OpenBVE v1.5.1.0


This release contains several more requested features, as well as improvements to the main menu system. There has been one behavioural change affecting all prior content.

Behavioural Changes:

In prior versions of OpenBVE, pressing and holding a horn key would cause the sound to repeatedly trigger until the key was released. This has been changed to the following:

  • Primary & Secondary horns: The sound will play once.
  • MusicHorn: The sound will toggle on with the first keypress, then toggle off.

Please see also the following errata note:

Significant Changes:

  • New: Three-part horn sounds are now supported.
  • New: A needle declared within a Panel2.cfg file, with the subject of hour , min or sec will now accept the additional parameter Smoothed , to use either smooth or stepped rotations.
  • New: Switch sounds based upon the current run index are now supported.
  • New: The subjects Klaxon , PrimaryKlaxon , SecondaryKlaxon and MusicKlaxon are now available for animations.
  • New: In-game menus may be scrolled using the mouse.
  • Fix: An optimised animated object with multiple functions could appear in the wrong position.
  • Fix: Object based backgrounds broken in certain obscure cases.
  • Fix: Object based backgrounds could clip incorrectly.
  • Fix: Incorrect keyup events generated when leaving the in-game menu.
  • Fix: The pressure for a straight air-brake did not quite go to zero, causing the run sound to continously play for some trains.
  • Fix: A train with defined bogies for cars greater than than the length in train.dat crashed.
  • Fix: If the restart process was invalid in filesystem.cfg , this would generate an error message & not restart.
  • Fix: A control with no assigned target would crash the in-game configuration menu.
  • Fix: The mouse did not work in the second or greater page of in-game menus with multiple pages.
  • Change: Disable the FileSystemWatcher on OS-X, as this leaks open file handles.
  • Change: Enter key not marked for translation.
  • Change: Update pt-PT translation.
