Problem with Real World Weather... please help!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,This is really strange... every time I try to load the real world weather function, it looks like it's loading (you know, the progress bar) but then the game just shuts down. What's even more strange is that this has never happened before AND it started yesterday AND I had used the real world function earlier in the day, then when I tried to use it later it did this funny shut down thing and it is still doing it now. Anyone know what the problem might be? The only change I made to FS was installing the new KMSP scenery, but I don't know how that could mess up the real world weather.Any ideas?Thanks in advance,Matt

I'm so glad your having this problem too.FS2004 also closes down and also says "Access Violation Error" I haven't changed anything in FS2004 so it must be Microsoft's end as Jeppenson's servers seem to be up and running.Regards,Wayne

Hi,I'm also having this problem. So this is normal, I have reloaded files from my last backup since I just deleted some unused aircraft and nothing has worked. I was contemplating an uninstall and reinstall FS2004. I'm sure glad I read this post before I did that! Thanks, John

Got the same thing here. It started Monday evening, and so far was not corrected as of Tuesday morning. I assume the file that's being downloaded is corrupt, or something else is wrong.- John

Been happing to me since yesterday. I load the real weather, it seems to download then the programme just quits. I was contemplating an uninstall of FS2004 but read another forum somewhere that it may be the server at Microsoft or jeppeson or somewhere!! I'll hold on for a bit and see what happens - can't even think about doing all those downloads again!Gavin

Let me join the crowd! For no good reason I get a CTD when downloading real world weather as of yesterday (5/29/07). Glad this post was here, I'll hold off on the re-install project...

CTD for real world weather FS2004 since Sunday May 27. I'd like to know how I can contact someone to let Microsoft/Jeppesen know that there is an issue. From Microsoft's web site it would cost $35 to open an 'email incident' which I'd rather not do. Any suggestions?

This will probably be a stupid question but how do I turn on the real world weather as I don't think I have it activated? (assuming it's something in built in FS2004). If this is an addon feature how do I get it?

On the menu that you get on the top of the screen in the windowed mode, or when you press the "alt" button on your keyboard in full screen, click on "World" and at the bottom of the drop down menu, click on "Weather". The box that appears has two options for real world weather, one static and one for updates every 15 minutes. Choose the one you prefer and click on "OK". It should download and install the weather.

Great, I'll try this when I gt home, assuming it's still working. I've only had broadband at home for the last two weeks and it didn't occur to me until I read this thread.
