Rainmeter: [link]

Modified 10ft HUD Clock
Times New Yorker font from Dafont.com: [link]


08.08.2010 - Updated to Rainstaller version. You must have the Pileus Suite already installed.


Seen in this screenshot: [link]

Preview background file: [link]
...which is a remastering of the original: [link]


This is my first ever Rainmeter upload! Someday, when I'm all grown up, this might become a full Rainmeter suite. Who knows?

Enjoy! ;)

Hi! Thx a lot! One question. If i switch the hour format from 12 to 24 there is not enough place ^o)?
Where can i change the clock width? Cheers :)))

Oh, I'm sorry about that. You have to go into the clock config's code and adjust the X= setting. Just add a few dozen pixels to the setting.

ok... after on hour of frustration i closed rainmeter and started it up again. now it works lol. saving the variables file and refreshing the skins isn't enough. you need to restart rainmeter to change the font

First of all congrats...
this clock, like the rest of your suite is amazing :D

I have a little question: is there a way to switch between AM/PM to 24 hours time?
Also, what should I do to create an italian localization? You know, day of the week, month and so on. I'm really new to rainmeter so I still need to learn a lot.

Cheers! :)

im a littler newer at rainmeter then you are haha...the problem is that it isnt turning out in the times new yorker font, its just the default font...i do have rainmeter 1.1 and i downloaded the font....it still isnt working, what do?

You downloaded the font- did you install it into your Fonts folder? Go check right now and make sure it's in there. It might be under a slightly different name. You should be able to find it in your word processor if it's installed correctly. ;)

If it's already in your Folder, then check the name that it's listed by. Go into the .ini file for the clock and check to see if the name of the font there matches the name that your computer has the font listed under.

If it's certainly installed, and you can use it in your word processor, and it's also certainly listed by name in the .ini file, then I have no idea what the problem is, and you might want to go onto the rainmeter forums and ask some smarter people for help... ;)

nope, still isnt working, thanks though is there anyway to send you a screen shot of what i have, to see if i have done anything wrong? thanks man

You can take a screen shot by setting up everything on your screen like you want it, and then pushing the "prt sc" button, or "print screen". Depending on your computer, you might have to push it and another button at the same time, like "ctrl" or "fn" (I have an HP and I have to use the fn=prt sc combo). Then it's copied to your clipboard, and you have to open up paint or PS or something and paste it there, save it as whatever you like, and then you can email it to me. My email is on my profile. ;)

Try to show your fonts folder with the Times New Yorker font highlighted, and I'll see if I can figure anything out. I already know what's in the .ini, so you don't have to open that... ;)

Good job! Sorry- I didn't mean to offend. Looking back, I should have known you were just asking for permission to email me your screenshot, but somehow it got into my brain as "how do I do it?"

Sorry again, and thanks! Your desktop looks great!
