Element Manager V 1.1.6 is now available at:


There was NO public release of version 1.1.5 so you're not missing much

Version 1.1.6 adds a very simple satellite tracking screen. By selecting
Track View (from various locations within the program) the currently
selected satellite is displayed at its current location on a world map.

IMPORTANT: Starting with version 1.1.6, Element Manager is being compiled
with Visual Basic 6.0 so, you'll need the current crop of run time files.
They are listed on the download page for Element Manager along with links to
Microsoft if you don't have them installed yet.

The tracking module contains copyrighted code by J.R. Miller from his
program PLAN13.BAS. I've been working on this module since December (on and
off) and only recently become totally satisfied with it. Mr. Miller has
given his permission to include sections of his code in the program. I've
been pretty tough on those original algorithms bending them into shape to do
what I want, so if there are any wild tracking anomalies, lay them at my
door not Mr. Miller's. I probably introduced something strange. However,
that said, the program has been behaving for several months now. Just some
other code I had to develop myself has been holding me back, so I don't
think tracking should turn up any problems.
