has anyone tried to run simutrans or simutrans experimental on windows 8? Should I expect any problems?


I seem to recall that somebody had and had not had difficulties, although I cannot recall the details now. From what I understand, Standard works in Windows 8, and the OS specific parts of the code are the same in Standard as Experimental.
Download Simutrans-Extended.

very well. i suppose i'll just have to use linux if it doesn't run well.


I ran experimental, with the 80mb save from the server, off of an SD card just fine on win8 laptops at stores.

Haven't played Simutrans since installing Windows 8 yet, will report when I do. Can't imagine it wouldn't work fine, though...


Hi, I have been running various releases of simutrans, including 112.1-r621 on Windows 8.  I ran it as Administrator and/or with Compatibility set to Win 7, yet the outcome is the same: it crashes  if I try to either load or save a game.
The error is: FATAL ERROR: loadsave_t::int_version() - Really broken version string! Aborting program execution ...
Any ideas?
