    how to setup Road Runner

    Hello,
    is there a manual that can guide me how to install the RR? I installed the RR and i am getting errors. When i try to open the RR program it'll ask me to link the path. I am new to this program and i am not sure what i'm doing.

    i have few questions
    does RR play windows media player?
    does it support map point?

    thank you all for helping.

    First, have a look at the RR FAQ section. It will help you figure out a lot of problems.
    Second, get a copy of the RR configuration tool.
    RR Config Updated - Blue ZX3
    This will help you setup your paths and settings.

    RoadRunner does not use windows media player, it uses winamp.
    The road is long but we are getting there.

    but to answer your 2 Q?'s

    WMP = no but use's WMP classic for video if set in the rrconfig to Ext. player
    Mappoint = yes but i hear that it only really works with old versions.

    but to get you started . depends on what skin you want to use , but download winamp 2.95 is tryed and tested , skins like mine and DFX, Teknik use winamp 5.35 this is for Visuals mainly.

    find a skin you want to use , most will have a help files or readme in thier folder to help you set it up , some skins have installers like DFX, LSX and MKIII can't say for any others.

    this should get you a bit further

    i had this at 1 point ,can't remember why delete rr and reinstall, use the rr installer , then before running rr , dl'ed mitch's new rr.exe, and install then a skin, and dl'ed blue's rrconfig . make somesetting changes like the the winamp path ,skinpath,music path.

    then run rr

    rr installer = from this thread
    rr.exe = from this thread
    RRconfig = from this thread
    winamp = from here

    oh i 1 last thing that needs to be changed is the folder name for road Runner , the installer will install to RoadRunner not Road Runner, make sure there is a space between the name , as most skins will work with Road Runner not RoadRunner.
