Hello guys.

Considering that Wideview is currently unable to sync weather from Active Sky 2016 across diferent pc's, has anyone tried to run a separate copy of ASN in each computer and have each copy inject weather into itss own FSX/P3D ? Considering that the source for weather depiction will be the same, are the results similar in each computer ? I now that FS Global Weather has the capacity to be used with Wideview, but I find ASN stunning.

Haven't tried that personally, BUT I highly doubt it will work or maintain synchronization.

Plus even if it works it will be a enormous load on sim connect and thus the sim itself

Hi guys, thanks for your answers.

I understand. I sent a message to Luciano (from WIndeview) asking about AS, and here's what he answered me back:

Quote:
Hi Eduardo,

Yes, WV synchronizes the weather generated by AS, but only the raw METAR, not the textures of the clouds that could be altered once you choose a weather theme in AS. For proper synchronization, AS needs to be installed on server only. In the manual of WV you will find additional very important things to know about weather synchronization.

Best Regards,
Luciano


So, from what I understood, Wideview will sinchronize the clouds positions but the textures and types may differ across the screens ?

Thanks

Eduardo

Yes. Wideview may be able to position the clouds, but the shape and orientation probably wont match which means they wont blend across the screens.

For Real WX, FSGRW has best cloud synchronization

I use FSGRW and I love it.

It synchronizes perfectly over the 3 screens. It is a pretty simple program, totally easy to use. Plus it does not chew up your PC's or FSX's resources.
