The HOF creator link didn't work for me downloaded Hof suite and it confused me haha
I recommend looking at how other hof files are layed out in hof suite and also read the manual that comes with it. that actually helped me quite alot

So I managed to create some routes under the route tab in Hof suite added it under the bus I wanted to use but when I go in to omsi2 to test them the hof file is listed then when I select it none of my added routes are there the route destinations there are listed are from BOTW

The file would not be saved properly My guess or can you screenshot your bus folder with the hof file in the folder.

Depends on the bus you're using. If the sign controller allows you to enter a ziel code directly like the default IBIS, then you can omit the route codes. However, if the controller only works with route codes (e.g. the Mobitec 602 currently in the C400R), then you'll need to enter route codes too. If you just want to set destinations in the menu, you don't need route codes because the list there is for destinations.

Was hoping for it to work with the Volvo b9tl gemini2

That hof is actually looking quite good. There is an OmsiBrighton repaint page somewhere but idek if it is on Facebook or what.

i have most of the repaints that's where the idea for the hof came from so it looks better when showcasing the liverys i have brighton displays
