don't forget

in europe we use 433 mhz in US 915mhz for the sensor unit

in the folder Update EasyWeather

you need to edit the main.ini file then do the upgrade again via micro sdcard

so in the main.ini file change this to Frequency=915M as shown below

[Main]
Title=WS-1001
Version=2.2.5
Update Time=2015-01-01 12:00:00

[Option]
WH26=false
Transmitter=WH24
Frequency=915M
Units=Metric
Langue=English
TimeZone=15
LuxToWM2=1267
UVISlope=100
Backlight=false
Brightness=false
StationID=ISTANBUL161
Password=xxxxxxx

hope that helps.

Wow, once I've fixed some problems with my weather station I look forward to giving this a try. Am I correct that as part of this design change one loses the temperature graph over 72 hrs? Not temporarily as with any firmware reset but that it is replaced?
The screenshot seems to indicate that to me. Is it possible to choose the graph?

Thanks,
Philly

I was able to get the new screen layout by uploading to 2.2.5 via microSD but it was not communicating with the sensor. Tried above "fix" by setting Frequency to 915M and now my console does not recognize the firmware change when inserting the microSD card.  Instead it just boots up with the new display [2.2.5] and does not ask me for permission to update by press any key and thus still no communication with sensor. So I thought that I would just revert back to 2.2.2 but inserting the card with that version still does not ask me to update and display is still stuck with 2.2.5.  :-(
Are there any other changes that I could do to the .ini files in order for the console to recognize the new (or old) firmware??? Or am I going to have to connect my laptop up to the console via USB and make some sort of changes directly to the files on the console?

Hi,

I was able to fix my weather station and deleted a semi related but now outdated post. I have two questions for you.

1. Does this work with WS 1000? The reason I ask is that our newest firmware is 1.12.1 and not near 2.2.5 also there are numerous warnings not to upgrade to X.X if one is not already at 2.0.0 or one risks "bricking' the station. I made a mistake with the original firmware with taking a too new version of the 1001 (not intended of course for the 1000) and it did not correctly update. I was very lucky and could revert back to the 1000 version (1.12.1) That is why I ask if I really can go to 2.2.5

2. If it does work and I try it, am I correct that we lose the historical graph in the top left? I ask because that is one of the surprise favorite features/views of my family. They like to visualize the temperature fluctuations over a couple of days. On your screenshot it seems to be missing. I wasn't sure if it can be substituted in the settings but I doubt it.

3. Again looks very snazzy!

hi

connect the unit to windows pc , the unit should show up as NAND in the my computer screen, drag the main.ini file over to your desktop and edit the line , save it and drag it back over and reboot.  the original way I was always editing live from the usb connection as opposed to scared updates every time .

however I am sure somewhere in the forum section there is mention of changing the date at the top of the main.in file , never done it myself but i guess changing it a later date than the one shown below. or even change the version number to 2.2.6 might work as well.

really can't help you there with WS1000 however themeing the WS1000 will probably be the same layout but your right WS1000 is using a totally different firmware. yes every upgrade firmware you will lose the historical data however you still see the graphs as normal you don't lose anything and after 72 hours your back to normal full graph display, the weather icons are displayed when switched by using the graph button. by default in the 2.2.5 they are disabled .

switch them on with shown below in the main.ini file using false.. note they are relative to barometer changes they do not reflect true outside weather conditions.

[Function]
Autolight=true
DST=true
DatFile=false
FileUnit=false
NotUV=false
GraphApi=true    true or false
SunMoon=true
HeatIndex=true
ConnPC=true
WH60=false

Re: changing firmware from 433M to 915M
I'd done the console update via SD card to your 2.2.5 flawlessly and because my console is hardwired onto a wall, I thought that I would try to change the version DATE to a later date via SD card and curiously that did not work. Then tried changing the version to 2.2.6 via SD card and curiously that did not work either. So how the heck does it recognize firmware updates???
So I dragged a laptop over to the wall unit and connected it via USB and changed the file via your instructions and voila, instant success!
Within five minutes, I received this email from wunderground:
ATTENTION: Weather Station Owner
Congratulations! Your personal weather station (ID #KCAGRASS50) is back online!
You can see your PWS data here: http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=KCAGRASS50
THANKS again for the cool display layout, but do let us know if there is any way to change the background to the lighter colored version... :-)

hi friends
the way to don't clear the database ,when you update must change this option in "update.ini"
[Main]
Version=2.2.5
Update Time=2015-08-01 12:00:00
Hardware=2.0
Initialize=true
Update=all
Delete=all
DeleteParam=false
DeleteDatabase=false

