Medieval Letter by tibinthomas22 Medieval Letter by tibinthomas22
I was inspired by the news paper skin and thought of creating a skin similar to that one.

Information:
1) Weather code has to be entered at two places, one for the weather and another one to display the location.
2) The media player skin I have created 2 versions, one just displays now playing and another one contains all the media player options.
3) I have created 1 day and 2 days weather skins.
4) If you mouse over the month on the calender, notes should pop up. But Please remember to change the path of the notes file.

Wallpaper:
I kind of created this wallpaper, with materials from DA and outside sources. In DA the credits go to,
Thanks to rarayn for Eagle of the holy roman empire [link]
Thanks to GTD-Orion for Fantasy europe map [link]
Thanks to kndyyoda Gryffindor wax seal by [link]
Thanks to scanned-stock Ring by [link]
Thanks to TLMedia Old paper by [link]
Thanks to Sed-rah-Stock Wood Pattern [link]

I have created this theme for 1280 x 800 resolution. But i have added some more resolution i knew. If there are any other resolution, please tell me i will more than happy to create it.

The PSD file can be found in this [link], please dont use this outside DA.

Skin:
Some of the skin are my creation, some of them I modified from the original. Here are the original creators,

Idea from newspaper skin by Tatenokai [link]
Weather by Vclouds [link]
Rss Reader by Kaelri [link]
Calendar by limpet [link]
Gmail widget by jessydior [link]

Font:
1) Main font - Knights Templar [link]
2) Signature - [link]

Please don't hesitate to comment, it will help me to improve my future skins.

Hope you all like it and have fun!!!!!!

Really a beautiful theme. Love the amount of details you put into it. You should just maybe add some shadows between the layers to add more depth.

Great work !

Holy crap, something actually unique in a Rainmeter skin that doesn't look like the same old boring boxes and crap. It's awesome! I love it <3 Keep up the great work. It's a really fun skin!

Very Nice; I actually think I may try to use it.
I love the Medieval motif and atmosphere...even though such "modern" things as weather predictions and CPU or Hard/Flash Drive space outright would never have existed on a piece of parchment...I still like this a lot. ^^

Thank you for your nice comment, yea you are right, such things still dont exists in a piece of paper. After I came back from Europe, I kind of fell in love with these medieval stuff and after playing Medieval Total war I kind of became obsessed with these things. I am glad you like it and thanks for favoring this.

Aww, you're lucky, you got to visit Europe; I got my liking of the era, from books, images, and just, something that came to me as a natural interest...but I never have been able to actually go and see the real castles or other Medieval designs and atmosphere of Europe...T,T
I really do, and I've downloaded it; now, I just have to figure out how to get it to work with some of my other skins that I use...IF I can...^^;

Okay; thank you. ^^
I'm sure you far more about the program than I do; anything I've ever edited with the couple .ini files for the small ones I use, is complete guesswork and there's much I still don't know about. I'll appreciate being able to acquire any knowledge if/when I need it. ^^

It's nice, but you should just include the fonts in the skin in the @Resources folder.

Thank you for you comment, in future I will include the fonts in resource folder.

No problem. I know how difficult it is to come up with something new and original. Especially with meters!
