Offset in the daily rain value

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

Actually VPrainGaugeType=1 is not in the cumulus ini page. If you take a look closely you have to go here https://cumuluswiki.wxforum.net/a/Cumulus_MX in the A note to davis owners section to find it. What's present in the ini is DavisRainCollectorModel=X which does not seem to work with cumulus mx.

But values are now fine. This entry in the ini seems to have corrected the situation. Thanks for your help.

Ah, the DavisRainCollectorModel is for Cumulus 1 only - if you follow the link to the CumulusMX ini file page it is documented there.

I wasn't aware of the change in parameter name between v1 and MX, I'll add it to the "things to change on migration" page as well.
EDIT: It was already there.


A big effort but we probably need to reorganise the Wiki and make all the MX information "current version" and make the v1 specific stuff "legacy"
