Blog and Progress Updates

openBVE v1.0 is here!

openBVE LogoAfter 347 days of development, openBVE version 1.0 has now been released! Personally I think this is an incredible achievement–not only that openBVE has been created in the first place, but that it’s been created in such a short space of time, considering the complexity and difficulties inherent in undertaking such a project, some of which I’ve become familiar with while following the development of the program and helping to understand some aspects of BVE Trainsim’s behaviour. Congratulations michelle. Emoticon Smile

Head over to the » official openBVE homepage « to download the latest in the stable branch of openBVE releases. Whether you’re a developer or a user, if you only use BVE Trainsim at the moment, now would be a good time to enter the world of openBVE.

michelle has also added some additional documentation to help you find your way around the program, which you can read here: » Using openBVE «. For BVE Trainsim, I found myself having to create help pages to guide newcomers through the installation and use of BVE, so hopefully I won’t need to go to such lengths any more, as these are very comprehensive, step-by-step instructions. However, if any of you still have problems installing openBVE, or using the Cross-City South with the program, let me know and I’ll see if I can assist. Depending on feedback over the coming weeks, I’ll see if I still need to work on the “openBVE Help” section of this site with regard to add-on installation, although I’ll certainly update my Driver’s Guide and Class 323 Tutorial soon.
