                       History File - 19 February 2003
                               Version 1.56


       1 Overview         
       2 Change History     

1) Overview
Thanks for supporting Railroad Tycoon 2 for over 4 years!!!

This patch incorporates all previous fixes, plus one new fix and one 
new feature  (see 'Change History' below).

This patch should also be useable on any foreign language version of 
Railroad Tycoon 2 Platinum (German, French, etc.) - the .EXE is NOT 
language specific - the localized text is read out of separate files, 
and this .EXE will properly use whatever language files are installed.

This patch can NOT be used for previous versions of Railroad Tycoon 2
(original, Second Century, Gold...)  For patches for those versions, 
go to www.gathering.com

2) Change History

--Changes in 1.56 Version--
A) Added support for the middle-mouse wheel.  Roll it to zoom in and out.
Press it and drag the mouse around to scroll the screen.

B) Fixed a bug where the screen scrolls too fast if you move your mouse
cursor to the screen edge.  (Those young whippersnappers make dad-burned 
newfangled computers so fast today that they were causing RT2 
to scroll too fast.  Fixed now - that'll learn 'em!!!)

--Changes in 1.54 and 1.55 Versions--
A) Various fixes to support the Gold and Platinum versions of 
Railroad Tycoon 2.

--Changes in 1.53 Version--
A) Fixed bug when using waypoints on Metra maps

B) Fixed campaign scenario #7 (Supertrains/France) so that gold victory
now registers correctly.  This fix does not require a new version of the
scenario, just the updates in this patch.

C) Reduced train breakdown/wreck frequencies as follows.  After 1920
breakdown frequency is decreased 15%, and the odds that a breakdown is
in fact a wreck are also decreased 15%.  After 1970, each chance is 
reduced another 15%.  Overall, this means less breakdowns and a lot
less wreckes for the modern trains.

D) Added a cheat - hit <TAB>, then type nowreck to eliminate train
wreckes altogether.  You can also pass this in as the command line 
option /nowreck.  Example:

"C:\Program Files\Railroad Tycoon II - TSC\RT2_TSC.EXE" /nowreck

(Note: Version 1.52 contained only minor modifications for 
European language issues, and was never released independently)

--Changes in 1.51 Version--
A) Fixed problems loading and playing games saved in the original 
version (including the tutorial).

B) Changed the availability date for the TGVx (prototype) to 1955 from

C) Fixed the help text for the editor A.I. controls
