Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1606 Released

Hello Dave,

O331606, with an ASUS 1015H, W7. 10'
Exactly, see screen copy for more details.

With CM93,
when I choice OpenGL Off, no problem.
When i choice OpenGL ON; the screen is immediately completely grey.

Confirmed on Dell XPS, W8.1 and Dell ATG W7.
After closing and restarting O it's ok. Just happens when switching from non-OpenGL to OpenGL.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1606 Released

Hello Dave,
Here is a fairly difficult to explain bug.

I displayed a raster chart of Brazil. It seems that this is not a problem (with OpenGL Off). I have simultaneously CM93.

Then I try to drag the chart with the mouse to get the display of the Europe area. I can begin to drag the chart like a carpet but after a number of tests, I can not drag the chart. carpet reverted to the previous position automatically.
To stop this, I have to click in the bar charts, the yellow bar CM93.

See 3 screen copy
- First screen copy, Sahara is displayed and impossible to drag down to up. But is possible to drag left to right or right to left.
- Second screen copy, I click on CMP93 chart bar and then, all is Ok
- Third screen copy, The sahara is displayed but the raster blue bar il always visible. This is not normal. (This occur before second screen copy).

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1606 Released

I just gave the new Touch interface a trial run. Here are my first impressions:

1. Sizing - Buttons/menus looks good (maybe a even a little large) for an 8" screen, in my judgement much too large for a 10" screen. On the 10" screen, they take up 15% of the chart area in portrait mode and 25% in landscape mode. Maybe the sizing could be independent of the Touch feature. We might need 2 maybe 3 sizes.

On my 10" screen the buttons (not touch mode) seem a little small but definitely usable; on my 15" screen the buttons seem about right. Menus are OK on both.

2. Right click on the tool bar doesn't do anything.

3. A single touch on a route is, I think, a good replacement for Rollover; however it produces a "highlighter" effect on the route that is difficult to get rid of.

4. A single touch of a waypoint gives the same "highlighter" effect but doesn't display an Info panel. It could display the comments field from properties.

5. With lock WP off, I accidentlly grabbed a named WP at the beginning of a route and moved it. I ended up with two WP with the same name, one in the original position one in the new position. Thank god for undo. 3.3.1419 does the same thing.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1606 Released

Hello Dave,

I was very annoyed by what I described in post # 34. I had never seen that.

I decided:
- Completely uninstall 0 331606 (including deleting the contents of the initialization folder)
- To completely clean the machine with CCleaner
- Reinstall O331606.

After that, I tested the NV-Varlag, I rebooted the raster charts of Brazil and I redid the experience of post 34. I removed the NV-Verlag charts again and I still experience with charts of Brazil.

This time I have no problem. I can drag the map from Brazil to Europe without a problem.

Whew! Good news. Sorry to have created a doubt.

That said, it starts to become a bad habit of having to clean the machine with CCLMeaner, for O works well.

B.R. Gilletarom.

Sorry, but this morning, the "gray issue" is back. Must again close and re-open O to make them disappear.

Hi,

This happen to me when I first instal 3.3.1419 version, I have to rebuild and update the chart database; from now, for each version, I will do that;

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1606 Released

Hello,

Yesterday I did a complete new installation as I said in another post. And then I make several different tests. I could open and close OpenCPN and everything worked fine.
This morning it started well. Then I open firefox and thunderbird. This is when I took O (that I had not closed) that the problem is new product.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1606 Released

Folks..

I confirm the cm93 "grey screen" effect. Happens when you start O without OpenGL, then enable OpenGL one time. Does not happen if you start O with OpenGL enabled from the start. Does not seem to be related to database rebuild.

Not new in 3.3.1606. Happens on 3.3.1419 also.

On the list now.

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1606 Released

How can one change the font shown on the charts besides the currents arrows (strenght of the current)?
It must be in the ini file, but where!
Best Rgards.

Yes, I started fiddling with that and changing every font had no effect on that number under the Current Arrows....It is not the same font as the one under Tide Bars which is odd?

Which,by the way, did not seem to exist on the last Beta. The Tides have had a number under them so I see it's "consistent" for Current arrows to have a value displayed too.( tiny peeve:I would rather not have values displayed at all unless I open the detail window-I like the graphic indication better)

(Windows XP )

add: but new beta sofarworks great apart from the restart needed for OpenGL grey-out

Dave..
Many thanks, I'm released. So far I've thought this was related to BR24radar_pi since I often forgot to swith OpenGL on before activating the plugin and then had to activate OpenGL on the fly - and restart OCPN.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.3.1606 Released

Hi...

Font for current arrow value is not selectable. Hard coded, due to oversight. sigh....

Code:
    pTCFont = wxTheFontList->FindOrCreateFont( 12, wxDEFAULT, wxNORMAL, wxBOLD, FALSE,
              wxString( _T ( "Eurostile Extended" ) ) );
On the list

Thanks
Dave
