3) restart computer after installing the font!

if you get "Invalid settings file in " send me your e-mail adress and i will send you the skin as .zip

Hey man i can't change any of the setting in the menu for some reason. For Example i copy my weather code in but as soon as i click apply or anywhere else it changes back to what it was. Same for all the other settings
Freaky333 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2014
you have to press the enter button on your keyboard after every change you made then press apply ;)

I have done this and tried it over and over again. As soon as I press the enter button it changes back to what it was before.  Thoughts?
EDIT: I also downloaded your v2.4 and have the exact same issue :(

in the second settings menu is a button called settings.ini there you can change everything
after that safe the file and press the apply button
that should work ;)

Really appreciate the quick responses but i still can't change it. If i go to the Rainmeter app i see in the LCARS skin, under windows there is a Settings.ini skin:  If I load this up it brings me to the main settings window. The same on that i get when i click on the setting button in the main LCARS skin interface at the bottom left.
This skin is obviously more complicated that some of the other smaller ones.  So since I am new to coding and not that good it is a bit of a struggle for me to find the appropriate code to change when i Right Click the skin and click Edit.

So i'm kind of at a loss since its not changing on the skin itself and I don't know how to edit the code to change it :(
Its a pity because the skin is amazing and you did such a good job!!!  Any help is really appreciated

oh sry i ment settings INC not INI  :( (Sad) 
the INI is the skin that opens the settings window but the INC is just a text file that has every setting in it
and the lcars skin is over 10.000 lines so that would be a bit difficult to change Nuu

This is awesome! However, one question, is there a way to get the slideshow feature to play a .avi video file? I've downloaded some LCARS animations that would look perfect there but cannot figure out the .ini programming to play it. Any help will be appreciated beyond measure

i dont think you can play a video with a rainmeter skin
well at least i never saw someone who was able to do that
i think thats impossible sry :(

Having problems with this. Every time I attempt to change links, etc. in the settings menu I get an Illegal Path error in the log. I've tried the include button on the interface and just hitting the enter key after typing, but none of it seems to work. I then tried it on a second computer and ended up with the same results. Even trying to change the rank and name will give me the exact same error.
