Update: Arcs 1.2 (14 August 2011)

Just a small update. I've cleaned up the skin code, so it's a few hundred lines shorter. I also made it much easier to edit the variables for colors, drive letters and network speeds.

I also updated the progress bar to use the new NowPlaying plugin, instead of the old iTunes plugin. See here for a list of supported players and corresponding settings.

Update: RMSkin (20 November 10)

I've coverted the package to the ".rmskin" format, which makes it quick and easy to install new skins in the latest version of Rainmeter.

Update: Dark Arcs (20 August 09)

After many requests, it's my pleasure to announce the following additions to Arcs:

- A "Dark" variant, with inverted colors for use on brighter screens.
- The colors in the actual code are now labeled, so they'll be easier for others to edit.
- The Song Progress bar has been re-added to the Rainmeter version, using iTunes.
- Not really an update to Arcs, per se, but the new Rainmeter 1.0 features much-improved anti-aliasing, so those jagged inner edges you used to see in 0.14 are gone. The preview screenshot has been updated accordingly (it's been bothering me for ages).

Originally inspired by tok2's Circle. Thanks almost entirely to the efforts of onewithnopaper, "Arcs" has been translated from my original Samurize config into Rainmeter. As I predicted, it's a little rough around the edges - no one's fault, just an inevitable result of Rainmeter's inferior rendering. But it's completely functional.

Onewithnopaper really deserves the credit for this one. I was planning to spend this afternoon on the project; you can imagine my surprise when this showed up in an email.

Arcs will also be included as a bonus feature in the upcoming update to Enigma.

The original Samurize configs are included in this package.

how to change the size?
HeroForge Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014
I really like this idea, having a lot of information compressed into a set of arcs and circles.

I have a question, something specific to my set-up (though I'm sure others have something like this): My desktop is currently set to rotate through about a dozen different backgrounds, about once every 20 minutes. All of my backgrounds have a very prominent circle in or near the center, but they're not all in the same location.

Is it possible to rig this skin so that it moves to the center of the background's circle? Perhaps it could be given a list of the files in use, and assign an X/Y location based on whichever image is active.

Doable? Or am I dreaming?
