Re: Plugin for Current Speed and Direction (Set and Drift, or VDR)

What I forgot to mention :
I'm using a higher plugin api version (1.11) than dashboard, so it won't be endlessly backwards compatible.
But it's working fine with the latest official release 4.2

If you're compiling O sources on your own from the latest commits :
There must be a glitch (since a week or so) somewhere in the O routines.
I experienced constant crashes 10 to 20 seconds after startup, with or without input. At first I thought it's my plugin, but after using the official 4.2 opencpn.exe file, everything's fine, so I assume it's O itself ...

Re: Plugin for Current Speed and Direction (Set and Drift, or VDR)

I just uploaded a new version (and documentation) to Ricks file thingie

Wind barb display on chart is corrected:
  • Barbs up to 45 knots now (30 kts max 3 barbs before)
  • steps corrected
  • it takes the calculated TWS/TWD data now, if calculation is forced.
I included a history table at the end of the documentation, with the changes.
The current plugin dll refers to pdf Rev 1.2
