Hi, I am Douglas, I am into MSTS/Open rails Melbourne content, I recently got the Epping route working on open rails, but I am having issues with it, (I am using this with the city loop patch) The Epping platforms are invisible, as well as some flinders street platforms, so if somebody could help I would really appreciate it, thanks to all suggestions and people who attempt to help.
Edit: I have realised that every. single. dang. platform is invisible.

Reinstall the route and make sure the batch file runs to completion. You may need to run the installer as an admin.

Have you got the platform kit (as well as the other required files)?

I do not have the platform kit, as stated in the about of this post, I stated "I cannot get the platform kit because the website needs an account to download and I can't get an account setup because they do not send the confirmation email, are there any other websites which have it? if so please give me a link. EDIT: I realised that I did not state that, but it is true about uktrainsim

I don't know which file it is, hopefully someone else knows and contacts you about it. In the mean time I would suggest you  send an email to the UKTrainSim contact address info@atomic-systems.com advising that you cant setup an account and wait for a response.




I recall reading on the trainsim.com forum of another person that had not heard back after a couple of days when they couldn't create an account. You may have to wait till whoever's in charge gets back to you.

Hi boomgates. The Epping platform problem was mentioned by a very frustrated poster (silvertrain80) in the thread "How to get MSTS Melbourne trains" where the poster was not able to get the route up and running.

This link should take you to page 6
https://www.railpage.com.au/f-p2018653.htm

It starts with "I had forgotten about "Graham Pitt's platform kits" you can download these kits from UK Trainsim http://www.uktrainsim.com/ Note that this was posted in 2016.

Use this as a starting point. You may need to read through several pages to get it sorted, possibly even backtrack a page to get context.

cityrail-rulez may still be able to help with the necessary file(s), but will require a PM to him. Make sure you read the pages thoroughly first.

Best wishes

Well, I installed Tramtracks and now open rails doesn't respond I try to close it, and it kinda breaks down, no matter what route I use and I have to shutdown/restart my PC If I want to use it again. EDIT: When I say "If I want to use it again" I mean my PC.

It's so nice to be not forgotten about, thanks mate Smile

As much as I would have enjoyed to help someone with the required files, but unfortunately I lost my back up hard drive a month ago and I haven't bothered re-downloading anything except for some routes so far

Alright, thanks for getting back to me, I am unsure what to do from now on, with OR just crashing, I am just stuck here, I have even started a forum post about OR Crashing on trainsim.com.

When 'modding' a program you need to keep a note of what changes you are making and keep backups so that you can restore back to last known point that everything worked. Ideally make one change at a time and test. That way when something starts crashing you restore back to the point that it last worked and you're up and running again.
