Thanks Damian - you are on a roll.Future compatibility with Radar Contact v 3.0 and FS SkyWorld would be "very nice to have" addition. Right now Radar Contact people are only concerned about FS Meteo compatibility since this was the only game in town. Maybe you could knock on their forum next door since they are putting finishing touches on their revolutionary 3.0.Michael J.

Hi Damian,First off great program, awesome concept, keep up the good work!I am going to pass this along to you. I may have found a weather bug for Alberta, Canada weather.For some reason the Alt. is way off as mentioned before with V1.0.I set up my aircraft in Calgary CYYC, loaded the program as instructed. And I was showing 33000ft on the ground.http://mainlandpc2.netfirms.com/pic1.jpgI then moved the aircraft to test it out in Vancouver CYVR and everything worked fine. I thought I would try Edmonton CYEG, I had the same problem there with V 1.0, and it was still off.I do not know if it is a weather reporting bug with Canadian Metars or just in the Province of Alberta?I thought I would let you know,Regards,Karl K

Hi Vangelis! How are things?No problem, LGAV added with your specified coordinates... thanks! You can of course also add LGAV to your own icao.txt file for now but LGAV will be included in the next release. Thanks again!-Damian

I just went to CYYC and could not re-create the pressure problem. All worked fine. Maybe the weather report was messed up?

Hi Karl, I checked all those airports and it worked fine for me... unable to duplicate. You sure you are using v1.2? Double check (check the splash screen) and if you are up to date, give me a screenshot of the main screen and one of the runtime status screen and I'll investigate further.. Thanks!-Damian
