    Is this related to your thread about moving your install to a new computer?

    If he moved the whole install from another PC it might be an ownership or permissions issue. I had that moving a drive to a different PC, had to take ownership of the drive.

    Whatever the problem is it's probably solvable.

    I bought the Trainz games to have fun in my free time , but all i received:

    - a resource hungry content manager
    - tons of older faulty assets
    - a KUID hunting game
    - payware assets in freeware routes
    - missing content in routes that were downloaded from the DLS
    - faulty assets in content that was downloaded from the DLS
    - unfulfilled promises " we will make available all built in content from the previous Trainz versions "

    So this game series is a mess since years .

    All reasons you give are actually valid lackoo
    this does not mean you cannot have fun with trainz


    Playing trainz, never forces you to only have the latest version
    Fi I have a full working TRS2004SP2 on my PC here
    for TRS19 I use build 100240 (before any service packs)
    very happy with that version and it does what i want and is stable


    Kuid hunting, I hardly ever do and actually use more that is not on the DLS than on it
    There is a forum part where people can help you "hunt" kuids, here


    Payware items in freeware routes is a BAD thing
    SP4 makes that even worse, but N3v knows and will correct that
    What i do here, i live with the knowledge i cannot get them and replace them on the Route
    Why on earth would I want buy some rusty PBR shed, while there are 100's better replacements


    Faulty assets, yes happens a lot, realize some assets were made over 10 year ago
    and the original creator has long left the scene, has no motivation to come back and repair
    Assets should not get faulty to begin with, it's called backwards compatible.


    Anyway, find a version you feel comfy with, and have fun
    If you need help or kuids, just ask, many here that can help
    greetings GM

    The freeware included in payware has been an ongoing issue since TANE. This is due to some mislabeling, or mistagging the assets. If you have a list of mislabeled assets, let the Helpdesk know and they'll put those on the list. Zec has been awesome at handling this issue.

    I don't have any faulty assets. I did initially, but I either fixed them, which was easy because they were pretty old and needed stupid things like spelling fixes in the config.txt files. There were plenty of misplaced quotes, broken lines, faulty tags, and missing images. For those I couldn't repair, I downloaded again and somehow they fixed themselves, or I outright deleted them. Lately, just deleting them has been my MO because I'm getting old and my patience is getting thinner.

    One of the biggest problems I find with content management is we can't sort easily on dependent assets. There should be another column for Dependency of, and liar the route or asset it belongs to. Simple. With that extra column, we can then go back and weed out old stuff that's been rotting on the hard drives for ages and taking up space and remove the unused assets. The problem now is sorting through the mess and then end up deleting something that has to be downloaded again. Sometimes, however, I find going back through memory lane helps me find some really good stuff I downloaded before and forgot about and then I end up using it on one of my routes!

    Hard to deny these points. Some people can live with the level of annoyance, others cannot.
