In addition you will need game data files (e.g. graphics, sound effects). You can either use the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe data files or our free alternatives OpenGFX (download graphics), OpenSFX (download sound) and OpenMSX (download music) which you can download at the same location as well.
For installation see the installation FAQ for details.
Testing and development versions
Testing and nightly releases
- Regularily testing releases or beta versions of upcoming stable releases will be available. These builds shall make sure that the game gets some testing before the next stable release so that it doesn't contain any serious bugs. Download testing (will re-direct to latest stable, if currently unavailable)
- You can download the nightly build binaries from nightly.openttd.org. Each of the supported OS's precompiled version can be found in the appropriate folder.
Translations are made via the webinterface. But you can test translations prior to editing the strings in the translation system also locally. This is espcially helpful with tricky cases where the immediate use of a string is not clear on first sight:
- Get the last nightly version of the game and get the matching strgen which allows you to re-compile the language files for immediate testing with the OpenTTD version.
Obtaining the source code
If you don't plan to compile the language files yourself, you can get the lng files from the nightly build zip files, found above.
You can get the current source via
