  • Help With Road Runner....

    I'd like to start this thread off by saying YES I have read all the FAQ's! I spent the better part of 5 hours doing NOTHING BUT READING. I am tryingto load road runner and set it up as my front end with NO LUCK. If there is anyone willing to help I would really appreciate it.

    I'm willing to help you, but You've gotta give me something to go on... Did you install RR, from where? How did you install it? What is going wrong? When you click on RR.exe what happens? Is there an error message?
    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!

      I appreciate you taking the time to help.

      I downloaded RR from the RR Site. I used the "dummy proof" version that walks you through it. Installshield.

      Soon as I click on it I get a message that says C:yada yada yada / does not contain a valid skin. Check your settings and try again

        look in c:yada yada yada skins\ and see if you have a folder called brushmetalhonda

        if so then look in it and see if it has a file called

        general.ini

        if so then open general.ini and see if it looks like

        Code:
        [General]
        OriginalWidth =800
        OriginalHeight=600
        ShowWidth =800
        ShowHeight =600
        XPosition =0
        YPosition =0
        
        [Gamma]
        ApplyToVideo =False
        ApplyToVisu =False
        AutoSwitch =False
        DayTime =8:00:00 AM
        NightTime =6:00:00 PM
        GammaDayRed =1
        GammaDayGreen =0
        GammaDayBlue =0
        GammaNightRed =-40
        GammaNightGreen =-40
        GammaNightBlue =-40

        if you don't have that folder, file or it doesn't look like that then you need to go to guino's site and download the brushmetalhonda skin or download any other skin, run rrconfig and point the dayskin to the skin you have just downloaded, remember you need to unzip the skin to the skin folder.

                Sweet deal! That worked.

                Just for future reference, when I download a skin, what command goes into my skin path in RR Config?

                  when you run rrconfig, where it says skin if you click on the file path it will bring up a browse dialog, browse to road runner\skins\iDrive so that

                  C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Skins\iDrive\

                  appears in the box, then click save

                          I been on here non stop for like 2 weeks. I am not the most computer savy person so alot of what you guys discuss flies over my head BIG TIME. Feel kinda dumb at times asking noob type questions so I try and look first. Get's me in trouble sometimes though.

                          Now I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of that HONDA emblem in this skin and add a mitsubishi one.....Any ideas?

                            You just have to rename/replace the logo.swf file in the skin folder with the logo of your choice. There's a whole "sticky" thread about it, with logos to download and such. I'm glad you've read all the FAQs and such, sill I'll suggest you to always search before posting (specially for questions like this one).. it will save both you and the community a lot of time.
