Ok, it is a mac issue. I fixed it but I am waiting for someone to tell me if the patched windows version still has the problems reported by JB

Viva Philippe, Huib and all.

Good morning.

I've just installed the qtvlm_setup_5.4.2-patch.

The issue with the “exit crash” is solved.
The other issue, the GPS status blank windows remains - pls see attached pic.

Thank you Philippe.
Sail Fair.

I tested with a SOL boat connected to brainaid nmea interface. No problem to see satellites status here, so it's either filtered somehow for you or this race does not have this information, I don' know.

I tested on race 992.

I will post the other platforms now. That includes the fix for the date column display problem on macos.

I’ve just tried the OpenTopoMaps and my first impression … I like it, in spite of:

1 - Some delay on the GPS activation once you choose this map offline option;
2 - Some GRIB ”washing” - pls see attached pic.
Sail Fair.
Philippe, same race here for the test: 992 and using the:

1 - SOL boat;
2 - "autoGribLoader 2 5 0.jar", namely, for connections.

Let me have a test with the brainaid NMEA connection.
Sail Fair.
Not much I can do about it, I cannot make the sea transparent in opentopomap (too many colors used). So I can only display the grib on to of it with some transparency (that you can tune yourself).

Some people also do not draw any colored background for the grib in that case and keep only winds arrows.

A matter of taste...
Nope Phillipe, it dosen't depend on the connection (brainaid or autoGribLoader).

The GPS status remains....dead blank, something that in previous qT versions didn't happened as soon as you establish that connection.
Sail Fair.

I've managed to turn good the GPS status window.

Problema solved.

Now I've to find out what was happening here.

Thank you for your feed.

P.S.: The "maps" is really a matter of taste.
Sail Fair.
FYI: I got an Segmentation fault when I changed from 5.4.1 to 5.4.2 on my linux system.

Deleting the .qtVlm directory in my homefolder solved the problem.
Yes I know the case (I think). I am waiting a bit to push patch1 on linux due to anotherlinux-specific small issue I am trying to fix as well.

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.
