Question open transport tycoon deluxe

i just came over one of my most favourite games of the 90s which has been available as opensource version at for a long time now. i used to have it under windows... now i wonder if i need an original version of ttd also for linux in order to make openttd run? i downloaded the .tar.gz file and tried to run the application, didn't work.

.tar.gz files are typically just source code. You need to compile it before you can run it. First, unpack the source (which I assume you have done). If there is a README or INSTALL file then read them

Usually though, a simple:
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install (as root)

should do the trick.

And no, you do not need the original version installed.
Also, if you are indeed using Suse then you may want to have a look and see if there are any rpm files for ttd. May be easier to install.
