View Full Version : Why is there not a website for free downloads for editions not supported?

I am not a person who lives off the internet, I am an old fart who found this game on discount in the store and decided to load it on my computer which is not connected to the internet. My computer has xp running it, and the board I put in there I have found out does not support the new FX processors, so I am stuck with my AMD athlon 6 core. I am a farmer now, and although these new items and games seem very exciting, I do not have the money at the moment to be buying all new hardware and software to support new platforms.

On my game it seems there is a download station, which I have found out you can load planes and helicopters from a locomotive category. So I signed up to this website logged in my key numbers, and I now have a logo under my user name showing I have a 2010 editor edition.

All this time that I am trying to download from the ftp site to upload to my Xp computer, I am not being made aware that my game is no longer being supported. Instead Iím being told to purchase a first class ticket to gain access to the ftp site which did not work either.

It is only after contacting the website that I find out about the non support for 2010 and before.

So here I sit wondering why if those kuids are no longer being supported by this website, then why canít we have a link to a site that gives us free downloads of those kuids for older versions?

If not could someone email me the packages for the euro helicopter and tiger moth 3 plane? This is all I am looking for for this game. Can someone help me out with this?

Because it costs money to maintain a website hosting that stuff. The Download Station contains hundreds (thousands even) of gigabytes of content on it that costs a lot of money to keep, not to mention the cost of all the users accessing it.

You will need to register your game in order to download anything, FCT or no FCT. With a registered game, you should be able to access the ftp site... which requires special software.

I thought I explained myself fairly clear my brother? I did register my game , I have bought a first class ticket, and the headquarters for trainz has told me I cannot access anything at all with my 2010 version, for it is not supported by the site anymore.

I’m pretty sure I explained how I typed in my key numbers?

Sometime I feel like the responses I get are from an AI instead of a person, when it starts explains about how to use the site, after what I just wrote?

If no one can help me that is fine, it is no big deal guys.......it is what it is.

I don't see a logo under your usename, if you did register, don't have anyway of knowing that beyond the logo as I don't work for N3V. But that's neither here nor there...

An FCT should provide you access to the DLS regardless of the Trainz version you have.


Q: Can I still access the Download Station after the end-of-support date?
A: Access granted to you by the unsupported product may be terminated. If you have purchased access through other means (newer products, First Class Ticket, etc.) then your access will continue thanks to these products.

I went back and read the Life-Cycle Policy page (http://online.ts2009.com/mediaWiki/index.php/Trainz_Life-Cycle_Policy)... as I don't use an out-of-date product, I don't have the need to know the details beyond providing fellow members help. According to the FAQ, if you have an out-of-date product & FCT you will have to download the content you want from the Download Station website, and not the Content Manage software.


At the current time, we offer support for using an FCT with the DLS web site to manually download content. We do not offer support for using an FCT with Content Manager (or similar) in an unsupported product.

As for sending you content, from the DLS. That is something that is generally frowned down upon here, and in most cases illegal (depends on the license, by default it is)... you might find someone around that would be willing to however.

If you are registered, then your product should appear next to your username. Ensure you are logging into the forums here with exactly the same username you used to register your software. This is your as your My Trainz account that is also used to contact the DLS and keep track of all your purchases.

If you have done that, then I recommend contacting the helpdesk here regarding your registration issues. They will assist you with this regardless of the program version.

http://support.trainzportal.com/

RE the FCT:

Once you've got your registration straightened out, go into My Trainz and ensure your FCT has been activated. FCTs are not activated automatically.

Good AfternoonFrom the 1st of September 2014, we have ended support for Trainz Simulator 2010 and older (TS2010, TS2009, TC3, TC1/2, TRS2006, TRS2004, UTC (Trainz Ultimate Collection), Trainz 1.3) due to their age (4 years, and older - TS2010 is now 6 years old), and as such we no longer provide technical support for these editions, as well as support for any online function of these editions of Trainz software (including the download station).


As such, we will not be testing any changes/updates to the Download Station with unsupported editions of Trainz. However, it is still possible to download content from the download station via the DLS website, using the 'FTP' link in the 'download details' of the item on the Download Station website ( http://dls.trainzportal.com/index.php ). However, please keep in mind that the specific method you will need to use to access the DLS in future may also change. If you have not registered a supported edition of Trainz in your account, then you will also require a First Class Ticket to be able to access the download station in future, and to be able to use the search functions on the Download Station website.


