  • On 1st and subsequent boots after install the following message:"File or assembly name Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3DX, or one of its dependencies, was not found." (but WW1.2e works fine) SOLVED BY INSTALLING PATCH FOR 1.3a
  • Maximizing the WW window by double-clicking its title bar often triggers a button click
  • When maximizing the WW window, the spot a user is looking at (window center) should be preserved.
  • Resize cursor (e.g. <->) of tool windows (e.g. Place Finder) does not appear (flickers only briefly)
  • Does not piggyback and use IE's proxy settings.. can still not be used behind an authenticated proxy [SF: never said it would, so not a bug, but we're working on it]
  • Response to mouse movement much less responsive and jerkier than in 1.2e
  • DX Issue mainly I think. Launched NetMeeting then 1.3, screen went plack for about 10 seconds. Came back on with a message: "Could not find compatable video card" I think the video requirements are too much pull on the system to run both.
  • The top menu bar doesn't reflect changes made with the LayerManager
  • The top menu bar toggles layers instead of switching them
  • Most layers don't have download indicator icons
  • I get texture jitter and placename jitter when zooming in close. I have turned off Temporal Anti-Aliasing, normal AA is at 2x oversampling. I can fix it most of the time by clicking once to make sure motion is stopped. (ah)
  • The SRTM data seems to be way off in most regions of the world [CM: Eastern hemisphere...fixing]


  • Toolbar is shown when you save screenshot, shouldn't be :( [CM:Fixed]
    • How to reproduce this bug? [mashi]
  • Layer manager under 'Tools' brings up the old style layer manager [CM:Fixed]
  • The red frame around a tile being downloaded should stay on-screen until the tile is updated, not disappear before [CM:Fixed]
  • Download indicator seems gone [CM:Fixed]
  • Text such as position and wms messages appear on top of the menubar [CM:Fixed]
  • After the right mouse button is pressed and the camera is tilted the menubar doesnt highlight again until you left click [CM:Fixed]
  • how engmike broke worldwind Llynix fixed it, DirectX problems (And then he really fixed it :)
  • Toolbar cannot be moved or turned on or off [CM:Fixed]
  • Rapid Fire Modis doesn't "hide" when using ToolBar to close dialog [CM:Fixed]
  • Motion momentum seems always on [mashi:Fixed]
  • Most tool windows have the default VS.Net icon [mashi:Fixed]
  • The planet gravity item in the view menu does not get ticked when it is selected [mashi:Fixed]
  • No icons are displayed for add-ons [TS: I could get the NWS NEXTRAD icon to show][CM:Fixed]
    • Frustum problem, if you tilt at the right altitude they appear [mashi]
    • Could import an add-on, but could not get the images releated to the add-on to load (moved the releated imaged into the add-ons folder and did edit the xml to look there for the images)
  • The 'toggle position information' menu button does nothing? [CM:Fixed]
  • Icons in add-ons now show but vanish at certain angles, also they are always on-scrren they do not vanish behind the planet [CM:Fixed]
