  1. Yes, it runs extremely well networked, and very simple setup too.
  2. Hello, apologies for the late reply. Please check the WxControl tab and ensure that either "Live" or "Historical" weather is active. If the issue is not resolved please submit a ticket at Regards, Robert
  3. Apologies for the late reply. Have you installed the HDE v2.1 textures? Best bet would be to verify with the author of the freeware package. Regards, Robert
  4. Hello Pierre, Apologies for missing your post. Glad that you were able to figure it out. Robert
  5. Folks, Just following up on this thread and want to make sure that what you are experiencing were showers instead of rain, please verify the METAR, if there is SH or SHRA then the depiction is correct, you will see intermittent precipitation. For steady rain the METAR must contain RA, just as netshadoe described. If you are experiencing issues please submit a ticket and we will have a look at your settings, link is under my sig. Thank you. Robert
  6. Thanks for the reply Bob. Glad that it’s all sorted out now. I’ll check our documentation and test the SimConnect formatting and see if changing the order of things will have an effect. I will pass the message on to Jordan. All the best, Robert
  7. Hello Bob, I do not think it is necessary to have the SimConnect.ini in your main P3D root folder. Please verify your shared folder permissions are configured correctly on the server. These paths are:  The FSX/P3D main installation path (for example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator X = default share name: Flight Simulator X)  The FSX/P3D private application data path (for example: C:\Users\<username>\Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX = default share name: FSX)  The FSX/P3D documents path (for example: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files = default share name: Flight Simulator X Files) Instructions for setting up proper file sharing permissions: 1: Right Click on the folder and choose properties. 2: Click on the Sharing tab and click on Advanced Sharing. 3: Make sure there is a check in the box that say "Share this Folder" 4: Set your share name in the dropdown box. 5: Click on the Permissions button. 6: Make sure there is an entry for "Everyone" in the Share Permissions field. 7: If there is not an entry for this click on the Add button. 8: Type Everyone in the field box and click on the check names button and hit OK. 9: In the Share Permissions field there should now be an "Everyone" entry. 10: Highlight Everyone and make sure all the allow boxes below are checked and hit OK. 11: Hit Ok again on the Advanced Sharing box. 12: Go to the Security Tab and highlight Everyone to verify there are check marks in the allow column. The Special Permissions does not require a check mark. 13: Hit Close. We have a comprehensive guide to networking and SimConnect in our User Guide. The guide will launch when the question mark on the Active Sky app is pressed. Please see Networked Configuration. Robert
  8. That's great. Here is the KB article if anyone is interested. Robert
  9. Haven't tried it yet, browse to Prepar3D\SimObjects\QW787-800 and rename the Panel folder to or Panel.std and rename Panel.hires to Panel and you should have hi-res panels. Do this for the 800 only as I believe the 900 is aliased to the 800. Here is a vid:
  10. Hello Herbert, You mentioned both programs, which ones? Did you perform a complete uninstall ensuring to remove all saved data? Please ensure that you install and run ASN as administrator. If the issue persists please submit a support ticket. The support link is located below my signature. Thank you. Robert
  11. Hello Jason, While we do not offer support for SimConnect we would be happy to assist you, please log onto the HiFi support portal ( and log a support ticket, be sure to copy the URL from this forum post and include it in the ticket request. Also, please include your AS_P3Dv4_Log_Export.txt which is created when pressing the "Logs" button on the ASP4 app. Thank you, Robert

    Probably a Chewwy easter egg, the folks at PMDG are quite fond of him.... probably the accent. He's an avid flight simmer and has a Twitch account with a bit of a following. Hope this helps.

    ASCA textures?

    Okay, thanks for the feedback. Robert
  14. Hello Reuben, Just checking in, did you proceed with the installation of Active Sky? It is always a good idea to uninstall apps that you will be installing on another new drive. Robert
