No wind direction pointer tvOS
« on: September 09, 2017, 02:01:10 AM »
Have WeatherCat installed on a couple of ATV 4’s. None are showing the wind direction pointer in gauge view. Any ideas?

Welcome to the WC Forum Crawdad62. I can't help you on this, but the Grand Poobah, who developed the app just left on a holiday to Italy. He said he would monitor the forum when he gets access to the web so be patient until he surfaces. WeatherCat apps can't compete with a trip to Florence.

Thanks for pointing that out (couldn't resist). I confirmed it on my WeatherCatTV 1.3 installation as well.

I suspect it was caused by a tvOS update that nullified my pointer-drawing code. I will look into it.

The cause of the missing pointer is not an iOS update. It is I. I am embarrassed to say that I did not include the pointer artwork in the build. I don't how many times I looked at the wind direction gauge and saw a pointer that wasn't there. It's an easy fix, but I also checked WeatherCatTV using the simulator for the new Apple TV 4K. Glad I did. The layout for the additional pixels needs fixing. I will have a new update to WeatherCatTV in the Apple Store as soon as I can get my hands on a real Apple TV 4K to test the changes. In the meantime, if you get an Apple TV 4K before I do and notice that the screen for WeatherCatTV is jumbled, don't despair. The update will fix that.

The wind direction gauge pointer is back. The WeatherCatTV 1.4 update is available from the Apple TV App Store.

Thanks! Sorry I hadn't gotten back to you sooner. I sort of forgot about it and since WeatherCat had an update it jogged my memory about this. Wind direction indicator is on-point! cmu:-)