[Delete]
;file1=EasyWeather.exe
;file2=Themes\

[Update]
;file1=EasyWeather.exe
;file2=Themes\


then the console don`t clear the database
in my last update i can't clear database

Wish I would have known that sooner! Oh well. No great loss--have only had my station a few months.

However, I would like to restore the .20 inches of rain that we have had so far this season. I haven't looked too hard for the solution but does anyone know how to do that or where I might find the info??

 Under the Setup - Calibration screen, you can manually re-enter your rainfall values for the day, week, month and year.

Upgraded in about 5 seconds with no problems. Great job on the screen as many times better than the original. Hoping the old burn-in images from the original format will go away as giving it a ghost effect.

I Mirek from the Czech Republic and I am very interested update to firmware 2.2.5 design HomeWeatherStation.
I plan to buy a model HP1000 (jeoznačení manufacturer's Fine offset).
Do you think it will be possible to update this station like this?

How they look in a new design, as well as other sites on the station - I mean design graphs etc. Do you have any pictures?

Thank you for answer
Mirek

Post by: weather34 on October 22, 2015, 04:26:05 AM
hi

think you are asking can you update that model? yes it is possible however you need to check the firmware version when you have received it .

it is not possible to change the appearance of graph layouts this area is written in the firmware executable file .

it only possible to change the appearance via image layout .

do I have pictures ?  are you asking pictures of how to upgrade?

as always all firmware upgrades are done at your own risk so please be careful and please do some research on how to upgrade never assume .

this firmware modification download will not work with WS1000 only WS1001 models and clones.

have fun .

hi
thank you so much for the info. I mean picture screens which are graphs. Just look how others viewed pages on the weather station.
And another question.
It is also possible for the lower model (WS1000) set of wundergroud, displayed on a Web page, such as the view from within a form, such as .:http://wetter.koglerau.at/

What is the requirement for firmware that is appropriate for the update? I mean, that version must be listed on the station?


thank you, Mirek

Great design a big improvement over the factory version.

However i have a question. Your screen design is very one colour, is this becasue the screen itself does not have great colour. It is possible to change the colour of the units from white to another colour?

Thanks  Karl

it is possible but there not fonts the actual units are built on a png sprite it would take days to make and a lot of trial of and error getting it right . i went for white(ish) .

Hi,

Please provide explanations concerning vs WS1000 WS1001. Surely this will be of interest to other participants in this forum.

On the official website ambientweather.com is the product WS-1001-WIFI OBSERVER, a guide to station WS1000 model? See: http://www.ambientweather.com/amws1000wifi.html
Instructions stated:

I searched the internet for a long time the differences between these models and the only explanation I have found that the WS1001 is:
1st more memory (I do not know what is more memory, 38 or 39 megabytes?)
Second displaying east sunset and moon phase

Manufacturer of Fine Offset Electronics Co., Ltd., has officially only one model (WS1000)
http://www.foshk.com/Weather_Professional/

On your picture what model station? I see that he does not displaying sunrise / sunset - it is therefore WS1000 ??
(http://)
Title: Re: improving the the WS1001 (clones) screen layout
Post by: weather34 on November 01, 2015, 10:14:51 AM
i think you answered your own question

ws1001 and ws1000 are two different models and the features you highlighted are not available on ws1000

39m is 39 megabytes storage

3826M is 3826MB storage

ws1001 clones http://www.foshk.com/Weather_Professional/HP1000.htm

ws1000 clones http://www.foshk.com/Weather_Professional/HP1003.htm

i don't own ws1000 so i can't give you any more specific details or clarify anything regarding that model perhaps someone here owns the ws1000 can be more specific.
screenshot is an old model i believe

Hi,

thank you very much for your quick response.
I'm not sure looking at your picture. Is there a model station in the old firmware (without showing the sunrise / sunset) and the next image in new firmware with sunrise / sunset.

