Setting Up The Configuration
« on: October 30, 2008, 04:45:16 PM »
After you have given me the username/star id and password you would like to use for the emulator and I (or Brian) have confirmed your account has been set up, please follow these simple steps.

1. Go to http://copper.yi.org:21863
2. Under Restricted access click WeatherScan Configurator
3. You should see a login screen.
4. Enter the login information you gave me
5. Now you should see a panel on the left. Click Current Conditions and select your info there.
6. Continue to click on the links in the side pannel and complete your setup. Its all self explanatory.
7. When you have finished go to "Review Cfg'n "
8. Scroll to the bottom of the text.
9. If you entered everything correctly you should see a link saying Build Configuration. Click that link and your configuration is complete!

Now that you have set up your account, it is important to tell the emulator your username. To do this click the "Set Affiliate ID" shortcut on your desktop and enter your username there. Hit save and exit. REMEMBER: Vista users must right click the icon and "Run as admin" for the program to work right. The emulator itself must also be started this way

Important Update
If you do not live in an area near the coast or an area that supports traffic, YOU MUST enter a valid area for the coastal forecast and traffic before you can build your config. You can then use the "Package Selection" option in the configuration to opt out of those sections of the emulator.

Are we supposed to PM one of you guys with the username and password? I don't want to send any PMs if it would be a bother that way. Thanks.

Okay, I'm having a few problems.

First, when I scroll to the bottom of the Review Cfg'n page, there is no link.
Also, when I enter the STAR ID on the emulator, it says my star id does not exist.





There should be a like button on this forum, just like Facebook.

A ) this is not the thread to address these problems.
B ) you must configure all elements to build the valid configuration used by the emulator
C ) the star id will not exist until you build a valid configuration.
