      That seems quite selfish especially as I see there are several responses from the softwares author in this thread!

      Does being a selfish vindictive person give you joy? If so, may you live in interesting times.

        LMAO!!! You got that right Vince ......sadly

        ....and "advut" YOU don't seem to have considered that others reading your thread may NOT have had an answer to your question ....but have been interested in the solution to the problem The whole point of a forum is to share and spread knowledge.

        Perhaps you might consider sharing your solution? Don't worry if you were doing something stupid ....anyone who ever did ANYTHING did stupid stuff more than once

          Apologies for the caps and all...I think that advuts comment made me channel dear old OTTO..rip.
          Been quite a spell since we've seen posts all in caps with colors...sometimes I miss it...not too much, a little perhaps.
          I will not make this a habit. Promise.

            WOW, overreacting is on 100% throttle with no wheelslip whatsoever!! Awesome!

            BTW, I previously shared ways on how to change ORTS Sun size,colour and also shared a sweetfx preset. I now realise my blunder in doing that. So, thank you for the reactions.

              Hi advut,
              Thank you for your previous contributions - I'm sure they are appreciated. However, your comment in post #106 was way over the top and got the deserved reaction. Have you ever thought that the reason you don't get helpful responses is, very likely, because other members, or those who have read your post to date, do not know the answers to your queries?

              Cheers,

                Is there anyone out there that works on a Windows XP os and was successful in installing the new TSRE program with the 32 bit option? I tried a PM to gokuMK but was rejected because his mailbox is full.

                  I have the 32-bit variant up and running fine. I assume you've downloaded a TSRE5x32 version, and then the appdata, which is separate?

                    I've again hit a problem with unit replacement. TSRE5 displays some consists as broken. I assume that is because I am missing necessary rolling stock units. But, I don't want to download the missing files. Mostly they are repaints. Many activities require downloading repaints of same unit which I am trying to avoid due to bandwidth, manageability, HDD space issues. I want to replace the missing stock units with what I already have. I figured out how to replace one unit in working consists but that process isn't working with broken consists. How to fix broken consists?

                    I too tried to PM goku but like the previous poster got inbox full error.

                      advut: easiest way is to open 'unit view' in the view menu, insert replacement stock next to the broken stock (which is noted in the list) and delete the broken stuff.

                      Typically when I have a consist open for problems like this, I clean it up in other ways - getting rid of default stock and otherwise getting it more towards a prototype selection of cars.

                        Advut, if you have a large amount to replace, or some locos/wagons appear in many consists ( or activities) you can use a search & replace utility to replace them all.
                        SearchReplace, Edit Rocket, and Text Crawler are a few.
                        If you are not familiar with these programs, it may take a little learning curve, but after that it really speeds equipment replacement up.

                          TSRE in 32bit, yes it is possible BUT,

                          If you have a large number rolling stock...gigabytes of rolling stock, or you are editing a route that has a large number of .ace files per tile (route was created using Mosaic etc), TSRE will crash because it does not manage memory! There is no way around this, and you can keep track of the memory usage in the task manager and observe how TSRE chews up memory with each tile load and/or as you go through your collection of locomotives/wagons. It was suggested that I lower the resolution of the loaded .ace files, but it still crashes when it is out of memory. For me, TSRE as a consist editor is a shame because of the memory issue in 32 bit.

                          YMMV, but for me it seems that it can only work on a 64 bit machine with a lot of RAM memory installed or you have have a small collection of engines/wagons AND avoid editing a route that has many distinct .ace files per tile (Monon. etc).

                            What do you mean by "
                            If you have a large number rolling stock...gigabytes of rolling stock, or you are editing a route that has a large number of .ace files per tile (route was created using Mosaic etc), TSRE will crash"? Are you referring to the "(Not Responding)" in the status line at the top of the TSRE Window? I have only tried the 64 bit version and I have found that when reading a large TrainSet database that when you click on the TSRE window while it is reading the data that this "(Not Responding)" appears. The problem is that TSRE-CE has no Progress Indicator. I have pointed this out to Goku and he plans to implement one.

                            FYI for large TrainSets TSRE-CE takes about the same time as ConBuilder or other CEs to read the data.

                              Thanks, it worked that way. Many activities supply consists that are not really accurate (train composition, livery). I will fix those consists as well.

                                WRT TSRE in consist edit mode, if you "visually" start looking at your rolling stock by selecting your first piece (eg.loco or wagon) and use your arrow keys to move on to the next item in the list, where, the rolling stock item in question is actually displayed graphically, at some point it will cause an OOM. Again I said, gigabytes worth of rolling stock. This [crash] occurs very quickly if you display large size textures, however by forcing lower res textures in TSRE this takes a bit longer, but then unlike Shape Viewer, you have to deal with poor quality images. In english, a 2048^2 texture of a loco, can be displayed with as 256^2, but of course it looks like a blob! TSRE does not manage memory, so as you load more and more shapes/textures, the other shapes/textures that you are no longer looking at, or will not use, are not cleared out of memory (this is EXACTLY the same problem that Mosaic has!). So unless you know EXACTLY what you are going to use and avoid at all costs scrolling visually through your rolling stock, an OOM will occur. This defeats the purpose of being able to graphically view/create consists.

                                I still do a lot of work in a 32 bit world, and I have not spared the time to move everything into the 64 bit world, primarily because things do not work as I want them to. 3D Canvas/Crafter comes to mind. At this point not even Open Rails is 64 bit.
