Rejoice, the first beta of OpenTTD 1.9.0 is here. The full version is 1.9.0-beta2, as beta1 had an unfortunate accident involving a monkey and a cockroach shortly after inception.

Some highlights are:
  • Support for up to 64 simultaneous rail types and cargo types;
  • Group liveries;
  • Modernized and updated music and sound drivers, including support for the original DOS MIDI music;
  • Detailed framerate window and faster fast-forward;
  • numerous NewGRF enhancements and bugfixes.

Full changelog and download.

debs only?

How do I install that on Gentoo?

The old generic binaries worked perfectly for me, just unpack to /usr/local/games and run.

Seems like I'm stuck with 1.8 then. Thanks a lot.

You can't at least compile? :roll:

Gentoo is *built* to compile! Whatever happened to emergeing the complete system every few days with -funroll-loops...

Yes, Gentoo is built to compile, but during the 15 years that I've been using Gentoo, I've only compiled the most trivial code by hand. Portage usually handles everything.

I could possibly do that, if I could get Allegro to work on my system. I've actually tried, but as long as Allegro just bombs out when I try to build it, what I get is a server installation without graphics. Seems like I have to raise a thread on the Gentoo forum about that.

You don't need Allegro. None of the official Linux builds are Allegro-enabled. You do need libsdl1.2 though.

Well, I'll be damned. I thought that what was the documentation says:

Quote:
Without libSDL/liballegro on non-Windows and non-macOS machines you have
no graphical user interface; you would be building a dedicated server.

So it seems like I don't need both but either or :D

I did a ./configure; make; make install, and now I'm up and running.

Thanks for the enlightenment! :bow:

The 4 sprites that I'm missing, where might they be found? I'm on OpenGFX, and can't find an in-game update for it.

When I select Norwegian (Bokmål) language, it also says that 84 strings are missing from the translation. I think I can fix that :D

Hi leifbk

Had similar a week ago (missing sprites) and Kamnet gave this reply:

pray tell me where to get the latest developement of OpenGFX.


The current stable version is here, and should fix the issue:
https://www.openttd.org/downloads/openg ... atest.html

If it doesn't, the latest nightly development version is here:
http://bundles.openttdcoop.org/opengfx/nightlies/LATEST

Detailed installation instructions are included in the files.


Solved the problem in OTTD but not in JGR Patch that I use.
Still missing but does not appear to affect the game, that I have noticed. :)

I could also help for Norsk (Nynorsk), as I don't speak Bokmål.

Here's a bunch of the changelog items I think warrant attention when trying out the betas, since these are among the more likely ones to cause new issues:

Change: Make ships turn slowly when changing direction and stop when going up or down a lock (#7065, #7150)
Ship movement has changed a bit, take note whether this causes them to move in weird ways or seem to flicker around or such.

Change: Decouple GUI timing from game ticks (#6780)
This allows faster fast-forward and various other niceties, but might cause some windows to not be updated correctly at times. If you discover a window that doesn't seem to update when you do something that ought to update it, give a note.

Change: Clone tool in depot window now behaves like clone button in vehicle window (#6754)
Just might take a little getting used to, it shouldn't cause bugs :)

Change #6397: Keep town growth rate in sync with house count
Change: Switch town growth rate and counter to actual game ticks (#6763)

These should be safe, but do take note if some towns seem to grow too fast or too slow. Also need testing with Game Scripts!


Additionally, the current beta2 will show in server lists as "1.9.0-g6e21190" (possibly with some more hex digits at the end), this will be fixed for the next beta (or RC) to show the correct version number.

The new ship movement through locks is a pleasure to watch. I've always disliked the smooth movement, particularly upwards, which seems to defy physics. Once I saw another type of animated lock here on the forum somewhere that looked a lot more like the real thing. I hope that it will be revived and put in a GRF.

Hopefully, this is the first step towards a real variable daylength.

So far, it's annoying, but I may get used to it - in a few years. There is what looks like a bug, because the clone button is missing from the vehicle window of a newly created ship:

It's there the next time the ship visits the depot.

Haven't tested this yet, I've turned town growth off.

Yup, that one's a bug :) https://github.com/OpenTTD/OpenTTD/issues/7197

Fix is done, included in nightlies already, should be in the next release.

That's more a problem of that NewGRF - or you'd see the same issue w/o any NewGRF.

Probably the error is only in "CZ Ground". I informed developers of CZTR.
