OpenBVE glitches occasionally at times. If the train does not take power, then reset to emergency, move the power handle to neutral, then release brakes and try applying power again.

I installed the ALP-46 Package in the ...\legacycontent\train folder and the MAV-120a in ...\legacycontent\railway\object folder. WhenI start up OpenBVE and select each of the items (train and route) the start button is not enabled. I'd like to be able to run the ALP-46 as it looks great. What am I doing wrong?

Help appreciated. Thanks.

I tried but the upload folder is full. The only thing to take a snapshot of is the main menu of both items selected and the start button disabled.

Mr. Mike,
Possible problem source: in the openBVE menu,
select one \train\ALP-46\subdirectory\ which holds file Train.dat
before program may enable start button.

The subdirectory is empty. I went down to the subdirectory for the MAV-120a and tried each of the selections but no start button. Should the ALP-64 subdirectory be empty?

Each train must have it's own subdirectory under \Train\
Each of the train subdirectories must have these: Train.dat, Sound.cfg, Panel.cfg or Panel2.cfg or Panel.Animated, Extensions.cfg, WAV and PNG and BMP files, etc.
In the program  menu, when you choose a train subdirectory, it must have above files, or the start button will not be enabled.
If these files are missing, you have not properly installed the train.

Yea, the way I partitioned the ALP packs was "train/ALP-46/NJT (or Amtrak) ALP-46/ .dat files". If you just follow the readme instructions and drag the folder into your train folder, you should be able to load them into openbve with no problem. All the files are there already.

Well, getting closer. I tried loading up the ALP-46 with a route and I only get a large white box just left of center instead of the cab. I've tried all of the keys but nothing brings me the cab.  The loco starts, stops, and does everything else properly.

Any ideas???

Again, as always, help appreciated.

Mike
