MSI Afterburner for Gnometer by dcrutgers MSI Afterburner for Gnometer by dcrutgers
Updated to v1.1
* Now works with Gnometer v1.3
* Added the latest version of the MSI Afterburner plugin (fixes multiple GPU issue described below).
* Now shows FPS in the title.
* Automatically detects and displays the name of your GPU (new feature in latest MSI Afterburner plugin). If your card name is not displayed, try upgrading Afterburner to version 2.1.

This skin will monitor your graphics card and display all critical information about status and overclocking. If your not familiar with Afterburner, I suggest your visit [link] for more information.

What you need:

* Latest version of Gnometer installed [link]

* MSI Afterburner installed on your computer and running while skin is loaded.

* Copy the entire MSI Afterburner folder from my .zip file to the Skins\Gnometer\ directory.

* Copy the appropriate MSIAfterburner.dll from the plugins folder in my .zip file to your C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Plugins directory. Restart Rainmeter

* A video card that is supported by afterburner

I recommend adjusting some of the min/max values to reflect your video card clocks.

I've only tested this with a single GPU, however as per the developer of the afterburner plugin a few changes are required for this to work with multiple GPUs. If you have any issues getting this to work, please have a look at this forum [link]

I have to give major credit to poiru for developing Gnometer and stangowner for the afterbuner plugin.

Enjoy!

Is there a way to change this skin's width to 300 (like other Gnometer skins)?

Can I somehow change the name of the card at the top. For me it says ''AMD Radeon R9 200 series''. But would like it to say: ASUS R9 280X DirectCU II TOP 3 GB

Hi there. Thank you for such a handy skin. Unfortunately I'm having a problem getting it to display the name of my card. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Glad you like it, are you sure you copied over the latest DLL plugin from the download and restarted rainmeter?

mistabyggs Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011
Yup, followed the instructions to a Tee. But I do have to ask, was I supposed to copy and paste the .dll in the actual rainmeter folder (Program File/Rainmeter/Plugins)... or was I supposed to paste it in the Plugins in folder for Gnometer. Just a note, all the other information about my card is showing, such as temps, fan speed etc...

:icondcrutgers:
dcrutgers Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011
It should copied into the (Program File/Rainmeter/Plugins)directory. The plugin was written by somebody else, so unfortunately I can't troubleshoot it. However, I would take a look at the following link and maybe post your issue.

Also, let me know if you think of any feature requests for the skin.

Thanks!

Actually it's perfect the way it as, as far are what it shows. Sometimes people have a tendency of putting too much on a skin and makes it look...tacky.

Forgot to add that the only thing that shows for the name of my card is "0".

Not sure what version of Afterburner you're using, but if it helps, I'm using version 2.1.0 beta 5. You may need to upgrade. From the forum I mentioned stangowner mentions the following:

This plug-in for Rainmeter has been updated to take advantage of the changes in MSI Afterburner 2.1. It is backwards compatible with 1.5 - 2.0 as well.

I'm using the version that you download from the MSI AB website. I believe it's 2.0. Would you have a link for the 2.1.0 beta

Looks like 2.1 beta 6 is available now. Give this one a try:

I do have a request tho lol. I've looked at other skins for the system properties, like the cpu and stuff. I like the one that comes with gnometer, but I also would like it to display the core temps as well. Is it feasible to make something like this, using the gnometer template?

Hi dcrutgers. I just updated the plug-in for some new capabilites.
[link]

I also changed the demo skin so it uses GPU and SourceId for everything except Framerate. This way it will still work for users with more than one card instead of having this happen: [link]

Just figured I'd let you know so you can include in your skin if you want.

The top dark background behind the icon is not showing up for me, and the background behind the stats don't go all the way to bottom and seems dark like your background behind the top Icon in your screenshot..

not working for me.. I'm running MSI Afterburner 2.0 beta 6.. Running Windows 7 64bit... Copied the 64bit dll to the plugin dir and renamed it MSIAfterburner.dll
Just loads the Afterburner icon and all text is ontop of each other... I do see GTX 460 but I'm running an ATI 5870

Hmm, so strange.. Works perfectly for me. Do you have the latest version of the Gnometer skin installed? [link] You need to have the Gnometer skin installed and you have to copy the entire MSI Afterburner folder from the .zip file to the Skins\Gnometer\ directory.

These are requirements because this skin is specifically developed to use with Gnometer and requires it's skin variables and styles etc.. That must be it. :)

Please let me know as soon as you can.

Do you have afterburner running while the skin is loaded? Afterburner will have to be open for the skin to work. Did you copy the correct .dll to your plugins directory?

Thanks
