Taking a shot here but are you sure you have the hurricane data? I assume that it is the "hur.txt" file in lines 3 and 4 above. At what point did you download it in the script and where did you obtain the data? Luck!

here is my last script with data from NOAA
example for NANGKA
download,[url]http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/raw/wt/wtpq20.rjtd..txt,c:\hur.txt[/url]
ingest,c:\hur.txt
load,c:\progra~1\digita~1\NANGKA.dmf
hurricane
#HURRMODEL, 2
stamp
export,c:\NANGKA.gif

Ascii data are in "hur.txt"
i think problem comes from "hurricane" command script
Does it recognize data position in hur.txt file?

thaks

After playing for the last several hours I believe that from comments in the forums that the NHC has changed the format of the text messages that is incompatible, at this time, with DA. Tim will have to rewrite the decoding format to utilize the newer format.

The current bulletins WILL plot in 1.22 still. It must be a 2.0x version problem.
(I don't think they changed the format enough to cause a problem)
