Did you try reloading the Page :question:

You need to do that so your not reading a previously cached copy of the file.  ;)

In case you can't, use a backup to restart it. It's a pity but at least that copy should work well. Btw, copy and paste the announcements from news and home section, in order to save work.

P.S: the SRM team is working on a new website, so this will be a temporary solution.

Keep up the good work! It's almost impossible, but the manuals are still getting better.

One little remark: the website maps.simutrans.com has been redesigned more than a year ago and looks different from the picture on page 56 of the reference manual. Maybe something for version 3.07?
