    Kilometers -vs- MPH & Feet -vs- Meters settings for rr.ini

    Ok, this has been a little thing that has been bothering me for a while and just cant figure it out.

    I have a screen that displays speed, altitude heading and such. I can not get the altitude to read in feet, and it always displays in meters.

    From the Skin Commands.txt
    "GPSALT" - GPS Altitude (In whatever units specified in RRConfig -- ft or m) (Road Runner Only)

    I THINK this is refering to the International units, but I have that set to disable, and it is still displaying meters. Is there another line I am missing in the rr.ini?

    Here is what I have in the ini pertaining to measurements:
    (SPeed ATT has nothing to do with it, just covering all bases. )

    speedattunit=MPH
    disableinternat=true

    No this is no an issue with the new rrConfig. I am entering the above lines manually in the rr.ini, and it is still showing Meters instead of feet.

    if i change my speedometer from km/h to miles, altitude goes automaticly from meter to feet.

    there are different altitudes in the scene, i use the one from -100 to +800.

    this is the code in RR:

    GPSALT = IIf(ISUnits, CStr(GPS.Alt) + " m", Format(GPS.Alt * 3.2808, "0") + " ft")

    If ISUNITS is not true, then it should display altitude in Feet. Unless your GPS is providing some other funky type of altitude (which I would not surprise me).
