More 2.0 Observations

When in the full screen mode you can right click and select 'ShowToolBar'.

This gives a nice tool bar that has a full screen close button (something I have mentioned wanting in earlier posts). I was excited to find this option, but have two concerns:

1 - It isn't easy to modify the skin (at leas I do think it is) you have to go to C:\Program Files\Easypano\Tourweaver 2.00 Professional Edition\resource\fullbarskin and alter the images.

2 - This bar is not displayed by default. Therefore, the close button is nice but not as intuitive as I would like.

Has anyone figured out a way to have full screen mode pop up with the bar displayed by default? Or an easy way to change the bar skin from within the program?

Here is what I found.

If you look in the publish settings, under the html tab, there is a check box for Initial Full Screen and Show Toolbar. Check them both and publish. This make the toolbar show in the full screen mode version. Then you can uncheck Initial Full Screen and publish again, this brings the tour back to normal view initally but the Toolbar in Full screen mode stays.

I believe Smooth said this may be a bug... It might not be intened to work this way? The solution does seem kind of like a work around if you think about it.  Hopefully when we get out of Beta they will make the full screen features a little better, more user friendly, and controlable.

Thanks Roadkill,

That was what I was looking for. Anyone know if am I right to assume that you would need to alter the full tool bar skin via C:\Program Files\Easypano\Tourweaver 2.00 Professional Edition\resource\fullbarskin or is there another way.

Thanks!

I have not found another way yet, I changed the color on the three background images in C:\Program Files\Easypano\Tourweaver 2.00 Professional Edition\resource\fullbarskin, It did work, but this will stick for all skins - (be careful editing things in program files!)

They did such a good job with color manegement in the new version, maybe they could give us two color choosing boxes to make the full screen toolbar match our site.

By the way... in the screenshot above, anybody know why the java applet window is so big on the bottom, its cutting off the viewer window. It did this before I recolored the images too :)

Morten,

In Beta 2.0 I tried publishing to my Win 2003 hosting account, to preview the tour off the server instead of locally, cant get it to work. I suspect MIME type .vt not associated with anything??? Does it work for anyone else?

I published to an Apache hosting account, it works fine from here. There are new features from TW 2.0 in this tour, but I didnt get a chance to make a second map and work with the multiple map function yet. The url is:

EasyPano has samples published as well,

Roadkill,

Because Win 2003 can not recognize .vt files, you need to change some settings in the server. This problem is similar with the .jp1 problem in Tourweaver 1.30. You can refer to this page: http://www.easypano.com/showkb_50.html, and change the corresponding place of extention to "vt" instead of "jp1".

Hope this can solve your problem.

When I view the TW2 samples in Firefox, I see even less of the toolbar for the full screen pano than in IE6 - In firefox I can the the top of the toolbar, but not any of the buttons. Anyone else using any other browsers to report results to easypano?

I am excited about the new option in the help menu to 'check for updates' - I hope this means that after the final release that if another bug is found that they will fix it and offer the update! Or maybe in a few months easypano will give in to our requests for flash output and release an update for that!

Our programmers are working on the problem of full screen window size. This will hopefully be solved in the final version.

We will develop the version that enables flash output soon after this 2.0 version is finally released.

This solution worked on one win box but not the other?

Log file from broken one is:

GET /tour/com/easypano/tourweaver/e/http:/www.360-vr-tour.com/tour/Scene/Crawfish+Town+USA.vt - 80 - XXX.XXX.XXX.XXXHTTP/1.1 Mozilla/4.0+(Windows+XP+5.1)+Java/1.5.0_10 - - www.360-vr-tour.com 404 0 2 1256 280 250  

Where is this "/tour/com/easypano/tourweaver/e/' coming from???
