For those of you having issues making the icons show in the bar. What i did was make a folder in my "pictures" folder for the icons. this is what you would put in the line for the picture

C:\Users\[User Name]\Pictures\GW2\skill slots\[Picture Name].png

Changing the [User Name] part to whatever your profile name is and [Picture Name] to whatever the name of the picture is. you have to use the PATH to the picture to make it work. As for making it executable you need to put the complete path to the executable in to make it work as well. what you put in should look similar to this:

["C:\Program Files\Guild Wars 2\Gw2.exe"]


If you guys have any questions on this stuff I can help. My email is Lullabymommy2013@gmail.com

When i add more icons in the ability bar and in the inventory, well they just don't work. I click on 'em, but nothing happens. The first column in the inventory bar is ok and everything runs properly, but in the second one just doesn't. Same in the ability bar. The very 1st icon works and when i try to add more it doesn't really work at all. I do all the neccessary things in config file, but alas something is wrond. Any idea ? Btw thx for this skin and thanks for the help in advance !

I have downloaded this but am wondering if you are still working on it. Will you be adding any more parts to it such as weather, news, or anything else? Where are the icons stored? I am adding the rest from Primofenax and not sure where to unzip them.

I currently don't have any plans to continue working on this as my interests have moved away from rainmeter. However, since the license is CC BY-NC-SA 3.0, you are allowed to download, add or make changes, and re-upload whatever you want!

BTW for those that have updated to 2.4.0 version of rainmeter, this skin is still fully compatible as there have been no major infrastructure changes in that version.

Awesome skin, have you considered adding in shutdown, restart, and sleep buttons?

only thing is what in the gw2 UI could be mimicked to work as that function?

The options/mail etc buttons in corner?

when I open the config for the ability bar and want to add a program fir it to execute, in this case steam, what do i enter? I already have the steam icon and name there, I just need to get it to actually execute steam when I click it. do I just put steam.exe like for chrome, and it will search for it, or do I need to put a location/destination folder? Thanks in advance

For some programs the same as chrome works, but for most programs you need to find the file path.

Steam you need to put the location/destination folder for though.

what do you mean by "put the location/destination folder" could you make a mock notepad please?

not worth making a mock code.

I mean hunt in program files for the steam.exe, copypasta the location (c/programfile/name/blah/steam.exe) and put that in place.

I'm having problems even opening this skin - I get an error message when I try open it after downloading it. Is this happening to others?

'Event assistant' is apparently the official name for the quest tracker.

Can we get spoilers on what the tracker will do? I really hope it's music monitoring & Control.

That is definitely a possibility! Thinking that for the "personal story" and then an RSS feed for world-events...

Finals are done now, but I am heading on a bit of a road-trip! Will be back in time for GW2.

I might not be able to create new graphics while I'm away (as my laptop is much too slow for that), but I should be able to work on the scripting at least. Then I'll just whip up the artwork once I get back.

Hey, I think it would be better if you reversed the RAM (stamina meter) meaning if it's almost full, you have alot of free RAM. It would make alot of sense (RAM full -> zero endurance -> can't do sh*t)

Ya, that was my original intention, but I didn't notice it until I released it. It will be changed in the next version.

I'm having issues with adding custom icons. All the ones in the icons folder work, but whenever I try ones I download (256x256, either .ico or .png format), all I get is a black background where the icon should be.

You can either use relative paths (from the .ini file) or absolute paths. I recommend using absolute paths. So if you put your icons in "C:\users\<user>\my documents\icons\" then the path would be C:\users\<user>\my documents\icons\myicon.png. I don't recommend sticking the icons in the skin folder directly as when you update, they will be moved in the rainmeter @Backup folder.

I have tried that, I even edited the currently available icons with others (changed Chrome to Firefox) but whenever I try adding my own I just get a black square.

Ok I just figured it out, I was adding "[]" and that's what was causing it.

This is amazing and easy to use. Stellar work. I think it might be making it harder to wait for GW2, though. XD

I'm afraid I'm having a problem installing the skin! It's saying it has an invalid config file. :/
Reply
:iconammorth:
Ammorth Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012
I believe that is caused by an out of data rainmeter version. Try installing the lastest version and see if that fixes it.

There is a configuration file called "inventory_config.inc". It is in the same location as the inventory.ini file. You can edit it by either clicking the down arrow in the skin (which will open the config in notepad) or right-clicking the skin and selecting the first element, which will open the folder where it is located. Instructions on how to edit the settings are in that file. Let me know if you have any issues.

Original Guild Wars 2 UI font is Cronos UI, but I'm guessing it's not available for free.

Ammorth Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012
Ya, sadly it isn't. And even if I bought it, I couldn't distribute it within rainmeter as the fonts are not distributed in a way that prevents font extraction (they not embedded). However, I am looking through some free fonts and found a couple more alternatives. I'll compare them with screenshots and pick the best one.
