Hi folks ! :D
Following 2 Questions:
1., I wanted to add the brake lever to my cab but it couldnīt work. When I started to īve a look at the cab with the working order Strg-A the lever stood still on the first frame. When I created the brake I checked the settings and made them equal to the HHP.
any ideas ?
2., How can I make a new cab-signal-display ? How must the frames look like and how can I add them ? Is it possible to use Photoshop ?
any help possible ?

Wow; Cab Design by Correspondence Course! LOL !
Ok, you have posted several separate questions but I'll try and answer them all here.

In my last post to you I said that the properties screen is where you tell the game which element in your picture relates to which control setting. In the Properties dialog under the picture of the whole graphic there are two spin boxes. These set the control setting against the image, counted from the top, across the page then down, across and so on.
If you have a 9 element picture of the throttle, 0 might be Idle, then working your way through 1-8 settings. Spin up 1 for setting, spin up 1 for graphic element - you will see the green border move to the new setting. Set it all up this way.
What you have to have done before this, of course, is to set the train in the main screen Properties dialog. If you do not give it the name of your eng file it will not find the settings and you cannot enter them via the editor.

Use TGATools2 from Martin Wright to extract the graphic of the original Acela and send it to Photoshop as your graphic editor. Then reload and create your own ace file. There are 8 elements in theaspect signals graphic. I have made about 6 variations of the aspect lights so I know this works.
You also asked about the tractive force display:
>My cab is running but I could not solve the problem
>with the brake/tractive force display
You did not actually say what the problem was. Your description sounded ok. Is the problem the range? If so, amend the sart and finish readings in the Properties dialog.
