Was wondering if you could post a blank title screen, so we can customize it to say what we want it to say?

Emulator Videos / IntelliStar v1 Emulation
« Last post by jaydec02 on Yesterday at 05:39:16 PM »
Hey all. I've been working on an IntelliStar V1 emulation, and I want to get some feedback on it and to see what improvements I can make to it. I based it off a PowerPoint emulation I got online, but I made a lot of modifications and improvements to it!

IntelliStar v1: Myrtle Beach, SC (Tropical Storm Bertha)

Local Forecast / Re: Classic LF Questions
« Last post by Dylan on Yesterday at 09:20:51 AM »
I’m not exactly sure when the narration for the extended forecast began on the XL. But, you would occasionally hear the generic “your extended forecast” even after it appeared. The extended forecast was only narrated when there was sufficient time, based on flavor type and the actual forecast of the next three days and the length of the narration required.
This is off-topic, and may not fall under the classic category, but does anybody reading this (whether it'd be you, Tyler, or somebody else) have an Atlanta and/or Pittsburgh IntelliStar :08/:38 LF from March 20 through late June 2008?  Those 2 areas had a beta flavor where the traffic products were shown right after the "Current Conditions" segments, and the "Getaway Forecast" was shown at the end of the LF after "The Week Ahead" product, but I've never seen that before, so I was hoping maybe you had an LF recorded that you never posted before (at least to my knowledge), or somebody else from one of those 2 areas reading this,

Sorry for the double-posting, but I have to ask, was this video https://twcclassics.com/watch.php?file=hangin-out edited, or was there a glitch? I can't imagine why it said "your extended forecast." instead of "Expect a chance of rain Tuesday through Thursday, with temperatures in the 60s, on Tuesday.", with and without 2 seconds added.

I don't think that kind of narration was around back then.
Well this video from 5 months later; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsmTkj9o5nI, has the "Expect a chance of rain Tuesday through Thursday" narration in it, but they should have had all narrations for all possibilities from the day narration on the XL debuted. Now, another question, what was going on in this video? https://twcclassics.com/watch.php?file=st-tropez-00 Was this somehow related to the then-newly added narration back then?

I watched Nickelodeon a lot when I was a kid, back in the late 80s and early 90s. Lots of memorable shows back then. One thing they did back then that drove me crazy was when they'd promote a show and not tell you what time it aired. For example, "watch Lassie, every day on Nickelodeon!" Watch it WHEN!?

Help and Support / Doppler Radar is not working
« Last post by roysouvik on May 27, 2020, 10:39:04 PM »
The doppler radar on my emulator isn't working - all it displays is a blank blue screen.
Is there any way that this can be fixed?

Sorry for the late reply to everyone, anyway here is the zip file, simply replace the files in the folders with the corresponding ones in the directory folders.  Be sure to back up the originals if you decide to get back to the original look.  The only section I did not do is the Outdoor Activity, since I really do not use it. Use the customize theme in wx-cine for the blue, and desert theme for the red (bad weather theme), note the red backgrounds are only for certain screens in the local forecast that are changeable within theme selection.
