Re: SatPC32 and 32D problem



Hello Dick,

Just checking all bases.
1.  Did you extract the new 3D map files in the Maps3D_2 directory? These 
are not extracted automatically.
   With the 3D-view  the user can now choose 2 map sizes.
   To activate the new function the self-extracting file
   "Maps3D_2.Exe" must be unpacked in the new
   sub folder "Maps3D_2".

2.  I could only get the two versions of the 3D maps to work if I selected
    a. Setup -> Options -> 24 bit maps
and
    b. 1024x768 display

73,
Gould, WA4SXM
