SEQUENCE QUOTE: I want to create a skin that will display specific quote (in sequence) every hour (or 30 minutes, or 15 minutes, etc). But more importantly, I also want an animation to play when the quote appears. (Maybe even a small sound file).
RANDOM QUOTE: How do I attach a toggle/activate config (animation.ini) command to skin that uses the 'quote plugin' to display random quotes? Am I suppose to somehow attach !toggle/activate to the updatedivider portion of the skin somehow?
(1) How do I get a skin to !Toggle or !Activate Config another skin without ever using mouse actions?
(2) What is more CPU demanding, !Toggle/!Activate Config OR !ShowMeter / !HideMeter?
(1) Is it possible to modify ('skin that works') so a new quote displays at the top of the hour (or 30 minutes, etc)?
(2) Why does updatedivider=360 (in 'skin that works') equal to 60 minutes when normally updatedivider=3600 should equal to 60 minutes intervals?
My working modified skin ("Skin that works") of Jsmorley's sequential quote ( https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?t=14465 ) . However, the quote refreshes based on when it initially loads (1:10 pm, 2:45 pm, etc) rather than based on actual time such top of the hour (1:00 pm, 2:00 pm, etc) or every half hour (1:30 pm, 2:30 pm, etc). The mathematical formula is also why I can use this skin to trigger animation to play when the quote refreshes. I have updatedivider=3 just for testing purposes. I tried fiddling with skin using quote plugins but I can't/don't know (what commands) to trigger the animatiions.
Unusual, UpdateDivider = 360 will display a new quote roughly every 60 minutes.
Unusual, UpdateDivider = 180 will display a new quote roughly every 30 minutes.
Normally, from what I've read, all skins with Updatedivider = 3600 is usually what sets the measure/meter to update every hour. In other words, somethings different with the skin to cause the updatedivider number to deviate from the norm. What numbers do I have to fiddle with to fix that?
Skin that 'works' - animation plays when new quote displays.
My youtube video demonstrating it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0ADpmT6in8&feature=youtu.be&ab_channel=strawberryyogurt0
Updatedivder=3 just for demonstration purposes. I would normally set it to either every 30 minutes or 60 minutes for a new quote.
This next skin has a feature that allows me to display quote on the hour, but I don't know how to have it toggle/activate config my animation files on the hour or every 30 minutes. So this would be another method to display quotes, but unfortunately with this skin, I don't know how to trigger animations.
The "Fascinate" skin contains the "Greet" skin. I can use this to create hourly specific quotes, but I don't know how to add animation to it. I already changed the default greeting ("Good morning" " Good afternoon" "Good night" to quotes in the code, but don't know how to attach my animation file to to code.
