Re: NET maps

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you!
Basically, it is a module that should not really be available. The README in the module says:

---

Image files you find in this module are boilerplate
placeholders, solely to direct you here, for how to
get real images yourself.

As last known, map images can be found here:
http://www.bible.org/page.php?page_id=2055
Surf/save them all in subdirectory "images",
replacing files as they are present initially.

---

So you need to create the module yourself, and this is something you would need to do on your computer and then transfer the module manually across to your iPad...

Again, why this module is "available" when it is initially broken is beyond me! Perhaps ask the Xiphos guys and they can help you?

Sorry about that...

Re: NET maps

NETmaps is available like that ("initially broken") because I never anticipated, 6+ years ago, that a Sword app environment would ever come into existence where the user would be unable to go into the directory where module content is stored and just replace content there. iPhone/iPad is such a sterile environment that this is not possible.

The maps themselves are bible.org's, and not content that I have any business redistributing. So I created the module with boilerplate images that show the user how to deal with it...except that the explanation is not useful in the iPhone/iPad universe. On any other platform, it's not a big deal: You surf the URL offered, you pick up image files, you copy those replacement image files into the images directory where the boilerplate image files already are. *Poof* You've got a fully-functional NETmaps module.

As it is, for iPhone/iPad, yes, you've got to get the module onto a real computer, tear it open manually, get the images, replace them in the module content, re-construct the result, and move it in "module maintainer mode" to the device. Yeah, that's a pain, and utterly impractical for Apple users. No, I have no plans to try to make it easier for Apple users.
