additional info

with only this skin loaded rainmeter uses ~1.5% cpu + ~1.5% gpu in the background on a ryzen 5 2600X + gtx 1660ti

the weather tile is implemented using jsmorely's weather.com[2] api parser. in case the weather breaks you can patch the @Resources/WeatherCOMJson/Measures.inc file with the latest WeatherComJSONMeasures.inc from jsmorely. if you need to patch the entirety of Variables.inc too, make sure you multiply UpdateRate by 25, eg. `UpdateRate = (3600 * 25)`. you need to do this since tiles.ini updates at 40ms but the default value expects an update of 1000ms

the cover art tile, title + artist on the visualizer tile, and media control tile all rely on WebNowPlaying[3] to function, please make sure you have the web companion installed for those functions to work, or the webnowplaying extension enabled in spicetify[4]

the hover animations as well some audio tile logic borrow elements from eldog[5] skins

todo

stuff to look forward to in future versions
more flexible customizability
fix visualizer bars on different tile sizes
separate inner/outer padding
support other music players then wnp
allow you to only monitor one or two drives
