X2ui Weather 2.2

X2ui Series 2 Official Wallpaper

Hotfix for 2.2 12/29/2018
-Fixed issue where mousing over WANIP was not allowing it to be displayed.

Update 2.2 12/28/2018
-Fixed issue causing Network Config to not detect Wifi. By default, Rainmeter will select the "best" internet connection. If you have Ethernet AND Wifi enabled and Ethernet provides the superior connection, X2ui WILL default to Ethernet.
-Added SSID measure and meter that will display your SSID.
-Added Measure/Meter  that will measure and display your signal strength.
-Fixed issue where a LAN and/or Internet Status of "Disconnected" would display incorrectly.
-Added a mask that will open Windows 10 Network connections with a Left Mouse Button Click.
-Windows 7 is not supported. Too many shortcuts reference Windows 10 commands.

Update 2.1 12/21/18    
-Rewrote Network config to take advantage of New UsageMonitor Plugin. 
-Fixed Issue in Network config that caused data speeds to be incorrectly measured.
-Changed aesthetic of Network config elements.
-Removed Obscure IP config and integrated in intended functionality into the reworked Network config. 
-Added several readouts to the reworked Network Config, including displaying Net Adapter Name, Adapter Type, Net Mask, LAN Connection Status and Internet Connection Status.
-Replaced the old Processes config with Process Analysis, featuring enhancements enabled by Usage Monitor. 
-Process Analysis measures CPU and Ram usage, and displays contrasts of top process CPU usage vs. Total.
-Clicking Process Analysis will open Task Manager (provided it is installed on drive C:)
-Lowered Update rates on majority of animation enabled configs. Rainmeter's "Hardware Acceleration" allows for much more flexibility. 
-Updated references in Master Control to accommodate Process Analysis config.
-Removed old Histogram config. Functionality was added to new Process Analysis config. 
-Made some small Font Coloring changes to OS config via InlineSetting options.

Update 2.0 12/16/18
-Changed all line art, now more "sleek"
-Added some image masks to various display measures to give numbers and text a dot matrix feel.
-Completely reworked all folders.
-Animations have been culled. Only the Cyclotrons and Voltage animations remain. This has achieved a notable improvement on CPU load (obviously), though Running X2ui with X2ui Weather will increase CPU load substantially.
-Each skin that has an animated variant also has a static one
-Added a Master Control "button"to replace the Rotating Sphere gif.
-Master Control has three bars. The Top Bar Toggles game mode. It also saves the state of static or animated skins, meaning after activation of Game Mode, a subsequent deactivation will remember if you were running animated variants of skins or static ones.
-The Left Bar toggles animation/static states of skins and stores this as a variable so that Game Mode toggling can recall your last state. Toggling Game Mode will also disable X2ui Weather.
-The Right Bar is for use with X2ui Weather, and will toggle that suite on/off in it's entirety. T
-Removed the old "Game Mode" toggle button.
-Replaced the old Icon Toggle button with a new design.
-Total restructure of folders and files
-Eliminated any bloat possible (unused and old images, etc.)

Coming soon:
-Meter to replace CPU Histogram.
-A whole new news and communication suite.

Update 1.5
-Added dynamic buttons to the quick launch icons for both modes.
-Added animation for voltage modules in Full Mode.
-Added a button to hide desktop icons for both modes.
-Lowered update rate of network and CPU/RAM/SWAP meters.
-Changed all text to uppercase.


Update 1.451
-Modified rotating sphere gif - removed borders, should now display correctly regardless of background used.

Update 1.45
-Changed all fonts to Denton. Font is included with the package. Old fonts are still packaged for those that preferred them, but they will have to configure those themselves.
-Changed Game Mode button location for both Full and Game Mode.
-Replaced Game Mode Button Art with higher quality images.
-Changed size of game mode button
-Updated Network module to display in Mbps.
-Added an WANIP Obscure module to Full Mode. This will obscure the WANIP until moused over. 
-Fixed Network Module Histogram
-Altered art to accommodate new font.

Update 1.4
-SpeedFan support has been dropped. The skin relies solely on HWiNFO now.
-Replaced animated gif images with new ones. Old ones are still in the folders but no longer have a config file. 
-Added a second layout for gaming that utilizes only a fraction of the configs for better performance. 
-Added a "Game Mode" button that allows for seamless on-the-fly switching between the full suite and gaming-only reduced footprint mode.
-Consolidated and reorganized various skins and art to work with new layouts.

Update 1.2
-Changed color values on multiple objects and text
-Modified placement of Netbox Module line graphs and histograms

Update 1.1
-Fixed Spacing issue with CPU identifier
-Fixed incorrect header on network module .ini that caused the histogram and line graph for outgoing network traffic to incorrectly display incoming traffic instead.

Requires:
-HWiNFO www.hwinfo.com/

I *strongly* recommend downloading the Wallpaper provided above. This skin uses transparent background *gifs that look fine on darker wallpaper, on a light one? Well, not so much.

Preview Video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJGkq7…

Note: This is my first attempt at a Rainmeter skin. I created it for use with my monitor, which runs at 2160p, with 200% scaling in Windows. I can't say this is an entirely original concept, I got the idea from the UI used in the movie 'Oblivion'. www.gmunk.com/OBLIVION-GFX

Thanks.

-To edit the Values, download the HWiNFO skin that monitor Voltage:
www.hwinfo.com/files/Rainmeter…

-Install the skin

-Right Click the Rainmeter Icon and select "Manage".
-You will see the list of skins you have installed. Right Click "HWiNFO" AND SELECT "Open Folder"
-This will open a window. Open the folder "resources"
-Open HWiNFOSharedMemoryViewer.exe
-You should see your motherboard in the list of hardware. Here is mine.
imgur.com/z1inxOv
-Make note of the ID "0Xf7067910", yours will probably be different.
-Right click the Voltages skin and select edit. (I suggest using Notepad++).
-On line 15, under [Varibles] you will see "12uiSensorID=0xf7067910"
-Change that number to your ID.

That will change your MB shared memory location that Rainmeter is reading to your specific hardware. You may have to do this for each sensor:

12uiSensorInstance=0x0
12uiVccin=0x2000000
12uiVcore=0x200000a
12uiVDRAM=0x200000d
12uiVTT=0x2000009
12uiVCCSA=0x200000b
12uiVcoreRef=0x2000005


But I doubt it.

Well, the bottom launch bar does not reflect the colors used elsewhere. I run a 4k 32 inch monitor and so its hard to see sometimes where you can drag the different menus.

The ability to change colors, fonts and such would be nice, also integration with the weather skin would also be very nice.

I mean you use orange and other colors but the launch bar for DA and such is all blue. Maybe a quick tutorial about changing colors and fonts sizes and such.

Well, changing colors of the icons is something you’d have to do in Gimp. I recommend YouTube, that’s how I learned how to do most of what I did. It isn’t so simple, but not difficult.

To change fonts, I’d recommend going to Rainmeter’s website and reading the documentation.

Go to windows toolbar, right click Rainmeter icon, select “manage”.

Navigate to the X2ui or X2ui Weather Folder, and click the arrow. Click the arrow next to the folder of the thing you want to move - CPU, Drives, etc. Click the ini. *If* it is active things like coordinates, position and stuff won’t be greyed out, and you can deselect the boxes that say draggable and click through. Close the Manage Rainmeter window. Move until your heart is content. I did this to keep people from accidentally moving windows around.

Didn't feel like rooting around the files so I just took off the right most cpu panels and animations and the two icon like bars all the way at the bottom to adapt it to a 1920x1080 display, looks amazing might I add.

Glad you like it. Will be pushing out a big update in the coming days that will enhance performance and make some small changes to the artwork. Animated gifs that serve no purpose will be removed. The biggest focus right now is X2ui Weather which was released today, and once I’ve got a few updates pushed out for this and Weather, I will focus on creating a news/media suite.

This skin should work out of the box at 1920x1080 with 100% scaling. I am looking at implementing some type of scrolling scaling ability for the future.

:iconshtgun321:
Shtgun321 Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2018
Yeah from what I can tell, its automatic scaling didn't work. It moved those bottom buttons (steam, Pandora etc...) up into internet and CPU menus above it, and moved the right most 2 CPU menus over the menus in the middle to fit everything onto my screen.

:icondigitalrain84:
DigitalRain84 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2018  Hobbyist Artist
There is no automatic scaling. It works at 3840x2160 with widnows native scaling set to 200%, meaning at 1920x1080, with windows native scaling set to 100%, it will scale appropriately. I just tested this to verify, and it does indeed work.

I searched for gifs on google, found some decently high resolution, then used gimp to remove the backgrounds from each frame.

You might search for the 3D hologram skin that uses obj files to render a 3D object. That may look neat.

Hello, man. I finally managed to set up your skin. VERY nice. 😏 But I would like to know how you make these buttons. Want to make my own. Can you please draw a little schematic or something? Thank you. 😁

Don’t really need a schematic. There should be a blank button in the resources\images folder. Do you know how to use GIMP?

I don’t plan to do any icon changes at this time. You can however use Gimp to make your own. Also, PC settings is pretty generic... what PC settings? There’s already an icon for control panel, that’s about as many settings as anyone uses.

Never mind. I just tend to use Win 10 settings menu more than Control Panel. More compact.
Hmmmm... GIMP? But I don't know how you do these icons.
Pretty awesome skin anyway. It's like Process Explorer. But cooler! Good job! :thumbsup:

If you want to change the CPU temp monitoring per core to use HW info, you have to have the HWinfo rainmeter plug installed and change each of the CPU temp measure to something like this

[MeasureCore1Temp]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Plugins\HWiNFO.dll
HWiNFOSensorId=0xf0000400
HWiNFOSensorInstance=0x0
HWiNFOEntryId=0x1000000
HWiNFOType=CurrentValue
MinValue=0
MaxValue=75

This would need to be repeated for however many cores you are setting it up for.

Of course, using the values that HWiNFOSharedMemoryViewer.exe uses for your CPU temp. HWiNFOSensorId and HWiNFOSensorInstance will be the same for however many CPUs you have, but HWiNFOEntryId will be specific for each individual core. I am putting together a new i5 8600K system and this was easy. But on my old FX-6850 system I was testing the changes on originally, for some reason I was not able to get different HWiNFOEntryId values. No problem for me really there, as that system is going goodbye soon.

I'm a bit of a skin tweaker, i set things up for my own benefit. Just fyi, this rmskin package REFUSES to install the skin on my windows 7 x64 machine. says the skin can not be installed on my version of windows. wtf???

edit: Used WinRAR to unpack it, got to digging, really looks great. one thing has stopped me, and possibly others, from using it. Any way you can make an 8 core version? Thanks again.

I very love your theme but when i install, module Core Temperature is not working :(
I had installed your requires:

Can you help me config or the solution for my trouble? Thank you so much.

My guess would be that you don't have SpeedFan startup with Windows. To see if I am correct, open SpeedFan manually, then refresh the CoreTemp widget. If it works, you need to make SpeedFan startup on Windows boot.
