Missing Rainfall

Post by mcpaton » Wed Jan 07, 2009 12:30 am

Hi

I seem to have lost almost all my rainfall for this year in the Current Conditions screen, yet it is still viewable in the Graphs. Any idea how to get it back? I was hoping to get a whole years worth of data into Cumulus...

Thanks

The rain total for this year is calculated from the daily totals in dayfile.txt at startup, then maintained during the day with the rain so far. So it sounds like a problem with your dayfile.txt. Attach it here and I'll have a look.

There's a blank line where 8/12 should be, which will be causing the rest of the file to be ignored. Remove the blank line and restart and all should be well.

Thanks, that's done it. Not sure where the blank line came from though...
