Hey guys. I downloaded openBVE yesterday and I'm ready to use it but I'm still uncertain as to where I can download the routes and cars from. Any ideas? Thanks.

if you already have BVE2 or BVE4 installed, just type in the proper directories into OpenBVE.

 

FOR BVE2 - Routes C:\Program Files\BVE\Railway\Route

Trains C:\Program Files\BVE\Train

 

If you dont have any routes yet, then you can start downloading them. Their all over the internet just google it lol. If you want NYCTA stuff go to http://www.bvestation.com

Uh yeah see I don't have BVE 2/4 and I'm trying to open the routes with open BVE but it won't let me because of my folder arrangement or something. I'm confused....

I really have to say bve has to be the best trainsim out there <4>sho I think everybody should know about it. (K)<R>

 

Use this site to download the latest version of openBVE:

http://openbve.trainsimcentral.co.uk/

NYCT routes are available at http://www.bvestation.com

When you have the simulator downloaded, there are some dependencies that go with it, in the first link there, they're all explained.

You need to install BVE2 or BVE4 for openBVE to work. The reason is because openBVE is structured on the two games.

 

Here's a simple non-detailed procedure:

 

1.) Go to http://mackoy.cool.ne.jp/ and download BVE2 (As the NYCTA BVE routes are centered upon this program)

2.) Go to http://openbve.trainsimcentral.co.uk/ and download the latest version of openBVE

3.) IMPORTANT: READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ON SETTING UP THE GAME. You need to install a few dependencies that require some extra steps to work the game.

4.) Set up shortcuts and that basic stuff.

5.) Download BVE routes and trains on BVEStation.com. Detailed tutorials can be found if you search the entire site.

6.) Navigate to the BVE Folder in openBVE

7.) Select the route

8.) PLAY!!!!

What if you have Vista? BVE 2/4 doesn't work on Vista.

A bump onto the second page of this thread for newbies!

BVE2 and BVE4 work on LIMITED versions of computers. If you have an NVidia card, then the BVE series will not work with your graphics card. Try this and see if it works:

Chances are, if it doesn't work, then IT WILL NOT WORK. openBVE is supported by ALL operating systems, so use that if the BVE2/4 series doesn't work.

BVE will work on nVidia cards, the issue is with BVE and Vista.

Of course it will. But if you have BVE, Vista, and nVidia, then there is a 90% chance that it WILL NOT work. Whereas if you have BVE, Vista, and an ATI Graphics card, there is a much larger chance it might work.

Yeah I was really hoping to get started on driving some trains but the whole procedure had me confused!!! I downloaded the dependencies (I have Windows XP), but I still didn't know what to do...I stopped trying.

OpenBVE has a similar directory structure to the BVE2 and 4.

 

If u download the routes from bvestation in the executable format then at install u can direct it to ur OPENBVE installation where it will be placed to the correct directory.

 

If u download the routes from bvestation in the zipped format then unzip it, use a filemanager to copy the things in the zip to the correct place

 

TRAINS go to OPENBVE\TRAIN

ROUTES go to OPENBVE\RAILWAY\ROUTE

OBJECTS go to OPENBVE\RAILWAY\OBJECT

 

When it comes to openbve i think u should forget bvestation cuz they made the trains for BVE2 and/or BVE4 and not for openbve, although they told me that the openbve versions of the nyc trains are under development.

 

Check:

http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=148293&postcount=11

 

So if u want NYC trains and routes for openbve then i guess u either hafta search through this forum for infos or u hafta google it like i also hafta do :)
