    Sooo. Ps update is running and as per, Sony is awkward.

    steam is coming today and I dare say Pc discussion will have some excited people later. I thought I’d make a thread where you can do the following:

    • Share your woes
    • Moan it’s not working
    • Accuse DTG of xxxxx
    • Blame steam
    • Recognise Dtg have just done an update and new route across 7platforms for us ,that’s nearly as many as kings cross :cool:)

    I do hope it’s smooth though and we get some great feedback for DTGs hard work they’ve been doing for months for us though too

    Looking at the technical forum I'm gritting my teeth for DTG... It is important to recognise how significant today's update is and the work that's gone into it! Would be such a shame if it doesn't go smoothly. I'm expecting a few small issues here and there but not in a way of ruining or preventing gameplay.

    Amazes me how people report issues and then add a load of insults about the people that can help them. It wouldn’t encourage me to help!

    Mistakes happen, deployments go wrong. It’s fine to be frustrated and disappointed, it’s not ok to be rude just because you can’t get what you want instantly.

    So I wish DTG good luck getting through the day.

    I can imagine today is going to be a very very full on day for them with a lot of technical reports, angry console owners ( they do seem very passionate ) and a fair mix of pc owners that just say “meh, I’ll have a brew and try it later”.

    Apparently the issue with the PS4 version of the game is that someone from Sony needs to manually turn on the updated version of the DLCs to enable them to update to the game.

    I think there's a high chance things will go wrong. Deploying updates to every piece of content on every supported platform is a huge thing, and the amount of things can go wrong is astronomical. Even one single DLC release is often problematic unfortunately, so I don't know how they will be able to keep track of all the bugs here. Just imagine: a full engine update on all platforms, preserved collection updates for various routes, new console support and graphics, Rush Hour DLC 1 release, season pass release on all platforms (licensing issues). Just collecting the feedback will be an astronomical task, there are so many routes and content and things to go wrong, from graphics to sound to gameplay. We were there several times and now everything is overhauled. I'm not sure if I even dare starting the game for the next week or so.

    Its a first world issue if it goes wrong the world won't end, and in the grander scheme of things its trivial, there are far more important things to worry about, but some will, as is the nature of some who want everything yesterday if not sooner. so peace out.

    I suppose I’m lucky really, I have a laptop and a Desktop. I’ll try the laptop first. If that goes smoothly I can do the desktop. If it all goes horribly wrong there is always the Epic Games version. Or I’ll just go for a long bike ride instead.

    One of the reasons for the issues reported seem to be that people are downloading preserved collection after updating despite DTG explaining these routes would not be updated until later today.

    I’ve only downloaded the core update to my PS5 and it ran really well for the little time I had to try it out. Just waiting to update the PC version on Steam later :)

    I've noticed its popped up on the pc game pass store this morning too. They're definitely pushing it. I keep checking Steam. I figure I may be for some hours as yet.

    Downloading for me on Steam also. This will be a good test of my new internet provider!

    Unfortunately I'm working all day long so I'm going to play this night...

    Can someone tell me if the Steam version of Rush Hour works properly? I mean all the DLC's remains available and everything is just fine?

    All working properly as far as I can tell. I just ran a scenario on East Coastway with Raildriver :) All my DLC seems to be there.

    But now I have to work :-(

    So far I only played East Coastway and GWE. Both were a lot smoother on my laptop than they were before.

    I had an unreal engine crash exiting the game the 2nd time. But in game everything seems pretty nice at the moment.

    I can’t comment on the new route as I’m not buying the season pass yet.

    So far so good.

    The title screen is a weird one though, definitely making the PC spin up.

    FEEDBACK - Images here are a bit low res

    That sounds good, much better than for Playstation users. I'm looking forward to download the new version after I finished my work and give it a try.

    Yep, it is all there and uses less disk space (as DTG enabled package compression when they cooked the UE4.26 build).

    I quickly fired up SEHS and it looks like cycling the '2' external camera no longer switches to the back of the train.

    I have every DLC - total size on disk - 93GB. Total size to download - 89.6GB. Wow! Impressive reduce. Before it was around 260GB.

    So you have in all the routes basically 0/5 finished scenarios and you have to do it once again? It's also applies to services?

    I haven’t lost any of my completed scenarios or services. Doesn’t mean it won’t happen but it’s all fine for me.

    I would be upset if I had to do Sandpatch again, I didn’t enjoy it the first time, but thankfully still marked as done.

    Oh it's you again, you always say "good bye" but come back every now and then to write messages á la "DTG ruined my life." Very constructive.


    Besides that: Thanks DTG for this big update. The 146 still isn't perfect concering sounds. But still way better than before, finally it's driveable again.
    Also nice to add the cab-dispatcher-call function thingy for the 185.2. Very nice feature. The 182.5 still has no LZB, that would be a nice plus in a future update.
    The sound of the 143 is imo very well done. Thanks for that! Maybe in another update, the white EBula display could be adressed.
    HRR won't feature the blue artefacts and the displays of the MRCE 182 are now in the right places and in both cabs functional.

    I'm very pleased with this update!

    146: Sounds are at least better than before.
    MSB: At least in Aschaffenburg, yes. I didn't look for it in Gemünden, yet.

    Yeah, it's a little bit quiet in the cab but I will gladly take that over what we had previously. I can finally use it again for RB/RE services.

    Ok I'll get it off my chest..
    First thing I wanted to try is the BR 146 having LZB so immidietaly tried it..
    After turning on the breaker of LZB the "B" does not appear..
    When switching from PZB to LZB it goes all blank..
    Didn't pay attention to the distance display but that is probably also not showing..

    Oh and after seeing that the Dostos is clipping into Ehrenfeld's roof I left the game, lol
    And after selecting the weather you would press "E" to continue but all it does now is selecting the month..

    Cons:

    1:The new menu is slow an unresponsive in terms of transitions. It also causes stupid high cpu usage at times.
    2: When navigating menus with controller the weather slider section does not highlight the current selected slider.
    3: micro stutters and title loads are still poor not really expecting these to be addressed but worth pointing out.
    4: Passengers, considering this was the much talked about addition in this update id be happy to leave them as they where and have gotten a working weather system or a skybox that is not drop dead ugly but eh i guess janky animations and see of same faces impresses some people *shrugs*

    Pros:

    1: Distance field Shadows - YES YES and YES this has done wonders for immersion imo far more than the passengers have and has also yielded a far more stable image presentation overall this improvement is worth the update alone honestly.
    2: New controller scheme is solid, now can enjoy driving German content with a controller, previously would revert back to keyboard for such content due to not been able to control PZB and AFB correctly.


    Overall not a terrible update but honestly stand out would be shadows for me personally, the good news is the new engine version brings with it some new tricks DTG could possibly tap into in future so it puts the game in a good position for maybe tackling constant issues like lighting, skybox and real time dynamic weather. The real issue here is the new UX, as someone who does do UX as a secondary role at work there is a lot left to be desired in terms of usability but really the overall experience of the new UI is hampered by the frankly craptastic performance off it.

    I have a different kind of question... For example what if I will complete tutorial on NEC BP before all the route achievements goes live?

    I can see all of them but there's no description so they're all basically hidden. When they goes live I will receive all the missing achievements?
