    Default New Route CGW_2007

    Hi everybody, me yet again.

    Early this morning I Downloaded the new Route CGW_2007 for MSTS/Open Rails. Reading says:- SCALERAIL, NEWROADS and XTRACKS are required, all of which Are all Installed.

    My Question is should this be run as a MiniRoute because at the moment the Route Runs OK i.e Graphics are OK but ther is no Track apart from when you get to a Bridge, but when crossed no Track again.

    Any help Please?

    Many thanks

    Paul.

    I'm not familiar with the CGW, but none of those requirements require a mini-route. Scalerail, Xtracks and newroads can all co-exist with other routes not using them.

    There could be other reasons to run a mini-route (but I don't know). And you could choose to have a mini-route just to keep things organized so your TRAINSET folder has only CGW equipment.

    That no track is displayed means that the files are not where open rails is calling for them. You could have put scale rail in the wrong place. Or the route might call for them in a non-standard place.

    Hi Christopher, thanks for reply.

    I am getting nowhere with this one. Have tried reinstalling ScaieRail, Newroads and XTracks but still no Track being Displayed apart from when crossing Bridges.

    Many thanks

    The route should be all scalerail so I dont know why you would need xtracks

    What version of Tsection is in the global folder? All of those packages install competing versions of it. Open that file up and read the number at the top.

    Also, open the TRK file inside the route and read what it says in the ROUTEID line. Whatever that is is what the routes folder needs to be named

    Make sure the textures for scalerail are in the routes textures folder.

    Also, post some images of the problem. Missing can mean multiple things.

    Also, zip up and attach an open rails log

    Hi geepster775, thanks for reply.

    TSection is Build 00042UK, however, cannot find anything called a TRK file.

    Many thanks

    Paul.

    Hi Paul,
    In each route's folder, there MUST be a .trk file!

    Cheers,

    Hi Ged, you must think i'm becoming a right pain.

    I've just been through all my Route Folders and can find no mention of a .TRK File anywhere unless it's found within another Yellow Folder in MSTS.

    Must be doing something seriously wrong?

    Regards

    Paul.

    tsection build 44 is what comes with the latest scalerail.

    My suggestion is replace that with build 52 in the library here

    Hi Paul,
    In the CGW_2007 route folder, you will find a file called : cgw.trk

    You should, of course, have unpacked the cgw_2007.zip file and placed the resulting CGW_2007 folder into the ROUTES folder in your C:\1MSTS (or C:\1MSTS\Train Simulator) installation!

    Cheers,
    Ged

    If you can't find any *.trk files, you probably didn't uncheck "Hide file extensions on known file types" in the Windows Explorer folder options. I have no clue why they even do this.
