Latest update lost LGB loco icons, but still showed on tablet. After re installing them on cs3, they've vanished off tablet. I've deleted and reinstalled main station app and still no LGB icons on tablet. Any cures please.

I lost most of the registered LGB loco icons with the latest CS3 update, v. 2.3.1(8) too! It was because most of the icons were moved to a new "LGB" subfolder in the "lokicons" folder to make them easier, supposedly, for users to find. The result was the link to the pics was lost. I had to use the "Edit Locos" function and click on the ??? to navigate to and restore the pics. I don't use the Mainstation App, so am not sure what you need to do to get them back on your tablet. I suggest closing out the app, re-boot the CS3 (after the icons are restored), than open the Mainstation app again to see if that works.

Failing that, try out the web browser based Control app. If you do use the web browser app, set your tablet or phone to "Request Desktop Website", otherwise the browser app may not screen update properly. I found this out when I was trying anything I could think of to fix the screen update problem I was having on my iphone. Requesting the desktop website seems to have fixed the problem.

Exactly the same as mine has done. Still don't have pictures on phone app now.

I've got the Mobile Station app on my iphone. It's screwed up too. It is no longer supported by Märklin. So it is time to migrate over to the web browser based control. The latest CS3 English language start-up guide instructions give good instructions on page 26 of what to do. https://streaming.maerklin.de/public-media/anleitungen/CS3_Manual_EN_final-lo.pdf

Edit added: I just found out about this a few days ago on the marklin-users.net community | Home site. It is a very useful and up to date "User Tutorial" for the CS3 running software version 2.

Seeing how I get on with the web based version. First impressions, very clunky. Time will tell, but I have my pictures back. Screenshot_20210822_183004_com.huawei.android.launcher_edit_78605125349984.jpg

Thank you, I'll have a play when I've got a few minutes. Marklin like Microsoft need to stop messing and make sure what is not a cheap product works and works properly. Double headed doesn't work on tablet either.
