    The format of the ini file is:

    Theater name,ID

    No spaces before or after the comma. ID is the theater ID from Yahoo movies. For example: http://movies.yahoo.com/showtimes/th...&date=20070107 My theater ID is 3181.

      thanks

      got it working but a couple things...

      if the movie description is too long the last lines are all written over the top of each other at bottom of window and switching between movies will leave that last line drawn corrupted.


      also there is some kind of problem displaying some characters such as the "'" ie. movie's in some of the descriptions. not in all but in some. if you need screen shots i can post them.


      thanks
      pat

          there is no ini folder its actually a file, which was missing from some of the freeway releases. heres a download of the original movies.ini file that gets saved into the main freeway directory. from there it should be easy to follow oeri's instructions in the posts above but if you are still stuck let me know

              Theater
              - go to http://movies.yahoo.com/ and enter your zip code where it says Browse by Location.
              - the next page will list some theaters near that zip code
              - click on the theater you want, example: AMC Colonial 18
              - the page will scroll down to that theater name
              - next to the name is a link called Add to My Favorite Theaters
              eample link for AMC Colonial 18 is below, the part in red is the number you need to have in your movie.ini file
              http://login.yahoo.com/?.src=mov&.do...dd_theater?id=1235&ys=oe17P2Qp5Zz_Tqaa9yLm5w--
              - write info into movie.ini file example:
              AMC Colonial 18,1235

              GPS
              the black screen you got when you clicked gps could very well be that when iguidance starts it brings up a warning screen and freeway never finds the iguidance window because the warning screen forces you to press ok before iguidance will start.
              i had created a AutoIt file to get rid of the warning screen and allow iguidance to start fine.
              - download and install AutoIt
              - open note pad or any basic text editor and paste the below code into it
              Code:
              RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\iNav\iGuidance", "ShowWarning", "REG_DWORD", "0")
              Run("C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance\iGuidance.exe", "C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance")
              -change the location of iguidance.exe if yours is installed in a different place, then save the file as iguidance.au3
              - go to the start menu and find Compile Script to .exe , which should be listed under AutoIt
              - from there just choose the iguidance.au3 as the Source and choose what you want the exe file named, where you want it saved and click convert
              - then just change the iGuidanceEXE= (in the freeway.ini file) to be the location of the exe you just created and now iguidance should start fine and no more black screen

              DVD
              dvd function doesnt work for me either, i tried 3 different versions and nothing
