Re: AP 313

No argument from me there.
The save/reload has always been the Achilles Heal of this sim.
I really enjoy it when it works. Even with RWTools, it can result in more time swapping and fixing than it takes to run the actual scenario.
This is why I have always kept MSTS/OR on my system.

Re: AP 313

Ah, thanks. It IS a saved game. Not the DRA - made sure of that.
Could be the issue, although disappointing from a customer perspective.

AP 313

I am having quite the time changing power on this unit. I finally figured out how to go from DC to AC. You have to wait from the line light to go on as well as the 25kv light. If the manual states so, I overlooked it. The AC to DC is simple. Press pant down and reset. Doesn't work. Or at least not f...

Re: Disk 2

Hi Warren, It could be that your old CD/DVD drive had come to the end of its time - the lasers have a finite life! I don't recollect any 'disk 1 reinstall problem', but that could just my (lack of) memory!! Cheers, Ged My thought as well, except when I ran the GR Platinum DVD this morning it took r...

Re: Disk 2

Ged Really have not had time to trouble shoot MSTS yet. I was having an impossible time trying to install SCP, BC1, and MEP. Finally opted to go to the shop an buy a $20 LG DVD/CD USB reader. The clerk said, well you still have windows 10. But I had run out of solutions from google. Hooked it up and...

Re: Disk 2

Ged For some reason the copy/paste kept throwing the same error. I worked on this for hours, and finally stumbled over some commentary on ISO files. I did not even know the term. After doing some research I downloaded a file winCDEmu which creates ISO files. It took quite some time to make the ISO's...

Re: Disk 2

The contents copied without errors.
Tried different compatibility modes, no luck.
Still stopping at 29% with failure to verify media.
Looks like I am out of luck. I have to different disc packages so I know its not the discs.
Thanks for trying to help.

Disk 2

Sadly, I had to reinstall MSTS and ran into the disk 2 issue. After pouring through forums I followed the suggestion to copy files to a temp folder and install from there. I successfully copied the files from disc to HD but now get "failed to verify media" at the 29% install. Any suggestions appreci...

German Railroads Platinum

Finally picked this up on ebay for $10.
Apparently at one time there was an English translation mentioned on these forums.
Does anyone have a copy they might share?
Thanks

Thank you. That was indeed the problem.
Have to get the unit going out of Brighton with the autopilot, but several stations up the dynamic finally stopped cutting in with the throttle lock.
Not sure what is going on there.

Class 319

I am attempting to run the "Beginning of Thameslink" scenario out of Brighton and have encountered two issues. First is one I frequently see, throttle locked, release dynamic. When hitting the dynamic I see it is already at 0% and the throttle remains locked. Second is "Engine stopped". Usually with...
