Frequently Asked Questions - AS2004 (NEW!)

Recommended Posts

Please take a look at this before asking a new support question, as the answer may be here!Is AS2004 compatible with FS2002?No, it is not. AS2004 is compatible with FS2004 ONLY, due to the new station-based structure of the AS2004 weather engine.Can I run AS2004 on WideFS?Yes, AS2004 can run via WideFS on another computer other than your FS computer. The ActiveRadar module, however, must run on the FS system. An ActiveRadar Connector program is made available to point ActiveRadar to your second (AS2004) computer and properly read AS2004 weather data.Does AS2004 effect performance?AS2004 by itself does not generally cause a noticeable performance hit. Certain unavoidable hits, such as doing actual FS weather writes, are intelligently handled via efficient write processes and update suppression to keep stutters away during critical phases of your flight. ActiveRadar, the internal FS module, CAN cause a performance hit depending on your selected radar detail options. ActiveRadar has many detail and performance-related options that can help you fine-tune the best balance of performance and radar resolution for your system. Also note that the more clouds being displayed, the lower performance will be, so we highly recommend using our included

"Can I change the readout to QNH and Meters display in ActiveRadar Tracking?Yes. Use the Modes/Options/Language menu in ActiveRadar to set your desired units display."As far as I can tell, there is no Modes/Options/Languages menu in ActiveRadar, only Modes/Options. There is nothing related to languages in that section either. Could someone tell me how to change settings to QNH please? ;)Geoffrey BaleanCanberra, AU (YSCB)http://www.hifisim.com/images/as2004proudsupporter.jpg http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg"Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

Sorry for the very long gap between replies - forgot about this thread - but in my ActiveRadar Modes/Options page there is no language box. Therefore I cannot get a QNH setting.Geoffrey BaleanCanberra, AU (YSCB)http://www.hifisim.com/images/as2004proudsupporter.jpg http://www.vozvirtual.org/images/pmdgforumsignature.png"Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.
