Brother this worked until recently. Now the skin just hides away when playing.
I just got a new laptop and wanted to install the same skin. When i edited the code for the player for some reason it hides away.

This happens because the NowPlaying measure no longer supports Spotify.
Replace iin skin [MeasureStatus] with the following measure:

Code: Select all

[MeasureProcess]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Process
ProcessName=Spotify.exe
; Value will be '1' when the process is running, '-1' when it is not running
IfCondition=(MeasureProcess=-1)
IfTrueAction=[!HideFade]
IfFalseAction=[!ShowFade]
Then refresh the skin
