    Thanks for this awesome app!
    When opening the app, I get a JS error, telling me it cannot find the logfile. I have a custom “Documents” location, so the Zwift logs are not located in C:\Users\Jeroen\Documents\Zwift\Logs\Log.txt. Not sure why it need log files anyway, it works fine once I click OK on the error message. I know in C# you can get the Documents location with: Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments); not sure for other languages, but assuming %USERPROFILE%/Documents is incorrect 🙂

    Is there a way to change the size of the map in this version?
    Thanks again for your awesome work!

      Your current position is read from the log file as Zwift writes it there. You will see the map but not your current position, then.

      I thought I had put in a proper logic for finding the log file but will have to take a further look at it. Thanks for reporting the problem.

    • jesper says:

      I hope the new version 0.2.0 from yesterday solves the problem with the error message and finding the log file.

    Great add-on to Zwift, Jesper! I’ve downloaded the Mac version, could start it and am seeing the map in the middle of my screen. What i can’t do is dragging it around as you described. cmd+alt+z does for some reason not work for me. I assume i can move the map also while seeing my desktop, but all it does when clicking on it (after the magic key combo) is changing to Finder in the menu bar at the top. Unfortunately there’s no indication if dragging is currently possible or not and there’s also no alternative mouse command. What am i doing wrong? I’m using Mac OS Sierra 10.12.2

    • jesper says:

      It sounds like you are doing the right thing. Why it doesn’t work is not clear, but perhaps there is a conflict in keyboard shortcuts or some problem registering the global keyboard shortcut.
      I think that I will add some visual indicator of the window state in the next version.

    • jesper says:

      Please download and try the new version 0.1.1.

    • Andy says:

      Try cmd+alt+y, this worked for me. Might be a keyboard mapping issue.

      • jesper says:

        Thanks for sharing. Which keyboard layout do you have?

        • Andy says:

          I have a Swiss keyboard with Swiss German language setting (QWERTZ).

          Really like the app and hope that you will make the other hacks available for Mac too…;-)

          • jesper says:

            Yeah, I can see there is a problem with the framework I am using when developing ZwiftMap. This means that the key combo is in fact Alt+Command+<whatever key is where Z is placed on a QWERTY keyboard>. I hope it gets fixed in the framework itself. There is not much I can do about it, but will add a menu item which does the same as the key combo.

            The key mapping works as it is supposed to on Windows PCs

    I’m having trouble with the download itself.. First try it downloaded only 18mb and then just finished.. wouldn’t open.. Next time it downloaded 27.5mb and then again just quit.. still, would not open.. Trying third time now.. download speeds seem really slow.. maybe getting swamped by all the hungry mac OS zwifters trying to download!…

    OK.. third time got to 32.8mb and then just stops.. (closes the window and writes the incomplete file to my download folder). I’ll try again tomorrow and see if I can get the whole 39mb.. 😉

    • jesper says:

      Please try again. Download worked fine for me just now.

      Regards,
      Jesper

        Thanks Jesper,

        So strange.. still not able to download it completely.. Never had this problem with files before and I”m a very fast internet but the download just goes for a bit, very slowly, then it stops.. it writes the file to disk like it’s finished but file size isn’t the full 39mb.. Today I can only get about 10mb before it stops..

    There is no Alt key on my Mac? Is it Control or option?

  7. Doug says:

    In the new version of ZwiftMap, is there a way to set up the position of the map (like the older version) so you don’t have to go through the process every time you open the app?

  8. Andrew Ballas says:

    Ive downloaded the Windows version but when i go to open it it says that the setup files are corrupted and to obtain a new copy of the program. i tried downloading the file again but having the same issue. any tips? im using windows 10

  9. Doug says:

    In a future version, it would be nice to be able to select the color of the map. I find it much easier to read the orange map in the older version of Zwiftmap, when it’s running on top of Zwift, than the white map in the new version.

    Is there a way to change the color of the map?

    • jesper says:

      Not in the current version but there will be a way to do it in the next version I release.

    • jesper says:

      The map is supposed to show in white but because of a mistake by me it has been showing in black instead since Wednesday (I guess). That would have made it very hard to see so. Maybe that was why you asked?
      The problem should be fixed now (it does NOT require you to download anything again).

      Regards,
      Jesper

    Great add-on to Zwift. Thanks for the hard work Jesper! Ride on!

    Great! Works flawless on my Macbook!
    Thx a lot!

    Hi Jesper – I downloaded the map overlay recently (for Windows 10) and it’s in a file on my computer, but it isn’t actually coming up on screen when I log in to Zwift. I’ve tried full screen & windowed mode. Do I need to move the file into the Zwift folder, or is there something else I’m not doing ? Thanks. (PS – I’m using Alienware Alpha console rather than a PC if that makes a difference)

    love the maps Jesper, thanks! tried the mlti version instead of the classic windows version but missing the “pretend it’s fullscreen option” if you know what I mean.
