  • Im geting black vertical line - FAQ

    I haven't been able to get Ride Runner to run correctly after using the new install. The splashscreen for my skin shows then I just get a thin black line on the screen. I can see that RR is running on the task list. Any ideas?

    Sounds like a rr.ini setting changed like fastmode=-1 (switched to something else).

      I checked and fastmode is set to -1. I tried 0 and 1 but neither worked. I've attached a screenshot and the debug output if that's helpful. Thanks for the help.

        is that path right to ur skin? is menu skin images there? (likely not, since u got the ERROR..)
        let me guess u install dfx4 and its in "Road Runner" Dir (just a guess)

          The path is correct and the skin images are there (menu_OFF.png, menu_ON.png). Is it possible there is some dll that isn't registered correctly or something? I am getting the same error with the default carwings skin. Also, when I goto my old Road Runner directory and try to run I get that same problem, even though it was working prior to the install.

          thanks.

            actualy that error can be GENERATED from alot of different reasons
            if a bitmap fails to create
            which if fastmode = -1, could be GDI issue

            which there is gdi, dlls

            you did use the installer right?
            if so that dll would be registered
            GDIPlusWrapper.dll

            AND u have to have GDI+ on ur system, which it IS in normal XP
            but if u "lite"d the os...

              FYI

              the Microsoft dll is

              gdiplus.dll

              which i do stick in the RR dir
              but it prob already is on ur system
              in system32

              ALSO WinSxS (Side by Side) should handle this
              and the correct dll should load
              UNLESS u delete, or messed with WinSxS

              u can delete the gdiplus.dll in RR dir, it shouldnt ever be used anyway (prob could elim from installer)
              (NOT GDIPlusWrapper.dll, that IS BEING used)
              -Thanks

                Mitch you are a genius! I ran regsvr32 on GDIPlusWrapper.dll and now its working. I did run the installer so not sure why it didn't work correctly. Anyway, thanks for the help.

                  yes, i was about to post
                  i unregged my wrapper
                  and it did the same

                  i dont see how the registration failed, if u used the installer
                  unless U RAN the uninstall on another directory!!!!

                  like u installed it twice, then uninstalled one of them!!!

                  that would cause the .dll to be unregged!!!

                    I just added some debug.txt logging to identify this problem in the future
                    and a suggestion to register the wrapper
                    will be in next months build

                    and FYI, reason u get an error without GDIWrapper, is the images are PNGs
                    VB6 doesnt support PNGs (too old)
                    -Thanks

                        Sorry I didn't realize my post was moved. I only installed once. My old roadrunner "install" wasn't from an install but rather an xcopy so I never did an uninstall. Not sure how it got into that weird state...
