Now updated to work with the Journal files as of Elite: Dangerous 2.2 / 1.7
Current version - 1.5.6
Feel free to give it a go so grab the zip file and run the .exe in it. No installer needed.
Now includes overlay to show required heading and distance to a target you specify
- Specify the full path to the screen shot directory (for me it's C:\Users\John\Pictures\Frontier Developments\Elite Dangerous).
Do the same for videos if wanted
Tell it where to save the new image / video (will default to same directory as the source)
Specify the full path to the Journal files
Choose the file type and the name format (there's a small help screen for the expressions it knows)
Confirm if you want to delete the original file(s).
Specify if you want any other applications launched.
Play with the other settings that you fancy.
Launch the game.
It's written with VS Community 2015 in VB.net. Any thoughts, enhancements and bugs let me know but please keep in mind I'm not a coder by trade
