TaskBarTender 1.1 by rev3rsor TaskBarTender 1.1 by rev3rsor
What's new in v1.1: multi-threaded cores; template for easy editing!

--

A simple CPU and RAM indicator that sits on your taskbar! By default, the package should fit the regular windows taskbar (40 pixels high), but might require a little adjusting. Default setting includes 4 CPU cores and 4 RAM bars, though these can be changed fairly easily in the .ini files. Variables are included to easily change dimensions, too.

Please enjoy! Feel free to give me any comments or feedback if I can improve on it :) I generally only do a little bit of tinkering and this is my first original skin.

UPDATE 18/6/17: I'm putting this under CC BY-NC-SA, so you can use this skin with credit, not for profit and under these same conditions.

--

Inspired by:
Round CPU by svenkaboot: svenkaboot.deviantart.com/art/…

CPU temperatures require SpeedFan, and setting the correct values, as shown: svenkaboot.deviantart.com/art/…

--

Versions:

v1.1 19/6/17
-added "CPU [MT]" for CPUs with multi-threaded cores. Each core displays one thread clockwise, one thread counter-clockwise.
-added copy-paste-replace template for easier expansion of no. of CPUs/RAM bars (check the code, scroll down)

v1.0 14/5/17
-initial release

Try clicking the download button on the sidebar, on the right? It should have a green arrow next to it, it's working for me.

Hey, there's a download button on the right, under the favourite button. It should download the .rmskin file :)

is there a way to make it a little bigger?

Hey! Yep, you can change the variables near the start of each .ini file. You could perhaps try doubling each value, or experiment to see what works best. Hopefully the names are somewhat self-explanatory!

CPU: keep "Radius" and "Gap" the same as each other
RAM: to keep it similar to CPU, "Height" is twice "Radius" of CPU, and "Width" is the same as "Thickness" of CPU

I'll consider including a larger version for double-height taskbars in a future release, though I can't accommodate for all scenarios :)

Hey.
I love what you made and having this on my taskbar is quite handy and doesn't take up much space. It is a nice design that goes well with the rest of my rainmeter setup.

I know this next question is a little off topic from your creation, but in the version 1.0 screenshot on this page, you were using a modified version of the Emiko launcher. The one you had was horizontal instead of the default grid. This describes what I am talking about. imgur.com/a/LxLLS
I was messing around with the skin code and wasn't able to make it look like you had it. I would appreciate it if you could let me know what you changed.
If you don't remember what you did, or just don't have the time to explain it, I fully understand. Only reply if it is convenient.

Btw, you make some cool music!

Hey, thanks for the comment! I'm glad you liked my skin, and that was roughly its intended purpose so that's cool :)

It's no problem to answer your question! In the original Emiko, the style "StyleCircleNewLine"'s function is to set X=0 and Y= (previous Y + distance between circles). Rainmeter's documentation (docs.rainmeter.net/manual-beta… at "X, Y") explains the use of the "r", which is relative positioning from the previous meter. In my modified version, I've removed those lines so that each circle is simply drawn to the right of the previous (also using the "r" function).

I'm glad you liked my music, too! Hopefully this helped explain it :D I'm always happy to answer anything you (or others) might want to know.

Have you thought about adding support for changing the number of cpus some has or their gpu?

Hey! The number of CPUs is scalable, to the extent that you can copy-paste the CPU section and change the numbers (e.g. CPU1 to CPU2). Admittedly instructions aren't included but I thought it would be possible to figure out from the code; it would be helpful to include a template in a future release.

As for GPUs, Rainmeter doesn't have a way to measure the GPU usage. In SpeedFan, my particular temperature monitoring program, GPU temps can be found by changing the "SpeedFanNumber" setting, so at the time I didn't want to include a dedicated GPU option that would be pretty similar. (Also, I didn't know how to fit it aesthetically ;p) But improving my skin is definitely a thought, so thank you for the suggestions!

The download's working for me (left-click, downloads the .rmskin file normally), so I'm not sure. Maybe try again?
