I only broke 100,000,000 by 2001. I'm from the UK though and I was using GBP instead of US$ does that make any differnce? I'll try again. What are you guys using for screenshots? I tried pressing the Print Scrn button but that didn't work, I'll have to try HyperSnapDX or something.

From ExchangeRate.com: 100,000,000 USD US Dollar = 54,143,000 GBP Pound Sterling.

This would mean that you're halfway there, by current standards (I have no idea what standard was really used in the game).

To make a screenshot I used the option built in the game itself. Go on the big red ? and hold the menu there until it dropdown (instead of using the ? option) and go to "Take a screenshot". You then only need to convert the .pcx to .jpg and post it on this thread. That's what I did so I am pretty sure it will be alright for the image size limit of this board.

I recommend that you use US$ dollards for the challenge. Having to convert the currency each time would be hazardous at best and may result in false convertions. If everyone use the US$ standard from the game then we will be absolutly sure that everyone is equal.

I also tryied to make as much money as possible with another landscape (I always use the random generator). I took the desert landscape (for the sake of not always playing the same thing, which get boring) and managed to only get 36,000,000$ by my old record (1996). There is probably a set landscape which bring more money than the others, and so everyone knows I did the current record on the default temperate landscape.

On transport tycoon most exchange rates are very simple, most are 10x or 2x US$, 1GB? = 2US$. This means that UberDave got 200 million dollars and beat us all.

Well I don't know much about currencies. Unless someone can give me the official standings of the game I won't go into transferring them from one currency to another.

The challenge is quite precise on one thing tough; the point is not to get as much money as possible but to get to 100,000,000$ as soon as possible. Thus this mean that Uberdave would come second to me because his snapshot would be from 2001, whatever the total $ would really be.

Hehehe... Then that's why it's a "challenge"

I actually thought it would be easy to beat... :blink:

This screenshot should give you a hint on how I manage to get so much cash early.

Look at the money I gathered with my trains after 5 years...
