Enable selection of more currencies and introduce the Euro in 2002.

Switch

Configuration file: morecurrencies

Command line: -XC

Description

This switch adds more currencies to TTD. It adds the Hungarian Forint, Polish Zloty, Austrian Shilling, Belgian Franc, Danish Krone, Finnish Markka, Greek Drachma, Swiss Franc, Dutch Guilder, Italian Lira, Swedish Krona, Russian Rubel and, after 2002, the Euro. If you're using DM, FF or Pt as your currency in 2002, the currency is changed to the Euro and the national currencies become unavailable. This happens to the Forint in 2008 as well.

You can fully customize each of the new currencies, see Currency Entries.

This switch is a bit switch. To find out how that works, see Bit Switches, or simply add up the values of the options you want:

Bit Value Name Meaning
0 1 symbefore Currency symbol displayed always before number
1 2 symafter Currency symbol displayed always after number
2 4 noeuro Do not introduce the Euro
3 8 comma Always use comma to separate thousands
4 16 period Always use period to separate thousands

Bits 0 and 1 are of course mutually exclusive. If either is set, it applies to all currencies. The same is true for Bits 3 and 4.
