Sorry for such a late answer, haven't been active on the forum for a while.
From what I'm aware, error "11FD" usually means that some of the installer files may be corrupted, it could also be an issue with your RAM. I searched for solutions and found the following:
1. Delete all of the installer files.
2. Clear your browser's cache.
3. Re-download and re-run the installer.
If the issue persists, run a RAM test to see if your RAM is okay.
You might also need to install microsoft latest service packs. Make sure to pick the files that correspond to your system's architecture.
Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2022 (Multi-pack)
I'm not certainly sure if this will fix the issue for you, but it's sure worth trying. Tell me if it worked!
This is what I've found regarding what you've said:
1. The PhysX error is probably related to outdated drivers. I'd suggest downloading the latest PhysX drivers and re-downloading the game. But if you're up to the challange of making the game fully enjoyable, you may fool around with these 3 PhysX versions: (I don't guarrante that they'll work!!!)
NVIDIA PhysX Legacy System Software
NVIDIA PhysX System Software 9.12.0613
NVIDIA PhysX System Software 9.10.0513
2. It's possible, but I'm not in any position to verify if that's the case, we don't have the game's source code, and I'm pretty sure the game has been deemed "finished" by the developers for quite a while now.
3. I agree, there's no other game like this, It's really one of the kind. In my opinion this is the only good bus game that keeps the vibe, the newer bus games like BS21 or BS18 seem really fake and unappealing to me. They simply don't have that feel to it.
I feel like BCCS was made with passion and love, in the golden days of gaming. Now it's all just about the money and concurrent players.
Thank you! No matter if the game still runs fine on my end or not, I still agree with you in #3 .
I can't explain it but I feel exactly the same. Secondly, I only have this feeling in one more game - OMSI 2 but only in some content created by the community. This actually proves that games that are made out of passion, not for profit, give back feeling
