    Can't get Road Runner front end to take up whole screen

    I'm running Road Runner front end with the Blue Devel skin on my in-dash touch screen, but I can't get the cool Road Runner menu window or any sub-menu to take up the whole sscreen. It sticks to the upper left corner and covers at most 75% of the LCD screen, showing my Windows desktop in the open space behind it. I want the RR frotn end to take up my whole screen so that's all I see. I have a DWW-700H manual flip up touch screen. I adusted the "clocK" setting to 100% and that made RR take up a bit more room, but it still leaves about 25% uncovered. I'm sure I'm missing something really easy here, but any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Is your resolution set up to 800x600?

    Fixed, but another problem

    OK you're right, I set resolution to 800x600 and it centered the RR front end nicely. But at that setting I can't get the touch screen to pick up the image now. Hmmm....

    If you adjust the resolution in the general.ini (in the skins folder of road runner), you can set any resolution you want. I use 640x480 just b/c my computer works best at that resolution, but you can set 1024x768 if you want. If you want to use 800x600, you may have to calibrate the touch screen using the software that came with the monitor.

    Here's what the contents look like and what you set is in bold:
    OriginalWidth=800
    OriginalHeight=600
    ShowWidth=640
    ShowHeight=480

    XPosition=0
    YPosition=0
    ApplyToVideo=False
    ApplyToVisu=False
    AutoSwitch=False
    DayTime=8:00:00 AM
    NightTime=6:00:00 PM
    GammaDayRed=0
    GammaDayGreen=0
    GammaDayBlue=0
    GammaNightRed=-40
    GammaNightGreen=-40
    GammaNightBlue=-40
