How to make a complete weather skin

Post by Rafamear »

I wanted to complement my skin with a weather but I can't find exactly what I want, I wanted to collect information from weather.com and make a complete skin with temperature, city name, icons that visually show the weather etc.. and everything I need to learn about weather skins

I followed the tech tutorial but in my case, when I finished it, there was an "Â" between the temperature and the Units, any reason for that?

Yes, you must be sure your skin .ini and any .inc include files are encoded as UTF-16 LE.
