Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

I am trying to use the weather routing plugin (latest version downloaded from the main site ) on OpenCPN 4.4.0 on Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

Every time I try to load the plugin OpenCPN become unresponsive. It seems to hang on loading the Climatology plugin.

So then I tried to just load the Climatology plugin and, again, the system become non-responsive at about 95% completion - it shows Cyclone Cache and goes not further. I cannot even shut down the program.

I tried reinstalling the climatology plugin. That didn't work.

any other suggestions?

--------------------

On a second point, I have a question about how the Polar plugin generates polars from live NMEA data. Does it keep a running average for each wind/speed combo? I.e. does the polar become progressively smoother as it reads in more and more data? At the moment, after a 52 hours sail, my polar looks pretty raggedy - some big spikes in speed (from surfing waves presumably) that, I would have thought, should have got averaged out by other data (eg riding UP the wave).

Otherwise, how does one go about developing a smooth polar?

Thanks

Noel

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

I believe I fixed the problem with climatology. It was specific to windows, but perhaps you must build from source?


I did not author the polar plugin, but the weather routing plugin can in theory also generate polars from nmea data. This feature is untested so feedback is appreciated.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Hello Sean, just came across an issue with the status bar plugin.

The bearing cursor to ship can only be displayed as True, is there a way to display it as Magnetic?

Thanks Peter

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

are you actually using %K?

I never had heading data available in opencpn. Do you want magnetic heading from a compass, or is it calculated based on declination from the magnetic model?

I do have magnetic heading available as signalk but haven't tried to get the data into opencpn yet.

Probably not explaining myself very well. It is the bearing from the vessel to the cursor. In the default settings this is %W which is "True" is there a way to make this magnetic?

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

From what I can tell it doesn't support magnetic bearing, but I could add this.

It would be a nice feature, especially if all the other OPCN settings are magnetic.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins ... Weather Routing

Weather Routing:

Using menu option "delete position" does not remove the item from the positions list, only the list displayed. This results in the position reappearing when OpenCPN is restarted.

Code in the function OnDeletePosition needs amending (I think) as follows:

wxListItem it;
it.SetId(index);
it.SetColumn(0);
it.SetMask(wxLIST_MASK_TEXT); // Note use of the mask
m_lPositions->GetItem(it);
wxString name = it.GetText();

FlySpray item #2173 refers.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

I made the change now in git, I think it's only needed for windows, so it's really a wx bug.

Lightbulb Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Hi, I just upgraded my mac from Snow Leopard to Sierra and have been updating Open CPN and the plugins I am familiar with. I have a problem with the Climatology plugin and get the message "The operation couldn't be completed. (com.apple.installer.pagecontroller error -1.) Couldn't open "climatology-{plugin_1.2.pkg". Any suggestions?http://www.cruisersforum.com/images/.../whistling.gif
