Nevermind...
Your connection settings? Nmea debug window showing what is in your data stream?

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

I can't seem to get Buoy labels for ENC (or CM93). I checked "all" in Mariner Standard.

The buoy seen in the screen shot has "OBJNAM: St Simeon Sound Lighted Buoy 19"

I'll bet it's something simple.

"Light Desrriptions" and "Extended Light Sectors" (when checkeddon't show either.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

How many times do I have to be reminded of that. The next time just shoot me.

The plot thickens. Reinstalled OCPN enabled OGL for roughly half an hour. Performance was greatly improved although still not stellar. Then the screen briefly went black and when it returned once again no OGL and a grayed out option to enable it. I will continue my investigations. Any advice and WAGs gratefully received.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

Bob...
That the options are greyed out completely means that the check for OpenGL capabilities that is performed on startup fails. Most of the time it is caused by buggy drivers, have a look if there is an update available for your system.
There also should be a section describing your system (from the time when you were running with OpenGL on) in the logfile looking something like
Code:
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Renderer String: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ironlake Mobile
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Version reported:  2.1 Mesa 10.3.2
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Detected Intel renderer, disabling stencil buffer
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Texture rectangle format: de1
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Using Vertexbuffer Objects
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Using Framebuffer Objects
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Using FBO Stencil buffer
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Using Depth buffer clipping
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Using s3tc dxt1 compression
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Compressed tile size: 128kb (6:1)
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Minimum cartographic line width:  1.0
15:37:30 CST: OpenGL-> Minimum symbol line width:  1.5
It would be very interesting to see it.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

That doesn't make sense to me because O started and ran with OGL enabled for roughly a half hour. At that point the screen briefly went black, O returned and continued to work but the OGL option to enable was grayed out.

Exactly for that reason it would be interested to find out what your graphical hardware is...

I can't find any text referring to OpenGL in the log from the day it was working.

Jean Paul,
I first saw your post as an email with no screen shots. I interpreted the second box to be the "Shoot Me" box.

It's the big A+ in the tool bar that I fail to press.

Yes I have the second text box checked.

If there is no opengl text then it is not running with opengl enabled.

Except that when I checked that morning it was in fact using OGL and did so for roughly the first half hour of the trip at which point the screen went black etc etc etc.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.0 Released

Bob...
Unfortunately in the logfile you posted there is nothing that suggests that you were running with OpenGL working.
What graphics adapter does the machine have? Did you check if there is an update for the graphics drivers available?

Pavel
