In a BVE Route , how do I change the config to make trains stop at the "8" mark instead of "10" ?

1. open the route file
2. find the freeobj number in the object list for the 8 marker
3. find the stop command at each station,
4. erase that stop command
5. look back 16 meters for irt routes or 19 meters for ind or bmt routes where you should find the freeobj command for the 8 car marker object.
6, add a new stop command at that spot.
7. when done click the x and save changes

Route viewer can help so you have a near exact location for the distance(meters) in the route for that location while having notepad open.

'

if that was tricky, since that type of change is a simple one, then you will have a lot of trouble building routes. the secret is patience, tial and error, and more patience. take small steps and youll get there

So for example , where it says "@stop (0)" is the stop command?

Remember to put the @freeobj() command along with the @stop(0) to make sure the stop maker shows up at the stop point.
