Phil_FR, I asked to have that post deleted two days ago but still there. Maybe you have to do it. Just click on the the little red triangle called Report in lower left corner.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

If you need charts for the western Caribbean, I have created a lot of charts using GE2KAP. Attached is an example for Trindad Cuba. Here is the link:

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Valhalla and I discovered a problem if OpenCPN is using OpenGL and you create charts that have the same names as existing charts. So I would suggest you not use OpenCPN with OpenGL.

But I have decided to upload a new version of GE2KAP V20.0.0.12 to fix a few small problems, see the Changelog.

You can of course get it from my website: GDAYII


I am off sailing in Mexico for a few weeks so may not be available.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Paul...
Could you guys please report the bug in OpenCPN's tracker with some understandable description of the erroneous behavior so that we can fix it?

Thanks

Pavel

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Pavel,

OK I just put in OpenCPN General. Is that explanation understandable? If so will transfer to flyspray.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Paul...
Thanks. What exactly do you do? Overwrite Unknown_Harbor.KAP with another file with different content? Or have two files called Unknown_Harbor.KAP in two different locations?

Pavel

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Pavel,
I create one kap called 'Unknown_Harbour" and scan it into OpenCPN then I create another with same name but different location and overlay the first kap file in same directory which is a chart group in OpenCPN and scan it in.

The strange thing about this is that on a different newer computer it works fine.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Paul...
May be that the OpenGL texture cache was already populated on the "older" computer? And are it's settings the same on both the machines?

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

The newer computer that works is Windows 10, the older that doesn't work is Windows 8.1. On the one that fails you can see in the O log that it does not replace the chart.

I will run the same thing on both computers and upload the opencpn.log

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Paul...
While I can't reproduce your behavior, I can see a problem having 2 equally named charts in two different folders that should be displayed at the same time. OpenGL or not does not make any difference at all in that case though - it is always broken.

Pavel

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

OK here is on V8.1 I called the chart HarborV8. Attached is the opencpn.txt.doc (cropped to start of OpenCPN before chart creation) and a screenshot of the second location on opencpn with quilting off, NOTE that the small popup in the corner is NOT the same as the chart.
