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!

Hey Scott,
Everything was fine till today.  Now when I select either Topo or Aerial, the tileset reverts to Landsat.  Confirm that "UseMSRMaps=1".
Thanks,
Geoff

Odd.  Did you update to a new version, or just re-open as per usual?

I was in v5.48, changing the font size (Options>Preferences>Fonts), when I think it happened.  Have now upgraded to v5.51 and it still happens.  Also, tile selection (Options>Preferences>TileSets) does not maintain my selection of Topo or Aerial sets.

Hmm, I can think of any way the setting would get clobbered, but it's possible.

Is UseMSRMaps=1 under the correct section of the .INI file, which is just the general [Settings] but before any other bracketed sections?

I get the old tilesets with that in my .INI file so I can confirm it works on my machine at least.

That looks correct.  Do you get "Topo" and "Aerial" as a choice in the dropdown in the upper right of the main window?  I get those but I do see that it switches back to Landsat.

Hey Scott,  Any progress on resolving the switchback to the Landsat tiles?  I've got a trail grant deadline approaching and need to do some additional mapping... w/o access to the Aerial and Topo tiles its going to be a tough road!  Best, Geoff

Finally took a look at this and believe found the issue.  The checkboxes in Options should work now in Beta 5.54.

You may need to restart after enabling some of them, but then they should be accessible.

Hope it's useful even if the most recent deadline passed. 

Cheers

Great!  When will the beta be available for download?
