    Multiple skin settings?

    **Question also posted in Freedrive Forum**

    Is there any way in MM (or Freedrive for that matter) to have the settings file reside in a RR skin directory?

    What I'm aiming for is 2 skin directories for RoadRunner - one for day, one for night. I don't want to go down the gamma route.

    RR can control an auto-skin switch time, so I'd like my night-view MM settings to coincide with my night skin in RR.

    So my idea is to have a 'Mapmonkey.INI' inside the RR skin directory so the day/night view alters either by a set time or by my changing the RR skin manually.

    Any ideas?

    If the settings update on a skin change without having to restart MM then I guess that would do the trick

    Little bit of thread mining here... but did anything come about from this??

    I'm searching now for a way to do exactly what you have outlined MC_Stoo.

    I have a day and a night skin and I want map monkey to switch to day or night mode with the day and night skins, without changing gamma.

    It didn't happen Big pity, because it was available for Mediacar and was very useful. There is nothing around (that doesn't scew up your system !) and it can obviously be done, as it has been done in the past.
    Shame to loose something that you already had As you can tell, I too would like this feature back....PLEASE
