How To Install OpenTTD 1.5.0 Beta 2 On Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04, Debian 8, Debian 7 And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may already know, OpenTTD (Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe) is a Transport Tycoon clone, working on Linux and Unix systems. Being an old game, it does not have good graphics, but it has a convincing gameplay.

The latest version available is OpenTTD 1.5.0 Beta 2, which has been recently released, bringing the below changes:

  • Feature: [NoGo] Game scripts can point to a location, station, industry, or town when publishing news.
  • Feature: Allow changing max heightlevel in scenario editor.
  • Feature: Make use of both rocky tile sets from the base graphics.
  • Change: Scale (non-custom) default window sizes according to GUI zoom.
  • Change: Make statusbar and chat-entry window use the same width as the toolbar.
  • Change: The chatbox-width setting now uses percent of screen width instead of pixels.
  • Change: [NewGRF] Interpret negative positions in industry layouts depending on GRF version.
  • Fix: [SDL, Windows] Right-mouse-button scrolling scrolled/jumped too far, when OpenTTD lagged during mouse event processing.
  • Fix: Toolbars were not invalidated when changing max-vehicles settings.
  • Fix: Tile selection was drawn outside of map in some cases.
  • Fix: Reimplement the viewport drawing algorithm.
  • Fix: Issues with smallmap and viewport coordinates and transformations.
  • Fix: Mark bridge middle tiles dirty when building/removing/changing bridges.
  • Fix: Rounding and unit-conversion inconsistencies in calls to MarkAllViewportsDirty.
  • Fix: Oilrig empty-tile checks were incorrect due to wrong TileIndexDiff->TileIndexDiffC conversion.
  • Fix: Misalignment in generate world window in case of small fonts.
  • Fix: Dragging of free wagons in depot failed with GUI zoom.
  • Fix: Reduce memory footprint of map array by shuffling its members.
  • Fix: Dropdown- and tooltip-windows should not steal the focus.
  • Fix: [NewGRF] Action 7/9 condition 0A failed for present, but disabled, NewGRF.
  • Fix: Road vehicles could not reverse to be sent to depots when the following tile has the right type to run on, but could not be entered.
  • Fix: Use the actual max speed of the vehicle in front when determining if a RV can overtake.
  • Fix: grow_counter was not properly bounded by growth_rate, but by some other value used to calculate growth_rate.
  • Fix: [Script] Support 64 bits integers in ScriptLists.
  • Fix: [Script] Money values would end up wrong in strings when outside the bounds of a 32 bits integer.
