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!

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 ?
Atlas--I8I Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2016

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.
larry1952 Featured By Owner Edited Nov 16, 2015
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 -

Please upload it to dropbox/googledrive or some similar file storage service and send me a note (use the 'Send a Note' button on my user page) with the link.
Thank you

Kickazz skin, thank you.. I'm having the same problem with Gmail, but my pass has no special characters and gM double security is off ..I can click the mail icon on the skin which opens up Gmail for me, but the feed does not work. Help?
AttackPenguin666 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2016
check gmail
should have a message about access from less secure apps, enable this
VClouds Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2015
I don't know, I just tested a fresh copy of the email skin and it works fine for me.
Just to make sure, when setting up the username/password did you click the 'GmailUsername' field, delete the default 'username', enter your username and clicked SET, and did you do the same in the 'GmailPassword' field, like it say in the instructions?
FrozenPhoton Featured By Owner Edited Sep 28, 2015
Hey, love the skin.  Any chance you can add CPU temps from Coretemp/speedfan to the system skin? Feels like it could be a useful addition.  

robhaze Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2015  Professional Interface Designer
Love my new glasses!
eXoInvert Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2015
I would suggest not changing your password and risking your own security due to an issue with the feed not accepting any of the following characters. !@#$
dbinott Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2015
The System skin is constantly using 2-3% CPU. Any way to fix that?
mattga8597 Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2015
No I did not have the @ symbol in the password. I also clicked set also. I really like your work. If you can come up with anything else I would greatly appreciate it.
mattga8597 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2015
I only entered my user with no gmail and it still did not work. I have also reinstalled
VClouds Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2015
Do you have the '@' symbol in your password? if so then that is probably the problem.
Also did you make sure to click 'set' after filling each field?
mattga8597 Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2015
I can not get my gmail to sync... It just says not available in the gmail box. All login info is correct. Any ideas?
VClouds Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2015
Try entering only the username without ""
chewtoy77 Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2015
Love the skin, have a few quick questions, if you can point me, will very much appreciate it!

Running Win 10 + Rainmeter 3.2.1

1. gmail keeps throwing '(fetch error) The server name or address could not be resolved (ErrorCode = 12007)  How do I point to the right server, not seeing it in the settings or .ini

2. LOVE the weather widget.  Any way to have multiple cities display?

3. Can the player be set to respond to all system noises so it works for all sounds coming out of the speakers?

Again, thank you for this, I'm putting it on both my desktop and laptop! :)
VClouds Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2015
Thank you! glad you like it.

1. Haven't tried windows 10 but it works fine for me in windows 8.1 and 7. are you sure you entered your username and password correctly?

2. You can make how many copies of the weather skin folder as you want and use different locations in each.

3. Not sure what you mean. the player skin is designed to control media players like MediaMonkey, MusicBee, iTunes, etc. its not meant to control system sounds.
chewtoy77 Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2015
Thanks for the fast reply!

1: My password has an @ sign in it, wonder if that's the problem....

2: Groovy, thanks!

3: OK, will use the monstercat skin for this.

Thanks again!
VClouds Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2015
Your welcome.

1: Yes that @ sign is most likely what causes your problem. 
The URL variable line looks like this: https :// - so that extra '@' from your password basically messes up the URL...

LiquidAluminum Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2015
Is there a way to make the RSS reader stop its auto cycling, so I can just click on the feed I want to see at any given time?
VClouds Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2015
You can edit RSS.ini and delete the following lines:

Formula=Counter % 22
IfAboveAction=#Switch2#[!EnableMeasure mFeed2Switcher]

Formula=Counter % 22
IfAboveAction=#Switch3#[!EnableMeasure mFeed3Switcher]

Formula=Counter % 22
IfAboveAction=#Switch4#[!EnableMeasure mFeed4Switcher]

Formula=Counter % 22
IfAboveAction=#Switch1#[!EnableMeasure mFeed1Switcher]

Thanks, man! After all this time, still one of my favorite packs of all time.

Your welcome!

Hi - I am interested in how you created the panes - what tool did you use to get the multi-colored tapered border of your panes?
VClouds Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2015
Used the Stoke FX with black and white gradient fill type in PS.
ms310 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2015
Thanks! I use cheaper software and was able to "almost" duplicate it with some effort. Cheers!
SleepyD007 Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2015
Love this!  Having issues with the drives.  Have renamed all for of my drives , but they all show as 0.0 B / 0.0 B.  Any thoughts?
rms59 Featured By Owner May 6, 2015
I only use vclouds on my desktop as a weather app. How do I get two so I can monitor two locations?
VClouds Featured By Owner May 8, 2015
Copy the weather folder and refresh rainmeter.
sgtbri93 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2015  Student Artist
This is awesome, though I was wondering if there was something that could be done to help the gmail function.  I put in the details from the help file (Username and Password), and have checked and rechecked to be sure they are right.  I even re-installed the entire suite, but still can't get it to work.  Is it for gmail only accounts?
sgtbri93 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2015  Student Artist
Never mind, just me being technologically inept.  Awesome work though!
LeitoPark Featured By Owner Edited Apr 28, 2015
Very, very nice!!!

The weather skin in spanish never have "##" problems or other big problems.
Wow, the system skin looks more technical now, i like that.
Thanks for de 8 drives, i
had them separately, this saves a lot of space because I have more than 8. jajaja

In the settings of drives skin, you can not change the last 4 HDD, but in the skin folder modifying the file "" with the drive letters wanted it fits well. ;)

If you have more to translate, let me know.
Thanks for your hard work!!!
