btw, i've tried your visualizer, and i wondered if it's possible to make the circle visualizer appear in a circle shape, if you understand ;-)

If it is, it'd fit perfectly with my current setup :D
That's pretty easy (if I understand)...

Right-click the Visualizer image, and select 'Create a New Style' from the 'Custom skin actions' of context menu.
This will move the display to top center and open the Config skin.

Then in the Config skin:
set the rotation(s) to '360',
set the Horz Spacing to '0',
L-R Separation to '0',
Vert Dispersion to '0',
and Beat Animation to '0'.

Then set the Ring Size and whether you want Center line Dots.

Should give you a multi-colored circle...

EDIT: Missed 2 steps: Set Bubble Mode to '1' and then click 'Apply'... :D

I'm not at my pc currently, but i'll try it later ;)

EDIT:
just saw your gif xDD
not exactly what i thought of, but it looked amazing :D
What i was thinking was that the circles would be aligned in a circle, not inside each other, but i actually think that this looked waay cooler xDD :thumbup:

You probably want to look at Radian Vibrance

I didn't care for the Music Player being incorporated in the center, but it does display the bubbles around a circle. You might be able to mod it to your needs.

You're right, that's more what i thought of :)

It'll do for now, but i'll probably have to create my own visualizer to get exactly the effect i want, but that'll have to wait til after i'm finished with the skin/plugin i'm working on ;)

Thanks anyways! :D

I installed the plugin and skin on my Windows Vista x64 laptop. Everything runs fine until I load the skin, which results in an instant Rainmeter crash. Just thought I'd let you know.

A Holly 4-barrel Street Avenger Carburetor won't work on your 1964 Ford Fairlane either... ;-)

Although the 58 Fairlane was a sweet lookin' ride...

Doesn't mean people won't try anyway :p I'd take that any day over my current ride...

I was just letting the developer know because he had been wondering what the plugin would do on various operating systems before implementing a mechanism to disable it on older OSes. I expected the plugin not to work and was not surprised that it crashed Rainmeter.

Thanks for letting me know! :D

i'll probably make a fix where i simply check if the system is windows 10, if it isn't i'll just disable the measure! ;)
