    What a revelation hit me! Now I know why you can walk out to the front of some of those American locomotives!
    A real pity that when Mr Edwards closed my eheidi.s topic he also deleted my last reply to you. I you read that, you wouldn't make jokes like this

    First of all, thank you for the valuable contributions to this topic.

    In a non-virtual neighborhood bar, a person can take a gander before deciding to stay. Or don't senses count for anything these days? My intention wasn't to offend anyone, especially not by showing up in the wrong colors in a football club's bar.
    Apart from that, what you are saying has rather sinister undertones; it implies that all those people posting in my "ORTS complaints" topic both take themselves seriously and consider my arguments utter bollocks and my indignation unjustified.

    My calendar says 2022, not 2025.

    Shades of user "LetsGoRailfanning" whose unstoppable (pun intended) concern for 3DTrains F-units landed him in forever-moderated purgatory whose posts are on track to be approved sometime in the year 2052.

    steamonly,

    Bad advice?? If that's the way you feel, I'll not waste my time replying to any more of your posts, in whichever Forum they may appear.

    I'd wish you "Good luck", but, unless you change your attitude, you won't have any!!

    That means that you are running Windows 7 while it is obvious I am running Windows 10. Jokes aside, and with all due respect, I can't show courtesy to somebody who intentionally gives bad advice. But I don't blame you, but I can't have respect for the greengrocer's apostrophe either.

    The critical item missing that could affect FPS is GPU memory.

    steamonly,
    My apologies, but as geepster775 has pointed out, your PC specifications are incomplete.
    Notwithstanding that, if you can run other 'games' at fantastic rates, there is no logical reason why your PC should not run MSTS very easily.

    Your comments regarding the sound problems are, frankly, rubbish.
    For at least 10 years, I have been running MSTS successfully, with the SoundSystem parameters as shown in my last post.
    As has been mentioned by others, the problem is with your PC or, with respect, yourself.

    By the way, you should NOT have "High DPI Scaling managed by Application" set for MSTS.

    I suggest that you study the tutorial on Steam4Me regarding installing MSTS into Win 10 - https://msts.steam4me.net/tutorials/...sts_win10.html
    The only action missing is that train.exe (and launcher.exe) must be set to "Run this program as an administrator".

    I fail to see the relevance of your criticism of the Formula 1 commentary - everything I posted was pertinent to your current problem ie MSTS!

    If you want help from this (or any other) Forum, it will pay you to show a little courtesy.

    Dear Ged,
    Your reply kind of reminded me of an '80s recording of a Formula 1 race I saw few years ago; there where two British commentators, and they were constantly describing other things happening than we were seeing on the screen.

    Anyway, I applied the Williamson & Santucci procedure, orthodox and variants

    trial: omitting the last parameter
    result: no sound

    trial: setting the last parameter to 0
    result: no change from stutter/pop as usual

    trial: setting the last parameter to 67108864
    result: no change from stutter/pop as usual

    trial: setting the last parameter to 134217728
    result: no change from stutter/pop as usual

    PC specifications are listed in the first post. It can run RailWorks without issue at 60fps minimum.

    You are trying to be far too clever for your own good!

    If you've installed the Bin patch, I hope you also selected the sounds enhancement. That is all you need to do.

    For details, referring to lines like : SoundSystem ( 5, 40, 20, 31457280, the recommended values are SoundSystem ( 5, 400, 100 ). Omitting the last parameter has proved to be beneficial. The first parameter will be in the range 0 to 5, indicating the Scalabilty level entered in .sms files. These changes must be applied to all the SoundSystem lines.

    You would learn a lot about MSTS if you read the tutorials on Steam4Me (https://msts.steam4me.net/).

    Process Explorer won't be of any help to you.

    If your MSTS crashes when running the default routes, then the problem, almost certainly, is due to the (in)capabilities of your PC. Why don't you give us some information, like its specifications and what OS you're running.

    Yes, it's one with 200 instead of 40 for the second parameter of the third item of the next to last "skip" (and no other change).
    I changed it to 2000 but apart from some very long loading times it didn't solve anything.

    Well if somebody has those tools I just saved him an hour's work didn't I? Winter Evening Run crashes once for two full runs so it's pretty reliable. Otherwise I will look into it with Process Explorer or whats'isname but I have absolutely no clue about the Windows API.
