Hey guys, starting with some new projects; Namely indie game development!
I'm not really doing things under Fiftyniner any more; Rather, you can find me now under JTemoshenko!

I'll mostly be keeping up to date here on Twitter:
twitter.com/JTemoshenko

See you all around!




[desktop+++]
Version=    1.1.2
Author=     Fiftyniner



[description]

;After over a month of work, I'm finally ready to release Desktop+++!

;I've redesigned the entire theme from the bottom up, remaking all assets
;myself and restyling them to my likings. All of the sidemeters are modular
;and can be arranged however you please, I've also added some convenience
;features such as the ability to configure the entire theme from a single file,
;from refresh rates to music players to the color of the entire skin!



[patchNotes]

;So I didn't get EVERYTHING I wanted to in to this update, but I figure it's been
;over a month since initial release and I STILL haven't released a patch for that
;stupid Celsius bug.. So here, have a few new features and a few dead bugs!

;The resolution pack is also taking a bit longer than expected, turns out it's
;going to take quite a fair bit of work. I'll have to remake a bunch of sidebars,
;and create a bunch of new assets and do a bunch of coding to get all of the
;equalizers working. Sorry for the delay! ^^'

;1.1.2:

New=     Added Jarquafelmu's Chrome icon to the icon resource folder.
Fixed=    Restored Equalizers with no circle cutouts.

;1.1.1:

Fixed=    Changed minimum OS supported setting from 7 to XP. Oops!

;1.1:

New1=    Recycle Bin Circle
New2=    Separated the middle equalizers in to their own files.
New3=    Refresh Rates for RSS and Weather can now be configured through UserConfig file.
New4=    Togglable Background Gradient feature.
New5=    Text Overlay meter, to help those unfamiliar to the skin.
New6=    Reorganized the UserSettings.ini to be much easier to read.

Fixed1=   Fixed incorrect Upload/Download speed.
Fixed2=   Fix Weather Sidemeter not changing C to F depending on setting in UserConfig.ini.
Fixed3=   Orgranized a buncha resources in the resources folder.



[comingSoon]

Soon1=    Support for lower resolutions
Soon2=    Hard Drive Sidemeter
Soon3=    Music Player Sidemeter
Soon4=    Redo text on shortcut sidemeters to be similar to circle shortcuts
Soon5=    Ability to disable hover shortcuts on the circle clock



[maybeSomeDay]

Idea1=    Some sort of UI for spawning the different parts of the theme
Idea2=    Redo the shortcut system, right now it's a bit confusing and proprietary
Idea3=    Theming engine to allow custom overlays on the clock and sidebars
Idea4=    #userideafromcomments#

;MAKE SOME SUGGESTIONS, PEOPLE! I can't come up with what you want, but YOU can!



[themeContent]

Circles:
Weather, Clock, Music Player, Shortcuts, Recycle Bin

Sidemeters:
RSS, System, Network, Shortcuts

Sidebars:

[frequentlyAskedQuestions]

Question1=   The sidebars don't fit on my screen! They're too big or too small!
Answer1=     Unfortunately, the theme only supports 1920x1080 natively.

Question2=  X isn't working!
Answer2=    All widgets included should work without any tinkering. Any
                    problems are most likely caused by something like a plugin
                    no longer working. I know this is the case for the Spotify Player.

Question3= Where can I find an icon for X program?
Answer3=   Check the comments! Plenty of people have made all kinds of
                   icons for the theme.

Question4= I can't find an icon for X! How do I make one?
Answer4=   The icons included in the pack make great templates, as you
                   can copy common traits like resolution and opacity from them.
                   It will, however, require some basic image editing software knowledge.

just getting back into Rainmeter and this was always one of my favorites. thanks

many thanks Fiftyniner for all the work. i don't know if this will help anyone but i did manage to change the equalizer bar color. example: navigate to the resources\equalizerBars folder and use photoshop to change to color of the bardefault.png and save as anyname.png, then navigate to the  Equalizers\No Circle Cutouts\Top Equalizer\EqualizerTop.ini and under STYLES  change the png file name from bardefault.png to anyname.png and then delete the ImageTint=# Primary3 # just below it and then save or another way is to navigate to resources\usersettings.ini and edit the Primary3 settings (r,b,g, opacity)under active palette. (i did make a backup copy of the ini file in case i ever want to change back to the original.) anyway it worked for me and i hope this may help anyone else that has trouble trying to get the eq bar colors to match your wallpaper.

I can't get the weather sidemeter to work. It won't show anything. I've done everything as prescribed but it just won't work. Can anyone help?
nexusprime99's avatar
how do you get different shortcuts on the clock and shortcut bars?
Tomtom9970's avatar
Any chance we can get a music controller instead of shortcuts on the clock hover over? Fantastic skin by the way!

With some help from @lathorne post and forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.… I've spent some time figuring out the Spotify problem with this skin... Added a line cous of overlaping codes that made the play/pause button useless when I finally made the Artist name and Title to show... 

And trust me I had no idea what I was doing... But this skin is too nice to have something not working....

This does not seem to work for me :( im putting it in UserSettings.ini, where is it supposed to go?
for me it just shows the title of the track 7 or 8 times around the screen, and the centre is still title/artist.
any ideas?
Thanks :P
TheSpartanZeus's avatar
Never mind i was being silly. This is for music.ini -_- not usersettings...

Hey, when i load the skin, its too big for my screen, help changing that? Screen Resolution - 1366 X 768
Boboo1023's avatar
hi i seems to struggle with getting it to sync with spotify, equalizer works great but can't get the title and album name to work. Is it possible to make the album picture from spotify sync with this as well?
SniparsM8's avatar
My equalizer bars are automatically installed as a bright green? wtf?
I spent a couple of hours trying to change the color but it won't let me...
Help please.

How do you switch to a 24hour clock? Sorry bit of a newb when it comes to this... :/
nath122's avatar
I doubt this still interests you but I had the same problem so I looked it up in the rainmeter manual. So in case anyone needs help with this: go to the .ini of the clock you use and then at

[Time]
Measure=Time
Format=%I:%M

change it to

[Time]
Measure=Time
Format=%H:%M

where %I is the 12 hour format and %H 24 hour. There is quite a nice documentation for this in case anyone wonders: docs.rainmeter.net/manual/meas…

MotionFox's avatar
Great Skin :) But is there a way to change the color of the equalizers ?
Casterxxx's avatar
where can I find the wallpaper? I couldn't find it under skin
AlbinoTaco's avatar
Hey there! Love the skin, just wanted to help with any issues finding a location for Office programs since they don't have a defined one and it's a little confusing.

What I did was just copied the shortcuts from the desktop in windows explorer, then pasted them into my documents in a folder and set the location to that folder so you'd put something like this for the Left Click ["C:\Users\you\Documents\Office\Word\"]

I also renamed each program to just whatever they are so it doesn't have a long name to type. (ex. Microsoft Office OneNote 2010 > OneNote)

Hey! I have two questions! :p

First one, how can I put my city on the weather?

Second one, can I make the black circle "desapear" ?

Thanks, and great work!

To change location just change the url in the measures. Change # Location # to your zip code. If you want to change to Fahrenheit, change # Metric # to the letter f.

How do I configure the player? I set to AIMP but its still said Title and Artist and 00:00/00:00 at the desktop :/
