WindRose
Capture22.PNG
Displays the speed and direction of the wind.

Two variants :kmh/mph


Wind direction is reported by the direction from which it originates.
For example, a NW wind: blows from the NW to the SE.


The compass needle indicates:

-the blue part - the direction from which the wind blows
-the red part - the direction to which the wind blows

Try to adjust the value of X from [MeterCompass] in the ini file.

It looks fine so far. I'll let you know if it breaks when the wind changes. :D

I tested with a loop measure (0~359) pausing the loop measure at 0, 90, 180, and 270 for a few seconds, and like azazello noticed, I am seeing a the compass appear slightly left of center when it is north and south. It is most noticeable in the shadow on the bottom section of the compass rose, but it is a minor issue.
Ii's up to you if you want to modify the code or images. I set the X value to 18 (azazello set it to 19) and it shifted the compass so the pointer is closer to the shadow line. :confused:

I still like what you created :17good !

Strange, because for me it looks ok with X = 17 (for example, the image posted by me above), and with x = 18, the compass moves very slightly to the right. :???:
I think I will set the value of X to 18 to be in the middle between 17 and 19
Anyway, thanks because you had the patience to test it.

It can be difficult to align rotators; retired expert moshi always set the image code size 1 pixel smaller in both directions than the actual image to correct for wobble.

Looking Good! :beer:
