Yes and it does not show, even when I go back to where I jotted it down it does not appear

Re: Feature Requests

How did it occur to you that you needed the MS Runtime C++?

Was there a message? If so, When did that message appear?
We'd like to know for the FAQ

Rick...

It can not occur, ever, if the plugin is correctly built. Forget about this "incident".

And the majority of all commercial ships still use NMEA 0183 and I think a N2k bus is far away from being common on that market?
Maybe a temporary help: email jan 2015

I (Meindert Sprang) am almost finished with the new MiniPlex-3Wi-N2K which has 4 NMEA 0183 inputs, 2 NMEA 0183 outputs, SeaTalk in and out(!) and NMEA 2000 (both ways). And USB of course. I hope we can start selling these beginning of February 2014

The MiniPlex-3 series with NMEA 2000 will convert NMEA 2000 into NMEA 0183 and vice versa. It will also have an option to convert raw NMEA 2000 frames into a $MXPGN sentence to allow reading PGN's that cannot be converted into NMEA 0183 like switch and lamp info. This sentence can also be used to generate any arbitrary PGN on NMEA 2000. I have attached a PDF describing this sentence. Maybe you can present this to the OpenCPN community...
The NMEA organisation is currently looking into this sentence too.

Re: nmea2000, nmea0183, ST and WIFI for openCPN?
Heinrich...

Thanks for the info.

I see no reason why this device could not be directly supported by OpenCPN. Of course, the new $MXPGN sentence will not be recognised by the OCPN base, nor any existing PlugIns. But a PlugIn could be built to intercept these sentences and do whatever might be wanted. That PlugIn may also interface by the USB port for direct control of the device as well.

The conversion of more "normal" PGNs into NMEA0183 messages would be transparent to OCPN, and would work automatically.

So, a good product idea here, and I hope to see it shipping soonMXPGN sentence.pdf

Rick,

A FAQ should try to limit itself to frequently asked questions. It becomes not so useful when long and full of one time only incidents not applicable to the majority of users.

This incident is not frequently occurring. Likely never again.

Likewise, copying posts from CF to the FAQ or documentation isnít a great idea in my opinion. Without context several of the FAQ and doc sections have become confusing to the reader. In the FAQ one could point the reader to the CF OpenCPN forum where they may find infrequently encountered problems discussed. It would be nice to explain how they can use the detailed search engine. Then they could see the entire context of the discussion

Re: Feature Requests

Agreed, Good points.
  • Frequent
  • Can you identify which ones are confusing so I can fix them?
  • Yes, I do use CF links when appropriate and it can shorten the FAQ
  • An explanation of how to search should be at the top? Good Idea.
  • I was thinking they should be given some structure by topic.
Thanks.

Not CF links. One link to this forum and an explanation on how to use the search function of the forum. That is one of the FAQs, titled "How do I find answers to questions not present in this FAQ and not covered in the manual which I have already studied?"

I had to separate it to two questions. Still somewhat convoluted, so any suggestions are welcome.

Re: Feature Requests

Hi,


is it also possible to implement "Zoom/Scale Weighting" for mbtiles?


For example: zoom=zoom+1 -> tilesize=128x128

BlackSea...


It is technically possible. But not for OCPN 5.0. We are at feature-freeze point, and very near closeout.


Add to Flyspray tracker as a Feature Request, and it will be considered for the next Release.


Thanks
Dave

Re: Feature Requests

Not sure if this was asked before, search seems broken.


I recently purchased a ONWA chartplotter. ONWA provides worldwide charts for their plotters at no charge (BIG YEAH!). I was wondering if there was any plan to support their K-chart format.

No. And as far as I know there is no documentation available for that format.
