CircuitousTwo by FlyingHyrax CircuitousTwo by FlyingHyrax


Rainmeter skins, version 1.0

These are simple roundline and string skins - sort of a combination of my older Circuitous and Simplicity Circles skins. The design doesn't lend itself to things like feed readers and calendars, but there are a lot more skins in the suite than are shown in the preview:

Included skins:

- Battery monitor
- Hard drive space (x3)
- Disk activity (using PerfMon.dll)
- RAM space
- SWAP space
- Upload traffic
- Download traffic
- Wifi monitor
- Media player control using NowPlaying.dll
- CPU (average load and top process)
- CPU cores (x4) (core load and frequency)
- Recycle Bin (size, item count, auto-empty)
- CPU temperature (either CoreTemp or SpeedFan)
- Time and Date
- Volume control
- Weather (using Yahoo! Weather)
- vertical or horizontal background bar
[screenshot showing all the skins included in the suite]

Skin settings can be easily changed using the Config.ini skin


Bernd Montag - Sansation font
Yahoo! Weather - weather data
smurfier - Lua wizard
Kaelri - @include-fu
jsmorley - RegExp guru
gronostajo - SimplyRound skin
lalibi - Etheldrede Pantone
amc242 - beta tester
ionstorm01 - beta tester

More info/Help me/How to:

Try the ReadMe file first. You can open it from the Config.ini skin, and it is located at right in the skin root folder.
I also am maintaining a "FAQ" journal entry for these skins, for answers that I expect to repeat a lot or for semi-complicated things that need a long answer.
If the ReadMe and FAQ don't cover it, then fire away in the comments - I'll answer any question I can.

Many thanks everyone who helped beta test these skins, and I hope you all enjoy the final product. As usual, bug reports, feature suggestions, and constructive criticism are all greatly appreciated.

Hyrax out. :wave:

Hi there. I'm new to using Rainmaker and I love this skin. I have a question though. How do you keep the welcome screen or the info,appearance,system,time, etc screen from coming up? Or at least hide it? Thanks!

I tried to install it but it is unable to be read by the skinstaller for rainmeter, it shows up as a compressed folder.
Zepertix Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2017
Not sure if you still comment, but is there a way to individually flip them left or right oriented? Like it seems like it's all or nothing, anyway to do like certain ones left and certain ones right?
Drumnik Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2017
Where can i Dwonload that Skin
Crescendiem Featured By Owner May 29, 2017
So I tried to install it, but i'm getting a "does not contain any meters" error and i haven't found any help on the internet. I read the FAQ and the Read me too...
Sad to see this might be too late to ask for help, though orz
vatterix Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2017
Been using this skin for...years?

Recently I rebuild a whole new rig but the weather is not working. using gives me a difference ID code and looking up a WOEID near me. I did not write it down (I probably should have).

great work! 
FPSUsername Featured By Owner Edited Dec 12, 2016
I completely fixed the weather app.
Only thing you need to do is add your towncode and api id which you can get on

BuddyDavis Featured By Owner Edited Nov 22, 2016
Thx farmercl - I finally got the weather working!!! Love this skin. 
EaleKun Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2016
Hi, i'm having a problem right now. I can't use the skin, the configure panel is kinda useless to me and when I load the other things, only a small texts will show up.
RavenclawWit Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2016  Hobbyist Artist
I love this skin, been using it for awhile now. Any plans to update the weather skin since the Yahoo Weather api doesn't work anymore?
OhhLoz Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2016
Hey, I was wondering how I would turn the circle meters into semicircle meters as displayed here? (
paytonmichal Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2016
I made an account just to reply to your comment lol

It took some time to mess around with the settings, but I think I figured it out.

First go to "advanced" in the CircuitousTwo menu and exit out of the first window that pops up.

Your settings should look like this:

; size and scaling

; show and hide skin components

Let me know if that worked for you! :) Have a good one!
OhhLoz Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2016
Wow that works!

Thank you SO MUCH.

Spazdmo Featured By Owner Edited Nov 4, 2016
Great skin and easy to use!

Found that the Download and upload values are in Bytes per/s rather than Bits per/s.
Adjusted the .ini file to represent the adjusted values.

In download.ini, add the following
Formula=(mDownload * 8)

Then change the subtext section to this.
MeterStyle=subTextStyle | subTextCommon

To change the upload.ini, just change the mDownload for mUpload.

Here are the PasteBin Links:

upload.ini :

For some reason the temp wont show data. I downloaded CoreTemp.  I also am not able to get the weather to work. I have tried to follow instructions listed in the comments with no luck. Other than that this is wonderful. 
Olaipai Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2016
Hey! Great skin! 

But, I am having this issue with it. I can't seem to figure out how in the world I can get it to stay at default position "normal" it always comesback to "Topmost". 
Do you have a solution for it? 

I have tried "OnRefreshAction=!ZPos "0" and "AlwaysOnTop=0".

Hey man, loving the skin!
I was just wondering about implementing Chameleon into your skin.
I have managed to implement it into DINAJ2 but implementing it into C2 doesn't seem to work.
For some reason when I implement the code that worked for DINAJ it just turns everything white.
Do you have any tips or any idea what could be going wrong?
xmiller Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2016
I followed farmercl's instructions below and got the weather reporting the current temp, expected temp, and condition.
But the the progress circle shows nothing, i.e. 0%.
Any ideas?
qazy123 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2016
How do you make one circle go the opposite direction, instead of all of them?
jorgeapp Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2016
I still can't see the temperature and fan speed, some one can help me? 
somerandomnameinhere Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2016
Make sure if you have core temp and speedfan
Evanesce97 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2016
Hi this may sound kinda dumb, but how do you re-position the icons? 
xmiller Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2016
If they are flagged as Draggable (which should be the default) just drag and drop them?
CAGUEINOLIXO Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2016
Thank you!
farmercl Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2016
I just got it working a few minutes ago.

First, you need to add an API key to dscm's code.
    1.  Create an account at and add an API.  It is a free account.
    2.  Add the following to the URL code: &APPID=ADD_YOUR_API_KEY_NUMBER_HERE

Second, you need to use the city ID rather than the city name.  To do that:
     1.  Change the URL code from ?q=YOUR_CITY_NAME to ?id=ADD_YOUR_CITY_NUMBER_HERE
     2.  To find your city ID search for your city on  The city ID will be in the URL of your browser.  Copy and paste it into your code.

If you want fahrenheit instead of celsius make the following changes to the code:
    1. Change the URL code from &units=metric to &units=imperial
    2. Change the RegExp code from \sunit="metri(.*)" to \sunit="fahrenheit(.*)"

My code looks like this:

Here is the pastebin link to the code without the emoticons and links:

Thank you dscm for providing the code so that the weather skin works again.

I hope this is helpful.
Tayhan9 Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2016
you're the best!!!! finally got it working. One thing to point out is the stock yweather.ini doesn't have all of your RegExp line in it. Mine is:


 I was trying to figure out what i was doing wrong and the only thing i wasn't trying was changing the metric to imperial. Once i copied your regexp line into mine and refreshed, it worked with my city code. Thank you so much for this!
