  • Fastest/Your favorite skin for low end EPIA boards?

    I'm feeling out the fellow low-end EPIA people here. I want to know what skins you guys feel are the fastest, most responsive and reliable for use with Road Runner. I currently use LSX Void and am happy with it (mainly because its non-flash) but its not EPIA friendly. It takes a few seconds to go from screen to screen and it takes about 10 seconds to load. And I have noticed that many flash-based skins are just not even usable. What skins do EPIA users like the best?

      I use the BMV2 as well.

      And just so you know, the seconds between screens is normal for the first press. It loads the skin into cache then.

      You can preload this stuff by adding lines to your ini file that way the inital load is slower, but the loading while in use is non-existant.

        Yeah, I know. I have a few preload statments but it still is sluggish on my EPIA 533Mhz board

          533Mhz epia!

          I think it may be time for a slight upgrade! Maybe to the M10k or more...

              Actually, from what I hear its not worth it. I'm better off with a Pentium or AMD board.

                if you have the space for it and a power supply, i'd say thats correct.

                  Well the advantage is power and space. There are lots of people including myself running M10k's. THey work fine.

                  If you do have the space, and the money for a DSATX or Opus250, then go for it. It will be faster. But since you have an epia board to begin with, I assume you need space.

                    zdgrey skin - load time is horrendous, once loaded it runs fine

                      m10k here running the alpine skin by more mods. Works great and is responsive for me. I have a highly modified/optimized OS that RR is running as shell on.
