Would all users please do the following before posting a question:
1. Check the documentation!
There have been many posts recently that could have been avoided if the user in question had just read the documentation. The TTDPatch manual is available in many different formats, including HTML suitable for reading in a web browser (online manual
) and a very useful HTML Help file format. This includes a handy table of contents, index and search feature - click here
for more information! All TTDPatch settings, problems, features are explained in Wiki
, looking there should be your first step if you having any problems. The TTDPatch FAQ
answers your questions and helps with many problems such as multiplayer playing, configuring TTDPatch, COM errors, and many more.
2. Read through older posts, and do a search!
Please read through older posts in the forums for likely topics. If you are having a problem with, for example, TTD on Windows XP, look for topics with "TTD" and "Windows XP" in the title. If you can't find anything, do a search
- there are many options that can help narrow down your results so you don't get irrelevant results. The TTDPatch mailing list archives
may also contain answers to your questions.
If you cannot find the answer from any of the above
If you can't find the answer to your question by doing any of the above, then post a new topic. Please be clear, and give details on the version of the game you are using (eg, DOS or Windows), the version of TTDPatch you are using, if any, and any other tools you have used (eg, TTDAlter). Also post the operating system you are using.
A saved game and/or TTDPATCH.CFG file can often be of great assistance, so post these too.
