Deus Ex: Desktop Revolution

This is my first public Rainmeter skin. It is based in the Deus Ex: Human Revolution game user interface.
The components in this skin have been designed:
  • for a very low resources usage.
  • to be used in large screens (1.920×1.080).
  • for dark backgrounds (like the whole game ambient).
For a full description and credits read the Readme file.

Changes in version 1.1:
  • Slideshow big size added.
  • Weather.com XML URL updated (thanks to IforIndignation).
  • Catalan language fixed.
  • DENTON.TTF added.
  • Network Up/Dw literals fixed.

how do you change the USERNAME?
Llanas's avatar
By changing your username in your Windows system. Seriously, the username is taken from the system.
If you want to FAKE it and put whatever you want edit file:
   DeusExDR\Gadgets\Username\include\meters.inc
and change (substitute) line 50:
   MeasureName=MeasureUserName
for something like:
   Text=TheNameYouWant
Save the file, refresh the skin and you're done.
How do you get the baby pics up. I click on the box and it wont allow me to browse for one of my photos. Dont know how to add a pic through file/edit either. PLZ Help

Edit file settings.inc and change the variable SlideshowImagesPath (line 60) to the path where the pics you want to see are located.
How do I change the user pic to mine and not a preloaded one?

Go to folder Rainmeter\Skins\DeusExDR\@ Resources\Username\Icons, delete all files there and put yours. Your new files should be 114x114 png images.
Quick question! Is there a way to make the quote of the day change/update faster? Ive been looking through the commands but cant seem to find anything about update rate.

Thanks!

BTW awesome skin ive been a long time user!

Hi, thanks and sorry for the late answer.

To change the update frequency of the 'Quote of the Day' you only have to change the values 'UpdateQuote' and 'QuoteUpdateDivider' which can be found in the file 'Globals\variables.inc'.
The quote changes every "UpdateQuote x QuoteUpdateDivider" milliseconds. To make it fast put:
UpdateQuote=1000
QuoteUpdateDivider=<seconds_to_change_the_quote>

You can get more detailed information in:
docs.rainmeter.net/manual/skin…
Hey, nice work! How do I download this?

There should be a "Download" labelled button with a green down pointing arrow in the right of this page... Click on it.

Update Deus Ex: Desktop Revolution 1.1

Changes in version 1.1:
  • Slideshow big size added.
  • Weather.com XML URL updated (thanks to IforIndignation).
  • Catalan language fixed.
  • DENTON.TTF added.
  • Network Up/Dw literals fixed.
For people still using this skin, like I am, there is a fix out for the Weather Channel data.  

Open up your settings document and scroll down to Weather URLs. From there replace the following -

"h t t p ://xml.weather.com/weather/local/#WeatherLocationCode#?cc=*&unit=#MetricSystem#&dayf=4"

with this -

"h t t p ://wxdata.weather.com/wxdata/weather/local/#WeatherLocationCode#?cc=*&unit=#MetricSystem#&dayf=4"

Once done and saved, refresh the skin and the weather widget should work perfectly.

Be sure to remove the spaces in http, I added those to prevent it from generating a link.
how do you download it so you can use it
how to change the image of user?

PC -> Documents -> Rainmeter -> Skins -> DeusExDR -> resources -> Username -> Icons. after any modifications, to select the image you want click 'refresh skin'
Llanas's avatar
True. Just go to the folder Jack told you, remove any unwanted images and put your own ones. Refresh the skin and you're done.
Thanks, Jack. :) (Smile) 
how do I change where the weather information is coming from.
Llanas's avatar
File SETTINGS.INC:
Line 66:
   WeatherLocationCode=SPXX0066
   Put you city code there (visit www.weather.com/ - search for location and copy the code from the end of the URL there).
Line 70:
   WeatherCityName=Sabadell
   This is the visual name of your city (but you can put there anything... like Springfield or Pripyat...).

There are many more customizable things in this file; take a look and have fun.
