Re: WeatherFax...

Taarnskov Is should be possible. Find the xml file in data folder which has this info. Then duplicate a record format and send it to me. I can then add it.

Re: WeatherFax...

Okay, it did compile using Opencpn.lib v3.3.1824.
I will upload this exe install to file thingie later.

I have tried the internet connection and it is absolutely the coolest thing going! Instant wx info at your fingertips! Awesome. People have got to try this and really experience it. Give it a test and let us know what you find please, Sean really wants to release this plugin, and I think it is working but have not exercised it completely because there is a lot to it and I have not had time, but I have been into most all of it at least a dozen times or more, but have not worked with this version extensively yet. We need some guys to do this now!!!

I will post the install exe next to Opencpn Beta File Thingie rguser rgpass
Look in 3.3.1824

Here are the internet file download pics, awesome and easy.
From here you can interpolate them to overlay on opencpn charts....

Re: WeatherFax...

Sean, just had a chance to delete wxfax and do a git clone.
there are just two errors, which appear to be the same with opencpn.lib v3.2 and v3.3.1824

Re: WeatherFax...

I am aware of the problem. I get the same error when compiling with mingw so I can solve it.

Rick,

With internet retrieval, when you load a file.. does it try to calibrate it every time? It should appear on the chart automatically as I have already calibrated all the urls in the database. If not, it is not finding the CoordinateSets.xml file which should be installed when the plugin is installed.

Re: WeatherFax...

The plugin should now (hopefully) compile for version 3.2+

Re: WeatherFax...

Ok Sean, have git pulled.
===

To get opencpn.lib version 3.2.2 (most stable v3.2) of opencpn.lib
I did the following:
https://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN/releases
on May 7, 2013 opencpn-3.2.2 … 0c4bcc9

git checkout 0c4bcc9
Head is not at 0c4bcc9 3.2.2

git branch -v
* no branch 0c4bcc9 3.2.2
master 3ef3142
opencpn-3.2.0 cf69568 3.2.0

git checkout -b opencpn-3.2.2
cd build
cmake ..
cmake --build .
cmake --build . --config release

then search on opencpn.lib and find two
C:\Data-Dart\Up-Soft\Navigation\opencpn-git2\build\release
C:\Data-Dart\Up-Soft\Navigation\opencpn-git2\build\debug
both the same 59kb
copy one to opencpn-lib folder

checkout master

Also did the same for
git checkout -b opencpn-3.2.0
Have included this opencpn-3-2.lib too, but they appear to be the same size.

=========

Then used opencpn-3-2-2.lib to compile weatherfax.
It compiled fine no errors no warnings.

Tried in Opencpn 3.2.0 and it froze when the image file was retrieved, so maybe I have to try it in Opencpn 3.2.2 to have it work properly....!!!

Also tried in Opencpn 3.3.1824 and it works.

Have uploaded to Opencpn Beta File Thingie rguser, rgpass

Re: WeatherFax...

Have tried with the downloaded version of 3.2.2 and it freezes the screen and bombs O after download of the internet retrieval file, when it tries to display the file.

Will try in MSVC debug

I think the most recent compiled weatherfax, seems to have a smaller set of selections for the xml file. -Could you check it?

Also you may have seen this from NOAA
Index of /pub/fax

also this notice

Re: WeatherFax...

Sean, should we just call Weatherfax an Opencpn 3.3.1824 plugin and use that opencpn.lib to make this simpler?

I suppose I could git checkout opencpn 3.2.2 and then run MSVC in debug with the weatherfax.dll from debug....
