Remarks
Majora’s Clock was a proof-of-concept of how to embed a C#-Application to the Windows Desktop like a Windows 7 Gadget. It was an success in general, although there are some flaws according the transparency and the Show Desktop functionality (Win+D). Even it’s beta, the core functionality of the counter works well. The code and knowledge gained by this project may flow into a future project.

The tool is named after the heavily time-based videogame The Legend of Zelda – Majora´s Mask.

Features:

  • 2 types of countdown: date-based and interval-based
  • seamless integration into the windows desktop
  • immune to Minimize All / Show Desktop commands, to be always visible
  • notification by sound and/or messagebox
  • execute a program after countdown expires
  • german and english UI (detected by system settings)
  • available as setup and portable
