Ok Folks
I know it has been a while and alot has happened, but I am now able to move forward, and so I have.

A weather skin change over is now available at the Rainmeter forums.

This is a Beta, but fully operable. I will be making massive changes so if you want the skin as shown above, but in AccuWeather, do so quickly

It can be found here:

A full release will be available when this skin is out of Beta.
A wireless skin and other updates will be available as well.

I am moving forward

Although I Have not supplied an image, I just added a new skin (Apologies for those that have been downloading like mad over the last few hour)
I have just added an Independent Moon Phase Skin to the SGT Splicer Pack.

But to get a look, check here:

Now you may need to delete the old skin folder before install of this one, as I have changed some folder namers so that I may more easily monitor the skins.

Once again if you have questions or comments I am regularly at the new Rainmeter forums

Or you are welcome to comment here, and I will get to you as soon as I can

More to come

I am a splicer of other skins.
My current projects are in the area of enhancing HUD Vision by Mepu.

I take no credit for the work done, and lay all credit to the original authors. These folks are listed in the skin ini files.

The skins are an addition to Mepu's HUD Vision, and is not intended as a complete replacement.
So what comes in the first splicer pack?

Modified weather (HUD)
Modified CPU Monitor HUD (added top process)
Dual core monitor (HUD in red and blue)
HUD Vision Mail for Gmail.

There will be more in time

If you require assistance with these skins, I am regularly at the new Rainmeter forum:

Or you are welcome to comment here, and I will get back to you as soon as I have a chance.

More to come, but for now enjoy.

General notes on screen shot:
HUD Vision from Mepu (MOD the heck out of) [link]
Vista Rainbar (Pulled at the moment, waiting for new one that will be compatible with Vista)
Enigma [link]
BlueFeed Modified graphics in process (Rss Reader by Kenz0) [link]
Pantero skin (Clock with otu all the graphics) [link]
Actual Winamp skin Red Button [link]
Power Toy. Upper left hand corner, to shut down windows [link]
Fences by stardock (Opagued out) [link]

I have modified a HUD Vision Mail with Enigma Gmail to get a HUD Vision Gmail.

Modified CPU 1 and CPU 2 and combined them, gave them absolute red and absolute blue, and when crossed over you get purple.

Added Blue Flames to BlueFeed graphics (Hope Sanado-san approves)

Of course the is the modified CPU core reader with a top progress mod

I am not finished here, but atleast you have an idea of where I am at.

You can get the modified gmail, and the modified CPU monitor at the new forum: [link]

All butchered to get what I want.

I am not done modifying as yet. I want to minimalize the HUD Vision just a little, and cross add some functionality

More skins to come

You art absolutely correct.
Give me a few days, and I will edit the entry, and get this corrected.

In the mean time, was there a particular link you are interested in?

Edit found it kind off

Now a direct image not 100% but 99%

The original image was picked up at RocketDock quite some time ago.

I am unable to find it at this time, but I will do you one just as well.

I will keep the following link up for a while, as I also have it posted to a skin at DevArt.

Among the icon collection there is also 2 wall papers, the original and a 1200X 800, I use on my laptop

Get it while you can:

I am posting Via DropBox, if you like what it can do, check it out here:

How do you change your weather to say my state Houston Tx?

Isxaari says:

edit. I got it. How ever the time is 12-13 min off of my cell phone any ideas on how to fix that?

Isxaari says:

I'm sorry man for all the comments.

But How do you update the time/date/ and change the F degrees to C degrees? Mine does not seem to update in real time.

Tue, Jun 23rd at 01:54pm (8 years ago)

The time you are seeing is the last time of a major update. Weather.com only updates every hour.

To change to Celcius, you must specify that in the ini file, there should be directions.

No problem with all the questions, I am here to help

I also noticed that you have posted to the forum, so I will attempt to address your issues there :D

@ Isxaari

No Problem; Enjoy :)

Weather.com has changed their format and cut off the original XML.

A solution is being rendered at the Rainmeter forums.

I will have a working solution in the next few days for my weather, and HUD VIsion as well
