In an effort to make the skin faster and more efficient than before, the skin now has a plugin, just for the DFX skin. Many of the tedious functions and code are being moved to it, and it really is speeding and cleaning things up. The Exectbl.ini that handles all the skin stuff normally, has been reduced by over 300 lines of code so far. Tony has moved all of the button chooser code for the main menu buttons into there and updated the code to work with the new way of doing it I put together. Not surprising actually, but it is so much faster how it all works now.
One of the features I have added to it, is a weather feature I really like on my iPhone, Hourly Weather. A broad statement for the day of "20% chance of rain" does not really tell you all that much. Having an hourly breakdown, can really help you try to plan things better.
In this example for instance, you can see that during the day in Detroit, it is fairly nice, but at around 11 o'clock at night, there are chances of rain and storms. This way, you can plan better for driving delays and such. We all know the weather forecast is never bulletproof, but this give you a lot better chances than just saying a "20% chance of rain fr the day" :)
Oooh, I likey!
who the heck is Tony? :loco:
None of the stuff being moved is really an "Option". For instance the press and hold to choose what you want on the main menu, its not an option, but the way the skin works.
For everything that could be concidered an option, there will be toggles in the global settings skin to toggle stuff on and off.
I am not sure quite what you mean, by it being turned off really..... The ExecTbl.ini is just an extension of code to process when a button is pressed.
the "WeatherZoomer" is simply a command that is fired from a button to do that function. There is no reason to need to turn it on or off....
The only execption is the ONSKINSTART section, and that will of course remain in the ExecTbl, and can be altered and changed by the user.
