The NMEA sentences for waypoints only support the standard ASCII character set, and as a result, qtVlm is ignoring those that do not conform. A work around is to edit the race info xml file. Do the following.
1. Shut down AGL and qtVlm.
2. Open auth_raceinfo_1185.xml in the SOLGribxml folder with a text editor.
3. Look for the waypoint <name> lines with special characters e.g.

<waypoint>
<order>2</order>
<name>Villösan</name>

4. Replace the ö with and o e.g,

<waypoint>
<order>2</order>
<name>Villosan</name>

5. Repeat for all special characters in waypoint names.

6. Save the changes
7. Restart AGL and make sure Monitor Race Messages is not checked (or your changes will be overwritten)
8. Restart qtVlm and connect.
Version 3.1.3 is now available which fixes grib extents issue with the X2X race.

If you have set up AGL correctly in the past according to the install instructions, you should only have to download put AutoGribLoader 3 1 3.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.
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.
Thank you Andrew for the update. Just a question, the font size is smaller, there is a way to change it in the AGL settings? See the file.

EDIT: I've installed in a different computer and the font size is smaller as well

Hi Kipper.
Is it possible to turn off/on your own trace on the graphical path map?
Hi Kipper.
Is it possible to turn off/on your own trace on the graphical path map?
Not at this stage. Why the need?
I've released a new version (3.2.1) that remaps the extended ASCII character set to the standard character set recognised by NMEA. e.g. Æ will map to AE, ø will map to o and so on. Follow the link from the previous release to get the new one.

No need as such. It just would be nice to have the choice :-)

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!

St Nazaire Chasse TIMED Race 2024

Welcome to a "chasse" (hunt) from St. Nazaire to La Baule on the west coast of France! This race was designed by SOLer FR_flouflou in 2010. The KER 40 was introduced to SOL in 2016 by SOLer psail, and the Sol-KER was a welcome addition to SOL’s fleet of 40- footers, as it was to the IRL Ker fleet of eponymous - like KERonimo, KukuKERchu and Ice BreaKER. 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.
