Nyx 1.0 by SN37 Nyx 1.0 by SN37
I named it Nyx (meaning Goddess of the Night) instead of Alliv3. This skin shows you some couple of feeds, time and date, and today's weather conditions.

Changing the interface
Requirements: Notepad++ with RainLexer installed.


Weather location
+ While you edit the weather, please go to The Weather Channel's official webpage [link] and type in your location.
+ When the location shows up, you'll notice the 8 digits at the very end of the link in the URL bar in your browser.
+ Copy the 8-digit location code to replace the current one and save it.


Temperature
+ The Fahrenheit scale (on top, while you're editing / line 22) is being set as default. If you preferred to have a Celsius scale (on the bottom / line 23), remove the semicolon on line 23 before the WURL on the bottom, and add a semicolon at line 22 before WURL on the top


RSS Feeds
+ Speaking of RSS feeds, common websites uses those "& # x" characters (with no spaces). If you see one that appears like that like I showed you before, you may have the privilege to add them under the Substitute section on line 29. I hope Rainmeter addresses the issues with the substitute for a moment.


Autoscaling
+ I did this skin with autoscaling, so this skin can have the ability to automatically fit on your screen, depend on what size is it. For more information, visit this [link] for more tips to create a skin just like that to advance your skill you'll need.


Fonts
+ Both Calibri and Calibri Light fonts not included. If you don't have Calibri Light, it means that you don't have an update for that. Windows 8 users, you're fine unless if you do or don't have Microsoft Office installed on your PC's. The best way to do it is to update your Windows or else, you can still run "Calibri" by removing the "Light" under line 15.

Ok, erase the :1 and hit refresh, that should work out. Make sure you got it matched together tho.

Can you try this in XML format? I don't think that the original page isn't going to work like that.

feeds.feedburner.com/Destructo…

Weardly no, It still doesn't work :\ and they have another rss (www.destructoid.com/elephant/i… and it doesn't work either, oh well.

BTW, is it too much to ask if there is a way to limit the amount of characters that can be displayed per line in the feed? If a headline is really long it looks weird and gets over stuff, especially anoying with facebook feeds, any help please?
