The Portal Desktop Theme by wistfulwriter The Portal Desktop Theme by wistfulwriter
ANNOUNCEMENT
I HAVE RELEASED THE PORTAL 2 DESKTOP THEME [link]

UPDATE--14 MAY 2011
I haven't released it yet, but I refreshed the theme with the aforementioned CPU/battery meter. I will release it the same time that I release my Portal 2 theme: [link]

UPDATE--5 MAY 2011
I will soon update this with a CPU/Battery meter (for the Level Progress meter).

UPDATE--5 FEB 2010
I've cleaned up the digits.png file of the level date sign. If you see little edges in the '1' digit (visible depending on the color of your background), download the cleaned version: [link]


==================

I've reworked my original Portal theme and packaged it up in an Rainmeter skin file for easy installation.

This is inspired by the test chamber signage at the beginning of every level in Portal. The level number is replaced by the date, and I've added the month and day.

Below that is a level progress bar. There are two variants. One is a week progress bar: the same way the Aperture Laboratories showed you your progress through the levels, this shows you your progress through a year! The second variant is a RAM meter bar, created by request.

To complete the whole sign, I also created my first ever Rainmeter dock! It imitates the same basic design of the test chamber sign: a 5x2 grid of simple black and white icons. They are dimmed when inactive, and turn fully black when you hover over the icon.

There are a bunch of other little extras as you can see in the preview picture.

If you have any suggestions or requests, please don't hesitate to let me know! I may have overlooked some things, so please, by all means, get in touch with me if there's something wrong.

====== TIPS ======
You can edit fonts.inc (found in the Fonts folder) and define your own font to use for most of the text. The variable is MyFont. It should change most of the fonts across the board. If it doesn't, please tell me about it. I have designed this for use with Helvetica, but many people may not have it: the only recommendation I have is to either get Helvetica CE or to tweak it yourself. If you have a free Helvetica alternative, please let me know and I will use it in future updates.

Maybe I missed this info somewhere, and I'm also new to Rainmeter, but I'm wondering how to make the icons linkable?

Does the weather actually change? Or do I have to dick around with the settings?

The weather does change, but you have to set the ZIP code. Just google Rainmeter weather config, I think you'll be able to figure it out from there.
