do user defined colors?
06:13:38Paul_The_NerdLike, for the text and backdrop?
06:14:07ashridahnot sure.
06:14:14ashridahi think things are slowly heading that way
06:14:19*Paul_The_Nerd shrugs
06:14:22ashridahwith the theme stuff
06:14:51Paul_The_NerdI've got an H120, and as far as I'm concerned, once any sort of compression is in for recording, I'm not eager for anything else. Heh
06:14:58Paul_The_NerdThough Wav2wv gets the job done anyway
06:16:15Paul_The_NerdThough if that whole pixel positioned WPS and or multiple-font WPS comes into play, that would probably excite me greatly. But that's like "I wouldn't care if it never shows up, but it'd sure be neat" kinda thing.

06:29:34Membrillosomething like this may be more effective

06:31:17Paul_The_NerdI'm not an expert, but I strongly suspect that it'd be *possible.*
06:31:38Membrilloi reckon it would be awesome. OTF cd reading or ripping
06:31:53Paul_The_NerdI imagine it wouldn't be as awesome as you expected
06:32:15Membrillowhy do you imagine that
06:32:15Paul_The_NerdI suspect it'd end up fairly slow.
06:32:29Membrilloyeah, but you still wouldn't have to have a PC
06:32:45Paul_The_NerdI suppose
06:32:52Paul_The_NerdIt seems rather a special case, though
06:32:56Membrillofor example i have a lot of bus trips with friends who have discmans. I could borrow their cds and rip straight to my hdd
06:33:03Membrilloon the bus
06:33:29*Paul_The_Nerd shrugs
06:33:57Membrilloi know USBOTG hasn't been tackled yet, but I think portable CD readers should be looked into
06:34:02Paul_The_NerdIs the drive battery powered?
06:34:08Paul_The_NerdIt looked like it required AC power.
06:34:19Membrillobattery or USB i think
06:34:34Paul_The_NerdAh, but I don't think the H300 can deliver USB power
06:34:36ashridahMembrillo: a discman exports a data interface a pc can use?
06:34:43ashridah(usb data interface, i mean)
06:35:13ashridahaah, i see, you're planning on taking your own drive
06:35:19Paul_The_Nerdahsridah he's linked a external CD drive that's USB interface, and "requires no drivers under etc etc"
06:35:41ashridahMembrillo: i'd suspect the cpu would be too taxed to be able to stop jitter from creepign in, tbh
06:35:52ashridahPaul_The_Nerd: i missed the link
06:36:11Membrillohmmm, so you think the H3xx would struggle?
06:36:45ashridahMembrillo: i know transferring files over usbotg currently is slow as hell on iriver's firmware. i don't know how much of that's sheer cpu grunt limitation tho
06:36:54Membrillowell possibly the files could be transfered as lossless then compressed to MP3 (or other lossy codec) after. Of course that would take ages but would it work?
06:36:59ashridahit just depends if there's some way to avoid issues with jitter
06:37:11ashridahthat doesn't just involve keeping a perfectly regular read rate
06:37:27ashridahyou probably wouldn't be able to encode at the same time, i'd say.
06:38:01Membrillook, so what about transfering as lossless then encoding from the iRiver? apart from taking ages
06:38:25ashridahnot unfeasable.
06:39:03Membrilloso there could be possible workarounds if you were patient
06:39:34Paul_The_NerdOr just find the cheapest laptop you can, and use that instead. :-P
06:39:51Paul_The_NerdFrom time to time you'll find laptops cheaper than that external CD drive
06:39:58Paul_The_NerdAnd they're much more useful.
06:40:22Membrilloi guess
06:40:50Membrilloan external CD drive is a lot more conviniently sized than a laptop though
06:41:00Paul_The_NerdI suppose
06:41:01ashridahi'd just record directly from the discman, but i'm betting it doesn't have optical out, and the H3xx sadly does not have optical in, so you're going to get some amount of loss
06:41:11ashridahyou could, of course, just stop committing copyright violation :)
06:42:08ashridahMembrillo: does that cdrom drive support ASPI type raw access, or whatever one uses to rip these days?
06:43:04Membrillolet me check if its on that page
06:43:11Paul_The_Nerd I was thinking about that.
06:43:37Paul_The_NerdI was gonna say something like "It may only be useable for data discs" but I didn't know if that would just sound silly, as I don't know much about audio CDs and how they're ripped / handled /etc
06:44:24Membrilloi did find it runs on 8 AA batteries...
06:45:07Membrilloah, it has firewire... if only iRiver had a firewire port
06:45:37Membrillocant see anything about access types
06:46:15Membrilloalthough it has a headphone jack, implying it can read audio cds
06:47:29 Quit noel_sad_song ("CGI:IRC")
06:50:54ashridahPaul_The_Nerd: well, some of them handle burning, so they must have some kind of raw interface
06:51:16Paul_The_NerdI dunno
06:51:31ashridahMembrillo: it's more the usb access than what the drive can do. reading audio cds vs reading data isn't too much different
06:51:42Paul_The_NerdIt's not necessary that they do.
06:52:00Membrillook sure
06:52:47Membrilloyou can get about.... 1-2mb\s out of USB2 can you not? what sort of speeds would you need to get encoding as you send across
06:54:19Membrilloor is it the stability of the USB connection
06:57:00ashridahMembrillo: if you've got enough cpu grunt AND enough bandwidth to the usb controller, which the H3xx may well not have

