I started playing TTO at some 1999 I guess. But I didn't play it for long, it was very boring (Yes TTO was boring) because I was allready used to playing TTD, and TTO had some really stupid mistakes in it, which I could not get used to.

I remember buying TT in 1995. It was my second year in college. I bought TT because it looked fun and it was related to my major (operations management). I didn't buy TTD because I was too hooked on the original to think the sequel would be any better (I still only play the normal scenario, not the desert, tundra or candyland versions). I played TT on a Packard Bell, 486/66mhz (da bomb back in '95). I remember how my PC tried so desperately to keep up when trying to scroll around the world, but the screen would occasionally become jittery.

After homework :wink: , I'd play TT for hours and hours straight. I just got a copy of the windows version with the patch and I'm hooked again (eight hours logged in since Sunday night)! I've pre-ordered CS's Locomotion for shipment on 9/7. It looks like what TT should after ten years. I'm glad to see TT make it into the new millennium, even if it is under an alias. :)

first time.. only thing I remember is that it was a 486DX 66mhz with the huge amount of 16mb of ram :)

I think something like 1998-1997

I started playing TTD (DOS version) in 1995 (maybe earlier?) on my old 386SX.
I just found OTTD today and I'm impressed. WooHoo. I won't need the shadow stations in this version. (A shadow station receives materials but does not supply the production of the materials...steel, goods,paper, food, whatever and requires careful placement.)

Hmmmm about 1996/97 I think. I say that because I was using a laptop, a laptop that had to be upgraded to Windows 95. I had to pay about £40 for an extra 4mb's of RAM (totalling 8mb's). I litterally played it until the HDD packed up, all 700mb's of it. I later played the Playstation version, however I'm sure there's a point in that version where it can't go any further, it just stops! Took it back in the end.

Amazing. I had a Packard Bell 9502 with a 486 DX/2 66Mhz processor, 4Mb of onboard RAM, a 500Mb HD and something like a 512Kb Cirrus Logic VGA thingy. Played TT just fine!

First game I ever bought new (got Dune II and Doom 2 for £3 each from a boot sale, on floppies!) was a bundle called "Business Selection", I think by Electronic Arts, which comprised of Theme Park and Transport Tycoon. Bought it because it was the only version of Theme Park my local computer shop had. Happily played Theme Park until I got bored with it. I remembered this other game (TT). Didn't have a clue what I was doing. Just built this really long single line connecting all the towns with small stations, then not having enought money to build any trains.

Eventually got the hang of it anyway. Must be in '96 I got the Deluxe version from the same place. Then a few years later discovered the excellent work being done in TTDPatch. This year I discovered OpenTTD which is almost perfect. There isn't many games lots of people still play after 10 years!

Hi all, just came across these forums the other day when for no particular reason I typed "transport tycoon" into Google.

Anyway, the first time I played Transport Tycoon was back in September 1994 and it was a demo version from a magazine coverdisk. I then got the full game for that Christmas from my girlfriend. I think she's regretted buying it for me a few times since then! Mind you, she's now my wife so I can't have been *that* bad!

At the time, I played it on my parents' 386DX-40 - 4MB of RAM. And it did get *really* slow once a lot was going on in the game. It took absolutely ages for a year to pass in the game. Scrolling the map was really slow too, as someone else mentioned a few posts back - and their PC was high-powered compared to this one!!

Sadly, at some point I mislaid the original CD (still got the box and everything). This forced me to buy TT Deluxe (the budget version as that was the only one available when I bought it a few years back).

Still playing Transport Tycoon Deluxe - every now and then I get a phase where I play it almost obsessively, then I'll leave it for months but I've always come back to it sooner or later.

So there you go. My TT-playing history.

Tim.

I can't remember when exactly but my first version came on two floppy disks :) and the original box, white if i recall. I played on my P60 with 12Mb of RAM don't remember it strugling tho.

Anyway I later bought the delux version.

Still have the floppy disks but threw away the box :( , best game I ever bought on floppies thats for sure!!

1997. Had a demo on some games cd, and then ordered by mail a few months later. Was so addicted to the demo, kept playing 2 year games. I was so excited when I ordered it, I remember waiting for it to come. Although it was one day it took ages. :)

Like other of you, I started on the college. I cant remember details, but it was in 94 or 95, on fantastic new 486 with superb performance. :)
Transport Tycoon charmed me at the first sight. That small airports with little Dacotas or steam machines with cloudlets of steam still touching my heart.
In present I have some pirate copy of TTO on my other computer and it's still 486 but not new and not with superb performance. :(

I was looking for new additions to TTO in 2003 and I discover TTD and TTDPatch, repairing some bugs and adding longly awaited features for TT. I playing it with some breaks for today.

P.S: Transport Tycoon or Simcity or Civilization taking to my students past, and it's quite pleasant journey.
