Fallout V.A.T.S. by shortjenny4 Fallout V.A.T.S. by shortjenny4
Been missing playing Fallout 3, so I made this.

Indicators Included:
-Time/Date
-Gmail new mail count
-Weather for today, tomorrow, and day after tomorrow
-Winamp
-Power levels for laptop users
-RAM
-CPU

It comes in different colors just like the real Fallout game. Just edit the .ini file.
If any issues arises (crossing my fingers they don't), please just contact me.

I have a slight problem with mine. It didn't bother me at first, but over the months I have had this skin the weather blip that displays tomorrows weather is blank. I have tried looking into the coding myself, but I have yet to find the problem. Any help would be appreciated.  imgur.com/mlZmteT

Got a problem with the Winamp player;

Whenever I play a playlist, each song is numbered. However, zeros don't display, and instead, are replaced with ''Winamp''.
For example, the 490th song in a playlist would be numbered ''49Winamp. Artist - Song''
Worse for, say, the 200th song, which displays as ''2WinampWinamp. Artist - Song''

I'm a perfectionist, and this is f*cking with me to the max. Dafuq to I do?

find the winamp.ini file and edit it in notepad.
under the subheading "measures", the third measured down should be called [WinampTitle]. In this measure the fifth line (last of the measure) will say:
Substitute=" - Winamp":"","***":"","0":"Winamp"

delete the last two terms so it reads
Substitute=" - Winamp":"","***":""

What this line did is substitute every instance of "0" with the text "Winamp"

save the file and refresh the skin.
I'm not 100% sure how winamp actually works but that will fix it. Any problems it does cause will be extremely minor, as in you may have a zero instead of it saying "winamp" at some point. However I have tested it and can't find any faults.
Worst case scenario you can always change that line of code back.

Hey, I am new to rainmeter and I figured I might as well start big, I am planning on making a somewhat functioning pipboy, with pressable stats, items and data buttons which open different pages on the pipboy, displaying different pieces of information.

I have it fairly worked out, the buttons and some other stuff is done, but I was wondering if you would allow me to use some of your skins (edited of course) for me to use as a basis for the border display and some of the other pieces, including the limb stats page and whatnot.
I will credit you of course and give you a link once finished :)

SWEET! I love FO3 and FNV. The only thing I can see to improve on this is maybe your next one based around the PIPboy so you can have links and other stuff. N/J I love this one though.

I love the concept behind this skin, however, is there any way to make it so that when displaying a 24hour clock (I.E 15:32 rather than 3:32 P.M) without the numbers overlapping?

I just came a little. This is so awesome. Once again, I'm sick of the constant pages and pages of the same crap. Either a shitload of boring ass, bland as hell, boxes rainmeter skins that basically just look how my computer already look, which if I wanted, I wouldn't be trying to customize.... but here comes another fantastic video game skin that is just awesome. Too bad I won't know what to do now with my bioshock one. My mind will explode trying to pick from them, because they're both my two favorite games.

So I am new to this whole thing, how do you fix the squished numbers on the clock? And how do you change the winamp to actually play music?!

squished numbers on the clock, change font size in the .ini file and the winamp, you have to have winamp running

i love the idea! i have a couple questions though. 1. are the temps im getting for my area or what? and 2. on the clock the numbers all squished together. the seconds are okay but the right hand minute number is under the colin and the seconds partially and the righthand hour number is also shifted right (under the colin next to it). Any idea how to fix the clock?

here's the wp from above: [link]

here's 2 resources i use (beside google images)
1-[link] this was where i originally found the above wp but i think it was removed. nonetheless a great resource about everything fallout related.

2-[link] if you're playing on the pc, you can get your own screenshots using a console command. i'm not 100% on this since i play on a xbox but seems do-able.
