I've changed this a bit since the original version. The picture no longer appears in a small box to the side but appears fullscreen behind the list. List is scrollable
Normally completely hidden but when I mouseover the lefthand edge of my screen it appears. When I click on a game or take my mouse off the skin it disappears. Text changes to green when I mouseover the text and a picture representing the game appears on the right-hand side (pictures not mine, just found online). I do have a smaller version without the picture.
Edit: Nevermind, I just clicked and dragged it. D'oh.
Edit: If the Apps.inc file isn't setup to open in anything just right-click and select Open With > Notepad -or optionally Notepad++ if you have it-
Edit2: If you have less than 56 apps you can mouse over the Gameview and right-click > Edit Skin and remove any [link]'s you don't need, I recommend copying and pasting them into a notepad and saving that in case you need to add some back later. If you need more than 56 just copy one of the links and change the numbers
LeftMouseUpAction=!Execute ["#App57Path#"][!HideMeterGroup GameGroup][!Update]
MouseOverAction=[!SetOption Link57 FontColor #MouseOverColour#][!SetOption View ImageName #*App57Image*#][!Update]
MouseLeaveAction=[!SetOption Link57 FontColor #TextColour#][!SetOption View ImageName ""][!Update]
Edit3: One more thing I forgot to mention, you'll have to mouse over Gameview, right-click and click "Refresh Skin" to see any changes made.
You should also note there is a version of this out now that is a little more refined and is easier to add games to by just dropping a shortcut to it into the resources > Shortcuts file and will also auto sort anything you add alphabetically. Google Rainmeter Gameview 3 if you would prefer that, everything I just said still applies to Gameview 3 aside from the [link] parts because it is no longer required to do that manually.
Hopefully this has helped you out.
Edit: Just an idea i had, maybe if you like it you could work on it
To have multiple images for 1 game, and have them change every...5 sec? I think it would be really cool if its possible!
PS: sorry for double post but can't delete my other comment :/
***MouseScrollDownAction=[!SetOption Link1 Y ([Link1:Y]-#ScrollSpeed#)][!Update][!SetOption Link1 Y [*MeasureScroll*]][!Update]***
***MouseScrollUpAction=[!SetOption Link1 Y ([Link1:Y]+#ScrollSpeed#)][!Update][!SetOption Link1 Y [*MeasureScroll*]][!Update]***
I also set "ScrollSpeed=0" but it's still scrolling, what am I missing?
[EDIT] nevermind, I noticed this was implemented in another place and got it fixed by commenting that part. Sorry for the spam!
The picture overlay doesn't really work on that aspect ratio.. is this solvable?
App23Text="Metro Last light"
App23Image"Images\Metro Last Light.jpg"
(I've been cleaning up the games I don't actually have and never plan on playing, so my numbers are a bit different than standard).
So first of all, awesome skin, love it
But I've been reading through, and you said you would update it to be on the rightside....so have you added that yet, and if not, how do I get it to display on the right side of my second monitor?
Never mind that. Got it fixed.
Nice Skin btw. Very usefull
Would mean you could just take a screenshot whilst playing your game and the program could automatically pick the first image from that folder or something.
I don't have any experience coding skins for rainmeter but is just an idea
Also, ViciousNed, good job. Love it, by far my favourite launcher. But do you know of a way too not let the wallpaper underneath flash through when you go from hovering on one game to the next? I tried but couldn't find a way. Thanks buddy.