This firmware update 2.2.5 offers a others newly show (I mean the sunrise / sunset) ???

Thank you for your link

If I please have one answer.
I do not understand English well - please, what does that mean? "Certain makeup and you are running Firmware Version 2.xx"

The update is necessary to download gradually? Or you can skip several versions ..

Máte s ambient weather nějaké zkušenosti?

Viděl jsem, že děláte šablony pro zpracování dat o počasí? Múžeme si napsat soukromě, mimo tento chat?

hi

try this might help can't confirm as we still are hitting 20c in the daytime  ,unless i put the indoor sensor in the freezer for an hour ....

just replace the font images in the themes/FONTS folder  (zip file attached)

note the data readout is actually a png sprite not a real font) all i did was lift the transparency on the minus sign , it is there but may be too much transparency on it. might help if it don't its something else altogether

Thanks for reply.
The new .png files are now on my WS-1001.
Danish Meteorological Institute think I unfortunately have to wait more than two weeks before I can see if it works. We still have an unusually mild autumn and temperatures above zero degrees Celsius.
I give a hint when I know more.

First post on here, but, I'd like to say a big thank you to the OP who made those new graphics.
I have a clone of the WS-1001, made by 'Aercus' - I'm pretty farmiliar and confident when it comes to meddling with things like this, so I had no hesitation of updating to it, and it looks brilliant!
PS: Read through all the posts, so no data was lost, etc..

Many thanks. :-)

Quick question; I've noticed that the time and sunset/sunrise font is still the same as the original one, is it not possible to change it to the one that is used for the rest of the display?

hi

not sure are you saying the icons or the text on sunrise , icons should be different from original however the text output would require editing the executable file which can be risky if not to familiar with the code. I won't do it too risky . nothing worse than having a screwed up rom file .

if its the icons check they are in the folder THEME/SUN

hi diego

this was fixed a few weeks ago but if you need the new font files here it is http://www.idesign34.com/pwszip/fonts.zip  , just need to replace the png files in the THEMES/FONTS folder.  you can test it upon bootup you should see dashes while the unit searches for sensors .

hope that helps .

It looks like you haven't done it properly. I had the same issue until I saw the posts on here- rectified it after downloading the link to the fixed font files.
I suggest trying again, and make sure your console definitely says it is upgrading the firmware. :)

That's the way I did it. I Changed the firmware number up a digit, so that it treats it as a firmware upgrade. As I mentioned, it worked.

Yes, protected and we had a long discussion about it on a different forum.... :D I would rather not talk about this any more... the bottomline is he several times "left" this forum only to come back a bit later, then problems started again and now he is (most likely) gone for good. It is a shame, he is skillful, but the problem was his attitude and approach and there are things I would rather not talk about...

I am not exactly sure what he did, but he did make some protection inside the JS files so that it only worked if you wrote to him and he sent you the code via email with some ID or so (which he does not do any more and for some reason left the homepage online, probably to provoke people who would like to use it)

Yes, you are absolutely right, it is in fact not that difficult as he thinks... especially if you simply download the original jQuery code and do simple comparison. But I did not mention this on the other forum and did not even crack the code simply because of his approach and if he wants it to be protected... his decision. Plus he is no longer interested in developing it and does not even want to offer it so I guess there is not much point in dealing with it.

well, I already started to build my own custom template based on WordPress. It doesn't use clientraw or anything, it's all JSON driven. Guess I'll continue to develop it.

The picture shown looks like a ws1000, as it shows no sunrise,sunset, or moon?

Yet the updated picture of the new display looks really cool and a ws1001.

I just got an Aercus, which is an Ambient clone and looking at the display says about says:

Os version 5.0.4
Firmware revision 2.2.7

So appears totally different to 2.2.5 your mentioning here.

I believe 2.2.2 firmware, I think fixed the sunrise problem that when you where in daylight saving mode fixed the issue of sunrise time being an hour out.

Mine has that issue, when in daylight saving time the sunrise is 1 hour out. Instead of the time being 6:56am, it says, or said 5:56am, so got around this by the time zone setting of +13, instead of New Zealand time of +12? And we are using the frequency of 4.33mhz.

