Hi,
 
First be aware weather is saved as part of a scenario so if your flight always loads the same scenario then you will always get the identical weather.
 
Now use the Add-on Menu to open the OpusFSI Spy window, possibly a single OpusFSI Weather Report window. You may find it useful to use their Options and set their Opacity to 60%.
 
Also open the OpusFSI Weather dialog and check its options to make sure you are requesting Live Weather (not Global, Historic, Relocated, or World Weather Theme). You can just use all weather default options for now.
 
Now specify your destination ICAO code and intended cruise altitude and click on Full Weather Reload.
 
Watch the Spy window and follow the weather download and generation.
 
You should see the generated live weather loaded into the sim. You can now compare the OpusFSI Local Weather Report with the sim's ATIS to confirm all is OK.
 
Note, by default our Disable Weather on Start Up is ticked so you will have to initiate the first weather generation and load manually.

I have complied with all the above recommendations. I have been using Opus for some years now and never had a problem. Putting in a flight plan, it loads up its weather accordingly, and in addition to it the additional layer of clouds form.

I have cleared all weather themes from the folders that contain them. Opus, ORBX, P3D. When I start the simulator the weather is clear. Only the clear skies weather theme is available in the P3D weather menu. I have even deleted the P3D starting .cfg and let it rebuild. I am not starting a saved flight.
As soon as I start Opus, it puts 2 weather theme files in the P3D weather folder (OpusWeather.wt OpusWeather.WTB) and it immediately starts to build a layer of clouds and they keep growing in intensity.  No matter where I start it does this. It does the same clouds each time when it makes the WTB file. 3,586 KB. 
Is this file a function of OPUS? This is the offending file. I cannot stop it from happening.  
Thank You,

Hi,

The two files must be copied into the sims folder, that’s quite normal. You must check your OpusFSI Weather dialog settings as mentioned above.

Are you generating the weather on the ground or in flight. Remind me what version of OpusFSI and where you’re Aircraft is located. Also let me know what Weather dialog options you have set including whether you are using Selective Update mode. Did you monitor Spy and see both GRIB and METARs downloaded ok.

The WT file is the description text file associated with the OpusWeather. The WTB file is the generated Dynamic Weather Theme file in standard sim WTB (Weather Theme Binary) file format. So perfectly normal.

Make sure you have no other weather engine active, including any IVAO weather.

Follow my instructions to generate and check your injected weather. Compare it with ATIS.

Have you messed with the cirrus cloud bitmap (texture) at all. Is the cloud pattern you see a cirrus layer with an unusual cirrus bitmap file or texture injected through some other means.

You can email me screen captures of all your OpusFSI Weather dialogs if you wish, as jpg images should be fine.

A screenshot of the SPY. I have no other weather engine started. I had REX environment started on startup, but have stopped this after this problem persisted.
I used REX Texture direct & soft clouds to build new textures some time ago. Is this messing it up?  I cannot understand though it is the same cloud pattern each and every time.  The image I posted originally is what I see. The band on the horizon and a large thin layer of clouds directly overhead with repeating .bmp

Thanks

I see you are using the VATSIM server which may not be kept up to date. In fact all the METARs seem to be date tagged 272155Z. In other words they are all from yesterday 21:55 Zulu. Probably never changing.

I would recommend you switch to the Default NOAA server. Best open each Weather dialog and click on the Default option and make sure NOAA is selected.

Yesterday is when I made the screen shot. I will comply with the changes suggested and take a look.

You should also make sure all the GRIB options are default and Spy shows correct GRIB download and decoding.

Don’t forget to check your Weather dialog options. Send me an image. Looks like you’ve just been loading fixed set of METARs from VATSIM and not sure if you have GRIB data in use.

To rule out a funny cirrus cloud bitmap you can also disable cirrus in our Preferences dialog and the Full Weather Reload again. If the funny cloud patter disappears try re enabling cirrus again with another Full Reload. Any funny texture will be down to your texture package.

To test things also quicker to disable Selective Updates.

Hello everybody,

I have two questions and hope someone has an idea or a good tip! ;-)

1. First the simple one, I've read it somewhere before, but don't remember where, sorry!
My OpusFSI client is by default at Terminal 132 in EDDP, just like the server.
When the OpusFSI Clinet connects to the server at the P3D start, the client is placed shortly after Edinburgh (across the runway). After P3D is completely loaded on the server, the client comes back to EDDP and is absolutely synchronized.
You can configure that, but where?

