    My two favorite ad and tracker-blockers are uBlock Origin and Disconnect.

    Also, never search on Google while logged on to Google services (Gmail, Google Drive, etc.). If you're logged on, all your...

    Even for Open Rails, I usually switch to a more "standard" aspect ratio, like 1920x1440 for a less stretched cab view. Other than that, usually 2000m view distance looks good to me. I usually use the...

    34" ultrawide 3440x1440 -- Originally ran with a GTX 1080 which handled it just fine; upgraded earlier this year to an RTX 2080 Super. Way overkill for Open Rails, and MSTS will crash unless I lower...

    Don't use the default install path. MSTS wasn't designed to work with modern Windows (By that I mean Vista and newer...) and you'll run into problems. Follow the "Windows 7" instructions at Steam4Me....

    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...

    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...

    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....

    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...

    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...
