    Guino.

    Notes:
    -Many thanks to Mitch for heavily contributing to the code and making an installer
    -Thanks to Blue for the new config
    -Thanks to all the community for the continuing support
    -RoadRunner now will check the date when running: it will not run if your date is set BEFORE its release date, or 4 months PAST it's release date -- I know this is a drag, but this is only to ensure nobody loads it on products for distribution without permission. I'm also here to commit on making a monthly update from now on, even if just to update the version.
    -The Dimmer function may not work well with iLists on slower machines
    -Documentation is updated with all new commands/settings

    Some News:
    First, I want to ensure everyone that RoadRunner will remain free for personal use, which includes our great Mp3Car community. Next, I want to disclose that I have associated myself with a company in order to build a full CarPC product (Hardware+Software solution) using the code I wrote as its base. I will also ensure everyone that any code contributed to RR along the years was either removed or used WITH permission for being included in the final product. Also, the software in the final product is not being sold, it's a PART of the product and really only works with that set of specific hardware, so there would be no point in selling it separately as-is. Having said that, the sources for the latest versions will be controlled to prevent certain activities from taking place. If you wish to work on the sources (even though the best still is to make extension plug-ins), you can download the previously released sources, make your changes and send them to me so I can merge them in (basically the same it's been along the years). Otherwise, if you're only interested in contributing to this project, you can send me a message and we can talk about accessing the SVN server for RR sources. I know this is a hassle, but it is the only way to protect the best interest of BOTH the community and those investing time and money to keep this project going.

    I'll give more details on all of this when the time is right,
    Thanks for understanding,
    Guino.

    is the RR installer on your site the same as mitch's installer? Also, is the label from slider value the thing me and mitch have been working on that displays the slider value in flash?

    I'm 99% sure it is but i'm just curious. In any event great release and nice to see you back on board guino.

        The installer is what Mitch built for THIS version (newer than his older one).

        The Slider value on labels is for skin display and SDK integration, the flash function is in there as well, but it's a separate thing since flash can't accept variables with ';' in them.

            nice one Guino, and welcome back.

            Good Luck with the project. I hope it provides you with some return for the great work you have done here with RR, ably assisted by too many to mention.

            cheers

              YES! Finally a clean install instead of having to merge tons of updates. Thanks Guino/Mitch/others!

              4-month kill date though... really? A big: DO NOT USE THIS COMMERCIALLY splash-screen or something would work just as well. If someone really wanted to remove the expire date it is not too difficult to hack out. All this does is frustrate the good users. Please reconsider a different approach for a future build. I don't want to worry about my CarPC becoming unusable if I forget to update for 6-mo. I also want to be able to setup friends with RR who are not tech-savy enough to update on their own.

                    Huh? is that what that means? Something needs to be done to "activate" RR every 4 months?

                        chuck, i would NOT use the xmmute/srmute
                        it could have adverse effects, i removed them on purpose
                        the muting of the radios, is part of how i manage all 3 radios, xm/sr/hd radio
                        it might be ok, it might cause a problem with 2 devices being unmuted at one time
                        so use with caution
                        -Thanks

                          guys, dont over think the 4month thing, what it means is guino is gonna give you more updates to RR in the future, its his was of making sure you're up to date, and preventing some people to attempt to SELL RR
                          -Thanks

                              when updating you EXISTING install, just use the installer!!!
                              it wont touch any .ini file
                              it will update all ur xm/sr image...
                              it will update any changes to hd/xm/sr objects
                              and if vista, it will install vista volume control

                              and all these are OPTIONAL
