Hi! I'm using rainmeter for a long time now and I've learned a lot in terms of customizing skins. But I can't seem to solve a problem I'm having with all the dark gear skins!

I'm trying to change the font type to "imagine font" and it doesn't seem to work! I have that font installed on my pc, I'm sure it's a ".ttf" font, and when I try to change it in any other skin, it works, but on the dark gear ones it doesn't! The craziest thing is that if I try to change one of my dark gear skin fonts to any other font, it works! But when I try "imagine font" it just goes back to Arial!

Can anybody help me please??! It's driving me nuts!

Here's an example from "custom clock and date.ini":

By the way, great skin suite!
Thanks!

I guess I figured it out!
The thing is that the dark gear skins DO NOT ACCEPT FONTS THAT ARE NOT "OPEN TYPE"!
I found this out after struggling many times trying to change the font and refreshing over and over again.
I'm glad I finally understood what was going on, but it ends up being kind of a problem, cause finding open type fonts seems very tough.
I hope ~farisinsua can change the code so it accepts "True Type Outline" fonts too.

Thx anyways

Got it all up and working, iv been looking at the script for the "custom clock and date" and I cant figure out how to put it into 12hour format instead of 24hour format.

Excuse me illiteracy but, do you set this up?

:icongobluebro:
is there anyway you can set the really nice looking alt date and time to standard time (not military time, I'm sorry I don't know if that is the right word).
