Hi all,
I use BVE2 at th mont, as I find trains on BVE4 VERY hard to use. I feel that most authors now are not creating their rotes for BVE2 anyomre, so I'm going to need to learn how to drive on BVE4!
So, I need some help! :D
1.) How do you stop the trains? (< doesn't work, and putting it in 'B' gear, just stops the train, and makes it go backwards!)

2.) I'm gonna download the NEW Class 158, and Class 170 from TSC, and see where I get too.

Any tips......?
Thanks,

Yeah thats about right I think.

For one-handle trains:

BVE2: Z increases power, A decreases power, Q is emergency brake

But in BVE4: Z increases power, Q decreases power, 1 is emergency brake


Other controls:

F2 - Toggle info (in bottom left corner, stuff like time, speed etc)
F3 - Open/Close timetable
F4 - Zoom timetable
Enter - Horn
Home - Tripcock override
Space - Tripcock reset
Pg Up - Wiper on and change wiper speed
Pg Dwn - Wiper off
+ - Doors closing message (on Northern Line)

Developer mode controls:
F6 - Doors open/close manually
F7 - Stop train
Shift + F7 - Speed up by 5 kmh
Ctrl + F7 - Slow down by 5 kmh

That's funny! In BVE2, I use the up arrow to increase powr, and the down arrow to decrease it. I use F to butit in forward gear (and haven't changed any settings). :?:

I started to use that setting on bve2 but my cab became a little cramped! the bve4 trains are though... well extremely good if you can get the hang of it. I am about 75% there, occasional SPAD still occuring though - same for TPWS! damn thing! lol

The one think from 2.6 that I miss in BVE 4 is the advance warning about a station approaching. I usually end up slamming the brakes on and then end up hitting F7 at the stop mark 'cos I still haven't quite stopped. Suppose it's more realistic, but when you don't know the route....

Try using the timetable as a rough guide for the first few runs, after that you should start to remember where they are from a combination of things such as time, scenary etc etc
