error message "java.lang.NullPointerException | java.io.IOException"

 Hello there,
I am trying to run a little simulation with a small ROMS file (~ 36GB).
However, I had a failure with the following message :
"Failed to read dataset time dimension. java.lang.NullPointerException | java.io.IOException: Failed to read dataset time dimension. java.lang.NullPointerException"

This used to work in Ichthyop 3.0b. I tryed Ichthyop 3.3 and got this failure.

Then I came back to version 3.0b and I found the same problem.

The ROMS file is exactly the same

Hydrodynamic dataset: 
Java version: 
Java SE 8
Operating system: 
Windows 10

Hi Rodrigo.

Sorry for the very late response. Have you checked that the "Dimension in time" parameter (i.e. the name of the time dimension in the .nc) and the "Averaged time since initialization" (i.e.e the name of the time variable in the .nc) are properly set?


Thank you Nicolas!

I fixed the problem following your instructions.
