Skyrim Rainmeter Suite v2 by Axerron Skyrim Rainmeter Suite v2 by Axerron

Version 2.0 of Skyrim Rainmeter Skin Suite


4 new skins, new variations of old skins, fixed bugs and more user friendly customization. Full changelog in the attached Read Me file.

Changes and additions were based mainly on the huge amount of feedback I got from you guys. Thank you for it :dalove:


Skyrim Rainmeter Suite v2 contains 12 separate skins, some of them in multiple variations.

:bulletblack: Battery life bar (customizable color)
:bulletblack: 2 Clock skins in format H:M:S
:bulletblack: 3 CPU utilization bars (customizable color)
:bulletblack: 4 Day of month, year and day of week indicators (with Tamrielic names)
:bulletblack: 3 separate HDD skins (customizable color)
:bulletblack: Horizontal sidebar
:bulletblack: Launcher with 10 premade buttons
:bulletblack: Music player controller, compact and large ver.
:bulletblack: 3 Physical memory skins (customizable color)
:bulletblack: Shutdown, Sleep & Restart buttons
:bulletblack: PC running time indicator
:bulletblack: Vertical sidebar

Everything was coded by me from scratch, graphics are either by me or were reworked from an in-game screenshot.

Thanks to :iconrealironfist: for making Tamrielic names modification :thanks:

You can grab a lot of awesome HiRes screenshots/wallpapers like the one I used for background from DeadEnd Thrills [link]

Unless there are some major problems or issues found, version 2.0 is final. I'm not going to make any more skins for this suite. You are welcome to make more skins yourself, but I would appreciate that you credit me, if you use part of my skin, distribute it somewhere else or expand/modify any skin, and let me know about your final result. Thanks :w00t:


Please, read the READ_ME_FIRST.txt file before asking any questions.
I will do my best to help you in any way possible but a lot of problems can be solved just by following the instructions in the Read Me file.

Instruction how to add more buttons to the Launcher are also in the Read_Me !

Hopefully, all major bugs have been removed. If you find any, please let me know in the comments. I will try to address them ASAP.

Enjoy and if you like this suite, let me know! :eager:

Is there any way to hook up google play music to this? I found the desktop GPM app and I'm not very experienced in Rainmeter so I'd like some help if possible. It's giving me many headaches.

Hello !

I need help for use the music player... I set my music player in Variables.txt and it work but I can only use the "PREVIOUS", "PLAY" and "NEXT" options and I can't see the music information. The music player had work correctly on my previous Win7 computer but not in my current Win10 computer... perhaps because of my Win version ? Could exist an plugin in order to work in Win10 ?

Thanks a lot for your reponse !

PS : Sorry for my english, I'm french ^~^

There is no read me anywhere. It's not in the rmskin pack or where it's unpacked. There are some stuff I'd like to add like folder locations (not file location) or for example to open power options window since I use it a lot.

Hey Axerron! I really love what you did there, amazing work and thanks for that! :)
I just have one problem, the music player doesn't work... I edited it to WMP in the Variables.txt but it changes nothing, do I have to download a plugon or something?

PS: nvm, I refreshed the skin and now it works :)
ZacharielProductions Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2017
hi :) can anyone explain to me how i set uo the launcher thingy and music player thingy? Thanx :)
fir3tornad0 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2017
The music player does not work with Spotify. Added it in the variables file.

Prev play and next works.

The remaining don't work. Not sure if I m doing something wrong.
Juzzylp Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2017
Is there any way you can change the health bar? I have a PC not a Laptop so the charge is useless. anyway i can change it to cpu temp? or some other settings
deeevyn Featured By Owner Edited Jan 2, 2017
Is it possible to have both the modern type and the Tamrielic named time/date options displayed? 

I assumed you could just copy and paste text around but that didn't work.. 

Lady-Boyle Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2016
Where's SkyUI?

Also, great job. For a second I actually thought most of it was a screenshot of the game.

