    Q. Why should I use this plugin version in CF as opposed to the Standalone version?

    A. There is no reason why you shouldn't use the standalone version, however this version will have better intergration with your CentraFuse



    Q. I have put my country code in the ini but there is no cameras in the list?

    A. The initial download only comes with the UK database, after you have entered your country code in the ini, run the program and leave it running for at least 5 mins. If the skin you are using has the 'New Database' indicator on it, it should light up when a new database is downloaded, click on this indicator and it will load the new database. If the skin has no indicator, stop and restart the program. If the database is still not there it could be that my website is down, you are behind a firewall which has blocked the download or the program itself was updating.


    Q. Why is my country not supported?

    A. I have collected as many countries as I can where I can, either from searching or other users providing links, if you country is not supported it is either I haven't found a website with the cameras or if I have they are moving images which TC does not support at this time. Bear in mind if the site is not in English I may have trouble understanding it.


    Q. Why is my State/Town/City not supported?

    A. I have collected as many countries as I can where I can, either from searching or other users providing links, if your state/town/city is not supported it is either I haven't found a website with the cameras or if I have they are moving images which TC does not support at this time.


    Q. I have found a site for my Country/State/Town/City what do I need to do to get these added to the databases?

    A. If it is a new Country then firstly provide me with a link, if it is not in English you may have to harvest the info yourself. Please provide the info in the following format
    <url of camera>
    <Location of camera including town/state>
    <lat>
    <lon>
    NB the lat and lon need to be in decimal format and not Degrees Minutes, seconds. ie (34.4567,-23,9465)


    Q. How can I download this wonderful creation?
    A. Register on my forum at www.en4cer.co.uk/forum , when activated go to the downloads section.

    Q. I have registered on your site but am still not activated, why?
    A. I do not monitor the forum registrations 24/7 so it could take hours or possibly a day or two before I can activate you. If I am going away I will normally put this info into the news section of the forum. If however after a few days of registering you have not been activated then contact me via PM here. Using the same username as you do on here will help you get activated quicker.


    Q. Does this application only work with CentraFuse?

    A. Yes, this is a dedicated CentraFuse Plugin, However there is a standalone version available.


    Q. How do I change the size?

    A. The plugin will run at the same size as CentraFuse.


    Q. Can I use CFVisualDesigner to edit the skin?

    A. Yes.


    Q. How do I embed this is my skin?

    A. Follow the standard instructions for installing plugins in CentraFuse


    Q. Would someone care to send me this?

    A. The Terms And Conditions expressly forbid the distribution of this program, please register on my forum to get your copy.


    Q. Does this show redlight and speed cameras?

    A. No, this is only for traffic movement cameras, for speed cameras a red light cameras try Gatso Hunter.


    Q. Is the video live or updated? or mix?

    A. Currently this is only static image cameras, these get updated by the websites anything from every second to some which update every 20mins.


    Q. Does your plugin accepts video traffic cams?

    A. Not at present, this maybe something for the future, but at the moment this would probably take too much bandwith.


    Q. I would love to be able to add some custom images to the traffic cam app?

    A. At present this is not possible, but it is something I will look into


    Q. How do you pull coordinates for traffic cams?

    A. This can be very laborious.
    One method is to use google earth combined with the website the cameras are on and the Traffic Camera pictures.
    You will need to look at roughtly where they say it is (there is normally a map of sorts), look at the picture, zoom in on google earth until you can marry the picture image with what is seen in google earth and then read the co-ordinates. It also helps if you are fairly familiar with the area/country.
    Sometimes you are lucky and if you look at the source of the page with the map, it will sometimes provide the GPS coords in their somewhere, these can then just be copy and pasted into notepad.


    Q. Why do you need the GPS coords with the cameras?

    A. Two fold, one is to be able to see on a map where a camera is in the serach screen, help you decide if it is somewhere you go. And secondly I hope to add the ability to show cameras based on the position, so as you move it will always show the cameras nearest to you.


    Q. What is the current database version for my country? (Cameras with coords / total cameras)

    A.
    UK Database version=UK007 ( 1273 / 1612) 79%
    US Database version=US015 (1192 / 4985) 24%

    Updated US database now available US015


    This is mainly a cull and/or repair of non working cameras.

    Some of the removed ones will return at a later date, some will not.


    Some of the non working ones were the first ones in the database and also part of the not working caused the program to hang for quite a while, thus harming the performance of the plugin when going to the search screen. As these have been removed performance should be improved.

    Repaired ones

    Bellingham WA
    Boise ID
    Broward County FL
    Chicago IL
    JacksonVille FL
    Miami-Dade FL
    Milwaulkie
    Spokane WA
    Tampa Bay
    Twin Cities TN
    General Washington ones
    And quite a few from CT

    While the Dallas TX ones now have Coords they will need an updated plugin to work which I am currently working on.

    Some which have been removed

    El Paso - I could add these in as I have the urls, but they are gifs and really slow the plugin down.

    Tennessee- Knoxville
    Boston MA
    Pittsburgh PA - Although I think these were duplicated in the databse with the others working
    Ohio
    Detriot MI
    San Antonio TX
    North Carolina
    Lake Charles LA (plus other LA ones)


    As I said some the above (In fact most of the above, I hope) should be back in the future.

    Yes.

    But all Traffic Cams plugins and standalone app are going through a complete rewrite.

    The plan is for the core functions to be put into a trafficcams DLL and then the RR & CF plugins and the standalone EXE will reference the DLL.

    This will make it easier to create plugins for other FE's (hopefully)

    Is there a newer version available then? This version is not showing up for me in CF 3.6 with the Aqua 2.0 skin.

    Well this is only for CF2, so will not show up in CF3x.


    I have a 3.x version but am not happy with certain things at the moment, so have stepped away to work on other things so I can come back with a fresh mind to it.


    *Edit, also piece of advice, test all plugins in the Clean skin first, they will all be designed with a suitbale skin for it to work, whilst other skins may support the plugin it may not have all the screens/skin files required.
