Re: OpenCPN Radar Overlay PlugIn

The work you guys do for complete strangers is just awsome!
I think OCPN has the best tech-support of all chart software.
How many open-source project can say the same?

I ain't got much money,my boat is far from finished, but I will ASAP donate the price of cheapest comparable chart software.
edit: I guess nothing I can afford quite compares, so the price of some cheap chart plotter software will have to do.

Much respect!

Re: OpenCPN Radar Overlay PlugIn

Matt/Cindy...

Here is a gradar V1.4 with more logging. We might learn something. This may be an iterative process, but I'm game.

Good Luck
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Radar Overlay PlugIn

Thanks Dave,
We're doing some Xmas shopping, but will definitely attack this this evening.
Thanks,
Matt
Oh, one question, my s/w expert doesn't think it's an issue, but there are 3 log on IDs set up on the PC, Cindy, Matt and Navigator (for chartplotter,SSB,shipboard PC etc,).
Could the data from the scanner to the App be stopped because of a conflict between the IDs? All setup and development is being done on Cindy's ID. We aren't using Navigator yet. I'm starting to think we should take a virgin PC and set it up, or ship Cindy's PC to you

Re: OpenCPN Radar Overlay PlugIn

Dave, I can already tell you we'll have problems with the .pdf extension. Got one without that? I'll email my address privately.

Maybe the radar foes not work? Any way to test it with multi display?

Re: OpenCPN Radar Overlay PlugIn

I only play a EE on TV, but my guess is that the wireshark results showed it operational?

Re: OpenCPN Radar Overlay PlugIn

Matt...

We try a longer timeout on the initial status detection logic

Try this one....

Re: OpenCPN Radar Overlay PlugIn

And another. This one tries to be more specific about the multicast input address.

Re: OpenCPN Radar Overlay PlugIn

Thanks Dave,
About the same, I think.

Re: OpenCPN Radar Overlay PlugIn

Matt....

Wild idea (from internet search).

1. Start wireshark capture. Let it stay running...

2. Then start OCPN, with wireshark still running in background.

Hmmmm?

Dave

Re: OpenCPN Radar Overlay PlugIn

Dave

I appears that there might be 3 gpses running. Also requiring a re-enabling of the plugin for every activation of OpenCPN is not normal. Maybe we should have a look at the logfile.

Re: OpenCPN Radar Overlay PlugIn

Chuck...

Great point.

Matt:
Please post a clip of your logfile, most recent OCPN execution (i.e. at the bottom of the logfile)

Also, please check your Program Files/OpenCPN/Plugin directory. There must be exactly ONE gradar......dll file. That one should be the latest one I sent you. Rename the V1.2 and V1.3 files, or temporarily move them away.

Dave
