Steam Launcher!

Post by FlorianG »

Hi,

i have made a Steam launcher for Rainmeter. At the moment you can show up 107 games. Use your mousewheel to toggle the different sides. 36 games per side. You can start a game by clicking on it picture.

It also shows your SteamAvatar and SteamName.

You have to edit the 1.ini file [Variables] Change "YourSteamID" into your ID

http://steamcommunity.com/id/YourSteamID/games?xml=1

Steam-Launcher_1.0-ALPHA.rar


The code is very confused because i was testing. This is only a ALPHA Release.

Things i have to Do:

1. Language Settings
2. Code optimize
3. make a minimized version
4. and a fullscreen
5. get a million dollar!

if you have any tips to make this more optimized. give it to me :)

Not everybody who lurks here and downloads stuff has created an account on the forums. In fact the vast majority never do. Nothing wrong with that.

I don't use Steam so I have no opinion on what you have done, I just wanted to explain why it might be possible for the attachment to be downloaded a bunch of times without anyone commenting.

This is a very nice skin. I have 300+ games on steam so something like this limits my options when looking for games. But if you can allow up to 500 games in total I'm sure it would be a step in the right direction. The best thing you could do would be to allow for a chat system as well, but I digress. :)

Hi Florian,

the Launcher is the right tool, what Im searching for, tx a lot. But I need a little bit help because of the SteamID string. Will I place the ID-Number with or witout the hashs? Or what I to do right to get my games?
With URL=http://steamcommunity.com/id/STEAM_0:0:2xxxxxx/games?xml=1 I get only blank fields.
