OpenGFX instructions

As you see, I included instructions for installing the game without the TTD files. This is currently aimed at OpenGFX, as that's currently the only base graphics set besides the original thats somewhat usable. As soon as other base graphic sets become available, the OpenGFX parts should be changed to a more generic style of instructions, with the page including a list of all available alternative base graphic sets.

If somebody has other ideas about structuring this page, feel free to do so, maybe eventually splitting it into seperate pages for each operating system? --FooBar 14:01, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Alter installation path

Although I chose D:\ for OTTD to install, the folders "ai", "baseset", "content_download", "game", "newgrf", "save", and "scenario" are in My Documents. Is there any way to change that? Can I just move the folders to D:\ or will the game crash searching for files? Is there a way to change that directory right from the beginning? (I installed Nightly r24397). And also: Is this the right place to ask such questions or should I use the tt-forums --77.0.157.99 22:19, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Hi, the forums would be better to ask, but anyway: Just move the openttd.cfg file (and all the folders [optional]) to your install directory, and you will now have a 'portable' install of OTTD :) --LordAro 11:58, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
