    How to use the Sarif Industries Theme as your user log-on sound (Windows 7):

    1. Download the pack
    2. Open it with winrar
    3. Extract it somewhere
    4. Right-click on the speaker icon in the toolbar (next to the time)
    5. Click on Sounds
    6. In the windows that opens, navigate to Windows Logon and click it
    7. Click on Browse and open the Deus Rice folder you just extracted
    8. Click on the Deus Ex Human Revolution Sarif Industries theme.wav file
    9. Click apply

    ----------------------------------------------------

    FAQ:

    1)Why is the song name of the media controller clipped off at the top?
    -This is a problem with the .ini. (you will hear this a lot) Open the .ini for the controller and search for [MeterTitle2]. Change the Y value to -5.

    2)Why is the font not working with rainmeter?
    -Tricky one, that. It seems to be a different problem for each person, but placing Denton in front of the values Font= and Fontface= worked for me.

    3)Rocketdock is painfully slow when I mouse over an icon.
    -Go to the settings and turn off anything that even looks like an animation effect. Lower Icon quality may also help.

    4)I want X Icon.
    -There are extra icons added in the pack, as well as a photshop file with a template.

    5)I can't find my weather code for the weather skin.
    -Search for your location on weather.com. The url should then look like this: http://www.weather.com/weather/today/UKXX0085. If you were where I live, you would take UKXX0085
    and place it where required in the .ini.

    6)How do I remove the power and wifi sections of the system stats skin?
    -Open the .ini and remove all text related to them.

    Here are the settings I used if anyone wants them. Just put them in the appropriate rainmeter subfolders in your My Documents...

    Of course you'll need to change the location for the weather app and the rss feed.

    Nice. Thanks for sharing.

    Been using Rainmeter for a while but didn't know about Rocket Dock. That theme is sweet

    Apparently my computer sucks so bad, that the HR theme for Rocketdock brings my processor up to 100% Might be something else, seeing as the other themes were as slow.

    Here's how (windows 7 tutorial)

    1. Download the convenient pack
    2. Open it with winrar
    3. Extract it somewhere
    4. Right-click on the speaker icon in the toolbar (next to the time)
    5. Click on Sounds
    6. In the windows that opens, navigate to Windows Logon and click it
    7. Click on Browse and open the Deus Rice folder you just extracted
    8. Click on the Deus Ex Human Revolution Sarif Industries theme.wav file
    9. Click apply

    That's it!

    The rest I haven't done myself yet so I can't help you with that


    You can also make it play when you log onto your account and not just when starting windows!

    Don't worry and thanks for the quick answer! gonna try it right now.
    Haha, the truth is i was going to ask if this thing would work when starting Windows and not logging into my account since i dont have to, it automatically logs me :O but now i think about it hmm yes i would like to make this beautiful song play every possible second lol how can you do that too?

    Even after installing all that, there's still a lot of work to do. If you use the Denton font, you have to change a lot of settings in the .ini.

    Too bad the music isnt playing at windows startup, just the same windows sound, i even checked to make sure if it was, and there it was, so i dont really know why it wouldnt work. I was planning to put the song from the trailer, you know the one called "marketplace ambient theme" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Osb5MkpMNOo from minute 2:47 to 2:57 (I love that voice) for the Log off or windows shuting down but it isn't working .

    I set the Sarif Theme to play on log on and log off.

    It really is a nice desktop, but if you change the font for the Denton font provided in the file, it become a real charlie foxtrot. If KingNL could provide his updated .INIs that would be sooo nice .

    Cheers for this KingNL, looks Sweet. I can't get Rainmeter looking as it is in the pic. Any chance you could upload your inis?

    Also, here's a couple of icons for CPU-Z and HW Monitor if anyone needs 'em. I'll prolly do a few more over the weekend if I've time.

    Looks awesome Rindill!

    As for the .ini stuff I know there is something wrong with them but I haven't started on my own desktop yet, just the logon sound sorry

    I did have a guide on how to fix it but I can't seem to find it anywhere

  21. Incredibly amazing work. Really tempted to load it up, but I'll have to pass now. I still downloaded everything however, likely for when I break down and decide to unravel my intricately set up desktop.
    Oft we walk the edge, never afraid, always curious.

    A lovely offer, but, well, when you have Joseph Ducreux as your desktop background, you'll tend to find it difficult to switch away from him...

    Thanks for posting this, it looks pretty incredible. I'm curious as to what skin is being used for the song name and pause/play buttons. I've looked around and can't seem to find it. I realise this wasn't created by you, but I'm assuming you took the screenshot yourself. Meaning that you must have that skin

    Thanks in advance.
