Boyercam's emulations
« on: January 16, 2014, 01:07:52 PM »
Hello everyone and welcome to my little corner on this forum, where you can see my emulations.

Seeing as I am based in the UK, most of my emulations will use local places and with each emulation there will be a brief description...

.... so, umm... I suppose I should start.

Ok here is my first emulation:
Youtube Link


System Emulated: IntelliStar 2 Local
Location: Manchester, UK
Music Used: The Weather Channel Local On The 8's Version 1 Fall
Narration Used ('Vocal Local'):  :no: No
Created With: PowerPoint (Basic Emulation)
Background:
The IntelliStar System Covering Manchester unexpectedly broke down, in order to keep up with TWC's changes a IntelliStar 2 system was shipped in from America to cover this area. A software update for UK configurations had not yet been installed and so some features were unavailable
Technical Background:
This emulation took about 2 hours to make, even at it's basic level, some features are different such as Font and Icons as I don't have them available. This emulation was difficult to create with PowerPoint as some features were impossible to recreate, also It appeared I couldn't spell Temporarily, so ignore that

Alternative Weatherscan (Intellistar) reboot concept idea:
Youtube Link


System Emulated: IntelliStar Weatherscan
Location: Manchester, UK
Music Used: Track 28
Narration Used ('Vocal Local'):  :no: No
Created With: PowerPoint (Basic Emulation)
Background:
No Background as such, just a proof of concept.
Technical Background:
It's a fairly basic creation, just ignore the hopeless weatherscan page at the end :blushing:

Weatherscan (Intellistar) concept idea:
! Private video


System Emulated: IntelliStar Weatherscan
Location: Manchester, UK
Music Used: Weatherscan Tracks
Narration Used ('Vocal Local'):  :no: No
Created With: PowerPoint (Basic Emulation)
Background:
No Background as such, just a proof of concept.
Technical Background:
It's a fairly basic creation, utilizing some new graphical capabilities and TWC's Weather All The Time (Or "It's Amazing out there") graphical icons. Apologies for the poor frame rate and the fact that the system is "Back to the future"

I know this is technically not a Emulation but I thought I would share it with you guys.
It's a mock promo for Accuweather (*shivers*) which actually didn't turn out too bad.

I was bored so created it for 'something to do'. Accuweather can have it if they pay for the un-watermarked stock footage/
