Default [REL] Solution Solver 2.3

See Post #2 for videos.





What's New?

+ Position Keeper integrated into the main intercept wheel.

+ Determining target course and speed from two bearing/range readings integrated into the main intercept wheel. Can be done in real-time mode or with a specific time interval.

+ New "Periscope Solver" tool designed with Wolfpack in mind.

+ Both sides of the german attack disc seen in many Silent Hunter mods now included. Click the center of the Dial to flip it over.

+ Various internal improvements.

Download:

Requirements:
A graphics card that is not a potato.

Since this is a .NET app written in C#, i used some Managed components of DirectX to render the dials for speed. Not all DirectX installers come with those components. So you may or may not need to run the full directX web installer to get them if they are missing from your system.

DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer

If you enjoyed the program and would like to buy me a beer (or two) for the countless hours that went into making it:

Thank you very much for all the work you've done.


By the way, for those who claimed that the last version was a Trojan,
here's the 2.3 Virus Total scan result

Small update.

Increased the horizontal ticks on the periscope solver from 20 to 30. Ran into an issue last night in Wolfpack where i ran out of horizontal ticks

version is now 2.3.1.

Gutted, can you shrink the area around the (attack-)disks where you can grab it to turn? For example, I can grab the time disk within the 'small marks'-space of the adjacent distance scale. You have some kind of shadowy border there. This screws up turnradius calculations for me.

[Edit] and an optional feature, please. A free pointer across time to angle sine scale.
