  • HELP!! RR can't find skin

    I'm wanting to use RR but I keep getting
    "E:\App\Road Runner\Binary\Skins\DEFAULT does not contain a valid skin! Check your settings and try again." I've check everything and I still can't get it to work.
    Am I an idot and put the skin in the wrong place? Or am I just a moron? Because no one else seems to be having this problem.

    Run RRConfig and make sure the path is set correctly.

      Just remove the dir DEFAULT?
      Or set the skin directory 1 level up (to ../skin instead of ../skin/default

      As far as I know, RR looks in that dir, and directory-names are the skin names.

      Otherwise you can edit/view rr.ini manually

        check to see if you have a resume.ini file in your RR directory.. if its there delete it. Then try again

            O.K. now all of my sliders flicker. Why would this happen?

              You probably have sliders with the Y definition.. open your .skin files for the screen with sliders and simply comment out (add a '/,' in front of) the lines that start like:


              This typically happens with older skins only.. it is faster anyway if you don't have that definition in there -- but this might remove the background effect on your sliders (if any is in place).
