Hello ,

This is a great theme. Are there anymore like it that have world clocks built into them. Thanks.

Any way to increase the number of emails displayed from 6..?
CondeVlad Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2016
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
The skin is updated...
dwh2o13 Featured By Owner May 14, 2016
Thank You!  Uninstalled and then reinstalled.  All is well.
Xavier84 Featured By Owner May 14, 2016
Hi and thank yery much for you nice work.

But I have a little Problem. If I install Glasses, there is no Weather-window for me. Did I do something wrong?

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.
Xavier84 Featured By Owner May 14, 2016
Thank you very much.
VClouds Featured By Owner May 14, 2016
Your welcome
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.
larry1952 Featured By Owner May 13, 2016
I consider this a "must have" on my desktop at all times. Thank you for the fix. Works great. I was so scared it was broken for good!
Sapphica69 Featured By Owner May 13, 2016
Awesome, thx for the fix.  All working again! Have been using this skin for over a year and it's been great.
dwh2o13 Featured By Owner May 13, 2016
Okay... Classic "in a hurry"  mistake here.  I failed to pay close attention to your very well written directions and did not apply this:

"...and make sure the day number at the end of the line match with the line you replace..."

Just pasted your given replacement url with f=1 at the end for each day. Guess that's why I only get current conditions??
I apologetically ask for your advice to amend this stupid mistake.  

Really enjoying this skin..
t-a-m-i Featured By Owner May 13, 2016
yep, another one here. Can we get this fixed? TODAH RABAH.
Frog675 Featured By Owner May 13, 2016
I am also having the same issue as dwh2o13 with the weather skin.  If there's any update on how to fix, I'd really it appreciate it.
dwh2o13 Featured By Owner May 12, 2016
All of the sudden I am not getting any weather.  The weather skin just says.."Please Standby Loading Weather..."  Any ideas why this might be happening. I've been using this for awhile now and it has been working flawlessly.  
Comatoasted2 Featured By Owner May 13, 2016
The URL's have changed. Edit and Replace "" with "" ....Example: "…"

ACCPresidentLB Featured By Owner May 12, 2016
Hello VClouds,

First off, let me say this a awesome theme! Don't use all the components, but I did mix them & edit to fit my needs and code & settings features are awesome and easy to use and adjust. (This is the actual Theme I use. Sorry for double post!)
New to editing Rainmeter skins, and came across an unique situation that would make my slideshow awesome. My current background pic has a PC monitor in it and it is slightly angled, therefore its more of a trapezoid than a rectangle. The code has has X, Y, H (height), W (width) values naturally, and I have adjusted H & W for proper sizing, but can't figure out what X & Y are or do, or how I can adjust or create slight angles to make my slideshow fit perfectly on monitor screen. Would you please advise me if and how I can do so?

Thanks so much in advance!
Foaryon Featured By Owner Edited May 6, 2016  Hobbyist Photographer
How i can change the maximum of left/right coordinates? My limit is 1690 <.<

I would love to change the 1690 to 1706 or something <.< But i can't
VClouds Featured By Owner May 6, 2016
Uncheck 'Keep on screen'.
Foaryon Featured By Owner May 6, 2016  Hobbyist Photographer
And this will fix the problem with automatic "go back to the old position" too?
Like if i se it to 1706, its back to 1690 after restart the PC <.<
VClouds Featured By Owner May 7, 2016
It should stay in the position you put it.
Vi0l3nc3 Featured By Owner May 3, 2016
Don't suppose there is anyway to switch the data for drives around to have it read Free/Used? A minor gripe, but it feels off to me.
droogiee Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2016
hello and thank you for the great plugin! just wondering why all of a sudden my TOP PROCESS is just staying at 0%? and showing no process either... was just working a week ago (have not tweaked rainmeter or anything else for that matter) windows updates is all that has happened in the mean time.. i have this running on other machines as well and no issues there... i have tried updating rainmeter to the latest version, that did nothing... re-installed your plugin, that did nothing... everything is working great, just TOP PROCESS is not displaying any name and is at 0%
any ideas on what next i can try? thanks a bunch
dwh2o13 Featured By Owner Edited Apr 3, 2016
Absolutely new to Rainmeter and skins.  This skin is absolutely beautiful! And so far very easy to use for a newbie like me.  Thank you so much for the impressive work my friend.  Extremely excited to be able to customize my desktop using your skin.  
VClouds Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2016
Thank you! glad you like it.
Tetrakub Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2016
Thank you for the skin :-)
I have a issue. I did not modified the skin, but the daylight saving time is not working.
I have followed the instruction (1 or 0 to activate or deactivate) but the daylight saving time is not active.
I have noticed this because France and UK just enforced daylight saving time this weekend...
Does anyone have the same issue ?

Hello Guys i have a question about the RSS Glasses.
I have disabled the Autoswitch option. My question is. I will set the 4th Page as default. Thats means if i refresh they should stay on the 4th Feed not on the 1st one. Any easy solution for this? If not than i have to change anything from 1st Feed <-> 4 Feed  :(
KromaXamorK Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2015
It's not an issue with Windows 10 but with The Weather Channel, a solution is provide by Wedge72's post on this page :…
larry1952 Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2015
Thanks. The issue fixed itself overnight. It must have been something with The Weather Channel.

I am suddenly (after updating to the latest Windows 10) having the following error when updating the weather app - Webparser: RegExp matching error (-1) - - Same error appears on Rss Feed - Please help as I absolutely love this suite of tools. Thanks -
