Hi there, first of all: Great skin, and it works great! It's very simple; yet effective!
I would like to make a little change though.

Is it possible to reverse the color? It's currently white, with a dark(er) shade of shadow. Is it possible to make the text black, and put a white-ish shadow?
I already managed to change the color and font by putting "Colour=0, 0, 0, 255" and "font=Ubuntu" as two lines under [Variables}, but I can't seem to get the shadow back...

And is there also a (simple) way to make the button black instead of white?

I'm awaiting your response! :D

Is there a way to make the song details centered above the controller? I've been tinkering with it for a bit, but the text get cut off on the left side.

Right on the skin and select "Edit Skin" go to the line that starts;

Substitute="Spotify - ":"","1."

Go all the way to the end of that line and delete;

"Paused"

Problem solved.

Hi! Have you updated this to the newest Spotify yet? I noticed a couple people asking already, but still. :)

looks great, this is exactly what I was looking for. Is this still getting updated though? Since I read that this version isn't up to date yet with the newest spotify version.

Hey.

So I'm totally new to Rainmeter, and I really don't know my way around it. 
I love this player, and I think it's very useful, but there's one thing I want to do with it but can't figure out how...
I'm trying to get the overlay to show on top of my games (.exe's); I've been playing around with AlwaysOnTop and the Y values but I can't figure out how to make it show through.

Is this possible? If so, can you help me?

Been using this player for the longest time, close to, maybe over, 2-3 years now, and it's never stopped working. Recently, though, it hasn't working at all. The skin itself is there, but it just doesn't work. Any suggestions as to how to make it work?

I appreciate that you've been using my skin for so long! It's a shame that it has stopped working. Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any standard issues with this skin. Does the skin display some of the info or no info at all? Do the controls work?

:iconepicxgodz:
EpiCxGoDz Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2014
The skin works, as it loads up and displays the text. But the controls do not pop up, nor the track name. Not sure what's going on.

Are you using the latest rainmeter version? Including the latest NowPlaying.dll plugin? Did you try restarting Spotify / Rainmeter / Your PC ? I'm afraid there's nothing more I can try to help you from this distance.. Good luck!

Is there a way to make it so the buttons aren't white or make it so there's a shadow in the back? Can't see them with a white background

:iconmaxvanijsselmuiden:
maxvanijsselmuiden Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, you could edit the images so that they have a shadow. Here www.wikihow.com/Add-a-Drop-Sha… is a tutorial on how to add shadows using Photoshop. You can also use other (free) software, like GIMP.

Suggestion: Can you center the info above the buttons? Or can be editable that? Many thanks.

:iconmaxvanijsselmuiden:
maxvanijsselmuiden Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, you can. Look for the correct X value that would be the center, according to you. Then change the values of StringAlign to Center, as follows: 

[CenteredText]
Meter=String
StringAlign=Center
X=100

That should work. Good luck!

Yes, add the amount of space you want to add between the items in the consecutive Y-values of the meters.

Heya, thanks for developing the addon, it's exactly the kind of minimalistic thing I was looking for to flesh out my small HUD. Small thing: I'm having this problem when I try to centre the text and move the buttons so that they are also centred: i.imgur.com/cth2QV6.jpg

I have tried increasing, decreasing, and removing width and height values in the Variables.inc file. I managed to work around it by adding X=150 but I'm still curious if you know what causes this to happen in the first place.

Thanks!

P.S.: Would there also be any way to scroll the text when it's too long?

:iconmaxvanijsselmuiden:
maxvanijsselmuiden Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I think it's the width of the skin, which I have set to a fixed variable, what causes this. Glad you worked it out, though. Yes, making the text scroll is possible, but it would require a fairly difficult code. Check out this skin: eclectic-tech.deviantart.com/a… for an example of scrolling text.

Great plugin.

Instead of separate Play/Pause buttons that do exactly the same thing, i use this button: i.imgur.com/1ebFEtX.png