08:56:03ashridahokay. got a link? generally, a panic is when the firmware detects something that just doesn't make sense.
08:56:49ashridahso it'll be tied to things like the illegal instruction interrupt handler, and a bunch of asserts will trigger it, ie, when some variable exceeds a predefined maximum
08:56:54Acksawsoftware work
08:57:24Acksaw Panic handler Done Same, 90% Done
08:57:29ashridahyeah. i see.
08:58:01ashridahit's part of the infrastructure rockbox provides. mistakes happen, and having asserts and whatnot that detect unexpected stuff helps protect the player from damaging itself

09:06:15Paul_The_NerdHow do you adapt the ipod ones for an iRiver
09:06:24Paul_The_NerdLike, is there an easy way to get the plug off to switch the pins?
09:07:30ashridahPaul_The_Nerd: yeah, it's called "scissors"
09:07:37Paul_The_NerdI considered that
09:07:43Paul_The_NerdBut I don't know where to get a replacement one.
09:07:46ashridahduct tape and soldering do well :)

09:08:10Paul_The_NerdAh, so "forget using the proper plug, just use "permanent" methods to attach the new one?"
09:08:22ashridahnew plug?
09:08:34ashridahhm, are the plugs different as well as the wrong polarity?
09:08:37*ashridah hasn't looked
09:08:49Paul_The_NerdYou're saying cut the wires halfway, and switch there?
09:09:05ashridahi wouldn't do it halfway, if you screw it, you want enough to try again with a new plug
09:09:39Paul_The_NerdIdeally I'd like to *just* try it with a new plug, but I don't know where to find one.
09:09:57*Paul_The_Nerd doesn't know exactly what to look for.