Also we have to recalibrate the wind direction to 180 degrees.

Now mine is working great, but never seen a firmware 2.2.7? So how does this effect having the nice looking new screen, which looks miles better than the factory one.

So what firmware versions did your station have?

After reading the Ambient does not show say a -2 degrees centre grade is a serious issue, but as its not winter here, do not know if this is still an issue, and as yet reluctent to try this mod as I just got it and don't want to brick it.

Also does the mod wipe everything? As I had to recalibrate it to use in the Southern Hemisphere.

I don't want to have to change it, if it is showing - temps, but read on this forum they do not show - temps?

So never seen this 2.2.7 firmware before? Do they customise firmware for the different countries?

hello yes the picture is the ws1000 without sunrise only thing i could find useable on the internet as did not have an image of my default ws1001 .

the issue of minus symbol was fixed months ago and the download has the fix included .i been saying for this a long time so its not a serious issue anymore.

however 2.2.7 firmware  hmmm I'm not sure and certainly wouldn't risk it at this stage, the download for the screen modification is for 2.2.5 not 2.2.7 so please don't use it .

i have not seen reference as you say to 2.2.7 mentioned however it could be forthcoming and I could check it out if there is any significant change however i doubt that but who knows. moreover that the guy at Fine Offset sent me a screenshot of what they may impliment in a future release of these clones and have to say its pretty impressive on the eye and looks very different and fresh , modern . but i have not heard anything for a while about it.

so please wait and don't risk it , if anything appears I'm sure we can adapt it .

More then happy to download the new version but I have a question.

An annoyance with doing these software/firmware upgrades is the fact that the console loses all of its memorized settings and calibrations. The console also loses all of its records on the screen that shows times and dates that extremes have occurred. I notice in the update.ini file under the section
Code: [Select]
[Main] there is a line that says
Code: [Select]
DeleteParam=False and another that says
Code: [Select]
DeleteDatabase=True. Just wondering if you were to change the second line (The database one) whether that saved data would be preserved. It is nuisance having to start from scratch every time particularly as I live in the southern hemisphere and have to recalibrate it for wind direction every time a software update comes out. 
Title: Re: improving the the WS1001 (clones) screen layout

Put that line in, and nothing is deleted.

save more time ,save the original wireless.dat from your unit to your desktop and add it/copy it to the new 2.2.9 upgrade folder on the sd card etc :-)

looking at the 2.2.9 nothing major to stop using modified screen layout ,just copy the themes.ini file and modified theme  folder everything looks the same as in theme structure .

the app for the mac won't work on yosemite/el capitan as these don't support power pc apps however you can make it work just by changing the extension from app to zip ,
change easyweatherip-mac-1_0.app  to easyweatherip-mac-1_0.zip. its pretty basic but i see its easy to customise the layout and colour but it does exactly what sez and you don't need to specifically upgrade from 2.2.5 to make it connect to the unit .

It looks identical to the WS1001. The default design of the WS1200 is boring and confusing.

Would love to try this on the WS1200 if it will work?

i just downloaded the firmware https://ambientweather.wikispaces.com/ws1200-ip for the ws1200-ip 2.17 dated 2014 and its an identical structure for the theme folder so i see no reason why not .

secondly the server.ini is identical

[Menu]
default=www.wunderground.com
web=1
web1=www.wunderground.com

[www.wunderground.com]
Server=rtupdate.wunderground.com
ServerType=php
ServerPort=80

ReadOnly=true


so you can apply the simple mod to send data to your server without ddwrt or anything else ..

... should have no problems with just adding theme folder .
Hello
New-boy here - i’m happy to have found this site and this thread on editing various clones of theWs1001.

I have a Maplin N23DQ SolarWifi WStation (UK-433mhz) which i believe is one of the rebranded ones that come from Fineoffset in China.  After some mistakes updating my firmware to something published on an American site I contacted Fineoffset and they kindly sent me new firmware: 
‘[Main]
Title=HP2000
Version=2.2.9
Update Time=2015-01-01 12:00:00’

After reading everything on this thread I changed the firmware version number to a higher number, edited the ‘update.ini’ delete database=false instead of true and everything updated perfectly. The station has been happily uploading to WU for weeks without probs.

