Are there any known issues with the Weather in RideRunner of late? Has something changed as far as on the providers end? I can not seem to get the weather lookup to work. I have the default city on NY, NY, but if I try to change with one of the press and hold presets, the secondary menu no longer comes up, and a few seconds later the default NY weather disappears. This is making me think something has changed on the providers end as far as how the searches are handled. This is the case in DFX and CarWings, using the "Search" button in the top left of the Presets screen.
Hi John, whats happening man!
I don't have this weather problem that your getting.
I tested this with Carwings and DFX, with the newest updated RR.
.......and using the last updated files you provided through the DFX built-in skin updater.

Hmmm Not sure what's going on then. I installed RR fresh on my Windows 8.1 desktop here, and had that problem. I figured it was one of the many issues to try to have to work around with Win 8.1. I have built a CarPC over the past couple days from scratch and installed XP Pro on it, and am having the EXACT same problem. (I Initially installed win 8.1 on it, but it did not like the lower resolution modes of my older 10.1" monitor. Also the "Modern Apps" will not run at 1024 x 768 resolution and lower. That's why I switched to XP.... that and FAR LESS HEADACHES! )
There must be some setting or file or something being this is a fresh install of RR & DFX. I mean it's happening on 2 different machines, with 2 different OS's.
Did you try pressing and holding one of the presets to change the city?
When I Press and hold a preset: (Or in CarWings; press the "Search" button)
- Beep and OSK pop's up
- Type in the city name, and press enter on the OSK
- a couple seconds pass, and the existing weather information blanks out.
That's it... nothing more.
Interesting, when I just opened RR.ini, there are 2 [Weather] Keys. This is the way RR installed, and I have changed nothing, other that using RRConfig to change some settings. I just checked my CarPC XP machine, and also 2 [Weather] sections.

Vauxhall Astra SXi Car PC installed.
This new release changes that entail? only (* removal of date/registration)
no new termination of the old bug reported by me?
Just wanted to report back after a month of running in my truck that this release is 100% stable for me. (still running XP :-P )
I wish I had the time like I did back in the day to put some more hours into my skin development, but my 9 month old son takes all those hours from me now. Anyway thanks again mitch for your hardware and software contributions to carPC's.
