I Can't Buy Shares or Patch Game.

Post by shassfool » 17 Jul 2014 22:27

Hello i am running Open TTD 1.4.1. on Windows 64.

The problem is i cannot see a option to buy shares in other Companies. There is no option for this and i presume the game needs to be patched.

If so what is an easy way to do this?


Thanks :)

Or the option Advanced Settings (Advanced Settings)* -> Competitors -> 'Allow buying shares from other companies' is turned off.

*Aargh how are we even supposed to describe that dropdown?! :twisted:

The Co's are old enough to buy but the Option for Shares is not there at all. Thats why i asked about the Patch.

You don't need a patch, you need to change the ridiculous* dropdown in the Advanced Settings window to 'Advanced Settings'. :roll:

*Filtering settings is fine. The complete insanity of how the filter's implemented currently isn't, as the half- over a dozen threads like this indicate.

Merged/moved new topic here. Please make sure you reply instead of starting a new topic ;)

Make sure buying shares is allowed in the adv. settings.

Did you read all of the above and ensure that those conditions were met?
