I'm not sure why you would want to stay on 4.2 of Rainmeter, when 4.3 was released in September of 2019. I can understand (even if I don't entirely agree) with not staying current with the "beta" versions of Rainmeter, but I'm afraid I can't be concerned about those who won't stay current with the latest "release" version. My answer to any problem is always going to start with "Get the latest release version of Rainmeter".

Hi @jsmorley , I didn't see your reply while I was editing my previous post. First of all THANK YOU for your work. You are helping a lot of us here. :thumbup:

I realize that I didn't express myself correctly. I'm always willing to be up-to-date with any given software. Hence the fact that I downloaded the beta. Are you saying that 4.3.1 doesn't break compatibility with my IGP, but 4.4 beta does ? If so, I'll install 4.3.1 immediately. The only reason I didn't install it earlier is that I wasn't aware that it was out. Sorry about that !

Regarding my "newly-working skin" (see my previous edited post), there is only some really weird stuff supposedly happening next saturday :rofl: I wonder where that impossible "1°C" may come from, as that never happened before...

I actually recommend staying current with the latest "beta", although not everyone is willing to put the little bit of effort to stay current with that, and I'm sympathetic with that. But for sure the latest "release" is recommended.

But have you read my previous post about the latest beta not working with my IGP ? None of my skins load. Here's the log :

I'm happy to install every new version of Rainmeter as long as it's still compatible with my IGP, which the latest beta doesn't seem to be. ;-)

It looks like this issue has been fixed as of the r3382 beta. You can get it here: https://rainmeter.net

Thank you!

A typo! I left out a % on the Text option.

Cure it by replacing this section of code ( or just add a percent to the Text option: Text=%1°C)

Code: Select all

[MeterTEMP2]
Meter=String
MeasureName=@ForecastDay4DayTemperature
; MeasureName2=MeasureTemp2
; MeasureName3=MeasureTempSymb2
Group=Next3
X=68
Y=116
W=70
H=60
FontSize=14
FontColor=255,255,255,255
StringStyle=Bold
StringEffect=SHADOW
FontFace=#FontFace#
StringAlign=center
FontEffectColor=0,0,0,50
AntiAlias=1
Text=%1°C
Hidden=1

Excellent ! :rofl: Sorry, I should have thought about that. I thought it was a temporary issue on weather.com, and not a typo on the script.

Thank you all guys, you have been a tremendous help here once again. Thumbs up ! :thumbup:
