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…

cleaner graphics

and fixed what stopped it being installable on xp

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

ok heres a link to a quick video showing the menu in action…

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 thisžion=&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 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 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.

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
