      I was running T:ANE version 1.2 and was advised that there was a patch (Build 74539 to 75947) available, which I presume patches it up to the full released version. I downloaded it, but after 3 hours it crashed! I cleared out the "cache/internet" folder in my content, and cleared my system temporary files, and downloaded it again, but after 2.5 hours it crashed again. I am impatient to get it so is there anything I can do, or do I have to await my deluxe boxed copy to arrive in the UK???

      How can i see that my box is shipped. Canīt see it in my page. Downloading the digital version so i can trainz all weekend though. But old school boxes rules, but would be nice to see it shipping status and you say almost all boxes are out of the box and i was early on with kickstarter. Actually as soon as i found out, it was there

      Your 10th aniversary metal box rules, to bad i could not afford a similar thing this time around due to lack of fund. But trainz rules, and i have been here since a loooooong time so you donīt get rid of me

      The errors the first two times were due to runtime errors. The third time it was "Failed to extract the patch". So that is so far a total of 8 hours wasted!!

      Did you turn off your antivirus prior to patching?

      Just received an email saying it has been released, yet when I log into https://www.simulatorcentral.com it says I have no downloads. Where am I supposed to download the full version from?

      Use the MyTrainz option above (especially if you ordered a box version).

      That means you've got a corrupt download unfortunately, or you are using a program that's not 64-bit to extract the files.

      I just download using my browser. No programs outside from that. Re-downloaded and it is okay now. However it is stuck on preparing to install for past 6-7 minutes. Hopefully thats normal.

      Yes, here is a longish wait, (10 minutes +) before you see the green status bar. Then another longer wait for it to finish.

      Hey I need help guys. If I preordered the game on sim central, is there anyway I can also get it on steam? Will we be receiving Game codes to download it on steam?

      JDOMINICK - send a message to anewera@n3vgames.com

      Digitalclips - a couple of weeks is a lot better than 10 years which was the wait after the first version of Trainz. With PC still 90% of our market we are doing the best we can. Not long to wait now (I hope).

      This Trailer is nostalgia and very-very well put together demonstrating the meaning of "A New Era". That Tune should have been the Welcome Screen along with the Video to greet us, all up a very nice peice with Exceptional Accuracy that shows exactly the N3V vision for T:ANE. Now, its time to ride the Stunning rails towards and beyond Trainz, A New Era. You all should feel very proud in the N3V Studio's a Glass of wine I raise to the screen and Say Cheers and thanks for the New Era many happy times Ahead.

      Cheers, Jared.

      You can download the latest full version under your MyTrainz account. This allows you to use a download manager to pick up where you left off if something goes wrong.
      Full details are listed on our Trainz: A New Era FAQ site: http://faq.trainzportal.com/knowledg...load-the-game/

      Hi! Why the developers, when they show their achievements in the development, always limited to the screen-shots? Why not show video of those routes that are actually in the game, so we can evaluate the performance of the game engine?

      Hi NickLon, all our videos are in-game and you can find all the route videos on our T:ANE website here

      On the third attempt, I managed to download the patch up to build 75947, and am continuing to build a large system.
      However I am having a major problem in that my TANE keeps crashing, Trainz stops, and the system returns to the desktop.
      This usually happens either in 'Driver' when saving an episode, or 'Surveyor' when I click on 'Save' in the main dropdown menu, although several times I have not been doing anything at all. The only way that I can get around this in Surveyor is to save every 3-4 minutes.
      There is another thing which is very strange - The cursor 'circle' keeps revolving most of the time when I am working! although I can still access menu options in this state.
      Also - Is it normal for TANE to do a Database Rebuild whilst I am working, and without me having actually called it?
