In order to get Wifi to work after upgrading to Windows 10, I had to patch this meter again. In the Wi-fi.ini file change the [SSID] measure to the following:

[SSID]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=WiFiStatus
WiFiInfoType=SSID
WiFiIntfID=#WIFI_INTERFACE#
IfCondition=(SSIDQuality = 0)
IfTrueAction=[!HideMeterGroup "SSIDDetails"][!HideMeterGroup "SSIDGraph"][!SetOption SSIDConnectivityIcon ImageTint "#COLOUR12#"][!SetOption SSIDString Text "[not connected]"][!UpdateMeter SSIDConnectivityIcon]]
IfFalseAction=[!ShowMeterGroup "SSIDDetails"][!ShowMeterGroup "SSIDGraph"][!SetOption SSIDConnectivityIcon ImageTint "#COLOUR9#"][!SetOption SSIDString Text "%1"][!UpdateMeter SSIDConnectivityIcon]
UpdateDivider=5

Any guess as to why my Top Process wouldn't be displayed?

As a ~6 year ForceX User, THANK YOU!

Sleek skin.
Personal favorite.

Issue that I am having:
     With GPU module
          Error: Plugin: Unable to load "MSIAfterburner.dll" (error 126)

Installed:
    Rainmeter Version 3.3
     ForceXtended v4.0.0
     MSIAfterburner.dll (x64)
     Windows 8.1 Pro
     Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M 8GB

Pasted all the refactored text mentioned here in the GPU.ini.
Not sure how to troubleshoot this issue.
Would really appreciate some help.
Thanks many in advance.

Great job on this skin! Up until now I have been using the original ForceX Skin (I liked the styling of the ForceXtended skin better but preferred the functionality of the original). The changes you have made in recent times have truly swayed me over.
My only gripe is something that has come from the original skin. The CPU Frequency doesn't rise above 4001MHz hindering my ability to see if my overclock is functioning correctly.
Any way of fixing this would be greatly appreciated.
Once again thankyou for making this epic skin!

I'll take a look at the CPU frequency issue; should be easily fixable! :)

Hey man, First off, excellent excellent work! I absolutely love this, but I do have 2 problems, if you could help me with, that would be awesome.

- My GPU, I have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 from Gigabyte, however, this is showing a GeForce GTX 980 Strix, I copy and pasted into the GPU.ini what was suggested below, and it didn't change over, nor is it showing my usage percentage, Temp, or Memory usage, any way to fix that?

-Secondly, it's not showing my CPU Temperture at all, is there any way to fix that as well?

Again, this is an awesome skin, and I love it, any help with my two issues would be absolutely awesome, if not, so be it, I still love the skin set.

Keep up the good work! And hope to see more of your great work!

Thanks, I really appreciate the feedback.

  1) The GPU name is set manually using the GPU_NAME option in Config.inc.  I find it more helpful setting manually rather than pulling out the long names some cards give.  The other GPU values require the following to be installed:

  - MSI Afterburner: gaming.msi.com/features/afterb…
  - M
SIAfterburner Rainmeter Plugin: forums.guru3d.com/showthread.p…

  2) The CPU temp requires the following to be installed:

  - SpeedFan: www.almico.com/speedfan.php

Hope that helps! :)

I managed to fix the GPU monitor section. Replace the contents of GPU.ini with this: pastebin.com/X28FmhzN

The only thing I havent been able to figure out is how to make Foobar2000 work with the media player section. Any ideas?

Edit: Fixed that as well. It seems that MediaPlayer.ini doesn't actually use the setting from config.inc. Manually setting the [Title] measure's PlayerName to your media player in mediaplayer.ini should fix it.

The GPU monitor was broken entirely for me. I had to manually rename all the labels to get it to work at all, but now it's fine with my changed config!

Hey, I added 8 core support for this skin along with some tweaks suggested by Psieonic:


* Quad, Hex and Oct CPU Core support (ONLY 8 CORE SUPPORT AT THIS TIME)
Multi-core support should be a given. If you really want to impress people, you could even write some Lua script to automatically display a bar for each core.

* CPU Clock Speed update rate
Change to UpdateDivider=1 under [CPU1ClockRateString]. With the prevalency of CPUs with dynamic clock rate adjustment to improve thermal output, clock rates change almost constantly.

* Dynamic scaling on the Network line graph
Just remove MaxValue=#SpeedD# from TCPin and TCPOut. Makes more sense than asking everyone to reconfigure it manually. Especially if you're on a LAN with other machines.

I hope that this is okay with mallchin

(original work by ForceX System Monitor by ForceX34. & this skin by Mallchin)

PS: I take no responsibility if this breaks anything but it seems to be working fine for me.

Fine by me!

I'll be pushing a new update in the coming weeks and will incorporate these suggestions (some already in GitHub version).

I last played with Lua on the PSP (Lua FileManager) but see what I can rustle up!

I've worked these back into this skin :)

  * Now supports 1, 2, 4, 6 or 8 cores automatically.
  * Now refreshing CPU Clock Frequency.
  * Now dynamically scaling network graphs.

I can't seem to open this one. Whenever I click on any item to make it show up, I get a message saying:

The skin "skin file name" requires Rainmeter 100.0 or higher. Download the latest version from rainmeter.net.

Nevermind, was a problem on my end. CPU name was needlessly wrong. Tweaked the registry to get rid of the (TM) and the (R) and the needless spaces and it looks MUCH better. :D

Skin now scales dynamically; altering the skin width in the stylesheet should fix this easily.

very nice
i thought a GPU monitor was a missing essential so i wrote one being based on the processor monitor and looking roughly the same. It uses MSI afterburner plugin for monitoring. Some parts in the code are messy named and in general its very easy job, but i thought i'd post it cause i'm sure many people are skipping this awesome skin just because theres no GPU monitor.
