SWORD ART ONLINE GUI  1.4 by My-Freedom-In-Art SWORD ART ONLINE GUI  1.4 by My-Freedom-In-Art
[Version: 1.4]

[Details: Newest version 1.4]

if you like my work please click the link below to donate via paypal


Note: File is now updated as of 23/01/2014 to support rainmeter 3.0 as a minumum and win xp as a minimum,
awesome new font from sao added, font was made by darkblackswords, you can see his channel here darkblackswords.deviantart.com…

cleaner graphics

and fixed what stopped it being installable on xp


Updates
improved CPU usage, version 1.3 fixes an issue that caused the skin to use too much CPU resources.

the messages tab has been changed to an rss feed suitable for feeds like fbook rss.

an automatic update notifier has been added (thanks to the help from jsmorley at the rainmeter forums), so in future when an update is released, the skin will automatically alert you to the update.


Anyone wanting the wallpaper see this link fav.me/d5cxc8o

ok heres a link to a quick video showing the menu in action www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXBPUW…


ok unlike other menus for sao, this has a tinted screen in the background, thats so if u set the skin to stay topmost, if you dont like it, go into settings and theres an option to turn it off, same with the battery screen,

id like to thank jsmorley from the rainmeter forums for helping me with the update notifier feature present in versions 1.3 and up.

id like to thank mainly nova-7-Sev-dd who made this browse.deviantart.com/?qh=žion=&global=1&q=ios+sev#/d5ijane had i never seen this i would never have tried making my own skin, thus no cool sao skin haha,

id like to thank hekmatyar.deviantart.com/ for the cool battery skin, i just made the graphics larger, and fine tuned some of the code so that it worked with the skin and appeared and dissapeared right (not leaving half the bar visible at times)

id like to thank onedraco13 , he helped with some of the graphics and thanks to him i finally found out how to make buttons look like they glow with my editor, he also made the original notes.ini file for one notepad, i learned how that worked,, incorporated it, tweaked and added extra notes for the friends menu to it.

the rss feed was based from this fav.me/d1u5ntu stripped down of the original graphics, code i didnt need removed and tweaked to fit the SAO skin.

ok i think thats it, if i forgot to thank anyone, let me know and i'll add you here.

thank you,  you can download rainmeter a program that will let you use this skin on your desktop or laptop,  its even better if you use a touch screen laptop with windows 7 or 8.1,

Sorry I'm kinda new at this as I just downloaded Rainmeter today and this is the first thing that I downloaded. Just a question though... what does this skin actually do?

Sorry if this seems like a really obvious question :P

its no problem, welcome to rainmeter,  this skin is based of the menu seen in the sword art online anime,  its designed mainly as a shortcuts menu for launching folders, websites and programs,   it also has some note taking features and a basic rss feed in the map section.  when u load the skin, onscreen you should see a tiny button somewhere, clicking it will open the menu, clicking again will close it,  click the main button with the gear on it and select options,  this will open the settings file in your default note editor, in here is the parts where u type the websites, directories or programs you want the menu to handle,  instructions are placed before each section to help people out,   

note: in the event you dont see the small button onscreen it may be  a case its outside your screen boundaries,  to fix this go into your documents folder and find the rainmeter folder,  in it should be your skins,  find the sword art skin (sao) ope in and search inside for the settings.ini file,  open it with your text editor and find the settings regarding placing the launch button on the screen,  just edit the x and y location to get it back on screen.

note2: after every change to the settings file save it and then refresh the rainmeter skin (right click on it and select refresh skin

ok ive updated to your beta and repackaged the skin,  its working fine,  ive reuploaded the file here if u want to download it,   after rainmeter installs the skin you should see a small sao button in the bottom left corner,  if u dont see this find the settings.ini file in the skins folder and follow its instructions on how to reposition the button,  currently its positioned best for laptop screens that are 15in,  if ur screen differs the button may appear outside your screen bounds,  its just a case of resetting it to appear inside the bounds

im currently on rainmeter version 2.5.0 r1842 64 - bit ,    ill update and test the skin again,  one way i remember to get incompatible skins to work is change the extension to .zip and extract it to the skins folder.

Is there a way to add new tabs ourself? For example, if I wanted to have a 4th category under Equipment, could I do that?
Reply
:iconmy-freedom-in-art:
My-Freedom-In-Art Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013  Student
its not impossible to do,   it doesnt match up with whats in the anime but it can be done only issue is you will have to code it meaning you will have to code how it animates and rotates and locks out along with all the other tabs.   this was the first code based art i ever did so the code is rather messy and near undecipherable  (at the time i just wanted it to work).   u edit the .ini files to make those kind of changes,

I just saw this, downloaded and installed straight away.

This is excellent! I hate how my desktop looks empty but this turns it around beautifully! The only thing I have to comment is the icons they just look a little pixelated, looking forward for an update should you do any!

One question though, in the demo video the button to open the menu is placed in the bottom-left of the desktop but for some reason I can't seem to drag my button to that area. My button is stuck close around the top-half of the screen and I can only drag it left and right. Is there any way to change that? Please excuse me if this question has already been asked :)

Other than that. I :heart: it!

Hi thank you so much for your comment, I'm glad u like it and your feedback is much appreciated, in regards to pixelated graphics i apologise , this was my first time making full graphics on a pc, so they weren't optimal, I made them on a laptop monitor, so any large monitors may see pixelation, I am unable to make any better graphics with the tools I have so far, Umm in regards to changing the position of the open close button, it isn't draggable, to change it u need to adjust the skins settings.ini file, it's easy and I've left clear instruction in the file, open your docs folder, u will have a rainmeter folder, open it, then open the sword art folderinside resources u find settings.ini, open it in notepad or proffered notepad++ , there are instructions above each setting letting u adjust certain features such as button appearance, it's position on-screen and the dark out colour in the background, I think if I remember right the skin itself has a settings menu, click the gear button and it's called settings or options, clicking it should open the settings file,

Donations are appreciated so I can continue my art projects but u don't have to donate for the skin to work,   install rainmeter from their website and then download this skin and install it,   download button is on the right hand side of the screen,   this should work for Mac,

It is saying i need Rainmeter 2.5 or higher but i just downloaded Rainmeter 2.5 Final (r1842): today at like 12:30 AM. Did you change it so it works on version 3, the beta?

thats strange no, i havent changed a thing, i dont make skins for beta releases, i only update skins to the latest rainmeter when its out of beta, what version of windows do u have?? also i remember another commenter saying he/she could unzip the rmskin file using winrar or zipeg and copy the unzipped folder to the rainmeter skin folder, manually installing it,

Hey, I have the latest version of Rainmeter, which is v3. Yet it still notifies me to have at least v2.5 or higher.
Please fix that.
