This is my modified version of UrulokiBurning Mass Effect Rainmeter skin fav.me/d4d3wtm
His is very cool, but there were a few things I wanted to change, and one change led to another and three weeks later I've taught myself how to make Rainmeter skins, well as a beginner I suppose.
While his and mine do look very similar there are a lot of code changes. I also changed a lot of the graphics files, I even went back to the Mass Effect game and took a lot of screenshots of the interface to hopefully improve some of the elements. I guess you'll be the judge of that.
I have not included all of the pieces that come with his skin as I thought they were redundant or I consolidated them. The only skin I included but did not touch was the Media Player. I don't play music on my gaming PC, but maybe someone else would. All credit goes to UrulokiBurning for that one.
A few notes on what I added.
CPU Monitor: It should detect how many processor cores your PC has and display the correct number of gauges. Also it "should" detect if you have an Intel or AMD processor and display the correct icon to the left of the gauges. As I don't have an PC with an AMD processor I can't exactly test that.
Hard Drive Monitor: Is set to monitor drives C: and D:, although you can change that. Click on the icon for the drive and it will change which drives stats show up. I also created some icons to represent four common hard drive manufacturers and you can set a different one for each drive by clicking on the icon. It will cycle though the four possibilities.
I want to thank UrulokiBurning and anyone who's work went into his skins as well as the people on the Rainmeter forums for helping me with learning Rainmeter.
As this is my first try at a Rainmeter skin please let me know if something isn't working. As I did this with the latest release of Rainmeter, if you are having problems check to make sure you have the most recent buildl 2.1 rainmeter.net/cms/
By the way the tabs at the top of the screenshot are the skin I created for sTabLauncher fav.me/d4fjfa0
Edit: I just uploaded a newer rmskin file because I've tested the skin on my nephew's PC which is an AMD quad-core and cores 2-4 didn't show up. So I fixed it. So those of you with AMD processors it should work now.
I also forgot to put the link for the program SpeedFan, which is needed for the monitoring things like the temp of the CPU and Hard Drives. So here it is. www.almico.com/sfdownload.php
Edit 2: There was an error in the Rainmeter.cfg file that would give you and error that "Starup" doesn't exist. It was suppose to be "Startup". Thanks DustyBoyT for bringing this to my attention.
Edit 3: Lately I've started getting more requests to post tutorials on how to use/edit Rainmeter skins or Windows syntax. While I do want to be helpful I have no interest in writing tutorials on either Rainmeter or Windows. Both of these products have excellent tutorial resources on their respective web sites.
When I decided to create this skin I had zero knowledge about Rainmeter, but I had an interest and it took several weeks to put this together. I am very gratified that so many people enjoy this skin. This is, by a rather large margin, the most successful thing I've ever posted here on Deviant Art. If you like it, great, if you want to change it in any way, be my guest, but sorry I am not going to be writing any tutorials on how to do that.
As I didn't think I needed to spell it out specifically, but people keep asking the same questions, a lot of the things you can change about the skin, the Weather, paths for the buttons and several other things, are changed by pressing the "SETTINGS" button on the lower right of the button wheel.
Minimalism is my newest skin - I included a lot of things from another Rainmeter developer on this one - I'm not happy with it yet, but it's got me to think about some other skins I can make. This one was a quick develop after making a new wallpaper. _________________________________________________
I'm no longer working on this skin - due to not very much interest and my general distaste for the whole thing I've scrapped it. I leave it here only for those poor souls that do like it - if you have questions for general fixes/editing then ask away.
EDIT: *vozz went and added all the new emotes that have been added to the list. Took him a good 3 hours, and alot of Matt bugging, but he did, and I'm greatful, you should be too
He also managed to FUCK UP the main emote file, so all the emotes were off by one. That's fixed now, if you just downladed the new one, download it again please.
deviantART emoticon set for Trillian Pro 2
**This set only works with Trillian Pro 2.0 and higher**
Almost every DA emote is in this set, excluding admin emotes (except core admin, they're included), bullets, stars, etc. I also added 4 emotes that haven't yet been added to the official list. ( : stupid : :what: :rocky: and : yawn : )
Not all are shown in the pop-up emote list in your window. There are WAY too many, so I cut it in half. Play with the tags, almost guarantee it'll be there. Some are MSN friendly as well. For example:
1. Paste the 'daemotes' folder to your trillian/stixe/plugins folder
2. Go to your trillian preferences window
skins > advanced
Pick "DA Emotes" from the drop down box labelled 'Emoticons:'
3. Restart trillian.
It's highly recommended that you stop emotes from resizing based on font size. To do this:
Go to your trillian preferences window
windows > display
uncheck the "Scale Emoticons to size" box.
Otherwise the emotes only show up properly when you use 8pt font.
deviantART.com for allowing me permission to use all official DA emotes.
Hey! Finally I'm done with version 0.2 of The Interface. First of all, I'd like to apologize for being MIA for a while. I've had a lot of other stuff to do, but that's a long story, so let's skip right to the good stuff!
The Interface has gone through yet another complete rewrite. This basically means that the code is; more organized, more optimized, easier to edit and generally just better written. In addition, of course, there are some new features!
** File browsing within The Interface: By using the FileList plugin by Elestel you can now browse through folders. This new feature makes it easy to setup bookmarks and application links. The Lower Green Bar has also been changed to incorporate this new function to act as a complete file browser (with some limitations of course).
** Automated Positioning System: The Interface will now adjust it's own position based on what screen resolution you have. The currently supported resolutions are:
Tested on Windows 7 x86 only, but works on x64 as well (withous the content of "System files" folder). System files for x86 pre-SP1! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
In order to use custom themes you have to patch your system files. To do that, download and install Universal Theme Patcher from this link:
