OpusFSX Beta 3.38.2

Recommended Posts

We found a problem with Beta 3.38.2 regarding the wind targets so we will revert back to the old method for wind injection and after some further testing will post a new Beta.

 

We did make an improvement in getting rid of more cloud popping in beta 3.38.2 so we are encouraged by that.

Was there also issues with seeing precipitation? I had snow in the weather report but none happening on screen, tried another weather program and it had snow falling. I have gone back to 3.37.5 and snow falling again. I will stay with that for now.

 

 

Thanks for your good work

Same issue here for precip.  METAR from the test flight departure airport:

CYBL 121800Z 13005KT 15SM -RA BKN013 OVC030

 

Sky conditions matched but no rain on field or at any time after departure.

 

Thanks,

Thanks Scott, I will correct the precipitation base level, looks like its sitting above ground at the moment.

 

I'll post the fix in a few moments.

OK, I will check it out.

 

Stephen

Do you have the METAR, or are you looking at the Opus weather report. Can you inject weather with the Spy window open to check for any errors and I will try here.

 

Stephen

I have plenty of snow falling using 3.90.0 beta. I will install 3.38.6 and try that.

 

Try checking for errors. Is your OpusWeather.WTB file being updated in your simulators Weather\theme folder during the weather update?

If you open the spy window it may report an exception error, there may be something wrong with the build. We are investigating now.

 

Try 3.39.0 beta.

We have confirmed there is a corrupt build with 3.38.6 so we have just posted a new purchase and upgrade for 3.39.0.

 

Please upgrade to Version 3.39.0 Beta using the Beta button.

Let us know how you get on with 3.39.0. I have just downloaded and re-installed the version and tested it at CYEG, plenty of Christmas snow there and no problems.

 

Sorry for any inconvenience to you and any other 3.38.6 users who downloaded the corrupt msi (don't know if the problem affected the Purchase EXE, something I did or whether the msi file just got corrupted on the server).

 

Stephen :-D

Downloaded 3.39.0 and still no precip on the ground. CYEG shows light snow in weather report but nothing happening. Clouds all look correct.

Strange, we have plenty of snow falling. Do you have an anti virus program active or something that would be blocking the weather update? Or perhaps another source of weather active?

 

Try deleting the OpusWeather.WTB file in you simulators Weather\theme file and then update the weather and make sure the file is transferred ok for the update.

 

Sounds like no weather is being injected.

Tried what you said still no snow on ground. Did that now the weather is not updating and that file is not in themes at all?

Ok. It could be you have an anti virus program active blocking the FSXSERVER program, or you have not identified the location of your simulators install folder in the FSXSERVER Configure dialog (quite likely if you have been switching versions), or you could find that your sims install drive or folder is not shared or dies not have permissions allowing access.

 

First check your Configure dialog, assuming no anti virus is running. Then check your sharing and permissions (x2) for the sims drive and install folder.

Okay I reinstalled it again and now it works. The only thing I did though was uninstall ASN (tried it as a free trial). Things seem to be back to normal now. Me thinks that ASN conflicts with OPUS somehow. Good for you to know if it is true.

 

 

Thanks

Darcy

Snow Falls again in Edmonton. We have had enough here already but do like my simulator to match the weather!!

 

Thanks for your help but again I think ASN conflicted with it.
