  • Sean, Hoping all is well. was on SRS 5/23/18, moving some power to service area, it took longer than I wanted but was fun! I Saw your chat that you were working a local switch job to finish. Appreciate all the help that you have given me,(being a beginner), with your help i'm getting more comfortable with the 'whole' run8 / stream process! Note: Keep your YouTube Streams going, I've learned a lot from them! Keep your 'Spirits' up! Tim:)

  • Hey Sean.

    I've been out of the run 8 loop for a while and haven't been on the RTS servers in quite some time.  I was wondering if you could tell me what I have to do to get back into the swing of things as far as new ops changes and server info goes.  Thanks a bunch.



    Nate.

  • Sean,just finished watching your session stream 4/25/18 Wed. I noticed you having problem pulling your train,when you clicked on the engine, I noticed that the engines were not 'Powered' on! Check it out the startup sliders are 'red' not 'green'. NOTE:Not sure if it was all of the engine 'PWR' or just one engine. Anyways another good session hosted! see you at the next one. Tim

    • I was trying to pull unpowered engines with the air bled if that's what you meant.  Apparently that doesn't work.

    • Oh! Understand, that's what was happening. Thanks for the explanation. Tim

  • Hi Sean, another good session, I know you were busy in the yard, sorry I missed some of your DS responses, they faded away before had a chance to respond, I did have a question about the texture / transition from SBD to WC, in single player I could drive through the elevated textures with no problem but,in multiplayer it stopped my train quickly! I hope the run8 guys will slove this in version 3. Also what does a Holster do? is he like a conductor? Anyways had a good time see you at the next one. Tim

  • Sean what do I put for the server 'name' in the client window? And which of the LA Extra Board to click on? Thanks! see you sunday. Tim

    • The server name is anything you want.  You probably already had one setup when you joined me in the past it can be anything that identifies what server your on for your refrence.  As for the extra board same thing.  If you like being in Hobart to start for example there might be an extra board there.  You can also save new extra board locations as well.  But there are plenty to give you a spot where you may start from in an MP session.  If your in the wrong place you can always transport and fly.

  • Hi I saw your wed.4 RTS stream, learned a lot about ED, when I join your server it says that there is a "mismatch with host/server database, then connects me anyway! Is this a normal process? Also I had to signup for wed. session (twice), then delete one, the first time did not take, so I signed in again, that might have caused conflicting info, for me when you checked the signups. Sorry! See you Sunday! Tim:)

    • Not sure what the mismatch means to be honest.  Glad the ED stuff helped.

  • Hi Sean, I have been watching many of your videos as time permits over the last few months and found them very informative.  I now have Run8 v.,2 and find myself spending many hours on it.  I have looked at some of the other servers and am interested in joining RTS.  Not as much noise and horsing around with you guys in session.  Maybe doing locals and yardwork as well as main line running would be my cup of tea.  I must have a couple thousand hours in MSTS so moving into Run8 has been easy (except for learning the keyboard).  I will eventually get a Rail Driver but thought  it would be best to go through the pain of learning the keboard commands first :)  Thanks for your posts and I'll be looking at this site to figure out how to join.  

    One thing, I have not located any specs on internet connection.  What do you think are the optimal up/down and latency levels for a good connection?  My current connection is not the best right now.

    I had some fun the other day.  I built a 130 car loaded coal train with mid-train power and configured the HP/T to 3.0 and then ran it down Tehachapi sucessfully :)  The train mass to near 15,100 tons and mainly  keeping it between 15 and 18 mph  with dynamic braking and AI in the mix.....lots of fun!!!

    Thanks very much, David

    • Probably because I rode in a caboose the night before?  Other than that nothing has changed.
