    carwings is staying in this installer, it allows a good simple common skin
    i have 0 skin skills, I had some wonderfull help getting this skin to do what I needed it to do... nothing more, its for base installs, you dont have use it as you main skin. but you come to me with issues that are in RR and we want to solve them, its a COMMON skin that i trust.

    as for open, i have been testing my RR builds here FOR MONTHS, many people got involved, some didnt, some like enforcer/valheru prob dont have XM/SIRIUS/HD, so you prob ignored those threads, but there were MANY other things happening in RR.exe at that time. AND why I have been asked to do something in RR.exe I have done it and quickly if not instantly, example RR_Media skin checks, a new one "isunits". and lets not mention all the people who had hibernation/resume issues.

    If you cant live without BMV2, clean it up a bit, and post it in the skins forum, if its not there..
    how about code a program, that goes to a skin repository, and you can see a list of all the skins avail, and a little preview image.. now that would be neat
    and if it was a plugin, that would be neater
    -Thanks

    "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

    Mitch is just about the easiest guy in the world to work with, I would have to say that RR has become MORE open since Mitch began involvement. It also runs better and is more stable now. If you ever talk to him on MSN you will see that everyone is welcome to help with the development. I did my part by offering a custom build of Carwings so that progress could be made on the VB6 code. The reason BMV2 was included with the original installer is because Guino uses for it development. Now, Mitch uses Carwings to develop on, so hence why its the default skin. This release is actually more similar to the ways its been done in the past , than different.

    When asked permission to use Carwings in the installer I agreed, so that one's on me Carwings is less intimidating and easier to use than BMV2, mostly because it was modeled from a OEM Japanese design.

    Its funny that the veterans with huge skin collections, who I know have discovered skin_browser in RR by now, are the ones that huff and puff. Meanwhile people who are newer to RR are in awe by how easy the setup, and how great that everything works.
    Build Things, it keeps your brain busy.

    did'nt webmaster make a skin installer , with a list of skins in it which can be selected and installed, maybe thats the way to go leave the rr installer bare or with bmv or what ever and do a skin installer .
    And i do agee to some of these comments and suggestions, maybe a an updated BMV skin is needed as , Mitch did say its old and out of date,

    just a comment

    Mitch if atall pos , and you do another complie of the installer are you able to update the rr.exe icon to match the short cut 1 , i know its a silly thing but makes it more complete.

    Wel it certainly doesnt come across with some of his comments on these forums.

    So unfortunately - because these concerns don't seem to bother anyone else, I too will just leave it at that !

    As of current the BMV2 is outdated, but would it even worth for someone to make it current? IDK...IMO, it does make creating say a few screens to include in a simple plugin if needed easier. Talking to Mitch outside of the forums is a little less salty.

    Or maybe have two installers, one being just strictly RR and all req'd files(lite), and one that has the skin (full). This would only take an extra minute to do and would allow someone who actually researches before deciding to try rr to dl the basic and then go and dl which ever skin they want to take a stab at.

    i don't think the newest binary is out , that will have to come from mitch i would say, as for the installer , it looks to me as its the same or simular to what most of us use for our skin installs , which dose have a wizard to guide you through the basics. and a help file for the rest.

    correct me if i'm wrong
