Only thing I can say is dont remove anything! It will be a big project to fix if you were to remove things.

Is it possible to stop it from popping up whenever a song changes?

Look for this part of the code on line 2923:

[MeasurePlayer]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=NowPlaying.dll
PlayerName=#Player#
PlayerType=TITLE
DisableLeadingZero=1
Substitute="":"N\A"
TrackChangeAction=[!ShowMeterGroup Player][!Zpos 2][!EnableMeasure MeasureDeactivate2]

the part you have to edit is the "TrackChangeAction".

You can either delete the "trackchangeaction" or just add a ; in front of it to comment it out. Make sure you save after editing and refresh the skin.

Thanks! It was really annoying when I was playing minecraft and it kept popping up and getting stuck open when skipping many songs fast.

Right click and go to edit skin, And on line 85ish you will see

[MeasureTime]
Measure=Time
Format=%I:%M:%S %p %A

Change %I to %H and delete %p.

No worries, I managed to change it! :) Just changed "%I" to "%H" and removed "%p"!

What version of Windows and what version of Rainmeter are you using? It is recommended you use the newest Rainmeter found here [link] and if your using Windows XP, that could be a problem. I have yet to test this in XP to see if it works or not, But I dont see why it wouldnt.
