  • OpenTTD - Transport Tycoon Deluxe on your iPhone / iPod Touch


    ZodTTD, author of the PSX and GBA emulators for the iPhone and iPod Touch, has released another incredible app, this one a port of the classic game Transport Tycoon Deluxe, via an OpenTTD port.

    The game is now available via Installer on the MMi Community Source, weighing in at a whopping 5.1 MB download.

    Feature’s include:

    - Classic tycoon simulation gameplay!

    - 38 different languages supported!

    - Internet Multiplayer games on the iPhone and iPod Touch!

    - A nearly 100% accurate port. Only things missing from the PC version are text input, sound, and music which will be implemented into my adaptation of the SDL port in coming releases.

    - Multi-touch support for right clicking and positioning/clicking the cursor.

    Discuss.

    The game comes with American and UK English installed. If you need other languages, there are 38 of them in the language file here, which you can install if you'd like. We chose not to include them all due to pure bandwidth.

    Visit ZodTTD's site and donate to get early beta access to his releases before they're made public.

      Am I the only one who is completely lost as to what to do with this game?

      How about some documentation?

      Tutorials?

      you need the following files.

      4.0) Running OpenTTD:
      ---- ----------------

      Before you run OpenTTD, you need to put the game's datafiles into the data/
      subdirectory. You need the following files from the original version
      of TTD as OpenTTD makes use of the original TTD artwork.

      List of the required files:
      sample.cat
      trg1r.grf
      trgcr.grf
      trghr.grf
      trgir.grf
      trgtr.grf

      I love Transport Tycoon (one of my favourite games of all time), and this installed and ran fine, but I find it almost impossible to play - it's very hard to hit the tiny buttons; to lay track with any precision; to scroll properly...

      Using your fingers in this game doesn't really work, unfortunately.
      First time I miss a stylus... :-(

      Near as I can tell, the touch uses what's called a capacitive system to accomplish the 'touch' mechanism. According to 'HowStuffWorks.com', "...a layer that stores an electrical charge is placed on the glass panel of the monitor. When the user touches the monitor with their finger, some of the charge is transferred to the user, so the charge on the capacitive layer decreases. This decrease is measured in circuits located at each corner of the monitor. The system calculates the relative distances from each corner that the discharge occurred, and relays that information to the touch-screen driver software."

      What does this mean? In simple terms, it means that a pencil eraser will not make a good impromptu stylus, but one wrapped in foil will. I've tried paper clips, wires, and other conductive objects without success (including spoons, and even letter-openers, ALL WITH GREAT CARE AS TO NOT DAMAGE MY SCREEN!!!) Don't try this at home folks. I'll practice with range of materials, perhaps a cheaper alternative exists for those of us that spent our last pennies on the touch itself.

      Cheers,

      It won't be under a ModMyI category. Open Installer. Go to Games. Install OpenTTD. Or read cash's post right before yours, which says the same thing.

      This has been covered dozens of times. ModMyI is NOT a category. All apps from our source are sorted into the traditional categories, assuming you have Community Sources 3.1.
