    I'm guessing here, but I imagine this might require ISI to pay a license fee to whatever organisation provides the weather data. However, they should make every effort to facilitate a plugin that would allow RF2 to pull in the data easily.

    Not sure.... weather data is freely accessibile for everyone anyway... so why would they need a licence to use it?

    It might fall under 'commercial use', whereas you and I have free access to the data as regular consumers, and ISI would be selling a product using that data, etc. I am just guessing, but I mean there may be reasons like this that prohibit ISI from doing it themselves due to costs or legal issues.

    The norwegian weather service http://www.yr.no have free to use weatherdata in XML-format.

    I guess that the only thing that should be done is to provide the info about where is collecting the weather data. The publicity obtained is probably the best and fairest fee. We already have seen the "provided by accuweather" in some other places for example.

    Who knows? Maybe in the near future it is the weather companies bidding to be the weather providers for sim titles:D?

    If there was a feature to use real-time weather, date & time (sun up/down) it would be the icing on an already delicious cake :).

    I would happily pay for such a mod as an add-on, even.

    weather working fine for me (Silverstone and others), I suggest a full re-install just incase something got screwed up a long the way.

    It was a full reinstall, which is why it's odd

    are you 100% positive you've changed the weather for the corresponding session?

    I've seen a few times on here where people are adamant they've done it right but later come back to say "oh yeah I was changing weather for Race not Practice!"

    rF2 creates a weather file (SILVERSTONE_GPLAYOUTs.wet for example) in the settings folder. It is a simple text file. Is your file write protected? Can you check the time stamp?

    Downloaded build 300 & did a fresh install

    This build is not stable on my system, crashed after few seconds then the next time crashed after 5 minutes then again a few times

    My pc is rock solid stable on everything else (include all prior builds of rf2)



    I've been running the latest nvidia beta driver (326.80) which seems fine on everything else but could be something to do with it

    Will try again on next release of drivers from nvidia or next build from ISI

    Last two responses, do you run any plugins and have you checked for updated version, or tried running without to find issue?

    Tim, can we please get the fix for reflections, atleast for SDK so we can work on cars. Its bit hard now as build300 changed lightning but reflections now dont work and i guess that nobody wants to jump from one to another build to test if everything looks good under right light or under right reflection.

    hi Tim

    yes I'm the same adrianstealth who as you know is a big fan of the ISI plug-in delay feature ]-;

    just tried to test after your question with none of the plugins activated ( sim commander motion/vibration/sli-pro etc ) & it did exactly th esame
    ( crashed usually with-in the 1st one minute of entering the sim car )

    again I am using the latest nvidia beta driver which seems solid stable on everything else, I'll try again on next nvidia driver or rf2 build release no probs

    p.s my pc is kept clean & stable, never a problem with any other software or prior rf2 builds to this one ( 300 )
