Wanderreitkarte no longer useable
« on: June 10, 2018, 17:15:11 »
Dear all,
I love Locus and use it (pro version) almost exclusively with Nops Wanderreitkarte. Every half year or so I download tiles and refresh older ones via Locus - up to the limit that I see in Locus. Obviously NOP is unhappy with Locus users:

"Leider wurden in letzter Zeit zunehmend Massendownloads mit der App Locus registriert, die weit über die verträglichen Mengen hinausgehen. Eigentlich sollte Locus so etwas gemäß Vereinbarung gar nicht zulassen. Da die Entwickler von Locus auf mehrere Kontaktversuche nicht reagiert haben, mußte ich die Notbremse ziehen: Der Server blockt Locus jetzt wie jeden anderen unbegrenzten Massendownloader. "

Could you please please try to solve this issue wit NOP?
I guess that I am not the only NOP-addict here, but a search in this forum did not show up any posts regarding this recent problem.

Best regards,
MissSofie

Hi,
I'm sorry for troubles. It's quite sad because I already sent two emails to Nop but I don't have any response from him. We use limits in Locus Map to avoid bulk downloading. It seems that the Nop's blocking mechanism is more restrictive but it's complicated to tune it without communication with him. Could I ask you:
- how many tiles did you downloaded before the blocking mechanism appears?
- is the block unlocked after 24 hours?

 I'd like to offer some solution but the best one is probably do not use Wanderreit map - for example LoMaps are generated from the same data.
If is the wanderreit vital for you it's possible to purchase unlock key at https://www.wanderreitkarte.de/shop_abo_de.php (purchased key can be used in Locus)

Thank you
Petr

It says on his website that he is taking some time off from the 23rd of April until the 24th June. Maybe that´s why you can´t reach him?

When I started this thread, I had encountered "access blocked" without having downloaded anything in the previous days. That´s why I was so shocked and interpreted the hint on Nops page as "the map in lo longer useable, online and offline".
Now it seems that it is still available online - maybe I had a cache bug.
Yesterday, I even downloaded 109 tiles via Locus.
Then, after moving around the map a little, "access" blocked" appeared again. Today the online map is available again. I won´t download anything.

Other maps are ok, I use them for comparison/double-checking, but they don´t show the official trail markings - this feels a little like suggesting "get a cat" to a dog owner... ;)
I will get the unlock key.

I'd like to mention that we're in touch with nop from yesterday. We'll try to find out why are users blocked after loading 100 tiles. Maybe is problem in Locus maybe is in  the Nop's blocking mechanism.

BTW: please upgrade on the latest 3.31.1 where is new internal counter for wanderreit map.
