To start off:
I love this game, It's my favourite TML-Studios game. It's such a shame this game isn't on Steam, Bus simulator 2012 made it to Steam, but why not this? BCCS is way better than the 2012 sim in almost every way.
All required files will be attached in this thread, in case you can't find them by yourself. BCCS Required Files.rar
Section 1 - How to obtain the game:
Bus & Cable Car Simulator can be bought on the Deutsch Amazon site.
Section 2 - Installation:
In order to install the game you just need to run the installer. Easy!
Section 3 - Installer issues:
If for any reason you can't install the game, do the following:
Run the installer as admin. If that doesn't work, run the installer in compatibility mode with Windows 7 (right click > properties > compatibility). If that doesn't work, it's most likely an issue with the installer or your configuration.
Section 4 - Frequent game issues and problems:
1. Game crashes/freezes/lags
2. Game doesn't start
3. I can't configure my controllers in the settings
Section 5 - Repair:
Issue 1. Game crashes/freezes/lags:
The most frequent issue, happens on Windows 8+ and with most GPU's/CPU's manufactured after year 2013. I've been trying to fix it for 2 hours and succeeded, now I'm going to share how to fix it. 😊
Step 1 - Installing DirectX-11:
Download and Install DirectX 11: https://www.microsoft.com/en-u…oad/details.aspx?id=17431
THE NEXT FEW STEPS ARE CRUCIAL FOR THE FIX TO WORK!
Step 2 - Installing msvcr90:
Download msvcr90 here: https://www.dll-files.com/msvcr90.dll.html
Drag and drop msvcr90.dll into:
C:\Program Files (x86)\astragon\Bus & Cable Car Simulator
C:\Program Files (x86)\astragon\Bus & Cable Car Simulator\Bin
Step 3 - Installing the required c++ 2008 version:
Using this link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-u…oad/details.aspx?id=26368
Download these 2 files:
DO NOT USE THE "REPAIR" OPTION. UNINSTALL AND THEN INSTALL BOTH FILES AGAIN.
Step 4 - Limits:
This step is divided into 2 sub-steps. Step 4.1 is to be followed by NVIDIA Graphics Card owners, while Step 4.2 is to be followed by non-NVIDIA Graphics Card owners.
Step 4.1 - I have an NVIDIA Card:
1. Go into NVIDIA control panel (right click on desktop > NVIDIA control panel).
2. Go into "Manage 3D Settings" tab on the left.
3. Go into "Program Settings" tab.
4. Pick "launcher (launcher.exe)" from the list.
If "launcher (launcher.exe)" is missing, turn the game on and off again, it should appear on the list now.
5. Pick "high-performance NVIDIA processor" from the list.
6. Now we use the settings listed below:
- Max frame rate - 30KL./S (On)
- Vertical Sync - Off
Then we click confirm and close the control panel.
Step 4.2 - I don't have an NVIDIA Card:
Download an FPS Limiter of your choice, there are a lot of FPS Limiters on the internet, just search "FPS Limiter".
Set a maximum of 30fps in-game.
Now start BCCS.
Go into graphics settings and TURN OFF Vertical Sync.
Step 5 - Compatibility Settings (Optional Step):
Right click on the game shortcut > properties > compatibility > Run this program in compatibility mode with: Windows 7
Right click on the game shortcut > properties > compatibility > Run this program as Administrator
Everything else should be unchecked/off.
Issue 2. Game doesn't start
Step 1 - Compatibility Settings:
Right click on game shortcut > properties > compatibility > Run this program in compatibility mode with: Windows 7
Right click on game shortcut > properties > compatibility > Run this program as Administrator
Everything else should be unchecked/off.
Step 2 - Hard re-install (Only when Step 1 doesn't work)
Go into Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall Program
Uninstall "Bus & Cable Car Simulator" and close the control panel.
Delete all of these files:
- Shortcut to the "Launcher"
- Folder with the name "Bus & Cable Car Simulator" located in C:\Program Files (x86)\astragon
- Folder with the name "BusCableCarSimulator" in Documents
Clear the trash bin.
Then install the game once again.
Issue 3. I can't configure my controllers in the settings
I'm sorry to dissapoint everyone, but I haven't found a fix for this issue. The game is running on old code and there's no dev support for the game.
I tried using programs such as:
"vJoy", "Xinput Plus", "XOutput" etc.
If you want to experience the game in full resolution, you gotta buy yourself a Logitech G25 or a Logitech G27 steering wheel. Logitech G29 doesn't work in this game.
Section 6 - Some important stuff:
If the game still crashes constantly after the fix, post a error log below, it will make it easier both for me and the dev team to help you. To get a log file do the following: Windows + R and paste "eventvwr.exe" into the textbar. Enter!
Section 7 - Conclusion:
This game is my childhood game, I remember playing it on some crappy steering wheel. I'm seriously dissapointed, because I don't have neither G25 nor G27, I have an G29, but it doesn't work.
Dear developers, if you're reading this. Could you by any chance give me some advice on how to "bypass" the steering wheel issue and use it in the game? To be exact, the game detects the controller, but I can't assign any buttons in the settings controller tab. Please make an exception and maybe give us some kind of a temporary fix? It doesn't take much and surely would make some people hella happier.
Thank you for reading and have a nice day!
