Dave..

Would it be problematic for you to make available the old download/installation method as an option for a while during the transition to the MI method?

I've installed and de-installed today opencpn136rc1226.msi a couple of times without any problem on Windows 7.

Sinbad7,

If it is of any help,

If you can work with regedit, you migh want to goto the key's
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Uninstall
and try to find OpenCPN. At my system it looks like the attached picture, delete the key and try to re-install OpenCPN

Zooming in and out

Hello and MCaaHNY

When I zoom in on a harbour special (I use CM93 charts) it starts with a small chart, in size of a stamp. When zooming in further in the harbour special it will fill the screen more and more. Is it possible to let the harbour special fill the screen at the first zoom level.

Is there a way to offset the display so I can see more in front of the boat eg. not to have the boat in the middle of the screen, but still north up mode.
also can the boat symbol be smaller? or is there a way to select the size of the boat.
//Jan

Further to my report above, the .po file encoding settings seem to have changed from "utf8" to "iso-8859-1" in the new .po file; this means all special characters are malformed. Setting it back to utf8 in the preferences does NOT help, incidentally.

Hi, about new RC1226. Well, panning BSB is much worse than before. If you zoom in on some charts then when you drag the map down (south) the map drags faster than the mouse, while when you drag up, the map drags less or even does not drag at all (some maps even moves south!).

This was noted on some NZ maps.

Ciao, Marco.

Still about 1226. The always dry rocks in CM93 use now a different symbol w.r.t. coverd/uncovered rocks. This is great. I just wonder if it is'nt better to use the same symbol used in the ENC maps (that is the official symbol, I guess). Here is a comparison between CM93 (left) and ENC (right) of the same place.

Ciao, Marco.

Thanks Dave...

All ok now with my download/install of the 1226 version.
The problem was my old version. MI would not allow me to overwrite and I had to un-install the old version. After that,all worked ok. The wind barbs etc. all working fine with the European gribs.

Marco,
I can't recreate your problems. Can you publish the kap-headers for the problem charts? "Historically"(!) similar problems has been associated with problematic geo-referencing.

Well, almost all NZ maps I've georeferenced (KapGen) now present the dragging issue. Just as example see NZ24 NZ29 NZ25 etc.

All those maps worked very well in older OCPN (even if I think I've notice a slight worse dragging precision in latest betas OCPN)

If you cannot build the NZ maps, I can send you some.

Ciao, Marco.

OK! I have a handful of your charts loaded (NZ 26,268,286 and more) and can't repeat your problem. Have you tried with other raster charts, such as US or Brazilian charts?
I wonder if we have a platform problem?
Anyone else experiencing similar problems as Marco?

I agree, there is a delay that creates jerkiness when dragging the chart with a mouse. It is noticeable now, can't say in which beta it started.

I have tested a few US BSB charts and the following pattern emerged.

The very large charts: 50, 501, 530 do not track the cursor during dragging.

Smaller charts: 18007, 18020, 18022, 18740, 18744 track the cursor only when the zoom level is less than 1x. With the zoom level 1x or greater these charts do not track either.

Very curious.

CM93 and ENC always track the cursor.

I tested this by dragging the chart while observing the cursor location in the Status Bar.

Vista crashes

Hi guys:

I don't know if this sort of real world experience is useful at this stage, but for what it's worth: Last week I ran down the ICW from Wilmington, NC to Charleston, SC using OpenCPN as my chartplotter. Had two laptops on board. One was running Vista. The other was older and ran Windows XP Professional.

I started running the Vista computer (running OpenCPN 1.3.4 downloaded a week ago Wednesday from Sourceforge). It worked o.k., but every 3-4 hours it would crash, and I would get one of those frosted-over Vista screens saying OpenCPN was no longer running. So I switched over to the older, Windows XP computer, and it ran fine for the rest of the trip.

By the way, I refueled the other morning in the Sampit river right behind what looked like Dave's boat. Nobody appeared to be stirring. Otherwise I would have knocked to say what a great program you've written and Thanks!

I could send you logs from the Vista computer if they're any use (and if you tell me again how to find them ).

All the best, and many thanks!

Chart panning....

Marco/cagney....

Could you email me a few representative charts with the panning problem? I think most of my NZ charts are from old conversions and obsolete....

Thanks
Dave
