My name is Jim and I'm new to OpenCPN
. So far I've managed to figure it out on my own by reading the OpenCPN
website and the Cruisers Forum. However, I ran into a bug this evening and I don't know how to fix it.
I am running OpenCPN 4.6.1 on Windows 8. Tonight I downloaded the Weatherfax plug-in and tried to download a few files over the internet
. I am able to download files from Passage Weather
with no issues. However, when I try to download files from NOAA I get an error message - "Failed to Download". The software
appears to be looking for the files at http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/fax/"filename".tif
When I go to NOAA's website, the associated files appear to be located at http://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/fax/"file name".tif
The error box says "If the url is incorrect please edit the xml and/or post a bug report" but since I'm a mechanical engineer
, I can't figure out where to "hit it with the hammer to edit the xml"!
Therefore, I'm hoping this post will satisfy the requirements of posting
a bug report.
Please let me know if there is something that I need/should do differntly.
