      Looking forward to more improvements. Thank you for this. Now my trainz experience is better, pop ups and such are cured!

      Look here if you run into a problem with some assets throwing this error...



      If you have some third party assets (items with headlights) that project a different color of light after editing, you should look at this:


      So far, it has been RRMods products, please read that link if you have the "dying yellow headlight" syndrome.

      Patch downloaded and installed, took 4 minutes to patch and progress bar seems to now be working a lot better.

      Something I have noticed is that the patcher still requires manual selection of the correct folder if it attempts to patch the wrong folder.


      P.S. It may be worth querying the Registry for the correct folder, as TS12 stores it's information there including the build version).

      Terrain rendering appears to have been fixed, SpeedTrees seem ok now in DirectX, no longer vanishing on minimise to desktop and no sign of Tree ENT, CCP preview of mesh working. Menu sound off works, so far so good and heading the right way.

      Indeed. I have found a possible glitch though, and it's relating to TADDaemon running during the start of the patch process and causing File in Use errors if it does not terminate quickly enough.

      Hopefully a fix for the freezing issue when One launches T12 after content is installed, and one let's T12 to automatically committs via launching --- screen remains black, keyboard lights stop working, thus forcing a PC system restart, in the future!

      The patch has been installed successfully. Initially the wrong folder was selected, but when this was amended, the time taken was around 10 minutes.

      Many thanks to N3V,

      Trying to download at the moment but no joy connecting- server down, perhaps? Edit: I was trying for about 20 mins and then it came to life almost immediately after posting this...

      EDIT: Looks like it's come back up.

      Thanks for this patch N3V. Most of my issues have been resolved. The only one that I can identify that is still a problem is the sound in Surveyor. Or should I say lack of sound. It is possible to make it work if I take a shot of the screen using and external grabber like the windows snip tool. Sound suddenly works beautifully.

      the Patch 57898 was installed but after starting the game, only icon of Railyard is shown. What to do to open the routes and saved sessions? Is it possible to return to the previous hotfix(57825)?

      I made defrag and QDR without success, then i restore computer on the erlier checkpoint, it showed 57625, all icons were there, except icon Select Route was missing. So i decided to return to the last checkpoint and now everything work correctly, finaly.
      What a wonderful world we have with TS.

    Great looking trackwork Watsup. Re-doing things again does take a lot of time and effort, but in the long run, it will bring your route closer to perfection.
