[2020-08-27 01:51:25] <Z-Man> Armanelgtron: Ah, my google didn't find that old post. Sneaky, it changed the language a little. "I'd" -> "I would".
[2020-08-27 04:14:22] <Lucifer_arma> Z-Man: also, when the voltage regulator on an alternator is broken, it generates from about 10V to 17V, so they're not high voltage devices

[2020-08-27 16:08:20] <Armanelgtron> Z-Man: small mistake, language file says 0 is automatic and -1 forces it to always be native size. It checks if columns is <= 0 instead of == 0
[2020-08-27 16:24:42] <Z-Man> Ah yes, that was the intentional other end of the exception for small resolutions. You're right, -1 should also get that ignored.

[2020-08-27 17:23:13] <Z-Man> Lucifer_arma_: Yep, you'd have to push the thing to start, or tolerate that it may hop backwards a bit. The easiest construction for an electic motor that can start in the right direction if you do have some external controller would be a three phase motor. If your alternator has a three phase mode, it should be possible to use it as a three phase motor.
[2020-08-27 17:23:30] <Z-Man> How is it even possible that it has both modes?
[2020-08-27 17:25:08] <Z-Man> I mean, sure, you can just not connect one of the three phases, and the coil you're not using won't be causing any losses (apart from the dead weight).

[2020-08-27 17:32:18] <Z-Man> Don't worry about low initial acceleration. Electric motors start with extremely high torque at low/no rotation speed. You will probably have to limit the power input at low speed. Physics says that power = acceleration * speed * mass, so in theory, from standstil, you don't need any power to get arbitrary initial acceleration.

[2020-08-27 17:34:35] <Z-Man> In practice, you get ohmnan losses in the wires and your wheels spin out. And even in theory, with finite power input, you still only can reach finite speed in finite time, of course. Conservation of entergy and stuff.
[2020-08-27 17:41:16] <Z-Man> Question, probably for Lucifer_arma, maybe guru3: Do you have any idea why some of the HUD position/size settigs are tConfItems and thus stored in user.cfg? SCORE_LOCX, SCORE_LOCY, SCORE_SIZE, FASTES_*, ALIVE_*, PING_* are what I mean.
[2020-08-27 17:42:10] <Z-Man> FASTEST_SIZE and FASTEST_LOCX were both wrong, but any correction to them doesn't have an affect on old users, because the value from user.cfg wins.
[2020-08-27 17:42:34] <Z-Man> Oh yeah, the _GAUGE_ settings as well.
[2020-08-27 17:46:07] <Z-Man> That failed fork used that to make the HUD editable, IIRC.
[2020-08-27 17:51:57] <guru3> I believe those are my fault, things implemented in 0.2.7.x
[2020-08-27 17:52:23] <guru3> I think they were probably put in user.cfg because they affected what the user sees
[2020-08-27 17:53:38] <guru3> also my old dev files kind of make it look like there was only user.cfg
