It took me a while to figure out how to use Rainmeter, but I managed to get custom skins working. I'm using the Persona 3 one.

P3ing it up! They should make a P3 FES one and make the date stuck on March 31th.

That's cool.  Too bad I'm not into Persona.

That's probably the most awesome thing I'm never going to use.

How'd you do it? I got rainmeter and got the Persona3 folder in the skins folder. But it doesn't show up when I try to choose a skin from Rainmeter.

Awesome! So going to try getting the P3 one to work :D

#11 Posted by RedEyesBlueBunny (1011 posts) -

#12 Posted by Hourai (2795 posts) -

Looks pretty cool.

@TripMasterMunky:
 
First, you have to go into the FONT folder within the Persona 3 file. Right-click and 'install' the file inside the folder.
 
In Rainmeter, right-click into Configs, and then Manage Skins:

Phew, Rainmaker isn't exactly user-friendly. Here's how I got it to work:
 
 •  Install Rainmaker
 •  Put the Persona folder into My Documents/Rainmaker/Skins
 •  Start up Rainmaker
 •  Right-click anywhere on the default skin
 •  Go into Configs > Persona, then click on main.ini
 •  Simply drag it to the top-right, then disable everything you don't want via the same method (for example, Configs > Enigma > Sidebar > Clocks > Little-Clock-Left.ini)
 
That should do the trick. Rainmaker is a massive pain to use, but it's worth spending the time to figure out - the Persona clock is absolutely stellar.

Awesome. Thanks Guys. Looks great. 
 
EDIT - Is there anyway to get the moon cycle working properly? Mine reads as the next full moon happening on 2.03?

#16 Posted by ArclightBorealis (1563 posts) -

#20 Posted by TimeFugitive (65 posts) -

Thanks for the heads up!  Not a huge fan of persona but I love the look of it.

#21 Posted by Agent_Lost (899 posts) -

Great, now I need to know how to setup the weather.

#22 Posted by PK_Koopa (583 posts) -

I can get the Persona 3 one working, but for some reason the Persona 4 one doesn't work.
Still prety damn cool though.

I asked the author about it and he replied with:
 
"Yeah, it should work 100%, or at least it has for the people I've tested it with, and myself.
If it seems off, open the file with "Skin Menu" -> "Edit Skin", then scroll down and enter your timezone details.
By default, it's +0 GMT, because I'm in the UK."

Blagh, Mac only. Sometimes, I feel like society as a whole shifts mediums without fucking telling me.

#25 Posted by Zidd (1857 posts) -
@DriveByLawsuit: Its Windows only. There is probably software out there that can do it on Mac OS X.
#26 Posted by Tirrandir (217 posts) -
@TripMasterMunky: Doing some snooping, it looks like the API it pulls from to determine the next one is a day countdown clock. It's not that the next one was on 2.03 but that you had a little over 2 days until the next one. It's accurate, but not game accurate.

The Dark Hour adds an extra hour every night right?  Finally, i can get something done.

POW Block, anyone?

Is Rainmeter related to Rainlendar?  I remember thinking when Vinny mentioned wanting a Persona 4 clock that someone could just make a Rainlendar skin.

I know I'm a month late here, but I just got this skin today, and that really annoyed me, so I worked out how to fix that. 
 
To get it to tell you the day without the decimal places, you need to edit the regular expressions slightly, as it reads the data from a website that presents it in that form, so you need to make it stop reading before the decimal point. If you know regular expressions, right click the skin, click 'skin menu' and then 'edit skin' and look through that file.  
 
If you don't, and you still care about a fix, I can hook you up. Also, I 'fixed' the fact that the word 'next' and the number should be a slightly different colour from each other, though I guess that's just preference. I also tried to make it so that Saturday was Sa rather than just S etc, but due to the font being caps lock only, it looks terrible.

I like that desktop, where'd you get it? This is the one I'm using at the moment:

Looks like it's time to go get a beef bowl...

#42 Posted by Daveyo520 (7000 posts) -

I wish I knew how to get this to work...

