|StormPredator Version 1.53 released|
from our users, we have released a new version of
StormPredator just a week after initial release to
address a few minor cosmetic and operation issues
brought to our attention by our users.|
Version 1.53 10/7/03
Fixes in 1.53:
- The custom basemap handler in "site
options" has been implemented and enabled. If users
chooses "custom basemaps", and none are found, will
check to see if NOAA basemaps (from CD install) exist on
disk, and if those are not found, will extract a basemap
from the radar image and save to disk as SP normally
does with the download only version.
- The text in the Display Options
dialog has been changed to reflect the above.
- The text in the initial prompt dialog
has been changed to highlight the F5 key for calling up
National Radar Map- some users were not finding it in
the hotkeys section of help
- The Replay History function would not
display images correctly if the current radar site was
in Clear Air mode- fixed.
- Added a news item banner to the main
help file that will show 1-2 lines of news, such as a
new version release from the website.
- Added tutorial to the CD ROM that
shows how to create your own custom basemaps
- Made minor syntax fixes in help
document hotkeys section
- Added additional FAQs to website and
SP distribution help file
The basemap image can get out of sync if the radar site is
changed while the program is communicating with the
Internet. Workaround: restart the program and it will
re-sync. Fixed in the next release.
Upgrade Method for owners of Version
1.52 and earlier - download
and install over existing SP installation, or run from CD
installer if you have just received your CD.
