Grunge Clock v1.5

Removing the Leading Zero
Thanks ~Scd2k10 for asking. For anyone else who is wondering, this is how it's done.
Right click the clock and select "Edit Skin." Under the measure [MeasureTimeMinutes], change "Format=%H:%M" to "Format=%#H:%M". Don't forget to save the document and refresh the skin to apply the change.

Using More Fonts
Save/Install the font you want in "C:\Windows\Fonts." Open the "ini" file in notepad and change the font listed next to "FontFace." There are three places it needs to be changed on the clock and six places on the clock/calendar.

Although this seems like a nice clock visually, the code behind it is quite poor. Two issues. First, the clock is NOT in sync with your PC clock (tested on Windows 7 and 10); it lags behind by about half a second, which seems like not a big deal - but it *is* - because a clock only does one thing, it tracks time and it is supposed to do it precisely; some people use clocks to do things that are time sensitive, like trade stocks or monitor important events such as sports or news; and a clock that is not precise is like a car without wheels or a refrigerator without refrigeration. And second, the 24-hour clock forces AM or PM to be displayed next to time. Come ON people, seriously$%#@&???

glad you were able to get it to work. :)
The clock won't appear im currently running Rainmeter 2.1 beta tho that just came out, you think that's a problem? Has it been tested on the new beta?
This is great, how would I scale down the text of the font size so it disp[lays smaller?

Right click the skin and click "edit"
Under "Meters" change the number next to "FontSize" for each of the three parts under "Clock" and/or "Calendar"
You may have to adjust the X and/or Y values to move the parts of the clock if gaps appear.
