hey Raiguard, came in just to say thanks on this awesome skin/gadget. after PC meter stopped updating with cpu meter this is the perfect replacement. few things i need help with if you dont mind.

- the bar in meter is so thin, its rather a line than a bar, how to make it thicker? like at least 3-4x
- each bar (example cpu 0 is green), how can i change the temp (38C) and usage (98%) text color to the same as that corresponding bar, to green in this case.
- clock, is it possible to move the clock frequency to above CPU name?

i've tried a bunch of thing by adding stuff in CPU .ini file but of course they dont work, pls help.

Is there a way to make the background transparent?
That would make my setup a lot cleaner :D

You should be able to move the clock speed simply by cut/pasting it above the CPU name in the code. As for the bars, go to ModernGadgets/@Resources/Settings/StyleSheet.inc and find the barHeight variable. Change it, save, and refresh the gadgets.

The text colors will need to be edited manually. Just add FontColor=#colorCore1# to each Meter, changing the core number in the variable as you go.

If you have any other questions don’t be afraid to ask.

Navigate to ModernGadgets/@Resources/Settings/StyleSheet.inc and find the colorBg variable. Change the 255 at the end to 0. Save the file and refresh the gadgets.

I've been using and enjoying ModernGadgets for awhile...great utility!
I need to PREVENT one of my drives from the drive meter from displaying. My NAS always shows pegged activity, so I'd like to just remove it from the display....how do I do this???

Go into the global setting skin and turn on “Opt-in to development testing”. After a while it should prompt you to download v1.3.0-beta.2, the most recent development version. That version has the ability to hide disks you don’t want to see.
