Miku Clock gadget

April 26th, 2008 | by OsoMarron |

Miku Clock! My first attempt to build a Vista Sidebar Gadget. It’s a flash downloaded from a japanese site Emka linked, slammed into a gadget.

I’m crediting it as “by Sakaki” since it’s the only name I can recognize on that site XD If such credit is wrong, let me know :P

    Excuse me but, please, how did you do for add it in the Vista’s Sidebar ? =S

  • http://osomarron.com OsoMarron

    The download is for a gadget file. If, for some reason, you downloaded a zip file, rename the .zip for .gadget and double click it.

  • Wairf

    Err… Thank you very mutch, now I can add it on my sidebar but I have got another problem . (Sorry >.<)

    When I add the gadget, I have just a black image on the sidebar. Can you help me please ? =/

    I’ve heard this is a problem with Windows Vista 64 bits, or rather, a problem with Adobe Flash not having support for 64 bits yet.

    Until Adobe puts their act together, you can run the 32 bit version of Sidebar instead, by closing your sidebar, going to “Programs (x86)/Windows Sidebar/” and running Sidebar.exe.

  • Wairf

    Yay, It run ! Thank you very mutch for your help ! =D

  • MikuFan

    Thanks a lot for this, I was going to do it myself until I stumbled upon this. A+++++ Excellent Work

    Will there by any chance this app can work together with other app such as rainmeter so XP user can use it? T.T

  • http://osomarron.com OsoMarron

    Technically speaking, anything that admits embedding flash or html can embed the miku clock. I’m not familiar with the rainmeter app, though.

  • evgheni

  • http://animexgal.blogspot.com Hiie!

    hi guys, i have a problem here. I download the miku clock from other website, not here. it can work when i open it. but the only thing is, how am i going to put the miku clock into my blog? i dunno which gadget should i put…please help me! =[

    Just embed it as you would any flash object. WordPress for instance, lets you add a text widget, where you can add the HTML code for embedding a flash object.

  • Sai

    I need help! Onegai! :”<

    I've just embedded this widget to my tumblr account My Tumblr but it’s taking up too much space(the white one). I wonder if I can take that off? Or just cut some parts of it to fit the Navbar? But I noticed that it’s part of the widget. Aww!

    What can I do? :O
    Tasukete! :3

    late, but what the heck… merry christmas

    <table><tr><td style=”overflow:hidden; height:100px; background-color:black;”>
    <object type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” data=”mikuclock.swf” width=”170″ height=”170″ style=”margin-top:-25px;”>
    <param name=”wmode” value=”opaque” />
    </object>
    </td></tr></table>

    adjust the widths and heights as needed.
