Setting map projection on the Mac

One of the functions of JaVaWa GMTK and JaVaWa Device Manager is to adjust the projection angle of a map. However, both programs are 32-bit and therefore will not run on MacOS Catalina or newer. Users of those systems can no longer adjust the map projection angle. With the "SetProjectionAngle" program that can be downloaded below, this problem can be solved.
It requires some manual work, because you first have to find the correct parameters yourself. The procedures are different for maps installed on your Mac (gmap format) and for maps installed on your device (img format).

The projection angle can be reset by entering the value -1.

Note: SetProjectionAngle needs to be authorised to send Apple events to System Events. It will be asked when you run the program the first time. In case you clicked "No", open "System Preferences" > "Security & Privacy" > "Privacy". Select "Automation" and put a check before "System events" under "SetProjectionAngle".

SetProjectionAngle is a 64-bit program.
