Settings not saved after restart
« on: July 02, 2009, 07:37:44 AM »
Hi,

After unchecking Show photos/Details and restarting the application this option is checked again. Is there a way to save my settings?

Same here, I take it you are using v3.0 beta?

Can you confirm where this option is?

On the menu - TOOLS - SHOW PHOTOS/DETAILS.  Even in v2.0 it never remembered this setting.

Suggest a new registry key - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AirNav Systems\ANRB\1\General\showphotos

The sharing data box gets checked again after the software restarts.
Very hard on bandwidth when you use a cellphone or on boat/yacht/ship satellite internet connection where you pay a high rate of fee's for upload/download.

Sorry but the sharing data box will remain like that. You mention bandwidth usage but sharing data, the bandwidth required for that is very low and you can switch it off per session.

The reason the box doesn't remember the details is:

1.) We fear that some customer could temporally untick the box and then forget they have unticked and hence never share. In turn lack of the data on the network which would affect not only us but also customers viewing the network data.

2.) Orginally a few customers said unticking the box gave them performance boost. This is now not the case and we had the same fear as above.

Hope that helps.

mdobuk21,

Can you confirm when you close RB after you change the map it closed down properlly, i.e no on screen errors. As the last map data is saved then. Also I would expect your using Vista, are you the admin and have you installed Vista to a directory outside your program files?

Why am I not surprised by this?  :(

Its not like we are not giving the option for sharing. Anyway we have discussed this at length before in this forum. Please have a search around if you want to read more on it.

Hi

Can we also make sure the software remembers your personal colour settings after shutdown. I regularly have to go to Map / Colours to reset the aircraft colours on the map to my own settings.

Thanks

Jim
