Skyrim Rainmeter Suite v2 by Axerron Skyrim Rainmeter Suite v2 by Axerron

Version 2.0 of Skyrim Rainmeter Skin Suite


4 new skins, new variations of old skins, fixed bugs and more user friendly customization. Full changelog in the attached Read Me file.

Changes and additions were based mainly on the huge amount of feedback I got from you guys. Thank you for it :dalove:


Skyrim Rainmeter Suite v2 contains 12 separate skins, some of them in multiple variations.

:bulletblack: Battery life bar (customizable color)
:bulletblack: 2 Clock skins in format H:M:S
:bulletblack: 3 CPU utilization bars (customizable color)
:bulletblack: 4 Day of month, year and day of week indicators (with Tamrielic names)
:bulletblack: 3 separate HDD skins (customizable color)
:bulletblack: Horizontal sidebar
:bulletblack: Launcher with 10 premade buttons
:bulletblack: Music player controller, compact and large ver.
:bulletblack: 3 Physical memory skins (customizable color)
:bulletblack: Shutdown, Sleep & Restart buttons
:bulletblack: PC running time indicator
:bulletblack: Vertical sidebar

Everything was coded by me from scratch, graphics are either by me or were reworked from an in-game screenshot.

Thanks to :iconrealironfist: for making Tamrielic names modification :thanks:

You can grab a lot of awesome HiRes screenshots/wallpapers like the one I used for background from DeadEnd Thrills [link]

Unless there are some major problems or issues found, version 2.0 is final. I'm not going to make any more skins for this suite. You are welcome to make more skins yourself, but I would appreciate that you credit me, if you use part of my skin, distribute it somewhere else or expand/modify any skin, and let me know about your final result. Thanks :w00t:


Please, read the READ_ME_FIRST.txt file before asking any questions.
I will do my best to help you in any way possible but a lot of problems can be solved just by following the instructions in the Read Me file.

Instruction how to add more buttons to the Launcher are also in the Read_Me !

Hopefully, all major bugs have been removed. If you find any, please let me know in the comments. I will try to address them ASAP.

Enjoy and if you like this suite, let me know! :eager:

sowwie to bother you but is there a way to set up VLC to the music thingy, first time using rainmeter and im still a bit lost
damienblack500 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015
Firstly, I use no other skin except this (but I pair it with a binary clock I found).  Absolutely love it.
However, when editing the vertical and horizontal bars, I am not able to get them to stay to the desktop even if I set them to that layer and all else to the bottom.  Suggestions please?
Everything else is fine, and not everything goes beneath the bars, just the shutdown, music, and launcher.  Help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

there is no health (battery) bar
pretty cool though
mitoki-hime Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I think the health/battery bar is missing or its not loading on my rainmeter
TheMidnightWerewolf Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2015
I have a new idea if you ever wish to update to a Version 3

Could we have a notes section that resembles the quest journal when you pause the screen please <3?

Otherwise, this is so fantabulous

Is anyone else having trouble getting the music player to work with VLC?

How can I make the clock 12 hr instead of 24 hr?
SoulCharizard Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2014
The variables for the music player, where do I place it? Should I place it in the measure player or the measure player state?
Ion7457 Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2014
I install the skin, but normally, when you install it, the rainmeter pops up right? Well it didn't? So I can never actually USE my rainmeter? Idk what I'm doing wrong, it happens to a lot of other skins I use too. What am I doing wrong?
anticrossysq Featured By Owner Edited Nov 20, 2014
It looks awesome!!! Great work!!!
Blazingocean Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Probably my favorite rainmeter skin. Looks very pleasing and organised. 

It would be nice if the battery bar ( Skyrim health bar ) decreased to the middle of the bar, similar to in the game - as opposed to decreasing from right to left. 
PriestlyAxis77 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2014
Is there a limit to how many buttons I can add to the launcher?
SlyDirector Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2014
im kinda new to rainmeter how do i edit the words hey, there! Middle ect.
Battousai124 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2014
Great skins, I love them and have already edited the hdd_x3 to an hdd_x6 (I have 6 HDDs I wanna monitor^^).
But I really would like to change the "Date and Time Tamriel names" to use a 24-hour clock insted of the usual 12-hour am/pm clock and somehow I don't get my winamp to function in the music player. I changed the variable in variables.txt to the right one (which is displayed just a few lines above it) I hope but it still isn't working.

I cant seem to get the menu to work no matter how hard I try. Would it be a pain to ask for a video tutorial?
Merlander1 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2014
Also how can you save it so the buttons stay on top of the bars. i.e. Sleep Shutdown Restart
That kind of stuff
Merlander1 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2014
Since I use Windows media player for my music, is there no way to navigate my music with your media player? Currently I have to start the song I want to listen to and keep the player open, I can't even switch songs; Is there any use to your media player over windows other than aesthetics?
budyniek1112 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Music player is for all players ? Or just winamp or else ?
UlatMayheem Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014
Maybe a stupid question but can I add more to the launcher? Ten isn't enough for me.
budyniek1112 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014  Student Digital Artist
You can copy i think the code and it will work.

Love this, it's just like being in the game. Amazing work!
91-Dante Featured By Owner Edited Jul 16, 2014
I think I must be stupid.  After installing Rainmeter, what exactly am I supposed to do?  I'm either overthinking this thing or I'm truly to dumb to understand.
Once you got a skin/theme downloaded, go to your "Documents" and there should be a Rainmeter folder there. Open up Skins and that's where you dump skin folders.


If you do this while Rainmeter is already online, open up rainmeter and press "Refresh All" on the bottom left corner. :)

how do you work the launcher??????/?
Narum96 Featured By Owner May 9, 2014
For some reason, I can't get the changes in tha "variables" file to stick. I've made sure it's correct, and I've tried updating, restarting the program, and restarting my computer, with no good luck. Also, my horisontal and vertical bars doesn't appear. Could use some help here :)
Narum96 Featured By Owner May 9, 2014
Also, I seem to be missing many textures when looking at your version of it and comparing it to mine.
rance4103 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2014

rance4103 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2014

This is probably a dumb question, but wheres the download link?
FreezerBurner Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2014
I'm using Spotify and for some reason I haven't been able to get the full settings of the Music player to work.  I can get the name of the artists and song no problem, but the artwork, volume, repeat and shuffle won't go.  Any suggestions?
