Gents has anyone had a route crash on them in WIN7.
But will Run if sound files are deleted even though error missing messages show up.

Hi Rick,
Is this the freeware Pacific Surfliner route by Jeff Farquhar?

If so, I don't currently have it installed, but when I did, a year or so ago, had no problems with it.

As it works for you, after a fashion, when you remove the sound files, it points to a resources problem on your PC. Have you installed the Bin patch and the enhanced soundcfg.dat file from the Steam4Me site?

Cheers,
Ged

It can also help to turn the sound sliders down in the options section.

Hi Rick,
That looks a great PC! I don't have any experience of the new generation of AMD processors so can't offer any first hand advice, but the FX6350 looks very capable.
You've certainly got your sounds turned down; to such an extent that you will be missing many of them, but it should help. Don't forget that MSTS is ancient software and can't use all the bells and whistles now available.
One item which may help is a separate sound card - one is not listed in the PC specifications, so I assume it has the on-board variety, although they are very capable these days. I've always used a separate one, so can't offer any advice - others may be able to help Smile

Cheers,
Ged
