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, which has been recently released, bringing the below changes:

  • Fix:Add Misc. GRF Feature Flag 6 to enable the second rocky tile set.
  • Fix: Display relative offset changes in the sprite aligner.
  • Fix: Original road vehicle acceleration crashed for vehicles taking over.
  • Fix: GCC 5 compilation.
  • Fix: Data race due to lazy initialisation of objects.
  • Fix: Compilation with MinGW64.
  • Fix: Use the regular clipping functions in the sprite aligner instead of some magic.
  • Fix: Windows randomly drops SetCursorPos calls, breaking the RMB-scrolling.
