  1. Morning guys, It seems there is an issue with the installer of V1.21

    SkyMaxx Pro 3.2 crashes X-Plane

    Gents, I tried the idea that Martin.S suggested as soon as I found this post. RLBrooks your suggestion is pointing to the same idea BUT on my system it took me almost the whole day to implement due to the fact that I needed to do more housekeeping in my system. (thanks Sundog). Also by just stopping there seemed like a short term solution and I really wanted to get right to the bottom of this (lol I sometimes go overboard ) So after optimizing my system, going back to basics so to speak and removing unnecessary add-ons and plugins the answer that worked for me was exactly the one that Martin.S suggested! The key to this whole puzzle, for me as with Martin.S, lies in NOAA.... DO NOT USE VATSIM AS THE SOURCE FOR WEATHER INFORMATION. I tested my system with the NOAA plugin. RWC and xSquawkbox many times over and they all work together as long as the NOAA plugin uses NOAA as its source for the weather Setting the METAR source back to VATSIM results in the SkyMaxx crash occurring again. Since this change was implemented I have also not had a xSqauwkbox crash again So if you are as stubborn as me, have fun, but this appears to be the answer for me. Thank you one and all for your suggestions!

    SkyMaxx Pro 3.2 crashes X-Plane

    Thanks Andre, I have done that a few times today By using a process of elimination I have come to the conclusion that it is NOT RWC causing this problem. RWC is in fact just the product that is showing us that there is a problem and Sundog is right in my opinion. There must be another reason for this issue... I am still testing BUT my attention is now almost entirely focused on the NOAA weather plugin as the actual source of the problem causing RWC's behavious as well as that of xSquawkbox and X Plane crashing to desktop while interacting with RWC. The fact that my system works perfect now without the NOAA plugin makes me feel better but I am still not 100% happy as the system worked perfectly until this morning. Regards, Nico

    SkyMaxx Pro 3.2 crashes X-Plane

    Okay Gents, After doing a reinstall of the Real Weather Connector and it seems to work BUT only if you remove the NOAA weather plugin and set XP to grab real weather. The moment I reinstall the NOAA plugin and touch the RWC setting and put it on "Always" XP crashes to desktop again. It appears that there is a big compatibility issue here!? Lastly, I have also noticed XSquawkBox stared to crash my X Plane recently and it too contains a weather feature that might clash with the RWC? I have now switch the XSquawkBox feature off (it does not check for weather anymore) and the "XSquawkBox crashing XP" problem seems to have also gone away for now but it would be interesting to hear if this issue was also related to RWC?? I am looking forward to a fix for this! Would be nice to use NOAA again. XSquawkBox weather is mostly irrelevant when you use NOAA but then we should really just know about the issue and advise other users, if applicable. Looking forward to your response Nico

    RWC Connector Crash XPlane

    Thanks, But the solutions offered there still does not solve my problem unfortunately. It was working fine until late yesterday evening and this morning it just does not work anymore...... Regards, Nico
  10. Gents, As of this morning my Real Weather Connector is crashing my X Plane (Steam Edition) without explanation. Eventually after removing and reinstalling the plugin, X Plane started working again and i obviously I found the RWC with the default settings and all I want to do is put it back to "Always"........ The moment i click the checkbox I get a crash to desktop. How do i fix this? Any ideas? I have requested a reset of my download in the store just in case my installer is corrupt and i have to re-download it again Regards, Nico
