Board » Technical Support » Colour of boat track and size of the time marker

The boat track in both the COG and TWA is the same colour which is dull blueish-black, and the time balls on the two tracks are both small and red. The one chosen used to be a lot larger. I can find no button in the Misc. Settings panel to change this. Has the SOL system for this function been changed?
p.s.Thank you! The problem had corrected as soon as I went bask to the race screen.

If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
While I don't fully follow what you refer with what, the predictor color could be changed through settings. In my own terminology "track" would refer past track and "predictor" refers to predicted future positions.

The problem kind of sounds like you had something to occur for your DC-aware predictor. If it is enabled, COG & TWA predictors are dull colored and only the DC-aware predictor should be the bright one. The DC-aware predictor can visually seem "disappear" e.g. when you add TWA=0 DC (because the boat remains stationary from that point on). It's kind of counterintuitive. ...I can imagine this condition occuring e.g. when nearing PR's finish line. Is it relevant to your case?

A bug in the predictor calculation is of course also possible but without screenshot or some other evidence it's a bit hard to fathom the cause.

Another unintuitive DC-aware predictor trap occurs when one has DCs in future and BBQes. The bright track will keep showing the course after the next DC so there might be no visual change in the bright predictor that would alert to the problem.

Thanks, ij. The problem appears to have been in my own computer, as it righted itself when I changed screens and then went back to the original. Why this should have occurred is beyond my knowledge of programming

Shetland Winter Race 2022
A-OI!!! The cry should soon be ringing out in the streets of Lerwick as the Guizer Jarl and his crew, along with the other teams in the Up Helly Aa parade complete their preparations for the biggest fire festival in Europe. While Shetland continues to manage #COVID19 well, Up Helly Aa has been cancelled but this won't stop SOLers racing their Elan 410s this 383nm course from Aberdeen to be sociable in Lerwick Harbour. SAILING NOTE: Gruney may be approached from any direction but must be passed for rounding purposes as indicated on the chart.
