An interesting one. Attached is a zip file with one Trainset, two Consists and the ActMan report.
You will see that there are two sets of Eng files, one with and one without LT at the start. This seems to have thrown ActMan as it is asking for one to be changed to the other.
Or am I getting in a twist?
I decided to start a new thread as the one we have been using is actually nominally about something completely different.

Hi Jonathan,
Thanks for your report, but it looks like an error on the part of whoever created the LT1959stockEast.eng and LT1959stockWest.eng files!!

The 'Engine (' and second 'Wagon (' entries have not been changed to match the first 'Wagon (' entry.

Cheers,
Ged

Doh! Thanks. I looked at all sorts of things but not that. It is a bit odd anyway having two sets of eng files with no obvious difference between them.
Yes, no problems now I have corrected the Eng files. I actually now have no errors other than the over-30-charter issues which do not matter in any of my British routes. Now to start checking the sms files. I bet that will be fun.

Hi Jonathan,
The important entry in the .eng file is 'Engine (' as that is used by MSTS and, I believe, ConBuilder..  It is the one that MSTS_ActMan checks the Consist entry against.

I'm not sure which sms_Checker you will be using, but v2.0 is getting near to release.  It seems to be working correctly and gives the option to automatically correct SOME of the errors reported.  You are welcome to try a copy, but I have to remind you that, essentially, it's still a WIP, so I recommend you have a full backup before using the update ('Overwrite') option!

The over 30 character names DO MATTER, especially if you're using ConBuilder. I think MSTS just truncates the name, which can be 'dangerous'!!

Cheers,
Ged

Thanks. I did consider offering to test v2.0 when you announced it but I have quite a bit to do for the HMRS at the moment - a new book being produced on LB&SCR carriages and some drawings to clean up - so I decided against. It will probably therefore take some time to go through the list of errors - like to the end of January at my usual rate. I hope I don't upset anyone by saying that in any case I often run Open Rails with the sound off, especially for diesel locomotives.
I haven't used Conbuilder, normally finding the Consist building function in Route Riter good enough, but I have noted your comment. I have noticed though that there is an increasing tendency to very long folder and file names, especially for American stock.
If I find anything else with Activity Manager I will report it but it has behaved perfectly up to now.

Hi Jonathan,
That's OK, mate Smile
I should point out that, by default, v2.0 operates just the same as v1.0/1.1, but with an additional check that the number of Trigger lines is equal to the number entered in Triggers.
'Overwrite' has to be specifically selected by the user and then only operates for one press of the START button.

v2.0 will probably be available from the library by the time you get back to checking the files. Depending on what sort of errors are reported, using 'Overwrite' mode could reduce the number somewhat!

Thank you for the note about MSTS_ActMan.

Cheers,
Ged
