  • AGL Fix for some waypoints not flowing through to qtVlm
    Board » Technical Discussion
    I've released a new version (3.2.1) that remaps the extended ASCII character set to the standard character set recognised by NMEA. e.g. Æ will map to AE, ø will map to o and so on. Follow the link from the previous release to get the new one.

    Hi Kipper.
    Is it possible to turn off/on your own trace on the graphical path map?
    Not at this stage. Why the need?
  • NMEA Fix in AGL
    Board » Technical Support
    I've released a new version of AGL (3.2.1) that remaps the extended ASCII set to the standard ASCII set. This version will fix the problem permanently.

    Thank you Andrew for the update. Just a question, the font size is smaller, there is a way to change it in the AGL settings? See the file.

    Read the user manual and release notes!

    Probably NMEA does not like "ö" and similar strange characters
    Correct. NMEA standard only allows the standard ASCII set. The extended character set is not supported. This has been raised before with the SOL race constructors not to use the extended character set in waypoint names, as they are not supported.

    Version 3.2.0 is now available which has several enhancements and must be installed by all qtVlm users. The change allows qtVlm to filter out SOL AIS data and not send fake data to AISHUB.

    If you have set up AGL correctly in the past according to the install instructions, you should only have to download put AutoGribLoader 3 2 0.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.

    The user manual has also been updated with the new functionality descriptions.

    Hello ... I reply my previous request ... Does anyone know how to load in QtVLM, the coordinates of the WPs exposed in chart and info of Brainaid automatically ... ???? Thank you
    In qtVlm under Configurations/NMEA Connections, make sure "Treat RMB messages(WP)" is checked. If the waypoint information is sent in the NMEA feed, qtVlm will then load them. If it is not checked, they are ignored.
  • 5.9.3 patch1 reproducible crash
    Board » Technical Support
    Hi guys,
    I encountered a bug which I can reproduce with the attached NMEA feed file. To reproduce, do the following.
    1. Setup the NMEA feed to use the file
    2. Start NMEA
    3. Once the boat has started moving, you should now notice an erroneous trace line extending from the boat to the top left hand corner of the screen. If not, pan the screen.
    4. Zoom and pan a few times. This action causes the crash.
    5. Turn the NMEA feed off, and you can zoom and pan with no issues.

    The erroneous trace shows irrespective of if traces are displayed or not (I tried turning display traces off to see if it made a difference)

    I suspect it may be caused by the 180E/W issue, as we have just crossed 180E (180W).

    Please let me know if you need any addition information or data.

    Thanks
    Andrew
