RideRunner, Windows Media Player, and Visualizations
OK, before I get flamed I've searched the forum for two days now and have not been able to find any answers that have resolved my question/problem. Also, I haven't been able to find any manual, the forum being the closest thing. So here goes...
I downloaded the latest version of RideRunner (very nice product by the way) and Windows Media Player (version 11) and using the default carwings skin I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the visualizations to work. Here's setup portion from the rr.ini:
[Audio Player Setup]
In RR Config I have Windows Media Player selected as the Player App in Music\Player Setup
I also have the "Other" visualization plugin selected with the window title set to WMPVis
I ran WMP by itself and tried a couple different visualizations, "Album Art", "Alchemy", etc and they work fine
When a song is playing and I click the VIS button nothing seems to happen until I minimize RR then I can see a small rectangle that says WMPVis, it appears to be a window title bar.
I suppose it's possible I'm not looking in the right place is RR so here are a couple of pics of where I'm looking (areas outlined in red)
I also tried using WinAmp 2.95 and had the same problem except the visualization would actually show up in a separate windows behind RR.
So what am I doing wrong?
Flame suit on...let me have it!
