I got TTO of my cousin, he said I would get MagLevs which went over 700 km/h... never discovered them. Later I got TTD-DOS from a classmate. I finally discovered those maglevs.

Later my brother discoverd the ttdpatch website :D. Well, once I discovered custom trains could be added, I started drawing dutch ones. After sending him an email, Patchman linked me to this place :)

Well, ehm.. I think i was 10 or something when I first played TTO and I was 18 or something when I joined these forums :D

I started playing TTO Demo in 1997, it came from a DemoCD. I have played that several times because I loved the game. 2 months later I saw TTD in a shop, but had no money with me. After I got back with some money the game was already sold.

I started playing the game when i was very young.
We had a 15 min demo at first, then a Floppy disk version of the game (this was when i was about 6 or 7 i think) then a year or 2 later, we found the delux edition, got that, and i have been playing it for ages since, untill none of the computers could handle the game, so i was left with my very old laptop. then in october, i fond ttdpatch, and iv'e been playing it again ever since! :D

Around 1994-95 I think, as soon as I discovered TTO would run on my 4MB RAM :D

I remember having a version with real vehicle names, and later getting another one and wondering what went wrong...

I think I started playing with the demo. It must be the same time with the foundation of CluesWare. (My fictional company). Which is in 1999. I remember the day I started to play. That day I bought a pc desk. So I moved my pc to my room from the dinner table. :P And in this month I also found Colonization and the concept of Abandonware.
But the start of tycooning is with the RailRoad Tycoon. The first game on my pc was Civilization and I wanted a new game after playing Civilization for several months (still playing :P). I went to store and saw RRT with the name MicroProse on it. So I bought it. And I'm still playing these games.

As one of the first games I ever bought was Transport Tycoon just before Christmas 93. After trying it a little bit in the shop, I could not stand just wathching the game in the shelf. I had to own my own copy of the game!

Thenafter I wrote Chris Sawyer a few letters with my ideas, (thanks now there is a forum also :-)), and he also wrote me back!, and I still have his letter. :-)

When I buy my first pc, it has the game installed, until a day I had to format it, and I have to wait long time until I find the ttd page of owen rudge (http://www.transporttycoon.net) and after this I started to search a location to download the game (I don't know this forum those day) and finally find the TT original. After this, I search for the deluxe version and hardly finded it (for DOS). After this, I could use ttdpatch, and I discover this forum. From here I could download the Windows version of TTD, and my ttdpatch was better. After, I know in this forum OTTD, but that is other history.

My history is also large but interesant. I never will forget the first day that I play TTO.

Thanks to my Dad always having the lates equipment back then, I was playing TTO in late 1993. In fact, back then, my whole family was playing TTO and also Ports Of Call, even my mother. We had a fight about who is allowed to use the PC everyday.
Then before Christmas 1995, TTDlx came out and the others lost the interest, so it was only me playing it for years, until about 1999 when I got a new PC and the disc was broke, so I couldn't install it anymore. But in March 2004 when I was bored because there was no other usefull transportation game out (and there still isn't), I found TTD Patch and I'm totally hooked again since.

I was probably 11 when i got TTO and TTD in a pack together.

Played TTO once and stayed with TTD till i discovered the patch some years later. Then i found these forums and hence OpenTTD, never looked back since (until now! :wink: )
