    you wont see any garbage, if the setting is un altered in RR.ini
    AND its NOT in skin.ini or general.ini of the loadeded

    the file is being written wrong, you can also be doing it
    ONLY USE a GOOD TEXT EDITOR

    REMEMBER UNICODE!

    you dont neeed to go any father than, looking at your files... when the symbol is bad

    also, RRCONFIG, may be getting the file encoding wrong...
    make sure your using the newest RR with the newest RRConfig...
    all you have to do is look at ur files! and you will know

    since i use rrconfig all the time, i dont suspect it

    but it might be writing it WRONG in skin.ini!!!
    thats why you have to lOOOK!!!!

    Are you saying the character is stored in each of those files? I don't understand your comment.

    To be clear, I did not edit any files when I repro'd this error. It has to be something in RRConfig causing the problem - from what I can see. To re-cap:

    1. If I run the DFX 5.1.2 installer, and then check weather, the degree symbol appears correctly.
    2. If I then quite RR, open RRConfig and modify at least some things (I have not had time to determine if it's a question of modding any settings or just some particular settings in RR Config), when RR Config is closed and RR is re-started, the weather degree symbol is corrupted (i.e. get garbage display)
    3. If I don't ever run RR Config after running the DFX 5.1.2 installer, then it's fine and all is well (i.e. degree symbol appears as desired)

    That is what I suspect. I am using the RR Config that came with the January 2013 RR installer. I also saw this problem with the December 2012 install package.


    all you have to do is look at ur files! and you will know
    Not if I don't know which file or what I'm looking for.

    I don't mind helping debug, but you need to provide some guidance on what to look for and where to look.


    since i use rrconfig all the time, i dont suspect it

    but it might be writing it WRONG in skin.ini!!!

    LIke I said above - please indicate where to look and what to look for. I'm glad to help out, but off the top-of-my-head I don't know where the degree symbol is pulled from.

    I recall that when I've looked at some of the files previously (before I posted on the forum about this), they all seemed to have the correct symbol. I tried to troubleshoot this before posting, thinking the same thing that there was some file getting corrupted. But now I know at least one pattern of behavior that will re-produce the problem, and I can't find the garbage text anywhere in any file (so far).

    If you think the characters are being written incorrectly to an ini file, give me a list of files to check (If you can determine that). Where could RR pull the text from in order to print it on the weather screens?

    i mentioned this a few times

    its pulled from rr.ini
    but may be overrided from skin.ini and or general.ini

    use carwings only right now

    in the carwings folder there is skin.ini and general.ini
    check them remove any weather references!

    then only rr.ini is in play

    in rr.ini:

    [Weather]
    WeatherDayNameLength=3
    WeatherUnits=USA
    WeatherDegrees=

    also keep debugging on, so you can review the debug.txt file

    Quick fix as much as I tested so far only a handfull of times but so far it is working.

    In the DFX skin.ini the line weatherdegrees= I changed to [weatherdegrees=] use the brackets (or remove the whole line if you want)
    I tried leaving it blank like weatherdegrees= but that did not work for me.

    Then I had to manually edit the rr.ini with notepad, the line WeatherDegrees= (it looked like it was correct but I put it in there again) and did the alt 0176 to get the symbol

    If I used RRCONFIG to change the symbol it would not work. I changed it, saved it, closed RRCONFIG reopened RRCONFIG and it was something different. I tried that a few times. Also I did not open RR during this process.

    See if this helps

    here is the FIXED DFX skin file Weather_Icon_Choices.skin

    i only changed one line:

    Code:
    B,201,258,106,42,"SETVAR;weatherdegrees;||SaveToini;weatherdegrees;",
    make sure you remove "weatherdegrees=" from
    (JUST DELETE THE LINE)
    skin.ini and skin(orig).ini and any of your BACKUP skin.ini's

    these are in the skins/dfx5 folder

    and then you can use DFX5 or RRCONFIG to SET you symbol

    he was using 0186 NOT 0176 (proper)
