Hi

To get a working version but the lightest possible "simutrans-experimental" I downloaded and installed in the same folder:
Simutrans experimental (main executable binaries)
Simutrans experimental config files
A "pak" compatible

I tried the game and missed the music, then I copied from the "simutrans-standard music folder. And everything seems to work perfectly. But I fear that the game seems to work well but in reality there is something missing which I have not yet noticed. Can anyone tell me if the packages that I copied / installed are valid as working installation of the game or something missing?

Those upload sites are really terrible (current ones for 9.0). Something that doesn't fail all the time and make you wait an hour after the download fails to start to try again would be nice? Even mediafire is better.

jamespetts

Junna - thanks to a suggestion from Inkelyad, I have now updated all the links to refer to downloads available directly from Github, which should work much better. I didn't know what best to do after files.[ simutrans [dot] us (site down, do not visit) ] went down a few months ago.

Also NOD32 antivirus software displays the new Simutrans-Experimental.exe as a suspected worm infection.

jamespetts

I've never heard of NOD32 - presumably, the "diagnosis" is based on heuristic analysis, but I'm not sure why it would come up with calling Simutrans-Experimental a worm! Does it say the same about Simutrans-Standard?

It is based on heuristic analysis. It does not say it about Standard, nor does it say it about earlier versions of experimental.

More of a BUG than a worm.
I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it

Simutrans standard (102.3 - "nightly" daily update) - http://nightly.simutrans-germany.com/
Simutrans standard code (102.2.2 and 102.3 daily patch) - https://github.com/aburch/simutrans

Simutrans experimental does not have nightlies.

I can't seem to download the new config files package... Does anyone else also have the same problem? It comes up with an XML file with Access Denied message.

The link for the 9.5 complete package gives a very strange access denied error from github :(

jamespetts

Hi,

Is there anywhere I can download a linux binary of simutrans experimental that will run as a server without the graphics.
I am running a server on a vps but I would really like to be able to reduce the overhead by just going cli. At the moment I need to run it in a vnc session which is not good.
Thanks in advance,

dM

jamespetts

deMangler,

thank you for your query. Unfortunately, the person who runs the automated nightly builds has not set them up to produce the no graphics server version. However, you can compile it from source on Linux - just pull from the master branch on my Github repository and compile using the simgraph0.cc (have a look at the makefile to see what options to select). Some information on compiling, although some of it is specific to Windows, can be found in this thread, which covers certain dependencies and libraries that you will need to compile Simutrans-Experimental.

Please note that, with the current version of Simutrans-Experimental (9.5), you will not be able to join a game hosted on a Linux server from a Windows client or vice versa (or, indeed, any combination of client/server compiled in different architectures). This is a known bug and work is underway to fix it for the next release, 9.6.

Thank you for your interest in running a Simutrans-Experimental server!

Thanks for the swift reply - I will work on getting server up and running.

I seem to get an error.

Hmm - Git does that sometimes. It has worked earlier, as I tested it initially. Here is an alternative download link.

Hmm - I'm not sure, I'm afraid, as I don' have experience with Macs. Does anyone here know enough about them to know how to install on that platform?

how do i install the mac version

There isn't a ready-to-use package for the Mac, but I think all the ingredients are linked to in James's standing instructions.  Get a copy of the config files, and add into that folder a copy of the Mac binary and your pakset of choice (e.g. Pak128.Britain-Ex or pak.64-exp).  Double-clicking on the binary should then start up OK.

Best wishes,
Matthew

Hi James,
After 2 years abcense I am back again.
However, I have a problem.
I am running Win 8 with Virus-scanner ESET NOD32 Antivirus 6


Using the here-link for the last complete package, I get a quick download of the package. At the end it stops however, due to the virus-scanner[size=78%].[/size]


The log shows this: (presuming your Dutch is a bit rusty, I will give an English translation between ())

I gave it another chance on my second PC with Windows XP. Same result.


ESET NOD32 is one of the best tested anti-virus scanners.


Any ideas???

But this is the heuristics. Sound very much like a wrong alert.
