    Help w/ Zots Night & weather

    I am using the RoadRunner skin zots night, and I have a question. I have been trying to figure out how to fix the radar/weather maps, they won't update. I have been trying to find out what updates the weather1-weather5 jpeg image files, they are stuck on June 3 2006. I do not know much about moding skins yet, but this is the one thing about zots night that is bugging me, all the other weather info screens work, just not the weather maps. If you can't help, can you point me to someone that can?

    Thanks for your time.

    Sounds to me like you have to go into the "zotsnight/weatherscripts" subdirectory and mod the Autoit script to drop the files in the Zots directory.

    I have tried to do that. In the zots night/weatherscripts directory there are 3 lines of code, but they are not related to the weather maps I am trying to have updated. Zots is looking for weather1, weather2, weather3, weather4 & weater5 jpeg images.

    InetGet("http://maps.wunderground.com/data/640x480/2xcn_st.gif", "C:\Program Files\Road Runner\SKINS\zotsnight\USCWeather.jpg", 1)

    InetGet("http://image.weather.com/web/radar/us_radar_plus_usen.jpg", "C:\Program Files\Road Runner\SKINS\zotsnight\USDoppler.jpg", 1)

    InetGet("http://image.weather.com/images/maps/current/acttemp_600x405.jpg", "C:\Program Files\Road Runner\SKINS\zotsnight\USCTemp.jpg", 1)

    Since I am just starting out trying to mod this, were can I find some info as to what this script is doing? And I don't even think this script is running. When I look at the 3 images it is trying to load, they also have old dates on them (ie. not todays date). So I think my first problem is to get the skin to run the script in the first place, but not sure how.
