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

Yellow Sea Race 2022
There are six seas along the eastern seaboard of mainland Asia. Six seas less travelled by the racing sailor. So, here we go. Six races up and down the Asian coast, plus one in the nearest sea to the Asian mainland of the Indonesian Archipelago, to make it a mythical seven; five to count. And in no particular order, we start with a 2200nm or so race criss-cross through the Yellow Sea in ever-elegant Italia 14.98's.
