    TRS2019 Hardware Requirements

    Trainz Railroad Simulator 2019 provides users with a large range of optional features to enhance the graphics. With each enhancement, of course comes some performance penalty.


    Click the image to see the full version.

    Just as your old black and white telly didn't magically start showing colour pictures in the 70s, and your phone didn't take photographs in the 90's, your 2012 computer isn't going to allow you to turn on all the bells and whistles in 2018.

    Ok, technically you might hear some crossing bells and steam whistles but you won't actually see all the new graphical features ).

    In the examples below, we've used UserBenchmark scores to indicate the level required for each performance setting. You can run your own hardware test here to find your UserBenchmark score and then compare this to the various options below.

    In short, a score of 50% means that your system is capable of half the performance of a i7-7740X CPU matched with a GTX 1070 GPU. A UserBenchmark Score of 25% means your system is four times slower than the benchmark machine.

      Thank you for any help you can give.
      Realistically for both TS19 and TANE you need something like GTX 1060

      https://benchmarks.ul.com/hardware/g...e+940MX+review for a comparison to your card. It's about 20% of the power of a GTX 1060.

      Having said that try Middleton for laptops it should run and that will give you an idea of what sort of layout will run on your hardware.

      Вы играл в Train Simulator 2018 ??? Поиграйте на самых ультрах настройках и вы поймете, что там тормозов и глюков нету. А ваши низкие параметры рассчитаны на сильный компьютеры . Переделайте свой движок хватит обманывать людей и вымогать деньги не доведенную до ума игру . ( Переделайте совой джок игры как в Train Simulator 2018 потому как ваш движок игры требует много оперативный памяти . Вы думаете у всех мощные компьютеры ??? Сделайте нормально движок игры, что бы можно было играть на слабых компьютерах . ) У меня нормальная игровая видео карта 2047 МБNVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB так , как и игровой компьютер у меня все абсолютно игры которые рассчитаны на мощные компьютеры идут все на ультра ( Tom Clancy's The Division, Train Simulator 2018 , GTA 5 и так далее и не надо мне тут рассказывать, что у меня слабая видео карта. Получается все игры идут на ультра а именно ваша игра нет ? А не слишком ли дорого ваш симулятор обходиться ???? Почему я должен покупать видеокарту которая стоит не малые денег именно под ваш симулятор ??? ( ПОЛУЧАЕТСЯ КОГДА СТАВИШЬ ВСЕ НА УЛЬТРА А ТЕНИ ОТКЛЮЧАЕШЬ ИГРА ВООБЩЕ ЛЕТАЕТ И НЕ ЧЕГО НЕ ТОРМОЗИТ) . Как только включаешь тени на высоко не на ультра даже и поставил немного поджимного состава все игра начинает тормозит. Извините в таком случай проще играть в Train Simulator 2018 и он на много по реалистичней чем ваш . Это ваши проблемы и решайте их вам еще раз повторюсь решайте проблему с движком игры и с тенями это не игра а мучения жду ответа .

      Will any new version of Trainz take advantage of Metal on the mac platform to overcome the woeful performance of non supported nvidia cards on the mac ? . Noticia de angola

      if send a Free Key to JayZ2Cents and linustechtips on youtube they are great about testing gpus with games, and your game can be a critical GPU killer with the render load. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY STATE YOUR GAME IS DESIGNED AROUND NVIDIA GRAPHICS CARDS, i upgrades to an amd R290 specifically to make this game and two others work better due to their open world graphics detail.....only to find i wasted my money on this game.
      BECAUSE IF YOU STATE CLEARLY, THERE IS LESS COMPLAINTS AND MORE COMPLIMENTS WHICH GENERATE 'BUY' RECOMMENDATIONS. none of this was stated any where on the purchase page when i bought TANE after buying 2009 2010 and 2012.
      i was planning on buying a RadeonVll with the 24?32? GB video ram, but now that i see this post, i know it's worthless to buy amd and mac. (i don't like wormy apples anyways).

      I thought I had answered the post pretty well, but it appears I missed the statement that we are not yet supporting Metal (although the omission was pretty much evident that we have not yet implmented this, otherwise my post, if it was simply to "mask truths" would have mentioned it).

      McGuirel, we will do the best with our limited resources for the majority of our users. With 80% of users being Nvidia PC users, that is our focus. If you prefer that we focus on the 10% AMD PC and 10% Mac users (https://wccftech.com/nvidia-amd-inte...share-q3-2017/), then please provide us with the additional funding that is not going to come from product sales from these minoroty groups.

      We know that we're not going to convert all the Trainz naysayers, but from the feedback we're getting so far i our closed beta testing is that those predicting our downfall (yet again) may be disappointed.

      At some point we have a right to stick up for our company values and dismiss these offhand comments that attempt to do nothing but try to perpetuate the downfall of the company and product that so many other people want to thrive and survive.

      We do as good as we can with our limited resources. We have many competing priorities. If we produces the prefect Tree Simulator, then McGuirel would be our first, but perhaps only customer. Instead, we have chosen to focus resources on things like Driver UI, stability, performance, and many other things.

      So to summarize, I myself am NOT IMRESSED AT ALL about the attempt to turn TRS2109 into a Tree Simulator exercise.

      I am very sorry if I have offended you, but if you're prepared to claim that I am hiding anything, you need to be prerared for my response, and my only option is to not hide anything and say it as it actually is!

      And as for the "only one feature" comment, I assume you mean the "one" feature that improves "the lighting, materials, shaders, colouring, shading and texturing", and you've chosen to ignore the UI, AI, Command systems, and other changes completely.

      McGuirel, as far as I know, you haven't actually seen the beta, so I would suggest that we try to calm things down now that we've both said our piece, an wait for (i) The Early Access version to be released and (ii) the final version to be released, before we go claiming that everything is a complete mess.

      Trainz performance varies according to the content selected which means it is very difficult to benchmark.

      It will run on AMD GPUs.

      Middleton for laptops was specially created to run on Intel series 4000 integrated graphics at 20+ frames per second on a 1600 by 900 screen. This is way below the minimum recommended hardware. I suspect it will give you 30 FPS running one of the sessions even on your AMD GPU.

      I agree the code is optimised for nVidia cards but that does not mean it will not run on other GPUs.

      It does take advantage of some features of the nVidia card but to my mind they aren't critical for the SIM to run.

      i downloaded trainz2019, opened the zip files, installed the game, message says i need to go to support, i paid for a game that does not run
