AVENGERS S.H.I.E.L.D. 2.1 by Fonpaolo AVENGERS S.H.I.E.L.D. 2.1 by Fonpaolo
Finally, this is the update of AVENGERS S.H.I.E.L.D. 2.0, with many changes, updates and new functionality, most of them already anticipated in the preview image AVENGERS S.H.I.E.L.D. 2.1 Almost final.

This skin is optimized for HD monitors 1920x1080 and can be adapted for other dimensions.
Smaller or bigger screen dimensions can cause problems for the size of the skins displayed, being too large or small.


Since the differences between the previous and the updated version are many, if you are installing this as an update of the previous version, all the existing files will be backed up in "@ Backup" folder.
If you have modified something, you can find it in the backup folder, just don't modify the rmskin installation settings, your configuration file will be updated maintaining your settings and adding all the new.

If you are installing this skin for the first time, just let the installer do his job, then, using the Options skin, configure all the options for the skins.

For any doubt, or information, click on the "Guide" button to open eight pages pdf file with all the explanations and descriptions of every skin of this suite, I suggest you to read it first.


If you're experiencing problems with Options skin, when you're trying to modify a link or an icon and nothing happens, please follow these steps:

1- try to run Rainmeter with administrator privileges: right mouse click on “Rainmeter.exe” file → Properties → Compatibility (second label) → Run this program as administrator (last option at the bottom);

- if nothing has changed:

2- go to → Avengers\@ Resource\Addons, open the folders, right mouse click on each “.exe” file → Properties → Compatibility (second label) → Run this program as administrator (last option at the bottom).
 


If you want to use this skin suite, you need to install the latest Rainmeter beta 3.2.0 beta r2326 (September 17 2014) or above, because some of the skins are using plugins and functionality
only available starting from this version.    If you don't want to install the beta, you can always use the 2.0 version.

To Windows XP users:
- some of the new plugins and new functions (as Audiolevel and SysInfo plugins, and Mask Image function) aren't available for this System.
- for most of them there's a specific XP variant, or an alternative solution with similar functionality.


Weather.com has discontinued his xml weather data, to fix it:
- right mouse click on the weather skin to open the ini file, find and delete the Url line and then paste this new line:
Url="h ttp://wxdata.#OWN1#/wxdata/weather/local/#OLOC1#?cc=*&unit=#Unit#&dayf=4"
- IMPORTANT - please remove the space between "h" and "ttp".


Or, if you don't want to "fight" with the code,  you can download a fix from here: fav.me/dakie5h
Please, follow the instructions to update the files.

If you have modified the original file and you don't want to lose your changes, remember to save it with another name, before you copy and overwrite it with the updated files.


Rainmeter is available here: rainmeter.net/

So, me being the kind of person who messes around with things, I messed something up. In the Large Launchers option menu, I changed the thing that disables the first launcher to 2. It isn't letting me change it to anything else, and I have no idea how to change it in the config txt. How do I change it back to 2?

I have to find a solution to avoid this problem, since you're not the only one who had this accident... :O_o: 

...however, the solution is simple, right mouse click on a skin, click on the first line (it's the path to the folder), in the new window go up to the @ Resources folder, open it and find the Config.inc file, open it, find CloseLL1 and change the number after the equal sign to 0 or 1.

Click the "OP" icon at the left of the nine small launchers on top of your desktop, click the last label on the left bottom of the window opened "Other", then click on the label "Feeds-Weather".
In your browser, open www.weather.com and type your city, in the input box on top right, the page will redirect to your city, it will appear as "weather.com/weather/today/l/XX…;
Where "XXXX" are four letters, "NNNN" are four numbers, ignore the part after, select the eight digits, copy and paste in the "Location Code" of the configuration skin box, then hit Enter.

Can you please try using "1" as CPU fan sensor?
I know that the sensor number is "wrong", however I tested this and in most cases "0" for System fan and "1" for CPU fan is the correct choice (don't ask me why... :lol: ).

Let me know.

I'm glad you've at least partially solved your problem.
Probably your laptop uses sensors not recognized by Speedfan. I doubt that your game machine doesn't have a fan... ;)

Gaming machine works fine since you told me about the CPU and SYS fan's no matter what Speedfan thinks they are.  Laptop, is a different story, but not a big deal....

It would be really cool if you could do a S.H.I.E.L.D. OS android ui.

Fonpaolo Featured By Owner Edited Jan 6, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
What do you mean with android?

If you want a similar UI for Android, it's impossible since Rainmeter is for Windows only.

If you want something that mimics some android effects and/or animations, well... it takes time and at the moment I have to update my suite (again... :doh: ) to take advantage of all the new available functions in version 4.0.
Anyway, in this last case, you can always suggest something, I can't promise anything... but who knows...

