Hi, Fawadd.

Great Skin indeed and superb work!

I'm running 15.6" FHD Screen but This skin isn't working well.
Everything looks giant and over-scaled.

Is there any thing I can do to make this awesome thing work?

Here are my screenshots:

Tanks.

Hi, Glad you like it :)

I am really confused with your situation! although the layout placement is still perfect!
I will definitely look into this.
Really sorry for bugs, after all this was my 2nd skin!

I'm afraid you're not on a FHD (FullHD) resolution mate, i.e: 1920x1080.
Just ran into your second screenshot, it clearly says it there.
Check Section: Most common display resolutions in the first half of 2014

I will In'sha'Allah publish the version 1.2 of this skin soon with multiple screens support. :)

You're logically correct and infect I was also confused after seeing resolution in that skin, lol.
But When I went into control panel to check my display resolution, it clearly displayed my screen to be running on 1080p which is my native resolution with DPI scaling on default.
And thanks again for your such fantastic and creative work and good luck with your next update!

Just a couple tips...

You should never place an exe file in the plugins directory. That is only for dll plugins that Rainmeter calls as measures. Instead place it in the @Resources folder. At this point you are also using a full path to a location that may not always be true to call the addon (this is the proper term in this case). You should look into some of the Built-In Variables for this.

When calling the @Resources folder, there is no need to define the whole path. Simple use an existing built in variable of #@#.

OMG thank you so much man!
You really made a sense there like putting the .exe plugin in the @Resources folder instead of asking everyone who installs it to the Plugins Directory.
and that way i can simply give the file path in the code and no one will ever know :) thanks i got it! i really never thought of it this way ;) I really 
appreciate how you spent your time explaining me these tips thanks again!
i like tthe blue :3 thanks
