Rainmeter skins, version 1.0

These are simple roundline and string skins - sort of a combination of my older Circuitous and Simplicity Circles skins. The design doesn't lend itself to things like feed readers and calendars, but there are a lot more skins in the suite than are shown in the preview:

Included skins:

- Battery monitor
- Hard drive space (x3)
- Disk activity (using PerfMon.dll)
- RAM space
- SWAP space
- Upload traffic
- Download traffic
- Wifi monitor
- Media player control using NowPlaying.dll
- CPU (average load and top process)
- CPU cores (x4) (core load and frequency)
- Recycle Bin (size, item count, auto-empty)
- CPU temperature (either CoreTemp or SpeedFan)
- Time and Date
- Volume control
- Weather (using Yahoo! Weather)
- vertical or horizontal background bar
[screenshot showing all the skins included in the suite]

Skin settings can be easily changed using the Config.ini skin


Bernd Montag - Sansation font
Yahoo! Weather - weather data
smurfier - Lua wizard
Kaelri - @include-fu
jsmorley - RegExp guru
gronostajo - SimplyRound skin
lalibi - Etheldrede Pantone
amc242 - beta tester
ionstorm01 - beta tester

More info/Help me/How to:

Try the ReadMe file first. You can open it from the Config.ini skin, and it is located at right in the skin root folder.
I also am maintaining a "FAQ" journal entry for these skins, for answers that I expect to repeat a lot or for semi-complicated things that need a long answer.
If the ReadMe and FAQ don't cover it, then fire away in the comments - I'll answer any question I can.

Many thanks everyone who helped beta test these skins, and I hope you all enjoy the final product. As usual, bug reports, feature suggestions, and constructive criticism are all greatly appreciated.

Hyrax out. :wave:

Hi, Is it possible to make the temperature/speedfan pie graph measure from a certain range rather than just a percent of max? such as from 25-70 degrees? etc?
FlyingHyrax Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014
Sure!  You just need to edit the formula in the [mPercent] section of SpeedFan.ini; as long as that formula returns a value between 0.0 and 1.0 the pie graph will scale accordingly.  So for example you could do something like 'Formula=(mTemp-25)/(75-25)' to get a percent in that range.  (Though, I'm not totally sure what would happen if/when the temp went below 25...)

I want to delete the pie charts so I delete this line:


But when I delete that from the weather skin, the subtext disappears too.  Is there any way to keep the subtext but get rid of the the pie chart?  That method works with other skins.

Unfortunately I can't replicate the problem you are having; if I delete that line in the weather skin, I get this:

If you delete that line and:

MeterStyle=roundlineCommon | pieCommon

the  subtext disappears with the chart

Solved it!  Sorry it took me so long to get around to this; haven't had much spare time and it took me a while to figure it out.  It's simple though. 
TL;DR - add DynamicWindowsSize=1 to the [Rainmeter] section in the weather skin.

The problem is that there is a delay between the skin loading and when WebParser retrieves the subtext, so the subtext ends up being positioned outside the bounds of the skin window.  DynamicWindowSize solves the problem by forcing Rainmeter to recalculate the skin window size and include the new string meter content.

Aha!  I see, you're quite right, it definitely does.  And... I have no idea why.  I can't see a single relevant difference between that skin and the others; it should work exactly the same.  I'll have to take another look and get back to you.
