Board » Technical Support » Bug in the B6 Leopard Client?

Twice since the start of todays race I have found myself pointing Head to Wind, going nowhere. I have not clicked on the game or sent a command. I have switched workspaces in Leopard and come back to the client to find it has turned me head to wind.

I guess somehting I am working on in a different workspace is being transmitted to the client

This is frustrating and if it continues I will have to abandon. I was comfortably in 1st place the first time it happened and lost 20 places.

It just cost me another 40 places

We've heard this bug before and have no explanation for it. Lately it has crossed our minds that maybe the application receives input even though it's not in active? Do you think this could explain the behaviour. It's hard for us, because on the server side it looks like the client has sent a normal TWA command (=0.0), and we cannot recreate it. Also, since the majority of users seems unaffected, it could be caused by a certain combination with other software.

Try shutting the application down when not having it in the foreground and see if it helps. If it does, please report back so I can follow this up.

I had it twice yesterday and not at all today. All that I can think is that using Leopard workspaces, some key commands I am giving to other software in another workspace are being transmitted to the B6 client causing it to turn my boat HTW

I had it too once during friday, but using Tiger. Not using any program for other workspaces. I was switching between sailonline and Safari. The TWA box was not set to 0 but some other number (quite sure since i just pressed the send command button to start sailing again.). Could not think about any reason for it to happen.

Sinbad Seeks Spices 2023
Having surveyed Arabia, Sinbad Al-SOL’er next invites you to race him on his second of seven epic voyages to every corner of the Indian Ocean and beyond, this time to seek spices in Zanzibar, departing from Xaafun, a trading post on the tip of the Horn of Africa since the days of the Mycenaeans and on through Roman times to the Nights of 1,001 of AL-Sail’or, Al-SOL’er’s illustrious ancestor. SOLing by the sun and the stars, aka seat-of-the-pants, the voyage will take you east as far as Praslin island, south as far as Anjouan, to Zanzibar’s Unguja for all things spices, but only back as far as Mogidishu – another exhausting 3000nm adventure, this time in Reichel/Pugh 66s.
