Hey all,

Been working on this Rainmeter skin for a while as people said they wanted a way to show their friends online statuses.

Unfortunately Microsoft restrict who can access gamertag friend lists on the xbox without logging in (Currently Rainmeter doesn't support cookie/active login checks).

If you have any suggestions for new features/ideas i would love to hear them in the comments/message so i can make my skins better :)

Watch me to find out when new skins are released/updated.


UPDATE 27/01/2013: Updated to v1.1 with some new features in the works and many bugfixes/performance issues addressed :D Enjoy
UPDATE 10/02/2013: Updated to v1.2 with new variants that allow up to 10 GamerTags to be tracked. Small Bugfixes. :D Enjoy!

Currently isn't working. Just says gamertag not found.

Hello Failism,

After testing, this skin is no longer functional due to Microsoft pulling the plug on the URL i was extracting data from.

This causes an error, meaning the skins spits out a gamertag error.

Unfortunately as of now, i am unable to find a fix :/ But i will be looking to update it in the future if enough interest is shown.

Thanks and apologies on the funtionality,

great...working perfectly. anyway to change background colour from grey to dark red ? or any colour i want, i would like it to blend into my skin. other than that brilliant skin.Worship OMG MOAR POEMS!

Hey Jimpy,

If you wish to change the background colour, you can edit the background file to fit it into your style.

To do this, go into where your skins are stored (usually My Documents/Rainmeter/Xbox Friend Tracker/) then go into the background folder and edit that picture to show whatever you want.

Save it, then refresh the skin.

Hope this helps,

I am new to RM so didnt know how to do it but i thank you for your advice. It is still a very useful skin and it works brilliantly. I am using windows 8.1 and the latest RM. One day i hope to be able to make just as useful skins but for now i am learning the basics. thank you again for the upload and the advice :)

Doesn't work for me. I have rainmeter 2.5, it shows my friendslist, but never if someone is online. I have refreshed the skin manually and by clicking the xbox icon.
