MassEffect 1 sTabLauncher Skin by RickF7666 MassEffect 1 sTabLauncher Skin by RickF7666
This is another sTabLauncher [link] skin inspired by a Mass Effect Rainmeter skin created by Urulokiburning [link]

I used some of the graphic elements that Urulokiburning used in his Rainmeter Mass Effect skin.

There are a few things I wish sTabLauncher did and a few things I wish it didn't do. The biggest problem I've found being that Steam shortcut icons have a huge shortcut arrow covering much of the icon. The problem is that Steam creates the equivalent of internet shortcuts for their games. You can assign an icon for it, but when you have as many Steam games as I have that takes a while.

To get sTabLauncher to look like this you will have to adjust things with the tabs and icons in the program. The upside is when you are done it looks way cool.

Edit: As per ~Gin416 suggestion I have uploaded a new version of the Zip file to include the exported config file. I've stripped all the icon information out of it so it should just be all the information about the Tabs themselves. To import this file you need to go to Options, General tab and choose Import. Hopefully this works better.

Really?  All you have to do is right click on an open spot to get the menu and the top entry says "Options".

Hi, I love the idea of this, I have been looking for something like this for like forever.
But it has only one problem where I can't find a solution to.
If I open my browser or any kind of program for that matter, the tabs stay there on top of the screen. Is there a way to only make those tabs visible when I am on my desktop?

Yes, there are a lot of settings if you right click and choose Options.

I can't find any option that allows me to make it completely invisible when not on my desktop. What option are you referring to?

Well no, not completely invisible.  If you did that then there would be no way to access it.  But there are options for it to be in the background or even slide up off the screen with only the tabs showing.  Specifically, under the Advanced heading there is a check box that says "Always on top" which you can uncheck and a "Stay on top of Fullscreen windows" that can also be unchecked.  On top of that there is an option called "Hide sTabLauncher completely when docked".  So it seems to me there are plenty of ways to customize its behavior.

Really wanted to enjoy this. The exported file you have provided does not work at all, for me atleast. I imported into this launcher and none of the icons that are provided in your download work. Unfortuneately, without this launcher bar at the top; your awesome rainmeter desktop isn't going to work for me.

No idea if your original format worked for people; but as of now, it is not working. Maybe it's me, idk. Sorry to sound crass, But whenever I import your download, it acts incredibly funky inside the program.

I'm not really sure what you are doing get sTabLauncher to look the way I made it, but the zip file has several png graphics files which go into the sTabLauncher/Skins folder and then you choose them in the program. As for the xml file, you don't really need that. I provided it as an easy way to get the colors I've used, but if it isn't working for you then don't use it and just select the color manually. As for all my game icons you have to add them from the games you have install on your PC. The icons themselves are not part of sTabLauncher, you have to drag and drop them into the various tabs. I would really recommend reading the instructions for sTabLauncher which covers most of what I have just said and a lot more.

Thanks for the reply man.I was having trouble getting the mass effect skins to actually apply within sTablauncher. Thanks again. Now it's time to figure out the RSS feed off of your main mod, nothing shows :(
