Pilot2ATC & REX Weather Force 2020 in MSFS

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

latest update of REX Weather Force 2020 says it adds support for Pilot2ATC. Does anyone know 

how to configurate both programs to get them to work with eachother? Can't find the metar_report.xml

from WF or is there an other way? Thanks in advance.


Cheers, Ryan

So I just bought REX Weather Force 2020, and if you go to 'Settings' there is a Data Export option in the new version. When you enable this then there will be 'metar_report.xml' generated in the 'Exports' folder of the REX installation directory.

BUT...

I configured P2ATC for Rex, and set the correct folder that contains the metar_report.xml. When I connect to MSFS, and check the weather in P2ATC (e.g. selecting my departure airport waypoint and the 'Wx' button enabled), it only displays

Weather at KTEX: Not available.

I double-checked that the xml contains a valid Metar (well as far as I can tell).

@Dave any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Dirk

Dave,

here is the entry for KTEX in the exported metar_xml, is this what P2ATC expects?

Dirk,

If you email me the metar_report.xml file you have, I can do some testing.

Please send to admin@pilot2atc.com.

Dave

Will do, thanks Dave!

I am having the same issue. Pointed Pilot2ATC to the metar_report.xml but does not seem to be able to read it. I was at KIGM and checked to see if it was in the xml, which it was.

If it can't find the REX weather file in the location you specify, it will revert to the NOAA weather.  Check your file location setting and be sure the file is physically there.
