Locomotion Available on STEAM

Post by Manuel18 » 21 Mar 2015 15:35

The game has been released on Steam
http://store.steampowered.com/app/356430/

Just for the person who don't bought it yet, i recommend buy via STEAM is even cheaper than Atari download version!

To be honest , since Game Spy Arcade has been closed , play it via multiplayer "CO-OP" has been a bit hard ,
NOTE: Steam version doesn't make any change, it doesn't contain a special multiplayer platform to keep playing via CO-OP.

There is a group on the same URL, for the persons who already got a Retail CD-KEY, you can't add the game to Steam platform at least adding like a "non steam game", that is a bad news

Makes me wonder what he is up to. He disappears for nearly 10 years, comes out and helps with porting this to iPad, and now it's on Steam.

Who is he?

Atari sells Locomotion not CS, he has his own publishing company since a few years, 31X Ltd., so why would he sell Transport Tycoon under the name locomotion and via Atari.

Let's know a bit of History

2004
First at all the name of this game has been called at first time on 2004 "Locomotion", Transport Tycoon is another story , the publisher and distribution company "ATARI" buy Chris Sawyer's copyrights to distribute and sell his game.

Chris Sawyer is a independient author, however he is just a programmer and designer, He need the help of a publisher company to distribute the game.

2014
Chris Sawyer and 31X Ltd. Release a game called "Transport Tycoon" for mobile devices , the game already use "Locomotion" platform, however the data files for trains and stuff are coded different. You can see diferences between TGV1.dat and TGV1.dat Transport Tycoon Mobile

2015
Atari release "Locomotion" on Steam
The game has been released on Steam platform, this gaming platform started with Half Life and games developed by Valve corporation, Grow up adding Companies like "Ubisoft - Microsoft - Eidos - Atari" and today is the biggest platform for gamers, they are including old games.

Ooh history ...

Your history lesson misses a few dates and events.
I have a hard time believing CS is involved at all in this steam adventure due to history.

Anyhoo I hope Atari patches the garbled colours out soon for ya'll. ;)

Its got his name in the title of the game so i'm sure he had to be asked by atari to put it up on steam.

Here it is even cheaper. In particular, there are no such problems as the version of Steam. :P

Hmm, that's strange....

The GOG version is 469.7 MB
The Steam install for me was 570MB

Where did the extra 100MB in the Steam version come from?

(Sorry if that's a stupid question, but i don't understand computer things very well.) :oops:

No, but why you dig out an old thread?

It does not matter how the game packed or formatted. The final installation in both contains the same cars and maps.

I never buy games via Steam/GOG...Rather have a product in my hands then as a download. Just bought me a new CD-version of Locomotion because the old one was completely done for. I paid just €3,- for it and it's running great again !

Quick Tip: The version of Locomotion on Steam is outdated (version 4.02.039) and the 1.76 patch cannot detect it (at least on my end).
