  • Cuzzy [TML Studios]

    Changed the title of the thread from “Update 1.9 Beta - Coming Soon” to “Update 1.9 Beta - Now Available”.
  • Hi, Cuzzy! I know, this don't belongs here, I experienced another problem in TBS! You know, I have I5-6400 CPU, GTX 1050 Ti GPU, and 16GB RAM, but I still have 20FPS, and I have to get 35FPS on high graphics settings. Please, fix this! Thanks forward!

  • Hey Peter155 :)

    I once made a video of all graphics settings at 1050 ti in TBS. And the very first is the best option. Try to set the settings as in this video, you might get more fps ;)

    A bit better, but not perfect yet! I get 30FPS, I playing it for 2-3 days, or for a week, and testing it! By the way, in The Bus I tried to set my graphics settings as in your The Bus graphics testing video, and my game running a lot better! In The Bus I got 15FPS before I set the settings as in the video, and now I get 25FPS! Really thanks!

  • Hi! Anyone can help me, where should I write an ask to TML-Studios, to make 2 another game after they complete developing The Bus? My older sister wants 2 game, and asks me, to ask TML-Studios if they could make that 2 game after they complete developing The Bus. We're a huge fan of TML, so that's why I write this! Thanks forward! 😉

  • Hi Peter155! :)

    TML-Studios, like other developers, do not create a product for every player. Unless, of course, you become a sponsor and allocate a lot of money for this, which is unlikely.

    As a wish, you can leave your message on this forum in a specific topic, and the TML-Studios team will see your message and read it.

    The creation of each product or game is primarily a costly work, which is also influenced by the popularity of the product or game. If, for example, one person wants the developers to create a crane simulator and at the same time other players will not be interested in it, then the developers are unlikely to create it. This should also be taken into account.

    But that is why this forum exists so that we, users, share here our wishes, messages and thoughts with other participants ;)

    For example, as an option, there is a theme created once by one user. You can write your message on this topic:

    Something for Future Games

    I recommend for the future to write messages in a certain topic so that there is no confusion on the forum.

    Indeed, in the future, it will be difficult for other people to find an answer in topics where messages are on a completely different topic.

  • )

    Yes, I know all of these important things! By the way, thanks!

  • I have 15FPS maximum again with MAN DD, and with Scania Citywide buses I have 5-15FPS, but before the 0.13.46539 Update I had 25FPS with the MAN DD, with the Scania Citywide buses I had 15-20FPS, but there was some places, where dropped down to 5-10FPS. Please optimize the game with all buses! Thanks!
