  • Released: BETA 10

    Dear all,

    I've put the BETA 10 on my website to download. Remember, this is a BETA.

    I've made MAJOR changes to RRConfig as it reached a point where no other controls could be added. The way I've done it now it should make it a bit better for the future.

    Also new in this BETA is some extra GPS Volume options from Tim. I've also added a few extra bits and pieces.

    I've also added some extra GAMMA stuff. Now the GAMMA settings are configured through RRConfig and are no longer stored in the general.ini of the skin (did not make sense storing them there).

    I've also added the ability to have a time to change from day to night and night to day gamma settings.

    More info on what is in this BETA is on the website where you can also download the binaries.

    http://carpc.harteveldt.com

    REMEBER: It is stronly recomended that you run RRConfig prior to running this binary. It is also recommended that you backup your existing binaries before trying these... This is a BETA remember!

    I need people to test out the RRConfig to ensure I've not screwed up the loading of existing values and also the saving of values, from my testing it looks ok but need a few more pairs of eyes to look into it (if you only have one eye I'm sure you can still help us out).

    I would also like people to try the new in built gamma options, both the GPS Gamma and also the auto time gamma stuff.

    Lastly I've made a few mods (with some help from Tim too) to the GPS Volume att functionality. Tim has also merged his functionality too. I think there maybe a problem with my 'Curve' functionality but have not had a chance to test it.

    BUGS: Please post any bugs / questions in this thread. Myself and Tim will be making the fixes to this BETA and releasing once those fixes have been made.

    Thanks and good luck,

      Ok, thanks for the info. What was the previous version of RR that you were running?

      [Edit]: Seems strange, I just tested it with the default BMV2 skin and I have no problem with the flash transparency. Could you give me more info including your scenario.

      Also, please let me know if anyone else has this issue.

      Thanks

        Hello,

        Great work, skippy76 and tim.

        I downloaded the beta 10 and run the rr.config. First I see the settings for gamma control and I miss a button for testing the gamma-settings or a preview how it will looks like. Would it be possible to built in this function?

        You wrote:

        Indicator's for GPSVOL and GPSGAMMA to show state.

        How do they look like? I can´t see anything that shows me if it´s activated or not.

          Is this a seperate roadrunner build or is this just an update to the rrconfig?

              Is Auto day-night skin based switching implemented (not gamma) and how do we activate it.

              It would be good if a text file was included which had all the features and command button sysntax in the current version, just like Guino had in his official release.

              Other then that, thanks for your time and keep it up.
              The road is long but we are getting there.

                I haven't downloaded it yet so I don't know, but check rrconfig.exe for the option to set the times..

                          You need to put some jpg files in your skin folder and add some stuff to your skin files

                            Hi,

                            Thanks a lot. It´s working.

                            Another idea:
                            red LED: GPSVOL is activated but no GPS signal
                            green LED: GPSVOL is activated with GPS signal

                            Would this be possible?

                            Ti-ejtsch

                              Thanks. Firstly, I did point out that this is a BETA so was not going go into great detail about how the functionality works. To most I believe it is pretty self explanatory.

                              Re Gamma test button: I'll try to add this, should not be too difficult.
                              Re Transparent Flash: Does anyone else have this problem.
                              Re GPSVOL and now GPS fix: I'll see if I can also encorporate it into the same indicator.

                              Basically for those that don't quite understand what this release is... It's a BETA release. It's a pre-release... It's a "may work / may not work, please test".

                              Once everyone is happy with the functionality and that it works the way we want it to, this will become an official RR release. Why am I doing this?

                              a) It's open source
                              b) Guino is taking a little time out
                              c) People wanted the functionality I implemented so I went ahead and did it.
