    Help with fontend for Newb!

    Hey all I am new to this site and working on setting up a car pc in my 99 civic. I am looking for a frontend to install and I have searched and read through hundreds of posts, but I couldnt find a specific answer. I have never messed with code in a program and I am wondering how hard it is to set up roadrunner? Is there some way to just download a working version and modify it as I learn how? TIA!

    Welcome to the forums. I think you'll be able to figure out Road Runner. You posted in the Newbie section, so here's freebie link: Road Runner download FAQ

    You'll find that in a section of the forum that is all about Road Runner and there are a list of FAQs about it as well.

    Also, if you haven't checked out the FAQ Emporium, click on the link in my signature and you'll be taken there.

    Welcome!

    Thanks for the reply I have been searching through the FAQ section and everything I read says you download something then you have to tear into the code. Is this only to change the skin? Will it function before doing all the coding??

    Bugbyte,

    In many ways I am a newbie too and it always helps when a complete and to the point response such as yours is posted because then everyone benefits. So I thank you too!

    I've use Frodoplayer but downloaded and tested Road Runner about 2 months ago. I don't remember having to tear into the code.

    Give it a try!

    Ok I did a bunch more reading and downloaded allkinds of stuff. Now here's my next question. I downloaded and installed Mediacar and it works, but I know there is limited support on that now. So I would rather use roadrunner, but when I dowloaded that and tried to install it wont open??? I double click on it and the computer acts like it trying to open it then nothing! I then read the tutorial and it said I needed winamp? Would media car run if I didnt have winamp? Help a dumb newb out!!

    Check C:\program files\ to see if you have the winamp folder. If you don't then download an early version and install. Then go to http://www.majesticpw.com/roadrunner/Index.html
    and download and install the installation program...you are basically done! The default configuration setting should work. If not, go to config window and set the loaction of winamp. Now you are done!

    You downloaded AND installed Winamp, right? Road Runner controls Winamp so if it's not installed, Road Runner won't work.

    Easy way to tell if Winamp is installed is that you ought to find it in your program folder. Launch it on it's own and see if it works. You'll probably have to set it up to tell it where your music files are. Once that works, reinstall Road Runner and it should work fine.

    It's a little work but Road Runner is in rapid development. There's new stuff for it all the time.
