Hi there please can you help you me, having the same problem, go to fsx says I'm not connected to the Internet, the homepage doesn't seem to come on and my weather doesn't seem to update, there some solutions but I'm not a computer wiz could you help because I don't think it's my system because the other people with the same problem.

kind Regards nick

Your weather, assuming in in-Sim weather updated every 15 minutes, hasn't been working for a long time.  I don't think I have ever gone to the FSX "Home" page.  Doubt that I have missed much.

Believe he is referring to the FSX-SE homepage, not FSX as the topic title is about FSX-SE.  FSX boxed real weather does not work?  It was working for me recently.

OK, basically the same FSInsider homepage for boxed FSX.  FSX real weather does not update anymore.  The weather that was entered into the sever(s) is several many months old.  In essence, the weather works, just not updated to the present conditions.

It works but not all of the time.  In any case, it is not a problem for me as I could care less if the weather works or not and is exactly the conditions outside my window or not.  If I want to fly in rain (if it is raining outside my window), I can click on one of the raining themes.  My simulator will not know it is not the real thing but just a theme with rain in it.  😎

gshome.spb_fsxse_fixed.zip  download this file from the AVSIM Library and follow the instructions in the README.

It does work, sort of, for the FSX boxed version.  The FSInsider is now only  meant for FSX-SE.

Yes, I am aware that there is an issue with the links to the Home Page of FSX: Steam Edition (https://fsxinsider.com/), it is also the only page available for FSX as the FSX Boxed Version is no longer supported by its developer, Microsoft. The page actually does not exist because support was sent to Dovetail Games (Steam).

 

In accordance to my gshome.spb fix; I didn't want to fool around with the file anymore. That is why I put together the process I used so anyone else can help themselves if the want to : ) 

In which are included the tools I used, within the zip file, which one can find in the SDK Folder within the Main FSX Folder (ie:C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX). Also, absolutely no corrupt files or programs should be inside. I do not like viruses or trojans (suuuuuck!)

and

By all means; anyone, use my files to customize your FSX experience!

Only Jeppsen who handles the servers can help and I think they have given up the ghost.

Live weather for FSX: Steam Edition or FSX Boxed?

I think it is a different site they use for the older boxed versions(?)

Yes, Jeppesen is the provider for FSX:SE anyways...

....I will see if any more information comes along with this, but in the meantime try searching this forum to see if any others have the same issue. An internet connection for live weather is needed btw... (duh, lol!)

Like I said, the Live weather updated every 15 minutes has been kaput for several many months and is very doubtful if ever coming back.  You will need to look into either payware weather programs or freeware like FSRealweather.

Nick, what version are you running again? FSX:SE or FSX:Boxed?

Also, do you have the right date set for your flights? Maybe your flight is in January instead of June??

Anyone having this issue again??

I noticed that the update made is not working anymore.

So searching on the web I noticed the page does not exist!

Just want to know if anyone else is having this issue again. I will try to fix it again and let you all know again.

Okay!!

 

Did it again and worked for me!

I compiled a new version of gshome.spb to use with FSX: Steam Edition.

🤗

The zip file will be available soon at the Avsim Library

 

***NOTE: It will say Version 2 on the new file! Wait to download gshome.spb_fsxse_fix_V2.zip otherwise you will download my last fix, which will not work!***

 

Same instructions. Follow readme.txt for more.

 

Thanks!

NOTE:

This fix was made for users that have issues with their FSX: SE Home page content not appearing when online. If you have no issues you don't NEED it, but you can try it out as it is interactive.

 

Comments? Let me know if you need any help!

 

Thanks,

Braden
