Qlock word clock now available in Transparency! - ronie - 2011-01-09 18:33
thanx to donabi for the initial code and Amet who coded it into a script allowing easy translations,
a new eyecandy feature is now included in the svn version of T!
steps to get it to work:
- download the script here: http://mirrors.xbmc.org/addons/dharma/script.qlock/
- enable it in Skin Settings > Scripts > Enable Qlock script
- navigate to the Weather button on the Home Menu.
the clock is currently available in English, Italian, Serbian, French, German and Dutch.
if you're willing to translate it to another language, that would be very much appreciated!

To make translation a bit easier, i made a printable Grid.
Just print it out and put in the Letters of your Language.
After that it should be quite easy to fill the corret Gridnumbers into the xml.

French translation suggested in the thread of the script

example of the german clock.
it just needs to be converted to layout.xml
- amet - 2011-01-11 12:23

when and where to show the clock...
for now, i just picked the weather button,
as weather & time info seems logic combination to me somehow.

Includes.xml, remove this line:

I only ever look at weather when I am leaving the house, at which point I am probably late already

i'm working on the german layout.
should be ready this evening.
- amet - 2011-01-11 13:55
stick it on a mail to me and I'll get it in

the layout is nearly finished.
but "those germans" have one problem.
at 01:00 we say "es ist ein uhr"
at every other minute after 01:00, the "ein" goes "eins".
another way of time-spelling would be "es ist eins" at 01:00.
so i need a way to make the 01:00 with a different text.
without the last "uhr" (which is "’o clock" in english) or without the "s", which i need for all other settings after 01:00.

I'll create a special case for "those Germans" in a script
please let me know which solution you prefer
EDIT: here is 0.0.6 , try it and let me know if "one o'clock" is fine
Thanks for the layout

"es ist ein uhr" would be the most common, i think.
