Title: Alternative maps for Lightning 2000
Post by: meteolarissa on July 25, 2021, 01:49:51 PM
Good evening to all.

I would like to ask if we can use our own maps in Lightning 2000 in addition to those provided with the program.

I read somewhere that we can use .bmp but also .jpg but i see the program accepts only the original maps given with Lightning 2000 which is in .amf format

Thanks

Yes you can.
Click in top left corner of window
File
Click on Install map
Click Select what format
You should have the .bmp file saved in a known location
Select that file
That should be it.

Good evening to all.
I would like to ask if anyone has a map of Europe or the Balkans that contains Greece in .amf format so that they can send it to me by email because I have downloaded the Lightning 2000 program but I do not have a map of Greece and the surrounding area.
