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.

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.

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Point Yacht Club welcomes Sailonline to the 2022 running of the classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. This race is the oldest established international sailing event in South Africa and traditionally starts in the bay of Maputo, the old Portuguese colonial capital of Mozambique and finishes in Durban. Last year, and now again this year, the race was/will be from Durban to East London - circa 250nm in native Cape 31 speed machines.

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
