"Clockwork Orange" Clock by TreeFiddyHI7FLMgF5W0 "Clockwork Orange" Clock by TreeFiddyHI7FLMgF5W0
Rainmeter skin for use with the animated wallpaper.

Just a simple analog clock.

Unzip the file and copy to your rainmeter skins folder.
Move the clock over the orange gear wheel.

Sit back and enjoy.

If you're looking for the whole animated-gears-and-clock-rainmeter-skin, it didn't work. Rainmeter doesn't seem to want to update faster than once every second, which means that the movement of the gears can't be produced effectively.

EDIT: The config file is called "HUD arcs". This is because I edited that file to make this. I tried changing the name to "clock" but, when I did, rainmeter wouldn't load the skin.

The orange and the hands and numbers are the only parts in this clock.
The gears are on an animated GIF which you can set as the background (in XP). You can find the animated GIF somewhere else in my stuff.

You can make Rainmeter update as fast as once every millisecond (theoretically) by adding Update=1 in the [Rainmeter] section of the skin. The default (if you don't specify anything) is Update=1000.

i think this is the coolest rainmeter clock i've ever seen and it hink this is totally underated. only if vista would support the animated wallpaper. but nonetheless it looks wonderful on my xp. :D love it!

One thing I noticed is that you need to completely exit Rainmeter before renaming any .ini files or Rainmeter gets very confused...

I did that. I also renamed it and did the "Refresh All". The last time I tried, rainmeter wasn't even running. But it works the way it is, so I'm not too bothered.
Thanks, though.
