OpenMSX Readme - An OpenTTD Music replacement set =============================== Current Version: OpenMSX 0.3.1 =============================== Contents 0 About OpenMSX 1 Installing 2 Troubleshooting 3 Contributing and compiling from source 4 License 5 Credits 0 About OpenMSX =============== OpenMSX is an open source replacement for the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe (TTD) music. All contributions are licensed under the GPL v2. 1 Installing ============ 1. First, make sure that you downloaded and installed at least OpenTTD version 1.0.0 or later. 2. a) Manually: Next, download the latest OpenMSX package. There are a few sources: - the development homepage http://bundles.openttdcoop.org/openmsx - Look for "OpenMSX" on one of the OpenTTD binaries servers, it is found in the "bananas" section: http://binaries.openttd.org/bananas/OpenMSX-0.2.1.tar.gz (or possibly with a newer version). Unpack the zip file into the OpenTTD /gm directory (see section 4.2 of the OpenTTD readme for a detailed treatise on all data dirs OpenTTD recognizes). - An OpenTTD folder in your user account's home directory: Windows: C:\My Documents (95, 98, ME) C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\OpenTTD (2000, XP) C:\Users\<username>\Documents\OpenTTD (Vista, 7) Mac OSX: ~/Documents/OpenTTD Linux: ~/.openttd - The OpenTTD installation directory. b) Via ingame content download: - Go to the content download, and search for OpenMSX; it's found in the baseset category. 3. In the main menu of the game, click the Game Options button. The Game Options dialog will appear. 4. Select OpenMSX from the drop-down list below Base Music set if that's not selected already (bottom left of window). Close the window using the × in the upper left corner. Now that wasn't so hard, was it? Anyways, if you're having trouble getting OpenMSX to work, please file a detailed report on what you did, what error messages you got and where you got stuck at our bug tracker at http://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/openmsx or in the tt-forums. 2 Troubleshooting and bad sound output ====================================== Depending upon the hardware and the music driver used, OpenTTD may have problems to playback some songs without error or that it may happen that subsequent sound output is changed in a detrimental way. The latter is especially know to happen with the windows "dmusic" sound driver. You may want to try the "win32" music driver, if you have problems with windows' default dmusic driver. Search your openttd.cfg for "musicdriver" and change the line to "musidriver = win32". Consult also the OpenTTD readme for available options and its known-bugs.txt for a more detailed and possibly more up to date description of windows music driver issues. 3 Contributing and compiling from source ======================================== The OpenMSX source is available in a Mercurial repository or as gzip'ed tarball. You can do an anonymous checkout from http://mz.openttdcoop.org/hg/openmsx , e.g. using hg clone http://mz.openttdcoop.org/hg/openmsx or obtain the tarball from http://bundles.openttdcoop.org/openmsx/releases. Prerequisites to building OpenMSX: - mercurial (only when not building from a tarball, available from http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/Download?action=show&redirect=BinaryPackages) - md5sum (linux, mingw) or md5 (mac) - some gnu utils: make, cat, sed - unix2dos for convenient conversion of the text files - python (if you use mercurial, you'll have python) and you might additionally want a text editor of your choice and possibly a programme capable of creating and editing midi files. On Windows: we advise to get a mingw development environment, download mercurial from the sources mentioned above) For more detailed instructions see our guide at http://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/home/wiki and the very extensive and detailed installation instructions on the mingw wiki at http://www.mingw.org/wiki/Getting_Started On Linux: your system should already have most tools, you'll probably only mercurial available from the source mentioned above. For installation instructions concerning mercurial refer to the manual of your distribution. On Mac: Install the developers tools. Mercurial is easiest insalled via macports: sudo port install mercurial The use of mercurial is strongly encouraged as only that allows to keep track of changes. Once all tools are installed, get a checkout of the repository and you can build OpenMSX using make. The following targets are available: - all: builds all grfs and the obm file - install: build and then copy OpenMSX in your OpenTTD music directory. Use Makefile.local to specify a different path - clean: cleans all generated files - mrproper: also cleans generated directories - bundle_src: create a source tarball - bundle_zip: create a zip archive of OpenMSX - bundle_bz2: create a bzip2 archive of OpenMSX - bundle_tar: create a tar archive of OpenMSX - check: checks the md5 sums of the built grf and obg files against those of the official release versions Given the usual case that you modify something within OpenMSX and want to test that, a simple 'make install' should suffice and you can immediately test the changes ingame, if you selected the nightly version of OpenMSX. Given default paths, a 'make install' will overwrite a previous nightly version of OpenMSX. Mind to re-start OpenTTD as it needs to re-read the grf files. 4 License ========= OpenMSX Music Replacement Set for OpenTTD Copyright (C) 2010 OpenMSX Authors (see below or in the source in themes.list) and is licensed under GPL v2.
