Train fever is a great idea, but sadly every time I try to play it, it crashes too much to be enjoyable. It is very annoying to spend an hour building a really nice line and a big complex 4 level junction only to have the game crash on me and to loose everything. Each time an update comes out I try playing again, only for it to continue crashing, I just get a message saying train-fever.exe has stopped working, nothing more specific than that. Is there any log files I can look at to figure out what is happening?March 29, 2015 at 15:07 #18285
Just tried to play again, and after about 15 mins (all on “pause” while building), it crashed again, here is a screenshot:March 30, 2015 at 09:27 #18290
We need your steam profile to see what caused the crash. Could you post a link to your profile?
Also, can you please give us some information about your computer?
Is it windows 8 64bit, what gpu and what cpu do you have? How much RAM does your computer have?March 30, 2015 at 20:05 #18297
Hi, my steam profile is here: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197963150918/
My computer spec is as follows:
O/S: Windows 8.1 64 bit
CPU: Core i7-4710mq 2.5ghz
Graphics card: GeForce GTX 860MMarch 30, 2015 at 21:03 #18298
Would upgrading to 16gb or even 24gb of ram help?March 31, 2015 at 10:50 #18304
We could not find any crash dumps so far. If you look in your steam userdata directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\<steamid>\304730\local\crash_dump
Can you find any new crash drumps regarding your crashes latly?
Could you also please download this opengl-extension viewer
and submit a screenshot similar to this:March 31, 2015 at 20:15 #18311
Hi, in crash_dump, there are 3 files, an old one from sept 2014 with a long name which appears to contain binary data (it’s gibbrish if I open it with Vim), one called stderr.txt which is empty and one called stdout which contains this:
locale name: * (en_US.utf8)

I downloaded that application and here is the screendump:
Many thanks for the help, lee.

Ok, just tried to play again tonight, and after just 5 mins the game just quite and this time showed this error: cannot open res/models/material/street/country_new_medium_border.mtl bad file descriptor. The only mods I am using are those which came with the game (no cost, no road removal etc).April 1, 2015 at 10:55 #18316
Thank you for posting those information.
It doesn’t seem like one of the obvious errors.
Could you verify the game integrity as described in this Steam post:
And if this doesn’t help, try to run the memory diagnostics: http://www.rm.com/Support/TechnicalArticle.asp?cref=TEC3222505
Does the error also occur if you run Train Fever as Administrator and even with no other program running?

This is exactly what happens to me, even after I tried to uninstall, remove the TF directory and have Steam re-install on a different drive. Seeing that everything except the OS on my system is different, I am led to suspect a rather fundamental bug. Is there something the uninstall and removal of directory leaves behind that is referenced during startup? My other computers do not have graphics that support TF, so I cannot try on another computer.

Could you as well have a look if you have any crash dumps in your crash_dumps folder, if so, please let us know your Steam profile link.
It could be that you have a different problem.April 8, 2015 at 05:16 #18365
There is a crash dump generated every time I try to start the game.
I do not think it is a good idea to publish account information in a public forum, though. And I am not sure what you mean by “Steam profile” – there is nothing called that to be found in my account information. I only use Steam to play games, and have never signed up for any of their other functions.April 8, 2015 at 08:59 #18367April 8, 2015 at 21:20 #18371
To clarify: The “Steam profile” is something members of the “community” have. As I said, the only thing I use Steam for is to play games. I have no intention to register for their community. And – if I had registered there, I would not have wanted to post my ID in a public forum. You will have to take security and privacy more seriously unless you want to run the risk of a scandal. At the very least, you must provide a private communications channel for users to send you potentially sensitive information. If you have some place I can send you the dumps, I can pack up the whole thing and send it.
