TWCWyatt's Work
« on: June 01, 2019, 08:29:37 PM »
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.

Yeah! They look almost like the real thing.

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.

Nice job on the Weatherscan IntelliStar v1. It looks so real! I too have also always preferred the original v1 Weatherscan IntelliStar screen layout since it was less cluttered. I've also been dreaming for a Weatherscan IntelliStar v1 emulator/simulator for years since our local cable system never carried Weatherscan in my area and also ever since when I saw Intelliguy's Weatherscan videos from Philadelphia a few years ago on YouTube. Keep up the good work!

Whoa, never thought I'd see you pop up here again. I've always favored this style since I saw the same videos a few years back. Luckily, with new HQ footage (very slowly) creeping in, I was able to recreate the graphics with certainty. Thanks for your feedback!

You should seriously consider working on a Weatherscan Emulator because I would seriously download it for personal use. This is freaking amazing! Takes me back to my childhood traveling years to the northeast.
