Different Resolutions!
I'm currently not taking resolution requests! Sorry for the inconvenience!
Max resolution I can offer is 1920 x 1080, sorry!

Resolutions made:
1920 x 1080
1680 x 1050
1600 x 900
1440 x 900
1366 x 768
1024 x 768

    Updated the weather parser to use's new XML feed URL.

    Changed Coretemp download link back to Mediafire because its parent website is being shown as Red Flagged. This event occurs differently depending on what web browser you're using.
    This will be the last time I'll change the download link unless it's absolutely necessary.

    Special thanks to user Unramaan for alerting me to this issue!

    Changed Coretemp download link back to its parent website.
    ::Message to Users!::
            There seem to be no more trojan warnings coming from the program's installer. If this changes again, please, anyone inform me!
            I'll have a clean, safe version of the program ready for download ASAP.

    Changed Coretemp download link because of dropbox blocking my account due to too much traffic.
    The file is now being hosted on Mediafire.

    Changed the CoreTemp download link. This is the correct, and clean, version of CoreTemp.

    Temporarily took away the resolution request button.
    Removed the version history tab in the config.
    Other minor changes to the config.

    Added themes to the skins features.
    Added four themes: Green, Red, Blue, and Dark Orange

    Fixed Weather Code entry box not displaying in the proper location.
    Changed how the Recycle Bin app handled displaying the 'Empty' option when showing its current size.
    Better clarified how you should enter your email username and password.
    Added ‘Version Information’ tab to the config.
    Removed many duplicate and unused images.
    Added variable so users can more easily edit the maximum number of emails that the skin will register.

    Added 1024 x 768 to the config.

    Fixed minor bug that would cause swap on the system taskbar to overlap other entries. 

    New Config app that supports the new features in version 2.0
    System taskbar added.
    Program taskbar added.
    Better support for the new D2D rendering engine in Rainmeter 3.0
    Fixed a bug where the SWAP values would go into massive negative numbers.
    Better way of making new resolutions. I'm still figuring out a way to make it 100% automatic.
    Mixed weather units. Example: Celsius while using Mph for windspeed.

    Now loads the Config.ini when installed.
    Added 1600 x 900 to the config.
    Fixed positioning of the Recycle Bin meter.
    Fixed random typos throughout the skin.

    Added different resolution options to the config

    Initial release

Known Bugs!
When installing the skin or running the config app, Rainmeter becomes unresponsive and locks up. 

    Info about this bug:
        Thanks to H0rwood, I've found out that the config tool is causing the issue. 
        At this moment I'm not quite sure what's in the config that's causing this to happen.
        Currently, the workaround is to force close Rainmeter. After that you should be able to edit the '' file and then launch the apps individually.

Theme Help!
I've added themes for the current release. So far I have green, red, blue, and dark orange themes, but I'd like to add more.
If anyone's good with PS and your interested in helping make more themes, don't hesitate to contact me!

Ah ok cool! I see them now, weird didn't before.
Daveyburr Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2015
FiiZzion, is it ok to link my video tutorial here of your skin in order to help people install it?
May relieve some stress off comments for you.…

I have also linked your Deviantart main page in addition to this page in my description if you want to check it out.

Cool bud? Thank you for the amazing skin, it really is the best one I think out of all the skins I have. Nice, clean, beautiful, and simple.
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Edited Sep 1, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Yup, it's completely ok, I'd have to be crazy to tell you it wasn't ok! The only thing, just as I stated in the comments in the video, is the misinformation about the MSI Afterburner plugin and the associated tool. If that information could be portrayed / corrected via annotations or by some other means, that'd be great. I don't know if there are any other ways than annotations, but I thought I'd ask. 

But to reiterate, I have absolutely no problem linking the video. Though, as I just stated above, if that MSI issues was fixed it'd be nice, but if it can't be fixed it's not the end of the world.

Glad to hear that you like the skin :)

Good idea, I will put an annotation on it!

Coretemp doesn't work on Windows 10.
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Edited Aug 11, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I'd give it time to update. If it doesn't update, I'll be forced to fine an alternative... wee...

Edit: I also guess that that's a lesson for ya. Not everything is updated or ready for when a brand new OS comes out. Everything takes time, friend.
griddark Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2015
Yeah I know, but I've been on windows 10 for 6 months now, just looking for a rainmeter that doesn't use coretemp :P might be time to start making my own skins, but where do you find the time :)
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Wow, well that's some nice info to know about windows 10 and Rainmeter working with it straight outta the box. I'm hoping I'll finally be able to get back into making Rainmeter skins like I was before. The few things that're acting as mild deterrents are, at least at this current time, I don't want to install Windows 10 just yet and on the more personal side, my health (Not gonna delve further into that one.). Now, back onto talking about Rainmeter, I'm not quite sure if Rainmeter will gain more functions or if it'll loose some when migrating to Windows 10. One function that Rainmeter lost with Windows 8 / 8.1 was the Aero Blur ability no longer being a built-in feature. If someone wants to include something like the Aero Blur feature it requires some decent graphical work if you want to pull it off nicely.

