LIVE from Truck Grand Prix

We are at Truck GP at Nürburgring this weekend! Our friends from Rondomedia, our German publishing partner, have set up a stand here where they are presenting our games. There is even playable beta of Euro Truck Simulator 2 shown on a big LCD screen to be seen here!

    1. Maybe september. They never said it will be september. It might take longer.

  7. Well as I said few weeks ago, I bet that ETS2 are finish, but they would wait a little to sell it, because they want to earn as much from STDS as possible. And use STDS to perhaps correct some errors before release ETS2. AND I DONT BLAME THEM. I would do the same thing, and would not let ETS2 destroy the STDS sale for now.

    1. You really shouldn't say stuffs like this, it only serves to create hate for SCS and they've done nothing do deserve it. You have to remember, they made STDS with near finish code from ETS2 at the behest of Scania, to them, it doesn't matter if they make money with the full product or the partial version of it, they don't mind it and are probably thankful for it though. Not to mention, getting that influx of cash probably helped them buy a little time to polish the game some more.

      Maybe it wasn't your intent, although it does sound like it is. They've not shown us to be limited by greed, least not yet...all companies eventually do though, that's just business, but I doubt their share holders are pushing them too much atm, least I hope they're not THAT big yet.

      No offence meant, just trying to defuse a bomb! LP

      Delete
    2. Well, beside earning money, STDS should have also entertained us for the time we're waiting for the ETS. And I don't see any progress with patches. I mean they could have at least uploaded a new strings to getlocalization. Maybe it's just me but it gives you a feeling that something's happening.

      Btw, just noticed that STDS stands for Sexually Transmitted Diseases :D

      Delete
    3. No it was not my intent, Ziland. Like I said, I would do the same. I have already bought ETS2 long time ago (pre-ordre).

      Delete
    4. @Edward: LOL...ya, that's how I was reading it at first...STD's...rofl.

  8. HOPING WE SEE US!

  10. I am sad, because I can't come to Truck Grand Prix :/

    I want to see the Beta :/

    Do you show us a few videos or pictures more from Grand Prix? Or a little "beta-gameplay"-video for all fans, who cannot play it self.

    I hope so!

  14. This proves that the release may come in September or end of august because they already have a beta of the game.

    2. most of the first ~50 sec of the last ETS2 vid they posted on the blog was the UK, the cows were near a Scottish flag (maybe Gretna Green Services), the Humber Bridge, the angle of the north at Gateshead, (dont know the next cable stayed bridge), Dover, then at 52sec its ijmuiden in the NL

      Delete
    3. I'm just hoping that UK will look UK-ish in the game as it does in the real life (or movies and photos, form which I can tell) - I mean, always recognizable and special XD

    1. Definitely, yes. It IS a UK truck as it's right hand drive, so why does it have foreign number plates?

      Delete
    2. I dunno, it seems they're not foreign, they are UK ones, but the front plate is yellow. I don't know how does it work, but you, british people, have white one on the front and yellow in the back. So I thought SCS have done this one wrong, but not a long time ago i've seen a small lorry driven from UK here, in Ukraine, where I live, and it has yellow car plate in the front. I'd like someone from the UK to explain)

      Delete
    3. Dunno about that but ALL British vehicles have a white plate at the front and yellow at the back, I've never seen it the other way around. I'm sure they'll fix it.

      Delete
    4. They have to. I've noticed they were yellow a long time ago, but didn't write about it here, though I was actually thinking it was wrong. Probably that lorry i've seen seemed to have the yellow car plate because of reflecting surface on it and in the twilight when i've seen it the lights on oncoming traffic were already on, so it made it look that way. Dunno.

      Delete
    5. There is a large French company with red trucks, who have some RHD trucks on French number plates, they also have LHD ones on UK number plates, as they have bases both in the France and the UK, I have a LHD truck on UK plates even though it never goes out of the UK as its better for the work I do.

    6. The Birmingham licence plate on that Magnum is the one from article on vehicle registration plates in Wikipedia.

  19. If they are presenting the beta now, this means the game will come out between 20-30 august, because they said a few weeks ago, that they need one month for testing ETS 2, one month from now is...20-30 the digital version, the retail will take maybe more, maybe in september like they said.

    1. Beta means nothing. I think ETS2 will be released in mid-september (2 months from now).

      Delete
  20. Money, money and only money... How many time you became eyewitnesses of carrying over of date of release to receive the maximum commercial benefit. SCS yet has not received the maximum return from sale Scania Truck Driving Simulator. Think they will interrupt the product more expected. Release date specified Rondomedia.de is more realistic. Wait on November, 13th 2012.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The release date is: 21-Sep-12

    this may change. But at the moment this is a more solid release date.

  28. How do I use scs_extractor? O_o Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. With scs_extractor you make sure you have that and the base.scs file in same directory. Then you at the commandoprompt write: scs_extraxtor base.scs
      It will then unpack the hole BASE.SCS file.

      Delete
    2. It just shuts down every time I start it. Been trying to do it other ways - same thing.

      Delete
    3. Here, open your notepad or text editor (not word processor) and copy the following line in:

      scs_extractor base.scs


      Then, save that file as extract.bat in your Scania TDS folder and double-click on it, wait and then your will soon have the base unpacked (can take a few minutes).

      Easier than to talk you through how to use the DOC command prompt, in case your are unfamiliar with it (or setting up a shortcut in Windows). (c:

      Now, if that doesn't work then I assume your download of the tool is corrupt and you should download it again (low odds, seeing as it is tiny, but still a chance).

    2. Yes they are :), look for STDS system req, are the same req for ETS2, it uses the same engine.

      Delete

  30. NEW NEWS SCS TEAM I Wonder ETS2 :) Video or Screen shot ;) Good luck

  31. Alright, I feel like it's time to show a few screens with stuff that was bothering me in the STDS. Seems, all that wasn't anoying enough to make me react quickly, but I want to share my observations, though people may have written about them before or witnessed all that themself.
    1. Vanishing arrow on the road: http://piccy.info/view3/3262410/a484489b6eb3b1c7ca0076ca5088a551/
    2. I was writing about cars stoppin in the middle of the road with indicators on.
    First case - though it was far from traffic lights, cars started moving only when the lights got green:
    http://piccy.info/view3/3262475/a6a7004e6e96a4d9ab8dc08a0c2423a9/
    Second case - not moving Transit. Had to do a restart, since couldn't drive out there with trailer:
    http://piccy.info/view3/3262482/dcf7fdf836a9f081ec967d3aa81cbad7/
    3. Make traffic faster on the lights, since they are so slow, only a few cars go and the rest waits on the next red. Of course, it happens, but not on the almost empty road. And it causes jams like this one (it been twice as longer compared to what I've captured and all these cars were passing me when I was trying to drive out of repair site, which leads to another question - what were they doing there? Every time I drive through there - road's almost empty and every time I'm getting a trailer from the repair site - road's full):
    http://piccy.info/view3/3262493/893c18d9226cd1f2cc04079e4a2cef57/
    4. On the sort of countryside road I was being overtaken by the car. It has started it's maneuver when it was allowed, but then the line became continuous, so it stopped in the oncoming lane waiting for the cars to pass:
    http://piccy.info/view3/3262540/a3b271d7e30d2316b8e6fad124c0f44e/
    I mean, fast 'em up on these roads! And make some driver more agressive, because people do drive faster than allowed and overtake when it's not.

    Anyway, thank you for the game, I'm enjoying it, while waiting for ETS and another patch and/or at least new stings on GetLocalization as they would be the sign.

    1. Can't get to any of those pics, malewarebyte says it's preventing mallicious code from infecting me. :P

      anyways, those seem like AI tweeks, and now that they got a guy that's dedicated specifically for AI programming, I'm guessing most of those probs should be fixed for ETS2.

      Delete
  32. yep had all the above and reported them to std support team after the last update came out.

    as you are saying about the cars waiting for the green light.

    They must have changed this as in v1.00 the cars move on amber which is about right. I don't wait for greens anyway. And when you try to take off at amber in games now you get red light fine

    not good.

  33. Please could report for when estimating the date of departure from ETS 2. Thanks

  34. SCS why haven't you shown us pictures or news about double trailers since March 2011?
