The new V2 of Sigma does NOT require any hiding windows/skins to update; everything happens automatically.
@Yincognito : You are right I didn't like transparent skin, I just settled for one

@eclectic-tech : That's WOOW --> it doesnt require hiding windows or skin. I am now using your clock. Your Clock is best one if hiding was not an issue!!! Thanks for updating the skin :)

For anyone wanting to use Sigma Clock : make sure to edit this:
WallFile=C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\CachedFiles\CachedImage_1920_1080_POS4.jpg in Sigma\@Resources\Vairables1.inc
set username to your username and file present in CachedFiles at C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\CachedFiles\

@justachild Nice, but you should know that, as explained already, the name of that wallpaper file won't be exactly the same for everyone.

@eclectic-tech I'm sure there is a way to get the right files even when changing wallpaper every minute. Maybe in the slideshow file from Themes, or in the "web" wallpaper folders...

@justachild I have an update that avoids manually editing; it will be posted after a bit more testing

@ Yincognito Yes, I'm looking at the options and trying to handle as many wallpaper variables as possible. We'll see how 'automatic' I can (or want to) make it...
