How to download OpenBVE (Windows users)

I made a tutorial showcasing how to get the program (for those who don't already). Maybe some of these threads won't need to keep appearing anymore.

Not bad however I think that an actual narration of you instructing people how to do it would be better than random music lol.. Still helpful

Windows 7 does work with 3D games, and the BVE games are not really 3D anyway, so that's not really a valid statement. You can get BVE 2 and 4 to work with Windows Vista and 7, it just takes a bit of messing around with files and the command prompt. And obviously openBVE works with Vista and 7 perfectly. And try not to type with Caps Lock on, since it makes everyone automatically assume you are angry.

Just because it doesn't work for you doesn't mean that the problem is across every Windows 7 system. Windows 7 was released over 3 years ago. If openBVE didn't work with Windows 7, patches would have been made years ago to fix the problem.


Now, if you explain what issue you are getting with Windows 7 then perhaps we would be able to help you.
