Re: Rainlendar 2.8 BETA build 92 3 Years, 8 Months ago  
Rainy, I've tried using the Shadow4 addon r2skin file you linked for download in your build 90 to get weather functioning again, but when I try to install it (on beta build 92, 90, etc.) it errors saying: "Unable to install the skin! The skin doesn't contain the "skin.xml" file. Are you sure this is an xml format Rainlendar skin? This us using Mac OS 10.6. I rename the file type from .zip to .r2skin in getinfo to make sure it's in the correct file type. If I unzip it, it does have the xml files in there. Can you provide assistance, Rainlendar is how I know what to wear!

Suggestion and bugs? for the new "Categories..." option:

* Show some default name for small and large icon (this isn't so difficult because in the original skin are the names)
* An option to none icon?
* "Font color" always shows "Blue" (the first element in the combo list) and not the choosed font color (same in schedule font). Besides, if you want to go back to blue color you can't, because no change is detected.
* I don't know if is possible, but, after doing the categories option, could there be an option to show ordinal number in any category instead of anniversary and birthday only? (in build 90, i clear all info in Anniversary just for show those numbers)
* Not all colors are translated (only blue, brown, cyan, green, red and yellow). These color (except blue) aren't showed in the calendar, but black, white, pink... yes. (maybe this is same problem as evanade has)
* Still don't understand. How priority works?
Example:
Anniversary: Black. Game: Light grey ----------> shows Black (i want grey)
Anniversary: Black. Holiday: Yellow -----------> shows Yellow (this is ok)

Still checking... but i think this is a major improvement. i been looking for this some time ago...

The colors are stored in categories.ini in a strange way:
[Shadow4]
[Shadow4/Issues]
Font_color=bitmap.numbers.black
[Shadow4/Anniversary]
Font_color=Verde <--------- this would be bitmap.numbers.green
[Shadow4/Customer]
Font_color=Café <--------- this would be bitmap.numbers.brown

Well... one problem more... one solution ahead... one problem less.

I come again XD

# Maybe add icons manager and apply multiple icons paths are possible.
I add icon path and feel it's inconvenient to select an icon because the icons are too many and hard to find icon I want.

Here is the view I think about:

Small/Large icons &#8595; (text menu)
[Shandow4]
[cus. icon folder]

Then click to open a plate like calendar to selcet icon

[Shandow4]
[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]
[7] [8] [9] [0] [1] [2]
[8] [7] [3] [4] [5] [6]

[n] means icon pic
and with tooltip to show the icon's file name

Is it possible?
Or you have better ideas.

#Apply RGBA text color displace RGB
Maybe someone need this function, but maybe it is not necessary.
A's value almost 255, and A doesn't include in the system's palette.

I just preffer to edit it in categories.ini manually.

AWDriver: The file is a skin addon and not a skin so you need to rename it to Shadow4.r2skin-addon

Yes, the Chromophore skin should have a default value defined for the icons since it uses one. I'll fix that.

* An option to none icon?
There is one but it's visible only when no icon is selected by default. I have to fix that.

* I don't know if is possible, but, after doing the categories option, could there be an option to show ordinal number in any category instead of anniversary and birthday only? (in build 90, i clear all info in Anniversary just for show those numbers)
This is in my backlog so it will probably be implemented eventually. You can also use the keywords if you want the event to calculate the days/months/years automatically.

* Not all colors are translated (only blue, brown, cyan, green, red and yellow). These color (except blue) aren't showed in the calendar, but black, white, pink... yes. (maybe this is same problem as evanade has)
The colors which are not translated are new strings. It's not advised to use the category editor at the moment in any other language than in English.

* Still don't understand. How priority works?
Anniversary: Black (pri=1). Game: Light grey (pri=2) ----------> shows Light grey
Anniversary: Black (pri=2). Game: Light grey (pri=1) ----------> shows Black

... or so it should work but the priority value doesn't seem to be set correctly for the custom categories. I'll check that.

Note also that recurrence affects the priority so that less frequently repeating events get a boost in their priority value.
