On that web site, it says under "Main Cfg'n" .... "affiliate disabled - please note, Cfg'n server is being updated".
No download link.

I want to say that I'm trilled by the improvements you've made to the emulator, especially with the radars. Excellent work! I'm hooked on this emulator now!

Your account was disabled for one of many reasons, however it is enabled again.

I am glad to hear that you are happy with the progress to this point, although its taken awhile, but i am sure it was worth the wait! ;)

Okay, was able to download the new setup file, installed it, and got my new key.  Then I realized I had to do the "unregister 1-2-3-OK" command, now when I go to run the emulator, it requests a key.  I click GET MY KEY, and it says a key was already assigned to me.  I copy the key, then enter it on the next screen, and it says my key is not valid.  Did I unregister my key?

Your copying the key you see in CINE right? This is all on the same computer correct?

i released the current key that the config server has on record for you, try this again.

Do you plan on implementing additional segments in the near future? I think Airport and Travel Outlook would be useful segments. :yes: I know for sure all four maps on the travel outlook segment are available on weather.com (travel weather, foggy travel, windy travel, thunderstorm forecast). Not too sure where you could get the airport delays. TWC has the information on the website but there might be a more accurate place you could get it from. I hope I'm not trying to push you, I'm just giving suggestions.

The emulator is awesome! Wow. I do have one question. Does the emulator report fair conditions? It's been Sunny and Partly Cloudy all day, but not fair, even though both the Hirad and METAR had fair for my location at one point.

I don't think the emulator uses HiRAD. :no:
I've gone off on a journey to be a moderator at another forum, but this place will forever remain home for me~

It does indeed show fair. Oddly enough fair is used both day and night so you may get a sunny icon at night. The emulator uses NWS reporting location, no HiRad. Glad your enjoying the emulator! :)

    Martin & Brian, I remember back around Thanksgiving I had requested a key to participate in the emulator, but apparently, it was you Brian who had told me the fact that the emulator was being updated; So I was only able to enjoy a trial version off of Martin's affiliate ID. Not too long after that I ended up uninstalling the emulator thus now I will have to reinstall it, so will one of you please give me a login & password now that a there's a new release out on the emulator? Thank you.
