        Can someone explain why this gets so much worse FPS than TSM 1 on the same route with the same graphic settings?

        Trainz Simulator 2 that I downloaded from the Mac App Store crashes after I press Start Trainz. I created an account to see if that was the cause of the app crashing. Turned off Little Snitch, rebuilt permissions, still the app crashes.

        Please Help

        I'm actually trying to figure this out - if I find an easy way to do it all at once I will post it here.

        Oh, I see. I misinterpreted it as a TS12 update.

        When will the patch become available to allow Trainz for Mac 2 to run on 10.7 ? It crashes on startup with this version of MacOS !!

        We have testing underway on 10.7 and we will report as soon as we have identified a solution. from there, it may be another week or so before Apple approve the update, although sometimes they respond to urgent requests.

        The new version with support for 10.7 is now available from the Mac Store. We have also released Cabon City and Murchison 2 DLC packs and Settle & Carlisle is still getting some final difficult-to-repro-bugs sorted out.

        Is one of those bugs downloading before it's supposed to because I have S&C already?

        I'm not sure of the exact bugs in question. If you have access and it works for you, then all is well.

        Can someone explain why this gets so much worse FPS than TSM 1 on the same route with the same graphic settings?
        Not yet - we aren't seeing this behaviour at all and no beta testers reported it either. Therefore it appears there is an issue that affects some people and not others.
        Does this happen with all routes or one in particular? It could be a particular asset (including a script) that is causing the problem.
        If you test with a blank baseboard and add a few objects, is there a difference already, or does the map need to be heavily populated for the issue to occur?

        Sales update:
        Just for fun, I thought I would share some interesting stats with you after 1 week of sales.
        In the Highest Grossing category, we have reached #1 Overall App in 1 country ... can you guess which one? (Clue: Borat)
        Also, #1 Game in 18 countries (incl Russia, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Norway, France...) (and #2 in NZ, Australia, Canada, #3 in Germany, UK, #5 in USA)
        #1 Simulation in 31 countries (the above plus Germany, Canada, Australia, Sweden, Denmark, NZ...) (UK reached #2, USA #3)
        #1 Family in 38 Countries (the above plus UK, USA, Japan)

        darn it! Just as I buy the first trainz mac! I have to say, this really would have edged me to buy it had the S&C DLC been available too...
