Reply To: Protecting Train Sim

Wow! What was it that did not work? Perhaps there are some files that are installed on the C: drive that interfere somehow by steam. At the end of the day, when you install a loco from AP then surely it just writes info into files that live under assets and routes. So, once you have re-installed from steam then I would hope that by overwriting the assets and routes folders with your precious saved copy that it would be identical to installing it from AP right?
I think I must be missing something fundamental. I am so keen to get to the bottom of this because I have spent countless hours building the train sim that I have today. (47 pages of locos in standard scenarios which equates to 433 locos, all with their loco icons showing after relentless research and a total of 91 routes).
