tjfrancis: north wales coast is now shut
Sacro: Diagonal junctions are defg
Sacro: The drawing data is ASCII yes, with it blitted via a font.
Athox: does the software use some sort of ascii symbols for the lines and stuff, or is it graphics? I found almost everything in extended ascii, except the diagonal junction bits (it only has perpendicular "offshoots")
arabianights: be interesting to transition from the current model to that without annoying a lot of people though, would have to be done very cleverly
arabianights: I don't think the prices are intrinsiclly too high though
arabianights: I think simsig should move to a subscription model, £10 a month for unlimited acces to all sims would see a lot more people sign up and make simsig a lot more money
tjfrancis: north wales coast is up again with the right tt
tjfrancis: north wales cost is now in use insted of kings cross same ip and port
razgriz33: I feel a little the same, a long time simsig fan and love the work they do and effort that's put into making these simulations are fantastic, I just feel that the price could be lowered a little bit. It soon racks up when you add them together. Again to reiterate I love and value the work that goes into these sims
headshot119: @Laforte, what do you mean?
: please lower the prices to about 33%!
WinsfordSaltMine: Never mind lol
WinsfordSaltMine: Guys can you see my messages
tjfrancis: kings cross now open
tjfrancis: kings cross is comeing back up
tjfrancis: kings cross now cloused be back on later on tonight
tjfrancis: kings cross is up
tjfrancis: kings cross is comeing up in 10 mints
DaveHarries: No preference.
tjfrancis: ok any sim in mide
DaveHarries: So will be around until then.
DaveHarries: I am going out in a couple of hours.
tjfrancis: i can host somethink but may not be for long
DaveHarries: ANyone likely to host this afternoon? If not I will do some TT work.
belly buster: West Hampstead closed
belly buster: West Hampstead full no queue
: West Hampstead open «link»
belly buster: West Hampstead spin-up coming soon
Athox: ok it seems low means minutes, and medium is hours (because it took hours when it was on medium until i changed to low, and then it was almost instant)... then i guess high is days
Athox: come to think of it, those are not even adjectives i would use to describe duration.
Athox: just says low/medium/high duration. no idea what they mean
TheBVE2010: It depends on what you set the duration to.
: Q: Do "track failures" get fixed eventually? If so does it take hours or days? It's sort of on the mainline...
: Afternoon all, im back after a small 2 month break
Jamesh1492: does any one know where the new Southampton time table has been posted
Entimix: ...as I see has already been mentioned.
Entimix: In the options menu (F3) you can select "Use legacy train list" if you're having trouble with the HTML version.
arabianights: try again someone has got on
arabianights: try to connect again now
BarryM: Got disconnected?
arabianights: oh wait one moment
arabianights: I don't see you trying to connect?
BarryM: Waiting for Acceptence
arabianights: you can connect saltley on those details now, I will create the thread
arabianights: ok Saltley with Pascal TT going up imminently
: what I have done, btw: «link»
arabianights: you think I should host salty?
BarryM: Saltley version 3.2 s/b 3.4?
arabianights: in fact, I think I will decide what to host and put it up
arabianights: I'll just update that computer, one moment
arabianights: version problem is fine means connection is working
Lardybiker: try IP 220.127.116.11 instead in that case as that's the IP it gives you
BarryM: Yes but not net. Now getting a version problem
arabianights: definitely spelled server details correctly?
BarryM: Sorry no go
arabianights: try now ?
BarryM: Got diconnected
arabianights: ok think I found the problem, can you try to connect to kings cross on the server address (i.e. simsigserver.ddns.net port 50505)
arabianights: it should be working theory, but sadly reality it doesn't seem to be...
arabianights: cheers Barry will let you know once (if) it's working for me for you to try
arabianights: anyone around for me to test a connection in about ten minutes, if it works I will host a game
Lardybiker: You could also do a search of the forum too as I am sure this has come up before....
Lardybiker: There are a few Mac/Wine users on here (though I'm not one). You may want to post in the forum itself to see if someone knows a fix for you
Athox: And yes it's the F2 list. Will try the legacy thing.
Athox: No I'm on Mac/Wine. The error says "no <body> found" or something, while the "page" says "loading..", if i remember correctly.
Steamer: To confirm- is this the F2 list? If so, go to F3-> Display and tick 'Legacy Train List' to work around it while the cause is established
Lardybiker: Windows machine?
Athox: And that is every time I open it. Instant error. I have never seen a train list on the html thing, it never gets that far.
Athox: I have issues with train lists. Why doesn't every sim use the native components thing? Some use a listing inside the message box and others use an html thing (actually most seem to do this). The html thing is broken for me. I get an error and when i close it everything locks up. Can't even close the train list window. It's like there's an invisble modal box that i can't close. I have to kill the app.
Steamer: Please supply a bit more info, saying exactly where it goes wrong- you may want to post on the main Forum. "Won't load" could mean half a dozen different things.
Tigger: LTS wont load
Guts: All done guys
WinsfordSaltMine: GUTS, What panels are free on All Sims
Guts: 4 panels on Saltley left
Guts: Saltley Bhm and Derby is up.
arabianights: how long do you expect to take to resolve it
arabianights: lost connection to sim
lama77: KX network problem. Will try to resolve.
JamesN: What do you mean when you say unable to open?
richardmckenna1942: Hi, I joined last night and want to download north East Scotland. It seemed to download but unable to open. Same again today and now have been told i have reached my limit. Is this a common problem?
lama77: KX is full, no queue.
jackwilletts: Llangollen at the mo
jackwilletts: Most of mine do it..
lama77: King's Cross host open
Lardybiker: Which sim at you referring to and where does this happen?
jackwilletts: Why do some trains go to XXX and no info available when changing to the next service?
MJD: Any problems read the manual then ask if you are stuck.
sean313: Thanks for your help.
MJD: Open in loader as you did for demo
sean313: what do i do now please cheers
sean313: right i have done that
MJD: Sorry Karl typing same time LOL
MJD: Just the same you will not get the reminder. Use licence manager to register to your computer.
headshot119: You need to open your license manager and assign your license to it
sean313: ive just bought portsmouth simsig how will i play it please i had demo verison
: Chain closed, thanks everyone who came along
: All full up for now, but that needn't put you off

Entimix: Open, I think!
Entimix: Ok, setting up a Saltley/Derby chain.
Jamesh1492: don't seam like its getting done
Entimix: (if it's not, I could host one up)
HST125Scorton: I'm in if Saltley is going ahead
Jamesh1492: fingers crossed guys

Entimix: I'm in.

arabianights: cause if so edge hill is the one to do fairly obvious ly I would have though. or have I misunderstood?

arabianights: but I have some other stuff to do first
arabianights: if I figure that out then wembley mainline otherwise something freeware
arabianights: depends if I can find out if there's a quick n simple way for me to connect to the server and forward a port on it to my local machine (on anything else you can do this using ssh easily)
jadamson2704: what sim do you have in mind arab?
arabianights: Will be hosting something tonight off no other offers by 2045ish
