PostPosted: Sat 19 Dec 2009, 12:42    Post subject:  OpenTTD 1.2.1 - open source Transport Tycoon Deluxe
Subject description: Rails And Roads
 

OpenTTD is an open source clone of the Microprose game "Transport Tycoon Deluxe", a popular game originally written by Chris Sawyer. It attempts to mimic the original game as closely as possible while extending it with new features.

Tested in P412, P431 & pUPnGO2012

Update 20120911: Static build (uclibc/tinyX11) of newer version produced: Openttd 1.2.1 & Timidity 1.13.0 packages.
They might run on many versions of Puppy. Build only tested with Xvesa - if you are running Xorg it might not run.

Thanks for doing this, it's my son's favorite game, and now armed with a USB stick he can run it anywhere in the house Smile

For the bifocal challenged, open up the openttd.cfg with a text editor and change the medium size font to a larger number 18 - 20 :). The openttd.cfg is in the .openttd folder in the root directory.

This all looks very complicated.

I used to play this game in ubuntu but can't figure how to get it working on puppy.

I downloaded sources (xz/lzma archive) and extracted it to my /mnt/sda1/downloads

That's all i managed i have no idea what to do now.

Do you know of a simple way to get this running ?

I'm running slacko 5.3.3 frugal install btw.

I tried both links from 'goingnuts' but neither work and are old too.

Thank you

Sorry for the spaces in between each line. It's an old habit of mine. I know it annoys some people for taking up too much space.

Question Exclamation
Try downloading this first: Download a static build of OPENTTD_1.2.1 build by using uclibc/tinyX11
Above link is valid and should work...if so then
Unpack the downloaded archive fx. by using below command:
Code:
tar -xzf openttd-1.2.1_static.tar.gz

Now you have a directory named openttd-1.2.1_static.
Copy all the content to the root of your system fx. by using below command:
Code:
cp -af openttd-1.2.1_static/* /

OR create a pet-package by fx. using below command and install via normal packageinstaller:
Code:
 dir2pet openttd-1.2.1_static

Restart X + start game from menu "Fun/OpenTTD" or run
Code:
openttd

Best to start the game first time from a command line as this will report any problems (if any)...

I did everything you said and made the pet instead. Which i never used to know how to before so thanks for that. It's much simpler than i thought. Anyway everything installed fine no errors or anything. Restarted X, started openttd in the console and no errors then i guess the game opens but i just get a black screen and nothing. I had to hold the power button and reboot.

Remember that this will only run under Xvesa, so when you exit X (control+alt+backspace), run xorgwizard, and select Xvesa. (That's covered all the "X's'" I think).

My laptop really doesn't like it for some reason. I did what you said and chose 'vesa' i didn't have xvesa. then chose the resolution and i got half the screen working the rest was lines and colours. Anyway i tried to open openttd in console again but nothing black screen again. Maybe i should stop trying before i break something.

but thanks guys, least i know how to make a .pet now Smile

First of all: Thank you TheYoungOne for testing and reporting the results!
And Keef: You are right - it only works in Xvesa.
That has annoyed me but I did not find a way to make it work with Xorg - until now.
I have uploaded a new archive which in this end runs fine in Xorg. In my eager to reduce size I think I have restricted the connection methods in my tinyxlib too much - so after loosen up a bit it just runs fine.
@ TheYoungOne: If you have the patience to try one more time with a new download I would be glad to hear about your findings - anyway your reporting spotted a big drawback in my toolchain - and made me work on a solution for that - thanks!

I meant 'vesa' not 'Xvesa' - my bad.

New version runs on the latest Akita with Xorg.
Tried the original on Wary 5.3, which ran under vesa. I'll try the new on Wary later and report back.

I gave it another go with the new one. But it was much harder to figure out what i was doing and no doubt did something wrong. I downloaded the gzip archives. Followed the instruction as before with the new names. It wasn't a static file i guess this made the difference because the file was much different. Like the very first one a downloaded (not from your link). Anyway i followed it through to making the pet. It said i had to make a .desktop so i did best i could understand, installed the pet i made, restarted X, openttd in the console but it says command not found. Tbh i didn't expect it to work i guessed my way through.

I'm a bit slow as it is, but i will understand linux eventually Smile
