Skin contains:12h-24h clock,Todo,Visualizer,Player,Weather forecast,etc..
Skin also contains an automatic change of wallpaper depending on the time of the day.
 :)
I chose these wallpapers, because they fit with my desktop. :)
But,of course you can change default wallpapers to your wallpapers for "Morning,Afternoon,Evening and Night".
If you don't want to skin automatically change the screen background depending on the time of day, simply unload "TimeOfDayWallChange.ini" skin.
These languages have been added for now: English,French,Polish,Serbian,Russian,Spanish,German,Italian,Dutch.

How to open settings:
You can open the settings by double clicking on the Clock skin.

[MeasureConvertNum]
Measure=Calc
Formula=MeasureTime
IfCondition=(MeasureConvertNum >= 00) && (MeasureConvertNum < 06)
IfTrueAction=[!SetWallpaper "#@#TimeOfDayWall/Night.jpg"]
IfCondition2=(MeasureConvertNum >= 06) && (MeasureConvertNum < 12)
IfTrueAction2=[!SetWallpaper "#@#TimeOfDayWall/Morning.jpg"]
IfCondition3=(MeasureConvertNum >= 12) && (MeasureConvertNum < 18)
IfTrueAction3=[!SetWallpaper "#@#TimeOfDayWall/Afternoon.jpg"]
IfCondition4=(MeasureConvertNum >= 18)
IfTrueAction4=[!SetWallpaper "#@#TimeOfDayWall/Evening.jpg"]

You need to change this (I have tagged with black bold) numbers.This numbers represent hours.Left numbers represent "from", right represent "to".
For example, 00 and 06 means that Night wallpaper will be displayed from midnight 00:00 until 06:00 in the morning.

Hi there! It looks like i have problem whith weater icon, it always same (cloud with sun) no matter what weather is out there. As far as i understand those variables r used for weathe icons:

[MeasureWeatherIcons]
Measure= Plugin
Plugin= Plugins\WebParser.dll
Url=[MeasureCurrent]
StringIndex=5

[MeterCurrentIcon]
Meter=Image
MeasureName=MeasureWeatherIcons
Path=#@#WeatherIcons
X=90
Y=-15
W=100
AntiAlias=1
ImageTint=#TextColor#

But i dont understand which line is responsible for icons changing from folder \WeatherIcons. Can u help pls?

HipHopium Featured By Owner Edited Sep 21, 2018
Hi!As you already said, this code is responsible for icon:

[MeasureWeatherIcons]    <<<<<< This code receive information from weather provider
Measure= Plugin
Plugin= Plugins\WebParser.dll
Url=[MeasureCurrent]
StringIndex=5

[MeterCurrentIcon]     <<<<<<<< This code displays received information
Meter=Image
MeasureName=MeasureWeatherIcons
Path=#@#WeatherIcons
X=90
Y=-15
W=100
AntiAlias=1
ImageTint=#TextColor#

But the problem is that everything is good and normal.There's simply no need to change anything with code.I've used this skin many times without any problems.32,082 peoples use this skin,but you are probably the only one who have this problem.Maybe you misunderstood this.You will see Sun with cloud in this cases: Fair, mostly cloudy, partly cloudy, mostly sunny, mostly clear.And because of that you think weather icon never change.

You're welcome.This is misunderstanding or simply weather provider send the same code for weather icon.I mean only for your location, because i don't see anything wrong with skin code.For my location works fine.I checked 5-6 locations,and skin works fine.When is rain,i see rain icon.When is cloudy i see cloud icon.

Hi HipHopium,

Great skin you gave here buddy !! Kudos to you !! Loved it very much...

I have one question, the visualizer only responds to when playing music from my laptop speakers but not when I put my headphones into its 3.5mm jack. What should I do?

hi there,

first of all, I love your skin! I use it since yesterday and it just works perfect. I only do have one question...

there already was a guy asking about making the visualizer invisible... I do have the same question... but I'm not using the player (because I use Spotify (the visualizer works))

now I wanted to ask if it would be possible to make the visualizer invisible without using the player..? everything else works perfect, thanks for that! :)

Great skin! Thank you! Question, how can I add a "space" and remove the dot, on the Date? Because I see Tuesday,12 June. and I want to edit it to look Tuesday, 12 June with spacing and the dot removed.

Untitled by CrimsonBloodfang  

Edit: Nevermind, I fixed it by editing the .ini to

[MeasureDate]
Measure=Time
Format=%A, %d %B
Substitute=#Date#


Can you also make the Google Search to open websites immediately, when searching for a complete URL? Like if I Google Search www.deviantart.com it will immediately open the website, instead of going through Google Search Results.
Please, that would really be a handy and useful implementation. I'm using Firefox Browser, latest version.


I'm also reading the comments below for guides given by you on different customizations of this skin and you've given tons of them. Maybe you can add them in the OP with its Title or Description of the guide or your comment and it's link, to minimize duplicate questions?

-I'm glad you found the solution. ;)
-I would, but i can't ,because i think that idea for Google Search is simply not possible.. :(
-I like your idea,i will see what to do to minimise duplicate questions..

But i would like to say something to you (to avoid confusion, what i'm about to say is nothing to do with you):

When i started with Rainmeter 7-8 years ago,i didn't ask anyone,how i can change color,size,etc..
First i downloaded some simple skin from deviantart.I can't remember,but i think it was some clock and weather forecast.
Then i thinking in myself "This clock is big for my screen"..Then i decided to try to adjust it to my needs.
When i opened the ".ini" file,i didn't know,what is for what.Then i changed the coordinates, one by one,to see what will happen.
And in that way,first i learned how to mod a Rainmeter skin..And, later how to make a rainmeter skin. :)
Rainmeter is free software,which anyone can use.All information about creating and editing skins,everyone can find here:

docs.rainmeter.net/manual/

But,people have become lazy,to read the description and have a little research on the Internet.I'm one of the few skin makers here, who answers on posted questions about skins.It's not a problem for me to answer on the question. But it would be nice for people to start on their own to find a simple solution. By reading the instructions ,descriptions and comments. ;) (Wink)

First of all,thank you! Nod 
When you changed wallpapers, you didn't do properly.

C:\Users\#YourUserName#\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Simplon\@ Resources\TimeOfDayWall
In this folder "TimeOfDayWall" you will find default wallpapers that come with this skin .Then you can replace default wallpapers with your own.

Notes: 
Your wallpapers must be in "jpg" format,and they must be renamed same as default wallpapers (Morning,Afternoon,Evening,Night)..
When you finish,refresh Rainmeter.

Hey! Awesome Skin, but I have to say I've a issue, the "Player WebNowPlaying" is not displaying the Title of the songs I'm playing, it does what so ever display the artist (Youtube channel for example), I use Chrome, and Youtube mainly, do you know what can be going wrong HipHopium ? Thank you on advance, really cool and nice skin, nice work!

First of all,i must thank you for your nice opinions! Nod Well,to be honest,i don't use webnowplaying plugin,so i didn't update some time that player.Thank you for the info,"Player (WebNowPlaying).ini" is updated and checked,and it works fine now.;) (Wink) 
You can download and install this skin again.
NOTES:
For any case,do this if you didn't earlier:
First you must install this extension if you wana use "WebNowPlaying".
Extension links:
For Google >>> Chrome Web Store
Also make sure your firewall is not blocking Rainmeter from making network requests.
So,if you get a notification from Firewall,click on "Allow".
And of course,because, default rainmeter player is "Player.ini",don't forghet to chose 
"Player (WebNowPlaying).ini".

And,that's all. ;) (Wink)
