I'm having the same problem. I'm sure it's something in a .cfg file somewhere, just don't know where.

This didn't start until after I had used the minize (just the temp & sun/moon) feature. Prior to that the Moon was always within the frame.

Everything has been working fine with this Widget, but I see what you are talking about. Tonight the moon looks like it shifted up and to the left about an inch. Does anyone have an answer for this one?

I did some looking around and deleted the "LookingGlass Weather Suite - UltraLite Edition Widget.exe" folder in:
C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Stardock\DesktopX\WidgetCache
When I loaded the Widget again everything was back to normal. Not sure why it changed. Maybe the cache was corrupt. If that does not help then delete the "lookingglass.cfg" in:
C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Stardock\DesktopX and setup it up again.

Thanks a bunch Starman! That did the trick. I tried looking, too, but obviously not in the right place.

All is right with the widget once again.

Comment #25 Monday, May 02, 2005 8:57 PM
Yep, that did the trick. Now let's hope that it does not have the same problem again.

ok, this will never work, but I'm goign to ask for help here. I love this widget! But I've been moved behind a proxy server and now I cannot get the updates on the weather, the radar works, but I can't seem to get the Zip code to change, I've tried delete and reinstall and everything. any suggestions. I even tried to edit the script to have my zip as default, no work there either
Comment #27 Monday, April 17, 2006 6:21 PM
Same with all the versions. I cannot change the zip. Luckly I have one that works great. Not sure if its older or his. It just says weather. Looks like the same but WORKS. Just tested the old one and works super..

Is there a chance you will update your widget/objects to work as there has been a change during this summer? I hope so because these are the BEST weather 'programs' I've seen (ever) for desttopx. Thanks, Battlehorse

I have some problems with zip codes. I write Moscow, Russia or RSXX0063 but there are no chandes in weather and location. All widgets about weather don't understend zip codes, and renew weather only by words MOSCOW, RUSSIA. But this widget automaticaly changes city's name to zip code. What can i do to solve this problem?

Just now came across this widget. Weather reporters are a dime a dozen but I've never seen one that includes a radar screen. Wow! For the gadget freaks this is definitely a must have toy/tool. Unfortunately, it won't start raining around here for another 5 months so I've set the configuration for another part of the country in order to watch the green blotches. This is really one of the sharpest things I have seen in a while.

Who reads the newspaper anymore? We have the Internet. Who listens to the weather report on the advertised clogged radio? We have the Internet. And now there is no longer any reason to tune in for the visuals of dopler radar on the evening news. We have this killer widget! Fantastic job.

Fantastic Widget, Looks so Kewl on my desktop
Is there any chance of adding an "Update Now" button to it, so that for ppl like me that arnt allways connected to the net can update when we actually connect to the net, rather than having to wait the 20 mins ??? , i hope u know what i mean
Keep up the Good Work!.....

Sorry, I have it installed, I just don't have it running full tilt (Desktop X). The widget works just fine - would just like to see what the better quality looks like Perhaps I'll fire up DX and run the object.

Dave, I'd considered it but decided against it. But let me get your opinion on something. If I release a High Quality widget, it would literally be identical to the object version. I'd just export the object version, and the object version is already available. So what's the benefit? Is the export process something that a large proportion of users are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with? If there's sufficient demand along those lines I suppose I could.

However, as I said before, the performance will be better as an object. The HQ version is even bigger, so it will take longer to unzip each time it's run. If used as an object, the files are cached in your theme directory, so there's no startup delay.

What are your thoughts?

are you planning on releasing a hight quality widget? It looks awesome in ultra lite.
Comment #36 Wednesday, October 13, 2004 9:51 PM
Yeah, I tried messing around with it a bit and I found out my problem. It was just as you said. I didn't select all of the objects (just highlighted with my mouse, rather than going to list objects and selecting. Also, I do realize that this has better preformance as an object, but I was getting this for a friend who does not want this displaying all of the time and just wants to open it every now and then to see the weather. LookingGlass is so well done, and better than many other weather programs out there (eg. weatherbug), so I felt this would be the best choice. Thanks for your help!

Thanks very much! I'm glad you like it. You might want to take a look at the versions over in the object library, which offer an animated moon-phase. It's neat to watch.
Comment #38 Wednesday, October 13, 2004 6:28 PM
This is really well done and obviously you've put a great deal of time into it. Thank you.. It is really very nice, clean, and useful. Great Job!

Jeroen, thanks, I'm glad you like it! Both of your questions were addressed in the readme file.
