!IMPORTANT!: Deviantart does NOT allow me to update my skin as the Rainmeter category is now .rmskin only. This makes an attempt to upload an updated RAR file impossible (invalid file type for category) and a switch to RMskin impossible (file types have to match).

This is why I am redirecting you to an external link. Just click the SKIP AD button on the upper right corner, nothing else.

BlueVision V0.2 Alpha


All teasers and previews finally have an end! BlueVision V0.2 Alpha, the futuristic looking system monitoring Rainmeter skin based on the v5 tech brush set by Zane @ Z-designs, is now available for download!

CPU gallery included to easily select the CPU you’re running on (single/duo/quad/hex), give a preview, and automatically launch all scripts of your desired layout. The 4 layouts are (self-explanatory) “CPU 1-12 COMPLETE” for the entire skin (with buttons), “CPU WITHOUT TEMP GRAPH” for the temperature graph disabled, “CPU 1-12 WITHOUT TEMPERATURE MEASURES” to disable the temperature measures completely and “CPU 1-12 GRAPH ONLY” for the graph only without any strings.

- New gadget: Weather radar map: Showing the latest weather.com radar pictures of your desired location. Uses color-matrix and an overlay to fit the theme. To display your location edit the skin and past the link to your map under the “URL=” variable.


6 years have passed since I made this skin. I was just a teenager. A lot has changed since then. Right now I do not plan to release further updates - Along with university and other hobbies I simply do not have the time.


Biggest credit goes to Zane @ Zanimation for creating this beautiful tech brush set and friendly answering my E-mails.

Special thanks and credit for letting me use and modify their scripts goes to:

LAvalon @ Deviantart for his Black Glass skin
Nylons @ Deviantart, for his XXX Amp skin
YahibazOu @ Deviantart, for his World Time Zone Map skin
Kealri @ Deviantart, for his Recycle bin script included in Enigma.
Jeffrey Morley @ Rainmeter forums for his geobytes location script.

Why no AIMP support? It is the un-official follow up of Winamp and likely a lot more used these days then Winamp (also crashes less)

Weather radar does not seem to work unfortunately, not with the delivered links nor with trying out some of my own

(link tried: members.home.nl/tianwa/noni/jo…)

Sorry, but with the monetized link, loads of people won't ever get this skin. I tried, but software to keep my system safe from malware stopped the circle of doom links.

If you want to share something, do it freely. Don't be an asshole and use monetized links with malware.

Here is a direct link to the .rar file that is hosted right here on this very site. (I guess not being able to post it here was a lie? Also, why not convert to RMskin?)

Other sites that g3xter posted this skin on have the same malicious url's.

Was a lost cause on my new 4k monitor, but it made my old 1920x1080 useful again.  Nice skin.
