    RR.. Needs this bad. Alot of us have wifi at home and at work. I would use RR more if that data was loaded on every wifi connect. Heck I would donate $100 to anyone that makes a plugin to auto update.

    this is not that hard. just go find that program that creates a file everytime that an internet connection is found. then do

    "EXISTS;file.txt" and have it execute something. shouldnt be that hard. ill try tomorrow.


    EDIT: autonetdetect? is this not already done?

    Chucks Online detecter - AutoNetDetect

    ^^^^download that, run chucksonline.exe at RR startup, and then put in exectbl.ini:

    Code:
    "ONLINEPINGON","RELOADWEATHER||UPDATEgpsGAScommand"
    ill split the hundred with chuck and whoever else made it. thanks. haha

    I have something like this working. It checks for an internet connection every so often (whenever you want)...then it will run a command. The command can be in either RR or external commandline (3 of each). Then it can be configured to execute that command every so often(3 of each). Also disconect commands and an online indicator. This little project started because ping doesn't work accurately for me(half of what I connect to via wifi blocks ping even when connected). So, this script doesn't use ping, it checks the size of an online file. I don't know if I'd call it finished yet, but I've ran it a couple of weeks at a time checking every 4 seconds, reloading weather every 250 checks If I ever get it done I'll post the script in the plugins.
    current ini: (some of the variables need to be changed to make more sense)
