Welcome to the Run8 Train Simulator v2 Overview

Installation - Registration - Help

NOTE: We are not responsible for lost downloads of our software so PLEASE back up your downloads on a cd or thumb drive or some other media. Having to repurchase the software is a costly lesson to learn.

Welcome to our Run 8 Overview page. Here we will walk you through the installation and registration process and also show you where you can find help on how to have some fun with AI in Run 8. We won't lie to you, Run8 is a technical simulation that features accurate physics and operations on a wide range of levels and the learning curve is somewhat steep at first. With that said though, if you are willing to learn we are here and willing to help you.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING INSTALLATION: Starting the installers, updates, and also Run8 Train Simulator v2 for the first time in Windows 7 or newer.

WINDOWS FIRST START 1

When starting up one of our installers, updates, and then Run8 v2 the first time as administrator this screen may come up from Windows saying that it prevented a unreconized app from starting. DO NOT PRESS OK. Select More info instead.

WINDOWS FIRST START 2

After selecting more info this message will come up and then select Run anyway.

 

Downloading and Installing the Program and Updates: When you recieve our email with the download link you may need to disable any popup blocker programs you are running and you may also have to disable your antivirus software as many antivirus programs do not recognize some of the new file formats we had to create for the Run8 program. You can turn these back on after you get everything setup. Also if the link does not work it may be because your email program has it's security settings set to high and is blocking or changing the URL link that we sent you.

Before you start up the Run8 program: Please read the instructions located here. The default pathway looks like this in Windows7 or newer;

Computer > C: > Run8Studios > Run8 Train Simulator V2 > Redistributables > Instructions.pdf

We also included a lot of helpful documentation: So please read the user guides located here. The default pathway looks like this in Windows7 or newer;

Computer > C: > Run8Studios > Run8 Train Simulator V2 > UserGuide

 

IMPORTANT: Due to the multi-player features in Run 8 some users may have to run the program as "Administrator".

Okay, if you followed all of the instructions listed at the locations above and installed the latest updates from our Updates Page then we are ready to start Run 8 and license it. After you purchased the program and we approved the transaction we sent you a email with a Purchase Transaction ID in it. Please save or back up that email in a safe place if you need it again in the future. So with the Purchase Transaction ID handy start Run8 and select a extra board location say in Barstow and then select launch to start the sim. Once the world loads up hit the F1 key to open the options menu and look for the License tab shown below and enter your Transaction ID. You MUST be on the internet to do this.
