Skyrim Desktop 1.02 by yorgash Skyrim Desktop 1.02 by yorgash
Skyrim Desktop - a Rainmeter to control and monitor your Windows!

Top wallpaper is Beauty of Skyrim - IX by MuuseDesign.
Others can be found on the official TES V - Skyrim page.

Updates:
1.02:
- Included truetype version of Trajan Pro font

1.01:
- Cleaned up the code
- Fixed some window position issues regarding on top / on bottom orders

The skin includes:
- Top dock that can be activated by moving the mouse to the top left corner when desktop is not showing
- Left side bar, a launcher for 5 x 15 applications, and switches mode for bottom bar
- Bottom bar that can be either system monitoring, weather forecast or media control
- Config utility: set your media player, weather location and units, drives you want to monitor, as well as the application categories for the launcher, and the applications themselves; you can just browse for a file to add it to the launcher!
You might have to install the Trajan fonts located in the resources\Fonts folder of the skin manually

Probably adding to the skin later!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How the skin works:
- Top dock in the middle lets you access the sidebar (Start), or turn it off. It also lets you access the system tray, and switch between running applications.
- The config on the top dock lets you configure the launcher's categories, and its applications - 5 x 15 programs. It also lets you configure what media player to use, your weather code and weather units.
- Sidebar launches your programs, or the user's files (documents, etc). It also switches the modes for the bottom bar, or turn it off in case you don't need it.
- Bottom bar has 3 modes. A system monitoring mode, with HDD / RAM / CPU usage, but you can extend it to show the top demanding process, your ping to a given server and system uptime. The second mode is a media controller, with album art, seeking in track, volume control and play/pause/next/prev playback control. The third is a weather display, that can be minimized / extended into 4 days forecast.
- The little transparent Skyrim icon stay on top of open windows, gets almost fully transparent on mouseover, and most importantly when fullscreen, it sets the middle dock in top of other windows unless you move your cursor further away from the dock. By getting it on top though, you can use the left side launcher without interrupting your current work session. After either launching an app with the left side launcher, or dismissing the dock though it's set back to normal (desktop) position.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What next:

I'm planning on making a matching visual style after the final release of the skin, with a simplistic manner, but this time a light one - the frames dark, but the main part of the windows will be light gray (reverse of the original).
It will be a visual style for everyday easy use.

This is utterly amazing!! :D Very nice work, it looks epic!

I've got one question: In the bottom bar, system tab, how can I change the D: and E: to F: ? I'd like to only have the C: and F: drives showing up.
Thanks and once again, amazing work! :D

You're welcome, I'm glad you like it!

Hmm I made it with 3 drives always showing (if you go to the top bar -> config, you can find which 3 it shows in the "system" tab). If I won't get lazy, I'll make an update where you can hide the 3rd drive.

Thanks for replying!

Does it monitor pen drives? 'Cause my pen drive is plugged into Drive E: which is being monitored in the System tab, but it says 0.0 instead of its actual free space.

Not sure how the plugin was written, might only monitor hard drives.

Might be that, yeah. Thanks for replying :)
One more question, in the dock.ini file, what should I write in order for the PC to open Computer, Control Panel, etc?

Thanks :)

I love this theme and have been using for a long time.  However, I've wanted to change the directories of some of my applications and the Set Path isn't working.  It worked when I first set it up but hasn't worked since.  Clicking it does nothing.

Strange.
Well if reinstalling the skin doesn't resolve it, you can still manually edit the dock's variables in your \Documents\Rainmeter\skins\Skyrim\resources folder; open dock.inc file with any text editor, and you'll see the list of variables it uses.

Cat1 .. Cat5: the main categories' name (Programs / Games / Internet / System / Places by default).

The rest go like "C1aName", where:

C1aName: Category 1 (Programs) - ranging from C1 to C5
C1aName: a - the first item of the category - ranging from "a" to "o"
C1aName: Name or Path. By name you can set the name it displays. The path is what it will launch. This way you can time in either a file to run (be it an exe file, doc file or text file), a web link (www.google.com will launch google with your default browser), or a folder (by typing in C:\ it will open up your drive C: in explorer).
