Teething problems

Scania Truck Driving Simulator has been out for some 48 hours on the official website, and frankly speaking, many things did not go quite right, as you have witnessed yourself. Our hand was forced to launch the game website a few days ahead of plan, due to the fact that the game hit the shops in Poland a week before the official global street date. It was urgent to get the leaderboards and online registration process up and running. This in turned caused an avalanche of complains from you, our most dedicated fans, that it's not fair not to be able to join in the fun while people in one country already can. So to make you happy, we want ahead and started offering the digital edition as well, while all preparations were not yet fully completed. There were so many people immediately downloading the game that our servers almost melted, and we did not manage to add mirrors for the downloads fast enough. Then even the official game site went down for a few minutes due to traffic overload. But there hides some good news in the bad news - it's good to have problems because so many people are so interested in getting their hands on the game!

By the way in Poland the Polish box edition of the game is doing quite well, currently sitting nicely at #5 in the Best Seller chart at Empik.com. We know that our games have a huge following in Poland, but it would be a dream to be able to replicate this on other markets next week.


We are preparing the first patch for the game which should be available for download next week, and address many of the glitches reported over the past few days. The patch will also include a couple of new Dangerous Drives challenges. We are planning several free content updates for the game which are going to come to you through a series of patches - quite a lot of new stuff. Yet more Dangerous Drives are in the pipeline, and also a sizable extension of the free-roaming map for "Deliveries." We will also use the new patch to ban the leaked keys which unfortunately somebody felt the need to share with the rest of the world.


We are about to upload some new texts onto GetLocalization, and we would highly appreciate again your help there, both with the new texts and also with polishing of the existing translations. Now that the game is out in your hands you can finally see clearly how the translations feel and where there is an opportunity for improvement. Thank you for your help!

  2. excellent SCS,

    Yeah its a disgrace why people leak there on keys as they are just going to suffer and be used by lots of users off the internet. Idiots.

    The game is well worth the money.


    No excuses for people to illegally download the game.


    Cant wait for the updates SCS.

    Managed to download my copy of the game from filefront which was a demo and used my product key to activate it. Wasn't letting slow download speeds get me! :D

  4. Hey, SCS! The game is awesome, it definitely worth 20 Euro. And I am starting to make mods for it! Modding was never as easy and interesting as in STDS! Also I made a small review on SCANIA Truck Driving Simulator (+screenshots from my mod map):

  5. i have tested the demo version of STDS and i must say it runs good with my computer. But i rather wait for buying ets2. I have preordered it.

    My Spec:
    AMD X4 965BE@3,4ghz
    8GB DDR3 1333 Ram
    GeForce 460GTX 1024MB
    Windows 7 Ultimate x64

    And the game is very good playable with the Thrustmaster RGT FFB "Clutch Edition" Wheel.

    Good work SCS Software! I can't wait for ETS2

    1. Interesting... I have the same graphicscard and get 10 fps on scania_test_area_map. The GPU is busy to 99%. Trucks&Trailers runs smooth in OPENGL but no matter if I choose directX or OPENGL in Scania Truck Sim, i get the gpu is overstressed.
      Sorry for my english^^

      Delete
    2. I have tested it also with all settings to max exept antialaising to off because i runned it@fullhd Res. and tested the demo center and i have 25fps. fast enough i think.

      maybe the game depends more on your cpu?!?

      Greetings

      Tom

      Delete
    3. if i can believe the task manager the cpu isnt really stressed, but as i said the Gpu is on 99% ( tested with msi afterburner)
      sometimes i have about 20 fps @mid settings but mostly it drops to 8 fps
      normally i play with max settings and 1080p resolution. I don't get why the gpu is stressed this way.. i downloaded the newest driver 301.42 aswell
      ok thanks for your help, maybe some patch will fix this

  6. As a long-time fan of SCS games I naturally downloaded this, drove a bit of demo mode and then bought a license.

    I'm guessing this is the game engine for the much-awaited ETS2 and it's much improved over the old ones, controls are more reliable and more realistic, graphics is obviously better. All in all not a bad job.

    Just 2 observations so far, one minor and the other a more major issue.

    The minor point is that the performance of the truck when towing a loaded trailer still seems a bit OTT. There's a lot of difference between a solo tractor and full weight, you have over double the mass. The loaded truck stills seems to me to accelerate better than it should.

    The more serious flaw is that the truck engine stalls WAY too easily. On level, hard ground a truck can be shunted around at idle in 1st/reverse, to stall it you have to either be clumsy with the clutch or forget to release the parking brake. The other thing I noted (which may be related) is the engine revs drop much more than they should when putting the truck in gear. With a manual 'box there is no noticeable drop in engine revs, with a full auto there would be a slight drop in revs but not as much as in the game.

