  • send commands to apps not working?

    im trying to get RR to launch and app and also send commands (switches) to the app but it dosent seem to be working, when i use any commands RR fails to launch the app and just sits there.

    In the "Skin Commands.txt" file it says
    "Dynamic Commands: set the code of a button to: "RUN;COMMAND+PARAMETERS" will
    make it so clicking this button runs the specified command&parameters in the computer."

    ive tried using the plus symbol and also the "&" symbol but no dice.

    when i use the commands on a windows shortcut they work fine, the full command line is below. Note, this is used only on a windows shortcut. What it does is open Opera with all UI elements turned off, including the file menu


    "C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera.exe" /kioskmode /kiosknormalscreen /nomenu /nopanel

    ive even tried it only using one command but RR still doesnt like my code.

    here is the RR code
    "RUN;C:\playfile.exe|C:\Music.wav||LOAD;opera.skin ;RUN;C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera.exe+/nomenu;Opera"


    anybody have any ideas?

    thanks

    I think you still need a Double Pipe in there and get rid of the plus sign.
    Try this command:
    "RUN;C:\playfile.exe|C:\Music.wav||MENU;opera.skin ||RUN;C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera.exe /nomenu;Opera"

        it has something to do with the commands being sent to the app,

        this works
        "RUN;C:\playfile.exe|C:\Music.wav||LOAD;opera.skin ;RUN;C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera.exe;Opera"

        but this dosent work
        "RUN;C:\playfile.exe|C:\Music.wav||LOAD;opera.skin ;RUN;C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera.exe /nomenu;Opera"

        the only difference is the /nomenu
        01101100 01101001 01110001 01110101 01101001 01100100 01011111 01110011
        01101101 01101111 01101011 01100101

            pay attention man:

            "RUN;C:\playfile.exe|C:\Music.wav||LOAD;opera.skin ;Opera;C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera.exe|/nomenu;Opera"

            you mixed up the load command and the run command inside of it...

                  Okay, so I'm trying to get Mobile Emulator to run inside of RR, and I was told I need to add this button (and the associated string of commands/parameters):

                  B06,3,312,275,78,"RUN;C:\playfile.exe|C:\Music.wav ||LOAD;games.skin;RUN;C:\Program Files\Mobile Impact\me.exe;Mobile Impact",""

                  But I'm not sure where this should go. The file to RRSource.zip seems to be down. Can I get a little help?

                    Where?

                    Hi,
                    From the look of it that's a button command and should go in menu.skin in your skin folder. Always make a copy of your skin and call it something different, and work with the copy. Remember to change RR config to the new skin name! Don't ask me how many times I've forgot that!
                    Cheers,
                    Gavin.

                      Ok, my mistake the playfile is not needed (nicked the code from liquid smokes skin)

                      B06,3,312,275,78,LOAD;games.skin;RUN;C:\Program Files\Mobile Impact\me.exe;Mobile Impact",""

                      this is a button command in one of your skin files.

                      Basically you need to create a button on a skin and put that code in.

                      Then you need to have a games.skin file and the associated skins to go with it.

                        hahaha... I still see a mix of the load command and the run command with the impropper separator ( instead of || as it should be... you can launch applications using the LOAD command ONLY or using the RUN command SEPARATELY from the Load command... but in no way the RUN command should be "part" of the LOAD command as you guys have been posting here..

                          so it should be

                          B06,3,312,275,78,LOAD;games.skin;games;C:\Program Files\Mobile Impact\me.exe;Mobile Impact",""

                          then?

                            the upcomeing update of the skin has support for mobile emulator and a skin for mobile emulator to use with road runner.

                            The code for that button that im using is this

                            "RUN;C:\playfile.exe|C:\Music.wav||LOAD;N64.skin;R UN;C:\Program Files\Mobile Impact\Me.exe;Game Emulator"

                            works everytime for me.

                              then?
                              so only the path to a file is needed to run it? Ive been using the run command with load on a lot of stuff.
