railroad tycoon 2 platinum stalling on .SMK file play

I have seen lots of people have been having issues with this game hosted on steam and running on intel gpu's. Until last night i had this issue, but solved it by rolling back to a previous driver version. if you have a later driver than this installed the game will stall (and possibly crash the system) at the intro movie for the scenarios.

i think the issue is there is a codec missing from the newer driver version that does not support the .SMK file format used in the game animation files.

i am running the following system specs

HP Notebook - 14-am026na (ENERGY STAR)
Windows 10 Home 64-bit Version: 19042.789
Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU N3060 @ 1.60GHz
Intel(R) HD Graphics
1366 x 768
driver ver: 20.19.15.4531 (29/09/2016)

could anyone verify this and is this somthing intel would be looking into to fix in a new driver update.

many thanks

You are running on an older build of the graphics driver. The latest driver available for Braswell processors is 15.40.47.5166, which can be downloaded from here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29971. Please try this version.

@n_scott_pearson 

hi thanks for the reply, yes I know there there is an update.

Maybe I didn't word it very clearly. I'm saying that with the most recent driver installed the smacker files in the game crash both the game and after a while windows. with the version in my specs above the game runs fine. 

how can I save a copy of the earlier driver I am currently using so that I can reinstall it if updating to the newer one doesn't work?

thanks

You've tried all of the available versions? This includes:

I also have a few others in my archive that I could upload for you:

  • 15.40.37.4835
  • 15.40.34.4624
  • 15.40.28.4501
  • 15.40.1.64.4256

Let me know if you want to try any of these.

As for saving just the current driver, there is no way to save it AFAIK. You can roll back an attempt if you created a save point, however.