    OK it's "only" a game and not a full-blown sim. However, with a few minor tweaks it could be a lot more realistic.

  7. Well, like you said, the traffic problem does show everyone has a good interest in STDS :-)

    To me, the $24.99 was worth every penny. I'll get my money's worth with this SIMULATOR(not game!). Sent you an email SCS with a couple of bugs/suggestions/additional feedback. Like I said, you guys should all be very proud of this development!

  8. Hello again,

    i have a problem with my wheel. everytime the RPM goes to low it puts me to Gear "N" and i have to accelerate again and then i have to shift up.

    is this normal for a truck?!?

    1. Yes it's a new feature and i like it so much ;) In a real engine if you stop without pushing the clutch it will stop. It's like a feature to simulate the clutch.

      Delete
    2. Not sure about a new feature , I have yet to drive a truck in real life that puts the gears in neutral if you stop without using the clutch . Every one i have driven if you tried that it would stall the engine .

    3. Hi,

      Best game in the serie so far.
      But here I am using a Thrusmaster F430 (no clutch pedal) and this "auto neutral" shifting make competition impossible.
      I spend the most of the time at shifting back to 1st gear or reverse when maneuvering.

      It would be nice to have an autoclutch option available, thanks.

      Keep up the good work ;)

  9. The game is amazing!

    I still could not buy the key, I have some things to address before, but soon I will make the purchase!

    SCS Software is to be congratulated, and the people who leaked the keys have mental problems! The game is amazing and is cheap to buy!

    Congratulations SCS, and open a page on the official site to report pirated keys. So help you keep the original game.

  13. good job.... really a good game except for the glitches (but as u said u'll correct them soon) and for steering wheel control.... i noticed that when i steer the game recognize the input later..... is not reactive even if i have the sensibility to the maximum and the dead-zone to the minumum value..... this is not really comfortable... i use a Logitech Driving Force Gt which works really well with other games.... it respond really quickly.... so i think that this is STDS's trouble... if u can... solve it.....

      But maybe scs can do a better optimization (and lighter) for the graphic engine...I think that's necessary for their biggest proget. I hope that STDS is a way to make some money for ETS2 and for trying their engine and optimizing on users' pc. This show (for the moment) that the new ebgine, and in a bigger way, the new antialiasing system is too too too heavy, even for recent machine!!!

  24. THIS GAME IS FAIL!!! I have played the demo. I have quad procesor, 4gb ram, 1gb ram graphic card and I have 15-25fps on default settings! When camera moves, graphics are DISTORTED! Antialiasing is BLUR BLUR BLUR, edges are not sharp just blurry! Shadows inside cab are ugly! This game is UGLY! This blur and glow hurts my eyes! I know it can be turned off but then game looks even worse! Show me HD gameplay without those issues and then maybe i change my mind! I want back old smooth and sharp graphics from ETS with better lighting effects and models! I have logitech steering wheel, why I can't setup brake pedal for brake? Truck is always on brake. When I accelerate truck reverses. Why the wheel is not turning in 1:1 speed but with delay? If this is how the ETS2 will look, I say NO THANK YOU! I stopped playing on GTS and I'm really disappointed because this game looks terrible... in a delicate way because I don't want to be vulgar. There are two things that I like, truck model and sound, nothing else...

    2. If you would learn to set up your steering wheel correctly, perhaps updated drivers from Logitech. Go into your control panel and click on Devices and go in and calibrate your wheel. I am using my Logitech Momo Racing wheel and pedals,7 yrs old and works perfect with all of SCS games.. a few I have had to make adjustments to work correctly. Just because you plug your wheel in to the computer, is not a guarantee that it will work the first time. Biggest mistake people here make is just thinking they know everything about computers. Try reading the instructions that come from the makers of these products and do not be embarrassed to ASK for help.

      Delete
    3. I have my wheel for 5 years, I have played dozen of games including ETS, GTS and I know how to calibrate it and never had this problem. Everything is ok with my wheel, I can setup accelerator and all buttons on wheel but not the brake.

  28. Scs Software, It's nice to see that you will fix the glitch's and bug's in upcoming path. Also i hope you can fix another thing when the game is at night time dark. The AI car's body gloss is too much bright glossy white color it need to be fixed. I hope you can make more challenges and add it in upcoming path. Also i did buy the digital version and I'm very pleased with the game this is by far the best proper truck game you have made.

