You can't go wrong with something that goes with everything.

For some reason weather is not showing anything..... anyone an idea?

the weather channel stopped it

Weather is always displaying 'manchester' even after I changed my weather code... please help

The network speeds are showing wrong, how do i make it show precise?
Replace only the following measures from skin.ini file.
NOTE: My location code is CEXX0001 and also ignore the emoji's in this deviantart comment (Copy and paste the entire thing to your skin.ini file)
If the url doesn't get copied, this is the link without the http part:*&unit=&locale=en_US

RegExp=(?siU)<weather ver="(.*)">.*<dnam>(.*)</dnam>.*<lat>(.*)</lat>.*<lon>(.*)</lon>.*<sunr>(.*)</sunr>.*<suns>(.*)</suns>.*<zone>(.*)</zone>.*<tmp>(.*)</tmp>.*<flik>(.*)</flik>.*<t>(.*)</t>.*<icon>(.*)</icon>.*<moon>.*<icon>(.*)</icon>.*<t>(.*)</t>.*</moon>
FinishAction=!SetOption "MString" "Text" "%1°#unit# %2"


Formula=(MeasureF - 32) / 1.8

Is it possible to change "Disk Free" to "Disk Used?" I tried editing the MAIN file but "UsedDiskSpace" isn't working.
Awesome Skin....Simple yet Effective!
          Is there anyway to change the update rate of the email?

Can someone help me fix the weather bit? It says -18 degrees no matter what. Everything else is fine. I'm in Washington DC.
Thank you very much for this skin. I want to inform you that I've created my own Skin here, partially based on your skin. So some of the credits goes to you as the original creator.
Thanks a lot for your work, and i also hope that you'd update it so that the weather would function again.
Could you provide an update to the weather skin? As of 15 March 2016, Yahoo Weather APIs have changed and do not report the weather without an OAuth token.

i cannot get the music player to come up. what steps do  i need to take to get it to work?
when i open it, all my other skins just get deleted from the screen. now i have to arrange them again. 

EDIT: was my own fault. just uncheck the "apply included layout" and it wont happen to you.

How do you add text to the hard drive?
lysy1993lbn's avatar
You need to rename the drive directly in Windows Explorer
Black915's avatar
My C drive's name is Local Disk but it just say C, however my other drive is fine.
lysy1993lbn's avatar
Local Disk is applied to drives as standard by Windows. You need to name it yourself

for some reason i can't get Spotify to show up on the media player... any solutions?
lysy1993lbn's avatar
Have you set it up in settings file?
2Sad2Serious's avatar
Is it the "VAR" text document? Because I set "Player=Spotify" and "Playerexe=C:\Users\Kevin\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Spotify.exe" but the player still does not appear on my desktop. I tried changing it to iTunes and WMP and they seem to work...
lysy1993lbn's avatar
Have you tried updating Rainmeter itself?
2Sad2Serious's avatar
Yep i have the latest version installed. I'm suspecting its Spotify itself after I downloaded a newer version. Unfortunately I can't downgrade so I can't figure out if it's really Spotify that's the problem....
lysy1993lbn's avatar
Yeah.. It's probably Spotify that changed something and made it no longer compatible with NowPlaying plugin.
But just to be sure, can you try spotify with this skin?
