Anyone able to give me a direct link to the DL for the graphics please? And an idiots guide on where to stick them, Im having a slow day :p
ok the time it took me to reply to that makes it look like I don't have anything to do now
I meant a slow mental day, I dont have time to play it lol. Gonna bang it on my memory stick while you knowledgeable people are about to help me! lol
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/ )
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
Thanks TZA, what makes you think I use Linux? lol... or are you trying to make my brain explode? :D
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! ;)
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.
Played it this weekend... I dont get it, seems very booring after a while... did I miss something?
Yes, the love of a simple perfect design which is like an addicts. hehe
