Changing Weather icons
#1
Well, I have to say, that this Skin hat a great design. Beautiful, modern, exotic layers, but use the old and ugly weather icons.

I was wondering, if , or How I can change the default weather icons? They´re animated and I don´t want such a thing, I already made my own weather icons(static) and want to put it on this skin. Can anybody say me How?Angry

I would imagine that you just need to find the animated icons for the weather, and then just replace them with your images.

I might be wrong, but I would try that first, making sure you back up the original icons.

I don´t know why, but, for a simple animated weather icon, exist around 15 icon.
Are you trying to say, that I could delete all icons and reemplaze it with a unic Icon?

The existing textures can be found in XBMC\skin\Xperience\media\animations\weather.
I would imagine you would just rename each of your single images to that of the first image in each of those folders then delete the rest, if you understand what i mean.
This should work ok, but do make sure you back up the existing folder in case it screws upNod
