Clear for Rainmeter by ep3p Clear for Rainmeter by ep3p
In Windows 8 the font (Segoe) has changed, in my opinion, to worse. The skins won't appear exactly as in the image.

Rainmeter skin. It can change its color automatically to a modified invert color to Aero color. It's thought to be used with a program like Aero Adjuster or Aura, which adjusts Aero color to fit the wallpaper color, great for rotating wallpapers.

The player skin uses the NowPlaying plugin, some players need a special plugin or activate an option, check it at the link.

Used fonts (included with Office, they are copyrighted): Segoe WP Light, Segoe UI Light, Segoe UI Symbol

There are some settings in each .ini file to modify the skins as you wish.

The clock has a translation to Spanish in the .ini file.

The code for the automatic color is separated in a .inc and .lua files, feel free to use them in other skins.

If the configcolor skin appears each time you start Windows, right click and "Unload skin".


Update 24/07/12:

- The progress bar can be clicked to select the position of the track.
- Problem with Play/Pause through CAD fixed.


If there's any problem just comment :boing:

BTW, I didn't have Segoe WP Light installed on Win 7. Found it here: forum.xda-developers.com/showt…

Why do you think I put a link in the description? Was TL;DR for you?

That's funny. I read it, but somehow not realized, that these were links. I have Office 2010 and Segoe WP Light is not there.

It's automatic if you use iTunes I think.

I just created two skins now. One with title, another one with controls. How do I switch them on mouseover?
Reply
:iconep3p:
ep3p Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013
It was very difficult, in PlayerMeter.inc there is a meter image called OverTitle.
As you pass the mouse over, this meter activates or desactivates other meters that are in certain groups (Buttons and Title),
it's invisible and as this meter is written after all the meters in the file it's always in front of the rest of meters, this is necessary.
All in the same skin.

And I don't know why I have written DynamicVariables=1 two times :S
Nowadays I don't use Rainmeter very much.
Feel free to use this skin and add the rating if you want :)

What does this expression mean?
Substitute="^(.+$)":". \1"
Reply
:iconep3p:
ep3p Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013
I think that what the first " " contains it detects any string until the end, and then puts the · and a space before it (\1 is for what is detected).
It uses the Regular Expression Options through  Perl Compatible Regular Expressions.
Here's a little guide better explained than the last year u_u

Maybe you have already figured, I would change the attribute TitleSize player_clear_3_long.ini and measure it in the screen xD, there was a relation in one of the official rainmeter webs, sorry.

Open the Rainmeter window.

In the skins, load with right-click the skin "configcolor.ini" (it's inside the folder "Clear").

Click on "(list of colors)", in the browser you will see the color black has the values 0 0 0 for RGB.

Click on "choose the color", in the notepad you will see some instructions, just change it to "Color=0,0,0".

Save the file, click on "apply" in the config color skin, and unload this skin with right-click.

If you have any problem, just tell me, don't worry.

Hi there, i'm using your NowPlaying and I like it, but I've got a little problem with it.

My wallpaper is black so I changed the color to white (Color=255,255,255,510) it's good but I can't see "the advance bar", look :

[link]

What must I change in the lua file to make it less white ? I tryed to change the "510" but it reduces the brightness of everything, not good...

Thanks :)
Reply
:iconep3p:
ep3p Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2012
Sorry, my fault, just delete the 510.

And i think the maximum value for the transparency is also 255.

How to change the language to Spanish days?

Abre Rainmeter.

Busca "clock_clear.ini" en las skins (Clear > Clock).

Click derecho, selecciona "Editar".

En el texto hay un apartado en MEASURES and METERS llamado [mDate].

La línea "Substitute="January":"Enero","February":"Febrero"... " empieza por ";".

Borra este signo, guarda el archivo y refresca la skin.

";" hace el programa no tenga en cuenta y ejecute la línea en la que está.

Don't worry.

In the config color, the option "black or white" use the color you have for your taskbar, and this means the color of the skin changes automatically to black or white.

If you want white (or another color), click on "choose the color", in the text it appears there are instructions.

For white, change to "Color =255,255,255,255" or "Color=ffffffff", and save, then you can "apply" for see the change.

You can search colors in "(list of colors)".

Hope it helps :)

Ok.

Open Rainmeter.

Right-click over the folder "Clear" (where the skins are), select "open folder".

Delete in this folder "Color.lua","ColorMeasure.inc" and "configcolor.ini"

Replace them with these (extract them and put them where the old files were).

Go to Rainmeter window and click "Refresh all".

The skins of Clear should appear in white, the color is "255,255,255,255", use this format preferably instead of ffffffff.

Success?

The plugin NowPlaying of Rainmeter for Spotify doesn't support many things. Sorry.

"Spotify: PlayerName=Spotify
Partially supported. Only the types ARTIST/TRACK and the bangs Play, PlayPause, Stop, Next, and Previous are available."

:S ok, a few questions:

Which Windows and Rainmeter version do you have? last version(2.4 beta (r1674))?

Is it the first time do you have this skin?

When you refresh the skin with the error (right click), what happens?

Do you get the error after pushing a particular button or after moving the mouse over the skin or no matter whatever you do?

I supose not, but have you modified the files PlayerMeasure.inc and PlayerMeter.inc inside folder (Clear>Player)?

Great skin, loving it. One problem though: if I click on the 'shuffle' or 'repeat' buttons, they change and then I can't change them again. It just keeps on repeating or shuffling. I use foobar2000.
thanks for the great work

:iconep3p:
ep3p Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2012
As foobar doesn't separate the options Shuffle or Repeat as you said, I've changed the skin so when you click repeat or shuffle, the other button returns to appear desactivated. But I don't know how to fix the main problem, I haven't been able to find a command that puts the Playback to "Default" in foobar :( so if you want this mode I supose you will have to select it in the foobar window.

I absolutely adore this skin but i cant manage to get the player to work with Media Player Classic.

I read and tried what you explained to Qlimax but it still doesnt seem to work for me.

I can make it work, though it doesn't work very well through WLM (the title shows the artist, not the song; once you press a button the title doesn't show again...) :(

I think it must be the option of enable 'Send Now Playing information to MSN Messenger', I should have mention it in the description, sorry. Tell me if it works for you.

:iconep3p:
ep3p Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012
I'm gonna try Media Player Classic to see the problem, I supose you have activated this:

Media Player Classic: PlayerName=WLM
Partially supported through the WLM interface. Note that the 'Send Now Playing information to MSN Messenger' option must be enabled in the player's settings (View -> Options -> Tweaks).

I have the last rainmeter (2.3.0.1471). Anyway, rename the extension of the file to .zip (clear_for_rainmeter_by_ep3p-d57m9sw.rmskin >>> clear_for_rainmeter_by_ep3p-d57m9sw.zip), open it, inside the folder "Skins" is the folder "Clear", copy it to the folder where you have your skins in rainmeter and it should work, just refresh Rainmeter and select the skins.
