Tech Overkill - UPDATED (Version 23.11.2013) by GoTechTalk Tech Overkill - UPDATED (Version 23.11.2013) by GoTechTalk
+++UPDATED 23/11/2013+++
**LOOK BELOW THE LIST OF SKINS USED FOR LIST OF REQUIRED PROGRAMS YOU WILL NEED TO GET THIS SKIN TO WORK RIGHT**
**Also Highly Recommended 'tweaks' for this Skin are listed below (like the wallpaper, sound scheme, cursor)**

I created a desktop that works just fine for me but may be too busy for others.  To each their own.

As I use the laptop this theme was build on for my job in IT,  I set up the launchers for things like Remote Desktop, GoToAssist Expert and so on. You may need to make a few changes.  (To change the Vertical Launcher, Horizontal Small Launcher, Folders (half-circle under the clock) and Website links (on the end of the spokes) you need to edit the Config.ini file under the Resources folder,  It's pretty self explanatory once you are in the Config.ini file.)

++UPDATED INFO++
This new version has added a couple of skins, a new app, and I have cleaned up the folders, reducing the total size of this skin by 3 MB


Rainmeter Skins Used:

1. Avengers S.H.I.E.L.D OS Ver 1.2.0, by Daelnz - [link]

2. BlueVision V0.2 Alpha, by g3xter - [link]

3. Enigma, by Kaelri - [link]

4. Vuze Torrent Display, by SieSie - [link]

5. Hi-Tech Desktop, by takeshikawa - [link]

6. Mass Effect, by RickF7666 - [link]

7. Tech-A, by BurnWell88 - [link]

8. USB Mini Link, by aihehe - [link]

9. LocksState 2, by balazslaci - [link]

10. Rotating Sphere, by g3xter - [link]

11. QuickURL, by Geduget - [link]

12. Pacebo WiFi by Wiedzma - [link]



Required programs needed for this skin to function:

CoreTemp   To get the temps for your GPU, Hard Drives, CPUs to display in some skins.

SpeedFan    To see your fan speeds correctly (and a couple of the skins need this to display temps)


Optional Stuff I use to enhance this Skin:

iTouch   This is a nice addition to the theme, giving you a 'drop of water in a lake' effect when you click on the screen.

Blue Cursor   I can't get it to screenshot but trust me, it goes well with this and other skins like this one.  This is a .rar of the cursor image files.

Windows sounds    Save in .wav format. Taken from a few video games and sci-fi TV shows.   ArE YOu StiLL ThERe? 

LogOn Screen Changer   Right-click and run as admin.  Select a wallpaper and you have a new background for your log in screen

The Wallpaper  is simply the black Lenovo "Think" wallpaper that came on my T430.  I was just flipping through folders of wallpapers and this one just ... worked.  I may mod it to turn the 'dot' over the "i" from red to blue.

I have a simpler version of this theme but in red and i want to add a few of these elements do you know a simple way of making them red (and yes i know the ones from the iron man theme switch between red blue and orange with the middle mouse button but i need the rest to change)

bit of a bug .. in fac it's not a bug ... its some lame ass invasive adware .... when you click 9gag in the avangers tweaked skin clock you get sent to 9 gag but if you click the round button under 9gag.com you get sent to some crap called kotaku.com ... no im not saying that kotaku is good or bad ... but since the other round buttons under the other website launchers sen you to the right website i say that kotaku is bad ... some lame ass site that relys on cheap tricks to get some traffic ... now for the fun part:
I can't find kotaku keyword ANYWHERE in my rainmeter skin scripts. any ide how that works?

looked again at the script of the thing .... aparently it had a link to another file to hide kotaku from a quick searck .. that file is the config file in the tweaked main folder. aparently under twitther  there was a link to ign ... both kotaku and ign were not on the box ... shame on whever put thoes there without warning :\

Just an amazing work you have done here !!! But i got one question: The sunset and sunrise config got itself to my place. Location 2 always displays "Fargo" but when i click on it (to get to the yahoo site) it directs me to the right location just as sunset/sunrise. Weather displays "Fargo" and even after clicking on it (redirection...) it displays "Fargo" on the yahoo site. Any suggestions how to solve it? :) Just searching for the files in the editor, but cant find them :(
Oh, and how do i get rid off my bin? ^^

Looks just confusing enough so that I'm the only person in my family to have a good chance of understanding most, if any, of the stuff here. Perfect.

This is another reason I love this skin.  It gives me all the info I need to know when I am on site doing repair work, and has the added bonus of making me look like a "tech wizard" (a customer's comment) to the clients.

I'm new to all of this, so I'm sorry if I sound like a complete noob :P
I have downloaded the file (7.7MB) and the 2 programs (coretemp and speedfan). I have Windows 8. So how do I install it on my computer?

Thanks in advance!!!

Ok, I've figured it out, now I don't know how to make it fit to the size of my screen (1920x1080)
