Weather configuration - New to RainMeter

Post by JohnCoool »

I installed the rainmeter and it is great. I am currently trying to configure Weather from a Skin that I installed.

It seems to have two Notepad files with for each weather ini file one seems to just be for the location. So I am pasting them here both below.

I am getting the 12002 error. Can I get some tips on how they work.

1st one

2nd one is

Code: Select all

[Variables]

; Getting and setting your LocationCode can be done one of several ways.
; 
; Go to https://weather.com/
; Search for your city by name.
; Use the long number at the end of the resulting URL, for example:
; https://weather.com/weather/today/l/1665d9e3052c3448be48dafc1587318a27ee85516e97e0b5376043cd41a4f0e
; The LocationCode would be 1665d9e3052c3448be48dafc1587318a27ee85516e97e0b5376043cd41a4f0e
; Copy and enter that as the value for LocationCode below.
; LocationCode=1665d9e3052c3448be48dafc1587318a27ee85516e97e0b5376043cd41a4f0e
;
; You can also use the location code used in earlier skins using wxdata as the source.
; LocationCode=1665d9e3052c3448be48dafc1587318a27ee85516e97e0b5376043cd41a4f0e
;
; Alternatively, in the USA, you can simply use your ZipCode as the LocationCode.
; LocationCode=22308


LocationCode=1665d9e3052c3448be48dafc1587318a27ee85516e97e0b5376043cd41a4f0e


; If another language or unit(s) of measures are desired, simply go to https://weather.com/
; Using the controls at the top of the page, set your country and units of measure as desired.
; Copy and enter the Language from the resulting URL.

; For example, French would be Units=fr-FR
; The unit(s) of measure are automatic, based on the language.
; For instance, you cannot have the language be French, but the units be F imperial.

; Note however, that simply changing from imperial F to metric C units of measure while keeping the 
; langage as English can be done by using en-GB as the Language.

Units=en-US

WeatherIcons=#ROOTCONFIGPATH#\@Resources\Weathericons
Language=English


TimeZone=+3
SETTINGS=#CURRENTPATH#\config.exe
WEATHER.COM=http://www.weather.com/#Units#/weather/today/#LocationCode#



; How often to update the weather information. Default is 600 or 10 minutes.

UpdateRate=600

; Don't change these.

URLcurrent=https://weather.com/#Units#/weather/today/l/#LocationCode#

Re: Weather configuration - New to RainMeter

Post by eclectic-tech »

The 'long' location code in the example no longer works.

You need to follow the instructions at the top of the second file to obtain a value for LocationCode, either your 'long' code, or use your zip code, or the old weather.com code: USVA0944.

If it still does not work, the weather files may be outdated and need to be updated with the latest weather.com version.

What is the name of your skin package by 99villages?

If you want to share your location or code, we can test it in other weather skins.

Thanks, I installed another Skin that uses another weather service that also did not work called Simplic.
How does it connect to the internet. Do I need anything special or is it just done by the ini file?

I can also try one that is working if someone would send it to me.

I am pasting the info in the ini file here below.

That skin by HipHopium uses the old (pre-January 2020) WXData site that is no longer supplied by The Weather Channel!
HipHopium is not able to update his multitude of weather skins, so I doubt this skin will be updated to the new weather source.

I would recommend looking at some of these updated skins to find one that work.
