Activesky 2012 Wind Problems (having to manually refresh)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Ever since getting Activesky 2012 many months ago I've been having a problem with the winds inputted by Activesky.

 

It happens at all stages of flight from takeoff to landing, but more often than not, the wind in FSX is completely different to what Activesky 2012 is trying to input. If I open up Activesky, go to Wx Report and hit 'Refresh AI' it corrects the wind speed/direction in FSX to as it should be, but I have to continuely do this throughout the flight.

 

I'm using a registered version of FSUIPC (Version 4.70b) and FSInn for Vatsim.

 

Any help would be appreciated...

Hi Sam,

 

A couple things... First, make sure FSUIPC is updated to the latest version. The version you have now has known issues in some cases. Next, make sure you are using DWC mode to get accurate winds aloft. Without DWC, internal FS issues prevent accurate winds aloft depiction. Please see the manual regarding DWC mode as there are some things to keep in mind when using this.

 

Hope that helps!

Hi Damien, thanks for the prompt response.

 

I'll update FSUIPC now and restore all settings to Default, using DWC mode and let you know if I have anymore problems.
