  • Re: qtVlm thread

    Looks like it's working. The link was missing the .exe which I've updated below.

    Thanks

    It's really weird. The instance I'm using has two routes in it. I set a grib date based on a route waypoint. The first route was fine, and the other wasn't, then they switched (did not change the date). Then they both fine, now switched back again (after about 2 minutes) and then switches again.

    No such problem here, what version are you using on which platform?

    Qt Version 5.8-4
    Windows 10

    It is transient and I think it is related to an NMEA update which appears to fix the logbook. I think it also needs more than one route to reproduce. It will reproduce though by repeating the steps
    1. Set grib date
    2. View route logbook.

    I can get it to reproduce about 50% of the time if NMEA is turned on. It does not reproduce if NMEA is turned off.

    Hope this helps.

  • AWS and AWA goes to zero in route logbook when grib view in the future
    Board » Technical Support
    To reproduce, do the following.
    1. Set grib time to now.
    2. Edit route and check route logbook. AWA and AWS are fine. Close editor.
    3. Select a route waypoint and set grib date, or step forward (I was using 5 min increments)
    3. Edit the route and check route logbook. All AWA's and AWS's are zero

    See screenshots below.

    The zero's then flow into the export.

  • DC Checker Release 3.1.3
    Board » Technical Discussion
    Version 3.1.3 is now available which fixes grib extents issue with the X2X race.

    If you have set up AGL correctly in the past according to the install instructions, you should only have to download put AutoGribLoader 3 1 3.jar in the same folder as the old version (e.g. AutoGribLoader 3 1 2.jar), and then download and run AGVersion.bat. This will cause AG.bat to now use the correct version.

    Both these files are in the root of the OneDrive folder link.
  • Work Around for Akand Sea Waypoints not flowing into qtVlm
    Board » Technical Discussion
    The NMEA sentences for waypoints only support the standard ASCII character set, and as a result, qtVlm is ignoring those that do not conform. A work around is to edit the race info xml file. Do the following.
    1. Shut down AGL and qtVlm.
    2. Open auth_raceinfo_1185.xml in the SOLGribxml folder with a text editor.
    3. Look for the waypoint <name> lines with special characters e.g.

    <waypoint>
    <order>2</order>
    <name>Villösan</name>

    4. Replace the ö with and o e.g,

    <waypoint>
    <order>2</order>
    <name>Villosan</name>

    5. Repeat for all special characters in waypoint names.

    6. Save the changes
    7. Restart AGL and make sure Monitor Race Messages is not checked (or your changes will be overwritten)
    8. Restart qtVlm and connect.
  • $GPWPL NMEA sentences are ignored if there are special characters in WP name
    Board » Technical Support
    These waypoints are not displayed in qtVlm when these NMEA sentences are sent through.

    $GPWPL,5950.057,N,01909.176,E,Villösan*F4
    $GPWPL,6011.224,N,01926.018,E,Töllingarna*92
    $GPWPL,5948.833,N,01947.200,E,Flötjan*87
    $GPWPL,5952.224,N,01905.144,E,Simpnäs Pir*FD

    It appears to be related to the extended character set being used. Remove the ö from the name and it works fine.
  • Re: DC Checker Releases 3.1.2
    Board » Technical Discussion
    In the same place as previous version. This is a patch for the Longship Drake polar.
  • DC Checker Release 3.1.1
    Board » Technical Discussion
    Version 3.1.1 is now available which fixes the rendering and some other issues with Golden Globe leg 2.

    If you have set up AGL correctly in the past according to the install instructions, you should only have to download put AutoGribLoader 3 1 1.jar in the same folder as the old version (e.g. AutoGribLoader 3 1 0.jar), and then download and run AGVersion.bat. This will cause AG.bat to now use the correct version.

    Both these files are in the root of the OneDrive folder link.

  • Changes to DC Checker batch files for Mac and Linux
    Board » Technical Discussion
    I'm not sure why, but underscores are being stripped out. The spaces in autoGribLoader 3 1 1.jar are underscores.

    Also, if these instructions are not quite correct, please update. I don't have a Mac or Linux.

    If someone does get these working, please add to a zip file and upload and I will add to future releases.

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
