Right-click the skin > "Edit skin". I allow the graphs to be easily resized using the user customizable values near the top, but resizing text and spacing requires delving into the code further down. Adjust the values for [sNum]'s FontSize and [sGraph]'s Y.

This skin has no GUI, you must use the Rainmeter system tray menu to interact with it.


Right-click on the Rainmeter system tray icon > Snow > Unload skin

You can drag and drop Lua files into Notepad or a text editor for coding like Notepad++, Visual Studio Code, or Sublime. I prefer VS Code myself. Just don't use MS Word or any rich text editor that may add formatting that can break code compilation.

I had put some thought into how that might be done. The only difficult part would be sorting the randomly arranged vertices of any model so that, when they are attached to FFT bands, they are near others attached to similar frequency bands. If you think of the set of FFT bands (arranged from low to high frequencies) as a string, and you want to wrap that string around a model without crossing itself, the obvious solution that comes to mind is a helix. The vertices could be converted to cylindrical coordinates to make that sorting easier.

...Anyway, after putting a lot of thought into it, how I imagined the result would look didn't seem impressive enough to be worth the effort, so I abandoned the idea.

But you can see how a very basic implementation of this idea looks by converting Hologram into an audio visualizer.

In theory, a developer could use Libpcap, the network packet capture library that WireShark uses, to get the IPs that GW2 connects to and ping them.

I did a trace route (command prompt: tracert) of map IPs and see that they are hosted on Amazon EC2. Most of the entire AWS is configured to not respond to pings for security reasons. I can't ping any closer than where my ISP connects to AWS. AWS is vast, so there is no meaningful way to get even an approximate ping of the servers unless Anet allows it.