I would now like to change the screen to the OP’s and was wandering if I should just copy and replace just the ‘Themes’ folder to my memory card and run the firmware update again (edited with yet another higher firmware number) or do I need to copy anything else from the OP’s files. I’m using Mac and it will not recognise the station via USB connector and I don’t own a PC, hence I can’t just plug it in and change the files as discussed in this thread.

I want to take the plunge and try it but I notice that there are quite a few more files in the OP’s ‘Themes’ directory compared to the ones that are working on my station, including a ‘Themes.ini’ and another ‘Themes.ini’ within the ‘fonts’ folder - Maybe these are there in error and don’t have any effect? but after previous experience am a little hesitant

Has anybody tried just replacing the ‘themes folder’ on their firmware upgrade to achieve this better display?

ps - here's the link to the 2.2.9 (433mhz) version i was sent by FineOffset if anybody wants it
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/p7dghdz5hlpkon8/AAAPYjXEHykQh0ZyJDxI16iKa?dl=0

hi i haven't used or tested with 2.2.9 but i know some others have and no issues as I am aware of, you right just replace the themes folder , as for the extra main.ini i tend to dump them into a folder somewhere to fall back on if I change something and it don't work so you can leave them there or remove them. as for mac will only work in a virtual environment as the unit is basically written on Windows CE .
have fun brian..

Thanks for the encouragement Brian (-:

My 2.2.9 works with your display tweak:
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

I just had to remember to edit the 'update.ini' by changing 'DeleteDatabase=true" to false (so as to keep my old data) + also re-calibrate relative Hpa (and also edit the firmware version to a number higher than what it was before to enable the update via memorycard - since I don't own a windows machine)

eg; if your firmware is 2.2.5 edit it to 2.2.6.
In my case I had allready edited it to 2.3.2 so had to change it to 2.3.3 to achieve the results in this post - but it's just a case of entering up a number that is higher than what firmware number you allready have installed and you'll be good to go :grin:

.. everything works - so thank you very much +1 rep

just replace the themes folder don't have to specifically do a full upgrade to get the changed console display. if you ar eon windows just connect via usb and drag the folder over replacing existing themes folder as a caution save your original on the console to your desktop.

If youre doing the update via the memory card and not directly via USB then don't forget to edit the firmware version up by one increment in any file on the card that will update the firmware.. See previous comments by other users.

Also it would be interesting to see your display after you successfully update to new display, there was a peculiar thing happening in the 'solar radiation' display field when I did it. See my image in a post above

Good luck

* this download has the peculiar solar radiation fix however it never appeared on mine,i found a slight transparent mark on the UVI.png that was causing the appearance
of that peculiar appearance.

Just to clarify to anyone reading this thread. If you use a SD card to update any part of your WS1001 (Maplin N23DQ) et al' clone weatherstation's software you'll need to change the firmware number up by one increment to make it work. If you do it by USB cable via windoze (copy and paste/replace) then it'll probably be another matter. I don't know as I haven't tried it.

WS1001homweatherstation\Update EasyWeather\

windows users plug console into usb port with appropriate lead device/console will appear as a NAND in file explorer
,you only need to copy over the theme.ini and theme folder nothing else required its not a full firmware upgrade .

mac users can only use the SDCARD upgrade method so you will need to obtain a firmware download from the manufacture or reseller of your device and then replace
the theme.ini and theme folder in the downloaded package from your manufacturer/reseller .

beware of using the firmware download from the ambient wiki site it is specifically for north american consoles and you would need to make additional changes to the main.ini
file to make the upgrade recognise the outdoor/ indoor sensors . best practice is to get proper firmware release from your manufacturer/reseller .

i still only use 2.2.5 as numerous upgrade releases have caused issues with various units . so always backup your original firmware on the console.

think you would have to update via the sdcard method to overwrite the files that have file permissions on the console.no way of directly editing the files on the console you can only edit on your desktop etc.

to get barometer weather icons back edit the main.ini
GraphApi=false to  GraphApi=true

minus symbol is a image that is used in various data output to highlight below zero temps etc .  there are 5 graphic images for the numbers you have to determine which one
is connected to the Solar reading , its not easy and requires some time to work out and be careful not to remove the minus symbol from the graphic connected to the temperature readings.

you will have too edit the main.ini and update.ini and change the date forward example:

I can confirm that updating (re-writing in an editor) the date and the firmware number (to ones higher than your previous one's in 'main' and 'update' ini) works. So when you put the SD card back in the Weather station it will recognise it as an update when you plug in in and turn it on.

