Title: WeatherStar XL Graphics for WeatherScan Emulator!
Post by: zonexero on May 15, 2020, 01:37:52 PM
Not sure if anyone is interested.  I was able to port over many of the WeatherStar XL graphics package backgrounds for use with the WeatherScan emulator here on the site. I find the backgrounds with the pictures that come default make it difficult to read the screen at times, so decided to give this a try.  I started with the /custom folder and worked my way through the rest of the png/jpg files.  I also made some alternate "storm mode" with a red background for the 'your local forecast portion" (which I store in the desert theme folder).  Excuse these pictures, for some reason my screen capture is not working on the machine that runs the emulator software. If anyone would like the background files let me know, be happy to share.

Sorry for the late reply to everyone, anyway here is the zip file, simply replace the files in the folders with the corresponding ones in the directory folders.  Be sure to back up the originals if you decide to get back to the original look.  The only section I did not do is the Outdoor Activity, since I really do not use it. Use the customize theme in wx-cine for the blue, and desert theme for the red (bad weather theme), note the red backgrounds are only for certain screens in the local forecast that are changeable within theme selection.

Was wondering if you could post a blank title screen, so we can customize it to say what we want it to say?

Here is the blank page, if you want a header it is aerial font that was used.

Since we just finally had a weather bulletin recently, I realized there was a slide that was off with the actual text on the screen, that being the one I have attached below should fix the problem.  Also if anyone wants some blank slides the replace certain ones that may not match up with their area just let me know.

Here are a couple updated slide backgrounds, realizing not everyone lives in the same area as I do, this so far includes the airport conditions graphic and the marine update graphic (bridge removed from slide).
