Chromo skin - weather not being downloaded - fix 5 Years, 5 Months ago  
Hello to all.

I am new to the forum, and I hope that this post is placed in the right part of the forum.

I just thought that I would post a possible solution for others who experience trouble with the Chromo-skin, after updating to Rainlendar v. 2.10 b120 on Windows XP. I had trouble with this myself but managed to locate why.

In my case it demanded a small change in the weather.lua file that is part of the skin, before I could access the msn weather rss again

- You need to unpack the skin-file, and modify the weather.lua file
- line# 92 replace the function "string.gfind" with "string.gmatch"
- Do the same for line 139
- Repack the skin and drop it on the Calendar to install it
- restart the Calendar

This did the trick for me, and the weather forecast loaded immediately

I hope this saves others some time
Best regards
Fresh Boarder
