P4 HUD Extended by iron2000 P4 HUD Extended by iron2000
Based off the original Persona 4 HUD Rainmeter Skin [link] by Th3Laugh1ngMan with edited artwork by takua108 [link].

Whats added on/changed in the 'Extended' version:
- added a settings dialog for easy configuration
- added a weather popup for more detailed weather info
- new options like temperature unit and 12-24hr clock
- separated design and logic to enable styling and localization
- also reworked most of the code, shorter and hopefully more optimized

This main config contains 6 styles - English, EngAlt, Japanese, Chinese, German and Turkish.
For more on the style concept, try the Style Pack!
:pointr: P4HUDEX Style Pack

Game for another piece of Persona 4 for your desktop?
Check out P4 Launcher!

Execute the rmskin file to install.

If you are using a portable Rainmeter installation, you can use SkinInstaller.exe to install the rmskin file.
SkinInstaller.exe should be at "[PortableInstallDirectory]Rainmeter".

More on adding Rainmeter skins here [link]

- The text field in the settings dialog have tooltips showing instructions
- The current weather condition for the weather popup may not localize (for Japanese and Chinese) for certain conditions, do make a post if you see it happen
- Tooltips are not fully translated for Japanese and Chinese
- The settings reset when the config is updated
- Typing in nonexistent style name in settings crashes Rainmeter, reopen Rainmeter and type in existing style name to remedy
- Weather icon will take 5 seconds to appear on first load or forced refresh, this is mainly to accomodate the sunset/sunrise data processing

You still around, Iron? How do I go about changing the music player used?
iron2000 Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2014  Hobbyist
Under settings page 1 theres 7 groups of 2 text boxes corresponding to the 7 items in the launcher.

Pick one group and enter the full path of your music player in the bottom text box of the 2.
The top text box is the title of the item.

This is great!  Thanks a lot.

Awesome stuff!
Just got one question. How do you change the location of weather?
iron2000 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2014  Hobbyist
You can change it via the WOEID setting.

More about it here:…

Sorry for the late reply :P

even though this is in my rainmeter skins folder (the one that is created when you install rainmeter) it doesn't show up when selecting what skins to load no matter how many times I reload, reinstall, or refresh. I have looked in the folder and everything is there, I even tried without installing the p3 skin pack and it still doesn't work.
iron2000 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2013  Hobbyist
Sorry but I'm not sure what could have cause it.

I thought the installer will auto-apply the skin after install?
Thats what happened when I tested the rmskin file.

Did you uncheck anything in the installer?
Are you using the latest Rainmeter version?
kingpook Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I did not uncheck anything and I have the latest version
iron2000 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013  Hobbyist
How did you install the skin?
kingpook Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I just clicked on the download archive and it asked me which parts I wanted and I didnt uncheck anything. It never showed up under my rainmeter addable plugins even though it was in my skins folder
iron2000 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Hobbyist
I just downloaded the file from this page and tried installing.
It automatically applies the skin for me.

Does the install dialog you see look like this, theres the "Apply included layout" check option:
kingpook Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I just redownloaded it and it worked, I cant get the P3 mix or… to work on it though, the styles folder doesn't show up in rainmeter
iron2000 Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2013  Hobbyist
You need to change styles via the settings dialog.
Glad you got it working :)
takua108 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey man! Just got an e-mail from someone who saw my thread on Giant Bomb and wanted to know why the weather didn't update. I told him it's because he's using an old version and you made the newest, best-working version... then I checked and saw that the weather isn't working even on your version.

Looks like Yahoo! changed or removed a bunch of APIs, and it'll take some figuring to get it to work again. I'll be happy to help if you'd like, once I get some free time :D
iron2000 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2013  Hobbyist
I tried it on 2 PCs and both updated the weather fine.
I changed to a few locations and the weather details changed accordingly.

So the weather is working fine on the 2 PCs I tested.

