CircuitousTwo FAQ

Welcome to the CircuitousTwo Frequently Asked Questions guide.  I will use this journal to post answers to questions about the skins that I either get a lot, or that are too long and complicated to put in a mere comment. :thumb376652231: Does the media player skin work with Spotify?Short answer - not really. The NowPlaying plugin used in the media player skin only has partial support for Spotify.  As far as I can tell, this is mostly just because Spotify only shows limited information in the first place.  From the manual, here is what NowPlaying can do with Spotify: Partially supported. Only the types Artist, Track and the bangs Play, Pla

Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #2 - Binary Clock

Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #2 - Binary Clock

If you are unfamiliar with the binary (base 2) numeral system, you may want to do some reading here before going through the rest of this post. The aim of this skin is to create a binary-coded decimal clock in Rainmeter.  To keep this short, we'll just do the hours and minutes (especially since the code for seconds is virtually identical to the minutes anyway). Download Full Skin Here (package includes several variants - we'll be going through "Decimal_HM.ini") The Groundwork To begin, we'll need [Rainmeter], [Metadata], and [Variables] sections.  Once again, we'll use include (https://www.deviantart.com/include) to put the variables in an external file (called Appearance.

Adding more Hard Drives to Elementary

Adding more Hard Drives to Elementary

(For deliprofesor (https://www.deviantart.com/deliprofesor) and Hippokrates (https://www.deviantart.com/hippokrates)) First things first, we'll need to add more variables for the hard drives you want to monitor.  There are several ways to do this (and you could get by without doing it at all and just hardcoding the drive letters into the skin) but the most useable way is probably to add them to Settings.txt.  I just added two more variables below the one that is already there in Settings.txt.  You can name them whatever you want as long as the names are all different. drive=C drive2=H drive3=D Now that that's out of the way, we have to add measures for the extra hard drives.  In either system skin (eSystem1 o

DINAJ code for ~legionfalls

DINAJ code for ~legionfalls

This should make the skin only appear when you need a jacket, and be invisible otherwise.  (Note that I haven't tested this personally, so let me know.) All the measures before [mCalcYN] can stay the same.  However, [mCalcYN] itself needs to be changed like this: [mCalcYN] Measure=CALC Formula=(1 < mCalcTemp) || (0 < mCalcWind) ? 0 : 1 Then we're going to make some change to the meters.  First we're going to add a blank transparent image meter, and move the MouseActions out of the [Rainmeter] section and into this meter - that way you can get the buttons to show even if the strings are hidden, and there will always be a placeholder.  Pre

Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #1 - Do I Need a Jacket

This is a code walkthrough of my "Do I Need a Jacket?" Rainmeter weather skin.  The goal of the skin is to replicate doineedajacket.com in a Rainmeter weather skin, including the ability of the end user to set their own temperature thresholds.  Here's a screenshot of what this skin looks like: Download Here The GroundworkFirst, lets get the basics out of the way.  We of course need [Rainmeter], [Metadata], and [Variables] sections.

Hello everyone! It's been a while. Other priorities took my time for working on Rainmeter, so several of my skins have been broken for a while and there are lots of unanswered comments. Sadly I don't think I'll ever get around to answering all of the...
