* all buttons, graphics and the new moon and weather icons were created by me. If you want to use the icons look here:

when in your city page, copy the 8 digit code (for example - USNY0996) from the URL in the address bar.
Click the button on the upper right corner of the skin to open the panel and click the Settings button -
select 'Location' and Paste the code over the old one - click Set.
• To change the language click the upper right button. click the Settings button on the panel. in the Settings
box scroll down to Language, select it, type your language (for example Italian) and click Set.
• the 9 day forecast + 3 horizontal versions can be selected via the new panel (the numbers on the panels).
• Click the ? button on the panel to read further instructions.
• Since it seems people are somehow keep missing this part i will repeat it: You need Rainmeter v2.1 or higher for this skin to work properly!
