    The remembering issue is what drove me to the stream deck. I have no memory for keyboard commands outside the normal Windows keyboard shortcuts that I use endlessly. Everything else kind of falls...
  2. The expensive way to add to your keyboard... :P

    While we're on the subject of input devices, I didn't want to derail the other thread. (JoyToKey is a great way to get more use from a controller!) But as somewhat of an input device junkie, it...

    Train Store just stores away routes, not locomotives and rolling stock, so you can still wind up with an MSTS folder with an impractical number of other objects.

    It's only Microsoft's fault insofar as at the time of publishing MSTS, using (3rd party) copy protection was implemented. The real problem is that the 3rd party copy protection - SecuROM - turned out...

    Intel and MSTS is a mixed bag. Some chipsets down't work at all. Some work, but with odd visual artifacts on ground textures. Some work fine... or at least fine until a driver update breaks...

    "Monogame" is the name of the programming framework. Many games are now written on top of it. Have no fear, Open Rails will retain its name. :) It's just convenient to refer to the Monogame version...

    Monogame is a more modern, open source framework that implements XNA 4, but across platforms instead of being just tied to Windows/Xbox. It will help ensure Open Rails can stay on a modern platform...

    Installing on Windows 10 is no different from installing on Windows 7, other than the Securom protection being blocked by Windows 10. But you can still copy all the MSTS files from both discs into...

    I think the anti-tracking feature in Firefox 70 and later is breaking the programming on some sites. It's messed up authentication for one of the sites I had to use for work, broke the settings...

    Mike, I just checked the Steam4Me links to the MSTS updates and the site for the BIN patch, and all were working in Firefox for me... But I use the ESR version (68.x) these days. The 70.x release...

    In addition, a lot of laptops now have really high-resolution screens -- much higher resolution than MSTS can understand. Before launching MSTS, set your screen resolution on the desktop to no more...

    A method that's worked well for a number of people is to just copy the files off of each disk into one folder. Copy the contents of Disc 1 and then the contents of Disc 2 into the same folder. (One...

    Also, there is no such thing as a "fixed" version of MSTS for Win10, and no such thing as a (legitimate) downloadable copy. Make sure you are working from original discs, or ISO images/file copies of...

    What's your screen resolution set at? Anything more than 1600 x 1200 will crash MSTS. Editors generally need even lower resolutions. Set your screen resolution on the desktop before launching MSTS....

    Glad it's working now!

    I've learned that Win10 just continued the same path of security limitations that Win7 (and Vista) started. Basically, for older software that wasn't designed to work with...

    It's alpha / early beta still; all that's to be expected. Plus it's largely an ets2-clone. But if they can pull off wishlist items like rigids and BDFs, and walkarounds outside the truck, they'll...

    Interesting if this game is able to compete. As a start, it looks like an ambitious ETS2-clone. Not a bad thing -- competition can actually help SCS. They put trucksims on the map. This validates...
