OpenTTD 1.11.0-beta2 - Open Source Transport Tycoon Deluxe gets a performance build

We haven't featured many open source games lately, so here's an update you might be interested in, is the latest open source build for Transport Tycoon Deluxe ' as 'OpenTTD 1.11.0-beta2 '. Although this was released last month and didn't appear in our inbox, I thought it still worthy of a mention, especially as Transport Tycoon Deluxe by Chris Sawyer was one of the highlights on the PC in the mid 90's.  This open source version makes the game so much better especially if you enjoy running your very own transport company, such as bigger maps, stable multiplayer mode for up to 255 players in 15 companies and much much more.

We've featured OpenTTD for many years now, and this version although Beta was certainly worth a write up, as according to the team behind the game, this is a huge update to OpenTTD as a massive improvement to performance on the video drivers on all platformers have been made, which includes OpenGL Support (Display now runs on 60fps). And that's pretty much all there is to say, but do be aware for OpenTTD you can use the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe data files IF you so wish but there are (free alternatives without the need for TTD: OpenGFX (graphics), OpenSFX (sound) and OpenMSX (music). These can be installed automatically by the Windows and OS/2 installers.