Is there any way to reorient the CPU meter so that the text is on the left-hand side instead of the right-hand side?
Franknmullet Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2016
Yes you can change that, but you have to go into the .ini file and change the x and y coordinates.  navigate to the theme files and look for the cpu bar file to find the .ini file.  In each of those files, you want to look for the [cpubarbackground] [metercpuusedbar] and metercpuusedprefix] items.  I think the x coordinate for [cpubarbackground] is 0, [metercpuusedbar] is 21r (which is 21 px after the start of the first item) and [metercpuusedprefix] is 225.  That means the words are after the bar.  If you change the cpuusedprefix to x=0, [cpubarbackground] to something like x=10R (which means 10px after the end of the item) and leave the metercpuusedbar alone, that should do the trick.  You can play with the numbers a bit as well depending on your preferences on spacing.  
valdinekayne Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2016
No way to add more than 10 apps?
Franknmullet Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2016
Yes you can do it,  check the read_me_first.txt file in your skin folder.  He has a set of instructions on how to do it.  :)  
ajmorr2000 Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2016
how do i get the vertical and horizontal bars behind the words
TheMightyOwl123 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2017
Put the launcher's load in in the Rainmeter manager on 1 and the bars on 0.
fir3tornad0 Featured By Owner Edited Jan 24, 2017
Set transparency and make it click through ( basically unclickable)
Hey, I love this skin!! I am having a problem though, I changed my music player to Spotify and it won't show that it is registering what is playing, but the play/pause and previous and next buttons all work still... -_- Is there a fix for this yet, or is it a simple problem I am overlooking? It was working fine when I had it controlling iTunes, and refreshing it has not yielded any results.
Franknmullet Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2016
Hi,  I don't know enough about the way he has his player set up but I do know that according to the rainmeter instructional web pages, Spotify is only partially supported.  It says:

  • SpotifyPlayerName=Spotify
    Partially supported. Only the types ArtistTrack and the bangs PlayPlayPauseStopNext, and Previous are available.
It could have something to do with the way he has something set up, or it could just be because of spotify.  Sorry I couldn't help more.
Zyous241 Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2016
for some reason the music player won't display anything even though i changed the PlayerName=xxxxxx to Spotify
bebekara Featured By Owner Edited Nov 5, 2016
Hi Axerron, thanks a bunch for this, it's amazing and works perfectly. I have one question: the part with battery level, cpu usage and memory. How can I make it so the meter is inverted? Like the game, it kinda is the opposite direction, if you see what I mean. Ingame, when you are using either mana or stamina, or your health goes down, the meter depletes starting on the left part of the bar, whereas on the rainmeter skin it does it starting on the right. What is the part in the edit that I can change so it is like the game?
hornet871 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2016
I can't seem to get proper functionality of the music player. The buttons work, but they don't provide any track info or the album artwork

Quick question: For this player, does Windows Media Player always need to be open to use this Skyrim player or is there a way so I can still play music while having WMP closed ? Thanks .
Helios7719 Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2016
I'm having a great amount of difficulty - the play/previous/next buttons all work when playing music from spotify, but the album art/name of song/runtime don't show up. Any ideas?
jefthereaper Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2016
right click and tell it to "refresh skin"
for some reason it stops working from time to time, for me it works again if I just refresh the skin.
jefthereaper Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2016
Oh, and can you also give the health bar a second use? (something else to indicate, right now I'm using this skin on my desktop and laptop, but my desktop has no battery, so the bar pretty much does nothing at all)
jefthereaper Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2016
I really like it! very nice work.

Wondering tough if you might be able do add a piece of code that makes the player invisible/go away when your music player (in my case windows media player) is not on,
I've seen other rainmeter player's use said feature where they are invisible up until you start up your music program.

Is there something that I'm missing or isn't the things played in spotify shown in the Mediaplayer? I can use the pause, previous/next, but I'm not getting any other type of feedback into it, is that suppose to happen or is it something that I've have missed.
