The Chart-down-loader is a OCPN inbound plugin and is what I know updated together with O!? And my build is the present in Github. - And I always build and install the package so every inbound plugins are updated as well.

You're using Windows, right? I'm not but on Linux after a make I can run the new version from the build directory, but without a make install it's not loading the new compiled plugins. it could be the same on Windows.

What's in your opencpn.log for
PlugInManager searching for PlugIns in location /usr/local/lib/opencpn
PlugInManager: Loading PlugIn: /usr/local/lib/opencpn/libchartdldr_pi.so
Is it the latest?

wdkester...

I do not see your crash report.
When it crashes, please try to choose the option to send the report automatically. I'll get it then by email channel...

I still cannot crash on WP export, no matter what system I try.

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

All,

I have reproduced a crash related to chartdldr_pi.dll. But I was able to correct the problem. The issue I had was on Windows and due to the fact that the cmake build system builds opencpn.lib after it builds chartdldr_pi.dll. This is a long standing issue and well known. The solution is to be sure to run cmake twice each time you build to ensure chartdldr_pi.dll is linked with the correct version of opencn.lib. In my case I also deleted all copies of chartdldr_pi.dll beneath the build folder and ran cmake as a belt and suspenders trick.

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

There may be another buglet in chartdldr_pi.dll related to the version of wxWidgets. In the function
Code:
void initialize_images(void)
an exception is thrown when executing this line in icons.cpp:
Code:
_img_chartdldr = new wxBitmap(wxImage(sm));
I am not sure why wx does not like this bitmap. The actual .png file seems ok to me so this may be a bit of the crash mystery.

Whet the crash occurs O simply disappears. I don't get the option to send a crashdump. The crash dump appears in ProgramData>open>CrashReports so it can be emailed.

I tried to upload to the forum but no joy, only the screen uploaded. I tried to append .txt to the file but windows interferred. Anyway I think the dmpfile is too large.

The only unusual thing I have been doing is downloading hundreds of GE2KAP charts. Also lots of extreme zooming due to an overly sensitive touchpad.

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

When I compile and run this
Quote:
* master 015666b Correct for nonsensical mouse event coordinates.
Opencpn starts by bringing up two taskbar icons and the charts show with the toolbar, then the charts disappear and the toolbar is still on the screen the screen is black.

Does anyone else have this problem? Perhaps it is an opencpn.ini problem where a plugin or opencpn menu item was left open when closing?

I tried a bunch of different combinations, across all my available platforms. Different GL implementations do different things with single pixel lines. After all, the DC draw looks best, and I think it is worth the cycles to make it look nice. The table lookup on the circle draw and spherical coordinate math probably give us the most time saving, anyhow.

Thanks

I made a POC https://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN/pull/491 using To be an Artgrammer: Drawing nearly perfect 2D line segments in OpenGL


first screen capture with DC
second openGL
No idea if it's worth it.

If you can email the crash dump to me directly, I should be able to get it.

It was an opencpn.ini problem that I created. With Windows 10 you can assign Quick Access (Favorite Directories) to Folders. I did that to C:/Program Data/Opencpn because I always seem to be going there at times. Because it was labeled "opencpn" it was indistinguishable from other directories. So I just renamed it "o-program data". What happened under "Users" was the regular data folder for opencpn was renamed "o-program data" and a new folder was created later called "opencpn". This caused trouble with plugins, charts, everything.

After copying
C:\Users\All Users\o-program data to overwrite
C:\Users\All Users\opencpn

PS: Also I deleted rtlsdr enable and rtlsdr settings from the opencpn.ini file because that was failing.

The program seems to be working fine. I assume most Windows users will not do what I did!

What I did find was almost 300 crash reports going back to May. I assume I can just delete those.

As said before .... Luckily ones always learn, every day. Thanks for charing. Windows is not straight forward all the time, is it. As Linux is??? No - I'm not fishing comments!

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

Grib selection...
I prefer to do a manual selection, that I save and use quite a few times, until I move on.
I find that this work flow is no longer possible.
If I select "manual selection" and then save the settings, I can't get the saved selection back. The reason is that the next time I want to send a grib request I can't get to the selection dialogue without first doing a new manual selection of an area. This new selection of-course overrides the old saved selection.
The selection button should always include an option of going directly to the selection dialogue.
Am I missing something??

/Thomas

Re: OpenCPN Beta test 4.1.1108 Release

Version 4.1.1108 is working perfect on My 64 bits Linux, the Raspberry PI 2 and Banana Pi. Most of the remaining wrinkles are now ironed out. Can we expect a "OpenCPN Christmas 2015 version 4.2 "?
