Monitor boat position & call virtual sailor weather router
VR Dashboard allows automated transfer of your boat position(s) from a third-party online regatta game to the zezo.org virtual sailor weather router.
In addition, it
- logs your boat position and other boat and race parameters
- displays infos about your friends and opponent's boats
- logs raw messages
1) Install the extension
2) Go to the game home page
3) Click the Z extension icon in the toolbar
4) DO NOT close the debugger warning banner
5) Enter a race to force update of boat position
The router is called automatically.
6) Wait few minutes to get tabs populated with new data
How to deal with the debugging banner:
It can be disabled, but that may not be good idea from privacy/security standpoint. Not because we'll steal your data, but because some other extension you install could do it!
Ideally you should be running second Chrome instance (or Opera with "Download Chrome Extension" installed) and only disable the warning there.
To disable the warning go to chrome://flags/#silent-debugger-extension-api
