Sydney Hobart - Perp.Loyal protests W.Oats XI

You may have noted that Perpetual Loyal (PL) flew a protest flag at around 22min after the start of the 2013 Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. I suspect that this was due to a luffing incident just before the first mark. This may be a mute point as I have read that Perpetual Loyal subsequently with...

AC72 - sail and helm trimming guide

As this boat is designed to be sailed using manual trim it would be great if some experienced skippers could share the technique for Gen and Spi on each point of sail. I am told that maintaining HEEL between 8 and 10 is the goal and an AWA at 17 or so but I am sure there is more to it than that. The...

satisfactory workaround

I have not solved the Windows 8 PixelGetColor problem per-se but have found that tweaking Compatibility Mode for both AutoHotKey.exe and Vsk5.exe to use Windows Vista results in the desired behaviour without any sacrifice to graphics quality. C:\Program Files\AutoHotkey\AutoHotkey.exe C:\Program Fil...

AutoHotKey PixelGetColor fails in Windows 8 full screen mode

Is anyone successfully using PixelGetColor in an AHK script while their game is running in full screen mode? Earlier this year I gave up my WinXP environment on a more than 10 year old laptop for a Windows 8 environment on a contemporary laptop. Whilst it has been much nicer graphics experience I fi...

I agree with Admiral re timeliness of echoing rules to chat. See also http://vsk.wikia.com/wiki/AutoHotkey#Hotstring_palette However your application is for auto hosting so I can understand why periodic echoing of rules makes the most sense. 1. Periodically executing some subroutine can be achieved ...

Am I the only one that noticed that spectators and players waiting for next race gets a DNF for the active race? I am using the patched version of VSK5 that generates result_date_time.xml files. I checked for this last night and I am not seeing what you have reported. Here is what I can observe. A ...

For what it's worth I also agree with Outspan that such a "Kick all non-finished boats" button would be a valuable addition. I'm just wondering if we should not be thinking about what else would enhance the autohost experience without creating too huge a burden for further software develop...

The chances are you have done everything correctly with your router but have forgotten to tell your software firewall to allow the VSK application.

Good luck.

Re: Different Pre-Start Model Pro-active downloading of boat skins I have also wondered if there is a good reason why boat skins should not start downloading from other players even while in that pre- pre-start "elevated in the sky" view. (Obviously the skins are not yet needed to render t...

Is the AH programm able to capture numeric data from the VSK interface ? Where there's a will there's a way. When it comes to programming almost anything is possible given enough time and the appropriate motivation. In this case, AHK could be used to periodically capture sections of the GUI and fea...

Once you have the sail trim in the green you keep watch on the Blue wind direction arrow on your compass. As the wind shifts you must decide whether you 'feather' the sail or 'feather' the boat. By 'feather' I mean trim either the sheeting or the steering. If you wait for either the color to change ...

Detecting when the chat window input box is active

Detecting when the chat window input box is active I'd been away from the game for some time and when I started playing again I found that some of my hotkeys and hot strings were firing keystrokes off to the game engine that were doing rather nasty things such as switching my sail trim to manual or...

Effective 6-November-2010 Wikia have forced a new skin on all wikia hosted wikis. That skin seems to be designed to make wikia sites more like a social networking or blog site than the traditional encyclopedia-style view that visitors to wikipedia are accustomed to seeing. Their goals for growing th...

Profound thanks

Thank you Hylis and team for a truly comprehensive response on this matter. I've been inactive for many months and am only catching up today. Having reviewed the XML schema against the wish list I could notice just two priority A items that have been overlooked. (Ref. http://vsk.wikia.com/wiki/Forum...
