They changed the weather-api, so flipclock will not show weatherinfos anymore.

Flipclock will have an update in the future, but to be a clock only.
For weather you can use that other tool that will be releases this year.

Has the weather server stopped working? I don't get weather info anymore.

@ fingus

Thanks. E-mail sent.
Comment by: fingus ( 09 Feb 2013, 15:19File version: 53.2

I use SANS-Font. Normally the Font should play no important role here. Please send me more infos about that Problem with Screenshot to my E-Mail-Adress, written in the Flipclock-Requester by pressing Help-Key or "?"-Button.

@ fingus

What font do you use to display the date? There's a problem when you have a localized Workbench; thanks in advance.

Comment by: Sofistisoftware ( 20 Jan 2013, 15:04File version: 53.1
Very nice and useful application! Congratulation good work, it works very well on my Sam460, the previous LimpidClock gave me problems with usb and something else... i hope in a localized version and full compositing support, thanks again
Comment by: fingus ( 26 Nov 2012, 12:09File version: 53.1

Compositing is not fully supported by Hollywood, in future versions maybe.
Comment by: asor12 ( 26 Nov 2012, 03:11File version: 53.1
Cool great release.. how about adding compositing for real transparencies ?
Comment by: toaks ( 25 Nov 2012, 21:38File version: 53.1
awesome app, i am so happy that its working again =)
Comment by: zzd10h ( 25 Nov 2012, 00:30File version: 53.1
Great, I missed your application.
Thank you for FlipClock
Comment by: Phantom ( 24 Nov 2012, 20:39File version: 53.1
Works excellent and much more convenient than before. May I ask the author what font does the app uses? Thanks in advance.

Which weather service do you plan to replace it with? The one Jack uses is wundergroud, but they made the free RSS feed obsolete moving over to a paid model - no-one is gonna pay weather on their desktop!

Strange. It says file isn't executable (although everything is RWED). Any clues?
Comment by: Phantom ( 08 Nov 2011, 14:24File version: 1.0
Ok, thanx mate.
Comment by: whose ( 07 Nov 2011, 23:51File version: 1.0

Use "WBStartup_Flipclock", if you want to start it using WBStartup Prefs. Only "WBStartup_Flipclock", NOT "flipclock". The latter one is not intended for this purpose and restores the Tooltypes. So a "DONOTWAIT" will vanish after flipclock starts.

If you use "WBstartup_Flipclock" with WBStartup Prefs, the DONOTWAIT tooltype should be registered automatically, because its set to the WBStartup_Flipclock icon by default.
Comment by: Phantom ( 07 Nov 2011, 22:46File version: 1.0
There seems to be a problem when you make it to boot via WBStartUp Prefs. Although I've set not to wait till finish I got a requester everytime I boot. Anyone with the same problem?

-- info: only use lowercase chars here!!

Maybe the unit is taken either from the language used (fr should bring km/h) or by the choosen location.
Comment by: Phantom ( 06 Nov 2011, 16:37File version: 1.0
@ Raziel


@ K-L

What's your tooltypes look like then? Because there aren't any tooltypes options for forecast and wind to show in km/h.

Comment by: Raziel ( 06 Nov 2011, 13:37File version: 1.0

me??? never, farenheit will stay if you talking me to fix it :-D

fingus is the author ;-)

There are lots of little bugs.
1) Farenheit cannot be changed in the forecast
2) Wind speed cannot be changed to km/h
3) There neither seem to be any updates to the weather data once the clock has been started nor are there any notifications after the startup one
Comment by: Phantom ( 06 Nov 2011, 12:11File version: 1.0
@ Raziel

Thanks. So it seems that it needs only the city, no country. Hope that you can update the forecast to Celcius too (it's only farenheit).
Comment by: Raziel ( 06 Nov 2011, 06:29File version: 1.0

1) See my first comment...activate the window and keep ESC pressed until it will go away
2) Read the readme...enter your city in LOWERCASE letters (weather_location=your_city)
Comment by: Phantom ( 06 Nov 2011, 01:07File version: 1.0
A few questions if you don't mind.

1. How I can quit it entirely and restart it with the new tooltypes? I pressed Ctrl+C, it quitted but it doesn't restart since then (only after a reboot).

2. How I can find how I will enter my city and country for the weather forecast, any hint?

Thanks in advance.

Very nice but, despite the current temperature being in Celcius, the forcast temperatures are in Fahrenheit. How do I get it ALL in Celcius?
Comment by: jacknife ( 05 Nov 2011, 19:51File version: 1.0
thanks...... :)

Looks nice!
Comment by: K-L ( 05 Nov 2011, 13:30File version: 1.0
Very nice tool and very useful. But it doesn't seem to update itself (it's raining where I live and it still says "Clear" but Wet says "raining").

And I do not get any notification while it's activated in the ToolTypes. See it live : http://amiga-ng.org/resources/DiamClockMplayer.jpg :-)
Comment by: hotrod ( 05 Nov 2011, 13:30File version: 1.0
Thanks! One issue solved :) . Now I whonder why it never gets any data :( .
Comment by: fingus ( 05 Nov 2011, 11:28File version: 1.0

You can use it of course WITH COMPOSITING ENABLED!
Comment by: Raziel ( 05 Nov 2011, 10:27File version: 1.0
This could become my new clock...if you got my mail ;-)

The timer polling is set to a greater value to save resources, this leads to a sluggish input read.
You can close the window by activating it and keep ESC pressed, it will eventually go away :-)
Comment by: hotrod ( 05 Nov 2011, 10:21File version: 1.0
Nice looking app! Has been thinking that it would be nice to have something like this and here it is :-) .

Two questions. First of all I can't make it get temperature. For location I've tried "stockholm" and "bromma" without the " marks.

Second issue is that if I quit it with Exchange I can't start it again, only with a reboot(?).

That looks scarily familiar, hmm, lets' check my HTC Desire .. ;)

Nice polished look. I like it a lot. Many thanks!
