When I quit Surveyor it takes an extremely long time to exit. Why is this and how can I
TRS2004 SURVEYOR has an issue with exiting a map that has
had no changes made to it. This can be extremely slow. One way of speeding this up significantly is to make a minor change (like moving a tree or
a car an inch) and then exiting Surveyor with a SAVE.
You will still have the layouts .cdp file so you can
restore the original if you ever want to.
The MURCHISON layout seems to have
lots of stutters. What is causing them and how can I fix them.?
Layout stutters in DRIVER are generally caused when the
computer pauses to load content for the map from your hard drive. Sometimes this can be
caused by a slow HDD and other times because the content uses large graphics files that
take a noticeable while to load.
The best way to fix this problem is
- install more memory to give better file caching
- increase the speed of your HDD so that the
information is accessed faster.
Also check the TRAINZ SETTINGS section for
recommended settings for slower machines
Should I be getting a
"missing Content" error when I enter SURVEYOR. Does it really matter?
Murchison has been carefully and
thoroughly checked to give an error free installation provided that you follow the
installation procedure carefully. Don't settle for any "missing content" errors.
It looks like its all there. Does
it matter if I simply select "delete missing content" and get on with running
If you are getting a "missing
content" error it indicated that you have .. missing content. If you don't rectify
the problem first you may find later that certain industries are either missing or wont
work correctly. It is worth taking the time to find the problem first.
Some of the Industries appear to
not be set up.
In the included sessions the industries
have been setup. However, in some cases, these settings are only saved with the session.
If you start a new session by using the basic map you
will need to setup the industries again.
The best approach is to use the existing "Wagon & Ind base setup" session as a base for your new sessions.
The number of wagons on the layout can
have a dramatic affect on the frame rate in general so you may want to go around the
layout and delete the wagons that you are not going to be using
When I go into Driver on my saved
sessions the new locos that I added aren't showing up with their drivers?
Go back into the session and on the
Pull-down menu select Edit Session and Driver Setup and add a driver for your new locos.
