    Ok, under linux (Ubuntu intrepid 8.10)

    Download and extract the file from here to a folder in your homedir (I'll call it /home/%user%/o-ttd-data/ )

    http://download.transporttycoon.net/...d-graphics.rar

    Use the Add/remove util to install openttd

    open a terminal and run

    >sudo cp /home/%user%/o-ttd-data/* /usr/share/games/openttd/data

    Launch the game from the applications menu. Much easier than messing around with the OpenGFX and nightly builds.

    Right, I'm going to build my empire now... I don't expect to get much else done.. ever hehe

    In an amazing stroke of luck I copied it to the OTTD data directory and it worked, no need to decipher your cryptic instructions after all!

    Had no idea what you are using, but having just spent a good amount of time trying to get the various versions to work I thought I'd post a quick guide once I made it happen. Glad you've got yours working though, say goodbye to productivity.

    It seems to have advanced a little since the last time I tried to play it... in the end I just decided to sort through my ol games "pile" of CDROMs and loaded up the original.

    I have even bought a copy of "Locomotion" which appears to have been made as TT version 2. But it really annoyed me as it kept making the trains run on the right-side of the points, which made them crash...

    Ahh, the hours that can be usefully spent building up a jumbo jet/concorde to transfer coal from one end of the map to another... hmmm... I know what I'm gonna do this weekend.
