  • Just a heads up

    In RR version 3/8 and newer with (dynamic menu support)

    I changed the command "pluginmgr" to "RRPluginMgr"
    i really wanted it prefixed "RR"
    ( i know im a pita, but really all native RR commands should have been prefixed with RR, oh well )
    so, if anyone is using the old one in the skin, you can change it to the updated command, just add "RR" to it...
    thats for skins that even have a pluginmgr, which i hope most do...

    I hope everyone takes advantage of the new dynamic menus... really simplifies and removes a ton of code from exectlb.ini
    and no "ONSKINSTART" set up of the skin anymore...
    I should have done this long ago...

    also a new Skin object is in 3/16/2012 and newer, the "RG" region object, its a clickable-region, like a button, with no graphical element.
    you can use it anywhere even over APP windows
    so.. say you wanted a FULL SCREEN NAV, and you make a skin, 800 x 480, with a AX (or A) of say AX,0,0,800,480 (and maybe a clip C,0,0,800,480)
    you could put a RG,0,0,800,20 (now the top 20px are a region) that when is clicked runs a command ex RG,0,0,800,200,"ESC"

    RG,x,y,w,h,"CMD" is the object syntax

    here is the work so far this month:

    - = Removed
    + = Added
    * = Changed
    ! = Major code change
    # = Bug fix
    ^ = Note
    + Skin Object; "RG" Clickable Region - RG,x,y,w,h,"CODE"
      This is clickable anywhere at anytime(as long as rr is visable), even on top of application windows
      ex:  RG,0,0,800,20,"ESC"   creates a clickable region 800px wide x 20px high at 0,0
                                 when clicked command "ESC" is run
    + Skin Event; "ONRGNPRESS" event for "RG" clickable region command.
    # fixed iPOD database read, caused RR to freeze
    # FMPresets folder failed to create on 1st time use
    + Dynamic Menus: (see New Dynamic Menus.txt)
        Skin Command:   "RRMenuItem;x;[set]"
        Skin Label:     "RRMenuItem;x"
        Skin Indicator: "RRMenuItem;x"
        Skin Command:   "RRMenuItemSave;key;(menuitem)"
        Skin Indicator: "RRMenuItemSelIcon" shows icon(if any) of selected item in the MenuItemSet.Skin List
        User Variable:  "RRMenuItemKey"
        Skin Command:   "RRMenuNext" goes to next (looping)
        Skin Command:   "RRMenuPrev" goes to previous (looping)
    + Skin Indicator; "RRMediaInserted" is true when a disc is inserted into the media drive 
      (must have some filesystem on it \ volume name)
    * Skin Command; "plginmgr" now "RRPluginMgr" (alias of "Load;")
    + Skin Command; "CLPOS" sets selection position (1 - number of items)
    + Skin Command; "ListPos" sets selection position of current selected list (1 - number of items)

    "Did you test it in carwings??"

    Sun, Come shine my way
    May healing waters bury all my pain
    Wind, Carry me home
    The fabric of reality is tearing apart
    The piece of me that died
    Will return To live again
