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:
