    After the delay and price increase to the rush hour season ticket (which I understand and find reasonable) one would assume that it would be a mostly smooth affair however it seems not.

    On the Xbox 1 (I can’t speak for next gen) Risa-Dresden has crashed many times, once when loading a tutorial, once when in service and finally once half way through the 767 Cab Car tutorial to name but three. As of now Boston and Dresden have extremely low FPS, usually around 15. One would’ve hoped that the release delay and removal of branch lines would’ve been to mitigate these issues but I can only foresee that the solution to fix this will be to remove all of the layers (and likely some locos) as happened with Haupstreke Munchen-Augsburg, leaving us with a very empty and bland route.

    I wouldn’t mind the delay (and another if need be) had the proper testing occurred and pointed out these issues. I can wholeheartedly say that I have lost my faith in dovetail and am now relying on rivet games’ WCL to try and restore my faith in the game. This isn’t the first time that an incomplete product has been released by DTG and I can tell you for free, that this won’t be the last. I am tired of being an unpaid involuntary beta tester for dovetail and they really need to sort themselves out. If this wasn’t enough I have now found an issue that when you load up a timetable you can randomly spawn in the middle of nowhere this happens on the majority of routes, ECW, NRD and RT to name but three

    One final note, in TSW 2020 the Miles Platting crash on NTP wasn’t resolved for at least two months so it’s gonna be a long wait before we see any resolution to these issues.

    The same thing happened to me on my Original Xbox One twice, first it happened when I clicked on main menu after completing the Route introduction and the second time when I was leaving Dresden going past a stopped Freight Train, I should mention the frame rate was at around 15 FPS

    I was doing a RE50 service from Riesa to Dresden and as soon as I got to Dresden Mitte, out of memory error message appears. This was on Journey mode at first chapter and I’m on Original Xbox One.

    Edit: Just did a few scenarios on Dresden and I was about to load in the next scenario and was hot with another Out Of Memory Error message. Gives me some concern about Brighton Mainline though, since that route is one of the busiest mainlines in the U.K.

    Thanks for reporting this, I’m on Xbox One and can’t find many people talking about the frame rate on old gen. I think I’m going to have to upgrade to an Xbox Series X by the end of this year otherwise I can’t play Rush Hour routes. I haven’t bought the season ticket yet and this has just saved my money.

    Had these issues as well, since the rush hour update I think I've spent more time looking at loading screens that driving services. Everything has become slower, the new intro doesn't load properly so it's a black screen with music playing then the graphics come at the very end. The menu is slow. When selecting a loco in service mode it takes forever to load to see what livery it is in.
    In the store page the prices don't always show and this is slow. I really don't hope that locos, layers or services have to be removed from Dresden and we're given alternative timetables other wise it might as well be SKA or LIRR or the Xbox one version of GWE.

    Same issue here. I'm on Xbox series s. Was on the Dresden line, but I've encountered it on some other routes as well, not just the new ones. Pretty crazy.

    Yep, haven't been able to finish a service yet on Xbox One. Did 3 training runs, but noticed its very glitchy and low frame rate. 3 journeys all crashed fairly early on with the memory error message.

    I’m on Xbox One S and I haven’t had this problem ever since I got the route, but I do hope they fix this for everyone else

    I think the main problem is around the Dresden Mitte/Hbf area. That’s where I keep getting the out of memory messages.

    Been having these issue in many services just after/before dresden neustadt and just after/before dresden hbf. The quality has been very low with these routes so far and I hope they can actually make BML good or it just won’t be worth even buying it. I’m on a Xbox one x and still having these issues for god sake. I feel like I’m wasting my money on DTG.

    I can’t even play an IC, ICE service on Dresden route. Every time I try and load it up, it either dumps me in a random station with the service not even loaded in or crashes. Same applies when I’m trying to do a northbound freight run from Dresden Hbf.

    I've been playing it on my Xbox One and get the same problem. The game will crash as soon as I leave Dresden Hbf, or when I approach Dresden city center (from Riesa). And while playing the DB 101, the locomotive wont even move! The sounds and amperage indicate the engine should be moving, but instead the game crashes!

    I'm just gonna have to wait until I get back home to play it on good ol' PC, since the Xbox version of the route is broken. I sure hope a fix comes quick.

    I hope dtg acknowledged this as they should have as it’s a massive issue. And this and Boston needs to be fixed quickly otherwise these routes will just become so boring and horrible. I can’t even do any services to and form dresden. This route so far has disappointed me. I had high hopes for rush hour but with these 2 releases my hope has become doubt. It’s very bad dtg and we shouldn’t be paying to beta test your unfinished game. Please fix quickly so I can actually play the route ok?

    When it puts you in a random station just go to the menu and reload the service. It fixes it. It’s also the same on some sehs services and on some Hamburg-lubeck as well

    Playing it on the One S, I’ve started about 20 services but have only been able to complete 3 of them because of the crashes around Dresden. Great route, just wish I could play it.

    I've given up. I've started 12 services and only able to complete 2. Extremely poor product.

    5 out of 5 times worked fine for me getting into Dresden. No crashes and steady 59-60fps.

    Xbox series X.

    It’s a shame that DTG have barely acknowledged this issue and have not told us when this issue will be fixed , but they were keeping the community constantly updated and reassured with the PS4 issue with the core update .

    Xbox one X same problems! Out of memory crashes all the time and kicked out of the game. Also framerates low and stutters in game:( Also when selecting a service it puts you at a random station without a train. I thought the textures and sound issues on xbox was bad, but now this is even worse. I cannot even drive a train now.

    Now I’m experiencing this problem too, was just about to finish the “Follow The Leader” scenario, I was arriving at my last stop, and the game crashed, and it brought me to the Home Screen. What’s stupid is that I saved my progress in that scenario, but if I go to press Resume Save Game, it’ll bring me into another scenario and start from where I left off there. This is so stupid.

    I might have found a temporarily solution for the error message about the memory while we wait for DTG resolve this bug.
    For the problem the player has when he arrives to Dresden Mitte, i tried to pause for few seconds and to return to play. I tried this way on a RE50 Leipzig - Dresden: i paused the game before i join to Dresden Neustadt. Then i did it every 400 meters between Dresden Neustadt and Dresden Mitte and finally between this last and Dresden HBF.
    I tested it on my console (Xbox One X) and it would seem to work.
    This is the way i used when there had been that bug for the route Kohl-Aachen where the ICE services locked when they were joining Kohl. Before of that point, i paused the game for some seconds and then i returned to play and the game didn't crash.
    So, try this solution and let me to know how it went

    I know it isn't the best way to play but it could allow you to finish the scenery / service

    Yet loads of replies and posts for the PS4 issue . Is this dtg being biased towards one console ?

    I recommend playing
    Scenario Planner on this route until DTG fixes those bugs. It almost does not crash in the Dresden area when playing Scenario Planner.

    I have played a few timetables going away from Dresden and they appear fine, although noticeably glitchy and dropping frames around Dresden-Mitte. I've driven 2 back to Dresed and both crashed. Nice I can play half a game!

    Just adding my experience - I was crashing probably 80% of time coming into or near Dresden Mitte from the north, playing on my Xbox One. I recently purchased a Series X and have had zero problems since.
