I cant reply to thread because of error "suspicious activity", so I try reply here:
"The "charts" you are using are crap, nothing to do with OpenCPN."
They should be the same as used by OpenSeaMaps? But they look good in OpenSeaMaps website (and even in the chart downloader site) -- but they looks bad in OpenCPN. Any ideas why?
"You need to be careful criticising OpenCPN around here, a lot of us love that program"
OK you love it but what is wrong here? It should be same maps that openseamaps uses but it looks so bad.
As far as I know you are doing the package management of Plugins etc.
I just updated my nmea-converter pi to version 1.0. There are some translations available on crowdin, but I am not able to update the sourcecode with those potfiles.
Could you please add the translation for me and change the plugin status from beta to 1.0?
many thanks on forehand
I have manage to redo pretty well all the New Zealand tide stations individually and not as sub stations and unfortunately the time showed on the graphic in OpenCpn indicate the time UTC +13:00, which is not correct. It should be the winter time that is NZST and not NZDT. Any idea that what must be change in the zone time of the program? I am using the same file in WTide and it works correctly.
Best regards ad waiting for an answer. Will provide you with part of the file if necessary.
Note:- it is a long file.
I have tried to contact Dave but with no luck. I am struggling with tessellation under windows where it is not working for me at all. Under linux it is fine.
I think there may be something re-writting the screen, but not calling the plugin RenderGLOverlay so that my filled boundaries are not redrawn. At times the boundary points flicker, the rollover popup seems to work only intermittently, and under VirtualBox where I run Win 7 for testing it is VERY sensitive to what I can do with the glu stuff. If I set glPolygonMod to GL_LINE and gluTessProperty GLU_TESS_BOUNDARY_ONLY to GL_TRUE, most of the charts stop rendering. That suggests that somewhere the setup is not being done correctly and that assumptions are being made. I think my plugin may now be breaking these assumptions. I posted an example up on the OCPN-Draw and Boundary stream on the forum, post #179.
Any help you or Dave can give would be great.
I posted a question on the boards a while ago but got no response. Thought I would go directly to the source and ask.
I accidentally unselected Toggle Tracking on openCPN and didn't realize until i put the anchor down. Is it possible to use LogBookExtractor to rebuild a track? I have tried and it gives me an error message that reads: Unhandled exception... Object reference not set to an instance of an object"
Thanks for any help!
Hoping you can help me out on understanding whether OpenCPN is the correct choice for me.
Quick background - USCG 50-ton captain with a fair amount of blue water experience. Am planning to "head south" in the fall with an eye toward heading West for a possible circumnavigation.
I have a Garmin chartplotter and want a tablet or pc-based chartplotting software. Currently have iNavX on an iPad, but haven't really used it much yet.
I want something that displays raster charts and makes it easy to purchase and install them in remote locations (with a wi-fi or G4 connection) and offers basic route planning and weather routing for rumb line and great circle routes.
I profess that I am not even entirely clear as to what OpenCPN offers or what it offers vis-a-vis iNavX. I have googled several times trying to find a primer in one of the yachting magazines, but have not come up with much that's helpful.
I'm sure you have thoughts on the subject. Would love to hear them!
