  1. I am happy to see that others are using and having success with FSXWX. I will look at ASN in order to be informed, and for the fact that so many are using it.
  2. Besides using the earlier versions of REX, I've never used a weather engine. With REX Texture Direct, I am trying a free weather engine called FSXWX. It is a small .EXE file that I place in a directory and provide the path to the file inside of REX. I ran FSX-SE and while running the weather engine interface in order to see what the weather engine was doing. I flew a route out of Portland toward Seattle. I was impressed at all the effects both visually and physically (in-cloud turbulence, clear air turbulence, gusts, etc) on the plane (Carenado King Air C90B HD). Above all, I liked the low use of system resources. I will read up on how to setup ASN. If it is as easy as using FSXWX, I may consider giving it a try. But, it is hard to beat an effective free option.
  3. i recently installed REX4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds. In the General Setting section there is a spot for the bath to a weather engine. I thought that is what Rex4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds was doing. I once owned an early version of REX2, and it (so i thought) pulled weather information from external sources and generated weather in FSX. So then, What is REX4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds if it is not a Weather Engine? I am not interested in buyng another tool because for weather. That is why I bought REX4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds. I am looking at free options like FSXWX (http://www.plane-pics.de/fsxwx/home.htm) but I want to ask you buys about this specific tool or a better, easy, and stable tool that will work to generate weather for Rex4 Texture Direct with Soft Clouds. Any help you guys can provide will be appreciated. I am running FSX-SE.
  4. thanks for responding. I really like the PMDG aircraft. Now that there are patches for the 737NGX, that plane is on my wish list for FSX-SE. I am all in with FSX-SE and as such, I look only for addons and patches that work with Steam. I will take a closer look through the General Discussion forums for news on the upgrade..
  5. Hi I just installed my retail disk of the 747-400 on my steam version of FSX. The installation went fine. I noticed some frame rate issues with the plane. Because the PMDG 747-400 has been around for a while, I wonder if there are patches or updates that might help the plane work better with FSX. Are there patches for PMGD 747-400? I see patches/service updates for 777 and 737, what about the 747? Thanks Greg Pruitt
