Any Icons Available?
« on: November 01, 2009, 10:44:06 AM »
I am working on a TWC style "Current Conditions" screen that updates every 10 minutes using the data from my weather station. As you can see it is missing the current condition icon that would show the sun, clouds, etc... Is there a set available that I could use?

It would look better if you actually used the 4000 fonts imo.

But here are the icons: http://twcclassics.com/images/icons-version-2.html

This screen is being generated with the weather station software. I agree on the fonts, but I currently do not have a set either. Are they standard TrueType fonts? If not are they available also?

The 4000 fonts are installed to your computer with the 4000 Emulator. ;)

Look in the C:\WINDOWS\Fonts Directory

Ehh... not VWS. I am using Weather Display Software http://www.weather-display.com/index.php It is a very powerful software that allows you to do many things. They have a forum also http://www.weather-watch.com/smf/index.php

This is an option that allows you to make custom screens. Just pick the background and then add the info you want. It will then update each reload like the banner in my sig. You can make up to 10 screens and then animate them together. That way you can have it scroll through the different screens like the local on the 8"s (except the radar)
