can you update download link please?

xxenium's avatar

If you can't download try right-clicking on the download button and choose Open in new window

xxenium's avatar

Did you also type 0 in front of the dot when you entered the value for the size?

The value entered must be for example 0.58 not .58

GJFDHJJHRGHKK's avatar

👍😊 Yes it probably was that. makes sense. You may want to emphasize this in the settings. I had to shut down the computer forcibly. Anyway thanks for the skin

xxenium's avatar

Well ... when the user first opens the settings menu, he sees in the Size box what the entered value looks like (with 0 in front of the dot) and has to enter a similar value.

Anyway ... I'm glad the problem is solved and you like skin.

Hello @xxenium,

This skin would be perfect if you could fit in "Feels Like" temperature

xxenium's avatar

What is your location?

Depending on the length of the location name, I could enter "feels like" after location.

xxenium's avatar

Right click on the skin and choose Edit skin.

Go to the =Meters= section and add after [MeterLocation]:


[MeterFeelsLike]

Meter=String

MeasureName=MeasureFeelsLikeLabels

MeasureName2=MeasureFeelsLike

X=(#size#*285)

Y=(#size#*10)

W=(#size#*100)

H=(#size#*50)

FontSize=(#size#*14)

FontColor=#FontColor#

StringStyle=normal

StringEffect=SHADOW

FontFace=#FontFace#

StringAlign=center

FontEffectColor=#FontEffectColor#

AntiAlias=1

Text=%1 %2°


Then save, close, refresh skin

Hello @xxenium,

Thank you for your great job and the regular updates.

I have a problem with the display of accents. Do you have any idea to correct that?

Uft Ansi

Thank you.

Download the latest update and install the latest beta version of Rainmeter (see INFO at the beginning of the skin description)

cpittet's avatar

I have the latest Rainmeter program and your latest update of skin...

xxenium's avatar

Are you sure you have the latest BETA version of Rainmeter installed?

It works well for me:

PS:

....and "Tres nuageux" is displayed correctly:

cpittet's avatar

yes, I'm sure. I know that the problem is not at all with your skin because I have two PCs and on one everything is showing very well (sorry). but I thought you would have more ideas than me since you know the lines of code much better than I do. I looked on the side of Segoe fonts and the encoding of .INI and .INC (ansi and utf-8) but I do not understand ...

xxenium's avatar

Try the following steps:

Delete the skin from Documents \ Rainmeter \ Skins.

Right click on the Rainmeter icon in the taskbar and choose Refresh all.

Restart the PC.

Download and install the skin again

Hi Xxenium,

I checked again and indeed I didn't have the very latest Rainmeter beta, sorry.

Now it works fine. Thanks for taking time to help me. And sorry for the inconvenience.

Christian

xxenium's avatar

No problem.

I'm glad it worked out.

McOtto28's avatar

xxenium's avatar
