Re: IAC Fleet Compatible with OpenCPN 4.2.0

IACFleet is the most efficient way to get graphical weather information.
Only certain metro offices provide this format, Eastern North Atlantic and Europe.

It would be very helpful if users made the request that this service be expanded to provide worldwide coverage.

Rick,

as always it is wrong what you wrote!
This plugin was first introduced only for the Fiji Meteorological Service 5 (five) years ago. So Fiji is Pacific as you might know. Later Nohal has enhanced this plugin for other services.

Please stop your writings now a little bit...

Re: IAC Fleet Compatible with OpenCPN 4.2.0

Now Gerhard, you are wrong. IAC Fleet code is based upon longtime ago morse code techniques. Look it up yourself, not just five years ago.

Rick,

are you kidding?
The iacfleet plugin was created by Carsten Borchardt, Wuppertal, Germany in December 2011, 5 years ago. At this time a I have made a version for Mac OS X already. Later in 2015 the code was hijacked by Nohal and enhanced. Because this plugin code was GPL Nohal has the right to do so but a word for the original author was missed...

Stop now your writings.

Gerhard

Re: IAC Fleet Compatible with OpenCPN 4.2.0

Gerhard,
I am not going to search for what I read about this to prove you wrong, because it is ridiculous and useless bickering. Why do you start picking on me now? You always have to have a fight? I am here to learn from and help my friends, and I have counted you as one for a long time, and still do. ...I am very puzzled. You want me to go away?

Re: IAC Fleet Compatible with OpenCPN 4.2.0

Rick,

do you have a switch for your brain? Then please switch it on.
Think a little bit and after that procedure start writing and NOT before...

We are talking here about the iacfleet plugin for OpenCPN and nothing else.
You may contact the author about it: muc@sy-fortytwo.de
His first version from December 2011 is still here:
forty-two - Downloads

Gilletarom...
It seems that the Brazilian IAC files you seem to try to download are currently not available.

Re: IAC Fleet Compatible with OpenCPN 4.2.0

Gilletarom,

just checked again the code of iacfleet plugin. Please keep in mind there is a time difference to Brazil of 5 hours to GMT. If you enter a wrong time you will get no answer because there is obviously no file of the future at the server.

Re: IAC Fleet Compatible with OpenCPN 4.2.0

Hello Carcode, hello Pavel,

No, the problem is not that you think.

For one, the version is that of Thingie recently downloaded: iacfleet_pi-0.8-win32-OV4.2

On the other hand, in this version, I think there's a little bug. Say, he must know how the plugin.

For first time use, start by using the button on the top right to select the files of the backup folder. This is what I had not done.

But all beginners make the same mistake.

It's wrong, when making this mistake of "how" is the message that appears. The message says "Can not save." In this particular case, the message should say "Unable to save the file. Start, first, by defining the backup folder."

After that, this type of message should not appear after the first use of the plugin.

Re: IAC Fleet Compatible with OpenCPN 4.2.0

Gilletarom,

please do never download OpenCPN and plugin files from uncertain sources. Always use the official files from opencpn.org
Especially if you are working with Windows you have a high risk to get infected from viruses, trojans or other malware which might not be seen by any antivirus software.
As you have seen in my screenshots the official version works and has no error messages.

Gerhard
