what steps are you taking to send the file to the LM?
I suggest removing any existing prime mover files from the LM before trying to copy a new one to it.

RailPro Discussion & Help / Recommendations on installing LM-3S in steam loco
« Last post by DJRCPR on April 28, 2021, 02:53:07 PM »
Starting to place a LM-3S in a new Rapido Royal Hudson. I looked through the install logs and didn't see anything on steam...Outside of the usual stuff I have to deal with all the extra gear that Rapido places in the DCC units, any suggestions would be welcome. I do have a separate smoke unit to add, so one question which leads would this be connected to on the 3S ?

I knew it was too good to last. I downloaded the engine file to my HC sim, but when I try to send it to the engine it's not listed in the sim. It only shows diesel bell, diesel horn & diesel engine. The ULT file I loaded isn't there. And I did save it after the download. I had the same issue with 2 engines so far.

Well, I had a little good news last night. Through several multiple downloads, I managed to get all 20 of my LM2s upgraded to the latest program. When I finished with that I tried to load the update for the 3 LM3s I have. Unfortunately, I was only able to complete 1 of them. The other 2 had issues making a connection with my computer. I'll have to open them up and see if there is an issue with the engines or the LM's.

At least now I can TRY to install the ULT sound files in the LM2s.

Thank you everyone for the answers and support, I really appreciate it.

I just wonder if some of my issues stem from the old computer I pressed into service for the downloads. It's one of our older ones that we upgraded from. It's a Lenova w/W8. It seems to work better if I repeat each task at least 4-5 times.  :D

I have been concentrating on building the layout for the last several years and put off the computer upgrades due to so much frustration. I have just about finished the layout on one side of the basement, and hopefully, I can start on the other side this year.

I can't find anything related to Verification, any ideas?

As mentioned previously there are two verification error messages in the HC / HC Sim which likely relate to two different things. Are you able to remember the exact wording?

When a file is downloaded from Rings server, and highly likely when it's copied to an LM as well, RPA and the HC / HC Sim verify what was copied to what was stored in RPA / HC / HC Sim to make sure it matches. I believe this is done using a checksum on each packet of data. If the copied file doesn't match then this is probably the cause of the verification error. As to what could cause the copy not to match well how long is a piece of string? Probably the biggest one is having the HC / CI-1 more than 2 feet away. I think I got that error once when I was downloading something to an LM from the next room, probably some 15 feet and a wall between the CI-1 and the LM but never when the CI-1 and the LM were about the recommended distance or closer apart.

A very, very long shot could be an issue with the onboard memory in the LM where the data is not being written correctly but again that's a very long shot.

Something else it could be (shouldn't be but it's been too long for me to remember how this presents itself) is how full are the LM's that are failing the verification? The LM only has a finite amount of onboard memory and if the LM is loaded up with enough files that take up nearly all the space there won't be room left to copy the updated program. Again I don't think this should give the verification error but it's been too long for me to remember.

The last official reply I got, which was probably a few years ago now, was "you can use an adapter harness".  Not the most helpful answer when it comes to today's models. From memory because I don't have that email anymore is that there wasn't enough market (read models equipped for 21 pin) for him to consider it. I'd say that market ratio has well and truly been reversed but I still don't expect to see a 21MTC/PLuX/Next18 LM anytime soon.

567 ULT works on the LM-2S.  I have a 2S with it loaded on it right now.  Works fine, plenty of room.

I do not know about the 567 ULT working on an LM-2S, but the Heavy Steam ULT will not work on an LM-2S.  The Heavy Steam LM-1 will work, so it could be the same for the 567 ULT.  And, as for steam, that may be why Ring does not have the old Heavy Steam on the RPA.

thanks for all the info...   :-\

Has anyone seen an official position from RE yet or just assuming?  I'm hopeful that something is in the works....

(my query to RE hasn't been answered yet...)
