I have created a game intro where many of the patch features can be seen. Some of these include:
> high screen resolution (the old intro screen resulted too small for higher resolution presets, and there was a big empty place in the lower and right parts of the screen)
> higher bridges
> path based signalling
> multi headed trains
> allow more industries per town
> industries of the same type can be built near
> bigger stations
> mammoth trains
> more steam
... and maybe more
I did this using sv1codec
by Marcin Grzegorczyk.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON THE USE OF THIS PROGRAM:
sv1codec Readme wrote:
sv1codec -c -td trt42.sv1 title.dat
but it didn't work. Then, I realized that my savegames were not TRTxx.SV1 but TRPxx.SV1 (I think this is because of the usage of patch and not the original game)
No graphic sets, other than those used by the patch (electrified tracks, slopes...) were used, so that everybody should be able to install and use this Intro.
You must have at least Patch V. 2.0.1 alpha 41
to have this file working properly

Anybody that creates a new intro can post it in this thread; to be shared with everyone. Anybody ready to create a snow Xmas themed intro?
I'm sure you can do way better than I did, I used a rather simple scenario, because this is my first try.
That's it. I hope you like it. Please report if you experiment any problems with it.
Thanks to the patch developers and Marcin Grzegorczyk for having released those cool programs
