While browsing through the OR directory I found 6844KB worth of a contributed activity editor. The program started right up and I wanted to create an activity for the Strasburg route as I described in another post. Under "Load Activity" I chose, OR\routes\Strasburg\activities, and was met with,"no items match your search". File types was set to .act .json. Is this AE simply not working yet? I've never seen it(OR AE) mentioned in any of my searching for editors.

Darn good question, hope someone can come up with an answer.

AFAIK, the OR activity editor is not functional. Many OR users are switching to using the Trackviewer for making paths -- works good -- and then using the AE component of Goku's TSRE for activity creation.

I know this is a slight bit http://www.elvastower.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/offtopic.gif, but then again, it might not be http://www.elvastower.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/pleasantry.gif

How do you use (IE, start) the AE in TSRE?

I recall reading about it somewhere but I seem to have forgotten to save that "somewhere" to a bookmark for later and Google didn't help me on that either right now...

Cheers, Markus


EDIT: Found it again, lost that bookmark in my recent browser move.

Hi Gerry,

Me and my family re all fine, thanks. And it definitely feels good to be around again :)

Thanks for the pointers, found it but didn't yet have the time to try it.

Cheers, Markus
