Use bearing zero when calm?
« on: August 04, 2021, 01:27:38 PM »
New user here. I've been playing with some of the station settings common options and turned on Use Bearing Zero When Calm. Okay, now I see what that does. However, now it won't turn off? Tried saving, stopping cumulus and re-starting it several times with no luck. How do I turn this back off?

Hi,
Did you perhaps forget to press [Save] at the bottom.


Mine changes fine if [untick] then [Save], and then back to [tick] [Save].


You can check your Cumulis.ini file for
Code: [Select]
UseZeroBearing=1 or
Code: [Select]
UseZeroBearing=0 with 1 = turned on and 0 = turned off.

Enjoy,
Paul

It is in your \CumulusMX folder \CumulusMX\Cumulus.ini and can be opened by a good text editor.
It has all the settings that you have set through the Dashboard Settings, and will be updated by CMX as you enter new settings and [Save].  It will also be saved whenever you stop CMX, and that will then have current settings for CumulusMX restart.


Some items in Cumulus.ini can be edited by a text editor like Notepad++ and only with CumulusMX stopped, but generally anything that can be done through the Dashboard Editor should be done there to avoid any chance of it being overwritten at a CMX stop.


Enjoy,
Paul

Sorry, I can't help with that at all. 

Posting on Cumulus forum may get you some answer on that.

Enjoy,

It's ok. Been reading up on linux. Definitely appears to be something one needs to have a grasp on to work with cumulus and a raspberry pi.

Thanks Paul
