xT Control Console 1.0

Post by princi »

Hi everyone,
I finally completed my first system monitor suite and I'm happy to share it with you all. I added a new original "floating bubbles" layout can be turned on from context menu.
The suite still use SpeedFan as hardware monitor provider cause I'm not yet able to run HWiNFO on my machine, not even the new beta version. :confused: About this I want to renew my invite to anyone would like to create an HWiNFO compliant version of this suite... feel free to do it and share the result!

A special thanks to JSMorley and TheAzack9 for the useful ConfigActive plugin that made me very easy develop the switch function between "standard" and "bubbles" layouts.

Any suggestions for futher improvments will be very welcome.

Love your work mate!
I saw dozens of HW meters, this one is the best for me!
Thanks a lot! :thumbup:

But..i can't see CPU temp and RPM

I checked HWInfo and can't find Sensor ID's, just tried one by one from 1 to 10 - and nothing, zero on both still.

Hi
This looks really good!
I tried editing it to show my internet download speed but i couldn't. I am no expert on rain meter, so i decided to leave out the ring on the side and make it in to a circle using bits of other code. This is what i ended up with:

Code: Select all

Even if there is small mistake in the NetInSpeed option of the [measureNetIn] measure (a closing # is missing, the one marked red here: NetInSpeed=#maxDownload#), this is not the issue for sure. But what do you mean by "it failed dismaly"? Does the skin work?
Additionally both the NetInSpeedNumber and NetOutSpeed options into the Net measures are depricated and shouldn't be used.

Thanks for that! It looks like a table showing the speeds with no background, which is not what i wanted. However, it does show the correct speeds. My problem is trying to make it match this style, which I am failing at.

Does it? I'm a little bit surprised, however I'm glad if it does.

Since there are some files which I don't have (Background.png, BaseBubble.inc, Images\gradient1.png and so on), would be great to pack the whole config and upload the package here, to have all of them. If you do this I'm gonna take a look to see how can it be designed in a way you want.

You can either use the skin packager of Rainmeter or a program like WinZip, WinRar (or else).
