Hi Carsten,

I get an error message that I have to include the WGS coordinates in Dream.ini like you say above.

This is the original dream.ini:
latitude=47.41435 N
longitude=8.07515 E

Then the modified dream.ini:

Both cause the "Invalid Coordinates" error message in DRMCalc.

My DRMCalc Folder is a folder in the folder DRM, where Dream is. Somehow I cannot locate the problem. Could you help me out?

Best regards,

As far as I understand it, DRMcalc now takes the information from Dream's log file. If the Dream.ini contains the coordinates, the logfile will also contain them and DRMcalc can then make use of them. This is the way initially intended for logs from the DRMSW.
A long time ago, Dream could not yet write this data into its logfile, so Carsten solved this problem in such a way that the coordinates could be put into DRMcalc's configuration data. Since Dream can also store the coordinates in the logfile for a long time now, there is no real reason anymore to use that method.

Hi Terje,

Roland is right. DRMcalc only reads the coordinates from the log file.

I have no problems with coordinates from Dream. I attached the logfile section from my dream.ini to see what format has to be used.

Maybe your Dream version is too old. Please send me a dream log file, so I can check this.

Dream 1.2.4

Hi Carsten,

Hm, I thought about that also. But the lat and long is in the .ini file. I'm happy with Dream 1.2.4 but I also have 1.3 and 1.5.

The latter spooked on me and shut down during the night ruining my logging on 3.x MHz so I switched back to 1.2.4.

I'll look into it - which version do you use?

Tks and bst regards,

Hi Terje,

this is the wrong format. Please edit your dream.ini again and make sure, that dream is NOT running while you edit it. Otherwise it will be overwritten with the old values if you close Dream after.

Dream does not convert these coordinates. It writes it one to one from dream.ini into the log file.

Sorry, but minimum resolution will stay at 1024x768. I see no chance to make it scalable.

Because I got more questions about the correct coordinates format in the dream.ini and maybe there could a problem with different ascii codes in different countries, I attached a screenshot with an example how the format of the WGS84 coordinates in degree and minute should look like. Please use W or S if you live in the southern or western hemisphere.
Close Dream before you edit dream.ini!!!

Perhaps it is just me, but I have tried just about everything, and I still get the error. Not sure what to do next!

A suggestion (if you haven't already done that): delete dream.ini, run dream, close dream, edit dream.ini, save it, run dream again and close it again, check dream.ini for your entries...
Hope this help.

Good work

Some nice changes, very good. But unfortunately, the remarks I enter can only be deleted all at once. When you for instance enter a third comment and find an error after you pressed "OK", you must delete all entries and write them all over again. Or am I wrong?

Best regards,
