Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

Win10, VS2013. Git fetch 30 minutes ago.
Now there are better Journeyman tool bar icons for OD. It could be they and Watchdog are slightly over sized compared to the core icons but much better than before.
Thanks/ Håkan

@did-g

I see your pull request, but perhaps this could be a simpler fix for both problems:

I did some investigation and testing (hacking) in regards to this problem.

I found that just using a fixed number of threads instead of using wxThread::GetCPUCount() in glChartCanvas.cpp seems to work better.
I used four threads, and tested with 1 and 4 CPUs.

That simplifies things a lot. But perhaps there are implications I am not aware of ?

Cheers,
JM.

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

I would suggest putting max threads in OpenCPN.ini because a 4 core user may want to limit the cores. Other 8 core users might want to allow up to 6.

That would be good.

Every system is different as far as when the bottleneck is I/O or CPU.

But after 4 CPUs are involved I doubt much would be gained by adding more CPUs to this particular task.

I can run some tests to try and figure out a good default.
I'll try:
1 core with 1 thread.
1core with 4 threads.
2 cores with 2 threads
2 cores with 4 threads
4 cores with 4 threads

Cheers,
JM.

Will you post your opencpn.ini file?

Thanks

Not black screen, no files selector dialog, it was the nxt active window.

I notice in the ini file that GE2KAP is on; but it has been removed and I ran uninstall for GoodAnchorage. I set both to 0 and O hangs instead of crashes. The very first failure I got was a hang but no circle showded so I kept clicking Export selected until it crashed.

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

@wdkester...

Is it hanging now?

Will you go to C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenCPN\plugins and see what files are there? OCPN can actually load any PlugIn that it finds in this directly, whether enabled or not.

Thanks
Dave

You guessed right. It got reloaded. Dang these smart computers.

So, I deleted the dll file, restarted the system, reinstalled O with settings and it still hangs.

Are there no other .dll files? I think chartdldr_pi has several that accompany it. What Dave is asking for is every .dll file in the folder whether it is a plugin or not.

Edit: the accompanying .dll files end up in the main opencpn folder not the plugins folder. Sorry for causing any confusion.

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

wdkester...

OK, lets try removing all the dll's from the plugins directory, one by one.

Starting with that suspicious looking iacfleet_pi.dll

Thanks
Dave

Are you running Windows 10? If so, does it hang after you reboot the computer?

Windows 7, and I haven't been rebooting the OS; but when I restart opencpn, it restarts normally. But obviously something isn't normal. Something is being remembered that damages Export.

Re: OpenCPN RC 4.1.1301 Release

wdkester...

Working on this now. If you can, please DO NOT reload OCPN, or change anything. This one is hard to catch, and you have a live one in the trap. Don't let it get away....

Thanks
Dave
