Oh and this
LOL thats awkward, rookie mistake, I was too deep and confused with where I was at and what I was doing! LOLFirst of all, let's not mix getting the CPU usage with getting the CPU temp, they are two different things. Best thing to do is take them one at a time and go to the next task only after finishing the previous one. Below we handle the CPU usage issue.
I def was getting into a vortex here
I was getting into a loop vortex with the Value1 = measureCPU then Measure CPU = CPU, but this clears it up a lot, the hierarchy or reference code makes more sense the way you are telling me!Secondly, modifying the appropriate meter, in performanceTemplateX4.ini. The meter that needs to be modified is [Value1], since this is the meter that contains the reference to the [MeasureCPU] measure (actually, the variable assigned to it, i.e. #GraphMeasure1#) from the previously edited cpuTemplate.ini file. Therefore, we change the [Value1] meter to:
I was also going about it wrong, instead of keeping the proper format of the windows 10 templates and adding the features properly, I was copying and pasting trying to muddle together like you saw!
This is really helpful, Im going to work on this all weekend and get the exact outputs I want and show you how helpful you are!
I appreciate this so much for taking the time to turn me into a Rainmeter Developer
