Copy CHARTCAL.DIR to the folder with mc2bsbh.
Then from cmd.exe, cd to that directory and run:
mc2bsbh CHARTCAL.DIR -s 2111
It should output a 2111.hdr file. Copy that to the 2111 directory.
If you did not name the chart 2111, you either need to change that in the above command, or you could also just do
- that will produce a .hdr file for every chart calibrated in CHARTCAL.DIR.
You are almost done, now.
You probably still have the 2111.jpg and 2111.bmp in the ImageMagik folder, right? Just cd to that directory and run the following two commands.
convert 2111.jpg -colors 127 2111.gif
convert 2111.gif -colors 127 2111.tif
Now, copy 2111.gif and 2111.tif to the 2111 directory. (we don't really need the .gif, but what the heck)
So, now you need two of these to make to final chart.
Copy 2111.hdr and 2111.tif to the tif2bsb folder.
cd to the directory and run:
tif2bsb -c 127 2111.hdr 2111.tif 2111.kap
You should now have a 2111.kap which is the actual chart. So, copy it to the 2111 directory.
NOW you are ready. copy the 2111.kap to a directory for your charts. Whever you want. Then, in OpenCPN
, go into the chart manager and add that directory to the chart list and let it rebuild
the data base.
You should be able to see your chart,
To clean up, just delete the 2111.xxx files from all the directories EXCEPT the 2111 directory. Now you're ready to do another one.
If you have a problem in the above steps, first thing to do is attach the CHARTCAL.DIR and 2111.hdr in here. You can do that by making a copy and name it CHARTCAL.DIR.PDF and 2111.hdr.pdf. The PDF will let you attach it. I'll just have to download it and rename it back so I can look at it.
