What exactly happens? Any messages. Does it go to the loading screen? Will it start from the .exe file within steamapps/common/Train Sim World/WindowsNoEditor? More information would be helpful.

All it gives is the small slash screen. Yes it does start from the.exe within steamapps/common/Train Sim World/WindowsNoEditor?

when I go into task manager it does say its using the resources.

I have also uninstalled and reinstalled from steam many times. I even installed mods from RWA not sure but deleted them yesterday to see if that caused the issue.

Did you try starting using the start button in Steam, just a thought?

Is TSW installed on your system drive or on another drive? Are you running TSW on your graphics card? If you have a NVIDIA card add via the control panel.

TSW is under my steam directory. I have no idea if I'm running TSW on my graphics card.

If you have an NVIDIA graphics card open the control panel go to Manage 3D settings/program settings. Search through Select a program to customize to see if TSW is listed. If not listed go to add and see if TS2Prototype.exe is listed. Select TS2Prototype.exe if it is there, if not browse to steamapps/common/Train Sim World/WindowsNotEditor for TS2Prototype.exe select this and It should be added to NVIDIA control panel.

has TSW ever worked or have you had this issue from the start? Please humor me. From the Steam page in the upper LH corner help tab/system information copy and paste that information here. Not as confusing as DX-diag.

when you uninstalled TSW did you go and manually remove all left over folders. Reinstalling over a corrupted folder will sometimes cause this issue it will perpetuate the issue. I do not see any obvious reason why it will not run your processor is a bit slow but it ran previously. Do you recall what happened just prior to this issue? Have you changed your monitor resolution, is this the default resolution?
