Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1524

sailorF54....

OK, it seems clear that there is some problem with OpenGL/OCPN on your system.

Is it Vista, or is it the ATI card, or is it something else?
Dunno, yet.

It seems not directly related to SHOM datum issue, since you cannot display cm93, for instance.

So, I will add some useful debugging messages into the next Beta, and we shall see what we see.

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1524

I deleted gecomapi_win32_pi15_v08_pi.dll but the program still does not run in Windows 7. I click OK at the "No warranty" screen and then it goes away, and nothing happens after that.

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1524

Thomas....

I <<think>> I have the same SHOM set that you and others are using....I think....

Do you have similar problems with 7130?

Could you post the header of 4233?

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1524

Dave,

Thomas said :

"So there is some fishy interaction between the GL mode and the chart database ..... or ?"

SHOM chart : I can reproduce with 7130 what he said from GL to NO GL and using Force database rebuilding.

Yes, the same scenario with 7130.
4233_1.txt.doc
...
...
A bit later....
Got it!
Look at the attachment as pure text. It's the non text characters that is the culprit. The second char is octal '000', should really be a '#'. More of these sprinkled around in the header. It's still an UTF-8 file, at least Kate says so.
Deleting all these in the text header for 7130, brought i back to normal.
So your file probably is different.

Sorry I haven't made myself clear.
CM93 charts DO DISPLAY FINE with 2.6.1524 with OpenGL.
So the issues are
#1 displaying SHOM charts with OpenGL in 2.6.1524
#2 Shift of SHOM charts re CM93, GE... without OpenGL in 2.6.1524

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1524

Thomas....
Unicode...

My file is not the same. second character is a substitute character, like a "?" in a circle. Must have been "de-unicoded" at some point in time.

The 000 as the second character in your header would probably act as a stop to the logic which reads the file looking for "SHOM". I'll test that.

Great detective work, Thomas

We'll get it right.

Thanks
Dave

sailorF54....

OK, my mistake. I get it now.

As you can see, we now seem to understand the SHOM datum problem. Shouldn't be related to OpenGL. File under the "Famous last words" category...

In order to decouple these issues, do you have any other BSB charts to test with OpenGL?

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1524

Thomas, and others....

Confirmed.
The 000 as the second character in the header trips up the SHOM detection logic.

I'll code around it, hopefully without breaking anything else.

Yep, at random old BSB chart US Reg8 11447_1 Key West Fl
No shift between it and CM93
But the program hangs on ticking OpenGL ....

Same setup here. No problems with chart groups. Are you sure that you have followed the instructions?

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1524

...but don't forget none of my old bsb's actually use DTMs...Not one.
....and this bug only came up when the one chart I picked to fool with ,as a demo in the ol NGA Charts thread by adding a DTM in the header, went weird...tis never a problem in real flight.

Added ...anyways, everything is working great on XP as Portable. What am I doing wrong?

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1524

sailracer....

Regarding your inability to start 2.6.1524 on Win7 with old config file:

I have studied the opencpn.ini file, and see no obvious problems. It starts up OK on my XP system, if I make the obvious local directory changes.

So, if you have the time, here is a debug method:

1. Rename you existing opencpn.ini to something safe, opencpnbackup.ini

2. Start opencpn 2.6.1524. It will use default values, and should come up.

3. If the default .ini runs OK, then we need to isolate the problem in the old config file.

4. Restore your old config file. Use an editor to remove sections/lines one by one, saving each time, and trying to run ocpn with the edited config file. Sooner or later you will discover what section/line is causing the startup problem.

You may safely remove some entire sections from the config file for testing, just to simplify the problem. All of the Plugin stuff can go away. [Settings/ObjectFilter] can go away. [Settings/AIS] similar. None of your navobj data should be affected.

Of course, I would remove these section one-by-one, since any one section may be the culprit we are looking for.

I'll help you through this if necessary.

This is relatively important, since many 2.5 users will experience the same thing on an upgrade to 2.7, and we need to nail this one.

Thanks, and good luck
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1524

BdBcat,
One problem I have just discover is that hyphen and accent are not supported in the last vrsion 2.6.1524. This could be a problem for some language, as there are many words that is normally written with it.
Thanks for the ameliorations in the program.
