yep, that's what i just did ;-)
if you install the new weather.com plus plugin, you can select which radar image it should show:
Settings > Weather > plugin settings.

I like how simple you kept the weather page with the addon script that is. It looks like it belongs there.

i hope so. ;-)
maybe i'll code some other views in the future, like an hourly forecast or 36 hour forecast.
again, if anyone's got some ideas what they would like to see in the new weather page, just let me know.

looks good ronie,
Settings > Weather > plugin settings for map list gives you a category of maps.
you still can have a list of individual maps. it will default to the first map in the categories list. and you can have three categories if you wish.
has the example skin. you should if you want to give the users a choice, be able to copy the static content from the maps xml.
request, a zoom button or a way to zoom the map. the above skin has this feature, by selecting the map itself. (a hidden button)

an hour-by-hour forecast would be great in addition to the 7-day forecast you've got going there. those 2 are all i ever really use.
- kizer - 2009-08-10 05:19
Yep 7 is good enough for the 10 day.
Hourly would be nice
36hour and weekend are kinda redundant since the 7day covers it.
I've used all of the views in the past, but I really like how you keep it simple.
Are you going to keep the weather alerts aka warnings in the script? I've used them in the past and they where very informative looking up other areas where I have family.

Got another addition for you ronie just incase you weren't busy enough! This script was released yesterday and it has the correct code for the transparency skin already. When watching a movie it lets you download the correct subtitles from opensubtitles.org straight from the video popup menu so no need to exit from the film to get them. Been testing it last night and it works great on xbox and windows. If you don't feel it's a necessary addition then not to worry, it's easy enough for others to add to their system if they want it. The weather looks great by the way and very much looking forward to the home theatre support.

I'm pretty keen to give this skin a go but it says that it requires a recent development build. I'm not a developer, is there someplace i can download a build for windows?
