Subject: slightly updated patch kit for 24Ea Sent: Friday, March 22, 2002 8:19:16 From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Richard Seymour) This (patch24a4a.zip) is a slightly revised version of my patch kit for v24eA. The -patch- is exactly the same as was released on 3/19/2002. What has changed is the installation method. No more drag-and-drop. The update handle the fact that Meade has changed their file name from "build.rom" to "Build24ea.rom" And it's also easier to apply... It provides Training-data display and editing, a Utility for setting the Maximum Elevation a GoTo will attempt, Satellite AOS times displayed to the second, control over the lowest Satellite AOS elevation, optional automatic satellite-pass start, optional Cord Wrap control for hard-stopped scopes, and (last but not least) adds the 4504/114eq-dh4 as known models. Full patching utilities and instructions in the package. Basically: unzip it, put everything into Program Files/Meade/ASU/Ephemerides have v24eA innocently sitting there as "build24ea.rom" Then double-click on the CLICK_ME.bat file. <<--- NEW The patch will happen. Then download the changed build24ea.rom file to your Autostar. Your original build24ea.rom will remain untouched, but renamed to build24ea.rom_bak, and will still be seen by ASU v3.33 in its drop-down Local File list. The patch creates 24a4 (instead of 24Ea), so you can locate it. Enjoy ---dick
