My own emulator
« on: August 12, 2011, 09:47:52 PM »
I never got around to posting these vids on this forum, but here they are, in ascending order:

First version of my emulator

Birthday Present For socool775- Personalized TWC Forecast For Lansing, MI


This was created exclusively as a present for socool775/Aaron's 18th birthday (just testing it out at the time.)

Second version

ImBoredIIDeath's TWC Emulator- Blowing Sand in LA :P


For this update, I added more slides, as well as some narrations for the CC, radar, text-based and the 3-day forecast.

Current version of my emulator

ImBoredIIDeath's TWC Emulator- Blowing Dust in Spokane :P


For this update, I discontinued the LDL, changed the background to a blue-faded-to-black color background, added a spot for sponsorships, and moved the weather bulletin still to the very beginning, similar to the IntelliStar.

What do you guys think? I might make more emulator vids soon   :)

ImBoredIIDeath/TWCJim's TWC Emulator- Is It Hell or Is It Yuma?


For this update, I brought back the LDL, but restarted from scratch. Also, I updated all the backgrounds and added an ad crawl at the beginning. What do you think?

Good stuff Jim. I think your emulator could go a really long way. Which font(s) did you use for the text? I can't really tell.

ImBoredIIDeath/TWCJim's TWC Emulator: Temporarily Unavailable


For this one, I simply typed in the words "Temporarily Unavailable" on all of the stills on my emulator just for fun, and because I was lazy :P

Can I give you some corrective criticism? Have an image of an actual warning crawl next to your emulation. Then, you can better see the font size. Not bashing you, I had the same problem way back when ;). Also, here is the actual warning crawl. Be sure to give credit to weatherstooge.

Currently, the temperature is... 199 degrees!


Only one screen in this one, which features a never-before-heard narration of 199 degrees!

Just screwing around with the IntelliSTAR narrations, lol  :P
