Hello,

So in short, I've tried to install a couple of the F7s from the Jointed Rail website, collected all dependencies, etc. but no matter what I do they aren't loading properly in my Trainz 2010. :'( I was pretty sure 2010 was okay for these locos as there was a reskin contest a couple years ago for them but now I'm wondering, could anyone lend a hand? :confused: Below is a screenshot of how they show up in the Railyard, click for full size.:)

Thanks,
Jon

P.S. - I have been up all night trying to puzzle through this on my own, so yes the emotes are completely necessary, if for no other reason than that they amuse me. :hehe: Off to bed! :sleep:

There is a setting in your video options (the DirectX/OpenGL page) that says something along the lines "Enable Hardware Compression" or something. You need to check/uncheck that box. (I don't remember if it needs to be checked or not, but it is wrong on your system).

The problem is actually related to hardware accelerated texture compression. See http://trainz.shaneturner.co.uk/tutorials/index.php?page=black-textures-issue for my guide on fixing it.

That's good - my tutorials on the subject are pretty good at dealing with it.
