After finding out that the .hack//GU theme file Sliderdock was dead and the programmer was MIA, I decided to go make my own. I went to rainmeter.net (btw, you'll need rainmeter) to get some assistance and I got just that. I got much more than I could have bargained for. A nice person from the community named Balala helped me by giving me code and I just tweaked it and modified it. I understand enough to put in icons, sounds, locations, add GUI and play with GIMP. Here it is!
The more recent versions do not require you to open the .ini to add icons. As most of you probably figured out, you will have to use the settings button. The settings window usually just appears to the top left of your screen. I hope to find a way to fix that one day!
What's New in Version 1.5.0
Released April 1
I will be making frequent updates until I feel it is set the way I want it to be. Check back once in a while to see if anything is new. No more new pages, I'll just continue to update this one.

Found an error that made the meter crash if somebody typed the address to a certain file or website manually rather than use the browse (B) button to set the action.

Nothing actually belongs to me, I was just tired of searching for something that doesn't actually exist online anymore and was tired of staring at that broken Sliderdock program that was abandoned years ago.
For those unable to get icons to show
It isn't a bug or error or any of that. What you do is you click Settings after you install the rmskin. This will open a settings window somewhere on your screen. Drag it into position so you can see it all. You will see several sections you can edit, the very last (blank spaces next to the B are clickable) space is for icons. Click any of those empty spaces, navigate to the icons folder for that rmskin (or make your own custom icons) click the desired icon, and click ok. The Icons will then show.
If you change the number of icons, they will not appear in the circle. Here is how to fix.
This is relatively easy if not just a tad tedious. For this you will right click Rainmeter, click Manage, in the left panel navigate through the folders to the slidingdock file, click it once, to the right you will see coordinates and that's what you mess with until it is re-centered. Don't forget to Check "Save Position" before exiting.
Quick rundown on Settings and what all it does.
Number of icons: You may add or subtract icons within a certain limit. Up to 16 are possible.
Radius of the circle: This either shrinks or expands the loop of icons.
Name: Name the icon
Action: This is where the address goes to the file or website you wish to open to matching icon of choice.
B: A file browsing button to manually search for and select the file of choice who's address will then show up in the Action section.
(Blank Space at the end): This is the Icon selector. It will pull up a file explorer for you to navigate to an icon folder and select one to use.
