Download Gabe's TypOmeter v2

You are free to download the latest version of Gabe's TypOmeter here , approx 2.5 MB. Please note you have to unzip the zip-file tmSetup.zip, then run the installation program tmSetup.exe.

Download the skin template in PSD format

If you want to create your own skins, you are free to download the Skin Template for Gabe's TypOmeter here. The template is in Adobe Photoshop (PSD) format, and creaed and saved using Adobe Photoshop 5.0. This is the template I have used to create all the available skins. The template is zipped, so you have to unzip it.

Download Skins for the TypOmeter

Make sure you save the downloaded skin into the ..\TypOmeter\Skins\ directory. This will normally be the "C:\Program Files\Informatics\TypOmeter\Skins\" directory. If you have not installed the TypOmeter on the default place, you have to find the ..\TypOmeter\Skins\ directory yourself.

If you download the BMP (140kb), you only need to save the skin directly into the skins-directory.
If you download the ZIP (34kb), you first have to unzip the skin (using WinZip or something similar), then save the unzipped BMP into the mentioned directory.

Immediately after you have saved your Skin to the Skin Directory, the Skin will be available in the Skin menu. (You don't need to restart or anything) Simply open the menu (right click on the TypOmeter), and you will find your new Skin in the list. The name of the Skin in the Menu is the same as the file name of the skin (without the bmp).

Available Skins:


Description: A weird 3D kind of thing, where the TypOmeter seems to be made out of concrete. If you keep the TypOmeter in the lower right corner of the screen, the lightning is correct.
