As someone else has mentioned already, this skin can get "stuck" on imperial or metric (in my case metric). Clicking on either in the settings skin does change the value in UserSettings.inc and the skin does refresh, however nothing changes. I tried playing around in the code and changing anything and everything I could find related to that, but nothing worked.
The metric/imperial switch is not working for me, It shows F° and mph no matter what. I tried to change the code but I'm a beginner and I couldn't fix it. Would you be so kind to help me figure out a fix for this problem? Thank you, loved this weather application! It's the only one that worked for me. 🍻
Great Skin with awesome information functions. Tip for new users: if the skin is crashing Rainmeter like it was for me for the first couple times, try loading the settings skins or going to the settings document and change the scaling to 75%. It feels like that shouldn't fix it, but kinda works for me. Also the alert banner disappears, which is nice to draw attention to it when it reappears, but it surprised me when I first got an alert, and threw off my design a little bit. I think I agree with this design decision, but it was a surprise. I am going to go overboard and add time and date under the location as well as the date numbers for the week forecast (something like Th|5), not sure if I am going to try to get this information from the website for better integration and sharing or just use Rainmeter's functions to make it easy on myself. The parsing, collapsing, UI elements, the settings menu all look like it took a tremendous amount of effort and time. Thank you, and I look forward to learning more about Rainmeter/parsing/masking through your skin as I personalize it!
This is the *only* nice looking skin that also includes "feels like" information and lets me scale it to fit my other widgets. It'd be boss if the main temperature was the "feels like" value versus displaying it underneath, but maybe if I fiddle with it I can make this happen. Cheers!
I'm brand new to rainmeter - installed it literally 10 minutes ago - and I'm struggling to understand the colour customization of this skin? I've played around with a few number combos but all I'm getting are different shades of green despite no green in my background. Could you give a quick rundown of how the colour customization works? Thanks!
Someone found how to prevent chameleon crashing Rainmeter. ContextAwareColors=1 crashes rainmeter. Setting to 0 stops crashing. Right click on skin choose edit skin.
Until Socks has a chance to look into "ContextAware" crashes, you can use an earlier version by replacing the Chameleon.dll installed in Rainmeter.
This has to be done manually because Rainmeter will not overwrite a newer version of a plugin if an older version is in the installation package.
You will find all versions of Chameleon you have installed in your "Rainmeter\Skins\@Vault\Plugins\Chameleon" folder.
First exit Rainmeter.
Open the vault folder in explorer and select a lower numbered folder (I went to '18.104.22.168' but '22.214.171.124' should also prevent crashes).
Open the bit version folder that matches your system (most newer systems will be 64bit).
Copy the "Chameleon.dll" file from that folder.
For standard Rainmeter installations,
navigate in explorer to "C:\Users\(YourUserName}\AppDAta\Roaming\Rainmeter\Plugins" and paste the copied file; replace the existing file.
For portable installs, the "Plugins" folder will be in the same folder you created when you installed Rainmeter.
That's it. Restart Rainmeter. All skins designed to work with Chameleon should no longer crash
