I wanted to try out OpenTTD today and came across two issues. I couldn't find any solutions so far, so maybe one of you can lend me a hand .
I downloaded some newgrf including the OpenTTD-version of Michael Blunck's DB-XL-Set from here
and unzipped them to a folder "newgrf" within the OpenTTD-folder. Unfortunately, any of Michael's newgrf will show up in OpenTTD's NewGRF-Manager (see ttdx1.jpg).
What did I do wrong with the installion of these newgrfs that should be a compatible version with OpenTTD?
2. TTD Savegame to be played in OpenTTD
I do have a very old savegame, that I really love. I started it in 1995 (Classic TT), converted it to TTD some years later and played on every now and then until today. Now I would like to play it with OpenTTD, but it wouldn't have any newgrfs with it. I guess, because you would have to start a new game to have newgrfs enabled? Is there any chance to enable newgrfs within a running savegame? (see ttdx2.jpg)
3. Another very old savegame runs fine in TTDX, but keeps on crashing in OpenTTD because of missing newgrfs (see ttdx3.jpg). Is there any chance to find out, what these would be or simply to reset the newgrfs and keep on playing this savegame anyway?
