Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #1 - Do I Need a JacketThis is a code walkthrough of my "Do I Need a Jacket?" Rainmeter weather skin. The goal of the skin is to replicate doineedajacket.com in a Rainmeter weather skin, including the ability of the end user to set their own temperature thresholds. Here's a screenshot of what this skin looks like:Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #1 - Do I Need a Jacket4 years ago in Personal More Like This

I've been asked to write a tutorial on skinning foobar2000, because many f2k users encounter difficulties modifying skins or simply using them. I'm not an expert on the subject, I've started by installing a few skins and trying to understand how that worked ; I still think it's the best way to get a good handle on it, though a long and sometimes frustrating way. I invite you to try and see by yourself, to keep in mind that errors come all along and to share any advice, question, difficulty or anything you want to say, may you be new or expert. I also recommend to read this good tutorial (though it's partly based on outdated PanelsUI), maybe this less developed one, some of the very useful Hydr

The aim of this skin is to create a binary-coded decimal clock in Rainmeter. To keep this short, we'll just do the hours and minutes (especially since the code for seconds is virtually identical to the minutes anyway).

Ladies and Gentlemen
After almost 18 months, we're finally proud to announce
The Grand release of Omnimo 6.0.
And likely, the last major update
In the lifecycle of this project.
Life's circumstances have a tendency to change rapidly, and indeed, both of us (me and Xyrfo) had experienced rather significant changes which kept us from activelly working on this project. We started it as we were teenagers, but we've grown up and our new lives have begun. Perhaps Omnimo is a tribute to this transition; a hobbyist project that had become more serious with every release. We put our faith in the hope that our efforts were not in vain, and that the long wait had been worth it.
In our previous releases, we hesitated making the changelog out of fear that we won't cover everything that we've worked on. Incidentally, it's also the case for Omnimo 6.0 - we've improved it so much, I
Tips: How to get started with the lit community!Hello everyone! My name is Ricky Alaniz otherwise known as chromeantennae and today, I wanna give you guys a little guide on how I really got started here. How I got my name out there a little bit more and really got the courage to do more around these parts.Tips: How to get started with the lit community!1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
First off, understand that 99% of the literature community here on deviantART will give you just as much in return as you give back to it. It's a natural, human thing. But if you don't give back, you won't receive. That's always the number one thing to remember, but also that we're all here to support each other. Even the most popular of deviants started right where you are. Yes, even the Senior Members and lit CVs were newbies here on this site at one point too. And I know some people are intimidated by Senior Members and literature CVs but these folks are the LAST people to be intimidated by! They're in these positions for the exact opposite reasons-- they're not evil-doers or big bad monsters ready to reject whatever you sugge

my 2 cents on name changeits an awesome option, so thank you DA for thatmy 2 cents on name change3 years ago in Personal More Like This
however, if you have created a reputation on your on-going name, and this is particular important for those of you who are looking forward to create a bigger fan-base, think carefully before you change your name.
i dont speak for everyone, but i know that when i look at comments, my order of reading is this, their icon and then their name
theres been a couple of times that i failed to recognize a friend's comment because they changed their icon, so even the icon is a big deal if you are trying to make a name for yourself, its really like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
now if you change both your name and icon, its a pretty damn risky thing. I know DA sends your watcher a notice about name change, but you also have to know that there are lazy bastards like me who would fail to see those things when i'm distracted.
if you have created a name on the internet as, for example:"emerald-dragon" on DA, and people from
1M Downloads and GithubThis day marks a special milestone of achievement for the developers of Omnimo. A humble project that started almost two years ago reached one million downloads today. Most of you probably don't know that this project was supposed to be much smaller. When I came up with the early concept in the middle of March, I intended it to have approximately 12 panels and several text items.1M Downloads and Github3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Omnimo: The Beginning
Nothing more. However, shortly after the concept, Xyrfo joined the project. And with our combined passion and ambition, as well as with some help from others, we managed to create the biggest Rainmeter suite ever. Xyrfo did some amazing stuff for the project. Things without which it would just remain but a dream of a madman. But he did it! For that, he deserves no less recognition than I do.
And of course, we would like to thank the community for all the support! You guys are awesome! Nothing motivates doing a project better than to see people use and enjoy the product. W
[Featured Skin] Rainsweeper[Featured Skin] Rainsweeper3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rainsweeper by Kaelri is another leap in making Rainmeter do things that no one ever thought possible. Through the use of a clever Lua script Rainsweeper is a clone of the classic Minesweeper game. The ingenious design allows for many features including a GUI options editor, saved high scores, and it has no images or other resource files making it light as it can be.
Thanks for the hard work on another amazing skin!
Scaling Bar, Bitmap, Histogram, Rotator ImagesTo accomplish scaling in meters (Bar, Bitmap, Button, Histogram, Rotator), where W and H are used to set the size of the "meter", not the size of the "image", you can use a "universal" TransformationMatrix formula (Formula is by Xanci):Scaling Bar, Bitmap, Histogram, Rotator Images4 months ago in Personal More Like This
TransformationMatrix = (1 * #Scaler#); 0; 0; (1 * #Scaler#); ((1 - #Scaler#) * [#CURRENTSECTION#: X]); ((1 - #Scaler#) * [#CURRENTSECTION#: Y])
Adding this to your meter, and controlling a new #Scaler# variable, you can easily scale these meters to any desired size.
Here are 3 skins that demonstrate using TransformationMatrix to scale Rotator meters.
One uses modified coding from Rotate an Image Around its Center Tip by Smurfier and JSMorley in the Rainmeter Documentation.
The second one uses a color wheel rotating around the center.
