    I guess you have entered your Owner ID, 1723058, in the "Owned by (ID)" field ?

    ask if he can add an option to use the summary files - all of the original names are stored there POIL will not accept the names (the dreaded invalid file msg) with special characters etc that is why the macro must rename them. I don't see any way around that. Here is Keiths answer to your request: The summary file only contains the waypoints without spoilers. I suggest that the script is modified to copy the spoilers to another folder before renaming them. Spoiler Sync can continue to work on the original folder, with the script able to do what it likes in the copy folder. Regards Keith

    I'm seeing the same thing...and I think yes, it should not be rechecking if the recheck flag is not set.....not my program I have now tested alot, together with Keith, the developer of Spoiler Sync, and from what I can see now, the problem is related to the renaming of the jpg's, that takes place when GPX files are created when using the macro. An example is, when GC1F7ZY - SPOILER.jpg is renamed GC1F7ZY.0.jpg When running Spoiler Sync alone, when the jpg file names are not changed, everything works as it should. I have a small test database with only 9 caches, where it is easy to see what happens. I can send it to you by e-mail if you need it for test.

    OK, I have sent an e-mail to the Spoiler Sync feedback mailbox.

    Thanks, I may be tired after watching the whole Olympic opening seremony but in what window, macro, program is this ? I checked User Flag only in the SpolierSyncMacro Capture window. Probably the wrong place... Edit: Found it in GSAK User Flags. I still have the problem that SpoilerSync takes very long time, and from what I can see, it is still downloading almost all spoilers every time I run the macro with SpoilerSync checked. I can see that these files are generated, "no spoiler found.txt", "spoiler.txt" and "Description List.txt". I can also see that "no spoiler found.txt" is deleted when the SpoilerSync program is started, "spoilers.txt" is updated when "Create GPX Files" is selected, and "Description List.txt" is updated when the macro starts to resize the spoiler pictures. Is the SpoilerSync ment to use the "no spoilers found.txt" and "spoilers.txt" in a way that only spoilers from new caches added, are downloaded ?

    After upgrading to 5.0 I get "Transparent.bmp not found" both with and without "Diasables built-in icons" checked. EDIT: OK after restarting GSAK

    The macro has to rename the SS files. The SS filenames are not acceptable to POI Loader and it crashes when I try to use them. Many have special characters which POI Loader detests. SS is matching filenames so yes it will recreate the files IF you run the GPX macro in-between. Work around: Check "set user flag" and "clear all user flags first?" on the ZIP download screen when loading your PQs. I have added an option in the macro to only check for spoilers on the updated records (User Flag checked). That way you can control what records SS has access to since you have a mega dataset. Upgrade to ver 1.5 to enable this feature. First of all, I have upgraded to 4.9.1 and Spoiler macro 1.5, and it works fine, and the Goepic is great. I have checked "set user flag", but I do not find a place to check "clear all user flags first?". Where to look ?

    I do not control the speed at which SpoilerSync runs. That is determined by your IP speed and traffic. 1) You should update to the latest version. The logic is evolving quickly. 2) Make sure "Create a summary file" is checked. 3) Yes the macro HAS to rename the files. POI Loader is VERY FUSSY about EVERYTHING!! 4) NO images are being deleted. 5) Image "0" will load to the GPSr with the cache page (depending on model) 6) The rest will be loaded optionally as child waypoints [eventually] 1. I check for updates every day 2. That one was unchecked, but I have been running the macro and SpoilerSync 3 times today (on the same unchanged database), but no difference. If I do not remember wrong, earlier I could read "spoiler already downloaded" (or something like that in the SpoilerSync progress window, but since one or two updates ago, I see only "no spoiler found", "1 spoilers", "2 spoilers" and so. When looking in the Spoiler folder, I can see that most spoilers are downloaded again. Just when i was to push the "Add Reply" on this post, I could see a few "spoilers already downloded" in the SpoilerSync window. I'm a bit confused

