Topic: Chat causing loss of control
Posted: Monday, March 25, 2019 1:31:12 PM
It's happened to me several times. They claim it is because something is stealing focus. So I now run a program that shows when focus changes. One of those times it was GeForce Exprience (something like that). So I disabled it. That lowered the number of times it occurs, but it still does. Just going to have to give up on chatting in game. I might have to try windowed mode.

It can be found at

It's 11/8/2018, 8:00:00 PM
US Nightly Soaring 18-meter Cascade Range

Then do as Soarer said.

8? Really? Not the usual 9?

Topic: Condor2nav with Condor2
Posted: Saturday, October 27, 2018 12:13:22 PM
Every time I use Condor2Nav for the southern hemisphere, it just doesn't work in XCsoar correctly. Of course, the version I have is now several months old.

For the directory from Condor 1 landscape to Condor 2, use the MKLINK command.

MKLINK [[/D] | [/H] | [/J]] Link Target

        /D      Creates a directory symbolic link.  Default is a file
                symbolic link.
        /H      Creates a hard link instead of a symbolic link.
        /J      Creates a Directory Junction.
        Link    Specifies the new symbolic link name.
        Target  Specifies the path (relative or absolute) that the new link
                refers to.

mklink /j Yunnan d:\condor2\landscapes\Yunnan

(Had to remove the greater-than and less-than symbols to get this to post from around JUNCTION and DIR).

This way you don't have to copy the directory from V2 to V1 and eat up additional disk space. I deleted my V1 landscapes directory, otherwise I'd have shown examples from that (I have it on a backup external drive).

Topic: Trying to upload FTR file, get error "The file size can't exceed 1MB"

Well. It seems that my 2,252 KB FTR files are just too big. I can't compress them with Winzip to anything less than 1,359 KB.

Of course, this won't matter for today's task, but maybe I can learn how to deal with this before the next one?

I've had the same problem in the past. Never could get it uploaded.

Oh good. I can delete the V1 landscapes (I've copied them all to an external drive, so I have them if needed). That will free up 100 GB of space.

I've done a few Cascades tasks and haven't had issues. I do let my machine auto-update windows patches. Also recently upgraded my graphics driver (and then had to go and uninstall GeForce Experience - it kept stealing focus causing me to get the chat bug).
