Is it possible to create a Textures.xbt file with weather fanart included? Just thinking in optimizing performance on Pis and low-end hardware Smile

Ok, so there's one thing I don't yet get about this image pack.

If you look in the utilities.py file in the XBMC/addons/weather.wunderground/resources/lib directory, you see the following list of weather codes:

Quote:WEATHER_CODES = { 'chanceflurries' : '41',
'chancerain' : '39',
'chancesleet' : '6',
'chancesnow' : '41',
'chancetstorms' : '38',
'clear' : '32',
'cloudy' : '26',
'flurries' : '13',
'fog' : '20',
'hazy' : '21',
'mostlycloudy' : '28',
'mostlysunny' : '34',
'partlycloudy' : '30',
'partlysunny' : '34',
'sleet' : '18',
'rain' : '11',
'snow' : '42',
'sunny' : '32',
'tstorms' : '38',
'unknown' : 'na',
'' : 'na',
'nt_chanceflurries' : '46',
'nt_chancerain' : '45',
'nt_chancesleet' : '45',
'nt_chancesnow' : '46',
'nt_chancetstorms' : '47',
'nt_clear' : '31',
'nt_cloudy' : '27',
'nt_flurries' : '46',
'nt_fog' : '20',
'nt_hazy' : '21',
'nt_mostlycloudy' : '27',
'nt_mostlysunny' : '33',
'nt_partlycloudy' : '29',
'nt_partlysunny' : '33',
'nt_sleet' : '45',
'nt_rain' : '45',
'nt_snow' : '46',
'nt_sunny' : '31',
'nt_tstorms' : '47',
'nt_unknown' : 'na',
'nt_' : 'na'}

This seems to use less than half of the 47 directories full of images in the image pack, and some of the descriptions here don't really match the ones that I've seen quoted before in the list of 47.

Can we safely delete half of these directories that aren't in the list above and still have things work properly? I'm running on a Raspberry Pi, so space is at a premium...

Since I've spent so much time and effort modifying and adding backdrops into DarkScout and Nuka1195's original weather fanart packs, I thought I would share my results with the community and upload my modified Weather Fanart Pack with you all Cool

All of the categories have been sorted through and completely revamped - all pictures are high quality 1920x1080 images, and the backdrop in each weather category much more accurately reflects the weather status! (e.g. heavy rain looks heavy, and light rain looks like it's sprinkling out)

Right now, it's hosted over at KickAssTorrents as a torrent file, which you can grab here:

I hope you all enjoy!

Been wanting to do this for a while and of course when I start the process I can't find the image pack. Thanks to you I have it now. Seems like I need to help seed it though Smile

Would love to my hands on the pack but KAT is blocked here (UK) and I am having no luck via proxy!

Any ideas?

Has anyone attempted to bridge the weather conditions fanart to the home background lately?

Member "pkscuot" worked it out here in 2012 but I have gone into the latest 720p.xml file and the block of text he suggested to change has been changed or deleted since.

I can see "butchabay" has stated that you can only have one or the other a few posts back in this thread but surely we can work out a way to feed one into the other, even if there was a small delay.

I've downloaded three times, every time corrupt archive, every time a different file size 48-53mb.

Anybody else getting this?!

Edit:
So apparently chrome was being a bit strange. Archive downloaded fine on my phone, transferred to my desktop and extracted fine!

Thanks for the effort :-)
