    Default Baldwin centipede DR-12-8-3000

    Has anyone else had trouble getting the lights to work on this centipede under Binary ?

    Hi docol,
    If this is the download from Elvastower - NdeM6413.zip - the lights don't show because the "engine" carrying the headlight is not at the front of the consist, although, confusingly, the lamp is visually at the front!!

    Open up the NdeM6413-2.eng file in a Unicode-aware editor (NotePad, ConText, etc.) and, in each of the four Lights sections, change Unit ( 1 ) to read Unit ( 0 ) and re-save the file. You should find it works OK now

    If you wish to use the other loco, NdeM6412, then NdeM6412-2.eng will require amending in the same way.

    Cheers,
    Ged

    This is the PRR centipede DR-12-8-3000 5812......though the lights don't work on the SAL unit either....I did change the "unit' #

    you are quite correct.....the light section in patrt 2 was the problem....setting the unit =0 fixed it....thanks
