Compatibility in regards to NewGRF

Post by series2 » 06 Mar 2012 07:47

I am new to OTTD and have been making and downloading some scenarios however there are some I have not been able to open.

Is this because of newGRF issues? I had applied some such as "city stations" and "temperate set".

Does this affect the compatibility of scenarios I create and share?

Thanks to anyone who helps expand my understanding.

Are you referring to scenario compatibility between TTD, TTDP and OTTD?

Yes, what NewGRFs are used is stored in the scenario, and it can only be played with said NewGRFs.
However, NewGRFs can't be added to a scenario safely once you've started to create it, so it's definitely worth adding them. For compatibility while sharing, it's a smart idea to only pick NewGRFs that are on the online content, as these can be downloaded automatically by the game if a user doesn't have them.
