    For the indicator, I see you're trying to do something more advanced. I would recommend you to set the indicator manually whenever you change the SONGCHOICE variable. Just use the indicator code "!WICON" and then whenever you're switching SONGCHOICE (timer/button), just execute a BYVAR to set the custom indicator based on the value of songchoice... something like:

    I,xxx,xxx,xxx,xxx,"!WICON"

    and whenever you set/change SONGCHOICE also execute:

    Code:
    "BYVAR;SONGCHOICE;SETIND;!WICON;$wicon0$<<SETIND;!WICON;$wicon1$<<SETIND;!WICON;$wicon2$"
    The indicators only work with the empty layer as base for transparency, so you'd have to adjust the image to make it on top of a button. However, if you'll be using commands to set the indicator, you could just as well stop using an indicator and use the LOADIMAGE command instead (again, whenever you change SONGCHOICE, execute LOADIMAGE), this would give you full control of the image. If you want to SYNC the LABEL and image changes, you may have to use SETLABEL and SETIND so they change at the same time. I'll say that you're just about to the "edge" where you'd be probably better off writing a small extension plugin to control your switching label/indicator as well as any label formatting and so on.

    Regarding the scroll-center issue, if you put in the color DIRECTLY (without the #FRed# stuff) does it work? (this seems like a bug.. I'm just trying to define where it is)

    For the time format, I can easily add a label code for it, but again if you're NOT going to display seconds, you could use a timer and just take off the AM/PM part with RRExtended.

    None of that worked the way I wanted it to, so I am going to set the indicator with a non-switching image.

    It would work with LDIMG if I could unload the previous image, all it does it load the new image over the last one...

    What is happening is there is no label over label transparency for the scrolling command. That's why I never used it this way...

    I have two labels; one overlapping the other, so that I can "fake" a shadow effect. The color variable label is listed in the .skin before the shadow label, and it works fine with the "left" "center" and "right" commands.
    Once "scroll-X" is added to it, it changes the way the label shows, and only the "shadow" label shows (even though it is listed after the main label) the variable colors do work, but it won't show a label that is supposed to be behind it.
    If I delete the shadow layer, it works, but I lose the shadow effect.

    I tried some stuff with RRExtended and it didn't seem to work, but I am still messing with it right now... I'm not going to display seconds, so the timer would have to edit the label every time it switched... it's dirty, but it just might work.

    OK, more questions... (figured I should just use this thread rather than creating a new one...)

    Alright, still have issues with albumart. There was a sort of patch posted in this thread, but it only read the folder.jpg, rather than the embedded art.

    What I want to do is have the embedded albumart show on more than one screen, for example, on the main screen as well as the audio player screen. When I use the code:

    Code:
    I301,235,5,330,330,"ALBUMART"
    If I start on the menu.skin, then switch to the audio_player.skin, the art shows, and when the track changes (if it's a different album image) it shows the correct album, but if I switch back to the menu.skin, the art from the previous song shows.

    Is there something simple I am missing on this? I notice that if I send the "RELOADSKIN" command, or when the song changes, it does update the label, so is there a command to reload just the albumart image without needing to reload the whole skin?


    Also, I still wish there was a way to remove the AM/PM from the time tag, I tried RRExtended, but I needed to set a command to update the label every minute, but it didn't do it the way I wanted it to.

    I did notice that there is now drop shadow support for the label code, but would this be possible to add to the S command so that it works for ilists?

    Thanks in advance for the help with this.

    Ya, was running on the April 2011 release, but just updated to 5/8/11 release, which killed my RRExtended commands, and doesn't keep my shuffle/repeat status. I don't know what about the new release changed that, didn't see anything in the notes, but now that stuff doesn't work.

    I love that you say you have to assume I am not running the newest RR, there was nothing listed in the release notes from the most recent may release that mentioned anything with album art.

    Ok.


    Still nothing on stripping the AM/PM off the time tag? I know I am not the only one that would appreciate that.

    This is as simple as using a custom Time setting in rr.ini. RR will format it how ever you tell it to. eg. timeformat=H:MM, yours most likely has timeformat=H:MM AM/PM

    Nope, that switched it to military format. When AM/PM is removed from that setting in rr.ini it switches to 24hr format.

    What about your RRExtended not playing nice with the 5/7/11 release (but worked great with previous releases)?

    It seems, looking at the debug log, that I'm doing something wrong with the plugins:

    It loads Mp3Art and RRStrings (even though I have uninstalled both of them)
    It also looks like the only PIs that load correctly are Weather, SkinTool, and Mp3Art.


    So, why does it load PIs that have been uninstalled (and also not in the x,plugin list in menu.skin) and why do the other plugins not load now, when they worked in the previous release?

    It now loads any plugin in the plugins folder.

    X,plugin name is no longer required in the menu.skin


    The errors you see for RRStrings, RRextended, RRGas, etc are not actually errors, they are just telling you they don't support some new features added to extended plugins

    Sorry bout the time setting it's correct , the case of the hrs determins the 12/24 usage, so change to lower and you'll be set.

    As far as RRExt goes I'm pretty sure that it's up to current par with PI's. You using current release of RRExt? Also, if you don't know, RRStrings is now in RRExt.

    As E said above recheck your rr\Plugins folder for those reg'd pi dll's b/c rr is loading them which tell me that the dll's are still there and still registered otherewise it would have said in the log that it tried to load them but couldn't due to possilbly not being reg'd.
