No problem that you didn't get around to it. I don't expect everyone here in the forum to leave their things immediately and take care of Prince Youkai's worries. So all is well ...Active Colors wrote: ↑March 4th, 2021, 7:22 pm Hey, I wanted to get to your problems earlier but got busy with personal things so I am writing after all this time. I see you have already resolved your problems and what you are looking for is the code optimization help. From what I see is you have optimized it very well so far. I can only recommend you to consider changing your way of coding. It is something personal and that would probably require rewriting the whole skin. But since you have several times mentioned that you are a codeblind with your own code then I suppose it is within your interest to consider this.
I already have forgotten when I have been codeblind the last time because I have worked on the ways to reduce the amount of code in my skins
Right, I got a lot of things under control in the meantime. Partly because I have discarded things, partly because I have found the error itself.
But all in all it is not finished yet. Some things still need to be implemented and some things are running, but not the way I want them to.
Jo, your skin looks very tidy. And I definitely want to do that with my skins, as well as ultimately with the SlideShow.
With the next skin, where I (as a vacation break from my SlideShow) just work on it, there I'm already a little different on the way in the code regarding overview and order. All in all, you will recognize my coding style in the end, but (hopefully) tidier.
Whether I succeed depending on the complexity of the respective skin remains to be seen ... but I try. Alone already for one. Because in the end Rainmeter is only a hobby for me, for which I have just (among other things because of Corona) a little more time for. But this is not the norm. And if I have a skin/suite once finished, it will be very likely that I make a year or longer then again nothing more. And then it's an advantage to have a proper code, if you then later go to his skins again ran.
Yes curious that the one rmskin package was wrong again.balala wrote: ↑March 4th, 2021, 8:11 pm I really like it. The movement of those buttons is extremely well looking, I like it very much. Congratulations!
Now it really doesn't, but in the previous package it was there. You can easily check, the uploaded package is still there.
To be honest it's extremely hard for an "outsider" to follow what's going on in your skin. Not sure I can deal with those variables, at least not too quickly. Have to study a little bit the code, but definitely not now, due to the time-lack. Sorry, but will do this probably in the upcoming weekend. Sorry...
Regarding its structure, yep, it's correct this time, as said previously.
But anyway, if the last one worked now everything is good. This is as I said also the latest version of my slideshow ... so also the version, which you can look at then gladly, in Punkto my described worries, problems etc..
But as I have already written "AC", do not stress. "Good things come to those who wait" as the saying goes. And I have now on the WE (family / reallife conditioned) for Rainmeter now so or not much time.
In this sense ... do as you have time and desire. Of course, you are welcome to use one or the other idea from my SlideShow for your own purposes. I have and do not do otherwise ...
My current suite I'm working on (where the slideshow is part of) ... is based in one or the other place on code snippets of others here from the forum, or from skins at DeviantArt.
And if everything works out, my finished suite will have a strong resemblance to this -> Screentron UI
The look of the head of my SlideShow already indicates this.
Everything from the style from the link I will not take over. First because I'm limited to 2 screens, of which only one will run Rainmeter. And that one also has only 1440x900 resolution. So not too much space for elements and optical effects.
Secondly, I'm changing a few things in the visuals. One is that I don't use the font "Orbitron" but "Square721 BT", because the former is not monospace, which is crap for skins where numbers are used. And Square721 BT is nearly similar enough for me. But I haven't found something better yet.
Also I change the number of colors that will be used. Should also be noticed in my SlideShow, that there is yellow among other things, which is not the case with the screens from the link.
But anyway, that I do not convert the style from the link 1:1 has also the reason that I want to be on the safe side, if there are any copyright rights ... with such a thing I do not really deal.
But back to my SlideShow ... as already said, do when and how you have time. No stress ...
