Countdown for Rainmeter!
All right, here it is!
I have been working on this one for a while!
First of all, let me thank ~TheAslan ~ Link below!
He originally gave me the idea and pointed me to an old skin that he wanted modified. Thank you very much!!
So for the specs:
THE SETTINGS AND THE TIMER TOGGLE SO YOU DON'T ACTUALLY SEE BOTH AT THE SAME TIME. WHEN YOU HIT THE SET BUTTON IT WILL BRING UP THE SET TAB, AS SHOWN IN THE LOWER PART OF THE PREVIEW. AND WHEN YOU HIT (OK) IN THE SET TAB IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY TOGGLE BACK TO THE COUNTDOWN TAB, AS SHOWN IN THE TOP PART OF THE PREVIEW!
This is a timer that counts down from the set time. You can go up to 100 hours with this.
There are Start, Stop, Reset, and Set buttons.
Setting is easy. Just use the plus-minus symbols for each:
Hour, Minutes, Seconds!
The beautiful thing about this skin is that it is totally customizable. The old skin was filled with PNG's. I have removed all the PNG's and have replaced them with text. Even so there is still button like action. You can change the fonts and colors to anything you so desire.
Just be warned: IF YOU CHOOSE TO CHANGE THE FONT YOU WILL HAVE TO CHANGE THE POSITIONS OF THE DIGITS AND BUTTONS. THIS SKIN WAS MADE USING Eurostile LT ExtendedTwo FONT WHICH IS INCLUDED WITH THE SKIN. ANY OTHER FONT WILL CHANGE THE LAYOUT.
Also, there is a .wav file for the Set Time Done alert. The default is:
C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Skins\Countdown\Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back - Doobie Snacks.wav
You can change this also. Just make sure that it looks like this when you change it. It must be a .wav file and it would be a good idea if you put a copy of the .wav file in your Countdown skin folder. Here is an example of how it should look in the .ini file:
;Path to sound files
AlarmBeforeSound=C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Skins\Countdown\Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back - Doobie Snacks.wav
;EndTimeSound=C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Skins\Countdown\Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back - Doobie Snacks.wav
EndTimeSound=C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Skins\Countdown\Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back - Doobie Snacks.wav
Well, I think that is it. If not let me know!
Here is a link to the original skin -
