Modified Bar colors to use Chameleon Foreground1 and Background1 desktop colors

~ This ensures the bars will always have contrasting colors
Open "Skins\illustra\@Resources\variables.inc" in a text editor.
Follow the instructions to set the PLAYERINTERFACE=????? value for your media player.
Save the file and refresh the skin.
When you click on the Title, your media player should open.
If it doesn't, you will need to add the complete path to your player ; let me know if you need more info on this and what player you are using.
Colors can be selected with middle-click on any illustra skin.
Weather variables can be set by right-click any weather skin, 'Custom skin actions...', 'Edit weather variables' and follow instructions in that file to set latitude, longitude, and units values.
I'm really liking the direction you went with this. I am having one issue, however. I'm using "Light Text w/Dark Header & Back" and the fonts have a reddish shadow. I looked in the USER VARIABLES but couldn't find anything to get rid of it. Thanks in advance for any insight.
This is caused by having 'red' picked as the 'accent' color by Windows based on your wallpaper. The accent color chosen by Windows is used as the shadow color in all style sections of each skin.
To change that would require editing each skin's style sections (styleTitle, styleLeftText, and styleRightText), and modifying either the StringEffect or FontEffectColor for each style (not something I would attempt or recommend). Changing your wallpaper will give differing results.
You can minimize the effect if you also select 'Accent Background Color' after selecting the text/header options in illustra's option skin.
Basically I need time, with seconds, Hebrew/Gregorian date, and Local Weather.
Maybe the windows telling me how stressed my system is.
