Emulator Release - April 2012
« on: April 17, 2012, 07:19:13 PM »
This is quick and dirty fix release. To update the emulator, follow these steps.
-Login to CINE: http://copper.yi.org:21863
-Go to downloads and keys
-If you do not have the emulator installed on your computer (or now wish to use a new computer), install the main emulator release.
-Download the "April 2012 Release" archive
-Extract the .EXE files to C:\wsxl and extract the remainder images to C:\wsxl\main
-Run the SetAffiliate program to set your ID. (This is required or else the emulator will crash on start!)
-Run the emulator itself. (Key dialog will appear to 'Get a Key' if this is a new install)

This is a quick maintenance release to correct the source that the Radar maps are retrieved from. I did not have the opportunity to verify, but I believe that Traffic is eternally broke as the traffic provider (Yahoo!) does not relay traffic details anymore. All other products should be working.

Please advise if you are having any issues. Also post your ID you are working with if you need support!!

Please confirm your configuration is correct. Eliminate all other packages except for Local Forecast and try again. Don't forget to build your configuration! Also has this computer worked with the emulator before?

Yes I have used this computer for the emulator in the past.. I turned off all packages as you suggested and still nothing.. I can see the CCs downloading because the LDL will pop up but nothing else.. I also noticed in my configuration for the main CC site, the two images where the radar is supposed to be are non-existent and when I look in my radar folder, no new files were popping up

I needed to correct a few things in the package that is available on the CINE portal. Please re-download the package and follow the instructions noted above.

Zach: I had to "Build Now!" after reviewing your settings changes to push them to become active. I am able to confirm this is working for you. All products show up except for your Extended Forecast.

Advise if there are any further troubles

If you have messaged me with a request for an account, I will try to get through a lot of the backlog this weekend. :)

Hey Brian -- just thought Id let you know I got everything working now  :) As it turns out, the feb2011.zip file was still in my browser's cache and that must have been why I couldnt get the emulator to work right :wall:

Also, I cannot seem to get the Boat and Beach and Aviation segments to work :no: I remember those grabbed images from weather.com and if they were from the XOAP server (which now 404s), be sure to change the URL from xoap.weather.com to fcgi.weather.com and see if that helps.. the directories of the images do not need changing, just the domain that they map to :yes:

Zach, thanks for the insight. I will look into the paths the next time I am infront of the source. This updating the URLs should be a quick task.

I've noticed that the airports list in both the Airport segment and in the local obs is incomplete, is there any possible way that could be fixed? There are a number of ASOS stations in my area alone that aren't included in the web config, as well as on the Extended Forecast.
