  1. Thank you. That's enabled me to play around with the scenario a little more, and attempt to get it a little more to my liking. (It's not as much fun in When the Walls Come Down, if all three other players build their railroads in Poland, and that keeps happening to me again and again.)
  2. OK, I'm trying to tweak a couple of things that annoy me in a map (not yours, Jeffrey, haven't found my platinum disk yet), but I can't figure out how to do some things. Obviously there must be some way to set up a computer company, but I can't figure out how. There seems to be no way to modify an existing computer company, and no way to have a computer player start a new company. It seems, even in the editor, the only thing you can effect is Player 0. So how do I edit or modify the other players or their companies?
  3. OK, so this can't be used with the Steam version ... but I think I know exactly where my platinum disc is, so I can just install that, as well, and have both steam and regular (modded for these updates) at the same time. Now the question is ... what other updates should I track down to try and fit in at the same time? (Port fixes for all the campaign scenarios, other fixes for all the broken things in the campaigns, etc, do I need any patches (1.56 was it?) or are they built in to your exe?) This stuff is fun, but also kind of complimacated. I hope to get around to actually tryi
  4. OK, I managed to fix this one. They were checking the event at the beginning of each month, which meant you would not see the correct manager until the start of the second month, because the month has already begun when you get around to starting your company. So I switched the time check to when a new company is started ... and voila, now I get the proper manager. I also changed the order of the trigger formula, since in an earlier scenario where it worked correctly, it was in the opposite order, and while it shouldn't have made a difference, I didn't know if it actually did. (ie Ca
  5. So I'm back doing my every two years or so "Let's play through RRT2 again" run-through, and am coming across a bit of a problem on this campaign. I've never noticed it before, so I don't know if it is a recent corruption, or a long-existing problem (don't remember noticing it in the past), but when I select the campaign option for Robert Gerwig and +10% speed, it doesn't give me Robert Gerwig as the manager. (It gives me Trethvik, instead.) Can anyone else verify ... is this actually a game bug, or has something gotten corrupt in my files? Understand, I love this game, sh
  6. OK, so it is only a long-term thing which is probably going to lose you money (at least short term) in the process. I think I will go back to not worrying about it. Was fun to give it a try for one scenario, though.
  7. The last scenario I played, along with making money and building up a monster network of trains and cities, I also chose one town to perform a bit of a test on. I took this one town, nicely located near everything it was asking for, and kept it fully supplied with passengers, mail, lumber, milk, food, goods, and produce ... everything it asked for. I had it's demand for everything at 0, and also hauled away to other cities all the things it produced (only passengers and mail). I did this for ten years, and it never gained a single house or industry or anything in the area. Kind of makes me
  8. I'm working my way through the entire campaign on the medium level, then I'll turn around and do it on hard ... while checking to see what badly coded events I can fix in the process. ;-)
  9. I load RRT2 up every couple of years, usually, and start playing through it again. In the past, I usually played through about scenario 10 in the campaign, then felt I had had enough for another couple of years. This most recent time through is the first time I have played through the entire campaign, and now have gone through scenarios 1-10 a second time at the intermediate level. The odd thing is, this time around I have been in massive speed mode ... the question of replacing trains has not come up this time around, because I keep finishing every scenario in 5-10 years. (I now complete
  10. I don't know why, but I cannot get this to work for me. I have tried several times. Following the steps listed in the first post as the first, simplest way of going about things, I can get a bond issued, then buy back all stocks in the company, driving it down to around $6 for stock value. I can then buy 'all' the stock in my company and own it outright, and have $500 to build a small pair of stations and get a weak route running. The problem is, though I might get one or two trains of passengers moved, when the year ends, my stock is valued at $40 or $50, tops. I have no money to expand wit
  11. Wow ... you aren't kidding, a lot of the events are coded wrong! I managed to fix it to keep them out of France and Constantinople, though I may not have done it absolutely correctly. I moved the territory number to the box, then removed the second half of the trigger condition, so it just checks if it is 1850 or later. It is, and none of the companies can start in France. I cannot verify if they gain the rights to France after 5 years, because the AIs build so slowly during that scenario, they never get near France, anyway. (In 40 years, the most cities any of them expanded to were 5.) Also
  12. Thank you ... that gives me some things I can try to tweak, to see if I can get these working right. So they are supposed to be blocked for five years, by the thing being set for temporary ... was that part at least set up correctly? With the input you've provided, so I'm not just completely cluelessly poking around, I'll get to work on it. Thanks!
  13. Hi, all, I'm new here, but have been playing RRT2 on and off for well over a decade. It's one of the games I come back to every couple of years for a few months. Have been playing through the campaign at one of the more difficult levels, and have run ino an issue. The AIs keep starting their companies in France. If it were just one of them, I would not mind so much, but four railroads trying to run in the same country, when there's this huge map with multiple other countries they could get their starts in seems kind of silly and unfair. I decided to poke around in the editor, and try to
