Board » Technical Support » Bug: DC on predictor.

Is this the right place for a bug report on the new client beta?

The orange dot on the predictor line doesn't update when the DC is edited. The dot remains in its original position. If you exit and restart the client the dot no longer appears. I guess it's only placed when the original DC cmd is sent?

Otherwise a truly excellent improvement to the client, thanks.
"- When the time interval is within 6 hours, an orange dot appears on the predictor(s) - accurate to the minute. Use this as a guide only - as always, some caution is advised when using the predictor for either TWA course path, or for position at a future time. Set the delay value back to 0 to remove the orange indicator. "
Yes Sambal is correctly quoting the relevant section. There has been quite some misunderstanding as to this particular addition, so I would just like to clear it up here...

The dot represents the time interval you currently have in the delay input box. It does not represent any DC actually held on the server.
So if you type 1 (or 1h0m) into the delay box, the orange dot will coincide with the 1hour circle on the predictor. If you have 3h12m specified in the delay box, it will show where you will be at that time. Setting this value to 0 removes it altogether.

There are the static 1 hour circles, and 15 minute pips on the predictor - think of this as a pip you can specify the time interval for yourself

Ahh! I understand, thanks Aaron.
I (also) expected the orange dot to stay on place. Eg: when I set a DC to turn around a corner, the dot remains at that place on the predictor-line(s) and I could tweak the time to get a perfect rounding. I found out it just moves along with the predictorline.

Now that I know, it's ok :-)

Cheers, Arthur
