I can understand that updating every few months can be a hassle, but all in all, how many of use update our music collection? Plug in flash drives to update files and plugins? With RRExtended just around the corner and it's available features, updating RR w/o the need of pulling out your carPC can be turned into a canned operation. Even w/o it, it's really not that big of a deal, is it?
Think of all the support/help guino has provided the community and how little he has asked in return. Think of how much time he has spent updating RR, taking requests and implementing them.
Now he asks for the communities support with his latest project, and to make, currently, 1 compromise regarding RR's functionality and all of a sudden it's "unacceptable?"
Simple as this. If you don't want the usage reminder, then don't upate. And don't come asking for feature requests either.

Maybe instead of having a new skin for expire popup you could just have the “TRACKNAME” Flash this RR is about to expire or something like that and have the trackname not work when it does expires that way the rest of the RR will work.

Chucks Skin - to old
Lets drop it now guys. He has his reasons to want to protect. He has decided that stopping all functionality after 4 months is overkill. Let's thank him and move along.
I know this is completely off the current topic.. but is it possible for the next release to officially make the xm and sirius art a .png? I mean the files are .png anyway just renamed to .gif and this causes flash skins not to be able to use them. .pngs are supported in both RR and flash so it should really pose no problems.
Thanks for the new official release and the hard work!
I've been testing the new code with mitch so I had an early teaser of the new functions.
The 4 month expiration is a horrible idea, yet strikingly efficient at what it is designed to prevent!
I don't think i'm going to try this on my production machine for obvious reasons, and I'll give it a shot on my devel machine although I will revert back to the October release to continue skinning for the same obvious reasons.
IMO, The beginning of the end is near when software is purposefully designed to self-destruct. Self destruction does not fit into my "stable software" category!
sonic, reaname them! and have both the dir
i think its a issue of NON GDI+ systems (pngs not supported)
if there are any people with non GDI+
(Could change code, to allow both file formats)
prob solve the problem right there
"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
well seeing as most other people have had they say, I might as well add my twopence worth...
I fully understand that guino may want to protect his software, but, and this is a big BUT ... having a "freeware" project self expire is the begining of the end ... I do believe that it's only a matter of time before Guino stops providing updates and thn we all realise that we have only 4 months of RR left.
If guino wants to move his software to a commercial basis - more power to him, and fair play for creating such a wonderful project, but please don't start hampering and crippling the freewae version that we alll use and love !
