Sorry to say but the roll signs don't work on mac. The plugin that makes them work is windows only.

I was about to buy a keyboard with a number pad. I just hate my r46 stuck on the airplane sign when I'm on the F line. Ill get a windows computer sooner or later, but thanks!

No problem. You could always just get a windows partition set up on your mac using bootcamp. It works pretty well.

Eventually we will get animated rollsigns working on mac, we just need a developer with the knowledge to step up and code a .NET plugin that is suitable.

Sounds great! Hopefully when this happens OpenBVE will have more mac users

I'm one of those mac users actually. Unfortunately I just don't know how to do the work required to get them working.
