    Arrow New OFFICIAL Road Runner Installer


    Here it is!

    BEFORE DOWNLOADING/INSTALLING PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST

    UPDATED - 10/11/08 7:31pm EST

    17.6mb
    Download from MediaFire
    Download from Datafilehost.com
    Download from Rapidshare.com
    Download from zShare.net

    This is the most complete installer I could make at this time.

    I would like to THANK a bunch of people:
    (If I forgot you, jump in and thank yourself)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Fixerofallthings for work on the Carwings-v2 Skin
    Blk02si for Carwings Skin and his support and testing
    Blue ZX3 for his RRConfig and SkinTool and other advice
    JohnWPB for his advice and testing and SkinTool
    Sonicxtacy02 for his MovieTimes and testing and support
    IHN for use of RRCAM
    and GUINO who took all my work, and got it into the offical build
    no matter how much I bugged you

    Before Install disable your Anti-Virius software, the "RoadRunner.exe" will need to be added as an exclusion. Once you add the "RoadRunner.exe" as an exclusion, you may enable your Anti-Virius software.There is NO Virius/Trojan in this file, and please no one blame UPX. Its because of the use of advanced Operating System API Calls that the AV software "thinks" there is something to be worried about.

    NOTES:
    1. This installer is existing setting safe, it will not overwrite .ini files.
    (you should back them up anyway, who knows when the HD will fail)
    2. All required DLLS are automaticly registered.
    3. There is many options within the setup to install/not install components.
    4. There is an option to Download Winamp v2.95.


    The files in this installer are the NEWEST versions as of 10/11/08.
    The RoadRunner.exe is built on 10/10/08 (Details later on minor changes)

    Please keep any reply posts in this thread ON TOPIC to the installer
    like a possiblity that I forgot a file.

    I will POST the RoadRunner.exe updates in another thread.

    (I need someone to offically put this on the RoadRunner Wiki)

    Thanks everyone!
    I hope you all get much out of this, as I had fun putting it together
    Remember I dont have a carpc, I dont use RR on a daily basis.

    Awesome Mitch! Thanks to you and all those who helped!

    Just did a clean install, and once I got all my old .ini settings ported over, it seems to working like a dream. Finds the HDRadio, plays music and video, GPS works...

    I think a nice addition would be the option to "fix flash" during the install, as that seems to be one of the bigger issues with new installs. Also maybe downloading a codec pack for MPC.

    Works like a charm. Great work Mitch.

    It should help the newbies get up and running a little easier.

    i hate to be the "problem child" here ... but ran this to cleam install in "d:\car\roadrunner\" and rr will not run looks like GDI+ issue. Black/pink line down center of screen.

    car pc is vanilla xp/sp2 with .NET2 installed, but no xp updates installed.

    I noticed the same problem. You have to add fastmode=-1 to your rr.ini. But when you run rrconfig again it deletes the line out of rr.ini.

    Edit: add fastmode=-1 to the ini variables in rrconfig

    I had the same problem with the Fastmode variable in rr.ini

    Fix flash:
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/rr-f...und-logos.html

    I guess since the use of Flash depends on the skin you use, maybe it should be up to the skin to provide the means to fix it. I'm not sure if Carwings uses flash by default...

    One thing I noticed with MPC, it embeds fine for videos, but when I try and play a DVD it no longer embeds properly, just stretches the whole MPC window (controls and all) to whatever aspect ratio I choose. Would this be a skin or RR issue?

    Edit: Also, you should add the option to launch a readme or FAQ file once the install is done. Better yet, make it mandatory...

    spamminator, i dont have a good readme/faq... someone make one
    as for dvd, maybe its some .ini setting... ive never seen in used for dvd in anything i do

    machinehead, i will check if fastmode, is being dropped out
    yep it is, we'll get that fixed

    fastmode=-1 means use GDI+ which "pink" regions would be removed
    not what i would think it to be, remember i know little to nothing about RR

    It has been fixed in the NEW rrconfig.exe

    I will update
    -Thanks
