Submitted FSX "AS16 cannot control ambient weather parameters correctly" every single time I fly.


New member
Hi all,

This problem has caused me next level brain damage, depression and anxiety when trying to even finish a flight with AS16.

I have already tried every solution such as reinstalling activesky, checking whether the <as_connect> thing is enabled in dll.xml, disabling weather settings in FSUIPC, etc. I know it is not caused by another third party program because FSX also crashes when only it and AS16 are opened.

It did not show any signs of AS16 crashing in the event viewer since the one that DID show in event viewer is completely unrelated to AS16:

Faulting application name: fsx.exe, version: 10.0.62615.0, time stamp: 0x559f9a9a
Faulting module name: XAudio2_6.dll, version: 9.28.1886.0, time stamp: 0x4b6b0791
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0002cbef
Faulting process ID: 0x0x4870
Faulting application start time: 0x0x1D92F6141D00745
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\fsx.exe
Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\System32\XAudio2_6.dll
Report ID: ae68c01b-e39f-45c9-8cba-19ab8f6ff80d
Faulting package full name:
Faulting package-relative application ID:

This crash (Xaudio2_6.dll) can occur when AS16 is OFF.

If anyone can call me out for being an absolute idiot, I would very much appreciate it.
