       1 Overview         
       2 Change History     


==================
1) Overview
==================
The original release of Railroad Tycoon II - The Second Century was 
version 1.50.  It incorporated all patches for the original Railroad 
Tycoon II (through 1.05) as well as incorporating support for all 
the new features in the expansion pack.  This version (1.54) is the same 
as what is included with the gold edition.  If you've bought the gold edition,
you don't need to install this patch.


==========================
2) Change History
==========================

--Changes in 1.54 Version--
A) Added 800 x 600 display mode (previously the game only supported 1024 x 768).  
Note: 800 x 600 works by generating screens internally at 1024, then downsampling them.
It is slower and less attractive than 1024 x 768 mode.  However, for systems that can't 
display 1024 x 768 (many laptops), this is a way to play the game.

B) Various changes to support the gold edition (not relevant for owners of The Second Century)


--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
1973.

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