Simutrans Portable Development Test 1

This was hard, with my drive corrupting and the legal issues.
Name: Simutrans
Description: Simutrans is a freeware transportation simulator that runs under Windows, Linux, and a few other operating systems (Mac with Intel processors, BEOS).

You take on the role of operating a transportation company, and your goal is to get goods of various kinds, as well as passengers and mail, from one place to the next.

Don't be fooled by the tile-based graphics - this is a very complex game, and it is constantly evolving, with new features being added. It is a living game, and consistently being made better and better.
License:Launcher GPL, Base app Artistic license (Yes, I got permission)
Release Notes:
Development Test 1:Initial Release

  • @John: I'm still uneasy about the legality. Am I allowed to use the installer with the Artistic Lisence, because it's only derivable w/o permsission in source code form.

To Do:

  • UPX it
  • Get Patrick to tell me the little things
  • Get another excuse to use the computer

Didn't you check the help file?

Or is something wrong with the ZipDLL?

No go.

Doesn't work for me. I've confirmed it's not running simutrans.exe.

Also, when extracting the PAK, extract to $EXEDIR\App as it includes a simutrans\ folder within the zip.

No

I'm with Ryan on this. Your launcher is extremely outdated, and won't run the app. And running the app directly it crashes every 4 seconds. I think it's best to leave this one.

It looks like you're using an old version of the launcher.

not yet

As you can see in that repo, I haven't touched it for a while. It's on my list of lots of things to do, but not a priority right now.
