[Configuration] / Notepad++ with RainLexer is required.
After downloading the skin, double-click on it and install. After installation, while the skin appears, click on "Edit Skin" at the bottom of the links to edit the variables that you like to customize (e.g. colors, background, location, round meters, shortcuts, etc).

The weather feed is also easier to change in the variables [.inc file], just type in your city and state / country [e.g. London, UK] in line 34. On line 36, you can either change the variable to either Fahrenheit or Celsius when it comes to the temperature units.

*This weather part of the skin is originally coded from Weather Underground from ~maminscris and ~Yelleke.





[Troubleshooting]
If you have trouble with the skin, the best way to deal with errors is to just re-install the skin and re-do your location.
*Update: Now you can re-size the fonts and re-shape the coordinates all you want [depending on your resolution] and edit the whole links.


I hope you'll enjoy it :).

Could you give the directions on how to manipulate the panel's transparency but keep the text from fading out as well? Also, someone else asked for the bottom bars, and I would love to see the whole package! Thanks.

Go to the skin's folder and click on where it says Nyx2 Variables.inc, then when you see where it says BackgroundColor (this shows where the red, green, blue, and transparency), and adjust the transparency to either opaque or transparent, even you can actually change the color you want.

If you're talking about what I'd proposed, it's right there as a screenshot. :)

Thanks! I found the comment from the contest about changing the transparency shortly after asking. Love the side bar, can't wait for the horizontal bar!

It's just only a side skin, you don't have to worry about it. Welcome to Rainmeter tho. ;)

Hey, great work with this! One question. For some reason, when I try to add certain programs to the sidebar, they won't open. Programs include Steam.exe, VLC.exe, aimp3.exe. Firefox still works, and when I add Firefox to the newly added slots, it works. Do you have any idea as to the cause of this issue?

Might there be a way to have more than nine links in this skin? If not, totally fine. This is a great skin and nicely minimal, which helps keep my dekstop uncluttered, not to mention messing with the colors to sorta theme it to the wallpaper I'm using.

Copy and paste and rename the links and make sure you align the Y coordinates, so you can prevent this from being duplicated. Thanks, btw. :)
