Sorry guys, due to outside commitments and life I can no longer provide support for this skin.

It will still work but if anyone is having trouble I'm sorry if I don't reply.

I've had nothing but heaps of GREAT responses to this skin - I'm glad everyone loved it as much as they did. ^_^

To get the skin: [link]

To get Rainmeter (to use the skin): [link]

To get the wallpaper: [link]

This image shows both the black and white option in action however this skins contains many more apps than those shown.


Intro:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My skin, taboo_Vision, is a modification/upgrade/tidy up/tweaking of Jiri Mahel's skin HUD.Vision.

HUD.Vision is one of the most popular skins for Rainmeter and one that I fell in love with, however I felt it needed just a few modification to make it truly fantastic. To anyone that has used HUD.Vision I hope you too feel taboo_Vision improves on what was already a fantastic skin, and to those of you that haven't I hope you love my skin just the same.

Any complaints, bugs, complements or requests can be sent to jamien_price@hotmail.com. I would love to hear from you all :D.



So, what's changed?:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
General Updates:
* Did a mass overhaul on the folder structure to make it more visual and user friendly.
* Generally tidied up code where I saw fit.
* Did away with the "Black" and "White" subfolders and put each .ini together prefixed with a "B-" or a "W-".
* Removed the "Happy Name Day" skin.
* Made a very handy Reminders skin.
* Fixed the issue with the System Information skin where it will cut of some of the text.
* Removed the word "vision" from the skin names, it felt inconsistent.
* Made the previous and next track buttons on the Foobar skin the correct image.
* Changed to colour of all "bar graphs" on the white skins to a salmon colour (HDD and Battery skins).
* Added a dot (typically on the top-right of each skin) to give the mouse something to right click on and grab when moving the skins around. Also, double clicking this dot will open the folder that the .ini is in for that skin.
* I've also given the option to make the dot either white or salmon by changing the name of one file ##read instructions below##.
* In the case of the CalendarDays skin I made it so double-clicking the day marker will open its .ini folder.
* Made the marker for the day on the Calendar skin the same salmon colour.
* Any skin with a "line graph" originally had two options. One where the space under the line had a slight shading and one where the space under the line was empty. I deleted all the one's with shading as I felt they looked less classy, however with enough demand I can put them back in.
* Combined the network and the network zOOm folders.

Date Skin Updates:
* Removed the extra unnecessary text explaining the order the date is written in.
* Changed the Date skin format so the day is on top and the complete date is on the bottom. Much nicer to view.

Clock Skin Updates:
* Removed the second hand from the clocks to make them look less cluttered. It has only been commented out in the .ini however so it can easily be brought back.
* Added hourly markings on the clocks.
* Made the analogue time in the clocks a little smaller and readable.
* Renamed the clock .ini's to be either 12 or 24.
* Changed the name of the hour, minute and second .png's to English.
* Modified the hour, minute and second hands slightly.

HDD Update:
* Removed the HDD2 and HDD3 folders and made the HDDx folder refer to drive G. This folder can be easily edited to refer to whichever drive you wish by replacing any occurences of "G:" with the drive you wish to refer to.
* Made the "bar graph" for the white skin a salmon colour.
* Made it so double clicking the bar graph will open up its .ini folder.

I know this skin hasn't been touched in a while, but does anyone know why I can't get the text file to pop up for the reminders? I click on the box like I'm supposed to and nothing happens :/

not to be picky, but just a suggestion - on the winamp foobar would it be possible to have a volume control ?
