The Steam Wheel by UltraBE The Steam Wheel by UltraBE
This skin helps you make some room on your desktop. If you're a Valve-fan, like I am, you probably know that all those icons can take quite a bit of space on your desktop. Or, if you want to be able to access your games quicker than trough the Steam 'My Games' tab, the Wheel can also help you.

It's basically a big Steam button, sitting on your desktop. When you click it, the Wheel opens, and you can choose your game. If you click on an icon, Steam will run it. It will just launch your game, even when Steam isn't launched yet. If you don't own the selected game, Steam will open its Store page, so you can buy it! Easy, huh? When you right-click a button, the game's folder will be opened. Right-clicking the 'Launch Steam' button will open the steamapps folder.

You can use custom icons and Styles to customize the Wheel to your demands, which allow you to make it much more than a Wheel with links to Steam games; use it to launch your applications, favourite websites or important folders.

This Rainmeter skin also features a Styles system, that can be used to change the look of your Wheel, independent of your custom icons.

Please read the ReadMe file before using.

If you need some custom Styles, you can make your own, or take a look at this topic on the WeGame Forums: [link]

This skin contains edits of Vaksa's Valve World icon pack: [link]


Current version is 1.06. Please update if you have an older version.

Don't forget to check for updates, as I often release new versions of my skins once in a while.

A decent idea, but far too basic. No customization and not enough icons. Does anyone even have any of these? Or play them? HL2: Episode One
HL2: Episode Two
HL2: Episode Three (currently HL2: Lost Coast)
Portal
Day of Defeat: Source


I'd love a new one.  I'd say.. CSGO. Payday 2. Titanfall perhaps (or an Origin link.)

Hey man, I downloaded one of your later versions, I think? (Got it from here: customize.org/rainmeter/skins/… ) and in the steam wheel, you've added some links to some random site, and when I change the text in the .ini file it's supposed to change, but it doesn't. It keeps directing me to some weird sites even though I've changed the text and saved the .ini file and restarted rainmeter several times. Have you got any help?

Look up 7zip. It's a free program that can open .zip files, .rar files, and .7z files.

when i click on a button that i replaced the action from halflife to open battlefield 3, or for tat matter any button, it makes that ding sound, very annoying to me, any help?

and for any one that wants to have the wheel to go away after you click any button just put this:

ButtonCommand=!Execute #ToggleWheel#

at the bottom of the Icon1Img= From what i can tell it does nothing but close the wheel when you click on it and does not effect the real action you are trying to do

Now if only you could automate putting in icons and links we'd be golden. : P
Wish there were more non-Valve game icons out there.

Okay, so I downloaded it and all, but I can't use it as this version is 1.06 and the version of Rainmeter that is avaible is 2.1 (or 2.2 in Beta) What now? I just want to use this but in this state, its impossible.
Still, good work on it.

SO COOL! But, sadly, I don't play much games on my computer. Do you think you could make this so that you can have other things on the wheel, not just games! And, if this isn't asking too much, be able to modify what's in the wheel!

As I said in the description, you can launch about anything with it, even folders and URL's. You'll have to make your own icons though, although it isn't too hard. Take a look in the skin's 'icons' folder, and check out the ReadMe, it includes a small tutorial on how to customize the Wheel with custom icons ('4. Custom Icons';).

Also, you can make the Wheel look like you want using Styles that change the skin's overall look. You can make your own Style or check out my own Steam Wheel Styles: [link] Place 'em in the styles folder, then set it up in the Steam Wheel.INI file. This is also explained in the ReadMe file ('3. Styles';).

Have fun modding the Steam Wheel! :)
Let me know if you have any issues/questions.
