hey I have a quick question, is there anyway you could make the squares open programs on your computer. like just basic squares that you can name what you want and be able to open programs in one click.

Unfortunately this is not cooperating with foobar :(

I go into the Edit Skin and change the player name to foobar2000 but it doesn't work.
DeusPai Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2014
ok I found a way. since nowplaying.dll wont recognize foobar, I installed the CAD plugin into foobar. you can get it here, and then just edit the settings and change into PlayerName=CAD
it should work.
DeusPai Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2014
I'm having exactly the same problem. changed to PlayerName=foobar2000 but it doesnt give any signs of life. strangely, it used to work.

Great stuff! My favourite RM skin so far. Unfortunately though, it seems the weather widget no longer works properly. I entered my code, but the temperature disappeared and nothing happened. :( Is anyone else having this problem or am I just being a typical amateur?

Can someone give me some instructions on how to input my username and password for Gmail into the .ini so I can see unread notifications?
wallykovacs Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2014  Student Interface Designer
Two problems: the RSS button you reference, to find my code for weather, I don't know where it is. Can't find it on yahoo weather.
Also, is there a way I can set the "now playing" to not auto-hide? I checked all the hide settings in the txt file to 0 but that didn't fix it.
xilyflob Featured By Owner May 2, 2014
I found the answer here:…
Scroll down to the "Note" part of "Yahoo-Weather" it seems to talk about what it looks like now.

Love this! I'm just having a tiny problem with the Weather strip. I'm using the one with a built-in divider on the bottom.

The words describing the weather ("LIGHT RAIN" in my example) are not lining up on the same horizontal line as the numerical temperature:

Do you know how I can make mine line up properly like yours does? Thanks!

gus2427 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2014
Did you ever find a solution for this? It's just driving me insane that they won't line up. 
JoeDoubleclick Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2014
I did, but I can't remember what I did!

I went to the Rainmeter main forums, and the solution I got was to turn off Use Direct2D Rendering in the right-click menu. That wasn't a satisfactory solution, since this seemed to have the effect of disabling anti-aliasing (particularly awful on the ultra-thin text).

I think I just messed around with numbers after this until it worked. I also changed the text size because I wanted the weather conditions to display in full without getting truncated with "...". I'm completely clueless about scripting, but I did learn that "r" in RM means "relative to the previous meter", so I think I just experimented until I got something that worked. I'll send you a note with a copy of my config for Weather_white_div-top.

That is an awesome addition to my desktop, but I still have a problem with this. I can't configure the app to visualize my HDD space, it cannot find the right letter of my only partition on the Hard Drive and shows "X:" instead. Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this?
Foxyeyes2012 Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Did you ever get a solution to this?  I'm having the same issue and would also like to change the other two hard drive letters I have as well.  I have three things that I would like listed.

Open your Rainmeter folder (Documents\Rainmeter\Skins)
Open the 'Encoded' folder
Open the 'Variables' folder

Open the file ''
Change the
variables as you like

How do I get the weather to sync up with my location?
emithith Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
if it's like any other weather plugin, you need to grab your city's code from
e.g. for me it's CAXX0255. I got that from the url. "…"
of course, there should be a place to input this. If not, edit the skin. Don't be afraid.
Fishbertus Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2013  Professional Interface Designer
There should be something telling you how in the skin, if not, take a look at Enigma, it tells you how to set the weather.

Practically there should be a website where you put your city and country and then it will give you a code.
Fishbertus Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2013  Professional Interface Designer
Hey! Looks like this skin is very successful. 

Do you mind making one that's kinda like a metro-style, and by that I mean the boxes being solid and not just outlines?

Ok! I'm a total Noob when it comes to Rainmeter skins and themes. I run a windows7 and all my themes are messed up. Would anyone know why am I seeing the date and time in the following format.
8:40PM (The word "PM" overlaps ":40" - Wrong formatting).
Plus, the font and the color also not the correct ones. A black colored font shows up (no matter what skin color you apply).

Any help on this would be appreciated as I really really wanna get this working.

This is incredible and I have been using it for a while. I can't wait to see what your next installment is.

Would it be difficult to say double or triple the size of these meters? They're down right tiny on my 2560 x 1440 resolution. Though they look great on my bro's comp, which is why I want them :)
