N7 Rainmeter by dante-stygian N7 Rainmeter by dante-stygian
This is my second shot at messing with Rainmeter. This time I actually started modding bits I had collected to match the N7 wallpaper created by ~Hayter found here: [link]

The file includes a readme for how to install rainmeter, this theme, rocketdock, and any special instructions. Please read it.

Install file is N7.rmskin for ease of install.

####Bits used and moddified

I have heavily modified this media player. I have added the repeat and shuffle buttons, moved everything around, and added to it's open feature. When a media player is not running, you will see nothing except the open button. Clicking this shows the whole player, opens your media player and starts it playing. You will also then have a close button that can be used to close your media player and hide this skin except for the open button.

toastSuite: VolumeControl by :devtoastbrotpascal - [link]
I modified this one to remove all images ecxcept the slider and the "knob". I also made it inline to fit with the theme.

Omnimo by =fediaFedia - [link]
I only used the power buttons from this skin. I have modded them only to use the Mass Effect font and nothing more.

Black Royale Suite by ~killerbeat - [link]
This is mostly as is. I changed the RSS to be right aligned and the font to use Mass Effect. Otherwise it's pretty much the same. All in all I am using the CPU, RAM, Processes, Network, Gmail, Date, Clock and RSS feed from this skin.

Input Notes by ~vonSmallhausen - [link]
Only changed to use Mass Effect font

Enigma by ~Kaelri - [link]
The only thing being used from here is the taskbar.

Tech Vision by ~Burnwell88 - [link]
This contains the circles surrounding the clock.

Gingerbar by ~addyf812 - [link]
This is where I got the wireless skin from. Only changed to use Mass Effect font.

I think he meant a layout. That way you just choose the layout and it auto positions everything as it is on your pic, or however you set it to... Anyway, thanks, looks pretty cool.

For Rainmeter. Because you just made it as that other thing, which I don't know name of. Skin ?
So everyone have to rearange it himself. It'd be better.
And this is also a greeeeeat work :dummy:

Having never used Rainmeter before, and reading all the tutorials and such (which didn't help much), I'm having a few issues with this skin.

1: The Shutdown buttons (located at the top of your screencap) do not function for me.

2: The volume meter doesn't work for me. It doesn't even do the sliding animation.

3: When attempting to config the Media Player to work with my WMP, it doesn't let me "Finish".

4: Is there a way to edit/change the RSS feeds to link of other things? I'd like to change one to basically hotlink me to various sub-reddits etc.

5: No matter how many times I try, I can absolutely not figure out how to change the indicators on the Taskbar icons.

6: I accidentally made something "click through", and not I can't move it. Wat do?

Yeah. I'm aware that's quite a bit of questions, so I don't blame you if you just say I'm stupid and ignore me haha. But I fooled around with this for a good 3 hours and can't seem to figure out what's wrong with said problems. QQ

Update 2:

Finally got WMP to work, now the only issue I'm having with it, is how do I keep the real player from showing, when I want to use it solely through the skin?

Just an update.

I've figured out Numbers 4, 5, and 6. Everything else I'm still struggling heavily with.

:icondante-stygian:
dante-stygian Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
that leaves numbers 1 and 2. 1 is likely the file location. Edit the config and make sure the file those meters are looking for is in the correct spot. As far as the volume slider, I assume you mean the master volume one. Not entirely sure why it is not sliding. Have not run into that problem. Can you post the config you have somewhere and I will read through it an see if I can spot a problem?

I changed the FontSize of my Time Clock (default 20 - changed to 30) and it worked fine, however, the AM/PM text is being covered up by the new size of the clock. Why doesn't the AM/PM text adapt to the new size of the font and look proper?
Reply
:icondante-stygian:
dante-stygian Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Would likely be caused by the width. Change the width on the time meter and it should move the AM/PM. Can also simply remove the W variable from time and the AM/PM should just stay after it. Set the AM/PM X value to 5r and see if that works.

Disregard this question, I figured it out. I needed to change the X axis to a higher number. Looks fantastic

Rainmeter\Skins\N7\Indicators should be it. Just copy the one you like and replace the rocketdock indicator png with it :)

NVM! I figured it out :)

I do have another problem though, for my Volume, it literally only shows the volume, I don't have the display that you do for showing the album, the time of the song or even the pause, rewind, or fast-forward features. Is there a way to enable them?

Pretty much the uniqueness :) I kept on going into the Rainmeter folder found in the C drive, I did not know there was one located in the documents folder as well. Everything looks lovely though, you did a fantastic job! Any hopes for a Dragon Age version?

sorry I literally downloaded Rainmeter because of this theme, once I have it set up how will I switch from program to program, if I click the program on rocketdock it will just open it again?
Reply
:icondante-stygian:
dante-stygian Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Rocketdock has a setting (normally the default) to open the currently active instance of the program. So if you have chrome open, it shows an indicator under it that it is open. If you minimize it or open something over it and click again, it will simply bring it to the front or maximize the open version.