Please see the following for further information on the Trainz Life-Cycle Policy: http://online.ts2009.com/mediaWiki/index.php5/Trainz_Life-Cycle_Policy

I went to the the ftp site with the page that has 2 small windows for username and password, signed in both ways with my password and the long password it says to use, but neither worked, nothing happened when I hit enter.


The dls shows me the plane but only show me an active button to download with content manager. Written below is a kuid , followed by a sentence that says for ftp users, but there no hyperlink for it.

This seems to have stirred the pond a little, so I’m just gonna let it go my friend. Some things are just not worth the hassle. I bought the game, became a member, bought the first class ticket, but cannot seem to get 2 packages for all that effort. There is no need to beat a dead horse. Life is too short for them roads my friend. You have a great day.

Yes but only content at the version you have registered.

There are other web sites with content. jatws.org is one but I suspect most content is for TS12 or later. If your computer will run TS2010 then it should run TS12.

The FTP login info is a red herring, don't need it, pretty much not used as such now. Assuming you have activated the FCT and it's the same username you use for 2010 which should also be the same username you purchased it with and registered it with.
All you need to do on the web page is click download, then click the Big Blue Download FTP button, no need to use an ftp client or use passwords etc if you use the button. It will then download to your download folder from which you can import it to TS2010, that's File, Import Content if I'm remembering 2010 correctly. Drag an drop into the Content Manager Window may also work.

At first I thought that but realised that he could not have asked N3V or tried to download unless he had connected to the Internet therefore assumed he meant not normally connected.

Two computers by the look of it, thus the need to download by FTP on one and install the cdp's on the other one.

Note: An Athlon 6 Core should be more than capable of running Win7, got an Athlon 3 Core now in the spare parts pile that was running win10 albeit a bit slow even ran TANE on low settings no problems with 2010 or TS12

Okay guys here’s the layout.......

My XP Computer has the 2010 game on it, and it is no longer able to connect to internet.

I have connection through another computer, but that computer has the windows 10 platform and will not load the older game platform.

The connected computer is where I signed up and logged in my key numbers for membership and a FCT.

I have used ftp sites in the past to transfer songs to other musicians because of the wave files, so I would assume if I have given all the info that I could download from the ftp site to my online computer file like would the wave files.

Then put it on a memory stick and download it to the XP Computer.


Really guys we’re puttin’ too much butter on this piece of bread. :)

TRS2010 will run on Win10, just need to download DirectX 9C runtimes and install, they happily exist with the newer versions, download from Microsoft here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109 just download then run the setup.

As I said you do not need the FTP login details clicking the FTP button will just download the item, probably need dependencies as well which will be listed, be a lot easier on your other PC though.

A note regarding Malc's link above regarding DX9C - be aware that it's a two stage process. Just doing the first part does not mean that the runtimes are installed - you have to go into the folder specified and run dxsetup to finish the job.

What happened when you tried to install it on the computer with Windows 10? I have Windows 10 and I installed 2010 on it and it worked just fine. The problem appears to be that the computer you have 2010 on is not connected to the internet. If you want to download stuff off the Download Station into 2010 it has to have an internet connection. If you download via ftp on the computer with Internet access, you can then put that onto the memory stick and install it onto the computer you have Trainz 2010 on. Keep in mind that you can only download stuff for anything Trainz 2010 and before. Also, I don't know where you live, but all my relatives live in the Appalachian Mountains in northeastern Tennessee and southern Virginia. I myself live at the southernmost end of the Blue Ridge Mountains, just outside the Chattahoochee National Forest, and I wouldn't live anywhere else other than the Appalachians.

Went to auran.com It shows my username in the top box with bottom box for my password.

Above this it says I need to register. I click the button.

It shows empty window boxes for me to put in....User name.....password......but then it says to confirm password in next window......email.....real name.

