NewGRF

Post by Weareallthesame » 02 Nov 2019 17:11

Hi peeps,

I’m currently running the zBase graphic set of the game and I’m unable to use any GRFs. They show as active in the NewGRF Settings (accessed on the home page), I click on Apply and when trying to access or utilise any GRFs from within the game, the list is empty.

What am I doing wrong?

Please upload a save game, and state which version of OpenTTD you're using?

NewGRF settings are local to each savegame and cannot be changed after starting, so changing NewGRFs in the main menu won't affect any existing saves, only new ones.

It's probably this, yes.

You select the NewGRFs you want to play with from the main menu, then you create a new game, and then you can use those NewGRFs in that game.
It's a very bad idea to try to add/change NewGRFs in an ongoing game, which is why it's hard to do.

Thank you all for responding. I wasn’t aware that NewGRF could only be added to a new game. That’s a shame.
