New Additions for March Release
« on: February 24, 2009, 09:24:17 AM »
a new feature ive added into the emulator is the ability to export the data downloaded into the emulator, im using this function to export data from the emulator to my star unit for uptake. i figure that if anyone is also making an emulator or something, and you dont know how to code that function of your emulator, just tap into these files, and you will have the the current conditions, the regional observation conditions, 36hr forecast, and extended forecast.  if you can tap into the files that the emulator uses while its running, your in good shape.

here is an example dump to showcase this function:
