Recommended Posts

Hi right now i am using REX2 for textures and then ASX for the weather, its really greatbut is there any advantage in using the rex2 weather with its textures, i mean like as the weather changes the textures updates itself accordingly for the weather, if so is there any way to do the same using ASX, Thanks in advance for any replies!

Using REX engine does not mean that textures update in flight. Textures can only update before FSX is even started... REX, like ASA calculates average weather situation enroute and applies certain type of textures. With ASA you have to set up properly snapshot option in order for it to work correctly.

No problem, we can exchange but... currently my PC is to weak to show the best. In mid this year - at beginning of August I will have powerfull I7 965 @4Ghz. Then will see what I can get out of REX and ASA. Now it is only some compromise, however i tend to go lower on ground rather than on weather :)

Hi,I think not understand me, I mean exchanging files with textures stored by the ASA in a RAR file, then appended to the ASA (if you do not know how I can I explain)For example, we take for "Stormy" 2 textures, one created by me and another for you. The ASA will choose randomly between these two textures for the same condition "Stormy".Excuse my englishThank youJosman157360.pngTAM3271.png

Aaa, this you mean. No problem, we could do that. Easy on the English thing, its it alright. Now how do you plan to send me texture files? They could be quite large. Do you have FTP server connection?

Do you have FSX?Each snapshot is compressed in RAR +/- 40MB. We can use the skydrive. I send a message with my e-mail.ThanxJosman

Joseman,Are you going to be able to explain how to modify ASA in order for ASA to recognize these new snapshots?

Hi,No, not at all! If I would have thought differently, I would have never let this post get this far!! As long as you can explain to anyone how to do this and you are sure that the other user actually owns the textures that are being shared.Edit: Only one banner is allowed here at AVSIM!

HelloBut would these snapshots that you are about to share contain textures from other payware environment programs Like Rex for instance.

Yes. If I have the REX in my PC and my friend ST1322 has the REX in your PC, we are just sharing the combine of this textures.

HelloIT is not OK as long as you know that you have only REX textures installed and your friend has a registered copy of REXProblems start when you have used multiple graphics packages to enhance your Sim and then you start swapping Snapshots.From the ASA user manual"You cannot, however, share Graphics Snapshot files with other users! Obviously someone who has not purchased ASG, FE, XG, FEX or REX (or software from other vendors including Microsoft) are not allowed to obtain their textures without purchasing their software license. Please refer to your license from your individual products for more information."From the REX EULA"c. Separation of Components. The SOFTWARE PRODUCT is licensed as a single product. Its original component parts created by REX may not be separated for use for other software or projects."

True, however my REX is 101% legally purchased.
HelloLegally it does matter as it is against the terms you accepted when you clicked yes in the REX EULAAnd what about the other copyright material in the snapshot?

Hi All,Based on the posting of the REX license I will encourage users NOT to share texture snapshots. If one wants to share individual names of the files/textures involved that is fine. Just so that the second user must create the snapshot on their computer as well.Also, it does state on the ASA/Graphics screen: "Important Notice: Graphics Snapshots contain copywrited content provided from your graphics packages and/or FS itself. They cannot be shared!"And also to encourage this procedure, I will be locking this thread.
