Thanks coojoe, did not see this before - too many subscriptions i guess. Thanks +rep

After looking into more the other day i realized i already had those fonts n my skin - looked different to me as posted on site. I also elected to strip my ini files of those images, i personally dont want them on my screen I'm a minimalist.

Thanks again

You will need an Icon set in your 10-foot HUD folder in ".png" format and to change the location to your current location after that refresh the skin and your set.

Weather Icon sets can be found here from Accuweather AccuWeather.com() Content For Your Site or you can use your own.
Thank you so much for that, but can someone tell me what part of this code I need to replace to change fahreinheit to celcius? Thanks.
