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:
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)sv1codec Readme wrote: sv1codec -c -td trt42.sv1 title.dat
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.
> WARNING: You must have at least Patch V. 2.0.1 alpha 41 to have this file working properly
> First of all, make a backup of your TITLE.DAT file found in the ttdx directory, for if any incompatibily would occur
> Download the TITLE.ZIP attached below in this post.
> Decompress the file, and move the file TITLE.DAT to the ttdx directory, over the old one.
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
