Fsuipc.dll v2.00 has been released for fltsim 2000 and cfs2. This should allow easy programming for the game and maybe new weather and features can be added. There is an weather program in the zip so maybe you can have snow in the pacific You can download it from Flightsim.com

It does work but you have to do a clean re-install of the game.

engine fire:

Why?
I,ve just put the .dll in the modules folder, and till know runs fine.
Nice add-on btw! Thanks for the tip. Definetly worth trying. See if I can generate some random tropical thunderstorms!
Dynamic wheather!

I guess it can cause trouble.

Regards
Ryan

What does this .dll do exactly do? Do I have to be a programmer to use it? (which I'm certainly not )

No you don't have to be a programmer thankfully.
The program gives you control over certain parameters in CFS2 previously not possible.
Like wind, turbulence (makes me airsick!), visibility, icing and more. It can randomly generate cirrus clouds at high altitude and thunderstorms!

The downside:
When CFS2 cannot find the .dll you will have to reboot....
This happend to me twice. So I don't know if this otherwise excellent utility will stay in my game.
Engine fire is right: it can mess things up. So use at your own risk.

I have been using the .dll for a few days and I have had no more problems. I think it must have been my installation first time. I recommend I wonder if u can use fs2000 weather and nav programs with this .dll? I will invstigate.