#43 Posted by Peaches4444 (2 posts) -

I like it. Only thing that's a bit irksome is it considers new moons the same thing as a full moon. Oh, the decimal point instead of just a whole number for how long before a full moon.
 
Still not finished with Persona 4, but I grabbed the skin anyways. Very nice. Does it simply randomise the weather icon though?

#44 Posted by Arestice (468 posts) -

That P4 clock is rad.

#45 Posted by Chris2KLee (2338 posts) -

Cool, thx for posting this.

@Rinkalicous: Would you be so kind as to explain how you got rid of the decimal places on the Clock?
#47 Posted by Rinkalicous (1340 posts) -
@Xeiphyer: I would love to! 
  
I'm assuming you mean the decimal places on the moon phase? 
 
Well, you've got two options. One, I can send you my skin file (I'll swap the date back to American if you want it that way), or you can give it a shot yourself. 
  
The downside/potential upside to using mine is I changed quite a few things, such as making it so night starts a bit later, and afternoon goes on longer etc. I also changed the colours of the word 'next' and the number to better represent what I thought it was in game. 
 
Here's mine- right click your clock thing, go to skin menu, and click edit skin. Replace what's in the notepad with this: (warning- massively long)
 
If you want to change it yourself, what you need to do is again, go to skin menu -> edit skin. Ctrl-f 'RegExp' and you'll arrive at a long line of what will probably look like nonsense. A little way along, you'll see ' <daysToPhase>(.*?)'. Delete everything after the  <daysToPhase> bit. Delete the entire line after that last ">" sign. Replace the rest of the line with this:   
 
(\d\d|\d).*?<xmlVersion>B</xmlVersion>)|(<\?xml version="(.*?)".*?<xmlVersion>[^B]{1}</xmlVersion>)" 
 
Now, it will read the information from the website ignoring everything after the decimal point. The problem now is, the text has been aligned to account for the extra digits. You need to move it along a bit. Don't worry, this is easy. 
 
Ctrl-F "[MeterDaysTo]" If you find it multiple times, the one I'm talking about is the last one. A little way down, you'll see "X= Somenumber". The goal here is to change the x until the 'Next: 12' or whatever is in a sensible place. Basically, change the number, save the file, right click the skin and press refresh all. See what difference that made, and then adjust it again until it looks good to you. 
 
I hope I explained that well enough, and good luck!
#48 Posted by Xeiphyer (5611 posts) -
@Rinkalicous: Thanks so much! I wasn't expecting a reply so fast haha.
 
So I got it all working now thanks to your instructions. I tried copypasting the code but it constantly displayed Dark Hour for some reason.
 
If its not too long to explain, could you say how you changed the font color on the text? Its way too light to be readable on most backgrounds.
 
 
Thanks a lot!
#49 Posted by Rinkalicous (1340 posts) -
@Xeiphyer: Constantly displayed dark hour? Weird.  
 
Wait, I think I may have worked out why. 
 
Try this:  
Backup your existing one just in case, but I'm 99.9% sure that will work. 

If not, or you want to change anything, brace yourself for some instructions; 
 
Go back to [MeterDaysTo], where you changed the X = number thing. in this area, you'll see something that says  FontColor=#fontColor.Text#. Change everything after the equals sign to change the colour, giving the colour in the format  "76, 144, 210," where I THINK the numbers represent Red, Green and Blue respectively. I don't fully understand that though, but I found a thing online that converted colours to this 3 number format, and used it to find a darker blue.
 
If you're using my text document, just above [MeterDaysTo] you'll see [MeterNext]. This is the same thing, only it controls the word 'Next:' rather than the numbers. You can change the colour of this independently, as well as the positioning (using the X and Y), or the font size, as you see fit. If you're not using mine, I can't actually remember how I split the Next and the days into two separate things, so I couldn't really tell you how to do that. 
 
Hope this helps!

@Rinkalicous: Aha perfect! I just stole the colour you were using, its much better now. Thanks a lot!
