Rollback to TF v5.43
« on: June 29, 2018, 11:53:50 PM »
Hey Folks, just upgraded to TF 5.48 and all the prior map tiles that were downloaded are unavailable.  I know that most of the servers aren't operating, but have a cache of maps... somewhere~  Is it possible to reinstall v5.43 and gain access to them?  I'm in Alaska, and all the other sources are terrible skewed.
Thanks,
Geoff

Hi there,

Unfortunately rolling back to 5.43 won't help in gaining access to any map tiles.  Everything that you have cached should be still available, regardless of what version you are running.  It may just be a matter of pointing TF to the correct map cache directory?

Most servers are operating right now -- you should be able to get MyTopo, Color, etc up there in AK. 

The skewing problem is certainly an issue up there, sorry about that.

Hey Scott,
What I'm trying to do is access the cached data from the old servers.  I confirmed that TF was looking in the correct location (Options>Preferences>Directory for Map Data), looking for MapsIndex.dat and Maps0-2.dat.  Under Options>Preferences>Tile Sets, no Tile Sets are displayed.  On the Toolbar, the Tileset Selector does not display the older Topo or Aerial maps.
Thanks,
Geoff

Ah, I see -- sorry I misunderstood.

To turn access to the older Terraserver/MSRmaps tiles (if you've got 'em!) you need to find your TopoFusion.ini file.  Default is:

C:\Users\Scott\AppData\Local\TopoFusion\TopoFusion.ini

and look for

UseMSRMaps=0

set it to

UseMSRMaps=1

Then they should be accessible.  Let me know if you have any issues!
