GameBanners for Rainmeter by risemix GameBanners for Rainmeter by risemix
UPDATE: I have fixed bugs with the Minecraft, Deus Ex, and League of Legends Banners. Please download again!

UPDATE 2: ...and a bug with the JC2 banner. Fuck me. lol

I'm a guy who loves to display my games and so forth, but with the advent of digital gaming and distribution, I don't have boxes laying around that I can display. For some time I've been looking for something that allows me to display my games on my desktop in a way reminiscent of boxes on a shelf... or say, like the DDR interface, but never found anything satisfactory. So, I improvised and did it myself.

GameBanners is a collection of simple Rainmeter buttons created in Rainpad. The banners themselves are a combination of resources found around the internet put together in Photoshop.


This was created for personal use, so I don't intend to supply a lot of support. Nonetheness, if you need any help feel free to ask here and I'll see what I can do.

Steam games in this list are set up as Steam links. Non-steam games like Guild Wars 2 link to their respective folder paths. If you would like to link to a non-Steam game through Steam, follow these instructions:

1. In your steam library, right click the game and click "Create Desktop Shortcut."
2. On the desktop, find the shortcut. Right click it and select "Properties."
3. Under "URL," copy the entire line starting with "steam://" and ending in a series of numbers, which is the game's ID.
4. Right click the GameBanner you wish to change, and find the following line:
LeftMouseUpAction = !Execute ["URL HERE"]
5. Replace the "URL HERE" text with the URL you copied from the game shortcut's properties window between the quotes. Save, and exit Notepad.
6. Right click the Rainmeter skin, and click "Refresh skin."
7. You're done! You're also free to delete the desktop shortcut you created, if you'd like.

If you would like to create your own banners using this style, you may use the PSD file here: [link]

You should say what you did with the downloaded file, might be wrong image path.

I am totally new to Rainmeter, and I can't understand how to make it show up on my desktop.. I've downloaded and installed it, and edited the paths to the files, but the actual buttons won't show up on my desktop. Am I completely retarded or am I missing something?

right click the banner and click edit. the notepad should come up. there you can see the guts of the banner. where it says image name is the photo that shows.  the image you want to change it to must be in the same folder as the notepad's .ini folder. I personally like to make a new folder under the gamebanner's folder and copy and paste a .ini from another banner. there i change the picture name and steam id.

I did exactly what you said and tried to create a banner for Papers, Please. It doesn't work. I did the exact steps and created a new folder, but it doesn't show up.
