The new Active Sky Next ?

Recommended Posts

Pete,

 

ASN was released this evening and I have a quick question.  From the screen shot you can notice the Hook Errors I'm receiving only after I installed ASN.  If I do not trust the as_btstrp.dll I will not receive the error.  I've read from older posts that these have something to do with weather.dll and wind smoothing options.    

 

Everything actually appears to be working but since I saw these errors I figured I would report them.   If there is anything I can do to assist here than please don't hesitate to ask.

 

Thanks

Tony

Ah, HiFi beat me to the release! I'm at the final stages of preparing version 4.924 for release today. This suppresses those error messages when it detects as_btstrp.dll running.

 

ASN uses the same hooks into the weather system as FSUIPC does for wind, temperature and pressure smoothing. There is no need and no point in FSUIPC also trying to do the same thing in any case, so the FSUIPC hooks aren't needed. Please do not worry about them -- update to 4.924 when available. There's also a new facility in 4.924 which can provide a display of ASN's plan weather weather data on WideFS clients.

 

Andy -- you beat me to it, too! ;-)

 

Regards

Pete

If ASN integrates / maninpulates weather the same as FSUIPC does, does this mean that if using ASN with FSUIPC 4.926, the settings for weather smoothing and turbulence / gusts / varience suppression in FSUIPC will have no effect? In only ask because i am in the process of reinstalling Windows, and was wondering what settings in FSUIPC i should use. With Active Sky Evo and 2012, the guys over at FSLabs suggested this in the fsuipc.ini file:

TurbulenceRate=0.5,2.5

TubulenceDivisor=40,40,80,80

 

If this is no longer needed, then i can cross that off my installation checklist! :)

 

Thanks,

You can cross it off the list, ASN takes over completely in this regard and ignores whatever FSUIPC has in its ini file, same goes for FSX.cfg too. The only thing it doesn't override is the cloud density slider, make sure that is full right in FSX and all will be good.
