That's great to hear. I couldn't have made DriveLine what it is without your help, support, testing, and hardware.
Next update will have Emulator support fixed, lower CPU, more UI enhancements, and an extra dash of awesome-sauce.
I want DriveLine to be among the top three front-ends.
Driveline is already in the top 3. I'm building a new carpc, so I can have Driveline instead of the Chevy Mylink Nav system in my new Camaro. As I find and report bugs in the Mylink, they fall on deaf GM ears.
I have been suffering them for the past 6 weeks with Mylink, but you have kept on top of Driveline, keeping it bug free and adding function.
I can't wait to get back to Driveline.
With the addition of Enforcer's plugins, maybe we can hit that #2 spot. Maybe I need to do more advertizing...
Yeah, Centrafuse is quickly loosing ground with us new guys, and Ride Runner is... well, just Ride Runner, too industrial for me.

New Version Enhancements:
Moving to a paid-version format. No more free version. Trial version available for a price.
All payments received will go toward designing a new DriveLine logo, which will be visible on every screen in every skin.
Gonna spend the next couple months working on code for registration-keys and nag-screens.
Some plugins will now only work with certain skins.
Gonna rewrite the whole thing in Delphi. Closed source of course.
The program will now enable the microphone at all times, and send audio recordings to the NSA.
Music playback limited to MP3s with the genre tag set to 'EMO'.
50% of the users CPU will be used for mining bitcoins. For me.
The program will now display twice as much info on the screen. How? By reducing the size of everything so much that it would be a pain to click anything, even with a mouse.
Two words: Brushed aluminum.
Just kidding. Here's the real info:
New since the previous version:
Fixed issue with Windows XP speakers being set to zero volume when exiting DriveLine.
Added a new Lyrics service. ChartLyrics.com.
Modified the way mixer controls (lines really) are identified and modified under WinXP. This fixes radio volume controls that were not working in WinXP.
Fixed WMP video files pausing when toggling full-screen.
Added highlighting and cursor-checks to all of the buttons.
Emulators work again, as long as the ROM files are associated with the emulator EXE through Windows.
Fixed a bug in the variable-parser that could cause multi-variable strings to be parsed incorrectly.
The WMP object now responds to a long-hold the same way as a double-click. It toggles full-screen.
Disabled double-click on WMP objects.
Fixed TAB character causing issues in Event Commands.
Added an option to the settings for Embedded Apps to allow automatic muting when an app is run OR switched to.
Fixed folders not always being sorted in folder-lists. This mostly happened on flash-based devices, such as browsing the SD card on a smartphone.
Added additional brightness functions, which should work for DVI/HDMI monitors that support backlight control. Still tweaking this.
The current skin will automatically re-load when monitor/display settings change. This should sort of work for tablets being rotated.
Significantly reduced memory consumption during skin loading.
Added skin commands:
LIST_POPULATE ListviewObject idxToSelect strDelimiter strItems
LIST_SELITEMBYTEXT ListviewObject txtToSelect
LIST_SELITEMBYINDEX ListviewObject idxToSelect
LIST_GETSELITEMTEXT ListviewObject txtOfSelItem
LIST_GETSELITEMINDEX ListviewObject idxOfSelItem
CUSTOMSETTING_SAVE xmlFileName settingName settingValue
CUSTOMSETTING_LOAD xmlFileName settingName varSettingValue
Note that the CUSTOMSETTING commands will not allow spaces in the xmlFileName (unless it is passed as a variable).
The "Latest Build" thread has been updated.
Where do I send my credit card info for trial version and lifetime updates. You might as well keep it on file for future improvements and payments! Thanks SNO
The DriveLine accounting department (a Nigerian prince) will be more than happy to take down all of your personal information.
Please have the following information ready:
A few copies of your signature
Credit Card Number(s)
Social Security Number (or Canadian Social Insurance Number, eh)
Current Bank Accounts
List of passwords
Operators are standing by. :cell: :typing: :whoo: :spy:
Hmmm is this the same prince that wants to use my bank account to share in the 50 million? If it is, he already has my info from his last email. Thanks SNO
Sign me up too! :bounce::party: I thought you already had all my passwords? :loco:
Hey guys! Just wanted to chime in and say that I'm using DL as well. I love the frontend. It's actually inspired me to learn some programming languages and maybe help in development if you would like. I'm currently running my car pc in a 1994 E36 318is (BMW) I'll get some screen shots of DL in action in my car.
Thanks for all the hard work. If I can figure out how to make skins I will contribute in that way as well. I consider myself to be a pretty good graphic artist.
