    Feature request: The ability to have the API key hidden unless you press a key to reveal it.

    Any of you have checked what character is in the line and position of the xml?

    I can see that default xml file provokes an error which I would consider a small bug considering the confusion it provokes.

    What you have done may avoid the error but you will not get the static weather working if you have selected WU as provider.
    I am not sure if the other providers are stil available at the moment since I get a different (and not so explicit) error when I change the provider id setting at line 46 to 0 or 1. The plugin's last update was more then one year ago so things might have changed.

    To use WU you need to request an API code in WU website and substitute <Your API KEY here> by the code you will receive from WU.

    There are some instructions which are some lines up in the xml of how to request the API key.

    Each user has his own key, provided by Weather Underground.
    Are you sure that it's working without the key?

    If 7timer still works with the static weather tool then you are fine.

    Could be that it's because I've got rF2 from Steam. Anyway I solved the parsing error, but I still can't enter the program.

    If I do this:

    <Game dataPath="C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor2"/>

    WorldWeather says:

    The dataPath in the WeatherConfig.xml file does not reference a rFactor2 data directory.
    Cannot find: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor2/Userdata/config.ini

    I tried to swith from \ to /
    I tried every possible directory.
    Nothing. It just doesn't work.

    Hi,
    If I understand correctly, I can run Weather Server locally and Plugin in RF2 will communicate with it, right?

    I do not see weather applied in the game. I can see that weather server queries Underground Weather for my track, and gets weather stats, but I do not see them applied. There are two things suspicious:
    In Console, I have error in red:
    Unexpected Error: Value cannot be null
    Parameter Name: address

    Second, State column for plugin port always says STOPPED. It could be because I am alt tabbed out of game, but still suspicious.

    Thanks in advance!

    UPDATE: Got it working - not sure what that was allowing all possible exceptions in Firewall for both .exe's or running server elevated once, but error is gone and it rains in Hockenheim :DDD, wow, rf2 gets better and better. Thanks a lot for this mod.

    In the weather realtime plugin UI, the stop button is something to do with web access to the plugin. If you are running locally then it only needs to use port 12345 (default) and 666.

    Thank you for the hint - are you saying that running locally I don't need to even start webserver in the UI?

    Exactly. Even when running online you don't have to unless you make use of that feature (I never did)
