That's cool to hear! I've even noticed that from your latest stream during Hurricane Maria. Just out of curiosity, does the severe weather crawl kind of uses the same source code like what the WeatherSTAR 4000 v3 simulator uses?

I was not apart of the design process of the 4000 simulator, so I can't speak for the process performed on that end.. I originate the bulletin crawls from the NWS EMWIN (Emergency Manager's Weather Information Network) data feed. As the messages come in, I process them so they may be retrieved by the Emulator. It is in theory that the Emulator will pick up these messages within a minute of their dispatch, and will be displayed on the crawl line.

Looks great Brian! :thumbsup:

Question about the crawl: does it still require a separate program, or is it built into the emulator?

Thank you! Back in pilot testing in 2008, this was a separate program, this is now integrated into the emulator.

Hey folks! Update since the last time I posted, I have been able to bring the Bulletin Crawl into full operation inside the Emulator. The principle of how it works is extremely basic:

On the server end, when a message is received from the NWS, we update a file specific to the WFO of your local office who issued the message.

On the client end, every minute, the Emulator will poll the server to check the latest message from your WFO. At that point, if the file is new, the Emulator will challenge that message with your Zone or County code. If your Zone or County is found to be inside this message, it will present the emulator with this text, and ONLY the text pertaining to your Zone or County. Once this has been received by the Emulator, it will then scroll across the bottom of the screen for a pre-determined length of time. (At this moment, it is set for 10 minutes but I may change this to 15.)

Currently, I am testing this to make sure it works properly. Through testing, I have fixed a few bugs along the way, but this system appears to be working.

At the present moment, I am hosting a YouTube Live running the Emulator over Puerto Rico, and if there is a Bulletin issued, you will see it crawl across the bottom of the screen. Tune in at http://youtube.com/cc17926 ..
Looks great Brian! :thumbsup:

Those Icons Are Property Of TWC. You Can't Get Your Hands On Them. Sorry.

There are plenty of fan-made renditions around, and while they aren't animated, they'll work just fine.
