Alliv2 by SN37 Alliv2 by SN37
Alliv2 for Rainmeter is a somewhat minimalist and stretchable-background tob bar launcher that it is designed to save your desktop space as long as you really need it. it also shows your digital time (24-hour format) on your right-hand size on your screen.



Installation
Just double click and proceed, it's a .rmskin format that launches your appropriate program. If everything fails, try to open the skin up by using 7-zip and extract manually directly to your Rainmeter skin directory.

Features
Unlike the previous version, this skin has a clock on the right hand side of the top bar. There you'll have several links below.


Links: Shows your favorite sites you have visited.

Docs: Shows and launches your Documents directory instead of going through and it also shows how many files are inside in each one.

Apps: Launches your favorite programs you have launched several times. You can edit them as long as you want.

Pics: Shows your local [or removable (if you have a flash drive)] photo directory, and also launches your preferred on-line photo-sharing sites.

Song: Shows your local [or removable (if you have a flash drive)] music directory, and also shows your title of your song and artist (iTunes required).

Net: The so-called your internet browser launcher of choice.

Date: Your time (24-hour format), day, date, month, and year.

Sys: System statistics: Shows your current status on your screen (e.g. your uptime, CPU, RAM, Free space on your hard drive or SSD, your SWAP, and your i/o internet connections. And also shows your recommended programs for system utilities (some software is recommended to launch them to do so).

Today: It's your virtual newspaper, once you wake up and log in, you'll have your today's weather forecast and your on-line news to help you to stay informed for a little bit. It also shows you the analog time and your current day.

Those icons came from ~VClouds, used in the Weather app from my skin.

A few notes
+ Due to the concerns about submitting Rainmeter skins, if you want to submit a remixed version of my skin, just make sure that the skin is packed as a .rmskin file.

+ If you have any issues, I highly recommend you to do a clean re-install of my skin, if it is not possible, do a clean re-install of Rainmeter, before that, just backup your files first.



:bulletblue: Changes: Removed issue: "<!CDATA" bug and made the news feed slim, despite of the sixth through eighth feed absence. If it appears, try to reinstall it, or maybe it's your website feed [try an alternate site that is related to it].

:bulletorange: NowPlaying and file size on "Song" has been changed again, if you see a bunch of digits on the "Song" section, please update it. A Rainmeter 2.1 Beta is required.

I really love this launcher, was exactly what I was looking for, but in trying to add and alter it slighty, I found a button that isn't working, and not sure if you could help me figure out why.

[ACT]
Meter=STRING
X=25
Y=67
StringStyle=NORMAL
StringAlign=Left
FontSize=9
FontFace=#FontCali#
AntiAlias=1
Text=ACT
FontColor=#White#
LeftMouseDownAction=!execute [Advanced Combat Tracker.exe]

Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Advanced Combat Tracker\Advanced Combat Tracker.exe"


I was able to get another button to work, but for whatever reason, this one is not launching.

Didn't you see Leftmousedownaction in the launcher? I'd just wanted to know.

I ended up just adding the entire target line, and that seemed to do the trick.

You should re-install the skin and re-configure the issue you've got. For the weather, you'll need to go to The Weather Channel's official webpage [[link] to find your location. After you have found your location, on your URL, you'll see the 8-digit code. Copy the code and paste it (and replace) on my zip code that I just set it as default, and refresh that skin. Hope that helps.

Sorry for the late respond... ;)

Above most of the elements, there are random white little bars that seem to server no purpose. It's a little annoying, but great theme otherwise.
