-----------------------------------------------------------
Versions!
-----------------------------------------------------------

v2.4.4
    Drastically improved SWAP monitoring accuracy.
    Fixed layout loading "Illustro" skin items if it was installed on the system.
    Added deep blue color option and changed old "Blue" to "Cyan"

v2.4.3:
    Updated the weather parser to use Weather.com's new XML feed URL.

v2.4.2d:
    Changed Coretemp download link back to Mediafire because its parent website is being shown as Red Flagged. This event occurs differently depending on what web browser you're using.
    This will be the last time I'll change the download link unless it's absolutely necessary.

    Special thanks to user Unramaan for alerting me to this issue!

v2.4.2c:
    Changed Coretemp download link back to its parent website.
    
    ::Message to Users!::
            There seem to be no more trojan warnings coming from the program's installer. If this changes again, please, anyone inform me!
            I'll have a clean, safe version of the program ready for download ASAP.

v2.4.2b:
    Changed Coretemp download link because of dropbox blocking my account due to too much traffic.
    The file is now being hosted on Mediafire.

v2.4.2:
    Changed the CoreTemp download link. This is the correct, and clean, version of CoreTemp.

v2.4.1:
    Temporarily took away the resolution request button.
    Removed the version history tab in the config.
    Other minor changes to the config.

v2.4:    
    Added themes to the skins features.
    Added four themes: Green, Red, Blue, and Dark Orange

v2.3:
    Fixed Weather Code entry box not displaying in the proper location.
    Changed how the Recycle Bin app handled displaying the 'Empty' option when showing its current size.
    Better clarified how you should enter your email username and password.
    Added ‘Version Information’ tab to the config.
    Removed many duplicate and unused images.
    Added variable so users can more easily edit the maximum number of emails that the skin will register.

v2.2:
    Added 1024 x 768 to the config.

v2.1:
    Fixed minor bug that would cause swap on the system taskbar to overlap other entries. 

v2.0:
    New Config app that supports the new features in version 2.0
    System taskbar added.
    Program taskbar added.
    Better support for the new D2D rendering engine in Rainmeter 3.0
    Fixed a bug where the SWAP values would go into massive negative numbers.
    Better way of making new resolutions. I'm still figuring out a way to make it 100% automatic.
    Mixed weather units. Example: Celsius while using Mph for windspeed.

v1.2:
    Now loads the Config.ini when installed.
    Added 1600 x 900 to the config.
    Fixed positioning of the Recycle Bin meter.
    Fixed random typos throughout the skin.

v1.1:
    Added different resolution options to the config

v1.0:
    Initial release

-----------------------------------------------------------
Known Bugs!
-----------------------------------------------------------
When installing the skin or running the config app, Rainmeter becomes unresponsive and locks up. 

    Info about this bug:
        Thanks to H0rwood, I've found out that the config tool is causing the issue. 
        At this moment I'm not quite sure what's in the config that's causing this to happen.
        Currently, the workaround is to force close Rainmeter. After that you should be able to edit the 'SkinVariables.inc' file and then launch the apps individually.
    

-----------------------------------------------------------
Theme Help!
-----------------------------------------------------------
I've added themes for the current release. So far I have green, red, blue, and dark orange themes, but I'd like to add more.
If anyone's good with PS and your interested in helping make more themes, don't hesitate to contact me!

Hi, I've customized a personal version of Wisp for myself and it's working wonderfully. The only issue is that every so often the font size or position on the month text in the main skin and the minutes of the clock on both the separate skins and in the program taskbar seems to get reset? Do you have any advice on where to start looking at stopping that from happening?
FiiZzioN's avatar

Sorry about the delay. Define what you mean by reset? There's nothing in the skin that changes the position of elements apart from when you choose your screen resolution, and that only happens when you click on a given resolution.
padmesigma's avatar
It was changing back to the default settings as they were before I modified it (so for the 1920 x 1080), but it was just happening randomly every once in a while when rainmeter updated the skin, without me changing anything or refreshing directly, only with those specific parts of the elements (the font size on the month or the offset on the month and minutes) and not every time. I would have to go back into the ini for the clock, date and taskbar to change them again manually. I haven't noticed it in the past day or so, so I guess it sorted itself out? Anyway, it was very strange.

This is my personalized version, by the way. Other than messing with the background, font and colors, I added a shut-down menu, as well as a load button for my spotify skin in the taskbar, and replaced the weather section with a randomized lyrics quote and the email section with a volume bar. It's probably not that appealing to anyone else, but I've always been a hippie at heart and I love the end result. Thanks a lot for the great skin!

