MSW Build

Manimaul....

I am delighted to get more people able to build from source, run debuggers, etc. Really speeds up the release cycle.

If you are using mingw/gcc, then the ./configure, make method should work. I think mingw supports gnu automake......
What build problems are you having?

or....
Try CMake, which will build a Visual Studio solution. This is what I use.

or...
The Watcom makefile (Makefile.wat) probably still works with some tweaking for your system directories.

I have attached my Visual Studio solution for reference. Had to rename it due to forum attachment size limits. Dumb....


Good luck, and let me know how to help.

Dave

The download link remains the same:

Thanks for your patience here, and a special thanks to our forum member.

Could I suggest this be put in a "Sticky" for easy access?

Cheers

I suppose you refer to the beta download link?
It is quite "sticky" already in the faq-thread post #2.

Dave.. In answer to yours #71

The target I mentioned has stopped transmitting but I will try to copy the NMEA data should it appear again.

We had a similar concurrence earlier remember during the sailing holiday of a Swedish friend of mine. He has a 3G setup feeding his combined AIS/GPS data to Siitech's network. At that time also MY own Brazilian station was twinned beside his own ship displaying as an AIS target whilst his boat was displaying your previous 'tankship'

This time,only the MY ship icon was displayed and it switched between red and green continuously.

Tide Right-Click, last waypoint delete, frame icons and Alt-Tab all OK

CM93 slider bar - great feature but something's not right... Once a detail level has been set, single-left click on the slider turns *some* chart detail on or off - for example, cardinal buoys appear with no top marks, click on the slider bar again and the buoys disappear but the top marks of the buoys appear Try it in the Dover Straits (SE England / North coast of France) with the CM93 slider set to +4 at a scale of 1:200,000. Also, there's a confusing interaction between "Show ENC text" button event/action and clicking on the CM93 slider. Currents and Tides buttons are also having similar strange effects on chart detail.

No crashes though

Further to my previous post, the Change Colour Scheme button is also having odd effects on chart items disappearing/re-appearing.

Also, there is no perceptible difference in lightness/darkness between the lightest (default) setting and the next lighting level.

Do you use vector charts? On NOAA raster charts there is a (small) difference between lightest (default) setting and the next lighting level. Screenshots somehwere in an old post...probably monster thread. I re-post on request.

Yes, using vector (C-map) charts. I wonder if it would be possible to make the four lighting levels configurable? Not a biggie though. I'm more concerned about chart detail appearing/disappearing.

Care to share a couple of screenshots? I tried here, but I am probably looking at the wrong details on my vector charts

Four different lighting levels screenshots. Note no difference in lighting between #1 and #2 but chart items disappearing in #2, then re-appearing in #3 and disappearing in #4 (same thing is happening with Currents, Tides and Show ENC Text buttons and by clicking on the CM93 slider button (not changing the level of detail by moving the slider).

Thread

Anybody know how to un-subscribe from this thread?

My email is flooded. I try to un-subscribe, using "Thread Tools". It says "You are now un-subscribed". OK.

But it doesn't stick. Emails continue, and the next time I try to un-subscribe, same result: "You are now unsubscribed, blah, blah...."

Head banger for sure....

Thanks
Dave

925

Hi. 925 looks fine!

1) when I close OCPN while it is showing a CM3 chart and I reopen it, it starts showing the BSB chart instead of the CM93.

2) I saw the right menu on CM93 for detail slider selection. Why not just adding 2 rows in the right click menu saying "CM93 Details Increase" (i.e add 1 to the detail slider) and "CM93 Details Decrease" (subtract one) without showing any slider? Open discussion on the most useful solution. In any case, I'd prefer you to leave as the last row in the menu the more important function "Object Query".

Ciao, Marco.
