FSX Real World Weather

Recommended Posts

For the past week I am not able to download FSX Real World Weather. I get the following message " An error occurred while downloading Real-World Weather........

Anybody else has this problem. If not where do I look to fix this?

I have moved your topic out of the FSX/P3D Missions forum.  Real World weather hasn't been up to snuff for quite a while.  I have had that error only once or twice and I fixed it by just restarting the Sim.  The weather servers are no longer updating to the actual correct weather.

MicroSoft's contract with Jeppessen expired years ago and was not renewed.  Since then, actually getting real world weather through FSX has been a hit or miss affair.  In order to reliably have real world weather, you really need an add-on weather program.

I think this warning message is to become the "new norm".  I just click OK and take whatever weather comes my way.  I also checked the weather during the flight and it changed each time I checked it. Oh, well, life is tough.:wacko:

Look up FSXWX.

It's free, and it works for injecting Real World Weather back into FSX.

Too complicated to install. How about an easier to install and operated?

I was trying to edit my post but the option didn't appear. Than I tried to find it under quote and posted by mistake...Now I have deleted the double post, Sorry.

 

I am attempting to install FSXWX as a replacement to MS/Jeppesen weather; So far I have been unsuccesfull, ater I run the installer I redirect it to my C:\ Where my FSX Accel. is installed, it is not installed in  Program files since I am running Windows 7, so I redirect the installer there once there I run it, doesn't connect...?

Can anyone come with advice ?

Not as good as FSXWX, but it's better than nothing. I subscribe to FSOpen Clouds.    http://www.fsopen.co.uk/software/openclouds/

It's free for weather covering the UK, but £5 for a year's subscription to access the rest of the world weather.

Thanks Enko...Will report...

 

Also saw the written instructions,which I find easier to fallow...Still trying to understand how it downloads Real Weather and how I inject it into FSX...Just by Download real Weather option/ Download real Weather every 15 minutes option ??
