UPDATE: I have fixed bugs with the Minecraft, Deus Ex, and League of Legends Banners. Please download again!

UPDATE 2: ...and a bug with the JC2 banner. Fuck me. lol

I'm a guy who loves to display my games and so forth, but with the advent of digital gaming and distribution, I don't have boxes laying around that I can display. For some time I've been looking for something that allows me to display my games on my desktop in a way reminiscent of boxes on a shelf... or say, like the DDR interface, but never found anything satisfactory. So, I improvised and did it myself.

GameBanners is a collection of simple Rainmeter buttons created in Rainpad. The banners themselves are a combination of resources found around the internet put together in Photoshop.


This was created for personal use, so I don't intend to supply a lot of support. Nonetheness, if you need any help feel free to ask here and I'll see what I can do.

Steam games in this list are set up as Steam links. Non-steam games like Guild Wars 2 link to their respective folder paths. If you would like to link to a non-Steam game through Steam, follow these instructions:

1. In your steam library, right click the game and click "Create Desktop Shortcut."
2. On the desktop, find the shortcut. Right click it and select "Properties."
3. Under "URL," copy the entire line starting with "steam://" and ending in a series of numbers, which is the game's ID.
4. Right click the GameBanner you wish to change, and find the following line:
LeftMouseUpAction = !Execute ["URL HERE"]
5. Replace the "URL HERE" text with the URL you copied from the game shortcut's properties window between the quotes. Save, and exit Notepad.
6. Right click the Rainmeter skin, and click "Refresh skin."
7. You're done! You're also free to delete the desktop shortcut you created, if you'd like.

If you would like to create your own banners using this style, you may use the PSD file here: [link]

Well, on the 4th of July this year I submitted a Christmas themed wallpaper... so now, two days after Christmas, I am submitting an Independence Day wallpaper, yes I know I am all backwards!

Anyway... this wallpaper is of Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence.

I made this out of boredom. So, yeah, my scanner is still shot to shit, and I can't upload any of my real drawings and artwork.
Partly inspired by David McChulloh's book and the HBO miniseries.

So, here is John Adams, second Presient of the United States and the voice of the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson was his best friend.
One of my favorite presidents.

Partly inspired by ~RafkinsWarning picture of Jefferson.

This theme replaces the default WinRAR icons with new Windows 7 styled ones. It also blends in perfectly with Vista as there are virtually no differences between the icons.

A readme is included for installing the exe icons.

These icons are 32x32 in size. If you would like larger ones visit my other deviation: [link]

Has been updated to no longer include the exes, as these were being reported as viruses.

Enjoy :)

Includes the standard blue version and the black XP mod by nevezen. - [link]
Well, the panelbuttons are the same in the blue and black one here. Smooth as they were supposed to be. :p

Metacity themes and start-here.png icons included.

Known issue: When you select the menu with the start-here.png icon you will see the shadows without alpha-transparency. I forgot to add that to the icons. :p

Wallpaper: Small mod of "One a day 2" by colossus72 - [link]

Another windows wallpaper, itīs one in mediacenter style for xp or may be for vista? The zip file contains three styles. With logo, without and a minimalistic one without aurora touch :-)
Resolutions:
1280x1024
1440x900
1680x1050
1920x1200
1920x1440
The 1024x768 resolution is not there, cause 1920x1440 has the same aspect ratio :-)

My second Visual style.

1.1 Release includes 3 schemes.
Dark 1 is with glossy scrollbars and caption frames.
Dark 2 is just flat without any glossy things.
slwaal is SlanXP taskbar and WaalVS windows.

Useless fact: "Waal" can be translated to "Become", it became something. :p It's an old word from an old Swedish dialect.

This theme is made to be used as a single taskbar line, at the top or the bottom. It doesn't look good with big taskbar icons.

---

Changelog.

1.1 - New scheme with a SlanXP taskbar.
1.0 - Small fixes and a new color scheme.
0.8 - Custom toolbars textcolor fixed.
0.7 - Selected taskbandbutton text color is now white.
0.6 - Just changed the standard font to Tahoma.
