OSTC 2N : Display Total Run Time ?

Hi,

I want to display in dive mode the Total Run time (Dive Time + TTS).

Is this function/display already coded for OSTC 2N ?


Thanks.

C'est ce que je craignais :-(

Mais une addition en assembleur tout de même... en gérant la bascule "no déco time" / DTR
'ASM c'est pas mon point fort.

On m'a dit que l''affichage du RT existe sur les "nouvelles" machines (ostc 2 New edition & co).

Est ce exact ?
Sait tu s'il serait possible de "pomper" le code ?

Hi,

All our computers do not show TTS+Divetime. I'm a bit unsure if this is an important information since it's a simple addition of the divetime and the TTS. It doesn't add much information to the diver...

regards,
Matthias

Hi,

When you have a constraint on the total run time to respect, yes, it becomes an important information : On long and deep dives, there is already enough to do to avoid additions with figures that change once or twice by minute.

So, I will try to code it.

I don't really get it, either you dive on a runtime table where runtime becomes important, but the importance counts for every decostop, not just surfacing time or you dive on the computer and in that case runtime is of much less importance.

when diving on runtime table, the information in the computer is imho just backup information and why is it important to know total run time for a dive to say 80 metres when you've still got all decostops to come. If you get to each stopdepth at exactly the planned time, then you will also know upfront the total divetime. If you get to a stop late, you might have to adjust one or more of the other stops and your total dive time will not be the same as your planned runtime, in fact if your unlucky every next stop will be at another time (maybe a minute sooner or later) than you had planned upfront; what really matters in that scenario is to know how long you need to stop, not when you had originally planned to leave for the next stop or the surface.

Thanks a lot Arno,
but this is not my way.

I would have preferred help in assembler !
