I've just about had enough of ASX. Sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I refuse to keep uninstalling, reinstalling, blah blah.See the attached screen. Can someone tell me why I'd have broken cloud at 7000? I live half way between Sydney and Canberra and today we've got blue skies and very clear vis - so the actual metar with Cavok is correct.Honestly, I think I'll be waiting for something more reliable to come along, as far as ACCURATE weather depiction goes.

Hi JimThanks for the quick answer, and sorry for posting in a another thread for the same problem, I didn't check before !Here's my ASX.cfg ://ASX Configuration File[Options]AutomaticDownloads = TrueAutomaticDownloadInterval = 10CAVOKCloudGenerationPercent = 0NoDataCloudGenerationPercent = 10CirrusCloudGenerationPercent = 25MaximumCloudLayers = 7MinimumCloudTurbulencePercent = 0MaximumCloudTurbulencePercent = 100MinimumCloudIcingPercent = 0MaximumCloudIcingPercent = 100MaximumSurfaceWindSpeed = 100MinimumWindTurbulencePercent = 0MaximumWindTurbulencePercent = 100MinimumWindShearPercent = 0MaximumWindShearPercent = 50MinimumVisibilitySM = 0MaximumVisibilitySM = 100UpdateRange = 300DynamicRateofChangePercent = 50WakeTurbulenceStrength = 50DepictHurricanes = TrueCreateVirtualStations = FalseEnhanceRouteCoverage = FalseMaximumUpperVisibilitySM = 200VATSIMDownloads = FalseEnableSkyScapeMode = TrueUseSkyScapeforStratus = TrueStratusCloudOccurrencePercent = 20ForceHighPriority = FalseDisableWindsAloft = FalseNote that although CAVOKCloudGenerationPercent = 0, ASX still happens to generate overcast with CAVOK report in the metar string...Thanks,Pierre

I suspect there may be a problem with Metar files for Australian stations when select "Use Local Time". It seems more accurate when I use UTC.Could there be a problem with using Australian time that can be "in the future", so to speak, in relation to UTC?Just a thought.
