[FSX] NW_SET_PENDING


 Share

Recommended Posts

My problem is.

NW_SET_PENDING works in FSX like NW_SET.

FSX:

   283594 NW_SET weather command received, ICAO=EBFS
   283594 >NewSet:  **** New Weather being set: ICAO=EBFS (Dyn=0)
   283594 >NewSet:  Pressure=1022.0, Drift=0.0
   283594 >NewSet:  Visibility[0]: range=0.2sm (338m), from=830ft, to=2020ft
   283594 >NewSet:  Visibility[1]: range=1.2sm (1947m), from=2020ft, to=5300ft
   283594 >NewSet:  Visibility[2]: range=93.1sm (149766m), from=5300ft, to=108270ft
   283594 >NewSet:  Temperature[0]: alt=0ft, Day=-5 C, NightVar=2 C, DewPt=-5 C

FS2004:

168609 NW_SET_PENDING weather command received, ICAO=ETNG 
   168844 >NewSet:  **** New Weather [4] being set: ICAO=ETNG (Dyn=0)
   168844 >NewSet:  Pressure=1025.0, Drift=0.0
   168844 >NewSet:  Visibility: range=0.9sm (1513m), from=200ft, to=1680ft
   168844 >NewSet:  Temperature[0]: alt=0ft, Day=-3 C, NightVar=2 C, DewPt=-4 C
   168844 >NewSet:  Temperature[1]: alt=3000ft, Day=-3 C, NightVar=2 C, DewPt=-4 C
   168844 >NewSet:  Temperature[2]: alt=5000ft, Day=1 C, NightVar=0 C, DewPt=-18 C

My problem is.

NW_SET_PENDING works in FSX like NW_SET.

Checking the code I see that in FSX only there's a special change which treats the very first "NW_SET_PENDING" as an "NW_SET". It should change after the first NW_ACTIVATE.

I don't now remember why this was necessary -- something to do with how the weather system works in SimConnect. The weather setting code hasn't been changed for nearly 5 years now and I am afraid I don't remember the technicalities.

Is there an NW_ACTIVATE further down the log? If so, aren't there any NW_SET_PENDING's logged thereafter?

I think the idea is to set the complete weather normally initially, rather than delay it, but then do the delayed implementation subsequently, whilst the user is actively flying.

Mind you, a lot of the value of the PENDING/ACTIVATE system is lost in SimConnect because of its delayed morphng mechanism in any case. In FS9 FSUIPC was actualy overwriting the current weather settings. In FSX the timing is all controlled by SimConnect. It is most out of FSUIPC's control.

Yes, end of "NW_SET_PENDING" weather data for all airport.

In both log files. FSX and FS2004

   198203 NW_ACTIVATE weather command received

- Write "NW_CLEAR"

- write "NW_SET_PENDING with weather"

- write "NW_SET_PENDING with weather"

- ....

- ....

- write "NW_ACTIVATE"

Should I write the Weather in FSX with SimConnect?

Yes, end of "NW_SET_PENDING" weather data for all airport.

Yes, it works? What does 'end of "NW_SET_PENDING" weather data for all airport.' mean?

My question was:"Is there an NW_ACTIVATE further down the log? If so, aren't there any NW_SET_PENDING's logged thereafter?", and you answer "yes", so you are saying it is okay after all?

Your log shows okay:

In both log files. FSX and FS2004

Right? All answered now? You message isn't clear I'm afraid.

Should I write the Weather in FSX with SimConnect?

If you want to. I'm not sure what your problem is at present as you haven't explained. If there is a problem then please describe it. What is it you want to do which doesn't appear to be working correctly? Is it simply a misunderstanding or any actual operational difficulty?

Regards

Pete

Okay, NW_SET_PENDING work dont in FSX.

One more question:

How can I set the Dynamic Weather on zero in FSX?

_NewWeather w;
w.uCommand = NW_DYNAMICS;
w.uDynamics = 0;
FSUIPC_Write(0xC800,1024,&w,&dwResult);
FSUIPC_Process(&dwResult);

This function set dynamic value=1

And

What is uSpare in struct "NewWeather"? I have not found "uSpare2" in the documentation.

unsigned short uSpare2[8];

Do you see the PENDING request logged AFTER the first ACTIVATE? THAT's the question I asked and which you never answer!!!

How can I set the Dynamic Weather on zero in FSX?

I think FSX never has completely zero dynamics unless you change to GLOBAL mode, new in FSX. That's what global mode was for -- non-dynamic training weather.

What is uSpare in struct "NewWeather"? I have not found "uSpare2" in the documentation.

Anything called "spare" means "unused" or "reserved".

When will you answer my question? I will investigate here when I know the answer -- but it will not be till tomorrow now as I have to go out. An answer would be appreciated please!

Regards

Pete
