Longer Animations

Posted in Miscellaneous at 4:01 pm by Kamal

Several people keep emailing me asking about adding a feature to the widget where maps can be animated for longer periods of time. This feature already exists in the widget. It is the “Save Maps” feature in the “Updating” tab of the preferences. In the help part of the widget, it says “Save Maps: Store maps locally on the hard drive for the amount of time specified.” Maybe I need to edit the description so it is more clear as to what it does. You can specify the amount of time the maps are stored (and animated) using this feature.

    Thanks much for this widget, one of my favorites. Spotted an update about a month ago and explored. Found the animation fix and the free resize corner. Both are very welcome. Having some issues with one window not updating right, one does – I run two. I think I’m running 2.0f, trying 2.1 since the back of my widgets say a new version is out. Thanks, again

    I was able to find some issues with the map updating when maps are saved. Somehow, they are getting trashed prematurely. I’m trying to figure out why now.

    UPDATE: I have figured out why now and have corrected it. It will be included in the 2.2 update, to be released very soon.
