I am completly new to Rainmeter and loving your theme. But I have 2 question:
1. How can I change the weather location
2. How can I add my own apps to the launcher?
Kind regards and many thx :)!
FaradeyUA Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
1 - You need to edit variables: Tool for setting variables. Can be loaded from KotokoConfigurationTool Skin by clicking on "Variables" button

2 - There should be a button to switch to "edit mode" (if "right" launcher then it should be from right and vise versa)
blyndis Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2011
oki found it. Many thx for your help:)!

I want it to show my own URL (my favourites pic from this page), what i do is to go to the conf window of the skin, the i click on: "Your(Edit)" and set the RSS feed (i also tried just the common URL), after that i refresh all, but it doesn't seem to work, it just keep showing the most popular deviations and sometimes it just doesn't show a thing but a black pic. I don't know what i'm doing wrong, please help me out here. Thanks Againg

Ladomar Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2011
Мне вот порекомендовали Вас как очень толкового человека, который разбирается в Rainmeter
Я смотрю на ваши работы это действительно так.

Хотел вас попросить сделать всепогодник на gismeteo с
температурой на момент просмотра
по ощущениям
температурой на день
сила ветра, направление
температура воды, (летом актуально)
и упрощённой инфой на 2 дня вперёд

Надеюсь вы возмётесь за это не простое дело
И огромное спасибо за ваши труды, скины действительно красивые и функциональные
FaradeyUA Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Похоже я нашёл выход, но погода возможна только на сегодня и на завтра %|
FaradeyUA Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Как бы так понятней объяснить. Сделать его не проблема, но вот сделать его не нарушая правил сайта способа пока не вижу. Дело в том что я как то сам хотел сделать погодник используя этот сервис, но к сожалению не нашёл RSS ленты с которой я мог бы брать данные, опять таки не нарушая политики сайта. Ведь эта "лента" как раз таки и служит для того чтобы не нагружать основной сервер сайта. А если я сделаю напрямую, то последствия могут быть разными. В обще рад бы помочь но пока не знаю как :|

Позвольте спросить почему именно этот сервис?
и еще сгораю от любопытства, кто же Вам меня порекомендовал? ;)
Ladomar Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2011

а по поводу погоды на сегодня и на завтро это было бы замечательно, если с gismeteo. Еже хочется посмотреть на этот скин, хотя бы 1 глазком =))
FaradeyUA Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
В новой версии есть погодник [link]
В настройщике переменных выбрать WeatherSite и убедится что значение Gismeteo, если нет то установить на Gismeteo
Внимание язык комплекта должен быть русским или украинским, иначе опция не появится!
Ladomar Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2011
дай пожалуйста прямую ссылку на скачивание твоего скина для rainmeter
FaradeyUA Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
я извиняюсь но на 4 версию Kotoko скачивание не доступно...не решил еще будет ли...(старая версия по прежнему доступна)
а пока если можете нарисуйте примерный дизайн тог как скин должен выглядеть (про информативную часть я уже знаю) и я вам его сделаю лично для вас :)
просто нет времени на дизайном "топтаться"
Ladomar Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2011
было бы не плохо создать крупный скин. Я думаю это будет единственный скин в своём роде, т.к. я уже устал искать крупные скины. А веть это кландайк. это вся мелоч не информативна нужно напрягаться что бы что то увидеть на 1920х1080 на телевизоре подсоединенном как монитор
Если вы там присмотритесь, то вы увидите очень бледненький погодник, но он большой, и это очень много значит [link]
тут прикреплены эти 2 скина [link]
Я был бы вам очень признателен если бы вы сделали большие скины, что бы даже слепой увидел =)
FaradeyUA Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
у самого телик 32" 1920х1080, и я вас понимаю, по началу тоже не удобно было и не видно, но как ни странно привык и более того лучше стал видеть, знаю что звучит не реально, но зрение улучшилось)))
Идея больших скинов (а точнее фуллскрин) у меня в голове уже давно и даже разрабатывается, но вот в чём проблема - потребление ресурсов (памяти и времени процессора) возрастает, скажем в двое, эта цифра конечно же зависит от анимации и всего присущего там содержания, вот посмотрите концепт погоды [link]
к стати по поводу больших скинов вот обратите внимание [link] вариант покрупнее: [link] может быть они Вам понравятся и не нужно будет ничего делать
serch2103 Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2011
cool skin is great , but i have a problem with the winamp cover art,, i just did what you say whit .exe and without .exe a dont works for me,, i have windows 7 64bit

Best skin ever man, great job!. By the way i need some help with the temperture circles, they don't seem to work on my system... they just mark 0š (cpu, gpu, hdd and Amb)
i'm using windows 7 x64. Could you help me out with this. Thanks
FaradeyUA Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you :party:
First you need to run speedfan
Second if some of the temperatures aren't right, i mean not like they should be, then you need to change sensor number according to you system.
For example in HDD Temp.ini


SpeedFanNumber=3 sensor number

Is it possible to get this scroll function in iTunes too? Can you show me example skin if there's any?
FaradeyUA Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
are talking about scrolling a title in skin&? if so there is no better example than skin itself, what you can find here in this suite. If you don't understand how it works, just ask, maybe i could help you :)

Some of the files (about 20) were said to be known Trojan according to Vipre's definitions. [link]

I didn't read any of the other comments, but I have stability quirks and I like to keep them under control. Thanks for all of your efforts though.

Sunbelt Vipre is a very good AV program with strong support and it's light on resources.

This is not coincidence, the AV program said that it was a known threat. Which I would suppose means they have tested it in a sandbox or something and determined it was a Trojan or a form of. I know you are not putting Trojans out there and I am not implying that. I was unsure last night but I went through it all and from I can see, it is only flagging it because it is trying to get access to sensitive file information.
