    "Did you test it in carwings??"

    Sun, Come shine my way
    May healing waters bury all my pain
    Wind, Carry me home
    The fabric of reality is tearing apart
    The piece of me that died
    Will return To live again

    I think Enforcer has a good point there ... while Carwings is a nice new skin, something a little easier and straightforward would be a more suitable skin choice especially for those newcomers ...

    And bear in mind Mitch, this is an open forum to which we are all trying to add new members ... It's not an "old gentlemands club" from the olden days with only an elitest membership.

    So can I make a suggestion here - without starting a war or getting banned - but how about you toning things down a little ... The entire forum can see your interest in the RR project, but I for one (and I don't think I'm alone here) don't particularly like the direction you seem to be driving this open forum. Yes the work you have doen is good, but so is work contributed by many other people - none of whom seem intent on totally running this thing on their own and more worringly as they see fit, totally disregarding the opinions and suggestions of others.

    Just to put this into context, when I logged on this morning the first two threads I read were both to do with you ... the "Deleting The Installer" thread, and then this one with the total dismissal of Enforcers suggestions ... Do we see a pattern emerging here ?

    And hey, if I get banned ... well so be it !

    and you know what i noticed, enforcer and valheru do alot of complaining (kidding, but there is truth to this)
    you both need to relax (and if you really want to put input on this project, PMs is the place)

    I have done the new installer, for months anyone could have gotten involved
    but no one has except for the few people I thanked (prob some i forgot) did
    I did debate BMV2 for the longest time, i had it in, up until the last minute when the installer size was 32mb, i removed it. giving us 17mbish installer.
    and I am always open to suggestion, but with logic. If I could get carwings working, which is a simple skin (i dont think there is transparency in it) anyone can. It has both XM and Sirius in it which allows me to help debug with anyone from a COMMON skin.

    blue, I only deleted a way off topic post.
    -Thanks

    to be perfectly honest Mitch, only twice have I raised concerns about items on this forum ... once was about the .NET issue and this is the second time. Both of those I believe to be very valid concerns.

    Remind me again, is this not an OPEN forum where members can express their concerns / queries about this project ... and like I said in my first post - I do not like the way your are steering this project. And it seems like I might not be the only one with those concerns.

    Simply dismissing people's opinions with your all too frequest "relax" comment is to say the least condescending. Yes there were issues there with RR and people could have done something about them before you, but just cause you can program in .NET and can push out updates etc does not make you God.

    PM's are not the correct place to suggest input to this project, believe me I can think of a much better use for PM's right now Mitch. Suggestions for development and improvements should be on the open forums and it is the use of this "private members club" of PM's etc that is causing so much bloody confusion as to the focus and direction of the RR project ... and to be honest if this on-going smouldering discontent is not addressed soon I do think that the RR forum will tear itself apart and loose all of the great work done by all members of the forum ...

    So might I counter suggest to you Mitch to "relax", stand back for a moment and listen to ALL of the members of the forums, not just those on you PM list and work with the wider RR community (and that includes all of those members who outside the US as well) to help make RR the best FE available for the car pc enthusiast.

    valheru, all these posts do need to be delete, you want to talk about whats in/out of the "INSTALLER" thats fine, but how U THINK the direction is going is a PM
    (or in another thread)
    i know, you havent complained much, yea twice is all i can think of, you clearly have no sense of forum humor

    I dont think many people here agree with you. Im confident the work i have done on RR is postive, im NOT HERE to please EVERYONE, if 2 people cant be pleased oh well
    your welcome you use what EVER skin you want, and if u want use the 11/02 source code and make your own version of RR.
    I know the work I have done has made RR way better, It was basicly a sitting in slience project(people whernt sure if it was dead or not), I took the bull by the horns...

    now if you want to openly discuss this, start a new thread... so its NOT in this installer thread
    -Thanks

    all of these posts started from my expressing an opinion as to what should be in your installer ... and then from there we are at a situation where you (a member I hasten to add ) are threatening to remove posts (not yours) relating to an open and frank discussion about the project.

    this is exactly the type of arrogance and lack of consideration for other memebers this I am referring to ...

    valheru, i would remove MY posts, NONE of this helps ANYONE with the installer!
    and you are WAY wrong, you are blind to the specifics
    go back and read the post where enforcer asked for default skin setting in rr.ini
