I will settle down on Monday for a go at this. Four points Roberts at Finsbury Park on Sunday that will need my fullest attention. Many thanks.

After start up throwing a point causes the screen to flash as if is trying to throw the point multiple times. The .ini file seems to have an infinite number of lines refering to the tipper.

It's gone completely haywire now. Deleting the ini file before starting the program makes it work ok. Without doing that first causes some rather weird stuff.

I hope it continues to work as we have a well established way of running the railway. I only use the computer to operate the points and signals.

It has been quite frustrating but it wasn't until we ended up with carnage a few days ago I decided to try and do something about it. 

I usually sit in the driving position with the select and my lad goes into the middle with the Elite. We usually get four trains running on two lines. They are kept apart by the signalling (48 track circuits controlling signals, each with an abc section). The system froze up and we closed the program. The last point that had been called operated as the program closed causing a train to be diverted into one of the return loops. There was a rear end collision with a very heavy class 66 ploughing right through a train of mineral wagons, some of which made it to the floor. Though it wasn't my lads fault he was quite upset. Time to sort it. 

I am generally happy with the system and have had a number of successes with it. I am a bit of a technophobe to be honest. I build and test signalling systems for a living but computers baffle me.

 

Thanks again for the help.

I wangled a crafty few extra hours at home and have sorted it hopefully. I wont be able to get a proper session in until the weekend but it is looking good. 

Many thanks for the help.

I am in no doubt i've done the wrong thing. I had an impatient seven year old waiting to play trains. The session was one of the best we've had for ages so rather than carry on trying to fix the problem we played. I will take the sound advice as soon as possible but i'm about to descend into a couple of days of big railway stuff.

Ok i was probably too tired to be fidling around with computer things. Instead of deleting the .ini file i deleted the content of that file.

 

It has never worked so well.

 

When i open it again it is totally blank. I've rebooted the computer and it's still blank and still works well. It will be a couple of days before i get to use it again so i'll see what happens then.

That file has very little in it. I'm sure there are less than ten entries. I do most of my driving from a Select linked to the Elite. It works very well. At this stage i will resist using the rather large spanners i've been using all day on real points to adjust the computer.

Chrissaf. I can see the points timer but where is the double pulse bit located?
