Hi.

Is it possible to add this patch to you`re pack?

viewtopic.php?t=64762

It makes making groups a lot easier. If i try to add it my self I get a lot of error messages about language packs and so on. Same problem if I try to add BuildWindow2 to a different game. I really want to combine these two in the same patch pack, but I cant seem to make it work my self :|

Thats strange. I cant get it to work. The same goes for using ctrl+scroll to change view when zoomed out.

Hello everyone!
I hope someone is still active with this Patch Pack since it has many functions I would love to play with.
Now I currently have a problem when I try to play this pack in a multiplayer session.
While I, as the server and host, can play just fine, my mates get dropped from any session as soon as I unpause the game with the error message:
"Network synchronization failed"

This happens every time, no matter how small or large the map is.
It also makes no difference if we play with NewGRF's or just vanilla OpenTTD.

We are playing online. The server has 212mbps download and 25mbps upload.
An unpatched version of the game can be played just fine.
All our settings are exactly the same on all ends.

Is there anything I am not considering or is it just not possible to play this patch Online?

+++Update+++

After an evening of tinkering I solved the issue, though not with the results I wanted.
The daylenght factor is causing the desync probelm. Everything above 1 (default) causes an immediate desync for the players.
I can play with my mates now, but we'd still like to have longer days.
So if anyone has a solution to this, I'd be very thankful.

This is a well-known problem with trying to use the daylength patch on multiplayer servers. As far as I know, though, nobody has been able to fix it.

After some further tinkering and tracing of the code that runs through while the server is running, I found out that the count of ticks is slightly different for every player that joins, even if the date in game is the same for everyone.
It appears that there is no tick synchronization in the multiplayer or if there is, it just isn't fine enough for the daylenght factor to work properly.
So for everyone who runs into the same problem, set the daylenght factor to 1 (default) and you can at least play multiplayer.

Doesn't seem to be an issue on JGR PP because I've played several games with people and the daylength was set beyond 1.

The day length code used in my patchpack is not the same as that in SpringPP.

In the case of SpringPP, the desyncs are probably because the variable SkipCounter is never saved, loaded or reset.

Anyone know the reason why when generating industries, it takes a lot longer then normal game, or even other patchpacks like JGR's?

Can the author of this patchpack explain how the industries are set to the daylength? I am missing this feature in other patch packs, and am wondering how he implemented it so that I can edit the source of JGR's and have this feature back.

Interesting that the Clipboard patch was added. I thought that was still buggy as hell. Is there a repository link for this patchpack, to whatever commit was used to add that patch? Is it stable?

Also regarding daylength, neither mine nor JGR's implementation cause any issues in multiplayer.

Thing is that this patch pack uses a slightly different version of the Day Length patch, which includes the option for "Scale INdustry output with daylength"

I guess that apparently causes desyncs in Multiplayer and its too different for JGR to impliment maybe? Plus its a bit outdated now since I guess it hasn't been updated in a while.
