Active Radar: i'm in trouble!!!

Recommended Posts

Guest LSangiovanni LIML

It's my turn again.When i load MSFS flightplan and update i can read for every FP way point: wheather not available; i'm sure, ActiveSky is loaded and weather is updated ( can also listen to ATIS messages via COMM.122.00. BTW is it normal to get voices switchings after report started?Also, the radar screen doesn't show anything but navaids.What's wrong here?Thanks in advance for helpingLuigi ;-)

Hi,In AR you need to turn on the Airports display by using the Radar Arrow and clicking on the 3rd button. Same with your flight path, which is the fifth button.The voice may switch if you tune 122.0 then un-tune it. The voice should not change in the middle of a reading.Hope this helps,JimActiveSky Supporthttp://www.hifisim.com/images/as2004proudsupporter.jpg

Hi,my problems are not navaids on the radar screen but the weather itself that never displays on the screen(black).maybe this is related to the fact that also loading fp I cannot see any weather station active.ThanksLuigi ;-)

Hi,severe thunderstoms here (MKJP 20050115_18Z). I'm still on the ground! My precip line is empty and also weather stations are inactive after flightplan loading. And, the worse, AR screen is empty! I only can see locations in red and flight path in yellow.Thanks for helpingLuigi ;-)

In AR Tracking screen i see red ICAO and the yellow flight path.BTW is it necessary to load a FS flightplan to have AR screen showing clouds?ThanksLuigi ;-)

Hi,sorry for my last post, i misunderstood your question...Thought i'd posted some pics to show you what's happening on my pc; i do not get those colourful weather radar screens at all despite flightplan loading. What should i do? Do i necessarily have to load MSFS plan to get AR infos?Thanks again for helpingLuigi ;-)Here's my plane parked at MKJP. METAR reports heavy thunderstormshttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/104055.jpgMKJP Reporthttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/104056.jpgand finally AR screens (nothing seems to happen :-()http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/104057.jpg

Hi,Here is your situation: your AR is not communicating with FSUIPC. I need you to uninstall FSUIPC.dll and FSUIPC.ini from your modules folder. Then re-install FSUIPC.dll. Lastly make sure to re-start FS, and AS. Then see if the weather tracking screen shows your location.For right now I want you to forget loading and processing a flight plan.Hope this helps,JimActiveSky Supporthttp://www.hifisim.com/images/as2004proudsupporter.jpg

so i did...deleted both FSUIPC.dll and FSUIPC.ini in modules folder, reinstalled FSUIPC.dll v3.4.4.0After that i re-started FS and AS but again AR seems not functional :-(Now i have to tell you that i'm running AS on a networked PC via WideServer v6.4.4.0; sorry for not mentioning before... but weather and also Voice Flightwatch feature comm 122.0 work just fine on FS PC.Now, what should i do?Thanks again for helpingLuigi ;-)

Hi,yes, i did.Now my FS2004Modules folder contain ActiveRadar.dll and a folder called ActiveRadar and inside this folder i can see one folder called FPA(empty)+161 files, one of them is called ActiveRadar.cfg.On the AS PC i can find a folder called ActiveSky2004Modules that contains ActiveRadar.dll and a folder called ActiveRadar; its content is identical to thr folder on FS machine.Maybe should i edit ActiveRadar.cfg?Thanks a lot for your patienceLuigi ;-)

IMHO it does.weather keeps updated via network connection and, as i said before, i also can get voice reports tuning my comm. to 122.0 (at least at departure airport); but this doesn't mean that report is correct...Surely weather changes several times along flight and if i slew my plane from USA to Europe i can see weather report changing on AS PC and weather changing on FS PC.Maybe all is related to the fact i usually fly offline?Luigi ;-)

Hi,did a complete uninstall/reinstall of AS2004 v1.0+build163; when launching ActiveRadarConnector2.exe, after AS2004.exe located on the mapped drive on AS PC and FS2004 path located on FS PC, i get a new error message :-( http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/104244.jpgMaybe i misunderstood the meaning of ...Mapped Drive to the ROOT...What should i do at this point other than copy/paste the ActiveRadar.dll file and ActiveRadar folder (from the AS2004 installModules folder) to FS9Modules folder (as suggested in readme file)?Should AR work also this way?Thanks again for your patienceLuigi ;-)

Hi Luigi,Mapped drive to root means that on the FS machine you need a drive letter (such as F:) mapped to C: (for example) on the wideFS machine.Then when you are using ARconnector2 you run it on the FS machine and select the AS2004.exe program via F:INSTALLDIRMODULESACTIVESKY2004AS2004.exe.It sounds like you may have AS2004 installed on both the WideFS AND the FS Machine? It should not be installed on the FS machine, this can cause problems. If this is the case make sure it is completely uninstalled from the FS machine. The arconnector2 program will copy the files necessary to the FS machine and update the proper registry entries.There is a manual method you can use as well if you continue to have problems:-------------1) Install AS2004/.5 on the WideFS machine2) Copy the Activeradar.dll and Activeradar folder from the WideFS InstalldirModules folder to your FS9Modules folder.3) On the FS Machine, map your drive as usual4) Open regedit on FS machine, and add this key/value (string):HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareHiFiAS2004Install_PathAnd set it to your AS2004 location through the mapped drive (i.e. F:INSTALLDIRModulesActiveSky2004-------------Once all this is working, we need to verify that AR can talk to FS via FSUIPC ok (as that was the original problem). You should get a closest station ID shown and a proper distance. If this is working, then the radar should work! If not, please send us your FSUIPC.log file, perhaps the problem will show up there... Thanks!

>Hi Luigi,>>Mapped drive to root means that on the FS machine you need a>drive letter (such as F:) mapped to C: (for example) on the>wideFS machine.That's what i miss... perhaps!My networked pc's are called FIRST and SECOND. From network resources on FIRST PC i can see all SECOND partitions.They are called C DISK on SECOND, D DISK on SECOND, E DISK on SECOND; ActiveSky2004 is installed on SecondE DISK.From SECOND PC i can see all FIRST partitions: C: D: E:Can you please explain how should i map SECONDE DISK to read F:?Or i can keep the original name and select the AS2004.exe program via SECONDE DISKAS2004MODULESACTIVESKY2004AS2004.exe? (this is what i did when i got the error).Thanks for helpingLuigi ;-)
