Kipper
Thanks for coming back to me on this.

To your questions:
1)I am running a 64-bit Java (Version 8-241)
2)I am opening the AGL with the Terminal. Attached the command screen after AGL opens and clicking Apply

Lastly, I am also attaching a print of the screen I get when opening the DC Checker graphical interface. Just flat out gray!

BTW, your software is awesome. The more I get used to it the more I like it.

Thanks
Version 4.0.0 looks really good.

I had all sorts of problems initially but finally got it all sorted. 1st problem was I was using a 32bit instance of Java. Tried the latest 64 bit SDK but no joy. Updated the JRE (runtime environment) and it worked beautifully.

Thanks Kipper. Everyone will enjoy the updated version.
Hi Kipper,
Have loaded 4.0.0 and have following problem.
When converting DCs to Graphic the information at each point does not show Course, Speed TWA etc.
Ah, think I may understand now. My PC does not support OpenGL. That may be it. I can work out what each section of the graphic text means.

I tried Version 4.0.0 on the Mac. It works well other than the Graphic interface that on the new version, always come gray.

Going back to 3.2.3 that at least give me the graphics once in a while.

I have not been getting notifications in this thread, so apologies for no answers.
1. seeU, an exception is being thrown by the low level openGL binding that I use, and I have no idea why. Can you please copy the feedback from the shell, drop it into a file and post here. Secondly, try turning off the openGL engine (on the Parameters tab) and see if you get a different result.

2. Mul, version 4 simplified the DC text. There should be a legend in the bottom right corner to explain what it is. Both versions show the same text. Also, if you are getting the wind isotachs and barbs, openGL is working.
..... 1st problem was I was using a 32bit instance of Java.......
All, it is critical that you run a 64 bit version of Java as dtayls found out. I've posted some instructions on how to check and rectify if necessary.

Verify 64bit Java Installed

I've fixed a few issues discovered today with the Capetown race in Version 4.0.0.0. Version 4.0.0.1 is here

I've speeded up the wind data refresh, fixed the out of bounds errors, added a right click drop down menu in the graphic window and fixed the error with reading the Wx update times.

Secondly, I've added some notes on how to check that you are using 64 bit Java. 32 bit is causing a few people some issues and problems.
New question.
QtVlm is only showing the integer of the TWS on boat instruments. i.e. If the TWS is 4.8 then display is 4.0. If TWS is 5.1 instrument is 5.0.
This does not seem to affect routing except it will show the difference as a correction.
Is the nmea in AGL passing only the integer of TWS or do you think that QtVlm is only reading the integer and is therefore a problem their end?

In Capetown, I'm seeing TWS of 2.6 in qt, AGL and the client. All the same.

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.
