                  I know tell me how to connect the I-bus adapter usb? I am writing to the forum but have not yet obtained the authorization to have access to information on how to connect everything. You have a diagram on how to connect the steering wheel to carpc commands? You can inviarmelo? Thanks.

                  PS. Your skin is very beautiful and well made but without commands at the wheel ....... You can not raise the volume or more.

                    When I boot from the menu or 2 PHOTOS and SKIN RoadRunner freezes and cpu goes to 100% usage. Can you tell me how to solve the problem?


                    • #11
                      wow... beautiful.... I like ur menu screen.. where it displays just about all the informtion u wanna see.. weather, cpu,ram, gps..... and very clean.... This skin is must have for igo users for sure.... Ilist and vis should really be all it needs i think.... More buttons will make it look messy... It is very clean and buttons are large... Great skin for small screen users....

                      Asterix1965 , vol is in the mixer... I think he did it this way so, he doesn't have to have too many buttons at the bottom part.. little incovinient, but looks cleaner...

                        I saw that the volume is in the mixer but for a continued use is inconvenient. Probably the use of commands to the steering wheel is essential with this skin.

                          Yup, I use the Head Unit of the car so I leave the PC volume to about 50% and then use the SW to change the HU volume - You can edit ibusrr.ini to change the pc volume.

                          To use the IbusRR plugin you need this:
                          You can connect the [12v / Ground / ibus] cables to:
                          1. The boot, from the cd changer cable:
                          2. Back of HU:

                            I'm getting a strange menu screen is blank white, I can't see the menu icons or background at all. The only things that are barely visible (translucent like) are the bottom icons such as the CPU usage and the player controls. I unzipped and copied the contents to my installation folder "c:\Program Files\RoadRunner" and also made sure to set the rr.ini to point to the backgrounds folder, "c:\Program Files\RoadRunner\backgrounds".


                            • #15
                              I think it's because of the different default instalation of Road Runner... used to be a space in the name, eg. "Program Files\Road Runner" now I see the latest install is "Program Files\RoadRunner" ...

                              So if you can't see the background open up the skin.ini file (iGoBMW skin folder) and remove the space from the name.
