Now Playing: SLIM by Demonessyume Now Playing: SLIM by Demonessyume
A very simple Rainmeter skin, inspired by hora-horas [link] work on the popular bb_bar and sys_combo.

This skin combines the track information (title - artist - duration) within one line, and is much much wider than bb_bar since it does not include any system meters. This way you can view the FULL title of the song, and ideally the artist. If the information is too long, the clipstring will drop the duration/time off and add "...". In addition, the background.png is coded into the same .ini directly, so in order to remove it you will need to "comment" it out. It also does NOT extend the full length of your desktop, just the size of the skin itself.

This is something I did intentionally, as I found myself often tabbed into games full screen and wanted to know what was playing. Keep in mind that the Date/Time is something I also added to prevent any clipping, and because I find it easier to adjust colors and view my local time in game this way.

Default, the height is 17px so again it is larger than most super slim/minimal bblean/wm desktops may allow for. However, the way the .ini is formated should make it VERY easy for anyone to edit and change font, size, and color. The background.png is something you will have to edit yourself, however. The background.png color is defaulted to #1b1b1b, font is Consolas 9pt.
