So, edit the ...\JDWS-04\@Resources\WeatherParser.inc file and replace the RegExp line from the [mLocationParent] measure to something like:

Code: Select all

RegExp=(?siU)"features":\[\{"type":"Feature","properties":\{"geocoding":\{.*,"label":"(.*)",.*,"admin":\{.*?"level\d+":"(.*)"\}\}\},"geometry":\{"type": "Point","coordinates": \[(.*), (.*)\]\}\}\]
Save the file, right click your skin, choose to refresh it, and it should work.

P.S. The RegExp above is not perfect (it's up to the author to do it, I was only interested in the solution to this), but hopefully it will work long enough.
Wow this is awesome. I was having the same issue and found this post, I created an account just to say thank you!! :thumbup:

You're welcome, glad you're happy with it. May the account creation bring you even more such pleasant surprises in the future! ;-)
If I'm not mistaken, the author of these weather skins updated most of them recently, so the new versions should hopefully work without any modification.

If anyone is still facing issues with weather skin not working... Self-promotion here... :oops: just download this skin https://www.deviantart.com/david8192/art/Neonite-Blue-22-01-13-903704748. It works perfectly fine. It is also very simplified: it is not intimidating to look into it. :lol:

Hi! Can you tell me how to edit properly? I tried from the last posts, but nothing works.

What is not working? Because it does for me. When downloaded the package you've posted, copied the VeryFlatWeather config into the Skins folder, refreshed Rainmeter, on load, the skin got working immediately. So what can't you get working?

You're right, it works. I had to use a VPN. For the last few hours, I've been getting an error, but without it, I get the error again, so. btw, thx you

Yeah, it only works with a VPN now. I don't get it.