I can't comment on doing this via USB direct to the weatherstation since I use a Mac.

Well I finally got around to updating to 2.2.9. Being in Australia I had to modify the Freq parameter and alter the version # (I changed it 2.9.95) and date (changed to 2-2-2015). Update as installed but now I have no network connectivity. Indoor and outdoor units are picked up by console OK but I don't have the Internet or Wifi symbols showing at all and don't have the network setup options available in my setup menus.

Hi Pooley,

I am convinced that 2.2.9 is what made my panel's WiFi malfunction. I have been out since March. The panel is out of warranty so when I tried, I didn't get any help. But if you look at the current manual page 42 it says you must have this level of firmware to communicate with EasyWeather IP. That was my motive for trying it.

7. EasyWeather IP Software
Note: The  console  must  be  running  Firmware  Version  2.2.9  or  greater  to  use  the  software.

G'day mate. Saw that thread but didn't click with me to post in that thread  #-o

I have it back up and running now (on 2.2.5) but can't get 2.2.9 to take properly without killing the WiFi.

Will elaborate in the other (more appropriate) thread later today.

G'day mate. Saw that thread but didn't click with me to post in that thread  #-o

I have it back up and running now (on 2.2.5) but can't get 2.2.9 to take properly without killing the WiFi.

Do you maybe have the files to modify the screen ? can get them any more on
Could someone help me out with just updating the display? I'm not too sure which theme.ini file needs to be used from the download and which needs to be replaced?
Where did you get the files from i cant get them any more on iDesign34

Thanks for the encouragement Brian (-:

My 2.2.9 works with your display tweak:
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

I just had to remember to edit the 'update.ini' by changing 'DeleteDatabase=true" to false (so as to keep my old data) + also re-calibrate relative Hpa (and also edit the firmware version to a number higher than what it was before to enable the update via memorycard - since I don't own a windows machine)

eg; if your firmware is 2.2.5 edit it to 2.2.6.
In my case I had allready edited it to 2.3.2 so had to change it to 2.3.3 to achieve the results in this post - but it's just a case of entering up a number that is higher than what firmware number you allready have installed and you'll be good to go :grin:

.. everything works - so thank you very much +1 rep
Where did you get this awesome screen do you have the files to get is look so good, ore where did you get it from ? thanks

http://www.idesign34.com/homepws/ws1001.php

update contains not showing below zero sign and compressed file size for main.png no other changes to functionality so only update if you are not seeing the below zero minus sign.

(http://idesign34.com/downloads/ws1000final.jpg)


if the download link returns a 404 page please email me it is due to testing a rather large database that pushes the server cpu to 100% usage at times , hopefully it will be moved off in the next few weeks.

ps.. don't believe everything you read sometimes things happen for a reason. often individuals will jump to negative conclusions without any thought or facts.  need something just email me
Wher did you get this awesome display software on idesign34 the are gone please help me

I was able to copy over all the files except: Alarm, Handel-Gothic-D-light, MBICON, select & 6. These appear to be locked on the WS? Is there a way to access these files without running the application?

The solar rad shows the number with a "-"? How can the graph in the upper left display the forecast?

I have the same problem with the "-" symbol did you fix it yet ?

think you would have to update via the sdcard method to overwrite the files that have file permissions on the console.no way of directly editing the files on the console you can only edit on your desktop etc.

to get barometer weather icons back edit the main.ini
GraphApi=false to  GraphApi=true

minus symbol is a image that is used in various data output to highlight below zero temps etc .  there are 5 graphic images for the numbers you have to determine which one
is connected to the Solar reading , its not easy and requires some time to work out and be careful not to remove the minus symbol from the graphic connected to the temperature readings.
Is there a solution for the minus "-" symbol showing on the solar radiation ?

