Could somebody post the transparent BBC weather icons?
Much appreciated  :)

Managed to alter the transparent colour on my skin
Works pretty well except for a slight grey outline

I think the background color is "153,153,204".

Thanks for the props dhpss, and to srs for including them in the default skin.  Never thought I'd see the "smoke" icon come up, but all of LA is now covered in a thick blanket of it from the fires...some friends of mine had to be evacuated out of Simi Valley...  :(

Weather.com icon for code 39
« Reply #17 on: October 28, 2003, 08:08:08 AM »
I wanted to share my modified weather.com icon for code 39 (AM / PM showers) which is more like the one on the website. I prefer it to the one we previously had, which looks just like all-day showers.

Hello Astro, thanks for those great weathericons but I have one question.
When the weather code is: showers, I see the icon of windy, so I looked on the website of intellicast, and I see that showers will result in an icon with a cloud an some rain. But on my screen, it shows the icon of Windy. Is this normal?
Maybe it's normal but it's just a question :wink:

How to make the background transparent

Hi

How do I make the background transparent for the BBC Icons - the ones posted that are *.bmp.

Is this possible with *.bmp files or do they need to be *.png files. Oo this skinning is addictive!

The easiest way is to change this line in your skin:
color,transparent,255_0_255

This is usually somewher near the top of the skin. If you change the bolded area to this I think it will work:

color,transparent,153_153_204

You can use .bmp or .png. It is up to you. The only difference is that .png is a smaller file size. Just make sure that in your skin you tell the skin what file type to use. Example:

options,weathericondir,Weather Icons\Washington Post,png
Toshiba E800 WM2003 SE
Ipaq 3955 WM2003, SD and CF,Pocket Informant
Dell Axim X5 PPC2002 SD and CF (Wife's)
