Bug Description

The alerter/deadman in MSTS stay make noise, until you have reset.

Becauze in MSTS this soundstream works so, i add in my sound the sounds that folow if you not reset in 4 seconds (Emergency brake & bleeding airreservoir...)

Bud in Open rails, the Alerter go, i dont reset, and after few seconds the sound stops.

If the train is on zero speed, the alerter not working.

The country where i'am living, the alerter working if reverser is on forward/backward.

and by zero speed. In MSTS is this perfectley program in the ENG file:

 VigilanceMonitor (
  MonitoringDeviceMonitorTimeLimit ( 34 )
  MonitoringDeviceAlarmTimeLimit ( 30 )
  MonitoringDevicePenaltyTimeLimit ( 0 )
  MonitoringDeviceCriticalLevel ( 0 )
  MonitoringDeviceResetLevel ( 0 )
  MonitoringDeviceAppliesFullBrake ( 1 )
  MonitoringDeviceAppliesEmergencyBrake ( 0 )
  MonitoringDeviceAppliesCutsPower ( 1 )
  MonitoringDeviceAppliesShutsDownEngine ( 0 )
  MonitoringDeviceResetOnDirectionNeutral ( 1 )
                MonitoringDeciceResetOnZeroSpeed ( 0 )

MSTS Thumbnail: on 2:30 minutes.

For more info or thumbnails, contact me please.

In advance thanks,

X3610 is download, i have test with a train without TCS scripts.

If i put reverser in forward/backward, after 1 minute i have no alertersound, onley by driving.

If i drive, alerter working, if i let alerter do emergencybraking the sound stopt if the braking is begin.

Before i must testing, is there something in the ENG file, that i must input?

By default, ResetOnZeroSpeed is set to 1.
Did you force it to 0 ?

Stijn (stijndecaluwe) wrote :


Good tip, the piece for monitoring was use of a ENG file that not contains that commando

i have add this line, and set to zero like you said, and yes, it works.

Great :-)

Bud if the soundfade can be fix, than it is 100% ;-)

example in MSTS, i record today for you:




In movie 3 you see the CTRL + numpad4 of MSTS Bin, can this implanted to in ORTS ?

Bud some trains,French trains (BB36000) and TGV's have a button that you can test the alerter, becauze BB36000 and TGV have well that ZERO speed to 1 need. bud that is idea for place on the forum. If the soundstream is like in MSTS (see movies) than is this bug for me fixed

Thanks for support

As an impact of the code rewriting, it is no longer possible to disable the speed control because the alerter checkbox no longer disable speed control.

A speed control checkbox must be added.

And the fix for the soundtrigger is that posible, that the alerter.wav replay until the driver press resetbutton/pedal?

Hello Serana,

Can you do this fix in youre France.tcs script too please?

I will ask of it possble too to add a VACMA TEST key like in real for test the VACMA on zero speed. It is button on BISD panel.

In case the standard TCS i have repley on Elvast Tower forum what i advise for finetuning of the ALERTER (Resettimer like in MSTS...)

In advance thanks,
