Black and Red Windows 7 Theme by Dratheus Black and Red Windows 7 Theme by Dratheus
Shameless plug! Check out my Bastion Rainmeter Skin/Theme! :D [link]

Anyway....

So I decided to not only upload the Rainmeter skins, but also everything you need to make a theme like I currently have on my computer! :D How cool am I? :P

What comes in this pack:

A few different clocks. (2nd Gig is the one in the preview.)

A cool animation. (Circle thing in the top middle on that circle.)

Top and bottom bars, for visual pleasure only.

Disk Dock (The dock in the center.)

Hard Drive C and D monitors.

An app launcher.

Wi-fi status.

Network status. (up/down speed)

Power monitor. (For desktop users, it just looks cool. XD)

Processes Running.

Scan. (That thin red line scrolls and "scans" your desktop. Visual purpose only.)

Shutdown menu. (Shutdown, lock, logoff, restart, etc)

Fan monitor. (Has a system option, which is the one in the preview image and also the only one I edited. I upload the "only fan" option as well.)

System monitor. (RAM, CPU, Temp)

Weather app.

Winamp circles.

Cursors

Icons (both for the Disk Dock, and for desktop)

Wallpaper for desktop, logon screen, and a logon pic.

***

Now for some notes.

First off, that Disk Dock. You can change the paths and everything, just head into the .ini and get busy. I use it in conjunction with a Rocketdock dock and an Objectdock dock. (Yes I know I can have two Objectdocks instead, but hush.) One on top, one on the bottom, and the Disk Dock in the middle.

The icons. I may not, probably don't, have all the ones you're looking for. I simply uploaded the ones I edited. Change them at your desire. Both PNGs and ico files are included.

The launcher (right side in the middle) can be set up to launch different things of course, just go into the .ini and redirect it.

The sounds are just for my current theme, if you don't like them don't use them. If you want to use them for something else, go for it.

The fan monitor and system skins need Speedfan to work, don't worry, I'll link with the other required stuff.

Weather app needs some work unless you want the weather for my area. I'll provide a link for info on that as well.

The wallpaper and logon screen are both 1920x1080. If you want to resize, go for it! :D

EDIT: I recommend not having any icons on your desktop. Makes it a lot prettier. :P

***

WHAT YOU WILL NEED!

Rainmeter. It runs all of the skin stuff. Grab it here: [link]

Speedfan. Used to show your temp and fan speed. [link]

Help for the weather app can be found here: [link]

NOTE! I DID NOT MAKE ANY OF THIS! I ONLY EDITED WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ALREADY PUT FORWARD! IF YOU SEE SOMETHING YOU MADE AND WANT CREDIT, LET ME KNOW SO I CAN GIVE YOU IT IMMEDIATELY!!

Thanks for downloading! :) Love the original creators, they're cooler than I am. ._.

You just need to extract the folders from the rar and put the Rainmeter (so NOT the icon, mouse, or sound packs, for example) into your Rainmeter skins folder. Then it will show up when you restart Rainmeter! :) Hope this helps!

I want to use this but I can't get any of the paths to work on the shutdown skin, HD C, or launcher skin. Pretty much any paths. And I have no idea what's up with the disk dock

To install, you just need to move the proper folders (anything relating to the Rainmeter parts) to your Rainmeter folder in My Documents. (Create a new folder for the skin) Everything should then show up in Rainmeter next time you start it! (Or after refreshing all, possibly.)

Having the folders with wallpapers, sounds, cursors, etc won't /hurt/ anything, but they'll also clutter it up a bit!

Hope this helps!! :D
