    CF 2 Beta + Map Monkey 1.3

    I've adjusted the 'Classic' skin of Map Monkey to match some of the new look of Centrafuse.

    It's a work in progress, but will do me for the time being:



    The Map Monkey skin is available for download here:

    Download

    and includes Paint Shop Pro 9 files if you want to finish it completely (the OSK hasn't been re-skinned yet)

    You should unzip it so that the Skin.ini (and other files) inside the Zip are in this folder:
    Code:
    C:\DestinatorApps\Map Monkey\Skins\Centrafuse2
    And launch the Map Monkey configuration to select the new skin.

    Attached are my external.xml and buttonactions.xml in case anyone needs them for reference for launching Map Monkey.

    I'm hoping to start some skinning on CF soon, atleast start off with some color changes.

    Anybody else working on this? (not trying to hijack your thread)
    2000 Sunfire build 100%, or is it ever really 100%?

    I won't be able to install it otherwise. If the missus says 'this looks out of place' she'll forever hate the new version!

    nice work...

    Even several bug found in CF13 with this...

    One of them is that MapMonkey does not close on exit! You have to kill it in the process list.
    If not killed MapMonkey will start the next time with error while trying to fit the window.

    That's hardly a bug that anyone would notice surely? How many people close the front end without rebooting the machine? 1.2 has spent months running on mine without exiting or a reboot/shutdown.

    Yes I know, mine ran fine too for a long time... but somethimes I noticed that my GPS comm port was in conflict when phonecontrol (old 1.1 release) was loading and MapMonkey was loading.
    Only way to get it solved was reboot or re-hibernate...

    Or if people whan to share GPS module with several programs... then you need to be able to close them. (Yes I know there are tools out there to shere comm ports)

    I just make a note of it for other people if they have such problems

    Stevieg... do you have this problem too with MapMonkey and CF13 or is it my configuration?
    I just want to hear your experiance...

    When launching MM it works perfect... but after hibernation the GPS port comm port is always in use! It will only work again after closing MM (incl hanging process) and start it again. While in CF1.2 this works perfect (nothing is altered on the machine).

    On thing I just thought of is that I use CF13 as shell and that this is causing the problem...

    Does it work for you?
