This is my modified version of UrulokiBurning Mass Effect Rainmeter skin fav.me/d4d3wtm

His is very cool, but there were a few things I wanted to change, and one change led to another and three weeks later I've taught myself how to make Rainmeter skins, well as a beginner I suppose.

While his and mine do look very similar there are a lot of code changes. I also changed a lot of the graphics files, I even went back to the Mass Effect game and took a lot of screenshots of the interface to hopefully improve some of the elements. I guess you'll be the judge of that.

I have not included all of the pieces that come with his skin as I thought they were redundant or I consolidated them. The only skin I included but did not touch was the Media Player. I don't play music on my gaming PC, but maybe someone else would. All credit goes to UrulokiBurning for that one.

A few notes on what I added.

CPU Monitor: It should detect how many processor cores your PC has and display the correct number of gauges. Also it "should" detect if you have an Intel or AMD processor and display the correct icon to the left of the gauges. As I don't have an PC with an AMD processor I can't exactly test that.

Hard Drive Monitor: Is set to monitor drives C: and D:, although you can change that. Click on the icon for the drive and it will change which drives stats show up. I also created some icons to represent four common hard drive manufacturers and you can set a different one for each drive by clicking on the icon. It will cycle though the four possibilities.

I want to thank UrulokiBurning and anyone who's work went into his skins as well as the people on the Rainmeter forums for helping me with learning Rainmeter.

As this is my first try at a Rainmeter skin please let me know if something isn't working. As I did this with the latest release of Rainmeter, if you are having problems check to make sure you have the most recent buildl 2.1 rainmeter.net/cms/

By the way the tabs at the top of the screenshot are the skin I created for sTabLauncher fav.me/d4fjfa0

For those who want the wallpaper here is the link kaff33nd.deviantart.com/art/Al…
Thanks Qwaftzefoni74 for finding it.

Edit: I just uploaded a newer rmskin file because I've tested the skin on my nephew's PC which is an AMD quad-core and cores 2-4 didn't show up. So I fixed it. So those of you with AMD processors it should work now.

I also forgot to put the link for the program SpeedFan, which is needed for the monitoring things like the temp of the CPU and Hard Drives. So here it is. www.almico.com/sfdownload.php

Edit 2: There was an error in the Rainmeter.cfg file that would give you and error that "Starup" doesn't exist. It was suppose to be "Startup". Thanks DustyBoyT for bringing this to my attention.

Edit 3: Lately I've started getting more requests to post tutorials on how to use/edit Rainmeter skins or Windows syntax. While I do want to be helpful I have no interest in writing tutorials on either Rainmeter or Windows. Both of these products have excellent tutorial resources on their respective web sites.

When I decided to create this skin I had zero knowledge about Rainmeter, but I had an interest and it took several weeks to put this together. I am very gratified that so many people enjoy this skin. This is, by a rather large margin, the most successful thing I've ever posted here on Deviant Art. If you like it, great, if you want to change it in any way, be my guest, but sorry I am not going to be writing any tutorials on how to do that.

As I didn't think I needed to spell it out specifically, but people keep asking the same questions, a lot of the things you can change about the skin, the Weather, paths for the buttons and several other things, are changed by pressing the "SETTINGS" button on the lower right of the button wheel.

Does anyone know how to duplicate the launcher?  I have a need for 3 of the launchers, but with separate, clickable items in each one.  I tried copy/paste the main folder, renaming it with a -2 on the end, and then editing the applications list for the second, saving and refreshing, but it still only has the info and items from the original i copied from.  When i click settings on the second instance, it opens the text file with the info for the second instance, but everything still looks like the original.  I even tried just taking the launcher portion of the skin and copy/paste/edit it, but same results.  Any help is appreciated.

Is anybody still using this skin?  I am having trouble setting up the weather/radar portion.  The author keeps saying that there are instructions on the settings tab of the launcher, however the instructions could definitely be worded better.  Can somebody please post the output of their settings text associated with weather and radar?  Thanks in advance.  Mine is as follows....what am I missing?

If anybody is still using this skin I would really appreciate some help.  The author keeps telling people that there are instructions to get the weather and radar set to the appropriate location, however it seems that the wording on that document could be better.  Can somebody please post the output of their associated txt file for weather and radar settings?  Thanks in advance.

Hi, everything works fine. but I have a few questions. 1. how do I change from Fahrenheit to Celsius? and 2. Somehow the Radar page does not work anymore. 3. How do I add more harddrives? Unfortunately the information was not sufficient.
RickF7666's avatar
I haven't even looked at Rainmeter or this skin in several years.  I do remember that the change in temp is the data coming from the weather web site.  Although you would have to change the "F"s in the skin to "C"s.  As for things not appearing this could be that the web sites referenced in the skin don't work any more or have been change.  As for adding more hard drives... well that would take duplicating the code for the hard drives in the skin.

There's a good chance that with all the updates to Rainmeter over the years there are much better ways to do things that the way I came up with in this skin.  Will I ever rework this skin and update it?   Most likely not.  My interest in Mass Effect after ME3 has all but evaporated, and from what I've seen from Andromeda it has dropped even lower.

ps.  Big fan of David Weber.  I even named my dog Honor.

hey, I was wondering (I'm not very good at this stuff) how would I go about changing the temperatures from farenheit to celsius in the HDD panel? thanks in advance!
Kibateo's avatar
Hey sorry to bother but i'm trying to figure out how to get the Media player to work, unfortunately the link in the applications page seems to be out dated and I can't figure out how to use it. Any help would be much appreciated.
Specifically the player doesn't seem to work unless AIMP3 is already open, also it doesn't display details like song name, album etc.
RickF7666's avatar
As I stated in the description the media player was the one part of this that I had nothing to do with.

Thanks.  I posted this six years ago and now just today a lot of people have suddenly started Favoriting it.  Did something happen that is drawing people to it?

I was attracted to one part of the entire thing.
I just wanted a simple CPU gauge that showed the temperature and your gauge fulfilled that.
Thanks a bunch for your hard work.

I don't know. I just saw it in browse. Also, I must say, the inclusion of a Networx feature on the rainmeter skin was a nice touch! :D

How do you change the weather location. 

Also, how do you get your CPU Temp to show up?

Your profile says your in St. Pete.  That's a bit more than 5 minutes.

You've got a lot of cool stuff in your Gallery.
