Board » General Discussion » Converting a QtVLM route to brainaid DCs

Page: 1 2 3 4 5 Next

Hi all

Thanks to Sebensa I made this last night:

You upload the csv file you can export from QtVLM (menu: Routes->edit route->[your route], then tab:Route details. Adjust settings and click export). It converts it into a set of twa commands and a set of cc commands. You can edit them and copy them to brainaids dc editor.

Don't blindly follow your router! The option to edit the DCs is not for nothing, use it.

If you find any errors, let me know.
Thanks for your effort Krop.
It works 100% as far as I am concerned, what a time saver & no finger trouble anymore..
Thanks kroppyer. It works nicely. BBQ lesson over night so as you say, engage brain at all times, specially when close to coasts possibly because SOL chart is not same as QtVlm chart.
After three days of trial, I am liking what I am seeing. Many thanks.

The export files from the new QtVLM version (5) miss a TWS collumn, causing most other columns to shift to the left. If you use QtVLM v5, use this link (and double check the results):
Hi Kroppyer!

After some time SOTPing, I'm using QTVLM again; but when I export the route csv and then import it in qtvlm route converter I get this message:

ERROR: Time conversion failed, trying to continue. DCs could be wrong.

The tool returns me a list of DC dated 1970!!!

The error message appears after loading csv and pressing "convert to brainaid" button...

Some time ago I was using it correctly... the only difference is a qtvlm update about 1 month ago,,,

Thank you in advance for the help and...
Happy 2016!!
Can you send me the csv file you are uploading? Via the forum or via e-mail (huib <at> this website) is fine.

Here's the qtvlm csv...

Thank you Kroppyer.

The dates in the file are in, I think, Italian or Spannish: 29 dic 2015 13:36. After a search and replace "dic" -> "dec" it works again.

I am not sure what language settings you would need to change in order to save the dates in english, and possibly you don't want to change that setting at all.

I might add some kind of language/translation setting in the converter.

ok, I'll search in the configuration of qtvlm if there's something to change... otherwise I'll try to substitute dic with dec. I'll tell you the result...
for now, thank you again.

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.
