Load the file in another grib viewer (zygrib, adrena, opencpn, squid, whatever) to check if it is correct or not.
Good morning Philippe.

Yesterday I've made the sugested test with zxyGrib on two consecutive WRF gribs and got the same problem: only a 24 hr period.
I'll have a go with Adrena and open, and be back after.
Sail Fair.
Then the problem is not in qtVlm, but in the grib file itself...
Ok, back.
And the news are not good.

Both Adrena and openCPN have the same problema: they can't load the WRF Grib file to full extent.

If the common denominator is the GRIB file, the problem is there.

I'll contact Eddie / "brainaid" with c/c to Huib.

Thank you Philippe.
Sail Fair.
Except that for me, it's a good news ;)
Viva all.

I'm having an issue in the "Import" qT routes using a "*.json" file format previously exported from qT (with the same format).

It doesn't work.

Post annotated by kroppyer-admin :
sol's display name was changed to glenan by someone (now reverted). You were logged on as sol when you posted.
What is happening?
The previous post (the json file import issue) was made by me (psail), not glenan!?!
Sail Fair.
Ok, fixed, thanks for reporting it.

We are almost ready to release qtVlm 5.4.0. Maybe you want to give it a try and check that nothing is broken concerning SOL?

There is a beta version for windows available here:

Hi Philippe.
For your information I have just posted this in the english chatrooms of the present ongoing races, The Valletta sprint and the RTWR 2016:

Lac Manicouagan Ice Race 2024

Back in 2013, SOLer FR_cirrus introduced us to the meteor-impact crater lake of Manicouagan in northern Quebec province, at 100km diameter the 5th largest such geological feature on the planet. We speculated then that the impact was perhaps the one responsible for the dinosaur extinction, but at 215m years ago that is wrong, and generally that result is attributed to the 65m year old Chicxulub impact on the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. Last time, we raced the 138nm ‘rond la lac’ in Platu 25s, but it’s winter and there’s ice, so let’s take our no-performance-loss so no-holds-barred DNs instead, and get back indoors quickly.