You said that if anyone is interested in making other themes/colors to contact you. I was wondering if you still have the original project (PSD or equivalent) with the layers used in making the background? I did a few edits for myself but doing it from the final colored image is a bit of a pain.

FiiZzioN's avatar
FiiZzioNHobbyist Interface Designer
Sorry for the delay. I didn't make the original wallpaper so I don't have those items, unfortunately. All of the colors were made by other people editing the original green wallpaper and then sending it to me.
VL4DST3R's avatar

No problem! thanks for clearing that out. I'm guessing you don't happen to remember from where you got the original wallpaper, do you?

Hey there! I've not been able to get the weather portion of the skin to work. I did some digging and was wondering if this was related to the weather.com API shutdown. If so, I truly love this skin and don't want to use anything else and was wondering if there was a work around to get it working or if you were working on an update to the skin to get the weather working again.

FiiZzioN's avatar
FiiZzioNHobbyist Interface Designer
The reason it no longer works is because the service that the skin used to grab the information was decommissioned. The only way to get it to work is to set the skin up to grab the information from a different service. Sadly, I currently don't have a ton of free time, so re-configuring the skin to work with a different service isn't that high of a priority at the moment. Hopefully, I can get to it relatively soon, but I can't promise anything.

If someone else does it and decides to share it, I'd more than happy to include it with an update. Until someone does that, or I get some free time, that part of the skin won't function. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
RebelSean's avatar

Whole heartedly understand that and appreciate you responding in detail. I know these things take time and will continue to use this wonderful skin without that widget for the time being. This is the only skin I like and can wait for a fix/update

Ramssess's avatar
Thanks for your great skin, just one thing, how do you change the weather location?
FiiZzioN's avatar
FiiZzioNHobbyist Interface Designer
The option is in the skin's config app. If you right-click the Rainmeter icon in the system tray, click skins, scroll down to and hover over Wisp, you'll see the "Config.ini" app at the top. Everything you need to configure the skin is located there.

Hey man, just wondering if anything is wrong with the weather service for your skin? I havent been able to get the weather showing for the past 2 days

FiiZzioN's avatar
FiiZzioNHobbyist Interface Designer
That's odd, mine is working fine. If you're using an older version than v2.4.3, you'll need to download the most recent version as that's when I had to update the weather parser. I do know that the website where the information is gathered can have hiccups if you're in a remote part of the world, but it will eventually figure itself out. Another thing you can try is exiting Rainmeter and restarting it, but an even better thing to do would be to completely restart your PC to see if that fixes it.

If none of those things fix it, see if you can get weather data from this weather code: USGA0552

If you do get data from my code, then it might be something funky going on with the data associated with your weather code. You could try to use another code from the surrounding area to see if you can get that to work.

If these things don't help you, just get back to me and I'll delve deeper to try to figure it out.

Thanks for this amazing skin!
Is there a way to view more drives? I am currently working with 8 and would love to see all of them.

I am new to Rainmeter, so please forgive me if this is a stupid question. When I load any of these skins the text is either the wrong color (black on a black background) or a very incorrect size. I am assuming the first thing I do is load config.ini to set the colors/sizes. When I do, all the text is jumbled together so I can't read anything. I've tried this on three different computers with three different resolutions and monitors. Help please.

Also, this skin is BEAUTIFUL. And it provides exactly what I need. Thanks for the hard work!

Sounds like it's somehow being installed wrong. Are you trying to install it manually, or with the "Wisp.rmskin" installer? If you are trying to do it manually, then that is the problem.

The next thing we can try is doing a clean install. Navigate to where your Rainmeter skins would normally be installed. For most people, this will be located at: "C:\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins"; once there, delete the "Wisp" folder entirely. When it's deleted, try to install the skin again using the provided installer.

If things still aren't working correctly after the last install, navigate to: "C:\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Wisp\resources\Fonts" and install the font that is provided in that folder. All you should have to do is double-click the file, and once it's open, click the "Install" button in the top left. After that, completely exit Rainmeter, and then restart it.

If neither of those options work, then I'm gonna more info.
1. Do you have Rainmeter installed normally, or did you chose the "Portable Installation" option?
2. Did you choose the release version or the beta version of Rainmeter?
2. What operating system are you using?

Thanks so much FiiZzioN. I went to your Github and downloaded instead of downloading the .rmskin file. That worked. Thanks again for the beautiful skin and the help.

Glad to hear that you were finally able to get it to work!