2nd question, a little more difficult.
I use the A320 FMGS from JeeHell. A WX radar is also included here.
Unfortunately, JeeHell's WX radar only works with ActiveSky.
I also have ActiveSky, if I use this on the server, WX-Radar also works. However, OpusFSI only transfers its own weather to the client.
The weather from OpusFSI is great, no question. But I would also like to have the WX radar.
Does anyone have a similar setup?
Can you somehow use the OpusFSI weather for JeeHell FMGS WX radar?
Alternatively, ActiveSky can be transferred to the client via OpusFSI.

OpusFSI a great software, I'm looking forward to the LiveTraffic extension!

Many thanks and best regards from Leipzig
Mario

Hi,

1. That’s just normal startup synchronisation. When you start the client it initialises it’s location as defined in your saved default or startup scenario. Then when OpusFSI connects to its server its location is communicated from the sever. What the client does depends on your startup procedure. Whatever, it will end up synchronised.

You could consider starting your server first and loading your flight. Then start and connect each client in turn. But it doesn’t really matter. You could also initialise using identical default P3D scenarios then relocate the server to your desired departure.

2. The weather OpusFSI synchronises is defined in it’s generated OpusWeather.WTB theme file. Our Dynamic Weather Theme file. You cannot sync weather loaded internally in the sim.

However, weather radar has NOTHING to do with the source of weather or weather engine. AS just try and force you to use their weather engine but the wx radar is just a function within its DLL so you may be able to try and leave this dll loaded and use OpusFSI weather. AS has always tried to prevent you using any weather injection. So just try using OpusFSI weather with the AS DLL loaded but NOT injecting AS weather.

An alternative is to use REX wx Radar since REX do NOT try and block other weather engines or stop you from using alternate weather sources. That’s why we’ve always recommend REX Wx Radar.

Then you’ll be able to enjoy the more detailed and realistic OpusFSI weather and have Wx Radar.

Once again. Wx Radar Data is extracted direct from within the sims memory map. It has NOTHING to do with, and is totally INDEPENDENT of the actual source of weather injection.

Stay safe.

Regards
Stephen

P.S.

The Live Traffic Sync option is progressing very well. I have been testing server-client connections today and have all ground traffic roughly synchronised (I haven’t included software to monitor and re sync yet, but this does not involve additional comms, the data is already perfectly sync’d within the client program data). I’m now in the process of coding procedures to allow the Live Traffic Reset option to be used and coping with various server/client connect and disconnects.

I am also looking at using a test object moving back and forth in front of your aircraft so you can easily test the traffic sync and possibly even tweak the sync on each client if there are any slight delays incurred due to the comms and processing.

The Live Traffic Sync updates are very efficient.

Hi Stephen,

thank you for your quick reply.
I can only test that with the WX radar next week. Unfortunately, REX is of no use to me because, to my knowledge, it does not work with JeeHell WX-Radar.

Start sync. - this is not a big problem, just a blemish ;-)
Client and server have identical standard flights, both are on the G132 - EDDP
When the SIM is switched on, the client is usually first fully charged, the aircraft is at gate 132, the OpusFSI client is running and waiting for a connection.
P3D now starts on the server PC, the OpusFSI server is started on the start screen, even before the loading bar appears.
Now the client is put to Edinburgh (across the runway).
Shortly before the server was completely loaded on P3D, the client is set back to Gate 132 - EDDP and everything is fine.

I just don't quite understand why the client is moved briefly when connecting OpusFSI Server / Client. Where does this info come from?

But as I said, this is not a mega problem!

On the topic of live traffic sync.
Would GSX also be synchronized here?
I can imagine that this is very complicated, but it would be really mega!

Thanks and best regards
have a good weekend
Mario

Yes. That’s your startup sequence, nothing to do with OpusFSI software. Your server starts in Edinburgh in its start up screen, then relocates to the scenarios location.

