    Thanks for the heads up. Maybe a short list of improvements would be a good thing to post along with the link.

    And having tested it on a couple of routes I have to say OpenBVE as it now stands is...

    Absolutely Brilliant!!

    I've been testing it on a couple of routes and it runs so smoothly as to be unbelievable. My favourite so far has been trying the railtour on the superb West Midlands Network. It honestly looks and feels better than any of the commercial sims.

    Good news too, not sure if this was a change already made but older rw format routes now work, so classics like Bruce's Heavy Coal can be enjoyed once more.

    The only plea I would make, for a future update, is for a Save Game option. Some of the routes (including the new supplied ones which I have still to look at) are quite long and can't always be driven in a single session. I know you can skip to a station but it's not the same as being able to resume.

    NorthernWarrior:
    If you desire to convert legacy Bve1\Bve2 .RW fomat routes to the latest OpenBve .CSV format,
    a RW to CSV route conversion program is in the same folder with main program at this downlink:
    http://obts.wikia.com/wiki/OBTS_Wiki..._.26_Documents

    This program file name is "OBTS_Route.RW~CSV_Chek+Cvrt.Exe".
    Have used it on a few old .RW routes with good luck.

    Also, I believe a PAUSE\SAVE\RESUME function for routes is on Chris Lees long to-do list for the main program.

    I was going to give this a try, but after seeing all the messing about needed to install and run it.

    I will give it a miss sorry. I used to use BVE constantly 14 - 15 years ago and used to enjoy it immensely.

    Sadly, I am of the same mind.
    After reading Vern's assessment I went to the instruction page and felt as if I was back in the days of DOS and writing batch files.

    Yes same here Bruce, DOS was fine 25 years ago when i was young enough and well enough to be bothered.

    Made my head hurt just reading the Wiki, shame because BVE, was good going back some time.

    It was you that told me about it originally.
