@Devs,

Can we get Gwyd's Upload of BRTrains removed from the Content Portal or can we remove this ourselves, this was hastily uploaded before sharing the BRTrains shared login for bananas.

Thanks,

If your request is not possible then update that grf with an empty grf that refers to the right grf in the description.

GRFs can't be removed from Bananas, except to comply with the law (e.g. DMCA takedown notices).

Removing grfs potentially breaks savegames and scenarios using that grf.

Wouldn't it be more logical to move the upload credentials of the BRTrains grf to whatever account you want to use?

Ie, you're not worried about BRtrains grf being bad or broken, are you?


Send an email to the general email address of openttd.org with all the details. (I am not a maintainer there, but perhaps they can help you, and it seems a much better solution than killing save games of people.)

BRTrains upload itself isnt an issue as the credentials are shared now between the devs, its the one stray GRF with a different ID that is no longer necessary.

I'll replace it with an empty GRF, that advertises its obsolescence

I would replace it with a compatible version of itself that announces it's obsolete. Don't break save games ya know?

But if you don't update it...

Just leave it, it's a piece of history that will soon be forgotten.
Also we have plenty of unused GRF IDs, so no need to clean that up either.
