Selected Active Sky for weather

I have never done that. I will give it a go tonight...

I took the shell off my racing snail, thinking it would make him run faster. If anything, that made him more sluggish.

I miss the following message in your AS_P3Dv4_SimConnectionLog.txt, maybe it's not pasted in the post:

20:50:59:0052-Post Connect P3D_Connected = False

Explanation: I started AS for P3D, then P3D, then loaded the scenario, at 20:51 I was in the VC.
At 20:53, I stopped P3D, after P3D was down, I stopped AS for P3DV4.

Did you install AS_Connect ("Hifi\As_P3dv4\ASconnect_p3dv4_install.exe") ?

I did install that, yes.  I have completed another flight, and made sure that weather was also set to Active Sky, but that didn't seem to help.

this may help: https://www.dropbox.com/s/p86neeadxpe2oqz/AS_P3Dv4_Log_Export3.txt?dl=0

Stupid question, but is AS really running when you check the weather in the sim? Currently, I have the issue that AS often closes itself as soon as it should inject weather (no error message) and then I have to restart it, then I am hammered with error windows for five, six times but afterwards, AS is running and it usually stays running...

BTW, regarding your AS_P3Dv4_Log 05/12/2019 00:54:09:

Messages

...
21:09:52:0456-Prepar3D connection established!

make me think, you started P3D first, then AS.

As I remember, it's recommended to start AS first, then P3D.
As I do my whole startup with a small Windows script, every plugin and P3D itself in the correct order and timely separated (Win command CHOICE /T is the choice 😉) , in my setup it's done automatically.

Maybe that's the reason ?

Nevertheless, I experienced in testing situation where I start P3D manually, then later on AS, I remember it needs 1-2 minutes until the weather changes.

From your log:

21:10:22:0471-Set mode to historical

What I don't understand:

21:10:04:0646-Aircraft location on theme load: lat = N41° 17' 26.07" lon = E02° 04' 36.41" alt = 26 feet

If I load EGNM, I see the message
19:18:18:0138-Aircraft location on theme load: lat = N53° 51' 31.36" lon = W01° 38' 58.30" alt = 686 feet.
From Google Maps, with right mouse click, I see EGNM at 53°52'05.8"N 1°39'35.8"W, but 41°17'26.0"N 2°04'00.0"W is somewhere in spain ?

BTW: check FSUIPC for its weather settings so it doesn't overwrite AS.
The same for other plugins that change weather outside of AS.

If nothing else helps, it may help to make screenshots of AS options, completely uninstall and reinstall AS, then check the former options and set them if necessary.

FYI:

I have been in touch with HiFi and are talking to them, which is why I haven't been getting back to anyone.  I raised the problem on their website, and they essentially told me to run the following before the P3D session:

  • del %appdata%\Roaming\Hifi\AS_P3Dv4\Weather\LastDownloaded.Wx
  • del  %appdata%\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Shaders\*.*

I did but it doesn't work.

They also talked about me "setting the Upper Maximum Visibility to 200 statute miles and see if that makes a difference", but I don't know how to do that.

I couldn't find that, but now I have, it's a setting in AS_P3Dv4 and mine is already set to 200 😞

I can't find a reference to EGNM on the flight plan, but I've seen it mentioned a few times on this post.

I'll also check FSUIPC - I have the full copy but I don't know it well.

Apologies in advance if I missed it, but does the weather match the METAR? What is the reported METAR text?

Cheers!

Thanks for telling me how to get it - I was confused! Is this what you require. I'm currently flying 02/12/19.  That what the screen says, but in this text the weather is next year! Maybe I should always travel a year back?:

This element is the UTC date and time the forecast is actually prepared. The format is a two-digit date and four-digit time followed, without a space, by the letter Z.

So you're not a year ahead.

Couple of updates :

1. I'm now approaching runway 25 - up until I opened this issue, it always was told 7.

2. Ran the Navigraph Update again, having so far discovered it had not updated AS! 

 

I'll let you know as it's looking good..
