Artist's Note

New options skin added! Now you can easily edit launcher names, paths and icons without having to delve into the config.inc file

I proudly present S.H.I.E.L.D OS
The design of the skin is taken directly from the computers on the Helicarrier in The Avengers. I got all of my reference material from the actual designer of the UI for the movie, Jayse Hansen.

The package itself contains most of the typical skins you'd expect:

Clock - Intricate clock design as well as the actual number version for clear understanding
Program Launchers - 6 small and 6 big launchers for opening programs/folders etc...
Web Launchers - 6 text based launchers for opening webpages
CPU Monitor - Support for 1-4 Cores. The monitor is designed to be more visually appealing then functional so accuracy of the actual levels is off. I plan on fixing this in the next update
Ram Monitor - Shows Ram used percentage
HDD Monitor - The outer ring on the clock skin displaying your HDD used space
Date - Date, month and day
Music Player - Can open your music player directly from the skin. Playback buttons, progress, player volume control and album artwork all incorporated
Shutdown Buttons - Buttons to shutdown, restart and log off
Recycling Bin - Opens the recycling bin. Also shows a current deleted item count
Volume Control - Adjust the system volume
Options menu - Easily edit launcher names, paths and icons

Make sure you have the latest version of Rainmeter!

For a list of supported music players and their respective codes check the NowPlaying plugin page on the Rainmeter manual

Update 1.2.5 =============
Added an options skin to allow easy editing of launcher, folders, webpage and general variables. Minor adjustments to the Music Player skin including adding the time elapsed of the current song. Border skin now available in 1920x1200

Update 1.2.0 =============
Changed the Volume skin design to something better looking. Added a Recycling bin that can have its orientation changed so that it can fit onto most of the other skins.
Colours Added. Simply middle mouse click on any skin to cycle it between Orange, Blue and Red

Update 1.1.1 =============
Added a 12 Hour version of the clock as well as a border in 1680x1050 due to popular demand. You can now skip through songs by simply clicking along the progress bar of the music player skin

Update 1.1.0 =============
Major visual changes have been made to the border in all sizes as well as minor colour and transparency tweaks to all launchers, the clock and music player buttons. Just trying to get the whole thing as close to the original UI from the movie as possible

Update 1.0.1 =============
The border skin is now available in 1366x768, 1600x900 and 1920x1080

The credit for the adobe icons provided for use with the small launchers goes to nokari

Very nice, love everything about it. Can we get a link to the icons that you used for the large launcher? I love the icon set it matches with it perfectly but I do not use some of those programs and would like to switch it out for other things like firefox. Keep up the good work.

The icons were custom made sorry. There are icon packs out there that are of the same style however

Ah well these are almost as good :p. But thanks for posting a link to them, couldn't find one with the same style that had most of what I needed.

Thank you.

Love this skin!

I was wondering, is it possible to change the location of the links on the 'clock' skin? I'd like to change where the "email" link links to.

Daelnz says:

You can change all the names/paths/icons of every launcher within the config.inc file. This can be found in [username]/documents/Rainmeter/skins/Ave

this Skin brought me to use rainmeter. Awesome work!

I have a question though: I changed the Music Player in the config to use Winamp instead of itunes. I Click on play and it will open fine, but it won´t show anything in the Music Player at all. Is there anything i need to configure so the Player will work correctly with WinAmp?

Thanks in advance,

Daelnz says:

I just tested it with Winamp and it's working perfectly fine for me. Only issue I found is you have to start a song playing in Winamp first before you can then use the skin for control.
Ensure you have the most recent versions of Rainmeter and Winamp and that the player is set to "Winamp" in the config.

Help.. When I try to install this skin I keep getting this error message:
"Invalid settings file in:
What do I do???

Tue, Jun 26th at 11:44pm (5 years ago)
Daelnz says:

I honesty have no idea where this error is coming from. The only advice I can give you is to make sure you have the latest version of Rainmeter

umm sorry for the noobish comment but the music player isn't working for me lol i need help :P

Daelnz says:

You're probably using a music player asides form itunes I assume. Use this page:
to check if your music player is supported, and if so find its PlayerName. Then change the player to that name in the config file

There doesn't seem to be any option in the config to edit the HDD meter, as stated in the time.ini

Great work! I've had a blast installing this and tweaking some of the icons for my own software.

Thank you!

hey nice work! Im loving it!
One question. I know it's already been asked by someone else but there is no link for me.
How can I change the icons on the large launcher? I know that they are custom made but how do I change them and where can I find similar ones?

So I was able to add six more clickable icons to the Small launchers section, but I can't add the ability to the options menu to configure them, how do I add them to edit in the configuration Option section?

I can't seem to change the filepaths for the large and small launchers, or the folders, in the Options menu. Is there a potential fix for this?

Impressive mastery of creating a beautiful and complete user interface experience.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I am guessing creating user interfaces is more than just a hobby for you...

And thank you very much for sharing, sir!
