Thread: MSTS and Win 10 with Open Rails

  1. #1

    Default MSTS and Win 10 with Open Rails

    Since MSTS will not run in Win 10, if I have it installed, will Open Rails be able to use the files to run the activities?

    Thanks

    It should, yes. None of the old MSTS software will run on my W10 machine, but OR sees and uses the MSTS content correctly.

    Strangely, MSTS runs very well on my Win 10 machine, but I never use it now. OR is the way to go.
    Beer is not a matter of life or death, it is much more serious than that.

    MSTS also runs very well on my Windows 10 machine.

    Hi,
    MSTS runs successfully under Windows 10 Pro 64-bit for me, using a 1920x1080 Samsung 22inch monitor. I have seen reports that it will not run if one of those super-high resolution monitors is used, but have a feeling that the problem might be with the drivers.

    Cheers,
    Ged

    MSTS will still run fine on Win10 with Nvida graphics, the driver fix for AMD graphics, and even some varieties of Intel integrated graphics -- as long as you manually set the screen resolution to 1600 x 1200 or less. Not only are people getting ultra-high-resolution monotors for desktops, a lot of laptops are coming with ultra-high-DPI screens which are just smaller but still extremely high-resolution screens, and they all will give MSTS problems unless you manually dial back the resolution Windows is using before you run it.

    But for most purposes these days, Open Rails really is more useful. Just install MSTS (outside of any Program Files folders) but don't bother launching it. Just let Open Rails use its file assets when it needs to.

    Thanks for reminding me Boat23.
    Just downloaded a copy of XP 64 SP2.
    Going to install it in a older puter and experiment.
