III. KNOWN ISSUES
Saved Games are not compatible with Upgrade Mk2. This is due to the signalling and route updates provided. These will not be deleted, but instead renamed
so that you can copy them into pre-Mk2 installed copies of Rail Simulator if you wish.
There is a known issue with the Scenario - All Messed Up - that comes with the Class 08 Shunter Addon. A fix is provided for free on www.railsimulator.com
Any Rail Simulator Addon purchased BEFORE the August 2008 may not be compatible if installation is attempted after applying Upgrade Mk2. We therefore
recommend that if you have to carry out a re-installation of Rail Simulator, you apply Upgrade Mk1, THEN install your Addons, and finally install Upgrade Mk2.
This particularly applies to the Newcastle-York Addon from RSDL and Just Trains.
