Thank you for the update! Anyway, I can't find a way to find the location that I want when i click on "TWS" on the top right. I think it should be a link, but I can't find it.

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

Open '@ Resources\' and enter your Latitude and Longitude values, save that file and refresh the skin.

Razer40's avatar

I've already did it and it works, but I'm speaking about the "TWC" (probably I've wrote it wrong) on the top: when I click it, it give me the capital weather, and not that of my province.

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

That link location is automatically generated by the website based on your internet service provider location, not your location. You will need to enter your location in the website search.

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

I may change that action in a future update so it is the same as your latitude/longitude settings, but for now TWC decides where they think you are...

Razer40's avatar

No problem, for now it costs me anything to click on my city. Thank you for your time and work :)

How to write you the private message?

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

Mouse over the "3 dots icon" next to the "bell icon" in the top bar, and click on "Notes".

You should be able to send a "New Note" PM from there.

The compass the direction of wind does not work! Сheck, please...

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

You are right! :(

The skin does a conversion in the [mCardinal] section and I used the already converted value. So change either the measure [MeasureW2] or the meter [meterValue2].

Edit the file and change the [MeasureW2] section to this:

;Wind Direction Degrees








Edit the file and change the [meterValue2] section to this:







Change either, but not both. The info from the 'compass' [meterValue2] is formatted by TWC, while the 'degrees' [measureW2] is formatted by the skin. They are slightly different, but you can use either method.

I will post an updated package in the near future...

IOrgens's avatar

OK! Thank you for fast fix! :)

Translation of the file of does not work.

If in the illustroWeather.ini file Text= "XXXXXX" to replace with Text=#XXXXXX# everything works


Eclectic-Tech's avatar

Hmm, I'll look into that. Thanks

Razer40's avatar

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

Razer40's avatar

Yes, i'm using it until now. I just wanted to change its with this. Anyway, don't worry, thanks for the effort :)

Jok3rsGr1n's avatar

i cant get this to work at all

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

Not updated yet... it will be a while before I have time to work on it.

SeanMalahy's avatar killed their API. You'll need to re-write this to use a different site, like Yahoo, or something.

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

I have an update almost ready... in another day or so will be posting it.

Looks like the api is RIP.
