Page: 1 2 3 Next

Just downloaded the new qT version and installed it.
Only worked immediately after the installation.
Now, it keeps crashing every time I try to start the program (Windows 7 Ultimate, X64, yes, with all the updates).
Rolled back to the 5.3.5 patch 1 version.

You are the only one reporting that.. Did you install it in a clean folder and if yes what setting did you changed after the installation?
No it wasn't a clean folder, alias, as all the previously installed qT versions went all for the same folder (“C:\Program Files\qtVlm”) without any problem.
I didn’t change any of the previous version (3.5.1 patch 1) settings.
I’ve just inserted a new setting for the Performance recovery time (it’s a new option in the 3.5.6).
Anyhow, I’ve made a clean install to a new folder (“C:\Program Files\qtVlm1”), losing all my previous qT configs, routes made, barriers and waypoints, where you, as you well know, spend a lot of time implementing. It’s working now.

Thank you Philipe.
Sail Fair.
You can always recover your pois, routes barriers and such by copying poiReal.dat and boatAccReal.dat from one folder to another.

Did you set again the new parameter for tack/gybes penalty and is it ok?
Maybe we should tell QtVlm users where to download it!!!
Here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/qtvlm/
You found a problem indeed. I am generating a patch

The problem is precisely in the “poiReal.dat” file as the new version crashes when I load the one used in the 3.5.1 patch 1 version.
So, exporting from the old version to the new one, via the “qtVlmExport.zip” file, doesn’t work and you lose a lot of the previously made work, as mentioned before.
This problem, as also already suggested, will be solved the day we can generate (exportable/importable/compatible between successive versions) separate files for routes, barriers and waypoints.
The new qT config for the Performance recovery I still have to test it but, it will be difficult to match or get closer to the “SOL formula”, which in my opinion is a mess.

Again, thank you Philipe.
Sail Fair.
This is due to a bug linked to this new parameter and a last minute modification I did, my bad.

A patch will be posted in less than one hour and you will be able to recover your routes, poi, barriers etc.
All qT users will appreciate, Philipe.
Sail Fair.
Patch 1 ready. Can you confirm all is ok this time?

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
