I've check all the degree symbols in ini files but nothing goes wrong. I think it might cause by the Chinese text-encode(BIG5) what I use.

[HELP] I like it a lot, but I get some funky "x" to the right of the degree symbol. Any suggestion as to how I can rid of them? And yes, I have my zipcode correctly placed in the script. [HELP]

I applaud your decision to use something other than rssweather (hate that thing), but I can't get this to read the xml feed. And I've got the "x" too. [EDIT] Nevermind, I got it. The trick is simply to substititute the locality number within the originally scripted url, not to replace the url. My bad. It would be nice if there was a way to change the font color; this is nearly invisible on anything other than a dark background. [EDIT] Nevermind, found that too. "X" is always going to display as "X", you might want to change that to a more universal character set.

Does anyone know from where moxamax got the "id=" and "StringIndex=" codes? I'd like to customize my copy of the script a bit. I emailed moxamax, but haven't yet got a response. Looks like he's been inactive for about a year.

Please respond here or pm me if you can help, plz.

If you want this work properly you're going to have to open up "Taipei - 4days.ini" and/or "Taipei - today.ini" and replace the all the "¢X" with "ºC" (I used Notepad++ for this).

There are five of these in total. Then save the .ini, refresh all, and it should work.

This is a great little tool.

This is a very nice, clean, and simple skin. But my weather code (CAXX0485) doesn't seem to show the weather description (e.g. Cloudy) and also the the weather icon next to it. Any ideas to fix it? Thanks.

Excellent skin! But I'm having a problem. After about 2 hours, the words become unreadable because parts of the letters are missing. I have tried playing around with the anti-aliasing but that didn't seem to help. I don't think it is anything in the script causing this but I can't figure out what it could be.

Excellent skin was just what I was looking for.Looks quite good with the clock called digital circles. I notice some people are having problems reading the skin. I've only just started using rainmeter. But what I did was change all the FontColor to 255,255,255,255 and increase the FontSize up by one point (i.e 10 to 11 or 7 to8). Which made it brighter and a bit larger making it easier to see and read.
