i tried to upload a scenario with NewGRFs Parameters.

When i select dependencies (newgrfs 2cc, Av8 and eRGVs) , i've a message:

" * You can't add a dependency of this type. "

then, i tried to unselect all the dependancies, it's impossible,

It could be possible if a choice (none) exist

Thank you to fix that ;)
This task depends upon

I propose something similar to this:

- reject scenarios where one or more of the newgrfs needed are not found in the bananas database
- add the needed newgrfs as an automatic dependency

reject is a bit harish, maybe a "!" sign if there are no-BaNaNaS newgrfs needed.
(the newgrf can still be added later e.g.)

The same could be done with servers "maps", a sign "BaNaNaS-ready" or "/!\", the first is nicer. :-)

We have nothing that tells via a simple CLI application which NewGRFs will be required for a scenario, so automatic detection of missing grfs would be hard. Such application would be useful.

Nevertheless, it has nothing to do with this bug I think.

To unselect items in that box, use the CTRL. It should unselect the items. Otherwise it is an issue on your browsers side.
In the current setup, you can't make scenarios depend on NewGRFs. This won't be done any time soon either. It is strongly suggested to only upload scenarios which do not depend on any NewGRF.
