Release EDDiscovery - Journals, Exploration, Trading, Voice Recognition/Speech, Star Maps, Webserver

Please open one of your recent journals from that commander from shell:savedgames\Frontier Developments\Elite Dangerous in a text editor, and compare the "Name":"<commandername>" in the "event":"Commander" line to your EDSM commander name.
 
@Zven Tveskoeg:
I had a similar problem. I was trying to load log files into EDSM for a period when I was being secretive about my movements. Got a similar error message.
Turned out that I was trying to load the logfiles for the wrong commander-I have two accounts. 🤓
 
Thanks a lot for your fast answers!

I've already did that, my name is without spacebar in EDSM (ZvenTveskoeg) and with one in my journal log (Zven Tveskoeg). But before the "bug", my name was already unchanged and with a spacebar on netlog. And all was fine. So I've tried to change it and put the same on journal log manually, load to EDSM, and it's ok. And so why before it was fine without this solution? Should I have to change all my journal manually before load them?? Did you think that?

Well, I went to discovered that some older netlog haven't load on EDDiscovery and so haven't synchronise in EDSM. A screenshot is better to explain my confusion... Left side haven't load and right has load... It's the same name !

EDIT: And so if it's load on EDDiscovery, it's also load on EDSM. With this name >< So many confusion in my head...

I see ! But it's not my issue, I've just one account =S. Problem is that EDSM doesn't accept spacebar between words and I've already create my account to Elite, sure of that. I've discovered those tools after starting playing ><. And then download EDDiscovery to synchronise all of this! Until...

There are many commanders on EDSM (myself included) that do have a space in their name.
If you go to the settings page on EDSM (https://www.edsm.net/en/settings), are you able to change your commander name to have a space?
 
........... - update ran fine after just using the add/remove programs from control panel to uninstall previous version.

Really??? I've tried to change it so many times! How is it possible... It says me again "This commander name (Zven Tveskoeg) is not available. "

@robbyp Thank you but my issue is more complicate than the beginning of the installation ^^'

@Para Handy Hahaha I like your pics :p
 
Yes, that’s what I was implying. Sounds like Zven is trying to log in to an account name that already exists. It may be that it is his account but there is something preventing him being recognised. Password problem??
 
There may already be a Zven Tveskoeg registered. Search for him.
Mmmm is it possible to search someone on EDSM? Haven't found it since so many time.. Think it was just possible to send between two people a link account.

Are you on PC or console?
If PC did you set up the account with a different machine so there is an IP issue?
I'm on PC, yeah sorry to haven't precise it before! And no, just one PC here =/ Password, I don't think so because I'm on log in always fine.

Your best bet for EDSM help is their discord

Spaces in commander names aren't inherently a problem, mine has one and it does on EDSM too.
 
Same here (space in name)
I think this issue has cropped up before in this thread, or something very similar. Might be worth a search through it with some keywords before trying the Discord.
 
Ok guys, you have reason! My really bad bad bad mistake, I've created double account for a long time now and I don't remember it... Now I just have to gathered all informations discovered from one to put on the other, hope it did it fine! And thanks to Anthor who help me! God of EDSM =P
Thanks at all!
 
The game gives us XYZ, RA and dec would have to be calculated and nobody's written that code (unless it slipped in when I wasn't looking)
EDSM now does that calculation but spot-checking a few well-known stars makes me think they might have got the transformation a little bit off (assuming of course that it is meant to be Epoch 2000).
