I really enjoy this skin, but I live in a pretty humid place and I'm wondering if there's any way to display the humidity for the area, as well as the temperature? I'm not a coder, but when I look at the .ini, it appears to have that capability. Am I just missing something?

How do I get the weather skin to update more frequently? I see the refresh rate in the variables file but I'm not sure if increasing or decreasing the number is what I need to do. Ideally I'd like everything to refresh every 30 minutes.

Is there any way to change the website where it gets the weather information? I don't mind weather.com and I'm not sure how accurate it is, but I would prefer something like accuweather if you are able to code for it or tell me how to change it?

Very nice skin! Love the design. However, like others, the weather usually does not work for me. Refreshing it does not appear to help either. Very unfortunate, but when it works, it's great.

The Weather never seems to load for me. I've changed the variable in the variables file, but it's hit or miss for if it will load for me. Most of the time I get no info, occasionally a single day's forecast, and rarely all of the info. Any idea what I can do to get it working for me?

Figured it out. Seems the Weather stream doesn't play well with Firefox. When FF is running the Weather skin freaks out. If you shut it down and refresh the skin it works fine.

-Open the .ini that you want to modify (every .ini has to be modified separately)
-Update the following Sections with this code:


[Variables]

TranslatedDays="Monday":"Montag","Tuesday":"Dienstag","Wednesday":"Mittwoch","Thursday":"Donnerstag","Friday":"Freitag","Saturday":"Samstag","Sunday":"Sonntag"


[MeasureDay+2]
Measurelugin
Pluginlugins\WebParser.dll
Url=[MeasureForcastToday+2]
StringIndex=1
Substitute=#TranslatedDays#



NOTE: [Variables] and [MeasureDay+2] sections already exist, all you have to do is just add the lines that you don't have.

Btw, I tried to put the 8 digit numbers but it doesn't seem to be working. I mean, it doesn't show the weather. For example, these are my digit: SPXX0043
I copy them in the variable.txt but when I restart the rainmeter, unfortunately, there is no result. Can you help me? :)

I really like your Theme, especially in combination with the Disk Dock.

But since I'm not a programer/scripter/etc. I have some problems (sadly) :(

Well, I'm waiting that "Kerelon" responds to my message (I'm also german, so I want everything in german :P)
As long as he responds my "weather-problem" isn't bad. But sadly I'm not able to change the names of the months.
I tried to make a variable "TranslatedMonths=" just like you explained to Kerelon, but I'm failing to make something like [MeasureDay+2] :D
Maybe you can help me out? Pleeease ? :)

Furthermore I have seen this picture on the net:

Since I saw this picture I couldn't stop to search for these Rainmeter skins and I finally found them :D But sadly, these Icons aren't avaiable in your "Disk Dock" package. Do you have a clue where I could find them?

:iconextracycle:
ExtraCycle Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2011
Hi Takihake,

I'm currently very busy in college so I don't do anything related with Rainmeter.
Icons for Disk Dock - you have to make them yourself (using photoshop or something simillar).
Translation - read Rainmeter help on substitute, you should be able to figure it out :)
One thing to note for the weather script, many things relate and rely on each other so read through it slowly and find out what goes where. There are only two types of "things" in the script, MEASURES or METERS. Measures measure info, Meters display the info that Measures give them.

Hope this helps a little bit, good luck :)

Im trying to edit the weather so that it only shows the current one located at the top. I dont really have a need for the rest of the forecasting tools. I thought I had it figured out, but after a bit the whole thing glitched and then it didnt show any weather at all. rather than break it again I think its safer to just ask for your help XD

I made it work (got the trial version of photoshop).
I want to make my own skin (the idea is to make an arc that follows along the top edge of the Disk Dock that would be used to monitor the battery) do you have any suggestions on how to go about doing this or if not maybe do you know someone that can help me?

Im in the process of personalizing the disk to my preferences and all but now the firefox icon i put in place of the chrome icon is too large. How do scale it down? fyi i do not have photoshop, what do?
Reply
:iconextracycle:
ExtraCycle Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2011
You will have to scale it down with some sort of software. There is an option to scale down the images in rainmeter itself but when I tried that the icons turn out very ugly - jagged edges and bad quality... I will include a firefox icon in the new release of Disk Dock ;)

:iconcyrdaan:
CyrDaan Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011
I found a bug you might have overlooked or might not have and can tell me how to fix it; when you open the My Documents Tab on the Disk Dock the tab is below the Info. I just started with rainmeter and i love it! I have your disk dock and rota as my main skins, so keep up the great work.
Reply
:iconextracycle:
ExtraCycle Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011
Oh yes, I know this happens, it all depends on the functionality you need out of it, for example I use my extra mouse buttons to change the Z position of Disk Dock (bring on top or on bottom) so no issue for me. For you however to fix this just open the Disk Dock Token.ini file (or the other ones) and, at the top, under [Rainmeter] section you will see that one of the lines starts with a ";" symbol. Remove the symbol and save the file. Refresh Disk Dock. Done ;)