Hello,

I would like to know if it will be possible to modify the "Small Launchers 9_M" to have 18 or more instead of the 9 basic ones and that I can find it in the "Options Buttons".

Thank you

Everything is doable, but requires a lot of work...
- How to do it depends mostly if you want to add to the existing skin or add as a separated skin;
- To have the Options skin with another row of settings, will require to add another "page" (or better .inc file), find the place where to put it and add all the related code to the existing .inc files to show a new page.

Hello,

I want to know if there is a possibility to change the image of the Shield Tag.
I have already tried to change this line
ButtonImage = # @ # \ Images \ Shield Tag \ Shield Button2 # Color1 # 2.png by putting my image but the image does not appear properly.

thanks for the help

Fonpaolo Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Just to be sure: you want to change the button, S.H.I.E.L.D. logo, with one created by you.

In this case, you must have an image, made with three juxtaposed images, with same size, with slight differences, the first one from left for "normal", in the middle for "pressed" and the last on the right for "mouse over".
The button will read the full image as subdivided in three parts, every image will be displayed depending on the mouse action.
Any other image not done in the right way, will be displayed as truncated.

To have the same result, if you want to have a button, you must use the original image dimensions, you can't resize your image, adding W and/or H.
If this is your first attempt, better you first read this: Button Images.

If you have problems, let me know, I'll be glad to help, I can't assure to give you a fast reply, but I'll try.

Unsure if you still follow this, but wanted to let you know that if you decided to change the shield tag display icon to TEXT and then click the text field the numerical value comes up as "0" right about where the selected language is, but it does not affect the numerical value that is in the tag, it leads to a drive. Unsure which. I had to go thru the config.inc under resources folder to be able to edit the numerical value in the tag itself. Figured Id let you know. Im still a novice at these things but if I notice something I try and let the author know. Nice skin.

I suppose you have problems using the "Options" skin, you've already found your location code, DAXX0009, you're trying to paste it in the location box in the weather section and after pressing enter, nothing happens.
If so, tell me what steps you've done and/or what's not happening.

As said above, you need to install previously Rainmeter, then double click on the rmskin file you've downloaded and that's all.
After that, please read the guide, clicking the first button over the big Time skin and follow the instructions.

Hi, this is an amazing theme. I've been using it but I want to know if it's possible to add one more set of launchers like the launcher 2. I tried copying the launcher 2 folder and renaming it to launcher 3 but it's still linked to the launcher 2, if I modify anything in laucher 2 it changes both. There's any way to do something like this? like and additional skin including only the small launcher and the hide/show button to add as a separate skin?
Thank you very much

You've started in the right way, however, how you've experienced, it's not enough, you've to edit the launcherT2.ini file and change in MeterLauncher10, 11, ... LeftMouseDownAction # SLP10#,  # SLP11# and so on.
The easiest way is to directly write/paste the correct shortcut to the program you want to use, I won't tell you to update the Options skin adding another launchers page...

If you use the "monitoring" version, it's a little more complicated, since you also need to change the # SL2Data10#, # SL2Data11# and so on, in MeasureSL2Progr10, 11, ... write the correct program executable for every launcher.
(e.g. notepad.exe)

I hope this still be useful, if you don't have already found the solution by yourself.

This skin is awesome, thanks for this. However, while customizing it, I have encountered a small problem. In the options, under "Large Launchers", there is an option to disable the first launcher with a variable, either "0" or "1". However, attempting to press the "1" key, hit the "2" key as well and hastily pressed enter. So now it says "21", the launcher is disabled, and I cannot edit the textbox, it is gone. It shows only "2", but I cannot edit it as I could before. Halp?

Well... I didn't thought about this situation, now I have to find a solution to avoid this problem.

Going back to your problem, you have to manually edit the "Config.ini" file, open it with right mouse click on a skin, click on the text on top, "Avengers\...", this will open the skins folder, browse to "@ Resources" folder, find "Config.ini and open it with a text editor (usually, installing Rainmeter, the file will be opened with Notepad, use the open command, with right mouse click, or double click on it).
Once opened, find "CloseLL1" and after the "=", change 21 to 1 or 0.
Save the file and open the Options skin as usual, now it'll work again.

First of all, it is the best skin I have ever seen. You did a wonderful job.
on my weather, however, I dont think the skin is not showing temperautre unig correctly... 
It shows ?WFUN# instead of degree C or F
It could happen because my system locale is Korea instead of US.
Do you have any idea how I may be able to fix it?

I can't understand for what reason you have this problem, have you manually edited something?

If so, can you tell me what you've done?
...or if you've not edited anything, have you encountered a problem during the configuration of this suite?

Last but not least, sorry for the late reply.
