Well since I haven't been making emulators since about July, I made this. This is a WeatherStar 3000 emulator without a LDL. I will fix that later. And also notice the radar segment. The real 3000's had one of these. The cable providor would plug the unit into a telephone line, and it would download a radar image from the NWS (If I am correct). Anyways, enjoy! :smoke2:

My most recent, a WeatherStar 3000 with a emulated LDL. I also changed how the radar comes in. And, I am sorry for the "roundish" fonts... the file format caused that (WMV). Anyways, comments and suggestions appreciated :)

Here's my latest. I know that the text on the LDL is not aligned properly. I will fix it in the next emulation of the Junior B)

Do you remember where you got the animated icons or did you make them?

Nice job, saw it a half an hour ago. Looks very retro.
