This is pure greatness (as usual)..
One suggestion/wish that I think would be awesome. Is there anyway to add a feature that would automatically alternate between each function? There is so much in this package I like, I hate to leave it on one section too long!!

Superb, as usual and thanks for sharing your talents! Innovative idea! Get tired of docks and seperate items for all you've included in this. Really great idea! I agree with others a media player addition tops my list. An additional button to start/hide sysmetrix would be nice too but, you don't want too much (imho) or you end up with a dock. Anywho, superb effort and idea! Can't wait for a light/dark WB to match......

Wow!! I don't even use DesktopX but I loaded it up just see this and this is one of the best objects I have seen. Very nice graphics, the animation is really cool and it's a very usefull little tool. Any chace of doing this as a widget? Thanks, you are obviously very talented

Tiggz,

Yeah, the clean look is better, figured I'd mention it just for the heck of it

This object now occupies a prominent spot on my desktop

Tiggz hands Phoon a Kleenex LOL
cheers TheDude20165
I look forward to seeing it Marcelo
GCube - thanks, good suggestion, I'd had the same thought myself
Thankyou Maggot - yeah, there has to be a compromise between economy and utility. I want to add the media functions but I think that program launching should be left out of the mix
Thanks Wet Monkey, I might look into converting this into a widget for those that don't want to run dx.
Aleatoric, I've been considering ways to implement the remote hiding deal, maybe a button on the remote to hide and a double click on the main object to reveal...I will experiment with the idea
Cheers EnsRegis
Thankyou danilloOc
Appreciate the comment APB, thanks
Angrygrasshopper - yeah, I am guessing that you have an older version of dx as I have used some recently added object alignment options which will probably also effect your objects ability to change colours. If you have the registereed version of dx then you need to check the "show pre-release versions" option in Stardock central and download the latest beta of dx. I used version 2.19f[b].002 to create this, although there is an even newer version available (which I'm told is the most stable build to date).
If you havent't got the registered version of dx then I guess your only option is to go through the list of objects in the object navigator and manually adjust their positions - although this will not address some script issues which are version dependant.

You know, the other thing the KTEK series lacks is a WB skin. Are you planning one?

Right now I'm using iSkin (http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?library=1&SkinID=2919), which is OK I might switch to BP-XP (http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?library=1&SkinID=3386) if I use the green skins. But it'd be really cool to have a KTEK WB skin.

Outstanding object..well done as everyone else is saying. One suggestion I would like which is very useful is make it a talking clock so it can tell you the time while you are working on other projects. Maybe like the RG111 clock object? Anyway, great work!!

Herman,
you are absolutely right with this suggestion. I agree with you.

This is awesome! Your entries are consistently cutting edge. Any chance you could add the alpha blending background features of your other killer objects ?

I figured out a way to do it. Load RG111 dxpack and then delete all objects except the +/- and speaker object. Then, import K-Display and save as new dxtheme. Start with the basic dxtheme you want to add these objects to and go from there. I do have one problem with K-Display, I cannot get it to keep my zip code. It works for a little bit and then tells me I have an invalid zip code. I re-enter it and it again works for a while.

Now, maybe I'm just imagining this but in Weather view is the arrow supposed to point in the direction the wind is currently blowing? Currently my display says E 5 mph, but the arrow is pointing dead South.. I noticed yesterday that when the wind was SSE, the arrow was pointing SSW. Any ideas? Fantastic skin BTW, I think it's great!

4letterword - thanks
EnsRegis - it's coming m8, I promise
Herman - does the object forget your location immediately after you save the theme? There is a bit of a bug with dx that causes this slightly irritating behaviour. I never save my theme as a theme, so I avoid this foible, I save my objects out individually. Sorry about that, but it's kind of beyond my control
f0r3 - yeah the arrow points in the direction the wind is blowing, or at least it does on my one. If the text says E then the arrow should be pointing towards the west. If it reads SSE, it should be pointing to NNW. I just checked the script and there really shouldnt be any way for a wind defined as "E" to make the arrow point south. A reading of "E" corresponds to an object rotation of 90 degrees (as defined in the script) which should cause the arrow to point to the west

Tiggz: Thanks. Right now I'm using , which is an absolutely beautiful skin. I'm looking forward to the new one.

Hmmm, I'll have to keep my eye on it then.. At the moment the wind is calm so I'll have to wait till there's some wind to actually talk about.. Regardless it's an awesome object!!

Tiggz: I think you are right. Although it seems intermittent, I think it happens sometime after I make a save. Then I re-enter the zipcode and it works fine. Thanks and excellent work!
