Re:Hourly Chime 2 Years, 3 Months ago  
I am baffled, disappointed, bewildered, and a few other choice words...
You have tried SO hard to make this work for me and it STILL doesn't!

I have followed your excellent detailed instructions to the letter, and there seems to be no reason why it wouldn't work, so I'm stumped at this point!

Another thing that puzzles me: When following your instructions and I click the Chime subitem and then the black arrow pointing to the right, the chime gets listed under "Windows" in the Active Skins box, not under "Alarm". Could this be the problem?

Sorry, I know you want this to work just as much as I do!

Although it isn't visible is a window, so it's ok to get listed in "Windows" and not in "Alarm".
Sorry, I have no more tricks in my hat. This should have been work.

Ahh, OK.
I'm stumped as well. [scratching head]

Oh well, you gave it your best shot (several shots!) and I'll always be grateful!

Thanks again!!

The skin seems to be working fine so one possibility why you cannot get it to work is that if you have installed any 3rd party codec packs to your computer they can break the wav file playback in Rainlendar. There is a workaround for the issue in the beta version or alternately you can try to use some other audio format than .wav (try using e.g. some mp3 file).

Good morning!

Thanks for the continuing advice, and VERY glad to hear that it's working for you!
That HAS to mean there's a playback problem on my end somewhere as you suggested.

I will try an MP3 file instead of a WAV to see if that makes a difference, ASAP!

(In case it matters, I've been using "Winamp" to play all my WAVs and MP3s for years. I've never had any trouble until this Hourly Chime adventure!)

Hi Rainy!

I didn't realize that was you in the last reply, thanks for trying to help!
(Could you please give Jorge a raise? He's really tried hard to help me!)

Unfortunately, I still can't play the hourly chime.
I've tried several different WAVs and also MP3s as you suggested.
I also changed from Winamp to Windows Media Player and that didn't help either.

I noticed that you mentioned a beta version with a "workaround" for this issue, but I feel like I'm way over my head. What would I have to do in order to try it?

(Would I lose all my events and stuff or would I install the new over the old or...?)
