Very rarely I get a message saying real weather could not be dowloaded but then I just restart fs and that's it. What problems are you having exactly?

It says something like

"The internet connection could not be started, please retry your connection and check your settings".

The PC was connected to the internet at the time.

The last time this happened I reinstalled FS but this didn't help, so I reformatted my PC - only to find that the fault was a temporray one at Jeppesons end  banghead

It would appear to be a temporary issue at Jeppesen's end as my Internet connection is up and I have the error saying it couldn't download real-world weather and to check you internet connection and try again. Should be fixed soon, I'd think (and hope). Happened to me once before.

This usually happens once every few months, Jeppesen do maintenance on their servers etc, and can be down from anything as little as a couple of hours to at the very most a couple of days.

It's nothing wrong with your PC or your FS, just sit tight and it will be back before you know it!!

Why would you use crappy FS9 real weather in the first place? ActiveSky is the only way to go.

Cos not everyone can afford it. And there may be many other reasons.. personal preferences etc. And fs9 weather is NOT crappy.

Correct! the thing people get wrong is that you need to turn on high alitude wind update aswell! becaus eif you dont the wind data will be taken from gound METAR info. and so the aircraft will be hit badly by wind changes. Look under the weather settings and turn it on  Silly FS9 weather will then no longer cause your plane to stall on massive wind changes...

BTW im at a friends now. and in 3-4 hours i will be back home. And im wondering if the server is back on?

Do you mean the wind-aloft data? If it's off, there is hardly any wind up there, only on approach at say 3000' or so. However, with winds aloft you can still get the aircraft to almost stall when it's sudden. However, I've noticed it's a bit better when you have rate of change set to mild.

BTW, still real-weather is still not up, just tried. Which is too bad as I'm in YEG now and the winds are really kicking up  Smile

Man was I pissed this didn't work last night...I was stoked to shoot some approaches at SEA with the winds we were having! I suppose my power went out anyways, so I wouldn't have been doing it long even if I could d/l the weather.

Hey, the server being down forced me to buy activesky 6 yesterday..

The programm is really good and createes virtual weather stations to get better wind data enroute. It also estimates wind speed for your route etc.
Another nice feature is the METAR it gives you while still being far from the destination without having to tune in into the ATIS freq.

and you don't have to modify the weather stations .txt file every time you install a new airport in FS9.

I'm having problems too. Doesn't it always go down at this time of the year? I seem to recall this being an annual event for MSFS.

Yeah, definitely down. Hope they get it fixed up soon. Is this (as CV990A) says, something that happens at this time of year? I remember this happening before, but don't remember when. I just know it has been a while...
