Artist's Note

Ok! here is my first custom made-from scratch theme complete with skins and everything. :D First off credit! thx to UltraBE for the steam wheel to eclipse for schmancy icons, and to Burnwell88 for the awesome clock. Ok, so i saw Ultra's steam wheel and thought it would make an awesome application launcher, and thus centered my creative juices around that idea. i hope you like it! don't hesitate to post any ideas comments or suggestions! I am always open, specially to color ideas for the bars or fonts, it seems kinda monochrome, and I am looking to make something colorful next time :D

NOTE - in order to get the temp portion working download speedfan! [link] its free and easy! (to set it to start when your comp starts create a shortcut and drag it to the startup folder on your start menu)
NOTE - for those of ya'll who already have your own steam wheel skin and configuration and want to use it, the main button for my wheel is under styles/default/mainbutton.png because that button blends with the clock

Nice work btw.
Thanks.

Nope ya dont need steam, but did you apply the steam wheel skin? (i put it in a seperate folder) and if you did you have to change the directory for the "mainbutton" since its set to my personal like (C:\Users\Isaac etc.) so try lookin at than, also the main button is just the white line in the middle of the clock at the center, wanted it to blend (maybe you just missed it XD)

Thanks, i had done all of that i just didnt know how to make the wheel show. it was a really blind mistake. um how do u make the wheel stay open after opening a link? Thanks again. Seriously amazing stuff.

Hrm, i havent thought of making it so that the wheel stays open after clicked, i could take a look at it and see how it turns out, but than should i make it that you have to click another button to close it? or permanantly leave it on, i can make that mod for you, but personally i like it toggling in and out XD, but give me a few more days, im currently workin on some add ons to the skin (and if i do say so some EPIC addons) XD

sounds cool, i thought that maybe it could just stay open after opening a link but u have the option to toggle it with the white button in the clock. Keen for the mods. Shot.

the instructions say to put xclock steamwheel and circle theme all in the 'skin' folder....does that mean the Circular folder that is left after uncompress? Or should i create a folder with the other rainmeter skins and put those files in that, and then move the circular dir to where it says in the readme...

Fri, Feb 5th at 11:51pm (7 years ago)

Bazerka says:

Move the xclock etc. folders into your my documents\rainmeter\skins (there should be a folder) thats where you can apply the skins. Than the Circular folder thats left is unecessary only if you wanted to (its the theme file but there is a bug in it that i fixed but i cant reupload to this site). The theme file is really nothing much just the background and positioning i used on my computer, if you still want it check out my deviantart at bazerka.deviantart.com for further instructions.

can you post the code for it? there is probably something wrong with the code o.o

Tue, Feb 23rd at 03:41am (7 years ago)
Avatar-50x50

- The noise when you click the icons: it's because the path to the .wav file is not complete. Try replace the code to [PLAY C:\Users\(user name)\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Steam Wheel\sounds\applaunch.wav] instead of just [PLAY Skin\Steam Wheel\sounds\applaunch.wav]

- The steam wheel "disappear" after selecting the icons: remove the #ToggleWheel# pr something like that in the execution code.

Hope it helps :)

Hi, I can't figure out how to change the fonts on the one with the CPU stats and everything. Next to "FontFace = ", I've tried

"Space Age"
"C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\space age.otf"
""Space Age"" (it's in quotes)

None of them tried to work, can you help me please? Also, I would like to remove the clock from the middle circle. How do I do that? Thanks.

Bazerka says:

Ok so first are you sure the font is named space age? Never heard of it before o.o, make sure you have it on your computer and go into microsoft word and look for it, than take that EXACT phrase of the font and put it in. It should work, but i've never tried using custom fonts before o.o. Have you tried changing the variable? o.o cause i believe i link all of them to the fontname near the top, the one under the weather link. just change the font from imagine font to the space age you wanted o.o tell me if its still not working XD

Bazerka says:

yea just change the color config in the skin from Normal Color - 255,255,255,220 to Normal Color - 0,0,0,0 that should do it (to do this right click on the skin > skin menu > edit skin)

Hi there, I've downloaded your theme and almost everything works fine. The only problem is that it is a pain to move the circles. I make them draggable and want to bring them lower on my desktop than it allows me to (I want to place the centre of the itunes circle at around 2/3 down on my screen and 2/5 right).
If you help me fix this, then my desktop will be perfect.
Thanks in advance.

So I love this. It is incredible and extremely well done.
Only two questions.

One, I also am having trouble with the CPU temp. Not a huge deal but I feel it would be awesome to have it all working.

And two, does anyone, author or anyone else, know how to get new icons that actually fit in the wheel. I have all the icons and the template but I have no idea how to make them the correct size.

Thanks for any help. This skin gets 100 internetz.

Gluumba says:

Ok, author, some of your code makes some of the buttons un-customizable, and i found out exactly what it is. Below where you customize it it says stuff like

[Icon10]
Meter=BUTTON
Hidden=1
x=170
y=504
ButtonImage=#Icon10Img#
ButtonCommand=!Execute #ToggleWheel# ["#Icon10Exe#"]....etc

note the ["#Icon10Exe#"], but some of them just reference an exact path instead of referencing the path in the editing area, so no matter what you do it will take you to Gmail, or those other websites. Please fix so other users who can't read code can have the full experience. Also thanks for the skin, it's awesome :D
