View Full Version : What Version is This?

I just bought a Trainz Railroad Simulator for $9.99 at Best Buy that looks like it has the 2006 upgrades, but doesn't say 2006 in the title. It was in the budget games in the small jewel cases with sleeves. What version is it? Is it a full 2006? It's by Merscom.

Very difficult to say as there are so many versions of Trainz with similar titles. Install it, tell us the build number as displayed on its menu screen, and we can then let you know what you've bought!

its this one right?
Best Buy Link (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8597761&st=Trainz+Railroad+Simulator&lp=1&type=product&cp=1&id=1191627183803)

that would be TRS2006. I am unsure if it has SP1 or not.

The mention of CMP implies that it's TRS2006. The name implies it's the very first version of Trainz. Who knows what might lie inside the disk case?

This Tower of Babel of umpteen versions of Trainz that Auran has allowed to develop is extremely confusing and may well be putting off a significant number of potential buyers. It's now difficult to know what you're buying even in a physical shop and often impossible when buying online. Sadly, it probably can't be sorted out now due to the complexity of licensing arrangements.
