Have just got one of the F Pro Series loco's, TS crashes, so havn't seen them yet. Have read a post that some Voodoo cards my not run 1024, but might at 512. How do I get it to 512.
My card is Voodoo2 3000. Any suggestings would be great.

To change your display from 1024 go to control panel, then select display, then select the settings tab. Towards the bottom, on the right side you will see a slider in the space for screen area. Your's most likely says "1024 x 768". Move the slider to the left until it says "640 x 480", then select "Ok". You might even try "800 x 600".
Your Voodoo video card should run TS in "1024 x 768", but not real well since it has only 16Mb of ram. The Voodoo was a good adapter in its day. I had one, it was great. However, it is obsolete.
The best thing to do, if you are in a position to do so, is to replace the video card. Look for one with at least 32Mb, perferably 64Mb. There are a number of them on the market that are very affordable. I am using an ATI Radeon 7000 with 64Mb of RAM. It cost me $69.99, less a $10 rebate. I am well pleased with its performamce.
Hope this helps you.

I tried it anyway and it didn't work. I manged to get the freeware F-unit to work by changing the texture to 512 but no luck with with this one. I got the F-Unit v3.0 "Super Pack. Update file would be great.
Thanks for you time

No luck there, was allready deselecting. One others possibility I thought of is I installed in the wrong order so I will try that next.

Is this happening with the default F7 textures or the 512 x 512 ones? If the former, then try the texture update - if the latter, then I'm unsure where the problem would be, as there hasn't been an issue since the release.

These are the default F7's. I'm currently running my video at 1280 x 960 so the resolution shouldn't be a problem. As I said before, they'll run if I'm in Explore Route, even with a built-up consist. But when I try to open an activity containing the same consist....down goes MSTS with the evil "report box".
