How do I get system uptime and network stats to reset? I have tried unload the skin, shutting off Rainmeter completely (then restarting), and full system reboots and shutdowns and my numbers won't reset.
VClouds Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2017
To reset the network stats click the "Total Upload/Download" text.
The system uptime should reset when you fully shutdown and restart your PC. maybe you have the windows hybrid sleep function enabled?

Wow, great work!

Daedalusmbj Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2017
Love this skin, use a lot of stuff from it daily but one thing that's getting to me and I can't seem to find the control for in code:

Is it possible to get the slideshow to stop doing random choices from the gallery folder I've set and just do them in order of filename?
catemg Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2017
Love the skin! On the notes, how do I change the size of the text box? I need more lines of text visible. Thanks for the help!!

It also will not open gmail when I click on the link.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

THANKS A LOT " VCLOUD" MAN YOUR IDEA WORKED . its perfectly working now.

i was working on it for long but couldn't think of that. thanks for the deleting idea of loading. 

thanks again....
Rainuser7 Featured By Owner Edited Dec 4, 2016
I live in India the skin of weather shows  my city and temperature but the message " please stand by loading weather " is not going away. i mean its the glass panel so i can see my city and the temperature but this image of " loading weather" which should go away is not going away along with the logo of rainmeter & iohelix and so on. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks for reading.
VClouds Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2016
If the "loading weather" text wont go away it means that for some reason is not sending some major part of the weather information.

You can manually edit and delete the entire LOADING section in the bottom part of the INI file (right click the skin > edit skin)

Finally updated to Windows 10 as most of the kinks I had with it were ironed out by recent patches. Unfortunately, one of those kinks remains - older fonts designed for sub-12pt size don't render correctly compared to W7. As a result, I decided to go looking for a new Rainmeter setup and I really do enjoy this one. I only have one question, as I'd rather not go in and break things.. is there a quick and dirty way to disable the shadows so Snap to Edges actually goes to the borders of the loaded skins instead of the edges of the shadows? I prefer to keep all that information in one corner of my second monitor so I can see everything at a glance.
VClouds Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2016
You cant disable the shadows easily but you can uncheck the "snap to edges" and "keep on screen" settings in the settings context menu and put the skins where you want them on the screen.
mg979 Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2016
Thank you for this great theme, I wanted to ask you if I can reuse/modify some elements for a Rainmeter sidebar I was working on. I started making it for myself but I'm making a lot of changes so I thought I could post it when it's finished, if you grant me the permission. Thanks anyway and great work
VClouds Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2016
Sure you can use it, just dont forget to add credits to the description.
mg979 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2016
Thank you, I posted it in the Rainmeter forums (no file yet)…
VClouds Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2016
mg979 Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2016
Thanks, it still needs a lot of work for the right sidebar and a launcher, I'll make them little by little

Weather stopped again. RegExp matching error (-1). I already changed the location code from (now it's a 10 digit not 8 anymore).

Really love your skin, hope there's a fix soon.

Best regards.
EternalJedi Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2016
Update: may have been something on's end. I didn't change anything, but now the panel's updating correctly
CondeVlad Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2016
Weird, now it's working again. I've change nothing.
EternalJedi Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2016
Same here, getting: "WebParser: RegExp matching error (-1)"

Not exactly sure what the issue is, though.
mmowoa Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2016
RegExp matching error (-1) How to fix it?
jazde86 Featured By Owner Edited Jul 13, 2016
Hello, is there any way to format the date string at the Weather skin?

1. From "Jul 13" to "13. Juli".
2. From "Updated at 7/12/16 2:45 PM" to "Aktualisiert am 12.07.2016 14:45".
3. From "Full Moon" it should be "Vollmond", not "Voll Mond" - how to handle this, as u are using two strings there and the "Moon" to "Mond" is used by other strings.
4. "DAY FORECAST" and "NIGHT FORECAST" are not translated at "Today" other days are fine.

Thank you VClouds, for taking the time to fix the weather skin. Using the Glasses theme on 2 Windows 7 machines and golly gee, I missed the weather.

Really love this theme for it's clean look and complete mix of monitors and reports.

Long time fan!
BlueWarlock Featured By Owner May 14, 2016
Thank you very kindly for fixing the weather. This is the only skin I will use for Rainmeter. If you have something you like and it works, why change it? Best skin around. God bless.

VClouds Featured By Owner May 14, 2016
Right click one of the glasses skins. in the popup menu click Glasses\GlassesVCWeather2\ and choose one of the weather variants.

VClouds Featured By Owner May 13, 2016
I will update and fix the skin when I have time. in the mean time you can edit it yourself and replace the line:


^ Delete the "_" after http ^



^ Delete the "_" after http ^

Do this for all the days in the skin and make sure the day number at the end of the line match with the line you replace.