    GC1A5PC.jpg can be deleted the macro won't use it, probably a left over from a previous version. The macro now numbers the spoilers starting with <GC code>.0.jpg Any file from SpoilerSync with "spoiler" in the name gets preference and is assigned #0, the first (and now only) picture to be loaded with the POI. All of the remaining spoilers are numbered sequentially <GC code>.1.jpg, <GC code>.2.jpg, etc. It was reported that the Nuvi 7xx refused to display any image when multiples were loaded via POI Loader so I disabled that feature for now. I'm going to post some sample POI's on the beta test page with multiples so others can check to see how their unit responds. I'll post a link when I get that done. The macro resizes any picture whose width exceeds the GPSr's screen width. It does not enlarge the smaller pics (although it could). This was done due to a report that images > ~150K would not display. Running SpoilerSync takes alot longer time than before (hours on my 8500 caches database), and it looks like most, if not all, spoiler pictures are downloaded again even that I have set up SpoilerSync and the macro to only check for and download spoilers for new caches in the database. It looks like all spoilers, including multiples, are stored in the POI_Loader/"database" folder when SpoilerSync is running, but when returning to the macro, most, but not all, multiples have been deleted, and most of the remaining jpg's (with todays date/time) has been renamed with an 0 in front of jpg. jpg's without the 0, has the spoilername after the GC code, and date/time is last time I did run SpoilerSync (that also took hours)

    I can still not find a way to view the spoiler images on the Oregon. On the 760, I can see 1 image for each of the 3 caches. Davis Farm: A woman with a dog in the forrest 88 Spaces: Looks like 1/3 of an old painting. The back of a half nude lady Upper Buttermilk: Trees, grass and a small river in the background.

    The "Image" button is not available on POIs with multiple spoilers on my Nuvi 760. Also, testet on at least 25 POIs, there is (no longer ?) an "Image" button on POIs with single spoiler when the jpg filesize is larger than apx 150 kB..

    Done. When "disable built-in" is UNchecked, I have to stop and restart GSAK, else the "bmp not found" messages is still there. I then made sure that all my 24x24 bmp filenames is the same as the built-In, and I replaced the files in the TourGuide_Tools folder. I then checked the "disable built-In", and started the macro again. I still gets the bmp nor found messages. I also tried to restart GSAK, but in this case it makes no difference..

    Did you get it working? No need to manually copy any of the files supplied w/ the macro. Should be automatic. No, as soon as I choose "Disable Built-In Icons" I get the bmp not found messages. Is it so that when Built-In Icons is disabled, the macro looks for and uses the icon bmp's in the TourGuide_Tools folder ?. If yes, I guess the filenames is important ? As an example, I get not found on Reference_Point.bmp

    Since a few versions back, a CMD window has started to flash and moving down-right during the "Preparing Spoiler Picture" phase. When reaching picture #1900, the window is closed, and CMD is only blinking on the taskbar, as before. When the CMD window is flashing, it is very difficult to work on the PC.

    I have just tested the Colorado.gpi on the Oregon 300, but I find no way to display an image from any of the 3 POIs included in the gpi.

    I have copied the icon bmp's into theGSAK/TourGuide_Tools folder, but the macro reports that the bmp's are not found. There is no other files in this folder either. Should all the files that earlier was copied into the Temp folder now be copied to the TourGuide_Tools folder ?

    Advanced Nuvi Macro

    Please search your computer for TourGuideTools.zip and let me know where you find it (path). Thanks. I have run the whole sequence, and the Temp folder gets empty when GSAK is restarted. As soon as the macro is started, the Temp is populated with all the jpg, bmp, mp3, sox.exe and TourGuideTools.zip

    The macro creates and never deletes any files in the gsak\Temp folder. Let's test this on your machine: 1) delete the .bmp, .mp3 or .wav and .zip from gsak\Temp. 2) run the macro with the use custom icons deselected. The macro should recreate the files you deleted. 3) Repeat step 1 4) run the macro with the use custom icons selected. The macro should give you errors about the missing files. (If your custom files were there it would proceed without error) 5) Repeat step 2 6) Replace the icons in ..gsak\Temp with your custom symbols named the same 7) Repeat step 4 This should be working.....at least it does on my machine. If gsak\Temp is getting deleted is there another macro that you are using that is doing that? Currently, there is nothing in the Temp folder except the file SplitScreen.htm, and the subfolders SpoilerSync, waypoints and zip. I will test more later.
