Hi! Downloaded Glasses yesterday, great piece of work! Cuddos to you!
Xatarax Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2015
Hi VClouds, the moon phase informations don't show up anymore. Can you fix this problem or tell how to fix it ? Thanks a lot.
gregory2001 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2015
"Current Conditions" are not showing up periodically.  Is there anything I can do?  Thanks.
Fleasir Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2015  New member
Rainmeter newbie here - tried a few skins and was disappointed until I hit on yours - excellent work!
It was astoundingly easy to completely customize the looks I wanted.
VClouds Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2015
Thank you! glad you like it.
skackt Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2015
OMG It's F*cking Amazing bro!.. I really love it :D thank you very Much!
VClouds Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2015
Thank you!
gregory2001 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2014
Lately, the Current Condition and Today Condition has been blank.  Any reason for this?  Thanks.
VClouds Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2014
I see no problem, what is your location code?
pearldrumbum Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2014
Love this suite so much! Only  thing I haven't figured out how to change yet is the size of the RSS feed. I'd like it to be quite a bit bigger. Is this a huge undertaking, and where can I look in the config file to make these changes?
VClouds Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2014
You will need to edit the config file but it is a lot of work because there are a lot of things that need to be changed...
pearldrumbum Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2014
As well as change the number of articles shown? Although that's not as big o' deal.
I've been using this for about a week, and I really like it. I specifically wanted the Network module, because I like seeing my data usage in real-time.
However, I have to ask: how does the module calculate total upload/download? It says I've uploaded 135GB since I activated the skin, and that can't possibly be right.
I run Networx in the background all the time, and it says my total upload for the whole month of September is 32GB. That's still a lot, but it's way more believable.
And in case you're wondering, both are monitoring my motherboard's built-in ethernet adapter, since I'm not using a wireless adapter or anything else.
Nevermind, I read the instructions and found the "variants" section. Sorry.

Awesome! Thanks XD

Great looking skin!

I have a question concerning the Gmail skin.  I have my account set to use only secure connections.  Is there a way to use a more secure method of accessing Gmail?

Thanks in advance...

AcquetD Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014
nice work :)
unfortunatly, my path to the pictures doesn't work :s
can annyone help?

isn't the path for example c:\user\pictures\
ppeak Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014
Wow, what an awesome job you did.  I love it! Very well done, indeed.

Quick question: when I first installed it, it was the perfect size.  I was all set and no issue was found until I restarted my computer and the skins enlarged, not too much, but not what it once was. 

Is there a troubleshoot to change the size of the skins?

I'm really shocked rain-meter doesn't have that option, anyway. 

Thank you!
VClouds Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2014
Thank you!

The glasses suit cannot change sizes without some major edits in the config files. I have rainmeter for years and never a skin enlarged by itself.
Is it possible that your desktop display resolution has changed and that's what caused the 
ppeak Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2014
That's very possible.  Strange.  It was the perfect size, then it changed.  Great looking skins, though, regardless!
nairdajun Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014   Digital Artist
please check that it works for address…

I get "Please standby" even though most of the weather has loaded, the cloudy forecast doesnt load
VClouds Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2014
For some reason the weather info in your location is missing some info like pressure and current weather icon. that's why it wont fully load and show the "Please standby" screen.
You can wait and see if it sorts itself out or manually edit and delete the 'LOADING' section in the bottom of the config.
IamMax Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014
Great skin, I love it! Could you tweak it to allow monitoring of five hard drives? I have 3 HDD and 2 SSD. 
ppeak Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014
I second this! Great idea. 
mTnHJ Featured By Owner May 22, 2014  Hobbyist Artist

Do the default code works for you? UKXX0085
Slavander Featured By Owner May 4, 2014
no, it don't
VClouds Featured By Owner May 4, 2014
Then, somethings wrong with your rainmeter connection or is having a problem in your area.
Do other internet based rainmeter skins like news or weather work?
You probably already did this but try to restart your router and computer.
Slavander Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2014
I can't set my location. I entered the code in setting but it doesn't work. please help me
VClouds Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2014
Did you follow the instructions?
"Click the button on the upper right corner of the weather skin to open the panel and click the Settings button - select 'Location' and Paste the code over the old one - click Set."
Slavander Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2014
Yes, I did, but still it doesn't work
VClouds Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2014
Does it show the default London location or it doesn't work at all?
Slavander Featured By Owner May 1, 2014
It's dead, zero response ((
hasdrubalZz Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014

Awesome Awesome Awesome!  Thanks for making this and the vclouds skins, fantastic work!  

I have just one there any way to add a pause/resume button to the slide show, and also make it possible to open the current pic in the system default viewer/editor?
VClouds Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014
Thank you! I'm glad you like my work.
Unfortunately, I don't have time to add more features to the suit, I only fix new bugs.
I encourage you to try and add it yourself. you can start by checking out resources and the forum at

Excellent! It's an instant favorite!
I added to the Recicle Bin skin the left click/empty bin funcionality from gnometer that I found extremely useful. Maybe you can incorporate it in the next official update.

RightMouseUpAction=!Execute [!PluginBang "measureBinItems EmptyBin"]
VClouds Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2014
Thank you! I will consider your suggestion.
gregory2001 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2014
Why does the Today/Tonight never work?
Lagair Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2014
Ok, on the player front, it looks like that NowPlaying.dll isn't working properly with MusicBee right now. I tried another player and had the same results, but setting up Winamp works perfectly. So that is one thing removed from my small question list. :)
Lagair Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2014
Hey VClouds, awesome work on the skin. I've been working on setting up my desktop. I'm not doing anything special, just setting up a widget bar on the right side of my screen. I'm having a couple of issues though. 

One, is there a way to resize the Gmail object? I'd like the width to be the same size as the smaller objects.
Two, I can't seem to get the player to work with MusicBee. Following the directions in the Rainmeter manual, I set the player in your UI to CAD and refreshed the skin, and refreshed Rainmeter. And even restarted Rainmeter. But to no avail.

Once again, thanks for the great work and keep it up.
VClouds Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2014
Sure, you can resize the gmail skin. the things you need to do are to replace the BackgroundGmail.png with one of the smaller backgrounds from the Resources\Images folder and edit the skin's meters to fit the new size. (change the X and Y coordinates for the items that do not align correctly after you replace the background).
Rockowe Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2014
I don't know why but the weather is showing the wrong dates. The rest of the information seems correct. For example, under "Tomorrow" it has the correct high and low temperature but the date it shows is February 25 which is today. And under "Thursday", which is the day after tomorrow, it is Thursday and the forecast is correct but the date it shows is February 26 instead of 27. I'm in Australia.
VClouds Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2014
It only happens at night for a few hours. the problem is with the feed, there's nothing I can do about it.
Rockowe Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2014
For me it's all day, from when I get up to when I go to bed. Maybe it's because is a US site.
VClouds Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014
It probably happens in different times around the world...
