    Hello everyone,,
    I wonder if I can remove the screenshots before start the game. I find this annoying and too long to wait before start the game in TS 2018. I don't know why does DoveTail Games had many screenshots while uploading the simulator which I don't like. Is there that I can remove them in the program of Train Simulator 2018.

    Loading up a scenario takes however long it takes on your system and the ad's and screenshots are there to give you something to look at while that process takes place. I have a new system which typically takes ten to fifteen seconds to get a scenario started and it's already spoiled me- I was showing someone TS on a laptop the other day, one I've used for TS many times, and was grinding my teeth waiting for it to get started.

    They're just commercials before the feature starts -- better than those little rotating pinwheels provided by Netflix, etc.

    Removing them is possible if you know what you're doing.
    But there's no use in doing so.
    Screenshots are only shown while loading a scenario or the editor.
    Once it's loaded the screenshots will disappear and the scenario or editor will start.

    If you're bothered with the loading times you need to buy a faster computer or components.
    Using a SSD disc can improve loading times dramatically.

    SSDs are good but expensive for a decent size as TS2019 is a hefty game with everything installed

    If you look at those screenshots some are of new items released by DTG which you may not have heard about
    Sometime it mentions a Sale which is taking place and there are Pictures taken by the users of this game.
    A Screenshot contest runs on this forum each week - enter the competition and you might see one of Your pictures whilst you wait for the scenario to load.

    Want to avoid screenshots?
    Play offline.

    And just sit there waiting instead... the screenshots take up very little loading or processing time compared with getting all the consists and local map tiles loaded
