Options now has a few new colouring options. All the options mean:

  • Account name: Your steam gifts name e.g "kennyist" your exact name!
  • Refresh time: This is for the featured part, Don't go below 60 if you have slow internet or a cap!
  • RSS refresh time: Self explanatory
  • Menu colour: The colour of all menu text's
  • RSS colour: Colour off all text in RSS part
  • XP colour: Colour of the XP text and ring in RGBa format E.G 0,0,0,255 for black (4th number is alpha 0- invisible, 255- full colour)
  • Lever colour: Colour of the level text - RGBa same as above.
  • Toggle tooltip: 1 is off 0 is on

Dark theme: (images)

This is the view of the new theme. Light theme will be coming soon as well as other theme. I am look for help for new theme designs or artists.


Xp system:

I have made a XP system to go with the skin which is based on your comments, Give away entries and giveaway wins based in this formula, *(wins 2) + (Comments + entries / 2)**. There are 11 ranks before an highly unbeatable rank f 50,000xp.


Version Check:

I have added a version check, This appears at the bottom of the menu. If your version is out of date red text will appear saying so, Just come here and the latest version will be on here ready for download.


More:

Both RSSfeed and Featured panel are separate from the main panel now, can be freely moved around saving space. They can all be toggled from the main panel just like options panel can.


Download link:

YOU NEED LATEST VERSION OF RAINMETER - Else you get errors!

To change options from the menu itself, Click your avatar. That will Toggle the options panel.
