You have to use the variable names in your shape meter.
You do not need to specify the file name, it writes to the current file by default.
Make sure #PlaceholderFill# and #PlaceHolderStroke# are defined in [Variables] section of the skin.

I want to change another skin, so I specified the filename, this is a separate skin from the one I want modified

Are you going to specify a number of colors to pick from or are you using colors from an image?
For some Reason, the square root of X2 does not involve X

Rainmeter identifies a skin by its config name, not at all by the name of the .ini file. This can be explained and understood easilly knowing that only one single skin (.ini file) can be loaded at a time from any config. There are extremely few bangs requiring the name of the file as a parameter (even if there indeed are a few). !SetVariable is not one of these.

:bow: {This is me, Bowing Out}

There are too many 'chefs' in this mix already!

To accomplish what the OP wants, they need to read the manual Basic Tutorials and have a general understanding of !SetVariable, !WriteKeyValue, @include files, variables, and 'escaped' variables.

Until then, the only way this will happen is if someone writes the entire code (not what I will do), and then explains how it all works. :x

Steps they need to take:
They need to decide where the variables for color will be saved when selected in the 'settings' skin, either in an 'included' variables file or the actual skin.

Then write (using !WriteKeyValue in the 'setting' skin) those values to the 'included' file or to the actual skin's [Variables] section.
Then refresh the skin(s) that use the updated variables.
The variables need to be in the meter color parameters, not hard-coded color values.

---

It sounds simple, but a general understanding of how things work will make it possible for the OP to modify any skin.
Sorry I can not help any more at this time... Best of luck. :rosegift:

SystemVisualizer.rar
So how can I say this...? IT FINALLY WORKED,
but well, not like you said well,
i tried to use what i was really wanting, a setting.ini of another skin, i read its codes and understood that if i put all my RRR,GGG,BBB lines in a "variables3.ini" and do with that the skin would read them would work perfectly,
so in the other skin's own settings there was already a !WriteKeyValue that rewritten "variables3.ini" so with it rewriting variables3 and my skin reading variables3 did exactly what I wanted.
Which was to change the colors with a skin apart from "settings.ini" I'll show the lines of codes here and make the .rar available for them to take a look at

Thank you so much, I think that's all I wanted to do in this skin it's already been done, it's finished, thanks everyone for your help!
