Simplesentence 2 by White-Baron Simplesentence 2 by White-Baron
Version 2.1

You can no longer download this version, get the latest edition here.




Note: Read the included text file before installing.

Updated: New skins now included, as well as some fixes. Music player now compatible with Foobar2k and Winamp!


An overhaul of my previous Simplesentence Rainmeter skin; here is the second edition.

This time I was aiming for a much more complete configuration, and a sleeker look. Simplesentence is designed to be unique from any other available skins, while still remaining easily customisable so that it can be integrated into a multitude of different desktops and themes.


Voted Skin of the Month for April 2010, thanks to everyone and to ~Magatsuerath for the nomination.

Hi White-Baron! one question - Can you hit a special Rainmeter panel (artwork) for Winamp! as an ordinary slide show (except it would depend on Winamp and the track currently playing) it would be great! Greetings to you friend

:iconwhite-baron:
White-Baron Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey mate, I know what you are after and you're not the only one. The problem is that at present there is no plugin for Winamp that can deliver artwork information to Rainmeter. The Winamp plugin is pretty basic, and the only plugin capable of artwork that I know of is iTunes. SO unfortunately, until someone writes a better plguin, there isn't much I can do.

I think I might still have it on my laptop. Its been severely tweaked though since I changed fonts and made global variables to color, text effects (shadows, outline, etc), etc etc etc.. I don't know what the licensing was for the original was but I'm assuming its something along the lines of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike. If its that important I might be able to find the original rar.

If you wait a week or so (depending on a few things) I will have [link] finished, which won't have this problem. Until then, make sure you have the included font installed (restart Rainmeter after installing a new font).

Hi, I'm using Foobar and how do I make my music tile and artist look like yours? Here's what mine currently say: [link]

I want it to list the title and then "by" the artist in the following line. Also, is it possible to make it display Asian characters?
Reply
:iconwhite-baron:
White-Baron Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The skin you are looking at is for iTunes - it uses a different plugin and has different capabilities. The Foobar plugin is very limited, so the skin you have is as close as possible to the iTunes skin as I could make it.

I'm not sure how it would deal with Asian characters, you may want to drop this question in at the Rainmeter forums, I'm sure they have dealt with this before.

I changed the spam.dll to something called foo_vis_shpeck.dll: [link]

It now displays Asian characters. Don't know if it'll do anything to the title formatting though.

Ok, I got it to work exactly how I wanted.

Under foobar-preferences-visualtions-spheck:I added

$crlf()

between the title and artist. I added "by", spacing and edited the skin x and y location to get the formatting right.

Here's my formatting text: %title% $crlf() by [%artist%' ']

Great skin by the way, keep it up.

im a new user of rainmeter and want to know what color codes to change the color of the font and where to find it to change it in the file also how can i add more rss feeds then the 3 this provides
Reply
:iconwhite-baron:
White-Baron Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Alright first off the colour codes can be various formats, I prefer to use RGB.You can find the RGB code of a colour using something as simple as MS Paint, just pick your colour and click edit colours to get the Red, Green and Blue value. The last number after the RGB code is the opacity (0-255).

To change the colour, right click the skin > edit skin to bring up the .ini file of that particular skin. Look in the meters section for the meter of each line you want to change and replace #Colour# with your RGB code.

To add more RSS feeds you can copy and paste the folder containing an RSS config. To change the feed, open up the .ini file again and change the details.
