You download OpenGFX and extract that zip into the folder ~/Documents/OpenTTD/baseset (create that folder if it doesn't exist)
That is also explained in the readme which you have gotten within the zip you downloaded.
If you know how to programme, help with getting the automatic download of the graphics set on a mac like on linux or windows (e.g. by supplying a patch) is appreciated.

it worked! :) I had to create a folder and transfer the zip file there - thank you so much! the only problem is that I don't have any sound - when the game window opened there was a little red window which said something like I need to download the sound from somewhere. Could you pls. point me in the right direction how to get the sound work? thank you again!

Now that the game starts, use the online content from the main menu to obtain sound and music set(s). And if you like also AIs, game scripts and / or NewGRFs to modify the game. You change sound and music sets in the game options accessible from the main menu.

Thank you very much!

My girlfriend is out,..im bored and I only have a Mac at hand.
And I havent used a Mac in ages.... so had to find a way to make it run.
And damn! It worked!

Thanks for making the past present! Love this game!


Windows version works like a charm too!!

Thanks!
