    File format PM weather radar (pmwx.dat)

    I'm in the process to find a way to implement ASN weather radar functionality to PM. Does someone has information regarding the file format of the pmwx.dat (image size, depth, ....). Help would be very appreciated.

    You might download SA WRX ( see the topic a bit lower in this forum ) and see how it implements weather into the PM ND.
    It sents a bitmap to it as far as I know.

    Thanks, I'm using SA_WRX for many years already. The idea is to migrate to ASN wheather radar to streamline the tools.

    Re: File format PM weather radar (pmwx.dat)

    Pete Dowson provided a lot of info to Enrico on this well over a year ago. I have asked Enrico on several occasions when he's going to implement it but all I get is "soon".

    Maybe others might care to write to PM and ask when it's going to be done. I'm getting fed up with the lack of response from Enrico.

    Enrico does not answer any more on support requests.
    Only on registration emails as he is traveling .

    Katy is still there but for Enrico is the programmer.

    That sounds like PM is not accepting any support questions. How can that be acceptable when we've paid good money for an expensive product? First the forum was closed, then Tickets don't get responded to and now no email support. That's pretty awful if I'm honest.

    Well Guys,

    Like many other B737 cockpit builders you should consider to move to ProSim737. It is extremely well supported with an active forum and it supports natively weather radar, even the advanced ASN.

    I moved over years ago and never looked back.

    Just my €00.2

    Best regards,

    --pim

    Pim,

    I tried it but with my setup at home (no cockpit) I find PM suits me better. Believe me if ProSim737 was fine with my system I'd switch.

    PM is okay for me but I'd really like the ASN Wx radar and can't understand why Enrico can't find the time to implement it.
