Zezo is showing wind changes at 0900 and 2100 hours.
This does not correspond with VOR changes at 0800 and 2000.
Please advise.

Sorry, just realized European daylight savings time switch.
Daylight savings time switched three weeks ago in the US.

Zezo is showing an anomaly in my chart for BroadwayMelody @ 2015-03-28 20:37:00 CET. I experienced the same difficulty with an earlier chart downloaded at 19:07 CET today. The charts seemed correct through 02:20 CET, but when I tried to enter that time and the corresponding bearing into the VR Schedule program, the time switched to "03:20". VR Schedule would not take any "02:XX" entries. Then when I analyzed the Zezo chart, I noted that it is completely skipping the "03:00-04:00" hour and the end of the 12 hour period is at "09:00 CET", instead of "08:00 CET", which it should be and always is.
I shut down everything and rebooted modem, router, server and the desktop running the game and achieved the same result. still still will not accept any "02:XX" hour course change (which are shown on the Zezo chart) and automatically changes them to "03:XX". Very strange! Please advise what I should do.

p.s. 02 pm = 03 pm tonight in CET, so it's impossible to have time point between them

Up to tonight the VVOR game weather changes has been at 07:00 (UTC) and 19:00 (UTC).

Central Europe is switching to Daylight Saving Time tonight. From tonight on VR has changed the VVOR weather update times to 06:00 (UTC) and 18:00 (UTC).

in France the clocks will be set one hour forward at 01:00 (UTC). The game programmers have to deal with this in one way or another and I guess that is why scheduling is not possible between 02:00 CET and 03:00 CET. Tonight that hour does not exist...

For the same reason Zezo charts is currently showing 09:00 CET as the Weather Change time. I hope it will be correct when the new weather is loaded one hour before...

So, if I understand this correctly, the net effect of the time zone changes are that, starting as of 03:00 CEST (01:59:59 CET; 01:00 UTC) tonight, the weather update times continue to be at 08:00 (CEST) and 20:00 (CEST) as before, which times are now the equivalent of 06:00 (UTC) and 18:00 (UTC).

I think that's right; let us know if not.

VVOR game scheduler function is still prohibiting "02:XX" entries. That restriction needs to be removed, as it related only to the "missing" hour between 02:00 and 03:00 yesterday.

Hello Cvetan,

as BroadwayMelody mentioned above, the wind changes now occur at 08:00/20:00 CEST. In your charts they are still marked with 08:00/20:00 CET (at least in my Google Chrome browser). Not really a big problem as I now know when to set my alarm - but perhaps can be fixed easily.

Kind regards,
