I did. I just mapped the Weather widget with SkinShortcuts and attached viewtype (I used both default "Libraries" and "PVR") and works. Have you issues with this ?

It's bloc 3 default. Weather art is a set of arts in the media folder (texture.xbt now) named with numbers (I think each number matches to a Weather condition). Not sure I made it correctly BTW ... There's not many docs about that.

I don't pack, KODI does it when reaching the repo.

ohh i get it , that was the way i set it up cause the multiimage wasnt working, i set bloc 3 as the background but its just a single static image, i just though if you set the multiimage background and choose the conditional weather folder it will grab the weather code # and cycle the image from the corresponding folder, i though the background setting have a condinional for in case it was weather

HI, can some explain what exactly he did.

In KOver Designer by weather 1 choose the library design, at that moment i see some differtent background and the days, but no temperatures or other information.
What weather widget do you use the default weathermap or weathermap extended

search for the viewtype you select for weather use under edit home menu then in Kover designer search that viewtype and select for Ex. card in Bloc1 (setting E)
