That's the conclusion I came to, but I found no function matching aTan2 in Rainmeter and was not nearly determined enough to add it in myself. Either way I would appreciate an expanded set of functions as well. Regardless, as always, keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to whatever it is you cook up next.

**Edit**

Nevermind, seems Morley is on the case!

Here's my skin file, most of it should work now except the joystick displays, which will work on Sunday.

If you want to make sure your skin works with it dgrace, you can get the pre-release build r2357 from here.

Just a note: I finally got a second controller and can confirm it works with multiple devices. (current limit from the API is 4)

Someone please make a simple multiplayer game for this, like a maze race or something.

Dgrace could you post an example meter for the battery function of Xinput?
I know whe have discussed this before, but still can't get it to behave. Sry

This is what I tried:

Code: Select all

[measureXInput_Battery]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=XInput
Channel=Battery_Pad

[meterBattery]
Meter=STRING
MeasureName=measureXInput_Battery
FontSize=30
but it seems Battery_Pad is tied to left stick for some reason.
Value Changes to 0, -1 and 1 depending on what direction the stick is moved.
Maybe the channel name is wrong?

Found Xinput on Github and as you mention there,
battery metering is enabled
.
I remember, a zero needed to be changed to a one and then recompile.
but i fear something else is wrong, since the value changes with the left stick.

Not sure - it seems to be working on mine (or at least as much as I can tell, since I have a wired X360 controller, not a wireless one)'

See if you have any better results with this version: (attached)

Looks promising.
now the value stays at 1, and not triggered by the left stick. YAY :D
I forget what 4 values it spits out though, and what they mean. :P
(Does the value of 1 mean the battery is at 25% ?)

25%
50%
75%
100%

BTW, your new example skin and all the new features is freakin' awesome!
