HTML Intellistar 2 Simulator
« on: August 22, 2019, 07:35:42 PM »
I've been working on this simulator for over a year now. I've posted it in a few places before but I'll announce it here for more people to enjoy. I've done my best to accurately recreate the Intellistar 2 HD/XD in HTML/CSS/JS.
This simulator uses modern JS and CSS properties that aren't fully supported in some browsers. I currently recommend Chrome or Edge Dev since there is still one issue with Firefox.


Visit to set your settings. Type in a city name then click on one of the suggestions.
You can pick from a few backgrounds or use a link to your own, and there are many music tracks you can pick from.
A few narration lines from Allen Jackson are available, which were taken from the publicly available WUWA app.
This simulator is not open source and it's only available through my website.

Any suggestions or feedback is appreciated!

I gotta say, I'm kind of impressed, looks pretty good...and I'm using Firefox.
