Any idea what might be causing the font issue? Since this weather panel is basically just scripts reading XML files and making registry changes, I can't imagine that it'd be too hard to figure out what's causing the PIE font issue. The font issue isn't a huge deal and I'd completely ignore it if it weren't for the fact that the digital font makes no differentiation between upper and lower case and many special characters just show up as boxes.

I dumped the 10-day panel and added a link to the Weather Update in my links panel if I ever decide to manually update the weather.
After messing around with things for a while, I finally figured it out. I renamed \Windows\LCD.ttf to LCD.bak and rebooted. Now PIE uses its regular Courier font instead of the LCD font. Weird issue and I'm surprised that PIE seems to randomly grab a fixed-width font from \Windows but whatever. This fix probably means I can't use the LCD clock font, but I'm not using that option anyway. Probably just a Moto Q9c issue.

I'm very happy! Small Paypal donation made. (Note, Organic, your latest version thread here doesn't have a Paypal link - found it on another thread.)

While digging around, I noticed that the SPWeather.home.xml files and most of the cpr files are using the Nina font, which I don't think my phone has. My default chome_320x240.cpr file uses Segoe. Several of the portrait-style cpr files use Segoe instead of Nina.

Great application! Useful, beatiful graphic, fully integrated with UI and layout; try to sell it to MS (or to HTC), before they copy the concept and the code

Thank you.
No hope it can be adapted to WM6, to use it as a plugin for home?
At present I'm using Fizz Weather, but I really like the crisp graphics of NRG Weather.

He's using a dark, but partially transparent image on the slide, this is due to the fact that he's trying to make all of the info appear better on the screen as to adapt to different types of wallpapers people use. If you used a very light background image for example, and he didnt use that filter, the white text would be difficult to see.
