OpenTTD on Microsoft Store... Paid Edition?

Post by Seven11 » 30 Jan 2019 00:47

Did anyone else know about this? Someone got OpenTTD on the Microsoft Store, but it's a paid app - $1.99 for this version that isn't even right!

Yep, it was noted back in 2017: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=77018&
We now have an official port posted there as well.

Would be nice, if such people would donate the money to OpenTTD - but usually they don't. To make life difficult for him, you should ask him about a copy of his source code.

But beyond there's little one can do - it's legal and there is no trademark on the name of OpenTTD either.

small correction here: there is no registered trademark, and trying to enforce unregistered trademarks is trickier
You might not exactly be interested in Ferion, but if you are, have fun :)
