    Firefox has the dangling-process problem too, as does (only recently) Thunderbird. Windows Task Manager is the way I kill them. Luckily, the computer I normally do trainsimming on has enough RAM (and...

    Would it be possible to capture the sound from a pass-by video and edit that?

    One problem I would expect is that if you only have a full-speed sound (run 8) it might have things that don't show up...

    IIRC, in addition to the directory issue, a route has to have at least one path. I've run into a few that don't have that, and as a result don't show up in the routes list. Adding a path with the...

    The "NCR" in the file library is the "North Coast" railroad - a successor to the Northwestern Pacific in northern California. If you get the final update of the route, it's actually a pretty nice one...

    Edit to post #6: don't bother with changing the sounds. Default Dash-9 works OK, though when I tried it I got no horn or bell, little engine sound in the cab and low sound volume outside too, in Open...

    PS to the previous: in my experience, you need to maintain at least 15 fps for ORTS to be playable. Below 12 introduces large delays in control inputs.

    Another thought: I've never been able to get MSTS to actually *run* in a virtual machine, but it does *install*. So if you have, say, a copy of Win98/SE or ME or XP around, you might want to install...
