|for Windows XP:
and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\
Windows Vista and W7:
C:\Documents and Settings\username\AppData\Local\Temp\
is your Windows user name (see item 1.
in figure above)
1- If you're using Windows in another
language than english, folder names may be translated.
2- The actual files are in folders
(for example: C:\Documents and
Do not include the \plugtmp-XX\
part in cache path. The program will scan all
folders inside Temp
3- Some of these folders are hidden,
so you may not be able to locate them using the
Windows Explorer. To find the files with Windows
Explorer, change the Folder Options to [x]Show
hidden folders and files (this is not
a requirement to use FCI, do it only if you are
curious about the hidden files that programs save
in your disk).
Choose the regatta provider (item 2. in figure). Currently Virtual Regatta and VORG 11-12 are supported.
Check the [x]wind and [x]boat
data options accordingly.
For VORG 11-12 use file mask= plugin-me*
For Virtual Regatta use file mask= plugin-ServiceCaller-*.php
Once FCI is configured, follow these steps each time you load Firefox and VRtool:
1- In Firefox, use key combination Shift-F2 to open httpFox panel. Click [> Start] to activate httpFox. You may close httpFox panel, but keep it activated.
2- In VRTool, after loading the desktop, type Ctrl-I and activate the automatic update (item 3. in the figure). For Virtual Regatta you can import both boat data and winds from game files. For VORG only boat data is supported. In this case you can use either NOAA or vrtoutoulz winds (which are close enough).
For Virtual Regatta, activate automatic update in the game app (VORG app auto updates by default).
Note that in VORG game, vrtool will only start importing boat data 10 minutes after the game load.
This is because the VORG game has two kinds of files: complete and update. VRTool can only read the updates. So wait.
By default, vrtool will import all boats you are following (friends, top 10 and random boats). If you don't like so many boats in your desktop, uncheck some of the boat tracks in vrtool to hide them. Also in VORG, select your own boat track and activate the wind arrow plot, so you can see the wind at your current boat position.
