Skyrim Rainmeter Skin by Axerron Skyrim Rainmeter Skin by Axerron

Version 2.0 is out! Grab it here: [link]

New skins including music player, battery skin and shutdown buttons!


This is the first version of my Rainmeter skin - inspired by an absolutely awesome game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim! :squee:

Also, it is my first Rainmeter skin in general, so please go easy on me. :please: :)


The theme itself contains 8 separate skin groups which are made to work together or in combination with any other skins as you can see in this screenshot: [link]
:bulletblue: Vertical sidebar
:bulletblue: Horizontal sidebar
:bulletblue: Launcher with 10 premade buttons (you can add more, paths and apps are customizable by middle-mouse clicking on the app buttons)
:bulletblue: Date meters w/ or w/o time
:bulletblue: Standalone clock H:M:S
:bulletblue: Three separate HDD meters
:bulletblue: Virtual + physical memory meter
:bulletblue: CPU utilization meter
:bulletred: You can easily change the color of the bars to your liking. The choices are (in accordance to the bars in game) health (red), stamina (green), magicka (blue) and level (cyan/pale blue).

All the code and graphics are made by me from scratch, except for the HDD/RAM/CPU bar background, which was reworked from an in-game screenshot.

That awesome screenshot/wallpaper you see in the background is from DeadEnd Thrills [link] Definitely visit this guy's site for a load of gorgeous HD screenshots from the latest games! :eyepopping:

I will try to add more meters in the future (suggestions are welcome) but now the finals are coming (brace yourself).

There are detailed instructions are in the instructions section of each individual skin. You can view them by loading your skins through the new Rainmeter graphic interface. It should help you to personalize or change whatever you like.

I hope I eliminated most of the bugs, I'm still a newb though, so please any feedback is more than welcome. I will try to fix whatever is not working or help you set it right ;)

Hope you like it!

EDIT: People, try to read the instructions I put in each of the skins first. It might save you some time ;)

EDIT 2: If you are getting errors with the launcher, download the latest version of Rainmeter here [link] . The !bang commands have been altered, upgrade to the latest version should solve the issue.

Hey, I love the skin! But I am having some trouble getting the 10th App in the Launcher to work. I have tried several programs to see if it was just one program not working, but it's all of them. The other Apps works fine.

Is there any way to change the alignment of the text on the launcher?
Haruno93 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012
Is there any way to make the test of the launcher skin align on the right-hand ride instead of the left-hand side? I tried to change the string alignment thing in the config file, but that made the shortcut disappear.

Hopefully not sounding like an idiot, but how do you convert the programs to the sidebars?
