Where would i insert that? I have looked for [NextTimeConversion] but with no luck, not with finding it, have searched the code but to no avail.. :handtohead:
First download the new skin update posted above by eclectic-tech:

Details and link

Then go to Rainmeter \ Skins \ Visions + \ Weather \ TWC_7_Day and open the TWC_7_Day.ini file.
Enter the solution posted by mak_kawa as follows:

Add at the end of the ----Moon Phase measures ---- section :

Code: Select all

[NextTimeConversion]
Measure=Time
TimeStamp=[MeasureNextHour]:[MeasureNextMin]
TimeStampFormat=%H:%M
Format=%#I:%M %p
DynamicVariables=1
Then go to the ----Moon Phase Meters---- section and replace :

Code: Select all

[MeterNextTime]
MeasureName=MeasureNextHour
MeasureName2=MeasureNextMin
Meter=STRING
SolidColor=0,0,0,1
X=0r
Y=13r
StringEffect=#effect#
FontColor=#fontColor.Text#
StringStyle=NORMAL
FontSize=#FontHeight#
StringAlign=CENTER
FontFace=#FontName#
Antialias=1
Text="%1:%2 #zone#"
with these:

Code: Select all

[MeterNextTime]
MeasureName=NextTimeConversion
Meter=STRING
SolidColor=0,0,0,1
X=0r
Y=13r
StringEffect=#effect#
FontColor=#fontColor.Text#
StringStyle=NORMAL
FontSize=#FontHeight#
StringAlign=CENTER
FontFace=#FontName#
Antialias=1
Text="%1 #zone#"
Save, Close, Refresh skin.

Visions+ Beta 3b.2020.01.02

Details and link

Released an updated, simplified, and enhanced(?) version that brings the package installation inline with modern Rainmeter practices.

All images are now in @Resources\Images
Reduced number of skins by combining Black/White version (select text color using "InkDrop" icon)
A common WeatherVar.inc file is used so all skins refllect same location data
Background colors generated by Chameleon plugin with desktop color awareness (optional)
I still believe that this approach is a little bit unfortunate. I still believe a shared code for the WebParser measures, as well as for all the variables, beside the weather variables and images would be needed. I rewrote the codes in such a way here, however in this package only the WebParser measures are shared into the @Resources\Weather.inc file. For yet the variables are not shared, although they should have to have been. Should I rewrite the code again, to add the variables as well into a shared file?
Such an approach has a lot of advantages in front of a not shared codes approach, at least in my opinion.

Have you downloaded and installed the latest skin update posted by eclectic-tech?
If not, install it:
https://www.deviantart.com/eclectic-tech/art/Visions-Weather-825256646?ga_submit_new=10%3A1577752135
Then follow exactly the steps described in my previous post

Edit:
Or, after installing the latest update, go to Rainmeter \ Skins \ Visions + \ Weather \ TWC_7_Day and replace the existing TWC_7_Day.ini file,
with the TWC_7_Day.ini file from the attachment.
Then Refresh skin.
TWC_7_Day.ini