I entered my username, both passwords old and new on separate tries, confirmed it, put in my email address, my name, and both times it said username is already registered, and email is already being used, which means I am registered, my ticket expires Oct 16th, which means itís active..........I have been on the dls, but there are very few ftp buttons showing up on the page to download it, and the ones I can are missing dependencies. No helicopter or plane is downloadable by an ftp button with full dependency, the one that weíre missing dependencies say are not valid on the dls

So what now Scotland Yards? LOL!!

You have to type in the original UN, PW, EMail address that you originally used ... You can not re-register the game twice ... If you keep changing things the N3V servers will not know who you are ... If the original game was previously registered by someone else, you can not re-register it under your name

”All I ever wanted to do was be a pilot, and fly a Tiger Moth 3 plane”

You can't fly a plane like in a flight simulator.
The plane or helicopter is actually a train that runs on invisible track.
No way of free roming. No way of going to any place you want.

ENOUGH!

I’m not gonna jump through hoops for these kuids by signing up to other sites, especially when those are not the plane and helicopter I was requesting, and paid to obtain.

I was was told you have an ftp site, If I registered and purchased a first class ticket I could use that area for downloading.

I did register, I did purchase a fct, but I am not allowed on.

A button on my page says I need to register, but when I do, it says My info is already being used.

And now the only solution you guys are giving me is to sweep my money, info, and fct under the rug and go sign up to another site?

Plus you want to tell me you don’t send things by email because that’s illegal? Really? I am a member with a fct, so what part would be illegal, if the ftp site is not working, and I am only wanting 2 items?


To Richard, the quote was a joke, the reason for the plane and helicopter is for an elaborate canyon area on a route I’m building.

I am ending this thread here as my account seems to have turn into riddle with no answer, but only redirection now.

I apologize for causing a stir in your forum with my request. Take care.

shaneturner12
September 19th, 2018, 08:10 AM
The reason regarding the sending of items is actually due to copyright issues rather than being a member.

One thing I would like to check is that you've activated your First Class Ticket - this can be done by clicking MyTrainz at the top then clicking Download Tickets on the left hand side then scrolling down the page to the First Class Tickets section. It's normally possible to download if you are using the Download Station link above by clicking the Download Page link next to the item you want then clicking the FTP option on the resulting screen that appears.

There are some items though that are not on the Download Station which do involve getting them from another site - this is usually due to the creator choosing not to upload the content to the Download Station.

Whilst I understand you want to end the thread I'm keen on helping where possible regarding the problem.

I'm not a farmer, but if you didn't have a successful harvest at the end of the first season, would you give up and find another occupation or try it next season? It appears you've persevered and continue to farm instead of giving up after a unsuccessful harvest. Do the same thing with Trainz, use the same perseverance you use to farm to get Trainz to work for you.

Click on download using FTP button instead of Download Helper.
File gets downloaded, but may need dependencies so read description carefully on the page.


The file is downloaded as a CDP. Aka Content Data Package.


Start up Content Manager.

Click on Import CDPs...
Browse to where you downloaded the CDP(s) to.

Here’s a quick question?

When you go to a restaurant and order the steak dinner, with sides, and a drink, and they just bring you out the steak, and when you ask about the sides and drink, and they tell you, “Oh, that would be in the building next to this one.”, would you be happy about your dinner?

This is how I feel about downloading an ftp file from the blue ftp button only to find it is missing many dependencies that I need to find like some scavenger hunt, on a site that told me it had an ftp site, and now that I paid my money out, I find out it doesn’t. If this is how your new world is working, I want no part of it.

And we thought computers would make our lives easier, instead it has left us lazy, ignorant, and full of rage. I think it’s time to go fishing boys........

SO THERE IS NO FTP SITE!!..........now how hard was that guys?

the ftp button only downloads the engine, the dependencies go to download cart which usually shows half of the being invalid. Plus without an ftp site I cannot download these dependencies.

Not true.

The asset details page will bring up a list of available dependencies.

Look below where it says DOWNLOAD FTP. You'll see a section for dependencies that you'll need to download one at a time. Usually the dependencies for things are pretty small being a bogey, engine spec file, etc.

The DOWNLOAD Helper is broken and has been for sometime due to browser security things, which have ruined it. This even in its best days never worked like it should anyway so you're not missing anything.

I may not be able to help you, but could you explain the 'half of the being invalid'?

When the page pops up with the content download or ftp down, below the two buttons is a list of dependencies not included in the file you are downloading. It says to down through cart, but the cart shows half of the dependencies as being not valid. I hope you are reading this thread from the beginning.

My XP COMPUTER
with trainz 2010 On it
(not online)

ONLINE COMPUTER
no game on it
(using hard drive and memory stick for transferring to My XP COMPUTER)

I cannot download an entire package without the ftp site, and there is not one for me to sign into an use.

So we can stop now.
I promise you, now that I know there is no longer an ftp site available, I will not be responding anymore to this thread. Take care.........gone fishin’.

forget about the cart system = the best way to get it all working 100% is to have the pc with the software on it access to the internet and let TS2010 do the heavy lifting it self via its in built content manager

Other wise your going to have to use some very time consuming work rounds as TS2010 as you know is no longer direct supported - all the items you want are on the DLS but your going to have to download each hand by hand off the DLS via ftp - other wise the system will try to give you the current version of an asset not the TS2010 version which are on the DLS but need to be searched for and down loaded by manually for every kuid

Can I ask why the Ts2010 machine is not able to access the internet = is it you do not want the machine to have access due to security or a lack of IT knowledge - creating temporary network these days is so easy and would save many hours of work and frustration = what you want to do is possible with 2010 but very time consuming and will need some guidance to get the kuids into 2010 i can help but being on the world time zone can play havoc with getting answers to you

Or you could load up TS2010 on the machine that is connected to the internet and download with the download manager which will bring in the dependencies. Then you can save them as a .cdp and copy them onto the other machine.

For fishing may I suggest middleton with canal mind you I don't think it runs on TS2010, the narrow boats are all 3.5 or TS12.

Clearly the OP has no patience for Trainz, as Trainz does require patience, and re-trying of things ... Trainz does not run automatically "right out of the box" ... Without patience, Trainz is not for those without patience

I can see when someone wants to quit ... let them quit

You want help ... ask for help, and you will get help here

Get Free Skype IM, and get instant help, one on one, in real time

Skype UN: cascaderailroad (https://go.skype.com/windows.desktop.download)

I can download via FTP ... and FTP works perfectly fine

If the OP thinks he has problems now ... just wait till he is required to edit constant errors and faults, and fix hundreds of config files, and backdate hundreds of higher Trainz version dependent assets trainz-build numerals, so that they will run in TS10

It appears you don't see what I'm seeing here?


Okay then.....I will have to prove it to you.

I gonna ask some simple questions that should only require a simple to answer.

First off I'm registered, and my number is registered, I purchased a fct and it says it is active until Oct 16th. This means I should have access according to you guys?
So....

1st - Where is the link for me to use the ftp site on trainz, and how do I log into it?

To answer your questions:

1st question - yes (unless for some weird reason N3V haven't set your permissions right).
2nd question - don't bother trying to use a FTP client as the Restricted folder where the content is stored is hidden. You need to use the advice I gave in my previous post to get items individually.

Please....Please....stop insulting my intelligence if you’re not going to read this entire thread.

If you want to see what is happening, why doesn’t someone take a computer without the game on it, sign on to trainz, go to the download station, type in planes in description, click on the details for tigermoth 3, hit the ftp button, and tell me what you get?

As for patience, I program dmx lighting using midi through Ableton live software, I mix music in my studio, I am a farmer, and I love playing chess. My patience shortens when I’m being lied to, which the website did by telling me to purchase a ticket when I went to the restricted auran area instead of saying it was shut down. It also shortens when I paid for a service, don’t receive it, and don’t get my money back either.

Takes a lot of patience to create this route I’m creating as well, if I can I will post a few shots of it.

As for being online? I don’t like being corralled into doing something, like being forced to join sites like steam etc. in order to play a game you purchased in the store. If you have to download from there site, why are they selling a disc for you to load on your computer unless it has the software for them to have access to your computer? Why waste the money on making disc? I enjoy my privacy, what little is left of it.

I wasn’t on here to have judgement laid on me because I want to download 2 engine packages for my game, a helicopter, and a Tiger Moth 3 plane, and that was it. Just 2 packages was all I have been trying to obtain, nothing more.

So please stop recommending what I should be doing, I found my answer out, and that’s that. There is no open ftp site anymore. Case closed.
