NovaSev RainMeter Skin by Nova-7-Sev-dd NovaSev RainMeter Skin by Nova-7-Sev-dd
NovaSev RMS is a refreshing re design of SimplyNova. This skin allows users a better few of the stats, with a minimal look and feel. I prefer this set up, as it allows (using two background bars) the use of any wallpaper without having to change color schemes or losing visibility.

The preview above shows different background bars then what the default ones are - which are just black. This is just to show you that you can do a lot with it from easy and quick changes. With the default background bars, I like to change the transparency to 20% which gives it a cool look.

Included:

Hard Drive bars: Used amounts
RAM bars: RAM ans SWAP usage
Network bars: Current usage of Upload and Download (hovering shows totals)
System bars: Current usage of CPU and top running process
Misc. bars: Recycle bin and Gmail account
12 Hour time + date
4-day forecast weather: Showing current and low temps.
Background bars for use with any and all desktop backgrounds.


****WEATHER EDITING**** To change the weather unit (F or C) and location follow these simple steps..
1. Right click on the weather meter and select Edit Skin.
2. To change weather measure - use f for farenheit and m for celsius.
3. To find your location code - use this site: [link] and enter your code to replace the one currently there.

I hope you like the skin, get in touch with me if you need anything at all. Thank you.

If you right click on the meter > select edit skin > scroll to variables (near the top) > and you can change the dark colors. It will be listed as 0,0,0 or close to that, you can change it to whatever RGB or HEX color code you want it as.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say specifically there. Are none of the stats working as they should?

Hey, I love this rainmeter skin, it's awesome, thanks for creating it!

Also, since the rainmete 3.0.2 release yesterday, the font broke (at least for me, I already tried changing the font size), any chance you could fix this? Thanks!

I no longer have the folder for this, can you check the folder and see if the font is included in an ~resources folder?

Just checked them, 3 fonts: AGENCYB, AGENCYR and GeosansLight_0, no values were  changed on my side, I took a picture showing the differences this rainmeter update made with the font As example the word usage, left being updated rainmeter and right your screenshot from the preview here.

Just wanted you to know I'm still looking into things that could have been changed or screwed up. Nothing yet. It's the one thing about Rainmeter that is fun in a bad way - trying to keep up with all the new bugs still coming around lol. I'll get back in touch with you if I find anything - my system isn't doing it so it's a bit difficult to try and fix. Have you tried using a different font from your system?

I found the old version of rainmeter on my hard drive, downgraded to it, and it fixed the font problem, so I don't think I'm missing a font on my system or something like that.

If you don't find the problem I'm okay with it, as this is the only skin I use after all.

can we change the color of the system bars?

:iconnova-7-sev-dd:
Nova-7-Sev-dd Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2013  Professional Interface Designer
yes we can - right click on each one of the skins and scroll down to where you see the variables for each bar (sorry, I forget what I called them and don't have the file handy to look it up) and you can change them to whatever color you'd like. I used RGB value for the background bar that is semi see through and the other one is a HEX value. You can use either kind of value you just need to find out what it is that you want to use.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean - you can add as many disks to it as you want, or as few - yes. If that's not what you meant let me know.

I've found in other skins that it sometimes has multiple versions of that entity depending on how many disks you may or may not have. (that's what I meant to ask.) Well I downloaded it and found there to be too many disks for my computer, So I delved into the code to try and change it, while I did succeed in making it show less I also broke the code in the process. But don't worry I've managed to fix it now (Student Programmer FTW!) This was done after I made that comment so sorry for bothering you XD.
On the plus side I love the skin!

Haha, no worries - I'm basically a student programmer still myself, best way to learn is to break something and then fix it :) thanks for the comment, let me know if you have any other questions.

If you want a little more learning - you can add detection for removable drives as well (just have to play with the X and Y settings a little) from a tutorial I did at NovaSev.com

Is there any way you could add an option to display more hard drives? I have a total of 4 and I love your skin but i cant monitor all of my drives.
Reply
:iconnova-7-sev-dd:
Nova-7-Sev-dd Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Professional Interface Designer
Yep, it's not something that I'll personally add in myself but it's very easy for you to do it. If you right click the skin, select edit skin - you'll see the code there. Through out the file I've marked each drive in a way that you can see what code goes to what drive (it's simply repeating the same thing 3 times and adding a distinctive variable at the top for each separate drive).

To start out, add your new drive at the top(ish) area of the file (marked as variables - you'll see the other drives there and will reference it later by notating #new drive letter#).

After that, find each section (I believe they are split into measures, styles, and then the actual displayed meters), and copy everything you see for one drive (so everything marked 1,2, or 3 - just pick one and stick with it).

Now that you have your new code you'll have to do a little bit of editing here. First thing, go back through and change each beginning name (wrapped in [meterXXXxx] ) to your new number/drive. Find where the variable is called (#D1# etc) and change that to your new drive variable name that you created at the top.
Next, you'll have to change where the text and bars are displayed. This is simply changing the Y= number so that it shows up below your last drive (i believe it is an increment of 20, so add 20 to what ever the Y= number is for your third [meterLabel] and [meterBar] to your new disk meter.

This should be all you need here :) If you don't feel comfortable trying this or can't get it to work (don't feel bad either way - i say simply a lot about the coding but I do it all the time), shoot me a private message and I'll just write the code up for you and you can copy & paste it into your file. Thanks for the comment :)

Not sure you're on the right skin to ask that question. Are you asking about SimplyNova? Cause there are no icons on this one except for the weather icons...

I'm REALLY loving this theme. However, is there any way I can change the weather language? I've managed to change the clock's language in the ini files manually but I can't seem to do it in the vertical weather one.

That is something beyond my knowledge I'm afraid. I imagine the reason that you haven't been able to get it to work is because it's actually pulling information from the web. You'd have to find the URL for the same feed, but in the language you're trying to use.

After switching daylight savings time a couple of weeks ago, my computer clock is correct, but my desktop time is an hour fast. I am using TimeDate24.ini in RainMeter, Nova\TimeDate. Is there a setting to get this adjusted correctly?

:iconnova-7-sev-dd:
Nova-7-Sev-dd Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2012  Professional Interface Designer
you should try and refresh the clock - I had the same issue. I'm usually the same thing so there shouldn't be an issue there. If a refresh doesn't work, re download it - sometimes there is a sort of "cache" collection for skins. Get back to me if that doesn't do the trick, I just had to refresh my clock.

It's not set to be arranged once you install it - you'll have to move them around. As for the bars, right click on them, edit skin - and change the W= to your screen width.
