Local Forecast / Tony Davilio - Psyche
« Last post by Mike M on April 07, 2020, 11:03:50 AM »
Hey guys, does anyone remember where that song Psyche by Tony Davilio (played on TWC on Sept 2009) was available at? I know someone sent me a link a long time ago but I've lost it. I think it was also known by the name "Twister?" Please and thank you!

Link to song for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7diQj9GDJw

I'm inhaling some extremely ignorant, self-centered anecdotal content in this thread :rolleyes:
Agreed, very much so....I guess we should just go on with life as normally so the virus can spread much more rapidly since we now know it can be simply by just breathing and talking near someone whoís infected or someone who is asymptomatic showing zero signs of symptoms yet still spreading the virus. If we had of been proactive in doing these measures back in February, if not late January we would likely be on the cusp of recovery from this virus. Itís not like this magically popped up in the US a month ago and nowhere else. We saw and heard the grim developments that were occurring in China, Spain, Italy, etc. weeks/months ago we collectively as a country should have been proactive and preparing then, not a few weeks ago as crap hit the fan. End rant.  Edit: Letís try to be sympathetic to people in other countries around the world who are also suffering economically, itís not just Americans who are suffering from this. We all live on this planet and as a result we all are greatly and personally affected by this global pandemic.
Still, I just want normal life to come back. The normal function of society. I agree that it didn't just pop into the United States a month ago, but it sure did seem sudden, when it began to affect the normal riggers of life. Social distancing, staying at home, except for the essentials. Cancelling everything and shutting down the country. I hate every bit of it!

Finally, a NEW IntelliSTAR Emulator (created by me) HAS BEEN RELEASED! :D

Presenting- The "IntelliSTAR Emulator: SQUEAK-X1"!

(This new emulator has both a Local and a National forecasts.)

Features (Local Forecast):
- Initially all products used on the IntelliSTAR (2004-2013), including the Record Temperatures, Heat Safety Tips, Climate Data, and the Traffic screens
- New products: Airport Delays (United States only), Ski Reports
- A "Fly In" animation for some slides to replicate the IntelliSTAR (2004-2007)
- There are two Heat Safety Tips slides for indoors and outdoors, and two Traffic Report slides for people who want to have more than two traffic incidents/constructions impacting their area
- All slides will last for EXACTLY 10 seconds (except for the Radar products, the Regional and Local Radar slides last for 16 seconds each, and the Radar Satellite slide last for 8 seconds)

Features (National Forecast):
- You can tell it's a three minute flavour by realizing there are 18 slides in total, all slides lasting for 10 seconds
- The DayPart Forecast, Severe Weather Warnings, Precipitation Forecast, and Thunderstorm Forecast screens are completely remade from the IntelliSTAR (2005-2011 / Emergency Feed)
- The 3 Day Forecast for 50 states' capitals, with help from (https://home-school.lovetoknow.com/50_States_and_Capitals_in_Alphabetical_Order), has been included in this presentation, known as "Fifty Capitals Forecast". There is no plan to recreate the regional forecast or the Radar Satellite

Also, this package has the default background (you can change the background as many times as you want, since I made a 50% transparent table on products to prevent ruining the picture), a LDL (this was put in the bottom of the local forecast on all slides by default as a 11.02 x 1.27, but it's up to you to finish it because I didn't want to ruin the picture), and the Station ID and Local Forecast intro (you may notice they are the exact videos in my above post in 640x480 resolution). The font in this emulator is Hit The Road. If you don't have Hit The Road, then download it, it's in the package as well. You do not have to use this font if you do not want to, but using this font is highly recommended for best experience (for some computers...).

There's a password for the SQUEAK-X1 as well. The local and national forecast passwords are EXACTLY the plain d@mn same: imback1

Download link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/re3of95v5j4g458/SQUEAK-X1.zip/file

Here's a video! (forecast starts @ 0:28): <a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/CyLuqtmarSo" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/CyLuqtmarSo</a>

Stay tuned for SQUEAK-X1 videos soon! :D

This IntelliSTAR/Local Forecast Video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHF-3tTeZwQ) has a picture of Bensalem's (Bucks County's) WeatherScan at the very last second of the video, for a split second. Luckily I managed to capture that, and it's here

My university along with the rest of the PASSHE universities got shut down and moved to online only classes for the rest of the semester. While I might not like online classes, I support the decision since the health of the students/teachers/operations staff and the community in general are more important at this time.

I honestly doubt anyone even visits this site anymore, but here goes...

I was planning on forking & fixing up the Weatherscan HTML5 emulator, as well as editing the appearance to look more like the V1 Intellistar version instead of the V2 Intellistar version (I never really liked the LDL features everywhere-- I felt they crowded up the screen too much). However, I never really got to it (blame my procrastination & checking social media every 5 minutes for that).

These are mockups for said planned fixup. They are presented in the original 720x480 resolution used for the Intellistar. Some elements may appear stretched.

Weatherscan Intellistar V1 Current Conditions (normal screen):


Weatherscan Intellistar V1 Current Conditions (severe weather mode):


Made in Affinity Photo.
I made the weather bulletin in the style of the Weatherscan Intellistar V1, mainly because I was bored but also because I wanted to see what it would look like for my area.

The gradient's weird, but I don't know how TWC made theirs to stand out so well, so at least I can say I tried.


...and the extended forecast. Made when I was reminded of Jaden wanting something like this but for the Weatherscan Intellistar V2. Data accurate as of the timestamp.



Wyatt, I love your work! :D
