View Full Version : Driver Commands

December 26th, 2018, 11:01 AM
Does anyone know of an easy way to copy and past driver commands so that they can be kept outside of trainz? I've tried Microsoft's Access, Power Point, etc. So far for me the easiest is using Window's file system and Notepad. By using the list of commands at http://online.ts2009.com/mediaWiki/index.php/Session_Rule_List_with_Parameters I can list them to copy and past into new list for my next project.

This wiki article is great for an understanding of the various commands, but it's also helpful to have the actual commands as they are used in a route.

In TS12 I took the profile.dat file and loaded it into a file viewer. I think I used the old DOS List.com to do that. With the profile loaded, being a binary file, I had to search through carefully until I saw the actual schedules for the drivers. There I saw the driver's name followed by the navigate to, track marks, and other stuff.

I highlighted the text and copied it to a notepad file and used that as a reference when recreating the schedules. It was a pain but it was do able.

Ideally it would be great if we could not only print out driver schedules but also the route schematic as well.

I improvised a solution,

I made a spreadsheet with the lines on it for my big Remberg route.
Each line is colour coded and seperated into
LB, Local
XC, Cross country.
IC, Intercity.

I have it open on my second screen and enter the staions into the driver schedule, then I fill in call at, drive to etc.
