I have two monitors running on my rig, and for several reasons im running ARMA2 CO in windowed mode, but still maxed out in resolution so that the window fills my #1 monitor.
I have long though about how nice it could be to have a map on monitor #2 while I was playing arma so this is the primary reason for making these, and why not share them with the rest of you.
I could use photoshop (or even paint) and paint my tactics, routes and whatever I wanted while in a mission without Arma would minimize and without going totally blind from whats happening in game while looking at the map. Great opportunity for those of us who have more than one monitor.
For those with only one monitor at hand it would actually still be pretty awesome I think. Running Arma in windowed mode (but still "fullscreen") and the map in the background (also windowed mode but maybe only 1/4 size of screen) so that you could still see some of arma in the bagground while tabbed out.
Sattelite image on the maps will vary from allmost no sattelite and only details, to both details and sattelites. It all depends on the map's settings and zoom levels.
If you have any requests, ideas to make them better or anything feel free to speak.
