fs2004 real world weather

Recommended Posts

Finally got FS2004 installed on my new computer (Vista). Still have Fs2002 on my old computer (XP). I select my hometown airport, set up for real world weather and it always comes up the same - snowing - poor visibilty no matter what the weather is. (Using the actual date for time and season and it has not snowed for over a week).If I go to the Fs2002 on the other computer using real world weather the weather seems to be fairly accurate.Any ideas why this is happening?

after checking VISTA's firewall go to the weather themes. click 'clerar weather' and load FS. this should 'remove' all 'historical' FS may be using. after a minute of so change to real-weather and see if things work 'correctly'note: fs9 uses some different weather stations than fs8. so difference may exist between what FS8 and FS9 'report'.--

Went to settings and enabled the "Download winds aloft" setting and this cleared up the problem. It took longer to download the weather after changing this like it is getting more info. no firewal issues - get the downloading and loading into FS2004 screens from Jeppesen (spelling) with the progression bars.
