Awesome work! My favourite skin now^^

I have one question, though: Is it possible to place anything at the very top of the desktop? I've already disabled "Keep on screen", but everything I try to place at the very top gets pushed a bit underneath. That's the only thing that bugs me a bit. It would be great if you could tell me what exactly I have to change in the code^^

I'm not sure, maybe your monitor settings are off so the desktop goes off of the screen?  Is your taskbar at the top ? if so set it to autohide...

Nah, my taskbar has been on the bottom. Anyway, I solved the problem a while ago, since that problem occured with some other skins aswell. I didn't really try that method with Late Night, but I just had to work around with the X and Y coordinates in the config files, or with the pictures itself.
Thanks anyway!

This is a fantastic skin, but I have a question: Is there a way to change the icons for the app launchers? I'm trying to change the VLC icon to a Winamp one.

:icondigitalspectrum:
DigitalSpectrum Featured By Owner May 21, 2013
Yes for sure! Just put the path to the image in the settings.txt file, or in the settings skin click on the "AppX" part.
I am trying to think of a good way to make it more obvious in the settings skin..

Thanks! For icons, what is the dimension and the font you used?
Reply
:icondigitalspectrum:
DigitalSpectrum Featured By Owner May 21, 2013
The dimension is 180x30 or anything 6x1. There was no font they're just images I found on google and edited to size.

I worded that oddly, my bad. I meant the font for the skin in general.

DigitalSpectrum Featured By Owner May 22, 2013
You could just easily change it in the settings.txt file. But it may throw some of the spacing off...

The skin is inside a zip folder in the skin's folder. Also to move the window around you click the 1 pixel wide border to drag it. And of coarse to control vlc with it you will have to add the vlc-libcad plugin for VLC

DeepAimee Featured By Owner May 23, 2013
THX DS for your reply ! Have VLC 2.06 with your Skin (ok),vlc-libcad is in Plugin/Notify-Folder of VLC (ok) and activated CAD-NowPlaying in VLC-Prefs (ok),have select VLC as my Player in your Settings,but i canīt control the Player with the "NowPlaying" Skin,nothing happens.What did i do wrong ?
Have a good Day !

One thought is that the plugin is 32-bit only, so if your using 64-bit vlc it won't work.

Is it just my skin or any nowplaying skin?

DeepAimee Featured By Owner May 23, 2013
Just this minute i found the problem by coincidence ;-) the "mistake" was,that i installed the latest Rainmater(beta)as portable installation,not as full. :-) after re-installed as full,all runs correctly ! unbelievable !
Anyway,thanks again DS for your support and keep on with this certainly hard but also prof. work!I love it !
Have a nice weekend !

It is VLC playing a video. I included the vlc skin so it will integrate with the theme, and it can be controlled by the NowPlaying skin.

I just wanted to say Thank You for creating this skin, I really love it.

I do have one question though, is there a way to change the pictures for the launcher buttons? I ask because I don't use Chrome or Firefox (I use Opera) and I would like the button to match what it is set to launch.

:icondigitalspectrum:
DigitalSpectrum Featured By Owner May 10, 2013
Yes definitely, you can add the path to the picture in the settings.txt file or in the settings skin click on the "AppX" part.

Hi DS, I added this to the volume-wide skin... Maybe you will find it useful.
[Setting]
meter=image
imagename=#@#\Images\Volume\settings.png
ImageTint=255,255,255,160
x=12
y=62
W=16
H=16
leftmouseupaction=!execute ["#CURRENTPATH#\sound"]

:icondigitalspectrum:
DigitalSpectrum Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2013
Hey! It's great to see you are learning and tweaking on your own. The !execute is not need anymore, so it would just be leftmouseupaction=["#CURRENTPATH#\sound"]
Did you make another copy of the settings.png? Cuz you could just link to the one that's already there in #@#\Images\settings.png.

And I'm curious to know what this actually does? It looks like it just opens a folder called sound inside the ini's directory.

Late Night seems to get sweeter and sweeter... I still believe it is the best layout I have seen >3

If I can just make a small criticism:
I liked the previous slideshow better! It was nice to be able to stop it when you wanted! (or I'm still able to, but I haven't found out how, in which case, sorry!)

Other than that, your skin is really impressive, my desktop looks nice, and all the ameliorations from v.1.2 to v.1.4 are really impressive.

Thank you!

DigitalSpectrum Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013
Thank you!

Actually, I wanted it to be able to pause on a picture when you saw it, but I couldn't get it to work. It would stop the animation then do 1 more update so it would stop on the NEXT picture, not on the current one. That is why I removed it....

I will throw it on my todo list and work on it some more to try to get it right.

Yea, I added 2 variables to the Gmail skin and it is great a BIG Thank You!!! :)

I have noticed that it does not seem to matter what number I use for the wifi interface I still get 0%, so what am I doing wrong?

Why will it not recognize my CD drive or the micro SD, :(

There are some volume control bars out there but most are not smooth functioning or match the thin modules you have on your layout, any chance of adding this too.

On a side note I have been looking for spotlight that I could place over each of the thin modules and would light up when you hover over a module or select a module,. Of course I am way to new to Rainmeter to do this myself or even who to ask. Could you help or direct me? :)

How do I get dA to tell me when you have something new, added or updated.? Once Again I really love you work, and look forward to much more.

About the microSD, it may just need the option IgnoreRemovable=0 on the measures to show USB drives, I will add this in the next version.

I'm not sure about the wifi interface and drives, those sound like questions for the Big Boys on the rainmeter forums.

I have some volume bars I made laying around, that's a great idea I may add one.

The hover spotlight idea is probably doable, it would probably be an overlay image, or a changing image that gets fired with a MouseOverAction / MouseLeaveAction on each skin, I may look into this if I could come up with a decent image to use.

I believe to get notified you can go to my profile page and click the Watch button at the top right.

Hi DS, as I may have mentioned I found that "Late Night" by far the best skin I have enjoyed, Thank You. Besides the Gmail request, I hope there is a way to get rid of the Rainmeter and Objectdock's that I am using. They take up to much resources. Your launcher is very good but my docks have 50+ links, most are urls, LOL. So is it possible to make 2 or 3 rows, horizontally. I am sure there might be something out there in rainmeter land, but not with your style. Hopeful in Missouri, Andy :)

Thank you!! I would love to add a super launcher for you, but it would make the settings skin alot bigger.

I suggest modifying the skin yourself to your liking, it wouldn't be very hard as launcher skins are pretty simple. It would be a great beginner learning project!

Or you could just use the launcher for programs, and use something else (like bookmarks) for your URL's.

I'm very sorry but I don't think I will be adding more than 20 launcher spaces.
