Not sure if this is the right place to ask but i'm getting strange symbols for the degree sign. Heres a picture

https://gyazo.com/a0f0f98ab8e3f42d3162b79c273e42c9

if the picture doesn't work basically the degree symbols area replaced with "¿1/2" symbols. Never even seen that symbol before.

I tried playing around with the encoding but no luck. Any tips?

Thanks

Try to use in the Text option the following string to show the degree symbol: [\x00B0].
For example using the Text=30[\x00B0]C option, the shown string will look like 30°C.
If you don't succeed, please post a code of the skin you have problems with.

Hi! Apologies for the necro post, and thanks for getting the Enigma weather working again!

I am having issues with the world skins not displaying the correct time. I have three cities set: Ottawa (Canada), Halifax (Canada), and Reykjavik (Iceland), and they are all displaying the incorrect time. I updated both Rainmeter and Enigma and followed the OP's instructions. My computer clock is correct. I am seeing:

Ottawa: UTC -3 (should be -4)
Halifax: UTC -2 (should be -3)
Reykjavik: UTC +1 (should be +0)

Is there some variable that is adding daylight savings time twice?

It appears the information from WXDATA does not correct for daylight savings; the data shows my timezone as -4, but it should be -5. I can not change what they are sending, so any "fix" for DST now, would need to be manually changed back when DST ends... :thumbdown:

You can "fix" it now by modifying 3 measures in "Enigma\Sidebar\World\World.inc" file.
Change TimeZone=[MeasureTimeZone] to TimeZone=([MeasureTimeZone]-1) so it looks like below.
This will have to be manually set back to TimeZone=[MeasureTimeZone] when DST ends this fall.

Code: Select all

[MeasureTime]
Measure=Time
TimeZone=([MeasureTimeZone]-1)
DynamicVariables=1

[MeasureReal1]
Measure=Time
TimeZone=([MeasureTimeZone]-1)
DynamicVariables=1
Format="%#H.%M.%S  ·  %a"
Substitute="Sun":"SUN","Mon":"MON","Tue":"TUE","Wed":"WED","Thu":"THU","Fri":"FRI","Sat":"SAT"

[MeasureReal2]
Measure=Time
TimeZone=([MeasureTimeZone]-1)
DynamicVariables=1
Format="%#d %b  ·  %Y"
Substitute="Jan":"JAN","Feb":"FEB","Mar":"MAR","Apr":"APR","May":"MAY","Jun":"JUN","Jul":"JUL","Aug":"AUG","Sep":"SEP","Oct":"OCT","Nov":"NOV","Dec":"DEC"
I will see if there are any other options to get the correct time.

Thanks, that does the trick! Note that the 3 measures in the Taskbar\World\World.inc file have slightly different names but searching for TimeZone= will find them.

Also, changing the Windows 10 option Date & Time -> Adjust for daylight saving time automatically changes the times in the world skins, but it makes the system time wrong (obviously). I am guessing that Rainmeter / Enigma may be applying that setting on top of the time that it receives from WXDATA.

Good to know that the Taskbar skins are a bit different. :thumbup:
I only looked at the Sidebar versions, so I am sure users will appreciate the additional info regarding the Taskbar versions! :great:

The taskbar versions are very wrong when loading Sunrise and Sunset. Will this fix that too? Thanks.

No... this is a problem with the feed; Weather.com reports the same sunrise and sunset times as the first day for every day it displays.
To correct the sunrise and sunset times you would need to use a different source.
