Is the real-world weather option not working in FS9 (v9.1)?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 
I was wondering if someone knows whether or not the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 and X real world weather option is working correctly. For some reason the weather under this option seems to be frozen in time and the weather does not update to the most current weather conditions. I did some homework and followed the recommendations prescribed on this Microsoft Bulletin:
 
 
To me it seems that there's a issue with Microsoft's servers rather than a problem on my end, and in some people have expressed having a similar problem in other threads found on this forum.
 
Are there any other alternatives to real world weather in FS2004?
 
Thanks for your time!

REX has reliable and accurate real time weather updates, using the METAR weather stations that are often located at airports along your journey.  If you file a flight plan that weather will update as often as every 100 miles along your journey.   I can use my REX to get the current weather report for the real world.  If it is raining on my sim at the local airport it is likely to be raining outside my door.

I was wondering does FSRealWX lite have a "static real world weather" option as in default FS2004. Their website does not tell explicitly.

 

Thanks for forwarding the info.

After about 8-10 weeks of no Updates,  the Microsoft FS9/FSX weather servers started outputting correct, Real time weather, on or about last Friday, July 19th 2013.

 

So far, 3 days later, so good.   -- till next time it goes down for an undetermined time.
