    I think what cody is working on should help you there. Cody, are you going to rotate the Xcast results with other stuff in your project?

    Edit: looks like Cody is making the results available via zbop's new today plugin so that should work fine on the 750 also.

    yes, and the new plugin will not matter what phone or carrier you have.

    all I need is an old working version of xcast before the ini

    Is this correct? I understand if there's an intermediary between the upcoming homescreen plugin and other scripts, but why can't we work on a method for our existing versions (which are a bit more advanced than the original) to talk to it?

    For example, we have a a registry key
    HKCU\Soft\CodyIntermediary
    where within
    XCast = "80 (45/78) Rain @9pm"
    SportsCenter = "Atl @ Was 3-1 Bot 9"

    I don't follow that discussion so I apologize in advance for not being up-to-date on the topic!

    We could, but I don't think anyone has stepped up to the challenge yet. :-/

    latest revision is on page 11 i think. i'll update the original post soon with the forcecast app front and center.

    for now, i think you just download the zip, extract, modify the ini with your platform and zip code and it' should be good.

    edit: does not require the original xcast

    yes i was, i did get around not having to use the older version. new version was good with the ini. i was trying to write the xcast into the alert control.mscr of treo alert like we did cDate. i got it to run fine as a external script that was just edited to write to a different reg area for the display. a simple killscript would stop it when a user didn't want to use it. i guess sling just thought it was to much for this version. i'm sure he would have liked to seen it all there.

    i think with all the stuff (xcast, scottys sports, treo alert, cdate, ect, ect) we/I need to figure something out. i'm not finished yet... just a lack of time.

    Hi,

    I am trying to get Xcast to do the weather on the carrier line. I have a VZW 700WX & I cant figure out how to make that functionality work.

    I edited all three INI files, but I keep getting error messages & the carrier line stays as is.

    I did download Treo Alert (which is where I fell in love with Xcast). The precip feature is all I ever care about ever when dealing with the weather!

    THanks,
    Rich

    Rich - what are the error messages? I wouldn't put it past Verizon do sumptin(else) underhanded.

    Did you uncomment the following line in xcast.ini:
    #WMPlatformModel = "700wx"

    Did you delete or comment the "700w" line?

    Anyone else out there with a 700wx tried the install "as is" in post #1?

    JDC,

    Let me start by saying, this works fine with the Treo Alert version. My goals are to replace the carrier line only (no popups, etc).

    I edited all my ini files as follows:

    [Settings]
    MyBrowserApp = "\Windows\iexplore.exe"
    MyBrowserAppWin = "Internet Explorer"
    MyTextEditorApp = "\Storage Card\Program Files\Tillanosoft\PocketNotepad\pnotepad.exe"
    PCBrowserApp = "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
    #PCBrowserApp = "c:\IE.lnk"
    PCTextEditorApp = "C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe"
    # --------------------------------
    [ZipList]
    # Put "Home" or Default location in array slot "1"
    MyFavZipLoc[1] = "[10598] Yorktown Heights, NY"
    MyFavZip[1] = "10598"
    # --------------------------------
    [CityList]
    # Put "Home" or Default location in array slot "1"
    MyFavCity[1] = "Yorktown Heights, NY"
    MyFavCityCode[1] = "USNY1632"




    [Settings]
    XcastSoundsDir = "\Storage Card\XcastSupport"
    WMPlatform = "Treo"
    # --------------------------------
    WMPlatformModel = "700wx"
    #WMPlatformModel = "700wx"

    # This section is for resetting
    # Carrier Status to default values

    #
    #
    [Parameters]
    #
    # The Parameters section is for resetting
    # default Xcast Values. These parameters

    XcastSounds = "off"
    #XcastSounds = "off"
    #XcastSounds = "vibrate"

    LocationCode = "10598"

    XcastSounds = "on"

    Nice zinger, slinger.

    Rich -- what error messages?

    I noticed that the .wav files were not included in the post 1 .zip. Are your error messages sound related?

    - JDC
  18. #238  
    JDC - When I click on Xcast itself, nothing happens at all. If I click it a second time I get a message asking if I want to cancel the old script.

    If I got into Theforcecast & choose Xcast Now - nothing happens.

    It doesnt seem to be putting any data at all into the carrier line.

    On a side note the Xcast that was integrated into Treo Alert, worked very well with no INI editing. Just popped in my zip & off I went.

    If I hit the "again.mscr" I get a strange error (it created itself in the directory).

    Here is a cap of the error.

    it seems whatever I do, the Carrier line doesnt change.

    I think you have to upgrade the version of Mortscript you're using, it seems to me 'bigmessage' is not supported on that one.
