Port To Rainmeter by DarknesFreak

Her is my latest work, I liked the original design of the Litestep them created by x-spirit,but the problem was that i hated using LiteStep So i said why not port it to rainmeter and so i did of course i added some modification to the original design, people who are familiar or used the LiteStep them by x-spirit will see the difference, i wasn't planing on sharing this theme i kind of made it for my self, and than i changed my mind so i hope you like it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

thanks to :iconx-spirit: for letting me port it to rainmeter and :iconsmurfier: for the help


her is the original LiteStep theme fav.me/d3hw4ur

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

:bulletblue:Pack include :

Rmskin for easy install
Collection of wallpapers that go well with this skin ( wallpapers in the preview are included to )

:bulletorange: ohh My next theme will be in futuristic high tech style i will add a preview in the next few days.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

to use this theme in a good way do this

- Click on the rainmeter icon in the try section
- Choose Edit Settings
- Under the Rainmeter section in the config text file on top Write this DesktopWorkArea=0,60,1440,900

where the 1440 and the 900 are the resolution of my screen you have to set them up to your screen resolution for this to work
and the 60 is the distance which will be saved for the bar, that way the skin will always be visible

refer to this for more info rainmeter.net/cms/Settings-Rai…

Skin is featured in this article nerdsmagazine.com/rainmeter-th…

you can delete the icons from the skin folder if you don't want to use them, or you can change them to whatever you want :D

Sorry for the double post, I am not sure how to edit my other comment so I added this one. I had one question, on the screenshots you posted it looks absolutely stunning, and it is almost the same on mine, except instead of it being 60px tall it is at least 120px tall and I am not sure how to make it smaller. It looks rather bad being so tall. Do you or anyone else know of a possible solution, please? I love this, but taking up so much height looks bad. Thank you

Hi
Really great work, but I want to do some editing.
I want all those information popups to appear above the bar (they appear below, which i dont want since i am using this bar as my taskbar.)
So please tell me how to do this.
I tried editting coordinates but the things disappear above bar.
Please help.

unfortunately you can't do that if you try to touch anything you will mess everything up as everything is connected unless you're an expert in rainmeter scripting language, and you know what you're doing

actually, i know that much. Have a look at my editting of this bar->

(i made it thinner, added an fb bar (though image is copied) and also moved music a little away from controls.

i know things are still complexer. but you are creator man.
so Can you do it please?
