Hi All

CyberTheWorm » August 22nd, 2016, 11:58 pm

Just got started playing with Rainmeter and just created my first skin.

I used the Rotator Meter example to make a 12-24 hour clock.
I edited it a bunch and can flip between the 2 different faces.
Need to get a better 24 clock face I just threw that one together.

Welcome to Rainmeter (an indeed great tool) and this forum.
If these are your first skins, congratulations.
The 24-hour clock is an interesting idea. Please post the code.

Although I don't have the 24hour.png image, it's an interesting idea. Congratulations. Keep working and go on. But be careful, Rainmeter is addictive...

Not addicted?

Only a developer needs a 24-hour clock face (insert emoji here)

Or maybe an alcoholic insomniac - but I repeat myself..

Welcome - I'm new too.
