Thread: Installing and using Run 8 in 2020

    Default Installing and using Run 8 in 2020

    Hey guys, I purchased Run 8 and Cajon in 2016 and I'm wondering what I need to install to be up to date as of 2020. I have:

    run8v2_install.exe
    run8_bnsf_cajonsub.exe
    r8_v2_cajon_update_11052016.exe
    r8_bnsf_cajon_sub_update_122314.exe

    Should I be using any or all of these, or is there a more current installer I can get?

    Also, have there been any advances in Run 8 (official or third party) for playing in single player, or is it still essential to use multiplayer to get the most enjoyment? If so are there any active servers open to new users?

    Thanks!

    Since you are doing a complete re-install, do it in this order.

    run8v2_install.exe
    run8_bnsf_cajonsub.exe
    BNSF Cajon Sub Update 2 - 10.03.2017]
    http://www.run8-services.com/downloa...ubupdate02.exe
    Run 8 V2 Update 9 (11.25.2019)
    http://www.3dts-services.com/downloa...2_update09.exe

    http://www.run8studios.com/updates_dlc.shtml

    The two old Cajon updates you have are out dated since they were combined into BNSF Cajon Sub Update 2 along with some extra scenery.

    Remember once you have installed every thing go to your install - \Run8Studios\Run8 Train Simulator V2\Content\V2Routes\Regions\SouthernCA - folder and make copies of the following files etc.

    Config.ind
    Config_OriginalV2.ind
    Hump.r8
    Traffic.r8

    And save those files to somewhere else on your computer or USB stick etc.
    Run 8 can be played single player and there are still active multiplayer servers.
