Re: Beta Test / Technical

Hakan, I'm just thinking out why O might be freezing up with high memory use at about 1660mb with 4gb ram. It will eventually become clear.

I hope this is the correct place or this comment - and I'm sorry if it isn't.

I am wondering if a separate app that is running simultaneously on the same device that is running OpenCPN, can pass along instructions to OpenCPN to drop a MOB waypoint.

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Aussi....
"Everything" is possible with a computer program. But there are, what I know, no prepared OCPN functions for that. Like a NMEA message or similar.
But depending on your level of programing knowledge you can do it. A simple old fashion batch program can for example activate OCPN and pass the keyboard commands Ctrl+space.
Since your question was rather imprecise the answer will be philosophic in a correlative manner.

Re: Beta Test / Technical

No, I do not believe this is possible at the present time. If there were a plugin developed which would do this. Hakan has phrased this best.

There is an AIS PLB function which works which will give you an AIS PLB Mob Alert however. This has been tested and should function properly provided the PLB devices antenna's are above the waves and direct line of sight to the boat. However this is a SART alert and should not be used unless in MOB emergency.

I can give you the link, to this feature but you should first search for it in the Opencpn User Manual and you will find it.

OpenCPN has an active and aggressive approach towards safety, so this feature was developed sometime ago by the developers. --Thank you Opencpn

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Possible reason of crush on windows-out of memory. implementation GetMemoryStatus for windows is wrong. mem_total for 32bit application on win64 can return 4GB, but without LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE can actually use less than 1GB(2GB-minus reseved space and dlls). g_memCacheLimit can be too large because wrong address space size, and hit bad_alloc

Re: Beta Test / Technical

The 4.5 beta testing did not start yet. When it does, the binaries will be provided at the usual places (opencpn.org download page and the beta PPA for linux)

Dimitry, this is interesting. Are you suggesting that the memory use under task manager is incorrect? Nevertheless the problem seems to coincide with memory use.

Re: Beta Test / Technical

RolloverWin oddity.
Win10. Today's fetch and build of v4.5
On one of my Win10 is the winrollover background color missing. It's valid for all RolloverWIN, like AISRollover and RouteLegInfoRollover.
This occurred after today's build. For a 4.5 build from a week ago the background color is yellow as stated.
On another Win10 is the color as usual. See attached screenshots first from my Win10-32 and the other for a Win10-64. The same OCPN setup is used for both.
OpenGL On/Off is equal in this matter.
Any other properties I could serve to trace this?

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Hakan...

This is a bug, corrected in github now.
Actually, missing yellow occurred only in non-GL mode only, by my testing.

Thanks
Dave

Fix confirmed.
Now it's yellow background again in both OpenGL On and Off. On my PC neither worked before.
Thanks
Håkan

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Win10 v4.5 as of today.
Data connection new behavior after yesterday's commits.
For info:
The previous rather handy possibility to use 192.168.x.x : 10110 is now not working anymore. (I think OCPN multiplexer was the only one capable to shortcut this way.)
I'd to use the more precise 192.168.1.255 : 10110 instead.
Q: was this intentional or just happened by mistake?
If my observation is confirmed we've to update the wiki.
Correction:
The more official shortcut method 192.168.255.255 : 10110 is though working fine. -> wiki instead of 192.168.x.x?

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Win10 + Win10 + WinXP, O v4.5 built today;
I think there's a new method to use the key F4. It can be used to start the measuring tool. But Alt + F4 is also closing any program. Now when closing by Alt+F4 the mouse pointer is a pencil before O is closed. Not a big harm but it looks strange.

For else I've been (AP)sailing following a route with this v4.5 for hours on three machines. OK - simulation but that is OCPN not aware of. Maybe a more stressed multiplexer than normal. I've used normal and portable instances, dashboard, gribs and BR24radar. No other issues so far.

Look at this...! We have been anchored for hours. Very stable at anchor no swinging back and forth and no surge. Still O shows us doing 1.0 kts? I have observed this a couple of times the last few days. Unplugging & reconnecting the USB/GPS plug sets things right again.
Using 4.5 latest Git. Ubuntu 14.04
