In the same place.
In the same place.
Hey Kipper.

Could you please insert the link to onedrive instead of writing "In the same place"?
It would make access so much easier, instead of having to go back and locate the link in an earlier post.
Thank you 😉

Hello Kipper

I am new here and still in the learning curve of the tools. Thanks for making and keeping the DC Checker.

I installed the AGL version 3.2.3 in my Windows computer but apparently I cant get any AIS information and also get an incomplete Map when converting the DCs into a graphical path.

Do you have any clue why that could be happening?

Attached two screes shots: 1) the Parameters I have set up and 2) the Path in graphic format.

Thanks much.

Nelson

Hi Nelson,

Those screenshots you included are typical of an older version of Kipper's AGL.

The latest version is at least version 3.2.0 and the appearance is quite different. You can compare as I have used both versions as shown in my race reports.


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.

@Calm
Thank you very much. But the version of AGL I have is the 3-2-3 available on the OneDrive. This is the only one I have ever installed as I am new to this.

Anyhow, doing further research I found out that my Computer is running Intel Gen 3 and does not properly handle OpenGL. This may be the reason I am not getting the full graphics experience.

I moved to a macOS computer and it is working ALMOST fine. It works with all functionalities but, after a while, the DC checker map comes only as an empty gray screen. I have to close and open the AGL again and... voila, it is working fine again. Not sure what is causing this bug but at lesat I have a fully functional AGL now.

Thanks again for your feedback

Fair winds and following seas.


I am having a consistent malfunction when opening the Graphic Interface in the DC Checker.

There is an inconsistent behavior, with the Graphic working when you first start AGL but subsequently only showing a blank screen. For example, if you load the DCs to the server e check them for the first time, you can see them in Graphic form. However, if you change any DCs on the server and refresh the AGL, the odds of having a new graphic interpretation are 40/60.

Any advise or help will be welcome. To avoid confusion, I am running AGL_3_2_3 on a macOS Catalina with JarRsrcLoader.

Thanks much
All, I've put version 4_0_0 up on OneDrive which is available to download in the same place. I have not update the doc yet, but a quick summary of fixes and improvements.
1. Far more reliable with internet outages. Should recover and not hang.
2. Re-organised the Parameters screen, and removed redundant options.
3. Added some command line options to AG.bat to prevent heap size exceptions. You need to replace your current AG.bat with this one.
3. Added Isotachs and wind barbs
4. Added a button next to the DC Set button that allows a DC to be selected and then the isotachs and wind barbs are update to that DC time
5. Simplified DC text and added a DC legend.
6. Moved graphics toolbar into graphics window.
7. Added functionality to prevent DC text overwriting when required.
8. Several other bug fixes.
I am having a consistent malfunction when opening the Graphic Interface in the DC Checker....


SeeU, I really have no idea. I don't have a Mac, so not sure. Couple of things to check.
1. You are running 64 bit Java? If not, switch to that first.
2. Are you running the jar directly, or launching out of a bash shell? If out of a shell, are there any exceptions appearing, and if so, what are they. If you are not launching out of a shell, try that and see if you get any exceptions. They are the key to tracing down the problem.

SoCal 300 2024

Welcome again to your chance to participate virtually in a second race of the California Race Week calendar, SDYC's challenging 243nm (as the seagull flies) SoCal 300 from Santa Barbara to San Diego. With a broad range of boats entered in the real race, virtual SOLers will have a better chance of hanging in there with the IRL fleet in our mighty Melges 40 than in previous years SOLing the Santa Cruz 52!

Mangalia to Sevastopol 2024


This time the Black Sea challenges us in a race on the 360 Nm route from Mangala to Sevastopol. On the way we will also visit Odessa. Watch out for the legendary pirates and their fast battle galleys. Nobody ever found them. Apparently they took them with them to the land and hid them in the forests. Let's hope that our Delphia 47 will be fast enough to escape the chase, otherwise we may end up in captivity.

CA 500 2024


In 2019, the organisers of the California Race Week introduced a new longer distance event for the world’s very largest maxi trimarans in town that year intent on setting new records for the TransPac Ocean Race on its 50th anniversary. This CA 500, 500nm from San Francisco to San Diego, was repeated in 2023, but this year it will be an online only event, as it is a lot more straightforward to get a fleet of Maxi trimarans out on the virtual water, than in real life.

Capt Anderson's Resupply TIMED Race 2024

Welcome back to the Pacific Northwest for a race that takes us around the southern end of Vancouver Island and up the west coast as we supply six lights. The leg starts in Victoria, and we sail into the open water of the Salish Sea. After making our way up the west coast we must go up the narrow channel to restock in Port Alberni. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

Neumayer Station to Biscoe Wharf 2024

It’s Autumn now in Antarctica, the sun is permanently below the horizon, but during the day, from c 0900 to c 1700 local time, there is some twilight – nautical twilight, not to be confused with civil twilight which is brighter. The penguins are starting to huddle together to keep warm and the sea ice is growing. Time to get back to Biscoe Wharf then, before the water becomes impassible. Including a detour past Argentina’s main two Antarctic stations, it’s only 1900nm, so, although we’ll be in a hurry, we will take the bigger, better ice-classed Paratii 2 once more, just to be sure!
