I had created a variable in the config file that I use for the overlay and email notifications - much more friendlier....
So just upgraded to v42... I have not even used my config variable - but by just changing the date format... (I hate software that assumes a month day format where majority of the world is not only metric, but also has different date formats - so I prefer to spell it out in somewhat a better fashion!)
Gives me a better date format - SkyWeather 08-Aug-2019 15:13:23 Wind Speed: 3.6KPH Wind Gust: 0.0KPH Temp: 13.7 C
But it does not get placed on the picture at all.... Effectively I have only really added 1 character to the length - month is moved from 2 chars to 3 chars to spell it out in case your not in North America !!!!
So something is strange...
Its 84 characters for my text - Would not have thought it was a magic number, and the text size is not making it exceed the size of the pixels in the image.... I am going to take a guess that the display dies if its too long ? Number of Characters ? WTF ?
SO I dropped a few characters of SkyWeather to just Sky and it still is not working...
Don't know what I did wrong yesterday... but today, it worked all AOK....
Of course - lots of modifications..... Title / Name comes from my config file.... Modified Util to show lowercase instead of uppercase kph and of course a few other nit bits added.... like deciding I don't need to see seconds anymore on the time for this!
Just in case someone also wants to modify / hack things... here is my modification to SkyCamera.py
# set up units
val = util.returnWindSpeed(state.ScurrentWindSpeed)
Have you looked at the daily time lapse also? Since this last set of changes the image on mine randomly brightens substantially, almost looks like lightning even though there was no storm activity though the latter part of the day.
Curious to know if it is just something on mine, or if these changes introduced some other bug beyond the temperature reporting.
