    Looking good, we just need the Train Simulator Classic background as a Steam profile background and it will look great (atleast for me)

    Restart your PC - Restart Steam & BINGO!!!
    Just remember dependant on where you are in the world there may be a delay in you getting the update compared to us here in the UK.

    I'll probably be going over Tehachapi with a comb later today, while the patch notes look promising, there are still small things that should of been fixed or added.

    Got it, yeah, ok. Can't you be just happy with what you got for the moment? Why so impatient?

    As far as I am concerned the image I posted is what I consider to be my Steam profile.
    If you are on about something else then provide more detail / screenshots etc. so we know what you are on about.
    Being a Psychic was never one my strong points.

    It’s a hobby, why the aggression. I haven’t a clue as to what the difference is between what has been posted and whatever it is you want.

    Anyway back on topic - the Leipzig -Reisa extension is £14.99

    Am I right thinking that the classic bundle contains the extension from leipzig - riesa and not the base riesa - Dresden route?

    According to the post at the top of this thread - the bundle includes the route Leipzig - Dresden complete.

    I believe you are right. Correct me if I am wrong but the way I read it is you need to buy the Riesa - Dresden route for £24.99 and then another £14.99 for the extension. So to get the latest update is going to cost £40.00
    As I say if I have not understood how this update works or I have not read the info correctly, I apologise, but that is how I see it.

    Had you posted this screenshot the first time we would have known what you are on about?
    I didn't even know those things existed, I just fire up Steam / TS Classic & drive trains.
    Accusing someone of being stupid for not understanding something you have not explained properly is I consider somewhat unfair.
    I repeat my previous quote.
    Ask politely and you will receive help.
    Accusing someone of being stupid will result in you being reported to the DTG moderators
    Your Choice.

    'Steam profile background'
    That should be clear to understand. What you posted wasnt Steam profile, it was your Library.
    How can you not know about Steam profiles being a thing is something Im not caring about.
    What I do care about is how you somehow didn't understood my question, which was CLEARLY specific.
    I got mad because you kept posting the same thing, and it wasn't even close enough to what I asked.
    I asked twice politely if it is possible to have the TSC background applied to Steam profile background. You did not helped me.
    I explained it correctly so the fault is on your side.
    I shouldn't have unignored you. Since you are trolling again.

    For what it’s worth I have no idea what you are going on about even now and is it even anything that matters anyway.

    so DTG when you say Updates to the controls on locomotives in the Tehachapi Pass patch did you mean all the locomotives or just the UP locomotives.
    you might have missed the BNSF es44ac locomotive throttle bug for simple mode
    i'm happy to say that the ac4400cw throttle in simple control mode works and also wipers too. thank you.

    I was not talking about my Steam profile. What I was talking about was STEAM PROFILE BACKGROUNDS. Which you can buy with Steam points (the ones you get for purchasing something in Steam store).

    Well, this got very unpleasant very quickly. Will tidy up the thread from people behaving unnecessarily towards each other. Being frustrated is fine, but please channel it more constructively than name-calling and snide comments.

    If this continues, we will lock the thread, and issue temporary bans to those persisting.

    On the note of Steam backgrounds, it's something we've requested from our Creative team (as we love the artwork too). We need to work on the best way to make them available though.

    The original Riesa-Dresden route (plus the Leipzig-Riesa Extension) are all included in TS Classic (no need to buy the base route separately). (R3dS41ft)

    The control updates will be for simple controls, is that the ES44AC or DC?

    Thanks again for that beautiful background. It's also a nice frame around the menus, looks very clean now. And overall the dominating blue/yellow colours remind me of a certain nation's flag. Well done, Creative Team.

    Might it be wise to change the logo on the newly posted screenshot winner to the Classic as TS2022 is no more.

    Jamie, your fix for the brakes does not work correctly. There's a 6 pound reduction on the brake pipe with the handle in release!
    In HotBox Part 2 the train hardly reaches 12mph because of the applied brakes (Should reach 23mph in Notch 8). I am disappointed as I've provided a working fix including the ditchlights which you could have used. Instead you've made it worse. After holding the handle the brakes are being released, as soon as you release the handle they apply again.

    Here's a screenie to prove. The loco display shows full release, the F5 hud a minimal reduction which is effectively braking the train. I am really really disappointed.

    I think it would be fair if DTG would comment on this issue.

    Just a reminder to the powers the logo at the top of this forum is still TS2022.

    I have a friend who told me that before the patch, the UP ES44AC brakes wouldn't release. I am assuming they just tought that The UP one is okay so they threw the brake assets from it to the BNSF one.
