only get a blank screen when I use those links so used my usual source. ;-)

That’s odd. Maybe your wifi speed, give it one or two seconds.

on my PC so no issues with the WiFi ;-)

Zoom it out once and it should appear on if charts 😉

What @The_Gaming_Guy said should work well for you. If it doesn’t, could you post that on the IF-Charts thread?

Sorry for hajacking this thread!

nothing…poss a spam filter (work computer), will try later when at home! Either way people have lots of options to use the correct charts!
