So.... Which train will it be used by?
You can use whatever train you like.Wanna kick it back a few years use the 32,40M,42 or 46(Manual announcement version)

The closest thing available is the R-38 and it kicks ass.

Relax I'm sure he's working on the route.

Progress?

I don't think you should ask for progress. From experience, it seems to annoy the developers. When they have it, they'll post it.

Yeah, it hasn't even been two weeks yet. Listen, when the developer updates the topic with images, then there will be an update.

You can use whatever train you want.

I believe it's because of the load time of all the bullets/signs on the R38 that causes your computer to lag.  I know that the R38 takes a slightly littler longer time to load on my rig rather all the others but it doesn't really bother me.

IIRC I believe hammers told me the reason is because of the PNG files that he used

The R179's cab image isn't as FPS heavy. You'll need a better CPU(NOTE: Central Processing Unit).

You'll need a better graphics card and/or more RAM for it not to lag.  CPU has little to do with it.  I run a quad-core and still have slight loading times on the R38.  It's probably because I've taken off one of dual-cards, so I'm basically running only one 9800GTX+.

The R38 lags for some people for a couple of reasons.

1: It's use of PNG files doesn't technically make it lag, it is the Alpha Channels used in said PNG files that offer nice shading affects that make it lag.

2: Nearly every light, button, handle, etc. can be manipulated in some way. There are no static buttons. That means a lot of textures need to be loaded by the CPU and rendered, some on top of each other to provide the desired affect.

3: The R38 uses panel2.cfg instead of panel.cfg coding. This allows for the use of a higher resolution cab texture that provides greater cab detail. The higher resolution textures may slow down graphics cards with a small amount of memory.



BTW the amount of cores your computer has doesn't really matter; OpenBVE doesn't really take advantage of more than one CPU core. Expect the R38 to lag a lot less once OpenBVE gets true multithreading support, as most of the lag in CPU-bound.


Anyway, back on topic.

That's what I meant.
