BVE 4 for Vista

Recommended Posts

I thought that by making them work it did something to your PC that you could not undo and it was not 100% certian that BVE would even work. Did anyone else hear that?

I did this and it works on my computer. I don't have any problems and I had BVE for 3 weeks now. Maybe it might be other types of computers

Help??B)

 

I had the same problem. Did you install the dll files? Also check to see your graphic card is on your laptop. If you have ATI graphic card you are golden. I dont believe it wont work with anyother card. Good luck.

If you look at the website I gave before you will see 3 files to download. Just in case, here's the website:

Follow the steps and BVE will work. Also, with this BVE will only work if you have an ATI Card. Nothing else will work (at least for now). This works only for BVE 4, not BVE 2 (it will close down).

Make sure User Account Control is on once you have the DLL files installed. Then, BVE2 will run FOR SURE after you restart your computer. At least it did for me.

I thought you had to turn off the UAC.

Argh. I thought this was a bump to say there was a new Vista-compatible version. There are too many reports of issues with running the older ones. ;)

Alright, I took the plunge. However, I need a walkthrough on the controls. So far, I've only gotten a train to crawl backwards, and I'm not sure how I even did that. :(

I did, and following that, the Z key should get me going, but it doesn't. I'm probably missing something, though. I haven't bothered installing BVE due to the reports of incompatibility with Vista, and I get the feeling that OpenBVE is geared for old hacks at BVE.

 

EDIT: No problems now. This is great fun. :(

I have the controls set as:

Power off: A

Power on: Z

Brake off: ,

Brake on: .

Forward: F

Back: V

 

that only applies to trains with two controllers. for trains with one controller it's:

Brake on: Q

Power off/Brake off: A

Power on: Z

 

oh, also, remember, you gotta set up the ATS on by doing ctrl + s

other wise the train will play a long beep if you leave the station without activating it.

Thanks. I missed the ATS when I ran the G, and had to mute the speakers. :rolleyes:

 

I'm using an xbox360 usb controller for some of the keys, but the fact that some cars have one or two controls has been an issue. I have to remap the keys and memorize which is which. I also notice that on some routes it's easier to derail than others. Is that something written in by the devs?

Yeah, when you start it up, go to options, deselect derail, collision and toppling. You will no longer have to worry about taking that 20MPH curve at 70MPH :rolleyes:

I wasn't complaining. I should get the hang enough of it to know by heart when I should slow down. ;)

 

The derailments don't seem too messy, either. That may be the only disappointment so far. Not that I'm looking for blood, gore and rolling heads, but it's a very smooth roll over to one side. Almost like going to sleep. I was expecting some noise at least. :D

The first time it happened, I thought my graphics card got messed up. lol

Yes, but the point of the game is trying not to derail, so I guess the actions you want out of derailment weren't thought of.
