Re: Tactics Plugin

😁👍 ... like mine: was easier to install than thought.

Maybe this method of making it run in raspberry/openplotter should be made part of the manual or of the readme.txt?

Just build v1.0008 for Mac.
You can find it here: https://github.com/ptulp/tactics_pi/releases
Documentation here: https://github.com/tom-/tactics_pi/b...tactics_pi.pdf

Oops there seems to be a typo in there.

Re: Tactics Plugin

The web site indicates that there is no Linux version.
I have packaged and built tactics for Linux OpenSUSE.
It's still in my sandbox with 4.8.8 (weatherrouting and wetherfax are not building :-(
I will do a dew test but if it confirms its stability, I will add it to OpenSUSE release.
likely at the same time that I upgrade officially 4.8.8 from a community package to experimental.

My strategy with OpenSUSE, is to install all working plugin by default in a 1 click install (works only from Firefox).
https://software.opensuse.org/package/OpenCPN-4.x

Seems nice, but requires a bit of investigation.
Thanks for the code.

Re: Tactics Plugin

Dominig,
That is great, lets try to get wx_routing and wxfax. How can I help?

Re: Tactics Plugin

Good Morning

the issue with weather routing and weather fax are a compilation error.
I have create bugs in Github but I guess that Sean is out at sea because I had no return in 2 weeks.
The breaking change has been marked as done for Android and I do not want to revert it without Sean advise.
https://github.com/seandepagnier/wea..._pi/issues/236

I also notivce that Didier (did-g) is very active on the project but he has not done that correction either.

Re: Tactics Plugin

Hello all!

I am experiencing a problem with the saving of config-data for the tactics_pi.

None of the 4 settings below are saved.
1) Show Laylines
2) Show Current
3) Show Windbarb
4) Show Polar

I have started debugging this and it seams as if the plugin reads the config-data from the .ini file correct but does not save it.

Is this a known bug or am I doing something stupid ?

I am using Opencpn v 4.8.8 and the plugin seems to be working properly and remembering the settings. I am using "tactics_pi-1.0008-win32.exe".

Please review the Manual once again

Calculate and Display Laylines

Display Polar on Chart

Settings in the ini file


Are you sure about the Opencpn and Tactics plugins being used?
Try saving your opencpn.ini file to a new name and starting up Opencpn again to create a new ini file. Then try the settings.

Reading the manual I see that it does not specifically say that the choices I am referring to are saved. What is saved are the choices you make under preferences.
I had assumed that this also applied to the variables I mentioned.
I am not fully content with the behavior.
If you normally, for instance do not want laylines, either you need to disable them every time you start OpenCPN or enter preferences when you do want them and then again disable them there. This is not optimal in my opinion.

Re: Tactics Plugin

Hans, I get your point now. Would you make a detailed Tracker request for Thomas to consider? It is a Feature Request and should be in Tactics_pi. Thanks

Thank you very much Canne for your heel sensor stuff. It worked great for me even without any previous experience with microcomputers. Intel gave up on the Arduino/Genuino and I found none on the market but there are still stocks of CurieNano available but who knows for how long. It took me some hours to get up to speed with the Arduino environment, but then it was just "plug and play", guided by the graphial interface. I gave up on making PUTTY work for me. The serial console of the Arduino environment was much more intuitive for a beginner. Your software got a few compiler warnings about syntax which I generously ignored and that was it. The CurieNano actually has some advantages over the original for this project. It is more compact and includes a 3 axis compass sensor on board, which would allow making a 9 axis device. They cost 36$ out of China, but I bought mine for 52€ in Germany. You can find much cheaper HW than that, but the availability of your SW made the deal for me. I had a hard look at the code and documentation before going for it, as well as your other contribution on the Forum and your professional background ..... simply impressive.

Here is my "nano-version"






If somebody wants a copy, you need Cannes Software and one piece each:

  1. CurieNano
  2. Case: Hammond Electronics 1551USB3CLR (2,95€)
  3. Transparent Micro-USB-cable (Delock) (1,53€)
  4. polished aluminium block ca. 24x12x5 mm.
  5. Neoprene pad ca. 24x12x4 mm.
The opening at the front of the case is for a type A USB-plug, a tiny bit wider than the plastic isolation of the micro B Type plug which connects to the board but 4 mm lower. Making use of the transparency of the plastic isolation I grinded 2 mm deep slits on the top and bottom to fix the plug in place when the case is closed. At the back end of the case the soft pad is glued to the bottom part and above the Curie processor the polished aluminium block is glued to the top, acting both as a heat spreader, as well as pressing the board, which is fixed in the USB plug at the front end lightly onto the soft pad at the back. The heat spreader is luxury. I happened to have the material lying around, but the board could just as well be fixed with another soft pad in the appropriate place.

Re: Tactics Plugin

ISL65 Thank you for the contribution. I will try to add this information and links to the bottom of the wiki. I see you used these for Nmea0183

Rate of turn
$KMROT,-1.5,A*hh (hh=checksum), negative values indicate bow turning to port side.

Pitch and Roll
$KMXDR,A,5.0,,PTCH,A,12.0,,ROLL,*hh (hh=checksum), negative values in pitch indicates bow down, in roll port side.

and you did not use Yaw.

The Opencpn Nmea sentences are below and your bottom sentence appears to conform.
https://opencpn.org/wiki/dokuwiki/do..._sentences#xdr


There are no Rate of Turn values available except in AIS sentences. KMROT is a fabrication and Opencpn will not use it so I don't believe Tactics will either. How do you use that value?
