I can't imagine why you weren't able to get RR working. I'm using RR with the CFX skin by b8bboi and everything runs perfectly, including XM. I'll take a look at CF once the new version is out and will probably wind up using both CF and RR. I don't think even David (the developer) knows when CF is going to be out, so my advice would be to use RR until CF is out. The FAQs on the RR thread should get you going. If not, there are plenty of people with great brains who will help you along.
