Re: Beta Test / Technical

Dave..
Now using a small modification in my local code and the wmm value comes in very nice.
With the philosophy that the Garmin GPS will never send a variation value less then 0.2 in automatic mode I used this change on four places. I'm sure you recognise it.
This one from chart1.cpp rows ~7117
Code:
    if( 0.1 < m_NMEA0183.Hdg.MagneticVariationDegrees && !wxIsNaN(m_NMEA0183.Hdg.MagneticVariationDegrees)) //Hakan
                            {
                                g_bVAR_Rx = true;
                                gVAR_Watchdog = gps_watchdog_timeout_ticks;
                            }
Now OCPN again proves its outstanding position while correcting other gadgets failure!

Thanks for your efforts and for OpenCPN.
Håkan

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Dave..
I'm sorry to come back to this task but I have a strange behaviour.
Everything was working at home running the VDR play. Then in the boat it didn't work. The T_HDG is the same as the M_HDG. -- Scrath my head - I went home and run the VDR and now it's working - the T_HDG is M_HDG + wmm_var.
I also have a new VDR to use the same data. Then --- If I increase the speed of the VDR play it's not working!! -- And back again to low speed - working!
So - somewhere when the NMEA stream is as fast as normal the T-HDG value is stumbling on it self or any thing like that. This is hard to debug. Could you have a clue where to look?
Håkan

Re: Beta Test / Technical

I notice that bdcat accepted Sean's commit and pull request for changes to permit use of widgets wx-3.0 just 4 hours ago.

Should we now download wx-3.0 and change environment path names and then delete wx-2.8?

Do you know if making this change will improve the nasty nature of msvc++ or possibly make it more difficult?

I am not interested in pioneering this aspect but want to be current. Hopefully it will improve our problems with compile of plugins under windows until we can test and experience mingw compile and then standardize. Your advice would be appreciated to avoid deadends.

Text dutch wrong

The text which appears when making a route invisible is wrong.
'onzichtbaat' should be 'onzichtbaar'

window waypoint properties mess

Using OpenCPN 3.3.1606
1. When using waypoint properties window and i.e. adding a URL the size of the windows changes position en becomes very small

2. No gray line surrounding the icon field because of the height/position of the field for icon

Route header information disappears

Using OpenCPN 3.3.1606
When editing a route (route properties)
1. First enter router header information.
2. then delete a waypoint in this route
Allthe route header information earlier entered is also deleted.

Welcome to OpenCPN.

"Nohal" has already fixed the dutch spelling typo in the git source code.

Of the other 4 points you raise, I don't quite get #2

A picture would help !
I can repeat your other issues. Good catch - Thank you.

As you notice, this forum is good for discussions, but does not shine when it comes to keep track of bugs.
To make sure that your bugs don't get lost I have entered them in the projects bug tracker. See here
FS#1381 : Adding link to a wpt makes dialog very small.
FS#1382 : Lost Route Properties

This guarantees that the programmers will have a look at the problems before the next stable release.

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Bdcat, Pavel,

Please see Plugin Distribution

Since these standalone compiles currently depend on the user copying the appropriate version of Opencpn.lib (for Windows):
Is "Opencpn.lib" dependent ONLY on the version number?
Is the "opencpn.lib" file the same for any OS (Linux, Windows7, Mac) of a given version?
Is the "opencpn.lib" file dependent on a given compiler?

There was never needed any "opencpn.lib" for Mac OS X and I don't know what for it is e.g. which functions it has. For Mac OS X only the wxWidgets libs are needed either as static library or as dynamic libraries.

Rick, we can hear you, no need to post everything at least twice

No, it is dependent on the codebase from which it is built. From plugins POV, the important part is whether there was a change in the API or not.

No, it is specific for Windows, on the other systems the stuff is built differently, using the dynamically linked libs on that particular system.
Quote:

If by compiler you mean if there is a difference between one generated by MinGW gcc (if a lib file is generated at all there) and the one from MSVC, then yes, there is a difference.

Few notes: We are not going to switch the official build process for Windows to MinGW, there is absolutely no rational reason to do that except bringing more confusion to the whole process.

I will update the rest of the plugins to build independently of OpenCPN, build the installers, test and upload them and update the website. But not until there is a working, tested way to do so as I simply don't have time to troubleshoot and fix the whole process more than once. Sean's prototype has a few too many glitches and does not work for all the supported platforms AFAIK, so I will most likely reuse what's evolving with the S63 plugin. When it is done. At the same moment the opencpn.lib stuff will be handled in some consistent way.

Pavel

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Weather_routing no longer works --Sean says it is because Grib_pi has changed.
Is it possibly because of this change?

https://github.com/Ptizef/OpenCPN/tr...ns/grib_pi/src


GribRecordSet.h Add the possibility to read and display Altitude data 2 months ago
Which has perhaps changed the way records are stored or read by Grib_pi? Thus Weather_routing_pi ends up with a "Grib Failure" without doing a routing.

Please see this Grib_pi link and the weatherrouting referenced:
New Grib Presentation

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Re Grib_pi and Wx_Routing found out some more...
There are problems due to the current grib when trying to run Weather_routing.
Please see Weather Routing

It is due to the additional data types above the basic 4 in version 3.3.1419

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Compiling Plugins as Standalone. Sean has his plugins working with MSVC compile now (except weatherfax). He'd like me to "Make Packages". I have been looking through Cmake docs to find out how. Can anyone advise what the command line is for the standalone plugins? Thanks.

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Has anyone ever approached "The Salty Southeast Cruisers' Net" about making their data available to Opencpn? We might be able to convert it into a POI layer. I did this by hand with ICWW hotspots.

Someone has tried to get the Active Captain data and was refused.

Re: Beta Test / Technical

Happy Wednesday,

I am not sure what to call this, bug or user error, but I have seen this behavior for some time. At first I thought it was an issue with my GPS, it is old and I didn't buy it. Now I think is is something with OCPN, again bug or user error.

The issue is that the tracks that are recorded on my system jump around a lot.

This is the route and track as shown in OCPN


Here is the route(RED), track(BLUE), and nmea(GREEN) shown in Viking


Close up of the left corner


The gpx files are located here: route, track, nmea(quite large)

The nmea gpx file was created with gpsbabel from the VDR file recorded using the same instance of OCPN

Some stats on the files
Route
Distance: 149.17 SM
Track
Distance:150.92 SM
Avg Speed: 4.63 kts
NMEA
Distance: 499.31 SM
Avg Speed: 15.32 kts
Thoughts anyone?
