Known Errors when patching

  • Patch gets stuck at Ready to Begin (Mac users only)
    >> This error requires that you download the latest patcher from this link and run the patcher directly from your desktop.

  • Invalid patch target slected. This patcher is not applicable
    >> This error means that you are trying to patch either the wrong build, or you have downloaded the wrong patcher. Please check the news page to ensure you have the correct patcher for your build.
     
  • Path not viable - checksum error. 
    >> When patching, there is a chance that you will get a “Checksum mismatch” due to a corrupted file. This means that your build cannot be patched unless the original file is replaced. In this case, we recommend you either patch a back-up copy, reinstall your original build and patch that, or download the Full Install option.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. I lost all my routes after updating. Where did they go?

A. The most likely problem is that you have renamed your install folder, and therefore when restarting TANE, a new local data folder was created. You can point your updated TANE SP2 to your old local data folder in Trainz Settings > Install tab, then restart TANE.

Q. I have the DRM-Free version - how do I patch?

A. For DRM-Free versions 84352 and 84356, ensure you follow these steps:

  • you are online
  • you have your MyTrainz Username entered in Trainz Settings > Internet
  • you have "Disable Online Features" unticked (also found under Trainz Settings > Internet tab)
  • restart after unticking that option
  • change the patch stream to Public
  • the patch process should now begin

Q. My build number xxxxx does not have a patch showing as available

A. If you have an SP1 Beta version installed, then use the change streams option to ensure your patcher can find the right stream to check for available patches. Also ensure you have your Username and Password entered.

For older installs (less than build 79000), there are NO IN-GAME PATCHES to SP1. You need to download and use the SP1 Patch Installer from the SP1 Patch Page.

Q. When the patcher ask me to "Select Target", what do I do?

A. On PC, the "target" is the TANE.exe file that is in the install folder of the version you wish to patch from. e.g. C:/ProgramFiles/N3VGames/TANE_78660

On Mac the target is your TANE .app file. e.g. Trainz A New Era.app

Q. When opening a route or session, I see a message about unsubmitted edits. What do I do?

A. In SP2, routes are opened for edit (OFE) in the database and saved at runtime (rather than at specified intervals). If your game crashes, next time you edit the route, it will still be OFE. You can choose to either "Submit the Edits" which means the version that is OFE will be loaded, or you can "Revert" in which case, the previously saved version will be used.
