    I believe this to be the case but it would be nice to get confirmation in the Q&A. I’m planning on keeping all TSW2020 DLC in place as well as downloading for TSW2 but I still have some DLC to buy, which I would like in both titles, at least to start with.

    How will PIS on the Bakerloo line work with scenario planner? Will the screens be blank or will they show the services that have been added to the scenario?

    Will the Livery Editor give you the ability to upload image files from your computer to add as layers onto a livery?

    Will TSW2 be coming to Game Pass and what is the situation looking forward with TSW2020 on Game Pass? Will it stay on for the foreseeable or will it be removed once TSW2 launches?

    See what I did there? :D

    All we need now is to wait for confirmation in the Q&A.

    Does the weighted wagon system work on passenger trains too?

    PC and the PS4 are two separate platforms and therefore content can not be transferred from one to the other.

    In passenger mode can you stand up on the bakerloo line

    Is it possible to release the manual for tsw2 before the launch of the game so the community can look through it first

    And related to that:

    1) Will there be manuals supplied for each of the routes? (I don’t think there was one for the Class 20?)
    2) If there are manuals, where will they be located?

    the signaling would be corrected because of tsw the you have a signal at 40 km / h and the speed does not move and it lacks information for the speed

    I know liveries can't officially be shared, but it's been mentioned that TSW2 scenario files can be shared if a PC player were to look for them in the right place, could the same thing be said for liveries created within the livery designer?

    I.e., can we share liveries through unofficial unsupported means

    If it can be saved, it can be shared. It's whether there's a specific file and folder structure requirement that would be the issue

    They have them all listed in this page. I find it easier to find them there instead of going to each Steam page.

    Few questions following on from tonight’s stream:

    1) Are the ICE cab textures final? It looks very clinical with no weathering. The controls almost blend into the desk and with the TSW lighting it appears to emit its own light.
    2) Will there be a performance increase from the dev version to release? There was a lot of lag especially around the two terminals, but also throughout the route (seemed to be consistent lag spikes when passing AI trains and almost like tile stutter from TS classic when it loads distant scenery). I’m just worried if it runs like that on a decent PC, then how is it going to run on consoles (especially the original Xbox One and PS4 (not X/ Pro).

    Have to say, externally the ICE looks really nice. Lighting does seem to have improved slightly and the sky textures look better than in TSW2020.

    Also that interior door that Sam commented on as saying how he’d be mad if that was his 1st class seat, it was actually 2nd class. Just seems like the wrong door model has been put in because it was a second class coach on the outside and the 2+2 seats blocked the passage way through the door.

    Will it be possible to drive S-Bahn services on the corresponding tracks on the Köln-Aachen route from Köln to Horrem and/or Düren?

    The white brightness on the ICE cab desk was awful, hope to god that is not final. When many people asked about it, they never answered, not from what I can remember anyway.

    Are you able to adjust the seat height on at least the ICE 3M? The camera position seemed too high.

    Things don't look final in dev builds. It said reflections and lighting needed to be rebuilt.

    Hello!

    It looked a bit troublesome to see you use the mouse for controls and buttons in the live game demo.. I use an Xbox game control and keyboard on my pc. I hope it stays the same in TSW2? It is very convenient.

    As it says on the Steam store, you get ECW with the Deluxe Edition. Bare in mind that ECW is a Preserved Collection route though.

    I currently play TSW2020 on PS4 however I am transitioning to pc gaming and wonder if the preserved collection will work cross platform or if its got to be on the same platform as the original purchase of dlc?

    This was confirmed in the first stream, all DLC licenses purchased for the preserved collection will give you a license for the TSW1 and TSW2 versions, no matter which one you buy, you'll get both

    That's what I thought too, but Sam said yesterday that you get the TSW2 version if you buy the TSW1 DLC, but not the other way around.

    Here is the link.

    The thing is if you get a preserved DLC from TSW1 you will get both licenses
    What won't happen is if you buy TSW2 DLC you won't get a TSW1 version, so if you get WSR you will have the license for both, but if you buy bakerloo there won't be a TSW1 version to have.
    That was confirmed by MattP a few times over the streams

    Again, this is what Sam posted yesterday:

    I would stay on the safe side and buy the TSW1 version of any preserved collection DLC that I wanted.

    Do what you want. I would read that as any DLC released or updated for TSW2 will only work in TSW2
    It's already been confirmed that there won't be any updates for preserved collection items in TSW1, so don't expect them to be the same. You will still get the licenses for both DLC whichever way round you buy them (according to what MattP, the project manager for TSW, said)

    Indeed, and being me I usually wait until it's all out in the open, the facts are proven and therefore avoid disappointment

    My questions are: Will PZB work in (for example) the BR425 with other German routes if you use the scenarioplanner? And will the PZB work in (for example) the DB BR ICE3M with other German routes?

    ...some good questions in your post- and I’ve got some of the same concerns you do about the performance of TSW 2 on consoles (in my case, on the PS4 non-Pro). I’ve actually been running some frame rate tests recently on several different TSW 2020 routes I have... and so far between 3 different routes, with three different viewpoints and measurements in each of them, the highest frame rate I’ve seen is 30fps and the lowest is a meager 20fps. Sure I hope I see some better minimum FPS numbers than this when TSW 2 rolls out.

    (I’ve already got a question posted on frame rate performance and screen resolution of TSW 2 running on the PS4... hopefully this and any other performance-related questions get answered in the last TSW 2 Q&A session)

    Can I please ask DTG a question? As I only have limited hard disc space left, can DTG tell me, will transferring my preserved collection take an equal amount of disc space as the original download? Also can someone please left me know if they have compressed a drive to give the pc more disc space. Is it safe to compress a pc drive to give more space or best left alone?