11:16:28webguest45will the H300 port be finished at the same times as teh H100 (by concentrating on getting the H300 port up to H100 stage) or will equal resources be placed in both? just wondered, thank :)
11:16:46Acksawread the tpic
11:16:51Acksawit will be done when its dones
11:18:50Acksawi need an english bomberman rom
11:19:32webguest45well, if you'd actually answered my question i might have sent one via email.
11:19:39tucozwebguest38, as Rockbox is always in development, you can not expect it to be finished. What you can expect is a release some time in the future.
11:19:47webguest45not to mention being rude
11:20:17Acksawi wasnt being rube
11:20:18tucozA new development snapshot is available as soon as someone makes a commit to cvs
11:20:24Acksawi was answering your question
11:20:33webguest45i understand that, i was just simply commenting on how developing resources were split between the two efforts, not about a time frame
11:21:04webguest45and yes by "finished" I meant an official release of sorts ;)
11:21:50webguest45reason i asked was it just seems the H100 port has cooled off a bit, while the H300 is developing rapidly.
11:22:41ghode|afkThere will be no split i guess, developers will work one what they want to, no one target is given any priority
11:22:57linuxstbwebguest45: Rockbox doesn't have "developing resources". There are just people that work on what they want to work on, when they want to work on it.
11:23:05Acksawi think that there is a priority on getting the audio working on the h300
11:23:13ghode|afkno there isn't :)
11:23:15Acksawas that will be enough for most people
11:23:54webguest45ah i see
11:23:55ghode|afkit could be weeks or months before audio is working on the h300, just because linus has been busy this week, he does have a life :)
11:24:06webguest45of course
11:24:41Acksawjust saying..
11:24:44tucozwebguest45, the stuff that is being done to the h300 port, has already been done to the h100 (i.e. the hardware stuff). When that is done, I believe the h300 is up to par with the h100 fairly quickly.
11:25:03Acksawi think getting just the mp3's playing is the main thing linus is working on
11:25:27linuxstbBut there is also new hardware on the h300 that Rockbox doesn't take advantage of yet - the colour LCD and USBOTG.
11:25:35ghode|afkwell linus has music playing, but i guess he hasn't commited it yet because it still has some bugs
11:25:49Acksawlike the buttons going wild
11:26:42CtcpIgnored 1 channel CTCP requests in 0 seconds at the last flood
11:26:42*Jungti1234 ߿ ƿ̽ϴ.(Dinner)
11:26:49ghode|afkso basically it will be done, when its done
11:27:13webguest45are teh CPUs in the H100 and H300 the same? if so does that mean the H300 has some kind of colour video driver acclearator thingymabob that the H100 doesnt have? (excuse my ignorance) as if both players were equally capable then would it be possible to put a colour LCD in an H100 player?
11:27:32Jungti1234hey markun
11:27:46Jungti1234Give 'Gulim' to me.
11:27:55markunthe .fnt?
11:27:56Acksawmore than likely the h100 cannot handle a LCD screen
11:28:09tucozwebguest45, same cpu
11:28:17markunAcksaw: mine has a LCD :)
11:28:26tucozmine too :)
11:28:32Acksawi meant the colour one
11:28:43markunI guessed that :)
11:29:15webguest45because that would be one hell of a mod
11:30:10tucozwebguest45, but probably not worth it. The h300 is what you would want if you were up for a mod like that.
11:30:27tucozAs that is basically a h100 with a colour lcd.
11:30:40linuxstbYes, it would probably be easier to add digital I/O to the h300 than change the LCD in a h100.
11:30:44webguest45I know that the LCDs are easy to replace, no soldering needed. I suppose it would depend on whether the H100s were limited by the LCD hardware alone or the lack of something on the mainboard
11:31:36markunJungti1234: I'm sending the file over IRC, can't you receive it?
11:32:00Jungti1234I was going to receive it, don't come.
11:32:21webguest45I want an H340 crammed into an H120 body with optical!
11:33:08tucozwebguest45, I am not sure if the x5 has optical i/o. If so, then that would probably be something like that
11:33:48Jungti1234thanks markun
11:33:54markunbut it will be of no use to you without the unicode patch (which doesn't work for H3xx)

12:04:09amiconnI mean, the changes in the LCD driver aren't large, are they?

12:09:42markunwhy not?
12:09:52amiconnThe problem is that all the files would use their cvs history

12:11:05amiconn... would *lose* their cvs history
12:11:32linuxstbmarkun: My understanding is that svn does a delete/create operation when renaming files, but it copies the old history to the new file. So yes, svn should make it easier to rename things.

13:45:34pregloware we waiting with integrating unicode because of size issues, or just to not do too many big overhauls at once?
13:45:52B4gderI have in fact a tiny bootloader that inflates a gzip image
13:45:57B4gdernot for sh, but anyway
13:46:33B4gderhow much do UCL and gz differ in compression ratio?
13:46:35preglowwe already have a decompressor for sh1, no?
13:46:38amiconnI wouldn't introduce another compression scheme
13:46:57preglowB4gder: perhaps a bit, in favour of gzip
13:47:00amiconnI want to reuse rockbox.ucl and just tackon the decompressor
13:47:09B4gderwell, I thought it would depend how much extra room you get
13:47:13preglowa lot of the point with ucl is the fast decompressor
13:47:36amiconnucl has a fast and tiny decompressor, and the compression ratio is very good
13:48:28amiconnMy local builds: ajbrec.ajz: 200022 bytes rockbox.ucl: 122715 bytes
13:48:57preglowhow's that for gzip?
13:49:06B4gdergzip is only very little smaller
13:49:06preglowjust for a quick comparison
13:49:18markunamiconn: would you be so kind to try out the updated unicode patch before I sumit it to the tracker?

