    Actually it has been around since Win 7 but had a different name and fewer tools.

    Just hold down the windows key and hit PRNT SCRN key. Inside or outside of game, screenshot goes to your C:\Pictues\Screenshots folder.
    True, BUT Snipping Tool can copy a portion of the screen which is very helpful when all one needs to copy is a small portion of a menu or just a portion of the sim so that the main object is visiable in a smaller frame. Plus it saves to JPG rather than PNG format,

    And RTFM means read the FINE manual. At least that was what I was told when I was in the Army.

    This is why I resurrected the tutorials.....

    There's a tutorial with pictures for taking screenshots.

    There's a tutorial for installing add-ons.

    As our friend Vince (who created the NECv4) used to say..... RTFM.... translated as read the "friendly" manual.

    What are you having trouble with?

    The NECv4 should create its own directory under your Routes folder, and then executes a batch file to execute. If that's not working, you probably don't have the original routes installed. That's a prerequisite for older routes. Newer routes don't reuse the MSTS objects.

    For equipment packs, there should be .CON files to go into your Trains/Consists folder, and a folder with the shapes and textures to go into your Trains/Trainset folder.

    If you're having trouble, try including screenshots of where your errors are happening.

    MSTS is like a box of Legos with minimal instructions... it might take some trial and error.

    Ok it's another problem, could one of you make a easier explanation on how to install the northeast corridor v4? And the Neck01 pack.

    That file SHOULD have been installed when you installed MSTS. The MSTS installer places it in the folder ....\Train Simulator\Sound where it can be used by any refrigator wagon installed in your Trainset.

    Considering your original post in this thread and now this post above, I recommend that you reinstall MSTS from the CDs. If you have installed MSTS bin, you will also have to reinstall it.