By the way in my last update I changed the location to read from WOEID instead of location name.
It won't work if you type in your country or city name.
TheFreelancer2501 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013
I didn't even know about Rainmeter.  Turned out to be easier to use than I thought and now I have a cool way to know the weather.  Thanks very much for this.
Netdeviant Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2013
I'm a bit afraid to just blindly mess around with code, so I was wondering if you could point me towards what to change if I want to make this sit on the upper left (obviously with a left alignment, a.k.a. mirroring the current setup) instead of the upper right?
iron2000 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2013  Hobbyist
There will be a lot to change if you want that to happen and it would break the other skin packs.
I'll see what I can do when i have time.
I-Kaizoku-I Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
thanks so much been looking for something like this for a while you rock!
nightsovercats Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013
Yahoo Weather no longer returns values since the API geocode URL doesn't work anymore. Could you update this to perhaps accommodate Weather Underground?
iron2000 Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013  Hobbyist
I actually moved from Weather Underground as its not free an require sign up.
Even the free plan is limited to 500 calls per day, its like only the lucky 500 per day get to know the weather.

Anyway I'm using my Minimet RM theme which uses Yahoo Weather and it still tells the weather.
nightsovercats Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013
That's strange, is it something on my end then? Looking through the code, [link] doesn't work when you try to access it. A simple Google search turned up this:

iron2000 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013  Hobbyist
Ok, I'm getting the problem when I change the location.
Looks like Yahoo Weather has turned to the dark side.
Hard to find free weather api now, everybody is limiting the number of calls per day.

Maybe I'll change it to require the user to manually go to Yahoo Weather to get the WOEID.
Or I'll look for other API to work with.

Thanks for the report, I'll work on it soon.

I'd like to know as well
Phantom-Brave Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012
Just confused as to how to install the Persona 4 TV and the other set that goes with this.
They have no rnskn? files in the folder. Do I just drag them into the skin folder in the rainmeter folder in C drive?
iron2000 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Hobbyist
All my Rainmeter DA submitions are in rmskin format.
What you download should be an rmskin file.
Just install that as in the instructions in the description.

Your P4 HUD Extended is really great. I add 2 new language in your P4 HUD Extended, if you don't mind. If you want the new added languages, just ask.

Thank you, will try this soon.
KiraV Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2012
This is beautiful! But... the weather isn't working for me. I type "London, United Kingdom" and press enter, but nothing happens. The weather icon still remains completely black, even after a while. :'(
KiraV Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2012
Nevermind, now it works. XD
Nintegajjp Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2011
I'm sorry...But this isn't working.

Most of the files are empty and nothing is loading what-so-ever.

I hope you could get back to me and help.

I love this so much. I saw the original version and was sad that it wasn't 100% but then I came across this. @_@
nadieshkatears Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2011
This is really awesome!
I just have a problem with the weather condition. I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and I can't manage to get it right, could you tell me what I have to change?
iron2000 Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2011  Hobbyist
Ok, open the settings dialog then click on the text box under 'Weather Location?', type 'Buenos Aires, Argentina' then press Enter.

That did it for me.
nadieshkatears Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2011
It eventually worked, I took some time till it actualized
thanks a lot

Krebstar9300 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011
Hey, I have a request, though I understand if it's not feasible. Would it be possible to make an editable menu selection list, like what I have in the top left of my screen here (it's from the WP7 theme): [link] but in the font style of the P4 menu (basically what you already have now): [link] ? I'm asking because, while I love this theme, it just feels a little bit lacking only having the one corner HUD, and I thought I would try and reproduce a wallpaper based off of the menu selection screen (the colored bars), and having a custom Rainmeter skin with that font would be awesome for a list to place on top of it.
iron2000 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011  Hobbyist
Can't promise anything but the idea is interesting.
I think I might experiment around.
Krebstar9300 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011
Just so y'know, I actually "finished" it now: [link] In case you're interested.
iron2000 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011  Hobbyist
It looks great!
I might use it in the 'P4 Launcher' that I'm formulating in my head :P
Krebstar9300 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011
Cool. I'm currently trying to find some decent screenshots so that I can actually get the right colors for the menu.

One other question, though. Do you know if it's possible to use the Weather Underground API to tell the skin when it's night vs. day? When I went to the site they seem to have a calculated sunrise/sunset, so it would be neat if that could be the setting, rather than just always 7pm-6am. Though I'm not sure if the API actually allows for that. I just started getting into Rainmeter, myself.
iron2000 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011  Hobbyist
I'll probably get it to use the Weather Underground sunrise/sunset information in the next update.
watarusan Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2011
i like this rain's skin a lot (persona 4 FTW); just a minor issue imho: at the night the sun icon doesn't work too much :(
anyway great job!
iron2000 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2011  Hobbyist
I figured out a way to get night icons working.
The update will bring yet another change to the Styles format.
