I am experiencing a crash to desktop with this message after playing a random amount of time (sometimes it crashes after a couple of minutes…sometimes only after 30mins):
The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver due to exceeding the Windows Time-Out limit and is unable to continue. The application must close. Erros Code: 7September 18, 2014 at 13:54 #9119
I’m experiencing the same problem.
I have Nvidia 240 GT with most recent drivers (340.x)
I found that the crash happens usually when I zoom in, or when it is already zoomed in and city, a bus or a train gets into focus.September 19, 2014 at 12:03 #9305MarcioParticipant
Same here… happened just once before now, now on a medium map @~1935 quite well devolepd it is crashing with this error dialog almost always after a few minutes from successful load of the savegame..September 19, 2014 at 12:26 #9313mikaelMember
If you haven’t already done so, please try to adjust TDR-related (Timeout Detection and Recovery) registry settings. These can be found by running regedit.exe and navigating to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers. If the settings (keys) are not there, they have to be created (with type REG_DWORD).
The first option is to increase the timeout threshold by setting TdrDelay to a larger value (e.g. 10). If this doesn’t help, TDR can be disabled altogether by setting TdrLevel to 0.

Ive already tried that a few times…
When i set it to a minute it only made my machine hang for a minute.
I also set graphics settings to lowest. However enabling high resolution textures seems to have made crashes less frequent.
I haven^t had a crash since latest patch. The problem might have been related to texture loading which latest patch contained a fix for.
Next time the crash happens i will try disabling threaded optimization in nvidia control panelSeptember 20, 2014 at 13:59 #9441
Just had three consecutive crashes. Disabling threaded optimization had no effect at all.
Crash still happens when I zoom in to a city, or zoomed in and scroll the view.September 24, 2014 at 19:04 #9848
Can we expect this bug to be fixed or should I begin to look for a new card?December 27, 2014 at 13:39 #15218decParticipant
I experience the same bug. This happens after a few minutes of playing Train Fever, in different situations, so I do not have a clear reproduction instruction. Unfortunately the game can not be played like this.
Switching TDR off (TdrLevel=0) leads to a full computer hang instead of a TrainFever crash. Is there a way I can provide you with more debug information, or some some low-level gl settings I can try?
- lowest Graphics settings
- TrainFever build 4831
- Nvidia GT240, driver 340.52
- Windows7 64bit
- Quad-Core Core2Duo Q8400@2.66 Ghz
- 4GB Ram

Actually, this always happens the first time a train leaves the depot….sometimes it doesn’t crash for 30mins, but as soon as the first train is ready to go and starts disaster strikes.January 6, 2015 at 04:28 #15675buff465Participant
You are the lucky one my windows 8 tells me that no gldriver is compatable so I cannot play the game at all.January 16, 2015 at 19:24 #16075
Same problem here.
- Windows 7 – 64 bits (spanish)
- Intel i5 -6 GB RAM
- Nvidia 240 GT
- Nvidia 331.82 drivers
Game is unplayable so crashes before 10 minutes of playgame
Any update? Or money back?January 23, 2015 at 00:29 #16267
Still no solution?
I’ve buyed an unplayable game and there isn’t a simple response from the team.
We’ve no game, we’ve no money and you’ve no solution. Really sad.January 23, 2015 at 09:50 #16272mikaelMember
We don’t have enough information to exactly write a solution. There are multiple causes for the connection loss of the opengl driver.
Could you please try to set the power management to maximum in the Nvidia Control Center:
NVIDIA Control Panel > 3D Settings > Manage 3D settings
Power management mode: Prefer maximum performance
Have you already tried different graphics settings (low/high textures, color-depth)?January 25, 2015 at 02:22 #16324
Ok, thanks for your response.
I was trying different settings. The game still crashes applying the “maximum performance” setting in NVIDIA Control Panel. Low or high graphics quality settings has no effect in crashes.
The crashes appear tipically when I zoom into a city.
The only way I could play the game without crashes (at least 10 minutes) is lowering resolution, from 1600 to 1024 or 1280. I will try this resolution for a longer time and I will explain you how it works.
ThanksJanuary 26, 2015 at 18:45 #16364
I was playing a little more and unfortunately game stills crashes using lower resolutions, but it takes longer to do it.
Please, we need a solution.
