View Full Version : Problems with the activity packager
03-25-2002, 03:23 PM
I'm building an activity for the Simulatortracks TGV route but my activity packager doesn't work. The file has a 1000 bytes size.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

i never use that packer, i hate it. i suggest the following:
all files you create in the activity give a prefix like "abc"
after you are done, do a search under train simulator for those files, abc*.*
you will retrieve all the files necessary to upload you activity (as long as you only used stock rolling stock and engines, if not, then you need to tell the people where to get the custom equipment.)
you will see that the "abc" files are in the following directors:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Train Simulator-
routes\name of the route\activities
routes\name of the route\services
routes\name of the route\paths
routes\name of the route\traffic
now simply zip them up and send them to train-sim.com for public consumption!
if you have any other questions, please let me know

Just thought I would let you know that regardless of the fact that I appreciate all the time activity designers put into creating activities - I avoid any activity that requires a lot of copy/cut and paste of files and folders. Have had too many problems with those type of activities. In fact, have had to uninstall and reinstall MSTS twice because of that.

If I remember right, the packager didn't work for me unless i did an activity for the standard routes. could be wrong, but i thought that was the situation.
Yep, sometimes it's better to be safe than sorry :)
