Ok all fixed - v0.2.1 for the add on and 0.0.6 for the skin if you're using it (otherwise copy the skin files from the add on dir to your Confluence 720p folder or you won't get radar!!) - both are now in the repo and should hit your machines soon.
Don't forget to go into settings and add your radar codes etc...

Awesome job mate How do I force refresh the repo? I've never seen this option anywhere even when I bring up the context menu?

System->Settings->Add Ons->Get Add Ons->Bossanova808 repo -> context menu 'force refresh'

Note the first time it runs it can take a minute or two to get all the radar backgrounds downloaded...

I did that restarted xbmc and when I did a pop up said oz weather add on updated. But I still don't have the radar pics.

You also need to attend to the skin changes (see first post) - either use the skin in my repo, or manually use the skin files in the add on dir and copy these to Confluence/720p....it's all in that first post. Once you make the skin changes, re-start XBMC again...

Are you talking about your skin that allows the extended forecast to display properly? I had already installed that.
I get the radar panel but no radar pics. Also under extended forecast it's blank.
- bossanova808 - 2012-01-17 12:16
Yes that's what I mean. Have you configured the settings yet? I.e. put your radar codes in there and enabled the extended forecast etc.? I think that is what you'd get if you don't enable the settings or put the radar code in...

I also couldn't see the radar image after copying your 720p folder to the main Confluence/720p folder.
Then I noticed in the add-on settings there are two (count them!) instances to set the 'Use extended features' option (see screen shot)...
If I set the first instance ON, then there is no change and as soon as I come back to settings that button is back OFF.
However, if I set the second instance ON (the one at the bottom), then I get extended forecast and radar (yay!) and when I come back to settings both buttons are set to ON.
PS: Great work, bossanova808...

Yeah that will be an old settings file issue - I suspect if you delete your userdata/addon_data/weather.ozweather diretory and start from scratch, that extra setting (which is definitely NOT in the settings.xml file tha defines these things) will disappear as it should.
When you install an add on, it blanks the add on folder, but not addon_data so as to save settings etc, but it also seems this can confuse things if you change settings!
