Then I need a screenshot of the problem and the check.log. You can email them to me as attachments or post them here.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Hans,

It looks like you have set the default program for .rex programs to Adobe. To fix this:
-- Open a File Explorer, go to the C:Sat2Chart\sat2chart.V3.0.0.0 directory
-- Right click on the check.rex file
-- Select "Open With" then "Choose Another App"
-- Select the "Open Objext Rexx"
-- Check the "Always use this app to open .rex programs"
-- Press OK

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Sat2Chart.V3.0.2.0 is now available it gives you the capability of editing existing mbtiles charts even if they were not created with Sat2Chart.

The attachment shows a chart created with Sat2chart and edited with Gimp to colorize the channel and then re-edited with Snagit to add some local information. The section in the Help SaspLanet "Editing an Existing Mbtiles Chart" describes the process.

You can download it from here:

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Some users are having trouble creating and editing mbtiles charts so I have created two videos that may help.

The first is called "Creating an MBtiles Chart and Editing It" and can be viewed here:
https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ahv3fXEZ5SzkhrsgZHV23ZTpDfIIVA

The second shows you how to re-edit with the Gimp V2.6 editor called "Rediting An Mbtiles Chart with Gimp" and
can be viewed here:

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

n the first video I showed you how to create a single chart from the SasPlanet display. In the 3rd video I will show you how to create an mbtiles chart from a route and edit it with GIMP 2.10.

Here is the link:

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

A new mbtiles function: Now you can create an mbtiles chart from the REAL Google earth.
Just display something on Google earth and enter a chart name with a suffix of .mbtiles. See the attachment. This is similar to creating a single mbtiles chart from the SasPlanet display which has also been rewritten to simplify it.

I also created two new tutorials, one on creating and editing an mbtiles chart from Google earth and the other for Sasplanet. You can see them here:
https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ahv3fXEZ5SzkhrsjsoLwSWqnrGvBPA
and
https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ahv3fXEZ5SzkhrskYxVQqxSd4CZViw

The new version can be downloaded here:

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

A few things have popped up:
- If you create a mbtiles chart from Yandex, its ge0-referencing is way off.

- if you don't have GDAL installed and you try to create a mbtiles chart it crashes rather than giving an error message.

Here is a fix, just replace the Sat2Chart.rex in the Sat2Chart.V3.0.4.0 directory with it:

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Good afternoon! I'll start by saying I love SAT2CHART. It's a great program for creating charts.
I have converted to pretty much a linux/mac ship (with the exception of a windows VM), and have been trying to get this running on mac with WINE. I've gotten everything installed, both Google Earth running well (much much faster than on a windows VM), but run into an error on SAT 2 chart after it launches google earth.
I know you probably don't support or test in this environment, but it would be useful for linux and mac users.....
My error is as follows. Happy to provide detail, just PM me.

"PGMNAME Fatal error! Press OK to terminate
ERROR: NOSTRING occurred at line:1921
Content of line:
if substr(allmsgs[1],1,260 = 'INFO: No tasks are running' then nop"

I assume this is failed communication between SAT2CHART and google earth in this environment, but unsure....

Thanks in advance. If you're not interested in the config, just let me know and I'll look at other ways to skin the cat.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Since I first wrote GE2KAP years ago it had a requirement that your computer's text size had to be set to 100%. This was needed to allow it to detect when when the Google earth's blue spinwheel on the status bar had stopped .

This new version of Sat2Chart.V3.0.6.0 allows you to have any text size and screen resolution.

You can download the new version from this link:

Hi,
I just installed the sat2chart.v3.0.6.0 on a fresh version of Windows 7 (running in a virtual machine under Parallels on a Mac).
On startup sat2chart displays an error message that "SetProcessDpiAwarenessContext" was not found in user32.dll and terminates.
Installing all the updates of Windows 7 to the latest version yields the same result.
Any hint very much appreciated!
