    1.uninstall your game 2. do a database rebuild to removed any left over files from old versions 3.reinstall base game 4. this got at lest 8 of my add-ons working after reinstalling them

    please try this as this is what worked for me

    I'm still missing SEHS and possibly the Baby Bullet - re-installed, but it's giving me the old version warning for them.

    I get the old version warning for all DLC not even just the Preserved Routes.

    Exactly, I don't know which Preserved Content worked and which causes the crash. If you download the TSW2 base game and the Boston Route that will definitely work and you'll have content to play until this whole mess is cleared up.

    Yep, that's what I have just done yet again, deleted the game and all the DLC and just re-downloading the Collectors Edition for the 2nd time, will definitely not be installing ANY DLC until we hear something positive from DTG!

    I just uninstalled the game and reinstalling right now. I will avoid downloading any DLC routes and locos besides the Boston Sprinter via season ticket. I’m only interest in playing that route. As of now, I have an hour left before the game is fully installed.

    Thank you but It didn't work. Both versions of the DLC (PS Store shows "choose a version" when i select the route). I tried downloading both of every route and game keeps the error *You have outstanding updates wich means your installed add-on's version do not match the core game version.* etc.

    So…. Now weve updated the game… and well frankly it broke everything…. Dove tail said it’s Sony not us just wait they need 24 hours… nothing we’ve now updated the update!!! It’s still broken!! I sent a ticket in chap told me and I quote do the update then turn your PS4 off and then on again Grrrr wtf really??? And well guess what???? It didn’t bloody work!!! Now I see in a link from the ever trust worthy dovetail “well if you delete your game and alllll the add ons then reinstall…. It’s worked for some players… I take it your on a wind up?? Because if so it’s working!!! I am not and I repeat not uninstalling anything until I see a confirmed this is a definite fix!! It’s getting close to asking for a kiss time from
    Dove tail… as I normally get one when I’m being screwed!!!! I have paid money for content…. I want access to this content!!! I certainly don’t want a email saying “hey rush hour is here buy this route” but look there it is… in my inbox…. Normally I’d end this with a single word… but as it’s not an adult forum

    Nothing you can do, unfortunately. This is on DTG end.

    Why are any of you doing this? DTG made this debacle of an update, you should all be spending your energy on getting them to sort out their mistake, we did nothing wrong, why are we meant to fix it? DTG made this fiasco, get them to sort it out, the more you do their bidding running around trying to fix it, the more they just, for want of a better phrase "take the piss". Make DTG sort it out it's their problem they caused it, they've had our money, make them sort out their problems, it's not our issue to fix.

    What makes me laugh is DTG advising you reinstall base game etc. That ain't gonna work, and they damn well know it! Cut the bs and be honest. Even better, test before release!

    there advising you delete/re-install becasuse it'll take about 2hrs, they know dam well it wont work, it's makes no sense keep deleting/downloading a broken game, they are clueless and inept and trying to buy time to cover there incompetence, i only rejoined the forum to see why i could'nt play tws2 and have realized why i didtched tsw years ago, nothing has changed.

    Not yet. We're expecting a further lie at some point over the weekend, then possibly a solution early next week.

    On the plus side my Eastcoast way route now works, nothing else even shows in game such as NTP, SEHS, Clinchfield, TVL & non of my 3 German route DLC's.

    Unfortunately none of this fixes anything. This is something dovetail is going to have to fix.
