Getting the same lines on Samsung Galaxy S4. v4.4.2 with the latest .46 client.

Hi everyone!

I'm sorry I didn't check the forum earlier. I have now reverted most of the updates of the 0.46 release and published a 0.47 release and I hope this one will work better on 4.4.2 devices. Please keep me informed here.
Again I'm sorry I screwed up the 0.46 release for some of you. I only have my own old Galaxy S III to test on and it worked fine on that one. I will try to get hold of an 4.4.2 device to test on and hopefully the weather loading optimizations will be back again later.

I had the exact same problems with 0.45 as Marcelo Vall on my SGS2 running Android 4.1.2. That is, a crash 2-5 seconds after starting the app. I tried to start it lots of times but the exact same thing happened every time except ones or twice when I managed to get it to start.

On the other hand, 0.46 is working beautifully on my device. I haven't dared to try 0.47 as I fear the problems from 0.45 may come back.

I just got my old S III updated with Android 4.4.4 and it work perfectly with the 0.46 version. So I don't know it must be somthing specific to 4.4.2 and it would help a lot if anyone of you who had the problems with the 0.46 version could tell me if 0.47 worked better.
Tested v 0.47 with 4.4.2 this morning and still had problems with the lines. I'll try to grab a screenshot and post it here.
HI Zappe,
.47 client just uploaded, and still have the same purple lines. :(
Tried a few settings like reducing the wind line settings. It didn't help.

Here is a screenshot from my LG G 8.3 tablet.
I have plenty more.
I tried using different maps, but the problem remains.
Some points:
-- When logging in to the race, the initial screen is "usually" free of the lines. I want to say "always" free of them, but I can't remember if that is true.
-- The pattern of the lines changes when I change the display zoom.
-- The lines are a problem only with the Race Map view. Other screen display properly.

I get similar results with my LG VS 985 4G phone.
Both devices are running Android 4.2.2. with the status of "official".
Both devices connect through Verizon, and were purchased through the Verizon store.

Let me know if you need additional data about what I am experiencing.
I have the "notify me" box checked for this thread, so posting here should get the word to me.

javajkeda or someone else could you try the old 0.45 release again just to verify that it still works?

You can get access to all versions from my dropbox:

I have made two new apk files (0.47.1 and 0.47.2) that you can find at the drop box. They are versions of 0.47 with different changes from the 0.45 release. So if you who have the problems with the 0.47 and 0.46 release can test these versions and tell me if any of them work it would help a lot. It is probably best that you uninstall the client between tries to make sure you try the right thing.
Installed v0.45 from the dropbox and it works like a champ! In the process I learned how to uninstall an app. [I'm new to Android as of last Tuesday.]

I'll try the other two apk's next ... keeping in mind that it is 3:09 am local here, and I may need to get a little sleep first.

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