Hi, I have to thank Brian, I upgraded with software modified by him my HP1003 weather station, upgrade went perfectly well and now my station displays in its display the new layout, so I recommend to those who have this station model, to upgrade by minisd, important to change the update number (example from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 on main.ini and update.ini files). As soon as I can post a photo.

Let me see if I got this correct. If you are going to be doing this via USB all you have to do is drag the "Themes" folder over to the firmware that's on the console? No need to edit any files on the console before/after doing so correct? Then just restart the console and you're on your way?

Hello not sure your talking about the screen modification ? but the template i think

anyway for wind direction you would need to edit css with border lines for example a triangle(pointer) a simple way but adding this into the template is not so easy unless your confident in the inline css of windspeeddirection.php

replace it will give you a triangle (needle)

.thearrow2:after{content:'';position:absolute;left:50%;top:0;
height:15px;width:15px;background-color:none;width: 0;height: 0;border-style: solid;border-width: 0 7.5px 15px 7.5px;
border-color: transparent transparent #9aba2f transparent;
-webkit-transform:translate(-50%,-50%);-moz-transform:translate(-50%,-50%);-o-transform:translate(-50%,-50%);-ms-transform:translate(-50%,-50%);transform:translate(-50%,-50%);-webkit-transition-duration:3s;
-moz-transition-duration:3s;-o-transition-duration:3s;-ms-transition-duration:3s;transition-duration:3s}


earthquakes
settings.php
$notifyDistEQ       = 700; // miles if $windunit is mph otherwise km

About the screen modification, I mean. . . .the template because I wonder if I can change the wind direction pointer and Thank you for the instaruction of earth quake, but is this already pointed to my location ex: in philippine area? because the latest quake is always pointing away from the philippine area?

Title: Request for Rain image color indicator
Post by: pimohdaimaoh on March 03, 2017, 12:56:32 AM
Hello Sir, I just wonder if someone can add a table for image or icon indicator for rain data in home weather station template (similar to thermometer, wind and baro image indicator) , since im living in a trophical country, if theres anyone who can modified the dashboard then add a script as the rain level increases, there will be an image indicator with color to indicate warning based on the rain level, as you can see below my simple illustration on my proposed how will do it.

When the rain level in mm reaches between 7.5 - 15 mm, the color / image icon changes to color YELLOW indicated that the rain is heavy. and when the level reaches between 15 - 30mm of rain, the icon indicator will change its color to ORANGE, and so on when the level reaches more than 30 mm, the indicator image/icon will change to RED color.  indicating its time for EVACUATION  (over flooded conditon).. However a GREEN icon will be the the indication for MODERATE if rain is below 7.5mm/hr


Thank You in advance and I appreciate your response.

Hi Sir Brian,

I read your message and I feel how you get upset for that incident and I understand what you feel but pls. dont misunderstood of what really happened, I already PM'ed you to explain what really happened and I didnt noticed, I never meant to delete the link script since im too busy modifying some texts and fonts on the template but my plan is to mentained the original link of www.weather34.com to get to know who really the creators of the templates are, now at last due to my nervous reaction of getting you upset, I found the deleted script part which I accidentally delete the script line. You can see the screenshots below of my proof that all of these templates I uploaded for my weather page are credited to all of your hardwork. I Apologize for what happened and you dont have to worry now because all are set and restored correctly, the weather34.com on the main template right side of the page and the links that are accidentally deleted. Thank You for your understanding.

Im sure Brian will understand. It can happen and the important thing is you actually did it by mistake and were willing to change it. Ive had the same experience with several users of my template too, placing their own copyright and deleting all original credits and very often, when asked about it, they never got back to me. So in this case Im sure he will be ok with it.
Title: Re: improving the the WS1001 (clones) screen layout
Post by: pimohdaimaoh on March 03, 2017, 08:28:04 PM
Thank you for point that out sir. I did a mistake without noticing it,  if you look at the template, the deleted line is small and below the corner of the main template and also, the text script in his templates are scrambled so Im having a hard time to trace and edit some text for some change and without noticing it, I already deleted some lines that supposed to be stayed there. well I hope he considers it that I never owning all the templates Ive been modified, I carefully putting credits to the real owners or programmers of the script. Because if
I have intentionally to delete the copyrights, well I would  also deleted all of Ken (seratoga templates) credits too? but I never do that because im not that kind of people, Im an artist too but in different ways like animation and drawing, I feel how to be disrespected or stolen arts from. I hope Sir Brian reconsiders it.

