Intermediate Update - Aug 24 2018
« on: August 24, 2018, 04:01:17 PM »
Due to changes on the NWS data website, there have been format inconsistencies with the Extended Forecast product (SFT) across multiple states when downloaded (Hawaii, and Georgia to name a few). As I have been processing the NWS EMWIN data internally for alerts and other messages, I have decided to move the processing of this product in-house. To accommodate this, a change needed to be made in CINE, and in the emulator application.

If the Extended forecast has been spotty, or not functioning properly in the past, please select your city in the configuration, and build your settings together.

Additionally, this change will correct the intermittent temperature display to show erroneous characters (such as a / or improperly displayed negative numbers).

To utilize this intermediate update, download the binary from CINE, place in C:\WSXL, and run this executable directly.

Do I get rid of the old binary?
