How to manually install an upgrade patch - TANE (pre-SP1)
Posted by N3V Games (Paul) on 28 September 2015 05:04 PM

NOTE: TANE SP1 introduces a new patcher. Please follow this guide for TANE SP1.

Manual patches for TANE builds are located at:

If your build number is not listed there, then you are required to use the auto-patch option (or there is not patch yet for your version). Here is a link on how to auto-patch

Step 1: Locate the correct patch by identifying your build number on the TANE Launcher

Step 2: Download the manual patch for your build

Step 3: Once downloaded, double click to run the patcher executable

Step 4: The patcher window appears and will check the default location for your installation of Trainz

Install error 

If your installation is not in this location or is the incorrect version, an error will appear.

Step 5: If required, click the ... box to browse to the correct location and select the TANE.exe then click Open.

Step 6: The standard patching process now continues with the files being unpacked, then patched. This process can take quite a long time, so generally it is best to "set and forget" then come back 30-60 minutes later.


  • Do not download the patch file into your TANE install directory
  • The "searching for install directory" step can take several minutes
  • Use the "..." link to browse to your TANE install location
  • Once the patch is installed, when restarting TANE, the "Starting TANE" step can take upwards of 5-10 minutes to complete.
  • Please be patient - if a step is taking a long time, cancelling it is likely to result in more problems than waiting for it to complete

MD5 Checksum information:
To confirm that your patch has been downloaded fully, here are the MD5 checksums for each patch file.
