GET VS METEO

Recommended Posts

Hello to all;Can you tell me why I have to pay to get FS_METEO V6.0 if I can get Getweather v3.0 from BEARSOFT for free. Is there a difference in the way these two programs handle the weather and the interaction with FS2004.Thank you for your help.

Why don't you download the free version of FSMeteo and do the comparison for yourself?

Because if you MUST know I don't have Internet access in my house. I'm using the Internet in my job. My modem is "down". I can't download anything in this computer because is not permited. If I ask this question is because I can't do it any other way. Do you get the picture. And remember a question is never answered with a question. I hope there are no more "users" like you here. Thank you.

FS_Meteo is a real world weather program, without an internet connection on your FS machine its essentially useless. My impression is that a little research could have told you that, maybe that

Metalaye,You sure are "snippy" for someone asking for info. The response that was given was valid in most cased. Try before you buy. I've used both, but guess what. With your attitude, you can find out from someone else.George Stoddard

I have an internet connection, I have DSL. My modem is DOWN, NOT WORKING, NOT FUNCTIONING, I'm waiting for the telephone co. to fix it or change it. I was planning to buy this FSMETEO using the reply to my question as input for my decision to or not to buy. Why is this question so difficult for you. A friend was about to buy one FSMETEO for him and I needed this info so I could tell him to buy two of them. I think it could have been faster for you to give me a simple response to my question instead of finding out if I'm stupid or you are smart. Well, any way I think the question will go without a reply. Please pardon my english I'm from Japan and I don't write to much.Thank you.

Mr. George Stoddard;I'm sorry I don't know what "SNIPPY" is, can you be more specific. Any way, my first post to my question was very, very, humble. Not one screeam, only good hope. But now you see we are at DEF CON 6. Any way sorry if you or any other person was affected by my question. I'm just looking for my answer. Go back and read my first post, tell me what is wrong with it.Thank you.

Hello,I think I can answer what you asked. Yes, your friend could buy it for you, but FS Meteo is ONLY distributed thru Email for now. So, you would have to have a valid email address so the files can be sent to you. And your friend would have to tell Marc exactly what he was trying to do, so the files would be sent to two places (your friend, and you). After that, any updates are sent by email too. If your modem is fixed in a week or so, it won't matter, if you're willing to wait. Once you have a valid internet connection, FS Meteo should work for you just fine.Your English is just fine. It's a lot better than my Japanese, anyway.

Metaleve,This is ALL very confusing.Your ENGLISH is excellent!!!!! 1000% better than my Japanese!My advice to you, now that we understand that you have a DSL connection, is NOT TO HESITATE to buy FS-METEO. I have used it for the last two years on ALL of my flights. Why do I say this?1. FS_METEO wotks correctly 99.9% of the time ... a truly excellent piece of software.2. Marc Philibert, the software developer provides excellent, very responsive support if you have any issues.Sorry, don't know about the other FREE software ... but in this case I can assure you that you get what you pay for with FS_Meteo..Good luck ... and as pointed out above, you can try it for free!!!

Hello Mr. Sidewinder;I thank you for taking from your time to answer my question. I'm very happy to know that there is still hope for those that are in need for a helping hand in this not very easy world of Flight Sim. You must rest asure that my next question will contain ALL the facts as why I'm asking my question so there are no missunderstandings, (this word is toooooo long, it's speeling is ok?), any way, thank you. Just a very, very, very small detail. I don't want to offend you or any budy else, but, can you tell me the differece between FSMETEO AND GETWEATHER so I can make reach a descition on if I must buy or not.Thank you, have a nice day.

Hello Mr. Paul Benoit;I'm so glad to hear from you, I think that there is no free demo for FSMETEO VER. 6.0., maybe for the other versions but not for the latest one. I wanted to have all the facts for this new version so I can reach a desicion in this matter. Please, if I'm wrong let me know, so I can go the the Internet Page using my friend access and get this demo.Thank you for you'r repply;

Basically, the difference between the two programs is where it gets the weather from.GetWeather gets its feed from Jeppensen and FSMeteo uses its own servers. Also, FSMeteo updates the weather every 6 minutes (I believe), and GetWeather updates the weather every 15 minutes (since it uses the logic from FS2004 directly).In addition, FSMeteo allows you to set different options in how the weather is handled. GetWeather doesn't.

Mr. Steven;Thank you so much for your help. I think that FSMeteo is the best choice at this moment. I must thank you all for your time and the great knowledge you have shown in this matter. I'm just starting now in this field, but I think is a very rewarding one. My job at the research laboratory leaves me little time for myselfe, but the procedures related to the Flight Sim world helps me to relax my mind. I'm also taking my clases to obtain my private pilot certificate, in a small, but interesting Cesna 172.Thank you all;

Metaleye,It is cool you are just starting out and you are asking questions. You'll find a lot of useful folks here that will try their hardest to help. However, you seem to be very rude to people who offer suggestions that you don't like. You won't make many friends with those kind of responses. Nobody in the thread above deserved to be spoken to like that. Your English is well written enough to not be confusing.

Mr. Rich;I knock on the door very gently, but I was received with a buck of cold water. I think that if you have a real desire to help others you just don't send them to do their own research, you just help, without any other thoughts in your mind. I must admit that some people are more delicate than others and they just get offended too easy. I did ask for excuses to all that in one way or the other felt offended, I consider this matter closed.Thank you all;

Metaleye,You are 100% correct. You asked a sensible question and all that was needed was a sensible "answer". If the individual replying did not know the answer to the question then why did he bother to reply? If he did know the answer then again why did he bother to reply without supplying the "answer"? This kind of mindlessness profits none of us on the forum. I don't know what it is about computer forums but they have the tendency to to attract many with little common decency. You politely and courteously asked a question. It was not too much to expect a polite and courteous answer.Have fun with your Simming.Regardshdcafe

This was not my only post. Just my only post in awhile. Been here a long long time pal!Regards,hdcafePS. How can you blame this guy for having an "attitude" when all he did was politely ask a simple question and got nothing but grief for it? He had every right to defend himself.ssurjap was the only one who got it right.

Ah but it is true. Many times people reply with nothing to offer a particular post. It would seem they are more interested in criticising the prose used, or the percieved attitude of the poster. Very difficult to understand sometimes through text on a PC, on the other hand some people get their kicks from stirring it up on forums, sad really, no doubt they would never dream of doing it face to face for fear of certain physical retribution.Many times I think if you can't help or aren't interested in helping, then why post? Bit like I am doing now, n'est pas? LOLTo the poster, buy FS Meteo, you will not regret it. It has the same features as Active Sky now with it's own dedicated server which is very reliable. I understand you will need to wait for your internet connection to be repaired. FS Meteo is very stable and will give you no problems. It has the most up to date weather of all the available choices. I cannot speak for freeware as I have never used it. Hope that is helpfull in your quest.

Rich,<>I found nothing rude about metaleye's replies. On the contrary, I find your replies to a person whose primary language is not English to be ill judged AND rude.Have a bit of tolerance for non-English speakers.