Will this work for the screen for the Ambient Weather WS-1200-IP?

It looks identical to the WS1001. The default design of the WS1200 is boring and confusing.

Would love to try this on the WS1200 if it will work?

This worked fine for me on the Ambient 1200 IP. Changed the dates and versions in the main.ini and update.ini. Changed GraphApi=false (in main.ini) to true. Changed DeleteDatabase=true (in update.ini) to false. Replaced the themes folder with new themes. Copied the new themes.ini into the root of "Update EasyWeather" firmware update. Powered down the display and inserted the sdcard with the modified EasyWeather firmware. Powered up the display and the updated screen appeared. Caution: I did lose the database and some other settings in Setup, in spite of changing the DeleteDatabase=true to false.

An excellent improvement.

Thanks Brian.

What could be causing erroneous display the time of sunrise and sunset when upgrading to a new template? Time, latitude, longitude and time zone are set correctly. This can be somehow correct the files? The station is in Poland.

You can ask for advice?

i don't quite understand for the ws1001 console display ,this modification has no effect on sunrise/set values . the values for sunrise/set are determined by your lat lon and time zone settings in the console menu.
this modification is purely about the visual elements redone with the png graphic files.

Brian, on the compass rose is a mistake. Twice you have marked the direction of the west "Z".
The "Z" at the bottom of the compass rose should be marked "Pd"

yes, in Polish South is "poludnie" (which btw. means noon in Czech, in Czech we say "jih" for south)

I totally understand what you mean...

I just received a suggestion yesterday if I could put the text "home" below the house icon in the menu which gets you to the homepage.

Well... why not, for that person it seemed like an easy thing to do, and in fact it is and it works nice - home icon with "home" below it. But things change when you start thinking about the fact this has to be translated. First thing that came to my mind was obviously Czech... and placing "domovská stránka" below the icon certainly didnt look so fantastic, occupying 20% of the whole menu :D

Thanks weatherist34!

just for reference i had this on my hard disk

Lets Do It

1. Download file and unzip to your Windows PC desktop
2. Find on your desktop the folder called Themes you just unzipped
3. Connect your WS1001(clone) to a small USB connector
4. Wait for the Windows PC to find device
5. Open file manager and look for device called NAND
6. Click on NAND and now you should see all the files on your WS1001(clone)
7. Now look for the Themes folder on your WS1001(clone)
8. Now got to your windows desktop and drag(copy) the Themes folder to the WS1001(clone)
9. It will copy over the files and at times prompt you for overwrite
10.Once it is finished now reboot and voila you have a new cleaner smarter display :-)
Remember it is not a firmware upgrade :-)

hello

its been a very long time since i did anything with this . i can not confirm or even guess if it is useable on latest firmware versions for this model and clones.I no longer own one so it is gone by the layside as I am not able to verify or test with later firmware versions.

you can try at your own risk make note 100% your own risk .whilst the download only contains the necessary image files it does not contain firmware or neither do any of the files in the download write to the firmware .all they are for is replacing the existing images on the console .

do not ask me if you brick your console or have any problems it literally is what it was from over a year ago or more..

Post by: mike817 on August 24, 2018, 11:42:39 AM
I updated to the latest firmware first, then i copied the theme files over and increments the dot version and the update date and it worked fine.  I don't think they're very complicated devices. It looks like that theme folder is pulling the data directly from storage so there probably isn't that big of a risk of bricking it.

The damn deleteData=false flag was ignored each time though.

ok well,good to know not much has changed. i should imagine some of the other branded later models have a similar structure.  if your confident in CS6 photoshop you can use the psd layered version to customize better to your liking .. anyway have fun and i recall when i first did it because my wife complained the original console unit display looked industrial not because i was disliking it but sometimes you have to listen ..have a nice weekend..brian

For what it's worth the WS-2000 which has the newest sensor array and includes seemingly the same display as this but in black with I'm sure incompatible firmware does do graphs since the latest updates.