Speaking of graphical work, sadly, I'm not someone that possess that level of graphical experience. It's definitely one of the main areas that I want and need to improve on the most as I feel it would bring my skins up at least one more notch. Well, at least in my opinion ;) ... Another thing I've thought about doing is creating some form of a hub that someone could use for virtually anything, and I think I have some decent concepts in my head, but I have almost zero ability to make any type of advanced graphics that the project would need to have. I plan to open a GitHub repository and begin some form of work on it. It'll most likely end up being slowly developed as I have a few more things to take care of that I view as a bit more important.

Anyways, I've rambled on for long enough at this point. Thanks for the insight about Windows 10!

I can't seem to find the 1920 by 1080 wallpaper, anyone know where I can find it? Description says it's located in the package but I'm not sure where.
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Edited Aug 2, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Look in the "Suite AddOns" Folder in Wisp's root folder. All wallpapers are there as well as many other things should you need them.

Edit: For more clarity, if the wallpaper doesn't fit as it should, look at this point in the FAQ. It should fix you right up.
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Coretemp's website shown under a red screen is known and a fix will be put in place ASAP. Personal issues aren't allowing me to update properly but should be in place within two days (hopefully) of this message being posted. Should take only a few minutes of time when I get the chance to properly transition download links or even make a package where a clean version is distributed. Hell, with how Coretemp has been degrading in quality like a landslide, I may even move over to a completely new program. Sad to see one of the earlier Rainmeter-Plugin fall to this level of low. Times change I guess...

Anyways, enough rambling, for now I'll use my previously used method. CLICK HERE to download a clean version of Coretemp.

The Program taskbar isn't showing the date or time, how to fix? :D
SoMini Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2015
Not sure if you still update this or not, love the skin. Just a quick thing, Everything is working properly, except on the taskbar it isn't showing the date or time. Do you know of anything to fix this? If not it's alright, i won't die without it just it's offcenter because it isn't there and it drives me nuts haha
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Check your notes.
lnp00 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2015
Nice looking, clean skin.

Unfortunately the only thing that works on my system is the Date.  I tried to load Weather but all it shows are a bunch of percent signs with numeric values.  I realize these represent parameters, but I cannot figure how to use them.  I modified the URL to use my location, still no joy.

I tried to paste the URL into my browser, but all I got was a web page telling me "This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below."

What am i doing wrong?
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Edited Jul 19, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Sorry for the delay. I've been having some issues IRL and haven't been able to to keep up with the comments as much as I would've liked.

This should get you going;
Once you open Wisp's config and navigate to the "Weather" section and click, "Get Your Location Code!". When you arrive at the site that shows you your location code, try to enter the closest area, street, town or your area of residence that's closest to you instead. or you can enter your exact residence for an even more accurate reading. Once you get the code for the location

I once helped someone with the same issue and this is what I sent him as a rough guide :

It's not the prettiest example, but it gets the job done. Once you get your code the only thing left is to paste into the "Location Code" box.

If it doesn't work there are three things to try:
    1.) Reload Rainmeter
    2.) Completely shut down Rainmeter 
or 3.) Reinstall Wisp and things should work fine and dandy.

Just try any other thing before uninstalling and reinstalling either Rainmeter or Wisp; those should be there as your last resort options. I'm also willing to use Skype if you would prefer that method of help. If that is the case, then we'll move on to using notes to communicate as to not display usernames to the masses... I hope you understand! :)

Hope this helps, and once again, sorry for the delay! 
    Enjoy Wisp!

When I first installed, I am fairly certain the weather worked.  However, it does not work now and I have tried multiple location codes.  Any ideas?
Great work

isnt there a red main wallpaper
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Sorry for the delay. Yes, all themes have their respective wallpapers included. You can find them by going into Wisp's root folder, opening the "Suite AddOns" folder and all of the wallpapers are there.

Hope this helps!

I love the system taskbar skin but problem is it doesn't show net up down speed, how can i config that?
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Edited May 3, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
You'd be able to add that in yourself, but it would take some work. Since this was my first time ever attempting a "taskbar", the way it's written is quite messy. The reason for the taskbars were for people, like myself, who have two or more monitors that have the ability to watch and see if their computer is operating at 100%. The things that seemed most important were CPU Temp and Load, GPU Temp and Load, RAM, and last but not least, the SWAP value. The only reason the time and date are there is because I needed some way of knowing how long I've been on the computer and knowing when I should stop playing a video game and focus on other matters.

