Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

I was looking at another posters quilting anomaly on the Alligator River; but was not seeing his problem. I turned OpenGL off and got the mess you see in the screenshot. Notice that the chart segment in the middle is not oriented with North up.

I tried attaching the log file but it was too large for txt

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

I didn't think that skewed charts are supposed to be quilted without opengl.

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

Hakan, Paul, et al...

We think we have the last "cm93 Grey box" regression resolved.
Please try the current github master, and let us know how it goes.

Enjoy virtual cruising in Sweden....too cold for me now.

Thanks
Dave

Dave, If you could imagine how much I agree on your last point. Our winter is not for me even though the temperature until today has been comparably human. Next winter on the Canaries??

The flowers from before are now also valid for my XP.
No "grays" and so far no crash either, been running half an hour since recent commits build.
Tomorrow a Intel 965 test in the boat. (First heater and coffee on stove, then the PC).

Thanks
Håkan

I have tested by running the VDR at the various scales that previously had problems with grey areas being displayed in place of charts. I have not observed any problems.

Thanks,
Paul

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

How are you guys testing? VDR_pi does not work for me and I can't compile a fresh one with correct opencpn.lib Please see VDR Plugin

Maybe I should try removing and git clone? ---but I don't think this will help at all, this has been a problem for awhile. VDR for 4.1.x does not work either, fails, hangs and hangs O. I need it for testing.

Hakan, thanks for the link. I've downloaded it again, thought it was corrupted. It wasn't.

Rick,

You can use a Python UDP server to "play" Hakan's file. This is the Python script:

Code:
import socket
import sys
import time

if len(sys.argv) < 4:
    print("USAGE:")
    print("[python] VDRServer1.py InputFile IP_Address Port# [Sleep time]")
    print("Sleep time is the delay in seconds between UDP messages sent.")
    print("Sleep time defaults to 0.1 seconds")
    sys.exit()

UDP_IP = sys.argv[2]
UDP_PORT = int(sys.argv[3])
filename = sys.argv[1]

if len(sys.argv) > 4:
    delay = float(sys.argv[4])
else:
    delay = 0.1

print(['UDP target IP:', UDP_IP])
print(['UDP target port:', str(UDP_PORT)])

sock = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, # Internet
                     socket.SOCK_DGRAM) # UDP
f = open(filename, 'r')

while True :
    mess = f.readline()
    if len(mess) < 1:
        f.close()
        sys.exit()
#    print(mess)
    mess = mess.strip()
    sock.sendto(mess.encode("utf-8"),(UDP_IP, UDP_PORT))
    time.sleep(delay)
You run it like this:

> python VDRServer1.py Hakefjord.txt 127.0.0.1 2947 .033

Set up a communications channel for network UDP. This is what the setup screen in O looks like for Windows.

Rick,

I downloaded the VDR plugin from the OpenCPN.org web site:

Plugins for OpenCPN 4.1 | Official OpenCPN Homepage

This is the page of plugins built for use with the 4.1.x betas and builds of OpenCPN.

Paul

Dave,

Using latest git I cannot see the "grey box" problem any more.

OOOPS! Should have a warning when someone attempts this.

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

Well, this is interesting... I have downloaded from Plugins for OpenCPN 4.1 | Official OpenCPN Homepage and installed.... twice.

Then I have been trying to play NMEA from both VDR and NavMonPC (what a nice program that is) and Opencpn seems to hang every time I try to connect. I cannot have O connected to a Nmea data stream or it just freezes without fail. I have to Close or stop the virtual port in NavMonPC, force O to close, then restart O and O acts normally. Then when I try to get NavMonPC virtual port with Com15 selected, to Connect, O shuts down. Same thing was happening with VDR.

I am starting to think that the 4.1.1108 version that I am using has nmea bugs.
I will try recompiling Opencpn again and install that, then see, but I am going to take a break to see my 100 yr old Dad!

Dan, how do you run that command for python? From any prompt window?
I thought I had pyton because of HDSR or SDR-Radio and I see pieces of it in Gimp 2 and NREL/BeOpt2.5 but I don't find a python directory in the C drive anymore...maybe that is on my Win10 machine. --Perhaps this technique should be put on the website, under supplementary programs?

Thanks for all the suggestions and help!

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

Rick,

Python is a platform independent scripting language interpreter. You can download it for Windows here: https://www.python.org/downloads/

Either V2.7 or V3.X will work but 2.7 is more compatible with Linux as most of those systems don't support 3.X yet.

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

Paul. and Dan what version ocpn are you using? I believe I am using 4.1.1108. 5a4dcad Implement mag var.. Should I drop back?

PS: Updated to current repos. I am embarrassed to say that I did not copy the newest opencpn.lib from opencpn/build/release to opencpn/build and I think that may be the problem. opencpn.lib was from 11/16. - Will find out soon.

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

Nope, no dice. It still chokes, spits and freezes. I have to force a close. With both Navmonpc and VDR.
I am on Windows 7, * master d7673fa Set upper bound on scaled vector chart text size.

Will try Dan's python way of serving up Nmea.
