Weatherscan Emulator (Download link)
« on: September 08, 2010, 05:57:45 PM »
Hi, this may sound crazy but I am making a Weatherscan XL v1 emulator. Yes I am aware of Brians weatherscan v2 emulator right here at the forums, which of course was my very inspiration to make one, but mine will probably look shameful next to his. I desperately need the help of TWC experts like you guys. I need graphics (animated icons, maps) info about the XL (names of the fonts used, how LDL works). I am calling upon the kind help of you guys! Can anybody help me?  :dunno:

BTW I have my own forums here: http://www.weatherstar.forumotion.com

And my apologies admin if this is not the right place for this..

EDIT: I have most of what I need now

Looks like a great forum. I just signed up. I hope it becomes more active! I'd love to see a public WeatherSTAR emulator based in something other than PowerPoint. B)

Republic of Okean - World's most livable country.

That's all I got. Oh! Ich kann Deutsch!

Hey all,  :thumbsup:

Don't know if anyone is still interested in this topic but the official public beta is available here: http://www.4shared.com/file/K-c_GZCX/Weatherscan_XL__install_.html

You will need a key for this version, so PM me if you would like to use it, and I will send you a key.

Also remember, for future updates and support, be sure to sign up at my forums at http://weatherstar.forumotion.com

Hey Zach, no worries. I have made the backgrounds editable so anyone can place there own custom themes. If you send them I can try to implement them for the next release.  :thumbsup:
