    Is it possible to use a non US location for weather

    Hello All, I'm told that RoadRunner is the best FE available so I've been testing it out, but I cannot for the life of me get it to display weather for my location, Melbourne, Australia

    I've read through the FAQ's and didn't find anything

    Australian Weather

    I put EXACTLY what you type above "Melbourne, Australia" for CITYWEATHER in the rr.ini, (Or in the OSK for skins that support press and hold to change the weather) and got the following:



    I also tried it for just "Melbourne" and it also worked.

    For me in Canada, the equivalent location (city, province) would be Calgary, Alberta. However I have to put in Calgary, Canada and then it works. Maybe that'll help you somehow?

    Non-US locations are always in the format: City, COUNTRY. US locations are in the format: City, State
