    (ogl_LoadFunction failed)

    i have a nvidia GeForce GT 630M with 340.52 driver



    Hello, have you read the “Most common issues”  on point 2:

    2. You are using a laptop and the game does not work
    If you are using a laptop with two graphics cards, make sure that you select the dedicated / more powerful card as the primary device in the graphics card settings. It’s a very common problem that the less powerful graphics card is set as the primary device and as a consequences, games do not run.

    Therefore a small howto:

    1. Open the Nvidia control panel

    2. Open the tab 3D-settings -> 3D-settings management

    3. locate the .EXE from train fever (c:\program files(x86)\steam\steamapps\common\trainfever\trainfever.exe)

    4. select the dedicated GPU

    5. click apply6. have fun!


    Hello Mikael,

    I have the same problem as p490. I downloaded the newest drivers for both graphic cards and followed your stepts in the NVIDIA control panel – without success. Any ideas what might help?

    Hi alll,

    I have just downloaded the game from Steam and am having similar problems. Initially I got the “update your drivers” message which I have done. I have also verified my game cache without problems.

    Now the title page displays for about five seconds and then disappears as the program quits back to the desktop screen.

    I am on an Acer aspire 7560G with a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 graphic card.

    Any thoughts?

    quick update

    Still crashes about 10 seconds after it opens.

    But if I am quick I can hit NEW GAME and even START , the game says “preparing to play” and then crashes.

    Most annoying


    For all guys with a laptop and two graphic cards, I found a solution in a german forum

    You just have to change 2 variables in regedit.

    Trains are running now! *happy*
