Due to the [PlayStop #SoundFile2#] bang of the MouseLeaveAction option of the [ImageMeter] meter. The two meters ([MeterBackground] and [ImageMeter]) are overlaping each other, so when you're hovering the mouse over [MeterBackground] or clicking it, the sound is played, however when you're leaving this meter, you're leaving the [ImageMeter] meter as well, which has the mentioned PlayStop bang, stopping the playing.

Additional note: PlayStop doesn't admit parameters. So when it is executed, it stops any sound file, not just the one posted as parameter (in this case #SoundFile2#). In fact the #SoundFile2# parameter in such cases is ignored by Rainmeter. There is no way to stop playing just certain file.

u think its possible ti find another way with condition something like that

Code: Select all

IfCondition=#Var#=0
IfTrueAction=[Play #SoundFile#]
IfFalseAction=[Playstop]

Not clear what is your intention. So, what do you want to achieve?

Not sure I follow. What should go on when you click to one or the other meter? What should go on when you're hovering the mouse over one or the other meter? And finally what when you're leaving any of those meters?
Just note that unfortunately as said, there is not possible to execute a PlayStop bang to stop certain sound. Again: in the IfFalseAction=[PlayStop #SoundFile#] option, the PlayStop bang doesn't accept parameters, you don't have and can't add a a sound file to be stopped the playing of only that one. However even if you're adding the parameter (as you did) the bang stops all playing, because Rainmeter simply ignores the not-permitted parameters.
When a PlayStop bang is executed, all sound playing are stopped immediately. And even more: if you're executing a PlayStop bang, it stops ALL currently playing sounds which have been started by a Rainmeter skin. I mean by ANY skin. So, if your skin starts playing a sound and into ANY OTHER skin a StopPlay bang is executed, it stops playing even the sound started into the current skin, not just those played into the skin which executed the PlayStop bang.

IfConditions have to be used into measures. They are not working on meters. But you've added them to a meter ([MeterBackground]) that's why you never get them executed. Move them to a measure.

Glad you got it working as expected. Is there anything else I can help you with?

Ok, recommend you two more things to do:
  • Remove the parameter of the PlayStop bang, used in the IfTrueAction3 option of the [ImageNumberCalc] measure. The option now looks this way: IfTrueAction3=[PlayStop #SoundFile#]. But as explained above, the PlayStop bang doesn't accept parameters, even if it does work when the parameter is there. But it shouldn't be. So, recommend to remove it, replacing the above IfTrueAction3 option with the following one: IfTrueAction3=[PlayStop].
  • ALWAYS quote parameters, especially those representing file paths/names. This is not important as long as there is / are no space(s) in the path. But when the path includes a space (or more - doesn't really matter how many), the quotes are becoming mandatory. Without them, the bang doesn't work. So, for instance recommend you to replace the IfTrueAction2 option of the same [ImageNumberCalc] measure (IfTrueAction=[Play #SoundFile2#]) with something like this: IfTrueAction=[Play "#SoundFile2#"]. Here you have a little bit more detailed description of why is this necessary.
