We have set the auto-patcher live so that users with Community Edition V1.2 (build 74539) can now patch to the latest/release day version of TANE.

We have also launched two new websites today:

The T:ANE Knowledge Base where all your questions can be answered at: http://faq.trainzportal.com/knowledge-base

and

The Trainz Gallery at: http://www.trainzportal.com/mytrainz/index where people can upload screenshots directly from T:ANE and users can view, tag, comment and admire the handiwork of their fellow Trainz fans. The site is still in it's infancy but there is loads of potential to make the Gallery a very popular destination for fans from around the world.

We'ev noticed that some beta restrictions may still be in place for the Gallery - they will be sorted out asap.

Hey Axe - the master of Surveyor :) Good to hear from you
(and for those that don't know, Axe was around almost 15 years ago at a model train show we were at and he showed me ways of using Surveyor I had never seen before!)

Still trying to DL Tane final via MyTrainz - hangs at 5%???
Now trying the update patch - also hangs at 5%???
Looks like it might be slow going in Australia!

Browser or download manager? (Try both)
Just tested here on a Telstra ADSL2 line and having no issues.
We now have 7 different servers - try again. If it stops at 5% talk to your ISP and ask them why.

Took 12 minutes to download the patch here in Alabama USA.

Of course, I work for an ISP.

I am lurking around :)

I think I am a bit rusty in surveyor.

Thanks for the complements though. They were good times. :)

Is there any tricks to get the patcher started? My TANE isn't telling me to patch, like it did for the last build.

Try exiting, reloading, then going into the settings and checking for updates.

Ah there is the check for updates button!

But it didn't help, says that there is no update available.

That build is a few behind. Here's a list of what builds are compatible: http://faq.trainzportal.com/knowledge-base/which-build-do-i-have/ (yours is not listed so it will be a full reinstall for you).

2 versions out of date and it's already not supported! Shows a lot of promise to the rest of the world. I am not fully expecting TS12 support to be discontinued within the next week.

I am this close to ( ||___|| ) asking for a refund and jumping ship from N3V. TANE has been nothing but frustrations, delays, shortcomings,lies. Not a good way to start a game or run a company.

Unfortunately that's always going to be the case for pre-release software versions.

But company-wise it shouldn't be the case for N3V, and while they could take more of a community-oriented and helpful approach, it would seem that overall they are more concerned with stepping over a dollar to pick up a dime. Unfortunately, T:ANE reflects this mindset.

IDK, did anyone here really expect Alpha/Beta versions of a game to continue getting support? I can think of no other games that I've ever encountered personally.... I could maybe see it happening in some very rare and bizarre circumstances, but not this particular case. If You have any version of TANE, they give you a free update to the latest..... I would wager you just missed the close of the update for that particular version. You could perhaps ask them if they'd be willing to reinstate the update/patch to the latest to include your current version, but I would wager 2 things here:
1:Its probably quicker to just reinstall. Just back up your data first
2:If you don't ask at least a little nicely they're never gonna do it....

Finally, I fail to see how this has anything to do with any form of particular greed for dollars, dimes, or nickels for that matter....

I agree and also they didn't have to provide a patch from the beta CE edition up to the shipping version. Most companies require uninstalling the previously installed beta and installing the shipped build, including "greedy" Microsoft.

You better watch out, my Imperial Courier with military drive is sitting right behind your Cobra. My trigger finger is already caressing the fire button :p.

Yes, that was surprising to me in that the patch was sufficient to bring the software up to the shipping version. However, I was noticing some content issues, especially with the Avery-Drexel route, so I downloaded the full installation anyway.

When you try to install the full version, it won't let you until you de-install the previous CE+ version. At that time, the de-installer allows you to keep you downloaded content intact. I noticed no problems with losing content this way.

Installing the new version fixed all previous problems. The final result is outstanding!

As a pointer to the technically challenged: Download a disk defragmenter/optimizer such as Auslogic's Disk Defragmenter (freeware). The massive amount of individual small files comprising T:ANE content will be dispersed throughout your hard drive and will be extremely fragmented. This will slow down your session loads, and hinder performance. Defragment and optimize, and see how much your performance improves!

bit the bullet, unistalled TS12 and CE T:ANE before installing my new digital download release copy. Tried import on laptop before this, of UserData\Local, but it seemed to hang after one fourth of the way. This time, going just take my time and import CDP files instead. That seems best. I downloaded the release yesterday, so I am guessing patch is built in. It did not appear to need updating.
