Hi folks,

After a long break, I'm trying to resume my attempts at modelling for MSTS/OR. Amongst a few almost finished efforts is a now rather elderly SMR diesel 'Ninian'. So I've been putting the Snowdon Mountain railway route ( and patch) together to help finish it off if I can.

The SMR download readme says I need 'ztracks', which I have downloaded and put into the Route folder. OR sees the route OK, but won't load as it says I probably don't have xtracks or ytracks. Do I need to arrange the contents of the ztracks folder in any particular way? I don't think I'd previously needed the different track shapes so I'm at the bottom of the learning curve for this!


Thanks in anticipation...

John

John, the ztracks files should be extracted to the GLOBAL/SHAPES folder of your installation.

Hi David,

Thanks for the prompt response. That takes me half a step forward in that the error message has now changed.
OR now says it has found a track shape not in the 'tsection' file and again asserts it may be that Xtracks or Ytracks might be missing.

The MSTS install appears to work OK - with the basic original routes. I haven't tried the SMR route on MSTS yet, but will do to see if that shows any differences. I suppose there'd be no harm in installing X+Ytracks

The OR log file shows that it replaced track section 360, but;

The tsection.dat ( as installed by SMR as far as I see) is dated 8 May 2001 though there are two others in the OR directory.

Hi John.

You need to install a later tsection.dat file. (build 42uk and up)

Hi Mark,

Thanks - that fixed it. I recall from years ago that people had issues with tsection versions, but it never affected me with the few extra routes I picked up.
So, onwards and hopefully upwards!

Cheers

John
