You'll just need to edit the [sString] section in the Volume.ini file a bit.  In [sString] there's a line that reads "FontColor=#color#"; this makes the skin use the text color defined in the shared settings file that all the Faenzometer skins use.  You can just change that line to "FontColor=[someColorCode]",  like

FontColor=200,80,80,255

or

FontColor=FF000

(The manual has a nice section on color options: docs.rainmeter.net/manual/skin… )

Then just save the file and refresh the skin.  This will change the text color for just the volume skin, and if you specify a text color for the rest of the skins through the home.ini/settings skin, it won't apply to the volume skin unless you change that line back to "FontColor=#color#"

The only reason I said out of range was that next to the value 4 it said range 0.0-1.0 which i suppose doesnt relate directly. Adding DynamicWindowSize=1 to the file did the trick!!! thanks

Ah, gotcha. :) No, they don't relate quite like you'd think.
Well, glad the DynamicWindowSize fixed it for you. I'm not sure why it needed it, but I might add it in the next release of these skins so it's there by default.
Thanks for the feedback and enjoy the skins!

It would seem that mIconcalc is out of range for wifi as well but it shows up

Nice skins, I too cant get the batteries to show. I checked log info and it reads mPercent, mAC, and mIconcalc are 84, 0 and 4 ...4 is out of range it would seem

FlyingHyrax Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2012
Interesting... b/c I can confirm for you that 4 is not out of range. :) With the measures returning those values, the skin should be displaying this image: "(your skins folder)\Faenzometer\Battery\0\4.png" (assuming that the Battery.ini skin file is where the .rmskin put it). There must be something else going on here. First, is the folder structure intact? Is the log throwing any error messages? Also, you can try adding the line "DynamicWindowSize=1" under the [Rainmeter] section of the skin file and/or "DynamicVariables=1" under the [Icon] meter section.

So, what do I have to do to make it show I have an unread email?

Enter your Gmail username and password in "(skins folder)/Faenzometer/settings.txt", save the file, and refresh the skin. As indicated in the ReadMe ("(skin folder)/Faenzometer/ReadMe.rtf"), if your username/password contains non-alphanumeric characters, you'll probably need to encode it so that it is URL friendly and use the encoded version in the settings file.

Hi HoaxCap,
If your username or password contains non-alphanumeric characters, you'll need to </a href="[link]">encode them so that they are URL friendly. You might also check "\Skins\Faenzometer\Settings.txt" to make sure the home skin is setting the variables correctly - if you'd like you can skip the home skin entirely and just enter your information in that file. (As always be sure to save any changes you've made and refresh your skins.)

Hey, i was wondering how i could change the mouse over battery percentage to actual text next to the battery (preferably on the left side) thanks. I love the silver design and have been endlessly searching for sexy ways to get rid of my taskbar.

Hi seandamiller,
Sorry for the late reply.
It is definitely possible to do this (thought, admittedly, the left side is a little harder than the right). But unfortunately I have been very busy with schoolwork recently and will have to get back to this after exams. In a few weeks, I will have time to write up a little "how-to" for you. I'll post it as a Journal entry here on DevArt.
Thanks for your patience

How to show volume percentage next to the speaker icon?
Reply
:iconflyinghyrax:
FlyingHyrax Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2012
Hi Rdsa,
Try adding this to the end of Volume.ini:

[String]
Meter=STRING
MeasureName=mVolume2
FontFace=Arial
FontSize=18
FontColor=255,255,255,200
AntiAlias=1
SolidColor=0,0,0,1
X=R
Y=22r
W=60
H=28
Text="%1"

You will need to adjust a few things... you can change the FontFace to the font of your choice, as well as the FontColor. Depending on how big you make the icon and how large you want your text to be, you'll have to play around with the FontSize, Y, W, and H. (When you are adjusting the W and H, you can also change SolidColor to "0,0,0,100" which will add a dark background behind the text to help you see what you're doing.)

I hope this helps, if you have other questions just ask. :)
