QuotePlease download again Beta 4. I added some lines of code to avoid PSXAloft to crash when the activeflightplanwx file template is invalid. It will only give you an error message in the Wx File status field. Let me know if you get this message.
Quote from: Derek Adam on Tue, 20 Oct 2015 00:23The question I now have is:- Whilst setting up a flight plan how does the resulting weather get to activeflightplanner.txt. Does it go via the export function or is it automatic?
Quote from: G-CIVA on Thu, 15 Oct 2015 10:42Reading data from a 'static' file will come with some significant disadvantages.Obviously the 744 is capable of flights of in excess of 12 hours, in this time 'Spot Winds' at altitude will 'change'.PFPX does a fantastic job of predicting this 'change' to within a tolerance of 5-10% when set to download WX from the RW source. ASN also does a fantastic job of matching this 'change' to within a tolerance of 5-10% when set to download WX from ASN server (which BTW matches what the PFPX WX server 'spits out' very closely). By limiting what sounds like an excellent programme to only using a 'Spot Wind' 'snapshot' surely you are selling the capability of your efforts a little short. Are you not able to just let your programme connect to ASN, inject the required data into PSX & then run happily in the background injecting live wind data into PSX on the fly?

Quote from: tango4 on Mon, 19 Oct 2015 16:18When reaching cruise level, the winds did not correspond to the ones I had in the flightplan. This was a flight from LFPG to LFBO at FL390. I investigated a bit and found that the winds injected were precisely the winds in my activeskywx file, but from the layer above ! It corresponded precisely to the winds at FL440 (I think it is 440, but I don't have active sky in front of me, but it was definitely the active sky layer above my cruise level). It felt like there was some sort of "offset" in the file.
Quote from: Derek Adam on Wed, 21 Oct 2015 23:09Then boom invalid wx file template. Check file So PSPX is not passing on the flight plan to activeflightplanner.txt although it is specified in "Configure Weather settings" in PSPX.I am using Build 5751 in ASN.
