    ...installed all at the same time due to a technical change undertaken by Sony which DTG didn't know about and Sony have no record of on their technical support website

    Is part of the problem that when you download onto a PS5, you get both versions, therefore doubling the download size?

    The software update was in Beta for months, surely someone participates in this as a Dev team at DTG and would have found this. So did they know and it was ignored? You can bet that DTG know in depth what is coming up on the new Windows release!

    Loads of "it depends" on this one. How many people in the dev team are playing on fully loaded PS5 which are up to date etc etc
    And the update on PS5 was mid dev stream I believe so would have to have been a specific config / test bed set up to catch the issue

    But overall this is a SONY issue rather than a DTG one

    Difference is there's a whole library of technical information on what MS are doing with each windows main release. I spent an hour yesterday trying to find notes of the sony caused issue and it's not on their, or anyone else's technical information. Only reference I could find was on a Sony related forum, and that was created by a TSW2 forum member (they directly referenced TSW2 in the responses)

    No, the ps4 version acts as a separate title and is unaffected by the DLC cap. although, you are right both versions of a download usually download together and I have to go delete one each time.

    Probably wishful thinking in hoping it’ll give us all our DLC back.

    New FW Update for PS5 does not solve the problem for me.

    Thanks for the reply, out of interest, is there a way to prevent the PS4 download or will I have to manually delete it afterwards?

    Haven’t found one yet. I tend to delete the PS4 one while it’s queueing. might be because I had the PS4 version installed before.

    So, have just downloaded London Commuter (just to have an explore, I was bored) but had to delete more DLC for it to appear. Bye bye Boston Sprinter and Clinchfield.

    Honestly, if this is the future - then it‘s a ridiculous one. This needs to be resolved asap.

    Matt spoke about a possible solution on the stream last night I think it was - he talked about the game being downloaded completely (ie with all routes and locos) to your PS5 and a token system being used to activate those dlc's you have bought, similar to CoD I believe he said.

    But I imagine such a solution will take quite a while to code, so don't hold your breath...

    It will also take up a huge amount of very limited SSD space on PS5. I don’t think there’ll be a perfect solution unless Sony reverses it’s position, which is nonsensical to me. Why limit content?

    Well I suppose Sony will say that they've made the additional SSD slot available for users now..

    system update 21.02-04.02 dropped today for the ps5.
    I am not yet over the dlc limit, so wanted to ask has this update shifted anything for anyone?

    Sadly not. I’ve had to remove Rapid Transit, Boston Sprinter and Clinchfield for London Commuter to appear.

    Exactly. If I have to have downlaoded all routes and locos at all time, then how long till I won‘t be able to install any number of other games since TSW has gotten too big? This wouldn‘t really solve the problem, but just replace it with a new problem.

    This problem requires more talk between Sony and DTG. Making everything part of the core will work as a short-term solution, but will create an ever bigger problem over the years.

    I am really disappointed, I downloaded BML on PS5 and it did not appear I had to remove Lgv and Boston Sprinter for it to appear.
    I tried to do the tutorial but it's a technical disaster, it runs at 15 fps with texture bugs, very far from the level of quality and polish of Dresden when it was released.
    Even the game is much slower to start it's a shame on PS5

    The PS5 version you are playing is a beta build. The wrong build was delivered to PS5 users. DTG JD said they are working with Sony to get the correct version released, but it seems to be taking Sony forever to release it.

    With Sony it’s very much a possibility that the update won’t drop today.

    Frankly, starting with the next gen update (XBOX S|X and PS5) and now managing 5 versions of the game (XBO, XBSX, PS4, PS5 and PC) DTG bit off more than they could chew.

    It's sad because I like the game since the beginning (I bought every DLC since TSW) and I really appreciate their work, but patience here is slowly coming to an end. I will not buy any other DLC for a while after rush hour "season ticket".

    Thought everyone will get a little bell update rather than trawl or guess etc.

    Currently over halfway getting the 100 miles while sitting trophy :D “I’ve started so I’ll finish” and let it apply after :cool:

    Hey folks - as has been mentioned, you should see an update in your libraries now. This should be the final build, and provide the polish which wasn't there this morning. When we've confirmed all is good, we'll update the announcement threads.

    No „London Commuter“, „Arosalinie“, „Clinchfield“ and „LGV“ for me. :(
    „Cane Creek“ is the only one dlc I did not bought.

    You will have to delete 3 routes that you dont use (you may have gone over your DLC limit for ther game (64gb as imposed by Sony in their last firmware update. DTG are aware and a work round is in planning.

    I feel making the core game contain all dlc maybe the way forward to avoid this cap, elder Scrolls online does it as its dlc is huge! I know it's far from ideal with the base PS5 having around 660GB (even with just tsw 2 taking 100GB of it) free but there are now options for SSD expansions for the PS5 now the expansion slot is active.

    Obviously a pretty far right opinion, but in respect of base game size, is it really fair to expect a 1:1 rail simulator to be small in size? This is hardly lawnmower simulator.

    DTG don’t need to reinvent the wheel here, there’s a reason so many games are large sizes, and frankly I’m not very confident in DTG’s ability to do something out of the ordinary.

    PS builds really could do without more large issues in the future because so far the PS5 build has been a joke since it released, and it only seems to keep on giving.

    I plead with DTG to please please please just keep things simple, you only keep making things worse for the game by trying to run before you can walk.

    If I delete a route and reload it at a later date do I keep my progress? Also I hope the fix doesn't cost me my saves. Too many game hours lost from the ps4 to ps5 switch.

    Was just watching the Friday DTG stream and to be fair Matt and Sam gave the most reassuring update on this issue to date. A couple of fixes are in testing now, lots of the team are working on it and it's absolutely a high priority issue for them was the gist. Number 1 aim is to get everyone back with access to their DLC which is like a sticking plaster then the longer term solution will be worked out. I feel a little better about it after hearing that. Go right to the last couple of mins of the Friday 8th Oct 1938 stock stream and listen for yourself. Hearing it is better than reading it.

    Thanks for that. Just watched the last minutes - it was great to get some Sam straight-forwardness together with Matt‘s inside knowledge on what‘s happening.

    Ah thank you for that. As I was beginning to worry as heard nothing regarding the serious game breaking issues on PS5. But looks like they are aware from what you said, and working on it at least.

    That‘s the exact problem described by JD. Sony introduced a limit of 64GB on DLCs for PS5. While you can install more, some DLCs won‘t show up in-game then. If you‘re experiencing this, the only current fix is to de-install routes you don‘t use so that the file size for your TSW2 DLCs is below 64GB.

    Question is can you get all your routes into the game?
    I’m playing the PS4 version on the PS5. About six of my routes don’t show in the main menu when selecting a route, something to do with the core update not recognising the add-on’s, though they show as installed if I go into the store or check my managed add-on’s. I’ve tried installing from the PS store, TSW store and managed content. Always the same outcome.
    I did make a post on this in the Technical problems in the forums, but no one from the support team replied to me.
    The add-on’s probably work fine on a PS4 or PS4 Pro. Like to get feedback on anyone who does play the PS4.ver on the PS5.
    Really blows not being able to play all my content. :(

    I still use the 4 on the 5 and reinstalled so many times after the core update. What error message to you get out of interest? The original “dlc out of date” one?

    to be honest you might need to just scrub the game (as it likely been fixed since your last reinstall?) and download the main and then all the DLC you own, which sounds like all of it so a nice 90gb or so
