OK.. so lesson learned .. new gaming PC does NOT mean latest and greatest DirectX

Installed / updated DirectX - fixed all my problems

Thanks!!!!

I think I've noted a slight error on the KM attack disc that's been there since it was originally made.

Looking at the speed ring on the ahistorical reverse side the location of the long mark to indicate 3.2 knots appears to be inaccurately scrunched up only 2 marks from 3.1 knots. Looking back at old copies of the printable disk shows the same discrepency, and you can see it in the images for the original Angriffsscheibe Handbuch from 2008.

I assume its an error since it doesn't seem in proportion to the rest of the log scale. Is it worth anyone's time to fix this? I dunno. :P

I am hazarding a guess that this is an intended feature . It is in fact the 3.14 mark. And you could use this as the number pi in some calculations. It is replicated on both distance and speed scales.

That is interesting and makes sense. Two thoughts. One, I think it would make more sense to include such a feature as a specially coloured mark to make it easier to scan past it when not used (and find it when desired). Two, on the meters scale it appears that the mark is additional to the 3100 and 3200 marks while on the knots scale the 3.2 knot mark is not emphasized and is level with the other lower marks.

I think the omission of the higher 3.2 mark is unintentional since there is no omission on the meters scale.

The 3.2 nautical mile mark is slightly higher than the small digit ones on my physical printed attackdisk. I think it was drawn with a purpose.

When I look closely at the print version yes I see it, but that subtle indicator doesn't appear to be on the Solution Solver version of it.

I think the fact that it was overlooked when the wheel was redone demonstrates the less than ideal way that's been indicated.

Default Very Impressive, Thank you

Great stuff mate, works like a charm. My lines where not perfect but they showed up within 100 yards from 9.4nm starting distance. I used the sonar tracking PDF.

Superb. Highly recommended. 10/10 Kindest regards Paul.
