Fading trust in RideRunner
And thank you for all the hard work in this front-end and surroundings.
Been using RoadRunner/RideRunner for four years now and so has a colleague of mine,
and for the most part we have been happy with it.
Along the way, updates has improved functionability of it.
From time to time bugs have been introduced, but have always been fixed over time.
But since the change to RideRunner, some issues have come up that make us wonder what the plan is with RideRunner.
The first was when the labels for GPS speed was changed.
Instead of adding a new label with the km/h or m/h displaying,
the original labels function got changed, and a new label was created with the old fuctionality.
That destroyed some of the flash speedometer/compas swf's as they don't accept the km/h extension.
Now the Radiator option has been removed during the export of radio modules from the core.
This has been decided on the basis of a poll: "What radio do you use?".
As many (including me) use Silabs, this radio gets a high score.
But many Silabs/ADS users don't use the native RideRunner Silabs DLL.
We use dual Silabs/ADS with Pete's DLL, that have extended functionality with a dual tuner setup.
To use his DLL we use the Radiator selection in RR ini.
Sadly it has been removed now....
Is the continued development of RideRunner continuing in this direction?
If yes, we will soon have a system that's been developed to far away from what made us use it in the first place, which is sad.
What are your thoughts?
