  • Sailrace Crashing
    Board » Technical Support
    Hi I hope someone can help me,

    Since the start of the Volvo race, sailrace keep on crashing. There is no pattern to it, it will sometimes crash when scrolling around the map, other times the game will just hang when the game is doing nothing. The hang starts with the cursor turning into a cross and all buttons failing to respond, next all the boxes empty and turn white and then the program says that it is not responding and must close. I have had the occasional crash in other races but this is happening all the time.

    I have the same problem on two machines (both using Windows XP SP3)I am using Beta 7.
    Is this happening other people?

    Many thanks

    Hi Everyone.
    I have tried a few things and I have made some progress with the display issue. On my home CRT monitor I have upped the resolution to 1600 x 1200 and this appears to have solved the problem.

    Many thanks

  • Polar Diagram Refreshing very slowly
    Board » Technical Support
    Hi I hope you can help
    When I run SOL on my home PC (Q6600, Nvidia 8800GT - Latest drivers 3Gig of Ram) the polar diagram refreshes very slowly. When i'm trying to do a course change, its almost impossible to do when the Polar diagram is open.
    Has anyone got any suggestions on what I can do to speed the refresh of the polar.
    Many thanks in advance

    OK first I would like to say that I love this game, as you will see from my ranking on the SYC I sail a lot of races. I'm not the best sailor and I have a lot of work and Home commitments, so getting up in the middle of the night is sometimes not an option.
    That is why I think there should be some option to have waypoints (limited number of)to allow mark rounding once during a race at times when it would be inconvenient to be at the computer. I feel that delay commands are a little hit or miss (I can never get them right) I'm also not a programmer, so I have no idea how this would be implemented, but it is something that the game needs

    Thanks for reading

    Hi kalle,
    Just a quick update on the problem. I went to Microsoft update site and manually downloaded many updates that my computers hadn't downloaded. I also found that the Auto updates settings were incorrect within Windows.
    Since I have done this Sailrace is running much better.

    (the only problem i have now is my inability to sail well ;) )

    Hi Kalle
    Thanks for the reply, no I have a Nvidia 8800GT graphics card with the latest drivers.
    It only appears to happen on my main computer (Intel core duo E6300 on an Asus P5B deluxe mainboard)The Computer was overclocked but I have put all settings back to standard and I still have the problem. It works fine on my laptop (Intel core 2 Duo T5500- Nvidia graphics as well.

    I hope this helps

    I have been having a lot of problems with Sailrace continually bugging out. My system is XP(sp2) i'm running the beta 7 version of the game.It will run well for a while and then just stops working and closes down. I have thought that the problem could be that there was an error within Windows, so I have just formatted my drive and reinstalled. The game ran for ablout 3/4 of an hour.

    What can I do to stop this from happening?
    Any suggestions will be apreciated.

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.
