I need this sorted by tomorrow so i need help and quick
You always do. Then you disappear without saying if the help worked or not, then pop up with another question.
Sorry for complete OT.
Its alright. Found it. Dunno why at the start it says its in 'Civil' when u c the coordinates when u click 'Astro'
New version to fix an issue with the static tool (the historical data collected by the new "weather underground" provider was incorrect when the month or the day was lower than 10 -> forgot to encoded in 2 characters)
New version 126.96.36.199 available (just the file "rFactor2WorldWeather.exe" has changed)
Hello Gerald , first thank you for your very useful tool for us all. Here the problem continues , even in its new version , the image I'm sending you can realize that I theoretically asked the same information (with time difference ) but only in the Qualy was applied correctly. Other information : If I leave 1h race long and seek temperature until 12:59 the program retrieves the information correctly, from 13:00 he gets this wrong information.
Would you provide the full date you used for Shanghai. Your jpg cuts off the year, and I'l like to see what it shows on the WeatherUnderground website. Oops, nevermind, it's in the box on the right.
If you look this up on weatherunderground.com under their History tab, you'll see that for Mar 7, 2016 the conditions for the track between 1230 and 1630 are "Unknown." I wrote a python script, and it also shows this:
Time: 1100 Partly Cloudy
Time: 1130 Haze
Time: 1200 Haze
Time: 1230 Unknown
Time: 1300 Unknown
Time: 1330 Unknown
Time: 1400 Unknown
Time: 1430 Unknown
Time: 1500 Unknown
Time: 1530 Unknown
Time: 1600 Unknown
Time: 1630 Unknown
Here's the WU link: http://www.wunderground.com/history...reqdb.zip=00000&reqdb.magic=1&reqdb.wmo=58362
Gerald's script probably doesn't take into account an "Unknown" condition report.
What about this error? I can't understand, I've never had any problem.

Solved, I set wrong lat/long.
I've found this website invaluable for F1 information for RF2 http://www.statsf1.com/en/circuits.aspx . If you click on the circuit, it will take you to a webpage for that circuit. From there, you can click on a google maps button and it takes you to a map of the track. The lat/long for the track is included in the URL. For example, the google map url for Shanghai is firstname.lastname@example.org,121.21911,5111m/data=!3m1!1e3 and the lat/long is the 31.341322,121.21911. Of course, this is only for F1 tracks.
I have a question.
Say if I collect weather before a practice session and save it, start an online practice session, and then before the end of the practice session I recollect the weather and save it, when you skip to qualifying, would it use the original collected weather from before the practice session or would it use the weather collected at the end of the practice session?
I'm not an expert on this, but this is what I believe. I believe the wet file is loaded each time you load the track. So if you completely exit the session and then restart it, it will reload the wet file. However, the weather tool also writes the PQR start times in the player.JSON file, and I believe that only gets read when RF2 is launched.
Iam using user in weather mode.
Can I have more info about:
1. What i can do if I want a race start with wet and finish with dry?
2. How I can have the weather map ?
thanks in advance.

If we cache the results, we could probably still use the developer level.
Maybe you can do that ? https://robots.thoughtbot.com/caching-api-requests
I am trying to use the Static Wheater tool, but when I launch the rFactor2WorldWeather.exe, I got an error: XML parsing error
Hesadecimal value 0x3C, is an invalid attribute character. Line 40, position 41.
Thanks for your help
I use the realtime weather and have several servers running on different ports, but I am seem unable to set different weather grabbing schedules? The start scheduler just seems to stay the same for both servers.
I may have asked this but is it possible to have a weather delay.
What I mean is...
Let's say our race starts at 8 pm, but in real life at the location the local time is 4 pm... but you want what the weather was like at 1 pm, so a delay of 7 hours.
Perhaps a setting (instead of manually recording the weather) to have "local time in the past".
In future there may be an evening race at a UK venue at 8 pm UK time, but you want what the weather was like at 1 pm onwards that day.
Am I making sense?
Also, I found a little bug in the realtime weather app... I wasn't able to schedule two servers to record weather, even if I set my retrieval interval to be double the requested amount. The calendars both resort to the last time set. Is it possible to have the record and schedule in the same section? Once it has stopped recording then it will start the scheduler when specified? Error checking that you can't record more hours than there are from retrieval to when the playback starts.
