    Default Pasword Central Valley 2

    I sent an email to the adress mentioned in the documents, but I received a message back address unknown.
    Does anybody know how to get the password for this route

    Yours truly,

    Martin

    Hi

    I'm not an expert and have no direct knowledge of
    this Route but I am interested in the route.

    Which install file are you referring to??

    Cheers

    The route is from 2003, I wonder if the builder is still around?

    The instructions have no author. it's a BETA and 19 years old. Appears the author didn't follow up with it. If you got a unknown/invalid email message I'd speculate you're out of luck regarding the password. Many others have reported a invalid email.

    Freeware requiring a password:

    Even prior to my commercial years, I've just never understood the extremes some freeware content creators have gone to prevent their free items from being distributed and freely used by the community it was supposedly aimed at.

    There is no potential for loss of profit due to piracy, for the item is not commercial, yet, there are such overly restrictive EULA's on so much freeware, that once the original author moves on (either in shifting interests or literally) it truly hurts the remaining (and dwindling) MSTS/OR enthusiasts that can no longer have any hope of access to their so-called "free" item.

    Agreed ... imo...none of the restrictions put into so called freeware, are enforceable or sustainable, they are simply some boilerplate that looks important. Specifying "Public Domain" is the way to go. No confusion within the community about what's what.

    As a moderator, Sniper297 posted in his many wonderful stock and his
    Chicago routes "freeware means just that, do anything you wat with it".

    That is not verbatim, just a summary of his attitude...

    I miss his "no nonsense" input in this forum

    Cheers

    Hi Martin.

    I think this is a classic case of circular logic, you need a password to open the zip file
    and you need to open the zip file to get the password....

    However, looking at the file names in the zip I am sure the author is way above my pay grade....

    Cheers
