August 2008: Upgrade Mk2 is now available for Rail Simulator, packed with many new features, enhancements and fixes.
You can find a full list of the new features, improvements and fixes to be found in Upgrade Mk2 in this README file.
PLEASE NOTE THAT UPGRADE MK1 MUST BE INSTALLED BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL UPGRADE MK2.
If installed, the RSDevTools (February 08) Will be updated automatically during the installation of Upgrade Mk2. If not installed, a new version of the RSDevTools (August 08) will be available for installation after Upgrade Mk2. The RSDevTools are available from the Rail Simulator website.
- Saved Games are not compatible with Upgrade Mk2. This is due to the signalling and route updates provided. These will not be deleted, but instead renamed so that you can copy them into pre-Mk2 installed copies of Rail Simulator if you wish.
- There is a known issue with the Scenario "All Messed Up" that comes with the Class 08 in the Rail Simulator Official Expansion Pack. A fix will be provided for free from the Rail Simulator Official Expansion Pack support page in the coming days.
- Any Rail Simulator Addon purchased BEFORE August 2008 may not be compatible if installation is attempted after applying Upgrade Mk2. We therefore recommend that if you have to carry out a re-installation of Rail Simulator, you apply Upgrade Mk1, then install your Addons, and finally install Upgrade Mk2. This particularly applies to the Newcastle-York Addon from RSDL and Just Trains.
