Train Fever crashes at startup or during initialization of a new game

This problem can be solved by installing the latest graphics card drivers / update
If you are using a laptop with two graphics cards, make sure that you select the dedicated / more powerful card as the primary device in the graphics card settings. It’s a very common problem that the less powerful graphics card is set as the primary device and as a consequences, games do not run.

Train Fever main menu is not visible after changing the resolution

press ALT-ENTER in order to switch from full screen to window mode. Window mode will then correctly display the main menu.

train fever black screen

Every time i just get black screen when i try to make a world.
solution :
When you start the game for the first time, it says something about compressing textures.
If you delete the folder with the compressed textures, it restarts the compression process and the game suddenly works again.
Not sure if this will help but every time I tried to start a new game it would just hang and never get beyond 0%. Found it was due to the dual graphics cards in my laptop. The game was defaulting to use the integrated graphics cards. Once I changed it to use the Nvidia card the game loaded fine.

cannot install Train Fever on Steam

This is most likely an anti-virus software problem. We experienced problems especially with McAfee and AVG anti-virus software. You need to disable the anti-virus software during installation. In some cases it’s also needed to disable the anti-virus software for starting the game.
