  1. Thanks for the prompt help Chris! Now I think we have limit the problem into a connection between PMDG and my ASN. Strangely, PMDG interacts with ASN quite well, it can load wind data uplink to FMC from ASN database, ASN tracks my aircraft moving, and even the ASN shows my FMC route. So I would say they are communicating well, except for the fact that ASN is not communicating with the weather radar. At this moment, I am still on to investigating the FSUIPC (the folder in root directory > modules), or the dll.xml in the Roaming folder, but I suspect the former one more. I am not sure whether I have accidentally changed anything in it during my reinstall. Anyway, looking forward to your checking with the dev team. Thanks :)
  2. After trying to reinstall the 777, I found out that the TEST button won't work, no matter with or without the ASN. So I guess ASN here is not the problem, as its presence or absence does not affect any results. TEST not working means no colour pattern observed. Can you tell me which file is related to the 777's weather radar? It seems everything is working fine, only the weather radar malfunctioned, am I missing some files accidentally in the installer? While the newest version of 777 shouldn't overwrite anything in the as_srv, so it eliminates the problem of ASN. I'm starting to suspect the dll.xml or the FSUIPC. But other aircraft have their weather radar working perfectly fine, so .. any unique settings from the PMDG that made it only the 777 malfunction? Thanks.
  3. Thanks Chris. I will be clean reinstalling the 777 again. I will be uninstalling AS connect first, then delete the whole as_srv folder, then clean reinstall everything about PMDG. Then I will install the 777 back, before I install AS connect, making sure ASN works. From what I understand from your post, it means the aircraft shouldn't put anything into the as_srv folder (no as_connect.dll, no as_btstrp.dll file from the installer). I paste the dll.xml here, not sure whether it is the as_btstrp.dll part that caused the problem. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>Mindstar Hypergauge</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>Modules\HyperGauge.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>Addon Manager</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>bglmanx.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>ObjectFlow_YBCS.dll</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\ORBX\FTX_AU\FTXAA_YBCS\scenery\ObjectFlow_YBCS.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>iFly 747-400 Menu</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Modules\iFly744.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>Object Placement Tool</Name> <Disabled>True</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Mission Creation Kit\object_placement.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>Traffic Toolbox</Name> <Disabled>True</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Environment Kit\Traffic Toolbox SDK\traffictoolbox.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>Visual Effects Tool</Name> <Disabled>True</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\Environment Kit\Special Effects SDK\visualfxtool.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>VistaMare Core</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>VistaMare\ViMaCoreX.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>PMDG Interface</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>PMDG\DLLs\PMDG_Interface.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>RAASPRO</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>.\RAASPRO\RAASPRO.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>PMDG Options</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>PMDG\DLLs\PMDGOptions.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>PMDG Events</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>PMDG\DLLs\PMDGEvents.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>PMDG Sounds</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>PMDG\DLLs\PMDGSounds.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>PMDG HUD interface</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>PMDG\DLLs\PMDG_HUD_interface.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>IvAp</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\IVAO\IvAp v2\ivap_fsx_bootstrap.dll</Path> <Commandline /> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>FSUIPC 4</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>Modules\FSUIPC4.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>as_connect</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>as_srv\as_btstrp.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document>
  4. Yup, I have also sent a ticket to them about the issue. but from the PMDG side, I would like to know whether or not installing the newest version of 777 will affect (install new or replacing current files) in the as_srv folder ? So any installations of the 777 will simply modify some files in the as_srv that causes the problem. As mentioned, I am suspecting that it’s the replacing of the as_btstrp.dll that causes the problem. This is because there is no other problems with weather radar on non-PMDG models.
  5. I'm using FSX Non steam version, PMDG 777 and ASN. I just reinstalled my 777 with the newest update version, and discovered that my weather radar is not working with ASN. Not working here means even if I "TEST" the radar, there is only aural callout of windshear and the red "windshear" text, but I don't see any colour patterns on the ND. All precipitations cannot be observed either. After checking in details, I discovered that it is the as_btstrp.dll file in the as_srv folder that created the problem, I tried to paste my backed up old version of the file to the folder and replacing it, the weather radar test now works, with patterns observed. But ASN tells me to update the AS connect or else it won't function. Then I update the AS connect again, but it goes back to the problem that the weather radar cannot be observed. I have checked that this is the only file that was modified following the update of AS connect. I have sent a ticket to PMDG, yet it seems they can't really figure out what problem it is. I have been flying the PMDG 777 for a few years, and always with the newest version of ASN, everything worked just perfectly and weather radar was functioning. Strangely, this problem only happens with PMDG 777 with ASN (I don't know about other PMDG products as I didn't buy any others), but the weather radar in other manufacturers' aircraft work just fine. So I'm here to see if anyone figures out any solution to this. Thanks :)