    For those people that see disorted blur graphic i have some tips, Turn of the HDR light in game setting under display. Also the game will look much better and faster if you run it under openGL mode do not use Directx. And run the game at high resolution. To run the game under openGL mod simply go to the game short cut in start menu it's under "Troubleshooting"

  29. I downloaded the demo yesterday and played the little bit that is available for free and I must say it is great! The graphics, sound and steering are vastly improved compaired to the last trucksim I played, which was ETS1 and I am looking forward to ETS2.
    Some people are complaining about bad engine performance, but I haven't witnessed any issues at max details. I have a Phenom II X4 965, AM2 Board, 8 gig DDR2 RAM, HD5850 and although this is a mediocre rig, there are no problems!
    Congratulations from Germany for making this game!

  30. I tried the demo as brief as it was

    Graphics fine

    Controls fine using an xbox wired controller after playing with the settings for a while

    If ETS2 uses this game engine and set up then i will probably buy that, but certainly do not want this as a game to buy . It is way too much like T&T which i hated.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sorry for my negative post yesterday, I realised:
    The graphics were so bad because I hadn't switched to OpenGL. When I did, I got graphical glitches. This isn't your fault, it's my old computer. Sorry I blamed you SCS.

    I will be getting a new computer in just over a month. I will most likely buy this game then, and enjoy it. May I suggest that you include in your patch the option to change to safe mode, DirectX and OpenGL in the options menu? I think this will help lots of people.
    Good luck with the sales.

  46. Chaps,

    Can you sort the mirrors out when right hand drive is selected as they are back to front and it is very confusing when you are trying to reverse because your brain automatically takes your eyes to the wrong mirror.

    Right habd drive option:
    Left mirror does offside of vehicle
    Right mirror does near side of vehicle

    Correct method is

    Right hand drive option
    Right mirror offside of vehicle
    Left mirror near side of vehicle


    Cheers

  53. It's a great game, I've tried the demo and I love it! Only one problem. My steering wheel, a racing one, doesn't work that well in this game :( When I turn the wheel a little, the truck is steering a lot and when you try to keep your driving lane, it's almost imposible to keep it straight and not going in zig zag.

    I hope this will be fixed. For now I won't buy the game cause I can't play it as I would like.

    PS: I've tried all the settings and still the same.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I've had the same problem. Nothing to fix. More sensitivity would make the wheel respond faster and then more non-lineairity would solve your problem, like it did mine, which was the same. Hope, I've helped. Seems, you didn't try all the settings, or you tried the wrong combinations. If it doesn't help problem might be in your wheel.

    2. i have a logitec g27..... in the wheels settings if you set the degrees of rotation to 800 degrees the wheel works the same as the ingame wheel.... all depends what wheels you have...

    3. Set it in Logitech Profiler.

      Delete
    4. I've tried those things, all kind of combinations. With games like German Truck Simulator I made it to work by setting non-linearity to the lowest and sensitivity to ~30%. At low speed, below 40km/h the control is fine but after that speed is hard to maintain it straight. I know a truck is harder to control at higher speed, but I think it shouldn't be that hard, at least to keep it on a straight line.

      Delete
    5. I kind of solved the problem. Is not perfect but it's much better. I've setted sensitivity and non-linearity to max and from wheel control panel I've setted all to minimum, also dead-zone for steering/brake/acceleration to 0 and fixed problems with dead zone from the game. Now it's better.

    3. I use %100 scalling..

    4. That's it. Run it with 150% scaling and the framerate goes down...at 100% scaling it look bad

      Delete

  63. Hi,

    Id like some suggestions from other Logitech G27 users about the profiler settings. I use:
    Overall Effects Strength= 60%
    Spring Effect Strength= 45%
    Damper Effect Strenth= 45%

    I think that higher values of OES vibrate the wheel above the normal.
    SES and DES higher values i think that make it hard to turn while parking, which is a big part of the game. 45% is still a bit hard, should i set them to 0?
    What do u think of my settings in general and do u have any suggestions that would fit better to a truck? coz this is a racing wheel, it was not made for trucks! :P

    Thank you!

  66. ...aaaand as usual the headlights are UTTERLY CRAP! Nice to see genuine darkness, in this one, rather than just "not very light" as in the old games. But seriously, you guys have got to get out and see real headlights, in the dark. On high beam, the lights look like not very good dip beams, on dip they are frankly silly. This has been a problem in all your games I've had so far, so sad to see it still here now. High beams on a modern vehicle will light the road brightly for AT LEAST 100m. Get out at night, ideally in a truck but even in a car will do, see what headlamps look like and code them like that in the game.

    I dare say that I could mod the headlamps as I did on the old games but this should not be necessary. If you don't fix this, I'm less likely to buy ETS2 when it comes out. Seriously, it spoils what is otherwise, graphically, a good piece of work.

