Board » Technical Support » Enabling Flash player on an Android tablet

I'm having a problem getting Flash for my tablet, without which of course I can't see the race. The Adobe site won't download the player - any suggestions please?

It may be that the HTML5-based client that is currently under testing would run just fine on your tablet's browser. You can try it out by replacing "windy" in the client's URL with "breezy" but be aware that there are some minor UI changes compared with the Flash client (such as non-zero TWA steering always requires sign).

I have noted a few irregularities in the HTML5 client, and hope they can be repaired. It is hard to break the habits of years---for instance, centering any point on the screen now requires 3 clicks, rather than 2. The actuation of a course choice needs 2 not 1 clicks. Stopping the boat at a start/finish line requires the entry of TWA = (0) not (0.00000) or (0.) Realizing some entry hasn't worked as expected can make for mistakes that are very frustrating....
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.

Can you please try ?version=dev. ...Go into Setting, enabled "Show diagnostics" and "Extra diagnostics".

Then open up diag tab and double click to center map. The diagnostics printouts should now have a few lines with "uimode:" in them (you might have to scroll to the end unless you've just started the client). I'd be interested know the uimode event sequence you see there.

You can repeat the same for the course choice (assuming it you refer to steer tool rather than the set boat course button which would is unrelated to uimodes).
