How's the weather in Ghana? Do I care? ;-)

Recommended Posts

Did anyone notice the XEngine GUI first indicates an airport in Ghana (Africa) before it is able to pick up the true aircraft location from FSX? This is because latitude, longitude 0 are closest to... Ghana!I think defaulting Lat/Lon to the coordinates from the default flight file would have been the better choice. I find it a bit confusing to be presented the weather in some African country on startup of XEngine.Otherwise: cool product!Christian

You should care. If not for the people, than at least for the fact it produces most of the cocoa used to make your chocolate. ==Marten:Weber==P-D920 oc3.64MHz 2GB RAM WinXP ATI X1900+1024MB 2xSATA250 2xVIEWSONIC 19"Need AI? Check www.world-of-ai.com!

Okay, this is what I observe:I run WxEngine (FSX is not running yet). It downloads the weather for the last known aircraft position from the last flight. That would be somewhere in Arizona in my case.Then I start FSX. The menu dialog of FSX appears.WxEngine (respectively its GUI) then reports "Connected to FSX" and suddenly the location in the "Report" section jumps to a location in Ghana (The checkbox "Lock to closest" is active). Meaning somehow internally latitude/longitude get reset to 0/0.I do have a default flight and a default location set in FSX. But apparently these coordinates never make it into WxEngine. It is the default flight in Friday Harbour by the way.I had a similar problem during development of TileProxy. I worked around it by explicitly loading the default Flight file and extracting the coordinates from it.I would consider it a bug of WxEngine... I haven't found any option to set a default location in the ActiveSky X GUI by the way, as one of the responders suggested.So until this problem is resolved I will be presented with weather reports from Ghana.Christian

Open ASX. Click on the Report button. Change the ICAO code to the airport of your choice.
