[Solved] Problem with rendering skins: pixels disappear

Post by twfst »

I am having a strange issue with one of my Rainmeter skins. When I first start my computer or refresh the skin the skin renders correctly and it looks like...

Image

But I notice that after a while clusters of pixels in the skin disappear or become translucent so I can see through to my desktop background. Then my skin then looks like this...

Image

(look at the sun on the right, the days of the week, and the description text of the weather skin)

The issue only occurs on this weather skin. All of my other skins stay rendered correctly. If I refresh the skin it renders correctly, but then it gradually degrades over time.

Does anyone know how I could adjust the skin, rainmeter, or my computer graphics so I don't have to refresh this one skin every hour? Alternatively, is there a way that I can have a particular skin refresh itself every 15 minutes?

Thank you for your help and advice!

PS: I am using Raimeter 1.1 (but my RainBrowser still says 1.00??), I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, the graphics processor is Intel64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10 GenuineIntel, I am only using one monitor on a notebook computer, I use AVG free antivirus, and I have installed Rainmeter in its default location.

Wow, that is weird. I think that skin is dying. ^^

Anyways, I have no idea how or why that's happening. However, add the following code to the aforementioned skin .ini to have it refresh every 15 minutes.

Code: Select all

[AutoRefresh]
Measure=Calc
Formula=Counter % 902
IfAboveValue=900
IfAboveAction=!RainmeterRefresh
Your update value in the [Rainmeter] section of the skin has to be 1000 for the code to work.




EDIT: Oh almost forgot, make that a 20 min update. As this is a weather skin you should avoid updating more often than 20 minutes apart. (See: http://rainmeter.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1135)
Could you just post your code and I'll make the necessary changes?

Be interested to know which skin that is :?:
Any chance you could post a link or the code here, could be a background image problem.
Then you could advise the original author about this.

it is a background image problem, as far as i remember has been here before
Zero at programing, zero at writing codes, so far 2 at making images
But I'm good at copy/paste, and I not always like this

If there is a line "Background=" under the [Rainmeter] section, try commenting it out using a ; at the start of the line. That fixed it in this case

Could it be another skin that is black starting behind the weather skin and then it refreshes itself and winds up on top of the weather?
Try moving the weather skin to another spot on your screen and see if it makes a difference.

Thanks, but that did not solve it. I have tried moving the skin, but the holes and gaps still appear no matter where I move the skin.
