Borderlands 2 Rainmeter Skin by szkieletor73 Borderlands 2 Rainmeter Skin by szkieletor73
I wanted a Borderlands 2 Rainmeter Skin, I've found two, but they both used BL1 HUD design. So I went ahead and modified :iconcalvis101:'s edit of :iconssratt:'s skin to use graphics from BL2. Textures of CPU and HDD meters are copy-pasted from an in-game screenshot, the rest was made by me in Inkscape with screenshot as reference. App icons are made with GIMP.

I optimised it for my machine, so it may not work for you at first. You'll most probably have to modify the files yourself.
Basic knowledge of Rainmeter code is required, but nothing fancy. Have fun.

Updated to use buttons for Media Control. They come in two variants, one of which uses a fade effect which can be quite buggy, as in it may make the buttons disappear when skin is refreshed while no music is playing. Second variant is more stable but doesn't use fade effect, instead switching to reduced alpha instantly when no music is playing.

Thanks! I don't use Winamp but still like how it looks. You're awesome. Here's my desktop if you want a look:
Also, is it OK if I post it on Reddit and link to you? Thanks!

the fact it has World of Tanks as an icon makes me giddy. 

also, is their a BL2 icon?
szkieletor73 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2013
Nope, I didn't make a BL2 icon since I don't usually put applauncher shortcuts to my Steam games. I can make a bunch of icons in that style for use with the skin next week, since I'll be away from home for the weekend. Or you can just make your own in GIMP, it's quite easy.

May I ask how make the buttons with GIMP? I've been using it for quite a while but I don't know how to do that.

How I did it, was I took a regular icon, used GIMPS color tools to change colorisation to match the default "folder" icon (or grabbed the color straight from it and recolored the icon manually), then duplicated the layer, put the copy on bottom and add blur to it.

Here's a crappy image tutorial:

As for your other comment, I already posted it to Reddit when I created the skin, but if you don't think people will mind, feel free to post it whenever you want, just don't claim it's yours, as always.
