    If it won't start up at all, trying (restarting) 3 times will often drop it into the Recovery Environment where you can tweak things and reinstall. Depending on what went wrong, though, you might...

    Update: saw in another publication some data regarding the GT730. Functionally, it's about half as good as the latest Intel built-in UHD graphics. So if you want to spend a little more on the CPU,...

    "Get the job done" ... all of us have various quibbles. Basically, your vendor is proposing last year's mid-grade system with an old, old GPU. Yes, for now, it'll "get the job done" for OR, maybe...

    Absolutely, do this! I have to open up the desktop and clean it a couple of times a year - very dusty here. Even so, when I cleaned out the old parts in order to build the new computer, some of the...

    Excellent resource; also downloaded it.

    There's a free Seligman Sub in the f/l here (a Bob Wirth production iirc). The track seems to be very well done, but the surrounding scenery is kind of...

    Done, and the re-download and re-install (clean - wiped out the old miniroute folder so I'll have to reinstall the extra trains, like the MP-54s, too) worked. We're back in the real world. All I can...

    Looks like that's the case. All that's in the Tiles folder are *.t files. Guess I'll re-download and reinstall. Would be nice to have everything looking natural to try out some switching.

    Minor quibble: the GTX 750 and 750ti reference design, even with a slight overclock, will run completely within the power envelope of the PCIe bus. Unless the card maker was doing something funny, a...

    The official way seems to be:

    Start
    Search for "activation" then open the Activation Tool
    If no internet, use the phone option
    Phone should be automated, and give you an activation code to...

    I have LIRR. But I must be missing something. When run in OR, all the tracks and many of the buildings are "flying", sometimes far, above the ground. What have I done wrong? Nuke and reinstall, I...

    I'm confused. You say different TRAINSET folders are needed due to differences in Scalerail edition (old ACE or newer DDS textures). I was under the impression that Scalerail and Scaleroad only...

    The difference, really, is that governments have tax departments and military to collect money or other things from people, and force them to use the government's money, should it all fall down. So...

    Welcome back, ninja'd many times. I put together, may years ago, a package of stuff that I use to install MSTS/Open Rails (both, for reasons I'll explain) on a new computer or new disk. It's a BIG...

    Nice! Looks like you've cleaned up a lot of odd elevations and such that appear when I run V2 in OR.

    Does the passenger stock have opening doors? That might be another thing you have to pay...

    Agree. However, for the KCS stockholders, the CP deal might still be better in one respect: the CP offer is mostly stock, with only a little cash; CN is the other way around. All that cash has tax...

    I'd see CN has having more STB problems than CP, because KCS and CN have a lot of parallelism. So it would be more like a classic merger with duplicate routes to shed/abandon.

    The other problem...

    I've noticed the low frame rate = wheel slip connection too. Suspect that the simulation update rate is correlated with the frame rate, and if it's slow enough the simulation sees the update delay as...

    Just for the record, the f/l has an old Daylight trainset with the cars and E8's. https://www.trainsim.com/vbts/tslib.php?do=copyright&fid=9168

    It actually works in OR, but needs some tweaking....

    The original starter route had nice scenery and such (though a few problems with bridges up on the hill). The "new" starter route has a bunch of white blades along the tracks that look like they want...

    At the south end ... would you be planning to build on to, perhaps, a backdated version of the Metro-North route? The closely-timed locomotive change at the end of the 3rd-rail electric territory in...

    According to Wikipedia, it was originally NYC to Niagara Falls. Later, it referred to the entire NYC-Chicago line. This route looks like it's the first part of it north of NYC. "Water Level" because...

    Here's a question: regardless of window size, does it actually run in 64-bit Win7 or Win10? If so, then by definition it's a 32-bit program because 64-bit Windows can't, by itself, run 16-bit...
