What a very strange post mate??? I am all confused and I would assume Yuri would be too

I don't mean to offend you or anything but I'm not quite understanding your post, if you are showing a reskin or a new model???

The screen it takes you to is for the D50, the previous steam model. Even if you hover the mouse over the "read more" text it points to "nsw_d50.html", but if you click on the thumbnail it takes you to the correct "nsw_d57.html" screen. I didn't know that it is a new, yet to be released model!

It's not - the models were released a few years ago (Aug 2009 to be exact) on the former AMW website, but when that site disappeared, so did the 57's/58's - Yuri is in the process of resurrecting them again.

They are good models actually particular the 57 with the conjucated valve gear animated. Well worth getting when the become availible again.

If I can get any idea of what the cab was like I will do a hi-resolution cab view for it. The only D57 thats inexistance is as far as I know is in pieces at Valley heights. Anyone know more about it. In the not to distant future I am going for a tour around the NSW rail musemums to get a few cab view photos.

Note the readme with the pack I have says,

"Freeware, trade, copy and reskin at your leisure.

The only conditions I place are DON'T SELL THESE MODELS via any medium and they are NOT to be hosted on any website without my permission!"

Two books keep coming to mind. I have seen both in train book shops over the years as well as glowing references to them on various forums. Maybe someone with these may be able to help.  57 & 58 book by Craig Mackey. The big engines of the N.S.W.G.R. / K.T. Groves

Get your hands on what ? - the MSTS models or the books

The MSTS models are available on the Coals to Newcastle website.

The books have been out of print for many years - second-hand copies are VERY rare and normally sell for $200+ when you do find a copy.

I haven't used MSTS for just under 6 months due to compatibility issues with Windows 7. There's a chance I may not have installed it properly, but I have followed the guide to installing MSTS on a Win7 pc and it hasn't enabled me to launch the game successfully.

These engines would be nice to drive, and it would be nice to be able to do an activity on the CTN route again.

What's the problem you are having? I've been able to launch the game successfully on Windows 7.

When I click on either the MSTS icon or tools one to run either, it just hangs infinitely until the process gets ended automatically for being unresponsive. Just a black window, not like when you see the alert message saying it can't run with the current display settings etc in which you subsequently see the screen adapt to it.

I've tried several installation methods, and it refuses to get to the loading screen. Even the guide on Steam4me regarding Win 7 and MSTS doesn't resolve the problem.

I'm using Win7 home premium 64 bit with auto updates enabled btw.

Are you getting any error messages from Windows at all? When it says the program has stopped responding is there an option to read more details? If so what are those details. Is anything generated in the Windows event log? You can get into the Event Viewer by going to Start, right click Computer and select Manage. Expand the Event Viewer and check all the logs. Note anything that's logged during the time that you tried to open MSTS.

If you do have any error messages / logs report your findings here.

Failing that, below is a list of progressive steps I would take in order to resolve. Note that this assumes a desktop computer. Laptops can add a layer of complexity when it comes to reinstalling the operating system.

As the loading screen will not even load this could indicate a graphic driver issue. Have you run 'mprofile' in your MSTS install folder?

Try browsing to where you have MSTS installed, right click on train.exe and select the option to run as administrator.

Right click on train.exe and go to the properties menu. On the compatibility tab change the Compatibility mode to run as (Windows XP Service Pack 3).

Disable User Access Control (UAC) and reboot computer. Google how to do this.

What sort of video card do you have? If you have a NVIDIA card go to the NVIDIA Control Panel. In the manage 3D settings you should see train.exe in the Program Settings list. If not add it and keep the settings as simple as possible. Most of mine are set to Use Global Settings and most of my Global Settings are set to Applicaiton-Controlled. Keep track of any changes you make in case it affects other applications. ATI cards will have their own control panel software (Catalyst?).

Try running MSTS with your Anti-Virus and Firewall disabled whild dissconnected from Internet.

Running a program like 'Process Monitor' (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb896645.aspx) may possibly reveil the cause. Reading through the log file can be daunting but highly informative on what your computer is doing. Filters are your friend.

Failing all of the above next steps would be to uninstall MSTS, use a uninstaller program like 'revo uninstaller' to remove all references to MSTS from the registry. Ensure the MSTS folder is deleted/renamed and re-install as per the instructions on steam4me.

Worst case scenario is you may have to wipe your drive and reinstall Windows. A better option would be to swap out the drive in your pc with a spare one if you have one. Wipe it, install Windows and then MSTS and test. That will show if it's a hardware (unlikely) or operating system / 3rd party app that is the cause.

I once purchased a racing car game that did the same thing. Just a black screen and nothing. I did all of the above (except for the last paragraph) and nothing. Some time later my operating system got corrupted so I reformatted the drive, reinstalled Windows and all my other 'must have' applications. As a test I installed the racing car game ant it worked. Same hardware, same operating system but it just would not load. Go figure.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Marek.

@ARG706 Have you tried re-installing? It sounds like there could be a required file missing.

G'day Michael,

I would do what Marek has suggested to get MSTS working on Windows 7, I always keep my User Account Control (UAC) turned off because some programs I have will never run correctly or simply don't work at all when it's turned on

What I use to protect my computer is the Microsoft security essentials, download the internet explorer tracking protection list (all that you see on the page) and set the pop up settings to High and only allow sites that you trust to pop up in a new window or on a separate tab... If you have Norton get rid of it

I really hope that you can get MSTS working on Windows 7 mate

Howdy Phil. I have Avast installed. I uninstalled AVG ages ago, and didn't really like Norton when I tried it. As RailBlogger said, there could still possibly be a fault with the installation.

There may be one last hope to get it working after all. That would be so good.

G'day Michael,

There could be one other reason mate, it maybe your MSTS CD rom? I am not 100% sure
but if there's a fault with the installer file then replacing the CD rom maybe helpful

And hopefully you can get back into MSTS Smile
