I played TTO in 1996, I've got it from my classmate (we were 7 years old by the way). I had no idea how to make orders and curves on roads, but my dad sorted everything up :)
About 2001 I've been looking for TTO websites, possibly downloads, where I've found TTDPatch.
Following links on TTDPatch website, I got to this forum, where I've found OTTD (in kind reply to my post "can anyone tell me what is OTTD?")

I started playing years ago (5 PCs ago), and was immediately addicted. So much better than Railroad Tycoon and other early imitators.

Never seen the deluxe version, in fact didn't know it existed until I visited this forum.

I always win, but who wouldn't? Competitors are pretty stupid (even if you set them to be intelligent).

1996(?) On a computer at the health lodge at a Boy Scout camp. I wasn't a scout, but my dad worked at the camp, so I would go every day with him to play TTO. Then I got a PC in 2000 (Being a previous Mac user) and downloaded a copy of TTO and TTD.

Hah, i've started playing TT in 1995, when I was four (lol :D), my machine was Pentium I 120 mHz :P It was much problems with installing SVGA drivers on Win 95, so there was a dependence: If I break something on computer and my dad have to reinstall OS, I can't play TT for 4 weeks. Easy :P

1994/5 - Got hooked by the demo on a magasine disc. Bought the game and soon a group in the office were playing when the boss wasn't looking - then we got a warning for wasting time!

I don´t remember, but I was only 6 years first time I played it myself, without help. My dad helped me when I was only 5 years, in 1995 or 1996

I think I started playing TTO in 1996, though I really can't trace back when exactly, it might also have been 1995 or 1997. I was something like 10 or 11 then. TTD I think I discovered by 1999 or 2000...

In 2000 some time, I walked into K-mart and looked around and saw this game and I thought, "that looks cool" so I ended up buying it (the best AU$17 I ever spent)
I'm A Cobra (or so the rumours go) :)

I started playing TTO sometime in 1998 I think, on my 486. Damn it ran slow when lots of stuff was happening on the screen. I remember I always used to pause the game when I had to scroll cause otherwise it took so long :P

Heh :D
i started playing TTO 4-5 years ago, on my 166Mhz Intel Processor, it was a really addictive game, and i guess this game still is addictive.
I managed to play TTO on a 75Mhz computer(Siemens Nixdorf PCD-5H).

I've first played it in 1996 when a friend of mine borrowed a copy at the local Libary. I bought the game in 1997 and became heavily addicted (and I still am)

I can't remember

What I do remember is that I've played the demo so much.

I could only play the first 2 years, after a few months I got the real game.

i discover TTO as a demo on a old game of the phantom of the opera, that was around 1996, my first computer a pentium 75Mhz with 8 megs of ram a HD of 500 MB (or something like that), a old Svga graphic card i think it was 2 MB, no sound card and no internet, later buy the full version of it and was able to copy the game on flopy disc and no longer required the cd to play, later i discover TTD and downloadit from a web site, (that was before any P2P), i buy recently Locomotion but the graphic is not as good as the TTO or TTD.

I first started playing Transport Tycoon when i was like 8? Around summer 1996 I reckon. I had a demo of TTO on a dosgame collection backthen. I didn't understand the full potential and possibilitys of that game yet, but still it was fun and I spend hours after hours raising money and developing a massive railroad system (I've always been into trains :p ).

I bought the Windows95 Version of TTD like when I was 10 when I saw it in a computer store. A few days ago I just digged it out again, enjoying the many features of the patch :p

I actually cannot remember when I started playing TTO. I bought it I think in 1995 or 1997. I can't really remember but I got hooked on it pretty quick.

I am still debating if I want to pick up the newer version or not. Don't want to be disappointed.