13:50:10amiconnThat's gzip -9
13:51:29amiconnPerhaps I'll have a shot at the decompressor.
13:51:55amiconnImho we will need uclpack in cvs then, and some perl magic for the build system

13:53:25amiconnLike, running scramble from a script, and if it returns with firmware-too-big error, run make in another sub-dir (the decompressor), and then re-run scamble with the new .bin
13:53:30markunBagder: you were talking about replacing some of the 'sed' code with perl code in the makefile for the sim once. It would help me a lot because FreeBSD's sed doesn't like the code at all
13:54:09ashridahrofl. did you people rely on GNU sedisms? :)
13:54:22*ashridah kept on running into that with the assignments he had to mark this year
13:54:47ashridahdamned students wrote them on linux machines, and never bothered to test on solaris, even tho i TOLD them that the GNU toolchain has more features than solaris's
13:55:20B4gderit is not a GNU extension

13:56:20ashridahinteresting. would have expected freebsd to support SUSv2
13:56:55B4gderah, no

13:57:21ashridahhm that's a new one on me
13:58:34markunamiconn: the unicode2.diff was almost 9MB because I updated and added some fonts :)

16:37:16B4gderdoes it rock? ;-)
16:37:24eli_shererit does...
16:37:33eli_shererit's RockPaint if you heard of it...
16:37:48eli_shereronly for H300.. sorry
16:38:07eli_shererbecause it's color
16:38:09*B4gder needs a color LCD target
16:38:31lamedlinusn: here?
16:38:41eli_shereri made myself a mission to make as many color plugins i can for the h300!
16:38:52CassandraYou and me both, Bagder.
16:38:57B4gdereli_sherer: that's the spirit!
16:39:43eli_shererh300 owners are getting bored by the current plugins because their all b/w except "cube" lol
16:39:56LinusNlamed: yes
16:40:21B4gdereli_sherer: well, you can of course colorise them
16:40:22CassandraSee this is the problem - owners of colour MP3 players obviously have a short attention span.
16:40:35LinusNCassandra: :-)
16:40:52CassandraPersonally I use Rockbox for playing music. Weird, I know, but there you have it.
16:41:13B4gderyou freak ;-)
16:41:15LinusNCassandra: you're getting old, that's it
16:41:37eli_shererto play music we have the original OS
16:41:57CassandraLinusN, I've known that for years. ;)
16:42:09LinusNmany, many years...
16:42:29CassandraPah - I think you're about the same age as me.

16:43:24eli_shererLinusN: there are rumors you mangaed to hear something on the H300 with RB...
16:43:53eli_shereris it released yet?
16:44:04*Cassandra wonders if "Why isn't fontforge written in C++ really is a *Frequenty* asked question.
16:44:06lamedlinusn: remember saying something about new menu system? was it just a thought to the future or something that happening?
16:44:40LinusNlamed: refresh my memory

16:47:18markunB4gder: buy a Gigabeat if you need colors, then I'm not lonely..
16:47:37B4gdernot a bad idea
16:47:44B4gderso many new fun targets to consider
16:47:46*Cassandra will take any colour MP3 player anyone gives her.
16:47:49eli_sherernothing beats H300s
16:48:02markunGigabeat + rockbox will beat it
16:48:14B4gdergigabeat does have much more impressive specs
16:48:16eli_shererwhats a Gigabeat
16:48:33markunAlthough it doesn't have radio or digital out or lcd remote..
16:48:43tucozthis might be a stupid question, but does the gigabeat have a fpu?
16:48:54markunno, it doesn't
16:49:07B4gdermost h3x0 users have no lcd remote either
16:49:37markunbut for the gigabeat it's not even possible I think.

17:02:45lamedi'm almost positive it was _your_ idea... maybe i'm wrong. it does seems like a good way to have the avrage user just renaming files though. arranging by numbers at the start of filename. nm.
17:02:52Jungti1234What is 'Gain'?
17:02:55preglowLinusN: hard to translate? the user himself has to deal with that by calling the menu file name what it's called in the current locale
17:03:07Jungti1234It marks by dB.
17:03:22lamedpreglow: yes but then what about changing languages?
17:03:33tucozThe way linuxstb made it? I think that works great, but maybe it is not the right way to do it.
17:03:54eli_shereri think the current menu is perfect though it is important that it would be arranged or have GUI

