Artist's Note

TESTED - So Saint1121 on DA has graciously enough tested my rmskin based on his same monitor setup. With some manual alignment and not fully modified for his hardware and links setup here's his desktop.

UPDATE!!! - I have just repackaged this rmskin and selected minimum requirements XP. All I know is that I built this from downloading and installing skins from zip files. This is the first time using the rmskin packager since it just came out of beta this week. I'm not sure if it at all matters that my system is 64-bit and not 32-bit. If you are having trouble installing this or would rather have individual screens, I suggest clicking on the screenshot links and download the files I used from the original skin authors. I'm not sure why my file went from 10mb to 21.7mb, by selecting XP from the drop down menu for minimum requirements? I have no clue, its the same folder that's being packaged. IMPORTANT- for some reason I'm not able to upload the for XP file here or change the current one for windows 7 users, here's a link for XP Vista and 7 users on my DA page.

IMPORTANT: This is my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Rainmeter Setup on 3x23" 1920x1080 Monitor Configuration. This theme REQUIRES you to download the free Advanced Wallpaper Manager by this PC application will allow you to manage 3 different wallpaper settings for each display independently. I suggest you BACKUP your current settings before running this .rmskin.

Credits and Instructions: I am NO expert at programming or creating my own skins, not yet. This theme was made possible by modifying others skins and themes. Taking what I need to create a desktop that is reflective of my style and my own system's setup.

I encourage everyone to take a look at the Credits List provided in the following screenshot links which I try my best to give credit to the original authors skins and themes plus other items I used in my composition.

Blue JARVIS -
SHIELD+JARVIS UI -
Red JARVIS -

::: THE SETUP for 3 Displays :::
1. Download and Install Advance Wallpaper Management bundled in the DisplayFusion PC Application.
2. I placed the 3 individual Wallpapers in the Avengers folder when you install this .rmskin look inside the folder where your other skins are installed. Or you can download it from my Wallpapers Gallery Run the DisplayFusion Application and it is self explanatory, select and save your wallpaper settings. IMPORTANT, the .rmskin is configured to have Blue on the left, Iron Man in the middle and Red on the Right Display.
3. Download the Updated for XP Vista & 7 from here and run the .rmskin.
4. Play around with any skin settings via the skin manager or edit the .ini files to your needs.

To change the Shield Tag.png I added the Photoshop .psd file in the Shield Tag folder as well as the American Captain.ttf font I used, simply replace my image and text. Make sure you save it as a .png file replacing the original. To change the Adobe CS5.5 Large buttons I included the .psd Photoshop files in the same folder. The credit for the adobe icons provided for use with the small launchers goes to nokari


Again I suggest you follow the links I provided and explore the original skin authors DA page, questions I had on their skins they most likely have answered it already in the post dialog with other downloaders.

Enjoy!

Thank you for the detailed instructions and in particular the fact that you gave proper credit/links to skins from other authors. This post should be a guideline for anyone distributing a skin.

Thank you for the kind words, it's always cool to test the boundaries of a desktop tool that not only looks cool but is freakin awesome (Rainmeter). I spent many hours drawing inspiration from the original Authors and tryinfg to track down via the skins .ini files for their name or email. Reverse engineering their coding and playing around with various settings allowed me to quickly edit and get a feel for the Rainmeter workflow. I feel confident I will be able to create and author my own skin. Best practice in my industry is to give credit where credit is due, just on the basis that shared knowledge allows us all to build great things. Plus the recognition just feels good and is a testiment to everyone's creativity.

Forgot to mention a big Thank you to Brian/Rainmeter Developer from the rainmeter.net forum for outlining what the best practices are for packaging and proper crediting of authored skins and releasing my mod.
