Some routes/trains not working

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to drive the Metro Comeng train on a few routes including the Footscray-Ballarat route and the Main Illawarra route, to no avail. Either it produces some sort of error message upon loading the route or the train doesn't move.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have not tried it yet, I will give it a go and see what happens.

Tried it on Russel Beers Seymour route, Works, one has to raise the pantograhs first though using the P key, Note on the model the pantos are shown raised, you still have to raise them though, it seems these have not been animated.

It has been pointed on another forum that some fo the consists need to be deleted..........

From Melbournesparks (from Rail Victoria Forums)

"Apologies for that, I was a bit sloppy with the testing and missed something. You can get rid of the errors by deleting the following consists from your MSTS/Trains/Consists directory:

comeng_3_car_set2.con
comeng_6_car_mixed_set.con
comeng_6_car_mixed_set2.con

I'll update the installer as soon as possible."

Thanks woodford. I know about the testing and the train moving was not an issue.

Do you have any idea why some of my routes aren't working?

Does the known issues in the readme help at all?

Does OR's log give any clues, the log is usually a real good place to look.

Other than that one could ask on the openrails forums at trainsim.com or elvas tower.

I only copied one consist over one of the disk brake ones and I do not currently have the Illawarra line loaded (I think), I run Openrails separate from MSTS these days.as MSTS does NOT like endless playing around with ENG files.

At the moment my testing is rather limited as I am rebuilding two of my PC's which does not leave me a spare machine to run windows on, my normal OS being Linux. The rebuild work proceeds slowly because of this endless afternoons and evenings of 35 degree plus heat.
Theres going to be a good number of people certainly around here happy when this summer is over.

Just tried the MetroComeng on the Illawarra route worked OK.

I did not work when I first tried it, examming the log file showed a mass of sound system errors, now I run OR on an isolated directory, ie it does not run in the MSTS directory OR having its own copy of GLOBAL TRAINS and ROUTES, the problem in this case the Illawarra route required the presence of the SOUND directory once that was copied over everyhing workedOK.

I managed to fix it until I reinstalled MSTS. I can't remember what I did though.

Does it work in MSTS?

I never run MSTS except to use the editor and tools, the latest experimental version of OR is ALWAYS used to play trains.

Try re-running installme.bat.

FYI, next time you need to take a screenshot of a dialog, use Ctrl+Alt+Print Screen.

Go to your MSTS installation folder, then double-click on the ROUTES folder. Double-click on the TA_VR_NE_1950s folder. Backup your saves and any activities you created, then delete the entire folder. Re-download the route if you need to and run the installer.

Can you provide a copy of the OR log file producing the error, OR is usually very good at providing clues on why it fails anything, one must be able to see the log file though.
