Many new trains and routes for openBVE at
Is this a standalone sim? I downloaded it but can't work out how to start driving. Not very intuitive
Driving control keys for openBVE vary depending on the locomotive or MU;
the basic control keys (assuming no custom train DLL is used) are:
Reverser [Ff] [Vv]
Brake [,] [.] [/] for Trains With Seperate BrakePower Handles, Typical On Locomotives
or [Qq] [!1] for Trains With Combined BrakePower Handles, Typical On DMUs & EMUs
Power [Aa] [Zz]
Klaxon [Enter] [Pad+] [Pad-]
For trains that use custom PlugIns aka DLLs, including many British and NewYork trains,
there are "safeties" that require several Keys strokes to get the train moving;
read the Plugin DLL literature (TXT or PDF file) with those trains for help.
Although openbve is promoted as "cross platform", it runs best under Windows,
as some custom PlugInsDLLs do not work under Linux or Apple operating systems.
Also the dependencies (.NET, OpenAL, etc) must be installed
and the folders for the routes and trains must be arranged proper
for the program to open and find the route & train files.
See this webpage for help installing the dependencies, the program, and the folders:http://obts.wikia.com/wiki/OBTS_Wiki
