Tempus v13 FINAL - Animated Weather and diamond clock today plugin [Updated 12/07]
This is a animated clock and weather flash theme, it works only of you have flash installed and a flash today plugin, you can test it working here:
It only has 4 buttons:
- Change between clock and weather (the bottom left buttons)
- Configurations (individual, the top right buttons)
- Update weather (the bottom right button)
To use it
- Install Flash 7
- Install ThrottleHTML
Today plugin (thank you so much, APBilbo
(this link seems to gone offline, I've added the cab in the attachments of this post).
- Configure in notepad and copy myConfig.txt
to the \Windows\ThrottleHTML
- On the today settings select the ThrottleHTML Today plugin
: The swf was embebed in the TSK, but since the release of the ThrottleHTML plugin its no longer needed, its already in the CAB. You'll just need the myConfig.txt.
myConfig.txt looks like this:
If you want to know your city weather code:
// English=1, Portuguese=2, German=3 Italian=4 Hungarian=5 Spanish=6 French=7 Dutch=8 Chinese=9 Greek=10
// Want your language? Ask it here.
// 24h=1 12h=2
// Seconds on=1 Seconds off=2
// Black=1 White=2
// Classic=1 Alternative=2
// Place your code here
// Celsious=1 Fahrenheit=2
// Don't change this value, so that the flash file confirms the new variables.
- Go here: http://weather-cities.sytes.net
and copy your city code.
, just click in http://www.accuweather.com
, then in the international tab search for 'city, country'
, and it shows the code in the address link...
New version 13(th):
- fixed a bug in all long dates by...
- decreasing the font date a little
- removing the bottom left buttons, now all that area is a big button
- added the Greek language
- fixed a bug with the 11th and 21th days
- fixed the AM-PM not showing up (behind the seconds)
- The name shoud be tempus_v13, but then the plugin wont recognize it, so leave it as it is, in order to work...
