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!

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 :)
Looks like a nice update! Good job!
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.

Hi Guys, thanks for all the feedback i have received so far :D and this is what i propose to do...

I currently have been creating a new Steam Rainmeter Skin which should be available in around a week or so :)

I am currently going to work on Xbox Friend Tracker v1.20 which will include two variants to the skin: A 10 GamerTag version with mouseover information (What they are doing) and a 5 GamerTag version with mouseover information. Hopefully this will improve the skin and make it more satisfactory :D

Thanks again guys,

Awesome, it works well and looks nice. I too would like to see a 10 Gamer tag version, while keeping it at around the same size or smaller. Maybe this could be achieved by getting rid of the space used by showing the friend's status by only showing what they are doing when you mouseover their name. Just an idea, i have little understanding of how these things work. Thank you for developing such awesome content.
