Main battery range on mini map

For awhile I had a circle on the mini map that showed the range of my main battery.  Now, all I have are my detection range and torpedo range on boats with torps.  I can't figure out how to enable the main battery range circle.   Anyone know?

When in battle, the little gears at the top right of the map, click 'em and you can pick AA range,spotting ranges, main and secondary battery ranges. Do it before the battle, you have to do it for each ship now I believe since this patch.

There is no checkbox next to the main battery range.  There is a checkbox next to the torp range.  So it must be done somewhere else.

Hold down the CTRL key when you click the gear - and continue holding it down as you select the options. Everything works fine for me.

Holding down the cntrl key is how you get to the check boxes in the minimap settings, i get that.  there is no check box next to my main battery firing range as there is for the secondary firing range and at sea detectability, etc.  You'll notice on Dasha's minimap that the torpedo range and main battery range do not have check boxes, even though there are checks next to them.  On my minimap there is no check next to the main battery range and there is a check box next to the torpedo range.  This parameter is not modifiable from the minimap as the torp range circle cannot be disabled from the minimap.  So, how do I get my main battery range circle back?

The option is not available in the minimap settings. If you lost it, you have to manually edit your preferences.xml to get it back. Find <mgRangeEnabled> and set the flag to true

 

If you can't find <mgRangeEnabled>, you can add it under <minimapOptions>

 

Example:

        <minimapOptions>
            <visibilityRangeEnabled>    true    </visibilityRangeEnabled>
            <mgRangeEnabled>    true    </mgRangeEnabled>
            <taRangeEnabled>    true    </taRangeEnabled>
            <lastVisEnabled>    true    </lastVisEnabled>
        </minimapOptions>

            <lastVisEnabled>    true    </lastVisEnabled>
        </minimapOptions>

 

As they'd say in India, Thumbs Up! Great job amade.

 

And I posted before your response of not having the checkbox appeared to me.
