Download and install 7 zip then you will be able to unzip RAR files (they are the same as Zip files)
ok thank you
Sorry about that Tabitha, I was out all day yesterday and didn't get a chance to check for replies.. I've always used the .rar file format, most compression programs can open multiple file formats, so I put it in a .rar without thinking to ask first.

Okay, so I have looked around a bit, and I cannot seem to find one that I was sure someone would have made. I'm looking for a Rev Counter from a car (tachometer) for an Orb. It would go great with my collection of Photo Travel from Gran Turismo 5 that I use as Wallpaper. Anyone know where to find one?

I have quite a few collected from DeviantArt though as I remember they were under some very obscure search criteria. I'd be happy to zip/rar them and pm to you (wouldn't want to redistribute where for some it may not be appropriate)?

Just found a couple of my faves;

Horse Power & RPM in cgink's Gallery

If you don't like either of these I'll send you what I have?

Those are really detailed. Very nice! I was looking for something a little more generic, and in the bmp format where there are three orbs, one for normal, hover, and click. Like the ones posted at the beginning of the thread.

This came from the old start button thread that went missing so I'm not sure who made it.

Yeah I grabbed that one. But its a boost gauge, not a tach.
