We have a nice update that is going to be released sometime soon! Here are a few of the changes made:

  • Extended Radar Loops
  • Improved "No Data" slide
  • User Logo now appears on "No Data" slide
  • Support for the Weather Warning and Alert software
  • Local Bulletin improved
  • Easy method to close the emulator
  • Improved clock performance
  • Tweaks and Improvments to the Web Config
  • Improved Up Next Slides also to include user logo
  • Faster start times
  • and more

Of course all changes are not final and other changes may show up. What would you like to see changed? Please post your comments and suggestions here! User feedback will help Brian make the changes you want to see. Altough not all of them can be done, they will be considered! :yes:

Would it be OK to configure this emulator like the WeatherStar 4000 Emulator? :unsure:
I've gone off on a journey to be a moderator at another forum, but this place will forever remain home for me~

Im afraid that wont happen but if you dont mind me asking why would you want that? I think its a good idea to have the web based config so you dont have to recreate your settings each time.

I like the web config much better. I seem to have to regularly format my hard drive, so having the config on the web saves me the trouble of having to reconfigure every time I format.

OK. I see now, because you need online configs for the fact that you need a STAR ID to operate the emulator. :yes:

Err yea. I think you get what im saying :dunno: Its another little way to have some control over users.

Also I should mention Brian is working on a way to have keys generated in the online config so it will be much easier.

Did Brian ever get to tackle the issue of not being able to move it/not being able to put it on a second monitor?
