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]
Rename .conkyrc_archlinux or .conkyrc_ubuntu to .conkyrc depending on your distro,and put all files into user folder.You have to download Digital-7 and Ubuntu fonts.Also you have to edit .lua.lua file acording to your network speed,here is settled for 65/33 KBp/s.
Overall it's functionality and performance is great
and all errors seem to be graphical(missing/not showing 'minor css tweaks'),
except for one(1) xul error (can someone maybe explain this?)
its seems to be fully functional.
Also I gave the toolbars a sleeker look, ...do we like?
please comment (here or elsewhere [link])
and let me know what you think.
Please report any 'bugs' and incompatible extension(s)
Seems there will be no more changes to the themes as far as 2.0 is concerned
so hopefully I can lock this down soon.
Po dłuuugiej przerwie, screen z Devil May Cry 4^^ Nie pytajcie skąd ta przerwa, po prostu miałem kilka innych spraw do załatwienia^^ Co do screena... pochodzi z drugiej części cut-scenki otwierającej grę... Dante świetnie na nim wygląda... To wystarczający powód żeby ten screen się tu znalazł^^
Zrobione Frapsem DMC4 na PC 1280x1024 - wszystko Super High - MSAA x4 - V-Sync On

I searched long time for something like this but found nothing... So I decided to make it myself. It's fully written in Lua (after the TEXT in the conkyrc file is just a blank line ).
I made for the text, the rings and the boxes text tables so you can easily add and remove things, move them and change their size. The background image and the boxes are drawn with imlib2, so it overrides your desktop, you don't need to change your wallpaper.
There are 6 rings for the CPU, this is because I have a hexacore CPU, you can easily remove some rings if you have fewer cores.
In the bottom right corner is the volume in percent.
