Newer version v1.5 (Final) here Game Controller Emoji 


Preview video

Require rainmeter 4+ and windows 10
Show game cover and execute link. Right click a game panel and select "Edit game" to customize or add more panel.
1.45 still use old game files, you can use your old gamelist and cover image without editing those file again (do backup before install).

Feature


You can navigate with mouse wheel or arrow keys, escape to exit.
Also work with controller (for you gamepad lover), navigate with DPad, activate launcher with Start (only when explorer or rainmeter in foreground, not to interfere during game).
Right click any game and select "Add panel" to add more game, choose "Display mode" to switch between fullscreen mode or classic mode.
Smooth scrolling animation, this will obviously cost CPU and performance. But this is a passive skin, its not like you gonna leave it running all the time.

What's new?
Now has it own game wizard, helps make customize game easier.
Spectrum theme (inspired from Spectrum launcher)
Improved scaling.
Changed font, also made it easier to change font in Setting.inc
Allow showing rows of icon (power of mathematics), you can set number of rows by editting Rows variable in skin .ini file. (This would increase skin size and reduce fps, lower bannerheight to compensate)
Set Title=1 to show title on game.

Update:
Allow switch between classic mode and fullscreen (use the same cover image, add your own image to fit your preferred display)
Add customize wizard and tweak Auto-generate.bat (run from wizard only)
Allow customize skin position and size in Resources\Settings.inc, if you have multiple monitor, this may helps. (if you have trouble moving skin, try disable 'keep on screen' option, this allow skin to move outside of screen area)
Add some game icon from Stroggge.
Fix button code.
Included Auto-generate batch file in resource folder, open this file to generate more game panels to display, if you have more than 20 games. (excessive number of panels may cause lower framerate)
Fix exit in application mode.

Note: if you want to launcher game/app with parameter, separate them in quote, ex: "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Discord\Update.exe" "--processStart" "Discord.exe"

Hi! Thanks for this amazing skin!

I installed without problem but when I open the games library the title of the games doesn't appear. Then i searched to [GameTitle] on the ListSpectrum but all seems to be normal. What can be the problem?

edit skin file ListSpectrum.ini, under [Variables] set Title=1

This is old version, edit list inc file in @Resource folder to edit icons, change TotalGame variables to determine how many icon there should be.
In Version 1.5 there's configuration interface, the button on top right to change TotalGame variables.
In Gamehub 2 right click skin > edit list, to open editor for the list displaying.

Look in GameHUB\resources\Settings.inc, Change the "ButtonAction" to the bang you want gamepad button to execute.
tank you I will try that.
sorry but I changed the folder of the bang but noting happened what syntax it shuld be?
ButtonAction=[!ActivateConfig Game ListSpectrum.ini]
not-Finch's avatar
eh, if you just change folder to Game it should work though, have you refresh the button skin?
though i don't recommend changing the folder, you need to find all [!ActivateConfig] bang in all the skin and change to proper parameters.
(sorry for late respond, you were replying to yourself)
