    Freedrive 0.90

    Guys, apologies for my stupidity as I am sure I read a post by someone also having the same problem the other day but now I can't find it!

    Since installing 0.90, I cannot get FreeDrive to imbed within the Roadrunner window. Freedrive opens in Windows not RR so I have to Switch between windows... never had it before. Can someone help?!?!?!

    Also, is there any plan to add a voice menu to 1.0 as with Map Monkey? Its really good, in my view, to be able not only to use the funny voices, but also to turn them off, for those days where the tunes are more imprtant!

    The skin would not affect it. Check that rrconfig is set right - ie external with the Window name Freedrive ( I think ).

    Freedrive default skin or RoadRunner default skin?

    It's the RoadRunner skin I am asking about.

    That still would do nothing... I think.

    It sounds like the Window names not right... been there before... plus I think there is an embed setting in the freedrive ini but I may be confusing this with Mobile cos all I have seen is ini's in the last few days.

    true, but I switched to the .90 freedrive wthout a hitch so it's strange it's casuin him a problem.

    I mean he wouldn't have changed his config file when he upgraded freedrive would he?

    It's not like Freedrive has the version number appended to the window title and he had the search string as Freedrive .85 or something?

    Check your rrconfig settings, nothing has changed in FD 0.90 with regards to embedded.

    Had exactly the same problem. Changed my RR skin to zdgrey and FD embeds fine now. Not sure exactly why though? I'm using FD 0.9 & RR 15/01/2006.
