RE: How to see the object WT1190F guide 9?

Blair, Grant Nov 11, 2015

Never mind – I have it. You have to use GOTO….Asteroid, then enter WT1190F, for some reason.

 

At least, that works for me.

Same issue here. I even made sure there were no HTML formatting tags inside the DAT file….(there were, when I first saved it). Restarted Guide again, etc. Goto….Satellite does not find any of the objects listed in PROBES.DAT

 

Any other ideas?

Hi Clay,

I wish browsers were a little smarter about such things! (Of late,
I've taken to having all text files have extension .txt. But 'probes.dat'
existed before I started running into the problem.)

Try downloading this (same file, except with the name .txt instead of .dat) :

http://www.projectpluto.com/probes.txt

Then save it to your Guide folder, changing the '.txt' to '.dat' when
you do so. Should get you around the problem.
