Re: Plugin Threads (List)

There are recent dlls for:
Grib_Enhancements grib-e<version>_pi.dll
NEW_GRIB grib-p<version>_pi.dll

Try them both out. They have different features. The authors, Sean and Jean Pierre are talking about merging them, but we need them both tested. Please report findings on respective threads. Thanks. - By the way, I am naming these as shown above to eliminate confusion. Cahnge to .doc in plugin directory if you don't want it to show up.

WMM World Magnetic Model
Sean has updated this so the chart plots now.

Re: Plugin Threads (List)

Summary: Most current DLL's & Status:

WMM_pi.dll Sean (boat_alexandra) and Pavel (Nohal)
Calculation_pi.dll SaltyPaws
Celestial_Navigation_pi.dll Sean (boat_alexandra)
WeatherFax_pi.dll Sean (boat_alexandra)
Grib_ep4_pi.dll Jean Pierre (Ptizef) and Sean (boat_alexandra)

These are pretty much complete for this round I think.

Celestial_Nav has a little bug in Debug mode that does not seem to affect the release version at all. There have been inquiries about advancing an LOP, and some concern about index error being computed. Don't forget Celestial_Nav needs to have 3 files in plugins/celestial_navigation/data -See the link.

Weatherfax's image (jpg, gif, etc) has been tested extensively and we think works great, and the wav side works but may need more testing.

Grib_enhancements/New_grib has been merged, and works fine with two improvements needed.
1. In the Windows version there is a horizontal slider bar where the file name would normally appear.
2. There have been some requests for enabling the selection of grib area, and more types of data for the email attachment, and the possibility of adding additional sources. Also use of ftp download user settings using internet.

A big THANK YOU to Sean, Jean Pierre Pavel, and SaltyPaws for all their hard work and effort. Please give these plugins a try and exercise them!

Re: Plugin Threads (List)

Summary: Most current DLL's & Status:

Post #96 WMM_pi.dll Sean (boat_alexandra) and Pavel (Nohal)
Post #55 Calculation_pi.dll SaltyPaws
Post #109 Celestial_Navigation_pi.dll Sean (boat_alexandra)
Post #351 WeatherFax_pi.dll Sean (boat_alexandra)
Post #106 Grib pi.dll in New Grib thread -Merged -Jean Pierre (Ptizef) and Sean (boat_alexandra)
Post #65 Grib_pi.dll in Grib Enhancements thread -Merged (same as above)
Post #92 Weather_Routing_pi.dll Sean (boat_alexandra)
Post (coming) New_Grib -continued development by Jean Pierre (Ptizef)

These are updated links to the dll and other files. Some of these may have made their way to the download page of Opencpn plugins (more specifically, wmm and the calculator)

We need users to test the merged grib_pi and weather_routing_pi which requires a special opencpn setup.

Weatherfax could also be tested in use, particularly the fax side. The sound side is still being developed but any testing or experience would be helpful to Sean.

Celestial Navigation should also be tested further by some navigators who are experienced with the process.

The merged grib_pi works OK on XP, W7Ultimate and Portable O.

I think it would be helpfull to Opencpn users if the Opencpn website contains the available plugin(s) with some help text added.

Something like PlugIns | Official OpenCPN Homepage and Plugins | Official OpenCPN Homepage?

Re: Plugin Threads (List)

I've updated Opencpn Manual and have added a new writeup for the Weatherfax Plugin here
Plugins | Official OpenCPN Homepage
and here
Weatherfax_Plugin | Official OpenCPN Homepage

For some reason the link under Plugins does not work, but the one lower down does.
