Driver Mode

Getting into the game

There are two ways to get into the game in Driver mode.

To play a scenario:

  1. If you want to try the demonstration scenario, select ‘Driver’ then select ‘Scenariusz demonstracyjny’ from the menu (Yes, the name is in Polish, yes, we’ll be changing this)
  2. Click ‘Play’ and let it load

To join a session:

  1. Select join session.
  2. The game will get a list of available sessions from the server. These sessions are Dispatcher players
    Make sure the default presets checkbox is checked (this will load you into a 37WE, one of our easiest trains to drive
  3. From here, choose a session from the list, and pick an available signal to start from, or choose ‘Join Random’

Once you’re in

The Newag Impuls 37WE is the easiest train for new players to drive. Here’s what your interface looks like:

UI for the Impulse

UI for the Impulse

  1. Throttle – simply move the tab here to accelerate forward, ease back to maintain speed
  2. Brake – move the tab here to slow down and stop
  3. Emergency Brake – for when you need to stop in a hurry
  4. Timetable – tells you where you are going. The next station is always at the top of the list
  5. Swap Cabs – moves you to the cab on the other end of the train, if you need to go in reverse
  6. Alerter – Gotta keep you alert. If you see these lights flash or hear the buzzer, hit the spacebar to shut it off!

When you see the signal change to show this signal, you are clear to go. Move the throttle up to get rolling.

Once you’re confident with the 37WE, you can try the EU07. Be warned though, that one is a bit harder to drive. See the tutorial here for how to drive the EU07

Dispatcher Mode

We recommend reading this tutorial before trying Dispatcher mode. This takes a bit of trial and error to get get the hang of, but it will get easier as you learn what all the controls do and the layout of your station.

Getting into the game

  1. Select ‘Dispatcher’ in the main menu
  2. Select one of your saved stations. If you haven’t yet created one, then the default station will be there
  3. Click ‘Load’

Once you’re in

  1. Here’s where the action is! When a new driver connects to your station, you’ll hear a ringing sound. You’ll also see in the chat box what line they are coming in on, at what signal they’ll be arriving at, and what line they need to depart on.
  2. It’s up to you to move the switches and signals to signal the driver to move off
  3. The mantra ‘Switch-Select-Lock-Signal’ Will help you remember which order to do things in!
  4. By clicking on the door of the signalbox, you can venture outside and explore, but be careful, new drivers may connect when you’re away from your post
