Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Thanks!

Moving the polar file from under the Program Files directory tree to a writable directory solved the problem.

I did move the problematic files & directory to:
C:\ProgramData\opencpn\plugins\weather_routing\dat a\polars
and
C:\ProgramData\opencpn\plugins\weather_routing\dat a\boat.xml

And directed the plugin to these.
However I still get the incompatibility to GRIB version response.
Moreover, the <edit> command acts strange. If I try to amend data in the existing file it warns me about overwriting, however, when I do overwrite, the data in the file does not change.

(latest plugin downloaded from OpenCPN site and OpenCPN 4.4 version).
Running W7/64 OS.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Hi,
The Weather Routing PI for OpenCPN version 4.4 is not yet published on the openCPN site. The WR PI found there works OK with openCPN ver. 4.2

There is a Beta version of the WR PI for 4.4 to be found in:

Opencpn Beta File Thingie (rguser rgpass)

Look in the folder 4.4 PI Win

David

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Well, I have tried the Beta software.
Good and bad news:
1. The program ran. No incompatibility issues.
2. The XML file seems to me still inaccessible. It is in an writable folder where I have moved it according to a.m. advice. I have even amended the data in the file with a file editor. However, the calculation runs with a basic data set which (so it seems to me) resides elsewhere.

e.g. - the setup file comes with a mono boat with 400 sq.ft sails.
I have amended the file to boat type <2> and 800 sq.ft sails. Directed the configuration to this amended file and got results based on boat type <1> and 400 sq.ft sails.
These also are the parameters when I open the file for edit, when directed to my already amended file.
3. The route does not show on the map. I do see the various statistics and route characteristics through the commands of the WR window, but the isochrones and route are not to be seen.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

I suggest using openCPN 4.2 with the WR PI published on openCPN site for the iterim.
I am waiting for the WR PI to be stable for version 4.4 before upgrading openCPN to the latest version

Thanks.
Nothing urgent. I just tried to play around and got stuck. Will wait patiently until all wrinkles are ironed out.
Thanks again!

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Opencpn Win Beta File Thingie rguser rgpass

4.4 WIN PI

New version of
weather_routing_pi-.-ov4.4-cd476a2-improv-error-chk-win32

The boat.xml and polar files must be moved to over to C:/programdata/opencpn/plugins/weatherrouting...etc otherwise there will be a write problem an files will not be found.

This verrsion makes huge improvements to the error codes. Thank you Sean!
It also has a handy little tool to construct a polar from data you enter manually.
It looks like Sean is planning on generating polar files from nmea data or manual entry..

There were about 10 warning for the first run.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

See WeatherRouting_pi in ver 4.4 - Working for anyone?

Weather_routing
needs more testing but works.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Just did a quick test with the new version of WR and it seemed to work OK. Didn't pick up land too well, but that may have been the charts I had loaded, may need to try with some s63 charts and see if that helps. But the routing around boundaries seems to work OK and it is using the new ODAPI, so is much faster.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Jon,

as I understand the PI tests only against the base map, so you should use the large scale one.
Testing against shore (or a given safety depth contour) with vector charts would be great. In the case of S-63 the encryption is an additional handicap here.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

It works much better than the previous beta, but some runs are failing with "Polar: Failed". Any idea where I should start playing to get around this?

My first thought was that your suggest is to overdo it a bit? The land fall alarm would be intended to use for a over sea passage and alarm if you're sleeping over a near to shore situation. For that purpose is the high resolution base map enough.
But - if you're in the Pacific small atolls aren't on that map and soundings on a vector chart would make a difference.
