Rainmeter Steam Pack v1.6 by Sooner266 Rainmeter Steam Pack v1.6 by Sooner266
I have released the XWidget version of this skin: [link]
The capability of the XWidget version is lightyears ahead of the Rainmeter version, so check it out! From now on I will only be working on the XWidget version.

I am in the process of porting this skin to Xwidget, so check back in the coming weeks for that. I finally figured out how to get it all working, just have to finish it, and I can say it's going to be awesome. I'll post the link to the new version here when it's done.

I present to you v1.6 (beta) of my rainmeter Steam Pack. It has been totally rewired, allowing you to choose your region, and several other parameters detailed in the skins. All parameters are adjustable using the variables section inside the skin ini file.

I have not done extensive testing, so please report any bugs you encounter. I do know that they work and you can select your region fine.

Steam Headlines:
Brings the latest headlines straight from the Steam headline page to your desktop. Know at a glance if there is a client update or steam blog, plus much more. Different categories of headlines can be color coded.

Active links:
Skin title > News page in Steam

Steam Specials:
Lists all currently running Steam specials so you can get the jump on the best deals. Displays the current price and its sale savings. Data provided by

Active Links:
Skin title > Default browser with unique store page listing all specials
Game title > Store page in Steam (broken, will fix shortly)
Game price > Google search for game title

Steam Price Tracker:
Notifies you of all the recent price changes of all steam games. Know instantly when that game you've been waiting for has dropped in price. Data provided by

Active links:
Game title > store page in Steam.
Price > Google search for the game title.
Skin title > main page.

Included are three versions of each skin:

Flexible: Simple and super flexible. Basically every aspect of the sizing and arrangement of the skin is customizable from the variables section. The text will move to fit most of the changes you make. Options include number of items (Max 14), skin width and height, space between items, border size, and many more.

Illustro 12 and 8: Themed to illustro by poiru. All the same info to match this awesome suite. Two sizes to give you the option of how much screen room to use. Background images were adapted from his theme and used with permission.

All skins have tooltips containing various additional info about the game on mouseover.

Any feedback, good or bad, is welcomed.

Really like this one, is there any way to hide DLC and only display games?

I really like what you're creating here! Could you possibly add a skin that will display friends online and what they're playing, etc.? It would be a little insecure to have your steam login info saved to a skin configuration, but I'm the only one on this computer and would really like this function. Thanks again for your hard work!

There's a stream friends app for Rainmeter already ([link]), but it only shows your friends who are online and play a steam game.
It would be more than just awesome if there was anyone who has an idea how to make it work like the friends list itself (meaning: clicking on the names opening a chat window or something).

As to this steam pack: Very well done, good job!

Duh, Steam Specials sometimes stop working, meaned not filling to tab, just intalled it, used it for 30 min, and than it stopped updating, thou other bars working fine, tested with 2 different connections(my work lan and mobile internet with tethering)
Good skin, very usefull for me, so i'll just hope its steam rss lags

What do you mean, not filling to tab? Like not filling all the lines, or not fitting horizontally correctly?
My specials skin has been working fine. It's the price tracker that isn't filling all the lines, thanks to the RSS feed, which isn't from official steam by the way.

Hm, I've never thought about it. Let me check into what would be needed for that.