    1. Yes I really agree. The headlights are rubbish.

      High beams are like dip beams really, this should be fixed. It is very hard to drive with that kind on rubbish lights.

    2. I don't understand why it's looking bad for you. I suggest deactivating HDR, that could be the problem. Here it looks like the real ones.

  70. I'm running this game on a Mac pro desktop I know it's not made for Mac so I'm running it through crossover a miricale program that allows you to run windows games the sound is all messed up though other than that the game runs pretty smooth a bit sloppy when you crank up the settings it will get me
    Through to August though thanks SCS :)

  71. I use sequental shifting and it is soo anoying that everytime i stop or the rpm drop too low, it automaticly drops in to neutral...so i have to shift to first or reverse when going slowly all the time... I play on Driving force gt steering wheel...is there any way to fix this.

    thank you

  72. hello, I bought the game and I must say I'm quite happy with the way in Portuguese language. I must also say that fell in love with the new method of driving the tipper, and the menus, choose between the driver names and these extras, very loved the traffic, because I think that is very realistic in the map of deliveries is also very well built, I hope that the cities of ETS2 are identical. Now comes the negative parts: I have a HP G62 Laptop. with an intel pentium and an ATI 512 mb, I think the game still hangs often when I use the lights and think it still slows down, should fix this and make a version or improve the graphics of the game, they are spectacular, but try to make graphics that are not too heavy. apart from that, I hope the two ETS is similar to this game, and with the improvements I mentioned above: D thank you and hope that in August then the great ETS2 skirt: D

    1. I absolute has NON problem with steering at all.
      I use Logitech G27 and my son does not have any problems. He uses G25. You just need to choose the right settings, then its a dream.

      Delete
    2. could you list the settings you use for the G27 please

      Delete
    3. Yes. I do not use Logitech software.
      In Windows 7 I do NOT use combined pedal option.
      In game under controller, I have selected Logitech G27 and Wheel as sub. Deadzone are almost zero in stering, speed and clutch. Steering sensitivity is in center, and non-linearity is almost to the left.
      Under steering axis I press out to the right and turn the wheel. I also do this for Acc, brake and clutch. Thats it. Hope that will help you.

  77. I try the demo I found the game was superior, it is well optimizer, very pretty graphically, its sounds magniphique so I buy them all without hesitation after 1 second bravot SCS great job continue like this.

  78. I think the replay sound doppler effect on TV camera replays is the wrong way round. When the truck is moving towards the camera the horn pitch should be higher and lower when moving away. At the moment it is the opposite way around...?

  79. I love this game! Great job SCS! Three suggests though:1,make the acceleration highway ramps longer;2,make the speed limits make reasonable(70kmh in the city rather than 90kmh);and 3, make it easier to brake when coming to a stop light.

  80. hello, about the game: the sound of gabine very low, and the graphics, although they are beautiful, very heavy, I have a video corei7 4GB + 1GB 256-bit and not run on high-level, several things need to disable so that it becomes playable.

    What machine did you use for testing?

  81. I have a Fanatec wheel and Fanatec Clubsport pedals, using 2 different USB cables, it will not recognize my pedals, where all other games will. If I choose brake and press my brake, it says nothing is being pushed. I have fiddled with the settings for over an hour, cannot get them to work, please fix so it recognizes seperate pedals and wheel in game. Else I will not be buying the full version Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I have separate pedals as well. Cant use them with this, very disappointed :( Please sort this out in a patch SCS! Being able to use more than one input devise is essential...come on guys, it's 2012.

  83. i have to say cant say nothing bad at all been really smooth gameplay,the g25 using clutch and high+low range AWESUM!....dangerous driving the flood brilliant love it,
    had few friends round playing taken turns all loved it they said same as me only thing missing was multiplayer on free roaming but tht was only thing missing otherwise VERY WELL DONE! :)

  85. well,i have to say bloody brilliant,im using only a standad run of the mill desktop machine settings on high using fraps
    60/60fps i was optmistic buying this due to earlier versions but thought what the heck...WELL!!....you certainly got it togeather!!!...the extreme driving WOW love it,the graphics is just pure eye candy im drooling,using the g25 and trackir5 with clutch gear range on shifter about time Nice one apart from the few visual bugs or glitches and bigger roaming etc,you are already addressing,this by far has got to be the best i have seen and played,as some one said in another post it would be nice seeing a multiplayer in free roaming even if a direct ip,as this is 2012 90+percent of games have multiplayer even really old games...but anyhow the work and thought you have put into this seems like you started from the ground up and actually listened to what us good people have said afterall we are the ones that buy it but anyway thank you! and look forward to ets2 in the meantime time for some more driving :D all the best...
