Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.8.10109

Hello All,

Here is a new problem that we have not faced so far.

I downloaded the last GRIB at SkyRon for the area called "Cherbourg". And I posted this grib with the GRIB plugin. More precisely, I only displayed the "Currents" data contained in this Grib file.
Simultaneously, I clicked the currents icon in the OpenCPN Icons bar.
Generally, the current arrows of grib and those of OpenCPN are almost in the same direction, and with intensity difficult to compare but which seems consistent.
On the other hand, sometimes for certain time slots of the Grib file, the arrows may have reverse directions locally.
It is the quality of the data contained in the two files, Skyron and OpenCPN which probably explains this.

The question then is: Which of the two sources of information is most credible?

Personally, in view of the progress being made here in Europe, on the observation of currents in the Channel, using the satellites and current forecasting models that have been put in place, I tend to think that the data from SkyRon are more reliable than OpenCPN data.

See the screenshot below.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.8.10109

On Win10
Tide and current curve windows:
Two issues:
1. Dusk mode F5 don't affect the tide curve window. It's always full bright.

2. When the window is resized I'd prefer if the new size is saved for next time. Now it always open at default size.

Install with (e.g.) gdebi
OpenCPN in /usr/local/share
Plugins in /usr/local/lib
exec in /usr/local/bin
Thanks SailerF54 for the compiled version of the beta.

I'am using here OpenPlotter 0.7.0 on a Linux Stretch with latest kernel version 4.9.75

Installed the beta on the Raspberry without removing the present version first.

I can report it works great on the RPI and with the VC4 driver on.

L key-shortcut for L light also works without problem. The screen movements are very fast.

Regards,


Bram

The SOG-COG from positions is not always working. In my setup I don't get any info, however O does get positions updates. Dashboard also does get speed info.
Attached a VDR recording.

Correction it is the OpenPlotter update 0.7.0 not the version.

rooi...
It may be the VDR replay rate and time stamps causing this, like for me once. See this and some previous postings: OCPN Beta 4.8.1 PreAlpha
I think we better test this alive.

That is true, but for WR, the grib is normally required so it makes more sense to use the grib time.

What if the tide and current arrows on the chart could be changed by clicking on the open tide window (if it is open) to change the time?

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.8.10109

No luck for uploading, I retried without success, Something is blocking.

I discover inadvertendly the new trick, by zooming with the mouse up or down the time change in the Windows time of the tide Windows curve. This must be a new features that I was not aware of. This must be the reason.
Regards.

Should there be a new beta in the near future or not?
