For Those Who Have FSMETRO 6.0 How is it?

Recommended Posts

I think I am going to go ahead and buy the new version 6.0 because it is up to date with weather and uses the dynamic weather so you see clear skies to the left and a thunderstorm to the right which is the most important thing to me. I would by ActiveskyWx but they lack this feature for right now till v2.0. Does anyone have COF and running version 6 right now, and how do you like it. Is the weather truley up to date, and do the cloud enviroment still look the same as it does in the default mode. Does the frame rates get affected very much and how much thanks a lot everyone.AdamSpilot692000@yahoo.com

I have the new version and have emailed Marc. When I attempt to start FSMeteo without FS2004 running, it generates a Windows error and is shutdown. The old version would start, then say waiting for FS. When I start FS2004 and go to window mode inorder to start FSMeteo, FS2004 locks up when trying to go back to full screen. I'm sure Marc will have a fix quickly.BobP :)

I gotta say that FSMeteo 6.0 absolutely beats Activesky hands down - there is no comparision for serious flight simmers. FSMeteo downloads realtime worldwide winds aloft forecasts even over oceanic areas, Activesky only simulates the same thing. FSMeteo also has every feature of Activesky now.The biggest difference is that FSMeteo utilizes private weather servers which are much much more reliable that Activesky's use of public NOAA data. Not only does this make FSMeteo tons faster than ActiveSky, you won't get download timeouts of online weather data with FSMeteo like you do with Activesky. I love the program.

You need FSUIPC 3.0 (latest is 3.03), but you don't need to buy it; FSMeteo is an accredited addon, which means its author has a commercial agreement with FSUIPC maker. If you need FSUIPC full functionality, you'll have to buy it though. But to make FSMeteo work, just download FSUIPC and install it.

It depends on the zulu time you place the order, really. Keep in mind the author is in France (?), and actually has to sleep occasionally. ;) I ordered late last night US time, it was in my mail this morning when I checked it. About 8 hrs later, and I have no idea when it actually arrived. BTW, I am *really* impressed with it. I went ahead and bought FSUIPC and WideFS just to help feed Pete (lol) while I was at it. I'm running FSMeteo on the laptop now while FS9 runs on the desktop, and it's SWEET.Mark
