I still think this is probably the most inventive thing you've made yet!  Would you be willing to offer a version with a darker color scheme?  Something more in line with the start screen colors?

There is no need for this. You can adjust the color of everything visible on the desktop. Simply rightclick on the item, go to the advanced tab, and choose whatever color you want to have. It is really easy.:)

Looks really cool:D Is this like a program that's constantly running or how does it work? Also, would this be close to a Windows 8 experience?
Reply
:iconpeterrollar:
PeterRollar Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes it is a prog that's constantly running. It needs 10-15mb RAM, which isn't much for nowadays computers. It is Avedesk, something similar to Rainmeter or Samurize. This cannot give you a close Win8 experience. Better download a free trial of Win8.
Thanx for your nice comment. Have a nice weekend.:)

Thank you for your very kind words Yacine.:) As you can see, the interest in this kind of stuff is very low. Maybe the time for this "old school" customization is over. Anyways, i learned a lot while making it, and i use it myself every day. Better than nothing.:D
I like the weather app too. Only i should make the fonts a little bit less bold. What do you mean?
Have a great weekend my friend:handshake:

Don't worry too much about the interest ,ponies and what they call "nude art" gets millions of views while some great pieces of art remain unnoticed  ,the most important is the satisfaction you have after making an idea come true :D
You're right about the weather app :D It will look better with a thinner font
Have a great weekend too my friend :hug:

I guess you are right.:handshake: And honestly, i think a lot of this "nude art" is simply porn. Don't wanna challenge this stuff.

That's Good... but I uploaded the very initial preview of my own suite months ago and I am working on it so hard. Had this idea in my mind for myself. and it makes my work over done :( .
If you don't mind, is that a coincidence? :\ (mine is a Rainmeter Skin)

I have no clue what you wanna tell me. This is nothing else than a variation of thispeterrollar.deviantart.com/art… which is more than two years old.

But I have some 'Fehler' here... It says: gid.effectlet(29) error 8002801d:

What is it? What went wrong? Kannst Du mir helfen, bitte :cry:

This means that one of the desklets failed to load while starting Avedesk. There are 130 desklets in this deviation. It is not possible to identify which one it is. You should restart Avedesk to see if the error returns.
Thanx for looking and commenting.:highfive:
