Keyboard controls u/s when returning to saved scenario

Post by FrancescSV »

Since the latest update, when returning to a saved scenario the keyboard controls do not work, ie we're unable to move any cab controls except by means of the mouse. When this happens, I've found that going "outside" with view 4 and returning to the cab with keyboard 1 sorts the problem out. This is a solution, but certainly not the solution. Maybe the fact that now when returning to a saved scenario we appear inside the cab, not outside as before, might have something to do with it.

I've also found out that returning to a saved scenario without quitting from RW altogether, ie saving an scenario, leaving the game mode to check a manual, and then returning to the saved scenario, the keyboard commands do actually work.

Has anyone alse experienced this problem???

I have also experienced this since the update (although I had just thought it was intermittent, but I think you are right, it's to do with whether you restart RW or not). When the controls don't work there is a closed tab on the right hand side of the screen which isn't normally there (it's empty if you open it).

Also I have noticed that after loading a scenario saved in cab view, switching to an exterior view while moving results in a graphics error where some of the loco is left behind at the point where you switched (screen shot of what is left behind http://www.flickr.com/photos/49143077@N07/4570017359/).

I too have emailed support.

I noticed in the update news on steam that pre update saved games are saved in a different format than now, so will not work post update, something to do with Binary files?

Well, as far as I can remember, pre-update it didn't save the current view at all, so continuing would always start with the '2' view (I may be wrong though), so yes it does look like something to do with the new format, but possibly only in so much as it allows you to start a scenario in cab view. That's my guess anyway.

I did get a mail back from support the other day asking for more info, so it seems that RS.com are looking into this at any rate.
