Other languages may have similar problems, but with different words, so it could come in handy.
...um yeah, but we use wxW, not really sure how that applies to our code??

It seems that wx is compatible with gettext in many respects, hence my suggestion to look into if it was possible to include context sensitive strings.

After some digging, I have to conclude that it's not possible - for the moment.

From the wxwidgets Roadmap for V 3.0:

Nice To Have

It would be nice to have a lot of other things for this release but we don't have currently any possibility to work on the following. Please let us know if you can help with any of these:

Support for context-sensitive translations in wxLocale

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1105 Released

Did anyoe had a look at the tidal curves for Dec 31st? Check the peculiar things between 19 an 21 hundred hours. I have an error of 2 hours for the tide predictions, leading to all erroneous predictions. What cause this in OpeCpn? The same file use in Wtides give the correct results. I am i zone EST (5h).

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1105 Released

gee, P_Dub, now that you mention it, I see what you mean-something is screwy on that day and it doesn't seem to recover after that either....

Yes, there is something fishy going on at the end of Dec 31st '12
Also, the tides are shifted back on time on Jan 1st '13 relative to Dec 31st '12 which cannot be correct, as High and Low tides occur later every day.

The harmonic set used is the european one at

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1105 Released

It seems to me that you are jumping from 2012 to 2014. Please check if that is correct. ( Time errors between 18:00 and 21:00 EST or 23:00 and
01:00 GMT december 31st).
Bye

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1105 Released

Curiouser and curiouser...using the Wxtides tcd file in O screws up but Wxtide does fine (per the official Canadian tidebook) so what could O be doing?

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1105 Released

Happy, et al...

O does a blending of tide/current coefficients at the new year transition. This is required due to the organization of the constituent data as by epoch (year).
Obviously not well tested until now. I'll have a look at it, at low priority.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1105 Released

Dave Good Morning.
May I suggest you to make it a high priority for your next beta version as the end of the month is coming faster than one may think!
There seems to be 17 days of difference or a year or somethig like it and it is in the coding for what a programmer told me.
Bye

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1105 Released

I tested the stable release 3.0.2, for a tidal discontinuity at new-year, and found no problem. At least not for the stations I tested.

Good point, Cagney

The european data also seems good across New Year's eve

(as compared with the pics in my previous post)

Sorry to disagree, Dave... Imagine how the annoucement that the tidal data is known to be incorrect in a stable release, and that this is a minor issue, would be received in some areas...
I'd have to recommend in conscience NOT to download it !

The error does propagate all year long
Look at the difference one month later !!!

First pic is 3.0.2, data agrees with all predictions I could find (e.g. pic 3)
Second pic is 3.1.1105 and is way off

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1105 Released

SailorF54
If this was a stable release I would support you 110%.
But ... we are talking about a beta test release, with a handful of other issues, that is certainly not ready for prime time.
The way things are, I would not recommend anyone, except perhaps a seasoned beta tester , to use this or, even the next beta, for actual navigation.
Or ... have I totally misunderstood you?

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1105 Released

So now you know that only the last 3.1.1105 has a problem. It should not be too difficult to locate the problem and correct it. I brought this as a positive comment observe in lookig ahead of times.
Best Regards
