I need matching monitors. I should have had matching monitors but eBuyer (and Chrome) messed up. Ordered another one, half way through the purchase, my browser crashed. The payment went through but the order didn't, it took a week for the payment to drop off from pending and to be put back into my bank account. I'm yet to get around to purchasing another monitor.
It's one of those 'let's put shit on the pokemon sapphire intro landscape' :ok:

The characters remind me of MapleStory
[QUOTE=Fat White Lump;48352466]I hope Catalyst is a wallpaper generator too.

Hi, welcome to the desktop thread, etc etc
Figure I should mention that the "less is more" mentality is popular here, though as far as busier desktops go that is one of the better put together ones
there is so much heresy in that

and im not even trying to be funny with this post thats literally what it is
do you guys know of any good resources with high quality wallpapers? I find wallhaven for example has too much junk so it takes ages to find something I'm happy with. I'd love a more quality controlled source that is roughly on par with the quality of the stock Nexus wallpapers
Based off of Lifehacker's featured [url=http://lifehacker.com/the-umbral-desktop-1744516553]Umbral[/url] desktop, but with some modifications of my own.
What is that visualizer thing you have? That's pretty cool.
So is desktop customization dead on Windows? I know Microsoft keeps making it harder with each version but the community seems pretty much dead. Like once in a great while there's a good VS or iconpack but that stuff was super common a few months after Windows 7 came out and even bigger with XP and Vista.
Do I just not know where to look? Deviantart used to be great but even the section Windows desktop screenshots is just FnaF shit.
My desktop has basically looked like this since 10 came out.

Might as well put out everything I have;
[B]Backgrounds[/B] are a select few from [url=http://slurpaza.deviantart.com/]Slurpaza[/url] on a 30 minute rotation. [url=https://www.dropbox.com/s/va6mgg51vef1v1g/Wallpapers.zip?dl=0]Here's the download to the ones I use[/url]. They're 1920x1080 at a minimum; some are higher because not all of them came in that resolution. They scale fine, though.
[B]The tool used[/B] to add the elements is [url=https://www.rainmeter.net/]Rainmeter[/url]. I use the Beta 3.3 release; it's perfectly stable.
[B]Visualizer[/B] is the [URL="http://marcopixel.deviantart.com/art/Monstercat-Visualizer-for-Rainmeter-1-3-486330771"]Monstercat Visualizer for Spotify[/URL], but it visualizes everything, not just Spotify. I have the visualizer set at 80% transparency. To make it fit like mine did on a 1920x1080 monitor, you need to modify the variables a bit; once you install it, right click the visualizer and click [I]Open Settings[/I], or go to the [I]variables.ini[/I] in the install. Replace it with [url=http://pastebin.com/iiNH7Vdb]this[/url]. This'll change the bar count and other values to be perfect.
[B]The song text[/B] is from [url=http://redsaph.deviantart.com/art/Cleartext-for-Rainmeter-v2-6-1-17-Sep-2015-519796161]Cleartext[/url]. To make it like I did (no marquee scrolling), you need to edit a file. Go to [I]C:\Users\[name]\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Cleartext[/I] and edit [I]Cleartext Spotify.ini[/I] and replace it with [url=http://pastebin.com/gYmti0gL]this[/url]. If you want to see how I did it exactly so that you can modify [I]Cleartext Music.ini[/I] and use that instead, just do a diff on my text and the default text, you'll see what I did. I didn't bother to try getting rid of the display on the left of the song and artist name; it would require too much editing. I just turned off [I]Keep on Desktop[/I] for the element in Rainmeter, and moved that off the screen. There's a "conflict" with this and the visualizer, though; if you don't fix it, the text will sometimes appear behind the visualizer. Just set the load order for the visualizer to 1 and Cleartext to 2; that should fix it. Restart Rainmeter after you do that. To get the size I have for Cleartext, change the size in the settings page it makes appear; change the value after 1920x to 0.23. And last thing to note; sometimes the music title doesn't appear properly with the Spotify display, and it just stays at Fetching... I've notified the author.
The rest of the elements are from the Umbral Desktop post I linked to. I personally don't use the music controls from [I]Flat and Blurry[/I] since it doesn't support Spotify, but if you don't use Spotify, there you go. Else it may be in your interest to move the [I]Cleartext[/I] element over a bit so you can access those controls.
