It has an Update of 20 and a single measure that just keeps counting to 1000 and displaying a message in the Log each time it completes. You would expect to see the message every 20 seconds (20 * 1000 = 20000ms). However on my PC I get the message to the Log every ~30 seconds. I'm curious if this differs from PC to PC or if low Update settings are just really inaccurate in Rainmeter.
I've included the test skin:
I'm experiencing similar results. Your Update Test skin produced logs on average every 31 seconds for me, despite intended to trigger every 20 seconds.
The ironic part is at Update=30, it still updates on average every 30-31 seconds (intended 30 seconds).
At Update=10, it takes about 16-17 seconds (intended 10 seconds).
And when you reverse the design: Update=1000, Counter up to 20; it updates consistently every 20-21 seconds as intended.
Setting Rainmeter.exe priority to Realtime seems to offer no improvements.
Definitely seems like a finite limitation on Raimeter's update frequency, and rather arbitrary at that.
EDIT: FYI, I ran this skin independently, nothing else loaded.
