  4. Sorry to have brought this up again but I've been doing some experimentation with ASX and am still having the same issues. I've updated FSX to ACCeleration/SP2 and repaired SinConnec and reinstalled ASX.I also downloaded the latest FSUIPC and still got the problem - uninstalled FSUIPC - same: Still have clouds dissapperaing and reappearing, sometimes every 2 minutes.I'm at a loss here, and would like to hear from anyone else having this issue. It's driving me &^%$%# crazy.

  6. OK,I did a short test.Here are the route METARDeparture (YSSY):YSSY 190300Z 07013KT 9999 FEW038 SCT058 23/13 Q1017 NOSIG RMK INTERPOLATEDYSSY 182227Z 190024 06015KT 9999 -SHRA SCT030 SCT045 FM12 36010KT 9999 -SHRA SCT025 BKN035Enroute:MQD:YCNK 190300Z AUTO 14005KT 9999NDV // SCT032 25/17 Q1016 RMK INTERPOLATEDYSRI 182223Z 190018 07010KT 9999 SCT025 SCT040 FM12 VRB05KT 9999 SCT020 RMKDestination (YSCO):YSCO 190300Z AUTO 33007KT 9999NDV // SCT039 SCT100 BKN115 24/15 Q1016 RMK INTERPOLATEDThe weather was consistent, with no abrupt changes, until about 20nm out of YSCO. Up until then there was a blanket of cloud below me at around 3000ft (My flight at 6000ft). I could see a cloud bank ahead of me (on the horizon and getting closer) but, all of a sudden, large clouds popped up in front of me.I had all default ASX setting except "Force Priority Processes" which I had checked and Downloads set to 30min.I'm wondering whether "Dynamic rate of change" is causing problems? If I set my route with appropriate METAR, surely the rate of change would be determined by onroute weather and nothing else?
  7. Well,I've totally reinstalled Windows XP on a clean drive and installed FSX SP1 and ASX/ASG SP2.The problem still exists. * Clouds still "pop" and redraw no matter what the METAR * ASX takes sooooooo long to implement weather * ASX chews CPU cycles (30% at times) when updating weather.So, although the default FSX Real weather as not as accurate at depicting weather, I'll have to go back to it.
  8. OK, thanks Jim. I'll post a metar next time I see it.Another thing I just realised: When I reinstalled ASX, I may have installed ASX SP2 over the original (skipping SP1). Could that be a problem?
  9. I don't have anything else running except NHancer, MyTrafficX and Radar Contact, though it still occurs without RC. I use FSAutostart to turn off a lot of services.I did some further testing and it seems as though it's mainly the first layer of cumulus clouds that are being redrawn and the visibility switches back and forth a bit on takeoff - but only at about 1500 feet.I'm seriously considering a system reinstall.
  10. Subject says it all, really. I sit on the tarmac for 10 minutes for preflight. ASX sets weather OK. Then, after a few minutes the clouds disappear and are redrawn. Seems to happen every 5 mins or so. Happens again on takeoff. I've reinstalled FSX Sp1, ASX, ASX(SP2) etc. It reads the metar correctly but the constant cloud redraw is awful!!.I'll also add that I've set ASX defaults, to no avail.I've had previous problems (pre SP2) but now, with SP2 doing this, I'm disappointed.

  13. I recently took a flight down the east coast of Australia from Hamilton Island(YBHI) to Brisbane(YBBN) and noticed that on 2 or 3 occasions, when slightly off the coast, I got Oceanic UHF chatter. As this is not realistic (losing the centre controller chatter when only 5 - 10 nm offshore) is there some way to change this or would this be classed as a "future request"?
  14. Gee...I really started something with this thread:P Thanks Jim, for the updates on ASX and how FSX handles visibility. I guess I've been blaming ASX too much for FS shortcomings and, believe it or not, became frustrated with TOO MANY add-on options to choose from, with 2 weather engine developers playing leapfrog. ;-) This is a good thing.I'm thankful we have such great prospects with FSX.I'm currently trying out some workaround for the visibility issue using ASX and FEX. I'll see how that goes and look forward to an ASX update.
