BVE/OpenBVE Support / Rollsign Issues
« on: December 29, 2015, 08:19:23 pm »
Hello everybody,

I have an issue with OpenBVE that is apparently pretty common. The animated rollsigns on the cars up for download here (specifically the R32, R38, R40, R40M, R42, R46, and R68) will, after a day or so, stop working. Mashing the assigned keys does nothing. So, I have spent quite a bit of time researching this problem. Apparently, it is caused by the file 'OS_Ats1.dll', which, as far as I know, controls the built-in ATS function --- although I'm not sure what this has to do with the plugin for animating the rollsigns.

I have read a couple suggested fixes, both of which have worked temporarily for me, but the bug will always come back after a while. One fix was to re-download the train with the issue, although as soon as one train would go, the rest of the fleet's signs would stop working. This worked twice, both times I replaced the R42. However, on the third try, this stopped working. I tried replacing the rest of the rolling stock with animated rollsigns, and still no fix. More Googling turned up another potential solution: add the OpenBVE folder to your antivirus software's exclusions. I did this (I have the free version of Avast) and my signs were once again functional --- for a few days. They have stopped working again. Now, none of those fixes will work.

This problem has me a little stumped. I have read that the plugin that controls these signs does not work on Mac OS X, but I'm running Windows 10, so it should be perfectly compatible. Also, recently a weird new part of this problem has emerged. On the R38 only, applying the brakes will trigger the route sign (bottom one) to start scrolling --- and releasing the brakes will stop the sign from scrolling! I have absolutely no idea how this is happening, and it has only happened in the latest recurrence of the bug.

If anyone could help, I would appreciate it.

BVE/OpenBVE Support / OpenBVE v1.4.3 Will Not Work
« on: December 23, 2015, 06:05:21 pm »
Hello everybody,

I just joined here, as I am getting back into OpenBVE for the first time in a few years. I have v1.4.1.2a from a few years ago installed on my computer already, and it works just fine. I have tried to download the latest version (v1.4.3) from here, and everything works as it's supposed to until I try to load a route/train. When I do, I get this error message:

This happens with every single route/train combination.

I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to 10, and my old version of OpenBVE seems to work fine with Windows 10. I have the latest version of OpenAL, and .NET framework was installed in Windows 7 and comes default in Windows 10. Any ideas as to what my issue is here?
