Missing/Corrupted NewGRF files

Post by slime »

For some reason the GRF files were not installed properly and I can't load certain games.

It says "This content is unknown and can't be downloaded in OpenTTD".

Does anyone have the following files from NewGRF?
- cargosetw.grf
- dbsetxlw.grf
- jcindsta.grf
- newshipsw.grf
- newstatsw.grf
- usstats.grf

Please upload them here and teach me how to install the GRF files, which directory to put them in etc.

Thanks!

Try GRF Crawler. Most, if not all, of those files should be there.

Come to think of it, most of the scenarios I download have missing GRF files which are unavailable on the web in their original form...

I tried the various sources of GRFs and cannot find anything. I used to be able to download them directly via OpenTTD but I don't know why I can't do this anymore

The proper directories are listed in the README.txt file that is included in the directory where you installed OpenTTD.

if the scenarios are too old, it might be that they have been renamed, removed, ...

just play the scenarios you find in your current ottd version, and you'll have no problem :)
