View Full Version : How to add custom content to Trainz?

May 12th, 2007, 06:46 AM
Could someone explain this to me? I've looked for posts, faqs, etc. but can't find a basic explanation of what I need to do to get the downloads installed in the program.

THanks in advance for any help.

I you've registered your copy of Trainz, you should have access to the Download Station (link on the top bar).
Clicking on the download (helper) should automatically install the asset,
the Download Page button allows you to save the .cdp file to your hard drive for later installation.

I have only the original version of Trainz and it doesn't seem to come with the download helper.

I did download the download helper from this site and install it, but I don't see any way to access it from the Programs menu or when I start Trainz itself.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi Bede,

Go to the directory where downoladhelper.exe is, right click on the file and select create shortcut, then drag the shortcut to your desktop. When you left click on the shortcut download helper will open and you can enter the path you want the downloads to install to.

Hope this helps,

Trainz Download Helper doesn't work on the Original Trainz version. There is a thread that talks about the Original Trainz version found here (http://forums.auran.com/trainz/showthread.php?t=1500).

Thank you very much. That appeared to do the trick.

If a Mod sees this perhaps it could be posted as a sticky or in a FAQ.
