Re: GE2KAP Map Maker for OPENCPN

With the slider all the way to the right I get NOAA only , all the way to the left I get GE, In the middle i get both with no land transparencey. One just completely overlays the other.

Remember Paul, your houseboat is called Patience...

Skua,

With the slider all the way to the right have you actually pressed OK and looked at the chart produced? If you also had "Make Land Transparent" checked, the resulting chart would show the GE in the land areas and the chart in the sea areas.

Re: GE2KAP Map Maker for OPENCPN

Yup do all that. Land never becomes transparent, just a 1 to 1 fade from GE to NOAA/CM93

Re: GE2KAP Map Maker for OPENCPN

Not sure what you mean by that. Please send me a screenshot of both GE2KAP and the resulting chart.

Re: GE2KAP Map Maker for OPENCPN

All you've shown me is some screen captures of the edit window with the slider at different positions. Please follow these instructions exactly:

1. Display the are on OpenCPN
2. Press Create Chart on GE2KAP.
3 When it stops in the GE Edit window, do not move the slider leave it all the way to the right. Press OK
4. When you finally get the "Successfully Created" message on GE2KAP, press the View Chart button.
5. That is what the chart will look like if you move the .KAP file that was created to OpenCPN.
6. You will see that the land areas are GE, the water is the chart.

Re: GE2KAP Map Maker for OPENCPN

AHA! I figured out my problem. I assumed that the view I saw while fiddling with the slider was what I got, so I was always moving it down to the left, and thereby removing the transparency. Then of course that's what it would look like. I figured this out when you said to view the chart before save, and realized the difference, between what I saw and what was saved.

Thank you kindly!

Re: GE2KAP Map Maker for OPENCPN

Glad you figured it out.

There is a newer version of GE2KAP available that fixes some issues and also provides Help for each field by clicking F1.

You can get it here: www.gdayii.ca/Downloads then click on GE2KAP.V10.0.2.2.exe
