    Will there be an update to the game today in readiness for the TGV DLC on Thursday? Will the update include the fixes on the roadmap?

    What makes you think that there will be an update today? I haven't heard anything.

    There will be an update at some point for the new DLC coming and it will contain fixes. That’s how it always works. It might be today.

    Yes we knew that there is supposed to be another update before the dlc drops, but I wonder what the point is about asking if the only ones who know about updates and timings are DTG themselves - and they post patch notes in the announcement section when it does drop...

    Sometimes asking the question will get an answer from a passing CM.
    It is, but there is always an update in the days preceding the DLC release to prepare the game to accept it, which also includes fixes for other things. That update has to come before the DLC is released.

    Loads of IOW fixes but not the ones that we are really bothered about (see elsewhere in the PS4 section). As long as PC guys get their motion blur sorted everyone’s happy right?

    Motion Blur Toggle, now that is something i was waiting since the release of the OG TSW on consoles. Now the already stunning locos will look even better. Me likes them spinning wheels, especially the ones with central rods ;). Thank you so much for this find. Cheers

    No livery designer upgrade for the 377?! Very disappointing especially when last week Sam said it was 'happening'.

    Dunno what they've done to the IOW route, but their now appears to be a scary wailing sound coming from Ryde Pier Head and Ryde Esplanade! Sounds like a lighthouse foghorn!

    updates are always on the Tuesday.
    DLC historically on a Thursday :cool:

    LGV trophies all present and accounted for
    Wish I could say the same for the IOW (thumbs down)

    Look at your train wheels at high enough speeds and notice the unnatural looking blur effect. When you toggle it off, this effect is not enabled.

    Also look at the tracks at high speeds and notice how it looks faster with motion blur on. You can see the sleepers clearer with it turned off (and scenery).

    I keep it on because the sense of speed is better but some just don't like the effect.

    I tried it on and off last night and I thought the wheels looked better with it off. Must admit I only thought of comparing the wheels so will test it again later.

    Yeah I have just been playing around with it, and the big difference is the wheels, thats where I noticed the difference, the wheels certainly looks much better with it "off", they look much sharper and clearer and you can see the detail way better on the wheels.

    I think some of the trees look a little sharper with it turned "off" too, but that might just be my imagination, I thought I noticed a very slight clearer row of trees. But the wheels is where you really notice it for sure. I think I will keep it off

    What a joke... Saloon lights (and headlights) still affect framerate in IoW. Well done.

    To be honest, saloon lights seem ok with cloudy skies, but they still affect framerate in sunny days. Problems with shadows?

    What exactly is happening with the headlights and saloon lights? I use both on every trip and have seen no bad performance. I see the smoothest running route in TSW2.

    Call me crazy, but disabling the motion blur definitely seems to have a noticeable effect on performance. I don't actually have a FPS counter to check what the numbers really are, but it feels like ~5 or 10 FPS maybe?

    I find it to have a significant effect actually. All those blur artifacts are gone, and the picture is SOOOOO much clearer now! I'm really liking this change :D

    Its probably worth noting that I'm seeing these performance changes on a PS4 Slim, so your mileage might vary? I'm not sure how big of an impact it is, I just know that there's definitely an improvement

    Just read on Twitter that the update deletes your IOW class 483 liveries. Can anyone on PS4 confirm this?
