The "update" didn't seem to actually update, the '' file that's included doesn't contain the Latitude= or Longitude= values available to edit and the URLsite= value still uses #LocationCode# So that probably explains why no one but creator can get it functioning.

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

Yeah, thanks for catching that...

I updated the patch with verified files (not sure why the old files remained?!)

Let me know if you experience any issues with the Feb 2021 version.

can't seem to get the weather working

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

Check that you have entered the correct Latitude and Longitude values in '' file and refreshed.

tvor1's avatar

My values are correct. Is there a specific format I should be typing it in as? I'm just putting the coordinates directly after the LocationCode=

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

"LocationCode=" is NOT used... The coordinates are set by changing the Latitude= and Longitude= values in the '' file; that is where you add the values for your location.

sadly doesn't work( used 56.8119915,60.4772998 for Yekaterinburg

Working fine for me... check your values in

The skin is beautiful but the weather doesn't display :(

I consistently get an Invalid TimeStampFormat: %Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S error

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

What values did you set for Latitude and Longitude in "" file? What Language did you select?

ryanus420's avatar

You are meant to edit after the LocationCode= bit and put latitude and longitude yes? because i cannot seem to get it to work still. is there some step im missing?

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

No. LocationCode= is no longer used.

You need to right-click and select 'Edit Weather Variables', then change the Latitude and Longitude variables in the file that opens in your editor. Save the file and refresh the weather skin.

I haven't been able to get one single weather widget out there working, no matter what I've tried. Lat/Long did not seem to do the trick for me. Thanks anyways.

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

Really?! What values are you using and what is your "general" location; you don't need to be specific on your location.

I'm consistently getting an error with Invalid Time Stamp, any suggestions on what may be blocking or causing this error? This thread indicates I need to add a "FinishAction" somewhere, but I'm not familiar enough with Rainmeter to know where to add this. Thoughts?

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

There is no time data when the skin is first loaded or refreshed, so this error message will show 1 time on load and refreshes.

I will look at options to remove the message and post an updated package; it may take a few days.

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

The skin has all of the weather measures disabled until the webparser finishes. So any errors you are seeing are related to inaccurate info from the site. I have seen this happen from time to time, but it does not affect the skin functions.

Nothing I can suggest to prevent this.

This seems to have stopped working a few days back for me.

Posted an update which should keep it working until TWC changes things AGAIN!

How do I change to Celsius? Changing language doesn't work.

Also, anyway to remove "Right Now" text? That wasn't in my previous version.

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

Select Language English C° to view Celsius.

Changing the language with the right-click menu works fine, how did you try to do it?

"Right Now" is sent by TWC, you can change it in your version to anything by editing the [currentlyText] Text=...
