And even for other palettes, you can simply tell grfcodec which palette to use, read from external palette files:
Code:
Built-in palettes: use -p <number>, where <number> is one of the following:
   1  DOS TTD
   2  Windows TTD
   3  DOS TTD, Candyland
   4  Windows TTD, Candyland
   5  TT Original
   6  TT Original, Mars landscape

External palette files: use -p [type:]filename.
[type:] can be bcp, psp, or gpl.  (Other formats may become available later.)
If the type is omitted, bcp is assumed.

bcp   binary coded palette with the same format as the palette in a PCX
   file: 256 triples of red, green and blue encoded in bytes.
psp   the palette format output by Paintshop Pro
gpl   the palette format output by The GIMP.




Than you OzTrans and planetmaker for the extra info. Will have a go at seeing if I can find the crash date in the exe in a hex editor and try to change that tomorrow.

If you asked me to mod World of Warcraft I could do it, which I have but... Decoding a DOS game, I have absolutely no idea how. We have a lot of people who reverse engineered the TTD client, and a lot of people who rewrote the game into OpenTTD, one of them may have an idea?

If I could have done it myself, I would have a long time ago.
I am not asking for help because I am lazy, but because we could unlock a fully playable pre-release version of TTO, a true treasure in the development process of our lovable Transport Tycoon.


;(

i know this is, old but i wanna know... did anyone had sum luck with passing 1932?


In the almost nine years that you've been waiting for somebody else to fix this for you, while bemoaning that you don't have the skills to do it yourself, you could have attended college, obtained a PhD in computer programming, reversed engineered the program and released your own patch. And probably done a bunch more awesome things, including becoming a contributor to TTO/TTD/TTDPatch/OpenTTD.

There is a point where you stop waiting for others to do for you, and you start finding your own way.

9 years is enough to collect money and hire somebody to do this.

Well I've always been horrible at Math, and my job is far away from reverse engineering DOS coding.
But really, I am amazed it's been nine years...

And thanks Roboboy ^^

Anybody can improve themselves, if they choose to do so. In 2009 I knew nothing at all about GRFCodec, sprites or building a NewGRF. Today I still don't know much at all, but in that time in-between I've managed to learn how to fix and modify a few NewGRFs from other people, and release a few of my own.

Very few people in this world have true talent. The rest of us have to fake it and keep educating ourselves until we are competent.

I am no good at Maths either, but I managed to learn how to program.

After 60+ years I'm still looking for that competent part. The fake part was easy, but now that's getting harder to accomplish as well. :cry:

Some people get it, other's don't.

As with any skill you're trying to learn, at first you will suck, but after a lot of practice you will improve. For some people it is just quicker with math. As someone who is relatively math-minded it also took me a while to understand stuff (higher order differential equations, WTF) but after a lot of studying it eventually clicks :)

I came across another interesting screenshot I thought was worth sharing. It's a scan from issue 17 of a games magazine called Edge, published in February 1995. Note the different-looking small airport and bus terminals!

This means that there are at least two unknown pre-release versions of the game that were sent to press for review.

Welcome back, it has been a while!

I'm not aware that anybody has done anything with the old TTO demos.

This entire thread is a monument to human stubbornness. :)
