It works now, I changed it to <speedunit>beaufort</speedunit>

Thanks Ronie!
@ronie

I have updated the weather wiki page to reflect all the addon current capabilities and other weather related options.

However on the weather underground advanced options thers a few things I dont know exactly how they work.

http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Wea...ed_options

Code:
Location x,y,z display name
    Displays the friendly name for the Location you choose.
Location x,y,z id
    This is the weather underground city location data ?

Map zoom level
    Select the Maps & Alerts zoom level for the map with the slider limits are 0 to ?
Animated map
    When enabled the map you see in Maps & Alert view should be animated ?
Weekend
    Define when the weekend starts for you
Enable logging
    Enables logging for the Addon ?

In particular the parts marked with ?

If you could clarify those and in particular the Maps & Alerts animation setting, I have it set and its doesnt animate so idk if this is limited or if its dependant on something.

This is mainly why I updated the page so as to clarify exactly what does what and how.

TIA

@AussieFries

You can change the units but has you have it, the scale for Beaufort is IIRC from 0 to 12 and that encompasses different wind speeds for each level.

When you change the kmh to Beufort, that doesn't mean exactly that the measurement changes, so your report will be inaccurate most likely.

So what your getting is data for kmh which does not equal the Beaufort scale at all.
idk if XBMC actually understands the scales it probably only knows about mph and kmh and if anyone that actually knows the Beufort scale is looking it will probably be alarmed to see the wind is going to be potential hurricane when its actually mild.

very nice work uNi !

there's an addon wiki page as well, so you can get the info there:
http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Add...nderground

if anything is still unclear, just ask :-)

i have never read such complete and utter nonsense as this ;-p

of course the weather addon has built-in code to handle all conversion between the different metrics.
The addon info will suffice to update the page in fact found a couple of errors in the addon page you linked.. :p

Edit updated/corrected both pages now the wether wiki page and the addon page overall now its all looking ++++ and complete for a change. Big Grin

As for the Beufort conversion, sit corrected Big Grin, thx.

Goes to show assuming is totally wrong in all cases.

i can't reproduce it.
also can't think of a single reason why it would work with 1.0.4 and not 1.06
as no relevant changes were made between those apart from some updated language files.

only version up to 1.0.1 would have this bug (due to the special char in the username)...

so... i'm gonna need a Debug Log:
- settings > system > debugging > enable debug logging
- settings > weather > - settings > advanced > enable logging
- restart xbmc
- wait for the error to pop up and pastebin your logfile
This could be a bad .zip install because you get that error if the file is missing
Try installing this one again

sure, i only need a Debug Log from you.

follow these steps to make one:
- settings > system > debugging > enable debug logging
- settings > weather > - settings > advanced > enable logging (this may not be available in eden, so skip this one if missing)
- restart xbmc
- search for a weather location

upload your logfile to xbmclogs.com and post the url here.
