New TM Download package

Trying out Reto's installer here for TM. Has everything you need to get started except maps and campaign files. Cannot be installed over a previous TM. Good for a fresh install though since everything is automated.

Looking for a guinea pig to try it out...just need a fresh copy of RT3 patched to C to C, and your ready to go.

ugh...have to go to work now.

RT3 doesn't need to be patched to 1.05 for this installer?

Actually, as it turns out, the 1.05 only contains the RT3.exe file which gets replaced so it is an unnecessary step,

I thought there was some game fixes included in the 1.05?

Edit 1: Yep, there was a couple of fixes in the 1.05. From the 1.05 Read me:

Version 1.05 Changes
Note: This patch does NOT require you to have any prior patches installed. Whether or not you have installed patches 1.01 to 1.04, the RT3 – Coast to Coast expansion, or none of the above, this patch will work fine in any of these scenarios.

1. Fixed a multiplayer crash bug inadvertantly introduced in patch 1.04.
2. Resolved the bug that could cause trains to slow to 1 m.p.h. sometimes when approaching stations and/or service towers.
3. Fixed a bug that would cause industries with 2 possible inputs (i.e. textile mill), to produce at only half of their targeted rate, even when supplied with both inputs.

Granted #1 is relatively unimportant, but how 'bout 2 and 3?

While we're at it, is the C to C really necessary? I think the only difference between the C to C and the 1.04 patch is the extra scenarios and locos.

If all 1.05 did was install a different .exe that fixed a couple issues, wouldn't a TM.exe that replaces the 1.05 RT3.exe have to include those fixes anyway in its own TM.exe since its replacing the 1.05 RT3.exe? Otherwise simply installing over the 1.05 RT3.exe with a TM.exe that doesn't include those fixes would essentially revert back to an older version of RT3. So either way if it's only the .exe that is getting replaced, I think I understand why Ned says it's an unnecessary step.

The fixes in the 1.05 are only in the exe file, which is the only file in that patch. It doesn't add any new files. Now C to C on the other hand does add a bunch of new files, most importantly 2 pk4 files that are absoutely necessary...i.e. the carsideview3 files for the locos in CTC which is the first error message to come up if it isn't installed.

The Trainmaster RT3.exe is based on the 1.06 RT3.exe. This already includes 1.05.
