    Thinking of jumping from CF to RR, please HELP or Comment!

    Well Flux has been working on CF3 for some time and the support for CF2 has been almost non existent. I don't like that at all, so now I have started to lean towards RR. I am a super newb when it comes to this stuff, so I have alot of questions.

    Does RR have any support for dual monitor and sound support? My install will have 7 screens and has 3 sound cards. One screen is for the main driver screen, then all the others are for passengers. I basically wanted the rear seats to have their own controls and own sound card, but with the ability to choose between headphone mode or through the main speakers. Has anyone attempted such a thing through RR? Will it be hard for me to learn RR?

    Also any other info would be helpful on RR. Yes I have searched, but I am wondering if anyone has done anything along the lines what I am doing.

    I am running a AMD Turion X2 Processor with 4GB RAM. I have literally every device on it and am also installing 6 more Car PC units for each passenger, so if they don't want to do what everyone else is doing, they have the option to work on a separate system.

    Multi-monitor support is fairly limited. However, with multiple sound cards, you can run multiple copies of RR (one for each sound card), then have it show on the monitor you want. Whether it goes through speakers or headphones would be a hardware setup thing. I can't say how multiple touchscreen devices will get along with each other on the same machine -- this will vary between the brand/device used.

    In any case, you absolutely DO NOT HAVE to remove CF2 from the machine in order to try/play with RR, and even if you like it, you can leave both in the same machine.

    An important thing to note when switching to RR is you will HAVE to update your install at least every 4 months. This can be good if your always looking to add new stuff(like you ALWAYS do ), but it can be a detriment when you have everything working then a feature is changed and it breaks your install lol.

    Only versions still called Road Runner will not display a reminder screen. All Ride Runner versions will display a reminder screen after 4 months -- you'll be allowed to keep using it indefinitely if that doesn't bother you (The current versions display a reminder for 15 seconds which you have to wait before you're able to do anything in the software, however the next release will displays reminder overlay over the skin for 15 seconds which does not block/delay or make you wait before doing anything, so you can use it normally without the hassle). Please note that if you keep it updated (at least once every few months) you'll NEVER see a reminder screen.

    LOL, I see you know me like a book! Well I know for the separate units, RR can be pretty basic. It will do nothing but use the internet, video, and music. Maybe some messengers and thats it. I have seen RR in action (Kimota's install) and I love the transitions and what not. I am not sure what skin he uses again.

    The challenge is my main system. CF actually does have multi screen support and started to work on multi sound before they just decided to vanish. It worked so so, basically the sound goes to a second sound card, then if you want to play through main speakers, you hit a button called push, and it will push the audio to the speakers. Basically it will route sound from sound card 2 to sound card 1.

    How has the phone solution with BlueSoliel gone? Currently CF users killed the echo issue with a Pheonix SOHO card mod. The issue now is the delay issue. Have you guys managed to get rid of these problems? IVT kept trying to kill the delay, but after wake up from hibernation the delay is back again. I think it was just an issue with CF using a modified BT stack.

    as guino has stated multiscreen support is there, but its not a full out feature like in CF. You can create a skin double the resolution and instruct your secondary screens to use that half of the screen.. but thats pretty much it. It doesnt support any dual zone audio. But workarounds can be done with winamp instances (one using primary sound card, and 1 using secondary).


    The phone solution is still in its early stages.. but i dont have any echo problems using the andrea array mic from mp3car.

    Yes I understand that now. So basically I would run 2 instances on 1 machine. Now the only thing really missing is the ability to switch audio from headphone to main speaker, or even easier, the headphone soundcard can always be on, just it has the option to also play onto the other soundcard. Is it possible to make a plugin that can do that? Similar to what CF does?

    Maybe someone should go a different route. Rather then run 2 instances, make the rear controls a plug in type system that matches the front. CF uses that method. Is it an issue with Win Amp?
