Installation of Models Page 1.

Adding your (1st) own/user static (not animated) model to Rule the Rail!

IMPORTANT!
You cannot add your own models to the unregistered free version.

Some times the installation of the user/new models will not go right,

  • The model is locked out.
  • No colour to the model.
  • RtR crashes.
  • If you follow this procedure you will be 99.9 to 100 % right.

    First we need to download our model,
    for this demonstration we will use ID# pic 10379   Download Red Phone Box

    Save the zip/rar file somewhere on your hard drive,
    the Desktop is a good place to start with, you can move it later.

    OK we have the zip/rar. . . file we need to open it to get at the files in-side, first create a new folder on the desktop called "Same as the zip/rar file" then drag & drop the zip file in to the new folder, this is to stop all the files scattering all over the desktop when you unpack it.

    Windows Logo Windows XP, Vista & 7 have in-built programs for extracting the files, if they don't work you will need to get and install a zip program.

    Next open the zip file by single/double clicking on it and save/extract the files to the same folder & close the zip program.

    Now you will see in the folder 6 files/folders.

  • RedPhoneBox = Zip Archive

  • Gnome = File Folder

  • Read Me - Installation Instructions = Text Document

  • londonpb = X File

  • usr = XLI File

  • ltex_Gnome = LIST File
  • Lets go through them one at a time.

  • RedPhoneBox = Zip Archive

  • This one we have just done/opened, used.

  • Read Me - Installation Instructions = Text Document

  • As it says "Read Me - Installation Instructions"
    This is a simple instruction sheet on how to install the model.
    Most modellers will include some form of instructions or they will be posted on the littlevilledepot web site.

  • Gnome = File Folder

  • This folder can be copied & pasted or drag & droped to =
    " Program Files\BrainBombers\Rule the Rail!\Scenes "

    This folder contains all the .dds (.bmp, .jpg) images that are required for this & some of my other model(s).
    Note; This is an old folder, some of the images have been updated,
    the new up-todate one can be downloaded from here.

  • londonpb = X File

  • This file can be copied & pasted or drag & droped to =
    " Program Files\BrainBombers\Rule the Rail!\Scenes\xfiles "

    This file is the model, be it in code,
    "The modeler stores the information into a file and the application parses the file to construct the scene using device resources."

  • usr = XLI File

  • This file can be copied & pasted or drag & droped to =
    " Program Files\BrainBombers\Rule the Rail! "

    This file is read by the RtR program on loading, as well as others.

    pic usr.XLI.

    Lets look at the .XLI make-up,

  • ltex_Gnome = LIST File

  • This file can be copied & pasted or drag & droped to =
    " Program Files\BrainBombers\Rule the Rail! "

    This file contains all the images that i/we wish to light up when you select the night mode, for this model it would be "tp02.dds"

    There you are,
    you should have your first new model installed in your Rule The Rail! Program.

    I Like to think i'm following the KISS principle when i'm writing these out.
    " Keep It Short and Simple ". Not the other one.
