There's a good introduction to the new concept of layers on Auran's forum at http://forums.auran.com/trainz/showthread.php?t=48841
See also this thread on TrainzDev for a discussion of how layers in layouts and sessions interact, and where the layer information is stored http://www.trainzdev.com/index.php?option=com_fireboard&Itemid=42&func=view&id=12665&catid=3
SP1 for TS2010
See the announcement on Auran's forum at http://forums.auran.com/trainz/showthread.php?t=49580
SP1 includes a fix for ATI video boards and a fix for the auto-update routine for future service packs. However SP1 must be downloaded and installed manually.
By default very few assets are listed
To fix this click the gold star to switch favourites off, and also switch to compatibility mode. These two operations might be needed to make the tutorials visible (there's some debate about this, apparently).
Regions in config.txt files
These are no longer specified by two-letter codes. Use a kuid instead now (sorry, details not known).
Some users are experiencing problems with TS2010 DVD's which prevents the program being installed. It isn't clear whether this is a manufacturing fault on some discs or a software problem which only affects some systems.
Try both OpenGL and DirectX modes. Users are reporting significant differences in performance between the two but with no consistency as to which is better. It might depend on whether you have an ATI or nVidia video board.
Native Mode and Compatibility Mode
Native Mode runs faster. Compatibility Mode copes with older assets better. You can switch back and forth between the two modes as you desire, as follows: Main menu > Options > Graphics - there is a small tick box to select Compatibility Mode. If this box is unticked then Native Mode will be used. Close and restart TS2010 for the change to become effective. (Note to editors: these instructions are for TS2009 - is TS2010 the same?)Last modified on 20 December 2009, at 18:36
