Unity for Rainmeter 3.0 by hello-123456 Unity for Rainmeter 3.0 by hello-123456
:iconhello-123456: & :iconcol-darby: Present to you:

Unity for Rainmeter V3.0



Update 25-03-2011: Fixed HDD2 displaying HDD1 label, fixed a typo in the readme ([link])

Whilst version 2.0 was a huge improvement above 1.0, people wanted more, they wanted widgets!
Well you asked for it and you got it!
I started making some widgets myself, when I came across the Faenza widgets of ~Col-Darby.
So I send him a PM and asked if he felt something for Collaborating for V3.0, and he told me that he started those widgets as a tribute to the Unity bar!
And so it happened, using dropbox to sync the code development started, and now it's done, we're proud to present you V3.0 of Unity for Rainmeter!
You thought we would stop there? You couldn't be further from right, we also included the beloved stacks, customizable backgrounds, text and a dropshadow!

IMPORTANT: If you are running version 2.0 already, it is possible to update it to 3.0 using the included instructions.
Updating from 1.0 to any version is not supported. (To much changes).
For those using V1.0 or those not using it at all, the .rmskin is included in the archive for easy installation.
Update 20-03-11 20:20 (GMT): If you are planning to update 2.0, download the archive again, due to a mistake you would still lose your settings, this is fixed now!

Hi, just thought I,d add my thanks for this skin to the list, I am an experienced Rainmeter user but it did take me a while to get used to it and then the real fun started, its actually very well written and extremely easy to customize, my own setup does,nt look anything like the original and that's the beauty of your skin.Anybody reading reviews on this skin should,nt worry it does exactly as the author states, read the help on getting the icons to show and you should be good to go and if you look through the skins file you will find all sorts of hidden gems.EXCELLENT :)

Hi! I just wanna ask, on the Stacks, some (actually almost all) of the programs' icons doesn't seem to go with the size of the 'Icon Size'. Their icons are customized at 256 x 256 pixels, so I know that whatever the 'Icon Size' is, they will just grow with it. And, if I try to 'stretch icons', the icons pixelizes and is barely recognizable. What could probably be the solution?

BTW. I really liked this skin. I am really looking forward using it perfectly! Thank you!

I'm running windows 7 and I can't see any of the icons. I did the thing people said to do in previous comments (moving MeterUnity and MeterUnityShadow before Variables) and it didn't work, I still don't see the icons. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I am having problem with the skin mainly that it does not show any images on the sidebar. I am very fascinated by how the smooth transition occurs when you click on stack 1 but am having some problem reading on how it happens on the coding. Could you explain how it works to me?

The stacks are being handled by third party software, not by rainmeter itself. Rainmeter was never meant to be used for the purpose I used it here. Lacking the programming skills to actually build such a thing stand-alone I used Rainmeter to create it. In case you still wonder how to fix it, please take a look at this comment: comments.deviantart.com/1/2016…

Hidden Icon Problem on Win8
1 - right click on the bar and choose "modify this skin" (use notepad++ dudes)
2 - near line 90, select and cut the two following blocks of code : "[MeterUnityShadow]" & "[MeterUnity]"
3 - paste them before "variables" block which is approx. at line 10
4 - save and exit, and refresh the skin
5 - and voila, everything's fine now

Thanks for reposting that message. I haven't been on dA for a long while and it hurts to see people have been struggling with this for such a long time. Pretty cool to see the Rainmeter community support eachother tough by writing these kind of small tutorials. I haven't come around on working on the project anymore ever since V3 was released but I'll soon release an update to accomate this issue.

The bottom bar is my taskbar, I simply cropped the image a bit so it would be more obvious to people to what this skin actually is.

If you right-click your taskbar and click properties, you should get a window which has an "auto-hide taskbar" option. Click the box next to it, hit apply and ok, it should disappear. Only trouble is that whenever you get too close to the bottom, it'll reappear then disappear when you move your mouse away.

Right click the taskbar(make sure it's unblocked/unlocked), goto "Toolbar>" "New toolbar..." select any empty folder on your pc, right click your new toolbar and disable "Show text" and "Show title", move the toolbar to the far right and adjust the size until your icons are alligned. (my Windows isn't in english so the menus could be named differently)

Can't believe it has been so long since I used dA... Coming back and seeing people struggle with it kinda hurts. All I can say though is thanks, thanks for looking after the users and fans of this skin and giving them a helping hand on how to fix this issue. I haven't come around on working on the skin since the release of V3 but I'll soon update the skin to fix this issue. Appareantly Rainmeter has changed the way the 'layers' are interpreted upon reading the skin, now causing the toolbar to fall over the icons. Glad you figured that out.
