    Thumbs up Issue Im having???

    This is not a bug, more of a preference. I love the program and the one issue that I am having is not really with your program. Its with iGuidance. The damn keyboard on iGuidance is so small that you have to stop driving to hit any buttons. Im sure I will get flamed and told you should not operate while driving anyway but they are tiny. I dont program with VB, just about everything else, so Im not sure what the capabilities are. Can you switch the resolution on the fly? I mean when you enter the GPS module can it turn to 640x480 and all other modules are 800x600. Allow the feature to be turned on in the config file. Keep in mind that I read the link on hacking iGuidance an increased the names of the streets but the keyboard buttons cant be hacked. If that can be accomplished then I am golden!!! As far as your side of things goes this program is incredible!!!

    Appended... I found lots of code to change the resolution on the fly with VB. How hard would it be to set your program to use two different images if the resolution were set to a lower level?? Is it possible or does the whole program run in a frame that the resolution cant be changed???

    I just took a trip to Ohio and I used iguidance in manual mode with no GPS antennae (wished I had it at the time though). I was able to scroll around and set a destination while driving, and yes the keyboard and other menu buttons are very small in 800x600 mode. I have the VB code to change the screen resolution and I have a setting to force or not force the 800x600 screen resolution. Adding this feature would be extremely easy to do. I would rather create my own custom menu's similar to how iGskinner or Skinbedder does it. I will look into it further and see what I can come up with. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I had that same problem with an earlier version asking me the same thing. The download was corrupt. Redownload the file and try again. That should fix the issue!!

    I thought that at first and redownloaded it and had the same problem. I just tried a third time and got a differnet error. You are correct though, it is corrupt. the file should be 16 MB from the looks of it but for some reason after about 400k or so the dl finishes. I wonder if theres a time out on the server. Otherwise must just be my internet.

    Your download was cut short, probably your connection. I find that a program called Getright will continue to retry downloading a file that you have queued up and it guarantees to get the whole file.

    Just performed a couple bug fixes that I found:
    Issue: Error 5 when clicking on <..> in Emulator -> Fixed
    Issue: Missing comctl32.ocx when opening mixer -> Fixed
    Issue: Gameboy icon showing as icon for <..> Fixed
    Fixed version 2.06c is now available for download on my site.

    Made some improvements to the Game Emulator Module:
    Changed NES emulator as the emulator that I was using was proving to be unstable. I also found that the New NES emulator is compatible with more roms/games.

    Games now run full screen width hiding the scrollbar buttons with the menu bar at the bottom.

    The updated version is available for download on my site.

    Mobile Impact is by far the easiest Front End to navigate, that I've seen. The only thing I have found is just a preference.
    Is there any way to have only the track name listed in this view, with out renaming the files? Does it pull the name from the ID3 Tag or simply display the file name?

    Thank you for the compliments, Sorry it just displays the filename.
    As a practice for myself I usually keep the artist name and album name out of the song name. I like to create a folder with the Artist Name and Album Name, then make the filename the track number and title. Also if you are using album art then you dont need the album name just the artist for the folder. I hope this helps.
