    Weather in the BMV2 skin

    Ok, Thats STRANGE! I never realized there was no weather button on that skin! It is set up for it, as the skins and images are in the directory, just no link to it from within the skin. I guess you just need to figure out what button you want to sacrafice, and change the button command on it to "WEATHER"

    What is the easiest way to do that? I was thinking the RIP button.

    To change the RIP button, open the "Menu.skin" in a text editor.

    Find this line:
    Code:
    B02,348,70,104,75,"CDRIP","Rip CD"
    and simply change it to this:

    Code:
    B02,348,70,104,75,"WEATHER","Weather"

    Have you remembered the RR.ini entries.
    Example:-
    Put your location in RR Config as [Town], United Kingdom.
    EG. Cardiff, United Kingdom. The Units need to be World.

    My RR.ini entry reads:
    cityweather=Poole, United Kingdom
    weatherunits=WORLD

    From this thread:-
    weather

    EDIT: Make sure the WEATHER folder with the icons in it are in the RoadRunner directory. Check you can access the Web with a browser and if you can, if the above instructions are followed it will work :-)

    The weather maps are not set up in the BMV2 skin. I have a script that I wrote for my skin to download them, based on the URL's you set up in an ini file. You can download my skin at johnwpb.com and use the scripts in there, and just create a skin that matches the BMV2 one. The black version of my skin is close to the BMV2, but would not be a perfect match.

    Many other skins have done the same thing, I know Liquid Smokes & Chucks skin have the weather maps as well.

    I'm not sure you quite understand.
    I've got it going ............ BUT there are already 3 skin files in the latest BMV2 download, but only 2 jpeg's. These are :-
    WEATHER.skin, WEATHER.jpg
    WEATHER_DETAIL.skin WEATHER_DETAIL.jpg
    WEATHERMAP.skin

    But NO WEATHERMAP.jpg
