    The core is just used to find the modmgr exe in order to extract an unknown GDB file (to automatically find the lat/long). So if the GDB is already extracted the core path is not used

    I got this error message, and the plugin is not working.
    "cannot retreive weather, latitude is unknown"

    The plugin worked on last week.

    Look the GDB of your race track to check if the latitude is well defined

    Hi!

    This plugin looks like I was looking for. One question: can I use this in offline mode when I want to race against the AI?

    Thank you.

    Thx, it's working. Except for Bathurst for some reason, it doesn't want to change the weather values in the game. Other tracks are OK. Any idea?

    I figured out. Bathurst coordinates are wrong in the xml, it points to a place east to Japan. :) Latitude is not 33.xxx but -33.xxx .

    Just for a tryout I added Oulton Park (in the .xml and also in the datasheet) but it doesn't show up in the dropdown list in the program.
    Also for example Bahrain is also in the .xml file but it also doesn't show up in the dropdown list.

    edit: Oulton is OK now, the directory path was wrong (at first I didn't know what to put there).

    added Oulton Park (1.11)
    edit2: added ISI AMP (1.0).
    edit3: added Knutstorp Ring (1.0).
    edit5: added Norschleife (2.01)
    edit6: added Newerburg (Nuerburg) 1.0 (mianiak)
    edit7: added Donington Park (1.01)
    edit8: added Longford (0.98)

    edit4: the 7timer forecaster doesn't work at all.
    Also the wind speed datas given by uk.weather.com don't match up with the values on the uk.weather.com page. Uk.weather.com shows windspeed in mph but in the program (and in rF2) it's kmh.

    edit9: there is another problem. If the track has multiple directories (like ISI AMP which has 5 layouts) only one gets updated when I save the weather settings. Also if the track has only one directory but in that directory there are multiple .wet files (like Oulton Park which has four .wet files) only one gets updated.
    Are these known issues?

    Hi Gerald, 7timer stopped working some time ago, I'm not sure if someone already reported it.

    jacksonville is based on daytona, but not a copy of it. personally id use the coordinates of daytona speedway but jacksonville FL is a real town (presumably very close to daytona, but not sure of this).

    i dont recall what mountain peak is based on, or if its even any specific oval, but i think they also give a location for it you could use.
