Has anyone managed to get this route to work? Openbve doesn't seem to process it.

Can you give me a link for exactly what you're trying to use so I can take a look?

Only thing I can think of immediately that fits this description is an early BVE2 cable car by Alfred Barton, but as far as I remember, that was a train not a route.....

So, by itself the file in question isn't actually a route per-se.

It's actually a collection of unrelated bits and bobs in self-extracting archives which seem to have been pulled from Alfred Barton's site before it went offline.
The cable tram car in question is one of the items in there. It seems to have a route I'd forgotten about in BB-NG-3.exe

Like a lot of early BVE content, this is a mess to install.
1. Extract the archive to somwhere you can find the resultant files.
2. Open this folder, you should now have a new folder entitled SFC-BVE
3. Open this folder.
4. From there move the SFC-Object folder into your OpenBVE object folder.
5. Similarly move the SFC-Sound folder into your OpenBVE sound folder.
6. Finally, move the SF&C South.rw routefile into your OpenBVE route folder.

The default train also seems to have some issues with accelleration; I'll try and see what's going on here at some stage this week.

I don't really know what I am doing. I looked at the Train.dat file and it seemed OK. I tried a different train on the route and it was OK. I tried the default train (sfc_15) on a different route and it was OK. Any ideas?

The problem is in the #PERFORMANCE section of Train.dat file.

Replace:
#PERFORMANCE
2
0.035

With:
#PERFORMANCE
2
0.35


I've found that the route had been correctly tested with the SFC_10 tram car and BVE version 2.010011 (BVE.EXE 823.296 bytes 31/01/2002), but I don't find and don't remember anything (almost 20 years ago!) about the SFC_15 tram.

However, in the tran.dat guide by Shaun Myers still available here: http://bve.altervista.org/download/bvetdg.zip
is written, about the parameter "Adhesion coefficent", that "0.1 gives very little grip, 0.9 gives tremendous grip"

Cheers.

Thank you very much. This is why I love open source software.
