    Letters overlapping or cut off

    I need some serious help with this?
    I am having some issues with the letters overlapping and cut off...I have no clue how to fix it? I tried changing side in the RR Config screen going to 4:3 to 16:9 and nothing....

    I am running the software on the desktop for now so I'm not sure if this makes any difference?

    Also the logo is like an egg...I'm sure it has to do with whatever is going on with the letters???

    your running out of aspect
    if the skin is made for 4:3, and your asking it to be 16:9 its going to look wierd
    same thing visa versa..

    the skin's general.ini controls how things will be scaled

    as for fonts,
    is there custom fonts for this skin? did u install them?
    windows DPI setting to normal?
    -Thanks

    a lot of skins have CUSTOM fonts, all skins should have installers, BUT VERY SADLY that is not the case

    if you give me the EXACT SKIN (and i know ive seen this one before)

    Simplistique Anto 3.8??

    look in the dang !FONTS folder!

    install the fonts, then worry about DPI, if u didnt touch windows DPI, then dont

    also looking at that skin, the BMW logos is squeezed into the box in the center
    so its NOT going to be 100% round

    using windows 7, right click on the fonts, say install...

    also, date and time format comes into play, PAGE 1 in General in RRCONFIG, go with short date, short time, for starters

    there is alot ot learn in RR, cause its COMPLETLY flexiable!

    Oh man....do you know where I could pick up a newer version? I really love this BMW skin, it would fit my car perfectly and would give me a really good reason to dump CF! I just looked and RR will work with Visteon hd radio module!!!

    Ok I'm getting excited now!

    Thank you sir, I'll post the link where I got the skin from asap

    Update:

    Here is the link where I got it from,


    http://files.joat.co.nz/roadrunner/skins.html

    but here is the kicker, its the same thing on the original RR skin that I just installed? Hmmmm...is it my desktop than? Im running Windows Vista too...

    Ok, now this is wierd? I just tryed to load the carwings again and I get an error that:
    "...does not contain a valid skin!" what the heck? I pulled that whole forder out of My Documents and I for sure didnt mess with it....

    Last night when I got home from work (midnight), I formatted the HD for the 5th time and reloaded my Win7. Nice clean load, all the updates, flash player etc. Had just enough of time to watch the season finale of deadliest catch and when that was over, I downloaded a fresh RR and installed it.

    I ran it and guess what? So far the orig skin looks perfect! Nothing is overlapping or cut off. So I will load the BMW skin and see what happens, but I'm really optimistic. I still have no clue what caused or possibly causes the issue I posted earlier?

    When I hook up the Visteon and she works I'll download iGuidance and we should be in business.....I so hope so. It's been a huge, long, bumpy road for me getting to this point....

    I know this is not over, but I still would like to thank you all who helped me so far....

    Appreciate it
