Glad you got it worked out!

Lighthouse too big for wallpaper when set to 125%, too small at 100.

Nevermind, Reloaded the skin and it somehow fixed itself to correct scale

Hey FetidCreeper...I've not experienced that. Have you tried to set the password from the variables file? You can go to wherever your skins are stored, open the StandardDesk folder, navigate to StandardSkin folder and open, open the file, and manually enter the GMail information. Save the file, and then exit rainmeter (right click on toolbar icon and exit). Restart your computer. Hopefully that will reset things and all will work.

Hey there. Not sure if you're still around, but I'm having issues with the gmail part. I've <set> my stuff with the lighthouse, but it won't stay set. Will some special characters in password field disable the script from working?

The Wallpaper is contained in the Rainmeter Skin Folder - Subfolder - resources.  Path should be something like C:\Users\YourName\My Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\StandardDesk\resources\Wallpapers, assuming you have a typical install of Rainmeter on your system.

It seems there is no longer such thing as " resources\Wallpaper Folder " or even the mentioned wallpaper. That is a pitty.

I posted a reply to your comment.  The Wallpapers are located in the "resources" folder of the skin.