19:45:52webguest43thank you
19:46:02markunhope it works
19:46:14webguest43i'll try right now
19:46:16markunit doesn't work on H3xx btw..
19:46:24webguest43i have h120 :)
19:47:25webguest43btw, do you know how to convert back the rb files to bmps?
19:48:05tucozwebguest43, I think you have to make a screendump for that. But.. I am not sure
19:48:21tucozdo you mean the splash btw?
19:48:31webguest43someone made a thread about that
19:48:39webguest43so i posted mine but
19:48:43*amiconn noticed that screendump doesn't dump the remote lcd...
19:48:44webguest43i lost the original bmps
19:48:54webguest43right, i noticed that too :)
19:49:08webguest43well, actually my splashes are for the main one
19:49:47webguest43i used to replace the originals with mine but got tired of doing it since new sources come out everyday :p
19:50:03webguest43thought about making a patch but dont know how :(
19:50:16tucozThat is quite easy
19:50:54webguest43making a patch that replaces the splashes?
19:50:56_FireFly_webguest43: if you use cvs your changes didn't get deleted unless the particular sources didn't get modified on the place which you has modified
19:51:36_FireFly_webguest43: you can also simply make a patch when using cvs
19:51:50webguest43i've heard about this cvs update -dP or something but not clear on how to use it
19:52:00webguest43and how would i make the patch?
19:52:35tucozdo you use cvs?
19:52:36_FireFly_with cvs simply cvs diff -u ><your-patch>.patch
19:53:03webguest43yes i use cvs
19:53:19webguest43no i mean, what do i write on the patch file?
19:53:30webguest43all i have is the rb version of my splashes
19:53:51_FireFly_what do you mean with write on the patch file ??
19:56:14_FireFly_webguest43: checkout the latest version from cvs -> replace the logo with yours -> run following command in the root of the sources: cvs diff -u > my-logo.patch (my-logo is only an example filename)
19:56:52webguest43so if i do that, i get a patch file with everything i've patched so far?
19:57:55webguest43nice, i'm gonna try that right now :)

21:38:18CassandraGot my remote back too.
21:40:04*Cassandra wonders why amiconn has submitted a patch.
21:42:24XavierGrLinus asked him to do so.
21:43:04*Cassandra wonders why Linus asked him to.
21:43:38XavierGrit's related to H300s LCD
21:43:53XavierGrI think
21:44:03CassandraThe odd thing is that amiconn has write access to CVS.
21:44:17CassandraHence the confusion over the need for a patch submission.
21:44:32XavierGrI know that, but they didn't want to commit it, just to test
21:44:57XavierGrso Linus could go to the tracker and test the patch. Then amiconn update it e.t.c
21:45:35CassandraAh, right.
21:46:47CassandraI was going to commit a new font, but I can't figure out how to make it proportial rather than monospaced.

23:25:52lamed_<preglow> amiconn: i was just meaning there's no poing in initialising the variables with default values, since the settings system will initialise them anyway | I agree. it can only mislead someone to think this really was the place to change default value. it mislead me, but it just was too boaring to even notice until reading up on global_settings.
23:26:30preglowyeah, and it wastes some code
23:26:44lamed_tiny fragile, but sure.
23:27:09preglowbut btw
23:27:09lamed_could i offer any help with desciphering my code?
23:27:21preglowit _might_ be done this way to supress gcc warnings
23:27:32preglowof the type "variable xxx might be used uninitialised in this function"
23:27:47preglowgcc can't tell that settings will always be parsed first
23:27:50lamed_nah, should it say that?
23:27:56preglowyeah, i think it would
23:27:58preglowfeel free to try it
23:28:10lamed_can't.. don't have the dev pack here.
23:28:41preglowmy tree is a bit broken at the moment, so has to wait before i can try it
23:29:04lamed_(acctually i do have it, i've got cygwin installed on the player and the setup.bat hacked to always install the registry values - meaning i can work from it.)
23:30:12preglowthat's pretty clever
23:31:59lamed_regarding to " <_FireFly_> with cvs simply cvs diff -u ><your-patch>.patch " - I really _do_ think i should start that wiki dev tip page. took me a long time to get to the simplest command of " cvs update -dP &> cvsupdate " to see exactly what the hell just happend...

23:32:35linuxstblamed_: Doesn't cygwin have a scrollbar ?
23:33:26lamed_linuxstb: it's like 3-4 lines more then the view. there's a way to define higher "max_line" integer, but i don't remember how.
23:34:44lamed_and anyways you steel need the cvs update in a seperate file, to go through all the C's and make sure of the M's in the right files...