In short, I could add the Net Values to the taskbar, but I currently don't have the time, nor do I have the effort to add such a small feature. I'm sorry, but my personal health, state of mind, and wellbeing take priority of this.
alienhunter595 Featured By Owner May 4, 2015
that's fine and i hope you will add this feature in your next project cause i need it badly

GPU Temp and Usage not working. I have already installed MSI Afterburner v4.1.0.7103 and it's running in the background. What can I do? Also I skipped email settings during first run. How can I manually enter them?
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner May 1, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
When you ran "Wisp's.rmskin" file, did you give the permission to install the MSIAfterBurner.dll that was packaged with it? That may be the culprit of that small, little hiccup. For the next issue there are two things that can be done. If the text field entries haven't been messed with, then you can enter your info their. If you don't have access to those, then open up your "" in Wisp's root folder. Once open, you should be able to find all info pertaining to emails on lines "91" through "99".  Hopefully this should help with the issue you're running into! If it doesn't then just shoot me another message here, or you can contact me via email.
aniruddha90 Featured By Owner May 2, 2015
Do I have to install MSI AfterBurner in default location? Can't seem to get it working. I gave permission to install MSIAfterBurner.dll.
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner May 4, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
All it should take is downloading MSI Afterburner, install it, and make sure it's running. The only thing that might have to be done is to minimize Afterburner so it'll go / stay in the systems tray / notification bar. If you close Afterburner the meter won't work. Afterburner must be running for this skin to get any information about your GPU. It's just like the other program, CoreTemp, that shows your CPU information. In order for CoreTemp to get your CPU's temperature, CoreTemp must be running to get the information.
aniruddha90 Featured By Owner May 5, 2015
Don't know what's happening!! I will just have to use it without GPU monitor. Great skin by the way:-)

help i want this skin
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner May 1, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Can you go into greater detail about what problem you're experiencing ? Currently, it just a jumbled up mess that I can't fully understand. Though, just guessing what problem you're encountering is the known bug where when you use the config tool, Rainmeter will lock up for no apparent reason. Currently, the (only?) work around is to force close Rainmeter. After that you should be able to edit the '' file in Wisp's root folder and then launch the apps individually. If you have to do it this way, each variable is explained in the "" file so it shouldn't be that hard to fix it the way you want it. Even though this is an older method of doing things, it should work just the same. 

If you need help with that hit me with a comment here, message, or email and I'll try to respond as fast as I can!

Is there a way to change the colors with RGB Values somewhere? I'm using(and loving) the green right now, because it matches my wallpaper, but should I change it, I'd like to be able to match the bars. 

If there isn't anyway to do this currently, are there any plans to do so in the future?

The coretemp installer is FULL of malware and there wasn't any boxes to uncheck. You should really not recommend people install it.
bals2oo8 Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2015
There aren't boxes to uncheck, but there is a nice "Skip" button that you can use to avoid all piggy backed software.    
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
If you go to coretemps website and click the "more downloads" button, you'll get an option for which build you want in a .zip file. I will agree that the installer has malware, but the .zip that you can download via a button right below the download button is completely clean. It's up to the user which route they take.

In future projects I'm planning on not using coretemp, but, for this skin, I'm using coretemp as the program of choice. For right now I don't have the time to update it to use another program due to medical reasons. I hope you understand.

thanks bro. 
weather not working. showing nothing. plz tell how to fix this.
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Sorry for the delay! Have you tried using the config app to set your weather location code? If you haven't, then once you do that should work properly. All of the info should be in the "Weather" section.
Another thing that's happened in the past is, for some unknown reason, some weather locations have a problem getting some info and in the worst case, any info at all. Hopefully that's not the case in this situation. Although, if that does happen, try to get a location code for the closest town or area to see if that remedies the issue.

If that doesn't fix the problem then shoot me another message.
DoctorArk Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2015
I have looked in the config but found no where to set my location. I understand I get the location code from and I tried to add in my code in the rainmeter config, but there is no where in the weather.ini to put in my location

BE WARNED. I was VERY careful during the coretemp install, making sure not to install any additional software,  but it still managed to completely lock up my system (requiring a hard reboot) disabled my virus protection/windows defender/malwarebytes, added several programs from various publishers (one with no publisher identified), changed my chrome homepage, search engine and various browser settings relating to adding guest users and such.

I cannot for the life of me work out how to get the temp units change to Celsius. Any chance you could point me in the right direction? I checked the config and weather config but I cannot see what to change. Thank you very much for taking the time! Sweet skin!
FiiZzioN Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
To change the weather's temp unit you'll have to open the config, navigate to the weather tab, and right below where you'd enter your weather code the four options are there. All that needs to be done is click them and the skin will automatically refresh so you can see if that's the option that you'd like keep.
