Speaking of generations, I tried a new train on the F to Jamaica route. It was the R160. WOW is that different. I have been mostly using the R1. The R1 goes to P3 and B3. The R160 goes to P3 and B6! And the P and B symbol is in the same place, unlike the R1 which has a place for each. Increasing the brake reduces the power and increasing the power reduces the brake. It just takes some getting used to. I'm going to try more trains to see what they are like.

BTW, no matter what side the station is on the right doors open on that route. Must be a bug somewhere.

I have to say I am thoroughly enjoying OpenBVE. I grew up in NYC and rode the subways a lot. I remember the BMT cars had 3 folding doors where the subways have 2 sliding doors now. I am probably dating myself!!  LOL  They were kind of like a trolley car. Man, that is ages ago!

I hope there is more work being done on OpenBVE. I wish I could program so I could help. I believe I saw somewhere it is done in C#. Never used that language. I am very interested in the multiplayer and training classes. On the routes I see various signs that I have no idea what they mean. This is a very interesting and educational simulator plus a lot of fun. I'm going to try the arcade driving mode to see what that is about.

In any case I am happy it is working. Thanks for your assistance.

It was the A-Lefferts Shuttle. I say was because I just tried it to be sure I had the right name and now it works great. I did notice that ATS was off so I do not know if that was a cause of the problem.

I figured out the braking problem. It was a key naming problem. Everything works great now.

So I guess it is good to have ATS on.

Thanks for the info.

I have changed my controls to be like MSTS and I cannot get the brakes to work. I am set it to back-apostrophe (') but it does not work.

I have finally figured out most of the symbols on the lower part of the display but I do not know what ATS and ATS Run are. Is there something that toggles them? What are they?

Thanks for the help. I really do enjoy the graphics and all of OpenBVE very much. A BIG change when coming from MSTS.

Unfortunately it didn't improve my fps at all :)
That cfg file is located the UserData folder. Hope this helps.

I do not have any files (just folders) in my userdata folder. Could that be part of my problem?

To load objects in advance can smooth FPS.
Go to openBVE program folder, edit file options.cfg with this
LoadInAdvance = true

I hope this may help you.

Is that the exact file name? I cannot find it in the folder. I am having the same problem and hope this will help.  Thanks.
