    I normally ignore the request to log in, but since I rediscovered this forum and worked out my password I thought I'd give it a go. But couldn't see anything different in the Sim. Is anything special meant to happen, otherwise I don't see the point of logging in. You must know who I am from Steam.

    You can read this FAQ from their support page about the benefits of it.

    Logging in to Dovetail Live lets you contribute to community challenges, keep track of your progress online, and more.

    Most differences will appear online although some rewards (such as dioramas and overlays) do appear in-game.

    Your Dovetail Live profile page shows:
    • Driver's Logbook - tracks your progress, performance, and driving status,
    • Railfan Shots - uploaded in-game screenshots*,
    • Mastery (not available yet) - complete specific objectives to unlock rewards, and
    • Rewards (not available yet) - dioramas, scenery, and wallpaper.
    *Hold X (Xbox), hold Square (PS), or press Ctrl-F10 (PC) to take a screenshot and upload it to Dovetail Live.

    The Driver's Logbook doesn't work for me. When I use the link I only see a background that looks like a blue sky, but I can't see any text.
    Also, I do not know how to access the Railfan Shots. Maybe the option is in the Driver's Logbook that doesn't work for me?

    *Update*
    To quote the represetative that replied back to me: "Unprecedented demand on the service has led to some players not being able to access the logbook. Please bear with us while we get the service back online for all."

    We ll get it soon :D

    There are some scaling issues needed to get the log book working properly for everyone, but we'll get there soon enough.

    Are there plans to add the stopping accuracy to the logbook? Currently it only shows my arrival time vs timetable, and I'm particularly proud of the bakerloo run where my worst "miss" was 4 yds!

    As DT Live forces me to re-enter my credentials in every other day I prefer to skip it completely. :mad:

    That was the reason I created an account back in 2018 but never used it, it was too much a PITA entering details every time, but TSW2 seems to remember now, I only had to log in once so far! (that's probably jinxed it now!)

    Yep, I've had to re-log in to DTL on both the PC and Xbox today! And my logbook is now empty, the services I had showing yesterday have vanished. :(

    Same here, you're not alone. Hoping this is related to the work they are doing to get Dovetail Live to work for everyone.

    That's reassuring, I was beginning to wonder if I had broken it myself by logging into the same account from two different systems!

    I am still having issues, one of the two services from yesterday has appeared, the rest are gone.

    In mastery I spent some time on the LIRR (2020) and yet nothing has triggered. Checked I am still logged in to DTL, I must be because in options I get F1 to log out. I thought maybe log out and back in, but got the dire warning about files being deleted. Decided against in case a file was sitting on my pc waiting to upload to DTG servers ...

    Progress in Great Western is still as it was. But "all" I need to do there is level up a few times, and as I'm already quite high up its going to take ages!

    It's not you. On TSW2, my logbook hasn't updated in days; it's still blank. I sent in a ticket, and this is what they said:

    "The driver's logbook is currently in the beta phase and there have been some significant hurdles to overcome. However, the service is being continually improved and we hope to have it fully functional very soon."

    Probably have to wait until it's fully functional to see if it can upload the previous runs.

    Yet another "feature" that others may well enjoy (such as all rewards systems, mastery, etc.) and I'm happy for them, but for which I have no use whatsoever. Thanks to DTG for trying to provide something for everyone, but I'm satisfied driving trains.

    I haven’t read a compelling reason to join yet.
    As it is, when I begin, I rapidly click through the initial screens.
    I know who made the game. I don’t need screenshots.
    I assume they are a delaying tactic to allow time for the game to load.

    The log on screen appears to just add to the delay.

    Please stay on topic here. If you want to express your opinion, open a thread.

    So, if you encounter the problem with accessing the DTL logbook (you only see a blue background), delete the cookies for DTL. If that doesnt work, then you probably need to wait. Also your railfan shots can be viewed under https://live.dovetailgames.com/live/train-sim-world/profile/shots