Recommended Start Up Procedure For Live View and Live Camera Operation

 Run Prepar3D on all systems and wait for them initialize. Wait for your flight to fully load and initialize on all systems. We recommend loading a default flight with nil wind.
 Run the P3DSERVER program on your main SERVER system.
 Run the P3DCLIENT programs on each of the client systems and watch them connect to the
server.
 When all the Prepar3D systems have settled and fully initialized, decide on your chosen
Weather option for the flight and load it through the Weather option of your SERVER program.
 One final check that all your cloud formations are in synch and all desired zoom settings are set then you are ready to fly.

Checklist:

1. Run Prepar3D on all systems and load flight.
2. Run the SERVER program.
3. Run all CLIENT programs.
4. Check/reload Dynamic weather or Choose Weather Theme.
5. Start Flying.

Don’t forget to specify your Destination before generating the weather.

So run the P3DSERVER first with the servers flight loaded and ready. Then run and connect each P3DCLIENT systems/programs.

No Weather Map on client?

I'm running Opus on W7 with FSX. I run the client on a W10 pc. I use that only for weather (so in NO CONNECTION mode).

When I start the client and try to open the Live Weather Assistant the map shows for a second or so the map and the METAR information from the airport I'm at (in the left window). Then the map blanks out and I get the message 'Outside Weather Map Area'.

BTW The weather map on the main FSX pc works OK.

How to remedy this?

JWS

Hi,
 
Tried mine and can't find any problem. Upgrade to the latest release version of v5 (install on both server and client) and give that a go.
 
 
What airport are you at and what map type and data have you selected on the LWA Map.

Stephen,

Deleted FSWILA.dat file. No success. Re-installed latest version Opus. Same result.

After the Client started and I opened LWA. For a brief moment there was a satellite image of the UK, then the image changed to the picture below.

    

This is what it looks like on the FSX pc.

Ok. The map library software downloads its tiles for display. It can also use a cache memory area.

Try changing the Map Server Cache option within the LWA Maps options, just in case the map has corrupt cache data.

Do you have any internet problems from your client pc.

If cached, the tiles might be stored here...

Or something similar. Just in case you need to delete the cache.

The brief image at the start was probably cached tiles from your previous location. Then it jumps to your new location and the new map tiles need to be downloaded. So it’s most likely a download or corruption problem.

Let me know about your internet access and if you have any joy toggling the map cache option.

Nothing I can do in the software though as it’s all done within the map library software. I do not download or handle the map tiles, just specify the map parameters etc.

Stephen,

I disabled the Map Server Cache option within the LWA Maps options, and deleted the cache tile. 

After that the LWA jumped from UK to the Netherlands/EHAM for a split second and then went blank again. I have internet on this client pc (in fact I'm writing this from that pc right now).

Just to be sure, when the client is properly connected the label "NETWORKED CLIENT" stays white? Or should it turn green also (like the server)?

Stays white. Have you tried selecting a different map type, same one as the server.

It could be the server down at the moment so no tiles available.

But if that would be the case, why is my server pc showing a perfect map and my client not?

OK, here's the plan, I'll check every combination of maps on both server & client after dinner.

Have a nice meal.

Bing satellite and bing hybrid are different sets of tiles. When the location is changed (client gets servers aircraft position) the map software has to download the tiles to display the map. Unless it’s cached. If the tiles are not available then no map will be displayed.

I will double check all my map types from here but was using the LWA Map today with satellite and street views.

Well Stephen, I worked my way through several maps to no avail. Then, for some reason, I had another look at the client config page. And it struck me that the "Axis Offset" fields were populated with figures. Hadn't noticed them before but it appeared that they had been staring me in the face all the time. Haven't the faintest idea what their purpose is and how they got there in the first place. Anyway, then it suddenly dawned to me that the message "Outside Weather Map Area" could relate to these strange figures. So I deleted them, closed the config page and reloaded a map. Guess what?

My client was back in business.

So I'm very happy now.

Have a nice weekend.

Excellent. Those settings are rarely used and included to overcome problems in the sim, different sims and versions having different aircraft axes. So these old settings allowed users to tweak offsets to make their server and clients compatible with each other.

So well spotted. Very glad to hear you are back up and running.

Stephen,

Maps are in good order now on the client. But noticed that the aircraft symbol is not moving (same goes for AI traffic). Could you vector me please to the right spot to look for a solution?

Thx
JWS
