I have just recently purchased ATCpro and am wondering is Real World Weather even working in this sim? That's one of the main differences between this and other ATC sims and I was keen to use it, but when I click it nothing changes.

I saw a bug report from 7 months ago but surely that's old and was resolved. Just wondering if there's some special trick to get it working.

The real world NEXRAD display should be working. When you click on the Download Real Weather button on the Duty Desk it should update the NEXRAD display with current conditions. If there are clouds or weather systems when you run a scenario you should be able to see them on the radar scope if you click on the numbered WX buttons. If this is not working for you please take note of the time date and facility and let us know. I have had issues with the cloud cover altitude, visibility and wind direction being different when downloaded by ATCpro from current Metar reports. I am trying to document that sufficiently to confirm if there is a bug.
Best regards,
Dave

Thank you kindly. Maybe then I'm just not doing something correctly. I click the download real world weather, but the wind, speed, temps never changes. I know with user defined I have to click "Generate weather" after I set my conditions. Do I need to do something after clicking download realtime weather?

BTW the current type says "user generated weather" no matter what I click or do.

Real world weather download is not working. Either the server is down, or they've changed the format again.

When you click download, it says "updating" for about 2 seconds, then stops. Weather is not updated.

It was working fine before today.

Dave didn't seem to indicate that four days ago.

Is there a line in a text file I can change to alter the weather to the correct server ?
