DigiTrains 2.5 available on Play

DigiTrains 2.5 release notes

Suggested steps to create your layout

1.    Put tracks and turnouts onto the gridview
2.    Add all your accessories in Accessory menu (turnouts, lights)
3.    Compare the turnout states in Accessories menu to the real layout. When your turnout is closed on your layout it must be also closed in DigiTrains. If not, long-touch the turnout and enable “Reverse accessory status” option.
4.    Match your accessories in the layout editor. Long-touch the grids where you have an accessory and select the desired accessory from the pupup menu.
5.    Now switch to command mode with the pencil icon (it must be white). Disable “Adv.” button (Advanced security logic). Touch the turnouts on the screen and compare them to the real layout. They must show the same. (For this the dispatcher game in-app product must be purchased)
6.    If any of the turnouts shows the opposite compared to the real state: long-touch the turnout in editor mode and select “Show cross part of turnout as  straight on layout”.
7.    When all of your turnouts are OK you can start to add routes. When you select a route in command mode, and not all of the turnouts are changing please check try to increase the switch delay parameter in Accessories menu for your turnouts. Long-touch the accessory in Accessories menu and type in 600 for “Switch delay”.
8.    When all of your routes are working fine, you can add block for occupancy feedback.

dispatcher game: new turnout configuration option

In layout editor the straight (Closed) state of a turnout is always the horizontal or vertical line of the turnout. Default the line in 45 degree is the curved (throwed) state. On the screenshot below you can see turnouts marked with red, where this logic is not good. On the real layout the straight state of the turnout must be shown with the 45 degree line, not the horizontal or vertical.
In this case the following must be done to achieve proper visual feedback of a turnout in layout editor and in Accessories menu as well:
Long-touch the turnout in layout editor to edit it and select “Show cross part of turnout as straight in layout”
