Shape File Text to Unicode Problem

Post  darwins on Wed 04 May 2016, 3:13 pm

I have both Abacus TSM and 3D Canvas installed. Recently it seems that both are only exporting shape files in text format. I have tried copying the txt2uni.exe file to various locations but so far with no success. At present I am stuck with opening individual files in word pad and resaving them in unicode format. Any help and advice much appreciated. (All at present still running on my old Windows XP system.)

In my TSM folder the referenced item txt2uni.exe does not exist! Is this exe file meant to relate to 3DCanvas?

Hi darwins,
Far be it from me to try to tell you what to do, but TSM should output the shape file in binary format, ie compressed, not Unicode.

This is from the Train Sim Modeler manual :
Make sure "simple crash detection" is switched on and tick the "Convert Textures" and "Convert to Binary" boxes that are on the right.

When you click Continue. TS Modeler will automatically create and convert the shape file to binary....


Cheers,
Ged

Mmm . . . whenever I export from TSM to MSTS I leave "compress textures" unticked and deal with ACE files later. There was a reference to this in Trainsim way back in 2002 HERE.
