HeadsUp 2.0 Skin  by Bacanalia73 HeadsUp 2.0 Skin  by Bacanalia73
I changed a few things in this version -- I shuffled the components around to make room for a new weather component, and I added a volume slider for the taskbar, which I think works much better than the stock Windows 7 volume (just set position to "Stay Topmost"). I also added a neat little feature that causes the glare component to disappear when you unplug your laptop,and reappear when you plug it back in. The taskbar is WindowBlinds MI6, if you are interested in such things. Let me know if you like it! (File update 1/7/2013 -- I added a slideshow component. If you want to download a SexySlideshow for this skin, go here: [link])(Designed for a 1600x900 resolution)

Awesome work Bacanalia73, really dig this. I just discovered Rainmeter today and I sifted through hundreds of other skins before landing on yours.

I'm also on a 1366x768 laptop display and the skin is off-center to the right after loading your layout. Is there a way to shift everything over at once, or would I have to define the coordinates one component at a time?

Hey thanks for the nice remarks -- to my knowledge, there is no way to move everything over at one time, but I am far from a Rainmeter expert. My advice is to use the x/y coordinate scale on the Manage Rainmeter screen. This way you can move each component over the exact same number of pixels.

how do get the taskbar? also what's the name of the wallpaper? I'm new to the Rainmeter scene so I'm not sure if the background and taskbar are supposed to autoload along with the skins, or if that's something I'm supposed to DL separately.

P.S. Awesome skin out of all that I have downloaded today (and I downloaded like alot!) I think I'll be keeping yours for awhile.

Hey Mballz, nice to have new addition to the Rainmeter community -- any questions you have, please ask and I will try to help. The wallpaper is included in the skin; just follow the path to > rainmeter/skins/headsup 1.0/Wallpaper.jpg, and set the wallpaper as your desktop. The taskbar is part of a program called Windowblinds, and the skin is called "MI6": [link]

Thanks for the positive feedback, and hope you enjoy the skin!

You mean it does not spin around a central point, but seems to sort of meander around a bit? That is something I have been unable to fix. If you dont like it, then try some other .png files to replace the spinner, or make the png smaller. The smaller the image, the less it will meander. I tried several hundred values for the x/y offsets, and thats the best I could make it spin.

erm sorry if i have conveyed it wrongly. The screenshot above, the spinning core is centralised with the glow of the earth but mine is off to the right. is there anyway to make the whole skin moved to the left such that the spinning core is spinning 'above' the lightglow from the background image(:

oooh. Ok, two ways to solve this issue. Move each componenet individually, which if you do with the "manage rainmeter" screen (instead of just moving them around with the mouse), you can move every component over the exact same number of pixels -- just change the X "Coordinants" of each component over to the left so they are positioned where you want. Or, you can shave a little off the right edge of the wallpaper with photoshop, so the picture itself moves over to where you want. There is no way to move everything at once. Sorry dude

If the skin wont fit your screen, you can adjust the size of each glass box by changing the w=, h= of each one labeled imagename=bg.png. Its really easy to modify Rainmeter, thats what makes it so cool. If you want to change the size of the boxes that change to blue when you mouseover them, that is a bit more complicated, but I can tell you how to do it if you need help. And what do you mean by, "i cant active that bottom bar please help"?? What bottom bar? You mean the taskbar?
