Bar Graph display issues

Post by McG00gles »

Hello,

Well, I'm having a bit of a display issue with some horizontal bar graphs. I'm using these to measure my Quad-core CPU. The first two graphs display correctly with the bar front and background being displayed. I then copy and pasted that code two more times for the other two cores. However, I noticed that the background of the bars will not display! (see attached picture)

The other similar issue I'm having is that the text I have next to graph is also not being displayed. I would imagine that the bar background and the text are interdependent on each other, thus why neither of them are showing up below a certain point.

That's it for my issues!

Here's my code and computer details:

Rainmeter Version 1.2 (64-bit)
Windows Vista Ultimate (64-bit)
I have been using the QuadCPU skin by Liquid.Tension as a guide/reference.

Can't have two [sections] in any .ini file with the same name. Look carefully at your code.
