7zip formats are now online! + Southbound G Update
« on: January 23, 2011, 09:38:53 pm »
Hey everyone, 7zip formats are finally online for our cross-platform users.  You can now download and extract the files instead of needing a Windows based PC to extract the files.  The 7zip formats are also smaller in size due to 7zip's high compression, so if your internet is slow today, you can use the 7zip format.

The Southbound G route has also been updated.  The installer has been replaced with the new nullsoft installer.  The Southbound G also gets a 7zip format for cross platform users.  There are a number of fixes and addition to this update.  Updates include new CSV route files with signals, route file error fixes, transparency issue fixes, the error at Metropolitan Avenue with the platform on the wrong side.  There is a route for all BVE 2/4/Open users.  BVE 2 users get the signal fix with CSV.  BVE 4/OpenBVE in addition to the signal fix get brightness commands.  OpenBVE gets a weather update.  Unlike our other updates, this is probably an update that you want to get even if your files are working.

Enjoy the updates!

Gotcha... The rain is not as bad at the bottom though... If it was, I'm sure we wouldn't be able to see the stations lol

The rain looks great! Is there a way to make the animation refresh faster?

By the way, Kevin, could you release an R160 version for the (G)? You could use SIR's sounds (with permissions of course), change the station dwell time by shaving off a 2-3 seconds, and adding the announcements when the train is coming into the station.

You can change the rain refresh rate by modifying the rain.animated file.

Railway\Object\Crosstown\rainobj\rain.animated is the location.  Where it says RefreshRate =
Code: [Select]
[Object]
States = rain3.b3d, rain2.b3d, rain3.b3d
StateFunction = mod[value + 1, 3]
RefreshRate = 0.1

Make that number smaller.  Do use it with caution though, as my computer crashed when I set it too quickly, or its just my laptop (most likely my laptop).

If SIR grants me permission then I will work on a R160 version.  I have heard his announcements however, and there were some issues with it.  I believe that train was terminating at Coney Island and not Smith-9th which would make it less likely for me to use it, unless I made more modifications to it.  The announcements issue will be fixed on the next major update then, which will be who knows when.

If I do get the R160 in, then that will be the 10 car version, since there are no 4 or 5 car sets that have ran on the G.
