Well.. dang it. Looks like I screwed up. Sorry about that. I think broke it in v6.1.0 when I rolled back the code to fix the performance issues. You will need to edit the skin to fix this, unfortunately. I'm surprised there are not errors in the log, because there is a typo in addition to a code mistake.

Edit the CPU Meter skin and find the measure MeasureSpeedFanCPUFanRpm. Replace the measure with this:

Code: Select all

[MeasureSpeedFanCPUFanRpm]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=SpeedFanPlugin
SpeedFanType=Fan
SpeedFanNumber=0
IfConditionMode=1
IfCondition=(MeasureSpeedFanCPUFanRpm > #FanCpuMax#) && (MeasureSpeedFanCPUFanRpm < 10000) && (#FanMaxAutoUpdate# = 1)
IfTrueAction=[!WriteKeyValue Variables FanCpuMax [MeasureSpeedFanCPUFanRpm] "#@#HWiNFO.inc"][!SetVariable FanCpuMax ([MeasureSpeedFanCPUFanRpm])]
Group=SpeedFanFans
DynamicVariables=1
Disabled=1
Next (this is the more important one for your issue), find the measure MeasureHWiNFOCPUFanRpm a few lines below. Replace the measure with this:

Code: Select all

[MeasureHWiNFOCPUFanRpm]
Measure=Registry
RegHKey=HKEY_CURRENT_USER
RegKey=SOFTWARE\HWiNFO64\VSB
RegValue=ValueRaw[#HWiNFO_MOBO_CPUFanSpeed]
IfConditionMode=1
IfCondition=(MeasureHWiNFOCPUFanRpm > #FanCpuMax#) && (MeasureHWiNFOCPUFanRpm < 10000) && (#FanMaxAutoUpdate# = 1)
IfTrueAction=[!WriteKeyValue Variables FanCpuMax [MeasureHWiNFOCPUFanRpm] "#@#HWiNFO.inc"][!SetVariable FanCpuMax ([MeasureHWiNFOCPUFanRpm])]
Group=HWiNFOFans
DynamicVariables=1
Disabled=1
Refresh the CPU Meter and you should immediately see your max fan speed values change (if your fan is running). Thank you for reporting this! The above fix will be in the next release.

(P.S.: The GPU Meter has a similar fan measure, but the errors are not present there.)

Great find! Thank you, this fixed the problem. Fan percentage is back to normal, OCD satisfied, I can sleep well now. :)

Now that I finally posted let me ask: do you happen to have a donation link? Would love to buy you a coffee for your amazing work.

Thank you, I'm glad you are enjoying the Gadgets! I don't have a donation link, but if you want, you can make a donation to the Alzheimer's Association. They could use a donation a lot more than me!

Hey there! I'm a big fan of this rainmeter skin, thank you so much for making it! I stuck to Win7 and used gadgets for a loooong time, but recently moved to Win10 and it's fantastic to have familiar monitoring on the new computer.

I just took the time today to set these up and get all the temps configured with HWiNFO. I noticed that when I scale the size of a gadget to something lower than 1, like .8 the background disappears. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?

Hi, glad you like the Gadgets! I do see what you are saying, and it's kind of a bug and kind of a Rainmeter issue. It's more related to laziness on my part, LOL. If you enter ".8" you will get a blank background, but if you use a leading zero, as in "0.8" or "0.80", then it works properly. Rainmeter does not like decimal values with no leading zeros.

I set the "Shared Memory Support" to on and the meter refreshed and carried on working (I read that the check box only lasts 12 hours but I haven't had to recheck it for three days). I've read all the notes on reconfiguring HWiNFO and updating you GPU Meter to v6.1.1 but before I make the changes how come GPU Meter v5.4.3 is still working and are the results likely to be wrong?Capture01.PNG
I've used HWiNFO64 v7.044480 since may 23rd and its still recognising it with your GPU Meter v5.4.3. so the 12 hour limit seems false.

Interesting! Maybe keep that info on the down-low, LOL. ;-)

Wow, that worked! Thanks!

Now that I've got them scaled down to 0.80, I've noticed that the weather gadget won't go as far to the right side of the screen as the others. Almost like the resize didn't work as far as the window snapping is concerned. I tried holding down the ctrl key and it still won't go all the way to the right. Is there a way I can fix that?

Oh yes, I didn't notice that. :-( Thanks for letting me know! Maybe someday I'll get all the bugs worked out... (Then again, maybe not... :))

OK, for this one, you'll need to edit the skin. Fortunately, the fix is easy. Right click the skin and select the Edit skin option. At the very top, somewhere in the [Rainmeter] section, add the following line:

Code: Select all

SkinWidth=(#BgWidth# * #Scale#)
That should allow the skin to properly "snap" to the right edge of the screen. The bottom edge of the Weather Meter will still act a little wonky (things may or may not snap to the bottom edge, depending on your settings [the Drives Meter has a similar issue when the scale is <> 1.00]). I'll include this fix in the next release. Let me know if you find anything else!
