Doubts about Beta versions

Unread postby QO1922 » Tue Apr 11, 2017 3:57 am

Hello,

To not do more off-topic there, I ask now here my doubts about installation beta, because I'm a bit confused.

1) Each Beta version is individual or the posterior Beta contains the previous one?
1.1) If they are independent, I have to install one by one, or just let me install only one?

2) In TSW update releases (I've attached screenshots) they say: "Update 2 will download automatically from Steam", but that's not true, isn't it?

Thank you!

P.S: I only have TSW installed with Beta u3.5tb. Number of Build 50.

Build 50 from u3.5tb is the latest beta, it includes all previous betas. At least the parts that DTG thought worth keeping.

The should be an official update to the release version of TSW coming this week. That update will download automatically from Steam if you have set "Always keep this game up to date" on the Updates tab of your game's Properties panel.

There are two types of updates, official and beta. If you want the beta updates before the official update is released You must do this manually. Go to Library>Train Sim World CSX Heavy Haul> properties>BETAS>and in the "beta you would like to subscribe to" box select the beta version number(usually the latest). Leave the access code box blank you do not need one. This will download the selected beta.If you do not like the beta you installed you can select the optout and it will revert to the last official update release. As stated above if you only want the official updates in the updates tab select "always keep this game up to date" and optout of the beta.
