Screen Drag Game Launcher 1.0 by closer2thelung Screen Drag Game Launcher 1.0 by closer2thelung
PLEASE NOTE: this was my first ever attempt at coding in rainmeter. I no longer support it and recommend looking elsewhere for something with more customization options. I shamelessly recommend my Arc Menu Launcher Suite which has a built in Games menu.
Here is my first ever Rainmeter skin. I made it just for myself but I figured some people might want it.

It is a multi page game launcher that automatically organizes your game collection and puts it in the skin alphabetically. The STEAM tile changes to each game's wallpaper when you hover over each icon (Preview)
Currently it allows for up to 10 pages of games (200 games).
Edit the uservariables.inc in the "Common" folder to adjust the number of pages you want to have.
You can customize almost everything except the number of rows and columns per page. That's just too much coding for me.

There are a few steps to get the skin working correctly. I left in one icon, wallpaper and shortcut as an example. You simply have to get an icon image and wallpaper  *(I prefer steam's official grid image--easy instructions for that at the bottom)* for the game you wish to add and name them both the same. Then create a shortcut to your game and name that the same as well. The icon must go in the skins "Icons" folder, the wallpaper in the "Wallpapers" folder, and the shortcut in the "Shortcuts" folder. Then refresh the skin and you are done.
**The shortcut I left in as an example should open Notepad**

**I left the spot beside the steam tile empty for my rss reader panel.

You can change the background wallpaper in the "Background Image" folder.

I used nokari's lBlack Sheep Wallpaper

*IMPORTANT*
you must edit the PC NAME in uservariables.inc  in order for the steam tile to work. Before you do this, the steam tile will not show the game's wallpapers.

might be because of my screen resolution which is 1366x768, and it cant fit the ends on.
is it possible if u can upload another version with less tiles on a page, Just remove those tiles and it will be good,

Does this require steam?
