openBVE may have carried on the legacy of BVE for modern platforms, but it's easy to forget that also the original simulator is still alive !

mackoy recently released the final version of BVE 5, BVE 5.8, and now also a new version: BVE 6.
For now the Uchibo and Keisei routes, the default routes of BVE 5 are the only ones available for this new iteration.

With BVE 6, legacy compatibility for Windows Vista and 7 (as well as 32-bit) is dropped. Minimum required OS is Windows 8.1 64-bit now.
