10-Foot HUD YBoris edit by yboris 10-Foot HUD YBoris edit by yboris
Inspired by the "10-Foot HUD" Rainmeter skin by Espiox:

I used a nice font you see and edited it to be pixel-perfect. I just updated it to include a black version of the clock (and another two variations)!

Download. Edit. Share.

If anyone is wondering how to get it in 24h format: 

Change 
Format=%I:%M 
to 
Format=%H:%M
in the .ini

Sorry I've not been using Rainmeter for over a year; you're on your own. Google search for "how to use old rainmeter skin" and you might find information. Good luck!

Love this one. Definitely using it.

If it's not too much trouble, could you make a massive version of this? I love the blockiness, It really goes with just about everything.

Sorry, you might have to mess with the configuration file yourself. You could start by doubling all the sizes and then messing with the x & y coordinates ;)

I put the new font name (Checked correctness with the file.) in under FontFace=Fipps.
When I refresh it still won't change.

:iconyboris:
yboris Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012
Do any other fonts work? How about Arial? If it never changes, I'm not sure what's going on. If it doesn't change to 'Fipps' maybe the problem is with the font.

See other skins that allow you to change the font and look in the code how they do it. That can help. Good luck!

Don't know - sorry. This thing worked on XP and on a much-older version of RainMeter. You might have to glance at the documentation.

Here's what you should try - go to the .ini file (RainMeter skin file) and change the font to some other one you have installed; if the change occurs then, but not for the pixelfont; you might need to check the spelling of how the system labels it. Good luck - let me know if you find a solution :)

Hey there, nice clock I jsut can´t Install it or make it work in general
´´Move the "YBoris-Theme" folder to:
C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Skins´´

there´s no "YBoris-Theme" folder and I dont have the C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Skins folder either sorry if im being annoying but if you could help me I would really appreciate it.

I haven't used Rainmeter in years; now it probably installs somewhere else (especially under Win7 or Vista). Do a search in your computer to locate where Rainmeter installs (or search online for the answer). Once you find that folder - take a look if there is a folder called "themes" or "skins". Extract the 10-Foot HUD zip file into there.

Let me know if that works; if not - let me know where you're having trouble.

This is really nice! Any chance you'd make a set of similar skins with other functions? I don't really have any experience with rainmeter, but I want my whole desktop to look like this!

yboris Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2011
Thanks for the comments but I won't be spending any more time customizing. Though you should learn how to do it - it's very easy. Just open up the .ini file and mess around. Download other skins and see how they work (see the code).
This skin isn't innovative at all - I just chose a nice-enough font and arranged it nicely :)

When saved in windows 7, the font name turns into 04b_10_Regular try changing all the font names in the ini file to this and it should work

Odd - works here. Did you try again? Did you try other files on DeviantArt? It was likely a temporary problem.

Sorry - I don't know how Win7 deals with things. Perhaps it has something to do with how the fonts are named under Win7. Glance in the Win7 fonts folder and see if the font is listed as a different name - or has an underscore _ somewhere. One way to check is to see if other Rainmeter plug ins with odd fonts work.

Reply

yboris Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2010
you just need to edit the ini file where it says "font"
you'll need to do it on every line (use "search/replace")
