Monochromatic Redux



Monochromatic Redux


17 February 2010 Fixed a bug with the docks.

December 2009 Skin of the Month
Monochromatic Redux by ~Varelse42 gives your desktop an incredibly nice trashy look. It makes perfect use of high quality images and simultaneously fits any screen resolution which is quite rare. If you like that trashy, underground, graffiti style, this is probably the best suite you have come along with so far.

This is the promised sequel to my Monochromatic mini-suite I promised back in October. It's finally a full featured suite! Requires the latest version of Rainmeter

Systems bar
Weather bar
RSS Reader
iTunes Controller with lyrics
10 ft HUD

Extract and install into My Documents/Rainmeter/Skins. If you use any other directory, it will not work. Open up DefaultVariables.txt and change the variables to suit you.

To display the lyrics, add an exception to your firewall and antivirus. You will also need to uncheck Keep On Screen for the skins menu. It also doesn't like the song being changed frequently.

To change the height of the frame, open up DefaultVariables.txt located in Rainmeter\Skins\Redux and set Taskbar to whatever to want. To get rid of the space, set Taskbar to 0.

Requires Nircmd for the volume control.

Karmat111 for helping me beta test it.
