    Hello all,
    There is a Q&A stream on Tuesday and it was said on the Boston stream that they would answer questions from all 3 routes.
    So the question I have is will the ECW 377 receive the same improvements if any from the BML 377?

    Feel free to put your questions down too.

    Are we getting GWR Class 166 North Downs Line services from Reigate to Gatwick on the London to Brighton route?

    Since no official thread has been posted and this one seems to be getting attention, I guess I‘ll put my questions here.

    I have two general questions for now:
    1. Could you share some insight into what is the reason for recent releases not having any manuals?
    2. Will the Rush Hour routes ship with a manual? Or will they just have a quick start guide? With Biston Sprinter (re-)introducing new safety systems, it would be a great help to have proper documentation on it.
    One question concerning Boston Sprinter:
    1. Has ATC/ACSES been given any more attention? It seemed like the system was slowing you down way too early for upcoming restrictions in the first preview stream.

    Considering there is the major update, new console versions, a season ticket, three routes of which only one has been seen, some of it happening on Tuesday and some of it on Thursday, I thought for the Q&A stream, which will come after the Tuesday update, there might have been an official thread to pose the questions by now. Anyway here we are.

    PS4 and PS5 DLC questions…
    After the update, I will have both PS4 and PS5 versions on their respective machines, how will purchasing DLC work for allowing DLC on both machines? Will there be two sets of DLC? Is it the same as with purchasing TSW2020 DLC, with the TSW2 version becoming free to download, with both PS4 and PS5 DLC unlocking each other? Or is there just one version available and the consoles work it out? Or will it be two separate purchases for real actual money for each DLC?

    Will the season pass allow all three routes on both consoles?

    I’d assume that if you made a purchase on the PS4 version , it would also download onto ps5 , but if you make a purchase on the ps5 it won’t be playable on PS4 . I’m not 100% sure on that tho

    Three questions regarding BML:

    1. - Are Metro services included to drive?

    2. - Will the 377 destination boards correctly display two names simultaneously? In this example I mean services which split later down the line: Portsmouth Harbour & Bognor Regis etc.

    3. - This question relates to if we have Metro services. If London Bridge to Tattenham Corner services are included (driveable to/from East Croydon), will Reedham and Coulsdon Town stations be included? For instance, these stations are adjacent to the BML - between Purley and Coulsdon South - before the line turns off to Tattenham Corner.

    I haven't seen or heard any evidence that they're being this granular on licensing. If you buy the playstation licence then you can download any playstation version of the game and play it, but the game engine will download the DLC tuned for your specific hardware.

    Maybe this is something which needs addressing by DTG JD or DTG Natster before the season ticket goes on sale this week. Will people need to buy new things if they upgrade their console?

    I posted about the DLC 4 and 5 versions the other week.

    https://forums.dovetailgames.com/th...next-gen-release-answers-on-a-postcard.43103/

    hopefully seeing as Nat has made a comment we should get the answer soon :)

    "GREAT WESTERN EXPRESS
    - Disabled TPWS functionality to prevent instances of Brake Demand occurring when it shouldn’t."

    will this still be fixed or will it be permanent?

    Update regarding ownership.

    Anyone who currently owns any PS4 add-ons will be able to get the PS5 versions for free. Anyone who buys any add-ons from the 19th August onward will get both PS4 and PS5 versions regardless of which platform you are buying on.

    I thought it would work like this a sort of cross buy where you buy a dlc and you get both PS4 and 5 versions, which is handy for people who have a PS4 but not yet got a PS5

    Thanks for the feedback Nat.
    Additional questions then...
    • will both DLC show in someone's collection on the PS and Xbox stores
    • will both be downloaded or will it default to the specific machine in question
    • are they selectable (so you can download and run the PS4 version on a PS5 if you so choose)
    • Can you download BOTH versions if you choose and therefore choose them from the launch screen on the machine

    On PS5 by default it will likely download PS5 version now as with other games it was a change made to the PS5 os a few months ago

    usual release times below (from past history)
    Xbox - Midnight 00:00
    PS - Midnight 00:00
    Steam - Between 17:00 and 18:00 GMT (so an hour later GMT but it's normally a bit sooner than this in reality)
    Epic - Don't know yet
    MS Store on PC - Don't know

    Where "midnight", that's local to the timezone on the box itself (so if you have your timezone set to hong kong, when it's midnight in hong kong it starts the download)
    Don't be tempted to change your timezone though as this is a breach of license and can cause issues

    I’m not confident the PS5 version of TSW 2 and non-Rush Hour DLC will go live tomorrow. Xbox is different as it works differently, but I thought DTG would have made the PS5 version releasing tomorrow more of a thing. I can obviously wait until Thursday, but communication hasn’t been clear at all.

    I am the same matjamca hoping for tomorrow as that’s when updates go up/out

    but mostly likely go live Thursday with the new RH DLC.

    agreed, clear as mud for the last few weeks. We all know what’s coming just a question of when for what :o

    Sam said on the stream tonight that he thinks it releases on Thursday, but added that he wasn’t 100% certain. I had tomorrow in my head for some reason, hopefully he’s wrong because I’m off work tomorrow haha!

    False alarm. One user got a big file auto-downloaded from Steam for an unknown reason, but it was NOT the update.

    Sometimes Steam detects a corrupted game file and auto-downloads a replacement.
