Hi. I feel very embarrassed about having to ask for help, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to run Simutrans. I downloaded the latest linux version from Sourceforge but I have no idea what do do with it. So I tried installing the apt-get version but I got a six year old one and that will not do.

Sooo, after I downloaded and extracted the sourceforge file... then what? What's the ELF file? What am I supposed to run? Please keep in mind I'm an inexperienced Linux user.

Thanks,

Hello and welcome to Simutrans! Can I check first of all whether you are trying to install the Standard or the Extended version of Simutrans?
Download Simutrans-Extended.

Want to help with development? See here for things to do for coding, and here for information on how to make graphics/objects.
